High School, four years of new
experiences. Each year taking
us down a different path.
You might say it was similar to
a trek through a supermarket,
grabbing a little bit here and
a little bit there. You never
know what's coming up next,
a dance, a test, or maybe a
new friend. Be it sports, music,
or whatever your interest. high
school seems to have it somewhere,
much like that supermarket
you'll find it if you look. So
before that final checkout p
fill your basket high with
memories to last your whole

With a mixture of bright costumes, good
leadership and helpful suggestions from their
advisor Mrs. Denny, the Drama Club
concluded another year of fun and activities.
Throughout the year, the forty members,
led by the club's president, John Clark,
brought enjoyment and laughs to the
community and Amador students. They
entered a car during Homecoming, entered a
room in the YMCA Haunted House, which
won iirst prize of 5100, sold tickets for their
annual turkey drawing at Thanksgiving, and
supported all Drama productions during the
year. The group also gave small productions
during the year. The group also gave small
productions for veterans, and helped in the
Pleasanton Library book sale.
To be able to provide entertainment for
all, and have fun too, was the goal set by the
Drama Club, and together, the members
fulfilled that goal.

The sailing club had its all time low
5 V ,
attendance. So the sailing club made some
changes. Instead of going on various sailing
trips this year, the club stayed ashore. They
decided that it was too much responsibility
for one advisor to take: therefore, it was run
from a more educational view. The club saw
movies and talked about how to run and
maintain a sail boat, and how it was to live
on a sail-boat. They also took field trips to
boat houses to see how they are built. The
advisor was Ms. Howe.

This year the Amadon Staff put out the
best papers in Amador history. The paper
was alwaays full of controversy with such
subjects as male chauvinism, senior
probation, and the cross countryls team
demand for equal recognition.
The staff under the strong hand of
Editor-in-Chief Steve Mona, put out a good
paper every Friday for the enjoyment of the
student body, Just like last year the staff
was again mostly males. Page Editors were
Carolyn Reinke, Jim Scharber, Teri Schwab,
Debbie Bridgman, Paul Mclnnis, and Dawn

The 1975 Varsity Cheerleaders were Lauri
Jo Howard, Carolyn Reinke, Jo Moschetti,
Margee Ellard, Pam Perreira, and head Pat
Gill. During the summer the cheerleaders
worked at the County Fair handing out
questionaires to raise money for their
uniforms and cheerleading camp fees. Then
the squad traveled to Santa Cruz for
Cheerleading camp. They won a superior
trophy and spirit stick. The cheerleaders
came home from camp with lots of new and
good ideas and displayed their talent at
games and rallies.

The Freshmen Cheerleaders thought they
had a foolproof method of raising money for
uniforms. They put up a booth at the
County Fair Parade, but disappointingly
earned only eight dollars.
The five girls who cheered at all the frosh
football and basketball games were lead by
Lori Gottschalk every Monday and
Wednesday for practices. They were chosen
a week before school was out last year, after
attending a cheerleading clinic for two
Weeks. The other cheerleaders were Lisa
Leach, Diane Valdex, Karen Regwick and

With only two seniors on the squad, the

They have participated in football and

girls went to Santa Cruz to learn new kinds
of yells and routines.
When they came back, they had received
one excellent second place ribbon and three
superior first place ribbons and also won two

It seems you would hardly be able to see
the Donnette Squad through all the ribbons
they received at the Santa Barbara Camp last
August. Totaled up, the girls brought home
24 superior ribbons, 4 excellent ribbons and
a superior trophy.
The girls had bake sales and rummage sales
during the summer which brought in the
money for camp.
The Majorettes and Donnettes practiced
everyday with the band, fourth period, and
had plenty of after school practices.
The fantastic girls were invited with the
band to perform at the Cal State Hayward
game on November 16 and the Raider game
on November 24.
The 1975 Donnettes were lead by Senior
Carol Anderson and the Majorette head
Junior Sue Collins.

