Lot of ffNews'9 August issues of the local newspaper were filled with reports of scholarship win- ners, Harris poll ratings, and the process of selecting a new superintendent. As the first day of school approached registration times, appointments for pictures, and prac- tice times for activities were publicized. The selection of a new superintendent, Charles Bradberry made prominent headlines. Mr. Bradberry attended high school in Nacogdoches, Texas. He finished second in his class and attended college at North Texas State and the University of Wyoming. Mr. Bradberry has been involv- ed with education for sixteen years, seven years as a superintendent. Mr. Bradberry made himself visible by being involved in pep rallies, attending football games, and Good deeds are done by students too! During the halftime intermission, band members shake hands with the elderly people from local nursing homes. Student council arranged for these people to attend the football games as a part of the Golden Unicorn project. VOE means helping others. Senior Rita Garza helps Bill Ball and Jeff Ervin with registration. The list of new items at school included a salad bar. Dawn Quent helps herself to some fresh, green salad plus all the trimmings for just fifteen cents a ounce. making regular school visits. New sights around school included a salad bar and new outfits for the Unicorn Handlers. The salad bar offered fresh let- tuce with different toppings and dressings. The Unicorn Handlers added jumpsuits to expand their wardrobe to allow for cold weather. The local newspaper made it impossible to ignore information about the start of a new year. Yes, August 29 came fast, but students were back in the routine of things quickly. The student council began organizing the Golden Unicorn project, so that this activity could get into full swing for the first football game. There was a lot of news for everyone as the year began. 2-opening Lg...-t .parvum -,,.g,aul ,qannnvnm gmwbuunil-35' ,,,-an-1 ,au-vvawwuw mmnwvdv illlll if l IL-1 'E-.5 if L f2 Q up Q rf Lmfn X s 5 ?

Not only did students and faculty members become involved in school activities this year, but parents and local businesses took an active part in supporting the Unicorns. From waiting in line for tickets at seven o'clock in the morning to displaying signs with spirit phrases in front of SIOICS to cheering the team on to victory, the community showed its spirit and support for the Unicorns. Data processing is new to everyone! Kelly Ard, Charles Zech, and Kevin Jonas diligently work at their com- puters as Trinity Brandt, Greg Carter, and Marty Espinoza gather around to see how information is retrieved from the computer after being stored on a magnetic disk.

From stu- dent life to athletics, changes make each year more signifi- cant and special than the year before. Although some changes went relatively unnoticed, most were important enough to make the headlines of the local newspapers. Football made the news ear- ly in the year with a second place ranking for the team in 4A schools by the Harris poll. As the season progressed, the Unicorns' tie with Gonzales moved the ranking to fifth and the loss to Fredericksburg mov- ed the team to ninth in the state. But the change in rank- ings did not affect the Unicorns' playing ability as they moved into the play-offs as expected. However, the loss to the Bay City Blackcats in the semi-finals ended the season for the Unicorns making the final ranking third in the state. The patrons of the school district began showing their support of the school system early in the year. Along with students and faculty members, parents and local businesses visibly supported school ac- tivities and boosted school spirit. Local businesses such as Walker's Fried Chicken, Webb Lube Center, and Robar's showed their support of the Unicorns by displaying dif- ferent signs with spirit phrases in front of their stores. Through attendance at home football games, local fans showed their support of the Unicorns to a tune of 337,921.00 From waiting in line for football tickets at seven o'clock in the morning to buy- ing t-shirts with Unicorn decals, the community did its part in supporting the Unicorns on and off the field or court. Changes were made to im- prove the quality of the school. Parking permits, which gave the office an accurate record of cars belonging on campus, were new to the students. The permits were issued to aid the administration in contacting students who had car problems such as lights left on, burglaries, and gas leaks. In conjunction with the second year of implementing the snif- fer dog program, the permits enabled the administration to quietly get students out of class if an incident involving their cars occurred. The sniffer dog program was considered an "insurance policy" to keep the campus drug free, however, the number of campus visits were reduced. With the constant changes occurring on campus, making the news, and improving the school, students, teachers, and fans made the school and its variety of programs a source of community pride. Parking permits are issued by vice- principal Charles Engler to keep an ac- curate count of the authorized cars on campus. opening 5 +V iv" ., . ox 4-4- 'J F f gt .44 , fix' In the N EWS S Ch fud rlsty nt tkin Rh Ond 3 F ' rltsch Qoo ooox xox ooooxex soclxfzo oox.

The Environmental Health Protection Agency said that the asbestos on the ceilings in the school was endangering the health of those in the building and mandated that the ceilings be scraped down and redone with other materials. This project was completed just before school started. The teachers had the new task of moving back into the classrooms to get ready for the new school year. The freshmen were welcomed to high school by principal John Turman and assistant principal Charles Engler at Freshmen Orientation. The new student body president, Chris Lacy, urged the freshmen to become involved in as many school organizations as possible. With over eighty percent of the student body active in extra-curricular activities, freshmen found it easy to become involved in something. As usual the start of athletic practices and band practices signaled the beginning of the school year. Unicorn volleyball was expected to have a rebuilding season after losing five seniors, the football team anticipated an even better season than the previous year, and the band had high expectations for top rankings at the state marching contest. A joint effort aided in building a positive attitude toward the school, faculty and administration. School had started, but Dena Dietert and Wendy Langabeer worked on the weekends as gate keepers at the local tourist attraction, The Tube Chute. Friday morning practices with the band give the Monoceras a chance to polish up their halftime per- formance. Linda Pate, Wendy Langabeer, Shelley Baros, Tracy FranzwCaptain, and Sally de Leon wait for the whistle to blow so they can march. Tracy looks back to find out what is causing the delay. 8 beginning of school Every teacher had the time-consuming job of moving back into the classrooms. Ms. Jeanne Belnap receives help from Stephanie Smith while unpacking her teaching supplies. Asbestos had been scraped off the ceiling, and Hermenia Mejia and Juanita Mendoza take advan- tage ofthe quiet halls to make last minute touch-ups. Their job was to make sure all classrooms were in "tip-top" shape for the first day of school. ., ,gg ,W ,, ,H VW iw-H --1" .. .. -,-.w.1-i...,..l.s1' : -fi -QF' Ffa.: 1, 1 'T-"'6I'.Z-"'-rf:-,7.j lj: fy Rv , Q, Q .

Overseas, the Russians did not approve of the U.S. Marines protecting non- communist countries from communist aggression. The natives of Lebanon did not appreciate the American involvement and displayed their disapproval through opening fire on our troops. In America, overseas involvement was a touchy subject with the young adults. They feared that their immediate tomorrows might be spent fighting for their freedom. On the homefront, news included higher local telephone rates, courtesy of the split in the Bell Telephone Company. Another topic of conversation was the massi' number of new companies offering low' long-distance rates. On the darker side - the news scene, an American athlete wa found to have been using steroids at tl Pan-American Games. After th: discovery, other team members hasti fled, without comment as to the reason 1 their departures. It was widely believe that they too were using steroids. On the local scene, the N.B.I.S.I remained in the headlines as Mr. Charln Bradberry replaced Mr. O. E. Hendricl as superintendent. The high school made the news as tl football team once again advanced to star play-offs and as the students receivni 'st 5 .s K Unicorn fans lined up at 7:30 a.m. to purchase tickets so they could watch the football team make headlines. Mr. Kenneth Ruhd came equipped for a long wait in line with his lawn chair and a coffee cup in hand.

Published reports showed lat students of our high school scored igher averages on the SAT than did the average" Texas student or the "average" merican student. Despite our high :hool's records of excellence, Governor lark White felt that some Texas school istricts were graduating illiterate udents. He assembled a committee, "the lue Ribbon Committee on Educationv, ith H. Ross Perot as the chairman to :ad the investigation of the schools. A .ain concern of the group was that ex- acurricular activities were taking too ,uch away from academic time. A bill as proposed that would require U.I.L. participants to be passing four academic courses, instead of three. Mr. Perot in- dividually proposed that LQ extracur- ricular activities take place before or after school hours. This would entail having -:Q athletic, band, drama, and similiar ac- tivities practice and compete outside of the normal school day. "That,s the significant news of the day," summed up the announcer. "Tune in later when we will update this information and bring you the new headlines concerning the world around you." Bandman makes headlines. The Texas Music Educators' Association selected Dennis Hartman for the All-State Orchestra because of his expertise in playing the French horn. : l ..,, ....,. . . sl-4' T ,ii, 0' "fl"-aim , T Daily news items have nnpact on the student body. current events-l l utting on the Ritz anted: high school females, beautiful, talented, intelligent, and well- rounded students to be ambassadors of good will for New Braunfels. These were part of the requirements set by the Comal County Fair Association, Lambda Psi Chapter of Beta Sigma Phi, and the senior class as candidates were recruited for Fair Queen, Junior Miss, and homecoming queen. Many hours were spent at the Canyon High School commons as 33 junior girls anticipated the big event, the Comal County Fair Queen Contest. An afternoon of personal interviews and tiring rehearsals preceded the public performance. Each candidate expressed their feelings on how the Comal County Fair benefited New Braunfels. On the night of September 18, the curious audience awaited the final announcement. Carolyn Fey was crowned Fair Queen, Tammi Seidel, princess, and Kay Knippa, duchess. In another local contest, girls competed for the title of New Braunfels Junior Miss. Again many hours were spent at the Civic Center practicing talent, getting the steps down for poise and appearance, and perfecting the physical fitness dance to "Greased Lightning? Hard work proved to be the key as four of the five winners were from N.B.H.S. Fourth runner-up was Nicole Cieslicki, third runner-up was Lisa Thelander, second runner-up was Suzan Carmichael, first runner-up ffrom Canyonj was Monica Krieg, and New Braunfels Junior Miss was Barbara May. Next, homecoming week brought on the traditional festivities with the usual petitions being signed. The student body voted on the four candidates who were selected by the senior class. Anne Schumann and Jean Marie Sterling were crowned duchesses, Tracy Moore- princess, and Michelle Jaramillo was crowned homecoming queen. Although all participants were not crowned a winner, each girl gained experience, and made new friends to last a lifetime. Smiles and anticipation cross the faces of Michelle Jaramillo and her escort Joe Reyes before Michelle was crowned Homecoming Queen. Fair Queen winners are Tammi Seidel-princess, Carolyn Fey-queen, and Kay Knippa-duchess.

Petitions for homecoming queen were circulated by hopeful senior girls. Although a conflict over false signatures arose as the first set of petitions were returned, nine correctly completed petitions were returned after the second set was issued. These nominees were reduced to four finalists by the vote of the senior class. The entire student body then voted on the final placement. Anne Schumann and Jean Marie Sterling were elected duchessesg Tracy Moore was elected princess, and Michelle Jaramillo was named queen. Other traditions were the senior breakfast and bonfire. On the morning of the bonfire, seniors gathered at Cypress Bend Park, the bonfire sight, where they were served breakfast. The break was welcomed by those students who had slaved all night on the bonfire. After breakfast, work began once again only to be halted when an accident occurred. As Julie Clonts was riding atop of some brush being trucked back to the bonfire sight, she and the brush were blown off the truck by a gust of wind. She was rushed to the hospital by ambulance where it was determined that she had sustained multiple skull fractures, bruises, and cuts. Julie was transferred to the Methodist Hospital in San Antonio for further treatment. The bonfire was cancelled as a result of a general consensus of the students, administration and city officials. Seniors were asked to return to school, if they wished, where they could receive updated information about Julie's condition. Instead of joining hands in a spirit ring encircling the bonfire, students joined their hands and hearts in prayer for Julie during a candlelight prayer service in front of school. "It was tragic that the accident happened, but it left the students, especially the seniors, with a certain closeness that had never existed," commented Mr. Charles Engler, vice principal. The next evening, the football game and homecoming activities were dedicated to Julie. The new found bond was seen as the students cheered the team on to a 31-0 victory over Lockhart. Even though there was the traditional dance in the cafeteria, most of the students flocked to Heidelburg Halle where Fast Forward, a popular rock group, was playing. Improvement in Julie's condition, the victory, and the upbeat music ended the week on a good note. Safety measures must be taken while cutting wood with a chainsaw. Rodney Fischer, Charlie Wagen- fuehr, and John Arnold cut the brush so that it may be safely stacked onto the growing bonfire.

Even though the percen- tage seemed small, the effects of the youths' activities were apparent everywhere. Whether it was at the football games, rest homes, or at businesses, students made their presence known. Youths found great satisfaction in performing acts of charity with their peers. They par- ticipated in a book drive to benefit the Teen Connection, a food drive at Thanksgiving, the Jaycees' Toys for Tots drive, a blood drive, and the Golden Unicorn Project. Students also collected donations for Spina Bifida, American Heart Association, American Cancer Society, Muscular Dystrophy, Easter Seals, and March of Dimes. Students also helped build houses for low-income families, participated in a Rent-a-Kid project, visited with the residents at the rest homes, worked in places of business through the vocational programs, and hid eggs for an Easter Egg Hunt at the First Protestant Church Kindergarten. The community showed its support by pur- chasing animals and food items during Queen of Hearts and the youth show and booster certificates supporting Unicorn athletics and band. The Lions' Club, Rotary Club, American Legion, Gptimist Club, and Elks Lodge contributed scholarships and held banquets to show their appreciation for the youth of the ci- agp. ty, as did the Greater New Braunfels Arts Council, German-American Socie- ty, Comal County Sheriff's Posse, New Braunfels Educators, and Parent- Teacher Association. The Masonic Lodge, Knights of Columbus, Comal In- dependent Men's Association, Order of the Eagles, Woodmen of the World, and Veterans of Foreign Wars also displayed interest through providing banquets and scholarships. This interest proved to spark a working and caring relationship between the youth and the community. The students realized that all adults were not "old fuddy-duddies" who drove 20 mph in the 30 mph zone and always said "when I was a kid I had to walk 10 miles to school, barefooted in the snow." Finally, the adults realized that all youths were not "little brats" who drove 40 mph in the 30 mph zone or who threw wild par- ties with loud, corrupt rock-n-roll music. Despite the bad, national publicity young people were given concerning suicide and drugs, local students' achievements were constantly making headlines and top news stories. The in- volvement of the youth seemed to fill the generation gap by providing services for groups or individuals when there was a need. Playing Easter Bunny is fun! Tammy Shearer and Michelle King hide eggs for the students of the First Protestant Nursery School. The HECE members hid eggs as a part of their community service program. "It's so rewarding to see the enthusiasm that's generated by high school youth in their activities. Adults and children who benefit from these endeavors return more than time and energy through gratitude and smiles."--Mrs. Joannie Garza community events-17 Sonic Drive-In provides a place for Shay Clark, Jonathan Reich, and Jody Sanders to gather and discuss the social activities of the evening. Trees draped with rolls of toilet paper are a common sight to many awakening victims of the paperers. Tom Dukeis house is one of the victims that sports a "good" papering job. 31 life li K -4 . 7.., cffwsfq, un Costs Money hether or not there was a good movie showing or there was a decent band playing, students some how seemed to find some source of entertainment. Many students remained on campus after the dismissal bell rang because of involvement in extracurricular activities. Athletics, band, and drama practices occupied many hours. But there was always time for the fun things. For students, "fun things" included "cruising, town, movies, dances, concerts, toilet papering houses, trips, and parties. But there was one obstacle in the way, the lack of funds. "Cruising" town took gas and gas took money. Many of the youths avoided this expense by congregating at Sonic Drive-In. Movies, dances, and concerts cost approximately 54, SS, and S15 for admission. This did not include the cost of refreshments and souvenirs. The price of toilet paper was also costly when it took eighty rolls to do a "good" job on a large yard. It was even more costly if the paperers were caught. Culprits could be charged with a class C misdemeanor and be tried for criminal mischief. Nevertheless, teens enjoyed papering houses Qbecause it was daring and provided something to doj. During Christmas and spring break, many students took advantage of the time off to go snow skiing or to take a coast trip. This too proposed a money problem. But it was overcome and the students tood trips with their families, churches, and friends. Back-to-school, birthday, toga, victory, holiday, and graduation parties were as popular as ever, but entertaining meant spending money. Refreshments were the chief expenses. A six pack of drinks cost around 52.75, a bag of chips cost around 75, and dips ranged from around 5.90 to 52.00. The average attendance was about forty people and cost the host over S75. More elaborate parties had one hundred or more in attendance. At these parties, the cost was usually split among several hosts and hostesses. Many students discovered that they enjoyed smaller get-togethers to watch V.H.S. movies or cable television. Although money was a large issue in a teenager's after hours activities, the amount of fun was a larger one. And even though many felt there was absolutely nothing to do, few teenagers sat at home on Friday and Saturday nights.

