The Huskiettes won four on the floor, defeating the University of Alberta and the University of British Columbia in Edmonton to take the Cecil Race Trophy as Western intercollegiate champions, winning the Gardiner Trophy as Saskatoon city league champions and adding the provincial junior and senior women's titles. Exams prevented the team from attending the Western Canadian championship.
