newer sports at Davis, the girls have not had a
chalice for real inter-school competition since
girls' track was discontinued in 1932. But Davis
ball clubs went to bat as late as 1947 against
several outside teams, including Rye, Edison,
and Roosevelt. and sent teams to different play-

In the past, Davis had a successful history
in the field of GIRLS' TENNIS, for Miss Taylor
has been coaching winning tennis teams since
1927. Once upon a time the racquet-wielders

had a habit of winning, she won in this as well
as in all other girls sports. Her teammates who
