During 1984 MHS stu- dents found many ways to make the most of those ten minutes between fourth and fifth periods. When the weather permitted, students flocked to the yard in front of the school to take place in activities such as frisbee, horseshoes, or just relaxing in the sun. Inside, students finished homework or played with the school’s comput- ers in the library According to students, break was a vital part of the school day. Senior Bert Lott stated, ‘“‘Without break | would collapse before the end of the day,’’ while senior Jim Turner said, ‘It gives me a chance to catch up on my work.” Students weren't the only ones who enjoyed break, “‘Break gives me a chance to get out of my room and not worry about my classes for a while,’’ was one teachers comment.

On Thursday, the school went back to the days of Ancient Rome, as students came garbed in sheets and ivy. Friday students dressed in the traditional or- ange and blue to show their spirit and support for the Bulldogs. To sum it all up, Senior Michael Martin ex- pressed his feelings for Spirit Week by saying, ‘‘Spirit Week is a time when students can cut loose and enjoy themselves while still showing support.” Seniors Jennifer Wilder and Paula Kimbrell “‘roost’’ together in a schoolyard pine tree Students of a Greek persuasion congregate in “Trust me!” A favorite line of Indiana front of the school for prize presentations Jones, as portrayed by junior Jonathan Grimes Investment In Time ® © E eS e = © = E @ ® = 2 Student Piast: Michele Kelly smiles as Donna Harri: 1984 Homecoming Queer Homecoming Court for 1984: Sanc man); Michele Hall (Sophomore) nior) e ly (Ser (Jur d Cindy Robbins (Freshn Senior Annette Fletcher ther, Joseph Lawley jut for the 1984 Ho coming The thre Homecoming Student Life 3 Excitement, suspense, and a bit of sadness was felt the night of Homecoming ‘‘84’’. Everyone had mixed emotions as they danced and watched the queen and her court being introduced in the leadout. Seniors seemed to smile with sad- ness, for they realized this was their last homecoming at M.H.S. Michele Kelly stated, ‘‘As | was presented, it The 1984 Homecoming Queen and her court lead the spotlight dance to ‘Almost Para- dise 4 Student Life Homecoming hit me that this was my last home- coming dance. | was so happy to be Homecoming Queen, it was some- thing | always wanted, but | felt like crying knowing this was my last dance.” Even though some felt a little sad, others were excited.

These visitors included a famous personality, William Bradford Huie, who is related to MHS’s Andy Brindley. Mr Huie was quoted as saying, ‘| was in town visiting the university, and decided to take time out to visit with Andy for a while.”’ Relatives to other MHSer’s were Ms. Carol Czerw’s younger sister Carolyn Davenport. Miss Davenport, a 1st Lieutenant, was accompanied by 2nd Lt. Jona- than Defalco, both in the U.S. Army. They were on a mission to build respect and improve the image of military personnel. Their talk included various as- pects of Veterans Day, and was concluded with Ms. Davenport saying, ‘Anyone of you who has the drive can do anything you want to.”’ Visitors are always welcome at MHS. The relations between the students and these, as well as other respected members of our community, are the basis for the support of the school. 6 Student Life ; f ; ao. a eo Jonathan Defalco and Carolyn Davenport visit MHS to share their feelings on Veterans Day National Merit finalist, Bert Lott, calls up information on available scholarships from SOICC ed Tae A Step Ahead Each year, juniors from around the country take the PSAT tests. From these tests, the highest scor- ers are chosen to compete for Na- tional Merit Scholarships. Bert Lott, a senior at MHS, has made it all the way to the finals of this scholarship competition. To become a semi-finalist, Bert had to be in the top half of all PSAT scorers. After being chosen as a semi-finalist, he had to write an essay about himself. “It took a long time to write an essay that didn’t sound pompous, but still was acceptable,”’ says Bert. During his senior year Bert took the SAT test. His score on this test as well as his essay confirmed him as a finalist. Being a finalist as- sures the person of a good educa- tion at a top school. Bert was not the only senior to excel this year. Mike Martin was one of thirty-seven agriculture stu- dents from across the U.S. to re- ceive an all-expense-paid trip to the National Future Farmers of America Seminar on Computers in Washington, D.C. To get this honor Mike won the state competition with his applica- tion of using computers to keep personal farm accounts and the MHS chapter’s various records. While at the seminar Mike had to give a presentation on his uses of the computer. “‘l felt that the semi- nar was a very educational exper- ience about new _ technologies within agriculture, " comments Mike. Each year there are a few stu- dents who go above and beyond the call of duty. These are but two of the many MHS’ers who have shown outstanding qualities throughout the °'84-'85 school year. Orwell’s Doom Did ’84 Live Up? | 984, Orwell’s year, did not produce Big Borther, Ingsoc, or Eurasia as foreshadowed in 1984. The pure Socialist world of Marx's Das Kapitel did not emerge, but neither did Cooper’s Eutopia or Thoreau’s Walden materialize. 1984 was a year full of events and happenings both good and bad. Many individual triumphs went on record in 1984 Jesse Jackson became the first serious black candi- date for President. His “rainbow coalition” carried the state of Virginia in the Democratic primaries. As the first female running mate to an earnest Presiden- tial choice, Geraldine Ferraro also placed her name in the annals of political history. Vanessa Williams became the first black Miss America, and regretfully the first to cede the crown to her runner-up after posing for nude photographs in Penthouse. In medicine, heart work was the order of the year, with two major stories breaking the news. First came Baby Fae, a normal baby except for the fact that she received a baboon heart to replace her own failing one. S he was the first infant to receive such a trans- plant. Unfortunately, she died forty days after receiv- ing the transplant. Next came William Schroeder, a 52 year old man. In 1984 he had the second artificial heart transplant. and the recovery from such an op- eration was a first; Schroeder was active only three days after surgery. 1984 certainly proved the leaps and bounds made in medical advancement. The Republican Dominating Party in the 1984 Election, held their con vention in Datlas, Texas “ a.) — “ », .

