Gaining the deciding points in the last event of the meet, the Phillips Andover Academy track team won the Harvard Interscholastics in the Stadium Saturday with a total of 41 9-20 points. The Phillips Exeter took second place with 32 13-20 points, Worcester third with 17 1-5, and the Allen School fourth with 11.
Until the hammer throw, the last event on the program to be finished, the Andover men were leading their Exeter rivals by only a fraction of a point. But the former took both first and second places in this event, thus clinching the meet.
Avery of Andover was high scorer of the contest, winning both the 120-yard high hurdles and the broad jump. In the former event he established a new Harvard Interscholastic Meet record, covering the distance in 15 3-5 seconds. Colson of the Allen School equalled the present record of ten seconds flat in the 100-yard dash.
