The Varsity Football Cheerleaders raise their pam-pams high and ask the question, "Where's the spirit?" The spirit was in the student body as the pep rallies were highly attended. SPIRIT DAYS 11

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 y . f these days was to get a wider cross-section of students involved in school spirit. Da s such as "Green-and-White Day" rea ly helped to show support for our athletic teams. During Homecoming week the show CATCHI G THE SPIRIT f . ......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." 10 SPIRIT DAYS WILD TIMES, One of the many activities designed to increase student spirit was the decorating of the halls. The Seniors were assigned the area outside of the Senior So- cial Room and predicted, "It's gonna be wild." PUNK DAY. Bedford students turned New Wave for one day to show their spirit and support the football team. Freshman Mi- chelle Schneider gets in on the oct.

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 crown. 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 welcomed all. 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. Q , .ff f ' ff' f ' 55, W , l . 7 .fi