Overweight bodies and unclear skin were the results of fun- draisers such as Queen of Hearts bake sales, junior class candy bars, and M 8a M's sold by the Spanish club. Finances for necessities are low. At times, it actually seemed as if rais- ing money was the main objective in students' lives. If students were not sell- ing pizzas for the band, coupon books for the Future Homemakers of America, carnations for the Future Teachers of America, or donuts for the cheerleaders, they were peddling candy 20-fundraisers elling Makes Cent bars for the choir, selling crystal for the Future Business Leaders of America, fruit or raffle tickets for the Future Farmers of America, spirit ribbons for the pep squad, crepes for the French Club, or posters for Distributive Educa- tion. People wondered if the buying and selling would ever end. All together the student body raised approximately 370,521.00 during the year. Was it worth it all? Yes! Thanks to Queen of Hearts, the yearbook staff published and sold the 1984 UNICORN for 510.00 each. The choir and band competed and toured at Six Flags Over Texas. FBLA and DECA were able to attend their respective state conventions in Houston and San Antonio. Without money-making pro- jects, these and other trips and conven- tions would not have been possible. Fun- draisers cut the cost of trips propor- tionately by the amount the student raised. By the end of the year, most students were tired of buying and selling. The only remedy to fundraisers was finding a good summer job in order to have money for next year's projects and for Rolaids. 4 Lg...

For one week, members of all four classes would be competing to raise the most money by participating in three projects. Each class felt that food sales during lunch would be profitable. For the other two projects, the seniors chose to have a talent show and a car rally. The juniors put all of their effort into a car wash. The sophomores decided to have a car wash funded by pledges and a dunking booth. Other projects for the freshman class were a raffle and the fishwalk. Fun Night, with cake auctions and class competition, provided another source of revenue for classes and was the highlight of the activities. Events Clash of the Classes such as the bat spin, scooter board race, and egg-in-spoon race made for heated but enjoyable class competition. During the cake auction, the seniors auctioned two cakes for a grand total of 5l040.00. Fun Night proceeds totalled 52958.00 The cake auction brought in 52550.00 and ticket sales accounted for 5408.00. The commercial art department decorated the cafeteria using the theme, "A Little Bit of Heaven." The corona- tion took place on Saturday night with juniors Laura Tyner and David deLemos crowned Duchess and Duke. The juniors raised 51530.81. In third place raising 52416.50 was the sophomore class with representatives Mark McWilliams and Kim Timmer- mann crowned Duke and Duchess.

Tammy Harvison and Mike Vineyard pose for photographer John Marshall. A new "twist" to the prom is a dance contest which replaced the traditional reading of the senior wills. Lavonne Schlabach and Tim Doty won the contest with their unique style. Senior wills were not read due to a lack of interest and participation. Cost of prom night goes up. Steven Pusateri is eagerly taking Tom Duke's money in exchange for two prom tickets and a receipt to have pictures made the night of the prom for a total of nine dollars. It's the little things that count. Dana Mills and Linda Pate assemble one hundred tiny parasols to decorate the Japanese section. The room was divided into different areas decorated according to the culture of a chosen country to carry out the theme, "It's a Small World." 5 1 Starting From Square One, AGAIN T he date, April l4th, was set a year in advance. Jay Eric and the Blieder's Creek Band and the recreation hall at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Church were reserved seven months prior to the date. The decorations were ordered one month ahead of time. And then it was time for the prom. But where were the decorations? On the day before the prom, the decorations had yet to come in. Mrs. Francis Bond, head junior class sponsor, and Christy Atkins, decorations chairperson, kept their cool and started from square one again! They went from decorating house to decorating house collecting what they could to support the theme, "It,s A Small World." By ll:00 Saturday morning, the "new,' decorations arrived at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Church. The decorating was supposed to be finished by one o'clock, but it took until 3:30 with eleven people and three sponsors working continuously. After sighs of relief, everyone went home to relax and get dressed. For those going out to eat before the prom, the evening began at 6:00. After the traditional pinning of the corsages and boutonnieres, couples drove to San Antonio for "fine" dining. Some of the guys went so far as to rent limousines to arrive in style. Following an enjoyable meal it was back to New Braunfels for the prom, which started at 8:00. Im- mediately a line formed to get pictures made by John Marshall. When the dancers got thirsty or hungry, they went to the refreshment table for fresh fruit, desserts, and punch which were provided by Plain or Fancy Caterers. The prom evening was not an inexpensive one. The average cost including tuxedo rental, din- ner, and pictures was around Sl25, not to mention the extra charge for those who rented a limo. When all was said and done, it seemed as if the fuss over the decorations was for nothing. After all the main purpose of the prom was to have some fun and fellowship in a formal way. Slow dancing and swaying to the music is enjoyed by everyone as Jay Eric and the Blieder's Creek Band play. i--'A- my Necessity is always the mother of invention.--Plato and Mrs. Bond prom-25 Maps to Campus Life are given out every Monday.

Matti Mantynen and Anssi Hyvonen from Kuopio, Finland, Pierre Mars from the Blaton Providence of Hainaut in Belgium, and Maria Bayer from Lindenberg, Bavaria, in West Germany, arrived in New Braunfels "to exchange culture and traditions." All four agreed that school was much easier here. In Finland, for example, everyone was required to take two foreign languages in addition to other required courses. In Germany, students attended school for thirteen years in order to be accepted to a university. High schools in Belgium were operated like colleges in America. For example, English classes met on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, and math classes met on Tuesday and Thursday. As exchange students with just six classes, Matti and Anssi found extra time to play tennis and attend school sponsored activities. Both felt that more emphasis was put on school sports in American schools. In Finland, there were no school organized sports or club activities. Maria enjoyed Wurstfest, Landa Park, and reading the German monuments around town. She also participated on the cross-country and track teams. Pierre became involved in school activities through membership in Campus Life and as a spectator at most football, volleyball, and basketball games. These students found America to be very different in religion, driving privileges, and girls wearing so much make-up. Similarities were few, but all agreed on the "great American hospitality." Maria concluded, NI like it here, but I'll be glad to get back home to my family, but of course l'll miss all my new found American friends." "Exchanging culture and customs" was their goal special people 27 Rotary Outstanding Students are front row: Robert Sarkozi, Kourtney Kahler, Barbara Urdiales, Kenda Noah, Stoney Williams, Andrea Clarke, Linda Wilson, Suzan Carmichael, Dena Dietert, Beth Schlameus.

Students who were selected as Boys' and Girls' State Representatives, Foreign Exchange Students, and Rotary Outstanding Students were given the opportunities to explore governmental procedures, foreign countries, and educational offerings. Boys' and Girls' State Representatives embarked for a seven day stay at the University of Texas and a ten day stay at Texas Lutheran College. The students experienced politics first hand by running for state and local offices in their imaginary states. Traveling to foreign countries for a few weeks or an entire year was a memorable adventure for three students. Randy Long and Mike Wofford, sponsored by the Wurstfest Association, traveled to Braunfels, Germany for four weeks. Through the Rotary International Youth Exchange Program, Jana Sanders was selected to spend a year in The Netherlands in a small village named Gorssel-Zutphen near Apeldoorn. By applying to be an L. exchange student, Jana agreed to graduate a year later. However, this was not a drawback to her. "It's going to be worth graduating a year later," she stated positively. Another project of the Rotary Club was honoring twenty outstanding seniors. Although this honor did not involve spending time away from home, it did bring recognition from the college board. This meant that these seniors would have a better chance of getting into the college of their choice and possibly obtaining a scholarship or two. Starting college was their adventure. How did all of these students get chosen for these opportunities? They applied at the counselor's office, were recommended by teachers, or were selected according to their grade point average. Teacher selections were often based on citizenship, responsibility, and character. Being selected was a great honor, but the adventurers were experiencing the real thing. Packing early!

Many times it seemed as if no one cared if you received an A or a C, but someone did care. Because your parents insisted on more, you achieved more. They cared. At the senior awards banquet, feelings of pride and accomplishment filled the minds of parents, students, administrators, and teachers. The monetary awards ranged from grants to private, state and technical schools to athletic scholarships. Now you realized why your "mean old,' mom wouldn't settle for the red marks "everybody else got." Boy was she '99 "mean, But, wasnit it worth it?

Making the Connection Teen Connection was a co- educational, individualized program offering credit for academic studies. It was designed to meet the needs of students who did not function well in a traditional school set- ting. The program also includ- ed an emergency shelter for girls who were considered status offenders Crunaways, etc.j or who were in need of an alternate living situation because of severe family problems. The Teen Connection Alter- native School staff consisted of two teachers, Mrs. Jo Cooper and Mrs. Kathy Tyzzer. The director and organizer was Mrs. Nancy Ney who developed the program over a two year period. Individual, group, and family therapy were made available according to need by Mrs. Joanne Strentzsch. Teen Connection was an ex- tension of the high school. It was funded by a state grant which was acquired through New Braunfels Independent School District. All students at Teen Connection previously at- tended Comal county schools. The students remained enrolled in school and teachers recorded grades reported by the center. The courses that the students were taking were continued at the alternative school. The at- tendance was recorded so that each student that attended this school contributed to the high school daily attendance. The student council became involv- ed when two members, Carolyn Fey and Christy Atkins, volunteered to be on the board of directors of Teen Connection to represent the high school and to express student views on certain issues. Teen Connection served the purpose of allowing students to continue their high school education. The program of- fered an answer for individuals who could not handle the or- dinary classroom situation. teen connection 37 Chaos!

Four advanced placement classes were offered: English taught by Mrs. Judy Seifert, German taught by Mr. Benno Engel, French taught by Miss Jeanne Belnap, and biology taught by Mrs. Faye Clarke. Each course was designed to prepare students for college entrance and to build confidence for further usage of their educational skills. Students had to be ap- proved by the instructor to be enrolled in the classes. An important element in col- lege preparation was the col- lege entrance exam. These tests challenged all knowledge gain- ed in high school classes and determined whether or not students were accepted to a particular college or received a scholarship. Three students in the graduating class who scored high enough on the SAT to be National Merit Scholars were Dennis Hartman. Robert Sarkozi, and Linda Wilson. Most students who planned to attend college began prepar- ing early in the year. Decisions as to the college or university which would provide the necessary elements to pursue individual goals had to be made. In addition to tuition, other financial decisions had to be considered: housing, transporation, etc. Students had a wide range of electives and required courses to choose from to ready themselves for the future. Col- lege preparation offered at the high school level influenced in- dividual decisions, helping each student to choose the right courses, the right college, the right career, and the right direction for a successful future.

It happened when you performed your first piano recital or when you stood in front of a large au- dience to say your lines in the first grade play. But you also remember the pride that came after you received an excellent rating or you managed to coax the words you needed to say. Proud moments became more plentiful as you became move involved. The first time you received straight A's, when your big brother was accepted at West Point, and when your seventh grade football team was named district champions were all the moments that made you swell with pride. In high school, the demands were greater. It was tougher to make the honor roll. It wasn't your big brother applying to colleges-it was you who was working hard to be accepted to a college. May 21 was the date set for the seniors awards banquet. Seniors who were receiving awards received special invita- tions. Again, you felt the pride when that envelope was open- ed. You arrived excited and ex- pectant, wondering what tg of award you would recei The invocation was giv scholarships were distribut but the Who's Who awa' were yet to be given. In ez department an exceptional s dent was chosen for their terest, leadership, scholarsh and citizenship. It was a prc moment for those few seniors that would remembered. Forget all the pressures tj led to this moment. It v worth it. The moment i yours to savor and to take pr in your success. 5 if 4 Demontratring his talent!

The team shut out San Marcos, 29 to O, and Bastrop, 38 to 0. They defeated the previously unscored upon Georgetown Eagles, 40 to 6. Seguin was the most challenging of the pre- district games. In the first three minutes Seguin scored fourteen points, leaving many fans doubtful of a win. But the Unicorns fought back with a positive attitude to claim vic- tory over the Matadors, 30to 20. Along with physical training, the coaches also had to train the team mentally. Confidence gave the edge to gain control and dominate the opponents. Pre-district did more than give the team a 4 and 0 record, it set the pace for the upcoming district games. Good sportsmanship and proper con- duct are the Unicorns' best traits. They demonstrate this at the Bastrop game as the team captains, Tim Doty C57j, Greg Bender fl6j, and Stoney Williams 1295, meet in the middle of the field to greet their opponents. John Matney also served as a team captain. 46 varsity football Going, going, gone! That's Rick Purdy as he runs through the San Marcos defense to score a touchdown.

