Songs, Shouts, And Cinderblocks Signal Peggy Cook and Jim Whitney sing to- gether in one of the most touching scenes of the play. SPRING MUSICAL The spring musical was a melodramatic parody of old-time operettas. Little Mary Sunshine, by Rick Besoyan, is a hilarious saga of the Colorado mountains. The cast was complete with fierce Indians, brave forest rangers, and fair damsels from the east. Seniors filled many of the leads, with underclassmen completing the cast and crew. Diane Drew was superb in her take- off on Mata Hari. The varsity cheerleaders participated in a competition at Chicopee during the spring. It was a valuable, if prizeless, experience. Spring Activities. KEY CLUB The Key Club is the school’s new- est and most active service organiza- tion. Sponsored by the Kiwanis Club, its members are boys selected from the sophomore, junior, and senior classes. The first officers were: Jeff Payton, president; Tom Thompson, vice-president; Sandy Darity, secretary; and Bill Double- day, treasurer. The club’s first pro- jects included construction of the new concession stand and assistance to the “ABC” Program.

GIRLS’ TENNIS The girls’ tennis team, coached by Mr. Robert Kelly, remained undefeated throughout its season, by downing Mary Burnham, Long- meadow, Palmer, Greenfield, and West Springfield. The team was led by Leslie Ludtke and Heather MacConnell, who played the number one and number two positions, and by Melissa Ludtke and Captain Sue Oliver, who played numbers three and four. GIRLS’ TRACK The girls’ track team turned in another splendid season with a rec- ord of 1 — 1. Its only opponent was West Springfield. At the state meet, the team took second place in the twenty-three school competition. Betsy Stosz was first in the shot put and discus and Nancy Hankinson was first in the high jump and second in the shot put at the state meet. A Very Fine Season.

I And Assuming An Active Role In School Events. Sharon Smith Michael Smyth 51 t I “When you put your hand in a flowing stream, you touch the last that has gone before the first of what is still to come. ” These words by Leonardo da Vinci can well apply to the members of the Class of 1968 as you leave Amherst Regional. At this moment of transition you are no doubt reflecting upon what has gone before and, with varying degrees of curiosity, excitement, and anticipation, upon what is still to come. Our sincere wish goes to each of you that your academic and social experiences here have prepared you to challenge the future with a sense of self-respect, with confidence, and with involvement in the urgency of today’s society. 52 — - — rr CLASS OF 1968 Seated, From Left: Joanne Ezbicki, vice-president; Mrs. Muriel Gehrman, class adviser; Diane Drew, secretary.

The team lost in the tourney to Monument Mountain Regional 60-59.

Facilities Outside The School . . . VARSITY SWIMMING A lack of depth in the re- lay teams resulted in a frustra- ting season for the swimming team. Four of the defeats suf- fered by the team were the dir- ect result of losing both re- lays. However, the season did not go without its bright mo- ments, the highlight being the upset win over a strong South Hadley team. Continually strong performances were turned in by co-captains Toby Lewis and Jack Tyler in the freestyle event, and by Mike O’Byrne, who finished sixth in diving in the state meet.

SQUASH Although only in its second year, the squash team, coached by Mr. Paul Judson, is already one of the top two high school squash teams in New England. Competing against more experienced prep schools and a college fresh- man team, Amherst had a better season than its 1-5 record would show. The wealth of experience gained this year and the loss of only one senior make next year’s prospects bright. Widen The Range Of The Sports Program.
