Two Red Deer College students were chosen athletes of the week on Monday.
Cassidy Anderson, a Queens Hockey player, helped lead the team to an Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference (ACAC) silver medal this past weekend.
On Thursday, the fifth-year defenceman scored in Edmonton and led by example. Over Thursday and Friday, the Bachelor of Business Administration student displayed a strong work ethic and was one of the heart-and-soul players for the Queens while contributing at both ends of the ice. The talented defender left it all on the ice with a tremendous effort in her final ACAC hockey game on Friday.
RDC athlete, Adam Wass, played an important role in helping the RDC Kings Indoor Track team win a bronze medal at the ACAC Indoor Track Championships this past weekend.
The Bachelor of Science student ranked in the top ten in many races and contributed the most points for the Kings.
The second-year student-athlete placed fifth in the 3,000 metres finals (9:42.08), seventh over 1,500 metres (4:30.81) and sixth (2:50.10) in the 1,000 metres. The runner from Lacombe was a member of the Kings 4×400 metres relay team which finished fourth and just missed a bronze medal by less than half a second.