As stated by Coach Jim Streety, "ln the middle of district, the Unicorns just were not playing their best." It was to the Unicorns credit that they were still good enough to win and earn a spot in the playoffs. The Unicorns played six games with a 4-1-1 record in district. The first game was against Canyon. The Cougars put up a good fight to keep the offense from scoring, but they were unsuccessful. Rick Purdy, Paul Crawford, and David deLemos scored against the Cougars to put the Unicorns on top 24-15. The team shined against the Lockhart Lions. Greg Bender attempted 14 passes and com- pleted ll of them. Rick Purdy played exceptionally well, scor- ing four touchdowns. The Unicorns won 31-0. The hardest game the Unicorns played was against Gonzales. The Apaches recovered three fumbles. The only touchdown made was by tight end, Mark Millet, with an extra point made by Bobby Tristan. The Unicorns were trailing at the half by three points in the Kerrville game, but came back in the second half with two touchdowns. David deLemos ran 26 yards for a touchdown, and Paul Crawford pushed across from two yards out for another score. The final tally was 20-16. The stormy weather at Fredericksburg complicated the team's game plan. The Unicorns led at the halftime, 6- 0. The Billies came back in the second half with a touchdown to take the victory, 7-6. The Unicorns clinched a spot in the playoffs with a victory over Hays. The Unicorns allow- ed only four first downs-none in the second half. Greg Bender attempted 12 passes with 7 completions. Rick Purdy ran 133 yards for one touchdown. David deLemos gained 85 yards on one touchdown run, and Brett Bingham ran 38 yards for another touchdown. The game ended, 23-0. The Unicorns were second in district and eighth in state before competing in the playoffs. Team members Tim Doty, Bryan Frassmann, Mark Millet, Doug Campbell, and John Matney were named to the all district team. The uphill struggle paid off and it was on to the playoffs. Many hours of rough practice dur- ing the summer were required. Coach Tim Kingsbury gives in- structions to the team. 8 ,N AA' M , .4 J it V .fin - Vi .... 7. . It A 2 Jw if .z if . 5' .

It was an uphill struggle through district. The awful weather at Fredericksburg and the Gon- zales "snake pit", where it seemed if anything could go wrong, it would, were odds the team overcame. Things leveled off when playoffs began. The team capitalized on their ex- perience gained from playoff games the previous year. The defense shined in the Carrizo Springs game. The Unicorns stopped Carrizo's high powered offense, which capitalized on big pass plays. Carrizo scored 18 points while the Unicorns scored 56 points. And Then There Were Four This game claimed the bi- district championship. During the Brownsville Pace game, New Braunfels gained 304 yards while Pace gained 102 yards with only 4 first downs. David deLemos sprinted 65 yards to put the first points on the board follow- ed by a field goal in the second half. David deLemos and Rick Purdy both gained over 100 yards rushing. The final score was New Braunfels 10 and Pace 7. The Unicorns were regional champs. Pure revenge was the motivation in the Fredericksburg game. The Unicorns ran over 80 offensive plays. The defense allowed only three first downs during the game. The final score of this quarter final clash was Unicorns 16 and the Billies 12. The Unicorns faced Bay Ci- ty with a positive attitude. Trainer Dean Laird com- mented, "Bay City appeared very well prepared and had faster, more talented athletes." Early in the game, an offensive breakdown led to the first in- terception and score for Bay City. From there things went downhill. When the clock ran out, the final score was New Braunfels 6 and Bay City 49. When the dust cleared, New Braunfels was ranked tenth in the state and was one of two schools in the state to finish in 50-varsity football Paul Crawford 1351 shakes loose a Fredericksburg defender. Moral support is important. Chris Ben- son C24J, Mike Sullivan 1771, and Powell Phillips i651 cheer for the team during the Bay City game. the top ten for three cc secutive years. Team membc Tim Doty, Bryan Frassmar and Bobby Tristan were nam to the All Centex team. A state players were Tim Dc -and Bryan Frassmann.

Practice What made the junior varsi- ty team successful? The skills did not just come naturally. Hours of grueling practice on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays with games on Thursdays helped develop and polish skills. The practices in- cluded jingle jangles, weight lifting, gut quarters, and metabolics. Personal talents Makes Perfect combined with abilities as a team added to the success of the team. The team reigned as district champions. Coach David Bailiff stated, "If such good qualities are kept up, they have a very good chance of winning a district trophy the next two years." The season record showed only one loss with nine victories to the credit of the young team. All the hours of practice and teamwork finally paid off. The team met personal goals and achieved a winning season as a group. Stephen Millet 1443 is lighting for extra yardage at Hays while Kenneth Findley 1723 protects against the defenders.

Most of the "glory" went to junior varsity and varsity. But just being on the team meant a great deal to the guys. It was not just wear- ing the football jersey and practicing everyday. It was go- ing out there and winning the game and making a name for the team. Providing a foundation for techniques and giving the players experience they needed to advance to the j .v. and varsi- ty squads were special purposes of the freshman team. The fact that the stadium was not filled did not prevent the team from performing well and posting an outstanding record of 7-2-1. The players trained for the op- portunity to move up to the junior varsity level. They ap- plied the skills they learned to make them better football players and teammates. Good defense is the best offense. Brett Stahl C551 flies into the air to tip the ball away from an Apache receiver.

According to the members of the team, dedication, desire, and a positive attitude hit the top of the list. These qualities were important to the team to make it successful. Since there were only two returning senior starters, Dawn Cook and Teresa Thomas, much mental as well as physical preparation was essential. Mental exper- tise, toughness, and emotional stability contributed to the teamis success. The Unicorns started the naments, but Kim Wright was honored with the all- tournament title at the Fraulein Volleyfest. The team finished out pre-district with a loss to Smithson Valley, but earned an overall pre-district record of 10-9. The team came a long way in pre-district to cap off the season with ten wins. The members claimed this was the result of a positive attitude. The major concern was to have a strong team that could work together. Whether they won or lost, the Unicorns took pride in season with a 15-9, 15-12 vic- tory over Alamo Heights. They participated in two pre-district tournaments in San Marcos and New Braunfels. The team did not place in these tour- their volleyball skills. One of the two returning seniors, Teresa Thomas tl7j, demonstrates her serving ability during the Urseline game. .-.

HERALD. varsity volleyball-57 Team Enjoys Friendl Ri alr All sports have their share of rivalry. In our town, there ex- ists a friendly rivalry with Ca- nyon High School that has turned into a tradition. It is not only school against school, it is a more personal rivalry because the members of each team know each other from other out of school activities. Some of the students are even related to the rivals. Since 1980, the teams have battled it out and the results were always the same. In each game the scores are ex- tremely close. Winning boiled down to one aspect, homecourt advantage. Each year when the Unicorns hosted Canyon, they were victorious, and when Ca- nyon hosted the Unicorns, they came out on top. The first district game against Canyon was lost 13-15, 13-15 in the Canyon gym. The second game however, the var- sity won 15-12, 15-12 at home. Scores are similar from past years. In fact, Canyon has scored a total of 222 points against the varsity and the Unicorns have scored 249 points against Canyon. Coach Claudia Perry stated, S'The tradition lives onf' The tradi- tion is not only the one win, one loss status every year, but the friendly rivalry which gets the teams worked up for these games. The Unicorns missed a play-off chance, but did win a match against the eventual State Champions and helped continue the traditional rivalry against Canyon. ,.....-n r. 58 varsity volleyball Rhonda Reed and Dawn Cook lead the team in a cheer as they make their way down San Antonio street in the Comal County Fair Parade.

Although the season record did not show it, the team had a difficult and slow start due to a lack of unity. Accor- ding to Coach Claudia Perry, the girls quickly realized this and the result was a new at- titude and a winning season. They began district with a 7-0 pre-season record and ended the season with a record of 16- 6 overall. This accomplish- ment, according to the players, was a result of hard work and an extra effort by all. The team began practice in the beginning of August and practiced three hours a day. This became ob- vious in the games and tournaments. The team played in two tour- naments. At the San Marcos contest, the girls defeated Killeen, San Marcos, and Tem- ple to take second place. The second tournament was held at Smithson Valley, where they won the Consolation trophy after beating Hays and Southwest. The junior varsity exhibited the qualities of a winning team as they projected a positive at- titude, along with the will- ingness to work hard together toward developing their play- ing skills. According to the members of the team, team- work and self discipline were their keys to success.

Teresa Thomas, Ramona Sanchez, Robin Raborn, and Aimee Norton also helped contribute to the win. "The boys did well in representing New Braunfels," stated Coach Fred Pink, "and they are growing stronger every.. year." Both teams scheduled six races before the district meet. Because of people being sick or hurt, there were not enough people to run as a team, so they 64--cross country had to compete individually. Four of the boys' meets were run as a team, however. They received third place at Medina Valley and Gonzales, fourth at Fredericksburg, and sixth at Kerrville. The girls' cross coun- try team only ran as a full team in the district, regional, and state meets. The girls placed second and the boys placed third at district. First and se- cond place winners advanced to regionals. The girls placed se- cond at the regional meet in San Antonio. They then travel- ed to Georgetown for state where they placed sixth. In the end, hard work, dedication, and consistency paid off individually and for the team. These runners definitely had something to smile about.

Histor Repeats Itself For the Unicorn basketball program, history repeated itself. For the second straight year, the basketball team suf- fered because of the football team's success in the state playoffs. The Unicorns suited up only seven players for most of the pre-district schedule, and only one of those players had ever seen action in a varsi- ty basketball game. The tough pre-district schedule did not help the cause either. Without the football players, the team won only two games, one of those a 51-34 stomping of cross-town rival Canyon. David Caddell, Bill Fox, Mike Wof- ford, Todd Baris, Tilo Schmidt, Robin Elrod, and John Muschalek formed the mini- version of the Unicorn basket- ball team. After what seemed like forever for the players beginn- ing the season, the entire squad was intact on December 12th. Greg Bender, John Matney, Brent Free, Kenan Ikels, and Victor Sierra came over from football to complete the squad. The team did not have much time to prepare for the district opener, which was less than a month away. The Unicorns lost their first game as a complete squad to the state ranked Alamo Heights Mules. The Unicorns did, however, get on track at the Boerne Tourna- ment. The Unicorns finished out the pre-district schedule with a 61-31 thrashing of Smithson Valley. Heading into district play the team was 7-9. varsity basketball-67 SEASON RECORD N.B.

The am, however, had a hard time tting rolling in district play. ie Unicorns lost the district tener to Canyon, 52-43, and it ok a long time to recover om this loss. The team lost its :xt four games. "I thought the iening loss to Canyon was ry crucial," said Unicorn :ad coach Cliff Wilkins. The nys did not get on track until e last game of the first round. fter losing the first five strict games, the Unicorns ploded against the Hays l ,, Rebels. Every player con- tributed in the effort as the Unicorns demolished Hays by a score of 82-47. The second round of district play was not much better for the hard luck Unicorns. The team lost three very close games to knock themselves out of playoff contention. The Unicorns lost to Canyon by three, Lockhart by four, and Gonzales by five in consecutive games. The Unicorns, however, did not give up. In the very next game, the team rebounded to knock off the then district leading Kerrville Tivy Antlers. I ---in - 1- The team finally got the break they needed when Greg Bender's desperation shot from the corner went in with no time remaining. Bender led the team with 22 points in the 56-54 vic- tory over Kerrville. The Unicorns finished out district play with two strong games against Fredericksburg and Hays. Fredericksburg, who had beaten the Unicorns by nine points in their first meeting, did not have a chance as the Unicorns jumped out to an ear- ly lead and never let up. The team beat the Billies, 69-34. In the last game of the season, the Unicorns continued their win- ning ways by trouncing Hays, 62-51. The squad was 4-8 in district, but Coach Wilkins was pleased with the effort. "I think we showed a lot of courage and intestinal fortitude by coming back and winning our last three games," said Coach Wilkins. "I think we proved to everyone that we are not quittersf' he continued. The Unicorns never could quite get over the hump. As Wilkins stated, "With a few breaks, things could have been a lot different." varsity basketball-69 A quick pass to Barry Baker 1243 under the basket sets up a lay up shot.

At Smithson Valley the squad rumbled to a third place finish. One thing that attributed to the success of the team, accor- ding to Coach Neal Miller, was the strong leadership shown by the juniors, especially Bill Fox and Mike Wofford. Coach Miller also stated that the ef- fort put in at practices was another factor in the team's success. junior varsity basketball 71 Team Peaks Too Late The extended football season put off practices for the freshmen for one month because Coach David Bailiff had to help prepare for the football playoff games. During the preseason, the team played 5A schools. These teams were more advanced in their skills and provided stiff competition. The team worked on techni- ques and skills. These skills were developed by conditioning mentally and physically. Physically, the team put in two hours of rough practice daily which included running across the gym floor seventeen times. Mentally, the squad went over the top plays and each player prepared individually for their team assignment. The A team finished out the season with a 8-10 record.

These qualities continue to be learned and developed during the season. Perhaps pa- tience is the most important characteristic of a team. The squad needed patience because they were young and had many skills to learn and develop quickly. The squad was very young, but Coach Patsy Davis quickly pointed out that this had its advantages and disad- vantages. "One of the advan- tages of being a young team was the eagerness of the players to learn. The disadvan- tages were the lack of ex- perience, jitters, and not being familiar with playing as a team," commented Coach Davis. The team also had only one returning starter, Teresa Thomas, and three returning players, Sabrina Sanchez, Kim Wright, and Debbie Smith.

Despite the lack of senior leadership, the Unicorns won Consolation and Teresa Thomas was selected for the all-tournament team at the Boerne tournament. The most memorable game, however, was the game against Canyon at home. The reason being the big rivalry between the schools and the fact that Canyon defeated the Unicorns by only two points in the previous game.

She began playing basketball in third grade and considered her father the main influence behind her involvement in basketball. Tee also par- ticipated in volleyball, cross country, and track. Although she did well in all these sports, Tee liked basketball the best because of the options she had on the court and because there was more thinking involved in the game. She was a silent leader off the court according to her teammates. She did not say much on the court either, but when she did, her voice could always be heard. She was someone to look up to, and she was respected for her ability and enthusiasm toward basketball. Her enthusiasm was reflected in her playing and helped earn awards and honors her senior year. Tee held the record as the top scorer with 410 points total for the season 76--varsity basketball which was an average of 15.8 points per game. She was the top free throw shooter with a 56.8'Zn average from the free throw line, the top rebounder with a total of 265 rebounds, and the top person in intercep- tions with a total of 103, averaging 3.9 per game. Tee was also second in assists. She made first team in district, third team in regionals, and received the "all tournament" title at the Boerne Tourna- ment. Coach Patsy Davis felt that part of Tee's success was due to her aggressiveness in the game. "She has guts," com- mented Coach Davis. Tee felt that she did well in basketball because she just "likes playing basketball." With all these ac- complishments, Tee has a bright future. Although she was unsure about where she would like to attend college, Tee was positive that she would like to stay in Texas and play basketball.

