NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Harvard's intramural boxing championships ended in a blaze of glory yesterday before an appreciative crowd at the IAB.

Eliot Houses boxers captured five individual titles to clinch the team championship.

Bill Weeks of Dudley House, an AAU champion, won a lopsided decision over Ken Sandler of Quincy House in the 155 pound class. Sandler's punch-and-pray strategy held up for two rounds before the champ finally found his range.

"Crazy Joe" Tibbetts of Quincy House came back strong in the final two rounds to win by a decision over Ray Healy of Leverett House for the 165 pound crown.

Eliot's Andy Grainger recorded the only TKO in the House competition as he captured the 135 pound title from Quincy's Doug Bromley.

130 Guthrie (Eliot) d. Grossman (Winthrop)--decision