Relief camps were set up in Africa to provide food for famine victims Baby Fae was the first infant to ever receive an animal heart Olympian, Mary Decker’s hopes of a gold medal were shattered after a serious fall. India’s Prime Minister, Indira Ghandi, was creamated after being gunned down by members of her personal guard. Many people were killed in Bhopal, India, due to a poisonous gas leak from a Union Car- bide plant But the year did not pass without its tradgedies. In Ethiopia, drought and Civil war brough a famine that killed over one million people. De- spite relief efforts from the UN down to a group of English rockers, who recorded ‘“‘Do They Know It’s Christmas?” to help ‘“‘feed the world,”’ the starvation continues. In Bhopal, India, a posionous gas leaked from a Union Carbide chemi- cal plant causing death and injury to countless natives. Finally, also in In- dia, Prime Minister Indira Ghandi was gunned down by members of her own personal guard. Her death and cremation set off riots that killed hundreds and flung the coun- try into state of chaos. Other events in 1984 included the restoration of the Statue of Liberty, the U.S. intervention in Lebanon, the success of the L.A. Summer Olympics, and the financial flop of the 1984 New Orleans’ World’s Fair. The Ethopian famine killed thousands of people and left many suffering and hungry Current Events Student Life Fashions Spark Excitement In ’85 A blinding flourescent image of yellow, green and orange drifting through the halls of MHS is not an uncommon sight. This haunting vision is just one of MHS’s more extrava- gent ninth graders. These outlandish colors have engulfed every article of clothing imaginable from the most gigantic hair bows to the tinest ballet shoes. They have become one of the hottest fashion crazes of 1985. However, one of these spicy outfits would not be complete without a pair of massive brass earrings, these adding the final touch of ‘‘elegance.”’ On the other extreme, the more conservative MHSers lean toward a more traditional dress style. Their wardrobe in- cludes such items, as multitudes of oxford shirts, Levi's 501’s, and an assortment of Nike shoes. This is the predomi- nant fashion of most male MHSers. Contemporary females at MHS share about the same wardrobe but with an added feminine flare for fashion. The best thing about this type of dress is that it never goes out of style! Trapped in the middle of this melting pot of fashion are the “rustics.’” These people splice the traditional look with the progressive attitudes, forming a unique style within itself. Such things as blue-jean jackets, L.L. Bean loafers and a throng of multicolored scarves are a must for the male rustic. As for the female side, blue-jean jackets, oversized For- enza sweaters, simply shaped earrings, and a bobbed hair- style are necessary for the totally natural look. Within this almagation of people and diverse styles there is still a genuine sense of individuality. This sense separates each person by displaying his uniqueness to the world through the use of clothes. prea Two of MHS's more stylish students, Sophomore Angie Epperson and Junior Sean Roberts. share fashion secrets 12 Student Life Fashions mbir Dine { 1 fashions Sophomore Danny Kelly and Freshman Sandra Sloan show off the year's newest trends from head to toe ‘ae.

