The University second tennis team was defeated 5-4 last Saturday afternoon at Andover by Phillips Academy in a match where both teams gained three points in the singles, but the University men were unable to win the necessary two matches in the doubles. The first two doubles combinations of Andover, which was champion of New England last year, were too strong for the University combinations, Cabot and Harrington, Upjohn and Duncan.
