The Spike: or, Victoria University College Review October, 1920

Women's Hockey Club

Women's Hockey Club

Our club this year has greatly decreased in numbers owing to the formation of a separate Training College club, but, although only fourteen in number, all members are keen players and have willingly given up their Saturday afternoons in the interests of the Club.

Karori is the centre of our sport, and almost every Saturday afternoon we have had a full team to represent us on the field—a severe test of the keenness of members.

We played one match this year at Hutt Park, and this created an amusing variation from Karori, but we should not have expected Karori conditions everywhere, and we have at least learned the lesson that it does not pay to wait for a 'bus which does not run.

The team has played some very good games this season, and managed to secure the Runners-Up Cup, being beaten for the Championship only by page 66 Ramblers A, who, for several years now have held the honour of being the best ladies' team in the field.

Three of our members, Misses Myers, Riekard, and Lithgow were asked to represent Wellington at the tournament held this year at Gisborne, but the last two only were able to go, and we can safely say they played for Wellington as they have always played for Victoria College.

At the end of the second term we held a small but very successful flower sale, to help to raise the £100 which was required to send the team to Gisborne.

We hope that the Club next year will be much bigger, and we should like to see V.C. defeating Ramblers and holding the Championship shield.

Our heartiest thanks are due to all those from whom we received such generous donations.
