Salient: Victoria University Students' Paper. Vol. 28, No. 11. 1965.
Old sports hands at Victoria were loud in their praises of the Victoria teams. One commented that never before in his memory had so many Vic students put so much effort into Winter Tournament. Organisers as well as participants put in a tremendous amount of work this year.
Some local teams turned out as dark horses, improving greatly on their 1964 performances. Such a; team was the women's hockey team.
Last year, commenting on the team's performance. Salient had this to say: "There is nothing much one can say about the performance of the women's hockey team, except to express the wish that, if a team is sent next year, they compete as an independent side and keep the good name of Victoria untouched."
This year the team rose mightily to the occasion and come equal second with Auckland.
So that is how the tournament looked—a good all round effort and a highly successful competition, especially from the local point of view.