These people do this for many reasons ranging from helping to pay for cars to having extra spending money. After school, workers have more responsi- bilities than most high schoolers do. They not only have to do their jobs, but also have to find the extra-time to do school work. Junior Lori Rovelstad, works at McDon- ald’s three or four days a week. “‘It’s a pain in the neck, but it pays for my car,’’ com- ments Lori on her job. Seniors Michele Kelly and Leisa Smither- man do secretarial work at the Montevallo Professional Building, while Randy Cadle works with video equipment for Ronnie Ad- kins. Bill Devinner finds time to work at Western Auto. Stephanie Rutherford earns spending money working part-time at the University of Montevallo’s library. Bob Peete works with lumber at Seaman's Lumber Company. Elise Stewart works in her mother’s pottery shop while Tim Nash helps his father at Nash's Auto Repair. These people should be proud of them- selves for being some of the many dual-role holders at MHS. 14 Student Life grocerie after sch Junior Michelle Cree! the final touches to a bulldog to be used or tote bag Sophomore Cathy Anderson prepares a prescription for glass lenses Seniors Michele Kelly and Leisa Smitherman work together filing addresses into the computer at a local attorney's office Student Life 15 Faces In The Crowd sxc Ars sma, tr affection for one another Junior Victoria Nelson hitches a ride to Sophomore Mary Anne Sailes seems to be Monte sits waiting for the opposing team y . class with fellow classmate LaTresa giving complete concentration to her at the Calera pep rally Cardwell . 16 Student Life sdie ORGANIZATIONS ORGANIZATIONS Contents: Band Drama Club Math Club Student Council Majorettes Flag Corp Honor Society Spotlight FFA FHA Montala Cheerleaders Scholar's Bowl ts Sea ee 'ie ate Student Council Plans The Year Principal Norman Payne describes the goals of the Student Council at Montevallo High School as in- tending to develop leadership, provide an opportuni- ty for the students to share in democratic living, and to promote student participation in worthwhile activi- ties throughout the school. The 1984-85 Montevallo High School Student Council, under the leadership of President Kevin Colley, achieved these challenges and developed many great things for the school throughout the year. The Council provided the student body this fall with sock-hops after each home football game and raised more money than any other council formed here at MHS. The organization also held the first Annual Student Council Banquet at the University of Montevallo this fall. The agenda this spring includes a 50's dance and a community wide Luau party with live entertainment.

But unknown to most peo- ple, Jonathan’s duties actually began two months before the first morning of summer band camp and lasted long after the lights went out on Friday nights. Jonathan traveled to the University of Ala- bama for a four-day drum major camp the last week of June. For the first three days he learned about stance, posture, hand position and music interpretation; on the last day he performed for a grade and received a ‘‘1’’ for his efforts. Jonathan began sweeping the bandroom, Xeroxing and organizing music, and putting names on chairs to help new members find their seats a week before summer band camp started. Jonathan also accompanied the band to both the Thompson and Ft. Walton marching contest where he received ‘‘ones’’ for superior performances. Jonathan stated that being drum major in- cluded more than leading the band but related that “the pride one gets from being part of superior band really makes it worth it.” “Look and act Proud” says drummajor Jonathan _|n the home stands Troubador Pride is Grimes as he describes his disciplined parade rest evident in the faces of M.H.S. Marchers — stance Organizations Band 19 Investing In Time And Energy Practice Pays Off With ... “Ones” Ra on the morning of October 27, the Montevallo Troubadors ventured on their way to the fun-filled beaches of Ft Walton, Florida to compete in the Miracle Strip Marching Festival. The Troubadors had not participated in this contest since 1979, when the band received an overall “‘two.”’ Band members were ready and willing to redeem themselves After arriving at their motel on Ft. Wal- ton Beach, MHS students immediately commenced familiarizing themselves with the area until it was time to depart for the contest at Choctahatchee High School at 2:00. After two hours of frustrating rain delay, the Troubadors took their show onto the field under an emerging sun that seemed to foreshadow success. Later that evening, the omen was fulfilled when the Troubadors received three superior ‘‘ones’’ for their efforts. The majorettes, drum major, and drum line also earned “ones'’ and the flags were given a two Band members then spent a night of celebration on the beach before returning triumphantly with trophies in hand to Montevallo on Sunday , practice must go on g with the Florida sur 20 Organizations Band Band Organizations.2 1 Majorettes And Flags Working Together For Perfection Fo the 1984 marching season, the Trou- badors had a new look with eight majorettes. Although the large group added some prob- lems, the majorettes still received ‘‘ones’’ at both band contests they attended, and also placed first in their camp competition at the University of Montevallo. This was mainly due to hard work, dedication, and extra hours. During summer band, the girls began an hour early and came back for two additional hours every afternoon. Summer plans were given up in order to attend practices and polish routines. The long hours spent really paid off on Friday nights and everyone felt the season was a com- plete success. Bue 1984 flag corps added a lot to this year’s marching season. They spent longer hours practicing with the band, and even longer hours perfecting their routines on their own. They began work at a special week-long clinic held by Joe Terry, assistant band director at Vestavia High School. Their efforts paid off at the Thompson High School contest, where they received an overall ‘‘one’’ and at Choctahatat- chee High in Ft. Walton where they were given a ‘“‘two”’ for their excellent performance. ob 2) Juniors Michele Creel and Beth Allen pause during the opening number Organizations Majorettes 6 MIC j heir flags d ) the F tr tir Pamela eel and De Belinda Tripp and Karen McPherson keep in perfect rhythmic time with their flags during the inishing the routine, Pamela Cree! and .

