Strange how his mind refused to attach any importance to this event. Gust another rite of passage, kid) Familiar buildings glided by. Memories clung to him like the heavy snowflakes. How many classes had he rushed into late, after an evening of excesses? It was always " I ' ll worry about it tomorrow, " never believing for one moment that there was such a thing. He took another drag, the smoke mingling with his winter exhalation. A stranger passed him. They would never know each other now. Caffeine. That would clear his thoughts. He opened the door to the Conlon building, shaking the snow off his shoes, his long coat, his hair. Inside, the Coke machine relinquished a can of soda. He sat down heavily. Brain cells awoke to the poison in his system and he focused all his attention on the burnin g stub in his hand. The entire four years flashed by in a blur of images. (let go) All those faces, all those names. Every fact or emotion seemed instantly available to him. This one moment would be imprinted with flashbulb clarity for the rest of his life. He drew a deep breath. He breathed in oneness, never wanting to exhale. This oneness was never even asked for; just offered naturally. He " belonged " to his surroundings, just as he was leaving. The halls echoed his sentiment. (sorry kid, the party ' s over) CRRE F S-im Shut up. (time for someone else to take your place. They ' ll be where you are soon enough) His last final. (it ' s been going on for a long time. Time is just up) As these last thoughts came to him, a door opened. A familiar face called his name. He sat down to talk.

It is my great pleasure and the pleasure of my fellow class officers to be elected to SGA by you. . , . The word " Senior " reminds me of a day of the week. Monday you are a Freshmen, Tuesday you are a Sophomore, Wednesday you are a Junior and Thursday you are a Senior. Friday means see you next year. ... It seems only yesterday when we were climbing those 6 — and sometimes 7 — flights of stairs at Russell Towers when we first moved in. Remember when we first moved in? Your fears! I wonder what my roommates will be like? Will I get along with them? . . . Will I get the top bunk? . . . Remember the cafeteria? Remember eating out and forgetting the cafeteria? . . . 6- Lobby is the place where people talk, sleep, and miss class together. G-Lobby is where you would check you mail box 6 or 7 times in the same hour. Remember those times when you received no mail for weeks? You were sure someone was stealing yours! ... The other day I heard a song. It was a catchy tune and had a profound chorus: I ' m doing all right. I ' m getting good grades. The future is bright. I gotta wear shades. We are an optimistic generation. We have our troubles. No generation has faced more turmoil in family life, more change in attitudes toward the rules of behavior than we. We have grown into adults during a v ,iJmM i mm it ■ I VOTE row TALLARTI FOR SENIOR CLASS , PRESIDENT L VOICE E Atl ' .- times when stress has become a national disease. Yet we see a future so bright that we can joke about needing to wear shades, we are resilient. We don ' t need rose-colored glasses to see life. We live the good life, the moment, but we know happy moments pass quickly and must be savored. ... As we disperse into the world ... I hope we will not forget this happy moment when we were all the Class of 1988 and shared a common optimism about a bright future. I hope we work together to keep this moment, center it around our loyalty to Fitchburg State College, and remain together as a Class and reunite often under the alumni banner. The much needed Fitchburg state college Escort Service finally went into effect Monday, September 28, 1987. The Escort Service is available from 7pm to 1am. The student escorts, clad in bright yellow jackets, and travelling in pairs, escort FSC students to various destinations on and off the campus. The student escorts have direct radio contact with the Public Safety Department. There is a 2- way contact so that campus police can radio the escorts of their next job and escorts can radio campus police of any crime of suspicious characters they see. Given the rough location of the college, the new Escort Service, is a welcome addition to the community. The students involved operate under the premise that there is safety in numbers. During the Spring semester, a proposed cut in funding would have nixed the new Escort Program; the cut was justified by a lack of student interest in the program, and a difficulty in finding students with work study funds to become escorts. Students became involved in this issue and encouraged funding to be continued. During the 1989 school year, the Student Government Association will play a financial role in supporting the Escort Service. If the student body will take advan- tage of this opportuni- ty to ensure their personal safety, the new service will become a funding necessity, instead of an option. — Leslie D.

