Aspiring young athletes have been recognised for their contribution to sport during a special ceremony at The Hills Shire Council on Wednesday, May 31.
Mayor of The Hills Shire, Dr Peter Gangemi congratulated 25 up-and-coming sporting stars and four coaches from the Western Sydney Academy of Sport (WSAS) and presented them with a certificate of recognition.
Mayor Gangemi, a WSAS Council Director, said it was an incredible honour for the young athletes to be selected into the Academy, a not-for-profit community-based organisation offering development training.
Many of the athletes who complete the Academy’s program go on to represent their state and even their country, including Olympian and softball player Rachel Lack of West Pennant Hills.
