Behind the scenes, up fr ont, there is moving and planning. Everyone has an edge to the final perfection--a new road to follow, a dream to grasp. It ' s not only the people in the spotlight, but the spectators themselves-, they are the players in the audience. All the movement behind the scenes keeps the moments and memories alive, moving us forward toward our tomorrows. f C K K Kt m mm iL _ m Lw t oM t ' . Kr ' pmii!_3L. H_ fr. p _ y .

We are the key that opens the door to new horizons, new experiences, and new challenges. The students of Arlington are a new kind of people-energetic, intelligent, and open to feelings and relating with others. Arlington students are unique as they interact with the pressures and pleasures of school which includes academics, sports, and student life. Our hearts and our minds are the keys that open the door to all of our beliefs and dreams, all of our hopes and fears, all of our pleasures and sorrows, C «w students have feelings. Feelings of happiness and sadness Feelings of hope and fear. But mostly, students have Feelings of . . . LIFE!!!!!! Doors open the ways into activities, sports, classes-the future, the past. We are the keys. Cliques of old students, wandering newcomers and your friends all make up the big and little keys to the good times, the significant and tlie insignificant parts of your life. It all amounts to... people. Those who showed you how to get that special effect on an essay, or that picture in photography; who showed you how to do that well named " problem " in math.

McCloud caught during a so-called workshop. " Star Wars, " a science fiction film about a revolution in a galactic emp.ire, captured the minds, hearts, and money of the U.S., bringing in more money and crowds than any previous movie. Its villains were villainous and its heros were heroic. A fresh change from devil worship, se.x, and murder, the film brought in audiences of all ages and all interests. Its main characters, including two captivating robots, R2D2 and C3P0, dominated magazines, newspapers, posters, T-shirts, and T . V . . Will there be a sequel?

Ronda Magnuson and ( " heryl Brady find softer seats than Kirk lildridge and Nick Laughton . 10 He may not be your beau or true love, but after awhile, you find it best to concentrate on one " knight " at a time. Couples.. .soon you get to be known as " a couple " after you ' ve " gone " with someone for awhile. You are no longer an individual anymore, sort of a " they. " You go to games and dances together, you are invited to parties together, and horror to some, eat lunch together--an inseparable unit until the next knight (or princess) comes along. Then there ' s the friendship way. " Me?! Oh, No! We ' re not going out, we ' re just good friends! " But, of course, no one really believes that after you ' ve been " seen " together. It ' s a way to stay unattached yet still have some of the benefits. Also, should an embarrassing situation arise, you can always revert to the excuse, " I ' m sorry, but I ' m already going out with someone else. " All this doesn ' t mean that it is only the " outgroup " that flirts anymore; oh, no, or that it is wrong to flirt with more than one person. In fact, one comes to find it a well-favored pastime. It ' s what life is all about. Attraction... you see it in classes as note passing and teasing goes on, in lunch lines, and at the activities. The best things in life. .. joking, pretending, dreaming, making friends, flirting, romantacizing, scheming. It all leads to one guy at a time, one girl at a time, and eventually one thing. .. couples. ONE KNIGHT AT A TIME 1. Exchanging tickets and good times during lunch. 2.

WE CAME BY FOOT, BUS, AND CAR — THE ANNOUNCEMENT " The good old days " of Homecoming week IkM ' W ¥ 7 ¥ ¥ A TWT C started quickly, including skateboard f lVlt KY r LAIN t contests, hush day and voting for the ' 78 -• - -» » -•--• queen and her court. Some activities were can- celled or rescheduled with little participation due to campus disturbances. Fridays parade was more organized than the year before and showed off Arlington ' s increasing number of students from the new tracts rising up in Riverside . Friday night was a bustling, warm, moving affair where good timing on the part of key players Jay Dabney and Vince Fierro won the Lions game against Norco 23 to 16. Early timing on the part of Student Council ' s suprise plane got mixed emotions from everyone as it flew overhead announcing: " OUR NEW. . .QUEEN. . .TRACEY. . .TYSON. " Last year ' s queen Natalie Torres crowned Tracey in the dark as fireworks went off, crowning the rest of the court after- wards with the plane and its neon message returning again and again during the ceremony. Saturday, during the dance, the gym sounded with the music of Green Tree. Dancing students filled the back as well as the front of the gym and many returning alumni were seen both at the Saturday night Homecoming dance and Friday ' s game. 1.

