Roget’s College Thesaurus could revise the above statement to mean, Greetings to the Abrupt. But that is by no means adquate. Unexpected, surprising, outrageous and unforseen things have occurred. Unexpected changes in students: the oddity of not having last seniors around anymore. The shock of so many older folks around, to freshmen who were just beginning to like being head honchos in the middle school. Surprising transformations from boring old high school, to fast times at Stuarts Draft, Bigger and better classes with brighter students. Students infused with a new blood: the blood of excitement once again installed in everyone because this year was better than ever.

The Unexpected Sisters Julie and Jackie Vu enjoy dressing up in the Drama clubs props, as does Megan Evans. Outrageous words. It’s a cool deal that life’s so fab, but ridic that the world’s become so volitol dudes. Outrageous fashions: who would have dared to wear a watch with florescent rubber bands all over it or skinny legged, stringy pants that mom used to wear? It could only be explained as outrageous. Unforeseen things such as a fantastic first victory against Waynesboro High School in a long fourteen year history of losses. Unforseen changes in old paint colors. Instead of yuk green walls, sunny yellow walls were available for viewing. Words such as unexpected, surprising outrageous and unforseen could not begin to explain how a fabulous graphic year came together. Yet it was all just a beginning to what would turn into the totally unexpected. by Joyce Lindner Megan Evans and Matt Hoy work on figuring out a college math problem. Introduction 7 tKS .

School was the farthest thing from ev¬ eryone’s mind. Eager students traveled to the beach seeking the “per¬ fect” tan. Eddie Leary and Bonny Lewandowski went to Myrtle Beach, S.C. while Ken Slack and Lynn Nahay sunned themselves on Virginia Beach. Other students spent their vacations in other parts of the country. David Shriver ate lob¬ ster in Maine. Travis Hutchin¬ son attended the St. Louis Cardinals versus the Philadel¬ phia Phillies baseball game in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Stacy Harris accompanied her father to the horse races in Kentucky. A few lucky students had the opportunity to travel out¬ side the United States. Brian Wilmouth and Stacy Tanksley went to Europe on a school re¬ lated trip. Summer was definitely the time for fun in the sun! by Karen Bloodworth Mrs. Glass gets a bird’e eye view of Nags Head, N.C. while photographing a hang-glider from a tall sand dune.

After a week of students dressing in a variety of cos¬ tumes, from army-navy day to beach day, the big day for the football game arrived. On Saturday afternoon, Oc¬ tober fifth, the exciting foot¬ ball game took place. The team moved their record up with another win as we defeat¬ ed Riverheads High School 27-7. During half-time, every¬ one was excited about riding their class floats and seeing who would become the new Homecoming King and Queen. Named Homecoming Queen was Debbie Boyd who was es¬ corted by King Dante Ca- priotti. The float competition was held during half-time. Many students spent long hard hours working on their floats. For the sophomore class, their hard work paid off. Their float won first place. Close be¬ hind was the senior class which took second place. The freshman class followed with third place. The National Art Honor Society float took hon¬ orable mention. All of the floats did a good job carrying through the “Glory Days” theme. The homecoming dance was held on Saturday night. It started at 8:00 and came to an end at 11:00. Colors used to decorate the cafeteria were yellow, light blue, pink, and white. The walls not only had streamers hanging on them, but also had an assortment of balloons and silver stars on them. Each table had a brandy sniffer with a candle flickering in it. As students entered the dance, they found themselves in a world of the unexpected, as they surrounded them¬ selves with the enchantment of music, soft lights, and each other. Many seniors will re¬ member the “Glory Days” of their last Homecoming. by Lori Banks Dante Capriotti and Katie McKechnie seem to feel the enchantment of the night as they dance. The sophomore class prepares to show their spirit as students get ready to ride their float in the parade of floats. 12 Homecoming David Rice and his girlfriend, Shannon Kimbrough, are really enjoying themselves. Dante Capriotti and Debbie Boyd seem to be enjoying their ride around the track after being crowned Homecoming King and Queen. Homecoming 13 40pgft Working for the weekend With the prices rapidly in¬ creasing, many students were having to comeup with extra money. Just where did this money come from? Most students went out and got a job. A wide range of jobs were available to students in¬ cluding bagging groceries, cooking fast food, dishwash¬ ing, busing tables, and various other jobs. One such student, Coyt Shirley, who works at Winter- green, said he got a job be¬ cause he needed extra mon¬ ey. Besides, having extra money working at the resort enabled him to use the accom¬ modations free of charge. When asked if there were any disadvantages he replied, “Yes, the forty-five minute drive to get to Wintergreen.’’ Many of the working stu¬ dents’ comments were that they lost a lot of free time and they they had to make many sacrifices. On the positive side of thinking some commented, “You get many things you need and want that you never had the money for before, and you get to meet a variety of people.” Working and having to keep up with school work kept many students from getting enough sleep. It also took a special brand of determination to keep regular working hours and to keep grades from falling. Teachers also found it very frustrating to teach students who worked after school hours. Often the workers were identified very easily. They were the ones who sat sleep¬ ily in class and were unable to turn in assignments on time. Being a working student gave many a chance to be¬ come more financially inde¬ pendent and therefore more able to choose what they wanted to spend money on, but they also had to sacrifice a great deal of time — both free time, and very often, study time, to hold down these jobs. by Stacy Harris Sandy Vey smiles while working at Country Cookin ' on Halloween night. 14 Jobs Sherry Marshall, who works at Peoples, gives this customer her warmest smile even though it has been a bad day.

Breakin’ loose Lots of people feel as if the students which attend the high school have time only to do chores concerning the many farms in the area. Students that attend Stuarts Draft really do know how to enjoy them¬ selves with many activities be¬ sides farming. One of the main activities is attending parties given by students on week¬ ends or on special events. Jackie Bryant’s and Jerry Crisp’s were two of the many parties given during the year . Their parties were mainly for students at the high school, but some outsiders came from Waynesboro, Riverheads, and Wilson. But that was alright because parties are for enjoy¬ ing yourself no matter what school you attend. by Stacy Tanksley 16 Parties Donna Cogar is trying to make the party lively by covering herself up with balloons.

After hours entertainment Some students have, in their spare time, taken up some in¬ teresting hobbies. Freshman Eddie Groome collects auto¬ mobiles. He found his interest in cars a few years back. Al¬ though he doesn’t have his li¬ cense yet, he still enjoys his collection. Sophomores Beth Forbes and Amy Chandler share a common hobby. Both enjoy riding horses. Beth said that she has been riding horses for more than 10 years. Amy said that she began rid¬ ing when she met Beth in kin¬ dergarten. Both Amy and Beth’s main interest is Dres¬ sage, but they admit that they love to jump also. Beth said that she tries to ride everyday, but Amy said that she only gets to ride on the weekends since she has to travel to Middleburg, Virginia, where her horse, Midnight Cowboy, is kept. Students make time to spend with their hobbies and choose interesting ones. By Travis Hutchinson Hobbies 19 Kenny Pillar jams out. The new looks The students of Stuarts Draft High School have been introduced into a new dimension of clothing this past year. Crop pants, jams, mini skirts with bobby socks, and long T-shirts with long jackets followed by pumps, and colorful tennis shoes were some of the fads worn by many students. Not a passing fancy but a look thats here to say. by Lynn Nahay 20 Fashions Lynn Nahay and Dante Capriotti model the latest fashions.

