Red Deer College Athletics is proud to announce our Boston Pizza Athletes of the Week.
1. Jordanna Cota – Queens Cross-Country Running
Hometown – Red Deer, AB
Bachelor of Science Nursing (5th year)
At the Canadian Collegiate Athletic Association (CCAA) Cross-Country Running National Championships, Jordanna Cota (22:10.5) ran a personal best and individually earned fourth spot on the 6 kilometre course. The Bachelor of Science Nursing student also helped lead the RDC Queens to a fourth place finish. The Queens were only 6 team points behind UBC-Okanagan for the bronze medal. The fifth-year student athlete has been one of the leaders for the Red Deer College Cross-Country Running team all season.
2. Steven Keating – Kings Volleyball
Hometown – Stony Plain, AB
Bachelor of Science Pre-Pharmacy (3rd year)
Steven Keating had a great weekend for the RDC Kings Volleyball team and he was instrumental in the two match victories against a scrappy Ambrose University Lions squad. In only five sets played on the weekend, the Bachelor of Science student put up 20 kills (4 kills per game) on 48% efficiency, 5 stuff blocks and 7 digs. The third-year student-athlete was outstanding on Saturday at home with 17 kills, 4 blocks and 7 digs in a four set victory, and he received the player-of-the-match honours. With his explosive jumping ability, Steve was a positive factor all night at the net with his attack and blocking presence. He has steadily improved throughout the season and is turning into a difference maker for Kings Volleyball.