This and the fact that the record was the best record of any j.v. in the past three years gave the girls something to be proud of. Besides devoting their time to improving the season record, the team served as a stepping stone to the varsity squad. What the squad lacked in numbers, they made up with words of encouragement and support. The team started off the season with a loss to Boerne and came back to beat Ur- suline and Southwest to make the record 2-1.

The Unicorns defeated the Tivy team which had twice the number of players and a lot of height. The team finished out the season with a district record of 4-8 to earn fourth place in district and a 9-1 1 over all record. Since there were only seven members on the team, the players had an abundance of playing time. This provided ex- perience for the squad and a good basis for the future varsity.

No, this was not a re-run of the Twilight Zone, it was not an at- tack of the plague, nor was it an extra-terrestrial being, it was the j.v. team recruiting members. The freshmen began their season with eight players and a 3-0 record by defeating Boerne, East Central, and Seguin. This record began to dwindle as the members of the team began to supplement the j.v. Besides this problem, there also was the problem of absent referees. In the home game against East Central High School, the referees failed to arrive and the girls were forced to forfeit. Three games before the end of the season, one player, Yvonne Mesa, returned from the j.v. to help ease the burden of a five player team. The last two games were lost. However, the scores were very close. The freshmen ended the season with a 6-12 record. Even in this no win situation, the freshmen believed that they were winners despite the record. According to coach Patsy Davis, something had to be said for the endurance of these players, not just physical- ly, but mentally. Through adversity, problems with referees, and the enrichment of the j.v., the squad never quit.

"They always gave their best effort, and were always com- petitive", said head coach Lew Simmonds. "Our goal at the beginning of the season was to improve each week, and be as ready as we could be for the district meet, and I feel like we ac- complished that goal," he said. And they did indeed, however, this came after much hard work. The team began practice in the last week of February. "The season is too long to begin any earlierf' stated Simmonds. Practice consisted of average workouts of one and a half hours for the varsity and junior erall Ability Is Outstanding varsity runners, and about one hour for the freshmen. These workouts included running the 200 meter dash eight times for the varsity and j.v. teams, and tive times for the freshmen team. Workouts were held five days a week. The amount of work involved required a certain type of athlete. "He had to have in- testinal fortitude, a love of run- ning, a love of competition, and self motivation, if he was in- volved in field events, he need- ed strength, quickness, agility, and a competitive spirit," the coach commented. These qualifications produced a relatively strong team, in spite of some weakness in the 400 and 800 meter dash, and mile relay.

Through dedication and hard work, the team was a'2'e to make a strong showing in the competitive circuit. They took first place in the Cougar Relays, third at the Unicorn Relays, second in the South Austin Relays, and finally, third at district competition in Kerrville. The most memorable meet was at Canyon. Sim- monds went on to say, "We 5 iff? W3 y . took first place, but the mo important thing was that v really came together as team."

S niors Lead As the track season drew to an end, Coach Lew Simmonds took time to reflect upon the team and its accomplishments. He also took time to make some personal comments about some of the seniors on the team. Keith Buck, captain of the team, was one such senior. "He had great work habits and always gave 10095 of his effort to anything he was involved in. He was truly an inspiration to both his coaches and fellow teammates," stated the coach. Greg Bender and Stoney Williams also came to mind. "Greg was a great athlete. He had a positive mental attitude and was an eternal optimist. Stoney had a great desire to ex- cel in his events. He was truly a pleasure to be around," Sim- monds continued. Team As for the members of the junior varsity team, Coach Simmonds felt that although they were small in number, the j.v. tracksters were composed of "excellent competitors and hard workers." Coach Sim- monds also felt that this was in- strumental in their placing se- cond in district competition. When asked about the freshmen team, Coach Sim- monds commented, "The freshmen team had many athletes, all good workers with positive attitudes. They have many possibilities for the future."

"Well for one thing, the meets were exhausting. Getting tense before your event and giving it all you had were hard on the psyche and the body. You had to be dedicated, keep in shape, and keep pushing yourself to be better. At the meets it was easy to hear us. We were the half-crazed team cheering on whoever was competing." "How did you feel after a meet?" "Afterwards you feel a great sense of relief, accomplish- ment, and exhaustion. It was a good feeling because even if you didn't win first place in your event, you tried your best. But no matter how exhausted we were, track was exciting and completely unpredictable. Some meets were very surpris- ing. At the Matador relays, we were predicted to place sixth or seventh because of the level of competition. We worked hard at that meet and took fourth place? "Where were the meets held and which was the most memorable?" "Most of us have our own opinion as to which was the most memorable. It was pro- bably the meet that each did their personal best in their event. Most of the team agrees, however, that the first meet, the Chaparral Relays at Austin Westlake, was the best because One, Two, Three, BLUE! is the cue to Belinda Rodriguez to receive the hand off from Michele Simmonds in the 880 meter relay.

Westlake has a nice track and the weather was nice with no strong wind. We placed fourth at the Chaparral Relays. Other people thought that the Kerrville and Seguin meets were memorable because they were feeling good that day and the weather was nice. The Smithson Valley and the Can- yon meets, where we placed sixth and third, were nice because we knew many of the people we were competing against. There was a more relaxed atmosphere and a sup- portive crowd." "How about the workouts, were they fun too?" "Yes, the learning involved and the hours of practice brought a group of individuals closer together. Coach Fred Pink deserves credit for instill- ing confidence in us regarding our abilities and for making the whole experience enjoyable." "When was the psyche you mentioned important?i' "All of the time. But if you got too psyched, nervousness was the result and you might blow it. Conversely, if you weren't psyched at all you had nothing to run on. Having the right attitude for a meet was difficult. This is also where Coach Pink helped by giving us confidence, which was really appreciatedf' "Track really sounds dif- ferent and exciting. It's been good talking to you. And thanks? girls' track 87 The phrase "Life in the fast lane" epitomizes the success the track team enjoyed this year. Through hard work and determination, tracksters were able to move up the UIL ladder to state competition. After district, 'those who placed first or second in their respective events were eligible for regional competition in Corpus Christi. This group consisted of Lisa McKinnis, Teresa Thomas, Kim Whitaker, and the 400 and 1600 meter relay teams. At regionals, Lisa McKinnis took fourth in the shot put with a mark of 35W feet, a personal best. Teresa Thomas placed se- cond in the 400 meter dash with a time of 59.7 seconds. Kim Whitaker placed first in the 3200 meter and 1600 meter run with times of 10.41 and 5.14 minutes respectively. The 400 meter relay team, con- sisting of Jana Chafin, Michelle Simmonds, Virginia 88 girls track Hildebrand, and Teresa Thomas, placed seventh with a time of 5.24 minutes, and the 1600 meter relay team of Jana Chafin, Virginia Hildebrand, Kourtney Kahler, and Teresa Thomas placed fourth with a time of 4.12 minutes. With a first and second place win, Kim and Teresa qualified for the state meet at Memorial Stadium in Austin. At state, Teresa placed sixth in the 400 with a time of 58.8 seconds. Kim took first in the 3200 meter run with a time of 10:43 minutes, and placed second in the 1600 with a time of 5:01 minutes behind Shelia Quigley of Austin Westlake. As a result of the outstan- ding performance of the track team, New Braunfels received tenth place in state competi- tion. The overwhelming success of the track team challenged future runners to keep the Unicorns in the fast lane. Q, , V .lex-Q my fi fg i in K' We W - ft Retracing the steps at the most critical meet.

I Il far so good are the thoughts going Kourtney's mind during the of the 800 meter race. She the competition would be tight. ini- - A Taking her mark, Kourtney concen- trates with confidence in herself and on the race ahead. Her goal is to go to the state meet. Kourtney Kahler realized she had a talent for running in elementary school when she began running after and catching boyfriends. She began running on the track team in seventh grade and has been running competitively ever since. Kourtney commented that track was good to her throughout the years. In her sophomore year, she earned the title of All American for her time of 2 minutes, 10 seconds in the 800 meter race. Kourtney's parents have always supported her endeavors as a runner and stressed the importance of a good education at the same time. Kourtney also ran on the Cross Country team and received third place at the state meet her junior year. In the same year when track season came around, Kourtney was unable to participate because of problems caused from stress fractures in her left hip. As a senior, Kourtney placed sixth at the state cross country meet. She began track season three weeks late because of new orthotics in her shoes which were needed to help correct her stride. Kourtney did not feel she was a sprinter or a two miler, that was why the 800 meter race was the perfect race and distance for her. This trackster not only ran the 800, but relays also. Kourtney's favorite race was the mile relay because she was able to work with other teammates toward a win. As for Kourtney's future, she made plans to attend Baylor University and to concentrate on other sports, like tennis and golf, which she has missed because of her devotion to track. Kourtney had athletic scholarship offers from Rice, the University of Texas, the University of Southern California at Berkley, Texas A8cM, and Arkansas. Kourtney felt there was a strong chance that she would participate in track in college, but her main concern was to get a good education and stay on top. girls' track 89 90-golf STA D UP and Take otice The team made themselves known this season. With a fifth place finish at the Region IV tournament, many schools had to stand up and take notice. Junior J. P. Rector shot an 81 and 79 to earn himself fifth place out of forty five golfers.

The team played 25 games over the season including two tournaments. The squad started off the season with a win over Austin L.B.J. then lost to Round Rock Westwood and Austin Crockett. The team got back on track, winning first place at the Boerne Tourna- ment. The season ended with an 18-7 record.

Their record was good, but not good enough to win district and get into the playoffs," stated Coach Peter Garza. The team had the ability and desire to win, unfortunately, the group could not get everything together at the same time. An l8-7 record held them back from reaching their goal, the playoffs. All hopes of going to the playoffs were lost after the Unicorns were defeated in the rescheduled Fredericksburg game. The game had to be rescheduled due to the umpires not showing up for the second time that season. Coach Garza commented, "Both times the problem was a lack of communication." Many people thought that if the time of the Fredericksburg game had been different, the outcome would have been dif- ferent. Coach Garza said, "The time of the game did not make much difference because our back was against the wall. We had to win!" i SEASON RECORD N.B. QPP, 4 L. B.

Collecting canned foods donated by the various school organizations proves worth while for Student Council members Kay Knippa, Adrian Baker, Linda Wilson, and Laura Tyner as they help deliver food so a needy family can celebrate Thanksgiving. AR student council Involvement Is Commitment, Charit , and Love What was student involve- ment? Some thought the definition of student involve- ment was being a cheerleader or a football player, but for most, involvement was centered around the Student Council. Getting people in- volved was the Student Coun- cil's main concern. The group accomplished this by planning activities for the student body. The annual food drive was held in November. School organizations competed against each other to collect the largest amount of canned foods, Choir won the competi- tion with a total of 495 cans and received fifty dollars. Overall a total of l,l62 cans were collected. By donating money, the Student Council assisted Teen-Connection, a school for students who could not adapt to a normal classroom, and continued sponsoring the Golden Unicorn Pass, which was one of the state's top ten Student Council projects. The Golden Unicorn Pass involved residents of local nursing homes. Student volunteers took the elderly people to spor- ting events, parties, and band concerts. ln return, the elderly people gave a Unicorn made of yarn to the Student Council as a thank you token. The Student Council also organized dances, including the Sadie Hawkins Dance and the Pumpkin Dance. The associate members of the Stu- dent Council spent many hours preparing "pumpkin people" tags for every person in school. To guarantee a dance with the person of their choice, students had to take that pers0n's pumpkin tag off the wall and present it to them at the dance. The dances were held to provide entertainment and to get people involved in activities. By sponsoring these events, the Student Council was able to get not only the student body involved, but the com- munity as well.

The Secret Pal project was designed to give teachers a boost by remembering them on holidays and special occasions with gifts and greetings. The Student Council was in- volved with projects to benefit both the student body and the community. Student Council sponsored a Walk-a-thon for March of Dimes in cooperation with Canyon High School and received close to 31,000 from pledges. Participants walked a circular fifteen mile route from Landa Park. Other projects in- cluded energy conservation, a car pooling project, and seat belt safety which encouraged students to "buckle-up".

Besides working on council- sponsored activities, being on council meant being able to get along with people. It also meant being willing to work on weekends and after school to make projects successful. Junior members: Bottom: Kay Knippa, Tom Duke, J. P.

It Takes Two It took basically two re- quirements to belong to Na- tional Honor Society or Mu Alpha Theta. These re- quirements were a high grade average and leadership skills. Students who had good academic standing were ap- pointed to NHS. Juniors were required to have a minimum of a 92 average, while senior members were required to have at least a 90 average. Besides grade averages, students were also appointed on the basis of leadership skills and approval from faculty members. NHS members received membership certificates during installation ceremonies, which were held in September. Other activities in- cluded the annual kidnap breakfast and the rent-a-kid project. Funds from the rent-a- kid project went toward the National Leadership Con- ference in San Antonio. NHS gave members the chance to expand leadership qualities, serve the community, and build character. 1...,....... Mu Alpha Theta members spent most of their time par- ticipating in math contests and improving math skills. The 22 members were required to have at least a B average and to have completed Algebra I and geometry. The group attended state and national competitions in Austin and New Orleans and also participated in several math meets at Carl Schurz and Seele elementary schools. At these math meets, Mu Alpha Theta members helped elemen- tary students increase their math skills through speed and accuracy tests. The two prerequisites for NHS and Mu Alpha Theta limited the membership to a selected few. For these students, membership was more than just participating in another extra-curricular activi- ty. It was an honor. I may rise, but I refuse to shine! Six o'clock in the morning was a little ear- ly, however NHS had good attendance at the kidnap breakfast which was held at Mr. John Phelan's house.

Daniel Hermes collected materials needed for a chemistry lab. Projects in science classes contributed to his title as state champion. Literary Champions amed at Three Levels of Competition University interscholastic League literary contests are set up for high school students to compete in academic areas. Over 300 students participated in U.I.L. activities. Preparation for contests began as early as September, while intensive study hit its peak after the Christmas holidays. Practice meets were held at various area high schools during February and March. The major meets consisted of district, regionals, and state. The district 'meet was held at New Braunfels High School. First place win- ners were Kelly Ard, prose in- terpretationg Dennis Hartman, calculator, Daniel Hermes, scienceg and Scott Schorn, number sense. Second place winners were Robert Sarkozi, science and number senseg and Linda Wilson, spelling. Third place winners were Patty Villarreal, shorthandg and Amy Starnes, newswriting. Dennis Hartman placed fourth, alter- nate, in ready writing. The regional meet was held at Del Mar College in Corpus Christi, Texas, where first place win- ners were Kelly Ard, prose in- terpretation, and Daniel Hermes, science. Robert Sarkozi followed Hermes with second place in science. The fourth place alternates were Scott Schorn, number sense, and Amy Starnes, newswriting. The state meet was held at the University of Texas in Austin where Daniel Hermes won the state championship in science and placed first in physics. Robert Sarkozi placed first in biology and Kelly Ard placed third in prose interpretation. The participants learned many things from being in U.I.L. contests. As stated by Miss Jeanne Belnap, coordinator and spelling sponsor, "Ability to compete, to deal with suc- cess or failure, the importance of academics, and the ap- preciation of the school and community were things realiz- ed through competition? A large vocabulary helps ready writing contestants. Dennis Hartman brushes up on his word power before the contest. Come on, let's get organized!

