Academy of the Holy Angels Richfield, Minnesota
1In this year of the Bicentennial, we celebrate our freedom, our chance to be free to think and speak and act creatively.
. ■»•4Two hundred years ago it was characteristic of the young people to be the freedom fighters: leaders in the struggle for independence. Today it is a challenge for us to be leaders, to use our abilities, however big or small, to touch the lives of others.
5Everybody is a star.
Together we shine side by side, helping each other, encouraging our friends to be free-and to dream, and live out this freedom that is so unique to each individual.

Competition for MGAL Champions
Pressure was common for the girls' flag football team this year, competing against improved opponents in the MGAL. Despite a season record similar to last year's, the Co-Stars worked very hard to emerge as the lone champions. Every game was important they learned, after being upset midway through the season by last place Visitation Convent. Overtime added tension for the team and their faithful fans when two games ended in ties. However, the peak of nervous tension came when the Co-Stars displayed talent, energy, and especially determination to defeat Regina in the final minutes of the October 14 game.

91Homecoming Brings Spirit and Victory

92Amid the afternoon's activities including a pep fest and a car decorating contest, the Co-Stars fired up to "Can the Johnnies." There was an abundance of excitement and enthusiasm in the student body, which became evident during the pep fest as each class tried to out cheer the others in an attempt to paint Dan Becker their class color.
A real feeling of school spirit was in the air as everyone prepared for the Homecoming-Carnival weekend. After the battle was over and the Co-Stars had gained a 6-0 victory, everyone continued to celebrate to the music of Solstice at the Homecoming dance.

September 28th was the day that a cast of Disneyland characters paraded into the AHA courtyard.
Brave teachers took their turn in the dunk tank, while revengeful students fired away. Others used up their energy by bouncing in the Moon Walk, munching caramel apples, and eating giant pickles. Another big attraction was the jail, decorated with Disney characters. Mickey Mouse took time out to pose for pictures with ''kids'' of all ages. By the end of the day the fun turned into profit, raising S7.492.00 for Holy Angels.

96Cross Country Moves Ahead to Victory
Running is one of the most grueling sports. Two hour practices, seven miles a day, six days a week, uphill and downhill again, relays and sprints. This is what tests a runner's stamina. This is Cross Country.
This year's girls' Cross Country standings were not the most impressive. What is impressing is the dedication these girls had toward their team. The time and effort, pushing to become best, resulted in several injuries, but their spirit was ever present through the good and bad times. Their rewards, strong unity and team spirit, mean much more than a trophy could.
As the experience of the Boys' Cross Country team grows, the number of their victories and record-breaking runs mounts. Beads of perspiration upon the brow, heavy breathing and sore leg muscles all led to the sweet taste of victory. This pain and effort combined with many hours of hard practice gave the team fifteen wins and eight losses and a third place standing in the district meet.

97Together We Are One Better
Camp Courage was the setting for fun, prayer, sharing, and new friendships on two consecutive weekends in October. It was Senior Retreat, a time to slow down and get to know other members of the Senior class better. There was enthusiastic participation in many different activities together including: swimming, volleyball, and silent football along with a prayer service, quiet time, and a liturgy. Everyone agreed that after the weekends, there was an increased sense of unity within the Class of '76.

The Daisy Maes finally got a chance to catch their Li'l Abners. Marryin' Sam was there with a grin on his face and a pile of marriage certificates. Denim overalls, checkered shirts, high topped boots and straw hats were whirling around to the music of the Castaways. A main attraction was getting pictures taken on the haystack in front of the barn.
This was how it was on October 31 at Marian Hall for the 1975 Sadie Hawkins, thanks to the planning of Lyn Wittsack and others.
In the students' minds it was a successful dance, for many couples went home hitched that night.

60 ... ready ... set... hut one, hut two, hut three,... the football is hiked as the well trained Co-Stars go crashing into their 300 pound opponents. Excelling in many aspects of the game and polishing up others, the Varsity football team participated in their most successful season.
Finishing the season with three victories demonstrated the Co-Stars' improvement as a team. Offensive quickness and a determined defense were combined together for the first conference wins in varsity football. Co-captain Mike Merrigan and lineman Mickey Bussen were named All Conference. Dan Fashant received Honorable Mention. Other leading seniors were Co-captain Mike Kallas, Dave Ban-gasser, Brad Ruff, Jack Eichler, and Joe Matthews.

