rdc athlete of the week
Red Deer native Kayla Nesseth enjoyed commanding performances in 2 victories

From RDC Athletics

Red Deer College Athletics is proud to announce the Bedford Food Company Athletes of the Week:

1. Kayla Nesseth – Queens Soccer Hometown – Red Deer, AB Social Work (2nd year)

Over the weekend, Kayla Nesseth’s impact for the Red Deer College Queens Soccer team went beyond goals and assists. The second-year defender played an integral role in two important victories, helping the Queens limit their two opponents to a total of one goal. On Saturday, the RDC Queens shutout the University of Alberta Augustana Vikings 3-0 in Camrose and Nesseth was a force on defence. The Social Work student broke up several of Augustana’s potential offensive opportunities and was a factor limiting the Vikings offence to only five shots on goal. In Sunday’s 2-1 home victory over the Ambrose University Lions, the student-athlete from Red Deer had another outstanding game. Nesseth played all 90 minutes and was once again strong in her own zone, while effectively distributing the ball up field. She displayed a tremendous work ethic and was a supportive teammate. Nesseth’s superb performance helped the Queens (4-4-0) move into a three-way tie for third in the south.

rdc athlete of the week

Lacombe native Nathan Swartz scored in both victories

2. Nathan Swartz– Kings Soccer Hometown – Lacombe, AB Bachelor of Science (1st year)

Nathan Swartz was a key contributor in the RDC Kings Soccer team’s two wins this past weekend. On Saturday in Camrose, the first-year midfielder scored a goal, helping his group take a 6-1 road decision over the U of A Augustana Vikings. The Bachelor of Science student contributed the game-winning- goal on Sunday, leading the Red Deer College Kings to a 3-0 shutout victory over the visiting Ambrose University Lions. He added an assist on the Kings’ second marker. The talented student-athlete from Lacombe made several positive things happen on the pitch offensively and defensively, and many plays ran through him. Swartz played with enthusiasm and determination, and was a leader over the two contests. In only his first Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference (ACAC) season, Swartz is an important member of the Kings and one of the reasons his team (6-1-1) sits in a tie for top spot in the south with the Lethbridge College Kodiaks (6-1-1).
