VARSITY TENNIS By Page, Hill Crnpo, IJavf (jrveley, (axiiIi Jack Turney, Curl Coons. Ceorge Kavenscrojl, 1m 1 I Shanglc MAJOR " W " WINNERS INCLUDED: GEORGE RAVENSCROFT DEWEY OSTROM BILL CRAPO DAVE GREELEY CURT COONS LADD SHANGLE BYRON PAGE A smooth-stroking, sophomore-dominated varsity tennis team won back the Northern division net crown from Oregon State to whom they had lost it in 1937. The squad went through their schedule defeated but once. George Ravenscroft, classy little sophomore, lost a singles match to an Oregon Stale man for the only blemish on the otherwise perfect record. His doubles partner. By Page, Coa ;Ii Jack Torney ' s star player, has not lost a game since his days on the freshman team. Page outclassed his opponents, winning every match with com- plete ease. Bill Crapo, classified by Torney as the steadiest player, will be missed by the squad due to graduation. Crapo, a three-year letterman, was not a spectacular player but earned his points by steady and smart playing, usually winning by well-placed shots. Cannon-ball serves were Curt Coons ' specialty and together with his hard, flat drives, he mowed the opposition down. Herb Baumgartner, Dave Greeley, Ladd Shangle, and Dewey Ostrom made up the rest of the squad, one of the most powerful tennis aggregations Washington has had in recent years. The Husky 1938 net team climaxed their season in the North- ern Division Conference Meet with Page annexing the North- west Singles championship and he and his doubles partner, Ravenscroft coming through to win the doubles championship. Coach Torney ' s teams are usually pointed out as the team to beat at the beginning of each season. He took over the coach- ing job six years ago and has produced a championship team every year with the exception of 1937 when the title went to Oregon Slate. 215
