"I've been painting signs since I was a freshman," Amy Ford said. Some showed off artistic abilities, while others considered it just another social event. "l just sat around while everyone else did the work, kind of like a supervisor," Carey Zost said. Sign painting wasn't all fun and games. For some it became a constant job. "Oh, I hated making run-though signs. It's so hard to get the paper on the wall," Dino Castillo said. Not everyone could make Thursday after- noon sign painting, but most came when they could. "I went when I could. No one would let me draw, but I did write the Iettersfl I-leather Barnett said. So, what is sign painting? Joshua Price had the answer. "Isn't that where you learn how to paint those big signs, like the ones on the freeway?" The picture was more clear to some. "No, it's where you show your spirit by painting signs for pep rallies, games, and dances," Craig Watson said. Sign painting throughout the years has been a great opportunity for meeting new people and getting to know each other. "I like to paint weird things. Rad Harrison and I got together and painted a sign for the SGP game that said 'Wipe the Warriors? We put toilet paper all over it, Although it didn't make it to the pep rally, we had a lot of fun trying," Chris Lindman said.

The School Board's decision to have graduation on lvlay 28, 1988 at Moody Coliseum, before seniors took their final exams, was not easily accepted. The pre-exam date was set when students and parents objected to the original date of Sunday, June 5 at Moody. "I don't like the idea of having to come back alter graduation and taking my finaIs," JB. Miller said. No one wanted to have a facsimile of graduation when they diplomas would not be received until the week after exams. "We all decided to get together and have a meeting at The Power l-louse. lVIacArthur and Irving seniors were there as well to point out their views, too," said Senior Class President Dee Busey. The next step was meeting with the IISD Board members on November 16,1987 to discuss the reasons for wanting the date and location of gradua- tion changed. One issue that was discused was that some people didn't want to graduate on a Sunday for religious reasons. "I didn't necessarily have any objection to it being on a Sunday for religious reasons, but I felt it was important to keep graduation inside the city limits," John Ivlowry said, - After hearing the students' views, Board members voted to change the gdate to June 4,1988 and the location back to the traditional Texas Stadium.

"lt's the way you dress...your overall appearance," Anita Link said. j "I think fashion is best described by saying it is the look everyone' wants to have," Rebecca Bratton said. I Fashion does tend to flash as CLOTHES in everyone's mind. Clothes are: found in every fashion and style, from bright to pastel, fitted skirts and tailored shirts to flowing dresses and baggy pants. Styles seem to change weekly, and with the hoity-toity designers of today, who knows what will be next! Hairstyles have become a new craze also. Many girls are growing their hair long and then having it very permed or getting it cut extremely short and wild. Guys, on the other hand, are going for the preppy-punk cut that needs a can of mousse or an electric shock to stand straight up. "I like- having a different look than everyone else," Zak Nix said. "lt's an extension of one's personality," Kim Semons said. Attitude has a lot to do with fashion. l.iking one's self and the people around you can make a person have a totally new view on the way they see their world. Being friendly towards others makes you feel better, and besides that, you. will attract more people who will want to know what you are like, and int turn, have some very valuable friendships.

Sound familiar? Practically every store, business or restaurant has at least one high school student on the payroll urning dovvn dates and skipping football games: sacrifices of a working student. Everyday, students who vvork must make these and other sacrifices for the job that provides money for dates, gas and fun. "Having a job takes up all of my free time, but earning a good paycheck requires a lot of time and effort," Kyle Aldred said. Earning money by vvorking does do more for students than just take up time. Working is a great vvay to teach responsibility. "My parents wanted me to get ajob. They think I need to learn the value of money," Licia Chumley said. Jobs also help students with their expenses. Students, especially at Christmas time, are always needing money. Seniors, for instance, have an extremely long list of expenses. When it comes to paying for these costs, a job really comes in handy. UI had to get a job in order to help pay for a car, college, and all the activities that take place during my senior year," Boomer Bean said. Students feel differently about different jobs. All hate wearing those ugly green uniforms and standing on my feet all the time, but at least l am getting paid for it," Jeannie Bush, grocery clerk at lVlinyard's, said. From lvlinyardls to Crystal's Pizza Parlor, students are holding jobs. Salaries range from less than minimum wage plus tips working at Sonic to flat minimum vvage toiobs in sales based on commission. Whether they vvant to or have to, working is a super way to earn extra money for the things they need or want.