The variety of work ranged from working with young children to making hospital patients a lit¬ tle bit more comfortable. Wendy Campbell, who vol¬ unteered at Waynesboro Com¬ munity Hospital said: “It is really a great feeling being able to help people and make them more comfortable.” John Howard with the Stu¬ arts Draft Fire Department said: “It is exciting saving people and trying to save their homes. I enjoy helping people in this way.” Traci Gabler, who was a coach for the Stuarts Draft Lit¬ tle League midget cheerlead¬ ing squad said: “It is an exper¬ ience; I enjoy it and have lots of fun.” Troy Elmore with the Stuarts Draft Rescue Squad said: “I enjoy helping people in their time of need.” Unexpectedly, there were many more students involved in the community than people realized. These students found one way to show their pride for their community whether it was in Stuarts Draft or Wayneboro. An expressed thanks went to those, who gave a little of themselves, for a job well done. by Lori Banks Greg Hensley from Wayne Cycle Shop takes time to talk to ninth and tenth graders on motorcycle and three-wheeler safety, during third period on October eighth.

Julie Vu and Eric Balsley clown around before Mrs. Chandler asks them to get down to work. Time out for good times The drama club was under new direction this year with Mrs. Chandler at the helm. Mrs. Chandler’s interest in drama stems from her college days when she helped pro¬ duce many plays. The major project for the drama this year was the play Time Out for Gin¬ ger written by Ronald Alex¬ ander. Mrs. Chandler chose the play because she was familiar with it and had once played the female lead, Agnes Carol. When considering who would get what part, Mrs. Chandler considered the person’s voice and stage presence. The cast consisted of ten characters with five male leads and five female leads. The club also worked on several one-act plays to im¬ prove their acting potential. The main purpose of the one- act play was to keep interest in drama alive and to give the students more experience in working with plays. Mrs. Chan¬ dler felt the drama program needed more support from the students and teachers. She also believed that with added subjects such as drama and speech classes that this could be achieved. by Gene Earhart Drama club 25 A lasting On May 17, at 8:00 p.m., the junior class presented “This Could be The Night’’ at Ingle- side in Staunton for their fel¬ low seniors. The room was decorated with the colors of blue and silver, along with blue and silver balloons. The bal¬ loons added much cheer to eachcouple as they danced to the music of the band X-High.

Near the end of the show, the seniors presented a slide show, which brought back all the memories of each and ev¬ eryone’s senior year of high school.

For some it meant no more books or teachers. For others it meant the beach or new jobs. For most it meant a big party after graduation. This senior class was full of spirit. They won first place many times in the Homecoming parade and they could always be found cheering the loudest at Pep rallies. Althought their high school career ended their future awaited them. Many went to college. Susan Wagoner went to Longwood, Sandra Diggs went to Radford, Dante Capriotti went to Ferrum, and Cindy Wilson went to Virginia Tech. Jackie Bryant and Stephanie Scott went into the Air Force. Missy Terrell said, “After becoming a beach bum I will continue my education in business.” As their conquest was completed we realized that each senior brought something special to our school and their memories will linger in the halls forever. by Heather Williams 32 Seniors Seniors 33 WILLIAM CHARLES AREY Varsity Track 12; VICA 11-12 RAE CAROL ASBRIDGE Swimming 9; Tennis 10-11; Girls Basketball Statisti¬ cian 12; Varsity Club 12; Key Club 10-12; Foreign Language Club 9-11 JAMES ROGER ATKINS Track 10; Cross Country 11; FFA 9-10, 12; VICA 11; ICT 12 GREG DOUGLAS BENSON FFA 11; VICA 12 MICHAEL ALLEN BEVAN VICA 11-12 MATTHEW LEE BEYELER FFA 9-12 34 Seniors JOSHUA ALAN BISER HONIE MARIE BLACKWELL Track 9; Tennis 11; Volleyball Statistician 12; Concert Choir 10-12; Class Secretary 9-11; Key Club 9; Foreign Language Club 9-10; Latin Club 11-12; Drama Club 9-10; Prom Committee 11; Homecoming Committee 12 KAREN DEANA BLOODWORTH KELLY MICHELLE BODKIN Track 9; Key Club 9; FHA 9; Junior Achievement 9- 11; Drama Club 10-11 LISA BOTKIN LAURA GALE BRADLEY FHA 9-10; HOSA 11; FBLA 12 Seniors 35 KEVIN JAMES BRENNEMAN Robert mckinley brooks Junior Varsity Football 9; Varsity Football 10; Junior Varsity Track 9; IASIA 11; VICA 12 SUSAN NICHOLE BRUMFIELD Junior Varsity Basketball 9-10; Varsity Basketball 11-12; Softball 10-12; Varsity Club 10-12 JACQUELINE LYNN BRYANT MELISSA MICHELLE BRYANT LYNETTE CECELIA BRYDGE 36 Seniors THERESA LYNN BUCHANAN FHA 9-12; Federation Officer 11; Vice President 12; FBLA 11-12 SHERRY LYNN BURNETT Foreign Language Club 11 CHARLES CHRISTOPHER CAMPBELL Junior Varsity Football 9; Junior Varsity Track 9; Varsity Football 10-11; FFA 9-10; VICA 11-12; NAHS 10-11 ELDON BRENARD CAMPBELL Band 9-12 DANTE ROBERT CAPRIOTTI AMY LOISEL CASH Varsity Softball 9-11; Girls Basketball Statistician 11; Key Club 9-12, Vice President 12; Foreign Language Club 9; French Club 10-11; Latin Club 12; Student Advisory Council 9; Prom Committee 11; SCA 11; The Society of American Distinguished High School Students 11; Varsity Club 12; Commencement Committee 12 Seniors 37 WILLIAM CHRISTOPHER CASON Foreign Language Club 11; Golf 12 CARLA SUZANNE CHASE Library Club 10-12; Drama Club 10-12; Spanish Club 10-12 CAROLEE CLARK Advanced Choir 9; Concert Choir 10-12; Football Manager 10; Boys Varsity Track Manager 10-11; Football Statistician 12; Girls Basketball Cheerleading 12; Class Vice President 9-10; Prom Committee 11; Class Night Committee 12; Model General Assembly 12; SODA 12; Key Club 12 MARY HEATHER CLOPTON Basketball 9-11; Softball 9-11; Foreign Language Club 9 TIMOTHY MALVARN CLOPTON FFA 9-12 CARLOS DEAN COFFEY FFA 9-10, Junior President 10; Varsity Football Manger 38 Seniors MICHAEL KEITH COFFEY FFA 9-10, 12; VICA 11-12 PENNY LYNN COFFEY Key Club 9; FHA 9-10 ROGER LEE COFFEY FFA 9-12; VICA 11-12 TODD ANTHONY COFFEY Junior Varsity Football 9; Varsity Football 10-11; Varsity Baseball 11; FFA 9-11; Varsity Club 12 MICHAEL SCOTT COOK Varsity Baseball 9-12 ANTHONY DEAN COOKE VICA 12 Seniors 39 ERIC RHEA COWHERD Junior Varsity Basketball 9-10; Varsity Basketball 11-12; FFA 9-10 MONTE RUSSELL CUTHBERTSON, JR.