TIMING FASHIONS, FADS - WAYS TO CONSTITUTE A RPTITIIN A return to the old ways, old friends routines, and activities occured when school began. But after a few weeks, it was obvious that " . . .everything changed, but nothing was different. " Maybe summer never was ... whatever happened to unicorns? Arlington ' s Liz Jennings returned in the position of principal after a year away at University Middle School. Her straight forward, easy manner remained the same, backed by a fair, forceful administration. 16 1. Karen O ' Brian, Vicki Schulte, and Steve Fralcy at the year ' s first dance. 2. Students file in for another pep rally. 3. Long skirts and boots didn ' t seem odd when seen on campus. Fashions opened doors into the past. Skirts were lengthened; lace was seen; cowl necklines appeared. Vests and pjitter returned, accompanied by pastel shades and hues. Hawaiian floweres were placed behind California ears . Trends seemed to have taken a step backward to canture each person ' s ovm style and whim through his or her own apparel. Yet, belii ' nd it all lurked the pood old steadies like Levis, Dittos, tennies , earth shoes, clogs, thongs, and of course, T-shirts, blank or pictured. Arlington students competed among themselves, the pacesetters and the bums-silently and without hostility. Not everyone played the game, but enough to keep the compe- tition going. Others dressed for that special someone, scheming trying to catch an eye. Dressing cool or chic, fancy or flowered, and sometimes, forgetting ■Pashion for corn-Port . The nation was stunned and saddened at the death of Elvis Presley in August of 1977. More than one generation of fans holds a clear memory of the " King of Rock-N- Roll. " Questions and mystery still surrounds the man who became a legend. Soon after the death of Elvis, Bing Crosby, another of the great entertainers passed away. He left a legacy of movies, specials, recordings, and vast memories filled with talent and song. 17 ' :s ' California ' s drought definitely ended this year when over two months of alternating sun and rain opened the doors to second semester. Mud slides, closed roads, and flooding occurred in Riverside, as rain-soaked students struggled across a soggy campus to second semester classes. Some preferred to " shoe ski " across the muddy grass, while others only wanted to keep from falling. Thoughts of summer and spring vacation returned as Arlington and California waited for the storms to end. Students remembered and lo oked forward to days at the river, the beach, or in Mexico. They reminisced about past spring vacations and wondered if upcoming plans would be rained out. In the past, second semester was full of days of swimming, shorts, baseball, and gymnastics. Now there were no thoughts about the beach, comparing tans, and getting out of school. It didn ' t seem as though these memories could ever happen as January and February rained their slow way past. Would it rain on the prom at the Ontario Speedway, and what about that promised walk on the beach? What about " Grad Nite " and graduation? Would the days to kick back and get a tan never come? Arlington ' s students wondered, frustratingly waiting it out. li Bonnie Starr makes her point during a senior class meet- ing. 2.

A lot of hard work and time went into the building of the junior class. The class ' s unique way of working together wasn ' t hard to see when they pulled their sweep- stakes winning float, " ' 79 Rocks On " down Magnolia Avenue in bare feet, and showing their class spirit by chanting to the beat of a bongo drum Chocolate chip cookies, pies, and carnations were all a part of this year ' s fund raising. The bake- sales were held to pay for float building materials, while the car- nation sale helped pay for the prom. The carnations had secret messages to boyfriends, girlfriends, and sweethearts; they were delivered during advisory period on Valentine ' s Day. Many suggestions were made on where to have the prom, and after many hours of searching and checking, the prom site was picked. The prom was held at Victory Circle East at the Ontario Motor Speedway. Barry Manilow ' s popular song, " Looks Like We Made It " was this year ' s prom theme. Paula Koenig, the president of the junior class, brought this year together and kept it going. Paula was one of the reasons the ' 78 junior class achieved the many goals that they did. The class of ' 79, the last graduating class of the seventies, is looking from every side to every angle, searching for the key to unlock the door to their future. 52 Troy Abncy Ann Abraham Terry Albrecht James Al laire Brad Al I en Robert Al Icn Maria Alvarez Roxanne Anaya Randy Anderson Debra Arevalo Greg Arias Socorro Arreola Debbie Atchinson Brenda Auer Eve I yn Au 1 1 Mario Ayala Lavaun Barclay Barrel Barton Carrie Bashaw Be I inda Beach Dennis Beals Lance Beals Ted Beckwith M.

FLOAT SCIENCE ENTHUSIASTS R.O.T.C. IT TAKES MORE THAN THE SHIFTING OF Riverside ' s only motocross team was short termed this year because of lack of insurance for the team. After the termination of the teams insurance with the Corona Raceway, motocross asked for coverage by the school district, but the club was turned down because of the cost due to high risk. Racing continued, however, on an individual basis with each rider having his or her ov m insurance. Participating members were: Lani Anderson, Randy Anderson, Debbie Atchison, Bob Berney, Al Chiuminatta, Fred Canover, Mark Dwyer, Janet Grisham, Eddy Peace, Brian Pirn, Terry McCreery , Stacy Randall, Robert Robertson, Tony Snow, Scott Uhls, and Marty Wolford. 74 1.