Everyone behaved excellently and was serious about what they were doing," Villarreal said. The purpose of the drive is to build a large supply of blood for the Nimitz Trust Fund. The fund is available to any Nimitz student, friend or family vvho needs a blood donation. By giving to the fund the donor is actually helping himself. To donate blood, the donor must be 17 years of age with a parent's per- mission or18 and over vvithout permission. They must be over 1 OO pounds and in good health. lf all these requirements are met, they were then eligible. "I was scared to death of what people said about the needle. l-lovvever, it vvasn't the needle that hurt. It vvas the little round ball that literally suck- ed," Tanya Tribble said.

As time crawls on, graduation becomes more of a 5fQqj?'5jZ3 distant goal than a dream. Finally, when exams draw are over, graduation faces seniors with stark reality bringing excitement, fear, laughter and tears. Seniors of 1988 confronted the Irving ISD School Board on the gradua- tion issue in the fall. Steven Baxley organized SAG, Students Against Graduation, to fight for Saturday Texas Stadium graduation over Sunday at Moody Coliseum. Baxley claimed the greatest part ofthe fight was not necessarily that the senior won, but 'iThe victory proved if a group of people really want to get something done in this country, they can get what they want, if they all pull together and work hard enough." Each year and for every graduating class, the valedictorian and salutatorian address speeches to classmates and family. For 1988, salutatorian David Coward gave a speech entitled Hlvlaster Your Own Destiny". l-lis words encouraged students to go out into the world and meet their goals. He also warned never to count on anyone but yourself. Valedictorian Nathan l3atto's speech clashed with the straight-forward and serious tone of Coward's address. Batto surprised the audience with his speech entitled "Facing Reality," which used the childrens story Green Eggs and l-lam by Dr. Seuss to relay the theme which was to never shun anything for the way it appears without ever trying it first.

Think blue in terms of Academics. t's vvinning a first place ribbon at the IISD lvledia Fair or at the North Texas State University History Tournament. But some achievements aren't recognized in this manner, yet give a sense of success to an individual. A senior reioices at his scholarship offer or the acceptance at the school of his choice, or perhaps that extra gradepoint on his report card.

It all starts when the Vika big sisters pound on little sisters' doors and wake them up. without time to brush their teeth and hair or put deodorant on, little sisters are dragged to Grandy's for a huge breakfast. After being stuffed, the newly inducted Vikas were brought to Nimitz and had to show everyone how well they could do their kicks in the halls. When the 8:25 bell rang, 40 newly inducted Vikas went to six classes dressed in sweats, pajama tops, with unfixed hair and without make-up. Many of the organizations had induction ceremonies for new members this year. New members of the National Honor Society are tapped at the beginning of the school year. Honorees are easy to spot in the halls, as they' wear their newly received badges proudly. his year National Honor Society had the largest new membership in the schools history. During the ceremony, all new members were receive an honor pin and a certificate to show their acceptance into the national organization. Mu Alpha Theta also had an induction ceremony this year. All new members gathered and listened to speeches and to learn what the organiza- tion does. Many other clubs have inductions to show new comers the ropes.

