Mr BUCHHOLZ (Wright) (16:40): I rise to celebrate the success of some of the young sportswomen and sportsmen of my electorate. Congratulations to the Wright recipients of round 1 of this year's Local Sporting Champions grants program. I recently held a ceremony to present our local sporting stars with their awards, and there are a heap of them. I say to our local sporting champs: I hope with this money you will continue hopping, skipping and jumping to pursue your sporting dreams. The starter's gun has gone off and you are chasing your sporting dreams. I know that you're on track to a brighter future. You are an inspiration to other local sporting champions and a shining example of the calibre of sporting talent in our entire region. I want to make particular mention of Jasmine Barry for soccer; Bray Bowden for motorcycling; Jacob Cutler for jujitsu; Kya Foxwell for baseball; Chelsea Gatti for equestrian; Eithen Leard for wheelchair basketball; Rieanna Noga for hockey; Hugh Pfitzner for tennis; Jayden Crighton and Daniel Ost for indoor cricket; Mollie and Sophie O'Callaghan for swimming; Cruz Lemming, Sebastian Millard and Jacob Reid for rugby union; and Megan Jones, Harrison Leonard, Camryn Newton-Smith, Sarah Thorpe and Sam Windsor for athletics. Congratulations to all of you. You're the stars of the future. You make an enormous contribution to our electorate. We look forward to seeing you in the future.
