Editors Advisors Mark Lambert Cover Design Troy Sims Photographs Mr. J. Devlin Mr. R. Serluco Scott Mills Mr. J. Fitzmartin Mr. R. Mullins We Dedicate This Book To Mr. Reid E. Watson Mr. Joseph Gibbons The countless hours and limitless energy spent on behalf of Girard College and its students by these two men, we will not forget. Nor will we forget their individual concern for us, their forthright and consistent honesty. To Mr. Reid E. Watson and Mr. Joseph Gibbons the class of 1979 extends its most sincere tnanks. To these true friends we dedicate our book. 2 The Class of 1979 wishes to express their appreciation to all those, faculty, staff, and employees, who have made their stay at Girard a pleasant one. 3 Letter From The President TO THE CLASS OF 1979 You are on the threshold of graduation from a great school and entrance into the Alumni of that school. You are about to share a fellowship which is difficult for anyone to define for you. You must now become a part of a great and vital tradition. The Class of 1979 has left its mark on Girard College and you have contributed in many ways to making it a finer school. It is our hope that Girard has given you faith in yourselves and a vision of service which you can render to society. I should like to record here the charge which has been given for many years to the members of the graduating class as part of the Commencement Exercises: “Sons of Girard, I charge y ou now, and in the days to come, to be truly Sons of Girard: to prove yourselves worthy of this name, never to betray the trust which the Founder placed in you; to use in the building of your lives what you have learned here--not only the knowledge gained, but the qualities of character which have been developed-an understanding of your fellow man, loyalty and devotion to your country and all it represents, and love and reverence for your God. You may not all have the occasion to do great things, but you can all do right things. You may not all have the opportunity to be heroes, but you can all manifest nobility of character. You may not all bring forth world-shaking ideas, but you can all express intelligence and integrity and loving kindness. Just as the lives of those Girardians who have preceded you may serve as an inspiration to you, so may you, in turn, not only inspire the generations of Girardians which are to follow, but alsoan influence for good upon all whomyour lives willtouch.” May life be good to you! 4 President ADMINISTRATION FACULTY F r ° : Dr - J - Ma 9lll; Dr. V.

McNeil; M. ClanfranI; B. Beverly; S. Garner 2nd Row: R. Schmeltzer; C. Prior; R. Bohner; A. Taylor M. Chambers; M. Anthony; J. Kuznlckl; G. Reilly 3rd Row: Mr. Ronald Quinn, Coach; G. Gathers; N. Mayrant; P. Rogers; J. D’Amico; T. Sims The 1978 soccer season was one of rebuilding and reorganization. The problem facing coach Ronald Quinn was how to turn the raw potential and talent into the championship team it could be. Mr. Quinn realized that he could not build a championship team in only one year, but since most of the team members were sophomores, he realized also that he had years to work with them. Although the team did not become the champions many hoped they would be, they gained something more valuable, a knowledge of the game of soccer. Once an athlete can say he has the knowledge of his game, then, and only then, can he start to become a really good player of that game. This year’s team consisted of seven seniors, one junior, and eight sophomores. The seniors were there along with Mr. Qui nn to help in the instruction of the younger, less experienced players. The team did not consider themselves losers at the end of the season because they had learned, among other things, perserverance and dedication. If the Girard soccer team can continue this attitude in the future, they will surely become champions. 54 CROSS COUNTRY The cross country team consisted of eighteen dedicated runners. In a sport that is both physically and mentally demanding it is imperative that each member of the team put forth one hundred percent of his effort. This the cross country team did, with two practices a day, a two-mile run in the morning and another five or six mile run in the afternoon. This year’s team, as well as the last two teams, has been coached and inspired by the hard work and dedication of Mr. Geoffrey Schulz. As a result of hard work on both his and the team’s part, other teams no longer consider Girard an easy victory. The team is proud of its own accomplishments and of its coach. 