First Row: Mary Dorn, Merlyn Mattes, Virginia Work, Laverne Baker.
Second How: Lavon Baker, Constance Corrie, Marjorie Langdon, Monarae Schultz.
A division of Abilene sports that has revived in interest this year is girls'
tennis. Ten girls reported, but after eliminations, this number was reduced to
six. Those doing most of the competitive playing were Lavon Baker, Laverne
Baker, Constance Corrie, Merlyn Mattes, Virginia Work, Monarae Schultz, and
Marjorie Langdon. From the very beginning, there was a scramble for posi-
tions because all the girls were about evenly matched. ln the senior division,
Monarae Schultz, Marjorie Langdon, and Virginia Work fought for the first
singles position. These girls played Breckenridge with Monarae Schultz and
Virginia Work playing doubles and Marjorie Langdon as singles representa-
tive. When they played Coleman, this arrangement was changed with Mona-
rae Schultz as singles representative and Marjorie Langdon and Virginia Work
teamed for the doubles positions. The outstanding players in the junior divis
ion were Laverne and Lavon Baker. These players did Well for the little prac-
tice and experience they had had. They lost to both Breckenridge and Cole-
man, but not before a clean, stiff battle. g
These girl netters are loyal Eagles who really enjoyed the game that they
strive so eagerly to perfect themselves in. There is an urgent need for a girls'
division in the sports of Abilene High School. An idea seems to have grown
up in the past years that girls should be eliminated from all forms of sports.
That was certainly a strong reason Why girl netters were unable to set any
records this season, although fine results were obtained for the little founda-
tion that they had. lt is highly probable that a strong girls' tennis organization
will be built around the fine material that was developed this season.