L' Q Public Service- Source of Pride Rotary Interact was a com- munity service club which devoted time to different ser- vice projects. The group con- sisted of forty members and met every other Wednesday. Rotary Interact sponsored two orphans through the Christian Children's Fund and worked in food booths at the Comal County Fair and Wurstfest to raise funds for service projects. Six junior members, Laura Tyner, Rhonda Reed, David deLemos, Randy Long, Melani Gallaway, and Marty Espinosa, attended the Rotary Youth Leadership Awards Conference at Lackland Air Force Base. Laura Tyner, Melani Gallaway, and Marty Espinosa were chosen to go to the Rotary International Con- gress in Mexico. Laura Tyner won first place on her theme for the conference. Rotary Foreign Exchange students attended school in New Braunfels for one year. These students were Matti Mantynen and Anssi Hyvonen from Finland and Pierre Mars from Belgium. Each student was chosen by the Rotary In- ternational club of San An- tonio. These students stayed at local Rotary members' homes. Being in Rotary Interact gave members insight as to the responsibilities associated with local civic clubs, such as Rotary International. The group demonstrated respon- sibility to the community by making contributions to pro- jects such as the Christian Childrenis Fund and Teen Connection. After a year of hard work, the club was rewarded with a trip to Port Aransas. Blame it on Mexico!

The pen pal pro- gram enabled members to write to students in New Braunfels' "sister" city, Braunfels, Germany. 'gThe pro- gram was started through a friend of mine who teaches in Braunfels," stated Herr Benno Engel, club sponsor. When students joined the club, they were also asked to submit their preference for a pen pal. Through these letters, each group had the opportunity to learn about the different cultures and lifestyles of Braunfels and New Braunfels. The club also sponsored stu- dent Wurstfest. Besides a free day from school, club members enjoyed such delicacies as fun- nel cakes and sausage-on-a- stick. Then the members gathered in the Wursthalle for the traditional sing-a-long and the chicken dance, which was played about every five minutes. The club earned ap- proximately four hundred dollars on commissions from food and ticket sales at student Wurstfest. Communication and culture played an important part in linking the students in New Braunfels and Braunfels Ger- many.

Through the activities sponsored by the French Club, French culture was spread to the student body. Mardi Gras, PTA Open House, and special parties allowed students to experience a revival of French culture. Different types of French foods such as crepes, quiche, and coq au riz Cchicken and ricej were served at Mardi Gras, a major fundraiser for the club. With creativity, the French Club was able to ex- hibit the styles and costumes of France at the PTA Open House. The display consisting of props and costumes helped them win third prize. To further educate members about French foods and customs, the club held a Christmas party and a end of the year party.

Fundraisers consisted of sausage and cheese sales, Mar- di Gras, a concession stand at UIL contests, and popcorn sales. The total earned by the French Club was S950.00. With these funds, the French Club held two parties, paid for yearbook pages, and attended the Texas French Symposium. Providing social activities that were French oriented was the clubs main objective. With the help of these projects, the French club met their main objective. Anything else?

The students took four tests in grammar, vocabulary, culture, and listening com- prehension, as prerequisites to enter the competition. Over 60 schools and 1,000 students competed in artwork, costume, oral pieces, and poker pari, a computer question and answer contest. In the artwork com- petition, Kristin Wilson placed second. Michele King placed fifth in the modern costume competition. The highlight was first place for the poker pari team which included Karen Edwards, Robby Houde, and Kenda Noah. A total of 15 students com- peted at the French Sym- posium. These students, under the supervision of Mademoiselle Jeanne Belnap, were Nicole Cieslicki, Karen Edwards, Sally De Leon, Kim Grudzinski, Robby Houde, Michele King, Jana Kriewaldt, Melinda Lee, Kenda Noah David Orr, Eddie Robinson Stephanie Smith, Jodi Sparks, Joni Wackwitz, and Kim Wright. Although Kristin Wilson did not attend, her art- work was entered in contest. The French symposium allowed the members to ex- perience new surroundings, to compete with other schools, and to meet new people while increasing their knowledge of French culture. 9 9 Early morning sun brings out the shades.

Food for Funds Successful fund raising pro- jects led to an increase in Spanish club activities. Club members sold M 8t M's and Spanish dishes during lunch groups to earn money. The money earned went toward the funding of a Christmas party and a party and banquet at the end of the year. The International Banquet provided the Spanish club with an opportunity to learn about German and French cultures and foods, as well as, exhibit their own. To break the monotony of the last weeks of school, the German and Spanish clubs played a soccer match which resulted in a tie. After a rematch, the Spanish Come and get it!

Mr. Juan Espinosa, club sponsor, stated, "It was a slow beginning, but towards the end of the year, it seemed as though everyone was working together. l am very proud of the club and glad to be their sponsor." Dedication and Pride The Mighty Unicorn Band played the fight song after each touchdown, entertained during half-time, and brought recogni- tion to our school during con- tests. But what was band really about? It was not just playing the right notes or marching in step. Hours of dedication and practice were required from each member. The band began practice on August twenty-first when the freshmen and new members reported for daily marching drills. The following week the whole band, composed of 213 members, began preparation for the half-time shows. Aside from football games, the marching season was highlighted with the district and regional band contests and U.I.L. competition. In district, the band placed 66 out of 162 M is G 4 .-,hr T K A ,wwe . 'QQ If" chairs. These musicians went on to compete for places in the regional band and placed 38 out of 88 chairs. Then came the big event-U.I.L. marching competition. The Big Blue Band earned a first division rating for their performance, however they did not advance to state. Instead they received alternate which was a disap- pointment after participating in state competition for the past two years. By devoting spare time to practicing and working hard during competition, the band members proved that band was more than just playing music. It was dedication and pride.

In past years, only the silver and blue bands par- ticipated in U.I.L. competition. Due to an increase in numbers, three concert bands were form- ed. The silver band earned a sweepstakes rating and the blue band received a I in con- cert and a II in sightreading. The white band, which focused on the basics of music, earned a III in concert and a II in sightreading. In addition to U.I.L. competition, the band also performed a mid-winter and spring concert for the public. Following U.I.L., the band began rehearsing once again for competition on the trip to Six Flags. They set another goal and began working toward lt.

All three bands participated in the Six Flags Music Festival in Arl- ington, Texas. The silver and blue bands earned first division ratings while the white band received a third division. The blue band earned the title of best second class band in 4A division. After the competition, the band members were able to enjoy the sights and sounds of the amusement park. The spring band banquet, which was sponsored by the band boosters, was held on May 18 at the Civic Center.

Performances Highlight Having the desire to sing and being willing to improve was what it took to join the Concert Chorale or Girls Choir. Each choir performed at concerts and contests. The two choirs sang a range of songs from standard and choral classics to jazz and popular music. The Concert Choir, which consisted of twenty-nine members, per- formed a total of seven con- certs. The Girls Choir con- sisted of twenty-six members and performed six concerts. The Concert Chorale was one of three area choirs chosen to perform at the Southwest Texas State University Choir Festival. Both choirs perform- ed at the University of Texas in San Antonio contest and at area churches and high schools. Getting ready for these con- certs took time. All notes had to be memorized, then came the intense work of polishing each song. Although choir was very busy, the students also had their share of fun. The choirs sold candy bars, candy dishes, candles, and held a spaghetti dinner to raise a total of S3400 dollars. The money went toward senior jackets, sound equipment, parties, and a trip to Six Flags in Arlington, Texas. During the trip to Six Choir Season Flags, the choirs were able to visit the Omni Theater in Fort Worth, Texas. When asked the benefits of being in choir Mr. Stephen Bedford, choir direc- tor, replied, "The hard work is teaching that you must 'pay the price' to do anything well. We are also teaching commitment, dedication, and humanitari- anism. It is a science, it is mathematical, it is a foreign language, it is history, and even physical educationf' Warming up is important.

People who supported teaching as a profession joined FTA. The group sold mums and carnations to raise funds for scholarships for students who wanted to pursue a career in the teaching profession. In the spring, the club held a breakfast at Krause's cafe. Im- mediately following the breakfast, members visited elementary and middle schools to observe classes and worked as teacheris aides for the day. Meeting to share Christian fellowship and to develop positive character traits were purposes of FCA. The club held a Christmas party and two parties following two football games. With the help of dona- tions, the group was able to raise funds to send the members to a FCA summer camp. Through fellowship and working together both clubs were able to expand their horizons spiritually and socially. Responsibility is an important quality learned through FCA.

Biggest Challenge Is Starting From Scratch Individual projects chosen at he beginning of the year were he biggest challenge for tudents because these projects vere directly related to the suc- ess of the entire group. vfembers started from scratch vhether they were raising .nimals or competing on a udging team. They must have earned and recorded all that vas necessary to successfully :omplete their chosen project. In the summer, if the .tudents desired, they could ake their animals to prospect ahows to prepare for the major Ivestock shows. At the Comal County Fair, David Waldrip mad the grand champion steer 1nd his brother, Darrell, won :reed champion with his American cross. Rita Self won breed champion with a British :ross. David Waldrip also had the grand champion heifer. The major livestock shows -- .. - provided much stiffer competition. In San Antonio, David Waldrip placed first with a light weight Limousin steer. Darrell Waldrip won breed champion with a Brahman steer. David placed first with his steer in the light weight Limousin class at the Houston show also. Other winners in Houston included Randy Harris--second place with his light weight Brahman steer, Darrell Waldrip-third place with his heavy weight Brahman steer, and Mark Haecker-third place with his turkey tom. The chapter really did well at the Comal County Youth Fair. Rick Edge had the grand champion market swine. Russell Hansmann received champion and reserve champion on his Berkshire gilts and Tammi Seidel won reserve champion on her Berkshire market swine. Roxane Holz received champion ram, champion and reserve champion ewe, and champion flock of the show on her entries in the sheep division of the show. Mike Sullivan's entry won reserve champion in the heifer show. Rita Self won breed champion with her British cross steer and was also awarded reserve steer showman. The Waldrips' presense was also felt at the Youth Show. Darrell won champion with his American cross steer, and David was awarded champion steer showman and champion heifer of the show. The Herdsmen trophy was won by the chapter members who showed sheep at the show. Overall, the chapter won 40 blue ribbons, 26 red ribbons, and 28 white ribbons. The students who participated on judging teams were also winners. The meats team placed second in district and fifth in area. The poultry team placed third in district. Decisions were made and awards were to be presented to those members who had done the best job of keeping records and raising their projects. Among those receiving awards at the banquet were Chris Munie, horse proficiency, Russell Hansmann, swine, Jason Montague, sheep, David Waldrip, beef cattle, and Mark Haecker, poultry. The Star Greenhand award, outstanding first year member, went to Roxane Holz. Randy Harris won the Star Chapter Farmer award and Darren Schmidt was named the Star Agribusinessman. The competition for these awards was great due to the success at the livestock shows and judging contests. 135 ROTC members: First row: Sonia Barboza, Fay Worthey, David Pointer, Andy Krueger, Michelle Malocha, Louisa Madrigal, Benton Willard, David Moeller, Lt.

Fitness Is Tested Physical fitness is a top priority for the U.S. Marines. Physical fitness for the MC- JROTC cadet meant a healthy body, the capacity for skillful and sustained performance, the ability to recover from exertion rapidly, the desire to complete a designated task, and the con- fidence to face any challenge according to Lieutenant Col- onel Owen Renfro. Exercise was an essential re- quirement for the cadets to achieve physical fitness. They were tested in November and again in March to determine improvements in fitness. Situps, pushups, pullups, flexed arm hang for girls, and a 600 yard run were the events used to measure fitness. Cadets also participated in other activities to supplement their physical fitness program such as team Physical fitness is an important part of ROTC. Richard Roe helps Victor Vargas with his situps during a train- ing session. games of basketball, touch football, and tug-of-war. The men's and women's drill teams competed against other high school MCJROTC units in the state and in a national postal match which was a nationwide fitness competition. For the na- tion wide match, units per- formed fitness tests, kept records of results, and mailed the results to Washington, D.C. for judging during the summer. Lieutenant Colonel Renfro summed up the program by stating, "The program helped the cadets learn that, regardless of what their future occupation might be, they needed to strive to be a person who presented an attractive ap- pearance, radiated confidence, was energetic, and was physically fit." I'OtC Work Before Reward Striving to become the best took hours of hard work. Members of the Marine Corps Junior Reserve Officers Train- ing Corps CMCJROTCJ train- ed before, during, and after school on drills, rifle positions, and learning the history of the United States Marine Corps. Members were actively involv- ed in community services, fund-raising projects, football games, and social services. The cadets learned self- confidence. According to the students, they became leaders not followers. Cadet Bill Caldwell stated, "ROTC is a program that lets you learn more about yourself by way of a challenge and desire to com- pete against others as well as yourself." The cadets held a banquet in honor of the United States Marine Corps birthday. The commemoration date was November 9, 1983. The cadets and their families enjoyed a catered meal and birthday cake for dessert. The oldest and youngest cadets received the first slices. Cadet Sonia Bar- boza played f'Taps,' to con- clude the banquet. ROTC not only gave students a chance to gain responsibility and leadership experience, but also provided services for the community. Be- ing a member of ROTC re- quired lots of hard work, but the rewards were worth it. The rewards gained from ROTC did not have a monetary value. The rewards were the pride and satisfaction received from such activities as being part of the Golden Unicorn Project, taking rest home patients to the fair, and winning awards which brought recognition to the school. Leadership is a quality gained through ROTC. Michelle Matocha instructs Sonia Barboza and Michelle Davila as they practice drills after school.

