Port Lincoln Rotary has presented a Sports Person of the Year for many decades now but this new award pulls together Rotary's and other similar awards, to make the one premier award.
Cricketer Ben Smith (Senior Sports Person) and young tennis star Charlotte Nicholls (Junior Sports Person) were recognised as the inaugural winners of this new award.
