The Spike or Victoria University College Review 1948

Women's Hockey Club

Women's Hockey Club

The 1947 season finished well, with Varsity holding positions about half-way up the grades in the Inter-Club Competitions in all sections except Senior B, who maintained their position in the top group of the grade.

The A team played some good inter-college games—they defeated Massey College at Palmerston in their annual match, and at Tournament (held last year at Wellington) finished second equal.

Plans are already afoot for the Massey visit early in July. This, and tournament, are the Senior A's main fixtures, but the Senior B's also have their annual match (we hope) with Canterbury. This year it is Victoria's turn to visit Christchurch.

King's Birthday saw two teams fielded in the seven-a-side. The second team did not leave its mark on the world of sport (thank you, Mr Ingram), but the seniors came second in their grade.

The Ralph trophy for the 1947 season was won by Pat Young, who gained representative honours in her first year of hockey. Congratulations, Pat.

Our congratulations also to Jean Melling and Quona Christie who took time off from hockey to get married.

This year the Club fielded four teams, but in 1949 the Club hopes to be able to field five. So if you are inspired by the noble game of hockey the Club will welcome you with open sticks.

Thanks are due to our coaches, Miss Charles, Pat Ralph and Mr Jacobson. They have been a great help during the year.
