Lizzie Yates’ reign is nearing an end.

The 2011 Cowichan News Leader Pictorial Youth Athlete of the Year will relinquish her title to the 2012 winner in early January.

Yates graduated from Shawnigan Lake School in June and went on to play field hockey at the University of Victoria.

There’s some great candidates in the mix for top honours in 2012 in sports ranging from downhill mountain bike racing to judo and rowing.

The top 20 will gather at a luncheon where the official announcement of the final placings will be made.
