everv day during the summer and a few afternoons every week. No one could hold a job because we had to spend so much time practicing, baking cookies, and organizing ral- lies. " commented Junior yell leader Jennifer Libby. The cheerleaders baked cakes, put on dinners, TP ' d team mem- bers ' houses, and delivered doughnuts to players on game days. " The cheerleaders did a lot of things for our team and helped keep up our morale off the field, " commented varsity football player Tom Souza. Some players thought that having cheerleaders at the games helped their perfor- mances. Junior varsity basket- ball player John Waite commented, " When the cheer- leaders were cheering for us, we got enthusiastic about the game and played our best. " Being a spirit leader took hard work and dedication. Hours of rehearsal went into each performance. Junior ma- jorette Marie Saylor com- mented, " Most people didn ' t realize all the hard work that went into each routine. The five of us have all taken years of lessons to get where we are; it shows that twirling isn ' t as easy as it looks. " Next time you watch a half-time perfor- mance, or see a cheerleader braving the fierce winter cold, clad only in her short skirt and top, think of the work and dedication that go into being a spirit leader. 2 Sign language. IV. yell leaders Terri Davis and Kara Ascarrunz look across the field for the rest of their squad. During a halftime show, the IV. and freshman squads carried letter shields ii front of the band. Starting stretch, junior pom-pon girl Amy Loughran stretches before doing her halftime routine. Because of the splits and jumps performances involved, all of the spirit leaders had to limber up before beginning. Rooters on wheels. Smiling at the crowd, Molly Carr and the rest of the varsity spirit leaders circle the track before the Homecoming game. Molly and Caroline Rustigian were head spirit leaders and had to organize all of the cheerleaders ' activities. Dress rehearsal. ).V. yell leader Annie Miller practices a rally cheer during third period P.E. In keeping with the rally ' s ski tog theme, Annie wore her ski boots to school.

Sky hook. With outstanding form, |ohn Cappa turns and shoots 1 5 feet from the basket. The hook shot was probably the most difficult in basketball. Gutsy catch. Relaxing before big meets, cross country members frequently could be found playing frisbee. Geoff Parker takes a small upward leap and sandwiches the trisbee between his One on None Awaited forehand. While warming up for a tennis match, Kevin Lynch awaits ; rebound from the backboard. When students were unable to find opponents they frequently made use of the backboard. " But I don ' t want to go see, ' The Black Hole. ' " " Why not? Just come. I don ' t want to go alone. " " Can ' t you do anything on your own? " " What about you? Did you go out for football Tuesday? " " No. " " Why not? " " I haven ' t got the time. " " More like you couldn ' t hack it. " " No. I just like doing things on my own. " For many, the need to do things on their own led them away from group activities. People went to the movies in groups, out to pizza in groups and even out for sports in groups. What about the people at school who didn ' t want to join the team just to play the sport that they enjoyed? For Jack Chauvin, that free- dom meant fishing at the Res- ervoir. " I like ge tting up early, going out on my own and bringing home a few bass be- fore my family ' s even up, " commented Jack. " I ' ve done somthing before other people have even gotten up. " Jay Ryder, whose 57 " height didn ' t guarantee him a spot on the Varsity basketball roster, still enjoyed picking up a ball and shooting. " When my friends are busy, I like to shoot around by myself, " he said. " It ' s about the only way to play without any pressure on you. " Perhaps on a more dan- gerous level, Graham Chaffee enjoyed fencing, a sport not of- fered at school for various sharp reasons. A three-year fencing veteran, Graham in- sisted there was little risk in- volved. " I almost killed my fencing partner once, " he said. " But generally, it really is a safe sport. " Unfortunately, there wasn ' t a scuba diving team at school, so Roxie Gustavson had to do it on her own. " I ' ve been scuba diving for years, " she ex- plained. " It ' s always a lot of fun. " Another popular sport was rollerskating. Susan Daane was one of those who terror- ized the little old ladies on the sidewalks. " I usually go up to Summit Ridge, " she said. " It ' s great exercise. " Regardless of the sport they played, students found that doing them on their own was a refreshing change. 81 INDIVIDUAL SPORTS
