Ollie Wines is the Senior Sportstar of the Year.


The 25th annual Sportstar of the Year awards were celebrated at Moama Bowling Club tonight, with Robert DiPierdomenico the guest speaker.

Echuca footballer Oliver Wines is the Senior Sportstar of the Year winner, while Moama soccer player Tom Leech received the Junior Sportstar of the Year award.

Wines, who was drafted by Port Adelaide at pick seven in the national draft in November, made his debut for the club during the NAB Cup yesterday.

Leech had an impressive all-round year, captaining a team on an overseas trip, while he also made his senior debut in the Victorian Premier League.

Other winners on the night were Echuca-Moama Hockey Club’s Renee Davison (Spirit of Sport), Moama-Echuca Border Raiders’ Darryl Brown (Coach of the Year) and the Moama-Echuca Border Raiders women’s team (Team of the Year).

Full coverage of the evening will be in Wednesday’s Riverine Herald.