Students and sponsors agreed that the one of the best ways to raise money, and one of the most fun, was a carwash. Be it rain or shine, if there was a carwash going on, students were responsible for it. Carwashes were used for fundraising by many groups. Carwashes held this year were often quite unusual-they were free. Strange as it sounds, these carwashes proved to be succesful. Juniors, along with the German Club and the Vikas, readily accepted donations and pledges. Many juniors attended the carwash, scrubbing, rinsing and drying over 200 cars. Krystin Murphy dressed as a clown, flagging down people to come to the carwash. Nl had fun dressing up and yelling at cars. lt worked, too," Murphy said. Juniors raised 5237 in two days. German Club also had quite a day bringing in over 5300. This money was used to help them attend state competition in Austin. All first year and second year German students showed up for some fundraising, sunn- ing and water fighting. 'iGood ol' Kevin Loudermilk gave me a shampoo in the back of the head. The best part of the carwash was getting him back," David Scott said. car washes held this year proved to be succesful, though held in strange ways. When the sun went down and the wind got cold, the carwash was packed up. Though towels went home with permanent grease stains and students went home looking like wet mops, they all agreed that carwashes are the best and most fun way to raise money.

Booths needed to be set up, balloons needed to be inflated, and posters needed to be posted. Shortly after 8 a.m., students and teachers began to arrive to start setting up their games and filling their booths with prizes. H , , I remember most vividly the horde of staffers, parents, and teachers constantly asking me for tables, chairs, or something. Always something," said newspaper editor James Mining. 'fAlthough the carnival was very hec- tic, it was a very inspiring test of my patience. And strangely enough, l wouldnt mind doing it all again." Carnival kicked following the parade, though people began arriving early. Lines of people waited anxiously to try their luck. If they did not win the firstltime, they were soon back to try again. Parking lot was so crowded that people could barely get around. Then again, that is what a carnival is supposed to be like. lf so many hadnt been there, it wouldnt have been so much fun," Raquel Coronado said. For many students, the dunking booth was the main attraction. It gave them a chance to seek revenge on favorite teachers by helping the teachers takela plunge into the cold water. I think the dunking booth was a great fun. The teachers seemed to have had fun, including myself. lt was fun to see how poorly the students can throw," said Coach G.W. Melton. lcorrnnned on page 1153 wwf, Ell2EHomecoming Carnival THANKS A LDT! Coming up after a powerful dunk, Mrs. Erica Hankins prepares for the next big splash.

Seniors, along with the Booster Club, sponsored food booths at the carnival. Munchies ranging from nachos to hotdogs to snowcones were available. lce cold drinks for all the hot and thirsty people filled the bill. German Club sponsored a food booth also, with long sticks of German sausage to spread a bit of the German culture. After the rain subsided and things got underway, the carnival turned out not only to be a blast, but also a huge success. lt was an excellent spirit builder for Homecoming, which took place that night, but it required a trgmendous amount of time and effort to put the carnival together. My publications students worked like slaves before sunrise, during the rain and all through clean up," said carnival sponsor Ms. Carrie Skeen. "I think the carnival gets bigger and better every year. The more we learn, the more fun it gets. We are already making plans for next year's carnival." Although there was much effort put into the carnival and many tired bones resulting from it, in the end it all paid off. The carnival was a fun- draising effort forthe entire school. lt also gave everyone a chance to have a day full of fun and games and laughter with all of their friends and classmates.

We all felt some tension from pressure and responsibilty to meet deadlines. 99 Robie Oxford Staffers gain unity from working as they learn about responsibility Stories! Pictures! Layouts!-HEADLINES! These perhaps were the most common words spoken inside the doors of the Journalism department. All three staffs had their share of work throughout the year as they learned what group effort was really all about. I found that we always have to be willing to work during and after school, because goofing off not only hurts yourself but also the other staff members," Dawn Shelton said. Deadline pressures were stressed most often for the Valhalla staff, although the 100 West and Sword and Shield deadlines kept many of the staffers up late at night. I think that we really have put out a great paper this year, and all the late nights spent up here have really paid off. Being on staff has really given me a chance to express myself," said Michelle Woods. Probably the heaviest load, however, was that of the photographers. Each one had to face the constant demands of the staffers, which consisted of taking and printing pictures. Hlhis year's job as photo editor has taken up a lot of my extra time from my social life and other activities," said Tanya Tribble. All in all, the time consuming work of the staffs had paid off in the endhwhen everyone felt a sense of accomplishment.

