Rain interrupted most matches and they had to be

and Washington 15 to Ol. Two tough losses came against
Lincoln 10 to 51, and Wilson 10 to SJ, in matches which
"could have gone either way", according to Mrs. Virginia
Cook, tennis coach.
The first girl on a Benson tennis team was Gloria
Wallberg 1l lj, who participated in six matches. She
played the 42 ranked girl from other schools. Her final
record was 4 wins and 2 losses. She was entered in the
district tournament playoffs in May.

nakis1l2l, Robert Johns 1llj, and Pat Walsh 1121. Doubles
