Berwick, Australia (September 2, 2001) - For New Zealand's Queen Margaret College Senior A Hockey Team having to play the final against Queen Margaret's, York on grass - and long grass at that - was most disconcerting. But they won 1 - 0.

The trip in August to Berwick, Melbourne, in Australia was an exciting and rewarding experience for 22 girls from Wellington and the four accompanying staff. The host college, St Margaret's School, Berwick, was celebrating its 75th Anniversary while Queen Margaret's from York was celebrating its 100th Anniversary. What wonderful reasons for staging a quadrangular tournament in Hockey and Netball.. St Margaret's from Christchurch, New Zealand completed the foursome.

Although Queen Margaret from Wellington won the Hockey final against Queen Margaret's, York and St Margaret's, Berwick won the Netball final against Queen Margaret, Wellington, the real winners of this international tournament were all the participants: competitors, staff and spectators.
