Ritorya Tamilo from Baradene College of the Sacred Heart won the Young Sportswoman of the Year for Basketball and Jacob Avery from Sacred Heart College winning the Young Sportsman of the Year for Rowing at the Young Sportsperson of the Year Awards.
The event was held at Eden Park with just over six hundred people in attendance. The Awards have been held since 1991 to celebrate the outstanding sporting achievements of Auckland secondary school students.
Guest speaker Sarah Cowley-Ross inspired the audience with Wendy Petrie the Master of Ceremonies and the Saint Kentigern College Kapa Haka opening the evening with their performance.
