friendships, and their camarad-
erie that would grow among
this group of people who would
spend at least thirtyglive hoursa
weekitogether in the same
place with the same purposes.
They would-y band together and
support each other throughithe
good times and the bad, pre-
paring to enjoy the old familiar
and to face the upcoming
ndividuality. They returned
not only as 'alfgroup liil but
also as individuals, each
hoping to realize his own
personal goals andlistrivingifor
personal excellence in a variety
of endeavors. Some goals
would be attained ilis and other
would not. Each student would
have to face failure at some
point during the year, ln dealing
with the challenges and learn-
ing from the mistakes, each
student would iinishglthe year a

really don't know.
The above conversation could have been
between many GHS students this past
summer. In Galesburg there were numerous
places to go for tanning, swimming, golfing,
or sliding. Among those were Lakelawn,
Soangetaha, Lake Bracken, Oak Run, and
Lake Storey. New in the area was the Rapid
Ride waterslide. It was one of a kind as senior
Shari Kellogg explained, "At first when you go
down, you think it's boring. Until you get about
halfway, that's when you pick up speed." It
opened Memorial Day weekend and closed
Labor Day weekend. Senior Nancy Adcock
said, "I went out Memorial weekend. There
were a whole bunch of people there!"
GHS students were also involved with their
various jobs. Junior Greg Nixon commented,
"I worked all summer, played golf every day,
and participated in Eve golf tournaments."
Traveling was also a favorite pastime.
Senior Grace Snowden had a busy summer
because she "moved from Germany to Mary-
land to Illinois to Maryland and back to Illi-
nois." Those not "into" all that hustle and bus-
tle took more leisurely trips like junior Anne
Simmons. " I decided to fly to California to see
my relatives and to catch up on some scuba
diving." Closer to home was sophomore
Denise Smith. "I visited friends in Rock Island,
went to summer basketball games, and was in
the work program," Jill Viane, sophomore,
had a musical summer. 'il went to the LI of I
music camp with Kathy Sward. But, I had fun
in Galesburg while I was here."
Happy to be back in the United States,
senior Kevin Crandall took his recreation
seriously. "I slept late. I'd go out and swim at
the pool. Then, I went and saw movies. It was
great being back from the Philippines. Oh! I
went to New Mexico for two weeks, too."
The ever-continuing sagas of daytime tele-
vision attracted many fans. Sophomore Karen
Robinson kept it simple, she "slept 'til about
IO, got up, watched soaps, and went to 'the
Junior Kristi Manual summed it all up, "I
love summer! But before you know it, fall
creeps up on you and knocks you over with a
pile of books."
Senior Andy Weigand plummets into Lakelawn water at 9.8
meters per second.

romptly, or not so promptly, around 7:45
am. on August 27th students at GHS started
falling back into the yearly routine that they
hate or love, dread or anticipate, run from or
find relief in . . . school. "Beginning August
27 is much too early," objected Missy Gregory, junior,
"Everybody else starts after Labor Day why can't we?"
The lockers open and close by combinations they
swore they forgot. They compare classes with friends:
they ask themselves "What did l do this summer?"
"The summer was too short," for Michelle Van Winkle,
junior, but she was glad to "come back to friends."
Gretchen Workheiser, junior, said that she was happy
"to see all of her old teachers."
For some of those coming to GHS that fateful Tues-
day, the experience was intimidating. "This school is so
big," said Amy Paul, freshman, "Were only freshmeng
we haven't learned to push our way through tcrowdsif'
Some of the more experienced class-goers were
relieved that they were no longer the aim of Hrst-day-of
school freshman jokes. Sophomore Christine Johnson
said, "l'mjust glad not to be a freshman anymore." No
more third floor or basement classes to fool her.
A common thought of all classes on the first day was
the evils of education. . . morning classes, homework,
lunch-or lack there of, books, studying, or even
remembering needed items. Sophomore yearbook
staffer Natalie Kessler, said, "l hate coming back to
school because I have to take pictures the first two days
Some of the older GHS students looked forward to
school for different reasons. Susie Browning, senior,
was "looking forward to the social stuff . . . but the
homework doesn't sound too great." Some seniors
were already "looking forward to graduation and col-
lege" as Kacey Ericson was,
Other members of the class of '86 had their doubts.
Julie Reinertson said f'We've always looked forward to
our senior year. lt's finally here--now what?" Lynne Bel-
lamy "wasn't too excited about coming back, because
the sooner it starts, the sooner it ends. l'll miss it all so
much," she said.
Even the school ofhcials had their comments on the
first day of school--mostly discussed over coffee in the
privacy of the teachers' lounges. Mr. Glenn Busse,
social studies teacher, told a yearbook staffer, "l walked
around today looking at all the excitement people had. l
just wish we could bottle some of it up so we could
release a little in January when everybody is so fblah'."
No matter whether it was anticipated or dreaded, the
27th of August started off the 1985-1986 school year.
Perhaps senior Kim Bican said it best, "This is it."

The image of that adorable "baby face" abounded in the halls on
Thursday of Homecoming week. But this was "baby face" in the true
sense of the word as the student body came armed with stuffed toys and
blankets -everydiing short of diapers- on Baby Day. Every imaginable type
of stuffed animal was seen. The two most popular types were the teddy
bear and the Cabbage Patch kid. Another item seen walking the halls was
the animal slippers. Pink bunnies were a popular type of slippers. Why did
so many students dress like babies?
"I think Spirit Week is great because it gives students a chance to show
school spirit. lt's fun to dress up and make the day more exciting," said
sophomore Paige Louderman who came to school with her slippers and
blankie. Junior Valerie Reaves said that Baby Day was a great chance
"...to be crazy and have some fun while showing school spirit." Reaves
wore a bow in her hair and carried a doll.
After school students rushed to the front hall for the Lifesaver contest.
The halls were filled with cheers for each class. Not surprisingly, the
seniors were the loudest. The object of the game was for ten people from
each class to pass a Lifesaver from person to person using only tooth-
picks held in their mouths. During the event junior Theotis White com-
mented, "I can't believe I'm actually doing this!"
When the contest was over, the seniors had emerged victorious. Next
to finish were thejuniors, then the sophomores, and last place went to the
freshmen, who did not enter a team.

An invasion of sea creatures seemed more like the plot
of a cheap science fiction movie than the theme for a
homecoming dance. However, after the dance most
people agreed that the theme of "Enchantment Under
the Sea" had turned out perfectly enchanting.
This marine excursion required more preparation than
even Jacques Cousteau usually takes. A multitude of
Student Council committees put in long hours to make
the event a success. A11 Club members sacrihced their
Saturday morning to transform the front hall into an
elaborately decorated underwater paradise.
Earlier in the week a potential disaster was narrowly
averted. The scheduled band, Magnum Force, had
double-booked Saturday night and canceled their aquatic
appearance. ln this sink or swim situation, Heather
Zeigler, Student Council president, managed to hook
High Risk to perform. Many students felt that High Risk
was great to listen to, but that their hard-rock repetoire
was not good for dancing.
Aqua and blue streamers hung from the ceiling of the
front hall. Fish, clams, and seahorses created the sensa-

tion of being under the sea. ln a change from recent
years, the theme was not taken from a song title.
L'Enchantment Under the Sea" was the theme of the
spring dance in the movie 'Back to the Future."
Around 9:00 p.m. the Homecoming royalty descended
the front hall stairs. First came the freshman attendant
Nikki Bican and her escort, freshman Jeremy Kleine.
Next were sophomores Jeanmarie Peterka and Bill Steck-
leberg. Junior Charla Chandler was escorted by senior
Doug Cox. Heather Zeigler and Steve Hawkins led the
senior court. They were followed by Cessy Burga with
John Mixon, Joy Ripperger with Jami Isaacson, and
Brenda Rush with John Sennezy. Last of all, Queen Beth
Fitch and King Chris Kleine floated down to their thrones
which were overseen by a giant octopus.
"l had a great time at the dance. The decorations were
great and l think everyone there had a lot of fun," said
senior Julie Dahlberg. All in all, "Enchantment Under the
Sea" entertained the students who attended until the tide

Contest" which consisted of the classes dressing
up one person in a football uniform and then
undressing him. Juniors took top honors. Seniors
and sophomores tied for second. The seniors were
disqualified, however, because they did not
remove the uniform at the end of the game. They
subsequently were placed last, and the freshmen "

Opposite Sex Day. For some it was easy to distinguish
who was a girl and who was a guy. For example, matted
down leg hairs under panty hose or a mustache consist-
ing of brovim marker were clear give-aways.
When asked if there should be an Opposite Sex Day
next year, senior Guy West commented, "Yeah, I think it's
fun, l think it gives the other sex some idea of what their
opposite goes through."
After school, the high heels and painted-on mustaches
gave way to spikes and beads of sweat, as the classes
faced off in the Tug-of-War contest. Despite the slushy
conditions, the rope was stretched out in front of the
school. ln the first match the freshmen defeated the
sophomores. The juniors next lost to the seniors. ln the
final "tug-off' the juniors defeated the sophomores to
place third, and the freshmen beat the seniors as dis-
gruntled losers jumped in to help.

When sports are mentioned at G.H.S. most people
think of basketball and volleyball, etc. However on sports
day students showed they have an interest in many other
zealous Gian others, getting their whole body and
soul and table into the fun.
types of sports.
Baseball uniforms dotted the hallways. Another popu-
lar sport was tennis. A few students showed more creativ-
ity wearing golf outfits, complete with clubs, karate suits,
and biking apparel.
The after school contest was "Jello Snarfing." What is
Snarfing? There was no real definition, but it was some-
thing to do with consuming a mold of jello at maximum
speed with out using hands.
The top snarfers of the day were junior Eric Strack and
sophomore Jenny Schwab. They both had true snarfing
form and eamed points for their classes.
When asked how he snarfed so well, junior Eric Strack
boasted, "l started this summer at Leadership Lab and
have been doing it ever since." No weight training is
needed, just stomach steroids on the weekends.

reason for becoming a hippy for the day.
Other students felt differently. "I don't think there's
any thing wrong with it, because it doesn't really pro-
mote war, the military's there with or without war,"
said senior Tammy Brooks.
Army green and "camo" were the most commonly
seen military representation. Several people man-
aged, however to secure full military uniforms from
the army and the navy.
At 3:05 p.m. the Pass the Frozen Key Contest took
place A highly chilled key was tied to the end of a
string and passed through the clothes of ten students.

The flourescent lights of the band hall brightly lit the
streamers and ballons suspended from the ceiling and the pastel
hearts underfoot. Tickets were punched and twosomes slipped into a
"Crazy for You" world for a few hours.
Past the overflowing coat racks, past the long
tables loaded with pastries, punch,
cakes, past the round
people and through
the double doors, couples entered
the dark front hall to the music of DJ Mike
White's sound system. Colorful flashing lights met the eyes
as people moved to the floor to dance. Junior Susie Blucker said, "My
personal opinion is that a band would have been better. lt makes the
crowd more excited, I thought Mike White was playing old stuff."
After several dances, when it was too warm to stay, couples drifted
to the cafeteria to have their pictures taken, token memories of the
occasion. Memories did not come easy, however, as the line for the
photos took thirty to fourty-five minutes before the flash bulb popped.
But dancing and pictures and clothes were not all that filled the
evening. During "The Conga", a group of senior girls in jeans, tennis
shoes, and football jerseys bounced in to join the well-dressed crowd.
Having paid 54.00 a head at the door, they were there to get their
monies worth. Senior Stephanie Dooley, one of the rowdy eight said,

There was a mood of anticipation
as, at 9:00, Mike White began the quiet strains of
"Crazy for You" and senior class president Nancy Fross
stepped to the microphone to announce the 1986 Royalty. Freshman
attendants Linda Carlson and Joe Schwab entered the spotlight first,
followed by sophomore attendants Carla Caruso and Kelly Claeys,
Junior attendants Paula Davis and Dan Clevidence came next, fol-
lowed by the senior king and queen candidates: David Bowman and
Jenny Kisler, Lisa Williams and Chris Mullin, Hank Sprinkle and Laura
Tiehen, and Lance Mitchell and Sandy Reeder. After a moments
silence, King Doug Cox and Queen Annette Funkhouser were
announced and descended the stairs to a burst of applause. They
took their places on the thrones between the white pillars, surrounded
by the court. Following the royalty dance, couples moved back into
the rhythm of fast dance.
As 1 1:00 PM approached, couples make last efforts to get pictures
and then picked up purses and coats and headed for the door, leaving
with the memories of an evening well spent.
Congratulations were in order for King
Doug Cox and Queen Annette
Funkhouser after their crowning
at the Royalty Assembly.

Stage Call opened its season with Gore Vidal's "A
Visit to a Small Planet." lt ran from October 18 to
October 20 and was directed by Betsy Hippely. "Visit"
is a three act comedy about an alien named Kreton
who travels to Earth to experience the Civil War but
instead arrives in the present. Kreton appears to the
Spelding residence, face to face with a rather aston-
ished family. Roger Spelding and his daughter Ellen,
explain to Kreton that he has arrived in the wrong
time. Although disappointed, Kreton decides to stay
and start his own war. But it wouldn't be much of a
comedy if the world blew up, so it doesn't.

enior prom is one of the major rites of passage
for teenagers. Expectations for the evening ran
high and it seemed improbable that the actual
event would meet those expectations. The
dance was scheduled for Friday, May 30th, so rainy
weather on Monday and Tuesday was sufficient cause for
alami among many potential promgoers. Many listened
daily for an extended weather forcast which included the
outlook for Friday. Fortunately, Friday was sunny and
clear with high temperatures which were fine for the girls
who had strapless dresses but a little less pleasing for
their escorts who had rented tuxes.
Friday morning, ten seniors were excused from
classes to decorate the Soangetaha club house for the
dance. Yards of dark pink and light pink streamers were
strung from a wire above the edges of the dance floor to
the chandalier in the center of the room. When pillars of
streamers were added to the corners, there was a
canopy-like effect. On the outside balcony, streamers
were woven between the rungs of the railing. To com-
plete the decorations, pink, silver, and clear balloons
were filled with helium and tied in bouquets throughout
That evening while many seniors were pinning on cor-
sages and boutonieres, No Secret, the prom band, was
setting up equipment under one end of the canopied
dance floor. By the time that most prom-goers had fin-
ished their dinners at various restaurants, the band was
ready to play. No Secret played a variety of popular
music which was very danceable. As more couples
began to dance, the floor became crowded and those
dancing became hot. This was an ideal time to step into
the other room for punch and cake or to wander onto the
balcony for some fresh air.
The evening passed quickly and soon it was time for
the dance to end. However this did not signal the end of
the night. Seniors hurried home to shed their formal
clothes in favor of more casual attire. Then it was time for
the Post-Prom at Northgate Bowling Alley. From mid-
night until three o'clock students could bowl, play pool,
or watch a movie on the big screen 'W provided by
Doyle's Furniture. After Post-Prom, some considered the
outing finished and headed home for sleep. Others,
though, did not go home until after breakfast with their
friends on Saturday moming.
Expectations for prom night were high. Many were
fulfilled, some were not. But even if all the hopes could
not be realized, it was still, as the theme stated, "A Night

senior Chris Davis gave a good solo performance.

