Cavicke's Surprise 220 Win Cinches Varsity Victory as Freshmen Lose


Saturday was Derby Day at New Haven, but out on sun-baked Dewitt Cuyler Field it was the visiting Harvard track team that went to the races, rolling to a 711/2 to 631/2 victory. The Eli Freshmen salvaged at 681/2 to 661/2 win over their Crimson counterparts.

Although the Varsity grabbed 10 out of 15 firsts, multi Eli seconds, and thirds kept the outcome of the meet in doubt right up to the next to last event, the 220, when Crimson-jerseyed Dave Cavicke surprised everybody by bounding down the middle of the track to paydirt. At this point, there was much clearing of throats and muttering of "that's that" by hoary Eli grads and straw-hatted under-grads alike.

Immediately afterwards, Captain Wes Flint rippled over the 220 lows in 23.8, just two tenths of a second off the Harvard record, but instead of being the meet's clincher, it was only the denouement.
