5-21-03 Avon Old Farms School 2:30 Avon, CT Contest cancelled due to inclement weather.

AVON, CT--Although both squads--each undefeated in League play this spring--were eager to play this final dual match of the season, Mother Nature could not be coerced into giving us clear skies under which to compete. The Wild Boars waited nearly two hours on the Avon campus for courts to dry, but apparently it was not meant to be. Efforts to reschedule were foiled by continuing bad weather and end-of-term commitments at the two schools. Thus Choate and Avon Old Farms will share the 2003 championship. This constitutes the fourth straight title for the Blue and Gold and the sixth in the last seven years.
