Golden weekend for Titans track

Six members of the Red Deer Titans Track Club were golden at the CALTAF meet during the weekend.

CALGARY — Six members of the Red Deer Titans Track Club were golden at the CALTAF meet during the weekend.

Kassi Mcain, Mallory Murphy and Matthew Doherty each won two gold medals, in fact, with Mcain victorious in the peewee girls’ strength and speed events, Murphy taking top honours in the juvenile women’s hammer and discus, and Doherty topping the field in the senior men’s shot put and discus.

Also winning gold were Derrick Evans in the bantam men’s 800m, Sean Bettac in the midget men’s triple jump, and Breann Coupal in the junior women’s javelin. Doherty, of Delburne, also snared a silver in the hammer event.

Marlins haul in medals

Red Deer Marlins swimmers garnered 13 aggregate medals as hosts of a swim meet on Saturday at the Michener pool. The Marlins also won the team event with 497 points.

Jillian Engler, Catherine Alcorn and Brendan Laing were aggregate gold-medal winners in the 13-14 girls’, 15-16 boys’ and the boys’ eight and under categories, respectively.

Earning silver aggregate medals were Jordan Isaac (boys’ six and under), Geordan Andrew (boys’ 9-10), Adrian Christ (boys’ 13-14) and Chase Desrosiers (boys’ 15-16).

The Marlins’ bronze aggregate medal-winners were Kaden Schiller (boys’ U6), Jon Syndal (boys’ U9), Taylor Laing (girls’ 9-10), Tara Belzerowski (girls’ 11-12), Michael Pearce (boys’ 11-12) and Kahn Daviduck (boys’ 15-16).

Renegades fall

Intense heat and injuries took their toll on the Red Deer Renegades, who dropped a pair of Alberta Major Women’s Soccer League road games during the weekend.

The Renegades fell to 0-5 on the season after losing 3-0 to the Calgary Jaguars on Saturday and 5-0 to the Calgary Saints 24 hours later.

“We had two injuries up front Saturday and that left us with no natural goal scorers,” said Renegades coach Vic Michalchuk. “It was a closer game than the score indicated, but we only had one sub and by Sunday we were worn down from the heat and just ran out of gas.”

The Renegades return to action on Saturday against Northwest United in Edmonton.

Silver finish


Caymen Koivisto drove in three runs in a losing cause as Red Deer International Trucks/Blue Cross fell 17-9 to Calgary Crowfoot in Sunday’s gold-medal game of the Red Deer Minor Softball B tournament.

Koivisto did her damage with a stand-up double, while Marissa Clark stroked a triple and knocked in a run. Ashtyn Glover, who pitched all four games for the Red Deer crew, went the distance in the loss and Haley Khatib was named the Blue Cross’ MVP for her play at second base.

Red Deer International Trucks/Blue Cross was 2-1-1 in the tournament.

Meanwhile, the Red Deer Can Pro Fessionals slipped past the Lloydminster Rebels 12-11 in the bronze-medal contest, scoring three runs in the final inning. Paige Kohut was selected as the game MVP for her play at third base and at the plate.


• The Red Deer ProFlo Inferno settled for silver in a weekend tournament in St. Albert, losing the final 14-2 to the Saskatoon Hustlers.

It was the only loss for the Inferno, who earlier posted three round-robin wins — 12-6 over the St. Albert Angels II, 9-8 over the Angels I and 19-3 over the Saskatoon Phantoms.

Renegades split

The Red Deer U16 Renegades were on both ends of shutout games during the weekend, losing 1-0 to Edmonton Inter with Brody Slagman providing strong goaltending, and defeating the Edmonton Strikers 5-0. Nicu Ruicea and Nathan Narong each scored twice and Colton Alexander once against the Strikers. Slagman and Joel Richards shared the shutout.
