I I Riding the Rails We move along the tracks from today to tomorrow, searching for new experiences. We cannot live in yester- day, but must cherish the past, while challenging the future. The following pages are a scrapbook of the past and a glimpse of the future. It is a definition of what Lincoln High School is all about in pictures and phrases: pride, spirit, dedication, fun - the best years of our lives. We must not forget the past; we will remember, as we continue to ride the rails to the future. 3 1. Michelle Boldt attempts to control her excitement at a pep assembly. 2.

The objectives were to im- prove staff use of instructional time, and to improve public understanding of Lincoln High School and its programs. An inservice day in February provided faculty members with time to devote to improvement of teaching techniques. Work continued on the multi- cultural, non-sexist approach to classroom teaching. Probably the objective students saw most clearly was the Needs Assessment Survey taken by all seniors in December. The purpose of this assess- ment is to give seniors a voice in determining future curriculum. 10 1 2 1. Melvin J.

The role of the counselors is to prepare sche- dules, inform students of the arrival of college representatives, answer questions concerning seniors about financial aid and grants, and give per- sonal guidance on a one-to-one basis. Counseling helpers assist the counselors by ans- wering telephones, relaying messages and doing errands. Off ice helpers, under Robert Wilson ' s supervision, give the office similar help in the vice- principal ' s office. Office Helpers: (left to right) Jolene Brooks, Sue Schurman, Tiffany Jones, Margaret Noyes. 13 English classes stress reading, writing skills English classes stress oral and written communication skills and often offer a beginning experience that starts students reading for pleasure during their leisure time. Among the six semesters of required English, one must be speech. Over 23 electives include literature, writing, drama, journalism, and debate. Classes stress communi- cation skills. Shirley Corkhill remarked, " We, in the Eng- lish department, believe we have some of the best course offerings to help students realize their full potiential. " 1 .

Debaters excell; compete at state The Debate team coached by Linda Schlak kept busy almost every weekend earning 75 National Forensic League (NFL) points. The team started off the year with a retreat at Bortell ' s Ranch. They competed in tourna- ments at Ottumwa, Roosevelt, Dowling, Wav- erly, Atlantic, Bettendorf, Iowa City, and went undeafeated at Hoover. State qualifiers included Mike DeYoung, Roger Karnes, Roger Keho, Todd Syverson, LeAnn Morris, Desi Schoolerand Bonnie Mehl. ' The squad had one of the best invitational records to date.

Students often prove, analyze, and apply scientific principles by combining experiments and lab work. Biology and zoology classes dissect various animals to learn about basic body functions, while conservation, botany, and ecology classes learn about nature and it ' s importance. Physics, electricity, chemistry, and physiology stu- dents work with vectors, forces, motions, currents, chem- icals and charts dealing with the human body.

" Due to the rapidly expanding technology involving computers, our students who are taking mathematics need to be computer literate, " said Bagby, " We are trying to do this in our College Math and Calculus classes. " Algebra I, Geometry, and Algebra II are offered to pro- vide students with a good foundation for many careers and are prerequisites for College Math. Students looking for the ultimate challenge may take calculus after college math. General Math I and II present math for use in everyday life, and math lab enables students to study at their own pace.

Foreign languages combine learn- ing with interest, and French, Latin, and Spanish students find their stu- dies can be fun as well as beneficial. Providing the necessary prepara- tion for college, languages help stu- dents better understand English grammar and vocabulary. Clubs participated in numerous activities. Spanish classes had a Hal- loween party with creative cos- tumes. Third and fourth year French classes published a French news- paper. French classes enjoyed French food at their Christmas par- ty. Latin, necessary to become a doc- tor or lawyer, combines first and second years. Senior Chris Miller said, " Taking Latin has really helped me understand English better, and it ' s real interesting too. " 1. Spanish ghost, Rhonda Chapman haunts the halls before the Halloween party. 2. Andy Edwards, senior, looks dumbfounded as he is asked to recite the alphabet in French. 3. Matt Amend, junior, might be saying. Hey look. I can write in Latin! " 4.

With such a variety of choices, the student is able to go into a career field with the know- ledge needed to succeed in the business world. Senior Nancy Pascuzzi said, " Clerical prac- tice is a great class to take if you want to get ahead in the business world. It teaches filing, typing on different kinds of machines, and gives students experiences with payroll forms and invoices. 1 .

Pierce elected state president For the first time in Office Educa- tion Association (OEA) history, a state president was elected. Senior Jim Pierce, as president, represented Iowa at the national convention in Nashville, Tennessee, and was in charge of all state general sessions. OE is a program that develops skills in an office job and helps in future career decisions. With the biggest class in OE history and a tight job market, it was a major task for Coordinator Janyce Abarr to find jobs for her students. Special activities undertaken by OE were collecting for UNICEF, or- ganizing the Special Olympics canned food drive, and selling car- nations. Top Kat Kits, cheese and sausage and Lincoln necklaces were other fund raisers. 21 AMERICA wn .., r c t iKCOLM First hour DECA officers: (first row) Terri Caligiuri, president; Jim Voitel, vice-president; Kristi Hibbs, Secretary; Lori Burgett, treasurer; (second row) Tony Fronk, parliamentarian; Dave Emerson, historian; Kim Vird en, secretary.