“When an evaluator comes in to observe our class, just act natural- or rather, don't act natural." That was a familiar comment made by the teachers to their classes concerning the North Central Evaluation. Last year the AHA teachers made an overall evaluation of the school, deciding purposes and goals for each program. This year in October, thirty teachers from various schools talked to students, listened to parents, and observed classes to make comments and recommendations about the purposes and the ways the goals were being carried out. Credit should be given to Mr. Walsh, faculty coordinator, whose preparation and hard work for the North Central Evaluation helped to make it a success.

102Girls' Tennis Team, How's Your Love Life?
AHA's first girls' tennis team had lots of love in their life during their first season. Unfortunately, in tennis terms this isn't as good as it sounds. The team had a tough schedule playing against teams from the Lake Conference. Although the inexperienced Co-Stars won a few individual matches, there weren't quite enough to allow for a team victory.
Only losing two seniors, Cathy Saleck and Mary Besch, Coach Peterson is hoping for a stronger team, an easier schedule (and a little less love!) next year.

Story Theater, presented November 14, 15, and 16 at Holy Angels, brought to life many of the fairy tales and fables we grew up with. The play was accompanied by original music written by Steve Bresnahan, Holy Angels' Choral Director.

Future Stars Show up in Frosh and B-Squad Football
Led by that noble cowboy, Mr. Wes-trum, and his able assistant, Mr. Barbeau, the frosh football team compiled a 5-2 record. After losing their first game, they won four straight and five of their last six to finish the season on a strong, positive note. Strong individual performances were turned in by Jim Clancy, Tom Lynch, and Dave Russ.
Also enjoying a successful season was the B-Squad. Playing a full slate of games against strong opponents. Mr. Scanlon coached them to a 5-1 record. Outstanding performers were Steve Weeres, Chris Larson, and Dave Lasecke.

107Something very strange is always going on at Holy Angels. It's called academics-better known as "plain old classes." The strange thing is that Holy Angels' classes are not at all plain! Throughout the year varied and exciting events are taking place in the classrooms.
Who can forget the thrill of teaching a rat to run through a complex maze? And the stench of the third floor where the rats were kept!
Remember the day an aspiring young chemist almost blew up the chemistry lab? Mr. Ethen really got a bang out of that, literally!
And what were those horrible grunts and blood-curdling screams coming from the wrestling room? Merely the judo class taking their twice weekly beating!

109110If you're so inclined, your days could be filled with woodworking, jewelry making, or sewing. For those of us not artistically talented, there are Languages, Shakespeare, Home Ec, and Business classes to fulfill other talents. Courses, though, are not limited to the classroom, as numerous field trips to the planetarium, Guthrie Theatre, Children's Theatre. Woodlake Nature Center and other places are used to supplement the textbooks. Students are encouraged to participate in the Christian Service program and there is also a Vo-Tech program offered where students attend classes at Holy Angels in the morning and classes at the Hennepin County Technical Vocational School in the afternoon.

IllService With a Smile
Frustrations of teaching a retarded child to tie a shoe... being rejected by kids who would not accept help.. .fear of not knowing what to say to an elderly person. These were all feelings, at one time, of the students in the service program. After hours of explaining, continuous smiling, and always responding, the service people felt they were beginning to accomplish something. Watching a retarded child tie his shoe, being clapped for upon entering the classroom, and making an elderly person laugh-these were the experiences that they remember and the experiences that make more people want to take part in service.
Christmas was an important time for service workers. With the help from the entire student body, Christmas was a happier time for the elderly and the children of St. Stephen's School who experienced the joy of giving.

114Co-Stars Played 'Em Close
Close scores and exciting games were the highlights of the boys' Varsity Basketball season. With nine wins the team proved to be tough competition in the Don Bosco Conference. This was the year for broken records and new team records. Mike Meyer broke the school records in both season and career total points. Team records set were in fewest points allowed, total points, and most wins. Led by co-captains Joe Matthews and Mike Meyer, the team became the "winningest" ever in Varsity Basketball.

