rlil ADA HIGH SCHOOL
When wc. the Senior Class, made our way down the long lonely hallway to the kindergarten classrooms, all eyes were on us. We learned a great deal on that first day. As the days passed, that long, lonely hallway became a warm, friendly place. During play times and recess, we all made many new friends that would be there for the next 12 years. The next six years were filled with many experiences, some painful and some happy. We will always remember green lunch trays and gym sneakers hanging from our desks. When we reached Junior High, many strange discoveries loomed before us, but it was good experience for our high school years.
When we arrived at those High School years, we were met with many new changes. Those once familiar eyes were there, watching and learning with us. In addition, new eyes became involved with scrutinizing our progress through high school. Three
changes in administration and a large faculty turnover brought new observers to the scene. The construction of a controversial gymnasium and the failure of a levy at the Ada polls turned the eyes of the community on the school and its students. Our class perservered.
Then came our long-awaited senior year. Once again, we were greeted with many new changes just as we had become accustomed to the old ways. Without changes, life would become routine, but change had seemed to continually follow us. Once again, those eyes of others were watching and learning along with us.
As we part from the classmates we have known for so long, we will never forget the sad times, the happy times, nor those times when so many others were watching the class of '88. And as we leave this experience to enter the outside world, once again, “All Eyes Are On Us”.

6 Senior FeaturesCartooning “Draws” Doner
Rung Fu Bunny. Razzlefats the Cat. These and other characters appear in the cartoon portfolio of senior Chris Doner. Although the portfolio collection just began in July of 1987. Chris has been drawing cartoons since the seventh grade. His first “publication" appeared in the junior high newspaper here at Ada.
Chris uses a dry sense of humor to attack any and all subject matter. Chris's style is similar to Gary [.arson's "The Far Side", which he greatly admires. Another cartoon favorite of his is “Mother Goose and Grimm" currently syndicated in the Toledo Blade. Puns, or playing on words, is a favorite approach for Chris.
A quiet and introspective individual, Chris agrees that his cartooning is a form for expressing his own wit and humor. He sees his drawings as
a “backward look at life”, a comedic reaction to people and events of the past. Although Chris admits that sharing his work with peers was difficult at first, positive feedback from classmates encouraged him to begin a portfolio. Each entry is titled, signed, and dated.
An avid follower of the Martial Arts. Chris would like to begin formal Ninjulsu training after graduation. Two of the nation’s largest schools for Ninjutsu are here in Ohio, making his plans a possibility. Chris also hopes to continue his education at the college level, looking at art as a major field of study. According to Chris, it is “extremely difficult to break into the cartooning industry.” However, he plans to continue to submit his work in hopes of becoming a published cartoonist.
1987 State Farmer Degree. 1988 Star Chapter Farmer. First in the district and fifth in the state of Ohio in the 1987 land judging competition. State District Vice President for 1987-88, and a pile of more than a dozen trophies. The list of successes for senior FFA member Matt Klinglcr goes on and on.
Currently serving as the president of the Ada FFA Chapter and working on election as the state FFA president, Matt spends a great deal of his time traveling and speaking on agriculture. “There’s money to be made” (in agriculture) according to Klingler. He sees his role as a public relations ambassador ... “always competing against agriculture’s bad image." The best part of his experience has been meeting so many people. A special memory was his participation at the National Convention in Kansas City, Missouri.
Matt’s future includes plans to attend Ohio State, majoring in Soil Science, and farming here in Ada. He is also hoping to participate in a two-month work study program in Australia during the winter of ’88.

A cold and dreary night it was, but even the weather couldn't cover up the magic that was in the air. A parade of cars carrying the 1987 Homecoming Court kicked off the evening’s Homecoming activities. After the parade had wound it’s way through downtown Ada and around the football field, the members of the court were escorted down the field while the High School Band played “Over the Rainbow". It was then announced that the 1987 Homecoming Queen was Amy Curtis.
Following the crowning, the Ada Bulldogs played a hard game yet lost, 0-28, to the Spencerville Bearcats.