Sponsored by: Richard Reed FIGURES OF You may think that since 1975 the Drama Club has hidden in the auditorium. We knew they existed, but few stepped in to see the practices and the building of the sets. IVhen funds were needed, who helped raise the money? It was the club who raised money for the department, plays, and to decorate the haunted house. In addition to the club, most are enrolled in one or more periods of drama. This necessitates extra time after school beyond the Wednesday afternoon meetings. The ' 77- ' 78 season included a part in the Christmas Concert, and the prod uctions of " The Odd Couple " and " A Children ' s Hour. " Candids from " The Odd Couple. 76 m M The speech team, so newly formed, started its second year larger and better prepared. In addition to practicing and learning speech skills, it took guts to participate. When it was time to compete, they came through before the judges with great enthusiasm.

After the Simbi Kali staff was complete, textbooks, training, hours after school, and production began. Words like flat, pica, and layout took on meaning. Jana Stevens, Cindy Randolph, Tracy Holman, and Tim Dull attended a week-long conference in San Diego during August. Fourteen staffers participated in a weekend Publications ' Okt oberfest in Torrance; other Saturdays were spent in conferences between San Diego and Los Angeles. It took time to sell ads and year- books, promote, distribute, and write. After choosing Josten American as the publisher, the staff began work on the full paste-up yearbook. Yearbook is deadline headaches, a theme, lots of work, and fun; it ' s a memory of the 1977-1978 year brought together for Arlington High School by an enthusiastic Simba Kali staff and editors Cindy Randolph and Tracy Walters. 1 .

Running the paper on their own, planning layouts, selling advertisements, and meeting production deadlines keeps Mane Thing staffers busy, and slightly insane. Steve Bailey, this year ' s managing editor, was a hard, but efficient, task master according to advisor, Jeano Gales. The Editorial Board decides on topics by brainstorming and discussing story topics of current interest. Assignments are made and deadlines set according to the production schedule. Reporters research information, hold interviews, and write copy. Section editors must plan carefully in order to assign pictures to be taken by the photographers and draw, up preliminary layouts. Jeano Gales has advised the staff since Arlington High School opened its doors. Being on the staff involves work, knowledge, responsibility, a sense of humor, and an insight into the interests, need happenii a . and ways of Arlington High School ' s campus vl I I . K.

Having to go around and ask for certain people to sign a green paper hand? Sound like FFA? It is! Opening doors into the agricultural future for students is important. They compete at fairs where competition is not limited to sheep, cows, goats, and other animals, but also includes judging chickens, plants, sewing, art, and believe it or not, table setting. Just about everything you can imagine. At Arlington ' s agricultural department on " fitting day, " the animals are readied for the fairs; there ' s a Christmas tree sale in December, plants are grown for sale, and pens are built for livestock. By the time classwork and homework are included, there ' s obviously a full worklist. But there ' s fun too... all learning and growing experiences for the students involved!

Arlington ' s 1977-1978 band marched onto the field with increased membership, higher spirits, and a new advisor, Mr. Jim Downs. Many of the band ' s accomplishments and enthusiasm are attributed to his leadership. Mr. Downs came from Faye Russ Junior High to find a group of dedicated, progressive students whose quality balanced their quantity. The band participated in half-times, parades, concertSj pep rallies, and fund raisers. While practicing, the band has been marching with the tall flag and banner girls right down Irving street and between the cars in the student parking lot. The band plays its own tune; it ' s larger, still growing, and yet at the same time, it ' s the open door into the spirit of the students and school for which they march and play. 92 93 INTRODUCING THE ' 78 SENIORS LENTED 96 Today ' s senior is a composite of many unique characteristics. Independent, robust, and motivated are all adjectives that effectively describe the Arlington High senior, as well as the words portrayed by the pictures on this page. The members of this class can be justly proud of their collective accomplishments in the years leading to graduation. There is special merit in having maintained emotional stability through the pressures of adolescence, examinations, college applications, and Friday nights. One can have great confidence in the class of 1978. Rest assured that they ' ll be successful in the world of tomorrow. " When I ' in down and really depressed, I just remember there are others worse off than I. Then I don ' t feel so bad.

The Advanced Placement Hnglish Program (APE), which is a part of many high schools, involves placing seniors in accelerated academic courses and grants them 1(1 units of college credit, provided they pass an exam given at the end of the year. This year ' s participants, led by task- master Patrick Agnew, were Mary Jane Bailey, Anne Bohr, Diane Charlet, Stacie Dotson, Laura dodfrey, Tony Gutierrez, Karen llamm, Ruth lloos, Shahin Javaheri, Paul .Johnson, Cindy Kreuer, Donna McAlinden, Cathy flerrill, Theresa Purdot, Cindy Randolph, Jana Stevens, Mark Turton, and Tracy Walters. The course of study, to the dismay of many of the students, included in depth essay writing, book reviews, vocabulary, and the reading of novels and short stories.

