SUMMARY OF BOYS' SPORTS lT is quiTe apparenT ThaT Davis Tinished The year wiTh no beTTer Than an average record. This is Truly unTorTunaTe since almosT every Team This year seemed blessed wiTh Tine maTerial, and in every case The hopes OT seeing a coveTed W. l. A. A. championship adorn The l-lillTop ran high. lT seems ThaT The TaTes willed oTherwise, Tor a series OT iniuries and unexplained leT-downs on The parT oT key men ruined The chances OT every Team. The Team ThaT had The besT record Tor The year, considering iTs experience, was cross-counTry, which losT only one meeT during The enTire year. UnTorTunaTely, ThaT one was The all-imporTanT' W. l. A. A. Championship lvleeT. lTs loss s+iIl remains a mysTeryg Tor cerTain runners who, in previous meeTs had Tinished Tar up in TronT, ran poorly and were never conTenders. CapTain Fairservice, however, ran a beauTiTul race To Tinish in second place. FooTball also made iTs appearance aT This Time, and again Maroon hopes ran high Tor an undeTeaTed eleven. For a Time iT seemed as iT This dream mighT come True when Al l:iTzsimmons broke OTT his own leTT Tackle and, behind excellenT blocking, dashed sevenTy yards Tor The Touchdown ThaT beaT a rugged PorT ChesTer Team. This was The high waTer- mark oT The season: Tor a week laTer, a powerTul WhiTe Plains Tiger clawed iTs way To a 26-O win dashing Davis' hopes. The season closed soon aTTer, when New Rochelle was held To a scoreless Tie on a Tield so weT and muddy, ThaT accuraTe TooTball was impos- sible. As soon as The gridiron warriors had washed away The mud, mosT oT Them reporTed for baskerball which now shared The Davis spoTlighT, along wiTh swimming and Tencing. lT was hoped ThaT The Team would be in The counTy spoTlighT as well, buT again dreams did noT maTerialize. The Team gave promise oT being an excepTional group, buT did noT line up To expecTaTions. ln some games, They could have whipped any Team in The counTy buT unTorTunaTely, These were Tew and Tar beTween. Davis Tinished TourTh in counTy sTand- ing, and reTained The myThical ciTy championship by beaTing Edison. The swimming Team Tared much beTTer. The boys goT OTT To a slow sTarT by drop- ping The TirsT Two meeTs, buT gradually Torged ahead, and in The counTy meeT, They were beaTen only by a super-powerTul New Rochelle squad. l-lowever, The crack l6O- yard relay Team swam over The besT our rivals could musTer To win iTs evenT Tor The CoTTinmen. AlmosT The enTire Tencing Team graduaTed "en masse" lasT June, so ThaT The squad was required To sTarT Trom scraTch wiTh inexperienced men. l-lowever, veTeran CapTain D'Angio's sword-play, in losing To only one opponenT, marked him as one oT The TinesT Tencers in The counTy. Our gym Team had a very successTul year in which The muscle-men gave many exhibiTions beTore clubs and schools in The counTy. This is TasT becoming one oT The mosT popular Teams in The school. For The spring season, hopes were again high. The baseball and Tennis Teams had many seasoned veTerans reTurning, and played in True Davis sTyle. GolT and Track, also on The spring schedule, worked hard To Triumph over Their opponenTs. So Davis sporTsmen look To The TuTure, noT aT all ashamed OT Their record and iusTly proud OT Their spiriT and conducT on The Tield. 9lO8o
