Garez and Morrison named RDC Athletes of the Week

Soccer and golf performances headlined the RDC Athletics Athlete of the Week nominations for Sept. 18-24.

First-year Queens soccer player Reesa Garez helped the team to a 5-0 shutout over the Lakeland Rustlers Saturday. Garez had the opening goal and added a helper on the second tally of the game. Garez has been a leader for the Queens in the early going this season, a rare quality for a first-year player. She’s also been a huge piece of the puzzle beyond her statistical contributions.

RDC Kings golfer Cole Morrison led the team to a tidy first place finish at the Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference South Regionals in Medicine Hat. The Red Deer native, in his third year finished second overall individually with a 69 on Saturday and a 76 Sunday. Next weekend, the RDC golf team will compete at the ACAC Golf Championships in Nisku for a chance to earn a spot at nationals.
