Lisa Wong, Guard
Lisa was a defensive specialist with the Lady Bruins, as a transfer from the disc sport of Ultimate. Her tenacity on and off the court was the same on the grass field where she was a member of the Canadian Junior National Ultimate program who came 2nd in at the World Championships in Germany.

Amber Hall, Forward
Amber led the Lady Bruins to three straight appearances at the AA Provincials from 1993 to 1995.

She was the assistant coach of Central Washington University and now resides in Texas.
Corianne (Nielsen) Lange, Guard
Cori was the most competitive of all the famous Nielsen clan. Known for her three point threat and thieving prowlness, Cori was an outstanding member of the 1993-1995 Senior girls squad that advanced to the provincial tournament, finishing 9th, 3rd and 4th respectively. Cori's passion for the game is still evident as she continues to score in double digits each night in the Strathcona Women's Basketball League. Currently, she is an elementary teacher at Cook. Married to another teacher, Cori and Bruno are the parents of 3 very gorgeous and cute kids!
