Text from Pages 1 - 224 of the 1978 volume:

 An effective yeerbook tries to present the story of the school year in one of two ways. It can be organized by an artistic design or by a theme that is carried throughout the book. We chose to follow the theme approach by using movies and movie titles to represent the different sections of the annual. But just a theme can't make a yearbook lasting. . .it takes a lot of hard work from many people. First and foremost, thanks go to the 1978Annual Staff who contributed both their time and talents to create this book. Also, thanks go to the staff photographers: Linda Bischoff, David Woodruff, Kory Krofft, and Stephanie Pitts. A very special thank you to Mrs. Lindabury, our advisor, whose efforts were "above and beyond the call of duty." Her creativity added a great deal to the "spice" of our book. Brett Vottero was our Head Photographer and Business Manager, he deserves a special thanks also. The Staff's gratitude goes out to Mrs. Arlington and the Ada Herald, Steve White and Tom Keis, our Taylor Representatives, Powell Studios, Paul Weimer and Cathi Naylor for their artwork, Bruce Elliott for his assistance in almost every aspect of the production of this yearbook, and thanks to all the businesses who bought Ads. But most of all, thanks to YOU.

Ada not only gained area honors but also we earned the ultimate award and realized the American Dream; we became State Class A Girl’s Basketball Champs. Although each sport requires different physical and mental abilities, ail sports demand of the participant dedication and self-discipline. Through dedication and self-discipline, athletics gives the competitor a feeling of self-esteem and accomplishment. And for no other reason than this, sports are magnificent.Senior Cheerleaders Reminisce 1) (left to right) from top—Juli Lawrence, Amy Allen, Sandy Wagner, Anita Hopson, Lori Simon, LuAnn Wyss 2) Sandy Wagner, cheerleader for five years. “I can remember camp my senior year...having water fights when we were so hot...'Swimming' at Juli’s house (wearing our “birthday-suits”) at 2:00 in the morning, playing ‘I dare you.’ The lights suddenly flashed on and there stood Juli’s mother! ...She never did find out what was going on. Surprise, Mrs. Lawrence!...being with my friends on the squad and cheering for the “Mighty Bulldogs” (especially Jeff), were the reasons why I enjoyed cheering.” 3) Amy Allen, a cheerleader for six years. “...Spending time with each other, meeting new people, slumber parties were my most memorable moments in cheerleading— especially cheering at the Regionals. There were so many people there—I got such a good feeling just being a part of it...I am proud to say I was a cheerleader for Ada." 4) Juli Lawrence, cheerleader for six years. “...Tryouts, mounts, and swimming at 2:00 a.m. were my favorite moments while cheerleading.. .Cheerleading is a lot of work, but a lot of fun...It teaches how to get up in front of a crowd, being able to communicate and get along with others...It’s the best way to go through school.” 5) Anita Hopson—“I’ve been a cheerleader for as long as I can remember! Going to camp and riding on the fire engines were so much fun. I enjoyed cheering because I'm representing something special...I’m really going to miss it...” 6) Captain Amy Allen and advisor Norla Strasbaugh. Junior High Squads Mindy Berger and Camille Runser were chosen by their fellow cheerleaders to be captains of their respective squads during the 77-78 school year.

In the conference, they ended with a 6-1-1 record, the only team able to defeat the conference champion, Paulding Coach Wise, previously a coach at the College of Wooster and the University of Toledo, quotes on the past season: “Looking back over our progress, I sincerely feel that we came a long, long way ... The players worked hard and accepted changes with an eager attitude. They conditioned hard, improved their skills, and came together as a football family. All of these things added together, plus our lack of key injuries, and outstanding play by a large number of players, resulted in our very successful season." In the NWC, five players were selected to the first team, one to the second team, and five gained honorable mention. Overall, the season was very successful and everyone at Ada High can be proud of both a fine team and fine coaches. 1) Coach Jeff Wise 2) The 1977 Bulldog team: Row 1—Dennis Tabor, Gary Hall, Greg Campbell, Jim Montgomery, Mike Stahl, Jon Fields, Dwight McBride, Kurt Massillo, Bob Zimmerman, Tom Simmons, Jeff Acheson Row 2—Scott Walls, Jeff Long, Jon Busch, David Allen, Tony Castle, Jeff Hood, Steve Castle, Mark McBride, Chuck Castle, Bryan Moore, Dan Norberg, Doug Elliott, Greg Criblez Row 3—Don Stobbe, Ken Fleming, Lane Chaney, Layne Moore, Barry Musselman, Dan Tabor, Chris Binkley, Craig Roberson, Bruce Price, Gregg Davis, Jeff Bischoff Row 4—Stuart Brown, Mark Reichert, Mark Blevins, Jeff Criblez, Stan Parshall, Mike Simon, Lon Chaney, Gregg Ballard, Gary Smith, Tim Hubbell, Eric Wolber.(1) “I told you the field was THAT way!!

