Regina's all-time leading women's basketball scorer Cymone Bouchard honoured

EDMONTON – Regina women's basketball's all-time leading scorer Cymone Bouchard has entered the Canada West Hall of Fame.

Bouchard's induction was announced Wednesday, as her outstanding five-year career in the Queen City was acknowledged.

Between 1999 and 2004, Bouchard tallied 1,439 points in 96 conference games and was part of two historic Regina teams.

In 2001 Bouchard and company claimed the lone CIS title in program history, while in her final season Bouchard led Regina to its first Canada West banner.

ABOUT THE CANADA WEST HALL OF FAME

For the last century, organized university sport has been a central part of the student experience at institutions across Western Canada. Beginning with the University of Manitoba capturing the first Western Canadian Intercollegiate Athletic Union (WCIAU) men's hockey banner in 1919-20, student-athletes have been competing to reach their full potential in sport and the classroom, while enriching campus life. 

To commemorate 100 years of university sport across Western Canada, the Canada West Hall of Fame was created in the spring of 2019, with the first induction class set to be unveiled throughout the 2019-20 season.