Eyes on Music Feast
For the tenth year in a row, the Music Feast, featuring the high school band and choir, the Varsity Singers, the junior high choir and various guests, was a huge success. An a la carte dinner began at 4:30. Dinner entertainment was provided in the multi-purpose room. At 6:30, the Ada High School marching band, under the direction of Matthew Kentner and field commanders Holly Fries and Kristine Hanratty, started the Feast with various selections from their marching season. The band then played the National Anthem and the festivities were under way.
The junior high choir came next, singing three selections. They then combined with the high school choir to perform “Together We Stand", featuring soloists Kevin Moser and Manjula Canagaratna. The high school choir performed four songs, highlighting feature soloist Sarbori Bhattacharya in "Reach the Mountain".
At 7:00, the guest choirs were on. beginning with ONU’s, “Added Attraction”. Also performing were Bluffton's “Soundsation", the River-dale Swing Choir, Bath’s “Voca-laires”, the Marion Harding “Harding Singers” and “The Company”

Christmas Dance 35Winning Words
“The old auditorium with its spectacular window and balcony signs, and its beautiful stage setting seemed to express the enthusiasm of the occasion. This enthusiasm was furthered by appropriate cheers from the different classes.”
The previous quote appeared sixty-four years ago in the 1924 Ada High School Yearbook. While most of the signs and some of the enthusiasm have been lost over the years, the basic premise of Interclass continues. Originated in 1907 by Dr. C. H. Freeman, the purpose of Interclass is to promote good sportsmanship, independence of thought and extensive research on the part of the students.
In this year’s Interclass competition, twelve upperclassmen competed in the areas of short story, essay, dra-
matic reading and poetic reading. Representatives for the sophomore class included Stephanie Dickson, Sharon Guy, James Johnson and Matt Hies-ter. Juniors were Jennifer Pizzuti, Kevin Moser, Holly Fries and Coleen Griffin. The senior class was represented by Peg Gordon, Amy Shroyer, Becky Ramsey and Sarbori Bhatta-charya.
First place honors went to Coleen Griffin (short story), Amy Shroyer (essay). Peg Gordon (poetic reading) and James Johnson (dramatic reading). Over-all first place went to the senior class. Congratulations to all participating students.
James Johnson performs enough magic to snag first place in dramatic reading.

Interclass 37Love Is In The Air ...
Love was in the air at the Valentine’s dance, sponsored by the Student Council. Although there was not a large turnout, those who attended had a great time.
The dance was semi- formal and replaced last year's Beach Party. This year, the Student Council tried some-
thing new — a computer matchup service, provided by Data-Match. Students in grades 7 through 12 were given the opportunity to fill out a questionnaire and within a week discover who were their ten most compatible match-ups in Ada High School. This service provided a great
deal of fun and excitement at the dance, as the results could be purchased at that time.
Many thanks go to the DJ John Rose from 92ZOQ, the chaperones, and the Student Council for giving us the opportunity to dance all night.

Dedication “Yearbook Staff’
After a full year of parties, pizzas, workshops, and WORK, the '87-'88 Yearbook Staff became a close-knit family. Under the direction of third-year editor Amy Shroycr, this staff never missed a deadline, a rare feat in the world of journalism. Their dedication was obvious. Shroyer went on to win the Senior Journalism award presented at the Senior Banquet.
Trying times for the girls included some hectic, last minute deadline rushes, frantic searches for missing material, and a desperate need for camera batteries at the wrong times. Positive moments occurcd when members visited Kenton High School for a journalism workshop in October. For the first time in many years,
ad sales went up and fund-raisers were unnecessary.
All work and no play makes for a grumpy yearbook staff so movies were shown between deadline dales. Favorites included “Dirty Dancing" and "Blind Date". Another favorite pasttime were picture days and "catered" lunches. Losing five seniors, the staff will be young next year. Many members are planning on attending a workshop at Capital University in July to train for the ’89 book. Thanks for a job well-done!

