Athlete of the Year Voting: The Final Four Announced

sportsballs1We’ve tabulated the votes, and narrowed the field. Now it’s time to announce the Final Four athletes who will move on to this week’s 2013 Chatham-Kent Male and Female Athlete of the year voting.

In total, more than 3200 votes were counted for the Male and Female nominees. On the men’s side, the four finalists pulled far and ahead. While all are deserving, the Final Four, who will be eligible for voting this week, include, in alphabetical order:

  • Max Allin
  • Dane Fox
  • Chad Laprise
  • Derek Whitson

Honourable mention in the men’s vote goes to Dresden’s TJ Brodie, who received the fifth most votes.

In the women’s vote, eight different athletes took over 100 votes each. While each were very deserving of recognition, only four will be moving on to this week’s Final Four voting. The finalists include, in alphabetical order:

  • Jewelian Blackbird
  • Bridget Carleton
  • Breanne Nicholas
  • Sydnee Nolan

Honourable mention in the women’s vote goes to Emily VanDamme, Shauney Fischer, Erin Sarapnickas, and Mackenzie Butzer.

Congratulation to all athlete who were nominated. You’ve had a very successful year, and we know you’ll be doing great things in 2014.

For those who advanced to our Final Four, it’s time to rally the troops, before we name the Male and Female Athletes of the Year. Voting runs Tuesday through Friday!
