Outstanding performances on the court and on the ice have led to Boston Pizza Athletes of the Week honours for a Queens hockey player and Kings volleyball player.

Goaltender Karlee Fetch was nearly unbeatable this past weekend against the defending Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference (ACAC) Women’s Hockey Champions, the MacEwan University Griffins.

The fourth-year student came on in relief about half-way through Friday’s contest, turning aside all 15 shots she faced.

Then on Saturday in Edmonton, the Open Studies student put on a goaltending clinic, stopping 43 out of 44 shots (0.977), helping the RDC Queens pick up an important 2-1 road win and earning the Queens Player-of-the-Game.

Over both games, the netminder from Prince Albert made 58 saves out of 59 shots (0.983). 


This past weekend, Regan Fathers had another all-star performance for the Kings Volleyball team (18-6), helping them down the previously undefeated Lethbridge College Kodiaks (20-2) in both road matches.

His weekend statistics were unparalleled in the ACAC. In Friday’s five set victory (23-25, 25-18, 25-22, 23-25 and 15-9), the six-foot-six outside hitter was a dominant force, totaling 29 kills, 15 digs, two blocks, one assist and one ace while hitting for 44.7 per cent efficiency.

For his outstanding effort, the Australian earned the Kings Player-of-the-Game award.

Then in Saturday’s victory (25-23, 22-25, 26-24 and 34-32), the fifth year student stacked up 37 kills, 18 digs, one block, one ace and hit for 47.4 per cent efficiency.

Fathers finished the weekend with 66 kills, 33 digs, three blocks, two aces and one assist, helping lead the Kings to an 8-2 record in their past ten matches. 

In only 21 matches, the Kinesiology General student leads the league with 435 total kills and 5.37 kills per set.