This year's Pep Club has helped in many
ways to promote spirit at Amador. They
have sold various items such as spirit ribbons
and buttons. The Pep Club gathers several
times a month to plan and paint posters for
school sports. Some of the members of the
Pep Club also serve as a 'secret pal' to the
members of the sports teams.

The eight girls chosen to represent the
Amador Asilomar girls from the Junior Class
of 1976 Were Lori Barber, Joni Kuhns,
Kathy Garibaldi, Rhonda Hale, Cathy Seniff,
Rande Spica, Kim Wheeler, and Rhonda
Withoft. These eight were selected to attend
the Asilomar Conference held in Monterey
on April 3-5 with Mrs. Purrington as their
advisor. Rhonda Withoft was the candidate
who ran for the Asilomar office. Much time'
and preparation was needed to get
everything ready-campaign slogans, were
written, favors made and, of course, fundl
raisers which made the whole trip possible.

Under the direction of Jim Campana
and Mark Lepiane, Amador's Wind
Ensemble and Symphonic Band have an
excellent performance record for the

These two bands make up the Golden
Don Marching Band. The excellence of
the Marching Band is transformed into
the Wind Ensemble and Symphonic Band
who then perform in music festivals and

I think the basic strength of our school is
our faculty: they're hard working, strong
anc care about their profession. Our student
population is basically a happy group who
seem to be content with their school. Our
school needs some work to improve our
qualityof education. We need a functioning
student center open all day, for meetings
and for lunch time activities. We need a
planned noon recreation library and an
Simply improving our school grounds will
not improve our education of our students.
We need a new set of national priorities,
more commitments, concern and money is
needed at all levels of government and

I have worked closely with various school athletic teams and the classes of 3733, and

We have a strong and loyal student body. It is exemplified by the strong school spirit

I have found that most of the students are very fortunate to have a teaching staff that

After thirteen years at Amador I can still
say that it is a refreshing adventure to com
to school each day to confront my duties
and meet with students. On the subject of
education I can only say that I view it as the
most important subject which we, as people,
can be engaged in today!

"There is a time in every man's educati
when he arrives at the conviction that en
is ignorance, that imitation is suicideg that
must take himself for better, for worse,l
his portion, that though the wide universe
full of good, no kernal of nourishing cc
can come to him but through his tg
bestored on that plot of ground which
given him to till. The power which resides
him is new in nature, and none but he kno
what he can do, nor does he know until
has tried ,... V'
That says it all for me-the challenge, t
excitment, the reward. I can think of
profession I would prefer to education.

The Amador student should involve
himself in reading, writing, and
computational skills required for daily

and rational decision making situation

An important feature of a mature
individual is his ability to direct his time to
provide for both educational and leisure
time activities which are personally
meaningful. Also, the acquisition of skills
and knowledge needed to pursue a
meaningful career reflect the total education
the individual has received.
Amador Valley High School provides
experience to gain the maturity needed for a
sound mind and body. Proverbs 13:18 states
the results of an individuals efforts. Poverty
and shame shall come to him that refuseth
instruction, but he that regardeth reproof
shall b e honored.

Varsity 'ribs' eat bad odds
and knees and wrist and
Through injury and insult, the Varsity
football team fought, won and succeeded in
coming as close as six points of being a part
of the EBAL Championship, losing it in the
final, deciding game to San Ramon by a
disheartening score of 29 to 23.
The Dons, racked with injury upon injury,
Were considered by experts to never get past
their first game, after a stomping loss to
Dublin. But behind substituting
quarterbacks Pat O'Brien and Ray Werner,
the team past it, and then some, as their
next three games were winners. This brought
Amador up even with Dublin in a tie for
With the title resting on the defeat of San
Ramonis tough defence and swift offense,
the Varsity Dons gave the Wolves the best
fight theyive had from Amador in two years.
Unfortunately, penalties and turnovers hurt
the Dons and forced them to settle for
second place in the EBAL League.
Disappointed, the Varsity football team
still smiled, for they had proved the experts