They started the year by of- fering a service new to MHS. Using the SOICC computer, Society members gather information on schools, scholarships, and jobs throughout the state and U.S. to pass on to students who request it. In November, Honor students col- lected money for Multiple Sclerosis. Also in No- vember and December a tutoring service was offered to those who needed assistance on up- coming exams. When school resumed after Christmas the Society distributed Honor Roll ribbons. In the Spring, a teacher appreciation and 8th grade orientation day were held. Final- ly, the society tapped new members in a cere- mony in front of the school. 1.

Practice A. the lights dimmed and the cur- tain rose on the 1984-85 Drama Club, MHS saw another successful year full of star performances. First on stage was a short one-scene play presented in front of the student body. Carla Mis- sildine, as a young teacher, and Elvin Thompson, portraying a disillusioned black student, excellently portrayed the problems of a young student trying to get an education and a teacher who is dissatisfied with her position with the university. With this project complete, Drama students moved on to another produc- tion to be presented at MHS, this time at night — the annual Christmas play. Auditions were held after school for two days to select a cast for The Plight Before Christmas. Jon Carter was cho- sen as Ebeneezer Humbug, the lead character in the old-west parody of Dickens’ A Christmas Carol. He was supported by Paul Brown, Leah Baker, Stann Mahan, Mandy Fowler, Jay Ed- wards, and a host of others including Lonnie Layton as a Mr. T-like charac- ter. After weeks of grueling work by not only the performers, but also by those unsung heroes of the props, cos- tumes, makeup, wardrobe, and set crews, the play was a smashing suc- cess on its one-night production at MHS. The last production of 1984 was the competition play. The Bear by Anton Checkov. The three-member cast con- sisted of Senior Bert Lott as Grigory Smirnov, a Russian landowner; Cathy Anderson, a Sophomore who played Madame Popova, a young widow; and Junior Dean Alexander as Popova’s servant, Luka. The play was taken on the road to the Alabama Speech and Drama Festival where it placed second in Class A one-act plays. In addition, Bert Lott was named Best Actor in Class A and Cathy Anderson was elected to the All-Star cast. Sponsor, Mrs. Belisle, who directs all plays, was extremely pleased with the performances given and is looking for- ward to the upcoming Spring Produc- tion. President of the Drama Club Bert Lott quoted, ‘‘It was one of the busiest and most successful seasons | have ever particiapted in,’’ as well as, ‘‘Dra- ma is an institution at MHS, and | hope we can continue to excell, and as the saying goes, ‘Break a leg!’ ’ Paul Brown catches his fainted love, Stann Ma- han, while being intimidated by Ralph Burke and his friend, Reggie Mann while Jon Carter solemn- ly holds his ground Drama Club Organizations Learning To Do Doing To Learn Learning To Live Living To Serve ' Unlike many school organiza- ie) tions, FFA is active twelve months a year. Summer finds its members at their busiest, a ttending workshops, conferences, and conventions. The Livestock Judging and the Ag Me- chanics Teams competed at the State Convention. The chapter had four state farmers. Seniors Mike Martin, Timmy Nash, Bert Peete, and Bob Peete, and won a gold rat- ing in new FFA competition comput- ers in Agriculture. Other than in the state convention MHS FFA’ers participated in various workshops. The chapter officers participated in the North East Cen- tral District, the West Central Dis- trict, and the Chapter Officers Workshops. At these, leadership skills were taught and members were able to exchange ideas with other FFA’ers throughout the state. The chapter also sent a representa- tive to the State Cooperative Youth Conference. Students of the Montevallo FFA chapter found that the summer time was the time to get ready for steer and lamb shows. The chapter later participated in these types of shows and also held their own, the Monte- vallo Invitational Steer Show. When the community needs help the FFA chapter helps and when the FFA needs help so does the com- munity. The community helps sup- port the FFA through its two main fund raisers — the hog raffle and the citrus sale. The FFA chapter also held a barnyard with animals galore for the Montevallo Elemen- ta ry School. All in all, to be a member of the FFA means more than being a Vo- Ag student; It means that a person must commit himself for twelve months to being a member of the FFA.