Through the hustle and bustle of the holiday, students took time out of their busy schedules to share cheer with sick and injured children. Before Halloween, students met at school to paint pumpkins for the visit. Painted pumpkins and other treats were presented to the kids instead of candy, since many of the patients are on special diets. Junior Historians also decorated the hospital Activities Room with crepe paper and posters. while some decorated, patients invited others to their individual rooms, where beds were decorated and pumpkins handed out. "This was a good activity, because the students learned charity and compassion, as well as community service," Ms. Helen Bradley, Junior Historians sponsor, said. Since the Halloween project was such a success, Junior Historians decided to go back to the children's hospital for Valentines Day. They decorated the Activities Room again and took Valentine cards for the little patients to receive when they had their Valentines party. Doing things for other people makes me feel really good. I like doing volunteer work at the hospital because I get to see how much the patients enjoy it," Stephen Tillery said. involved students not only helped the less fortunate have good times and happier holidays, but they proved to themselves and to the patients there are people who still care and really do want to help.

Every organization at one point during the school year decides to have a fundraiser for one thing or another. Whether it is senior prom, money to go towards club trips, or to pull an organization out of the hole, fund- raisers are a great way to make a lot of money in a little amount of time. candy, stationery and stuffed animals were popular sellers during the school year. Some ideas rose up at the begining of the year because of some very creative and spirited seniors. They decided to raise money by selling Hawaiian leis. Although it might seem far fetched, they did raise some money that was well needed. Another good idea given to the organizations by their member's parents was the idea for a spaghetti supper. The Vikas held one spaghetti supper the night of the Homecoming Bonfire and managed to bring in some money to go towards their trip to the 1988 Peach Bowl in Atlanta, Georgia. Another was held by the Nimitz Orchestra so that they could raise money to attend the Buccaneer Music Festival in April. Fundraisers are time consuming and sometimes not very rewarding, but when you have a lot of brainstorming and cooperation, they can be the best way to boost the bank acount of any club.

PELE class brightened the hospital with red and pink hearts on Valen- tinefs Day, Decorations were hung in children's rooms and in the play area. junior Historians also joined the highway clean up program and were assigned to a section of highway near Fort Worth. 'ilt was hard work, but we managed. It felt good doing something for the statej' Monica Grigsby said. Historians will return during the summer to clean up again. National Honor Society also participated in community service programs by helping support TV Worth Watching through their annual work on the KERA Channel l3 spring pledge drive. 'Alt was an experience to be able to help a TV station raise money and to keep it on the air," Chad Rueffer said. A large group of organizations toiled in the soil of school flower beds on the Saturdays set aside for beautification of the school and the areas around the school. Each group participating was assigned a flower bed or area. Flowers were planted and weeds pulled to make a visible statement of service for the community and the school.

Many clubs hold their meetings before school or after school. A major part of the fun of an organization is getting together and talking about the groups activies. Many organizations talk about how to raise money. HWe made cards with poems and sold them for VOCC'I'," said Katrina Wright. Students also work on ideas to recruit more people join their club. I'We're always hanging up signs around all the locker rooms to try to get more student athletes to join FCA," Michelle Inge said. "I guess the reason more student athletes don't join is because they think were trying to push God on them, but we're not. It's just a bunch of athletes getting together and doin group activites," she said. fiubs try to have meetings before school and after school so the people who sleep late may also attend mettings. "I like the afternoon meetings better because I can sleep late. Anyway, I have to wait after school for my mom so it really doesnit matter to have to stay for the later meetings," Barbie Burnett said. People often join a club or organization so they can have that extra picture of themselves in the yearbook. UI think it is so funny when we announce that we are having pictures taken for the yearbook, and all of these people show up that I haven't seen at but maybe one meeting just so that they will have one more page number beside their name," Ms. Helen Bradley, Junior Historian sponsor, said.