Controversy sur- rounding the election of a Senior class president has not only served to frustrate some candidates, but it has also high- lighted a need for stringent election guidelines. " I ' m disgusted with the whole situation and I ' m going to let the administration know about it, " a dis- illusioned Jeff Stallard said of the election foul-ups. Stallard was one of five candidates that ran for Senior class president. Tom Kilday, Mark Filosi, Winifred Monaghan and Anthony Rota (a write-in) were the other presidential hopefuls. Election trouble began when Monaghan approached the Student Affairs office con- cerning a mass mailing to solicit votes from the student body . . . . . . When Stallard requested to do a similar mailing, he was turned down. Apparently, as members of SGA cited, the letter Monaghan sub- mitted " went under the assumption that the mass mailing was for SGA of Commuter Board business, " SGA President Pat Mack stated. According to Lon Vickers, Dean of Student Affairs, the mailing error was due to " a new employee " of the Student Affairs office. He added, " If we had known it was for election purposes, we would have never authorized it. " With verbal protests from candi- date Stallard, who lost the election to Monaghan (35-27), Election Committee Chairman Marlene Bell decided to hold a second election. However, the second election was no improvement over the first. According to Mack, a " logistics problem " with the vote tally caused more problems for presi- dential candidates. Mack added that the problem was, " com- pletely and entirely our fault. " Round three of the Senior class election, however, proceeded without incident. Monaghan, who lost the previous election to Stallard (26-26), edged Stallard by a wide margin in the final election (42- 26.) - £. u. " Same Time This Year, " by Doreen Papa, re- printed with per- mission from the Strobe It ' s raining, your family is a nervous wreck and you have the aching feeling you forgot something. It ' s nothing serious, it ' s just Labor Day and your return to FSC. Whether you ' ve made the major upheaval once or four times, you vow that next year it will be more organized. Who are we kidding, everything goes in the back of the car, U-Haul or flatbed which barely allows enough room. I have collected more things these past three years that I cannot bear to part with. My parents swear I will never need these things but I honestly can ' t imagine life without them: 3-year old books and notebooks, 36 stuffed animals, ticket stubs from every concert, letters from friends, clothes which you know you will never wear again, etc. The sentimental value is just too great! After you have managed to organize your room (you ' d be surprised how much stuff will fit under your bed) you must face the endless lines. There ' s a saying in the military " Hurry up and wait, ' ' and that just about sums it up. You wait for your mailbox, your meal sticker, then dinner, a bank account, to add or drop a class, your phone to be hooked up, for your books that cost enough to subsidize the national deficit, and finally for something exciting to happen. When all of that is done, things will pick up . . . there will be plenty of homework, term papers, meetings to attend and dead- lines to contend with. O.K., so it ' s not that bad. This humor- ous but true picture is just the beginning. FSC is a lot of things to a lot of people. The semester will go quickly. Study hard, party hard, get everything you can from FSC and if you ' re not too busy, try and give a little back. fG07 r rS IT ' ttfi- 3T DENT T T " " 7 - • ES ;ort V I STur»vr W SC it I 1 II If H j 1 — " ' hL j • v ■ 4 1 ; WjL! ▼ Am " -V _ M £ Mill mil ■ ■ ' ' ■l»!l IM.I So you ' re sick of the dorms and want to live in an apartment? For those students who live in the surrounding area of FSC, off-campus housing is an attractive alternative to the " prison " of the dormitories. The beginning of the fall semester starts off well. Even the people you meet are warm as they are pleased to see your friendly face after the long hot summer. Then as the sun strains to bring life to each shortening day, the harsh reality of winter whistles under the door. Energy bills go up, the thermometer goes down and thoughts of a trouble free, comfortable lifestyle go out the window. You have to cook your meals. You have to pay bills. The watchful eye of the R.A. is replaced by the even more demanding landlord. Instead of skipping across North Street between classes you have to walk an extra mile sometimes to make it back to warmth and security, and often there isn ' t even that to come home to. For five days, the girls of 110 Myrtle Avenue battled out a total lack of power. Their oil burner did not work and they were trapped in a frozen coffin of darkness. They lived on a diet of Kentucky Fried Chicken, McDonalds, peanut butter and crackers and milk. We couldn ' t even make a cup of tea to keep us warm, " said Margarite, former resident of Aubuchon Hall. Apparently the landlord offered little help. After taking their $600 up front for the semester, which is unlawful, he continued ■ ■.; " " " ■ I A MBkv li ' .. 2 - ■. ■• •• • I n . • £ : . £ 4f 9j " jgjBi L [ H ' Jr ' - A h fk not to heed their frantic cries for help on the phone. " He ' s broken our contract more times then he ' ll care to remember, " said Margarite, gritting her teeth at the injustice. On the fifth day, there was light and heat. The Starving Icecubes (their chosen nickname) made it through the ordeal alive, and gave thanks to the God of Electricity by settling into normality with a cup of tea, a slice of cake and a nice chat in their heat-filled home. So if you ' re considering moving off campus, maybe you ' ll think again knowing what you now know, the Saga of the Starving Icecubes is but one example of unexpected difficulties and hardships beyond dorm life. It ' s not all a cup of tea and slice of cake. — Graeme Pearson V ' • • ' • " , - A . L NGAND SHARING holding of hands and a balloon launch in the quad.

