Salient: An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 12, No. 3, April 6th, 1949.
For Tournament, the Basketball team is as follows:—
Forwards: Mary Cook, Susan Ferguson, Lance Colquohan, Margaret Loftus.
Centres: Audrey Cook, Kath Martin, Shirley Hicks, Rosemary Calendar, Pam Hildreth.
Defence: Alison Richardson, June Scott, Julie Hunt.
Mary Cook, the Club Captain, is a very reliable forward and plays well with Susan, who is an excellent fielder, even if her shooting does go from one extreme to the other. Lance will have a job to make her presence necessary to the other two who have played together so long. However, she has a lot to offer, and gained much experience from her rep. games last year.
The centre will be strong. Audrey ought to play well there this year. In the defence has given her a lot of speed. She has always been one of our strongest players. Shirley Hicks and Kath Martin play well together and we hope Kath will get a Blue this year—last year she played for NZU.
The defence will be sturdy, if not brilliant. It will be. [unclear: Julie's] first tournament, but this should not set her back at all. She is a natural athlete. Alison is a very experienced player. She received a College Blue last year and certainly deserved it. June is off her game this year -playing lousy basketball, but we hope she will settle down soon.