55 WRESTLING 1 t Row: G. Crafton; K. Bethea; M. Clanfrani; A. Cunningham; G. Gathers 2nd Row: Mr. Brian Seeber, Coach; N. Williams; S. Gathers; C. Camthers 3rd Row: R. Bohner T. Sims; R. Reilly; C. Prion G. Clory The 1978 varsity wrestling team began its training early in September. Their exceptional record of fifteen wins and one loss is evidence of the long hours of hard work and dedication put forth by each team member. Although the team did not win the Penn-Jersey League Championship, as many thought they would, they did come in second and finished the season with a league record of eight wins and no losses. The “Killer Squad” brought home the first place trophy from the Perkiomen Invitational Takedown Tournament and topped off the season with an overwhelming first place victory at our own Girard Invitational Tournament, taking four first places and two seconds. The varsity wrestling team was a close team with all of its members working and sacrificing to make 1979 not only a notable year in wrestling for Girard, but also in aiding in the building of next year’s team. This year’s team consisted of seven seniors, three juniors, and five sophomores. These wrestlers were truly dedicated and practiced strenuously under the vigorous direction of Coach Brian Seeber. 56 SWIMMING 1st Row: J. Schmeltzer, R. Schmeltzer, K. Patton, D. O ' Melia 2nd Row: T. Overton, J. Dudley, K. Annand, J. Annand, B. Daniels, J. Chambers 3rd Row: C. Bassey, G. Prior, J. Czbas, Mr. G. Schulz, Coach This year’s varsity swim team was coached by Mr. Geoffery Schulz. Under his supervision, and with the assistance of Mr. Tim Tews, the team progressed greatly not only physically but mentally as well. Unlike other years, the practices continually grew harder throughout the season to keep the swimmers in top physical shape. The practices consisted of 30 minutes of dry land exercises followed by an average of 2 miles of swimming. Although the team was composed of mostly junior high students, they proved to be a vital asset to the team. The team will be losing only one member, Jim Czbas, a senior, who plans to return next year as an assistant coach. Many of the opposing teams were composed almost entirely of seniors, so the future of the Girard College swim team looks promising. The team would like to thank Mr. Schulz and Mr. Tews for their assistance in building a solid foundation for the years to come. We await their return next year. 57 BASKETBALL 1st Row: O. Gowans; Mr. David McKay, Coach; A. Bames 2nd Row: T. Dlrenzo; G. Crawley; K. Cornltcher; R. Douglas. I. Lee; G. Crawley; W. McNeil 3rd Row: P. Rivera; S. Mills; P. Rogers; C. Coulter This year’s basketball team set as a goal for themselves winning a spot in the Penn-Jersey playoffs. While this goal was not realized, the team was barely edged out of the playoffs by Friend’s Central who had a similar record of four wins and four losses in the league but had beaten Girard during the regular season. Each member of the Girard squad put a hundred percent effort into every game. We won some unexpected games and lost some that we should have won, but at no point did the team let up, even against some of the most difficult opponents until the final whistle. The team was lead by the senior captains, A1 Barnes, Owen Gowens, and Dwight Rainey, who made vital contributions in terms of good defense, points, assists, steals, and team leadership. Although it will be hard to fill these spots next year, it can be done with hard work and determination. The team’s final record was eight wins and eleven losses, which was respectable considering the caliber of the other teams played. The highlight of the year was the faculty game which turned out to be not only fun but competitive as well. 58 BASEBALL 1st Row: C. Brennan; T. DiRenzo; R. Trotter; W. Stanlslawczyk; M. Clantrani; P. Rivera 2nd Row: Mr. H. Maurice, Asst. Coach; S. Swords; C. Coulter; K. Cornitcher; J. Tllllnghaat; Mr. W. Gallagher, Coach 3rd Row: P. Rogers; F. Sillittl; G. Reilly; J. D’Amico; O. Gowans; G. Cucculnl The turnout for the 1979 varsity baseball team was large and enthusiastic, although by the time the season opened, the numbers were diminished considerably. The resulting team consisted of eleven players: four seniors, one junior, two sophomores, and three freshmen. The coaches, Mr. William Gallagher and Mr. Harry Maurice, did an excellent job in developing the potential of each player and in teaching the team the fundamentals of baseball. Although the team is young, it has much talent to be developed. With the coaches’s guidance and training, next year’s varsity should be one of the best teams Girard has seen in many years. We wish them and the coaches good luck. 59 TENNIS 1st Row: C. Bassey; J. Kuznicki; J. Czbas 2nd Row: D. Mattsinger; R. Reilly; S. Jenkins; R. Kaercher 3rd Row: G. Trew; V. Reilly; T. Merkel The 1979 varsity tennis team was under the direction of coaches Mr. John Kozemple and Mr. Jim Thomas. Under their supervision, the team strove towards excellence but finished with moderate success. Practices were held regularly, including an early morning, 6:00 A.M., practice to limber up the muscles and to help in correcting careless errors. This not only improved the individual’s game but also the team’s development and strength. Although the team was inexperienced, consisting mostly of underclassmen, they were not held back in their progress. The underclassmen showed great potential and learned quickly, thus becoming an important asset to the team. With the loss of only three seniors, the future of Girard Tennis is on the up swing and looks quite promising. In order to have a good season next year, all of this year’s team members must return in order to establish a firm foundation for next year’s team. 60 TRACK 1st Row: N. Williams; G. Cr awley; G. Clory; J. Ceasar M. Masters 2nd Row: K. Myrlck; A. James; A. Peterkln; W. McNeil; A. Sanford; H. Jones 3rd Row: C. Stanislawczyk; W. Dennis; A. Williams; Mr. Geoffrey Schulz, Coach This year was a building year for the varsity track team which consisted of only eight members. The team, which was fairly young, consisted of one senior, four juniors, two sophomores and one freshman. The team received frequent help from the junior high members, some of whom were very good runners and will be a great asset to the future varsity team. Although the team did not pull through with many victories, it was, nevertheless, prosperous. There were notable improvements in individual times and distance? s well as in preparations for next year’s team. As with other teams at Girard, there were some setbacks, such as members quitting and others becoming ineligible because of discipline problems. This only served to make the other team members work harder, both individually and as a team, to develop their talents and to build the team to what it was. 61 LETTERMEN FALL SPORTS WINTER SPORTS SPRING SPORTS Soccer Wrestling Baseball Anthony, 77, 78 Bethea, 77, 78, 79 Anthony, 78 Bohncr, 77, 78 Bohner, 77, 78, 79 Cianfrani, 76, 78 Cianfrani, 77 Clory, 78, 79 Cuccuini, 79 Clory, 78 Crafton 78, 79 D’Amico 77, 78, 79 Crafton, 77 Gathers, 77, 78, 79 Gowans, 78, 79 D’Amico, 77, 78 Goldberg, 77, 78, 79 Prior, 74 Cuccuini, 77 Prior, 79 Reilly, 78 Kuznicki, 77, 78 Sims, 79 Rogers, 78, 79 Pr ior, 77, 78 Reilly, 77, 78 Stanislawczyk, 77, 78, 79 Sillitti, 79 Rogers, 77, 78 Swimming Track Sims, 78 Bassey, 77, 78 Clory, 79 Cross Country Czbas, 76, 77, 78, 79 Czbas, 76 Prior, 77 Gathers, 76 Crafton, 78 Gathers, 75. 76, 77, 78 Goldberg, 74 Sims, 76, 77 Lambert, 78 Basketball Tennis McNeil, 78 Barnes, 77, 78, 79 Bassey, 79 Cianfrani, 76 Czbas, 78, 79 D’Amico, 78 Kuznicki, 79 Gowans, 78, 79 Mills, 79 Rainey, 77, 78 Rogers, 79 Purdie, 78, 79 62 CAMPUS QUOTES But Mr. Watson Da Butt Thanks For The Apples Guys Starsky, Hutch, Wake Up Ku-Ku Whatever Who Got Caught This Time It’s The Undercover Engineers Switcheroo Violation And They All Got Up And Went Like This I’ll Chickie You You Paul Revere Eat Your Stewed Tomatoes tap tap tap Open This Door tap tap tap Does That Make Sense To You Test!
