Women's Basketball

This year the club has felt the loss of some of their most experienced players and is building up a new team which may not reach its peak by Tournament. But will benefit greatly from the experience.

Those who are new to Tournament are G. Hemery, T. Feast, M. Cameron, and B. Kerr. Gillian Hemery has not been available for club play for the last part of the season because of an injured ankle, but she is a second year player who has improved this year as a guard. Thelma Feast is a first year player who has played in Masterton. She is beginning to work in well with the rest of the team in the forward court. Marion Cameron and Bridget Kerr are two players recruited from outdoor basketball and should make good indoor players.

The experienced players are Ina Bowman. A.U.C. Blue. 1955. V.U.C. Blue. 1956, Wellington representative squad, 1956-57. N.Z.U. team 1954-55-56; Judy Davenport (captain), V.U.C. Blue. 1956, Wellington rep. squad, 1956-57, N.Z.U. team. 1955-56; Elizabeth Chrisp. a second year Tournament representative who has made the Wellington rep. squad this season and Penelope Riske, a third year representative who is our only guard with experience.

The side may not carry off the S. G. Holland Shield this year, but is looking forward to Tournament in Auckland this year.
