Dally completed her five-year CIS career by being named the player of the year in women’s basketball in the Canada West Universities Athletic Association after leading the Huskies in scoring by average 17.2 points per game, along with 4.8 rebounds and 2.5 assists per contest. The six-foot guard was also named a first-team CIS all-Canadian and the Huskies female athlete of the year.
