Hockey players named athletes of the week at RDC

Two hockey players are Red Deer College’s athletes of the week.

Defenceman Kirsten Baumgardt played a key role for the Hockey Queens in the opening two games of the Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference (ACAC) Women’s Hockey finals against the MacEwan University Griffins this past weekend.

The second-year defender from Innisfail worked hard and contributed at both ends of the ice as the Queens split the first two games in the best of five series.

This past Thursday, the Kinesiology & Sport Studies student scored a goal for the Queens in a close 2-1 loss in Edmonton. While taking care of her defensive zone, the student-athlete contributed an assist and helped the RDC Queens shutout the Griffins 4-0 on home ice.

Scott Ferguson was a force on the ice and helped the RDC Kings defeat the Concordia University Thunder in the ACAC Men’s Hockey quarter-finals this past weekend.

Friday, the second-year forward scored two goals and added three assists in a dominating 8-1 home victory. Ferguson was named the player-of-the-game for RDC. In the Kings’ 4-3 road win on Saturday, the Business Administration student picked up another assist and recorded six points in two games.

Besides his contributions on the score sheet, the student from Sylvan Lake worked hard all weekend.

The former forward with the Spruce Grove Saints was strong on the Kings’ special teams. Ferguson had a goal and an assist on the power play, and was also an important part of the RDC penalty kill, which was efficient during both games.
