Though at first the prospects were very encouraging, the work of the team has lately been rather poor. The backs and interference seem slow in starting and do not strike the line with any force. However, the personnel of the team is quite strong and their showing would seem to depend on their success in getting well together in the team play.
The '99 team has played only a few preliminary games, most of the work being the practicing of signals and a few scrub games with the other class teams. The first regular game was with the English High team, which proved very weak, allowing a score of 24 points to be run up in two short halves. From then until the Groton game of this week there have been only practice line-ups with the Freshmen and 1900, so that it has been hard to judge of the work of the team.
