Red Deer College Queens volleyball team wins bronze medal

Queens 3 Lions 0

LLOYDMINSTER — It wasn’t the color they were looking for, but the RDC Queens shook off a disappointing semifinal loss to capture bronze at the Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference women’s volleyball championships at Lakeland College Saturday.

Facing the Ambrose Lions, a team they had success against all season, the Queens rolled to a 25-23, 25-21, 25-20 victory.

Miranda Dawe was the player of the match with 16 kills, seven digs and two blocks while tournament all-star McKenna Barthel had nine kills, six digs and three blocks.

Megan Schmidt added six kills, three digs and two blocks, Jade Van Dyke five kills and three digs and Lauren Marshall seven digs.

Queens head coach Chris Wandler split the setting duties with Chanelle Kayser, who will return next season, picking up 19 assists, two digs and a block, and Ashley Fehr, who is leaving, adding 15 assist.

Meanwhile, the host Lakeland Rustlers picked up their first ACAC women’s volleyball title with a 3-1 victory over the Grande Prairie Wolves.

Both teams will compete at the nationals in Victoria.
