Red Deer, October 6, 2017 – The Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference (ACAC) announced Shaye Leidenius of the Red Deer College Queens as the 2017-18 ACAC Women’s Golf Player of the Year.

Leidenius had an incredible season for RDC. At the ACAC Golf Championships, the Ponoka golfer earned individual gold and helped lead the Red Deer College Queens to a bronze medal. Leidenius shot an opening round of 84, and as the weather conditions became more challenging, she elevated her game and completed the final day of competition with an impressive 82 at the RedTail Landing Golf Club. Her two-day total of 166 strokes was 9 shots better than second place.

“Shaye’s strong play and presence have been extremely impactful on our team this season. She has raised the bar for Red Deer College golfers,” said head coach Scott Bergdahl. “She set the standard for RDC female golf this season and for the golfers who follow her.”

“Shaye is a very driven and passionate player, and had a great performance at the ACAC Golf Championships. When a student-athlete is recognized at the ACAC level it is a positive reflection of our program at RDC and of our commitment to support the student-athletes who want to pursue their passion in academics and athletics,” said Diane St-Denis, RDC Athletic Director.

Leidenius, a Kinesiology & Sport Studies student, was consistent all season. At the ACAC Women’s North Regional in Camrose, she finished in top spot with 164 strokes. The second-year student- athlete finished in second place with a total of 159 strokes at the ACAC Women’s South Regional at the Desert Blume Golf Club.

Organizers of The Battle of Alberta are thrilled with the results of an incredible fund raising effort drawing together fans and players of Alberta’s two NHL clubs for a festival of fund raising and fun.

Alumni and Current Players of the Calgary Flames and Edmonton Oilers travelled from across North America to the Red Deer Golf and Country Club for the inaugural “Battle of Alberta”.

The Central Alberta Child Advocacy Centre has expressed gratefulness to the Calgary Flames and Edmonton Oilers organizations for their support.  They also thank the team of volunteers who made every aspect of the fundraiser possible.  Finally and most importantly, hats off to all the sponsors who gave the better part of two days of their time and made massive financial commitments as well.

Here’s event co-chair Al Sim from a press release at the outset of the tournament:

Mark Jones, Chief Executive Officer of the CACAC, together with the centre’s staff and service partners, couldn’t be more pleased with this inaugural event. “Supporters of the centre have worked tirelessly since the formation of the coalition group who were determined to help with the desperate need for child advocacy in Central Alberta. We are collectively changing the way Central Alberta responds to child abuse. The Central Alberta Child Advocacy Centre is a not for profit organization, governed by a board of directors that works in an integrative partnership with the Central Region Child and Family Services, Alberta Health Services, Alberta Justice, Alberta Education, the Central Alberta Sexual Assault Support Centre, and the RCMP to better service children, youth and families impacted by sexual abuse and the most serious/complex cases of physical abuse and neglect”.

The centre has professionals onsite dealing with the criminal aspects of the case, as well as child protection, medical and psychological needs of child victims and their families. Onsite professionals include police officers, physicians, nurses, social workers, psychologists, and crown prosecutors with the common goals of: improved timeliness in the coordinated assessment and investigation of child abuse cases; increased access to support and therapeutic resources for the child and their family; enhanced collaboration among partners; more efficient and effective use of resources; increased knowledge and awareness of child abuse in the community.

Working collaboratively, we achieve greater results than any partner could on their own. It blends investigation, treatment, prevention, education and research with expertise to provide an integrated practice approach: wrapping around children and always “working in the best interests of the child”.
