The Trigg sponsored Bream Bay Sports Awards were held in the Waipu Celtic Barn – a Trigg construction – on Friday 31 March. Ex-Bream Bay College head girl Laura Adams was the guest speaker on the night. Laura was chosen for an expedition to the South Pole by the Antarctic Heritage Trust. With four others she trekked for 50 days covering 950 kilometres from the Ronne Ice Shelf to the pole. Proud supporters and sponsors of this annual event that celebrates the success and hard work of our local sports people and teams, this is always a highlight on the Trigg social calendar.
Wendy Jambor was named Sportsperson of the Year (2021) and Masters Sportsperson of the Year (2022). Covid meant the awards had to be cancelled last year. In 2021 Wendy, who is a member of the Waipu Tennis Club, was placed at number 19 in the International Tennis Federations Mixed Doubles 34 plus ranking and 33rd in the ITF’s over 34 Women’s Doubles ranking. Other winners on the night were Liam Thornhill (Junior Sportsperson), Sam McNamara (Senior Sportsman), The Takahiwai Senior Rugby League Team (Senior Team), Waipu Surf Lifesaving Club’s Junior IRB Team (Junior Team of the Year), Shannon Te Ano (Referee of the Year), Graham Dewes (Coach of the Year), The Waipu Surf Lifesaving Club (Community Impact) and Ventry Reid (Service to Sport). The People’s Choice Award went to The Pulse Dance Team. Congratulations from Team Trigg to all the winners.
