SMAD. An Organ of Student Opinion. 1936. Volume 7. Number 9.



The Varsity Senior A team has as good material this year as it has ever had. Yet the whole team plays a poor game as a team. There is a palpable lack of co-operation. The girls do not know each other's play. With solid and regular practice this year's team could carry off the Wellington championship. True, they would have to beat Wellington East with their unassailable defence and their sure goalies, and too, Kia Ora A, with their swift centres and bright passing throughout.

But Varsity has the stuff. Every girl in the A team is a first-class player, and it can also be said that there is not one who, in favourable circumstances, might not rank as a Wellington rep.

But no one can do much in a team which does not practise regularly. The season is yet young and we can hope for great things from Varsity A if they will buck up and attend practices, and if those practices could be held in a well-lighted and full-sized gym.

Some Notes on Players:—

Stella Phillips.—This year's captain is a good and reliable player. We still like you in defence best, Stella-memories of your sticking propensities and also good interceptions. However, if you intend to remain in goial, get free from that partner.

Janet Grainger.—Tophole. But brighten up that shooting, Janet, and you'll be a second Mary Line. Field work brilliant.

Marjorie Gibbons.—Our best goalshooter this season; but you must get in front of that partner and make for the wide open spaces.

Nora McLaren.—A stalwart player and a steady passer. But don't overdo the defending and get pulled up for infringements, Nora.

Dorothy Grainger.—A pretty player who would do well to cut out her moments of lackdaisy. Stick to those brilliant mements.

Margaret Pilcher.—Good, because she uses her head, But the rest of the team don't know you, Miss Pilcher.

Marion Bell.—A brilliant interceptor and defender. But you get your tail down too easily, Marion. Beware of fumbling.

Erice Overton.—A prospective Wellington rep. A fighter and a brilliant defence. (And a practiser!). Keep it up.

Sylvia Hefford.—The only fresher to make the team. Congrats! Stick to that goalie parner.

Sheila Fraser.—A good player, but must get more active and less self-conscious of her play. And don't fumble. Your brain is a good player.

All the goals must practise their shooting.

We've got our money on the V.U.C. Senior A. They defeated Kia Ora B very convincingly on Saturday by 13 goals to 8.
