WINNIPEG — The University of Manitoba Bison women’s volleyball team is looking ahead, introducing its 2019-20 recruitment class on Thursday.

Fresh off a bronze medal win for Team Finland at the 2018 Winter Olympic Games in PyeongChang, the University of Manitoba hockey forward returned to her local rink and helped propel the team to a national championship win.
WINNIPEG — It’s never happened before, but on Sunday, the Manitoba Bisons slid into the history books. The women’s hockey team hoisted a national championship trophy for the first time in the program’s 21-year history.
Twenty-four hours later, the feeling is still sinking in.
WINNIPEG – The No. 1 University of Manitoba Bisons were crowned the champions of Canada West for the third time in the history of the program after a 5-2 win over the No. 8 University of Saskatchewan Huskies in game two of the Canada West Finals of women’s hockey on Saturday night in front of a nearly sold-out crowd of 860 at Wayne Fleming Arena in Winnipeg.
“To do it at home finally is so special for this group. It’s been a long time since we have had one, and all the hard work for the last 4 or 5 years for this group paid off,” said Bisons Head Coach and Canada West Coach of the year Jon Rempel after the win.