Some of the graduating seniors had ties to Rev.
Helveston through either their church, youth group
or Fellowship of Christian Athletes. Helveston's
message focused on the need for an internal sup-

As the strains of 'Pomp and Circumstance' filled
the hot auditorium, the three hundred fifty-two
graduating seniors walked down the aisles and
took their places in the front rows. Rev. Leigh
Nygard from the Wesleyan Church gave the invo-
cation to open the ceremony. Assistant Principal
Lyle Snyder introduced the members of the school
board who were on the platform. For the first time,
both the school board members and the adminis-
trators wore caps, gowns, cowls, and armbands
depending on the academic degrees they had
attained. Senior Lori Wallace sang the Whitney
Houston song, "Greatest Love of All" before the
student speakers gave their addresses.
Elected by their classmates, seniors Brenda
Rush and Chris Kleine spoke to the graduating
seniors. Rush described the three qualities needed
for successful living-discipline, enthusiasm, and
a positive attitude. Kleine centered in on the useful
mechanism learned in high school. According to
Kleine, in high school students learned how to
cope with change, embarrassment, and failure.
Their speeches were followed by a slide show feat-
uring mainly seniors.
Faculty speaker Larry Diemer's speech was well-
received by the audience. Diemer spoke of gra-
duation as a rite of passage which entitled gradu-
ates to new standing and new knowledge. "There
is no 'they' said Diemer, referring to scapegoat-
ing the world's problems. Diemer also passed on
the knowledge of TANSTAAFL-There ain't no
such thing as a free lunch. With this philosophy,
Diemer said, graduates could have a more realistic
view of future situations.
After Diemer's address, the A Cappella choir
sang "Starmaker" and "The Way We Were." Lyle
Snyder read the names of the top five percent who
then stood to be recognized. Lori Wallace then
sang her own rendition of "Friends" Principal

h, senior year, the peak of one's high school career. What did it
mean to the 404 members of Galesburg High School's class of 1986?
Some enjoyed the position of top dog and the social prestige that it
brought. Knowing the teachers and "the ropes" made life easier for
seniors. Most agreed that the best part of being a senior was that they would
soon be getting out.
However, others weren't so sure. They suffered from senioritis, pre-college
or pre-work anxieties, the rhetoric blues, and other syndromes which
attacked the graduate-to-be. "You may think you're being freed from every
sweathole. . . as soon as the bell rings for the last time,', said senior John Riess,
"Wait 'til you get a job, brother." Senior Dawn McCarthy also took a less than
optimistic view, "You feel like you're just about to get out of prison, but only to
take the keys into your own hands and lock yourself in again in college."
There were bright spots in the year. Senior Jeannette Prentice noted, "It
seems like the brownie points you've earned in previous years have accumu-
lated so that some teachers ignore occasional sleeping in class and tardiness.
No teacher would consider asking you for a hall pass." According to senior
Tim Savage, "There was one and only one advantage to being a senior which
seems to be a disadvantage to some. The advantage is new freedom. That's
great except that some can't handle the responsibility that must accompany
For senior Randy Gilbreath, the highlight of the year was that "you could
get out at noon." Other students commented that knowing how and when to
skip classes was a major benefit of experience.
On a more academic level, senior Dennis Stieren said, "Teachers treat
seniors on a higher level than the underclassmenf' Seniors like to think that
they have earned this respect and perhaps they have. As senior Lisa Atwater
put it, "You know what is expected of yourselff'
Seniors are famed for rejecting the concept of embarrassment. "You can do
whatever you want because in a short time you will never see these people
again," senior Guy West pointed out.
The senior year is a time for making many decisions. Senior Darrin Wilson
found guidance in "a good group of teachers and counselors. . . willing to help
out a lot on college information." Other decisions faced the Senior Council.
Commented Nancy Fross, senior class president, "The decisions I've made
this year are going to affect how people remember their senior year. Prom and
graduation are major events in people's lives.',

hey say competition is the spice of life. If that is true stu-
C J dents at GHS this year showed they like it hot.
Competition between classes and organizations was 'C
a major booster of school spirit this year. The come
petitions between classes in the Spirit Weeks helped alleviate
some of the boredom of usual classroom grind. "lt gives me a
chance to dress-up like I'd like to all the time,', said junior
Marty Helms. The seniors, as is usually the case, won the
Spirit Weeks because of their great enthusiasm and that certain
advantage that age holds.
The GHS foreign language clubs also got into the competitive
spirit this year. An official volleyball tournament took place in the
spring. The four language clubs pulled out all the stops in trying to be
the club that could claim to be number one. And, ofcourse, there is
always the unofficial tasting of all the cuisine on Foreign Language
Food Day. "I think eating the food is the best part of itf said senior
and president of German Club, John Riess.
But is all this competition merely fun and games? Can it get out of
hand? "For the most part l think people take it for way it is, fun. But
sometimes itls taken a bit too seriously," said senior Brad Statham.
The best example of an event that nearly became dangerous was the
annual Paper Bowl. This year the Reflector staff squared off against
the Budget staff in the cold and the rain and the mud in a ferocious
game of tackle football. The Reflector staff beat the Budget in the
body-bashing, two and one half hour, double overtime football game.
For several days after the game players from both teams could be
seen walking the halls of the school with grimaces of pain on their
faces. Junior Jana Riess said of the game, "lt was murder. But as a
faithful Budget staff member, l persevered through the rain and bru-
tality and arrogance of the Reflector stafffl
"I want a rematch. And l wish death on all Reflector staff
membersf' remarked senior and disgruntled Budget member,
Danny Rincon. 1
But despite all the aggression taken out on each other, almost
everybody realized that it was all meant to be fun. The spirit of
competition was alive and well in the hallowed halls of Galesburg
l want a rematch. And I wish death on all Reflector staff
members," remarked senior and disgruntled Budget member

ver plagued by the morning indecisions,
E when that perfect outfit just could not
be found? Ever asked, "What should I
wear?', These seemed to be common prob-
lems of students at GHS. With all the
things that had to be considered, it was a
miracle that some students ever made it to
school on time. The major factors that
were considered in deciding what to wear
were comfort, what others thought, and
how the one making the decision felt. Jun-
ior Jessica Williamson thought the factor
that made the choice for her every morning
was what she felt like. Senior Melinda
Engler carried that idea a step further by
saying, "If I have a test that day l usually
dress down, but if I just met a new guy,
well .... I' On the other hand, senior Doug
Goewey and junior Sergio Ponce both had
the idea that was the most common among
the guys, comfort made the decision almost
every morning. Junior Sergio Ponce also
had another reason for dressing the way he
did. He "hated the preppy looku. That emo-
tion was not uncommon, and the preppy
look seemed to be slowly dying out.
Sophomore Karla Shive disagreed. She
thought the look was great. Many people
began a definite conservative trend fin
dress onlyl. There were quite a few reasons
for the change. One student felt that the
look was the easiest to co-ordinate.
Sophomore Kelly Winter said that she
dressed conservatively so that she "could
feel confident that when I walk down the
hall I wonlt get any strange looks." The
athletic look was popular with a lot of guys
and girls. Even if they were not athletes,
they wore sweats and t-shirts. Another
look that was popular with the guys was the
"any-way-I-feel-like" look, but there were
some guys with a bit more pizzazz that
dressed with a more fashionable or a mod
look that was the Limited look from the
Limited clothing store. Some students had
their own special looks. For example, jun-
ior Joel Meyer's look was the "I-just-got
up" look, which seemed to be fairly popu-
lar. Most student's didnlt fit into just one
look everyday, which made for some tough
decisions in the mornings. For some, get-
ting dressed on some mornings was the
eighth wonder, but when they decided
what kind of mood they were in, it was usu-
ally easy going from then on.
Sophomore Jennifer Olson
brightened up the hallways with
the Madonna look, while sopho-
more Michele Verebelyi pre-
ferred a more toned-down look.

a common sight in the halls dur-
ing the year.

gone by. Only nicknames descriptive of physical characteristics had a chance of survival.

o G.H.S. juniors, achievement had many meanings.
To some, just getting by was an achievement. Oth-
ers were only satisfied when they did things well. To
a few, the only real achievement was being
Representing the first school of thought was junior Dan
Clevidence, who commented, NI made it past the first quar-
ter." Academically, Clevidence was not describing an insignifi-
cant feat. Considered by some to be the toughest year of high
school, the junior year was a challenge many students found
difficult to handle." Some students, however, met the chal-
lenge. Junior Doug Sheckler unhesitatingly answered that
"getting an A average" was the greatest achievement of his
The outcome printed on the report card was not the only
achievement students recognized in themselves and their
peers. Junior Michelle Sutor said, "I consider making cheer-
leading an achievementf, Others felt that their greatest
achievements lay in the area of sports. Varsity golfer junior
Doug Owen said, "My golfing has earned me great fame."
Varsity football player junior Rich Antrim described his off-the-
field achievements. HI was the only one on the football team
not to get initiated...I'm too fast and too smart for them." For
some, athletics taught an important lesson. Varsity football
player Scott Batzer, a junior, said, "Football taught me how to
work harder." Gadet junior Susie Blucker felt that "being in
Gadets was a lot of hard work, but it really paid off at perfor-
Participation in non-athletic activities also ranked high on
priority lists. lt was within these groups that students had the
opportunity to excel in their areas of interest, test their leader-
ship skills, and make new friends. Actor John Farrimond, a
junior, considered his principle role in the fall play an impor-
tant achievement. "It was a great experience working opposite
Laura Rosene and Bob Harrison. It furthered my already sky-
rocketing career." Junior class president Linda White said,
"live been involved in a lot of different clubs at school, plus I
was involved in things outside of school such as fSt. Maryis
Hospitalj Explorers." Junior Brenda Stewart was pleased with
her two-sided achievement. "I proved that I can keep my
grades up and still participate in extra-curricularsf' Stewart
said. Junior Greg Hebner, who moved to Galesburg during his
sophomore year believed his participation in organizations
such as Spanish Club helped him achieve socially. "I've gotten
to know a lot of people I didn't know last yearf' he said.
Each student had his own definition of achievement and
some were more widely accepted than others. However,
throughout the school year, juniors pushed themselves toward
goals that they personally desired.

efore school there were early morning practices and
classes. After school and in the evening there were prac-
tices, rehearsals, lessons, meets, games, jobs, meetings,
dates, and homework. As a list of various activities in
which students took part throughout the year, this was nothing
amazing. What was amazing was the fact that somestudents were
doing a majority of the activities in each day.
How did they cope? "Organization," answered junior Kristi
Manuel, "figuring out what priorities are first." With a rigorous class
schedule, a job at Wencly's, and varsity volleyball practice and
games, Manuel had to modify homework time. "I try to take as much
time as I can during the class," said Manuel.
Juniors Greg Nixon and Cindi Watson both had priority lists on
which sleep was at the bottom. Nixon, a member of the boys' golf
team and an employee of the Soangetaha golf pro-shop, insisted,
"School is my first priorityf' When asked how he scheduled in
homework, he replied," I stay up until I get everything donef' Wat'
son, a member of the girls' golf team whose days during the fall were
completely consumed by golf said, "I try to get all my homework
done...some nights I don't get all the sleep I needf'
With a job as Seifert's, a job at Foxmoor's, a part-time modeling
career, and Choral Dymnamics rehearsals, junior Michelle VanWin-
kel had a positive outlook on her hectic schedule. "When I first
started being busy I couldn't get used to it. Now that I'm used to it, I
Although these students seem to have reached the age at which
they could cope with the vast responsibilities they undertook, there
was still a lot of dependence on Mom and Dad. These supportive
parents had their own feelings about their kid's lifestyles. Nanette
Prentice, mother of sophomore Collette Prentice and senior
Jeanette Prentice, offered mixed feelings on the subject, "I'm really
glad they're both involved academically and Colette in sports, but
sometimes they get too involved. The homework is overwhelming?
However Prentice felt that her daughters' involvement in school and
extra-curricular activities was ultimately beneficial. "It's good expe-
rience for what's to come because this is what they'll have in college,
they have to learn to cope with it."

lmost everybody has, at one time or another, had a chance to sign the check-in sheet at
the front desk. For some, it was merely a routine procedure to be treated with the same
kind of enthusiasm and excitement as getting out of bed in the morning. For others,
however, it was a chance to display creativity, frustration, and often annoyance.
ln a typical check-in sheet morning, there were many different excuses. While the most
popular ones seemed to be "overslept", "sick,', and "car troublen, there were a few people out there
that liked to get just a bit more detailed. It was amazing that someone could possible fit excuses like,
"I was halfway across town when I suddenly remembered that my history book was still under my
bed at home, so I had to turn around and go all the way back to get it," on a 1" by 2" blank space.
Other people seemed to go blank when faced with thinking up a good excuse for the sheet. This
was the reason for all of the ditto marks in the morning. Car trouble? That sounds good-me too. " "
QI don't have a car? Oh, well.j Most people agreed that it didn't seem to matter what a student put,
just as long as he wrote something, Commented one junior, "Really, you can sign in just about
anything you want, and people often didf, Junior Jeanne Murphy expressed her frustration one
morning after arriving ten minutes late by vehemently writing, UPARENTSV' across her space. Her
friend very calmly signed underneath that, "Jeanne,s parents."
Of course, some people did take advantage of the flexibility of the check-in system. One junior
confessed, "live gone out to breakfast before with my friends. We'll come in around 8:30 and sign in
various different excuses. lt's really easyli' Another junior said, "I hated my first hour class, so every
once in a while I'd skip, and sign in "overslept."
"I think that almost everyone has probably abused the check-in priveleges before," commented
junior Sean Campbell. "It's no big deal."
Neat as a pen
PIG PE that is!
Bedrooms reflect the lifestyles of some very
busy but unorganized teenagers. Clothes
thrown everywhere seemed to be a common
characteristic, as did rock posters, old tennis
shoes, and homework that never quite got
handed in. The main complaint came from the
parents: most of them were unhappy about
their teenager's unkept domain. However,
many of them just tried to avoid their teen-
Most of the teenagers' bedrooms had spe-
cial hiding places where they kept anything
from bad report cards to old and embarrassing
love letters from people that they wanted to
forget, But most parents felt that if they
wanted to look for something that it would do
them no good. They also wondered if their
teenagers really knew which clothes on the
floor were clean or dirty. Senior Ronda
Copher was quoted as saying, "My father is
afraid to go into my room for fear of getting
"I hate to say it, but I still
have my old teddy bear
sitting on my bed."
All in all, boys, and girls' rooms had very few
differences. Both had music and magazines,
cologne and messy closets. One anonymous
junior was quoted as saying, "I hate to say it,
but I still have my old teddy bear sitting on my
bed." When asked if he still cuddled with it at
night, he replied, "Only after a really scary
So, the teenage habitat has been described
as sloppy, pigpen-like, and an overall mess,
but it was still home to its occupants. The only
hope that parents had was that when their
teenagers finally moved out, they would pick
up their prized possessions off the floor and
take them away.
Caps, visors, and other paraphenalia

Messy closets are a staple ingredient of
the recipe for a teen's room,
he year of '85-'86 proved to be a challenge for most sophomores, whether it was struggling
through chemistry, or trying to pass Algebra I. The class of 488 had to put up with many
"you're-almost-there-but-not-quite-yeti' stages, such as the anticipation of getting their drive
er's licenses, being old enough to obtain a job, and the fact that while they weren't quite as
lowly as the freshmen, they didn't have the prestigious title of an upperclassman. Still, though all of this,
a few things proved a sense of comic relief,
Games during the lunch lines were desperate forms of entertainment to relieve the boredom of
closed lunch. Food fights were not uncommon among sophomores, and the cafeteria french fries were
reported to be good amunition. Another popular game for a few weeks during November and
December came with the invention of "Fast Macs," those small 596 wind-up toys found at Galesburg's
til restaurant. For some reason, Fast Mac races provided a ridiculous sense of excitement and bets
were often placed. A sophomore owning a good car was very much admired in the world of racing!
"Fun" wasn't always restricted to the lunch hour, though, as classes during the day usually provided
enough amusement-usually by observing other people.
Sophomore Kim Legrand remembers, "There was a lab during biology where you had to take a
sample of your own blood. I won't mention any names, but a certain football player in my class started
whimpering as soon as he saw the needle! It took Mr. Allison a long time to finally convince him that it
Jodi King got a few laughs from the people in her chemistry class "when I spilled acid all over the
front of my sweater!" Driver's Education was the class in which most people got the biggest kicks-no,
not the people driving, but the people in the car with them. Jill Viane said, "I was always really nervous.
One time I was crossing an intersection and this semi was coming right at me-I was terrified! I slammed
on the brakes right in the middle of the street with Mr. Albright saying, 'Jill, keep going!' It turned out
that the truck had a stop sign. I was so embarrassed."
Some people had fun with clubs and sports after school. Football player Dave Guenther liked
practice on rainy days because ulnstead of doing our usual sprints, we would run and dive into the
mud. After practice we were a mess!"
Stage call was reputed to be one of the most wild and crazy clubs, Molly Wilmoth remembers some
of the events backstage, "Like the time one of my friends decided to steal my clothes after rehearsal.
When she took off with my clothes I had to run after her. Then she went into the front hall and began
displaying my clothes to various different guys standing out there! I had to go out and retrieve them.
Meanwhile, everyone that knew what was happening was rolling on the floor!" That was just one of the
many happenings behind the scenes this year. Mike Mannino says, "We're just a bunch of crazy people
trying to have fun!D
Even the early morning could be amusing. Sophomore president, Collette Haraszko, remembered a
humorous happening, "One morning Colette Printice and I were selling donuts. For a breakfast ticket a
person must have 3 things. A guy came up with only 1 item. I-Ie had a walkman on, and when I told him
he needed other things he screamed, "What?". I told him again so he went back in line, This time when
he got back he only had 2 items. I told him again he needed another item. He lifted his walkman and
yelled again, "What?l'. So I told him again. Then he started cussing us out. By this time the whole
cafeteria was watching this guy screaming swear words at us, The guy was so mad, he walked out of
the cafeteria cussing. Colette and I just stood there laughing."
Even with all the restrictions and responsibilities placed on the class of '88, they still had time to let
loose and entertain themselves. "We're really not as boring as people say we are," commented Kristin
Kutzner. "Some of us can really have funf'

Tooooo... Mu h Time o
Because of their inability to
drive, many underclassmen
such as freshman Becca Hen-
son, had more time for studying
The frequent weeknight games
provided a way for many
underclassmen to escape the
confines of home.
t was Tuesday night, there was nothing on the television, every
bit of homework was completed for so they saidl, the dishes
were washed and dried. What on earth was a sophomore to
do? Susan McNerney said, "I guess I'd go to bed.'I That would have
been well and good if it had been 10 o'clock but it was only 7:30 and
most peopleis little brothers werenlt even in their pajamas yet.
This was a customary predicament for many sophomores. The
absence of a driver's license put a damper on possible weeknight
amusements, like going to the mall. But parents were somehow
never dressed "properly', to be seen in public, and were, therefore,
indisposed. "My mother comes home from work and puts on
clothes I know she wore in 1965 and hides behind a book or papers
the rest of the night,', said Natalie Kessler. This often led to the
uinadequaten social lives of sophomores.
This left an extra curricular event or the Galesburg Public Library,
where parents were able to drop off a student and no one would
ever see their attire,
"It,s too hard to get to town from my house to go to any extra
curricular activitiesf said Jeanmarie Peterka. The sophomores that
did get out of the driveway had at least a part of the evening taken
There was a game or a meeting, and the last realistic resort was
the library, where anything from All Creatures Great and Small to
Vogue could be read for the nominal fee of nothing. There was
usually a Knox student on hand to make fun of.
Even being at that awkward age between "no chance" and uno
car" sophomores survived until that day they earned the status of a
respected Illinois driver and could get to the library on their own.

