Final Kirkland Lead in Straus Race 6 1-2 Points

Few Letdowns Cost Lowell Championship As Deacons Finish First in Six Seasons


Kirkland's margin of victory is the Strains Trophy race was a mere six and one half points, according to final standings released yesterday by Director of Intramural Dolph Samborski. This is the second straight year that the Deacons have won the Trophy.

Leverett's softball team best Winthrop, 9 to 8, yesterday, and the win pushed Lowell's point total upward, though the Deacons clinched the Trophy yesterday. The Bellboys also took a for foisted golf match from Winthrop to make their final score 1337 1/2 points. Kirkland had 1344.

The Deacons rodeo to the Trophy on the crest of championship seasons in basketball, volleyball, and track, Kirkland also won the tennis and fencing titles. In addition, the Deacons won the House cross-country crown.

Consistent Deacons

Lowell was first only in touch football and wrestling. The Bollboys lost principally because of poor football, boxing, and cross-country records. They placed sixth in football, seventh in cross-country, and last in boxing. Kirkland, on the other hand, never finished lower than sixth, anywhere. Most of the time the Deacons were in the first four places.

The final Kirkland triumph was assured Tuesday when Adams tied Winthrop, 4 to 4, in the last baseball game. Had Adams lost, Lowell would have gained enough points to take the championship.

The Leverett softball victory boosts the Bunnies into a first place tie with Dunster. The two will stage a playoff game today at 2:30 p.m. The outcome will affect the final standings of Leverett and Dunster, but will have no bearing on Kirkland's possession of the Trophy.

Bunnies Raily Again

Leverett had to come from behind again to win. Wednesday, they scored six runs in the last inning to whip Eliot, 9 to 8. Yesterday, the Bunnies counted six times over the last three innings to beat Winthrop by an identical 9 to 8 score.

Bill Borah, Leverett pitcher who picked up credit for the win, singled home the winning run in the final inning of play.
