Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 2, No. 14. July 12, 1939
We must congratulate the Senior Basketball side on its surprise victory in The King's Birthday tournament, for after indifferent form in the earlier part of the year, our girls certainly excelled themselves. Playing International rules, they suffered only one defeat in the five rounds, thus gaining eight points, the next team being W.E.O.G. with seven points. With Kia Ora level at the fourth round, everything depended on its game with Training College, and the latter are to be congratulated on their victory over a team which is as yet undefeated in ordinary club matches.
The Senior A match against W.E.O.G. on Saturday was a disappointment. Varsity were down 7-8 at half-time, and with field advantages in the next spell had hopes of holding their own. Yet there was a sudden weakening in the forward first and a very commendable domination of the game by the opposing team, the final score being 10-19.
The third team also suffered a defeat. This seems to be a habit; but they are enjoying their games, and their spirit is to be commended.
