The Bison women's basketball program continues to add to their incoming recruiting class with second year head coach Michele Hynes announcing the commitment of Addison Martin and Cara Neufeld.

Martin, a 5'9" forward, completed her high school career at Glenlawn Collegiate. The team captain averaged 23 points per game, 12 rebounds per game, 4 steals per game and 3 assists per game. She also played in the MHSAA Graduating All Star game.

Martin is "very excited to have the opportunity to play basketball with the University of Manitoba Bisons. I feel that my basketball and academic potential will be fully achieved during my time here and I will grow not only as a student athlete, but also as a person."

Neufeld completed her high school career at Linden Christian. The 6'0" forward, a co-captain, led her team to the AAA Provincial Championships and was selected as a tournament All-Star. She was also a part of the Manitoba Provincial team that won the 17U National Championship last summer.

Neufeld said, "I couldn't have gotten to where I am without the people in my life supporting me and the great coaches I've been able to work with. This is an amazing opportunity and I'm really looking forward to being a part of this team."

"We welcome Addison and Cara to our Bison family," Hynes said. "They have had outstanding high school careers along with their Provincial team experience. They bring a new excitement to the offensive end of the floor and athleticism that has them eager to become great defenders. We are getting excited to see Addison and Cara hit the floor next season with our returning players."