In iddition, S6A council nembers collected that day, DAKA matched with money and donated $1,500 to CROP. Also, President Mara and staff collected $202. 1988 brought much more to this event. On October 14, the first annual CARE DAY Carnival proved to be a smoking success. The day ' s events started outside with the release of 2,000 balloons. The Commuter ' s Cafe and G- Lobby were organized with many game booths. To wrap up this uplifting day, the pub held an all ages dance that lasted far into the night. Preceding the dance, booth raffle winners were announced. Each club had donated a prize for their raffle, bach time someone won a game, a ticket was placed in the boother ' s tally box. Congratulations goes out to Sheila Foley, as the carnival was her brainchild. SGA supported The Care Day effort was kept alive through the Christmas season, with Dana Harring- ton and Rosalyn Frontiera of SGA coordinating a Christmas Care Day Christmas tree lighting and decorating in the quad. The crowd gathered around the tree and completed the evening with traditional carolling. All proceeds of toys and canned goods were distributed to local needy families. and promoted this project wholeheartedly, assisting Father Rich and Miss Foley. Thanks to student and faculty participation, over 2,000 tickets were sold through the efforts of 22 clubs. This was the first time that FSC had many different clubs and organizations working to- gether for a common cause The heroes were all those who participated in this worthwhile cause. Whether you brought a balloon, gave up a meal, set up a booth, or came to play a game, the results were fantastic and made everyone feel good about helping others while hav- ing fun themselves. Through, FSC ' s collec- tive efforts, $2,477.80 was raised. Food and toys were also bought by Kathy Martin-Estus, Director of Health Services, with a portion of the proceeds. Care Day was beneficial to FSC in many ways. The most important aspect is that the students of the college benefited from this goodwill by providing a vital service to the community. — Rosalyn Frontiers i Right: Sheila Foley addresses the crowd that arrived at the quad to release balloons and " Hold Hands for Hunger.

All the couples had an unforgettable evening where " February Fantasies " were formed. Relationships were created, strengthened and broken, but no one left without memories that would withstand the years. The band, " Magazine " left a rhythmic impression on the guests by performing a wide variety of popular music. The crowning of the King and Queen served to complete an evening of magical enchantment.

Such is the The Fitchburg State Gospel Choir gave a warmly received performance in Percival Auditorium during the Gospel Jubilee. case with Black History Month. This celebration of the achievements of Afro- Americans provides an insight into the American Dream. The theme of the February 1988 celebration of Black History Month at Fitchburg State College was the maintenance of the HBU3G STATE American Dream. This celebration used the Afro- American experience, as seen through Afro-American history and art, as a means to illuminate the Afro- American experience within the American Dream. The events which comprised the Black History Month celebration had the purpose of " Keeping the Dream Alive. " There were five events which comprised Black 36 this connection with authority. The late Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was honored on the night of February 3, 1988 by a service sponsored by the Black History Month Planning Committee. The " Making the Dream Come True " commemoration service for Dr. King was an uplifting and purely 30sitive experience that Southern Christian Leadership Conference and Washington, D.C. ' s non- voting delegate to Congress. The lecture was concerned with the changes in American society which are rapidly eroding the American Dream of economic security, economic opportunity, and the true " pursuit of happiness. " Fauntroy used history as History month. These events were the Commemoration Service for Martin Luther ing, the Kenote Address, he Harlem Renaissance heatrical production, the Bospel Jubilee, and the Heritage Ball. Of the five events of his celebration, two stand md eloquently testify of he connection between the ;xperience of Black mericans and society as a whole. The Martin Luther ing Commemoration Service and the eynote Address estify to the reality of blended the soulful harmonies of the Rtchburg State College and the Fort Devens gospel choirs with the powerfully pragmatic message of the keynote speaker, the Reverend Imani-Shelia Newsome, Chaplain Associate of the Marsh Chapel at Boston University.

" " Although we came over in different ships, we ' re in the same boat now . . . " To conclude his address he stated the potential that students have in making the American Dream viable and available to all Americans: " students can set the captives free. " Fauntroy pointed to the fact that as students rose above the ignorance and hate that has too often marred American history they would become more able to meet the challenges of the future. The result of these efforts would be to 38 achieve the " Dream of the world — to be free. " The remainder of the events of Black History Month were in no way " lesser lights " , instead these events illuminated other facets of the Afro- American and American experiences. The Harlem Renaissance theatrical production incorporated music, prose, and poetry of the Harlem Renaissance into a production that related the moving spirit of that era. The Gospel Jubilee allowed the college community to have the opportunity to experience the impact of the Black church on Afro-American culture. The sweet voices of the Fitchburg State College Gospel Choir were more than adequate to relate this impact to the audience. The Fourth Annual Heritage Ball was a great success. The February 26th event had a dual purpose, to honor the academic achievements of A.I. D. students, and to exist as a vehicle for the " pursuit of happiness. " The ball was a true celebration, a successful event that hinted at the fact that racial harmony might even be enjoyable. — Albert U.A.

WORLD ACCORDING TOME Pepto Bismol is the most revolutionary product in this civilization. Don ' t ask what " civilization " is because I don ' t know. I ' m surelhaven ' tseenmuchof it in my life, though. I asked my room- mate what civiliza- tion meant to her. She smiled, cocked her head and smugly said, " Civilization is an advanced form of cultural develop- ment which is char- acterized by a structural way of life. " Wow, it seems she learned something in her philosophy class after all. To me, civilization means a society in which civilized people live. Well then, what does civilized mean? Mr. Webster helped me out (as usual). He said: " Civilized is being edu- cated away from barbarous living.

