ASDC Features the Most Dominant Team In Alberta Rugby History

Published




The Alberta Sport Development Centre – Central (ASDC-C) is pleased to announce that the ASDC-Central Athletes of the Month for September 2017 are the Titans Rugby U18 Girls Team.

In a departure for the Athlete of the Month award ASDC-Central has chosen the entire Titans U18 team as worthy recipients for capturing Gold at the Alberta Rugby Union’s 2017 U18 Girls Provincial Championship with an utterly dominant 107 – 0 win over the Edmonton Nor’westers.

Both teams entered the championship game undefeated for the season but it was the Titans who proved their dominance.  The Titans outscored their opponents 722 – 81 over the course of the season.  When discussing their performance it is important to remember that only a few short seasons ago the Titans were coming off a winless season.  The Titans are composed of 28 girls from 5 communities (Red Deer – 17; Rimbey – 4; Rocky Mountain House – 4; Lacombe – 2; and Byemoor – 1).

The Titans were led by Courtney Holtkamp, Lora Lee, Leah Brunner, and Gwen Fillinger to name a few. Courtney & Jada Holtkamp, Leah Brunner, Gwen Fillinger, Lora Lee and Rachel Sever all went on to play with Team Alberta U18 this summer, as did Camryn Holland with Team Alberta U16. Courtney Holtkamp led Team Alberta (captain and tournament leading scorer) to a Gold Medal at Nationals. Courtney Holtkamp (ASDC-Central’s Athlete of the Month for April 2016) also competed for Team Canada U18’s in international play competing in Ottawa this summer vs USA U18’s in a 15’s competition. Courtney recently returned from France where she competed with Team Canada U18’s in a Rugby 7’s competition..

Two years ago, Titans Rugby (through the initiative of Head Coach Kenton Poelzer) created the School of Rugby initiative and partnered with ASDC-Central to provide strength and conditioning, mental skills and nutrition seminars to the areas rugby youth. It appears that that partnership is paying dividends.

ASDC-Central thanks Tom Bast Sports for celebrating the ASDC-Central Athlete of the Month recipients by the provision of commemorative apparel for each recipient.

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!