A Fresh Start
he change from junior high to high school was a big one
for the freshman class. Besides being thrown into a totally
new, larger environment, they also went from being "the
leaders of the pack" to "the lowest of the the low.', First
day fears were common for many. Admitted one freshman, "l was
sure that I would get lost, or that I would not know any one in any of
my classes. Once I got there, though, it really was not too bad."
Most of the freshmen survived the "trauma" of the first day, and
were handling their schedules like old pros by the end of the first
There were many differences between junior high and high
school, most of them favorable. When asked what she liked best
about her new school, freshman Jennifer Nelson said, "Most of the
teachers here treat you like you are more mature. There is just an
overall sense of having more freedom." Melanie Bradford, another
freshman, liked the games and dances. "They were a good place to
to go and be with all your friends, and to have a great time." Fresh-
man Melissa Rountree said, "I liked the fact that there were a lot of
ways to meet new people. People, for the most part, were really
Getting involved in the many extra-curricular activities that GHS
had to offer was a good way to meet people and make new friends.
The freshman football team had an excellent record this year of
eight wins and only one loss. Team member Tony Ulm talked about
his experience. "Our team was really close. We worked hard and
practiced together every day, and really got to know one another. It
was a blastli'
Football season meant marching season for the band members.
Freshman Mark Lear recalled his first marching season. "Everybody
in the band really got to know each other. It was like one big family.
The practices were hard, and took a lot of dedication, but the results
were something to be proud of. l'll never forget how good it felt to be
out on the football field at U of lf'
The freshmen who got up at 5:00 A.M. every morning to get ready
for swim practice also knew the meaning of dedication. Freshmen
Chris Johnson and Eric Peterson both agreed. "It took discipline,
especially getting up that early every day! Once you were in the
water, though, it really woke you up."
The class of '89 had many talents to share with their new school.
Said freshman class president Chris Inness, "This seemed to be a
good year for our class. GHS had a lot of opportunities for us to
show people what we could do, and we also had a lot of fun!" The
'85-'86 school year proved to be a good one, and the freshman class
really got a chance to show how good a "fresh start" could be.

F lirting. That wonderful way of breaking the ice. You see some-
one you like, you do a little searching for those good ol' guts, and
you strike up a conversation. Simple, right? Not necessarily.
Although people had varied ideas as to what worked or didn't
work, staring and calling the prospect on the phone definitely
worked. As for winking, the general concensus was, don't. One
freshman said, "It's so old fashioned," while others found it appeal-
ing. Writing notes worked too, but some sort of contact feye, bodyl
was very good.
Targets, no matter how it was phrased, were always good-looking.
Freshman Tymand Staggs implied this with "...some high standard
of appearance", while freshman Kevin Holmes was rather blunt:
"good lookin' chicks!" Successes were sometimes few and far
between or else too personal to admit. Staggs said, "I do not need to
flirt. I have it all without such a childish imposition." Most people did
not comment on this, but failures were, as freshman John King said,
"too many to count." Crushes could be failures, too. Freshman Tina
Harris said, "I embarrassed him, he embarrassed me. Things never
worked out. It was heartbreakingf'
"You will get over a failure. Just one doesn't mean you're doomed
to fail over and over again," commented one freshman.
Advice came from a variety of sources, and among them were
parents and friends. Grandparents lent a hand now and then, as
with freshman Teresa Oriti: "My grandma always told me that if a
boy hit you, it meant he liked you." Freshman Jen Gohring said,
"My friends say go after a guy, but my parents usually say just wait
and see if he talks to you or calls you or something. They,re pretty
old-fashionedf' Gohring advised other potential flirts, "Just be your-
self and wait for the right person to come along." But if Prince or
Princess Charming doesnlt quite make it your way, maybe it's time
to flirt a little.

-Eight Letters With Horri ying Implications
ust the sound of the word was horrifying. To many teenag-
ers it was the ultimate punishment, especially for freshmen.
To be unable to socialize their first year at the high school
was a terrible tragedy. Although it seemed to be a popular
form of punishment among parents, many freshmen felt that
it was ineffective because it didn't teach them a lesson. Freshman
Steve Martin said, "I usually go back and do it againfl If that was the
case, then why did parents use grounding as their favorite punish-
ment? Maybe it was because it was easier than finding a "punish-
ment to fit the crimef, maybe not.
Then there were a minority of freshmen who looked at grounding
from a different point of view. Freshman Nancy West described
grounding as "a good way to discipline teensg threatening them with
their social life always works." Although these freshmen though that
grounding taught them a lesson, they didn't necessarily like it.
These freshmen were those that learned their lesson the first time
In a recent survey of thirty freshmen, coming home after curfew
and receiving bad grades were the two reasons they were most likely
to be grounded. Other reasons varied from smarting off to more
serious offenses such as getting in trouble at school. The "senten-
ces" usually differed according to the seriousness of the offense. For
example, one could be grounded from the phone for smarting off, or
one could be grounded from his social life. Being grounded from
social lives meant that a teenager could not use the phone, go out,
or participate in activities. The length of these "sentences" also
differed according to the seriousness of the offense. They lasted
anywhere from one night to a month. Freshmen who were grounded
for more than a week were ready to climb the walls by the third or
fourth day. There were only so many shows on TV, games to play
with brothers and sisters, or homework assignments one could do.
All students hated to be grounded for many reasons, the obvious
one being the loss of privileges. Another reason was the loss of
respect and trust from parents. Sometimes it was hard to regain it.
Almost all students did their best to avoid being grounded, but when
there were, they suffered through it and survived.

A big man in stature, a big man in life
Apillar of strength and understanding
to those around him.
A man with interests as diversified
as the backgrounds of the many friends he made.
An athlete, a coach, an outdoorsman
A counselor, an artist, an educator
A communicator possessing the ability to motivate
those around him through his enthusiasm for life,
his ever-present sense of humor,
and his constant drive toward perfection.
A man whose creativity showed itself
in all facets of his life--
from his love of photography, painting, and sculpture
to his fishing, trapping, teaching, and coaching techniques.
A man able to single-handedly
wrestle a van from a snow bank,
and moments later transform a lump of clay
into a sculpture piece.
An educator who not only instructed his students,
but reached out and touched their lives
enabling them to say,
'He wasn't just my teacher-
he was my friend.'
A man whose positive approach to daily living
leaves each of us with something very special.

t's very rewarding for me to be on it," said Mrs. Willabell
C C Williams, speaking about the Fire and Police Commis-
sion. Several GHS teachers who were involved with the
community agreed that their activities were worth
Mrs. Williams was a member of the Fire and Police Commission.
She received a salary of approximately twenty dollars per month for
her Commission work. Mrs. Williams and the other members of the
Commission selected officers for the Police and Fire Departments,
Another role of the commission was to hear complaints from the
chiefs of police and fire.
Miss Sheryl Hinman, a city council alderman for the seventh
ward, said "l have to take calls in my home and l try to get to the
person within a weekf' Miss Hinman attended the bi-weekly meet-
ings during the year and received a salary of 51,800 She put in an
additional 15 to 20 hours a month besides the two or three times the
City Council met each month. ln her activities she said she espe-
cially enjoyed umeeting new peoplef'
Another area of community involvement which occupied many
teachers was that of religion. Mr. Doug Fitch, counselor, had a
number of responsibilities in his church. He was a Lay Minister and
the president of the Methodist Men's Club. He was also a senior
high Sunday school teacher. Mr. Fitch enjoyed his work because he
felt that during church services he could "share with the other
Mr. Lyle Snyder, assistant principal, was new to the Galesburg
community but was active nonetheless. Mr. Snyder served as a
member of the newly created Youth Commission. The commission
was established by the City Council to focus on issues concerning
young people in Galesburg, The commission met the first Thursday
of each month. 'fWhen l was appointed to the commission," said Mr.
Snyder, "l was a little uncertain about what would take place. But
after a few meetings, I am happy to be on it. lt is definitely something
positive for youth in Galesburgf'
These and many other faculty members of GHS were active in
their community, proving that their concern and involvement did
not end at 3:00 p.m.
Social studies teacher Glenn Busse per-
forms a valuable community service by giv-
ing blood when the Red Cross visited GHS.

"I like matn because tnere is alwavs
a definite answer," said sopnomore
Amv Derrv. But tne answers tnat
matn teacners are struggling to find
aren't duite so obvious. Matn test
scores are dropping, and likewise are
report card grades.
Tne most apparent reason for tnis
problem is, as lvlr. Kessler said, "a lack
of effort, dedication, and motiva-
tion." It was not tne gualitv tnat was
suffering, but tne willingness to put
fortn an effort.
Mrs. Eisemann felt tnat tnis wasn't
too great of a problem if colleges
were lowering tneir standards. l-low-
ever, if tne colleges weren't lowering
tneir expectations, tnen manv stu-
dents will be unprepared. Vvnen asked
now sne tnougnt tnis problem could
be solved, sne answered witn a smile,
"lf l knew tnat..." Sne was trving not
to lower ner expectations, tnougn,
and noped tnat students would be
forced to applv tnemselves more.
Tnere is one answer tnat seems to
be working successfully at GHS. in tne
Basic Matn Program tnere is a new
course called, "Calculator Assisted
ani - ,,
Math fOV Everyone Living, OV CAMEL.
Tnis is an individualized course in
wnicn it is possible for everv student
to be in a different book. Tne stu-
dents read tnrougn tneir books,
worked problems, and took tneir
tests wnen tnev felt readv, Tnev
graded tneir own work, and tne
teacner was tnere just to answer
questions. Tne idea of tnis program is
tnat wnile tne students were learning
tneir basic facts tnev would retain
more if tnev saw tne correct answer
everv time. A calculator could give
tnem a correct answer mucn more
often tnan if tnev worked out tne
problem in tneir neads. Tne students
were graded bv tne number of
pamphlet-like books wriicn tnev
passed bv an 8071 margin. Tne mot-
ivation in tnese students seemed
to be improving witn tnis new
lvlanv students didn't want to
work and were unwilling to acnieve
unless pusned. Teacners were trv-
ing to use new metnods of getting
students interested. Tnev were
also refusing to lower tneir expec-
tations, in nopes tnat students
would studv more. As junior

There was a lot of "willing suspen-
sion of disbelief" going on in the Eng-
lish department, namely in lvlrs. lvler-
ril's science fiction class. "The willing
suspension of disbelief is telling your-
self to believe something improbable
for the sake of understanding the
plot of a story," said Elizabeth Kline.
Kline, author of Reconciliations and
Approaches, travelled throughout llli-
nois this year. She visited classrooms
in both primary and secondary
schools in illinois and taught students
basic writing skills, such as the willing
suspension of disbelief. Besides
science fiction, she visited several
other classes in the English depart-
ment. Kline, a mother herself, said
teenagers were her favorite. "High
school is a fun age, it's a time when
everything is opening up."
Students in the science fiction class
really appreciated Kline's talents. "She
really helped me become a better
writer," said junior Jeanne lvlurphy. ln
the science fiction class, Kline collabo-
rated with the students in writing a
story. Together they discussed and
agreed upon characters, plot, and
setting. Individually, students wrote
their own stories, borrowing from the
class' story and adding their own per-
sonal touches. Senior Ron Nelson said,
'She opened my eyes to several new
Kline also visited creative writing
classes and freshman and sophomore
level English classes. She not only
helped the students write a story but
also told them about herself. After
hearing about her origins and career
as a writer and her family life, fresh-
man Tony Ulm commented, "She's a
nice lady, and she leads a really inter-
When asked what subjects are
included in the Home Economics
department, chairman Jimmy Crown
replied, "...art, home ec., vocal, and
instrumental music." lvlr. Browning, in
regards as to why the department
had such a variety of sub-topics said,
"Vvith one and one half teachers in
many areas, you don't need a full time
chairperson for every different sec-
tion." lvlr. Crown made sure his
department ran smoothly, efficiently,
and effectively, as well as met the
needs of the students and the dis-
trict and department's goals and
objectives. Concerning each depart-
ment's accomplishments. the G.l-l.S.
band went to State and did duite
well, the choir went to l.S.U., and the
home ec. section, according to Mr.
Crown, "makes some of the best
darn apple pies I have ever eaten."
The art exhibit held at the mall in
April was a success with Sheila
Weese winning "Best of Show". The
art display in the gymnasium went
over well with the students.
Freshman Dana Ronk commented,
"l was impressed with the turnout
of the work I saw. l'm glad to see
we have such talent in our school."
Even with all of the intense prepa-
ration, the art room has a very
relaxed atmosphere. The kidding
around between classmates is
proven by senior Ryan Eakins, "l'm
wonderful and nobody ever tells
me how wonderful I am." Seriously
now, art is an extremely personal
thing. The feeling displayed and
hidden in a piece is between the
artist and his art.

QQ ACADEMICS QU
Just a sit
Social Studies programs were more
exciting than ever this year! Teachers
drew from many sources to break the
boredom of a constantly used text-
book. Civics classes saw movies that
were fast-paced with good plots, The
movies got students interested, and
gave students an opportunity to
view the governmental system in
new, exciting ways. "lvir. Smith goes
to Washington" was one of these
films. ln the film, lvir. Smith became a
senator in spite of his lack of knowl-
edge or prior experience. Students
actually laughed as they learned how
to get a bill passed into law. Other
materials used were pamphlet read-
ings, the Framework series of movies,
and of course, the textbook.
Mr. Busse used a new idea this year
in one of his government classes. He
worked out a program similar to
Youth and Government that was
shortened to take place in one day.
Students were required to write bills

that the program made it easier for

Other social studies classes
included: world history, sociology and
American studies. kristen Kutzner, a
sophomore, said, "I thought world
history was interesting, and l learned
a lot. The movies were a nice break
from the textbook."
Sociology classes this year divided
into groups and analyzed old year-
books. They compared them to more
recent yearbooks. Senior Kurt
Podeszwa said, "lt was neat to see

Throughout this time of innovation
in the social studies department, one
factor has remained constant:

structure. To the surprise-often not
so pleasant surprise-of many foreign

language students, foreign Ian-
guage classes at GHS went far
beyond grammatical concepts.
Incorporated in the actual study of
the language were studies in Span-
ish, Latin American, French, Ger-
man, and ancient cultures. Many
students were eager only to gain
knowledge about the countries in
which the language they studied
was spoken. Teachers in the for-
eign language department, how-
ever, believed study of culture to
be absolutely necessary. "You have
to give what you're teaching rele-
vance," said Miss Pennington. "lt's
hard to learn dry grammatical con-
cepts without knowing the
cultures behind them."
AFS student Samuel Ortiz, who lives
in Columbia, agreed. "Foreign lan-
guage is a lot like a photography class
I took. Before we could take pictures,
we had to learn how to use the
camera. You have to know the work-
ing of the machine before you can
use it. Just the same, you have to
know of a culture before you can
speak its language," he said.
Pennington listed several other
benefits of knowledge of other cul-
tures. She and other teachers in the
department felt that ours is an ego-
centric culture, expecting itself to be
universally known while ignoring
other cultures completely, Penning-
ton said that a lot of stereotyping of
foreign countries and their inhabit-
ants occurs in this country and cultu-
ral education could combat it. "There
comes a time," she said, "when you
come to realize that our way is not
the only way." She went on to say, "lt
puts one's world, nation, and self in
perspective and shows that everyone
in the world is basically the same."
Do you think a mole is an animal
which lives underground? Or that the'
speed of light is how fast Superman
can fly? Do you think that DNA is a
new rock group? If you answered
yes to any of these duestions, Gales-
DUTQ High School's science depart-
ment could help you. According to
Bruce Spencer, department chair-
man, "A lot of very well qualified
faculty members are in the science
department. We offer a wide range
of courses that will meet the needs
of all students here at the high
school." There are eight instructors
in the department, and thirteen
courses available. The programs
offered such as life or physical
science and biology can meet the
basic requirements. Like many do,
one may choose to continue with
advanced biology, chemistry, or
physics. Gi-lS had a schedule to fit
everyone's needs, whether it was
just the basics, or a program for
those who plan to maior in a science
in college, lvlr. Spencer also added,
"Most kids have two years or more in
the sciences, and in Illinois, universi-
ties require at least two years." Still
confused? One may catagorize the
department like this: if it's green and
slimy, it's biology, if it smells, it's
chemistry, and if it doesn't work, it's
physics. Whatever the decision, a
student could receive a good, solid
foundation at Galesburg High School.