No wonder Pepto Bismol, Rolaids and Maalox are such hot items. People are running around trying to appear " civilized " in a civilization which expects kindness. Finally, we ' ve found the problem. My dictionary states, " Kindness is being gentle, cordial, generous. " When was the last time I witnessed a generous act? There ' s not many times to choose from but I believe kind people exist. Please humor me. I sometimes feel dis- couraged and come close to packing up my cassettes and " barbarous? " " Barbarous: cruel, savage. " O.K., I understand now. Let ' s put it in layman ' s terms. A civilized person is a person that lives in a mountain bike and finding the most " uncivilized " society where the most important value is still kindness. — Corinne Haag 47 i n JlHSi JiUr mj. J it S here are two types of people: ones that talk and others who act. Both have good intentions, I ' m sure. There are different situations which call for speaking and others which require action. Maybe I ' m being too vague. For example, let ' s and you want to help. What can you do? Make some noise. Speak out. Make a commitment for change. I know it ' s hard but it just takes some courage. If you can ' t lower heaven raise a FSC is a proud institution which holds the reputation of offering its students one of the finest educations available. Kittle hell. Another example may hit cyou closer to home. Let ' s Bay that the programs at ithis school are a little less than desirable. Most (students prefer iisitting on ithe sidelines until something effects them (directly but don ' t you srealize poor programming cdoes? Not so many students would run home on the weekends if there was something constructive to do on campus. Speak out know, I know it takes courage. Change happens in gradual steps and for an impatient person such as myself, it is never fast enough. Kudos to the people that start speaking out, the people that continue and the people whom make commitments to facilitate change. All these people are courageous. I ' m not suggesting a riot or revolt. That ' s nonsense. I ' m simply suggesting being empathetic as opposed to apathetic. A conscious effort for change would be nice. And I hate the word ' nice. ' The next time you knoi someone that needs vou help — SPEAK OUT and help change the things that are wrong. There is an old proverb called " Difficul-ties are opportunities. " There are opportunities knocking on your door. Get up and answer them. — Corinne Haag If close watch was kept, mailbox addicts could be seen checking their boxes up to a reported 20 times a day, one anxious co-ed, who refused to be identified, admitted to changing her clothes periodically to avoid suspicion while checkiing her box repeatedly during the day. IF The social mecca of FSC, G-Lobby Boulevard is the traditional spot to people watch and catch up on the latest. BOULEVARD The hustle and bustle of people in the G-Lobby near the mailboxes is incredible. Multitudes of individ- ually cloaked bodies lugging bookbags, knapsacks, and briefcases can be seen cruising by or struggling with mailbox combinations. Clusters of students are at various places in the lobby, trying to part company before their 10:30 World Lit class in Thompson Hall. This ever changing area takes on the appearance of a ghost town or conversely that of a mobbed stadium. The lobby is a gathering place for sororities and fraternities alike. Friends use this spac e to catch up on daily gossip and meet up with people of the opposite sex. when the booming lobby does don its mask of soli- tude, only a few students can be seen intensely perusing notes for a test 3r just people watching to Dass a little time.

When faced with carcinogens, spilling acid, improper lighting of burners, obnoxious fumes ... one tended to find their inner core. Biology labs are a different story all together. One had the chance to dissect cats, rats, frogs, fish, newts, pigs, cows, worms, sheep, and plants. This course traversed the gamut of standing in a bog for two hours, to identifying insects in archaic books. After taking a few Biology lags, I noticed that I was developing a warped disposition.

MORE DULL DAYS The smell of powdered chalk, the familiar sound of the strike ball as it smacks into the colorful triangular rack. Crack. Listen to that sound. Hearing this reminds me of the incessant drudg- eries of the school week. Playtime has finally arrived. Remembering the vast wasteland of the games room in 1984, one must marvel at its recent popularity. There is no uninhabited spot. Crimson and yellow Mohawk jackets line the coat racks or are draped over the chairs. All swarm to the gamesroom for their favorite form of recreation. In order to satisfy a rapidly one finds himself whiling away long minutes near the Galaga Arcade machine to wait for the next available pool or ping-pong table. In retrospect, the gamesroom has proven its worth as a welcome and amusing stress reducer. Indeed, it has won its place in the hearts of many FSC students. — Thomas Morrow Paper, paints, leather, stained glass, woodworking, and even copper enameling are just a sampling of activities always available at the Campus Craft Center. The Craft Center, ■located on the bottom floor of the Hammond Building, allows every student and faculty member a $3 account to use toward supplies. These crafts include such items as Isilkscreening, wax and day objects. Students who have the ■jrge to be creative or want to relieve stress can 3xercise their abilities n this haven. At present there are four employees at the center who have considerable knowledge of the art world and are always willing to help interested first-timers in creating almost anything. Craft Center employees have developed a series of workshops that teach students a variety of different crafts including silkscreening and sign language. A rotating display of student produced crafts can be seen near the Campus Center Information Desk. It ' s presence has lured down many curious students who have now established themselves as seasoned " crafties.

