RDC volleyball players named Athletes of the Week

Two Red Deer College volleyball players were selected as Athletes of the Week on Monday for their performances on the weekend.

From the Queens, third-year libero Lauren Marshall was recognized for her play against the Olds College Broncos. RDC swept the Broncos in straight sets (25-14,25-14 and 25-9) with Marshall putting up two assist and five digs.

In Olds on Saturday, the second game of the home-and-home, Marshall played a prominent role in another straight sets sweep of the Broncos (25-12,25-10 and 25-18).

The Redwood Meadows, Alta. native passed the ball effectively and took control of the backcourt throughout the weekend.

On the men’s side, Kings third-year outside hitter Regan Fathers was named Athlete of the Week for his standout play in Friday’s quick three set win over the Olds Broncos (25-11, 25-19 and 25-14).

The six-foot-six native of East Fremantle, Western Australia notched 18 kills on 28 attempts in the match and added five service aces along with a block. Fathers was also a big part of the Kings straight set sweep on Saturday also against the Broncos (25-17, 25-6, 25-18).