This procedure brought about many questions and concerns. One concern was that the Augusta County school system would suffer. Many students who lived in the annexed area attended county schools. Another concern was of the tax increase from the county to city taxes. The tax rate of new city citizens would more than double. Some families that wanted their children to continue to go to county schools had to pay tuition or move into the county. Tracy Glass, who lived in the annexed area, said that it didn’t make sense for people who lived in the county to have to live in the city. The many problems that the city’s annexation of the county caused in time balanced out into what would be a comfortable arrangement for everyone involved. by Travis Hutchinson Rock Ratings Was it fair to adolescent consumers to have their music censored and then labeled accordingly? A large majority of parents ex¬ pressed their concerns about the mu¬ sic and the lyrics that their children spent hours listening to. One concern was that “the music affects a child’s mind and therefore influences their actions.” Another parent was con¬ cerned that satanism and other simi¬ lar things would continue because the music lyrics encouraged, granted per¬ mission and gave approval to the do¬ ing of evil and wrong things. Teens, however, felt just the oppo¬ site about the rock rating dilemma. They felt that it was their money and that their parents should not have a say in the type of music they listened to. Kay Campbell added, “Parents just don’t understand what an artist is trying to get across. He or she sings things mentioning the emotion love and they assume that it is physical love. If they actually listen to the rest of the song they will find the artist in¬ tended spiritual love, something genu¬ ine and true.” Music had a power that affected ev¬ eryone. It depended upon the individ¬ ual as to just how a song affected the mind. Two people could hear the same song and be affected completely dif¬ ferent. It was just a song anyway. How the music dilemma would end no one knew, but it appeared that the issue would continue for some time. by Heather Williams « - 5 r„s: " Sy. « 73 ’ V Lx. His future t «n» defensive 0 r ve ar he im.

Teenage movies were popular including Pretty in Pink, St. Elmo’s Fire, Back to the Future, Pee Wee’s Big Adventure, and Teenwolf. Dan Aykroyd and Chevy Chase gave the word “spy” new meaning in Spies Like Us. Action came to the movie screen in Wildcats, Young Blood, and the Jewel of the Nile. The Color Purple, Out of Africa, and The Emerald Forest added warmth while commedy movies like Down and Out in Beverly Hills kept us laughing. 56 Mini Legacy by Heather Williams it again tomorrow Pat Shroeder was a member of a group of men who re-enacted civil war battles. His brigade, the Fifth New York Zouave, received an invitation from Warner Brothers to be extras in the battle scenes of the sequel to the mini series North and South. In November Pat and the rest of his brigade traveled to Mississippi to begin shooting. Pat thought that being a star was easy. He quickly changed his mind however. He said a normal day started at 4 a.m. when he and 2,000 other extras ate breakfast in the dark and then lined up in brigades and marched three or four miles to the filming site. Filming began at eight o’clock and ended at seven that night. Though each take lasted only four minutes it took an hour of preparation before filming could begin. Pat said it cost him almost as much as he made for traveling expenses and food, but if he had the chance, he’d do it again tomor¬ row. by Karen Bloodworth to do AN AMERICAN TRAGEDY On January 28, 1986 at 11:39 am the nation went into a state of shock. The space shuttle Challenger exploded in mid air, only a minute and twelve seconds after lift-off. There was no trace of survi¬ vors. The seven member crew consisted of commander Fran¬ cis Scobes, 46; pilot Michael Smith, 40; Ronald McNair, 35; Ellison Onizuka, 39; Greg Jarvis, 41; and Christa McAuliffe, 37. Mrs. McAuliffe was to be the first American civilian in space. Christa was a school teacher in Concord, New Hampshire. She was selected from 11,146 applicants to be the first teacher in space. She was survived by her husband, two children, her parents and her students in Concord. The disaster was a major setback for t he National Aero¬ nautics and Space Administration. The Flight was to be the 25h flight of the space shuttle in less than five years. The flight was also the second of a record 15 flights scheduled for the year. There was no doubt that the American people were devastated by the tragic flight of the Challenger. Though it happened the American people were strong and continued to have faith in the dream of space flight. by Lynn Nahay what happened? Students were put on probation that started Febru¬ ary 24, 1986. The reason for the probation was bad conduct in the halls, such as being loud and obnox¬ ious. Students had been rude and disrespectful to teachers as well. Many had brought things that were not appropriate. The administration sat down with the faculty and SCA representatives to discuss what could be done about the problems. They came up with two plans. The first was endorsed by both faculty and SCA. The plan was that the students would go directly to the cafeteria when they arrived at school. Once in the cafeteria the student could then choose to stay in the cafeteria and socialize or go to the gym to participate in various sporting competitions. The second plan was that the students would re¬ port directly to their homeroom, with no opportunity to visit before school with students other than those in the students’ homeroom. The second plan was the one that was in practice 90% of Virginia schools. by Travis Hutchinson Mini Legacy 57 N eCV oecert ® ' a( e0 d " 9 ’ 291 86 ’5® 6 - eVS ! « 0 Y e s ( ftetv C Y e 0O Yvv s ' Travel Plans: have they been hyjacked? Many lucky students were getting the opportunity to vis¬ it Europe during the summer. But, the question was . . . “Is it safe to fly in Europe?’’ and “Will this plane be hy¬ jacked?’’ Two teachers were plan¬ ning such trips. Coach Ball and his wife and the Art teacher Mrs. Spilman both felt that whether their trips would still go as planned was a big question. Mrs. Spilman was very concerned about the hyjack- ings but she did not think it would hinder her plans. She planned to visit Paris, the Riviera and Switzerland. Travis Hutchinson who would accompany Mrs. Spil¬ man, had this to say about the hyjackings, “I think for¬ eign countries should be more careful as to who they let in and out. They should check every individual in¬ stead of a small percentage of the people.’’ by Stacy Harris c. a W 0 ” ' r d ' e ' eaC jga sV ' t ' d ® aoW° ' N o e. s S TeV °ttV oP e a ,d ;ws. e oov a od ' s ' C e«i xea , Individual cfr e s e 1 a ' te o ' ° e ,ot ' ©a’ o s 0 Profiles Mark Ellinger, a twelth grader was assis¬ tant manager of Bonanza.

