Around 250 people watched Carlie Whitford become Kyabram’s newest Sportstar of the Year on Wednesday night.

Carlie received the award for her tremendous efforts in athletics including competing for Australia in Tahiti last year.

Emily Lawson took home the Junior Sportstar of the Year in an event special guest speaker and North Melbourne assistant coach Darren Crocker said was a wonderful evening.

‘‘You can really see the whole sporting community together, and there are a couple of world class athletes in such a small township,’’ he said.

Kyabram Football Club was awarded the Kyabram Free Press Team of the Year for its drought-breaking Goulburn Valley Football League premiership win in 2013.

David Green also received the Rotary Club Outstanding Contribution to Local Sport award for his coaching efforts.
