A hockey player and volleyball player have been named this week’s RDC Athletics Boston Pizza Athletes of the Week.

RDC Athletics officials say Queen’s hockey player Sydnee Decorby had an excellent weekend on the ice, helping the 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 second year 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.

Meanwhile, King’s volleyball player Thomas Wass is described as having made a positive impact against the visiting Briercrest College Clippers over the weekend.

On Friday, the second-year Bachelor of Arts student 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, resulting in Kings Player of the Game honours.

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).

Wass had impressive statistics once again, accumulating 55 assists, 11 digs, four kills and one ace.

"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, in a press release. "Forty-two assists in three sets is quite a bit. He did a good job in terms of mixing things."
