The Alberta Sport Development Centre – Central (ASDC-C) is pleased to announce that the ASDC-Central Athlete of the Month for June 2017 is Tyla Lee.

Tyla Lee is a 17 year old Red Deer resident, and Grade 12 student and recent graduate of Notre Dame High School in Red Deer and a competitive softball athlete. Tyla is currently a shortstop (with some 3rd base duties) with the Lloydminster Liners 18U “A” team, and competes with her team in the Girls Prairie Softball League (GPLS).

Tyla played most of her softball with the Red Deer Rage where she has been a GPLS All-Star catcher/shortstop every year she has played. Additionally, Tyla captured a Provincial Championship with the Rage 16U ‘A’ team for two consecutive years and a 3rd consecutive year capturing an 18U Provincial Championship with the Liners last season.

Tyla was recently named to Alberta’s 2017 Jeux Canada Games Softball Team and will compete in Winnipeg this summer, with her teammate and sister Jade Lee. At 17 years of age Tyla will be the youngest member of Team Alberta at the Canada Games competition (Canada Games is 21U competition).

Tyla will attend school and play softball with the Reivers at Iowa Western Community College in Council Bluffs, Iowa this fall.  Tyla follows her sister Jade to Iowa Western where Jade was named a two-time Academic All-Region XI 1st Team student-athlete, two-time All-Region First Team, Region XI Defensive Player of the Year and NFCA/NJCAA 3rd Team All-American in Softball.

With Tyla’s strong work ethic, her undeniable athletic abilities and her training experiences with ASDC-Central she will surely continue to grow and develop in her sporting career! We at ASDC-Central wish Tyla much success at Canada Games and at college this year!

It’s time to take another look at this profile video of Red Deer’s Jeremiah Lauzon. Lauzon is lighting it up at meets around Alberta this season and that will mean a couple of big trips this summer. The Red Deer Titans Track and Field club member started the season with Canada’s best U20 time in the 200m and has since bettered that time. His personal best 200M time is now 20.90 which is putting him on the national and international track and field radar.

Lauzon has been named to Canada’s national team and he’s going to be representing Canada in the U20 Pan Am Games in Costa Rica in July!

Check out this video profile of Jeremiah courtesy of Alberta Sport Development Centre – Central Alberta.

The Alberta Sport Development Centre – Central (ASDC-C) is pleased to announce that the ASDC-Central Athlete of the Month for May 2019 is Jeremiah Lauzon. Jeremiah Lauzon is an 18 year old Red Deer, AB resident, Grade 12 student at Lindsay Thurber High School (LTCHS) and a competitive track & field athlete specializing in the sprints.

Jeremiah will represent Lindsay Thurber this coming weekend at ASAA Track & Field Provincials in Calgary in the 100M, 200M, 4 x 100M relay and the 4 x 400M relay. Last week, Jeremy captured all 4 events in the Zone Track & Field meet in Red Deer, winning the boys Aggregate Title.

Running for the Red Deer Titans Track Club this May, at a Track meet in Calgary, Jeremiah ran the best 200M race of his career to date, posting a time of 21.20 seconds. This time translates to the #1 ranking in Canada in the U20 age group, the #2 ranking in Canada in the U23 age group, and #11 overall men’s ranking in Canada at the 200M distance. This time also met the 200M qualifying standard for the Pan-American Games beginning July 24 in Lima, Peru. Jeremiah must await an announcement from Athletics Canada on whether he will be selected for the Pan-Am team.

Jeremiah graduates this month from Lindsay Thurber Comprehensive High School and has accepted a scholarship to Simon Fraser University (SFU) in Burnaby, BC and will begin classes this fall. SFU competes at the NCAA Division II level which will provide Jeremiah many opportunities to train and compete in the US moving forward. Jeremiah’s long term goal would be to compete in a summer Olympic Games for Haiti, his country of birth.

With Jeremiah’s strong work ethic, his undeniable athletic abilities and his training experiences with ASDC-Central, he will surely continue to grow, develop and succeed in his athletics career!