Row : King, Scott [ Cur Preparing For The Future The Future Homemakers of America has participated in various activities over the past year getting them ready for years to come as a home econo- mist. Such as having numerous re- cource people come and talk to the students about the responsibilities of family life and marriage customs. Along with the different activities, the club visited the Briarcliff Nursing Home in December taking Christmas joy and celebrating the birthdays for that month Family Living provides essential learning experiences through which students develop an understanding and appreciation of the home. As a basic unit in society, the family is the setting for human development. This basis was analyzed by many MHSers through a course known as Family Liv- ing, which is taught by Mrs. Junie Craig. These students studied the var- ious stages of Human development starting with the adolescent years up to marriage. The students were taught how to cope with common problems that are faced by many youths during this crucial period. Through text book work and actual participation in a mo- del wedding some MHSers got a head start on life! ng with his ‘‘eternally " ’ {1 companion, Taffy Hall, junior, prepare t the cake in the Family Living Mock 1985 FHA New uniforms and veterans helped the 1984-’85 Varsity Cheerleaders get off to a fantastic start this year. With a spring sale that netted nearly $800, the girls added new blue jumpers and white V-neck sweaters and traditional Letter sweaters to.their wardrobe. By selling spirit ribbons, M M’s, and calen- dars during football season, the '85-'86 squad will have almost $700 to start their term. All of the cheerleaders have had at least one year’s experience as either a Varsity or B-Team cheerleader. The ‘‘Veteran’’ squad attended a four day clinic at the University of Montevallo, during which they learned and later performed three cheers and two pom- pon routines.

Students worked sixth period each day and countless hours outside school to gather informa- tion and put it into pictures and type. At the beginning of the year, sponsor Heidi Ross taught the basics to the staff and then turned them loose on the school. In the spring, staffers visited the Herff Jones Plant to learn about how the year- books are constructed. The staff has been working this spring getting ready for the ’86 annual, which will include the prom, baseball, track, and graduation. Along with the revolution of a yearbook that comes out in the spring comes the new found enjoyment of sharing the memories of the year before everyone has finally gone.

For many years the MONTALA included each school year in its entirety. However, to include all of the events, spring and fall, the yearbook staff had to work well into the summer. With more students attending summer school, working, and vacationing, it has been close to an impossi- ble task to get the staff together to finalize the book, especially when many members graduate every year. Thus, the production of a spring delivered yearbook was the only answer. “What a lot of people do not realize,’’ remarked Mrs. Ross, advisor to the staff, ‘‘is that every page in the year- book, from its beginning until it is ready to mailed to the plant, takes about four hours of labor — many take even longer. Multiply this by all the pages submitted after school is Out, and it’s easy to see the hours mount. When the staff is involved in so many summer projects, it’s impossible to get the work finished, and the pressure and work falls to a busy few.”’ After working with Josten’s representative, Steve Wald, and Mr. Payne, it was decided a spring yearbook was the obvious solution. ‘‘Ninety percent of all schools are pro- ducing spring books because of the same reasons,”’ stat- ed Mr. Wald. Since this year has to be the transition, the spring events, which include the Prom, graduation, Awards’ Day, and spring sports, will have to be carried over to next year’s book. Color senior portraits, which are thought to be a tradition, was actually only started a few years ago. In fact, the first year, the senior class had to pay for this privilege. Now with the number of seniors increasing, this practice is not feasible. It is unfortunate that this transition falls on the 1985 seniors, but it was inevitable. After the change is made, the new spring yearbooks should be looked forward to with greater excitement and anticipa- tion.

