The Spike or Victoria College Review, June 1903


page 13


On Easter Monday the Athletic Meeting was held and it was an unqualified success. The Domain was in good condition, and the performances were of no mean order. W. H. Moyes, of Canterbury College, ran the 440 yards Flat in 51 2 2/5 seconds, thus establishing a record. R. Hay, of Auckland, equalled the standard in the 100 yards, while A. S. Henderson lowered the standard for the 440 yards Hurdles by covering the distance in 62 2/5 seconds. In the latter race O'Kane, the New Zealand champion, who was running close up, second, fell at the last hurdle, and Henderson won easily. P. H. Buck of Otago. won a gold medal in the Long Jump, with the fine leap of 20 feet 11 inches. J. Davie of the same college, won the Half and the Mile in fine style—running with excellent judgment. Apart from the 440 yards Hurdles, Victoria College did not meet with conspicuous success, though her representatives "also started" in all events. They ran throughout with plenty of pluck, but were outclassed—they were beaten, but not disgraced.