Quiclly, you glance around the room, inching your way tlirough the door to your car. Later that day, the American Government test sche- duled for the next period sounds unap- pealing, so you figure you ' ll ditch and take the test the next week. Sound fam- iliar? If this person is you, you have most likely become a victim of the wide- spread disease, commonly known as " :-enior- itis " . Symptoms of the malady occur to the unsuspecting student during his final year; sophomores and juniors cannot be afflicted with this disease. for those underclassmen, the lable of " laziness " fits adequately. " Senioritis can be detected by the trained and untrained eye alike; the symptoms include lack of motivation, a desire to sleep in the mornings, and over exaggerated feelings of " seniority " . Luckily, this condition tends to disap- pear with time.

It is said that practice makes perfect, and if .this proves true, then the average senior will have the qualifications to be- come a professional applicant. One advantage of the application is that it gives the applicant a better perspective for future plans; the disadvantage is that ap- plying takes much time away from homework, socializing, and television. Some of the forms that most seniors fill out during the course of the year are for fin- ancial aid, applications for colleges and un- iversities, vocational training, SAT, ACH, and ACT, rings, announcements, senior portraits, and cap and gown.

This year ' s panel, well- versed in science, literature, and history, was led by advisor Mike Montano and consisted of seniors Steve Bailey, Anne Bohr, Stacie Dot son, and Ruth iloos. Many evenings were spent in prac- tice, and a few practice meets were arranged. This pre- pared the team for competition on April 22-23 at the Univer- sity of California, Riverside, with other local high schools. Scholarships of $750 were given to the schools of the first and second place winning teams.

The high school-university program designed for seniors who have already met the University of California requirements, allows these students to take a course at UCR. " It ' s a way to become introduced to College work and makes it easier for us next year, " says Cindy Kreuer, involved in the program.

S-U-P-E-R WE ARE THE... " S-u-r-ii-R wi; ARi; Tin; supurstars, " was just one of the many popular cheers used by the Varsity Cheerleaders this year. The ' 77- ' 78 Varsity Cheerleaders were: Viki Vranesh, Lisa Hatton, Patty Carter, Stephanie Siegle, Bobbi Remington, Julie Thinnes, and Karen O ' Brien. The year included such things as cheering at the football games and basketball games, and doing funny skits at several of the pep rallies. .SJ A ' ,cP w V V c r- ,e i. r ' o vV sAT O- ' o vJ .

She also participated in pep rally activities. ( _ yi WE ' VE GOT SPIRIT YES, WE DO SPIRIT was the word for Arlington ' s ' 77- ' 78 junior varsity cheerleading squad composed of Linda Thorpe, Jennifer McCreery, Sandy Danko, Denise Fleury, Stephanie Lewis, and Captain Cathy Camacho. Three of the girls had freshman cheerleading experience; this helped a great deal in making up routines. During summer school the squad made up chants and routines for the upcoming football season. They also attended Hibbard ' s Camp where they learned new and useful techniques of cheering that were used this year. The J.V. ' s other activities consisted of competing for their school in the Riverside City Competition and the Miss Drill Team U.S.A. competition. 124 " B-0-O-G-I-E! That ' s the way we spell boogie, " was the freshman cheerleaders ' favorite cheer. During summer school the squad, con- sisting of Karin Danko, Roxane Carlos, and Kori Sinerson, picked their captain Renee Petroff and co-captain Lori Callahan. They attended summer clinic at Hibbard ' s Camp where they won spirit ribbons. The freshman squad found that being a cheerleader in high school can be very challenging and exciting, especially if it is your first year. The freshman squad attended competitions, including the city competition and Miss Drill Team U.S.A. 125 POM ' N ' FLAG You can always recognize Arl- ington ' s pom-pon girls by their big ' .oUl pom-pons bouncing in the air. Captain Celeste Arellano, co-cap- tain Carrie Bashaw, Jeri Brandon, Tisha Chavez, Meg Coupe, Lois Llewellyn, Ronda Magnuson, and Cindy Thomas were picked for the squad. They attended clinic at Hibbard ' s Camp and brought home a ird-place trophy and a spirit award. The pom-pon girls performed at pep rallies and also presented skits. A second place was earned during competition at RCC. The squad also competed at the Saddleback and Miss Drill Team U.S. A competitions. GET IT TOGETHER With flags flyin ' high, the flag girls worked hard for a reward- ing year. They performed well at all football games and at pep ral- lies. The six-member squad, Jill Erskin, Debbie Higa, Shelli Silver, Lorraine Acosta, Cheryl Cook, and captain Susie Quesada attended clinic at Hibbard ' s Camp. The girls flagged their way to a third place at city competition with a routine to the popular music of the film " Rocky. " They also comp- eted at other competitions, in- cluding Miss Drill Team U.S.A. 126 127 LET US ENTERTAIN YOU Arlington ' s ' 77- ' 78 drill team began in June when over sixty girls tried out. Forty-five were selected. Little did they know that this was the beginning of a very promising year! Summer school started and so did daily practices for the team. Long hours were spent in the sun practicing kick routines, jazz routines, and military drills. Drill team cap- tain Kelli Mitchell, and two co-captains Lynn Jones and Tracey Tyson, were also elected during this time. Thirteen girls attended clinic in Santa Barbara. They brought home a grand total of three trophies and forty-eight superior ribbons, along with great hopes and ideas for the upcoming year. Tracey Tyson was voted " Miss Super Sensational " by the U.S.A. clinic in- structors; she also received an offer to be an instructor for the ' 78 summer clinic. The drill team ' s first half-time was a tremendous success. The team excited the crowd with a jazz and novelty routine to the theme from the movie " Star Wars.