DECA seeks opportunities Distributive Education Clubs of America (DECA) has three main goals: to provide students with a knowledge of industry and business, gain skills, acquire experience in work, and help students earn money while still in school. DECA can be divided into three parts: class, job, and the DECA club itself. The class provides the opportunities to gain knowledge and skills necessary for industry and business. The job lets students use these skills, and DECA provides the chance for personal and social development. DECA creates a posi- tive attitude, and teaches students to work with others. 1 .

All materials, including records and filmstrips are also growing each year. Lillian Cole supervises the library, while Ann Hoehle serves the library on a part time basis, dividing her time between Lincoln and East. The library clerk, Mary Jane Willey, is responsible for all clerical work. Miss Cole commented, " Students help this year, too. One of the things that I ' m really enjoying is the student staff o, 18. Without them, this job would be a lot hard er. " Checking books in and out, helping library users, and answering general questions are some of the jobs of the student staff. Each staff member is also responsible for a particular section to see that the incoming books are shelved. 1. On mime initiation day, Ruth Stafford hides out in the library. 2. The foosball table is a gathering point for experts of the game. 3. Seniors Mark Cox and Liz Frome try out the new sharpshooter ma- chine. 4. Wanda Weberg eyes a student as he tries to skip out.

Playing games such as foosball, Gorf, pinball, Commander, and Defender is often more popular than studying. Food and music round out the relaxed atmosphere. Teachers are on duty each hour super- vising the students and taking atten- dance. Wanda Weberg said, " Students are very well behaved, and I have very little trouble keeping things in order. " 25 Gordon Blenderman John Carle Classes are varied in social sciences Every year students are becoming more aware of world problems in the social science department. Along with the required history, government, and economics courses, students may seek out other areas of interest such as sociology, psychology, and current issues. International Relations and Emerging Na- tions are courses which deal with a deeper study of the nation ' s welfare. This department equips students with knowledge from which they will benefit throughout their lives.

Along with helping the students function in regular academic areas, time is spent improving such skills as reading, mathematics, language, and writing. In addition, the use of small group settings allows the student to receive the individual attention needed before leaving high school. Students help nurse Nurse ' s helpers are a volunteer group who donate time to file, type, take phone messages, and do other necessary tasks in the nurse ' s office. In reward for their efforts, Alice Bowling ' s helpers receive one-fourth credit per semester, plus the experience that comes from working in an office. 1 .

The semesters are divided into six-week units of various activities. The units are choosen strictly by the stu- dents according to their own interests. Selections include individual activities as well as team activi- ties. Students are able to compete against and com- pare themselves to other students. The PEOPEL program (Physical Education Opportunity Program for Exceptional Learners) was a new pilot program offered second semester. It provided individualized learning made possible through trained student aides. The PEOPEL class was under the guidance of physical education spe- cialists, Tom Cady and Ronadel Davis. Mr. Cady said, " The PEOPEL class was one of the most rewarding experiences I ' ve had in 31 years of teaching. " 1. Students listen to instructions before starting a vigorous work-out in the weight room. 2. Sophomores Denise May and LeAnn Browne participate in an aerobics class. 3.

Art classes improve basic artistic skills Offering a variety of classes, the art depart- ment provides the basics for students planning to continue in Art. Drawing, painting, and crafts are only a few of the many areas covered. Studentsalso learn todevelopan appreciation for the history of art. Improving artistic skill is the goal of second 4 and third year classes. Students who develop Carroll Bennink Karl Killinger Vocal, band courses promote future goals The music department is composed of seven different classes, all varying in degrees of skill. The department is both vocal and instrumen- tal, and requires talent in each field. All the classes meet at least four times a week learning new material for various shows put on thoughout the year for the public. All the time and effort are not just musical; they spend a particular amount of time study- ing the history of music. These vocal and instrumental courses provide students with basic training that assists for future vocational areas. Every student participating in the music department receives a full credit from the course. 1. Hilary Brown (far right) marvels at Ruth Patch ' s sing- ing ability. 2. Carroll Bennink is pleased with the sounds of Concert Choir. 3. Concert Choir practices a unison yawn. 3. Kelly Venn and Sue Boubin prepare a muffin batter in their foods and nutrition class. 5 6.

The courses range from Textiles Clothing to Personal Family Living. 7 31 t Eugene Clark Kenneth Kelling Robert Locker Gary McClanahan Robert Wren Industrial arts classes prove fun, rewarding Industrial arts classes consist of metal and wood- shops, drafting, and auto mechanics. Each prove to be fun as well as rewarding. According to Gary McClanahan, woodworking in- structor, students benefit from industrial arts in three ways: by developing a hobby for spare time; by acquir- ing knowledge of a trade skill so as to design and produce a project; by getting students who would not normally go to college interested in higher education. Mr. McClanahan has had students win scholarships through their woodworking class and go on to receive degrees not even related to the woodworking industry. 1. Rodney Benson points out fine detail on his project to Gary McClanahan. 2. Larry Helms and Earl Banaster work together in auto mechanics. 3.