Mike Hamilton, a sophomore, enjoyed working at various art projects when time allowed. His summer plans were to work on a local farm. Missy Terrell, a senior, planned to attend Blue Ridge Community College in the fall. She liked working with horses and rode hers when she could. Advance Parking Lot was her main hangout. Alton Cox liked watching favorite televi¬ sion shows such as, “Who’s the Boss” and “Growing Pains”. Rock music was his preference and working on art was his hobbie. Teresa Serrett worked at Rose’s and when she was not working she liked to spend her time playing sports. She en¬ joyed a mixture of rock and country mu¬ sic. 58 Mini Legacy As far back as it can be SDHS and Waynesboro HS have ries, football being one of the major for the rivalry between the two Until 1985 the Cougars had not bea Giants in football. This game meant the players and coaches as well as lookers. The Cougars played the game with pride. Everyone was so excited at the the game that the field was a huge all. Though the rivalry was not just co the football field, it was the place where power was felt. Would the rivalry between schools end? Well that all depended upon the dents. When the rivalry remained harmless was fun and enjoyable and a little rivalry er hurt anyone. by Stacy Tanksly Halleyfe Halley’s Comet was the most famous and brightest of all comets. It appeared once every seventy-six years. Last seen in 1910, it reap¬ peared in 1986. Have you been “SCRAMBLED? One of the hottest items of 1986 was a satellite dish. Many families wanted to purchase a dish from a local satellite company but were concerned about “scrambling”. Some inde¬ pendent cable broadcast¬ ers felt that dish owners were viewing their channels for free. To keep the dish owners from viewing their channels for free they “scrambled” certain pro¬ grams. Stacy Harris’s family was planning to buy a dish but were concerned that they would have to buy a decoder too. The concern as to what was happening still stood but as this was America the choice to have a dish was a free one, as was whether a person wanted to deal with “scrambling” or not. by Travis Hutchinson Mini Legacy 59 The Dating Game The students received a surprise in homeroom one morning. A member of Mr. Al- marode’s computer class gave out compatability quiz¬ zes to the whole room. The quizzes were filled out and went back to Mr. Almarode to be entered into a computer. Once entered a student could go to Mr. Almarode, pay twen¬ ty five cents, and find out who in the school he was most compatible with. When asked about the quiz Mr. Almarode had several comments. “Where did you get the idea from?” “I got the idea from ads called ‘Computer Match’.” “How does the student get their “compatability quo¬ tient”? “They can get their CQ by coming to the computer room before school and giving twen¬ ty five cents per grade. They will receive a printout of the top ten people that they are compatible with in each grade. They can also bring in their girl friend or boyfriend and find out how compatible they are with each other.” by Mike Wingfield A Special Santa WmmiB During the Christmas holidays a very special teacher had a very special job. Coach Ball was known as Santa Claus at Leggett in Waynesboro. He worked evenings after school. Coach Ball said, “I didn’t do it for the money. If I was doing it for the money I wouldn’t have done it because the pay is low and not worth the trouble.” He played Santa because he loved to see little kids faces light up when they sat on his lap. Some of his current students and former ones as well came to see him saying he was the real Santa. They also enjoyed the candy he gave to all those who came to see him. Coach’s job didn’t stop at Leggett’s. The Friday before Christmas he came to school as Santa For fifty cents a person one could get a Polaroid picture and could tell Santa what they wanted for Christmas. by Tim Shaw The Concept The concept of pen pal writing was a favorite pastime for students. Most students who had pen pals had more than one. Students enjoyed meeting new people and learning how people from other areas of the world lived. Many received gifts and other interesting articles from their foreign friends. The most interesting of the gifts sent from a pen pal was a twig from an Australian tree to Angela Farley. Her friend sent the twig so she could see what an Australian tree look like. Where did people have pen pals? Stacy Harris had a friend in Greece. Jennifer Plunkett had one in France. Angela Farley had pals in Australia, England and Italy. Tracy Batts wrote to friends in Switzer¬ land, France and Spain. The girls had their favorites out of all the countries talked about but enjoyed writing to all of them. by Gene Earhart 60 Mini Legacy o the The N aV «££ ce e . ,„v e cK 1 d o° ,K e A vvS ' - W d V o ' tsN ' r ' 0 j txwa ' 03 „., . „ suh. raa n h ce ° eh c e ha ore ss« d e de ou f att etA t?«. add " ’ nuv- V ' 0 " aSS ' SV Atwirt ' tea. ee«_ «,e = nemV the sta9e , rog rah ' ass SO’ • ot hurao r cV ' h ' t M erS .:„ oa sl e p „ aS h ' S eae " " ;Uove« t a o9 we tatea V a . !«..» ' e " eWP -.»«t 10 ,aac , h ' s v W ' s w ::wa ° ' d (ara ; ' Ive s j»jes ae v jsp a ' V °J£ ‘ Z " A ?£% ce « V„„ » « adv e aad tvja ' e !. 1 o0 r a nce u . nQ ho sp r.T« taeh ' 0 r es the P as - Event of a Lifetime On July 13, 1985, an event of a lifetime happened. Live Aid was a world wide concert which was seen by 1.5 billion people. Status Quo started the concert at 12 noon in Wembley Stadium in London, England. There were 72,000 fans at Wembley who saw such super stars as Spandau Ballet, Sade, Sting, Paul Young and Dire Straits. At the J.F.K. stadium in Philadelphia, Joan Baez started the American part of Live Aid. At 9:10 am in Philadelphia the Hooters were on stage in front of 90,000 fans. Other acts in Philadelphia included Billy Ocean, Ozzy Osbourne, Judas Priest, Bryan Adams, Simple Minds and Duran Duran. The most touching moment of the concerts was at 3:57 pm when Teddy Pendergrass sung a duet with Ashford and Simpson. It was Teddy’s first perfor¬ mance since the accident which left him paralized. In Wembley the group U2 surprised the fans by having their singer Bono Vox slide down the stage thirty feet and into the audience. He returned to the stage with a teenage girl, sang to her and then gave her a kiss. Many people made Live Aid a wonderful event by donating their time and money. If Bob Geldorf of the Boomtown Rats hadn’t takent Live Aid into his care it would have never happened. On July 13, 1985, over $70 million was pledged to help the starving children of the world. Whoever said “You can’t change the world in a day” obviously had not thought of Live Aid. by Heather Williams Mini Legacy 61 flutUVlA- Underlying Wings The junior year was a bizarre one. There was the anticipation of finally becoming a senior and the reality that it was a year away. Treva Hurtt put it best when she said, “It was like being a middle child because you’re not old enough to have senior priveledges but you’re old enough to get respect from the underclassmen.” The year was also a busy one for juniors. They had the usual candy sells in order to sponsor the 1986 Prom for the seniors. They also had to plan how to save enough money from prom to help them in their senior year. Juniors were everywhere! They held offices in the S.C.A., they played sports, and they were cheerleaders. Football cheerleader Jennifer Alexander said, “We finally beat Waynesboro before we graduated!” Although they were the underlying wings to become seniors, they still made it through the year with great success. Still, they all hoped the day in which they would become seniors would get there soon. by Heather Williams 62 Juniors Jennifer Alexander Mark Allen Connie Arehart Pam Atkins Tammy Ayers Eric Balsley Tracy Batts Jill Beadles Andy Beasley Anne Marie Belsky Chuck Booth Malcolm Bradley Todd Bradley Lee Branch Richard Bredden Colleen Britt Jill Buchanan Susan Buchanan Kim Burnett Wayne Byers David Calder Kay Campbell Peter Carey Stephanie Carter Kevin Clark 64 Juniors Doug Cline Hunter Cloud Billy Coffey Jack Coffey Greg Cohron Beth Gibson kicks off her shoes and hits the books in world history class. ■■■■III ..

Their float won first place in the Homecoming parade. They also earned money for their class by selling candy. Angie Slabaugh showed the frustration of having two more years of high school by simply saying, “It was alright being a sophomore.” Pete Rau contributed to his class by being in many of the math contests which usually involved juniors and seniors. What did Pete think of his sophomore year? “Mrs. Taylor’s class was most bizarre and Mr. Avoli was as militant as ever.” These and other sophomores helped make this school great. By the end of the year they emerged into great juniors. by Heather Williams 74 Sophomores Ryan Aleshevich Susan Almarode Laurie Appleford Anita Arehart Jon Arendall Terry Argenbright Tracy Ayers Heather Barrett Lori Banks Tammy Bartley Tonya Bartley Terry Batts Rosie Bell Matt Berry Burt Beverlin Robert Blair Rosita Blair Shannon Bodkin Ann Bowles Allen Boyd Kelly Bradley Glenwood Bridge Shane Brown Kim Bryans Mike Bryant 76 Sophomores Jeff Burgener Lisa Burkholder Brian Campbell Mike Campbell Wendy Campbell Shannon Kimbrough aids Becky Knous with the suds at the Key Club car wash.