Col- onel Owen Renfro reads the achievements of Cadets Victor Vargas, Jeff Lepp, David Moeller, and Benton Willard. ,. i i l S ff x 5 Training Earns Reputation for Excellenct The Marine Corps' reputa- tion for excellence came from training which instilled in each new recruit such qualities as maturity, discipline, self- reliance, decisiveness, pride, and devotion to duty. These in- dividual traits were molded in- to a collective spirit known by Marines as Esprit de Corps. That quality which enabled men to perform feats that under ordinary circumstances might be considered impossible. Recognizing these qualities as valuable in all aspects of life, the Marine Corps established the Junior Reserve Officers Training Corps CJROTCD to offer the positive aspects of Marine Corps training to young men and women. Students in MCJROTC are offered courses in Marine Corps history, leadership, marksmanship, map reading, first aid, drill and ceremonies, and various other aspects of the Marine Corps. Cadets become more mature as they discipline themselves to take orders from those who are higher in rank than they. Outstanding cadets were rewarded with a chance to par- ticipate in the annual orienta- tion visit to a Marine Corps base, Camp Pendleton in California. The only money cadets were required to take was for admission tickets, souvenirs, and meals bought at Disneyland. The Marine Corps paid for round-trip plane tickets, food, and lodging. Dur- ing the one week trip, cadets lived on the Marine base at Camp Pendleton. They were instructed on such exercises as firing of the M-16, combat town, infiltration courses, and night firing exercises. After three and a half days of train- ing, the cadets enjoyed a half a day at the beach and a full day at Disneyland. N The weekend after their return trip from California, tl MCJROTC held its annu awards banquet. The awarl banquet was held to hon those cadets who 'performu above and beyond the call duty. School board memb and the heads of local ci organizations, such as t V.F.W., presented the awar which were in the form of ri bons and medals. The highligl of the ceremony was the pr motion of the future comma' ding officer. Cadet Secor Lieutenant Michelle Matocl was promoted to Captain. S will be the second female co pany commander the unit ht. had. The unit worked hard a many hours of training we put in by the cadets. The. hours paid off in the long r when it came to going ' California, to winning awar in competition, and to receivi individual recognition at tl awards banquet. My , cz 5 .

Kelly, Commandant of the Marine Corps, who was also present for the ceremonies. Buried alive! Bert Stratemann's "friends," cadets Vance Bingham, Bill Caldwell, John Mendez, Darrell Reyes. and Donald Coronado bury him in the sand on the beach in California. Flying to California is very exciting for cadets Cynthia Arrellano and Albert Gonzales. Personal pride and satisfaction can be claimed by Michelle Matocha after be- ing named Company Commander at the annual awards banquet. l'Il0l10Cel'2lS Hours of Hard Work Flawless performances re- quired two to three hours of daily practice on routines. Most of the Monoceras ex- perienced excessive ner- vousness before the weekly tryouts, which determined who could perform at half time at the Friday night game. The girls said that after per- forming at the game they knew whether or not they had provid- ed a good performance by the applause from the audience. The officers and sponsor, Mrs. Patsy Vann, chose the music and routines for each game. "The girls all work hard, and I like that because it shows me how determined they are to performf' said Mrs. Vann. Those who made the drill team accepted the responsibili- ty to help build spirit, to pro- vide entertainment, and to represent the school in a win- ning tradition. The group com- peted in the National Drill Team Competition and the of- ficers won Sweepstakes in Jazz, high kick, and character routines. The officers dressed as clowns for the character routine and danced to "The Sound of Music." The team, as a whole, received two first- place awards in high kick and character routine. The character routine was a dance to polka music and the girls were dressed in German costumes. A clinic was held for girls who were interested in Monocera tryouts. The team helped the prospective members with warm-ups and routines to help them prepare for a good performance at the tryouts. Early morning practices with the band help Monocera members, Melody Craig and Gillian Cox, perfect the routine to "Mr, Touchdown" perform- ed with miniature footballs. , . ,ag , , Q , ' Vg J L .. .,. , ,typ A Monocera members: First row, bottom: Barbara May-Lieutenant Colonel, Kelly Nicholson-Captain, Beth Schlameus-Colonel, Melanie Kriewaldt-Captain, Kay Knippa- Lieutenant Colonel, Tina Flowers- Captain, and Tracy Franz- Captain.

Cheerleaders Kim Timmermann, Kelly Ard, Michelle Jaramillo, and Libby Partida perform a dance routine for the student body. A cheerleader's job involves more than just cheering. The varsity cheerleaders enter- tain the student body by performing a dance skit as the "Pillow People" at the Gonzales pep rally. I- W M., A Af-li 'ie sw cheerleaders U' Dreams Are Real Dreams of being a cheerleader floated around in the heads of almost every girl. For a few, this dream became a reality. However, cheerleading was not all fun and games, not just football season and limelight. The responsibilities of cheerleading included leadership abilities, a minimum overall C average, self- motivation, and of course, the skill to make it through the try-outs. After making the squad, the cheerleaders began to decide on the uniforms and equip- ment, such as pom-poms, megaphones, and shoes. The total expenditure came to about 5600. During the sum- mer, the girls attended a camp at Southwest Texas State University in San Marcos. They learned new cheers and chants from professional cheerleaders. For the first time in four years, the cheerleaders received a yellow ribbon, which qualified them to compete in the championships at the end ofthe week. After camp, the squad con- tinued practicing for football season and planning spirit ac- tivities. Certain days were set aside for wearing such items as outrageous hats, buttons, or fif- ties attire to show support for the Unicorns. A Mr. Irresisti- ble contest was also added to the agenda. This contest gave the guys a chance to test their charm. Girls were given "hush" cards, which prohibited talking to boys. The guys had to persuade the girls to talk to them. lf this feat was ac- complished, the boy received a "hush" card from the girl who gave in. Brett Bingham won the title with 152 "hush', cards. In addition to boosting spirit at school events, the squad devoted their efforts toward the community as well. The cheerleaders decorated store windows to promote Unicorn spirit. The squad also held clinics to teach future cheerleaders basic skills and made decorations for the sports banquets. Through their spirit and motivation, the cheerleaders not only achieved their personal dreams, but they also boosted the spirit of the student body and community. Welcome to Bobcat Stadium!

Members began working on new cheers and pom-pom routines created by Melissa Gonzales, Presidentg Mrs. Sally Kingsbury, cheerleader sponsorg and Miss Karen Dittlinger who has been the club sponsor for three years. Miss Dittlinger stated that early preparations led to a successful year. The group was active on and off the football field preparing and performing new cheers and routines. The routines were a highlight for the squad because this was the first year members performed a half time routine. Off the field, members par- ticipated in an aerobics class to keep in shape. The 46 girls had certain obligations to maintain membership. Memorizing the fight song, the alma mater, and organizational rules and regulations were included in these responsibilities. With each game and perfor- mance, the squad grew more spirited and was able to build up excitement throughout the student body. Insight on group activities is available at PTA Open House.

Having taken an art class was not a prerequisite. However, students needed to have the desire to learn. In class, students worked on pro- jects such as designing posters, jackets for record albums, and book covers, and then applied air-brushing, silk-screening, and other techniques to these projects. Artwork was not limited to class assignments. Students designed the football run- throughs, created decorations for the Queen of Hearts dance, and designed posters for school activities.

Both FBLA and Art Club discovered this by participating in contests. Art Club entered a total of seven contests including the Comal County Fair, Youth Show, and P.T.A. Cultural Arts. The total awards received were two reserve champions, 23 first places, 20 second places, 22 third places, two fourth places, and four honorable mentions. Besides participating in competitions, the club raised funds by silk- screening t-shirts for clubs and activities. The funds were spent on supplies for the art depart- ment and a trip to the San An- tonio Art Museum. Competition also played a vital role in activities for the Future Business Leaders of America. Members received awards in shorthand, accoun- ting, and endowment funds at district, state, and national conferences. Outside of com- petition, FBLA sold Austrian crystal and M 8a M's as fund- raisers. The money went toward community projects and a scholarship fund. The club awarded the 3300.00 scholarship to Mary Holick to pursue a career in business management. FBLA and Art Club strived to do well in contests, to reach goals, and to enjoy working together. Each group had ac- complishments which will be a challenge to others. Field trips do have benefits.

It all started with the area Career Development Conference held in Austin. Nine members qualified to compete at state where DECA earned eight awards. At state, Weston Pacharzina received first place in Entrepreneurship Written Event, while Adam Schwab and Scott Blake placed in Restaurant Marketing. These three students advanced to national competition in Kan- sas City, Missouri where Weston won first place. Aside from competition, DECA participated in group activities such as an officer breakfast at Krause's cafe, a Christmas dinner at Country Corner, and a Halloween costume party. DECA was closely related to the marketing and distribution class and students were en- couraged to join the club. The students learned about business through labs and computer classes. Students also made plans for club projects and at- tended field trips to Natural Bridge Caverns and the heritage exhibit during Wurstfest. Students benefited in many ways from DECA. The members gained leadership skills through committee and officer training. The sponsors also located student training stations in the community where students worked in distribution jobs. By applying the experiences gained through DECA ac- tivities, jobs, and competition, the students prepared themselves for the business world and reaped rewards. Mayor makes proclamation. Mayor O. A.

The club held a scheduled meeting once a month and special meetings when called by president, Cheryl Dees. V.O.E. helped sponsor the Texas Special Olympics and gave an Easter egg hunt for the students at Lamar School. An open house was held for freshmen and sophomores to introduce them to the program. An employer-employee recep- tion, held at the Chamber of Commerce Honors Hall, was given to honor employers. The club also held a Halloween and a Christmas party during the year. Members participated in area.and state meetings. The area meeting was held in San Antonio at Clarke High School. The state meeting was held in Dallas at the Hilton Hotel. Fundraisers consisted of compiling and selling a school directory, selling links to build a spirit chain, and the sale of two Easter bunnies. The money went toward the publication of the directory, scrapbook materials, socials, the employer-employee reception, and meals at contest. By being in V.O.E., members were able to learn leadership skills and to reach individual goals. Looks like fun!

Learning Is Copin Vocational Opportunities Club of Texas QVOCTJ gave students a chance to train in in- teresting work areas. Students had the opportunity to attend school and to work in the real world of business which helped them in learning how to make it on their own. Guest speakers talked to the group about various types of careers. Demonstrations on health care, clothing, and of- fice techniques were presented to students. Using resource books, studying independently, and learning to prepare income tax forms were also major parts of this program. During January, students began preparing for contests and job interviews. Along with this, members worked on projects, the chapter display, and the scrapbook. According to Gloria Kolacek, sponsor, the name of the book was "Fantastic,' as it reflected all the fantastic work the students had accomplished. Fundraisers included "Can- dy By Cupidl' on Valentines Day. The candy was handed out by cupids, Robert Goodwin and Ricky Yanas. The most popular fundraiser was the Unicorn calendar which was produced with the help of VICA students. Students could have their birthdays printed on Students bring home the gold. However, it was from area contest and not the Olympics. VOCT members Troy Musser, Gerard Aguirre, Robert Good- win, Monica Haynes, Ervey Figueroa, Isabel Solis, Sammie Garica, and Joanne Gomez were named the first place club business procedure team and the District 5 representative to the state contest.

These fundraisers not only pro- vided money, but also enticed the students to be more involv- ed in the school as well. As a part of being involved in community activities, several students dressed as Santa Claus for the children at the Comal Head Start Day Care Center at Christmas. This was the first time the club members had the responsibility of caring for a child. They also brought the children to the high school for a "show and tell" program. This enabled the youngsters to see what high school was like. Social activities were impor- tant to the club. The group hosted a breakfast at the Hill Country Inn to honor and to become acquainted with school officials. To celebrate Christmas, the club went to the Fiesta Dinner Playhouse where they met Patrick Wayne, a per- former at the dinner theater. At the end of the year, a ban- quet was held at Goerke's Country Tavern to recognize employers for their support and students receiving awards. The club offered members experience in the job field and lessons on etiquette. On-the-job training and social skills were both needed for survival in the real world. I S ctivities Keep Students Busy ctivities started with a kfast at the Hill Country where students made cam- n speeches for officer elec- s.

In December, the club hosted a Christmas party at a Head Start children center. Tim Marcaurele dressed as Santa Claus and handed each child a gift from their "adopted" brothers and sisters. Members spent the morning telling stories and teaching the strategies of touch football. The club attended the Fiesta Dinner Playhouse production of 'tMy Three Angels," star- ring Patrick Wayne, for the Christmas party. Area competition was held at Churchill High School in San Antonio.

Javier Perez, Daniel Pepin, and Andy Krueger had exhibits which qualified for state. The state competition was held in Houston in the Astrodome complex. Gerald placed third in dry wall application. Javier and Andy received honorable mention for their exhibits. To show their appreciation to the 26 employers who agreed to hire and train students, members hosted an apprecia- tion banquet at Goerke's Coun- try Tavern in April. Javier Perez was selected outstanding student of the year and Craig Hollmig, of Hollmig Engineer- ing, was recognized as outstan- ding employer of the year. Students rounded out the year with a picnic which featured fajitas, hamburgers, and barbequed rabbit fcourtesy of a member who started his own rabbit businessj. Students stayed busy work- ing in jobs which would train them for technical, industrial, or health occupations. They combined academic study with on-the-job training to receive a head start in the career field of their choice. What's cooking?

ZR. horn and hoof A Time and Determination Pa Off Hours of spare time and lots of determination went into the publication of the school newspaper. The staff of fifteen members was led by Barbara Urdiales, editor, and Carole Deltz, co-editor. Once a month, the staff met on Saturday to put the finishing touches on the layouts. Class time and occa- sionally extra hours were spent catching up on late deadlines. After everything was finished, the material was pasted on a layout board and sent to the printer as camera-ready copy. The papers were sold for 25 cents a copy. The staff earned money through sales of papers and advertisements. Adver- tisements were sold for two dollars per column inch. All advertisements were designed by the staff members. This money went toward the publishing of the paper, and entry fees for journalism contests. In district U.I.L. competi- tion, Amy Starnes placed third in news writing and advanced to regionals in Corpus Christi. At I.L.P.C. the paper was given the Award of Distinguished Merit. The staff photographers received two se- cond place awards and one first place award at I.L.P.C. Jesse Gonzalez won second place in sports photos and took third place in the picture page event. Tad Gilbreath placed second with his feature photo entry. v" awe' it 4, i - gffvxg' wif at V M x 'Q .. if ' M., it -'W' nwefza W pf VVVV . .. :in V . ,,,. fl A. xt. The Piercing Eye!

Michelle Stigall sells papers and extra pictures to Chris Lacy and Carrie Lynn Cohen during lunch. The staff published eight editions of the paper. In order to achieve this, every member dedicated one Saturday a month and stayed after school when necessary to work on the upcoming paper. Dedication was the key that made this a successful year. As stated by Mrs. Debra Motycka, "The staff has worked extremely hard this year to upgrade the status of the newspaper. Without their dedication, hard work, and super attitude, I know our first division rating would have been impossible." Editors are busy people!

