The 1979 Comet football team experienced the ups and downs of a young football team. The season started rather slow for the Comets, but by the end of the season the Comets were playing outstanding foot ball. Our Seniors played very well and were supported well by our underclassmen. The Homecoming game against Gridley and the season finals against Wood land were both excellent football games. The squeakers against Chenoa, Dee Mack, and Leroy will also be remembered as highlights of the season. The 1979 team will long be remembered by the Coaching Staff as very hard workers and dedicated to the program. They are very fine young men, and indeed a pleasure to coach and be associated with!

The 1979-80 Student Council calendar was a busy one. The summer meeting was especially memorable at Feeney’s at Lake Bloomington. It didn’t seem possible that a year that began with so much fun could involve so much work. In September, El Paso hosted the Prairie 8 district workshop with about 100 students attending. Ann Pfister, district vice president, was in charge and everyone worked to make the day a huge success. Homecoming 1979 had a western flavor. The parade was capably handled by Kim Dehority while the games were done by Karen Zimmerman, who did a bang up job. Christmas soon followed - a “trying time” (first we tried this movie, then we tried that one) - but everyone was relieved that “The Sting" was the movie title and not the reaction to it. Dances were frequent and varied - remember Polaris, Kim as sweetheart, seeing Matt Cornell again, Jay as disc jockey, and KZ? We served lunch for the scholastic bowl contest, learning that we didn’t need as many onions, but 10 dozen donuts are too many. The year was not without learning experiences the workshops, district convention, state convention, and Chuck’s week at ICE in Spring-field increased our awareness of the importance of leadership and the activities of councils around the state. The year ended as it began - lots of fun at Comlara - a time of relaxation after a hectic year.

The 1979-80 Comets suffered through a 6-18 season. Inconsistent shooting and ball handling plagued them all season. Rebounding and defense were strong points throughout the year. The highlight of the season was winning the Consolation Championship of the Woodland Tournament.
Senior Marty Heller was captain, most valuable, best defensive, and led the team in assists and steals. Leading scorer was Junior Scott Sennott who was also selected to the Midstate conference 2nd team. The leading rebounder was Senior Greg Hunsaker.
Selected as Tri-Captains for 1980 81 were Scott Crump, Scott Sennott, and Dave Valentine. With five letterman returning, the Comets are looking forward to next season.

Considering this was the first year for girl’s basketball, the team finished with a remarkable 3-4 record. The girls improved drastically over the season despite a ridiculous schedule which had them play two games in five days then wait a month before playing again.
Junior Linda Hocker was easily the leading scorer with a 23.7 point per game average including games of 35 and 30 points. Her lowest game was 18 points. Linda was also leading rebounder with 6.6 a game. Freshman Steph Aeschliman was second leading scorer with 5.0 points a game with a high single effort of 16 points. Freshman Jodi DeKeyser was second leading rebounder with 5.6 a game.
As a team, El Paso averaged 39.6 points to their opponents 42.4. Best offensive effort came in their biggest win, a 59-47 victory over Lexington. Worst defeat and most points given up came in the 54 38 loss to Wenona. A 34 26 win over Low Point Washburn provided the best defensive effort.
Guard Kathy Hudson is the only regular to be lost to graduation (Steph Thielemann was out because of back injury), therefore the coming season looks encouraging. The girls are not only basketball players, but also well-rounded students.

The freshman dominated El Paso High girls’ track team had a reasonably successful season. The girls improved on last year’s dismal performance and could develop into a contending team in a couple of years. School records were set in three events and were threatened in three others. Marilyn Bauman set a record in the discus and Mara Bergquist set a record in the 440 yd. dash. Lori Messer was the most spectacular record setter, breaking the record in the mile four times. Her final best of 5:55.3 was 47 seconds faster than the record at the start of the season. Lori was also most valuable on the team and was leading scorer with 36‘ 4 points. Shot putter-hurdler Jodi DeKeyser was second in scoring with 29' 4 points and high jumper Barb Scott was third with 19 points. Track letters were awarded to senior Kathy Hudson, junior Ann Cleary, sophomore Barb Scott and freshman Lori Messer, Jodi DeKeyser, Marilyn Bauman, Julie Sutton, Sally Trunnell, Joy Rogers, Mara Bergquist and Amy Pinkham.

