Varsity Tennis Team to Embark On Series of Southern Matches
The varsity tennis team will embark upon its annual trip to the south, this weekend in order to pick up some valuable pre-season practice against some of the perenially strong southern squads. The team will play the University of North Carolina on April first and second, Duke the third and fourth, and Navy the sixth.
The trip will give varsity coach Jack Barnaby an opportunity to watch his players in action against some stiff competition, and give the players a chance to sharpen up their games for the season's opener April 17 against M.I.T.
The Crimson lineup is, at this early date, still indefinite, but Barnaby hopes to have a much clearer picture of the team rankings when the squad returns from the South at the end of the vacation.
The regular season may be a little rocky travelling for the varsity since it has lost several key players from last year's championship team and will play a very strong Presbyterian College team plus the Yale and Princeton teams, both deep in returing lettermen and freshman players up on the varsity.
Yale, with several excellent men up from last year's freshman squad, will probably be the Crimson's toughest foe.