After splitting two non-league games, the Lions opened league play with victories over Palm Springs and hapless Rubidoux before suffering a heartbreaking defeat to the North Huskies in the waning seconds of the game. Arlington bounced back, however, scoring a closing second victory of its own over Norco for an exciting Homecoming win. V fhen coupled with a Lion victory over Ramona the next week, Arlington was in the playoffs. The Lions closed out league play with losses to Colton and champion Poly. Friday, November IS marked the opening of the C.I.F. playoffs. The Lions drew tough Villa Park, who despite their 6-5 record, were ranked high in the 3A conference poll. Villa Park knocked Arlington out with a 31-6 victory. Front Row; John Yturri.Mark Robson,Jeff Lynch, Mike Johnson, Phil Dabney,Greg Arias, Derek Robbins, Vince Fierro.

Arlington .football returned to its traditional year-end role this season a C.I.F. playoff -bound team. The Lions earned a berth in the playoffs for the fourth time in five years by placing third in the rugged Ivy League with a 5-4 regular season record. Originally predicted by many to be near the cellar, Arlinton became the " surprise " team of the league and were in the hunt for the championship until the eighth game. Offensively, Arlington was led by All-Ivy tailback Vince Fierro, a 5 ' 4 " junior who accumulated just shy of 1000 yards during the regular season. Little Fierro was also honored as the PRESS-ENTERPRISE Prep Athlete of the Week for his 190-yard performance against North. Quarterback Jay Dabney, running back Ed Luna, and guard Dave Montgomery took places on the All-Ivy Second Team. When the opponents had the ball, a trio of All-Ivy league seniors, linemen Steve Bailey and Russell Kitchen and linebacker Ed Luna, spearheaded the defensive charge. 132 1.

Football team, which practiced about nine hours a week was a solid football team that devastated its opponents. Accord- ing to Coach Jack Harrison, " The team played hard, practiced hard, and deserved to win every game. " Offensively, the team was led by sophomore Joe Torchia, who was a newcomer to the school . Running backs Doug Reynolds and Vince Perkins also had a lot to do with the offensive power which scored a total of 159 points in its first five games. Defensively, the team was led by sophomore linebacker Bret Dodson. The defense was brutal, allowing only an average of 7 points a game. m. 1 fc¥jg B •« |Atf H P H HH t 1 G ri ' . 1 - P « MB a ifl H V H l j j l 1 ™.,.

However, records can be deceiving. According to Coach Sam Amicone, the team steadily im- proved each week. " Even with a losing season, " he stated, " this team learned more football than some of the others. " The hard practice of nine to twelve hours paid off as the team triumphed to take three of their last four games. " It took a lot of class to stick it out, " said the coach. " Under those circumstances, the easiest thing to do was quit, but they never did. " 137 rrrrr ' ••titt f H2O POLO TREADS WATER The Varsity Waterpolo team, which was hampered by illness and injury early in the year, had a rather disappointing season sta- tistically. However, the team gained some much needed experi- ence by playing some of the most powerful teams in the area. Bruce Reed, the only senior on the squad, was the captain, with Tom Hobbs being the co-captain. The J.V. team experienced a few of the same problems as the Varsity. Led by captain Russell Fullingham and co-captain Darren Jones, the team highlighted their season with wins over Pacific and Eisenhower. Each of the teams was coach- ed by Mike Nickless, and each practiced an average of eighteen hours a week. i WM B tfK Varsity Waterpolo Front Row; Tom Hobbs, Bruce Reed, Joe Milligan.

