Jean Prebble moved from outstanding athlete status at South Carleton High School to Carleton in 1957 where she played women’s basketball for three years (1957-1960). At that time, Carleton competed in the Senior City League of which they were champions in 1959. Jean led the league as top scorer and was elected the Most Valuable Player that same year. She captained the team in 1960 and earned university letters in 1959 and 1960. However, her involvement in athletics extended beyond varsity basketball. She served as a member of the Carleton Athletics Board for two years (1958/60) and participated in intramural sporting events. After graduation, she went on to teach and coach at the secondary level where her team won a senior girls basketball title and reached the finals on several other occasions. Jean has continued her involvement in sport and her commitment to fitness in her retirement.
