Text from Pages 1 - 160 of the 1986 volume:

You Had To Be There As we look back to the very first day of our school years, it brings forth fond memories. We reminisce about the time gone by and the highlights of the years. Now we focus our attention to the highlights of the 1985-86 school year' when YOU HAD TO BE THERE. To start the year, the marching band had an exceptional season as they carried themselves to state competition with their many talents and hard work. A big thanks to Mr. McDowell for all his hard-work and dedication throughout the past years. The Volleyball team also had a superb season. With a record of 20-4, Coach Morgan worked her girls long and hard, but it was all worth it. 1985-86 was also a great year for the concert band and choir. Both groups received I's at district competition which qualified both groups for state competition where they also received straight I's. Congratulations. There are many other outstanding events that took place throughout the year that it is hard to account for all of them, but the most important event that took place was the Graduation of 56 seniors. The day began in a hurry. The seniors awoke to the gleeming eyes of their closest relatives. Preparations for the big day were beginning. As the temperature rose, so did the joy and saddness shared by all who were involved. Then the moment arrived when each student rose and awaited the sound of his or her name to be called. As each student walked up the ramp to receive his diploma, cameras flashed and joyous cries were released along with a sigh of relief by each parent to finally see their children as young adults. I guess the old addage is true YOU HAD TO BE THERE. We hope you will enjoy this yearbook and look back upon the pages to remember the year that was shared by all. Again we would like to thank the yearbook for all their hard work and dedication. Theme 34'he Best of '86 Yoshifumi Yamamoto, otherwise known to Ada High School as KC is from Nora, Japan. It is a very historic city, he says. There are many temples and many foreigners visit my city. He respects both of his parents as well as his grandfather, who means alot to him. Two brothers round out his family. KC plays all types of sports back home, such as volleyball, baseball, soccer and ping-pong. His favorite classes include: chemistry, typing, and calculus. KC's favorite teachers are Mr. Lusk, Mr. Hay and Mr. Me For-land. Hamburgers, fried chicken and corn are his favorite American foods, and his favorite place back home is — home. Marleen Hogeboom, too, is a new face at Ada, she is from Oos-terbeck, Holland. When asked about her first impression of the U.S., Marleen paused for a moment then replied, The number of cars at the airport. She says the U.S. is different from Holland in many ways, including school. In Holland they have no homework, no lockers, and no individual desks. Marleen's favorite class at Ada is Art Crafts, and her favorite teacher is Mrs. Sleeseman. Her favorite foods include pizza and french fries. When asked to sum up her outlook of the U.S. in one sentence, she replied, I think America is nice country, but if you are young, you can live better in Holland. Philip S.

SADIE HAWKINS GOES HAWAIIAN This year the Sadie Hawkins Dance was held on January 10, 1985. The Seniors had a new theme for the dance and went Hawaiian! The dance was held in the Multi-Purpose Room with sounds from the System and decoration straight from Old MacDonalds farm. Attendance was not limited to couples. The shyer girls could go with friends and hope to meet the man of their dreams. Many of the slow dances were fittingly, ladies choice, but the guys had a chance to make their preferences known, as well. On the whole, everyone who attended had a wonderful time. Phil, whot ore you doing? Learning to count at last? Steph, was the Hulo too much to handle? Sadie Hawkins 21Ada's West Side Story is a musical tale about kids of the street, rumbles, teen-age love, the outer and inner limits of city turfs, realism social significance and a segment of American life — young people set in a time and place with none of them understanding what's happening to them. West Side Story is all that and more. A modern-day version of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet that does not paraphrase the Elizabethan account, but rather utilizes it as a reference point. The atmosphere is stark, the ending tragic, but it has romance, humor, dance sequences and a collaboration that represents, spectacularly, the lively art of the American musical theater. The show opened Friday, April 11 at 8 p.m. and continued Saturday, April 12, at the same time. The costumes and the stage setting were designed by the directors, Lynn Knoble and Dean McDowell. The costumes used in West Side Story were designed by Mrs. Knoble. She researched the story itself set in the late 1950's, studied Action (Kevin) and Anybodys (LeAnn) discuss her loyalty. Middle: The Jets make their plans. West Side books showing styles of the times, and viewed pictures from West Side Story performed on Broadway in 1957, fhe remake of 1980, and the 1962 movie version. Costumes were found in attics of cast members and their families. Some came from the Music department collection made over the past eight years. Period costumes, such as the '50's-style prom dresses, were rented. The stage setting for West Side Story is the creation of teacher Dean McDowell. He designed the entire set. His ideas came, he said, from seeing different productions of the musical and looking at pictures from other productions. McDowell said, I had to adapt ideas to fit our small stage area. Mr. McDowell designed two revolving turntables. They were built on stage and revolved to make a scene change. He added, They open up so they can be used three ways — inside, front side and back side. Mr. McDowell planned the lighting design, coordinating the colors and making the decisions when and where to use light. Story The 16-piece orchestra plays an important role in the musical. Director Dean McDowell said, West Side Story is known in the theatrical world as one of the most difficult musical scores written for a Broadway-type musical. Because of the difficulty, professional musicians from Lima Symphony, Ohio Northern University, Bluffton College and Bluffton High School were added to Ada High School instrumentalists. Accompanist was Megan Shult. 22 MusicalMusical 23The Jets help Action (Kevin) to become o Cindy helps Estello (Rachel) with make-up. better person.

