Serena Guthrie Named CI Sports Personality 

Jersey's Serena Guthrie is the 2018 Channel Islands Sports Personality of the Year

The England netball captain won the public vote, beating Premiership rugby player Michael Le Bourgeois and Guernsey bowlers Lucy Beere and Alison Merrien and Boxer Bradley Watson.

 

Local surfer Will Masterman was awarded the Rising Star prize.

He's competing in Costa Rica right now, so dad Mark was at the ceremony in Trinity to claim the trophy for him:

"In 17 years they have never awarded a surfer anything, so when they mentioned Will's name it kind of hit me with a bit of a whammy and I got a lump in my throat.  I was really shocked, but so proud and pleased for Will."

Jersey Tigers Swimmers Coach Nathan Jegou took the Coach of the Year award.  

"We want to try and get as many national British qualifiers as we can, and once we have done that we know we can pretty well on the national and international stage."

The Judge's award for achievement went to Victoria College Prep.

Guernsey Raiders were named Team of the Year.
