RDC Volleyball setters named RDC Athletes of the Week

Emma Letekman and Tom Wass earned the award this week

It was a successful weekend on the court for both RDC volleyball teams and as a result, setters from the Kings and Queens were named RDC Athletes of the Week.

First-year setter Emma Letkeman earned the honour for the Queens, while third-year Australian setter Tom Wass received the award for the Kings.

Letkeman, a rookie out of Victoria, B.C., helped the Queens to a pair of wins over the SAIT Trojans. She recorded 58 assists over seven sets, as well as 10 digs, seven kills, six aces and one block. Friday, she had 31 assists in four sets and Saturday, she added 27 more in a three-set sweep over SAIT. Letkeman is third in the Alberta Colleges Atheltic Conference with 8.10 assists-per-set through 11 matches this year.

Wass was equally effective in two victories for the Kings, finishing with 56 assists, 12 digs, three kills, three stuff blocks and two service aces over seven sets.

He had 28 assists Friday, was player of the game and picked up another 28 Saturday in a four-set victory. With the win, the Kings improved to 9-3 on the year and are second in the ACAC South. Wass is also having a stellar season individually, as he leads the ACAC with 9.2 assists per set. He’s the only setter over nine in that category.