"GHS nas a very fine, well-developed
curriculum in tne business depart-
ment," said David Gunderson,
department cnairman. Tne business
department offered twenty-five
courses for students' general educa-
tional development as well as options
for preparation for employment.
Tnere were courses in tne business
department to satisfy and compli-
ment tne interests and abilities of all
students wnetner students were
preparing for college, interested in
entering tne world of work upon
completion of nign scnool, or unde-
cided about future plans. Every stu-
dent snould try at some time in tneir
four years at GHS to enroll in a typing
class. This was tne foundation of tne
business field. Tnen, if one cnose to
continue on to accounting, business
matn, snortnand, or otner classes, tne
basic orientation and developing of
skills nave begun. Finally, as a cap-
stone course, office occupations put
to use tne acquired skills in tne world
of business. Witn computers rapidly
becoming a part of our lives, it was
very important to master tne toucn
system of tne keyboard. Since tne fall
of 19811, GHS nas been fortunate
enougn to nave 25 Apple IIS compu-
ters, tnis is excluding tne 9 computers
in tne mini-lab. "We are lucky to nave
11 business instructors under one
roof, because tney are essentially
nelping us to become more produc-
tive workers in today's society,"
commented junior Nancy Davis. So
wnetner one cnose a clerical or
secretarial field, to work witn compu-
ters or data processing, or in tne
areas of marketing and management,
tne preparation and experience tney
received from tne business depart-
ment was ranked witn tne best.
Andrew Bailey works at tne computer in tne
"Our goal is to get kids as involved
as possible and to do wnatever we
can to get tne students to feel good
about tnemselves," explained special
education department cnairman Bill
Sargent. At GHS eiglity to ninety per-
cent of tne developmentally disabled
were involved witn tne organization
Campus Pride. lt was unlike any otner
club in tnat tney wove tneir activities
and projects into tneir daily classes.
For instance, if tne inventory nad
been off one day at tne candy coun-
ter, tne analysis of tne problem would
nave been dealt witn in tne matn
or consumer education classes. Tne
credo was "to service tne faculty
and students and to beautify tne
campus." Tnere were ten teacners
and two aids in tne department.
Tne overall goal was to make tneir
students a part of tne scnool and
to give tnem a sense of self-wortn.
Tnis was not excluding tne basics
treading, writing, and aritnmeticl.
Tne special education students
were like any group of kids. Tney
strove to acnieve tneir goals, to
obtain tne best education possible,
and to be of benefit to Galesburg
High Scnool. Few otners realized
tne importance of tne 180 stu-
dents until tney came in contact
witn tneir services. Wnetner it was
tne re-doing of tne Abe Lincoln in tne
early seventies, refinishing and
rebuilding tne podium in tne audito-
rium, managing tne candy counter,
recovering tne cusnions by Mrs.
Dralle's desk, or taking care of tne
marduis, one snould not take for
granted students of a caring, sincere
Tnere were ways to earn PE credits
at GHS besides taking ordinary, run-
of-tne-mill gym classes. One way was
to take Beginning Dance, wnicn is
taugnt by lvlrs. MacDonald, Tne class,
wnicn was open to juniors and
seniors, was started in 1983, and nas
grown eacn year in popularity. it cov-
ers sucn areas as aerobics, beginning
tap, modern dance, and jazz dance.
Junior Susie l-lawortn liked tne class
because "Sne snows us respect and
treats us like we know wnat we're
doing. it's a cnallenge, but it's also a
lot of fUVl!"
lvlrs, MacDonald said, "The girls wno
sign up for tnis class nave to nave dis-
cipline, because it is, in fact, more cnal-
lenging tnan a regular girls' PE class.
Tney really seem to enjoy tnemselves,
tnougn, and it's one of my favorite
classes to teacnf'
Anotner way to earn PE credit was
to sign up for Outdoor Living, a
course designed to give students
appreciation of skills used to enjoy
nature. lvlr. Bruington explained wnat
made Outdoor Living different from
otner PE classes. "Tnere's more
empnasis on learning tne skills and
naving a good time. I enjoy teacnlng
tnis class very mucn because it deals
witn subjects tnat l'm very interested
in." Some of tne areas covered are
fisning, gun safety, boating, canoeing,
arcnery, and ice fisning. Wnen asked
nis reasons for taking Outdoor Living,
senior Bobby Carter said, "l needed
tne PE credit and it sounded pretty
cl . .,,. 1
interesting, so l decided to give it a
try. l'm glad I took it-it nelped me to
better understand and respect tne
outdoors." Senior Mark Roy described
it as, "A class wortn taking. You nad

The tea came down, but on his head

On Valentine's Day the students of GHS experienced unusual at the high school, a live band. It went something like this. The lights go
up. The band comes on. The crowd cheers. The band starts to play. Bob sings, but nobody can hear him. The instruments are barely
audible in the packed cafeteria. The PA borrowed by the band from district 205 couldn't even deafen a houseplant.Bob gets
fru'strated and homicide crosses his mind more with each of the growing problems. John gets nervous and starts to shake. Not the
soulful shaking of Elvis or Little Richard, but the tense and frightened tremble of someone about to die. Paul and Brian act as if they are
in a roll-on commercial. Bryan is unaffected due to genetic alterations and Paul, wearing smokey black sunglasses, can't even see how
many people there really are out there. Chris is too hyper to be nervous. Drummers are crazy. The gig was plagued by problems,
including the fact that the principal would not let the band fly their banner. Granted it was a replica of Old Glory with an up-side-down
smiley face in the blue field. And although they sounded great, you never knew it.
They redeemed themselves, however, by rocking the talent show. The band performed its more popular songs. "Butt-Ugly Women,"
"Kerry," and las a complete surprise to everyone on Saturday Nighti "l'm Gonna Go to the Bowling Alley and Kill Somebody."
They began as Johnny and the Nosehairs but after over thirty shifts in personnel, they became the hot-rockin', boot stompin',
steam-rollin', booty-kickin' band, innocent Byproduct. At this point they acquired Karen O'Connor, their manager. Since this is the age
of video, the band shot two. One for "Butt-Ugly Woman" and the other for "l'm Gonna Go to the Bowling Alley and Kill Somebody."
These were shown at the video dance and got a favorable reaction from the crowd. They played other bands material but seemed to
have the best success with their original songs. They had about twelve by the end of the year.
The bands current lineup is: Paul Asaro ikeyboards and vocall, Bryan Hagerla ilead guitar and vocalsl, Bob Harrison llead vocals and
bassi, Chris Mast ldrums and vocalsl, and John "Johnny" Riess irhythm guitar and vocalsi.
Their debut album "Meat innocent Byproduct" contains all their original compositions and now available on tape, iseriouslyi.
Although the band members are going their separate ways, they plan to keep in touch and form other bands on their own. John: The
Unrelated Brothers, Bob: Broken Rodent, Paul: The Paul Asaro Trio, Bryan: Pool of Drool, and Chris. Tranvestites in Drag.
"Through the good times and the bad times we stuck together and that is what innocent Byproduct is all about."A-innocent

Tvvo world leaders, tvvo long days,
and two accomplishments summed
up the 1985 Geneva talks. Ronald Rea-

November 21 and 22. Upon his return
to the US. after the talks, Reagan
spoke optimistically of "clearing the
air" and "eliminating distrust." Hovv-
ever, the unspoken fact remained: no
agreements were reached, none on
nuclear vveaponry cutbacks and none
on "Star Wars."
The major forces opposing agree-

An election in the Philippines this

exercise in democracy. A closer look,
however, exposed a vast amount of
corruption and violence. incumbent

tested by Corazon Aquino, whose
husband Benigno Aquino, Jr. was an
opposition leader assasinated two
During the weeks before the elec-
tion, repeated incidents of violence
occurred for which Marcos followers
were responsible. OH the day of the
election and during the weeks that
followed, Marcos and his followers-
many of whom were responsible for
vote tallylng-were accused of cor-
ruption. Because of the pandomo-
nium resulting from the violence and
the accusations of corruption on
both sides, there was no clear-cut
winner. Both Marcos and Aquino
claimed the victory. l-lowever, Marcos
finally fled after losing the support of
the leaders of his regime, the middle
class, and the church. He and his wife
lmelda fled to the US., leaving the Phi-
lippines joyous over their emancipa-
tion from his 20 year regime.
Aquino, still in shock over her

South African unrest has come in
cycles during this century. The unrest
has always arisen due to a clash
between the plack race and the
white race and has always ended in
repression rather than reform.
Unrest prevailed last April as white
police opened fire on black demon-
strators in Vitenage. Nineteen people
died that day, and SOO people, almost
all of them plack, were killed in similar
upheavals pefore President PW.
Botha declared a state of emergency
months later, During this state of
emergency, apartheid-a structure
of racial separation-was more rigidly
enforced than ever. More and more
parks, peaches, stores, and restau-
rants allowed only white people on
the premises. The opiective of these
new restrictions was to "Quiet tnings

On January 28, 1986 the Space
Shuttle Challenger exploded 75
seconds after lift-off. Of the seven
mempers of its crew, including
teacher Christa lvlcAuliffe, there
were no survivors.
After the initial shock and sup-
seduent mourning, the nation
started asking questions- What will
happen to the space program?
What happened to the Challenger?
And most importantly and pro-
foundly1Why? The only answer
immediately given, and given py
Reagan himself, was that the space
program would continue to oper-
ate and space shuttles would con-
tinue to pe launched.
In the months that followed the
explosion, hearings were held to
expose the nature of the disaster.
The flaw seemed to pe in the solid
rocket pooster. The flaw also
seemed to pe in the communica-
tion among the men who ulti-
mately decided whether or not to
launch. Despite a teleconference
uniting these men the evening
pefore the launch, former Secre-
tary of State William Rogers
charged, "Everyone was not aware
of what everyone else recom-
The answer to the final ciuestion
could only pe speculated. No one
knew why this happened. One of
the most popular speculative
answers to this duestion was that
the nation suffered from "Co-
fever", Americans were so anxious
to see this launch that satisfying
them was made a higher priority
than the safety of the flight. Top
NASA officials agreed that this
year's launch schedule was simply
Whatever the cause of the disas-
ter, NASA went all out in a cam-
paign to make sure it never
happens again. William Rogers set
up a commission to determine the
cause of the explosion. Also, a
committee was assempled solely
for the purpose of deciding
whether or not to launch. "lt is
essential," Rogers said, "that we
have a space program that values
the human life."
Controversy continued to sur-
round the AIDS epidemic through-
out the year. One area of this
national controversy was the dues-
tion of E:iIIOWIVlQ AIDS VICUITTS CO
attend puplic schools. Health and
school authorities in Illinois felt that
these students should pe allowed
in puplic schools. These officials felt
there was sufficient AIDS research
proving the harmlessness of class-
room contract to make the spread
of the disease highly unlikely.
Another facet of the AIDS con-
troversy was its link with plood
transfusion. Because of this the
knox County Chapter of the Red
cross failed to receive the 85 to 100
units it needed daily to supply the
knox County region, To remedy
this, the Knox County Red Cross

paign to dispel ignorances about

ing out of the closet as a homosex-
ual with AIDS. Hudson's death put

Measuring 7.8 on the rictor scale,
the earthquake that rocked lvlexico
City on September 20 was the
strongest since 1975. Three days
passed before the earth quieted
completely and the final death toll
was a devastating SOOO. The major
cause of these deaths was the col-
lapse of hundreds of buildings within
the metropolis. Surprisingly, the build-
ings that fell in the greatest numbers
were those most recently erected.
The majority of the buildings with his-
torical value survived the quake and
suffered little internal damage.
After the damage was done, a
team of French rescue experts came
to the city in an attempt to rescue
people trapped in the rubble of build-
ings. Their attempts were successful
in the case of a young boy trapped in
the ruins of a hospital.
Ten OHS. students who were visit-
ing lvlexico City just six weeks before
the earthquake were shocked. Junior
Diana Ascencio, who had also visited
the city a year before, had developed
friendships with some of the people
there. "I was shocked," she said,
"because l have friends down there
and I don't know if they are dead or
alive." Along with shock came sad-
ness. Senior Jennifer Squires said, "l
felt very, very sad. Not only because l

of the great losses of families and the
destruction of a lot of beautiful
Nineteen eighty-five was a year dur-
ing which the music industry concen-
trated on fund raising. lt all began
when Band Aid was assembled for
Christmas 1984 in Europe. American
pop singers assembled their own ver-
sion with USA for Africa. ln an effort
to make the famine plight universal,
Bob Geldorf of the Boomtown Rats
organized Live-Aid, a concert featur-
ing the world's foremost pop stars.
The effort was successful and Geldorf
achieved instant fame as a champion
of famine relief. Geldorf became frus-
trated, however, when he learned
that millions of dollars raised for the
least fortunate members of the third
world were, for the most part, inef-
fective. l-le decided to give up what
he considered a futile fight and go
back to a more satisfying occupation:
Not all music industry fund raising
was for famine relief. In October,
artists from every facet of the music
industry gathered in Champaign-
Urbana for Farm-Aid. The event,
planned and produced by Willie Nel-
son and John Cougar lvlellencamp,
raised millions of dollars for American
farmers, who faced an overabundance
of financial difficulties.
On October 7, 1985 four men claim-
ing loyalty to the PLO hijacked the
Achille Lauro, an Italian cruise ship.
American interest in the situation
rose when former passengers of the
ship said that Americans were still
aboard. The hijackers surrendered
after two days and denied killing or
hurting any of the hostages. Western
diplomats later discovered, however,
that the hijackers did kill Leon Kling-
hoffer, a partially paralyzed 69-year-
old man from New York City. Out-
raged, US. officials agreed to an
italian murder trial, but demanded
extradition afterwards. This plan was
foiled when Egyptian authorities-
under whose custody the hijackers
were originally-allowed the men to

Fortunately, good taste and 'In the Spirit of...' prevailed.,
The staff also returned with the best of intentions to use their

They walked down the sidewalk. The air they were breathing
was gray and smelled of raw sewage. Sounds of traffic and unin-
tellegible voices bombarded them in their fight for dominance
over one another. They looked out into the street to discover six
lanes of V.W. bugs, all going in the same direction. They turned
their heads and looked down. Sitting on the sidewalk with out-
stretched arms and cupped hands were beggars asking them to
share their obvious wealth. A bizarre dream? No, it's the first
taste of Mexican culture that ten G.H.S. students got when the
Interact Travel Seminars took them on a two week vacation to
Mexico and Costa Rica.
Although "the pollution took some getting used to," as junior
Crystal Hawkinson politely put it, Mexico City probably had
enough in its favor to counteract its filth. For the historian there
were Diego Rivera's murals that display the entire history of
Mexico. There were also the Aztec ruins, only recently exca-
vated in the heart of the city. For the smart shopper there were
the San juan and Ciudadela markets where one could have bar-
gained for just about anything with highly depreciated pesos.
In sharp contrast to Mexico City's population of sixteen mil-
lion, Costa Rica's capital city, San jose, has a population of only
one million and a small area considering it's population.
"lt's still very beautiful and untouched," said senior Jennifer
Squires of the country. "lt's not industrialized or marred by
organization." With the exception of San jose and the area that
surrounds it, Costa Rica consists almost solely of mountain and
jungle area spotted with small towns.
The group's stay in Costa Rica consisted of four days at Jaco
Hotel ta resort on the Pacific coastl and one day in the small

rustic port city, Puerto Limon.
"Overall, it was an experience l'd never trade," said junior
Kerry Ulm. "lt gave me an insight into Central America and
objectivity towards North America."
For those who did not have the opportunity to experience
different cultures in the countries where they originated, there
were foreign exchange students roaming the halls of G.H.S.,
each one representing a small piece of his culture.
One such person was Thierry Dumoulin, an exchange student
from Belgium. He lived in the home of senior Guy West and
freshman Nancy West. For the family, it took a lot of effort and
patience to make it work. "Making someone you don't know
feel at home can be difficult," said Nancy. Having been an
exchange student in the Netherlands, Guy had some prior
knowledge about strangers in a strange home. 'fThe most diffi-
cult thing is toleration," he said, "especially when you do things
one way and they do things another. Tolerance is a virtue."
Thierry, known as Terry by his American acquaintances, not
only had to overcome a different home, but also a very different
school. ln a sharp contrast to the restrictions of most U.S.
schools, schools in Belgium offer a relaxed atmosphere. Students
listened to music during class, drink beer with their lunch, and
stay in the same room all day while teachers move from class to
Despite the cultural differences Thierry brought to the West
home, their living situation was a harmonious one. Was there
any friction? Nancy smiled and replied, "Getting to know a per-
son from another country is worth it."

tired of fish. junior julie Timmons said, "Homecoming was great.
I was skeptical at first, but everything was a total success," junior
Eric Strack, who was on the Board of Directors said, "We really

The Artte Club was greatly affected by the death of Mr. Russell
Benjamin who was one of their advisors. In his memory Artte
Club held a dance. The money from the dance went to the
Russell Benjamin Memorial Fund.
Of course, Artte Club had the usual fund raisers for their trip
at the end of the year. One fundraiser was providing decorations
for the Policeman's Ball. The pay-off for their hard work was a
Saturday at the Chicago Art Museum.
Sweetheart Swirl was the last big event for Artte Club other
than their trip. Senior Dawn McCarthy said, "Artte Club is a lot
of work, but it's great fun." " 'Crazy for You' and the decorations
were rather crazy, too. We tried some new things this year and
were very successful, not only Sweetheart Swirl, but throughout
the whole year," said Artte Club advisor Mr. jimmie Crown.

Nineteen eighty-five was full of changes for the GHS band, but
they pulled through and again left a favorable mark in GHS
As usual, the band began practicing two weeks before school
started, but this year the director was Douglas Stotter instead of
Sally Rynott. The selection of a new director occurred late in the
summer, and therefore much of the responsibility of perpetuat-
ing traditions and establishing daily routines and style of march-
ing rested with senior members because of their experience.
Senior drum major Annette Funkhouser said, "It was frustrating
having the responsibility of continued success placed on the
seniors, but we tried not to give up."
The formerly disciplined, regimented atmosphere was trans-
formed to one more loosely structured. "It was more fun!", was
a typical feeling among members. However, since the stricter
set-up had been in effect for 17 years, many people, especially
seniors, found it difficult to accept the difference. Senior Annie
Karjala said, "Change is always hard to take, but what really
made it hard this year was the enormity of the change. We had to
get used to a whole new person with completely different ideas
and still try to get the same goals accomplished." Sophomore
Christine Roos commented, "I think changes are good, but this
one was so sudden and so big that it was hard to accept it."
Eventually, the newness wore off and the band again worked
together toward success. However, the group was not as closely
knit as before. "The extra freedom meant less concentration on
band and more on other things. We had less of a common bond
because of it," said senior Missy Carlton. Sophomore Michele
Verebelyi added, "lt killed our 'family'. There's no unity any-
more." When asked what freshmen felt about the arrangement,
freshman Angie Hawkinson said, "We just have to accept it the
way it is because we don't know how it was before."
Despite the adjustments, the Marching Streaks performed well
at football half-times and at state competition at the University of
Illinois on October 19. They did almost as well as previous years
with the band placing fourth on field and second on parade.
Senior band president Shelly Anderson said, "When we applied
our previously learned self-discipline, desire, and leadership, we
came out with a successful marching season."
When asked what he thought of his first year, Mr. Stotter said,
"lt was the hardest work I've ever done and the most fun l've

inexperienced with auxillary, but we were capable of pulling off
a terrific season by ourselves. That's a wonderful feeling.
Of the sixteen member flag corps, one half were freshmen and
of seven rifles, five were freshmen. "It was a lot of hard work
because I was really nervous about being good enough," said
freshman rifle Vicki Fields. junior rifle captain julie White said,
"It was a really new experience for me to be a leader instead of a
follower. The freshmen rifles could have made it hard for me,
but they were a big help because they worked so hard."
Because of the changes, there was more work involved in
putting the show together. However, the dedication never fal-
tered, and the tradition of success was maintained.

