Cst. Sandra Noble joined the Sylvan Lake RCMP detachment July 14 and brings almost 10 years’ experience.

Previous postings have been at Hanley and La Loche, Saskatchewan and Cold Lake Alberta.

“I love it,” she said after her first shifts in Sylvan Lake. “The people are really nice.” She’s happy to be living in Sylvan Lake.

After many years as a travel agent in British Columbia, the Hillmond, Saskatchewan native decided to pursue a career in policing, something she’d always wanted to do.

An avid softball player, Noble was inducted into the Alberta Softball Hall of Fame in 2010 along with teammates from the Lloydminster Midget Girls Blues team of 1985-86. “It was quite an honour,” she said.

The team captured the 1985 Canadian Midget Girls Softball title with a 12 inning, 7-5 win over British Columbia in the deciding game of the A-B final. The Blues won their second consecutive Canadian Midget Girls Fast Pitch Championship in seven consecutive games outscoring their opponents 41-9 with clutch hitting, sparking defensive play and fierce pitching, states the Softball Alberta website.

But Noble said her “passion is volleyball”. She participated in the World Masters Games in Australia in 2009 and was supposed to compete in Italy this year. “It didn’t work out.” The next World Masters Games is in New Zealand in four years’ time and she plans to be there.

Besides sports, her love is dogs. She has a chocolate lab which is her joy.
