Former Bisons coach, athletic director Dufresne honoured

Former University of Manitoba Bisons women’s basketball coach Coleen Dufresne was honoured Thursday as the latest inductee into the Canada West conference Hall of Fame.

Dufresne served as Bisons head coach from 1984 to 2001, guiding her teams to national titles in 1988, 1996 and 1997.

A star basketball player prior to her coaching career and a 1976 Olympian for Canada, Dufresne became the school’s athletic director in 2001 and served for 15 years in the post. She also served as Canada West president from 2005-07, and in 2005 became just the second Canadian elected to the Fédération Internationale du Sport Universitaire executive committee.