In the middle of October, band members were informed that
in order to determine symphonic and concert bands, try-outs
would begin immediately after the University of Illinois March-
ing Competition. Even the past members who had met previous
requirements had to audition again. To be placed in the top
band, members had to be fluent with major scales, to sight read
well, and to play excerpts from the required piece, "Four Scot-
tish Dances". Auditions were held over a two week period, and
everyone was anxious to see the results.
Before and after school and during the fourth hour, students
lined up to test their skills. The bandroom was no longer the
relief spot for band members, but a tension-filled room contain-
ing the practicing students. "Everybody was hugely tense,"
commented senior Annie Karjala. Once in the office, Mr. Stotter
asked for the requirements and then gave a sight reading piece.
The time seemed to pass quickly and only a long wait for the
results were left.
The results were posted at 4:30 that Friday. Most people did
not find out until the following Monday. There were many dis-
appointed members, but the elite that were allowed in Sym-
phonic Band felt their hard work and determination had paid
off. Stated freshman Tony Cinnaman, "I was surprised when I
found out I made it, but I was happy!"
Before a performance it is natural for any player to be nervous,
but for Concert Band members, the tension was perhaps a little
higher. Since the Concert Band was the first to perform at the
concert, the members arrived fifteen minutes earlier than the
Symphonic Band members. Before the students met in the band-
room, many members made final uniform checks and tried to
catch up on the latest news. They tuned their instruments several
times and Director Dan Fryer went over last minute music
reminders. Then it was time to go on stage. Stage fright was often
a factor in individual performances. Freshman Tim Kennett said,
"I go out on stage, and I see a lot of people out there, and I'm
scared I'm going to mess up." When the curtain opened and the
first song began, their hard work was evident. With the audience
applause and the close of the curtain, a collective sigh of relief
was given. Freshman joanne Browning commented, "Afterwards
I was pretty relieved and happy that I didn't have to practice
One of the old GHS traditions was continued with the forma-
tion of a jazz band. jazz Band was a small group of band
members who got together informally to play "fun" music. They
had a chance to improvise and develop their individual talent.
The jazz Band practiced after school two or three times a week.
Since the group was extra-curricular and a rather new idea for
most members, getting everything together was a difficult task.
Freshman Chris Wright commented, "Even though we did pretty
well, we could have done better if we'd had more people and
more interest." X
Director Douglas Stotter said, "After many months of struggle,
the jazz Band achieved great success at this year's Spring con-
cert." The jazz Band was a new addition to the Spring Concert. F '14
Commented sophomore jaime Lozano, "It's a lot different from
last year because we have a concert to work towards."
The members enjoyed the smaller group which gave them a
chance to display their individual talents. Senior Scott Dennis
said, "I enjoy playing jazz and I like playing in a smaller group. lt
gave me the chance to be an individual." The basic purpose of
jazz Band is to have a good time, and the members certainly did
that. Said junior Rob Rupert, "It was more casual and not as
strict. You just sit back and have fun."

Seeking guidance about their love lives students turned to the
Budget for answers The Budget sponsored compatability sur
veys. These surveys done by a computer showed most compat
able dates in the school, based upon a questionaire containing
such thought-provoking questions as "What do you think about
parachuting?" and "How much time do you study per week?"
"We sold over 2,000 lists," said sophomore Budget member
and rotating editor jeremy Swanson, "The response was aston-
ishing. Before we sold them, the entire staff placed bets on how
many lists we'd sell. The end result exceded any of our guesses."

A fun and productive way to spend a free hour was to be a hall
cadet, library cadet, or a lab assistant. It was a great way to use
one's free hour constructively.
What did a hall cadet do? A hall cadet took messages to stu-
dents and teachers. These messages included notes from counse-
lors or teachers, phone-a-grams twhich seemed to be very popu-
larl, lunches or lunch money, and occasional notes regarding
clubs and organizations.
Many hall cadets enjoyed their work. They were allowed to
roam the halls which was a great source of exercise. junior Heidy
Nicaise said, "I like being a hall cadet, but it is so embarrassing
when I walk into a class and my friends start talking to me."
To be a library cadet was a little different. Library cadets filled
out library cards, put books back on the shelves, and helped in
the general flow of work that arose in taking care of the library.

There were advantages to being a library cadet. Mainly one
got to know his abc's really well. One also gained an in-depth
understanding of the Dewey Decimal system. Beyond that,
library cadets got to see many people during their hours of work.
Laboratory assistants were completely different. They helped
chemistry classes in many ways. They helped with labs, labeling
chemicals, stocking chemicals, and all the nitty-gritty work. lun-
ior Nancy Davis said, "I think Mr. Spencer is wonderful, and I
like the challenge of seeing whether or not I can blow up the
lab." One gained a lot of knowledge of chemicals while being a
lab assistant. For the devoted chemistry student it was fun and
not too demanding.
Hall cadets, library cadets, and lab assistants were a big help to
the school. They kept the office, the library, and the chemistry
labs running as smoothly as possible.

f'We were very well received by the teachers and the students."
The choirs were also involved in contests this year, compiling

During the year an effective and efficient method of commun-
ication was developed. Last summer, Barry Swanson and Glenn
Busse believed that a better means of communication between
students and administration was needed. The Student Advisory
Council provided an opportunity for students and the adminis-
tration to logically discuss activities, new policies and various
other topics. The input of both students and the administration
was equally considered and respected before decisions were
made. The council itself included two administrators: the advisor
to Student Council and the Associate Principal. The president
and vice-president of Student Council and the student represen-
tative to the Board of Education were automatically part of the
council. The other members were students, one of which
represented each class.
Ideas for a variety of changes throughout the year came from
SAC: the dress code, picnic tables, juke box, Project Sparkle, and
Voices. Throughout the year, the Student Advisory Council
proved its worth, and it will remain to help solve problems that

Student Council accomplished many things this year. In addi-
tion to planning, organizing, and supervising Homecoming and
Spirit Week, the Council branched out into a new area by
becoming involved with the Hopewell District Student Council
and the Illinois Association of Student Councils. Sixteen GHS
students attended the Hopewell District Convention in Peoria
on March 19, where Student Council president Heather Zeigler
was honored as Student Council Member of the Year. Glenn
Busse received honorable mention as Advisor of the Year. In
May, Heather Zeigler, Jana Riess, Roya Babanoury and Anna
Burga attended the IASC State Convention in Chicago.

included installing a jukebox in the cafeteria maintaining a Stu-

Every other Thursday a group of students gathered together to
share one common interest, their relationship with God. The
Fellowship of Christian Athletes meetings were organized by the
six officers: president, senior Annette Funkhouser, vice-
presidents, seniors jamie Bledsoe and Nancy Fross, secretaries,
junior Lisa Anderson and senior Susie Browning, and treasurer,
senior Lynne Bellamy. The driving force was their outside con-
tact, Rev. john Helveston, who founded Galesburg High
School's FCA in 1982. Youth director of the Covenant Church,
Marlin Anderson agreed to take over the duties of john Helves-
ton in 1987 when john and his family go to the Philippines.

Besides their regular meetings, FCA held a fun night during
April to help alleviate the spring fever going around. The YMCA
was opened for students so that they could come to participate
in swimming and raquetball, or the mini volleyball tournament.
To end the year FCA held a breakfast, where the new officers
were announced and a farewell to the seniors and john Helves-
ton was given. FCA regained a closeness that was lost in previous
years when there was record-breaking attendance. Said senior
Ruth Sandoval, "FCA is a place where I can honestly feel comfor-
table talking about God with my peers. I think that is more spe-
cial than anything."

To prepare for future careers in agriculture, fifty-nine GHS
students participated in Future Farmers of America lFFAj. This
year's preparation began early during the summer as several
sophomores, juniors, and seniors attended leadership conferen-
ces and camps across the country from Washington, D.C. to
Kansas City. Their preparation paid off in the variety of competi-
tions the FFA chapter attended. In this year's VOAG lvocational-
agriculturej fair, sophomore Mark Conner won Reserve Cham-
pion Market Lamb and junior Scott Mitchell won Grand
Champion Beef Female. On October 3, Galesburg FFA chapter

In the Section 4 Foundation Awards Contest on February 12, the
Galesburg FFA Chapter placed first in ten out of thirteen areas.
The FFA participated in many other school and community activ-
ities. On September 23 they held their annual Hamburger Fry
where new members were officially initiated. The GHS chapter
also organized the line-up of the Homecoming parade and
ignited and extinguished the Homecoming bonfire.

Spanish Club had an active and successful year, fueled by a
hard-working group of leaders who planned and organized.
They kicked off the year with a picnic involving all four language
clubs. junior Nancy Davis said, "Oh, that was fun! I had fun, I
think everybody had fun!"
Spanish Club had two fundraisers this year to collect money
for the end-of-the-year trip. Food was the key word. Cookie and
nut sales, followed by the cheese and sausage sales, raised the
required funds. The Christmas season brought caroling and par-
ties, both of which drew large crowds.
Spanish Club was in charge of the food at the Valentine party.
They provided more than enough goodies to last the entire

French Club also attended the kick-off picnic to begin the
year. They, too, had to raise money for the trip. They sold
M8tM's in the fall and during the winter season sold over two
hundred carnations for Valentines Day. Sophomore Anna Burga
commented, "It was a terrific way to make money, but we were
disorganized and had an awful time distributing them."
French Club was in charge of music for the Foreign Language
Valenties Day party. They compiled a dicotomy of music, provid-
ing something for everyone's taste. The French Club closed their
year by joining the other foreign languages for the Chicago trip.

The Cadets had an impromptu
ending to their "Hey" perform-

"5,6,7,8...! Point your toes! Head up! Smile!" Those are some
familiar sounds that echoed from the south balcony as the
Cadets practiced every day after school from the beginning of
the year until their performance at the last home basketball
The Cadets practiced almost everyday from 3:15 to 5:00. Many
hours of practicing, costuming, coaching and choreographing
went into each performance. Senior captain Beth Fitch said, "We
practiced for hours on each routine, and it all came down to
about two minutes on the floor."
For their second performance at the basketball game against
Quincy, the Cadets put in extra time practicing and costuming.

the coach, lo MacDonald, choreographed the routine to the
Romantics' song "That's What I Like About You". The Cadets did
their own costuming for that routine. They wore orange T-shirts
with "Hey" on the front and orange and white striped shorts.
There were many late practices and early morning hours put in
because of the difficulty of the routine. Senior Jenni Kisler said,
"We had to practice extra hard and pick things up quickly
because Marci wasn't going to be able to be at every practice."
Senior Lynne Bellamy said, "There were times, like at 5:30 a.m.
when I was getting up for 7:00 a.m. practice, that I wondered if
all the time spent practicing was worth it, but when you're out

Two long-standing institutions at GHS, one traditionally males
and the other females, went co-ed this year. G-Club, the boys'
letterwinners' organization, combined with the Girls' Varsity Let-
terwinners to form the new G-Club. ln addition to this merger,
G-Club became much more visible. The G-Club officers organ-
ized their members for fund raisers. These included mainly the
traditional concessions sales and the ever-present program
hawkers at football and basketball games.
G-Club established a new tradition during basketball season,
having designated letterwinners raise the flag during the
National Anthem before the games.
On May 15, the G-Club members and their parents gathered

was the speaker. But most importantly the letterwinners
received recognition. Seniors were given plaques with a listing
of their achievements and athletic director joe Campanelli
awarded some special honors. Seniors Keith Vandermeulen and
Becky Roberts were given the MVP and laycette Awards, respec-
tively. Senior Chris Kleine received the Chuck Bednar Award for
most valuable baseball player, and seniors Brad Statham and
Deidre Ponzer received the Gerald D. Phillips Scholar - Athlete
The G-Club changed during the year, but the tradition and
prestige of being a varsity letterwinner remained the same.

A college student needed help and Key Club was there. Key
Club members loaned S100 to a student entering ISU. This all
came about over Christmas vacation. Mrs. Delores Ford, the club
sponsor, called the president of Key Club, Collette Haraszko. A
decision had to be made concerning the money. This amount of
money would certainly take a large sum out of funds. The funds
were, among other things, to be used to attend conventions.
However, remembering the Key Club motto "Caring and Shar-
ing, Our Way of Life," it was soon decided that the money
should be given. "We help people in need of services, we do
favors for people who may not be able to repay us," said sopho-
more member Colette Prentice.
In the spring, Key Club goes to conventions, the Springfield
convention for members in Illinois and the Eastern Conventions.
"You meet a lot of people. You learn about other clubs, and if
you need help with anything they can give you the help you
u l '
ra r, .,

need," explained Haraszko.
Haraszko also said that conventions help members get new
ideas for projects and are fun to attend.
The Galesburg club is part of the great number of caring and
responsive individuals. Key Club is closely affiliated with the
Kiwanis Club. "We have sold directories for school and raked
leaves for Kiwanis Club," said sophomore leanmarie Peterka.
Key Club has also visited nursing homes and had bake sales.
Many Key Club members became Red Cross volunteers as well.
But some members of Key Club did not think that they did
enough. One member said, "We don't do enough stuff. I don't
think that we make that big of an impression on the

Dancing in the dry-ice smoke, comparing costumes, and
screaming through the horror movie, students enjoyed the
National Honor Society Halloween party. NHS treasurer, senior
David McDonald and his father David McDonald, Sr., were the
Dj's for the dance. Admission to the party was 51.00 for students
who were in costume and 52.00 for those who were not. This
provided a good incentive to show a little creativity and dress up.
When they got tired of dancing, students could wander down to
Lecture Room B for a horror film. Commented senior NHS
member Laura Rosene, "It wasn't exactly a classic movie. We
wanted something scary for Halloween, but this turned out more
funny than scary. It wasn't that bad, though. People were
screaming and jumping at some parts."
One requirement for continued membership in NHS was
involvement in a service project. Those who did not help with
the Halloween Dance took part in the December Toy Drive. For
three days, NHS members peopled the front hall, collecting
board games, miniature trucks, stuffed animals and any number
of other toys. The favorite toy of passers-by was senior Brenda

At the end of the week, NHS president joy Ripperger loaded
the three packing boxes of toys into her van and transported
them to the local Salvation Army for distribution to families for
Christmas. Senior vice-president Deidre Ponzer said, "I organ-
ized the toy drive because I was gone during the Halloween
Dance. I actually had fun because I got to play with all those toys
until Friday. We were almost sorry to see them go!"
New members were inducted on March 20. Harley Knosher,
Knox College athletic director, was the induction speaker.
Knosher's message to the members was that determination is
necessary to meet goals. After the ceremony, there was a recep-
tion in the cafeteria.
The final event of the year was the annual banquet for
members and their parents. Social studies teacher Hal Devore
was the speaker and Norma Cunningham of the Register-Mail
presented pewter plates to the top ten students in the senior

along with seniors Edie Rutsaert and Rachel Sotelo, worked at

Office Occupations is a class designed for the business

On April 6 at 5 a.m., five GHS students and their advisor Benita
Moore left for a fun filled week in our nation's capital.
They took part in an intense study of our nation's government.
Over 1,200 students attend Project Close-Up each week. They
were broken into six groups with three or four different states in
each group. The GHS students were in a group with students
from Alaska, Arizona, and the Iowa-Illinois Quad Cities.
Through Project Close Up students get to see and learn things
that most would not get to on a regular trip to Washington, D.C.
The group attended seminars on subjects ranging from Sourth
Africa to gun control to the media. Seminars were led by profes-
sionals on the topic. After a brief talk on their topic, they were
open for questions. Sophomore Rachael Thurman said, "lt was
an enjoyable learning experience. We got to listen to other peo-
ple's points of view while expressing our own ideas about
Front Row: Rachael Thurman, Rick Flacco, Natalie Kessler. Back Row: Eric Strack, Staci

During the week, the students studied and discussed state
politics, as well as national and international politics. They also
met with Senators and Congressmen. Congressman Lane Evans
sat down with GHS students for a question-answer session about
his job and his position on current issues.
Their week in Washington, D.C., was not all work, though.
Every evening there was time to meet and converse with new
friends. One night they went to a dinner theater and saw the
Broadway musical "Guys and Dolls". Another day they spent on
Capitol Hill, able to roam about and visit the Supreme Court,
House and Senate chambers, and different committee hearings.
On the last day they had free time and were allowed to go
anywhere. junior Eric Strack commented, "It was a lot of fun,
and they made learning fun. I thought the instructors did their
number one task very efficiently, that is to show us our National
Government, close up."

