The Alberta Sport Development Centre – Central (ASDC-C) is pleased to announce that the ASDC-Central Athlete of the Month for October 2019 is Colby Nemeth.  Colby Nemeth is a 17 year old Red Deer, AB resident, Grade 12 student at Lindsay Thurber High School (LTCHS) and a competitive volleyball athlete.

Colby was a member of the 2018 LTCHS Senior Boys Volleyball Team that finished 8th in the 2018 ASAA 4A Provincial Championships, and the Raiders are currently ranked #2 in ASAA 4A Boys Volleyball in 2019.  This season, Colby captured an All-Star Award at U of Alberta Bears High School Invitational, and MVP honors at Harry Ainlay’s TVT Volleyball Tournament in Edmonton.  The Raiders are looking forward to securing a spot in this year’s ASAA 4A Provincial Championships at Jasper Place High School in Edmonton, the week of November 21 – 23, 2019. 

This past summer Colby was a member of both the Volleyball Alberta 17U Provincial Team for both indoor and beach volleyball.  With Team Alberta’s indoor team, Colby and his teammates travelled to Korea to compete in early July and returned to compete at the Canada Cup Championships in Halifax, NS where the team captured the Bronze Medal.  Colby quickly converted to the beach after indoor season and went to Swift Current, SK where he and his partner took home the Bronze Medal in Beach Volleyball at the 2019 Western Canada Summer Games.

Colby will play with the Central Alberta Kings Volleyball Club’s 18U team in the coming 2020 season and is hoping to receive a an invitation to try-out for Canada’s Junior National Volleyball team and play with the team in the summer of 2020, or continue to pursue a Volleyball Canada Championship in Beach Volleyball with Team Alberta.

Colby has his eyes set on playing volleyball at a post-secondary level and eventually at the national team level in indoor or beach volleyball. With Colby’s strong work ethic, his undeniable athletic abilities and his training experiences with ASDC-Central, he will surely continue to grow, develop and succeed in his volleyball career! 

ASDC-Central thanks Tom Bast Sports for celebrating the ASDC-Central Athlete of the Month recipients by the provision of commemorative apparel for each recipient.
