Red Deer College Athletics is proud to announce our Boston Pizza Athletes of the Week.

Goaltender Karlee Fetch was nearly unbeatable this past weekend against the defending Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference (ACAC) Women’s Hockey Champions, the MacEwan University Griffins.  The fourth-year came on in relief about half-way through Friday’s contest, turning aside all 15 shots she faced.  Then on Saturday in Edmonton, the Open Studies student put on a goaltending clinic, stopping 43 out of 44 shots (0.977), helping the RDC Queens pick up an important 2-1 road win and earning the Queens Player-of-the-Game.  Over both games, the netminder from Prince Albert made 58 saves out of 59 shots (0.983).

The Queens have been playing well lately. In their past seven games, the RDC Queens have earned 10 of a possible 14 points in the standings.

This past weekend, Regan Fathers had another all-star performance for the Kings Volleyball team (18-6), helping them down the previously undefeated Lethbridge College Kodiaks (20-2) in both road matches. His weekend statistics were unparalleled in the ACAC. In Friday’s five set victory (23- 25, 25-18, 25-22, 23-25 and 15-9), the six-foot-six outside hitter was a dominant force, totaling 29 kills, 15 digs, two blocks, one assist and one ace while hitting for 44.7 per cent efficiency. For his outstanding effort, Regan earned the Kings Player-of-the-Game award. Then in Saturday’s victory (25-23, 22-25, 26-24 and 34-32), the student-athlete from East Fremantle, Western Australia stacked up 37 kills, 18 digs, one block, one ace and hit for 47.4 per cent efficiency. The talented athlete remarkably finished the weekend with 66 kills, 33 digs, three blocks, two aces and one assist, helping lead the Kings to an 8-2 record in their past ten matches.

In only 21 matches, the Kinesiology General student leads the league with 435 total kills and 5.37 kills per set. Incredibly, Regan has 98 more kills than Carter Hansen (338), of the Kodiaks, who has the second most in ACAC Men’s Volleyball.