Five teachers handle a group of 329 students who are broken down into three parts, class, simulator, and driving instruction. Driver education will be offered first smemester only since instructors will be needed at other schools. Students who are unable to take driver education first semester will have to enroll in summer school or wait until next year. 33 Peer Helpers: (first row) Stephanie McKee, Tanya (third row) Russ Gillum, Steve Lewellyn, Robbie Grant, Warren, Tracy Schartner, Julie Severino, Lorrie Streyf- John Fraser, Matt Mitchell, Tom Ramsey, Dan Burgett, feler, sponsor, (second row) Mary Nichols, Lisa Blodgett, Ron Heritage, (not pictured) Lisa Sullivan. Dina Rich, Debbie Bunce, Selena Collett, Lory Randle, Peer helpers counsel students Peer Helpers are a selected group of students, who try to help other students through hard times and difficult situa- tions. Whether a student is confused, angered, hurt, or pressured, Peer Helpers listen. Any student can talk to a Peer Helper whether his problem is a minor situation or a major crisis. Peer Helpers donate their time to learn better communicating skills. Although they are not qualified to advise students, they act as listeners and are familiar with referral agencies that can give further help. Sponsor Lorrie Streyffeler discusses activities for Peer Helpers with senior member of the group, Lisa Sullivan. 34 Operations Food Service 3 Steve Barns Dale Collins Jeanette Dickhoff Frank Funaro Louis Gulino Gerald Knutson Charles McClelland, chief eng.

Lowell Dougherty 1922-1982 His name was Lowell Dean Dougherty, but he preferred " Jim. " He spent 30 years of his life teach- ing math. In his 18 years at Lincoln, he influenced countless students with his firm dedication to learn- ing, his warm friendliness, and his gentle humor. He expected a great deal of his students, and in return, he gave a great deal. He never failed to greet them with a friendly " Hi " and a smile. He always had " time to talk. " His students, as well as his fellow faculty members, loved and respected him. Love for his students and enthusiasm for teaching was only the tip of the iceberg with Jim Dougherty. Love and enthusiasm extended into all aspects of his life. With his wife Ruth and son John, he loved to Now you have observed my teach- ing, my conduct, my aim in life, my faith, my patience, my love, my stead- fastness . . . II Timothy 3:10 Every blade in the field every leaf in the forest lays down its life in its season as beautifully as it was taken up. Thoreau walk through the timber adjoining their rural Wau- kee home. His love of nature renewed his energy, and he spent it enthusiastically on tennis, boating, skiing, and bicycling. Ruth and Jim sponsored a senior high Youth Fel- lowship group at the Urbandale United Church of Christ, and together they enjoyed thegroup ' sactivi- ties. Tennis — the Doughertys would challenge anyone! Ski trip — let ' s go! Good teacher, loving husband and father, good neighbor, good friend, Jim Dougherty leftthe world a better place for having been here, left all of us richer for having known him. 38 Assemblies spark spirit; pride, victories prevail Pep assemblies organized by the Varsity Cheer- leaders helped fire up many athletes for victories. Batons, Drill Team, Flags, Pep band, " Flagettes " and Drama Club provided entertainment. Particularly lively was competition between the three classes to see who had the most spirit. At one assembly, three teachers represented the classes. The teacher of the winning class received a pie in the face. The seniors and Hugh Drake came out victorious. The Homecoming assembly, highlighting the year, included a " Flagette " performance and a sing- ing skit narrated by Hugh Kent and performed by John McNerney. Dan Burgett, Russ Gillum and Craig Miller. 40 ft " . 7 -fi 1. The varsity football captains show mixed emotions as they get kisses from unexpected admirers. 2.

Entertainment was provided by Flag Twirlers perform- ing to Groove Line, and Swing Choir sang Good Vibra- tions, Summer Me, Winter Me, and What a Difference You ' ve Made in My Life. The crowd grew silent and tension snapped as last year ' s king and queen, Tammy Rice and Neal Fraser, passed their crowns to Jerri Jackman and Bryce Thomson. The spirit exploded Friday with a pep assembly that was rated as the best one in eight years by many teachers. Drill Team received a standing ovation for their perfor- mance to Rockin ' in Paradise, and the Flagettes enter- tained the crowd to Whip it Good. Hugh Kent presented a questionnaire answered with popular songs by a quartet of singers. To climax an exciting week, the Railsplitters pulled off a 14-13 victory over Hoover with outstanding performan- ces by many players Friday night, and Saturday topped it off as Spanish Candy provided the music at the Home- coming Dance. 43 1 1.

The name was designed to generate more enthu- siasm from the student body. Four junior officers, along with sponsor Carl Van Tuyl, spent much time planning fund raisers. Sports program sales, a car wash, and a bake sale enabled the Peppers to go to out-of-town games. The main goal of the Peppers is to let the ath- letes know that the students are behind them. Majorettes display skill; capture world rankings Spotlighting the band were two of the finest majorettes in the state. Senior Christy Welch and Sophomore Renee Coffin added sparkle and piz- zaz to four basketball games and five football halftimes. Both have earned countless awards and titles for baton twirling. At the State Fair, Christy won the Senior State Baton Championship and Renee claimed the Miss Majorette ' 81 title. Christy admitted, " With having the same teacher, style, and tricks, it ' s hard to compete against each other, like at the fair, especially since we ' re good friends. 1.

