Top Logan athletes and officials recognised at sports awards

LOGAN'S best up and coming sports stars and officials were recognised for their sporting achievements at the 2012 BDS Logan City Sports Awards.

Hundreds of athletes, coaches, referees and community members gathered at the Logan Entertainment Centre on Saturday night.
