Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 2, No. 13 July 5, 1939
There is one thing that is admirable in any sports team—the ability to be beaten and still come up smiling. It certainly cannot be said of our girls that they have been wanting in that respect.
It is indeed regrettable that they are playing in a grade obviously not in keeping with their experience, and they would do well to profit by the example of Canterbury College by building up their strength in the lower grades before competing with teams who have had years of practice, training, and team work behind them.
The Victoria girls, however, deserve the greatest praise, for they have all the essentials of team work and enthusiasm that, with a little help from the right quarters, would develop them into an efficient team. We cannot speak too highly of the way in which they have stood up to the most trying conditions, when outplayed in tactics and stick-work, but not in courage and tenacity by the strongest teams in Wellington.
Keep to it, girls!
