Salient. The Newspaper of Victoria University College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 19, No. 3. March 24, 1955



The AGM of the Hockey Club was attended by 16 people out of the 35 who had written their names on the notice-board as prepared to play the sport in the coming season. Even allowing for the usual apathy of students for annual meetings, this figure was not very encouraging for the club which last year had fairly reasonable success.

Last season the club fielded five teams, and their places in their grades, with the number of teams playing in parentheses, were as follows:—
  • Senior Championship—3rd (6).
  • Senior Macalister—1st (6).
  • Reserve—3rd (6).
  • 2nd. 1st. div—4th (6).
  • 2nd. 2nd. div—6th (8).
  • 3rd, 2nd. dlv—2nd. (6).

The highlight of the year's activity was, of course. Tournament—with an added interest in the visit of the Australian University team—and VUC put up an extremely good performance to win the Tournament Hockey Shield.

  • Club Captain: B. Bornholdt.
  • Secretary: M. Humphries.
  • Treasurer: G. Revell.
  • Executive: Messrs. Calkin. Comp-ton, De Cleene.
