Nick Ludington defeated James Bostwick in the finals of the U.S. Court Tennis Association junior handicap tournament yesterday, 6-3, 6-3, at Tuxedo Park, N.Y., Racquets and Tennis Club.
Three other Crimson racquetmen, George Harding, John Mortimer, and Dwight Davis, played in the tournament, with Harding and Mortimer reaching the semi-final round. In the semi-finals, Ludington beat Mortimer, 6-4, 6-3, and Bostwick topped Harding, 6-4, 6-5. Davis lost in the first round to James Brady of Yale, 6-5, 6-3.
Bostwick, a minus half thirty player, had the highest handicap in the tournament, giving fifteen points a game to Ludington, a minus half fifteen player.
The Varsity and Freshman fencing teams held a practice meet with M.I.T. Saturday afternoon at the I.A.B. Unofficial scoring indicated the superiority of the Crimson fencers, although coach Edo Marion said that the Crimson teams were not as good as they looked and need intensive training.
The schedules for each team will be tough this year, according to Marion. The Crimson will play three of their matches against teams from the New York and Philadelphia areas, which annually produce strong fencers.