The biggest event for the class was of course the Winter Carnival which is traditionally put on by the sophomore class. This year the event was held at the Sheraton Rolling Green Inn in Andover, Ma. The extensive hard work and planning that w ent into the event was well worth it as it was a big success and the Class of 1990 was paid many compliments by many who attended the dance. Although most of the year was spent on the Winter Carnival, the class did plan a few more events, including raffles and a Get Packed Dance. Congratulations Class of 1990 for a successful year.

" ii FOOTBALL The FS C Falcons are in their senior year of varsi- ty football and came a long way from past seasons. They had some close games this season; however, their record of 0-8 doesn ' t show their great improvement. This year ' s defensive team had one of their best sea- sons yet. Leading the defense was Mike Connolly with 122 tackles and four quarterback sacks. Also, the offensive team was improve- ment from past seasons even though starting quarterback. Bnan Ludwig. fractured his leg in one of the first games of the season. Even the special teams came through with needed field position and long returns. This year ' s Falcons, coached by Dave Secino, was led by captains Dave Lambert. Scott Sheldon. Mike Fitzgibbons and Phil Baron. Beginning the season at quarterback was Brian Lud- wig. After Ludwig fractured his leg Kevin Gates and Bnan Murray shared the position of quarterback. Other returning members were Richard Joyce and Chris Maloney in the backfield and Chns Maloney as noseguard. On the defense Bob Napoli, Gary Trongone and Steve Maloney returned to the team. The 1987 home opener was a disappointment with the Western New England Bears victorious in the second half with a 26-13 win. De- spite the loss the defense did perform tremendously with Mike McElkinney and Steve Maloney having two interceptions for the Fal- cons, and Steve Striffler added another interception for the home team. The offense even looked improved with Chris Brown rushing for 54 yards on 11 carries. The Plymouth State game was not only an upset in points but also in the quar- terback position. The Falcons returned home with a 44-0 loss plus an injured quarterback. The Mass. Maritime game was lost in the last quarter of play. The first points came when Mike Fitzgibbons caught a pass from Brian Murray and Butch Nadeau kicked a good extra point. However, after that touch- down by the Falcons the Maritime Buccaneers turned on the power and scored two consecutive touchdowns in the fourth quarter and walked away with a 15-7 vic- tory over the Falcons. In the Bridgewater game the Falcons sacked the quar- terback nine times but still lost 18-0. Leading the sacks was Mark Messina with three and Bob Napoli, Gary Tron- gone and Chuck Bowes each adding two a piece. 114 The Falcons ' sixth loss of the season came when Framingham won 43-21 . Howev- er, the offensive team did have it ' s best performance of the season but it didn ' t start until the second half which was too late. The of- fensive players who had season highs were Chris Maloney with 71 yards on 12 carries and two touchdowns; and Brian Murray with 10 for 27 in passing. Showing great improvement was Brian Breth who caught three passes for 58 yards. The second to the last game of the season ended with the Worcester Lancers beating the Falcons 12-6. Strong performances were seen by Butch Nadeau who had four receptions for 58 yards and the defensive team of Mark Messing, John Jangro, Mike Connolly and bob Napoli. The Falcons ended their football season with a 35-8 loss to Westfield. Receiving special honors during the season were Steve Maloney who was named ECAC Honorable Mention Defensive Player of the week of September 26th. Mike Connolly also received spe- cial honors by receiving the NEFC Co-Defensive Player of the week of October 3rd.

The Falcons fancy footwork paid off by becoming FSC ' s first team to ever capture an NCAA post season bid. Head coach Malcolm MacPherson led the team to another outstanding season posting a 12-4-1 record and an impressive 6-1 MASCAC mark. For senior co-captains Tom Capobianco and Andy Kramer the season started off slow as they posted a 2-1-1 record. However any question of the Falcons potential was . 13) 113 »n V A + quickly cleared up as they won ten ot their next eleven games, including wins over conference rivals Westfield and North Adams. A heart breaking 3-2 overtime loss to Salem in the first round of NCAA action kept the Falcons from advancing any further. Andy Kramer led the team this season in scoring seventeen goals and eleven assists, while Rob Jacobs posted a 6-3-0 record in goal. Regardless of the overall record, it was a season that most will never forget, es- pecially for seniors, Peter Barrows, Tom Capobianco, Andy Kramer, Tim Pesko and Mike Travaglini. Overall the past four years have been some of the best for the Fitchburg State soccer team with an overall record of 54-13-7. Next season looks just as bright with tn-captains Jimmy Kramer, Mike Lee and George Malone heading the team.