Although academics didn't capture quite the enthusiasm that
athletics did, Galesburg High School has always maintained a
fine tradition of scholastic achievement in extra-curricular con-
tests. Throughout the area, a myriad of competitions were
offered which provided students with an escape from the daily
routine. Taking place at various locations across the state, these
contests, ran the gamut from math tests to fast-paced tete-a-tete
quiz bowls. If one had an area of expertise, or just an acumen for
facts, then there was contest for him.
The most popular math contest with GHS students was the
ICTM illlinois Council of Teachers of Mathematicsl regional. The
site alternated between Blackhawk College and Augustana Col-
lege, but attracted the same five teams lGalesburg, Moline,
Macomb, United Township, and LaSalle Peruj and very intense
competition at either place.
Students could elect to compete in one of more of eight areas
of competition. Written tests were given in Algebra l, geometry,
Algebra ll, and pre-calculus. Other events were two-person
team ifr.-soph 84 jr.-sr.i, eight-person team ffr.-soph. 84 jr.-sr.l,
calculator team, and for those who possessed eloquence as well
as knowledge, the two oral topics. With substantial changes in
Math Club policy, GHS looks to usurp Moline in the future.
The junior Engineering Technical Society sponsored a nation-
wide competition called TEAMS lTests of Engineering Aptitude,
Mathematics and Sciencel. At each of three levels, district at Carl
Sandburg College, regional at Bradley University, and State at
University of Illinois, it offered tests in six areas: math lpre-
calculusl, chemistry, physics, English, biology iadvancedl, and
engineering graphics, and the optional computer fundamentals
at the state level. Tests were forty minutes long and forty to one
hundred questions in length. The top three individuals in each
category received medals, and the top two advanced to the next
level. Winning teams also advanced.
Probably the most enjoyable contest for most was Scholastic
Bowl. A Scholastic Bowl match involved head-to-head competi-
tion between opposing teams in a spectrum of scholastic areas
including history, math, literature, science, fine arts, geography
and sports. The five-member teams were read single-answer toss

up questions, one at a time. The first person hitting the buzzer in
front of him had an opportunity to answer the question. At an
incorrect answer, the question is given tothe other team. When
a team correctly answered a question, it received a multiple-
answer bonus question. Parts answered incorrectly were offered
to the other team. This toss-up bonus sequence continued until
the questions or the time limits were exhausted.
Galesburg participated in two tournaments, one at Wenona
and one at Quincy. Both tournaments allowed teams several
matches regardless of performance.
The Scholastic Bowl members were quite industrious in their
preparation for tournaments. They started early in September,
earlier than most other teams, and practiced every Tuesday for
one to one-and-a-half hours. Senior team captain Ed Peterka
commented, "I like to compete with other students. It's a good
experience to see how you compare academically with others."
As for the day's activities, "You get to socialize and play tennis
when not competing," he IPeterkaI recalled.
Sophomore leanmarie Peterka commented that "The compe-
tition was fun, and in it you found out how much you could
contribute." Concerning practices and matches, she noted that
'llf you pay close attention, then you learn much which you can
apply in other matches." Less academically speaking, "The pizza
party was fun."
Senior Bryan Hagerla found that Scholastic Bowl "is a team
sport, just like basketball." He enjoyed the trips, saying, "You get
to talk to the team members, maybe to discuss the matches. lt's a
chance to be friendly and socialize."
Senior Robby Villegas described the competition as "a tense
but thoroughly exciting experience. You rarely know how diffi-
cult the competition will be until the match is underway. There is
an indescribable thrill at being able to answer a question." Ville-
gas added, "And when the team wins, it leaves you with great
pride, in your team and in yourself." Also, "I thrive on competi-
tion with others, both when competing and when watching. I

The curtain closes and the lights fade on yet another exciting
"Stage Call" production. The night is still in its infancy and there
are forty restless cast and crew members asking, "What are we
gonna do now?" There is an obvious answer to this question.
These people are going to party.
But there is a problem that goes along with that easy answer.
Where are they going to go? After some rather hasty decison
making, the cast on opening night generally agrees on Godfath-
er's. The mob of make-up caked actors and sweaty techies burst
out the stage doors and pile into their cars, ready to break the
land-speed record from GHS to Godfather's. When this rather
motley crew arrives at their destination the fun starts for the cast
and crew, and the headaches start for the management. The
customers don't seem to care for it much either. "On a good
night we can drive them all out," said sophomore Mike

The last cast party of the year was held at Collette Harazko's

junior Dana Collis. But although members may come and go, the
traditional Stage Call parties will remain.

Galesburg's participation in the program, the vast majority of

f Assuming his role as either a legislator, lawyer, lobbyist, press
member, or page, each student received a "hands-on" demon-
stration of how state government operates.

to introduce the students to governmental structure and parlia-
mentary procedure under the guidance of advisors Glenn Busse,
Tim johnson, and Sheryl Hinman.
With a fair amount of practice behind them, students were
able to receive the full benefit and enjoyment from their Spring-
field experience. In Springfield, the actual capitol building was
put to use by almost nine hundred students from throughout the
state. Said senior legislator Matt Crow, "lt's a good program, and
of the three years I've been in it, I had the most fun this year.
However, the disorganization surrounding the parliamentary
procedure meetings made it very difficult for anyone who had
not participated as a legislator before. But the most exciting part
was having two elected officials from our delegation, something
we missed out on last year."
Overall, the Youth and Government programs this year
offered a unique experience in state government along with
loads of fun.

The Fall of 1985 brought the most popular sport in the world
to GHS. ln the early weeks of August dozens of high school
athletes began conditioning and practicing basic soccer skills.
These long hours of conditioning and practicing paid off two
and a half months later as they ended their season with a three
goal loss to the highest ranked regional team, Peoria Bergan.
This close match, along with victories against three other vete-
ran teams in regular season play, showed the tremendous
overall improvement that had taken place.
The team's hard work was not the only reason for the suc-
cess ofthe first year soccer program. Extra amounts of gui-
dance came from coach Tim Mackey and assistant coach
Mark Lischwe. Captains senior Chip Borden, junior Mark Junk,
and junior Jack Fuller added strong team enthusiasm. Great
student body and community support also helped in making
the program a success. Senior Flonda Copher, the single
female team member, described the soccer program as an
"overall positive experience" and added she was "very privi-
leged to be a part of the team."
Although the season was considered a success, the team's
first season record was 3 for 11. Plans for the 1986 team
include a considerable record improvement. The second sea-
son for soccer here will most probably include the addition of
a junior varsity and freshman team. Said 1985 forward Chip
Borden, "Within a few years soccer here will be very competi-
tive." One senior player went as far as to say soccer at GHS
would someday be as popular as it is worldwide.

he Streaks opened the season with a 19-12 victory
over Sterling. They then went on the road to East Peo-
ria and lost 27-20 in soaring temperatures. "It was 105
degrees on the field, 115 in uniform," said senior Den-
nis Stieren. "They stopped the game about six times to
give us water breaks and when we were on the sideline we put
towels that had been soaked in ice water around our necks."
They returned home to meet and beat Belleville East, 12-7.
Senior Jon Helm said, "Belleville was a key game because after
losing to East Peoria we could have gone on not to win another
game." The following week, Galesburg went to Quincy.
ln their first three games, Quincy had not allowed an opponent
to score. However, the Streaks blew the Blue Devils out of the
water. Senior quarterback Jami Isaacson passed for the eighth
highest total yardage in Illinois history. Senior split-end Chris
Kleine received for the second highest total yardage in the state.
The game's final score was 27-7.
Galesburg's homecoming game featured the Streaks battling
the Maroons. The previous week, Moline had stunned everyone
by beating East Moline, 14-13. Before the game Kleine said,
"Because Moline is coming off their big win, they have the confi-
dence they can beat anybody in the Western Big Six." Moline's
confidence was misplaced as they fell to Galesburg, 37-22.
After Galesburg's consecutive losses to East Moline and Rock
Island Alleman, some of the Streaks tried to motivate the team by
getting unusual haircuts. Those involved in the scheme were
Kleine, Helm, Steve Allert, Tom Kennedy, and Hank Sprinkle, all
seniors. Said Sprinkle, "When we got beat by East Moline and
Alleman, everyone was down. You could feel it at practice. So a
few of us decided to lift the team back up so they would want to
win again. It all started with Kleine. Then we came back with the
biggest win of the season."
The final of the Rock Island game made it all worthwhile for the
bald Streaks. Playing after torrential rains which made the field a
mudbath, the Streaks, decked out in black and gold warpaint, beat
the Ftock Island Rocks, 12-6, in overtime. In the overtime action
senior Mike Trione scored on the Streaks' third attempt. Bock
island had the ball after the Streaks failed to convert on a two
point attempt. Junior Dan Clevidence intercepted the ball on Rock
island 's first play to give Galesburg the victory.
The Streaks ended the season and play-off chances by losing
to the Limestone Rockets, 21-13. "We were a little pressured
because of the play-offs,", commented Isaacson. Senior defen
sive end Doug Cox said, "We played well defensively but we just
couldn't generate any offense. This has been our problem for the
last four weeks."
Despite the disappointing end of the season, numerous players
received individual honors. Unofficially in Western Big Six play
Isaacson was first in passing yardage with 856 yards, Kleine was
first in receiving yardage with 311 yards, and senior John Mixon
was second in rushing with 510 yards. Sprinkle was named Most
Valuable Defensive Player in the WB6 and team MVP. Sprinkle
Kleine, Mixon, and senior Shawn Blackwell were named to the
All-Conference team. The strong offensive line of the Streaks did
not allow a sack until the Moline game. Kleine, Helm, Stieren, and
senior Steve Hawkins received academicfathletic achievement
awards at the Galesburg football banquet. Also at the banquet,
Hawkins was named best practice player and Mixon was named
"lt was an enjoyable season. There were many personal and
team records," said Isaacson. "lf someone had told us that we
would be 5-4 at the end of the season, l don't think l would have
believed them. The positive thing was that we were 4-O at home
...but 1-4 on the road isn't Galesburg tradition."
The Galesburg players make an
important defensive play against their
Homecoming rival, Moline.
Senior quarterback Jami Isaacson ignored the
August heat at a pre-season practice and

A: It seems that you can do the best you can at some

Q: Is football your favorite sport?
A: I don't know. Football has the best team unity, and when you win it's the best feeling of
any sport l've played. I was so happy to be a captain. I thought that I had a good attitude
and I wanted to be a leader for the other guys. Football is different from other sports. I
guess it really is my favorite. The team becomes a family. You pull for your friends and
they pull for you, and finally it all comes together.

The Silver Streaks freshman football team finished the year
with an outstanding record of 8-1. "I thought it fthe seasoni was
pretty good overall," said Jeremy Kleine.
Alleman, East Moline, and Peoria Richwoods were the froshs'
first three victims, and all were shutouts at home.
Even though Burlington Apollo was the first team to score on
the Streaks, Gene Fisher's squad still pulled out a victory.

linebacker Bill Fields said, "What hurt us in the Geneseo game
The frosh won their final three games of the year, including a
forfeit by Peoria Manual in the last game.
Quarterback Tom Hawkins said, "What really stuck out in our
minds was that we lost, so we had to win again. Limestone was
the one game that got us back on track."
Fields said, "We had good sportsmanship and got along with
each other real well."
Said Hawkins, "We had a good season mainly because of our
coaching staff. Coach Fisher said at the beginning of the year that
we could stick together.
"I think, not to be bragging, our team has the Western Big Six
quality to win. If we stay together, we will have state potential."
"We had at least a 7-2 season going in," said punter-flanker
Guy Goodman of the sophomore football team. Despite such high
hopes, the Ponies finished the season with a dismal 3-5-1 record.
John Willy's Ponies started the season off on a good note by
shutting out Sterling, 21 -O. They then went to East Peoria, where it
was over 100 degrees. Tailback Corny Stanley, commenting on
the heat, said, "lt was blazing." Even with the high temperatures,
the Sophs annihilated East Peoria, 54-0.
The Sophs went on to lose to Peoria Richwoods, beat Quincy,
lose to Moline, and lose to East Moline, where Goodman said the
team "had so many opportunities to win, but there were too many
In the final three games of the year, the team tied Fiock Island
Alleman because of a missed extra point attempt by Galesburg,
lost to Rock Island, and lost to Limestone.
Goodman called the Rock Island game "a mudpit" and said,
"We had a chance to win. The weather is no excuse because
Rock Island handled it."
Defensive end-tight end-PAT Kicker Dave Guenther said, "We
started the season well, but there was a really big let down after
about the third game."
Fullback-cornerback Kelly Claeys said, "I don't think we did as
well as we should have. We have to learn to work at practice, to
work as a group, not as individuals."
"We have all the potential to be a good team." Guenther said. "I
look forward to playing for Coach Bolinder next year." He can
really turn us around."
"Next year will be a rebuilding year for the quarterback position.

Prioritizing is the way to begin and that is how the Lady Streaks
began their season. During the pre-season two-a-days the
Streaks set their goals: a winning season, first in conference, qual-
ifying for sectionals, beating Quincy, and having fun. Although the
conference and sectional goals slipped from their grasp as a
result of losses at the hands of Quincy, the Streaks compiled a
15-8 record, having gone 5-0 before the first loss, and enjoyed
Despite some key losses, the season had one high followed by
another. The season schedule was expanded and included a
home game against lowa's number-one-ranked North Scott. The
Thursday game was preceded on Wednesday by a pizza patty at
Happy Joe's and the movie "Pee Wee's Big Adventure". Imitations
of Pee Wee by Jenni Dagen and Amy Daves stayed with the team
for the entire season. Although Galesburg took a loss, this was
almost overshadowed by the tremendous amount of fan support.
The pep band played and the football team cheered as the
Streaks took to the floor to the tune of "I Get Excited", sporting

had ended Galesburg's 5-0 winning streak. Senior defensive
player Amy Daves said, "That was definitely the high point of the
season, beating the team that finished fourth at state!"
The Quincy Invitational provided the players with a new expe-
rience. Having been scheduled for a 9:00 A.lVl. first game to start a
twelve hour day, the Streaks traveled to Quincy and spent the
night in a Holidome to insure a good night's rest. This goal was
reached only after the pool closed and the late show "Halloween"
Another addition to the Galesburg schedule was the post sea-
son game against the varsity football team with the winners buy-
ing dinner. The girls emerged victorious f3-1l, but the guys got in
some shots of their own including Tom Kennedy's stuff block into
Becky Roberts' face and some spikes that the front row had to
dodge. Attendance at the game was about two-thirds that of regu-
lar season. Following the game, the opponents went to Happy
Joe's and celebrated, combining three tables, 330.00 worth of
pizza, and multiple pitchers of pop.
The season was filled with happiness but also frustrations. The
Streaks seemed always to be just inches from their goals but
never quite able to reach them.

When that happens l choose to ignore it because we both have different abilities.
Q. Does your volleyball activity ever interfere with your homework or your friends.
A. Yesg it takes a lot of time with practice and games, so l miss out on some things.

fter a losing season, the most often-asked question
is-why? Why did the Ponies win only four of their
fourteen matches? A variety of explanations were
offered. Coach Bill Sargeant pointed out, "We started
off with a 6-2 offense which is a difficult offense for a young team
to run." Although difficulties with this offensive pattern might have
cost the team some matches, Sargeant believed that learning the
6-2 was ultimately beneficial. At the end of the season, he said,
the team was executing the pattern effectively enough that they
could be expected to rely on it as a varsity team.
Cooperation is essential to playing good volleyball. Several
Ponies felt that their team lacked the positive attitude to achieve
this. Most team members felt that improvements were made dur-
ing the course of the season. However, setter Tanya Davidson
said, "We didn't improve as much as we should have." Davidson
explained that the team's bad morale prevented them from work-
ing up to their potential.
There were no junior high volleyball teams when the Ponies
were in junior high school. This lack of experience left them weak
in many skill areas, particularly passing to the setter. Unpolished
skills put the Ponies at a disadvantage and many times the team
was simply out-classed by the opponents.
Despite the problems that plagued their season, there were
high points for the Ponies. One of their best efforts was winning a
game against the North Scott sophomores. The North Scott var-
sity team is ranked number one in Iowa. Team members agreed

that North Scott was the toughest team they faced. Hitter Crissy
Cole said, "Everybody was on that night."
The Ponies did have a losing season, but Coach Sargeant was
satisfied with his team. "As freshmen, totally inexperienced, they
won one match and three games total. This year, virtually the
same team won four matches and thirteen games, and three of
the matches were decided by two points. l think that says a lot."
The season was a new experience for the freshman team.
Working on a team, representing their school, and learning new
skills were the benefits. Coming from Churchill and Lombard, the
freshman volleyball players had never played in a league or
represented their school before. Although inexperienced, they
united under Coach Mary Beth Clark to beat Peoria Manual,
Geneseo, and Macomb.
For front center Shannon Johnson, the highlight of the season
was winning the games they did. "Knowing we could beat some-
one else was a really great feeling." The highlight of hitter Alicia
Dagen's season was the first game because, simply stated, "We

anymore. Muscles weren't quite as sore, new skills had been
learned, and now they had experience. Server Mindy Ftagon said,
"We'll be great next year! It just took this year to get used to being
on a team."

In Search of the Perfect Match
ith the second coach in two years, the Lady Tennis
Streaks had to again adjust to a new practice rou-
tine to begin the 1985-86 season. About a month
before school started, the returning members of
the girls' tennis team wondered whether or not
there would even be a tennis team. Mrs. Sandy Banks, an ex-coach
of the Knox College girls' tennis team came through to fill the gap in
the coaching staff left by Mr. Gary Wagher.
The Lady Tennis Streaks did not have their best season on the
courts, but there was a definite unity among the team members. As
senior Nancy Fross, team captain, said, "No matter how bad we did
on the courts, we could get together and have a good time after-
wards. We did care about our game, but we knew all we could do
was try harder next time."
With a record of 3-7, the Lady Streaks had to look for things to be
cheerful about. The number one player forthe entire season was
junior Susie Goethals with an individual record of 5-1 0. She felt that
this season was good practice for her to prepare for what she will
face in the future.
The Lady Streaks ran into definite problems

during the last portion of the season. Between heavy rains and high
winds it was nearly impossible to practice. This contributed to the
fact that in the last four matches the Streaks went down to their
opponents. The closest they came to winning was a 4-5 loss to
There was a varsity and junior varsity team, but for the most part it
was like one big team. The varsity team was composed of the top
six players, and the junior varsity team encompassed the rest of the
team. The practices were held together, with the varsity team prac-
ticing extra on occasion.
At the end ofthe season junior Susie Goethals and seniors Lori
Pickrel and Tricia Yeager advanced to Sectionals but failed to
make it any further. Some of the underclassmen looked back at the
season and were hopeful about next year. Sophomore Betsy Banks
said, "First we had to get adjusted to a different coach, but next
year we have plans to begin practicing earlier and trying to encour-
age more underclassmen to join the team." The season closed with
Mrs. Banks giving a rose to all the seniors on the team and a pizza
party at Happy Joe's.

he varsity girls' golf team compiled
a 12-1 overall dual record. There
was definite "togetherness" atti-
tude. Coach John Chapman had
ideas of the team early in the sea-
son."We should be more experienced. We have more depth than
in the past, and some of the younger players should be able to fill
in if the top players aren't playing well."
The girls went on to win their own Galesburg Invitational over
last year's winner Geneseo. Junior Cindi Watson took medalist
honors. Junior Melissa Nixon and sophomore Natalie Kessler
took third and fourth places, respectively.
Coach Chapman also said he felt the girls were the favorite for
the Western Big Six competition. They weren't ready for letdowns
just yet. They were victorious. Watson once again earned medal-
ist honors. They advanced to regionals and defeated last year's
winner, Springfield. They won the sectional tournament held at
Bunker Links and advanced to the IHSA State Finals with the
lowest regional and sectional scores. Watson finished in a tie for
first at both, losing the regional playoff but winning the sectional
The time for letdowns had come. At State extreme casual water
caused first day cancellations. The girls lost some of their enthu-
siasm, playing the second day in ubiquitous casual water and
drizzling rain. They finished a disappointing sixth, only five
strokes out of the medals, but three places higher than last year.
Of the 99 girls and 12 teams, Cindi Watson finished ninth overall.
All but two girls are returning next year, and like they say, you
learn from your mistakes.

