Athlete (1986)

Track and Field

Maureen has represented Saskatoon, Saskatchewan and Canada in track and field as an athlete, coach and administrator. During her career, she held many Saskatchewan high school and open records in the 50, 60, 75, and 100-yard sprints. She was also the holder of the Canadian Juvenile long-jump record. Her strong showing in these events helped Maureen to make the Canadian team that went to Melbourne, Australia for the 1956 Olympics. She competed in the 100 and 200 metre sprints and the 4 x 100 metre relay team.

While competing in the 4 x 100 relay in the 1958 Commonwealth Games and the 1959 Pan-American Games, she helped Canada win two bronze medals. When her racing days were over, Maureen turned to coaching and officiating. She became an internationally ranked official and served as a director of the Saskatoon Track and Field club, and executive member of the Amateur Athletic Association of Canada, and was a founding member of Sask Sport.

She was inducted into the Saskatchewan Sports Hall of Fame in 1977.