Staff Wins Awards and Makes the News Computers were everywhere, even in the staff room. The staff began using Apple Ile computers to type copy and each member received an in- dividualized disk to save copy for future reference. Work on the 1984 UNICORN began in early August when the staff attended a week-long yearbook camp in San Angelo, Texas. Staff members learned the basics of layout, design, and copywriting and chose the book's theme, "In The News ...". After camp, the staff was faced with the task of helping with school photos and issuing identifica- tion cards. While other students were settling into school routines, the staff was busy handing out yearbooks from the previous year and underclassmen pic- tures. Then the sales pitch began. After a slide show presentation, orders were taken for the new book. In December, page deadlines began to take toll. Staff members were expected to finish about 50 pages each month to send to the publishing plant. The staff worked during class and even attended night sessions to work on pages. After months of work, the book was completed and a sigh of relief was heard throughout the staff room. Awards won for the previous year's book put staff members in the news. The 1983 UNICORN received a first place rating from Columbia Scholastic Press Association at Columbia University in New York. Judged in such areas as theme development, layout, copy, coverage, anld photography, the book earned 922 points out of a possible 1000. The 1983 UNICORN also received an award of Distinguished Merit at the University Interscholastic League Press Conference. Making headlines was not just associated with copywriting. By winning awards and putting effort into creating the yearbook, the staff literally made the news.

It strikes year round. This dreaded disease only strikes seniors, it's called "SENIORITIS"! Senioritis was a common disease which struck most 'seniors after they had been ac- cepted to the college of their choice. The first symptom was evident when the average, go- getter senior began to "forget" his homework a few times and then "forgot" to study for "small" quizzes. These minor things led to more major assignments and tests that were neglected. Those contracting the disease acquired new phrases that they began to use frequently. For example, "BLOW IT OFF',, "WHO ' CARES", and "GO TO HELL WORLD I'M A SENIOR? Grade point averages began to fall, but the infected senior was sure to maintain the minimum grades in order to stay in the top quarter of the class to meet college entrance requirements. By the end of the year, the ill senior was only doing the minimum required work to pass his classes and to finally graduate. Such is the life of a senior with senioritis, the only known cure for these 309 un- fortunate souls was the diploma. Senioritis struck nine out of ten seniors. No high school was safe from this terri- ble sickness. What do you think? Holly Hill and Gina Zimmermann decide which posters to hang in the main hall during the hall decorating contest.

Senior Kourtney Kahler par- Qicipated in the modern pen- :athlon during the summer at Fort Sam Houston in San An- zonio. Kourtney was to be part if the program because of her swimming and running abilities. The five events in- :luded were running, swim- ming, jumping Con horsebackj, shooting 22 caliber guns, and Fencing which she enjoyed the most. The camp lasted one month and each of the par- ticipants trained every day from 6:00 in the morning until 4:30 in the afternoon. The rest of the day they worked on in- dividual skills. At the end of the pentathlon, Kahler stated "I really got a taste of each sport, and what they involve." According to Kourtney, this experience added to the possibilities for her receiving a scholarship to be able to attend college. The pentathlon con- tinues year roundg however, Kahler could not go on with her training and continue her high school studies. On guard! Kourtney Kahler diligently practices her fencing skills.

Membership Doubles People who became heavily involved in activities usually felt that they just simply could not join another club or organization. However, membership in the Bookettes did not require too much ex- tra time as the group mainly provided extra help in the library. Four meetings and one dollar annual dues were the major requirements for members. They planned two fund-raising projects, a book sale and a pencil vending machine, and two group ac- tivities, a Christmas party and an end-of-the-year party. All library science students 'A were required to join Booket- tes. Membership doubled from the previous year. There were 14 members. "If we con- tinue to grow, we might become a club whose name is known such as the band or the pep squad," commented Mrs. Dolores Spicer-sponsor. vm L' I I Julie Cl0IItS-Spanish Club, Campus Life, Tennis.

Golden Unicorn, TNT. l' l Home Awa From Home Becomes Home At the beginning of his senior year, Kevin Brown transferred to New Braunfels from Uvalde to play tennis in the Competitive Edge program at Newk's Tennis Ranch. After a taste of the tennis program, Kevin's parents moved to New Braunfels to work as pro's at Newk's and Kevin continued with his tennis. The season was I a success for Kevin. First, he -von district, he competed at egionals, and he advanced to the state tournament in Austin. T For the second time, - nowever, Bastrop's Tim Juarez lefeated N.Bfs top player. In a pro set earlier in the season, ' Juarez defeated Kevin 8-2. This time the final score was 6-2, 6-1 in an hour-long match to win the semi-finals at the .I boy's state tournament. Three factors that contributed to Kevin's loss were: he couldn't get his shots past Juarez's net game, he couldn't get his first serve in consistently, and he couldn't win the close games. Brown stated, "I'd get points, but I couldn't win games? The loss in the semi-finals brought Kevin's season to a close with an impressive 38-2 record. Uvalde's loss was N.Bfs gain when Kevin Brown became a part of the tennis team. Kevin and his parents were quickly accepted into the community and New Braunfels became their home instead of a home away from home. And it's up . . . , Senior Kevin Brown tosses the ball high to get a good serve during a match at the high school courts. . ..

At the close of the year, every senior was out every night. They always managed to find something to do. Throughout the year there were breakfasts, brunches, Mother-daughter banquets, and of course, just plain old parties. Many of these were planned, but there were those that were spur of the moment. If someone said the word party, everyone knew there had to be to Have Fun a party somewhere. Whether it was at the island, at someone's house fsometimes parents were out of townJ, or just cruising around town in the car, seniors were out and about. Looking for a good time did not come hard for these seniors because it seemed that fun always followed this group. The night life of a senior- was exciting, fun, and quite busy. Party "People"? Susan Scheffel, alias Susie cavewoman, and Adrian Baker, alias Elvira, are ready to party with fellow seniors at a costume party on Halloween. .. wtf Jeff lkpp-N HS, MCJROTC Qdrill team-lst in staieijr.. 2nd in siatcfsr., lst Chl'iSt8 Mlfkins-Choir tpres.4fr., V-pres.-soph.J, VOE.

That is the question a lot of eniors had to ask themselves s the year came to a close. Iany knew what was in store Jr them, however, many thers could not make up their tinds. For some, graduation 'as a step closer to in- iependence and a way of show- ig their parents they were nature enough to face the real" world. For others graduating was just an escape to be rid of school for good. It was neat to talk to your friends and to find out where they were going to school or if they were getting a job or even getting married upon graduation. Once this dreaded question had a answer, seniors were able to sit back and say, "I did it and I did it for me!" Hard work pays off.

One itudent from each school in fexas was nominated for this .cholarship. Then from these ftirdents, quarter finalists were .:hosen. The SAT was given to determine selections for semi- Linalist. Sarkozi's score of 1360 entitled him to one of the 50 positions of semi-finalist. Of those 50, 25 were chosen as finalists. Those 25 were then given IQ tests and personal in- terviews for the scholarship. Sarkozi's scholarship may be used at any Texas school, but he must maintain a B average and take at least 15 hours per semester. Sarkozi decided to attend Rice University in Houston in the fall. Along with the Piper scholarship, Sarkozi received a four year National Merit Scholarship worth 58,000.00 and a tuition grant from Rice. Robert set a doc- torate from Rice in mathematics as a future goal. A job well done. Robert Sarkozi steps up to receive the Minnie Stevens Piper Scholarship at the senior awards banquet.

In- volvement was the key word. Everything revolved around the future. Studying was a must. Day after day, juniors heard, "Honey, I know you're trying, but you have to keep your grades if you plan on attending college!" BOOM, just when you thought you were on the road to success, there came the P.S.A.T., A.C.T., and the beloved S.A.T. Filling out ap- plications was hard enough, much less taking the test which was seemingly made for a genius. On weekends, all juniors wanted was something fun and exciting to do on those long awaited nights. The student council promoted dances that served as safe and inexpensive Being a Junior forms of entertainment. A ma- jor part of the junior year was spent planning and attending the annual Junior-Senior Prom. Class functions and private parties were also high ranking events for the year. Keeping active definitely seemed to be a fairly popular pastime for all 285 juniors. Besides all of those parties and wild weekends, participation in sports events was not unusual. Academically and socially, juniors climbed another rung toward the long awaited senior year.

The benefits of attending the academy outnumbered tl' drawbacks by far for many c the participants.

Not enough time to take all the courses required was a common complaint heard on campus. As an answer to the students' concerns, cor- respondence classes were of- fered. Students participated in the correspondence pro- gram in order to be able to take all the courses that were required for graduation and still have room for their elec- tives, too. Students applied for the courses through the counselors' office. The University of Texas offered high school students courses such as health, home economics, math, science, social studies, foreign languages, and even English. The minimum tuition to enroll in one of these courses was S47.25. Students taking a one semester course were allowed up to twelve months to complete the ten lessons to them through the Then, the counselors sent mail. gave a final exam to the students as the final require- ment of the course. Eleven students finished classes through the mail from the University of Texas. Carolyn Fey took Latin from the University of Nebraska since it was not offered by the University of Texas or as part of the regular high school cur- riculum. She expressed her opinion of correspondence classes well by saying, "Finishing a class that was important to my academic career by correspondence was an independent achievement that was very rewarding? Although only two credits were allowed through cor- respondence classes, students used these classes to add flex- ibility when scheduling classes during the regular school year. Shopping for correspondence classes, Carolyn Fey and Miss Ann Mahon look through a catalog of classes of- fered by the University of Texas. We 6 VH..

A .' r f' ' Adding Life to Campus Fun and friendship evolved from Campus Life meetings. Mr. Eric Landrum, the group's sponsor and leader planned weekly meetings in which a group of 35-45 students par- ticipated in wild and crazy games and worthwhile discus- sion. The group also offered Bi- ble studies once a week for young Christians in which they worked together to give each other better perspectives on everyday and spiritual lives. Tom Duke expressed it well by saying, "Campus Life taught us to have fun and build stronger friendships. It broke the monotony of school life and gave us something to look for- ward to during the week." Talking it over! Cindy Caddell and Mr. Landrum discuss plans for going to South Padre Island.

Be- ing sophomores brought new op- portunities and responsibilities. The students took part in extra- curricular activities, such as FTA, OEA, Rotary Interact, French club, Spanish club, and German club. Some sophomores played varsity sports and others performed with ,Monoceras Membership in school organiza- tions meant participating in group activities and sharing responsibilities with other members. Sophomores took the National Educational Development tests which evaluated academic skills in English, word and math usage, natural science, and Proud parents, proud daughter, Jana Chafin and her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Leo Chalin, are introduced during parents' night ceremonies at the Gon- zales basketball game. The Four Puppeteers! Elizabeth Rodriguez, Jeanne Kelley, Nancy Kadlecek, and Michele Morris put on a puppet show about Julius Caesar for an English class project. 188 sophomores social studies readings. A test of learning ability was also given. Students who received awards for superior academic perfor- mance were Kristi Blake, Charles Ellis, Paige Schlender, Brigette Suhr, and Kristin Wilson. Sophomores pitched in and helped support class projects. During Queen of Hearts, the class earned 52416.50 dollars. The 311 students in the class were glad that they had the op- portunity to become more in- volved in high school activities. Free car wash, donations accepted! Gary Poeck-head class sponsor, Deb- bie Smith, and Lorena Gonzalez pitch in to help earn a total of 5876.11 dollars on this Queen of Hearts project. 6 is V A an W , I W'T"5?i? l" 5 rx , 4, ' A f' 5 fl' tiny -. sd-fL'zr:a my 1 16 s- ,K if Sophomore officers are Sonia Munoz, Vice-Presidentg Brigitte Suhr, Secretaryg Debbie Smith, President: and Georgie Tamayo, Treasurer.

Instead of tubing down the river or catching some rays, students spent five weeks tak- ing driveris education, which was necessary to obtain a driveris license by age 16 in the state of Texas. The 200 students who at- tended the classes paid 5145.00 dollars for summer instruction. Daily sessions available to students were 7:30 to 9:30 a.m., 9:30 to 11:30 a.m., and 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. Students had to at- tend one of the sessions five days a week for five weeks. A total of 52 hours of driver's education was required. Classroom instruction, learning rules and regulations and work- ing with the simulator for nine hours to develop proper driving habits, was a requirement of The student drivers spent twelve hours in a car. Four of the hours were spent driving and eight hours were spent in the back seat observing and learning from other drivers' ex- periences. The cars used in the driving portion were obtained from Krueger Chevrolet, Bock Motor Company, and Becker Motor Company. Students found that the lux- ury of having a driver's license was worth sacrificing summer fun and 52 hours of their time. Having the car keys was an ad- vantage. Students could now run errands for their parents and have the fun of cruising around town at the same time. Also, the hassle of trying to find rides to school and other activities was eliminated.

The first question most students asked was, "Who will I go out with?" Some chose older individuals, and others preferred younger dates. Still others were satisfied with a companion of the same age and grade. The second problem was, "Will my parents let me go?" Next came the unavoidable "Where will we go?" Sometimes couples splurged and drove into San Antonio to dine and see a movie. Finances were also a point to consider. The cost of a movie and dinner was approximately S40.00, not to mention the gas necessary to go to and from the chosen entertainment. Because of this many students stayed in town for entertainment. School dances attracted couples, especially Queen of Hearts and the Prom. All sports events seemed to be a popular activity for dates. Another most important question was, "When will we go?', Saturday nights were the biggest date nights, but many Friday nights were spent on dates as well. Occasionally on school nights, a concert, a ban- quet, or just a free night with no homework would leave time for a night out. Everyone eagerly awaited the weekends. However, dating was definitely a privilege which was anticipated by students for years. Finally when that special person and Mom or Dad said "Yes", it was reality. Burying the hatchet after a trying week of class competition for Queen of Hearts, Bill Fox, a junior, decides to let bygones be bygones and take Stephanie Hanover, a sophomore, to the corona- tion and dance. s . .x . ,1.., tp , A Leif Q J -Sr , - P tv l W is S .......r 3 . i . ..-ir Ei ' L . a 'v 1 t , sk 'Cf ,-:si L. .. ., .Hg S .1 as-x .. .

It may have been the time we went out to lunch together at Pat's Place and were almost late to afternoon classes or the time we both were sent to detention hall for talking too much in Mrs. Kraft's geometry class. We eventually found a sym- pathetic ear as we discussed how mad Mr. Tucker made us during marching season or how hurt we were when boyfriends ditched us for a Monocera who was a little bit prettier. We even made sure to see each other after every class and we always knew when the other had a track meet or a band con- cert. It really was tough when you were asked out on a date with the guy I liked. He even took you to see "Footloose" which you knew I was dying to see and afterwards, he took you to my favorite place- Pantera's. We patched it up over a sun- dae at Polar Bearis and found that sometimes quarrels and disagreements brought us even closer. During spring break when your mother wouldn't let you go to the coast and I stayed home, only then did we realize how much our friendship meant. There was an exact mo- ment when friendship was formed and the word "friend" became a real feeling instead of a word that cannot be defined. And when that moment occur- red, the realization of our friendship became an impor- tant feeling in our lives. You can always count on a friend to have the correct change.

