Susie back for the pass. The Main Event was held on November 7, 1980. Our Homecoming week started with morn- ing competitions. El Monte ' s top 5 girls competed in such activities as a lemon-eating contest, wheel- barrow race, three-legged race, pony-back ride and then the awesome event; the football through the hula-hoop. None of the girls made it so they got a creamy chocolate pie in the face! On Homecom- ing Day we had our usual car rally. Our 2 lunches were combined into one. Henry Acero ' s band played and our cheerleaders performed. The last competition was the egg-toss. The girls ' partners were: Rachel — Tony, Annette — Kyle, Susie — Anthony, Miriam — Gary, Eliza — Hector. Our famous football team did a tremendous job by knocking out Arroyo 30-6. During our half-time Rachel Villa was crowned Homecoming Queen 1980-1981. 17 m tmin o — I -o . .- ' - lateS -t .,., . Churias handing off to Mumbles. Rachers Banner.

A Broom for the Bride Linda, daughter of a socially pretentious mother, is set to marry Ernest, the mama ' s boy of a supposedly wealthy mother. Linda ' s ex-fiance , a reporter, turns up and sets his mind to breaking up this match. The wealthy Aunt of the family — they ' ve not seen her fo r many years — turns up and is mistaken by the flighty mother for the new maid; she is put to work. A crook, posing as a society reporter, enters the house with his niece; he is after some valuable letters known to him to be concealed behind a family painting. The reporter disguises himself as the Aunt from Boston; he disrupts the plans for the wedding and partially exposes some of the phony guests. 20 Is my eye shadow even Frosh Dance Concert Xmas Parade 22 This year the guvs were sr)ld h« ' f(ir - the girls, since the guys never buy the girls they figured that the gu s would want revenge.

" Tino was a big hit with his own special brand of pop and lock dancing.

The team was never defeated bv more than 5. points, except a loss to GIF runner-up, Arroyo. In league finals the Lions finished a respectable third. The highlight of the season was the individual performance of Fernando Velasquez who finished fiftft in the CIF Championship meet. The team will lose seniors Hector Ayala and Javier Ortiz. Returnim- leltermen will be Santiago Campcro, Hector Conde, Terry Esposito, Roy Oroz and Lorenzo Villanueva. Varsity Basketball Lions jump higher. Sandy dominates over opponent. El Monte taliung over strategy. 50 Jim Maldanado making a lay-up. This years Varsity squad raised a few eyebrows and turned a few heads. After get- ting off to a very poor start (0-6) the LIONS swept through 10 of their next 13 games, which was a pleasant surprise to El Monte followers. During that span, they won seven in a row. The teams first year head coach Bob Alaniz, along with assistant Dave Brooks, were very pleased with the progress of the squad. At the beginning of Mission Valley League play, the LIONS were picked to finish no better than fourth place. Led by seniors, and all league performers, Alex Roman and Jim Roberts, plus junior, San- tiago Campero, the team went through the first round of league play undefeated, they finished up with an 8-2 league record, second place and another trip to the C.I.F. playoffs. Returning to the playoffs was the primary goal of the team, especially since they were not suppossed to be at the top of the league race. During league play the LIONS surprised many people, especially their fans. Constantly playing above their ability to meet oncoming challenges, they held the banners of LION PRIDE high! Comprised of last years Jr. Varsity championship team, coach Alaniz ' s squad possessed once again their excellent all around team work and tenacious defense. Which has become a known trademark across the valley. Rounding out the first five were Seniors Johnny Calindo, Hector Urias, and Jim Roberts, all three of whom were the most consistent players throughtout the league play. Also valuable assets were reserves. Chuck Jeffery and Guard Fred Navarro. Their fine play along with Leonard Tucker, Jim Maldonado and Tom Guz- man signified the important aspect of team play. Thus never allow- ing the opponent to key on one player. 51 9 % «r4«» J.V.