An inexperienced or gullible person. This definition may not have applied to all freshmen, but to some it applied very much. The gullible ones who asked a senior where their English class was and got directions to the gym. The inexperienced ones who got tired of hearing that high school was different from middle school. Everyone had trouble adjusting to a new situation, but the freshmen made it through with class. How did they do it? Tina Tutwiler and Julie Stratton didn’t have too much trouble. They said, “There were more people, more activities, and more freedom at the high school.” by Heather Williams 86 Freshmen Suzanne Abshire Daniel Alger Clint Almarode Daphne Almarode Chuck Anderson Freshmania! They came to us every year, but were never accepted with open arms. Somehow, though, they made it through the first day. They fumbled through books and lockers, and stum¬ bled into class five minutes late. But they brought with them a certain something that Stuarts Draft High School could not do without — enthu¬ siasm. Unlike the other classes, the freshmen were still young and vibrant. They could yell, scream, and cheer louder than any other class. Almost 180 freshmen flooded the school in August. This meant just as many new ideas, opinions, and styles. Eddie Groome had this to say about his new experiences. “What do you like about the high school?” “I like the six periods in¬ stead of seven.” “What do you dislike about the high school?” “The short lunch.” “What do you think the freshmen contribute to the high school?” “Immaturity.” by Ken Slack and Mike Wingfield The Class of 1989 Homecoming Float is a good excuse for the freshmen to “party all the time.” Chad Bentz Mark Appleford ii mill " I . 1 Kathy Berrang Sibyl Biller Renee Blackwell Kim Blair Steve Blair Glen Bloodworth Jeffrey Boyd Kim Branch Marty Breeden Pamela Breeden 88 Freshmen Glenn Breen Tim Britt Dawn Brown James Brown Janet Brown ‘ Shannon Brown " " ‘ " I . imiiitiiimi Dawn Brubaker Eric Bryant Scott Burnett Patty Burns Robert Burritt Nancy Byrd Susan Calder Kenneth Campbell Lisa Campbell Kim Carr Tracy Cash Freshmen 89 Debbie Chaplin Fai Cheung Kelly Claytor Vicky Claytor David Coffey Tammi Coffey Terry Coffey Troy Coffey Leigh Ann Cohron Jodie Coiner Tammy Conner Tonya Cork Angie Cox Diane Cox Michelle Cox Jennifer Dague Christy Dameron David Daniel Anne Deacon David Dean Corinne DeCamp Stacy DeSimone Chris Estes Jeff Estes Chris Ettinger Mike Evans Jolie Eves Brian Fields Leslie Fitzgerald Micky Fitzgerald 90 Freshmen Steven Fitzgerald Tenesica Fletcher Jeremy Fretwell Missy Gilreath Mervin Glick Chris Goode Tammy Greenwood Marilyn Griffice Chris Griffin Eddie Groome Tara Hagenlocker Pam Hale Cara Hall Steve Hanlin Amy Harper Freshman favorites Along with the more than 170 freshmen came just as many new ideas and opinions. The freshmen arrived at the high school ready to express them¬ selves on such items such as favorite movies, songs, televi¬ s ion shows, and other topics. When interviewed, floods of opinion rolled in. The first inquiry was about fa¬ vorite movies. Back to the Fu¬ ture was the runaway choice in this category. Second and third places went to The Karate Kid and Weird Science, respec¬ tively. In the next subject, most pop¬ ular song, first place was a tie split between “Money for Noth¬ ing” by Dire Straits and “Oh Sheila” by Ready for the World. Second place went to “We Built this City” by Starship and “Smoking in the Boys’ Room” by Motley Crue took third. The preferred soft drink was Pepsi, followed by Coca-Cola Classic and Mountain Dew. “The Cosby Show” was the choice among television shows by a longshot. “Miami Vice” took second place and the third place slot was filled by “Dyn¬ asty”. by Ken Slack and Mike Wingfield Mr. Schindler selects an excerpt from his favorite Roman Empire book.

The exception to this rule took place on the third Monday of each month. On this day they experienced “activity day’’. They chose from a wide range of activities, anywhere from FFA to Key Club to Foreign Language Club. Chris Estes, when asked what his favorite club was, re¬ sponded with “FFA, because I like what we get to do.’’ The Tonya Hite puts her nose to the grindstone in preparation for one of Mr. Schindler’s killer tests. next question, regarding feel¬ ings toward activity day, was answered with “I like activity day because I like getting out of class.’’ Jeff Estes said his favorite clubs were french club and FFA. When asked how he felt about activity day, he re¬ sponded by saying “I like it be¬ cause I can get out of school work’’. When asked if either was in¬ volved in any club activities, both responded with “no”. by Ken Slack and Mike Wingfield 92 Freshmen Phoebe Kilgore Shawn Kilgore Stephanie Kirby Spencer Knous Randy Kohr George Konizer Chris Koon Kevin Lawhorne Matt Liptrap Amy Lovekamp Barbie Lowery Kevin Lunsford Angel Martinez Melissa Matherly Rob Maxwell Ed McCauley Will McFarlin Melissa McLaughlin Tonya McLaughlin Mike Meadows Donald Miller Jennifer Moran Melissa Moran Susan Moyer David Nice Freshmen 93 Melissa Nice Jeremy Pack Freshmen, Homecoming is always a big event and the freshmen wo rked exceptionally hard to prepare for it. Their float turned out to be a big success. It was decorated with flowers, balloons, several freshmen, and a sign proclaiming them to be the Class of 1989. The judges gave the float a close second place. The freshmen also brought along two new and promising members of the homecoming court, Mark Appleford and Tina Tutwiler.

Freshmen sports To some freshmen, high school represented an oppor¬ tunity to get ahead in sports. The freshmen made up a good part of the junior varsity teams, as well as the cheer¬ leading squads. Kent Swartz, a member of the junior varsity basketball team, had this to say about the freshmen role in sports at Stuarts Draft. “What is your favorite sport?” “I enjoy almost all sports, but I would have to say that my favorite is basketball.” “What about basketball do you enjoy the most?” “The competitive spirit.” “What do you dislike the most?” ‘‘The poor sportsmanship exhibited by many other play¬ ers.” ‘‘What are some things you do to prepare for your games?” ‘‘We do a lot of running and scrimmages.” by Ken Slack and Mike Williams Freshmen 97 I pac t€i‘y Veteran Monitors “Let’s take a few minutes . . . Those few words were often heard in Mr. Patterson’s classes. Only one of his students would appreciate the true meaning of those words. Although many students took their educations for granted it wouldn’t have been the same without the faculty. Our school was always known for its academic excellence and our teachers were what helped us make that happen. A person must be special to be a teacher and our teachers were the best. Besides teaching us they also cheered us on at games, participated in our events, and took an interest in the students.

