Red Deer College Athletics is proud to announce their latest Boston Pizza Athletes of the Week.
Shaye Leidenius – Queens Golf
Hometown – Ponoka, AB
Kinesiology & Sport Studies (2nd year)
At the Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference (ACAC) Golf North Regionals, Shaye Leidenius shot an opening round of 82 on Saturday and followed that up with another impressive 82 on Sunday. The Kinesiology and Sport Studies student earned first place among ACAC women with a weekend total of 164 and defeated the second place golfer by 4 strokes. Leidenius helped lead the RDC Queens to a second place team finish.
Hugo Janssen – Kings Soccer
Hometown – Lacombe, AB
Open Studies (1st year)
Against the Olds College Broncos on Saturday, Kings Soccer player Hugo Janssen was a force on the pitch. The midfielder from Lacombe created several quality scoring opportunities and with time winding down in a tied game, Janssen scored the game winning goal in dramatic fashion. The Open Studies student raced down the left side of the field, beat a defender and sent a high arcing shot past the goalkeeper and into the right side of the net for the winner. Janssen was also named the RDC Kings player-of-the-game and helped the Kings earn a victory in their home opener. On Sunday against SAIT, Janssen helped create opportunities for the Kings to score and displayed a strong work ethic despite a 2-0 setback against the Trojans. Janssen was once again a positive factor on the pitch.
