Swimming Club

The swimming season which has just closed has shown definitely that University [unclear: swimming] in Wellington is on the up grade and it is certain that had a University tournament been possible Victoria would have made a finer showing than it has done for a number of years.

Among the club's foremost swimmers was John Shanahan who, in the Wellington 100 yards breast-stroke championship was only beaten by a touch by the New Zealand champion, Dyson. Margaret White was another club swimmer whose performances were outstanding while Marion Mar-wick shows great possibilities.

The club's polo team had the distinction of being the only team in the "B" grade to defeat the championship winners and had the team not been weakened during the holidays it would have finished very high in the championship.

It is hoped when the new season commences in the Third team members of the College will support the club and ensure that the club's strong position will be maintained.