Cheerleaders were responsible for or- ganizing the rowdiest assemblies possi- ble. Coach Cecil Rhoads commented, " During football season, we had one of the greatest assemblies that anyone could ask for. It was a strong motivating force and there is no doubt in my mind that it helped us win our game against Hoover. " Captains Ronda Mitchell and Karen Harvey were in charge of fund raising pro- jects which includ ed selling memo pads, Homecoming mums, hats, patches and holding a garage sale. Money from these projects was used to purchase new uni- forms. 2 Photo courtesy of Re- gister and Tribune. 50 5 1.

South Americans visit Dcs Moines Coming to a different country, not knowing the customs, was a challenging experience for Jorge Zagorski and Jane Moreira who also had to get used to a different type of school system. Jorge and Jane came to Des Moines under the Youth for Under- standing International Student Exchange program. Jorge came from an all-male, private, religious school where uniforms are required. Sports aren ' t relied on for entertainment but soccer, basketball, and volleyball are major sports in Argentina. Unlike Americans, rivalries aren ' t between other schools but between the different grades in the same school. Forentertainment, instead, they attend parties from 10 until 3:00 a.m. Jane ' s experiences included getting used to going to school all day and changing rooms for different classes. In Brazil school is from 7:30 a.m. until noon, and instead of the students changing classrooms, the teachers do the moving around. Popular sports in Brazil are also soccer, basketball, and volleyball. 1. Jorge enjoys the luxury of a pinball game since in Argentina the playing age is 18 or older. 2.

Hopes of bringing home the roses, however, quickly vanished as the Hawkeyes were badly beaten 28-0, by a talented Huskie team. Though the loss proved dishear- tening to both players and fans, most felt honored in representing the Big-Ten in college football ' s most prom- inent post-season bowl. The Hawks were led by third year coach Hayden Fry and a hardnosed defense in finishing the regular season as Big-Ten co-champs with an 8-3 record. More impor- tantly were big victories over highly ranked Michigan, UCLA, and Nebraska which provided the Hawks with well deserved national recognition. The Rose Bowl berth, however, didn ' t arrive until the final day of the season, when Ohio State upended Michi- gan and Iowa stomped Michigan State sending the Haw- keyes to their first rose bowl appearance since 1958. Rolling Stones concert Iowa was the site of many major concerts this year. Foreigner, Journey, REO Speedwagon, Neil Diamond, Air Supply and many other popular groups graced Iowa stages. The most talked about though, was the Rolling Stones concert at the UNI-Dome in Cedarfalls, November 23. Lines started forming early the day before tickets were to be sold and the concert was sold out in a matter of hours. Rain didn ' t stop the Stray Cats from opening the con- cert, with a few songs in a similar style to that of the Stones. After a 45 minute opening, the Stones were wel- comed out by a cheering crowd. They played a wide variety of their biggest hits, beginning with " Under My Thumb " . The end of the concert came quickly and people were still in an uproar. With the final song " Satisfaction " , the Stones finished off their concert with one encore. Com- menting on theconcert, Rick Felice said, " I do believethe Stones left us satisfied " . Old Man Winter " Des Moines, a surprising place " held true when it came to the weather. Des Moines experienced every type of weather possible during the entire year all within four winter months. January 1 1 the temperature fell to a chilling 22 below 82 Events 2 with a wind-chill of 67 below. Cars didn ' t start and travel was hazardous due to the extreme cold and blowing and drifting snow. School was cancelled forthree Mondays in a row. The weather showed its flexibility with a record break- ing high of a bright and sunny 68 degrees February 22 and then dipped to a cool low of 34 degrees the following day. Several inches of snow soon accumulated making travel hazardous on 100 percent ice-covered freeways and snow-covered roads. Sunshine came and melted most of the ice and snow. But, as soon as the slush came, Des Moines was again blanketed with a few more inches of now. Sleet made travel scarce and cars collided with snowbanks, tele- phone poles, and other vehicles. The record snowfall was 7 inches January 2, with an accumulation of 11 .6 inches over a 3-day span. The start of tornado season was well ahead of schedule as Des Moines experienced a tornado watch. Thunder- storms, rain, fog, and a flash flood watch took over to end the memorable winter of ' 81 - ' 82. Closing of Tech With spirit and dedication, Tech High students, pa- rents, alumni, and faculty protested the closing of Tech in 3 order to turn it into a resource center. Their protests resulted in suspensions, later withdrawn, and TV cover- age. The proposed resource center will be available to the five local high school upperclassmen who wish to attend. These students will attend their home high school for one-half day and attend the center for the other half day. Resource center classes will consist of vocational classes and advanced-level academic courses. Centraliz- ing the advanced-level classes may solve the low enroll- ment problems these classes have suffered in the individ- ual high school. However, vast problems, still unresolved, exist in implementing the program. The last graduating class from Tech will be the class of ' 86. Next year ' s freshmen will be the last freshmen class enrolled, if the plan for the resource center is approved by the School Board in November. 1.

