Upper 4 pupil, Esther Adeshina, won the Junior Sportswoman Award of the Year this week for her achievements in tennis. The 2016 Hampshire and Isle of Wight Sports Awards took place on Thursday 17 March at Southampton Football Club. It was a pleasant surprise for Esther and her family, given the calibre of the other nominees in that category. Although she wasn’t there to collect her award, due to her being away at training camp, it was an evening of celebration for her family who attended on her behalf.
Esther, who is 14-years-old, was one of the three finalists nominated for the Junior Sportswoman Award of the Year in the Hampshire and Isle of Wight Sports Awards. It was a tough category and just to be recognised was itself a huge achievement. Warm congratulations go to Esther for her award.