SALVETE! BONJOUR! Enter into the world of lan¬ guage. Many students were eagerto take on the challenge of studying a foreign lan¬ guage. The students were offered three different languages to choose from. They were Span¬ ish, Latin, and French. Each class throughout the year had cooking days in which they brought a type of food from the language they were studying. The students said it was a good way for them to see how the food differs from ours. Stacy Tanksley, Karen Bloodworth, Lori Banks, and Gene Earhart said Spanish food was the best to them. Many students were offered a chance to go to Europe in the summer or during their Easter vacation. Students found this was a really exciting experience for them not only for the sight seeing but also gave them a chance to speak the language which they had learned. Students had lea rned that the three languages had much in common. Students felt Spanish was the easiest for them to learn as well as speak. This year we also saw a new face in the language world! Ms. Kelly. She taught Spanish the first semester and second semester she taught French. Students seemed to really en¬ joy Ms. Kelly’s teaching. Students felt taking those classes would be very helpful to them in the long run. by Lynn Nahay French Club: Sponsor, Mrs. Beth Velimirovic first row: Mark Appleford, Twan Vu, Treva Hurtt, Carolyn Smith, Heather William, Julie Vu, Dawn Wright, second row: Angela Farley, Amy Fauber, Kim Wiecke, Jennifer Alexander, Bobby Wright, Kim Worontzoff, Pat Schroder, Chris Stratton, third row: Pam Sears, Traci Gabler, Pam Carr, Noel Thomas, Gerry Cox, Sam Sitter, Debbie Curtis, Mary Davis, Pat Smith, Adam Funk, fourth row: Mark Hodge, Chris French, George Thompson, Gerry Obien, Melissa Matherly, Erin Jimenez, Tonia Cork, Colleen Britt, Sherry Winton. fifth row: Melissia Gillreth, Sybil Biller, Thao Tran, Julie Stratton, Chrissy Harris, Pam Wellbrock, Diane Cox, Sherry Simmions, Katrina Ulrich, sixth row: Scott Stroop, Richard Parker, David DeSimone, Todd Bradley, Fai Cheung, Steve Melvin, Tony Jones, Dean Hostetter.

So we sat in the house all that cold, cold, wet day.’’ One would have heard this famous line of Dr. Seuss from The Cat in The Hat, which the library club members read to the children at Happy Day Child Care Cen¬ ter and Ladd Elementary. The library club was made up of a limited number of stu¬ dents who showed an interest in the library. The library club did many different things for the school throughout the year. They read to children at Happy Day Child Care Center and Ladd Elementary on Tues¬ day mornings. The members had a fund raiser to make mon¬ ey so they could buy new books for the library. They also held a faculty tea for the teachers and staff.

They participated in four dif¬ ferent debates. In September, they attended the University of Virginia Debate Workshop. Their first debate came in Oc¬ tober against Wilson. The team then went to the Shenan¬ doah Invitational in December. In February, the team played against Waynesboro. Their fi¬ nal debate came with the Dis¬ trict in March. Mrs. Banks considered the season a successful one. She added that debating is a very technical event, and that each team member had to know all of the techniques of debating and also had to learn the ma¬ terial in depth. Senior team member Erin Sills was high individual in each of the debates.

Some activities included the Big Buck Contest, State For¬ estry Field Day, FFA open gym, and many more. All of these activities are included in being an FFA member. Many goals were set by the FFA club throughout the year. Some of these goals are lead¬ ership, citizenship, and agri¬ cultural development.

Therefore, it is essen¬ tial for students to have a thor¬ ough knowledge and under¬ standing of the mechanics of the language. However, there is more to English than conversations and writing papers. Reading is another very important part of each English course. The novels that were read this year by the freshman classes are: Tom Sawyer, The Moon is Down, A Death in the Family, and Separate Peace. The sophomore class read 1984, To Kill a Mockingbird, The Great Gatsby, and also read several plays. The junior class took on a few more novels than the un¬ derclassmen. The total num¬ ber of novels that they were assigned to read was five. The novels were: The Scarlet Let¬ ter, Huck Finn, The Glass Men¬ agerie, Of Mice and Men, anc The Grapes of Wrath. The senior English classes also read five novels. They were Hamlet, Heart of Dark ness, Wuthering Heights, Re becca, and Pride and Prejd dice. by Stacy Harris!

Dne of the choices was I.C.T., which was taught by Mr. Rich¬ ardson. Mrs. Critzertaught the ntroduction to business course, and last but not least was typing, taught by Mrs. Ta¬ liaferro. Two typewriting courses were offered to students. One was jbeginning typewriting, which was a course of a full year. Most students who elected to take a typing class chose this one. The other class was per¬ sonal typing. This course only lasted for one semester. In this class students were taught the basics of typing. The introduction to business course was offered to any stu¬ dent who wished to learn more about the business world. In this class students were taught how to manage their money, how to fill out tax forms, and other helpful busi¬ ness tips. The I.C.T. course was another business class offered to stu¬ dents. This course was one with many demands on the stu¬ dents. To take this course stu¬ dents had to have a part-time job. Students would only at¬ tend school for half of the day, then go to work. Mr. Richard¬ son would then make regular check-ups on the students. He would talk to the student’s bosses about how each stu¬ dent was progressing. If the student was not making steady progress he or she would no longer be allowed to take the class. Mr. Richardson, Mrs. Critzer, and Mrs. Taliaferro each did their share for preparing stu¬ dents for the business world. by Travis Hutchinson Business classes 129 As Mrs. Spilman enters her art room she learns that she has another semester of school before summer vacation.

They became skilled in the elements of design while using clay, paint, ink, glue, scissors, and markers. They learned to express the world around them, and throughout the year they studied the art of our past. A.P. art was taken by only a few students throughout the school. These students se¬ lected, painted, and drew portfolios. This independent study resulted in aquiring col¬ lege credits while still enrolled in high school.

Here students had the choice to select courses that would help them become aware of the jobs they wanted to exper¬ ience in the working world. Tech School offered such courses as auto mechanics repair and refinishing, data processing, carpentry, cos¬ metology, drafting and de¬ sign, health assistant, elec¬ tronics, horticulture, office assistant, secretarial admin¬ istration, and much more. Students had talked highly Tech school about Tech and encouraged students to take advantage of what is offered to them. Students said it was a really good way of meeting new people from other county schools such as Wilson, Buf¬ falo Gap, Fort Defiance, Ri- verheads, Lee and Waynes¬ boro.

In a heart beat For the freshmen and soph¬ omores, their physical educa¬ tion period was a period of en¬ joyment and freedom. There were many new things in the p.e. department this year. The teachers worked with a phys¬ ical fitness unit to lower the students’ heart rates. With this unit the teachers had many different kinds of equip¬ ment for the students’ use, such as exercise bikes, row¬ ing machine, weights, jumper joggers, and jump ropes. This unit was done many times throughout the year, usually on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. The freshmen learned how to calculate their exercise heart rate and how to do CPR properly. The sophomores went t hrough drivers’ educa¬ tion and health. There were two new faces in the p.e. department during April and May. Mrs. Joan Brown and Mrs. Sandy Powell had student teachers, Miss Nancy Norman and Miss An¬ gela Hensley who taught most of the time they were at the school. Many students had a need for their p.e. class, which ina- bled them to relax and to have fun. P.E. gave students a break from their other classes, which was very much needed. by Lori Banks Physical Education 135 Striving for excellence The Concert Choir under the direction of Mrs. Kelly Lowe had a very successful year. The choir had two major shows which included “Christ¬ mas Feelings” for the Christ¬ mas show and “The Beat Goes On,” for the spring con¬ cert. The forty-five members of choir did their best to make each performance memorable to all that attended the shows. The choir performed at differ¬ ent area churches and nearby schools. Throughout the year the choir did different fund raising projects such as a yard sale and a bake sale in order to supply all of the materials needed for the concerts. The band members directed by Mr. James Taylor, had yet another successful year. They performed at a variety of events this year. The band played in two parades which included the Waynesboro Christmas parade and the Staunton Parade. They also performed at two schools: Stuarts Draft Middle School. The students really enjoyed the performances. The band really worked very hard to play the best of their ability. by Gene Earhart Carolee Clark and Laura Kenyon work to perfect their dance steps before the upcoming concert on May 24 .