Led by junior Tom Hays, the Varsity squad re- bounded from a poor start to finish the season with a respectable 4-3 record. Coach Steve Wyper blamed the poor start on " the loss of our four top runners before the season started, due to sickness or injury. " 1. Team members warm up before the race. 2. Sophomore Greg Good crosses the bridge at Colton. 3. Dave Rozonsky checks his time. 4. Tom Hays puffs to the finish line. 5. Carols, Lowe and Herkelrath, enjoy a drink after the face. 6. The Varsity runners check out the course before their race. 7. " And they ' re off and running! " 140 KEEP ON TRUCKIN ' Four girls out of the ten who initially signed up for cross-country decided they were tough enough for this grueling sport. So one more year passed by without a team for girls because seven runners are needed to make a team eligible to run. By practicing fourteen to seventeen hours a week, th6se girls, Carol Lowe, Carol Herkelrath, Connie Brodhead, and Mary Lomayesva, tackled the rough terrain of the tracks and survived the tiredness and pain that accompanies long-distance running even though they were short three runners. Hopefully in the years to come, more girls will accept the challenges of cross-country and enable Arlington to have a competing girls ' team. 141 i VOLLEYBALL SUFFERS FROM The Varsity Volleyball team, coached by Michelle D ' Ascanio, had a most unusual season. Led by seniors Vicki Schulte and Jennie Jennings, the team was described as, " . . .highly intelligent and capable of good understanding. " However, things never quite seemed to come together for the girls. The coach sunmicd things up by saying, " There was a lot of talent on the team, and all players had areas of play that were impressive. If only we could have performed at our best on the same day, our won-loss record would have been much better. " On the other hand, the J.V. team improved both their record and their play over last season. However, one was most impressed with the enthusiasm with which the team played. " Although they didn ' t win much, they still had a good time, " said coach Michelle Amicone. One reason for this could have been the presence of captain Gloria Harris who had a way of spreading enthusiam throughout the squad.

ALL TOO MANY LOVE MATCHES These young swingers were led by new cojlch, Tom Allen. The fifteen girls scrambled across the courts trying to return the shots hit hard by their opponents. It was a very young team consisting of only two seniors with over half of the total made up of new members. The main barrier to their success was inex- perience, something that can hopefully be overcome with more practice and more matches. Nevertheless, the season proved to be a worthwhile one, with each player experiencing the agony of defeat and, in a few instances, the thrill of victory.

There is no longer such a thing as a " letterman " wearing a " letterman ' s jacket. " Instead, there are " letterpeople " wearing " letter jackets. " Title IX (d) reads as follows: " No person shall on the basis of sex be excluded from participation in or denied the benefits of any academic, extra-curricular, re- search, occupational training program or activity. " Some things have remained unchanged. The guys still buy jackets and the girls buy sweaters, although a few now buy a special girl ' s jacket and have their name em- blazoned on the hood. SHARPSHOOTERS EYE SUCCESSFUL SEASON . . . Led by the cry of " DEFENSE! " the Varsity Basketball Team completed the ' 77- ' 78 season with an overall record of 16-6, thus becoming the winningest team in Arlington ' s five year history. The Lions got off to a sizzling start with a victory over Moreno Valley, a third place finish in the George Ingall ' s Tournament, a victory over Norte Vista, and a fifth place finish in the sixteen-team Riverside County Basketball Tournament. With only Corona and Poly spoiling an otherwise perfect record, the Lions entered the Ivy League season with a 7-2 mark. The Lions started league play with a win over Palm Springs, then dropped back-to-back contests to Rubidoux and North. Arlington rebounded for wins over Norco, Ramona, and Colton before ending the first round with a loss to Poly. The second round of play was almost a carbon copy of the first, but the Lions beat Rubidoux. 1. Senior Dave Rozonsky has also lettered in track. 2. Jay Dabney led Arlington in assists. 3. Larry Pim was tlic Lions ' toughest defender. 4. The word " slow " was not in Mike Parillo ' s vocabulary. 5. Senior Craig Petroff missed most of the season with an ankle injury. 6. Senior .James Tisdale played well in li i s first year of Arlington basketball. 7. Six foot, six inch Jeff Seevers was a BIG part of the Lion attack. S. Many of Jim Hyatt ' s points came on layups like this one. 9. Coach Arellano had a reason to smile, despite being " helped " into the showers, after the Lions defeated Rubidoux. - WM AND NEARLY GAIN CIF BERTH The I. ions ended league play with a 9-5 record, which earned them a fourth place finish, miss- ing the C.T.r. playoffs by one game . The team worked long and hard to reach their goal, a berth into C.T.F. r.ven though they missed that dream, they have set a goal precedent for future teams to follow. Arlington High is proud of the ' 77- ' 78 Lions. 1. Defense carried the Lions through most 01 the season. 2. Team Captain Terry Brush won a spot on the All-Ivy League team. 3. Mike Parillo shows his free throw form. 4. " Jimbo " Hyatt lays it up over an onrushing opponent. 5.

BATTLES FOR SHARE OF LEAGUE TITLE Led by Captain Todd Greenough and high scorers Ty Dabney and Mark Schulte, the J.V. basketball team battled for a share of the Ivy League title with North. Their coaches, Tom Buck and Alan Odell, attributed the team ' s success to a strong defense, which was headed by Ronnie Blevins, and a strong bench. The J.V. ' s had an overall record of 21-3 and an Ivy League mark of 12-2. J.V. Basketball Team First Row: Ty Dabney, Kelly Winters, Mark Bowyer, Ronnie Blevins, Dave Drexler.