This year has proved to me that the saying “It’s the people who make a place” is true. I have been made so welcome and feel so much a part of EPHS that I will always regard El Paso as my second home. Words are inadequate to express what I feel but 1 want to thank everyone - you’ve made my year in the U.S. fantastic.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone, especially my friends and teachers, for their help, time and understanding throughout the year. You all have made this year one I’ll always remember.

•The day on which Matt achieved his 31-0 record coincided with his parent's 31st wedding anniversary!Coach’s Comments
The highlight of the 1979 1980 season has to be the State Championship effort of Matt Haas at the 112 lbs. weight division. This was not only the first State Championship in wrestling in El Paso’s history, but the first in any sport ever. Congratulations to Matt and best wishes for an even more successful college career.
The dual meet record was 118. The El Paso wrestling team won the Midstate Wrestling Invitational, was placed 3rd in the Flanagan Invitational and had three boys advance to the sectionals. They were, of course. Matt Haas, Barry Grubb, and Joe Franzen.
The wrestling team wishes to thank the cheerleaders for their loyal support and all the fans who came to cheer for the guys during the season.

The 1979-80 El Paso High School band began its performing season by marching in the annual Corn Festival parade. During the football season, the band performed at the five home games as well as the Homecoming parade. The pep band provided the entertainment during the home basketball games.
The concert season began with the Christmas concert. In February, they put on “An Evening at the Pops” which was full of surprises. In April, we took part in the IHSA band contest. In May, we went on tour to Saybrook and Tri Valley with a picnic in Peoria the next day and then we played for El Paso’s grade schoolers in the park. The season climaxed with the spring concert.
The jazz band was also active: playing on tour, for Kiwanis Club, and the Spring Swing.

The El Paso High School Chorus performed the first time during the 1979 80 school year at the Christmas Concert. The chorus presented a cantata “Unto Us A Child Is Born” with taped accompaniment at that concert.
In the spring, El Paso hosted the IHSA solo and ensemble contest in which 12 of our entrees received superior ratings and 12 received excellent ratings At the IHSA organizational contest, the newly selected Honors Chorus, Women’s Chorus, and Men’s Chorus each received Superior ratings. This marked the first time in 3 years that all 3 choruses received Superior ratings. From the results of the 2 contests. El Paso was ranked 8th among all Class C Schools.
The Modulations had an active year: performing for the Kiwa nis Club, at Corn Festival, on tour, and at both concerts. They completed their year with the Spring Swing concert.
The 125 voiced chorus climaxed their year by presenting a Spring Concert, going on a concert tour to Clinton, Chenoa, and Univeristy High School, and spending a day at Mariott’s Great America.
The chorus worked very hard this year. They have performed a variety of styles of music for many different audiences. They continue to grow and improve their performing excellence.

El Paso Wins Fifth Consecutive Mid State Championship
The 1980 track team finished their season at Eastern Illinois University at the State Track Meet. Overall the season was very successful as the Comets won their 5th straight Mid-State Conference Championship. Several new records were established. The 2 mile relay ran a 8:37.4 at the District meet to establish a new record. The runners on the relay were Matt Haas, Chuck Feeney, Bill Schifferer, and Greg Hunsaker. Marty Heller tied the High Hurdle mark at 14.9 and established a new record in the330 yd Hurdles at a 38:51 clocking and placed 4th in the state. Matt Haas set a new 880 yd record as he ran a 2.07:6.
The Comets also were undefeated in five dual meets and the Frosh Soph team won the Woodford County and placed second in the Conference.
The Seniors participating this season had an outstanding year. Kevin Armstrong, Mike Armstrong, Tom Armstrong, Matt Haas, Marty Heller, Greg Hunsaker, Kourosh Safrang, and Roger Schieber will be missed but the lower classmen coming up will have something to shoot for next year.
82 Marty qualified for the state meet on May 23. The class of 80 was disappointed he could not attend graduation but was proud of his accomplishments.

At 11:30 they were ‘revolving’ at Stouffer’s and eating strange foods. Then off to Six Flags! After a day filled with ghosts and goblins, the Screaming Eagle, and cotton candy, they were ready to head home; this time with a few extra “stuffed” passengers. They arrived back at good old El Paso at 2:15 a.m.!
SENIOR BREAKFAST - Thursday, May 22, 1980
