It was a night of many celebrations as we once again joined Mallee Sports Assembly at the annual Sports Star of the Year Awards held on Friday 16 February.

These awards recognise and celebrate the outstanding contributions made by individuals and teams within our community to support the delivery of high quality sporting opportunities for all. As a proud sponsor of the event, we once again had the privilege of presenting the Coach of the Year Award which was this year won by Amanda Hederics of Wentworth District Football Netball Club.

As the winner, Amanda is a hardworking and committed role model within her club, with her success both on and off the court inspiring to those who have the privilege of being a part of the Wentworth community. A talented individual, with a heart of gold, Amanda’s effort to develop her club and support everyone around her is very admirable. A very deserving winner and a great sporting person for our community.

Aligned Leisure wishes to congratulate all nominees and winners from the evening, and to thank all who contribute to making our region the strong sporting community that it is!

A big thanks also goes to Mallee Sports Assembly for the opportunity to once again support the event and be a part of celebrating our great region.
