Young Highlands talent has been recognised by the Berrima District Sports Award committee.
Both junior and senior winners for the month of April are under 18 years of age and have been making waves in their sporting fields.
Brielle Powell was named the junior winner for April in recognition of her equestrian achievements.
The young rider competes in a number of equestrian events at the 2017 Sydney Royal Easter Show.
In the Australian Stock Horse classes she won three first places, one third and a fourth.
Brielle also won the R M Williams trophy for most versatile stock horse.
She received Reserve Champion in the ridden welsh pony and, in various other pony classes, won three first places, one third and a fourth.
Riding as a member of the Zone 10 Pony Club team, Brielle won a second in the Fours and a first place in the Pairs.
In the individual Pony Club classes, she was awarded Supreme Champion under-17 rider and Champion rider 13 to under-15.
Not surprisingly, Brielle was the top youth rider at the Show.
She is a member of the Loopline Pony Club and, when not riding, attends Chevalier College.
Brielle is currently training for the Stock Horse Youth Nationals which will be held in Narrabri during October.
The Senior recipient of the Berrima District Sports Award for April, Eligh Morris, is making a name for himself in the sport of Mountain Running.
At only 17 years of age, Eligh placed second in the Junior Men's (16-20 years) Australian Mountain Running Championships.
He has qualified to compete at the World Mountain Running Championships in Premana, Italy in July. The course will be on a 6.5km long ring with a 430m difference in altitude.
Eligh also qualified last year but was deemed too young to compete on the international stage.
This only made him more determined and he trained extra hard with the support of his coach and family.
Eligh has only been competing in Mountain Running for a couple of years but has a background in athletics, having joined Bowral Little Athletics at the age of six.
He also a competes in cross country events and is a member of Kembla Joggers.
In between training sessions, Eligh is studying for the HSC at Bowral High.
