Basketball and Boxing

Basketball and Boxing.

Our Basketball girls modestly tell us that the V.U.C. supporters won the shield—but that is entirely erroneous. They merely did their part and they enjoyed doing it for, if ever a team was worth losing a voice about, that team was the V.U.C. B.B. team. When victory was snatched from Auckland by Janet 's last minute goal it was the signal for a wild dance of triumph up and down the courts, but the greatest moment all came at the end of the final game when every Wikitorian joined in a shouting ring encircling our nine heroines and giving them the cheers they deserved.

At the Boxing V.U.C. were again to the fore and a spontaneous burst of applause broke out at the conclusion of our first haka. Our men had the good sense to refrain from demonstrating during a bout (boxing, not drinking).

Yes—the rowing, the basketball, and the boxing were our big occasions, and to have out-haka'd the home college is a feat that even veterans of tournament cannot remember.
