Salient: Victoria University Students' Paper. Vol. 25. No. 11. 1962
This year's Vie, Team, which will represent us at the N.Z.U. champs at Coronet Peak, does not look to be particularly strong, although Tom Huppert and Kirsty McCallum should both do well. Tom is N.Z.U. champion and a leading N.Z. skier and should be An obvious choice for the N.Z.U which will meet the touring Australian Universities team at the conclusion of the Tourney, Kirsty Is an ex-Otago rep. and she also should be a member of N.Z.U. team.
Unfortunately neither Vic, nor Auckland could manage to assemble a complete women's team so they have combined to form a North Island team. Kristy is the only Vic. member in this team.
The rest of the men's team is composed of skiers who have had a year or two of skiing but have not competed at a Tournament before. Their inexperience is likely to be too great a hurdle for them to overcome. Nevertheless we wish them all the best end hope that the experience they gain here may see Vic. to the fore again in the future.
The team is: T. Huppert (captain). R. McLeod, M. Zander, G. Barsted, and Kirsty McCallum.
