The Spike: or, Victoria College Review, June 1910
Ninth Inter-University College Tournament. — Held At Christchurch Easter, 1910
Ninth Inter-University College Tournament.
Held At Christchurch Easter, 1910.
For the third time we have visited Christchurch and experienced the kindness and hospitality of our friends there. We went forth, like our foes, to fight and to conquer. We fought a good fight, but we did not conquer. The Tournament of 1910 leaves us, as we were once wont to be, without a championship. The following synopsis shows graphically our record:—
1902—1904 — No championship.
1905 — Tennis
1906 — Debating and Tennis.
1907 — Debating and Tennis.
1908 — Debating and Athletics.
1909 — Debating.
1910 — No championship.
We have been beaten squarely, and we congratulate our victors. They won because they deserved to do so; but see to it, O ye men of Victoria College, that ye refurbish your armour and sharpen your swords against the coming day of battle.