115An Afternoon of Children's Plays
This year many children had a much merrier Christmas, thanks to the happy entertainment provided by "An Afternoon of Children's Plays”, on December 13 and 14. The fun was directed by Mr. Dexter Westrum. In "Santa and the Efficiency Expert", an all-star faculty cast portrays the problems resulting from the modernization of Santa's workshop. In "Christmas in Animal City", written by Tim Rose, Mrs. Goose causes problems when she spends Christmas with her cousin Poopsie. In 'The Elves and the Shoemaker", Johann the

Far from being just a stuffy, pompous group of bores, the AHA speech team sparkles with wit and good humor. And why not? These young orators are led in spirit by their coach, that merry jester just in from ridin' the range, Mr. Westrum.
By participating in almost all of the eleven events available, the team garnered enough ribbons and trophies to make any school proud of them.
When not busy competing against other schools as a team, the speakers are involved in winning contests offered by groups such as the VFW and the Optimist Club. When one individual really shines in a contest, the whole team glows with pride.
It's that pride in each other that made the speech team so unified, and most importantly, so much fun!

117We've Come A Long Way
Have you ever wondered what it would be like living in 1776? Well, even if you haven't. Clyde Co-Star and Angie Angel did. They traced their ancestors back to Bessie Bicentennial and Emie England. After complaining about having to get up at 7:00 A.M. to catch the bus waiting for them. Clyde and Angie discovered that if Ernie and Bessie got to school at all. they had to walk many miles through drifted snow. After going to school until he was sixteen. Ernie began an apprenticeship with a local shoemaker, while Bessie continued going to dame school learning the profession of homemaking. Education was solely based on the reading and understanding of the Bible. After four years of school at AHA. Clyde and Angie go on to college or a Vo-Tec school. High school today is often a preparation for college.
(Opposite Page) Top Left: This apprentice could have shown the woodworking class a thing or two. Top Right: Spinning yarn was one of the many "subject!" taught at dame school. Bottom Right: A colonial school. (This Page) Top Left: One of the paths that Ernie and Bessie may have trudged through many a time on their way to school. Top Right: At least the colonists never ran out of gas. Bottom: School is still hard no matter what century you're in.Clyde and Angie also found they have different free time activities from Ernie and Bessie. While our typical AHA students might have to work fifteen to twenty hours a week waitressing or carrying out groceries, Bessie and Ernie used practically all their free time working at home.. .plowing the back forty.. .making candles.. .planting orchards... killing buffalo.. .hunting beavers. Clyde and Angie spend the rest of their free time participating in sports.. .cheering on their favorite team.. .acting in school plays. . .watching TV.
120When lunch time rolls around, which is about 10:30 A.M. at AHA. Clyde and Angie run into the commons and pay 55fifor a typical Holy Angels lunch consisting of hotdogs, baked beans, potato chips and milk. For Ernie and Bessie, lunch wasn't as close. They had to come trudging in from the fields to eat. Their lunches were usually like ours in quantity, but not quality. They ate boiled puddings, melted butter sauce, a greasy pastry called pie that was never sufficiently baked, and smoked meats.
After the game it's snack time for Clyde and Angie. They cruise on over to Mac and Don's for hamburgers, french fries and cokes.
An after planting-the-orchards snack for Ernie and Bessie was a tasty combination of sour bread and tea.

Center Right: I’d take McDonalds any doy ovor sour bread and tea.
121Clyde and Angie have a dress-up day at school. What should they wear? Searching through her closet Angie decides on her new jean skirt, platform shoes and a pullover sweater. Clyde passes up the brown doubleknits and goes with the blue cords and lumberjack shirt. Both Clyde and Angie like the casual look rather than the colonial styles that Ernie and Bessie wore.
Bessie wore the typical colonial clothes, a long dress with puffed sleeves, over a whalebone corset, bustle and hoop. Bessie also wore her hair mounted on her head or tied back with curls.
Ernie wore the all-famous knickers, knee highs and muslin shirt.
After all these comparisions, Clyde and Angie are glad to be living now and to have had the chance to view the style of living 200 years ago.

