Red Deer, AB – Catherine Longchamps, of the Red Deer College Queens, was announced as the recipient of two Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference (ACAC) Women's Hockey awards on Friday, March 8.

Longchamps was recognized as a Top Scholastic Achiever and ACAC Women's Hockey Second All-Conference team selection. The second-year defender not only balanced the demands of academics and commitments as a talented student-athlete, but she excelled. She obtained a 3.85 GPA in the Bachelor of Education Secondary program at Red Deer College.

Longchamps helped lead the Queens (10-9-5-0) to third place in the league and contributed nine points in 24 regular season games while taking care of her own zone. One of her points was a game-winning-goal. The five-foot-nine defender, from Deux-Montagnes, Quebec, had a leadership role on the team as an alternate captain.

Longchamps played a key role in helping RDC push MacEwan University, the two-time defending ACAC Champions, to the limit in the best of three semi-final.

Longchamps and the other All-Conference selections will be celebrated prior to game three of the ACAC Women's Hockey final on Thursday, March 14 at NAIT Arena. The NAIT Ooks and MacEwan University Griffins are competing for gold.
