In past years Bedford seemed to suf-
fer from a lack of spirit and unity
among the student body, but in 1983
the tide turned and the entire school
seemed to be caught up in the
excitement of regame activities. What
caused this cliange? Chris Zawacki,
captain of the Varsity Football
Cheerleaders said, "The cheerleaders
worked harder to motivate spirit at ep
rallies. There were also more leaders
in the junior and senior classes. Every-
one really helped, though."
Spirit Days helped to attract new
groups of students, gettin more people
than ever before invo ved in spirit
raising activities. Ideas for these days
ranged from "Bandana Day" t

days was to get a wider cross-section of
students involved in school spirit. Da s

. ......t. . if of student spirit grew to near epidemic
proportions. The first wave hit with the
sale of Bearcat pointer hats sponsored
by the Band. Then came the decorating
of the halls. The revival of the
Homecoming Dance was rosting on
the cake and made the wee a success.
Some of the effects of spirit weelf
will be with us permanently. Remem-
ber the Bearcat painted on the South
House hallway during Spirit Week by
the sophomores? It will soon be perma-
nently replaced by colored tiles in the
form of a Bearcat.
School spirit is more than a visual
form of school loyalty, but also a
feeling or belief in each other. As Mrs.
Ferone said, "Spirit isn't only showing
up for games or decorating alls. It is
an attitude toward each other."

designed to increase student spirit was the

R DREAMS ARE MAGIC
On Thursday night, October 20,
spirit filled the air in Bearcat Ter-
ritory as Homecoming '83 was un-
derway. Many gathered to see the
parade make its way down Colum-
bus Rd. to the BHS field. Floats in
this year's parade included the
band's "Paint the Panthers", the
Sophomore's, "Zap Euclid", and
the Iunior's, "Return of the Cats"!
But, the Seniors proved triumph-
ant, as Iohn Pracejus announced
the Senior float, "We Care Bear-
cats" as the winner! "After 3 years
of losing," said Iim Duber, "It was
great to win!" The float was built at
the home of Senior class Vice-
President Mike Matranga, and had
it's ups and downs, with the theme
going through a number of changes,
and poor attendance at float ses-
sions until the last week. But, all at
once, the Seniors pulled it together
and finished the float two days ear-
ly. Senior Class President Kelli
O'Neill said "I found a lot of satis-
faction in the floats completion, but
I never felt a greater feeling of ac-
complishment then when I realized
we had won"!
This years annual Spirit Week
Events included "Punk Day, Hat
Day, and a Dress-up Day". BHS
clubs and organizations worked to-
gether and made banners and signs
to march in the parade, wishing
the Bearcats well, and every
hallway was decorated Green and
White, with Sophomores walking
away with the prize.
There was definitely electricity
in the air as the Cats took the field
on Friday night, and all assumed
that the past losses of the season
would be put behind them! The
Bearcats played a very emotionally
charged first half, scoring two
touchdowns due to the combined
efforts of all-purpose full-back Ron
Culpepper and Quarterback Pete
Krantz. But, in the final quarter,
the Cats went scoreless and lost
their intensity, leaving a 19-13
victory in the paws of the Euclid
Panthers. But, not even that could
tarnish Bearcat spirit.
1 2 HOMECOMING
Half-time brought a spectacular
show by our marching Bearcat
Band and the announcement of the
1983 Homecoming Queen, Bonnie
Buck! lt was a moment filled with
tears of happiness, as 1982 Queen
Teri Mizak handed down her
Bonnie commented on her
experience saying, "In the past
years, I've watched other lucky
girls enjoy the honor of becoming
Queen and have always wished
that someday it could be me. This
is a dream come true, and a night
I will always remember"! This
year's Homecoming court consisted
of Doreen Goga, Sally Houlahan,
and Debi Romito.
On October 22, Saturday of
HomeComing weekend, another
tradition was brought back to BHS
as a Homecoming dance was held
in honor of Bonnie and her court!
The dance was sponsored by NHS,
and Varsity B President Russ Coo-
per was Master of Ceremonies and
The escorts to the Queen and
her court were Ed Zahariwicz, Art
Curtis, Doug Tilden, and Paul
Tomanday, The dance was
successful, everyone danced and
seemed to have a great time! As
the evening came to a close,
Homecoming '83 ended on a high
note, providing many with memo-
ries and good times that will last a
life time and be cherished always!!!
FIRED UP, Getting riled up during the
Homecoming game is Iunior Tony Lopez,
number 34, who runs off the field after a su-
perbly executed play.
T.P.ed TUBAS. Wrapping up the tuba
section of the Bearcat Band with toilet pa-
per was Tim Wardlow's way of telling them
to clean up their act.
