Perhaps in no other sport has there been more interest created in the past year
than in tennis among girls. Starting with little material, Miss Vivian Liddell devel-
oped in her three seniors and three juniors players who were a credit to the school.
ln the first and only dual meet of the year, the Baird tennis girls found the Abilene
girls exceedingly hard to handle. Ruth Hammond, senior singles, defeated Baird
singles 6-2, 7-5. Betty lo Delano, junior singles, defeated Baird junior netters by a 6-4,
6-l count. The junior doubles team, composed of Blair Morton and lanelle Warren,
downed Baird junior doubles 6-2, 6-l.
At the San Angelo lnvitation Tournament the girls again gave a good account
of themselves. Although the senior doubles, composed of Louise Page and Merlyn
Mattes, lost in the first round, their first round opponents were the experienced San
Angelo doubles. Ruth Hammond, senior singles, also lost her first match.
The next week-end was District Meet. There Louise
Page, playing singles, advanced to the finals by drub-
bing Loraine in the first round, Wylie in semifinals,
and losing to Sweetwater in the finals by a score of
6-2, 6-2. Merlyn Mattes and Ruth Hammond went to
the semifinals in doubles by downing Stamford 6-4,
6-2, but losing next to Roby 6-2, 6-6. Thus ended the
season with the best showing of girls tennis in recent
