E. W. Leonard '03 and W. S. Warland '03 won the championship doubles in the fall tennis tournament yesterday, defeating S. H. Derby 3L. and W. D. Herrick 3L. 6-1, 4-6, 6-4, 6-2.
Leonard and Warland took the net as usual, and kept their opponents in the back court throughout the entire match. Their net game was steady and accurate, and they covered the court well, seldom allowing their opponents to pass them. The match was won by excellent team work and hard smashing at the net.
At first Derby and Herrick attempted to hold the net, but they were continually forced into the back court by their opponents' superior volleying. In the second set they played from the back court, and won by their effective base line game. Their lobs and swift low ground strokes were well executed and hard to control at the net. They lost the match through their inability to reach the net, and their erratic work in the back-court.
