Swimmers Sanguine

Swimmers Sanguine

Our team for this year is as good as usual, but with the National champions and otherwise exceptional swimmers likely to be representing the other Colleges, our hopes are no higher than usual. Victoria swimmers are, however, to be congratulated on their hardiness. Wellington is the only centre without tepid baths.

The team is as follows:—Jan Caselberg, 100 back-stroke, 100 free-style; Pat Cummins, 50, 100 free-style, relay; Catherine Eichelbaum, 100 breast-stroke; Marget McKenzie, 100 back-stroke, 50 free-style and relay; Pat Young, dive; J. Bennett, 440 free-style; D. Kerr, 220 free-style, 100 back-stroke; B. Knowles, 220, 100 breast-stroke; R. Shannon, dive; N. Turnbull, 100, 220 free-style, relay; D. West, 100 free-style, 100 back-stroke, relay.

Probably our best chance of a win lies in Pat Cummins, who carried off the 50 yds. free-style last year. It is hard to see Cath. Eichelbaum coming lower than second in the 100 yds. breast-stroke. There is room for optimism in the dive because, no standard having yet been set, there are no grounds for pessimism.

Victoria swimmers can be expected to do as well as their forebears at Easter, and to have just as good a time.