Dedicated enough to work long hours into the night finishing things up to meet the next day's deadline.
Dedicated enough to rewrite and rewrite and rewrite and rewrite copy to make it creative enough for Sr. Susan Blecha.
Dedicated enough to rework layouts till they balance.
Dedicated enough to take outside photographs of our school in 20 below weather. (Brrrrr)
Dedicated enough to crop picture after picture to make them fit in the right spot the right way.
And what do we have to show for those long hours of hard work? Your Yearbook.
124On the evening of December 18, 1975, Holy Angels' first school band was the highlight of this year's Christmas Concert. Ann Licater, Lisa Erding, and Erin Dunn, members of the new band, played a flute solo from the NUTCRACKER SUITE. The four choruses-Senior Women's, Junior Women's, Mixed Chorus, and the Academy Singers sang selected Christmas carols. Toward the close of the program, the audience was invited to sing along.
Thanks to the combined efforts of Mr. Armstrong, our band leader, Mr. Bresnahan, the choral director, and the 190 choral and band students, the Christmas Bells Concert was a success.

126Competition Toughens For Girls
Through great expectations, tough opposition and the uphill climb of repeating their 1975 title, the Girls' Varsity Basketball Team completed its season with a satisfying 10-7 record. Finishing third in what may be the best conference in state, the Co-stars' toughest losses were to Benilde-St. Margaret's and Regina. The team suffered its final loss in a battle to Marshall-University in the District 17A championship game. Coach Cindy Peterson anticipates a victorious season next year even though the team will lose three starting seniors, Mary Jo And-ing, Marysue Lovett, and Jullene Zilka.

127Stars in Their Eyes
Long gowns, corsages, nervous people, and first time dates were all part of the excitement of Angelas 75. The Thunderbird Motel, December 28. was a place for couples to attempt the "Hustle" and other new dances. Music was provided by the band "Jasper," while students and chaperones created the spirit. Angelus left many pleasant memories for all who attended.

128New Friends And New Horizons
Unity is an important part of AHA life. This is achieved with the help of class Masses. The Mass and brunch are planned by students with help from faculty and parents. Under the theme of friendship, the Freshmen celebrated their first class Mass on December 7. They brought together family and new friends to strengthen their class unity. The Seniors chose the theme "New Horizons" for their Mass on February 8. The Seniors reflected on the past and look towards the future.

130FUND-Filled Special Events
What would a year at Holy Angels be without special events? Fund-raisers seem to abound, but whatever the purpose, all the activities bring people together and provide enjoyment besides. This year we had both the Traditional Pancake Breakfast and the Marathon for Non-Public Education. A special alumni and parent luncheon. Angels and Anthonie's Style Show, was a new attraction. Another activity was sponsored by the International Club. They enjoyed a dinner of various foods as a FUN-raiser.
Success-Another Word for Co-Star Hockey
With a second place finish in the conference, the hockey team enjoyed the best boys' varsity season ever. The team had a never-give-up spirit. This spirit was evident all season long, especially in the last game of the season against Golden Valley when we scored with only one second left in the game. The seniors who have been on the team for four years and helped develop the hockey program are Dave Bangasser, Frank Pikala, Tom Crowley, Dan Fashant, Tim Scanlon, Steve Hylden, Paul Belvedere, Greg Lack-ens, and Joe Zieska.
Although they didn't win many games, the 'B' squad hockey team gained lots of experience this past season. Playing a schedule of strong opponents, the team also had to battle unpredictable weather. Practice was sometimes held in -15° weather and other times cancelled due to wet mush. This year's team was led by Juniors Tom Mercer, Bob Strawman, and Mark Tully.

132133Frosh and B-Squad Basketball Teams Shine Bright
Win! That was what the Co-Star 8-squad basketball team did this year. With their fantastic 20-0 record, the first undefeated season in AHA history, the team shows great promise for next season. With the help of their coach, Mr. Bar-beau, the 8-squad showed what raw talent Holy Angels has. Players Rick Rodier and Jim DeRoma contributed much with continuous high scoring. By the end of the season, taking their victories in stride, the team still had a few close calls a-gainst other strong teams, but as usual, they came out ahead. Way to go guys!
The Co-Star Freshmen basketball team got the feeling of victory and defeat this season with their 10-7 record. Throughout the season they played tough games against Cretin, St. Thomas, and Richfield among others. Out of the seven games that were lost, five were lost by eight points or less. Led by their practice-happy coach, Mr. Matheson, they received the victories for which they worked so hard. The Frosh team will be the team to beat in the future.

