Congratulations to local golfer Brooke Henderson, the winner of the Canadian Press Bobbie Rosenfeld Award for Canadian Female Athlete of The Year, for the second time in three years. Brooke is the 20-year-old golf sensation from Smiths Falls, who won two LPGA Tour events this season and had eight top-10 finishes. She picked up 56 per cent of the votes in an online poll of broadcasters and sports editors from across the country. Tennis player Denis Shapovalov won the Lionel Conacher Award as Canada’s male athlete of the year on Tuesday. The Canadian press team of the year honours will be announced Thursday.