Most students unex¬ pectedly found the assem¬ blies very enjoyable. In the Fall, Pat Schoeder and Duane Bradley presented the U.S. History classes with a presentation on the Civil War. They had Northern and South¬ ern uniforms and guns. In the Spring, the United States Air Force presented their theater van to the school. The theater on wheels con¬ tained a fast-paced multi-im¬ age show called “Gifts of Flight.” On March 4, the Wayside The¬ ater presented a show about Mark Twain. A man made ai surprise entrance on the stu¬ dents as he entered from the back of the auditorium. He ' then shouted in a voice like Twain’s ‘‘I like to sneak up on people this way.” Students from the Freshmen on up to the Seniors found the show to be quite funny.

Sponsor Jan Glass and Editor Joice Linder had their hands full teaching the beginners the basic steps which need to be taken to construct a perfect yearbook. Three of the staff members along with Mrs. Glass attend¬ ed the Herff Jones plant in Pennsylvania last September. There our cover was de¬ signed, and they learned ex¬ actly how the yearbook was put together after it left the staff. The Legacy staff had lots of difficulty trying to meet dead¬ lines. Many were late and out some did not contain the ele¬ ments needed for a correct layout. The staff would like to express our thanks to Mrs. Glass for her help and deter¬ mination to create a nice year¬ book. by Stacy Tanksley Yearbook 143 Carolee Clark watches her step as she walks back to be seated.

The ultimate conclusion Seniors counted down the days, hours, and minutes until the day and hour their diplo¬ mas were in their hands. Just moments before the com¬ mencement exercises began many different emotions were going through each gradu¬ ate’s mind. Some students were excited and happy, while others were scared and sad. The graduates realized that they would be beginning new lives in a different world. On June 7, at 8:00 p.m. all the seniors were dressed in their maroon, and white gowns, with their caps sitting on their heads. They all were anxiously awaiting for the band to begin playing “Pomp and Circumstance’’ so the long march down the aisle to end their high school years could begin. Mr. G. John Avoli, principal, was the speaker for the gradu¬ ation ceremony. Mr. Avoli told the graduates two stories from his childhood: one about his father and the other about a man named Father Bell. The class of 1986 was the first class to Mr. Avoli as he was their principal for their four years of high school. Graduation 145 Robert Brooks walks off the stage after receiving his diploma.

When the final moment ar¬ rived and all diplomas were in each graduate’s hands, the graduates waited for the band to begin playing “Trumpet Vo¬ luntary’’ for the long march out of the gym into a new and dif¬ ferent world. After the ceremo¬ ny was over, one could find many new adults saying their last good-byes to the staff, faculty and their friends.

The varsity football team went undefeated for the first time ever. The Cougars beat the Waynes¬ boro Little Giants for the firs time in the school’s history. Cross Country had its best season in over five years They beat teams like Luray and Buffalo Gap which they had not done in almost five years. . The coaches played an im¬ portant role in the success o the year and deserve a lot ot the credit. They put countless hours after school training the athletes to be the best they could possibly be. by Tim Shaw 6 Making a splash This year SDHS had a new club. The swim club, through long and hard practices, had a very impressive season. Coached by Alec Thompson and Nancy Kelly, the Dolphins had two mini-meets, two trail meets, and a championship meet. At the 1985 champion¬ ship meet, Waynesboro High School won. However, this year the dolphins won. The Virginia Club Championship meet was held on Saturday, October 19, 1985. The Dol¬ phins came in first place with 250 points, followed by Lee High with 232 points, Waynes¬ boro with 118, and Western Al¬ bemarle with 92 points. Rae Asbridge, Hunter Cloud, and Susan Caulder led the Cougar swim club as each broke former swim meet re¬ cords. Hunter Cloud had two firsts and two seconds. Susan Caulder placed second four times. Rae Asbridge placed first four times. by Karen Bloodworth Daphne Almarode comes up for air while doing the butterfly stroke. 150 Draft Dolphins Stuarts Draft Dolphins: Shelley Winton, Heather Yates Lynn Herring, Eddie Groome, Kathy Sprouse, Kelly Woodworth, Rae Ashbridge, Coach Alec Thompson, Nicole Thompson, Daphne Almarode, Rhett Siever, Chris Koon, Susan Caulder, Coach Nancy Kelly, Tonya Cork, Jennifer Dague, Ken Slack, Hunter Cloud. Draft Dolphins 151 Positive Attitude “On your mark, get set, go . . . and the sound of the starting pistol began the 1985 cross country season. The expectations of this year’s cross country team were high! The runners put in a lot of hard work, time, and dedication toward their excel¬ lent season. Practices started a week before school and con¬ tinued every day from approxi¬ mately 3:15 until 5:00. All the hard work paid off because the boys team record was the best ever for SDHS. The girls team did very well also, especially in view of the fact that there was not a full team at the beginning of the season. They did however go on to place second in the dis¬ trict. They placed fifth in re¬ gional, and placed sixth in state. The boys team finished fourth in the district meet, which was held this year at Piedmont Community College. They placed sixth in regionals and they held eighth place out of twenty-two participating teams in state. When asked what this year’s strong points were coach Sandy Powell replied, “I feel that this year there was more of a total team effort.” Two members of cross country made the all-state cross country teams. They were Amy Rice and Steve Gor¬ don. Amy and Steve also set new school records on the three and one tenth mile course. Amy’s time was twen¬ ty-one minutes, and forty sec¬ onds. Steve’s time was seven¬ teen minutes, and thirty-four seconds. The new members for this year were Eddie Leary, Steve Gordon, and Robin Watts. The freshman runners for this year were Leigh Ann Coh- ron, Robert Burritt, Todd Snead, Mark Appleford, and Tracy Cash. Senior members were Amy Rice, Erin Sills, Tim Shaw, Mike Lawson, and man¬ ager, Katie McKechnie. All the runners had a very positive attitude toward their sport. Mark Appleford, a freshman, proved this point in saying, “I think more people should go out for the team next year. Anyone who puts his mind to it and stays with it can be a very competitive cross country runner.” by Stacy Harris Amy Rice sprints past Debbie Fink for the lead in a meet with Buffalo Gap.

Sinclair Is successful season The girls junior varsity basket¬ ball team and Coach George Sinclair completed another highly successful season. The success was reflected by their outstanding seasonal re¬ cord of 16-2. The teams suc¬ cess did not come very easy though. Injuries, as always, played a key role in the girls’ season. Kelly Bradley, a sophomore and co-captain, injured her an¬ kle during the season. She was out for two weeks and missed three games. When Kelly resumed play she was not fully recooperated but played anyway since her re¬ placement was also on the in¬ jured list. Coach Sinclair said that the closeness of the team was also very important. The team was able to accept defeat. For example, following the teams loss to Riverheads, while in the locker room some team members began to stutter and got tongue tied. The rest of the team members got a big laugh out of it. The team could then look back on the game from a different point of view and learned from their mistakes. Coach Sinclair was very pleased with the success of i the team. He helped the girls through the hard times and the girls did the same for him. by Travis Hutchinson 154 Girls j.v. basketball SD Opponent 53 Waynesboro 12 29 Lee High 15 44 Eastern Mennonite 18 45 Waynesboro 13 36 Luray 16 23 Buffalo Gap 21 28 Lee High 20 30 Riverheads 26 37 Madison County 31 23 William Monroe 15 36 Wilson Memorial 24 40 Luray 14 22 Buffalo Gap 29 29 Riverheads 31 36 Madison County 22 36 William Monroe 21 39 Eastern Mennonite 25 46 Wilson Memorial 18 Final Record: 16-2 Kelly Bradley and Shannon Kimbrough fight with several Riverheads players for a rebound.