High School wp' Becomes a Realit . More privileges were available to the 327 freshmen students in high school than in middle school. New to the freshmen were the commissary and cold drink machines, which were available for a quick snack during lunch or just to take away the frustrations of a hard day's work. For the first time, the freshmen elected class officers. Students chose a president, vice-president, secretary, and treasurer to represent their class. These of- ficers were in charge of making the final decision on the three money making projects for Queen of Hearts. The projects selected were a raffle, a fishwalk, and food sales. Another task was choosing the class t-shirt design. High school offered a wider ..,v' Extra-curricular activities are new to freshmen. Rosa Benitez perfects her routine for pep squad. selection of elective classes to students. This provided more flexibility in scheduling classes. Freshmen were allowed two electives along with four re- quired courses. Having one bell schedule for the week was a relief. Students no longer need- ed to worry about a rotating schedule as in middle school. The two biggest honors for the freshmen were winning Queen of Hearts and raising more money than any other class in the history of the school. The years of elementary and middle school were history and a firm foundation was set. High school was finally a reality. Whats going on? Queen of Hearts pro- ved to be a new experience.

After finding their lockers and fiddl- ing with the combination locks, freshmen heard the first bell signifying school would soon begin. Next came the hassle of finding the correct classroom. Asking older students did not seem to help any since they usally laughed and sent the "new" students in the wrong direction. Once freshmen were finally in class, the first day blues continued. Filling out in- dex cards and listening to teachers attempt to pronounce names correctly only added to the tension. Most freshmen spent the beginning of fourth class, the almost two hour block of time which included lunch and enrichment, trying to figure out when and where they should eat. At the end of the day, a great deal had been learned about high school and freshmen were beginning to relax. They knew that the next day would be better-how could it get any worse!? English homework? Tennis practice? These thoughts run through Jeanne Tousley's mind as she decides what ac- tivity takes top priority. Freshman orientation made students aware of ac- tivities available. -...bw if ""+.....' -,MN .X M-'fx Marcie Acevedo Jerry Acker Roxahne Adams Albert Aguilar Amparo Aguirre Melissa Aguirre Rudy Aguirre Vicki Aguirre Chris Allen Leticia Altamirano Joey Alvarado Robert Alvarez Doug Anderson David Anton Pedro Ayala Robert Bacon Julian Badillo Deanna Bading Roxanne Barganier Tonya Bearden Leigh Anne Beath Leslie Beck Eddie Behrendt Kevin Bell Gerardo Benavides Melinda Benavides Rosa Benitez Eric Berquist Vance Bingham Glenn Bishop Trent Boarnet Susan Boasi Suzanne Bock Duane Boenig Samuel Bowen Lisa Brehm Darren Brinkkoeter Rodney Brooks Paul Brotze Becky Butcher 198 freshmen . f mi A. . thy" .13 .1 1 - I Q be - in "f 1 ,al W N Q , i ff T e tif.

The biggest reward was to successfully use all her time and talent in a combination for work, school, and social life. Melissa's day consisted of courses in speech, honors English, biology, band, and geometry. Balancing school and extra-curricular activities was difficult, but she still main- tained an A average overall. After school Melissa devoted five hours a week to teaching dance classes at New Braunfels Dance Studio under the super- vision of Joan Slocum. She taught a combination of acrobatics, ballet, jazz, and when she was three. She receiv- ed instruction from Joan Slocum and because of her ability as a dancer, she became an instructor herself. Melissa also took oboe lessons once a week to help improve her per- formance in band. She was an active member of the safety, publicity, and public relations committees on student council. Upon graduation, Melissa's plans are indefinite, however, she would like to study pediatrics at the University of Texas in Austin. Practice and skill are required when teaching youngsters the art of acrobatics. Melissa Garza assists Mar- ci Hurdlebrink in executing a forward tap.

Rosemary was also a diligent member of the volleyball team. Rosemary found that just as she was enjoying being an upper classmen in middle school, the year was over and she "dropped" to the lowest rung on the high school ladder. However, Rosemary Lacy proved that determination and participation can ease the blow of being a freshman.

Qui, freshmen 203 Q w Where's the Beef ? State Board Beefs Up Graduation Requirements Changes in education were proposed by the governor's select committee on education fheaded by H. Ross Perotj and by the legislature through House Bill 246. The school board and ad- ministration have the respon- sibility to make sure that all state requirements are enforc- ed in the district. The Perot committee made recommenda- tions for restricting the number of days students can be absent for school activities, such as athletics, band, and Future Farmers of America. This com- mittee also proposed that all extra curricular activities meet after school and that the state board of education be abolish- ed. Curriculum changes were mandated by the State Board of Education. The most significant changes due to House Bill 246 involved requirements for the high school diploma. The number of required credits was changed to 21 for 1984-85 and 22 for the 1985-86 school year. There were two plans proposed that the students could choose from. The advanced graduation plan required a third year of science, two years of a foreign language, one year of fine arts, and one year of computer science. This plan also required that the three units of math be at or above the Algebra I level. This plan was designed for students planning to go to col- lege to prepare for a math or science related career. The se- cond plan that a student could choose was the regular plan 204-administration-faculty-staff designed for students who wished to take more electives, however, by choosing wisely, students could still meet col- lege entrance requirements. Since the local district already required four units of English and three units of history and government, the only real changes were in the math and science areas. In a meeting with prospec- tive ninth grade students, Vice Principal John Phelan said that students would have no time to waste time. Mr. Phelan was emphasizing that students and their parents would have to plan carefully when selecting electives. The school board ap- proved "zero houru course of- ferings based on demand. With the approval of these classes, the high school was able to of- fer students an additional hour for electives which could not be fit in during the regular school day. The impact of the changes on the local district was not as great as it was on other smaller districts. The local district was pretty well on-target with the new "beefed up', requirements. And if I might add . . . Will Davis ad- dresses the 18th annual Texas Legislative Conference. Legislators at the conference discussed the proposed changes in education. What would we do without them? Thanks to the school board members, Gladys Bartling, Susan Car- michael-student rep., Margy Waldrip--president, Rudy Reimer, Don Bedford, Gene Scott-secretary, Bob Self-vice president, and Garland Lloyd-treasurer, the school district meets state requirements. The district runs smoothly thanks I the careful planning of Bud--f Manager Lonnie Curtis, Su dent Charles Bradbe- Assistant-Superintendent . Smith. if 5 .af La-1 'if , l What's good Cieslicki?

Valuable experience was gain- ed by the student teachers and the qualified instructors of the courses received a small sti- pend for the extra time con- sumption the program involved. Mr. John Phelan, vice- principal and coordinator for student teachers commented, "Student teachers like to come hereg they like the student body and enjoy the atmosphere." His major concern was to make sure the program did not jeopardize the quality of in- struction within the school. Mr. Phelan described the program as "an opportunity for the school district to improve the quality of teaching since it pro- vides an inside view as to what caliber of young people are available for teaching positions."

Qi .,.A, 'Er administration f faculty f staff 207 r Extra income is always a help, especial- ly for those living on a teacher's salary. Coach Bob Baker earns a little extra money by drawing cartoons for the editorial section in the New Braunfels Herald. He also uses this talent to cap- ture his students and colleagues on paper. The artwork below is an exam- ple of a faculty member trying to decide what to do for "the great escape." Teachers Need the Great Escape Yes, teachers are "people" too. They cope with the same hassles of the day to day routine. Every once in a while teachers need to "escape" to that certain out of the way place just as everyone else desires. While teachers were a group defined by their jobs, they were also individual peo- ple with human needs. They needed to eat, to sleep, and some of them were even seen in local stores shopping. Some taught because they enjoyed the company of the kids, and others because they were not trained for anything else. To take a break from routine, some went skiing in Colorado, some enjoyed draw- ing cariacatures of other people, and others preferred to relax outdoors. Students felt teachers arrived at 8:00 a.m., taught classes, and disappeared at 4:00 p.m. That was not true. For example, Mr. John Sowell, Mr. Wayne Tucker, and Mrs. 208 administration-faculty-staff Becky Sanburg were always on campus well before 7:45 a.m., the official "sign in" time. Mrs. Bonnie Leitch offered extra help for math students and had a classroom full of students before and after the regular school day. Many teachers were found in their rooms grading papers after 3:45, the official "sign out" time. These teachers shared the concerns of each and every one of the students and were willing to go to extra lengths for them. For their extra effort and ability to cope with the everyday hassles, teachers deserved a break. Although teaching was the source of income for these peo- ple, the teachers' main source of reward came from the students. So if you ever happen to see one of these people walk- ing down the street, look at them and say, "Thanks, we couldn't have done it without you." l 5' CVEnf wilhr lr ,QS What is so interesting?

As the school year came to a close, students rush- ed to finish end of the year pro- jects and research papers while cramming for final exams. While this was the end of high school for the seniors, it was also the beginning of another year for underclassmen. Elec- tions were held for club officers as well as class officers. Monoceras, twirlers, and cheerleaders were chosen after many hours of diligent practice while the mascot and Unicorn handlers were chosen from teacher evaluations. Because of a mix up in the girls' scores, Monocera try-outs were held twice to give each girl a fair chance for a position on the squad. Cheerleader try-outs were altered this year to allow any girl, regardless of grade classification, a position on the varsity squad. Schedule cards were passed out to underclassmen, who carefully planned their remaining high school years. Athletes were issued game schedules and workout agendas for summer conditioning. While activities were winding down for the year, students were gearing up for next year as well. Landa park offers a variety of activities for freshmen. As a result of the hard work that the freshmen class put forth to win Queen of Hearts, they were ex- cused to go to the park for the after- noon to relax and have a picnic provid- ed by the yearbook staff. Mike Garcia, Latosca Stewart, and Jodi Sparks spend their afternoon on the Comal River in paddle boats. Westem day breaks monotony. The Student Council sponsored Western Day, which consisted of a root beer chug-a-lug contest, quick draw contest, dance contest, and a barbeque after school. Although the turnout was light, Carolyn Fey, Benton Willard, and Linda Wilson help consume the hotdogs which were provided by the Student Council and cooked by "chef" Kelly Smith. 218--end of school 'is A, 9. v fa SW' 5 ,f it A K H W ik!-Gr? wi nm , . 1. ,H Stacy Dement lends a helping hand to one of the children from the First Pro- testant Church Kindergarten during the Easter egg hunt sponsored by F.H.A.-H.E.R.O.

Graduates reminisced over the sad and happy, serious and fun moments of their years together and occasionally a dewy eye could be spotted. Along with those memories came the recollections of all the hassle that was involved just for a little tassel. Invitations to friends and relatives, cap and gown orders, morning practices for baccalaureate and com- mencement, and last minute assignments had to be com- pleted before seniors could of- ficially graduate.

Finally, the "big night" arrived and began with a welcome from the master of ceremonies, Rodney Fischer, class presi- dent. Speeches from valedic- torian Linda Wilson and salutatorian Robert Sarkozi echoed throughout the stadium as the class of '84 took their last look at N.B.H.S. through the eyes of a senior. The ceremony ended with the class singing the Alma Mater for the last time and filing out of the stadium. After tears were shed and "congrats" were offered, the seniors were off to celebrate their accomplishments in 306 different ways. graduation 221 'A at StudentsiMake News The local paper had names or pictures of students "in the newsn, from a state champion in U.I.L. science, Daniel Hermes, to winning a summer internship at M.

Kevin Brown, Kim Whitaker, and Teresa Thomas made marks at the state tennis tournament and at the girls' state track meet. Kevin advanced to the semi- finals in tennis, Teresa placed sixth in the 400 meter dash, and Kim placed first in the two mile run and second in the mile run. Weston Pacharzina ad- vanced to the national DECA contest held in Kansas City, Missouri, and placed first win- ning a S500 cash prize. The spring sports banquet and the academic awards ban- quet brought further recogni- tion to students. Robert Sarkozi, Dennis Hartman, and Linda Wilson were National Merit Scholarship finalists. 5' New superintendent gets involved. Dur- ing a special appearance at a pep rally, Mr. Charles Bradberry shed his coat to get the team and the fans psyched up for the game. Live from "Hollywood"? It's the pillow people! Libby Partida and the rest of the cheerleaders were the main attrac- tion at the pep rally the night before the Bay City playoff game. The foot- ball team finished the year as state semi-finalists. 222 theme summarization Greg Bender and Kim Whitaker received the U.S. Ar- my Reserve scholar-athlete award for their achievements in athletic and academic areas. Seniors were awarded a total of S240,340.00 in scholarships. Under other school news, re- quirements for a high school diploma changed from 19 credits for 1983-84 to 21 credits for 1984-85 and 22 credits for the 1985-86 school year. The school board approv- ed zero hour classes to allow an additional hour for electives before regular classes. Time set for the course was 7:30 in the morning. Students made the headlines with academic as well as extra-curricular accomplish- ments. These newsworthy ef- forts were proof that there can be academic success coupled with extra-curricular achievements. Get those lingers moving! Principal John Turman types in news of coming events and student achievements on the new computerized message board donated to the school by the student council.

Many high school students were worried about possibly losing their summer jobs because they were employed by local tourist businesses that relied on the water for the livelihood of their business. Some News Isn't Good News There are some news items that bring sadness and disap- pointment to our lives. The football team made it to the semi-finals, which was super. However, there was disappoint- ment that the team did not make it to the state finals. The county was faced with possible rationing of water due to lack of rainfall. The Soviets led Communist countries in a boycott of the summer olym- pics to be held in Los Angeles. On a more personal note, three people who were associated with the school died. Mrs. Vera Elizabeth Eikel died on January 29, 1984, Rocky Lagunas died on May 27, 1984, and Johnny Zamora died on June 4, 1984. Mrs. Eikel was the first editor of the high school yearbook. She was born on October 29, 1911. She was a radio and television write-up producer. Tragic automobile accidents took the lives of Rocky Lagunas and Johnny Zamora. Rocky was involved with athletics as a member of the j.v. football and baseball teams. He was born on April 7, 1967. Johnny was born on February 5, 1969 and was also involved in athletics. Even though there were news stories which were sad, disappointing, and shocking, these stories made life real. The good news out-shined the bad news during the school year to make fond memories without having to dwell on the bad times. We will remember Mrs. Eikel, Rocky, and Johnny for the positive contributions they made to school life. These memories, good and bad, will remain as a reminder of the years once shared. The flag is flying at half-mast to signify the loss experienced by the school, Rocky Lagunas ftopj and Johnny Zamora fbottomj.
