Kayser records 2,000th assist with Red Deer College Queens volleyball to earn athlete of the week honours

In honouring this week’s top athletes, Red Deer College recognized both the week and the long career of one of their volleyballers.

Channelle Kayser, a fifth year bachelor of science in nursing student, recorded her 2,000th assist in the Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference.

Over the weekend against the Ambrose University Lions, the setter had 29 assists, seven digs, one service ace, one kill and one stuff block in a three-set win over the Lions on Sunday and a 17 assist, 13 digs, one kill and one stuff block in a loss on Saturday.

Trevor Costello, a defenceman for the Kings hockey team, was key to the team picking up three of a possible four points over the weekend.

The management certificate student, in his second year, had the tying goal against the SAIT Trojans on Friday in Calgary. The 4-3 overtime loss. Then, he scored the double overtime winner, on a backhanded shot, on Saturday against the Trojans in Red Deer. He also played strong defensively over the weekend, including on several penalty kills.

This week, the curling teams compete for medals at the ACAC Curling Championships in Camrose from Feb. 16 to 18.

The volleyball teams host the Medicine Hat College Rattlers for a weekend set of four games at the college. The games go Friday night at 6 p.m. for the Queens and 8 p.m. for the Kings and Saturday afternoon at 1 p.m. for the Queens and 3 p.m.

The basketball teams have a home-and-home series against the Lions. On Friday night they play in Calgary, then on Saturday they play at the college with the Queens started at 6 p.m. and the Kings playing at 8 p.m.

In Hockey, the Queens have a home-and-home set against the NAIT Ooks. It starts on Thursday at 7 p.m. at the NexSource Centre, 4823 49th Ave. in Sylvan Lake, and it finishes Saturday at 6 p.m. at Nait.
