Andrean High School ' s home is 5959 Broadway , Merrillville, Indiana. — Introduction Introduction — 3 W " ” ! ' ».uo .«» • Dt ' • " l »»0° l } ndrsa nr Hr 4 — Introduction Broadway. It has been said that a visitor to New York City needs to remember only one street. This street is Broadway, starting at the tip of Manhattan Island and leading into upper New York State. Introduction — 5 Broadway is a place of bright lights, a magical place where dreams come true. While we are at Andrean, we are in the spotlight as we prepare for the future. The spotlight shines on us when we win a decisive victory, when the spring play opens, when we perform as clowns, and when we finally graduate with tassels on our hats. Faculty and administration guide and direct our preparation as Andrean acts as the road to stardom on another Broadway. 6 — Introduction STUDENT LITE 8 — Student Life Student Life — 9 HOMECOMIMG with the annual parade of floats down Broadway.

Student Life — 23 oriCE upom a mattress The Drama Club presented Once Upon A Mattress, a fairy tale-like musical for the spring play. The play is a parody of the familiar children’s story, The Princess and the Pea. Like the fable, the play’s main characters are Princess Winnifred, a young prince, and the queen who insists on putting all of the would-be princesses to the test. These roles were played by Angela Volan, Michael Martinez, and Kim Zimmer. In the comedic adaptation of the story, the princess swims from her swamp kingdom to the castle in search of her shy and boyish prince. The play ends happily as Princess Winnifred passes her test and wins the prince. fidl noe upon A mAU.IiOSS jftjiA if? { S 3 iff mvvr ' CAST Minstrel Wizard Prince Dauntless the Drab. .

In the classes we take at Andrean, we develop ourselves mentally, emotionally, spiritually, and sometimes physically. We prepare ourselves to handle any situation that may come our way. Our ultimate goal is complete self-reliance. Through academics we may come closer to this goal. Through academics we ready ourselves for our moment in the spotlight.

Nonetheless, Coach Klora’s varsity squad proved once again that they could win without home courts. They compiled a record of 9 wins and 5 losses. Top singles competitors were Tom Rosta, Brett Teske, and Fernando Rivera. Completing the season at the top doubles positions were teams of Scott Burton and Bob Vegter and Pat Fleming and Rob Hevezi. Niners shut out Crown Point, Gary Wirt, Gary Roosevelt, and Merrillville. In the Lake Station Invitational Niners finished a strong second. In the state tournament, Andrean faced Griffith (12- 3) and Lake Central (16-0) in sectional play. Upsetting Griffith 4-1, they advanced to sectional championship against Lake Central, losing 3-2. Coach Klora praised the fine season and individual efforts and performances. Individual award winners were Tom Rosta, Most Valuable, and Brett Teske, Most Improved. Boys’ Tennis 86 — Sports Lady Niner Reachers Regionals The Andrean girls’ golf team had a season characterized by strong individual performances.

Girls’ Golf Sports — 87 Boys’ Cross Country at its Best Coach Mark Horvath guided the boys’ cross country team to a record of 15 wins and 2 losses, posting the best record in the history of Andrean cross country. Season highlights included victories over Merrillville, for the second year in a row, and Crown Point, whom the Niners defeated for the first time in nine years. In addition to the dual meets, Niners finished a strong second place in the Hammond Gavit, Lowell, North Newton and Boone Grove invitationals. The team was also characterized by excellent individual efforts, led by captains Pete Sanchez and Blair O’Connor and number one runner Brian Kopack. Midway through the season at Wheeler, Pete Sanchez and Brian Kopack broke the course record of 16:01 with times of 15:58 and 16:00 respectively. In doing so, Pete and Brian became the second and third fastest runners in Andrean history. In the state tournament, Niners placed second in their sectional. Coach Horvath was disappointed with the team’s performance in regionals but more than happy with the fine season record the team had compiled. He said, “Andrean became one of the premier teams in the toughest part of the state. We are no longer just another competitor but are now considered a contender.” ♦Most Valuable Runners were Brian Kopack and Pete Sanchez. Winner of the first annual O’Connor Award was Blair O’Connor.

Girls’ Cross Country Sports — 89 A Season of Highlights The 7-3 Niners completed a powerful season highlighted by impressive wins.

Niners Kill Crown Point Although the 1987 season was not one of victories, it was definitely a season of learning. The Niners realized that skill, teamwork and determination were the keys to success, if not victory. The turnout for freshman and junior varsity teams was so large that four squads were necessary to accommodate the girls. The varsity hit their high point at mid-season when they pulled together to down the Crown Point Lady Bulldogs, who were ranked in the top ten.

Dead on impact, police said, was the driver of the car, lulie Rothenberg, seventeen " couldn ' t believe, when I came to school the next day, that lulie wouldn ' t be here. She was always so funny, always talkative . . " Everyone loved her — you couldn ' t help but love her . . . " " Julie really cared for others. She had a gift for cheering people up. I can never recall Julie being in a depressed or angry mood. She always had something to say that somehow made you feel better ... " " She wasn ' t afraid to stand firm with her views. Some people give in under pressure, but not lules. I admired her a great deal for that. I think I know why she was that way. Her family has been so strong through all of this. Instead of people consoling them, they ' re doing the consoling ... " " She managed to touch the lives of so many people in seventeen years, lules ' s funeral was the largest they ' d ever had, the funeral director said " You know what — she never decorated a Christmas tree. Because she was Jewish, she just never did it. Last year after break we made a deal that she was going to come over and help me do ours; she wanted to put the star on top. I was going to buy her a little tree of her own, then get some crazy earrings and put them on like ornaments. That way she ' d have a tree of her own and some new things to get weird with ... " " It ' s so hard to let go of a friend. She was genuine; she was what she was. Not quiet. Every day on the way to lunch I ' d meet her in the main hall. ' Do I got a story for you! ' she ' d say " Our retainer days " were really funny. Every couple of weeks last year we ' d pick a day to pin our retainers on our vests. During the off days lules wore her frog. It was a fishing lure she had taken the hooks off of . . " Today has to be the saddest day I ' ve ever seen at Andrean, but one of the warmest. Boys are not afraid to reach out and embrace or lend an arm to cry on. Girls hold each other in comforting hugs, sharing the pain that each other feels. Friends, enemies, strangers are all somehow brought together in sorrow — supporting each other, helping each other. It ' s too bad that it takes death to make such love and warmth happen ... " " We need to spread love just as lules Rothenberg did in her short lifetime of seventeen years, lules, we love Seniors — 155 Seniors Louis Samaniego Nicole Samarzija Zayda Sanchez Anne Sanders Ellen Sue Schneider Peter Sawochka Anne Schenher Anne Schafer Steven Schwartz Yvonne Schneider Thomas Schulien Scott Schumann Darlene Sepiol Patricia Sebella Muna Selman William Selmer Jacqueline Sepulveda Christine Shakula Daniel Shaughnessy Douglas Sikora Seniors Seniors Amy Sliwinski Debbie Sohn Malissa Sopko Brelis Spiller Gregory Staley Melaine Stanley Alonda Steele Tyra Steele Joseph Stern Kelli Stern David Sullivan Julie Sunwoo LEFT:Chris Brack, Chad Close, and Miss Shropshire ham it up for seniors on retreat.
