Judith Davenport—first year player and exceedingly promising, who has made the grade for Wellington Junior Reps. this year. A high scorer both at practice and in club games.

Betty Beaseley—has been playing more or less seriously since 1947 but this is her first year for V.U.C As yet an unknown quantity liable to get Squashed among the giants.

Judy Allen—third year in the Club and third tournament Captain of the B team this year.


Judith Kitsby—an old tournament personality this is her third. Tournament playing in the Wellington Senior B reps. this year has much improved her play Judy is guarding well and can even out a dash if she concentrates

June Lee—iS playing in Tournament team for the second time but is now back among the guards. She plays exceedingly well on occasions.

Hazel Blick—first year in the V.U.C. Club, having transferred from C.U.C. Played in N.Z.U team 1951. 1952. 1953 and last year captained both Canterbury Senior B reps. and the South Island B reps This year Hazel is captaining the V.U.C. team and playing in the Wellington Senior B reps However, she is seldom on the court.

Anno Couling—another first year player who is well known in outdoor basketball circles. She is improving rapidly but needs more practice and less smoking on the court.

Margaret Hunt—has bean playing for the club three years and this is her second Tournament. An active and versatile player whose motto is "Better Late than Never."

As a team we are playing better basketball than in previous years mainly because we are up to Senior B grade this season and getting more experience against better teams. Our combination and guarding particularly have improved and although we have no expectations of winning the S. G. Holland Shield we are always ready for a good fight and not likely to let the V.U.C. record down.
