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.
