First Row: Tommy Hill, lay Witbeck, Tom Burditt. Second Row: Ioe Humphrey, Iarnes Atkinson, Chuck Francis, james Cullar, Third Frow: George Steakley, Rufus Sivley, B. C, Rogers. TENNIS Thirty boys reported for tennis last fall, but this number was gradually reduced to the following five who did most of the competitive match playing: Rufus Sivley, George Steakley, Chuck Francis, B. C. Rogers, and Tom Hill. Usually only seniors are included on the senior teams, but this season Rufus Sivley and Tom Hill, juniors, were thought fit players for the senior division. Coached by Mr. Humphrey, the ten- nis teams played Stamford, Coleman, Mclviurry, Breckenridge, San Angelo, and Sweet- water without the loss of a game. They were defeated by Midland in a series of matches, but not before putting up a game fight. The interscholastic League rep- resentatives for Abilene tennis were Rufus Sivley and George Steakley, senior doubles, and Tom Hill, senior singles. Aided by the donation of the use of the tennis courts at North Eighth and Orange by Robert M. Wagstaff, and by the assistance of the Kiwanis Club, that donated money for the improvement of the courts, james Cullar, coach of the junior division, has given much attention to this division, the reason being that the 1939 team will prob- ably be built around these players. Outstanding junior players were Earl Hoppe, junior singles, and Tom Burditt, Dick Star, Wood Butler, lay Witbeck, and jimmy Atkinson, all contestants for the junior doubles team. Besides the regular practice and coaching, Fred Perry, world's amateur champion of 1935 and 1936 gave the teams some advice that only champions can give. The outstanding statements in the advice given were that in practice games players should not go on the court just to Win but to get practice and experience and net- ters should not burn themselves out early in their career, but should take their course leisurely until they have become experienced players. His advice was ac- cepted with enthusiasm. From the hard-working junior players of 1938 may be developed a record-brealo ing team of 1939. Page 106
