econd place in league
crowns persistent Wrestlers
Highlighting the wrestling season was Sophomore
Bruce Geier's fourth place finish in the State Meet in 95
pound weight class. Such a record for a Sophomore is
phenomenal, two more years of fine wrestling are
promised. Senior Frank Rekieta also qualified for State.
One of the happier moments came when Franklin
grapplers proved city superiority by defeating Stevenson
and Bentley in a quadrangular meet with Waterford.
Franklin promises to be a Northwest-Suburban power-
house for years to come as many lettermen return. This
year's second place League finish offered a goal,
Victorious again, Forrest Ault was congratulated by Steve Watt and
Robb Leggat as he walked oft the mat. Varsity wrestlers watched as
one of their number battled it out with his opponent. The whole team
did an about-face this year and took second place in League.
Larry Lee labovej rolled back on his foe in hopes of pinning him. Reach!
ing through to grab a leg, Doug Lackey tbelowj outmatched his North
Farmington rival. Coach Kokenakes talked to Varsity wrestlers Frank
Rekieta, a State Meet competitor forftwo years. Frank was one of the
outstanding wrestlers in the area as well as in League. His quality,
plus that of the other varsity wrestlers, helped the team have one of
the best seasons in the history of Franklin competition.

Cheerleaders cry for 'Victory'
that Follows them everywhere!
Jogging anyone? Early morning summer practices tound
eight drowsy but enthusiastic girls running laps, stretching
limbs, and pulling muscles in the chilly August morning dark-
ness. All this was iust in order to be in shape when the football
season started a few weeks later. During brief rest periods they
wondered anxiously about the arrival of their new sponsor.
Summer ended, cheers perfected, muscles healed, squad
and sponsor Mrs. Dolores Hepler became readily acquainted.
Mrs. Hepler inspired innovative pep assemblies in the lecture
theater, locker signs, run-throughs, new yells, and use of a
mini-tramp. This was combined with Franklin tradition to pro-
duce more demanding cheerleader commitment. Efforts were
rewarded with student enthusiasm and faculty support.
While Barb Pehrson, Varsity alternate, demonstrated traditional cheering style,
Captain Mary Lou Conrow irightl practiced a different method of crowd appeal,