A letter from " coach " we get at summers end Tells us to get into shape. start to run, stretch and bend. Then off to camp, sessions three times a day. Our very sore muscles indulged in BenGay. We run and we sweat for practice each afternoon And look to the future, our first game would be soon. It came and it left with a blink of an eye A tough match it was, but. boy did we try. Whether we win or we lose, we play as a team Our emotions will swing and sometimes it may seem That we can ' t take no more of this sport that they call The Best in the World. Yes. it is VOLLEYBALL. In case you were too busy to come to a game Here is a run-down, but it ' s just not the same. First there is Captain Mary, Nemo, leader of all With her spikes and her serves we keep control of the ball. Next there is Laurie, our setter extraordinare Boy can she set that ball high in the air. Then there is Lynn, who keeps our spirits so high Her cries of the Falcon make us look to the sky. Fresoni can dig up those spikes, Oh so fine And her serves never go outside of the line. Then there are the sophomores, the Great Cindy squared 122 I! Together they control the ball and are always feared. Our bench is the greatest when they get the call Sue. Becky. Julie and Chris will never fall. Moe is the best assistant we could ask for An ex-volleyball player, she really knows the score. Now there is Bob, a coach with a heart, He knows what he ' s doing cause he ' s volleyball smart. Our fans keep us going when we ' re down in the dump The cheering and clapping help us serve, spike and bump. This is the end; yo u may think this poem is silly, But as we always say. win or lose, " together " and " chilly " . — C.A.C. 123 Brandeis Merrimack Wentworth Clark UMass Boston Worcester State Stonehill Salem State Emmanuel Bridgewater New Hampshire College Westfield State Worcester Polytech Wheaton Colby S.M.U.

Patti Ricci led the team in scoring and also captured All MASCAC honors along with teammate Linda Pellegnno. Pellegnno. Ricci and teammate Jill Myllakangas also made the Northeast Field Hockey Association All Star Team.

What did we have in common? We liked to run. For miles and miles and miles. So what was different about this year trtan any other year? The Team. Eight people with little in common, attacking their one common enemy, the road. Although this was not a great team, it was still a team, something that is rarely found in the sport of Cross Country. We reached for goals, realistic ones, and achieved them. When one of us fell behind the pack. mentally or physically, another member would approach and rekindle the flame of self-confidence. It was only fitting at the end of the season, the end of our season, that we finished the MASCAC achieving our realis- tic yet extremely difficult goal of second place. Despite our limited num- bers and limited talent, our team spirit shone through and led us the way to a respectable finish, some- thing that seemed impossible in the beginning of the season. — Stephen Gomes 128 ■p It is certainly no secret that the Women ' s running Programs have consistently been successful over the past decade. Head Coach Jim Jellison once again assembled another talented group of runners who captured both local and regional attention. Kim Bresnahan proved again to be one of the finest runners in New England as she captured All Eastern honors as well as the MASCAC Championship Teammate Gail lerardi also captured All Eastern Honors and a second place finish in the MASCAC Championship. 129 .

Captains Scott Bodamer and George Snow were the only seniors on the team. George saw limited action as a doubles player but was always verbalizing his encouragement and support for the other players on the courts. Scot t was the 3 singles player and one of the 2 doubles players. He was a true sportsman on and off the courts ever since he first joined the team as a freshman. The most exciting match of the season was the very first of the season, FSC took on WNEC Sept. 23rd. FSC We won three singles matches, while also losing three. So it came down to the doubles teams to pull off the win. The first doubles team won and the third doubles team lost. Playing 2 doubles was Scott Bodamer and Tony Vaillan- court. Mind you they had no experience playing as a team before. Scott and Tony won the first set. With the sec- ond set tied, 3-3 in games, the match was called on account of darkness. The match was completed prior to the regular match scheduled at WNEC. The doubles teams took the court as both FSC and WNEC squads watched on from outside the fence. FSC took the first game to go up in the second set 4-3. Then the two teams battled out the next game going back to deuce several times. But Scott Bodamer ' s experience shown through as he and Tony led FSC to victory by taking the next 2 games and the second set, 6-3. This was the first win for FSC in 2 years, as last year ' s team was cancelled due to insuf- ficient funds.

