Teenage water ski sensation Ethan McKinnon has been named Temora’s Senior Sportsman of the Year.
McKinnon was awarded the crown in front of more than 250 guests at Temora’s annual Sportsman of the Year Awards dinner last Friday night at Temora Ex-Services Memorial Club.
Wagga’s AFL legend Paul Kelly and Temora’s own Dr Brett Fritsch were well-received as guest speakers on the night.
McKinnon was named Senior Sportsman of the Year for his feats in water skiing over the past 12 months.
Talented cricketer Max Harper was named Intermediate Sportsman of the Year, while sprinter Sophie Bowley won the hotly contested junior division.
Tony Stringer was rewarded for his contribution to sport in Temora by being awarded the Lifetime Achievment in Sport award.
It was a strong return from the awards night, that were cancelled last year for the first time since their creation in 1982 due to a severe lack of nominations.
