Red Deer, AB - Talented student-athletes from across the Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference (ACAC) hit the ice at the Pidherney Curling Centre on Friday, and there were many strong performances to kick off the Fall Regional. The RDC Kings, Queens and mixed team picked up victories on the opening day. 

At 5:30 p.m., the Kings soundly defeated the MacEwan University Griffins 14-2 and then dropped a 7-3 decision to the division leading NAIT Ooks at 8:00 p.m.

Not much separated the women's teams on day one. After falling to NAIT 7-1, the Red Deer College Queens rebounded handsomely with a 9-5 victory over the MacEwan University Griffins. 

The RDC Mixed Curling team had a great start, downing the NAIT Ooks 8-2 at 8:00 p.m.