This explains what the 1987 88 FSC Mens Basketball team certainly portrayed in their most recent season. The Falcons, who were sporting a young and relativefy inexpenenced team were placed in the capable hands of 1st year coach James Conlee and Asst. coach Jay Young. Conlee is from Westminster, Ma., and he succeeds Tom Kelly who departed after the end of last season. Despite dropping many games this season, the FSC Men ' s Basketball team gained a couple of valuable commodities. The first was guard Selvin Chambers who was back after a two year lay- off. Unfortunately. Chambers only got to play 7 games before he left the team due to personal reasons. The second was experience. " We are a young ballclub and those players have really started to come around lately. ' said Jay Young. While the younger players gained more experience and the returning players proved their skills, FSC looked as though it could be on their way to a very successful season. Valuable, key players on the team included forward; Brad Fallon, center; Rich Carlson, seniors; Dwyatt McClain and captain Richie Repici. FSC played an impressive first half against the Lancers of Worcester State College. Brad Fallon turned in a fine performance with 19 points and 6 rebounds while captain Richie Repici connected for 10 points and handed out four assists. The second half of the game against MASCAC powerhouse Salem State College, hosted by the Falcons, certainly displayed the talents of FSC. Senior, Dwyatt McClain was a star player that evening as he netted 14 points and gave 9 assists. Guard Mike Allen was high man with 15 points and was " six out of seven from the charity stripe. " Despite these gutsy performances FSC couldn ' t quite fight off their loss. 136 After Christmas break, when the Falcons got back to work, despite dropping some games, they really proved their effort. On January 9, the Falcons traveled north to take on Plymouth State College. The Falcons were beaten but Selvin Chambers opened some eyes by pouring in 31 points. January 12, FSC hosted Worcester State College. This was their first league game of the season. FSC battled tough and was in the game for a while, but finally lost to the Lancers, 80-72. Dwyatt McClain dished out a season high 8 assists. The next two games were both on the road with Anna Maria College and SMU. Neither of these games fared too well as FSC was trounced by 28 and 19 points respectively. Well, let ' s talk about FSC ' s first victory of the season. It was a come-from- behind win over Suffolk University. The game featured the offensive talents of Brad Fallon as he canned 30 points and stole 10 rebounds. The game was a " back and forth battle " the entire way, with FSC gaining their first victory, 77-72! Although FSC started with an early lead Suffolk held a 10 point half time edge 42-32. The second half of the game was a fine example of the excellent effort provided by the Falcons. Senior, McClain, and Mike Connely t 137 took care of giving the ball to the nght men, as they combined for 10 second half assists. Rich " Spike " Carson helped out Fallon on the board " pulling down seven of his own. With six minutes left, FSC went on a scoring binge to put the game away 77-72. Due to new coaching, team members coming and going, the shuffling around of different line-ups and many injured players, the FSC Falcons unfortunately had a disappointing season. However, the Falcons have proved their determination and striving efforts which will undoubtedly set winning tracks for new seasons to come. 131 Ml Hi l 33 i Wi I i ' .

Under the coaching of Steve Forte and newcomer George Martin. the team finished the season with a record of 7-19. Seniors Lisa Forget. Beth McNamara. and Monique Joyce held the title of captain. and although their record was not as impressive as last year ' s they had many accomplishments to be proud of. Beth McNamara. offguard. proved to be one of the team ' s best players. She held the title of best free throw percentage (76%), most leads in assists (73), mo st steals (63), and averaged 12.7 points her game. Senior Lisa Forget held the position of defensive forward, and averaged 6 rebounds per game. Freshman Lynn Dorow helped out in shooting, 12.2 per game, and was named ECAC rookie of the week. Kerri Sheehan, also a freshman proved to be very competent in her role as a point guard in the starting line up. The line up rotated among 6 players Kerri Sheehan, Lisa Forget, Beth McNamara, Joyce Teso, Ann Marie LaFosse and Lynn Dorrow. They were victorious over some of their toughest competition, including wins over WPI, WNEC, Worcester 142 State, and Anna Maria. The season was also a season of firsts, Natalie Viola was the first person to score a three point basket in the history of FSC. Also the team went to the Bahamas over winter break, participating for the first time in the Goombay Shootout and placing an impressive third. Next Year the team looks forward to an even better season under the direction of three new captains, Joyce Teso, Natalie Viola, and Ann Marie LaFosse. " ■ 143 I li MEN ' S INDOOR TRACK One of the most underrated sports in FSC is the men ' s winter track team! This year ' s team brought home five All Americans and had good performances all-around. Four of the five Ail-Americans were brought home by the 4 x 400 meter relay team, consisting of; Jamie Wyeth. Willis Todd. Ron Garon and Brian Cross- man. These runners were Division III national champions, a feat no other sport boasts about here at FSC. Bnan Crossman brought back the fifth of the Ail-Americans to add to his remarkable collection of eight in four years. Cross- man became national champion for the 400 meter run, while also becoming N.E. Division III champion for the 500 meter run at the Dartmouth Relays earlier in the season. Other fine performances go the John Wegman, 1500 meter run. Barry Dyman, 1500 meter run, and Jim Barr. 200 meter run. — Stephen Gomes 144 WOMEN ' S INDOOR T j7iT?r Hilary Axtman Angela Benoit Kim Bresnahan Lynne Carroll Janet Cichon Susan Connaughton Lisa Dias Linda Dennis Lori Eckland Christine Frye Cynthia Johnson Gail lerardi Kara Liston Julie Lucas Diane Mailloux Kimberley Manzi Barbara McManus Michele Penno Theresa Rotolante Ann Simeone Sue Supple Carolyn Tamagna Deborah Wells Antoinette Wells Head Coach: Jim Jellison Asst: Rich Demetrius 145 MEN ' S TRACK AND FIELD ' • % Phil Baron Jim Barr Brian Crossman Tim Doulin Barry Dyment Ronald Garon Steven Gomes James Haley Mark Keenan Dave Lambert Matt Shea Jeffrey Simoneau Steve Souliere Andrew Smyth Willis Toddman John Wegman Bertram Whitley Todd Whitney Chris Walles Jamie Wyeth Head Coach: Jim Sheehan Asst: Dave Farnsworth WOMEN ' S TRAC Hilary Axtman Chris Barboza Angela Benoit Kim Bresnahan Christine Callahan Janet Cichon Linda Dennis Lisa Dias Lori Eckland Andrea Garritty Kelly Gilligan Cynthia Johnson Gail lerardi Kara Liston Lori Magee Diane Mailloux Laurie McTeague Michelle Penno Patti Ricci Maura Sullivan Debbie Wells Antoinette Wells Deborah Wooldridge Head Coach: Jim Jellison Asst: Rich Demetrius 147 1 HOCKEY This year ' s FSC hockey team was young, but with alot of talent and experience. The team had only three seniors and two juniors on the line up. The team showed it ' s talent by making it into the tournament for the third year in a row and for the first time, this team made it to the ECAC north-south finals. Senior co-captains for the season were Jim Norwood and Joe Gumey. Returning along with the co-captains were thirteen other players including Mike Miseisz. Tom Coady. Matt Hernon, Ken Hewson. Dave Edwards, and Steve Kura. The team also consisted of a well talented group of freshmen including John Daly. Vin Piro, Steve Sullivan, Steve Witkus, Jim Cerrato. Dave Gecoya. Vinnie Majeski and John Lavigne.

