On the Water Again April 9 — Amherst College, Villanova, Univer- sity of Rhode Island at Amherst April 16 — Clark University and Wesleyan at Wesleyan. April 23 — Amherst College and Boston Uni- versity at Amherst. April 30 — Harvard, MIT, and Princeton at MIT. May 7 — Rusty Callow Regatta at Worcester. May 14 — Dad Vail Regatta at Philadelphia. The University of Massachusetts is on the water again. Not since 1871, when the " Aggies " defeated Harvard and Brown Universities, has UMass offered a rowing program. With the donation of an old shell by Yale last spring, the oarsmen began practice on the Connecticut River. A used tobacco barn in Deerfield was used as the boat house. Winter practice was carried on by the dedicated and hard working team members in Memorial Hall, and the donation of five rowing machines by Amherst College helped the squad in their vigorous training. A great deal of time and effort was put into painting old oars, refinishing the shell, and soliciting for support of the newly organized team. With a formidable spring schedule this year, UMass sports fans will be in for a new and exciting treat in the up-and-coming crew team. Such outstanding crew squads as Harvard, MIT, Princeton, and the Dad Vail Regatta Club of Philadelphia will round out the open- ing season of the UMass crew team. •r ■ ' •■ »

TENNIS TEAM — First Row: Mike Rose, Harvey Mednicov, Roger Harper, John Gutt. Second Row: Steve Ezer, Steve Johnson, Bob Hugo, Jerry Johnson, Coach Steve Kosakowski. 1965 Tennis Coach Kosakowski ' s varsity tennis team compiled an excellent 9-1 record during the regular season and was the only winning spring sqtiad for the Redmen in varsity competition. Bolstered by a strong squad of senior lettermen, the racketmen from UMass hammered victory after victory losing only to a powerful West Point team. Outstanding individual performer for the Redmen was Mike Ross, senior captain. Bob Neal and Steve Johnson provided the extra points in singles play during competition while Billy Martin teamed up with Ross to form one of the best doubles combinations in New England. The Redmen commenced the regular season with a stunning 5 to 4 victory over versatile MIT; the first victory ever by UMass over the Boston team. Jerry Johnson, sophomore sensation from Worcester, provided the clutch play in this match, winning the last team point of the day over his MIT opponent after having been down 4 to 1 initially. Other than a close 5 to 4 win over Yankee Conference rival Connecticut, and the MIT score, the UMass tennis team scored lop- sided victories over its other rivals. For the third year in a row the tennis squad finished second in the Yankee Conference competition behind Vermont. In the New Eng- land ' s, UMass finished eighth out of more than thirty participating teams. Jerry Johnson exhibits his grace? 180
