Robertson team finalists for year-end awards

Kelly Robertson’s Neepawa Curling Club senior men’s team and Glenboro’s Josh Wytinck are up for the Manitoba Sportswriters and Sportscasters Association’s Team and Athlete of the Year awards.

Robertson, who curls with Souris’ Doug Armour, Dauphin’s Peter Prokopowich and Winnipeg’s Bob Scales, is a finalist for team of the year after finishing second at the world senior men’s championship in Denmark in April. They also won their second straight provincial crown, but posted a 6-5 record and missed the playoffs at the national championship in March in B.C.

The Robertson foursome is up against the American Association of Independent Professional Baseball champion Winnipeg Goldeyes, the Allan Cup champion South East Prairie Thunder, the Esso Cup champion Pembina Valley Hawks and FC Northwest, the under-18 national soccer club champions.

Wytinck, who’s up for male athlete of the year, won the Manitoba Men’s Amateur championship and was named the province’s amateur golfer of the year. He is also a member of the University of Manitoba’s golf team. B.C. Lions running back Andrew Harris, wheelchair basketball Paralympian gold-medallist Joey Johnson, all-Canadian volleyball player Dane Pischke and WHL player of the year Brendan Shinnimin are also up for the award.

The five candidates vying for the Female Athlete of the Year award are top-ranked Canadian women’s racquetball player Jennifer Saunders, Olympic silver-medallist Desiree Scott from Canada’s women’s soccer team, wheelchair sprinter Michelle Stillwell, Jocelyn Larocque — a member of the Canadian women’s hockey team that won the world championship — and Janine Hanson, a member of the Olympic silver medallist women’s eights rowing team.

The winners will be announced on Jan. 27.