This year was a “rebuilding year” for the golf team Even though our golfers didn’t win the conference title, they gained much valuable experience. They also broke Bluffton’s 33 match win string and one player.

Dave was honored at the fall sports banquet held in October by members of the team. 1) Kevin Fitzpatrick, manager of the team, had been with the team for four years. He remembered the State CC meet that Ada ran in 75 and winning the NWC trophy the same year He also recalls putting away all of the uniforms at the end of the season and at the same time readying for basketball. Amid all of the hectic events, Kevin feels that it was worth it. 2) Displaying their natural ability to clown around are, from the left, Jeff “Twink” McBride and Dan Schumacher.

(Which can be left to the imagination!) 3) Captain, Dave, enjoyed his years running CC—not necessarily running, but having a good time while keeping in shape. Dave recalls decorating the opposing teams’ buses with left-over doughnuts and shopping in Columbus after the state meet. (Especially at the sporting goods store!) “We didn’t always have fun...there was a lot of hard work and preparation for every meet...I really enjoyed being a part of the team.”CC Still County’s Best At Ada High, Cross Country was another sport that remained successful. Under the direction of new coach. Ted Prueter, the team finished out the season with an 8-3 record. Among their accomplishments, the team repeated last year’s efforts by winning the Hardin County title. They gained second place in the NWC race, losing to Spencerville by five points, and again won second place in the Sectionals. In district. Ada failed to qualify for State, but junior, Neal Dombusch, “almost made it,” failing to qualify to run at State by one place. After losing many runners to basketball conditioning, these boys pulled through and made the cross country program a great asset to our school and town. (1) The 1977 CC Team: kneeling—Dave Haight.

Among these were the athletes on the boys’ varsity basketball team. Coach Fries quotes: “The Boys Varsity Basketball Team had another fine year, losing only three games by a total of five points. The Bulldogs had an over-all record of 18-3 and were Northwest Conference Champs for the third straight year. They were rated number 1 by both the Lima News and the Brookville Star at the end of the regular season in their area ratings. In addition, the ’Dogs were rated tenth in the state in the final UPI poll. The Bulldogs also won the Sectional title with wins over Waynesfield and Spen-cerville but lost a very close game to New Bremen in the District tournaments.’’ At the winter sports banquet, honors went to the basketball teams. All of the Bulldog teams won championships or were runners-up in the league, including the seventh, eighth, ninth, boys JV and Varsity, and girls JV and Varsity. The boys varsity was awarded a trophy by the Brookv ille Star for its No. 1 rating.

He was All NWC and All District 8 two years in a row. Lee received state recognition and played in the District 8 All-Star game. Probably the greatest individual honor Lee received was being selected by the coaches to play in the North-South Class A-AA All-Star game at Canton. This is one of the greatest individual honors a class A player can receive. Lee was Captain and Co-MVP for the team this year, sharing the MVP award with junior Doug Fries. Lee was also MVP his junior year...When it comes to basketball. Lee Hood has certainly made his mark." 2) Mark Reichert, third year letterman. “had a very fine career at Ada High School.

When the boys always called Elmer Inman “Elmer’s Glue.” ....When Debbie Rayl was holding Susan Dodge’s mittens, in the bathroom. Debbie told Susan to catch. When she threw one over the door, Susan missed and it landed in the toilet. ... When Kathi Zimmerly threw Brett Vottero’s ring in a mud puddle because she did not like him anymore. ...When Keith, Kyle, Randy, and Lane all got their heads shaved. ...When we played “Smash-em“ and David Woodruff was the unanimous choice for piling on.