For freshman, it was their first time to expereince the fun and for seniors it was their last. wfhis was the first picnic I've ever been to, and I thought it was fun. My friends were there, and we just joked around and had a good time. It also made me feel as though being a freshman wasn't so bad," Anna Duarte said. funiors hosted an active picnic with many contests, like egg toss, bub- ble gum chewing and three-legged races. They also had tons of food and finished the day off with a baseball game. Among all the activities taking place, freshmen and sophomores took a break on a Sunday afternoon to play a class competition football game. After the sophomores defeated the freshmen, drinks and food were provid- ed for both classes. Playing in the game was fun. I just goofed off. lt was a break from school, and l enjoyed it," Stacy Bennett said. sophomores had many show up at their picnic, and there was plenty for them to do. Besides having games to play and class competitions, many people went just to be with their friends and goof off. During the picnic there was also plenty of food for everyone to eat. Among all the picnics this year, seniors came last, hosting their last informal get-together on Friday after finals with food and lots of memories of good picnics past.

It just so happens that all three of these organiza- tions are filled with many talented students that really enjoy participating. lust what is it that draws students to these organizations? HChoir is a lot of fun. The members are really neat, and we have a wonderful time performing and just being together," Michelle Price said. I enjoy band a whole lot. We all have big brothers and sisters that are always there to give you support or to just talk to. We are a really close group and that helps a great deal when we are scared about perform- ing," Angela Hevron said. All of these organizations are constantly doing something together as gropp. This is what many students like about them. orchestra is really exciting because of all the activities. My favorite was the trip we took to Corpus Christi during the spring. Even though our main purpose was to perform, we still managed to have a great time goof- ingipff and just getting to know each other," Chris Windham said. Ulla is always exciting. lt is fun competing against other Irving schools. It is especially neat when we score higher than they do because then we get to say that we're the best without lying about it," Ruthie Mussler said. Despite all hard work, the long hours of rehearsals, and the extreme dedication required, members always end up proud of what they have ac- complished. When all the scales have been sung and all the notes have been played, music has been a big part of the year. Rnhie Oxford FIUULE DEE DEE Laura Coltharp plays the violin at the Spring concert.

Banquets give theistudents a chance to have one more memorable night full of fun. we spent all year getting to know one another. lt really hurts to say good-bye until next year. l think banquets help us realize the importance of friendship," said Rhonda Kanhai. Many students look forward to the end of the year banquets because awards are handed out, and members are recognized for their outstanding work. f'Banquets are a great thing because it gives other students a chance to see the work of their other class mates. Banquets are also the best way to capture the year," Christy Bridges said. Banquets were held in places from the school cafeteria, to hotels, to nice restaurants, while some groups made their banquets out to be more like a party. The publications staffs planned what was supposed to be a fun-in-the-sun banquet. Although there were clouds in the sky and the weather was a bit chilly, everything rolled along as planned. Some of the members swam, while others sat around getting splashed. I was a little upset with the weather because l had planned on getting a tan. l still had a good time though. l felt like l gained a hundred pounds because l ate oodles and oodles of food," said Tanya Tribble.

Q9 A Miss Diane McMeans Sponsors and officers make clubs and organizations full of fun what would students do without the club sponsors and officers? Without them, there would be chaos around school. Being a club sponsor or officer involves putting in extra time to help out club members with their organization. so what does it take to be a dedicated officer? "l think that you have to be really interested in what that club does and expect to give your time to it," Susan Motley said. As leaders of their group, students officers found that responsibility also goes along with their title. "Being an officer requires a lot of dedication to the club and willingness to put aside other things for it," said Monica Grigsby. hough some officers hnd that they take on a lot of responsibility, there's always the fun part of being in their clubs. Parties are a big activity in almost all the clubs, along with doing community work, fundraising and get-togethers. The most important event of the clubs was the meetings, which allowed officers to discuss their ideas with other members. Sponsors contribute just as much to the club by organizing and giving the officers a helping hand with their work. 'lMy job is to provide an oppor- tunity to enrich the students' lives by creating interest in other areas of science not offered to them in the classroom," said Mrs. Erika Hankins. Helping the officers is the biggest priority of the sponsors, who devote time to the clubs. Through dedication and hard work, sponsors and officers enable the clubs to have a wonderful time as they learn.

