The first University of Regina Cougar Women’s Hockey Alumni meeting was April 21st, 2010. In attendance that day was Trina (Rissling) Hjelsing, Sara Hearn, Chelsa (Heywood) Budd and Kelsie Graham. They discussed how the alumni committee could support the current Cougars and began putting things in motion. Through many fundraising efforts, the alumni have been able to begin awarding a bursary in 2013. Our goals for the future with this award are to offer an award in the Fall semester and then another one in the Winter semester, increase the amount of the award and to look at further ways to assist the current Cougars experience at the University of Regina.

In February of 2013, we awarded Kendra Finch with the 1st University of Regina Cougar Women’s Hockey Alumni Award. The award in presented to an undergraduate or graduate student-athlete who is a member of the current Cougar Women’s Hockey team, in 4th or 5th year of CIS eligibility, in good academic standing and who are active in the community involvement or have made contributions to women’s or girls’ sports.
