Cec's U-Drive won the 1949 Canadian Senior "A" women's basketball championship. They were truly products of the Victoria minor basketball system with Flo and Marion Kennedy, Mary Peden, Rita Kaltenback, Marg LeLacheur and Kay Trevelyan having coming up through the system. In 1945-46, their first year in the Senior " A" ranks, they went undefeated until the B.C. finals. Evelyn Stoltz of Duncan was added to the team the following season but again, the Victoria girls went to the B.C. final only to be denied. But in 1948-49, after securing sponsorship from Cec's, the talented team finally put it all together to go all the way to being the best in the country. After winning the B.C. crown and then dispatching the Edmonton Mortons in the Western Canada final, the girls from Cec's were ready to host the defending champion Toronto Montgomery Maids in the Canadian final. This fine group of seven players coached by Hank Rowe culminated their dream march to the top with a 3-0 series sweep and the Canadian championship.