The score is just enough to put the opponent ahead and leave the Vikes with a loss. This season was marked with many crushing factors. t'Overall, we had a good season, but we just had a lot of bad breaks that really hurt us. We have learned to deal with upsets of all kinds this year," Byron Myles said. The season began with an upsett- ing loss to Arlington Lamar, 27-28. A week later, the Vikings came up short again to Plano East. "I feel we had a lot talent. lt was just putting it all together that was a problem," Alejandro Roman said. Needing a win, they surprised Fort Worth Southwest with a high scoring victory. ln the first district game against South Grand Prairie, they came out on top again. Farda really went radical on us. He really psyched us up before the game and when we got on the field we were full of spirited energy," Chase Danford said, Things got off to a slow start in the first half against MacArthur the following week. Mac came out in the first half ready to play. However, after halftime the Vikings came out for revenge. Controlling the ball for most of the half, they began a comeback attempt that fell short again in the end. " l looked forward all year long to playing Mac. Not only for the reason that they are our big uptown rival, but also to have a chance to tackle Reggie Finch throughout the game," William Dobbins said.

"Our defense played good as usual, and our offense was produc- tive too, but we had difficulties in other important areas," Mark Kim said. The following week against Grand Prairie proved to be a competively played game on both teams' part. Throughout the game, the two teams battled constantly with each other. Finally, the end of the battle disap- pointed both teams. lt was equally divided with a tie on the scoreboard. 'iOur team was loaded with good athletes. lt wasn't that we did not have enough talent, because we had plenty of that. lt was that there were many mistakes made throughout the season," Don Wise said. Mansfield was next weeks rivals. From the very hrst quarter, Vikes led Mansheld. Finally, they topped their lead over Mansfield with a 20-3 win. The game against DeSoto demonstrated how well Nimitz, a team with not much size but a desire and ability to rise to the occasion, could play. They held DeSoto scoreless both halves and stretched their lead to a 35-0 win over DeSoto. The season ended much like it started, with a loss to lrving. The season was productive however. Underclassmen gained valuable experience that could soon lead to a successful season. 'iliven though we lost many good seniors this year, we have several talented underclassmen returning next year to take their places," Kory Knott said.

JV Football alone doesn't fool scores Despite many hours of practice ana' indlarklaal talent JV team lacked unity essential for winning season racticing eight hours for every Thursday nights' game, the junior varsity football team battled out the season. Ending with a 2-8 record, players were disappointed. But one game that stood out from all rest was the South Grand Prairie game. 'Kin the game against SGP, we played as a team, not as individuals. We went out ther and did a sensa- tional job. We were really fired up and knew we could beat them," said Larry Brooks said. Unfortunely for the JV that was only one of their two victories. "I felt we played pretty good, but we did not play as well as we could have, and our record should have been better," Chris Rogers said. A lot of players felt this was mainly a season to get ready for varsity. f'This year I wish we could have won more games, but to me this was mainly a preparation season, and we all learned more techniques for next year, " Ricky Llorente said. The team did have much talent but scores are deceiving. 'll know we had a lot of talent, but we played as individuals and not as a team. We knew we needed to come together but for some reason we could not," Todd Smith said. During season, all players had to dedicate much of their time to hard work and determination. Besides their regular class period workout, they also stayed after school during the season for more workout time, leaving extra time only for homework. After the season was over, it was time for the off-season workouts. The coaches then decided who would move up to varsity and started the training for them all. Even though all the players had to give up hot summer afternoons, after school time, and Thursday evenings for games, they all felt it was worth it. " I loved playing football this year because l improved so much from last year and we really did have a great team," Duc Ngo said.

