Jake Young has been selected as the Kempsey Macleay RSL Club's Sportsperson of the Month for November.
The Kempsey Adventist School Year 7 student was age champion in swimming, athletics and cross country this year.
Jake's exceptional athletic ability has led him to focus on martial arts and he trains out of the Macleay Valley Martial Arts gym under Glenn Stewart.
The youngster started training more than three years ago and began competing 12 months ago.
Jake has gone on to claim 21 medals, including at state and national level, this year.
Jake recently finished in second place at the Australian titles and second at the Pan Pacifics.
For his selection as Sportsperson of the Month, Jake received a $100 voucher for the RSL's restaurant.
To be considered for the award, simply provide information on the individual's achievement and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
A sportsperson of the year will be decided upon in January 2020 with an additional voucher of $500 for the restaurant awarded to the winner.
A panel of judges from the Macleay Argus will determine the monthly and year winners of the award.
