Shaye Leidenius of the Red Deer College Queens is the 2017-18 ACAC Women’s Golf Player of the Year.

The Ponoka golfer and second year Kinesiology & Sport Studies student had an incredible season for RDC, winning individual gold at the ACAC Golf Championships and helping lead the Queens to a bronze medal in the team competition. Her two-day total of 166 strokes was 9 shots better than second place.

“Shaye’s strong play and presence have been extremely impactful on our team this season. She has raised the bar for Red Deer College golfers,” said head coach Scott Bergdahl. “She set the standard for RDC female golf this season and for the golfers who follow her.”

“Shaye is a very driven and passionate player, and had a great performance at the ACAC Golf Championships," said Diane St-Denis, RDC Athletic Director. "When a student-athlete is recognized at the ACAC level it is a positive reflection of our program at RDC and of our commitment to support the student-athletes who want to pursue their passion in academics and athletics."