From the All Vocational Camp in July to the National Convention in November to the Small Animals Day in May, the activities of the Future Farmers run year long. This year, as in past years, the Ada FFA completed an award winning schedule. August brought the Alumni Hog Roast, Dairy Day at Wooster and participation in the F M picnic. Major highlights of September included the Hardin County Fair and Landjudging Contests at the Farm Science Review. Competition in Urban soil judging, parliamentary procedure, mechanics and merchandising kept
FFA’ers busy from October through Decembers along with fruit sales.
National FFA Week was celebrated in February. Ada FFA'ers also celebrated their 50th Parent- Member banquet in February. The month of March saw travel to Wilmington, Wilford, and Ohio State University for presentations and judgings. All FFA teams then participated in the State Skill Contests in April. May included landscaping projects and the Food for America Program.
Congratulations to all the members of the Ada Future Farmers for a successful and productive 1987- 88.

Student Council is an organization that lets the students get involved. The Council consists of five seniors, four juniors, three sophomores, three freshmen, two eighth graders, and two seventh graders. They worked together throughout the year to support academic and social involvement.
The Student Council once again sponsored the annual Homecoming festivities with much success. The Council tried to get the school involved by providing two new dances this year. Although the turnout was few in number the holiday spirit was still present.
The Council did not only sponsor
social activities. They helped make the Interclass competition and the Senior Awards Banquet a great success.
To help with all of the activities they provided this year, the Council members sold baked goods and washed many cars. They also sold concessions at every home basketball game and sponsored a Carnation Day for the student body.

This year the band started its marching season with a summer band camp, learning drills and music. The band performed at all of the football games and was invited to participate in various parades and the annual F M Picnic.

The 1987-88 year was a spectacular one for the Varsity Singers. For the first time in Ada High School's history, they earned the opportunity to perform in a national competition! This group, which includes 28 singer-dancers and 5 jazz band members, was one of the 15 groups chosen from over 50 nation-wide applicants to compete in the National Showstop-pers Competition in Chicago. Even though the Varsity Singers were in competition with groups from larger schools, they performed admirably. They missed qualifying for the finals by only 2.6 points, and they impressed the judges and audience with their well-crafted show. Mrs. Knoble also deserves to be applauded for developing such a good group and for making
Ada High School proud.
In addition to Chicago, the Varsity Singers also had the honor of performing at OSU's Scarlet and Gray Show . They also performed shows for the community and for area schools. The group will be losing 10 seniors. Four year members include Sarbori Bhattacharya, Shawn Fisher, and Kevin Rex. Other seniors are: LeAnn Compton, Manjula Canagaratna, Deb West, Todd Robinson, David Rhoades, Dan Click, and Daryl Neff, the accompanist. They gave the last performance of the year at the spring concert where a packed audience gave a standing ovation in recognition of the accomplishments of Mrs. Knoble and the Varsity Singers Jazz Band of 1987-88.

’87- ’88 Leaders in Learning
In many ways, education is a business. The school board and administration serve as our school’s “business executives”, those who make the decisions and keep the business running. Some of these jobs are quite visible, while others are more behind the scenes. Whether the individuals are out front or in the background, their roles in creating a smooth functioning school are indispensable.
The 1987-88 school year saw the efforts of two school boards, an almost entirely new administration, and the return of a competent secretarial staff. Their tireless efforts and concern for the educational process at Ada High School are greatly appreciated.

The slogan for the 1987 Varsity Volleyball team enabled them to set high goals and standards for the season and to maintain spirit throughout the fall. Concentration, Communication, and taking Charge were the "words of wisdom” for this year's varsity squad. The team was young and lacked experience but not willpower. Losing only two seniors, the team hopes to be strong in '88.
Leading the varsity were senior captains Candy Howard and Becky Ramsey. The team finished with a 7-3 conference record for third place. Their overall record was 10-12. Major victories included wins over Bluff-ton. Delphos, and a two-game romp over Lincolnview and Allen East.
Special team awards went to Candy Howard for MVP and Becky Ramsey as honorary captain. Candy
and Becky were also recognized on the NWC first team. The Bulldog Playmaker award was nabbed by Howard and Beth Badertscher. Joey Hull received the Underclassman Award. The '87 Varsity was coached by Jackie Weaver. Jodi Dearth served as team trainer and student assistant coach.