"High school football is definitely different, mainly in learning new techniques," Craig Ragsdale said. Season started August l2 with summer workouts lasting for three weeks. Afternoon temperatures rang- ed from 95-102 degrees, but inside pads and helmets it seemed 20 degrees higher. Practices cut back to three a week when school started due to Thurs- day games and Friday pep rallies. "Workouts were tiring and monon- tonous, but from all the attention we got from the school, it paid off," Pete Terenzi said. Blue teams season ended with seven wins and three lossesg Gray team had four wins and two losses. "lt got harder as the year progress- ed, and we were getting better, but so were the other teams, so it didn't end the way we wanted it to," Jeff Sutherland said. Coaches helped the players throughout the year, keeping up their spirit, on and off the field. HThey gave us support when we were down, especially when we lost district," Sutherland said. l'This year's team was real coachable and always tried their hardest, as their final record showed," Coach Mike White said. As any player knows, pep talks always improve plays. Coach White told his players to Mwork harder and get better every week." During the hard times and after the season was over, the players agreed that the practices, while unpleasant, were a neccessity. "They were very hard and tiring, but in the end they paid off," Mike Kim said. "They needed to learn what being a Viking football player is all aboutf' Coach White said, uso we started teaching them as freshmen." l'Overall, the first season as a Viking was quite an experiencefl Brad Craft said.

Many of the volleyball games were either tied or close in the last couple of seconds, but in the end, the opponents found the extra points that they needed to pull ahead of Nimitz and win the game. Throughout the season, many of the players commented that they let outside problems interfere with their concentration on the game. "We had the potential to win, but we had some commotion within the players," said Denese Mitchell. 'tAt times we would get along great, but then something would happen or so meone would make a mistake, and then instead of being a team, it seem- ed like we were each on a different team against one another, " she added.

"We played better all around, even though it did not show on our record," said Michelle Fletcher, 'fBut next year we'll do a lot better." ln a quick survey of the student body, many students said that anyone could play volleyball, however, some of the volleyball team members strongly disagreed with the majority of the students who were surveyed. The players said that volleyball was a challenging sport which takes a lot of skill, concentra- tion, and it definitely takes a lot of hard work and dedication. l'Even though our record does not show it, we did improve as we work- ed together throughout the entire season. Many of our games were close and hard fought games. You can expect that next year's team will do very well since we will only be losing one player," Castro said.

HWhen we looked at the other teams, it got us pumped up for the game, We always went in as the underdogs. so we had to prove that we weren't going to let our heigth be our downfall," Jason Beals said, Many of the players felt a lot of the credit goes to the support of the coaches. "Even though at times it seemed like the coaches were giving up on us, we did not let this get us down. ln return, when they saw us play- ing as hard as we could, it would bring them back to giving us support," Daniel Faber said, With the successful JV players ad- vancing to varsity, combined with varsity's spirit and knowledge, the future looks bright.

Begining the season in tournament play, they won two of the games played and placed consolation in the third. Overall, out of the 30 games played, 22 of them were victories for the team. ln district play, they finished with an awesome record of I0-4. Although it took many hours of practice, it was well worth it to all. "Playing JV basketball was really a fun experience and an exciting time. I felt kind of priviledged to be play- ing JV," Matt Acosta said. Not only did the team stan prac- tice at 8 in the morning, but they also spent many late hours at school. Coming up at school early momings, staying late, and weekend games took up much of their time. "Playing JV was a lot of hard work but was also a fun and great experienceff Adrien Sherry said. The supporting fans and encourag- ing coaches were the two major fac- tors that helped out the JV this year. "The coaches always encouraged us and pushed us to our limit. They always told us to do the best we could and helped us play as a team. They also helped us get to know each other, which really gave us team supportf' Acosta said. During practices the JV team scrimmaged against the varsity which really built up their skills and helped them learn more. "Playing against the varsity every day made us a lot tougher and stronger. lt also helped us come together as a team,'l Sherry said. One game that stood out as a highlight in the season was the game against Duncanville. "Duncanville is the best team in the district, and at half-time we were losing by seven, but we came back after and only lost by one. We came together and played as a team and not as a bunch of individuals," Sherry said. Shelly Clements Buys' .IV Basketball: FrontRou,' Zak Nix.