Junior Todd Greenough was the team ' s leading rebounder. 7. Guard Mark Bowyer and Ty Dabney hassled the opposition many times this season. 151 m FROSH-SOPH CONTINUE WINNING WAYS Arlington ' s Frosh-Soph teams have had a tradition of very suc- cessful seasons. In fact, for the last three years the team has won the league title twice and tied for the title once. This year ' s team, led by Coaches Paul Masi and Todd Wales, had a very rewarding season with an overall record of 19-3. The young team gained valuable experience and knowledge that will be useful for future varsity play. The team was led in scoring by Jeff Boldt and Chris Harper, in rebounding by Brian Smith, and in enthusiasm by Vince Perkins. 153 SOCCER GETS A KICK OUT OF LEAGUE The Lions ' soccer team started out the season with a new coach, Denver Drieberg. Practicing on the average of three hours per day, at times early in the morning, the team ' s main obstacle was inexper- ience. They did much better than expected by working hard together as a team and supporting each other which was so imperative in a team situation such as soccer. Led by their captains Joe Giordano and Greg Otjen, they tied two games. The J.V. team was also under Coach Drieberg and won one game. Both teams have great potential and this past season was a great learning experience for them. 154 Front Row: Doug Beals, Arthur Clark, Robert Rhind, John Hudson, Vinc-c Fredhorti, Robert Fisher, Jeff Chebahtah, Henry Velasquez, Glenn Cachianes, Pat Ralston.

Bill St. George, sweated to a fourth place at the Ivv League championship meet during the 1977-1978 season. The exceptional number of underclassmen on varsity made this team especially unique. Practicing approximately fifteen and a half hours per week, they improved with each match, learning more moves and the technicaiV ■ i es associated with the sport . The wrestlers were led by Captain Dennis Jeter and Vince Fierro and Art Fierro, who were captains and city champs. At the Ivy League Championship, James Harding, at 98 pounds, Vince Fierro, at 123 pounds, and Art Fierro, at 106 pounds, won in their respective weight classes, becoming Ivy League Champs and getting the opportunity to wrestle in the C.I.F. Championships. Dennis Jeter, 178 pounds, and Ken Bailey, heavyweight, came in second at the Ivy League Championship meet. The J.V. team, also coached by Gibson and St. George, gained much needed experience for future wrestling matches. Captains were Larry Main and Kirk Warrick. 156 Varsity Wrestling Team Front Row: Jim Keeney, Ron Hoquist, Vince Fierro, Ruben Rodriguez, Art Fierro, James Harding.

Platner has won all but one of his races and broken his own league re- cords. Hobbs has won most of his races, and Joe Milligan is the sec- ond fastest breastroker in the In- land Empire. Other impressive swim- mers included Joe Ortiz and Chris Soholt. The team was coached by Mike Nickless. The members of the swim team were: David Bailey, Ted Beckwith, Doug Cato, Art Clark, Chuck Harris, Tom Hobbs, Tim Lovell, Joe Milligan, Bob Minning, Ken Moody, Joe Moore, Curt Neal , Joe Ortiz, Chris Platner, Bruce Reed, Scott Snyder and Chris Soholt. 158 LiCv ' .A» MIn GIRLS SHOOT FOR SUCCESS Hard working and spirited, the Girls ' Varsity Basketball Team had a very encouraging year, despite the problem of injuries at the beginning of the year to two outstanding play- ers, Sandy Gibbons and Jenny Jennings, " The team is very young, most- ly tenth graders, " said Coach Bud Kane, " and if they stick together for the rest of their time here at Arlington, we will have a fantastic team in the up-coming years. " Sophomore Linda Harris led the team, averaging fifteen points a game. The girls began their season well with wins against Bloomington and rival Ramona.

When rain turned their baseball diamond into a lake, the Arlington Varsity Baseball Team, coached by Jack Harrison and Brian Dunaj , took refuge in the school gymnasium where it worked hard to prepare for the up- coming season. In the gym, the Lions were forced to work on the finer points of their game: rundown plays, signals, and pitching. The season arrived, and the team, consisting of eleven seniors and four underclassmen, gave the op- position fits from the start. The Lions ' ferocious pitching all but took the bats out of the opposing batters hands. However, the varsity batters, still rusty from the lack of batting practice, took longer to show their superior form. The Lions relied on pitching and defense to keep in the early season games, but as the season progressed they had found the flaws in their hitting styles and were playing su- perior baseball.

The team set this pace not only with talent, but with a spirit of oneness and dedication. Leading the athletes were coaches Steve Wyper, Richard Diamond, John Hoyer, Al Steele, and John Corona. Under their watchful eyes, the team scored record times and upsets over such schools as North, Norte Vista, and Ramona. 172 1.