Like a shopper who bought a loaf of bread
at half price, only to find the bread is rotten,
the 1974 J.V. Football team had a season of
success and failure.
The Dons sported a 4 and 3 record, good
for a third place finish, and a 5-5 over all
Under the leadership of Coach Chuck
Foreman, Amador enjoyed a four game win
streak that was finally interrupted by
Granada and San Ramon. The San Ramon
game was one of the finest on any level
anywhere. In that game, the Dons drove
down to the Wolves, one inch line the clock
Offensively the Dons were lead by John
Sevo, who lead the team in scoring as a
quarterback and place kicker. In one game
he turned in such an outstanding
performance that Coach Foreman said, "It
was the best offensive game by one player
since Rich Kanef,
When not handling the ball Sevo handed
off the Ernie Zumbach, a freshman, who was
called upon constantly in short yardage
Defensively Amador was lead by Captain
Dave Sebahar, who controlled the defense
from his middle line backer position.

running around with mixed success.
Under the leadership of new Coach Rich

Amador scored big victories over Foothill

respectively. The Dons other victories came
against Monte Vista and California by 14-13

Pat Inglesby held down the quarterbacking
chores. He spent most of the time handing
off to Kevin Ching and Glenn Hill. Ching
was one of the leagues best runners as well as
one of the smallest.
Defensive standouts for the Dons were
Mike Hoff, Bart Beadleson, and Paul

With injury plaguing the Dons
throughout the season they still managed
a second consecutive E.B.A.L. title. First
came the loss of Andy Finn tearing a
knee cartilage and missing the first nine
games. Next the Dons lost the fine
outside shooting of Phil Hansen, a three
year letterman and all-league guard, who
broke his ankle in the first game of the
second round against Livermore and was
out for the rest of the season.
Following the loss of Hansen, Amador
lost its first league game in two seasons
against Granada. The Dons nineteen
straight league wins being just one short
oftieing the record.
The Dons played one of the toughest
preseason schedules around playing some
of the state's finest teams and taking its
own classic title. The Dons had some fine
individual talent with Andy Finn, Jeff
Hine, and Phil Hansen being chosen as
all-league. Rich Hall and Rob Yackley
played outstanding all around games with

Coach Blanton stood behind his team,
giving them continual encouragement. His
optimism helped keep the team's spirits up
even during the seasorfs darkest points.
But every dark cloud has its silver lining and

team. His final team consisted of
twenty-one members. Positioned as
catcher was Mike Hoff, an outstanding
freshman. The pitching was contributed
by junior Steve Giannini and sophomore
Mark Goodwin. The outfield stations
were held by juniors Tim Piper and Dan
Straface and sophomores Mike Connolly,
Rick Garcia, Steve London, Pete Negron
and Scott Vaughn. The infield was closely
covered by Juniors Jon Connolly and
Tom Raymond and Sophomores Bill
Bevilacqua, Rick Burroughs and Rick
Dayton. Filling combination positions
were all Sophomores Chris,Daprater, Sam
Jorgenson, Bob Koopman, Jim Kreidler,
Mike Krikorian and Jim Yackley.

orientation assembly to start while the spirit squads put the finishing touches on a
prepared skit. It was a hillarious skit characterizing freshmen at lunch. Following the skit,
the freshmen hurried around trying to find their assigned tour groups for the mixed up
tour around campus. From the tour the freshmen went on to meet their counselors. and
at last, get their lockers. Thus ended a day introduction to life on a high school campus.

