Plaque Text

Considered the most successful early women's hockey team, the Preston Rivulettes had an almost unbelievable record of winning more than 95 percent of their games during the team's ten-year existence. Remarkably consistent, the Rivulettes skated away with most provincial, regional, and national championships between 1931 and 1940. Led by the dynamic Hilda Ranscombe, on right-wing, they attracted large, enthusiastic crowds for a fast-paced, exciting brand of amateur hockey. These Canadian hockey legends pushed the boundaries of women's sport, and continue to inspire and remind us of the proud history of women's ice hockey.