Thanks to the tough practices led by coaches Steve Wyper, John Iloyer, Richard Diamond, and Al Steele, the team grew stronger day by day. There were many new faces, but soon the new and old were as spirited as one. Each ath- lete did his best for the team and gave support to the other athletes. Track and field includes a great number of events. In addition to the sprints, hurdles, and high jump, which are familiar to most people, there are the long jump, discus throw, pole vault, shot put, and relay races. :-} i Vince Perkins and Paul Roa strut their stuff.

The team played well, but not quite up to the expectations of the coaches. However, number one player, Howard Campbell, was forced to miss the entire season with a broken arm. According to Coach Allen, the team should be a serious contender next year.

GOLF SWINGS INTO ACTION Composed of six players, the golf team, coached by Chuck Suder, improved their scores tremendously over last year. " Our scores are much better this season than they were last year, " said Suder, " and I expected them to be because we have better golfers. " Suder recognized Chris Brungart as the outstanding member of the team. " He was the fourth best player in the Ivy League last year as a freshman. He has a bright future ahead.

GIBSON RAY BERRY RETIRES Mr. Ray Berry will be retiring July 1 of this year after ten years as superintendent of the Riverside Unified School District and more then thirty years in public education. This is his personal message to the student body of Arlington High School . " I was superintendent of schools when Arlington High be- gan. It will be the last new one for which I have responsi- bility because I am retiring in July. It is a good one to quit on because 1 honestly believe that it is going to be the best. " " Arlington is well-designed and attractive. It is grow- ing, and its students and their families become more ardent and committed scholars and staunch supporters of all programs every day. " " Dr. Flores and Mrs. Jennings have given Arlington High a great start as strong principals, and the other staff mem- bers add even more to the school ' s image and offerings. " " I intend to stick around and watch Arlington High rise to the top--rooting all the way!

Usually to the coun- selors, of course: Kay Daugherty, Jim Hill, Karen Lee, and Tom Schultz. With their help, students find out about college and graduation requirements. If a student needs to know where or what time to be in class or has an attendance-related problem, Nick Rodillas is the attendance counselor. Students have appreciated the personal approach provided through the guidance department. 191 THE PEOPLE WHC • ttendancc Secretaries Admin.

With the help of the teaching staff of Arlington, many students have accomplished their goals. The teachers cared eno ugh about individual students to take the time to help the student develop abilities and to understand. Remember that math help before or after school , or spending lunch periods getting down the new princi- ples in science, and that special attention that coaches gave. In the classes, teachers tried to teach so that the lessons were interesting as well as beneficial to the students. Teachers tried to meet the students ' needs in special areas; that ' s what it ' s all about- learning! Teaching is only teaching when someone learns, and a big part of teaching is caring. Many of the Arlington teachers cared, and because of this, for both the teachers and the students, this has been a year of learning. 205 INDUSTRIAL COMMERCIAL mmm ' Szn ed ELECTRIC 2021 3rd St. Unit i Riverside, CA 92507 (714) 684-9261 ?iy LAFAYETTE RADIO ELECTRONICS Congratulations to the Seniors of 1978 Svri-SS Dairy 4221 Buchanan Phone: 689-2300 Radio haek 3548 Adams St. Riverside, Ca. 92504 Phone: 687-2010 BOB ' S VACUUM SEWING MACHINE SUPPLY 683-4330 Royal Vacuums BERNINA - NEUCO - PFAFF - SEWING MACHINE TOM CARROL-U MANAGER ORVAL SLONE ASST.

There will be memories of the classes we had to take, our friends, and teachers from whom we learned. The key to understanding the world ahead of us will come from these very same friends, teachers, and experiences. Right now is the time for us to contemplate the decisions and choices we will make in the future. This school year started with a new array of classes, teach- ers, and administrators, including Principal Liz Jennings, and Vice-principal Stan Conerly. Because of the increased enroll- ment of students, counselors Jim Hill, Tom Schultz, and eight new teachers came to AllS. Scholastically, this year ' s students enrolled in some new and interesting classes. Liter- ature Studies, Home Gardening, and Consumer Math are just three examples. This year ' s freshmen and sophmores were the first to take competency tests for gradu- ation. Many athletes participated in a wide range of sports and intra mural teams. The Lions had some great accomplishments; there was the trip to GIF for football, the first year for an official girls ' track team, and it was the first year a girl participa- ted on the varsity soccer team. Because of the relationships, studies, and sports of our school, students this year and for years to come, will leave eager to face life and its chal- lenges. 226 TOMORROW F ll 1 J KH h W) 1 J 9_ 227 TODAY 228 IS THE KEY ?.29 O IT 230 231 and cfL atz , izthing i6 OMjpfio- .
