Harvard Tennis Team Takes 3rd In N.E. Tourney

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Crimson sophomore John Levin reached the finals at both the singles and the doubles in the New England Intercollegiate Tournament at Yale this weekend, but his outstanding play couldn't bring any of the three titles home to Harvard.

Dartmouth senior Charlie Hoeveler was a double winner, playing the best day's tennis of his life. He avenged last month's loss to Levin with an 8-6, 6-0 win in the singles finals, then teamed with Bill Kirkpatrick to down Rocky Jarvis and a tired Levin for the doubles crown, 6-4, 6-1.

The team title went to Williams, though no Ephman reached the semifinals of either tournament. Dartmouth finished one point back, with the Crimson third, two points off the pace.

Jarvis Brilliant

Levin did not lost a set on his way to the finals, crushing third-seeded Steve Beik of Wesleyan 6-3, 7-5 in the semifinals. Jarvis's brilliant serving and volleying carried the doubles load, as the Crimson duo edged Amherst's top tandem in a hree-set quarter-final match and blasted Yale's top team of Jack Waltz and Mike Brooks in the semis, 6-3, 6-2.

Poor showings by Harvard's other two entrants cost the Crimson a shot at the team title. Defending champion Bernie Adelsberg lost in the first round to Dartmouth's number three man, 6-2, 6-2. Captain Brain Davis outlasted Yale's fourth man in the opening bracket before bowing to Beik, 6-4, 6-2.

Adelsberg and Davis were ousted in the first round of the doubles, 6-2, 6-2, by a weak Amherst team that was clobbered, 6-1, 6-0, in the next round. A firstround doubles win would have given Harvard three points, enough for the championship.
