Basketballers Feel Proud Now

Basketballers Feel Proud Now

We are proud to announce an even greater honour for the Club than the rep. names given in the last issue of "Salient." Julie Dean selected for the Senior rep beam has now gained a place in the Wellington Senior A Tournament Team to play at Nelson. (Almost unheard of in VUC Basketball circles.)

The games of the past two weeks have been very gratifying. On July 12 the Senior B team, playing one short, defeated Taxis, 17-6. One the same day the Intermediate defeated Y.W.C.A. by 31-5. The following Saturday the Senior B played the top team in their grade and were defeated 17-16, a most annoying and yet gratifying score. The Intermediate again put up the remarkable score of 21-6 against Training College. Unfortunately the Junior team, in spite or sterling efforts in team play, have continued to lose because the club is very short of sufficient good goalies.

There is a rumour abroad, however, that attendance at club practice has fallen considerably! Try to be there girls, in all fairness to Mr. Budden, and keep the club going to the end of the season.