Junior Varsity Volleyball this season was a time for learning. Led by captains Karen Faulkner, junior, and Jennifer Simon, sophomore, the team finished with a 3-13 record at the end of the season. The conference record ended with a 2-8 tally. Season highlights included conference wins over Bluffton and Delphos and a thrilling three-game victory over Lima Central Catholic.
Although short on wins, the Junior Varsity was big on effort. According to Coach Jackie Weaver, the J.V.'s were “a team that practiced hard and improved their skills tremendously throughout the season.”

The boys 1987-1988 Varsity Basketball team accomplished many goals during this past season. They were a team that started the season at 1 win and 3 losses, but finished the year with 16 wins and 8 losses. The Bulldogs were a team of destiny and would have many good things happen to them.
There were many highlights of the season. One of the most exciting was when Tony Boutwell made his last second goal to beat Columbus Grove. Another was Ada's tremendous defensive effort placed on our arch rival Hardin Northern and Tim Nichols. The Ada Bulldogs also had a new school record as being the top defensive team for the second year in a row in the Lima area with 45.0 points.
It was a great year for Ada capturing the Sectional Crown over U.S.V. 69-40; the District Championship over L.C.C. 45-44 in overtime and a trip to the Regionals at Bowling Green State University. This is only the second time an Ada team has made it that far.

Basketball — J.V. Style
The 1987-88 J.V. Boys Basketball team showed much progress and improvement throughout the season. They were led by their Junior tri-cap-tains; Brent Dye, Mike Reed, and Nick Prueter, the team’s M.V.P. Coach Baker stated, “I was happy with the way we ended our season. We won a close game against a real fine Fort Jennings team. Then, we took the conference J.V. Champs, U.S.V., right to the wire on their home floor — losing a hard fought 41-37 final.”
Other starters were sophomores Ryan Bucher, Paul Allen, and Matt Conkling. Troy Hazelton and Jason Carey contributed to the team in a reserve role.
The J.V. Girls Basketball team had a tough start this year but came out all smiles by ending with three victories. The captains for the team were Junior Andrea Campoli and Freshman Amy Reese. Reese also led the team in scoring, as well as rebounding. Campoli led in recoveries and free throws.
Everyone is filled with expectation. Heather wings a shot from the side.

With the loss of the top six players from last year's 17-5 team, the girls’ basketball program went through a difficult rebuilding year. Becky Ramsey was the team’s only senior and served as team captain, leading by example with her great hustle.
Highlights of the season included the season opener win over Ridge-mont with a score of 54-50. The Lady Dogs got a little over-confident after the first half and let the mighty Green Gophers come back. A big 25 point game by Tracie Lewis helped clench the win for the Dogs as Ada pulled it together. Another season highlight was playing state-ranked USV down to the wire in a new four-quarter stalling tactic. The rivals were rattled but the Rams managed to pull the game out, squeaking past Ada by only four points. The sectional win over a talented Arlington team came down to

Tracie Lewis was the team’s leading scorer and MVP as a sophomore. She was also named Honorable Mention All Northwest Conference. Junior Hilda Andrade led the team in recoveries, and freshman Joey Hull led in rebounds. With most of the players returning, the team will be looking forward to great improvement in the future.
As a highlight at the end of the season, the team rallied together to show their support for the boys’ team in their tournament play. The girls dribbled basketballs from Ada’s IGA supermarket to the Elida fieldhouse just prior to the boys’ LCC district final game.

This year the 1988 track team was young for both girls and boys. There were only four seniors. Deb West captain and Rob Counts captain, also Joel Hoag and Tom Williams. Both Captains were named MVP's.
The Varsity track team had several people qualify for the Regionals in Cleveland. Jason Sumner, Todd Cockerell, Ken Williams, and Tom Williams ran in the relay. Sarah
West, qualified for the four meter dash, Amy Reese for the discus, and S. West, H. Castle, J. Hovis, and D. West ran in the 3200 meter relay. Jenn Hovis had a great year, leading the team in total points, regional qualifier in the 3200 meter run, and had the only first place at an Invitational with 1600 meter run at the Hardin County meet. We'll have a lot of athletes coming back next year.