As the season pro- gressed, they put things together to take fourth in the Metro. With a record of 8-6 and an overall record of 11-13, they placed behind East, Dowling and Valley. The Baggers experienced sec- tional action by defeating Urban- dale 4-0; then moved on to districts, only to fall to Roosevelt 2-3. " Our season ended a little short, but weshould have a strong team for next year, " said Coach Bob Locker. Post season honors went to Scott Harrison and Tim Lewis who were named second team All Metro. Honorable mention honors went to Dirk Rich and Bryan Bemisdarfer. Returning letterwinners Mike Bonanno, Rick Biondi, Bob Carle, Tony Fronk, Nick Funaro, Gary Guthrie, Ed Heritage, Scott Harri- son, Rick Johnson, Tim Lewis, Kevin Robbins and Jeff Shaw will all help make an outstanding team for the 1982 season. 1.

Undefeated, Rails take Metro Crown Accomplishing something never done before in Metro history, the girls ' softball team went undefeated through the Metro season. Although they finished second in the state tournament in 1980 and continued to play in championship form, the season ended short when they did not gain a spot in state tourney action. Even though they defeated East three times in the regular season, the Rails fell to the Scarlets in dis- trict play. Pitcher Mary Thompson said, " It ' s really hard playing a team four times. By the third or fourth time they are bound to catch on to the pitcher ' s style. " Thompson blazed through the season with her new-found drop ball boosting her season record to an outstanding 27 wins and 4 losses, 28-5 overall. Leading the team in hitting were Karen Turk, Mary Thompson, and Liz Frome, with averages of .357, .340, and .330 respectively. Post season honors went to Liz Frome, Tammy Rice, Sue Smith, Mary Thompson, and Karen Turk, each of whom were chosen for first team All Metro. Ronda Chia received second team All Metro, and honorable mention went to Vicki Knight, and Tanya Warren.

Outstanding players for the Rails were Michele Chia and Bobbi Rice who compiled a pitching record of 11-3. In hitting, Michelle L ' Estrange ended the season with a batting average of .475, while Jeannette Pai- novich was a close second with an average of .405. " This is by far one of the finest JV teams we have ever had. They will play a major role on the varsity team next year, " said Coach Jerry Schartner. 1. JV shows how to play tough defense. 2. Jeannette Painovich shows her homerun style. 3. Bobbi Rice really concentrates on the game. 4.

Jon Batye, Dave Spafford, Coach Dave The Harriers ended their season with a seventh place finish in the district meet. Captain Jon Batye managed a fifth place finish qualify- ing him for his second state meet. In the state meet, Batye found compe- tition to be a little better than in the district and managed a respectable 23rd place finish. In the Urbandale Classic, captains Dave Spafford and Jon Batye defended their title and came away victorious with a one, two finish in the senior division. Unfortunately, the Harriers could not place in the other classes and finished third in the team title. Spirits were high heading into the Metro meet until Sophomore Doug Hensley moved and transferred to North. Rain and cold dampened spirits more as the Harriers were only able to place fourth. The Harri- ers were paced by Seniors Jon Batye, Mat McClain, and Dave Spafford. 1. Captain Jon Batye picks up the pace at the Bobcat Invitational. 2.

A dual meet victory over Southeast Polk got the girls on the winning track. Returning letter- winners were Sue Ericson and Becky King. Injuries to Captain Sue Ericson left the team without leadership. Taking over the number one spot was Freshman Sheryle Crees who ran very competitively all year. Freshman Marci Sterns ran with a lot of form and was probably the strongest in endurance. Captain Chris Daugherty, who lacked endurance but had speed to burn, performed well and showed leadership capability on and off the course. Sophomore Becky King was a big help with her experience and con- sistency. Sophomore Carolyn Sara- sio showed dedication, running all year with an injured knee. Freshman Natalie Rush was able to run only one race all year because of painful shin splints. Coach Phil Martin said, ' Thegirls ' distance running team started as a young and inexperienced team when several past letterwinners did not return. However, the girls worked hard, finishing fourth in the Metro. In the district competition only two Metro teams finished above them, and I was extremely proud of their eighth place finish out of 19 district teams. " 1.

Senior Lori Neas and Freshman Linda Pierschbacher were the only entries from Lincoln. Twenty-six girls started praticing for the meets but the number soon narrowed down to fourteen. Out of those fourteen only seven were able to compete; the others were side- lined with injuries. Returning varsity members were Senior Lori Neas, Sophomores Tonya DeAngelo and Kim Thacker. Other varsity members were Juniors Dawn Rector, Dawna Stevenson and Pat Welch; Sophomores Carla Brown, Jodi Raper and Mary Scar- cello; and Freshmen Linda Pierschbacher from Weeks Junior High. From McCombs Junior High, competing freshmen were Billie Faukhauser, Dianne Rissman, and Tammy Thompson. Tracy DeGroote and Cindy Huff competed from Weeks.

The Rails, composed mainly of underclass- men, lacked important experience in the upper weights. Despite their relative inexpe- rience, they managed to capture team titles at both the Lincoln and the Knoxville Invitationals. The Rails also graobed a second place finish in the Ottumwa Invitational and battled o a fourth place finish in the Newto 1 Invitational. Dual meet victories were hard to come by, but the Rails finished with a 4-7 dual record and look forward to a promising season next year. 1. Rick Tomlinson tries to escape oppo- nents hold. 2.

