Women's Tennis Final

Women's Tennis Final

Defeating Elizabeth Maclean, holder of the N.Z. University Women's Singles title. 6/3. 1/6. 6/4. Kathleen Pears won the Women's Singles Championship last Sunday after a match in which the winner's steady, attractive stroking and sound tactics prevailed against the more forceful and aggressive play of her opponent.

Kathleen took six games in a row to take the first set after trailing 0-3, was content to let the second set go when her opponent established a strong lead therein, and bad Just sufficient in hand to stave off a determined challenge in the third. It was Elizabeth Mac Loan's first defeat by a V.U.C. player for some considerable time.
