Tapawera Wins "Press" Shield

The domination of the shooting for the Weekly Press Shield by the Nelson College team ended last year when, after 13 successive wins, the shield passed out of the college into the hands of Tapawera District High School. This feat by the Tapawera team is remarkable in that the school's cadet unit, an A.T.C. one, numbers only 53 members. Tapawera topped New Zealand with an average of 95.3 points. Nelson College was second with 95.0 points, and Marlborough College third with 94.8 points. A tremendous achievement for the top of the island. The team above was, back row C. Carson, Ron Fenemor, E. Lukey, A. Overton, G. Chambers, L.Thorne. Front: S. Silcock, R. Wadsworth, K. Fenemor, Capt V. A. Elgar (coach), Ross Fenemor, P. Creep, C. Hewitt. The pic at left was taken during the shoot.