Underrated Rails earn respect With many teams returning qual- ity players, the Rails were picked to lose their first six games. Going into each game as an underdog, how- ever, gave the Rails incentive to prove their critics wrong. The Rails finished the season tied for third place in the Metro and had playoff hopes up until the end. Hard work, dedication, and a lot of enthu- siasm were the main characteristics of the team. The Gridders opened theirseason against fifth rated Marshalltown. At halftime, the Rails were trailing 3-0 in a hard fought defensive battle. Then in the fourth quarter, a 65-yard touchdown pass provided the Rails with their first upset victory of the season. After suffering two hard fought defeats to highly rated East and Dowling, the Rails faced a tough Roosevelt team. Using an explosive ground attack and a hard nosed defense, the Rails were able to pull their second surprise of the season, 20-12. 1. Senior Jay Hanson runs the ball after a kickoff. 2. Dan Chastain adds another tackle to his season record of 1 1 0. 3. Lincoln ' s tough defense lines up against an opponent. 4. Tony Fronk and Tom Champ move in to rec- over a fumble caused by a Lincoln defender. 103 Gridders finish strong at 5-4 With two upsets already accomp- lished, the Gridders anxiously awa- ited their clash with third ranked Valley. This game proved to be the Rails finest performance of the season as they went into halftime trailing the powerful Tigers, 14-7. In the second half, the Rails proved to be equally tough as they took the lead, 16-14, with just a few minutes remaining. Hopes of another upset, however, were eliminated as the Tigers com- pleted a controversial pass to the one-yard line and then scored with just seconds remaining, sending the Gridders to an undeserving defeat. The Rails recovered in time to defeat Hoover in an emotional Homecoming victory, going on to defeat North and Tech, and finish- ing the season at 5-4 with a tough loss to Newton. ' The Railsplitters once again were saddled with one of the toughest schedules in the state and proved with dedication and hard work that they can play with the best, " com- mented Coach Cecil Rhoads. Five players were chosen to the first team All-Metro roster: Dave Bequeaith, defensive tackle; Tom Champ, linebacker; Dan Chastain, defensive back; Tony Fronk, offen- sive guard; and Bryce Thomson, halfback and punter. 1.

Opening their season with a vic- tory over Indianola, the young Rails then suffered four consecutive defeats before pulling themselves together to play their finest game of the season against Hoover, only to suffer a heart-breaking loss in over- time, 6-0. The Rails finished their season on a winning note by defeat- ing North and Tech. Sophomores Perry Blakely, Bren- ton Burnett, Terry Burris, Bob Clin- ton, Mike Gillespie, Chick Herbert, and Dave Patterson showed poten- tial for the varsity squad. JV gains experience With learning fundamentals and gaining experience as their main goals, the JV squad finished their season at a respectable 2-3. The Gridders opened theirseason with losses to Valley and Newton, but came back with victories over Hoover and Ames, finishing with a tough loss to Ankeny. This year ' s squad gained valua- ble experience, and should add to next year ' s varsity, " commented Coach Ace Hendricks. 1. Runningback Jim Gorsche scrambles up the middle for extra yardage. 2.

Tankers end season in great shape The Tankers finished what Coach Crawford would call a greatly improved season. The team, com- prised of sophomores, and seniors, spent 4-5 hours each day working out, swimming as much as 340 laps individually during each full day practice. Most of the teams members were sophomores who showed great speed and determination. Sopho- mores like Evan Johnston who is a two time record holder, Gil Squires, and Perry Blakley are just a few of the young Tankers. Senior Andy Edwards, who was district champion in the 200 Individ- ual Medley, and Senior Jay Hanson who led the divers, were the cap- tains of the team. The Tankers qualified in four events at State: 200 Medley Relay (Johh Braswell, Andy Edwards, Evan Johnston, and Tony Hills); Andy Edwards in the 200 I.M. and the 100 breastroke, Gil Squires in the 500 freestyle, the Medley Relay team finished 18th, 200 I.M. 15th, 500 frestyle 20th, and the 100 breas- troke 10th. 1.

Highlighting the season for the swimmers were upsets over North and East. A large number of fans gathered at the East meet to watch the 400 relay team consisting of Sel- ena Collett, Pam Hart, Andrea Kneile, and Amy Lapham. Lapham swam away withafirst place finish in the last event to clinch the victory. The team consisted of 25 swimmers and three divers. Cap- tains were Seniors Leslie Roy and Amber Parkin. Coach Bob Crawford commented that the best all around swimmers were Collett and Roy. The team practiced from 6 to 7 a.m., and returned after school to practice from 3 to 5 p.m. Overall, they swam four to five miles a day. " Of the 25 swimmers, only five will graduate " according to Coach Bob Crawford, who said, " If all the peo- ple come back next year that are supposed to, we should do even bet- ter than this year ' s team.

Although the record was 9-10, these figures are misleading. In the next few games, close losses were tallied against the Rails. Senior Sam Rizzuti was captain as well as the most valuable player, most improved, and the best on defense. Leading percentage shoot- ers from the field were Ed Heritage and Bob Carle, averaging 50.9 per- cent and 50.5 percent, respectively. The Cagers put forth their best efforts in their final game of the sea- son, but fell short of a victory against top-rated Roosevelt. The Rails kept it within two points until the closing minutes, where the Roughriders pulled ahead to win by freethrows. The two returning letterwinners, Seniors Carle and Heritage were named to the second team All-Metro and Honorable Mention All-State. " With the combination of return- ing members from the varsity squad and the sophomore starters, the Cagers should make the 1982-83 season a winning one, " said Coach John Carle. 1 .