The Lady Swimming Streaks came to a close once
more with a 4-5 record. Coach Dickinson said, "I was
really happy with the way they performed this year.
They were willing to try new events when injuries or
illness created openings. They worked as a team and all improved
their strokes and times."
The team worked together very well. Although they lost some
good seniors, they brought in some tough freshmen like Jenny
Wood who swam the breaststroke and Tammy Grohs who swam
freestyle. Sophomore Becky Beversdorf said, "This year we had a
lot of new people who really helped the team. Although some may
have been inexperienced they stayed with it and improved. Every-
one dropped their times and helped the team as a whole." As they
worked together the season went fast. There may have been bet-
ter seasons, but the times that dropped made up for the record,
according to many team members.
Of course, the season had bad points, too. The season was full
of illnesses and injuries. At the end the team was hurt the most.
There were at least three swimmers out for different reasons:
Kellie Miller was out due to bronchitis, Missy Hillier was out
because of an injured shoulder, and Marla Miller was out with an
injured toe. Because of this, other swimmers had to fill in the

empty spaces which were butterfly 500 and 500 freestyle. Carrie
Guenther, who had to fill in one of the spots, said, "It was hard, but
after l learned the butterfly, I was glad to help the team out."
For those who had to fill in the empty spaces it was difficult
since it wasn't necessarily their stroke. Also some felt the work-
outs didn't work them hard enough to build endurance.
Sophomore Angel Pederson said, "I had a lot to learn since it
was my first year swimming and sometimes there was the urge to
quit. But, l'm glad I didn't. I got to know everyone on the team and

The two divers, junior Crystal Hawkinson and sophomore Pam
Lambrecht, contributed to the point total. Sometimes it saved the
team score. In the meet against Macomb, Galesburg would not
have won without their divers.
Captain Kellie Miller said, "We did really well all season, a lot of
times were dropped and everyone tried really hard."

Frustrated would probably be the best word to describe the
varsity boys basketball team who finished the year with a record
of 5-19 the most losses and the worst percentage in GHS history.
The frustration started when the Streaks lost all three games
they played in the Thanksgiving Tournament. They went on to
lose to East Moline 81-65 and to Rock Island Alleman 72-61.
Chris Mullin paced Galesburg in the next game with 22 points
as the varsity broke their five-game losing skid by beating the
Flock Falls Rockets 72-62. Even though the Streaks were outre-
bounded 139-37l they hit the boards hard with Dan Clevidence
grabbing twelve rebounds Mark Junk eight and Andy Osborne
and Mick Swanson six apiece.
The Streaks entered the Normal Classic Invitational with a 1-6
record after losing to Moline 57-51.
At the tourney Galesburg chalked up their second victory as
eliminated from competition in the following round when they lost
to Stephen Decatur.
Everybody wanted to win said Flay Mason who was one of
the two sophomores to play forthe varsity during the year com-
menting on the Bloomington Central Catholic game. We played
together well. Junk wasnt the only one who did something he

Sennett s squad won the Limestone game 69-51 with a 1-3-1
trap and Mark Junk s 22 points. Then problems arose with Sen-
netts goal. Galesburg was demolished in the next game as
Quincy scored over 100 points. The Streaks lost the last game of
the regular season the following day by losing to the Geneseo
Maple Leafs 68-66.
That was stupid when he said we couldnt beat Quincy. said
Chris Mullin 86 referring to Sennett s goal of the Streaks win-
ning three out of their final four games. We lost before we even
got on the bus to go to Quincy. Just knowing that the coach
knows you can t win just takes the team apart he said.
The varsity then lost to Canton in the opening round of the
Class AA regional 74-66. What you saw on the floor tonight was
returning as the Silver Streaks head coach in 1987.
The year was frustrating for the players for the coaches and
for the fans. I don t think we played as well as we could have. It
was a long hard season for everybody. Galesburg is supposed to
be a basketball town and when you have a 5-19 team it s frustrat-
ing said Mullin.
One bright spot for the team was Junk who finished second in
average points per game in the WB6 with 19.7 and got an all-state
honorable mention by the AP.
Another change besides the absence of Sennett next year is
the disbanding of the Galesburg Turkey Tournament. The Streaks

Losing one teammate to the varsity for the whole year and
another for the second half of the season could be devastating to
a team but the sophomore boys basketball team made the most
of the situation and finished their campaign with a respectable
record of 13-9
Coach Dave Peck commented It fthe teamj was a bunch of
young men who battled even though they lost two of their team
mates to the varsity
Asked if losing Ray Mason for the whole season and Guy
Goodman for the second half of the season had an effect on the
team Joe Townsell replied I think it did on everyone. We
decided that that wasnt going to bother us. We played some
tough teams and we beat them
Toby Davis said When Guy left there was a rumor going
around that we couldn t play. We got together and said we could
prove we could play... Guy was always the star. In a clutch situa
tion it was give it to Guy

In the Silvis Optimis Tournament the Ponies beat Quincy by
two points Q70-68j in the opening round. They then lost to Rock
Island by two points on a questionable call by a referee and lost
to Moline for the second time during the season.
After posting a 4-2 record in their next six games, the Ponies
faced Bock Island in overtime and lost for the third time in three
matches between the two teams. "We were up by twenty at the
half. We weren't missing any shots," said Mellican. "We played to
the best of our ability."
The Ponies then went on another spurt and went 3-1 in their
next four games before facing Moline and losing forthe third time.
In this meeting, the Ponies were defeated 66-48. Flounding out
the season, the sophs beat Limestone, lost to Quincy, and beat
Geneseo in a thriller in which the Ponies won by one point on a
last second shot by Mike Flickords. "We knew it would be tough,"
said Townsell, who averaged 12.8 points per game. "We ended
up being on top by a great last second shot by Mike Flickordsf'
Toby Davis made the pass to Ftickords. "I was scared, I thought
l'd lose the game with three men trapping me," Davis said. "lt was
a good game to end the season with."
We never beat Moline or Bock Island That really bothered
me said Mellican That disappointed me because that is six
losses right there Our goal was to go undefeated said Town
sell Our next goal was be at least 500 That happened and
we re proud of that
The freshman boys basketball team finished the year with a

Mike Wilson sitting down in the first quarter and Dean Axcell
before the end of the first half. "Jerry Townsell came in and did a
pretty good job, though," he said.
The Streaks then beat Limestone by one point on a last second
shot by Aten. The freshmen split their last four games by losing to
Rock Island, beating Alleman, losing to East Moline, and beating
Moline in the season finale.
"We just played terrible," said Axcell of the second game
against Ftock Island. "We had a five point lead with two minutes
left. Then we just started throwing the ball away and we lost by
"Some games we wanted to play, some we didn't. Overall we're
a decent team." Axcell said.
"l think I learned to play with the team instead of just a one-on-
one player. Controlling my temper, I could have done better," said
Eric Shelton. "I thought Mr. Mason taught us a lot of stuff. We
learned how to play as a unit.

any members of the girl's varsity basketball team
spent a great deal of time preparing for the season
last summer by attending camps, playing on
summer league teams, lifting weights, attending
open gyms and doing "Daily Dozens" fa daily practice routine set
up by Coach Masseyl. The girls found out, though, that hard work
does not necessarily guarantee a successful win-loss record,
after suffering through 17 losses and only 8 wins. Junior Brenda
Stewart commented, "l feel we had a good season. We were in
almost every game up until the end. We lost a lot of games that
could have gone either way."
The Lady Streaks first win did not come until the Manual Tour-
nament where they defeated Champaign Centennial 56-51. They
were later eliminated from the tournament by Lincoln, but senior
Lisa Williams was named to the all-tournament team. The girls
recorded their first WB6 conference wins in two years by beating
Rock Island Alleman, and Quincy. The highlight of the season was
unquestionably the 58-48 win at home over Quincy. Senior Laura
Tiehen said, "My best memory was of our win over Quincy, when
we finally had everyone healthy and we were rewarded at the end
of the season which was not as successful as we had hoped."
The Lady Streaks earned a second place finish in their own invita-
tional tournament in February by defeating Jacksonville, 56-35.
Senior Madilyn Jackson finished off her career at GHS by compil-
ing 105 career steals-a new record.
Coach Evan Massey said, "The girls were a pleasure to work
with. They set high goals for the season and worked conscien-
tiously in the off-season. Despite the frustration of injuries and
losses, they kept working and at the end of the season they were
playing some good basketball."

Q. How long have you been playing basketball?
A. l've been playing for about six years. My brothers
taught me how to play. I have five older brothers and
they all played here. I really got serious about playing
during my sophomore year when I played on the varsity.
It influenced me to play more and to work harder.
Q. What was your personal high point of the
A. Definitely it was when I scored thirty-two points
against Canton. The next day I found out that the
school record is only thirty-three. I was just one
point away. I knew I had made a lot of points, but I
didn't know it was that many.

Coach John Allison explains the
strategy for the next defensive
play during a time out,
The freshman girls basketball team started their season out
slowly-losing four games in a row. However, they came back for
a strong finish by winning their last five games of the season to
end with a final record of eleven wins and six losses. Coach Gary
O'Malley said, "Through hard work and preparation, we were
able to be competitive in the conference-that's something we
haven't been able to do before. The girls were rewarded for their
efforts by being able to beat teams that had beaten them earlier in
the season." Julie Box commented, "lt was nice to be a part of a
winning team and to meet a lot of new people. What a year!"
With a final record of five wins and thirteen losses, the sopho-
more girls basketball team did not win as many games as they
would have liked. They did, however, win more games than the
previous year and improved their skills. "I think we showed peo-
ple that we weren't as bad as they thought we were. lt was a fun
season, though, and I thought Mr. Allison was a good coach,"
said Karla Shive. One of the positive aspects of the season was a
conference win at home over Quincy after having lost to them at
Quincy. Coach John Allison said, "The high point for us was the
effort that the girls put forth all year even through some tough,
close losses. The players improved as the year went on and some
are ready to step into varsity competition."

Winning was something quite common for the grapplers.
Though the team felt the effects of injury, they had an outstanding
record of 13-6-2. John Chapman led the way with a 42-2 record
followed by Shawn Blackwell Q25-Sl and Jack Fuller Q31-8l.
The varsity wrestled at four tournaments. They placed third at
Sterling and fifth at Geneseo. They did not place high due to
forfeiting weights and injuries.
The Streaks did very well at Regional tournaments this year. Six
grapplers advanced to sectionals-John Chapman, Jack Fuller
Shawn Blackwell, Jerry Crittenden, Roger Clark, and Jason
Fuller, who said after he won at Regionals, "I like wrestling
because it's you and him, and you're all alone. It's all up to you.
You can't blame anybody but yourself if you lose, or you can take
pride in the fact that you won on your own.
Of the six, only John Chapman and Shawn Blackwell made it
through the long struggle to advance to State. At State, Chapman
finished fifth in his weight class and Blackwell did not place.

Q. What will you remember most about wrestling?
A. l'Il remember being yelled at to run and running extra. I won
sectionals my junior year after I had lost to the same person twice
tt its W.
as 1 if . two weeks earlier.
Q. Did you ever have any problems getting to your weight?
A. My sophomore year especially. lt really hurt my grade point
average. I cut down from 114 to 98. I had to starve for four days I
could have a third of a cup of water and a vitamin. I cut from 126
to 112 my junior year. That wasn't as hard though. Then I went
from 130 down to 119. It was a little easier to do since I'd done it

back. The referee is down for the count, and he slaps
the mat. The crowd cheers as senior Dan Rincon gets
another pin to lead the junior varsity wrestling team to
another win. The JV had an outstanding record of 6-1 this year.
The JV was a mixture of all grade levels. lt included freshmen to
seniors, depending upon their capability. As their record shows,
they had just the right mixture.
The wrestlers put in a hard day's work. They had practice after
school until 5:30 or 6:00 p.m. The team drilled daily to master the
moves that they had learned. Conditioning was also a major por-
tion ofthe practice. They jumped rope, ran a few miles, wrestled
five minute periods, and lifted weights. Somtimes this seemed to
be a great deal of work to win a six minute match. Considering all
this conditioning and training, when asked why he wrestled,
senior Dan Rincon said, "Winning that match, no matter how
much work there is to accomplish it, is something that l can take
great pride in."
The freshman and sophomore wrestlers had a good season

your opponent when the referee raised your hand at the end of a
"lt's a fun experience, your first year of wrestling, deciding what
weight to wrestle at and challenging friends for spots on the
team," recalled junior wrestler Eric Strack.
The training was considered difficult by many first year
wrestlers because a great deal of effort was required. Most
agreed that the first week of practice was the worst as they tried
to get into the schedule of practicing. After that they were merely
asked to, as head coach John Chapman said, "Give it 11O0fo."
The freshmen and sophomore coaches were Steve Coffman
and Gene Fisher, respectively. They worked hard with their
teams, teaching them the basics and getting them in shape. With
all their hard work, the fresh-soph team not only had a winning
season, but they also received third in the Canton Invitational.

After years of mediocrity in the swimming program the varsity
Streak swimmers had an enviable record of eight wins and three
losses in dual meet action. One of the losses was to powerful
Rock Island who went on to place eighth at State. The other two
losses were close meets that were lost in the last three events.
Although the swimmers and their coach John Willy had set the
goal of being undefeated in dual meets they were satisfied with
the results of the season. The Streaks best showing was in the
Peoria Manual Rams Relays where they placed third in a twelve
team field. lt was excellent to be able to contend for some medal-
ist placings and taking home the hardware instilled a lot more
pride in their performance said senior co-captain Greg Freistad
referring to the third place trophy.
Some notable achievements were made by the swimmers. Jun-
1- ,-- f
ior Todd Krisher improved in the distance events to contest
senior Donovan Baker for top seedings. Friestad dropped to
within 0.5 seconds of the school record in the 100 yard breast-
stroke. Senior Eric Tucker and sophomore Scott Jacobs gave
good performances in the 100 yard backstroke at the Rams
Relays to bring home third place medalist honors.
A new face contributed greatly to the diving events for the
Streaks. Sophomore Mark Probst in his first year became a close
competitor to Tucker a fourth year diver and together they could
be counted on to add points to the Streaks lead at dual meets.
Altogether it was a good year for the Streaks. Many goals were
set and reached almost every swimmer improved over the sea-
son and all played a part in the best record in years at GHS.

do a dive. You have to decide for yourself if you want to do a new dive or not
Q. What is frightening about diving?
A. Learning new dives is frightening. They say that there are people who do
certain dives and they break their ankles when they hit the water. Diving is the
third most dangerous sport.

Through the haze of a smoke-filled room, the crack of a heavy
black ball hitting the carefully positioned pin white pins
resounded throught the alley. Excited cries of, "lt's a strike!" were
heard above the general comotion. The girls' bowling team
started its season on Saturday, December 7 at the Kewanee Invi-
tational. Although the final record of the team was O-10, coach
Glenn Busse felt that the season was a good one.
"We had a greatly inexperienced group of girls. There was only
one veteran player from last year, and she quit before the season
was over. However, our scores were impoving by 20-50 pins in
each match. At times our morale was low, but we gained a lot of
valuable experience. Next year our top three players are return-
ing, so we expect a better season."
Galesburg's highest scorer was Nlarla Ftigg, a freshman with an
average score of 150. Other team members were Michelle Cal-
hoon, Nancy Welch, Tina Jacobs, Grace Snowden, Jean Griffith,

Q: Does it bother you that bowling isn't a glamour sport?
A: Kind of. People will go to basketball or volleyball games, but they
won't go to a bowling meets because they think it's boring.
Q: How do you perceive yourself as a bowler?
A: Pretty good. I would rate myself an eight on a one to ten scale. I did
well this season, and I was proud of myself, especially coming ffrom
Hawaiil to a new school.
Q: What were your goals this season?

