Hometown – Binscarth, Manitoba
Bachelor of Education Elementary (2nd year)
Sydnee Decorby had an excellent weekend on the ice, helping the RDC Queens earn three of a possible four points in the standings against the SAIT Trojans.
This past Friday at the Gary W. Harris Canada Games Centre, the Bachelor of Education Elementary student scored the lone goal for the Queens in a close 2-1 setback to the Trojans in a shootout.
Then on Saturday, the talented student-athlete from Binscarth, Manitoba assisted on the game-winning-goal, pushing RDC to a 2-1 road victory in Calgary, while also taking care of her own zone. In only her second-year, the hard-working defender has shown tremendous growth.
Hometown – Adelaide, Australia
Bachelor of Arts (2nd year)
Thomas Wass made a positive impact with the Red Deer College Kings this past weekend against the visiting Briercrest College Clippers.
On Friday, the second-year setter played a prominent role in the Kings’ three set victory (25-15, 25-21 and 26-24), contributing a remarkable 42 assists, six digs and four kills.
For his outstanding performance, the Bachelor of Arts student was named the Kings Player-of-the-Game."I thought that Tom had his best match of the season, in terms of spreading out the offence and the player-of-the-game was well deserved," says Kings Head Coach Aaron Schulha. "Forty-two assists in three sets is quite a bit. He did a good job in terms of mixing things."
Then on Saturday, the setter from Adelaide, Australia helped the Kings down the Clippers in five sets (23-25, 25-17, 25-23, 20-25 and 15-9).
Thomas had impressive statistics once again, accumulating 55 assists, 11 digs, four kills and one ace.
