Captain Mary Wellinghoff, who led the team in ace spikes and serve recep- tion, was chosen for the All-Metro team, while Michelle Berkland was named to the second team. Debbie Rivas, Shiloh Sorenson, and Jenny Beck earned honor- able mention. The Spikers took on the Gridders for a battle of the sexes in a volleyball match which proved the girls ' enthusiam. In the first game the Spikers blew away the football players, 15-2. However, in the second game the boys were almost vic- torous; but again the girls stopped them, 15-10. Michelle Berkland: Because of all the ef- fort and enthusiasm shown by everyone on the team, we had a good season and a lot of fun. Mary Wellinghoff: The season went well.

Rails survive tough season The varsity football team, led for the second consecutive year by Head Coach Tim Miller, ended the season trium- phantly with a 14-0 win over the East Scarlets at Williams Stadium. The game was scoreless until the second half when quarterback Jamey DeAngelo passed to Brad Dittmar, who ran 73-yards for a touchdown. On East ' s next possession, Brad Ditt- mar intercepted a pass to set up Lin- coln ' s second score. Brad Pippett was the next to receive for a 36-yard pass to the end zone for another touchdown to bring the Rails to a 12-0 advantage. The final 2-point conversion by Joel VanderWerff made it 14-0. The Gridder ' s previous battles were not as successful. Opening the season, the Rails suffered a disappointing 26-6 loss to the Bobcats in Marshalltown. Starting quarterback Gary Gioffredi was tackled in the second half and sus- tained a broken leg that put him out for the rest of the season. The Rails dominated the next match against the Valley Tigers, who were rat- ed at the beginning of the season, result- ing in a 20-14 victory. The Gridders didn ' t do as well against the Cyclones in Ames, losing 21-12. Homecoming spirits were high as the Rails took on the Hoover Huskies, but the Huskies found their weaknesses and overcame the Rails, 15-13. The Gridders didn ' t play up to poten- tial against the Roosevelt Roughriders, failing 23-7. The Rails came back, how- ever, to keep the North Polar Bears win- less with a 26-12 victory. The Dowling Maroons proved tough and defeated the Gridders once again in a 35-22 battle. Captain Ace Hendricks commented, ' ' We had set high goals for the season, but injuries to our key players and lack of depth hampered our season. " 1. Varsity Football Coaches: Ace Hendricks, Tim Miller, Roger Hart, and Hugh Drake. 2. Coach Tim Miller watches his Rails with nervous anxiety. 3.
