June 4, 1886
Playing before "a large, appreciative audience" in the first Annual Lawn Tennis Tournament, Adeline McKinlay '88 won gold medals "of dainty design" for the singles title, and, with Belle Skinner '87, for the doubles championship. "The playing began promptly at half past eight o'clock in the morning and continued until 6 o'clock in the evening.... Most of the players were at their best and showed a considerable degree of skill. Gold medals of dainty design were awarded to the winners." Vassar Miscellany, July 1886.