Composing a good defensive team was Coady, Gecoya, Lavigne, Edwards and Daly. The goal tending position was held by a strong trio consisting of Steve Kura, Tom Tobin and Dan Archibald. AII-in-AII the team had a great year! During the game against Nichols College on February 5, 1988 Joe Gurney became the first player in FSC history to score 100 goals in a college career. Also he set another record by making 200 assists in his college career. The team was the first team in FSC history to win twenty games and to make it to the ECAC North- South finals. 148 The finals began on February 27, 1988 in the Wallace Arena with FSC beating SMU in the ECAC north semi-finals by a score of 4 to 3.

The team was led by senior captains Linda Pellegnno (.320 avg.. 7 doubles. 11 rbi). Lisa Forget (.324 avg.. 16 runs scored. 7 stolen bases). Monique Joyce (.379 avg. 29 runs scored. 20 rbi. 5 triples), and Genlynne Wennerholt (.405 avg.. 3 triples. 1 home-run).

The team played an exciting, 10 inning game over Brandeis where Geri Wennerholt hit a double, followed with Missy Brunelle ' s single, then Sue Virog took full advantage of the situation and knocked them both in for a 5-4 victory. Unfortunately, they weren ' t as lucky against Nichols College in the finals, losing 6-0. Perhaps the finest performance by anyone on the team was made by Monique Joyce Vs. North Adams State. On the last game of the season, she dominated the game, going 2 for 3 with 3 runs scored in the first game and 5 for 5 with 3 runs scored, 3 triples and six J 154 rbi ' s, as FSC swept North Adams 9-8 and 14-13. The team finished the year at 15-13 with a 6-4 MASCAC record. Only four seniors are graduating and with alot of good young talent, coach Jack Boisseneau and Assistant coach Dave Pierce should have no problem in the next season to come. One last comment that the team will all understand!! Many people think our coaches are too rough, but to play on their team you must really be tough. When you make a mistake you better not be near. But we could always make our own comments because of Mr. B ' s bad ear. Our four years are over and now we must go, but there is one thing we want you two to know. We will never forget you or being told " Get your heads in the game!!!!!!. " And even though we had our spats we love you just the same!!!! Thanks Mr. B and Piercey. i 155 II 156 BASEBALL " • 1988 proved to be a good start for Fitchburg ' s Baseball team. The Falcons were going to prove their journey down South that they were not just any ball club. The Falcons ended up with a 3-3 record in St. Petersburg. Florida. The ace pitching staff of Gary Goller and Steve Mason along with solid defense seemed to hold Rtchburg well. FSC was greeted with a warm homecoming in beating Gordon College 5-2 where the talents of leading base stealer Bnan Breth and hitting of captains Lou Falcone and Gary Blanchette led the team to victory. Then came April and with it were showers and raw weather which brought injuries. Capts. Tom Murphy and Lou Falcone received hamstring injuries, pitcher Paul Murphy received a twisted ankle and Gary Goller was out for most of the season with a hand injury. The falcons stumbled over Clark University, So. Conn. State and Bates College but returned to victory over New Hampshire College 12-8 with the help of starter Andy Leach and relief Steve Mason. As the season moved on the boys found that home is where you hang your hat and your wins. They swept a clean double-header over New England College 12-2, 12-5 with the pitching team of Blanchette, Leach Sean and Suhoski holding the team and putting a nice ending to the season. 158 As for next year Coach Ballou feels that he have a stronger team.

In remembrance of you I consider every rainbow a ray of hope that shines through after every storm. In remembrance of you I shed a tear, which holds the memories I cherish and no longer fear. For in remembrance of you I remember all the fun laughter and pain and although sometimes I just cant explain, In remembrance of you, are the memories, which have become part of everyone you knew. The remembering so clear that keeps you close at heart so near. In remembrance of you, is aR of us, who remember a wonderful person with a friendship so true. In remembrance of what to do, I remember that we love you. m Joseph P. Wall Communications Media Richard W. Ward Communications Media Margaret M.
