Hills and Fetch RDC Athletes of the Week

Two athletes at the opposite ends of their Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference careers were honoured as RDC Athletes of the Week.

Karlee Fetch, a fifth-year goalie for Queens’ hockey, won the award alongside first-year outside hitter Carter Hills of Kings’ volleyball.

Fetch picked up a pair of victories on the weekend, including a 1-0 shutout on home ice against the SAIT Trojans. Her first shutout of the ACAC season Friday was a 27-save masterpiece that helped the Queens hold steady in the standings. Saturday, she boosted the Queens to a 2-1 win in Calgary, also over the Trojans. She made 32 saves in that victory.

Fetch, a Prince Albert native in her final year of ACAC eligibility is fourth across the league in save percentage at 0.922 and fourth in goals against average with a 2.02. She has an 8-3 record on the year and is also third in the league in winning percentage with a 0.727.

The Queens will visit the MacEwan University Griffins Friday and host them Saturday at the Gary W. Harris Canada Games Centre.

Hills, a 6-foot-2 outside hitter is having an outstanding rookie campaign for the Kings. The Legal, Alta., product had a huge impact on a pair of weekend wins for RDC. Friday, he pitched in 11 kills, eight digs and two aces in a sweep over the Olds College Broncos. Saturday, he had a game-high 15 kills, three stuff blocks, two digs and one ace in another win over the Broncos.

The first-year is now averaging 2.88 kills-per-set, leading the Kings and ninth overall in the ACAC. He has 193 kills in 67 sets this season.

The Kings host the Briercrest College Clippers for a pair of matches Friday and Saturday.