Sophomore boys basketball ended with a split season of 9-10. This earned the Cagers a fourth place in the Metro. Coach Dan Higdon is pleased with the effort put forth by the boys.

Freshman Jim Webb and Soph- omore Tony Ralph played varsity as well as Seniors Jerry Barrett, Todd Daniels, Tom Guessford, Tom Mas- sey, and Junior David Garnatt.

Bruckshaw and Bendixen who qualified for state a year ago were a good bet for another state doubles qualification. Coach Van Why commented at the beginning theseason, " I ' m look- ing forward to an excellent season. Thesegirls will definitely be compet- ing for the Metro title. " The boys team faced a rebuilding year, losing all butfour returning let- termen: Juniors Ho Chae, Craig Mil- ler, Rick Walsh and Sophomore Dan Norton. The boys opened the season at Ames and competed in nine dual meets and the Hoover Invitational and then competed for state berths. " This was definitely a rebuilding year for the boys.

Tak- ing first in the Metro, they compiled an overall record of 19-4-1 and a Metro record of 13-1-0. Even though the starting team consisted of only two seniors, Kris Coleman and Vicki Knight, and four juniors, Michelle L ' Estrange, Angela Livengood, Jeannette Painovich and Rose Russo, the Spikers were well experienced with seven return- ing letter winners. Unfortunately, the girls stopped short of the State tournament when they lost a close match to Dowling in regional rounds. The team made up for this loss by ranking fifteenth in the state, the first Metro team to earn a state rank. Coach Corey said, " Next year ' s team should do equally well consid- ering we are losing only two from the starting team. JV talent will also add to make a well balanced team. " Senior Vicki Knight and Junior Michelle L ' Estrange made the first team All Metro. Senior Kris Coleman was named to the second team and Juniors Angela Livengood and Jeannette Painovich received honorable mention. 1. Vicki Knight jumps high to spike the ball. 2.

Mermaid officers were Michele Boldt, president; Ginny Heggen, vice-president; Carol Askland, secretary and treasurer; Teresa Moore, publicity. Jean Frazier, phys- ical education department, was the sponsor. As the season came to a close, several teams fought for the Metro crown. Lincoln and East were tied with the losses and Roosevelt was close beh ind with three. Showing great power the Spikers pulled out victories over Tech 15-4, 15-6; East 16-14, 15-13; and over Roosevelt 15-12,1 0-15, 1 5-1 1 to bump East from the lead. Many players have had past exper- ience and are hoping to gain a spot on the varsity squad. Team leader- ship helped with the spots on the starting squad.

