The Spike or Victoria University College Review 1934

Basketball Club

Basketball Club

This year the Basketball Club has increased its membership and we were able to enter three teams in the Association championships, Senior A, Senior B. and fifth grade. The A team has done well despite the loss of their strongest player, Mary Line. We welcomed Janet Grainger, an excellent all-round player. Despite the good coaching and helpful criticisms of Miss Edna Bell, to whom we are very grateful, neither the B nor the 5th team have played particularly well in their matches.

At Tournament, although our team played well, we were unable to retain the shield, and we congratulate A.U.C. on their victory. Our one N.Z. Blue was Mary Mules and we regret she will be unable to play for us next year.

Our former club captain, Mary Line, is now married and living in England. We miss her very much but wish her the greatest happiness in her new life.

We are proud to report that we have four repre-sentative players, two from each of the Senior teams. Clare Turner (forward) and Janet Grainger (forward) were the A representatives, and the Wellington team was successful in the recent Dominion Tournament at Dunedin. Our Senior B representatives, whose team was also successful in its match, were Joy Chappell (forward) and Jean Roberts (centre).
