National Championships


The Women’s and Mixed National Championships were not played because of wartime travel difficulties.

Fox Meadow teams dominated the Men’s, which was the only tournament held. Charley O’Hearn won his third title over future Hall of Fame inductee John Moses.

Historical Factoid: At the time Moses, who had grown up at Fox Meadow, was 19 and in military service between stints at Yale; he became the youngest finalist in the history of the game.
