Those are good
How about the first Woman?

Tricia Wilson, Myself, Nanci Martin and Kathy Blandford started the Womans league back in 1985.
Tricia was a player, a ref, a league President, played for numerous MB Championship teams, and even coached tackle football. She was also a trainer for the 1983 Churchill Bulldogs Championship H.S. tackle squad.

To spur the league on her SWAT team, Coached by Chris Morrow- Litke gathered their friends and Ladies volleyball team to form one of the first teams. Lee-Anne McIver, little sister of then former MB Bison, and then Blue Bomber Doug McIvor was her brother.

Tricia went on to become the first woman touch football ref, as well.

She later joined the Wasps and went on to represent MB at the Nationals for many years. She was an outstanding receiver and DB.
