The Spike or Victoria University College Review June 1917
During the early part of the term the officers of the Club set themselves to organize a sports meeting and happily they were successful in obtaining sufficient entries. Arrangements were made to suspend lectures on 4th April from five to six, so that a large number of students and even one or two professors were on the park when the first race was started. The programme was not long nor the fields very large, but we think that the spectators were treated to three very interesting and well-contested races.
The results were as follows:—
1st Heat—(1) G. Lusk, (2) A. J. MacLennan. 2nd Heat—(1) N. Barker, (2) H. C. Jenkins. Final—(1) G. Lusk, (2) Barker and MacLennan.
(1) C. Jackson, (2) G. Aitken, (3) A. J. MacLennan.
(1) L. K. Wilson, (2) L. J. Edmondson, (3) Bourke.
The times for the various events are now lost, but we believes that they were very creditable, especially when the small facilities for training are taken into consideration.
We may well be pleased that the Athletic Club exists once more in fact as well as in name. That it is so, is due entirely to the energy of the officers of the Club, to whom all credit is due for organizing a successful gathering under such adverse conditions.
