RDC Athletics has announced its latest Boston Pizza Athletes of the Week.
Kirsten Baumgardt – Queens Hockey
Hometown – Innisfail
Kinesiology & Sport Studies (2nd year)
Defenceman Kirsten Baumgardt played a key role for the Hockey Queens in the opening two games of the Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference (ACAC) Women’s Hockey finals against the MacEwan University Griffins this past weekend.
The second-year defender worked hard and contributed at both ends of the ice as the Queens split the first two games in the best of five series.
This past Thursday, the Kinesiology & Sport Studies student scored a goal for the Queens in a close 2-1 loss in Edmonton.
While taking care of her defensive zone, the student-athlete from Innisfail contributed 1 assist and helped the RDC Queens shutout the Griffins 4-0 on home ice.
Scott Ferguson – Kings Hockey
Hometown – Sylvan Lake
Business Administration (2nd year)
Scott Ferguson was a force on the ice and helped the RDC Kings defeat the Concordia University Thunder in the ACAC Men’s Hockey quarter-finals this past weekend.
Friday, the second-year forward scored 2 goals and added 3 assists in a dominating 8-1 home victory.
Scott was named the player-of-the-game for RDC. In the Kings’ 4-3 road win on Saturday, the Business Administration student picked up another assist and remarkably recorded 6 points in two games.
Besides his contributions on the scoresheet, Scott worked hard all weekend.
The former forward with the Spruce Grove Saints was strong on the Kings’ special teams.
Scott had a goal and an assist on the power play, and was also an important part of the RDC penalty kill which was 100% efficient over both games.
