Salient. The Newspaper of Victoria University College. Vol. 19, No. 5. May 5, 1955



The performance of P. Joyce in winning both the one mile and the three mile events, and creating a new record in the latter was creditable: his wins were convincing and well-merited. The performance of Shirley Thompson in winning the 80 metres hurdle also is to be commended. Following are the breakdown of events in which VUC gained places:—
  • Women's 75yds: E. Crisp 3rd.
  • Women's 200yds: E. Crisp 2nd.
  • Women's Discus: P. Barraclough 2nd; J. Young 3rd.
  • 4 x 110yds Belay: Victoria 2nd.
  • Invitation Shot-putt: P. Barraclough (V) 2nd.
  • 1 mile: P. Joyce 1st (Time 4 22.8).
  • 3 Miles: P. Joyce 1st; O. Stevens 2nd (Time 14 49.2).
  • 4 x 440yds Relay: Victoria 3rd.
  • 1 Mile Walk: I. Lyon 2nd.

Final points in the Men's Athletics were: Otago 81; Auckland 54; Canteerbury 28; Victoria 17.

In the Women's Athletics: Otago 40½; Auckland 22ft; Victoria 16; Canterbury 0.

Thus Victoria came last equal with CUC in the Athletics, both with 3 points in Tournament shield for Athletics.
