Quarter Mile Cup

The '86 quarter mile cup will not be offered for competition this spring. It was thought inadvisable to allow the quarter-milers to hold a special event for it, previous to the dual games, and since that time many of the men have broken training. Those who have not are working in preparation for the intercollegiate games and could not safely enter any outside contest. The cup was presented to the Athletic Association by S. Gannett Wells '86, for the purpose of encouraging quarter mile runners. It was won in 1898 by H. H. Fish '99, in 50 3-5s.
