Fortunately, it is an enviable quandary for the precocious sports star who excels in many arenas.

Lewis (13) plays pennant golf at Mandurah Country Club (MCC), scores goals at will for Singleton Soccer Club and enjoys school success in athletics, basketball and volleyball for Mandurah Baptist College.

He has had a stellar year, winning the B-Grade pennants at MCC, dominating local junior soccer with 30 goals and he was crowned the fastest 200m runner in his school year group.

Lewis also plays cricket in summer.

The Mandurah resident said he gravitated towards golf in his sports pursuits.

‘Golf is probably my favourite sport and I would love to be a professional player in the future,’ he said.

‘I currently score about 85 in 18 holes. I play golf a few times a week and really enjoy it.’

Lewis said he enjoyed his hectic sports schedule.

‘I love all sports and my favourite achievement this year was in soccer,’ he said.

‘It was great to have success in a team. Playing sport is really fun and it is important to be fit and healthy.’

Lewis is a nominee in the HBF Junior Sports Heroes competition for his respectful demeanour during the games.

The competition is an initiative to profile young people from across Perth, who inspire others through their sporting achievement or participation in their chosen sport.
