In spite of the loss of Doug Pirnie, ace sprint man, who pulled a muscle in his leg shortly before the meet, the track team took fourteen out of fifteen firsts o swamp Tufts and Connecticut in its opening meet of the season held last Saturday at Soldiers Field. The final score was Harvard 120, Tufts 27 1/2; and Connecticut 17 1/2.
Immediately after the victory, Jack Hunter '46, the team's mainstay in the hurdle events, was elected captain for this season. Hunter, who won both the high and low hurdles, served for two years in the Army Medical Corps.
Jack Fisher was high scorer for the meet with 12 points, winning the hammer throw with a mark of 153 feet 2 inches, a scant two feet further than his brother Willo reached. In addition he captured the discus with a throw of 130 feet 6 inches and took a third in the shotput.
Bob Clark joined Hunter and Fisher in annexing two firsts for the Crimson. He won the 220-yard dash in 23.3 seconds and the 440-yard run in 52 seconds. Violent head winds which blew clouds of dust around the Stadium were largely responsible for the poor times turned in.
Frank Cassidy of Tufts, New England intercollegiate mile champ, was the man who spoiled a clean sweep for the Crimson. Pacing himself nicely he won the mile by fifty feet in 4:44.3.
The Crimson "B" team was not so fortunate in its meet with Andover at Andover, losing by a score of 61-29. Frank Haydock won the 100-yard dash to take the only first for the Crimson.