The cougars grew from game to game and stead¬ ily proved themselves as one of the best girls varsity teams in the area. When it was time for the season to end, and the tourna¬ ments were beginning, our girls were on their way. They played Luray in the first tour¬ nament game. Mary Clopton led the team’s scoring with a total of nine points in the game. YoYo McDuffie also contributed nine points to the final score of Stuarts Draft 29, Luray 19. On Saturday, De¬ cember the seventh the tour¬ nament days continued and we took on the Madison Coun¬ ty Mountaineers. YoYo McDuf¬ fie controlled the scoreboard with a total of thirteen points. Nicky Brumfield also added twelve points to the final score of Stuarts Draft 38, Madison County 42. Even though the girls had a major letdown by not winning the tournament, they still showed the enthusiasm and spirit they took with them to the first tournament game. This year the team was in¬ fluenced by the help of Renee Tolar, Dana Chittum and Don¬ na Cogar. These girls were moved up from junior varsity. Ail together they scored a to¬ tal of two hundred six points for the varsity team. Renee Tolar expressed that she felt honored to be moved up to the varsity team, but at the same time she felt as if she didn’t get to play as much as she would have on the ju¬ nior varsity team. The team’s enthusiasm, courage and sportsmanship was maintained throughout the season. These qualities, besides knowing how to play a good basketball game, were what made this team an out¬ standing one. by Stacy Tanksley Girls Varsity Basketball 157 Jason Sorrels looks to Coach Wenger for the next play.

They only won three of the nine matches they played. The girls had one win in the district, which was against Riverheads. In the dis¬ trict tournament the girls were knocked out in the second round. The boys’ season was a shock. Everyone thought the boys needed “a building year” because the team was very young. The boys’ record in¬ cluded five wins and three loses, four of the five wins were district wins. The boys’ team became the district tour¬ nament runner-ups.

It took patience, dedication and hard work. Coach Walt Clevenger worked his players hard. With girls who were not quite seasoned in softball, the team played a good season. Senior players like Nicky Brumfield, Debbie Boyd, Missy Douglas and Lynette Bridge made the team work hard, and their attitudes toward the sport made even their losses personal victories when they knew they had played their best.

Both teams com¬ piled undefeated seasons. The boys ended the season with a 4-0 record and the girls had a 2-0-2 season. Both coaches said that each team member contributed in his her own way to help make the season successful. But for the boys Troy Coffey did par¬ ticularly well as he went on to the District Meet with the var¬ sity squad. He participated in the pole vault. The girls also had some outstanding partici¬ pants as Julie Wright set a new school record in the 300 meter hurdles and Cynthia Vest did the same in the triple jump.

Such squads included girl’s basketball, football, and boy’s basketball. Such students as Kenny Pil¬ lar, Mike Diehl, Chucky John¬ son, and Lee Branch and many others formed the Rowdy Crowd, in which they helped the cheerleaders by cheering and making the crowds roar. Each cheerleader showed their spirit by always smiling and showing their dedication at each game. The cheer¬ leaders put much time and ef¬ fort in by staying after each day and working hard in mak¬ ing themselves better. Also this year we saw a new face, Mrs. Gay Banks, an out¬ sider who was very dedicated in helping the boy’s basketball team out. Mrs. Banks spent many long days helping the cheerleaders in becoming bet¬ ter for each game. Mrs. Banks said she really enjoyed being a part of the squad and said it was a good experience for her; she also added she en¬ joyed meeting the new stu¬ dents. Each squad felt that the 1985-1986 year was a suc¬ cess and gave much thanks to their sponsors: Mrs. Harouff, Mrs. Bridge, and Mrs. Banks. by Lynda Nahay Boy’s basketball cheerleaders: Susan Almarode, Pam Brown, Alisa Gale, Crystal Lawhorne, Dana Leach, Claire Jennings, Amy Rice, and Katie McKechnie.

BANG! It ended in a bang. The year that began with harmless paint smells ended with the bombing of Libya. Granted the two were not related, both none-the-less happened. 1986 was designated the year of the unexpected. Painting the entire school was no small accomplishment. It was a long, tedious task that had to be done just right. Fortunately the county hired a competent crew to get the job done. The painting of the halls and classroom walls was not all the painting that was done. Michelle Fitzgerald volunteered to paint an academic mural on the wall opposite the library. With volunteers such as Candy Northedge and Kelly Bodkin the project went smoothly. A cougar mural was also painted in the cafeteria. Fashion oriented people like Kathy Berrang, Angie Frazier and Julie Stratton set trends among students. Paisley shirts and organic shorts exploded in the halls. Even Santa, played by Coach Ball, made his statement in the traditional red and white. Jackie Bryant, Donna Cogar and Katie McKechnie enjoy a homemade lunch of chips and dip. The beach is a favorite summer hangout for students. Yolanda McDuffie and her teammates await instructions on what plays Mr. Clevenger expects next. 206 Conclusion Student teacher Ms. McKinney stops to talk to Mrs. Unger before heading off to coach the girls tennis team. Amy Cash and Brian Willis of Riverheads High School take time out from the party at Jackie Bryant’s house. Sandy Vey inches up on her opponent during the district cross country meet. Wilson High School took first place in the meet. Conclusion 207 Explosion! Before anyone realized the issue of annexation had come upon the masses, Waynes¬ boro captured a large portion of Augusta County. Students who had always assumed that they would graduate from the high school were now faced with the choice of whether to go to Waynesboro High or to stay where they were. Erin Sills holds tight to her position in the district cross country meet. Kim Shaw enjoys a little social time in the library during her lunch period. Students have the option to spend their time at lunch or working in the library on projects that are soon due. World events exploded around the globe. The was an earthquake in Mexico that killed many and a volcanic eruption in Columbia that reached fantastic propor¬ tions. When the space shuttle Challenger blew up many were saddened. It was the tragic loss of seven lives and it put the further advancement of the shuttle program on hold. The meltdown of two Soviet reactors caused the people of the world to wonder just how safe they were. When the United States put Libya on probation after a massive increase in terrorism, the problem was not solved. An act of force was then ap¬ plied. Libya was not the only one put on probation, students were also put on probation for bad behavior and a rash of im¬ proper conduct. Fortunately students were wise to the warnings and further punish¬ ment was not needed. It appeared to indeed be the year of the unexpected. Be fore it was realized the yea was over and it was time ti pick up with summer vacation: and the jobs at hand. Tht graduated seniors were off t face the world of college, worl and marriage. When the door; opened again the next Sep tember it could only be hope that it would be half as excit ing as the year preceeding it by Joyce Lindner Madame Veldemerivic instructs Corinna DeCamp where to put the Pepsi during a French celebration.
