Coming off the holiday break, a pair of RDC athletes pulled off some strong performances to earn Athlete of the Week honours.
Fifth-year Kinesiology and Sport Studies student Miranda Dawe, outside hitter for the Queens volleyball team had a pair of strong matches on the road.

In that match, she also chipped in 11 digs, three blocks and one assist. In Friday’s match, she had six kills, three digs, and a block. The victories improved the Queens to 11-3 on the year and they extended their win streak to seven straight matches.
Ty Mappin, a first-year open studies student from Big Valley was clutch in back-to-back wins for the RDC Kings on the ice.
He had a goal and two assists in a 5-3 victory on home ice Friday night, followed by a goal and a helper in a 5-4 win over the Concordia Thunder in Edmonton Saturday.
Mappin has 13 points in 15 games this year and the Kings are now 11-4-1-0 on the year and sit second in the Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference play.
