  • The Alberta Sport Development Centre – Central is pleased to announce that the ASDC-Central Female Athlete of the Month for March 2018 is Ruby Butler.

    Ruby Butler is a 15 year old, grade 10 student at Notre Dame High School, Red Deer resident and a competitive Artistic Gymnast at Exelta Gymnastics for the past ten years.

    Ruby began gymnastics when she was 14 months old, and loved somersaulting, climbing and trampolining.  She began competitive gymnastics when she was 4 years old and is still excited every day to go the gym.

    Ruby maintains Honors academic status at school while training over 22 hours per week at Exelta as well as coaching in the Exelta recreation program every week.

    Ruby excels at the Vault event of competitive Artistic Gymnastics and this has seen her on the podium for Vault in almost every competition she has entered this season.

    Now in her 3rd year with ASDC-C, Ruby and her coach, Barb Bilsborrow, both agree that ASDC has helped Ruby with the mental side of her sport and has allowed her overcome some of her specific fears on the balance beam and allows her to focus on the positive.  With Ruby’s strong work ethic, her undeniable athletic abilities and her training experiences with ASDC-Central she will surely continue to grow, develop and succeed in her Artistic Gymnastics career!

    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.

    RED DEER SENIOR RUSTLERS DEFEAT MORINVILLE KINGS

    The Senior Rustlers hand Morinville Kings first regulation loss of season

    The Red Deer Senior Rustlers are back in the win column following a 3-2 win over the NCHL-leading Morinville Kings on Saturday, becoming the first team to do so in regulation this season.

    Coming off a narrow 4-3 loss to the Kings on November 24, the Rustlers came out of the gate with a three-goal first period, with two goals from Connor Patchett and another from Ty Berkholtz. Berkholtz added an assist on both Patchett goals to finish the game with three points, giving him the team lead with 14 points on the season.

    Brett Bothwell

    The Kings finally solved Rustlers netminder Brett Bothwell late in the second period, and would add another with a two-man advantage in the third, but the Rustlers shut the door the rest of the way to preserve the win.

    Special teams were the difference maker for the Rustlers, who went 2-for-5 on the powerplay, and an impressive 7-for-8 on the penalty kill, including a big five-on-three kill in the opening minutes of the game.

    “This was a huge win for us, both in the standings, and mentally,” said Bothwell, who made 30 saves for his fourth win of the season. “We’ve faced some adversity over the past month, but tonight was an opportunity to bounce back and make a big statement against one of, if not the top team in the league, and we did just that.”

    The Senior Rustlers improve to 7-3 on the season, and stayed perfect at home with their fifth straight win at the Penhold Multiplex.

    The Rustlers are back home for the last time in 2018 on Saturday, December 15 for another important match-up against the Eckville Eagles, who also sit near the top of the NCHL standings. Game time is 7:30pm. The 2018 portion of the season closes out in Sylvan Lake on Friday, December 21 against the Pirates.
