Brenda Hansen led the conference in scoring three times in basketball, making the all-conference team each year. As of her induction, she still held the Bearcats basketball record for highest scoring average in a single season (15.3 ppg 1979-1980). Willamette was 46-20 in the three years she played basketball, leading the Bearcats to conference titles in '79 and '80. Hansen was also a four-year starter in volleyball and twice was an all conference selection. She was the most valuable player on the 1979 volleyball team that finished 31-9 and won the school's first conference championship in the sport. That team advanced to regionals and placed third.