But here at MHS, there are some more creative collectors in the junior class Michelle Creel says, ‘“‘l have an assortment of ten keychains ranging from a rabbit's foot to a wooden shoe.” Brian Crump and Lee Fulton both have hundreds of ‘‘Red Hots’’ can- dy boxes lining their walls.

Fund raisers have become a way Of life for those who are involved in the activities and organizations at school. It would be glorious to say the system or the state could financially carry the burden for every auxilliary group, but that responsibility falls to the schools and then to each orga- nization. The heaviest load seems heaped on the backs of the juniors — the class responsible for provid- ing funds for the junior-senior Prom. Raising a couple hundred dollars seems an easy task, but raising a couple thousand becomes a monu- mental undertaking.

Several smaller projects throughout the year add the neces- sary captial. For some of the students, selling is an exhilarating challenge, while for others, it is a dreaded exper- ience. “It comes on you all at the same time, and you have to go back to the same people to sell to again,”’ stated Michelle Creel, who sold for Publications class, the majorettes, and magazines for the Prom. Other groups who were responsible for raising money were the cheer- leaders, journalism students, and flag corps. In short, it can be said that the juniors put forth a great effort each year in supporting MHS in many ways.

Why? These people are the few who live out of Shelby County or far away. The reasons for traveling the extra miles to be able to attend Montevallo High School are varied. For those living out of Shelby County, their reasons are that Montevallo is closer to attend, or they feel that the school has better curriculum. One sophomore, who must leave her home at 7:00 A.M. to be on time for school, says it is worth it to be able to remain with her friends. Bibb County seems to be the only other county in which “‘illegal’’ students live. Others interviewed said they should be attending Shelby County, Thompson, or Bibb County High Schools, but that they have yet to receive personal complaints from school officials. So while many of us can officially attend Montevallo High School, there are the few “aliens’’ who willingly invade this school against the odds. 4 y Kelly ja Killinaswortt Michael Kimbrel At MHS, the different classes of students are involved in various group activities. For example, Freshmen enter high school in Au- gust with a fresh start at a new school that includes excitement. Juniors are continuous- ly busy selling products to raise money for their account, ordering and receiving their class rings, and preparing for their first prom. Seniors also encounter a busy sched- ule, receiving their senior portraits, ordering invitations for graduation, and simply pre- paring for their near future. Where does that leave the sophomores? To many, in a state of confusion. The new- ness of high school life has died down, and the days become monotonous. Sophomore Mandy Fowler says, “‘The days are boring without anything to look forward to. It would be better if there were more activities for the sophomores as a class.” On the other hand, there are those who may have the same opinion as Cathy Ander- son. ‘I think being a sophomore is more exciting than being, say, a freshman, be- cause when you’ re a freshman you’re looked down upon by the upperclassmen. Once you've reached “‘sophomorehood”’ it’s like you've passed an initiation, and you can join in the fun with the juniors and seniors.” No matter which opinion one might have, the task is left to the individual to decide whether he will ‘just get by’’ or really make his sophomore year one to remember.

And, likewise, does freedom always accompany age? Many freshmen believe these old axioms absolutely. What difference could one school year or one school building possibly make to this youthful group? First of all, they have more control over their lives from 8:00-3:00. For instance, it is up to each individual to be on time, or face the consequences of after school detension. In middle school they were marched from one class to the next in single file lines. Secondly, the rules are not as strict about classroom be- havior. Wendy Chandler commented, ‘‘l like being able to chew gum in class!’’ Another reason is there are choices available. Tomi Harkins expressed that she liked being able to choose her own classes; it’s like deciding one’s own fate. A fourth difference is having a ten minute break and free time between classes in which to visit with friends not seen often. Allin all, the transition seems to be as much “‘mental’’ as ‘‘physical.’’ They acquire a feeling of maturity — step- ping closer to adulthood — by accepting responsibility for their own decisions.

The team consisted of four seniors, three sophomores, two freshmen, and one seventh grader; so Coach Bishop plans to keep most of the players around for at least two more years. The outlook for the future is great, but nobody can complain about this year’s team, either. The Lady Bulldogs finished the season with a 5-5 record.
