    Walton to return as head coach of RDC Queens Volleyball team

    Talbot Walton will be back as the head coach of the Red Deer College Queens Volleyball team for the 2019-20 season. He stepped aside from his role in June 2016 due to medical reasons.

    “We are very pleased that Talbot’s health has improved which will allow him to resume his duties as the head coach of Queens Volleyball for the upcoming season,” says Diane St-Denis, RDC Athletic Director. “His wealth of experience will benefit a young team that has a lot of potential.”

    Walton has an impressive volleyball resume with the RDC Queens, guiding them to the top of the nation twice. He led the team to back-to-back Canadian Collegiate Athletic Association (CCAA) Women’s Volleyball National Championships in 2014 and 2015, and four Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference (ACAC) gold medals. While coaching the Queens, he was a four-time ACAC Coach of the Year and a recipient of the CCAA Women’s Volleyball Coach of the Year in 2006.

    During Walton’s absence Chris Wandler was at the helm for three years, beginning in 2016-17. As the head coach of the Queens, Wandler led the team to a pair of bronze medals at the ACAC Women’s Volleyball Championships. Under his guidance, the RDC Queens finished first in the south during the regular season once and second on two occasions. He was also named the 2018-19 ACAC Women’s Volleyball South Coach of the Year after leading the Queens to a 16-8 record. This past season, the RDC Queens had eight first-year student-athletes on their roster and were one of the most winning squads since November, taking 15 of their last 18 matches.

    “We would like to thank Chris for stepping in during Talbot’s absence and doing a fantastic job with the Queens Volleyball program,” says St-Denis. “Chris has been invited to continue with the team as an assistant coach, but he has not yet made a decision.”

    Wandler will remain with the Red Deer College Queens until June 2019, when the transition back to Walton will be finalized.

  • Trevor Sopracolle went from watching the Celebrity Dance Off last year, to being front and centre this year!  Trevor was the first “Oil Man” in the Celebrity Dance Off.  Hopefully the first of many.  He’s also one of the toughest looking Travolta’s you’ll ever see.  Trevor and his pro partner Alex McPherson wrapped up the show with a brilliant choice of music from Grease.  “Olivia” was amazing.. and “John” turned the world upside down.  See for yourself. .. 

    My Story…

    I was born in Goodsoil, Saskatchewan and moved to Alberta when I was in grade 3 and spent most of my youth in Consort.

    I lost my Dad to cancer when I was in high school and so I grew up fast. At 17 I secured a loan for a 2-bedroom house with a dirt floor basement. To make ends meet, I worked as a tire technician at the local tire shop while attending high school. One of the only benefits of owning your own place in high school is having the coolest parties after the high school dances!

    I moved to Red Deer in 1999 at the age of 19 and began working at Fountain Tire. Not long later a local snubbing company hired me. Over a 10-year period I worked my way up becoming a senior supervisor overseeing most of the higher-class pressure jobs and many overseas projects. In 2008, Garrett Radchenko and I started Goliath Snubbing Ltd., and we haven’t looked back.

    I have also been blessed with the best kids a Dad could ask for. Being a single Dad with three kids under 8 definitely keeps me busy.

  • Good chance most people don’t think of dentists and fun at the same time.  Well then most people haven’t met Dr Isaac Day yet.  The Innisfail dentist and father of 6 certainly knows how to have a good time.  Day and pro dancer Jinelle Themig nearly brought the roof down at the Cambridge Conference Centre.. especially when they shocked the crowd with one of the riskiest tricks we’ve ever seen at this competition.  Bet you can’t watch this just once.  It’s too much fun!

    My Story…

    A competitive fundraiser for a great cause? I’m all in!
    I am the founder of Day Dental and we have the best dental team and patients ever. With their support, we will keep the Mirror Ball trophy where it belongs…in Innisfail!
    While Innisfail has been home for my family and me for the last 7 years, I was born and raised in Edmonton where I completed my Bachelor of Medical Science and my Doctor of Dental Surgery. After working in Edmonton, my wife and I packed up our kids and moved to Central Alberta.
    I enjoy different experiences, personally and professionally, from working in a cosmetically driven dental practice in Edmonton to being the dentist at the Bowden Prison. When a new experience presents itself, the answer is YES. So when the opportunity to participate in the Sheraton Celebrity Dance Off presented itself, I knew I couldn’t turn it down.
    I am looking forward to helping this great cause, and to trying something new and exciting, and most definitely out of my comfort zone!