'iPass me the hammer. Anybody see the
tape? Who has the blue paint?" Those were
familiar conversations heard at the sights of
the floats and cars, as committees and clubs
put in many long hours to be sure everything
was ready for the October 25 event.
The excitement began with a rally and a
parade down Main Street. Many
post-graduates came back to see the events.
Next came the football game against
Monte Vista notching an Amador's win.
During halftime, the floats and the winning
car filed past the bleachers to give the people
a final look before the winning float was
announced. The floats themes were 'LBunny
Hopping Through the 50's" Seniorsg L'Our
Spirit is Sky High" Juniors: N77 Runs the
Lineu Sophomoresg "Road to the Futurei'
Freshmen. Seniors came in first with the
Juniors in second and the Sophomores and
Freshmen sharing third. The band had
previously won the car competition. Their
theme: "Rock Throudh the Times with the
Amador Band." . . .

On December 22, at the Fairgrounds
Cafeteria, another Annual Senior Breakfast
was prepared, cooked and served with
success, with the help of the Breakfast
Committee. The menu was scrambled eggs,
pancakes, suasage, grapefruit juice and milk.
The entertainment was performed by Dave
Ames and John Hemphil, who played
Christmas carols as the Seniors tried to
harmonize. Everyone seemed to enjoy
themselves when Santa joined us and
brought happiness in his sack. This is what
he pulled out:
"Well kiddies, it's been a long trip but I
was bound and determine to be here for the
best Senior breakfast ever. I must say it
looks lovely. I made such a rush trip I wasn't
able to fill all the many requests that came
from this group. So Ilooked over the letters
and jotted down a few items that maybe Illl
be able to take care of for you: For Julie
Martin, whois always worried about her
frizzy blues, A Toni Home Permanent. For
Claudia Gerloff, who seems to always be in
the need of them, a pair of personalized
crutches. For Jeff Mecozzi, because he's so
impressed with himself, a life size self
portrait. For Alicia Truffer, who is a
constant source of information and to assist
her in gathering this information, an 8 line
party line. For Kim Hack, who never seems
to find a pair of shoes with high enough
heels, a pair of stilts. For the Class of '75, a
crowbar, to separate Patti and Max. And I
believe it was Cathy Vaticano who requested
a years supply of pencils and paper, for the
constant moocher Dennis Hart. For Laurie
Jo Howard, to help preserve her pep and
spirit forever, a lifetime subscription to
National Cheerleader magazine. For Greg
Amaral, to promote his image as the class
cowboy, to toy horse. For Toni Beebe, who
has her share of feeling under the weather,
an all expense paid trip to the nearest Kaiser
Hospital. For Bruce Cox, so he can always
have someone he can stay ahead of, a pet
turtle. For Andy Roman, who has a hard
time with our jargon, a dictionary of
American slang. For Cathy Vaticano, an
Italian Godfather, to help make the Senior
Class some offers they can't refuse. For
Cindy Thomas, who never seems to slow
down, a lifetime supply of tranquilizers. For
Bruce Bynum, who really stands out in a
crowd, an express ticket to the Land of the
Giants. For Carr Clifton, who has more than
his share of the morning after blahs, a 25
cup coffee potf'
Santa gave a gift to everyone, and told us
we had the rest of the day free from school.

"Next we will have a skit..." If you
attended any of the rallies this year this
would have to be a familiar phrase to you.
Performing at each rally were the donnetts,
cheerleaders, lettergirls and pom pon girls.
One rally included an exchange rally with
Dublin. The Dublin spirit squads performed
a skit with a take off from the game show
"The Price Is Right." Ending each rally was
lheplaying of our school song.

with the Seniors gathering in the halls and
marching into the gym, chanting their
song. The contest consisted of 4 girls
drinking a can of coke and trying to burp
the loudest. To top it off, was the
sensational skit, smiliar .to the dating
game. Carolyn Reinke had to pick a date
between guys numbered 78, 77, 76, and
75. She choose number 75 and received
100 Hawaiian leis.
The Amador 4'75" Spirit week was

out and did a skit with take off on the
Newlywed game, and the Freshmen did a
