Horsham Pony Club member Morgan Lane is the September nominee for the Horsham Sports and Community Club sports star of the year awards.


Lane won her nomination after being selected by Pony Club Australia to represent her country at an international showjumping event in China later this month.


The event attracts riders from Australia, New Zealand, China and Singapore and will be held at the Gold Saddle Equestrian Centre in Guilin China.


This will be Lane’s first trip overseas and the talented horsewoman is looking forward to competing as well as learning more about the Chinese culture.


Importantly she is helping the Chinese Pony Club establish after only forming three years ago.


As the monthly winner Lane will receive a $50 gift card from The Athlete’s Foot.


Lane joins AFL players Mitch Marin and Brody Pope, aerobics athlete Jaya Meadows, triathletes Kelly Miller and Ella Walsgott and tennis player Jess McDonald as the nominees for this year’s awards. All nominees are in line to collect the Horsham Sports and Community Club Title of Wimmera Sports Star of the Year as well as the $1,000 Sports Star scholarship, at a gala dinner on February 14 next year and follow in the footsteps of previous winners including Sophie Martin, Maggie Caris, Jesse Iese, Darcy Tucker, Jannik Blair, Ken Bald, Alethea Sedgman and Mark O’Brien.


Nominations for the Horsham Sports and Community Club Sports Star of the Year Award close the last day of each month and can be made online at the WRSA website www.wrsa.org.au.


If you know of someone who is doing well at their sport and deserves some recognition, why not nominate them in the Sports Star of the Month.  All nominees in the monthly award will be presented with specially made sports star certificates and the monthly winner receives a free ticket to the annual presentation and a specially struck medallion from Wimmera Trophies and Gifts.
