As SOFTBALL is one of the comparatively 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- days in Westchester county. The Softball tournament this year marked the end of the career of one member of a great sister duo. Jane O'Hara. She and her sister, Millie, had competed against each other in every sport, and since this year furnished Jane's last chance to beat Millie. it seemed probable that the former Senior 2 team would cop the flag.

Schafbuch Even though VOLLEYBALL was the one sport that every girl can play in class, a surpris- ingly large number also turned out for the intra- mural games. Through the years there have been teams that have played other schools, but the present-day teams play only an interclass tourna- ment, and sometimes participate in the West- chester Girls' Athletic Association Playdays among the Big Six Teams-Yonkers, White Plains, New Rochelle, Mamaroneck, Portchester, and Davis. This year was Vol1eyball's best year in terms of turnout, and, of the six teams formed, Mildred Oil-1ara's Junior 2's came out victorious ROW 1: A. Katzenstein, L. Coldfine, L. Lubart, H. Schecter, D. Soccig ROW 2: J. Stone, B. Fee, A. Fried- man, J. Feld, Miss Taylor 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 played a full schedule including many of the top teams in Westchester County, but after 1935 they had to be content with playing a tournament each year among themselves, and perhaps one or two outside teams.

Jane had to be content with second place, finishing with four Wins and one loss. This definitely was not the Sophs' season, for the Senior 1 team, led by Irene Marcus, with a three and two record, ended in third place. W.,4..f by vanquishing the other five teams. Since Millie had a habit of winning, she won in this as well as in all other girls sports. Her teammates who gave her good support were Edwina Curtis, Judy Farago, Willie May Gayles, Lynn Goldfine, Carolyn Jacoby, Martha Roebelen, Gloria Schaf- buch, and Nancy Wostroff. Although the Junior 2's Won, they were given a rough time by the Junior 1's, under the leadership of Olga Minklei, and Senior 2's, cap- tained by Carol Emes, who placed 2nd and 3rd, respectively. These tournament results indicate strong Senior competition next year. ir if , .inlaid Last spring's tournament, managed by Nancy Wosstroff, was Won by Judy Stone, with Harriet Schecter taking runner-up position. ln the one inter-school match with Boose- velt, Davis succumbed 2-1, Barbara Fee being the only Davis Winner.
