Homecoming highlighted with
victory over Angola
his year's Homecoming
week was packed with several
activities for the classes--in fact,
there were more activites
throughout the week than ever
before. On Monday, or "Come
as you are day", students dressed
in clothing that was usually
reserved for relaxing and
vegetating. Monday evening,
the banana-split eating contest
took place in thecafeteria. It was
the juniors who managed to
consume the largest amount of
bananas and assorted toppings,
which gave them the first win of
But the juniors were not
ahead of the race for long.
Thursday evening, the freshmen
came out victorious by cramming
the most people into a station
wagon. That event gave the
freshmen the only victory that
didn't belong to the juniors or
During Friday's traditional
pep session, the spirit medal was
awarded to the freshmen, class of
'89. Johnathon Pojak, president
of the class, accepted the
prestigious award for his class.
And how did he feel getting up in
front of the school? Johnathon
summed it up in one word:
During halftime that night, a
surprised Liz Castaldi was
crowned Homecoming Queen.
Liz said that she didn't expect it
because "I wasn't on the prom
court." Many people would
expect a Homecoming Queen
nominee to be nervous before the
final decision was to be made,
but not Liz. She became nervous
"only after I won," she added.
The 1985 Homecoming
Week was topped off by the
Spartans beating Angola 20 to 6.
Homecoming week started with a
victory and ended with a victory.

ith the coming of fall, many
boys think about football and
upcoming games. During
Homecoming week, some of the
girls started thinking about their
chance to play the game.
The powderpuff game is
usually one of the largest
activities of Homecoming week.
This year was no different. The
powderpuff game was anticipated
as much as ever.
Both the juniors and seniors
spent several hours of practice in
preparation for the game. Junior
Trudy Brooks said, "We
practiced about every other night,
but there were a lot of
no-shows." However, the teams
still practiced the plays and
readied themselves for the
This year two traditions were
carried on. The first one was the
practical jokes that the seniors
played on the juniors. However,
the jokes turned into vandalism,
undermining the school spirit.
The administration heard
about the egging of cars and
people and lectured the
participants about their behavior.
Manak handled it we1l,"
commented senior Amy Pojak.
"It's a tradition. This year it was
just enlarged too much." Junior
Kim Leeper said, "It was all in
fun." The mishap was cleared up
with no further trouble.
The second tradition was that
the seniors won. Junior Angie
Aiello and senior Julie Toole
scored in the first half to tie the
score at half-time. Toole scored
again in the last quarter to lead the
seniors to their traditional victory
with a score of 12-6.
Most powderpuffers thought
the game was fairly judged by the
referees, "too fairly," commented
Pojak. Some juniors said it was
unfair for the officials to let the
clock run down even when time
was called. This form of
scorekeeping was also a tradition
of the game.
But it was an enjoyable game
for both the players and the
observersg even those who
weren't seniors. "It really
doesn't matter, we'll carry on the
tradition next year," said Leeper.