Next year AHA will suffer a loss both in leadership and companionship. Our co-principal. Sister Katherine Egan, will be leaving us to complete her PhD in Educational Administration at Syracuse University in New York. Because she believed in Holy Angels, Sister Katherine was crucial in keeping the school going in the years from 1969 to 1972, when so many other schools were closing. With the help of Father Cassidy, she organized and supervised the New Dimension Fund Drive which raised $150,000 to keep the school in existence, and she made the transition to Co-Education in 1972. Thanks, Sister, for fourteen years of very special caring.
.. .NO MOTHER TO GUIDE HER.. .hamming it up in Concert Band.. .talent shows at AHA.. .singing in the can. . .CELEBRATION. . ."Only Your Love Can Stand a Chance".. .These are just some of the memories of Jeff Elsen which touched peoples' lives here at Holy Angels. On October 2 Jeff ('75) passed away, but he had become something special in many of our lives. Even those who only knew him by his distinctive voice in the chorus were moved by his talents and share in the beautiful memories he left behind.
136We have three special students at Holy Angels this year, Cathy, Rick and Chris Parish. Cathy will graduate with the class of 76, Rick is a junior, and Chris is a member of the freshman class. Their father, who is a professor in Wales, is a visiting professor at the University of Minnesota. They came here in August of 1975 and since then have made many new friends here in Minneapolis. They are enjoying our dimate with all its snow, but are also spending some time traveling to both the East amd West coast to visit some landmarks of our country. They will be sad to leave here in August of 1976 but there will be many more people here who will be sorry to see them leave. They have taught us a lot about their country as well as sharing a part of themselves and leaving us many memories of this special year.
Breta Hylden, a member of Holy Angels' junior class, is living in Rhein, West Germany, this year on a student exchange program called Youth For Understanding. She is staying with the Shostock family who have four children, one Breta's age who is living in Ohio this year on the same program. New activities which Breta is enjoying include dancing lessons, knitting, bike riding, and she's also taking Latin in her new school.

139Grapplers On The Move
Finishing a successful season with a 6-6 record, the wrestling team showed yeat improvement over previous years. Working hard for every takedown, breakdown, and pin proved worthwhile as four AHA wrestlers placed in the District 17A tournament Mike Hutchens. Brad Ruff, and Tony Matfirak all took fifth place in their own weight division. Dan Couillard, who placed second, qualified for the Region 5A tournament. The Co-Star wrestling team will miss seniors Brad Ruff and Dan Couillard. Coaches Steve Ethen and assistant Mike Don-lin say the future looks bright for the AHA grapplers.

For the first time since '72, the girls refused to speak to the guys. Were they angry? Jealous? No Way! It was Hush Button Day, one of the many activities of Snow Days, January 26 30.
Each day provided its own special "out of uniform" activity. Monday and Tuesday were Class Color Days, followed by Dress Up Day. Occupa-tion Career Day, and Friday was Blue-gold Day, equipped with a Pep Fest.
Meanwhile, out in the snow, many participated in Tug of War and Boot Hockey, the seniors being the dominant winners in both events. Freshman Keith Finnelly slushed by a pack of 14 to win the Cross-country Ski Race, and Kevin Merrigan was crowned Mr. Irresistible. The week concluded with an informal dance at St. Richard's.

Everybody is a star on the girls' JV basketball team. This was the philosophy of the coach, Ms. DeVaan, and under her leadership at times there was more laughter than basketball. The girls grew as a team, and team effort brought them a hard-fought 7-6 record.

Hub Center Richfield, MinnesotaWe Thank Our Lucky Stars
After working for hours preparing to meet a deadline, we often " saw stars". These stars slowly turned into the pages of our yearbook, reflecting the hard work and efforts of many people. We are especially referring to: our staff, who never quit; school photographers, Lisa Boulay, Tom Duritsa, Tony Carlisle, and Ms. Stewart; out-of-school photographer, Mary Clubb; Ted Smits, from Herff Jones Publishing Company; Dan Novak of Gene Garrett Studio. Most of all our thanks go to Sister Susan Blecha, our advisor, who had patience and energy enough to always keep us going. Our book would never have been completed without the many hours that these generous people contributed.