Members of the Junior class held a dance and sold magazines to raise money for this tribute to the Senior class. The early part of the day was spent decorating and then the fun began. Couples danced far into the night to the sounds of The System. After prom was held in McIntosh Center as well and ran into the early morning hours. 28 PromProm 29Outstanding Seniors The third annual Senior Awards Banquet was held to recognize the top academic Scholars from the High School.

Varsity Basketball 7374 Girls Boys J.V. and Freshmen BasketballHARD WORK AND HARD LUCK The 1985-86 J.V. Basketball team got off to a slow start losing 8 of their first 11 games. However, the young team won 6 of their final 9 games with big wins over Van Buren, Kenton, Hardin Northern, and Delphos. Coach Baker said, I knew we might get off to a slow start due to our lack of experience and youth. We started 3 freshmen all season! The whole team grew up a great deal during the last half of the season. I felt we eally found out how to compete and acquire what it takes to win basketball games. During the season the future bulldogs also won 2 overtime games against McComb and Paulding. The overtime victory over McComb came right after the team was 3-8. The class seemed to give the team an added boost of confidence to finish the season strong. The Junior Varsity Girl's Basketball team finished their season with a 3-17 record overall, and 2-7 record in the league. This does not exemplify the progress made throughout the season. The girls had a strong desire to work and improve, and never gave up. Highlights of the season included wins over Spencerville, Columbus Grove, and Miller City. The J.V. Girls were coahced by Karen McConnell. With a final record of 5-8, the freshmen guys whipped Bluffton, twice, and triumphed over U.S.V., Allen East, and Parkway, during their tough season. Hardin-Northern beat our mighty dogs by only a single point each game, and all their other games were very close calls. Becky Ramsey goes up for the shot. Andreo Campoli shows her Freshman spirit.

Under the direction of coach Charles Hawkins, the eighth grade team came out of the season very strong and ready to begin their freshmen year in basketball. The Jr. High Girls Basketball teams were again coached by Tim Buscher and Lori Klingler this year. These young players learned basic skills and rules of the game to help in achieving a successful season. 76 Jr. High Boys Girls BasketballAt left: Opponent attempts to block Nick Wolfe's pass.

They once again stole the show at the Hardin County Fair Cheerleading Competition, with the Varsity winning first place for the third year in a row and the JV putting on an excellent routine themselves. More of a family than a group of cheerleaders, these girls went the extra mile to be the best of friends. This was obvious in their performances, shown by their special ability to work together well as a team. Captain of the Varsity squad was senior Lisa Smith. Co-captains of the JV squad were Chrissi Sanders and Coleen Griffin. Freshman captain was Chris Manley and 7th and 8th grade captains were Melissa Williams and Sarah West respectively. Perfection was the girls' goal as was evident in their cheers and routines. The 1985-86 squads worked hard and displayed great school spirit. Win or lose, they supported the teams and never stopped believing in them. Cheerleaders 79Tennis Trouble The 1986 Varsity Tennis Team, coached by ONU student Diane Wartman had somewhat of a difficult season. With a final record of 1-8 Ada had a 4-1 victory over Paulding.

The boy's team led by seniors Rob Shields, Todd Klingler, Jerry Saltz-man, Marc Staley and John Am-burgey showed much accomplishment and hard work. Led by seniors Linda Counts, Heather Saffell and Chris Minich the girls track team was short on numbers and high on injuries. Despite this the girls managed to ac- complish many personal goals. The girl's placed eighth in the conference with three girls participating in the regional meet. Senior Chris Minich, Discus, Senior Heather Saffell, 3200m run and Junior Sue Stahl, 200m dash.

The bus drivers, always up early in the morning to go out on their routes and pick up the students. They manage to make it through the good and bad days. No matter what, they're always there. The cooks are constantly busy stiring up tasty meals for lunch. As we go down the halls before noon we can always smell the aroma of different foods from the cafeteria. If you peak in before lunch you might see them scurrying around, but you can always count on smiles. The custodians are usually somewhere around to help us get into those locked doors or clean up something that we may have spilled. They may often be hard to find, but you have to say they do a pretty good job. Willing Top Right. Mr. Music sits and relaxes.
