RDC Kings volleyball win ACAC title

Kings 3 Kodiaks 1

The RDC Kings are back on top of the provincial volleyball world.

After winning seven consecutive Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference men’s volleyball titles from 2011-2017, RDC found their way back to the peak in 2020.

RDC won the gold medal match Saturday at the ACAC Championships in Lethbridge, taking down the host Lethbridge College Kodiaks in four sets (23-25, 25-19, 25-20, 25-23).

Fourth-year Kings outside hitter Patrik Toze had a big night with 15 kills, two stuff blocks and one ace to lead the way for RDC. Kings rookie Carter Hills was also big, pitching in 16 kills with only two errors in the four-set match. Kings setter Tom Wass had 37 assists in the win.

The Kings will travel to St. Thomas University in Fredricton, New Brunswick for the Canadian Collegiate Athletic Association Men’s Volleyball National Championship from March 12-15.