The addition to the team of determined heavyweight Robert Becerra (5-1-1 in league) along with the excellent wrestling of the other upper weights like 188 pound Senior Gary Painter (22-6, 2nd in league), 170 pounder and 1981 League Champ Ray Olivas (23-4-1), and 203 pound Rich Whittington (20-9-1; 14 pins; sectionals qualifier) helped the team to a 7-5 overall record and a 4-3, 3rd place finish in league. The lions only losses were to quality teams with the exception of a 3-point upset loss to Rosemead, 32-35. El Monte capped off its season by an ex- citing 39-30 win over 1980 League Champ Alhambra in which the Lion upper weights — Olivas, Painter, Whittington, and Becerra — all pinned their opponents to cinch the victory! Other outstanding performances were: at 101 pounds. Senior Tony Gailen accumulated a record of 18-7 and 5-2 in league; ex- citing Sophomore prospect Joe Ramirez at 115 was 16-13 overall and 4-3 in league; Senior Rene Ruiz at 129 won 12 and lost 8; and at 141, Junior Ed Manriquez enjoyed a 4-3 record in league. Along with their dual meet success, the lions captured 23 individual places in major tournaments: Northview, Mira Costa, San Marcos, and Edgewood. CONGRATULATIONS, VARSITY WRESTLERS! A , „ ■ i.

Even so the team played well in the tough Rio Hondo league. Led by returning lettermen Javier Ortiz, Fer- nando Velesquez, and Armando Reyes, these young men have pulled together as a team and played .500 soccer throughout the season, at the time of this writing with 2 games remaining, the team record is 4 wins, 5 losses, and 1 tie, and is still a chance at a playoff spot. I would like to thank all these young men for a real fine effort. Thanks also to my assistant coach, Ricardo Heredia, who is a driving force in our team ' s success.

And in lime i e«iii ail be stars: I INMEMORIAM The entire District staff and student body of El Monte Hifjh School are sorrowed and stunned by the death of their real friend Mr. Callahan. As long as there is someone who was touched by Mr. Calla- han in his special way, then he will live forever in the hearts and minds of the people who are El Monte High School. And now a sad-happy note! Mr. Jack Edmondson, a fine counselor, is retiring on January 30th after serving 33 ' 2 years at El Monte High. This is sad, because we ' ll miss him; but it is happy because he deserves the chance to " stand down " after so many years of good work and pro- fessional service. Good luck Mr. Edmondson! 202 This year has been a super disaster! When you put people like Ruben " Curly Top " Avila; John " Mumbles, Jug Head, Worm, Fish Lips " Ramirez; Steve " Polanski, " Meyers; John " Dead Eye, Pop Eye, Ralph, Superstar " Garcia; Josh " Sex Drugs and Rock- N-Roll " Delgado; Tony " Pin " Gailen and his wife Rachel " Queen 1981 " Villa; Rudy " Kermit " Candelaria; Elsa " Vacco Promoter " Ruiz; Josie " Should Be Girls ' State " Ledesma; Susie " Never in Class " Delgado; Ann Marie " Always Lost " Kelly; Lisa " Gumby " Santa Cruz; Cindy " Attagirl " Attbery; Donna " Senior Section " Cruz; and last but not least the lady who does not like to be called Donna, " Donna " " Gunner " Gunstream, in the same classroom you get nothing but trouble. But nevertheless they all did a great job in meeting deadlines, (well maybe not all of them). But everybody tried and gave their best effort to make this book a success. I really want to thank everyone on the staff, not just for the work everyone did ( ' cause we did not do much) but for the awesome times we had in class such as World War III and Hostage Day. I would also like to thank the faculty and stu- dent body for a great four years at El Monte. I would appreciate if you have comments (good or bad) or any complaints dealing with the 1981 Annual please keep them to yourselves, because that ' s tough! And it ' s too late to do anything about it!! THANK YOU, (John " Smelly " Lomeli) EDITOR IN CHIEF iSitbettiaaji 204 " wpS f f 1 . ■? ■« l fitHdof 205 £U a He t ( Ina 852E.