A Pioneering Te
As the floor exercise music started at the Downers Grove North
Gymnastics Regional, there was a new team competing. For the
first time, Galesburg High School had a gymnastics team.
The ten girls on the gymnastics team practiced three to four
nights a week on the floor exercise, uneven parallel bars, vault,
and balance beam. Since the high school did not have all the
equipment and insurance necessary, the team had to practice at
Galesburg Gymnastics Club.
The Regional meet at Downers Grove was the first meet for
three of the gymnasts, so the pre-meet butterflies were a big
factor. Only two of the team members, freshman Nancy Peck and
sophomore Stephanie Wilke, went on to Sectional competition.
That was a bit disappointing to some of the team members, but for
a first year team competing against long-time teams from the
Chicago area, the performances were good.
Nancy and Stephanie both performed well at Sectionals, but
unfortunately, neither advanced to State. Nancy Peck said, "I felt
privileged that l advanced to Sectionals, but I felt my performance

could have been better if I wasn't so nervous."
lt was difficult practicing for just one meet. The gymnasts were
transported by bus to the Galesburg Gymnastics Club. "lt was
really hard practicing at GGC because they had classes there,
and we had to work around them," said freshman Denise Sim-
kins. "lt would be nice if we had a bigger place because we could
get a lot more done."
Freshman Amy Paul described her first meet by saying, "lt was
a neat but scary experience. I was really nervous. The competi-
tion was excellent and had me psyched out the minute I walked
into the gym. It was really hard going into Regionals without the
slightest idea of what was going on. lf we would have had a
chance to compete with other schools during the season, the
experience wouldn't have been so overwheIming."
Coach Pat Walls summed up the year by saying, "lt was very
exciting to be part of a pioneering team. Since this is the first
Galesburg Gymnastics Team. We did well this year, and l expect
even greater things in the future."

Q. Because this was the first year of the gymnas-
tics team at GHS, did you have any difficulties?
A. I didn't because l've had other experience in
gymnastics. I was a club member at Galesburg
Gymnastics Club for three years. I went to State
every year I was there. Once I took third in vault
and once seventh overall.
Q. Are you going to go out for the team next year?
A. l'm not sure. I really don't want to have to com-
pete all through high school. I competed with injur-
ies this season, and my ankles aren't in very good
condition. I'm getting too old forthe sport. l'm not
as dedicated as I used to be. Maybe I'Il compete
just for fun as a senior.

Even though the Galesburg High School varsity baseball team
lost six of its nine starters after last year, they hit the diamond with
vigor and produced a record of 23-9.
Head coach Gary Bruington said, "We played better than I
thought we would, I was hopeful that we would play well. We had
a lot of inexperience, and we overcame that with a lot of hard
"I thought at the beginning we would have to be the team to
'choke and poke' and hit the line drive," said pitcher Dave Bow-
man. "Coach Bruington said at the beginning of the year that to
win games, we would have to have good pitching. Our hitting
overall was pretty good, and we had the pitching to accomplish
what we wanted to do."
Bowman Q8-3, 1.6 ERAJ was a member of the injury-ridden
pitching staff. Senior Todd Horton was out a good part of the
season, and senior Hank Sprinkle, who suffered an injury to his
arm, was out for almost half of the season.
"A lot of people relied on me to carry the load, and I had to pick
up a lot of the slack tfrom Sprinkle and Hortonlf' Bowman said
Bowman received help from sophomore Kelly Healey, in addi-
tion to many other people. Healey was called up to varsity in
mid-season. He posted a 2-O record and a 3.78 ERA during his
stint with the Streaks.
GHS had many people hit over.300, including sophomore Guy
Goodman L423, 39 RBD, senior Mike Trione 0382, 16 RBIJ, Bow-
man t.375, 9 RBIJ, and sophomore Corney Stanley 0364, 23 RBD.
Senior Chris Kleine uses some

"We had several guys that hit well for us, and that certainly was as
pleasant surprise," said Bruington.
The Streaks ended the season by losing to the Moline Mar-
roons in the Galesburg regional tournament 5-4 in 11 innings.
"The team was just going all out," said Bowman. "I held them
jMolinej for four innings. I kept telling the guys 'All I need is one
run.' I guess it was one of those things that was meant to be. If you
lose, you're still a winner in my book. If you give 100 percent, you
can't do anything else," he said.
"lt was a hard pill to swallow, but we played hard and that's
whatl like to see," said Bruington.
Some highlights of the 1986 season were a 12 game winning
streak by the silver and gold, a no-hit performance from Bowman,
and Sprinkle striking out all six batters he faced in innings five
and six against the Washington Panthers.
"lt was good to have a pitching coach tEd Sennettl along with a
head coach. It gave us a chance to have individual help. Some
schools don't have that opportunity," stated Bowman.
Senior Chris Kleine was selected by fellow teammates to
receive the Chuck Bednar Award, which signifies the varsity's
most valuable player.

Q. What are your strengths as a player?
A. I suppose my strengths would be experience, hit-
ting ability, and just plain baseball savvy. l played for
four years and lettered for all of them.
Q. Has this season gone as well as you thought it
A. Personally, I am not hitting as well as I thought
I would. But in other aspects-defensive, mental,
and leadership-I haven't had any problems. A
lot of players on the team haven't had as much
experience as I have. l've been in situations
before when players come up and ask why this
happened or that happened. The main thing is to
tell them to 'relax'.

The Ponies lost four top players to the varsity, but still managed
to post a record of 19-10-1. Sophomores Corney Stanley, Guy
Goodman, Toby Davis, and Kelly Healey all moved up to play on
the varsity squad.
The Ponies wrapped up their season by losing to IVC-
Chillecothe, 11-O. IVC scored once in the first and three in the
second to lead them to victory. Galesburg had men on base In the
fourth, fifth, and sixth innings, but could not capitalize. Freshman
Lance Aten took the loss for the Streaks.
Dave Peck's squad had some big sticks on the team including
Dusty Frazier, .418 ,37 RBI in 30 games, Mark Probst, .373, 14 RBI
in 29 games, James Taylor, .357, 14 RBI in 27 games, and Rhett
Hulse, .347, 33 RBI in 26 games. During the season, the Ponies
scored 262 runs and gave up only 147 runs which is indicative of
a good pitching staff.
ln his playing time with the team, Healey posted a 5-O record
with a 2.10 ERA. Another pitcher, Scott Vanier, had an outstand-
ing season by producing a 2.16 ERA and a record of 6-2.

Q. What other experience have you had playing softball
A. I've played since I was three. I played Little League for

Q. Did you enioy playing this season even though you
were on a losing team?
A. Yes, I really did. I didn't mind losing because it fit
together so well. It wasn't a team it, was a family. Every-
body added to it. The seniors added a lot to the team.
Our five freshmen did their best. How could we ask for
anymore? The season wasn't good because we've done

The JV girls softball team was established in the spring of 1985
to give girls playing experience before the varsity level.
Even though the girls on this team suffered some major set-
backs, they did win one of the fourteen games they played. In the
middle of the season, the team faced Canton and pulled out a
16-15 win. The lack of wins during the rest of the season was
disappointing. However winning was not necessarily the most
important lesson. Commented freshman player Amy Paul, "l'd like
to win, but the experience will count more next year when l'm
trying out for the varsity team."
Scrimmages at practice sessions helped the team develop
more working knowledge of the game. This knowledge made
decisions easier in game situations. To improve hitting the girls
spent much of their time in batting practice.
Sophomore Jennifer Nelson described how many team
members felt about the season saying, "The team was for expe-
rience, and that's what l got. I also met a lot of good friends."

Nineteen eighty-six held both disappointments and surprises
for the Streaks track and field team. Before the season began, the
team lost their shot and discus coach, Russ Benjamin, when his
van was struck by a train. This was very hard on the athletes Mr.
Benjamin had coached. He had become a friend to them also.
The season started with two indoor meets in March, one at
Augustana and one at Western Illinois University. These were the
only indoor meets of the season. At that point, due to the fact that
the Streaks had been training since January 17, the team looked
pretty good. By midway through the outdoor season the team had
not been beaten in a dual meet.
At the Sterling relays, several outstanding performances were
made. The two mile relay broke a nine year school record with an
8:06. This team was made up of junior Greg Hebner, senior Keith
VanderMeulen, sophomore John Leegard, and senior Troy Bra-
mlett. At that same meet, senior Doug Cox threw one hundred
fifty-nine feet and eleven inches in the discus to place second
among tough competition. Keith VanderMeulen also won the mile
team race although Galesburg's team of three milers did not
At the conference meet the team had some of its best perfor-
mances ofthe year. The two mile relay of senior Steve Vilardo,
Hebner, Leegard, and Bramlett broke the school record again
with an outstanding time of 8:01. With one hundred meters left in
that race, three teams were right together-Moline, Rock Island,
and Galesburg. Bramlett had started his anchor leg over twenty
meters behind and made up the entire deficit in the first lap. His
outstanding split of 1:57 was not quite enough though, and
Galesburg finished third. Keith VanderMeulen won the two mile
for the second year in a row and took second in the mile to a
runner he had beaten the previous week at the Geneseo Relays.
Troy Bramlett continued his reign over the 300 low hurdles with a
win at the conference meet.
At the sectional meet there were several almosts. The two mile
relay almost made state, Doug Cox barely missed in the discus,
and Troy Bramlett was only a few tenths of a second from qualify-
ing in the 300 lows. Two athletes did qualify for the state meet,
however. The first was senior Ed Hoenig, who had done well in
the shot put all season and came up with a throw of 152 feet in the
discus which was one foot over the state qualifying distance. The
second was VanderMeulen in the two mile.
The Peoria Journal Star sponsored a meet for the track athletes
who had made the honor roll. At this meet two male GHS athletes
gave winning performances. Bramlett won the low hurdles. Van-
derMeulen was eight hundreths off the school record but won the
race. The state track meet was held at Eastern Illinois University
in Charleston. Hoenig was disappointed with his throws which
did not take him out of the preliminaries. VanderMeulen took
second in his heat and fifteen overall in the two mile.

Q. Where did the nickname "Brambo" come from?
A. I guess because I joined the Marines. Todd and Mike Shane
started it and a couple of the guys on the team picked it up.
Q. How did your time-out with sickness affect you?
A. I got pneumonia running the half-mile in the rain at the
Sterling invitational. I was out a week before Sectionals, but
when I came back I worked really hard and got back my nor-
mal performance level.
Q. What were your goals?
A. I wanted to run a 49 in the quarter, and I did. I wanted to run
a 37 or 38 inthe 300 lows, and I got a 38. Mr. Albright set a goal
for me of running the two mile relay. I ran my leg in 1:57 which
was better than all the distance runners, so he left me. We
broke the two mile relay record that had stood for about 20
years by nine seconds. I felt great about what I did accomplish,
but I'm sorry I didn't qualify for State. I was only two-tenths of a

Q. What goals did you have for the season?
A. At first I was running 3 teams and fresh-soph relays. I wanted to
run varsity and two weeks later Coach Fisher put me on a varsity
relay. l felt priviledged because it was my first year running.
Q. What was the highlight of the season? The biggest
A. The highlight was the Rock Island Invitational where l picked up
PR's in the 100m and 200m. Not making it to state was probably the
worst. I was always right behind the girls from Rocky. I hate that!
Q. What was the strangest event all season?
A. When we ran in the snow at East Moline. We were stretching
out, it started snowing. It was like a blizzard and we were still run-
ning. Our whole team did their best, though, even though other
teams were goofing off and not trying.
The girls' track team gained confidence for the remainder of their
season by winning their first outdoor meet against Canton. Beating
Moline at the Rock Island Invitational put the girls in fourth place out
of eleven teams and third place of the Western Big Six teams
Several sprinters achieved "PRS", personal records. Sophomore
sprinter Alicia Brannon described how she felt when she broke her
personal record inthe 100 meter dash at sectionals. "I felt proud that
I finally accomplished some of my goals in track." In the field events,
the team only consisted of one high jumper, six shot and discus
throwers, and two long jumpers. Junior Jane Albright, who tied the
school record for the high jump, described what her goals are for
next year. "I would like to jump five feet, seven inches next year. That
would give me a possibility for a scholarship, My dad Iboys' track
coach Jerry Albrightl wants me to start at five feet."
"I had a lot of improvement this year. I was really happy with the
year as a whole, but I felt there were a few more goals I could have
achieved," said freshman distance runner Kirsten Olson. The long
distance runners ran in rain or shine at Lake Storey for practice
which helped them gain many important points at meets.

The four seniors and four juniors on the varsity football cheer-
leading squad did not wait for fall to start practicing. The squad
started practicing two weeks after school let out. ln addition to
practicing, all of the squads participated in a fund raiser so that
the varsity could have new sweaters.
Though there was a lot of hard work involved, almost every-
thing was done jokingly and in a fun way. When asked what their
fondest memory from the year was, junior Lisa Anderson said,
"One day we treated the football players to watermelon after prac-
tice. We all were having a good time eating it, and all of a sudden
a piece flew right by me. Before I knew it, we were in the middle of
a massive melon war!" Senior Joy Ripperger said, "Parents' night
was really funny. All of the seniors and our parents were standing
out in the pouring rain, and we didn't even care. The parents were
really good about that, Plus, we came back in the second half and
killed Rock Island.
Homecoming marked another new tradition with the cheer-
leaders. This was the first year that the cheerleaders had ever
ridden with the football players in the Homecoming parade. Var-
sity members led the players in cheers as the fire truck drove
down lvlain Street. Many squad members said that they enjoyed
that quite a bit.
The football season ended on November 20th, with the annual
football banquet, but the cheerleaders continued practicing for
their performance at the first varsity basketball game on
Junior Sara Crisman concluded, "We had a lot of support for
the team. We were doing something that we really enjoyed, and
we all became close friends inthe process."
The Pony football cheerleaders stretched beyond their
expected duties as spirit leaders this year and ended the season
with many lasting memories. Sophomore Carla Causo remem-
bered one of her squad's most enjoyable efforts as the occasion
when they decorated the Pony football team's locker room with
signs and candy as a gesture of encouragement for the team's
The Ponies practiced a minimum of twice a week under the
supervision of Coach Beth Wells. Sophomore Anna Burga des
cribed these practice sessions as being filled with hard work as
well as small sessions of socializing. Throughout the season, the
Ponies worked to pep up the crowd and support the team, regard
less of whether or not it was a winning day. Sophomore Kim Wells
recalled the exhileration experienced with the victories and the
terrible frustration that accompanied the losses during the season
The Ponies completed their season with a feeling of accomp
lishment after making every effort to support the sophomore foot
ball team and promote spirit among the Galesburg crowds
Being new to the high school was an adjustment that the
freshman football cheerleaders handled well. Even though it was
their first year, they did their part to encourage school spirit at
GHS. Tryouts for the squad were held at the end of their eighth
grade year. The eight girls who were chosen were in store for a
lot of hard work and practice, but the excitement of the games
made it worthwhile.
Practice began early in the summer and continued until the end
of their season. Early morning practices were held from eight
o'clock until ten o'clock. Freshman football cheerleader Chris
lnness said, "lt took a lot of dedication to get up at that hour, let
"I felt our freshman cheerleading squad was great. We always
had a good time--even when it was rainy or freezing cold. Foot

Starting with only four members on the squad, thejunior varsity
cheerleaders picked up junior Julie Timmons and sophomore
Carla Caruso to complete their cheering section. The JV cheer-
leaders participated in many activities in the 85-86 season. At the
cheerleading clinic held at the old Bateman gym, the JV squad,
along with the other three GHS squads, taught third through
eighth graders basic cheerleading skills. These skills included
such things as jumps, cheers, chants, routines, and some elemen-
tary acrobats. Sophomore Carla Caruso said, "lt was fun to see all

looked up to us." Sometimes not even all the cheerleaders made
it to the games. "There were a lot of games when there were only
four or five of us on the court because there were so many
illnesses during the season," said Michelle Simpson.
One highlight of the JV cheerleaders' year was performing at
half-time with the varsity cheerleaders. Although they were asked
to do the routine on somewhat short notice, the girls did give a
good performance. Junior Jessica Williamson said, "Because of
the pressure from Mrs. Sennett to put the routine together in such
a short amount of time, we weren't as ready as we could have
The cheerleaders also enjoyed doing special things for the
players, such as making a cake for the girls' basketball team at
their last home game against Ftock Island.

For the first time, the varsity wrestling cheerleading squad was
not composed of volunteers from the football cheerleading
squad, but instead of four girls who were primarily dedicated to
wrestling cheerleading. As is always the case with something
new, there were difficulties and unforeseen problems to work out.
However, with the help of Coach Beth Wells and student coach
Joy Ripperger, the first year varsity wrestling cheerleading squad
had a fun and productive year. The squad had uniforms for the
first time. In past years, the cheerleaders wore their practice uni-
forms from football cheerleading or a similar uniform. There were
many differences between this squad and other cheerleading
squads. One difference was the amount of dedication shown. The
girls were not "cheered out" from the football season, wrestling
was the only sport they cheered for. The girls had a lot more time
and energy to contribute towards a successful season because
of this. Another difference was that the girls had much more free-
dom to make changes since they were not held back by tradi-
tions. Many of them were first year cheerleaders, so there were
plenty of fresh ideas. Sophomore Gina Peck said, "I enjoyed
being a wrestling cheerleader because we could basically do
what we wanted to and with our small squad it was easy to
The varsity wrestling cheerleaders had a very busy season. For
the first meet, the girls decorated the wrestlers' lockers. The
squad attended all home meets and many away meets with Jack
Fuller, Sr., father of junior wrestler Jack Fuller and sophomore
wrestler Jason Fuller, providing the transportation. The meets
lasted around two hours, and even longer ifthere were more than
two schools competing. Often, meets would last for an entire
Saturday. The first real difficulty encountered was trying to
understand what was going on and how points were earned.
Comments like "What's a takedown?" and "Who's winning?"
were not unusual at the beginning of the season. However, when
the season ended, the girls all used wrestling terms like wrestlers
The wrestlers appreciated the attention they received from the
cheerleaders and were glad to finally have their own cheerlead-
ers. The wrestlers demonstrate their appreciation at Christmas by
giving each squad member a mug and a coaster, which was,
according to sophomore Gina Peck, the highlight of the season.
Coach Beth Wells, said, "l thought it was a nice gesture. Some
rude remarks were made by students about wrestling cheerlead-
ers early in the season, and l'm glad that the wrestlers made it
clear that they were happy to have the girls cheering them on."