These officers, along with the home- room representatives, were the hidden strength in the planning and organization of the committees. Sean Neely was chosen as president, and with this position came many responsibilities. His time was devoted to speaking at functions, working closely with committees, and representing the senior class. Sharon Long, vice-president, was mainly in charge of Class Day, but was also involved in Banquet preparations. Jerrry Barrett was elected treasurer and had many important financial duties. Jerry worked closely with Senior Advisor Robert Wilson in the collection of dues and the balancing of the books. Christy Welch, secretary, was in charge of taking notes at meetings. She was also responsible for writing letters and sending invitationstoguestspeakersto requesttheir presence at many of the activities. The Senior Banquet was a great success. The entree Sean Neely, senior class president, goes to animated extremes to get some response out of Gayle Strong, Jerilyn Duff, and Kris Coleman of the banquet committee. voted on and chosen by the seniors was prime rib. The site for the banquet was the Hotel Fort Des Moines, April 13. Prom night, April 30, is something every senior looks forward to. The theme for Prom ' 82 was The Best of Times and the band for the evening was Cruise Control. This was the second year that the Prom was held at the Drake Olmsted center. The last appearance of seniors before graduation was Class Day, May 21. This traditional ceremony included honoring the top 3 and 15 percent of the class, and the presenting of awards and scholarships. The Class of ' 82 accepted their diplomas during Com- mencement, May 23 at 3 p.m. at Veterns Memorial Auditorium. As seniors we look back upon Lincoln High and we remember the good times. We shared the happiness of victories and the sadness of defeat, joy of laughter and the sorrows of tears. After all, these were the best of times. 169 Karen Abbott Lynda Ahlberg Julie Aldini Doug Alexander Earlee Allen Shari Allison Bryan Ankeney Tracey Arpy Carol Askland Cathy Atwood Patty Austin Bounheua Baccam Cindy Backstrom Linda Backstrom Steve Backstrom Chris Bagby Terry Bainter Rhonda Baker Marjorie Ballard Jerry Barrett John Barrett Joan Bartholomew Brian Bartlett Tony Bassett Kristi Bastian Jon Batye Jeff Beals Tony Bejarno Roxanne Bell Trisha Bengfort Daniel Benoit David Bequeaith Darla Berg Bryan Bertrand Richard Biondi John Bishop Doug Bixler Peggy Bixler Randy Blackman Sherri Blackmore Steve Blaylock Steven Blevins Michele Boldt John Bolten Mike Bonnano Donald Boss Susan Boubin Paul Burris Ten Bradshaw Jim Brandt John Braswell Cindy Bresnahan Tammy Brewer John Briles Tim Brose Kirk Brown Sheri Brown Vickie Brown Willie Brown Traci Bruce Beth Bruckshaw Rhonda Bruno Jennifer Burdick Lori Burgett Thomas Caldbeck Chuck Caligiuri Brenda Camp Maria Cardenas Bob Carle Curt Carpenter Debbie Carroll David Ceron Tom Champ Vince Chia Dan Chastain Gayle Chiupka Pat Claman Darla Clark Kristy Clark Sherry Cleland Kelly Clergy Ed Cole Laura Cole Kristin Coleman Daniel Collins Michael Collins Beth Conner Howard Cook Scott Cook John Coppi Gina Cornelison Tracey Cosner Jim Costanzo Brett Cox Mark Cox Laurie Craig Dwight Crawford Chris Crees Bill Crist 173 Lisa Crowell Dan Cullen Jerry Curnes Carl Curran Scott Curry Tim Curtis Tina Dalton Randy Daniels Chris Daugherty Ernie Davenport Angie Davis Tamara Davis Lucia DeAngelis Martin Denny Mike DeReus Denise Deshler Michelle DeWitt Pon DeYoung Stacy DiMaggio Lisa Doane Steve Downey Tammy Drummond Steve Duede Jerilyn Duff Andy Edwards Tracey Eginoire Kathy Eikleberry Shelley Ekstrom Peggy Ellis Craig Else Dave Emerson Brad Enslow Doug Erickson Crystal Euritt Jamie Ewald Rick Felice Crystal Finch Tammy Fisher Noreen Fitzgerald Joleen Flatt Diane Flickinger Mary Fogue Tom Grubbs, head of the rowdies, displays his cheerleading abilities. 175 Brian Foust Eric Foust Kori Foust Joe Frahm Gregory Francisco Eric Frangos Torsha Franklin Jill Freel Tracey Freel Robert Friedman Roger Friedman Elizabeth Frome Tony Fronk Tom Fucalaro John Funke Brian Fuqua Terry Gable Laura Gants Glenda Garnett Mary Gates Tim Gedler 176 Marty Geyer Cindy Ghee Nanette Gibson Michael Gilliam Kim Glenn Frances Gomez Juan Gomez Dan Gornick Mary Gracey Dale Graeve Larry Grant Peter Green Ken Greubel Jerry Griffith Leigh Grimes Michael Groesbeck Dan Groves Tom Grubbs Craig Guessford Tom Guessford Gary Guthrie Mary Guy Lori Hackney Max Hagar Eric Hamilton Ginger Hamman Jan Hansen Lisa Harris Tycene Harris Scott Harrison Sue Harter Bill Harvey Karen Harvey Laura Hastie Tina Hayes Ginny Heggen Cathy Hemcy Minnette Heide Sharlyn Heisler Thomas Heller Connie Henderson Ed Heritage Dana Herman Kristy Hibbs Tony Hibbs Kaleen Hickman Neil High Barry Highland Dennis Hildreth Robert Hill Tami Hill 178 Karen Hitchcock Kelley Hoffmann Angela Holcomb Kathryn Hope Randy Horn Joe Hospodarsky Crystal Howe Karen Huff Dawn Hulet Scott Hutchens Jerri Jackman Jackie Jones Kelly Jambretz Yvonne James Angela Jasper Tom Johnson Scott Johnson Rick Johnson George Johnson Denise Johnson Craig Jones James Jones John Jordan Kim Jorgensen Richard Judkins Henry Kaczmarek Curtis Kading Hugh Kale Carmen Kauzlarich 179 Roger Keho Tim Kelderman Jodi Keller Kris Keller Dan Kephart Mark Killin Janette Kmcheloe Kelly Kirts Jerry Barrett thinks of devious ways to get Chris Coleman in trouble Brian Klimowski Lori Klug Lisa Knight Vicki Knight Kenny Knode Kirk Lacquement Mary Lammers Jeffrey Lane Michael Leach Rod Leach f mm i Ruth Leege Dave Lemons Frank Leo Andy Lewis Larry Lewis Tim Lewis Tim Lindemoen Tom Lindemoen Sharon Long Lori Loney Cheri Loomis Pheuane Lovan Chris Ludlow Christy Lukenbill Melvin Lundy Lucille Lyman Lori Maldonado Bob Mann 181 Gina Marquis Diane Martin Wendell Martin Mary Marturello Thomas Massey David Mattson David May Kim McAninch Rhonda McCaughey Mat McClain Julie McCoy Jim McGinnis Casey McKinnon John McNerney Doug McPhee Kelle Melton Teresa Mick Shelly Miles Chris Miller Gina Miller Scott Minard Scott Minnick Kirk Mitchell Ronda Mitchell Brad Moist Lori McGraw Kristi Moon Teresa Moore Machelle Moorehead Julie Morford Sandra Morgan Curt Mosell Linda Munoz Theresa Murphy Nora Myers Therisa Naragon 183 Regina Navin Roderick Navin Lori Neas Sean Neely Carol Nelson Clark Nelson Tracy Nelson Debra Newton David Nicoletto Judy Nisser Melissa Nittler Jonette Noble Dana Herman points out Janelle Warfields over-enthusiasm at a pep assembly.
