The finalists and some award winners have been announced for the Sport P.E.I.'s 2015 amateur sport awards.

The awards will be presented Wednesday, Feb. 3, at the Rodd Charlottetown Hotel.

Vying for the Bell Aliant senior male athlete of the year award will be softball's Jeff Ellsworth, curler Brett Gallant and biathlete Carsen Campbell.

Ellsworth captained Canada to two international gold medals last year. Gallant played second on the Brad Gushue rink that had great success during the past 12 months, with three grand slam wins. Campbell represented Canada on the International Biathlon Union circuit, and won national medals.

Special Olympian Jenna Smith, hockey player Shannon MacAulay and biathlete Caitlin Campbell are the finalists for the senior female award.

Smith won three gold medals at the World Games in Los Angeles in bowling. MacAulay won a gold medal as part of the Canadian women's development team at the Nations Cup. Campbell, the younger sister of Carsen, recently won races at the national team trials and will travel to Romania later this month with Team Canada.

Some of the awards have been determined. They include the masters athlete and SCORE! team of the year.

Tom Nicholls will receive the masters award following gold medal powerlifting performances at the worlds, Commonwealth and Canadian championships.

The Charlottetown Gaudet's Auto Body Islanders are the team of the year after the senior team comprised of all-Island talent won the New Brunswick league title.   

Sport P.E.I. will also be introducing a new award, the inspiration award, to be presented to an Island athlete considered to be an inspiration to his or her peers in the Island sporting community.

Other awards to be announced on the evening include the Lieutenant Governor's Award, which will be presented to be the Island best overall athlete in 2015, while the president's award will recognize a longtime contributor to sport in the province. The premier's award, for organization of the year, will also be presented.

Tickets for the awards evening are available by calling Sport P.E.I. at 368-4110.