E159EBoys' JV Basketball Boys' Freshman Basketball I S the wa the ball bounces Basketball freshmen spent their hrst year like any othersg they observed oys' freshman basketball teams ended the season with few victories because of a slow start in the beginning. Troubles included problems in shooting and passing the ball. 'tln the first quarter, we mostly bricked or air-balled, and consequently, we spent the rest of the game coming from downhill up," Doug Hartman said. However, unity troubled both the blue and grey teams the most. ffWe had trouble playing as a team at first. Each person was playing his own game, but once we became a team, we improved throughout the season." Michael Nerio said. However. some games proved to be better than others. One in par- ticular was the game against Mansheld. 'The score went back and forth the whole game, until we final- ly won in double overtime by three points. The game not only helped us in our win-loss record, but it boosted our spirits. We proved to ourselves and others that we can learned and experienced stick with a team the entire game and more and still winf' Hartman said. There were many outstanding players in both teams. Nerio, guard, applied steady pressure up the middle throughout the season. By doing so, he averaged over l3 points a game. Melvin Allen, forward, gave an outstanding performance in every game also. With a winning combina- tion of shooting and rebounding, he helped trigger rallies that led to several victories. He scored not only from his rebounds. but also from his outside shot. Barry Knott, guard, acquired points that ventured into double digits in almost every game, and much like Nerio, he posted a threat anytime he drove up the middle. A bad start at the beginning of the season created much doubt, yet once they got into the mainstream of things, the boys' freshman basketball teams proved to be a competitive team after all.

Girls' Varsity Basketball Hard work through dedication Athough a playoff spot was lost varsity girls found many great accomplishments by neaer gluing up hey practiced several hours a week. including Saturday mornings. They worked hard in practice and in games to stay in the race for the playoffs. Who are these dedicated athletes? They are the girls' varsity basketball team. All the hard work and dedication showed in the way the varsity girls played every game. They fought back in each game to keep their chance at a spot in the playoffs, but in the last game, they just lost some of that spirit that they needed to keep their dreams of going to the playoffs alive. "The girls did not lose their shot at the playoffs until the last game of the season. lf they would have played more consistantly, they might have made it to the playoffs," said Coach Al Tiller. f'The season went pretty good. We lost some games that we should've won, but we also won some games that we never expected to win because of the competition," said Taji Cornell. "Everyone always wants to beat MacArthur." Cornell added. "and l think that we shouldve beat them more than once. When we played Mac. it really did hurt when we lost to them." The girls won 20 games during the season. This was a terrific ac- complishment for them because there are not very many teams that were able to win this many games in one season. They were also the only team that was able to hold Duncanville under 60 points in one game. "Even though we should've gone to the playoffs and we didnt make it, l think we played pretty good throughout the season." said Christina Chaccia. "Sometimes we had a bad game, but most of our games were played well. We were one of the few teams able to win 20 games. We were also the only team that was able to hold Duncanville under 60 points in one game," Chacchia added.

JV basketball team experienced changes throughout the season, they are satisfied with the team's results. 'lOur team had a lot of changes during the season, but everyone did their best on the court and l felt at the end it was fun and rewarding," Spring Mc Peters said. A major change for the team was when some of the members were ad- vancing, causing them to make special adjustments. The size of the team was being altered off and on, which was tough on the players as well as the coach. JV may not have won every game, but the season recordls results show- ed that they won more than they lost. Working as a team was a major strategy, which was used in every ga m e . The players practiced every day, perfecting their skills on different plays such as lay-ups, free-throws, shooting, scrimmages, and passes. Ml think considering our size of team this year we did pretty good, and Coach Potera really worked well with us. Shes an excellent coach who knows what she's doing," said Brenda Mills Most players agreed that the best game played was against Grand Prairie. l'Grand Prairie was a blasti lt was a good game as well as a fun game," Rochelle Bush said. They are proud to say that they came close to winning games against Duncanville and living, and they can boast of a victory over MacArthur. All members are looking forward to next year, when they plan on making big improvements in their record. "Were all hoping for a better season next year, when we feel the team will be stronger and more experiencedf' said Coach Robin Potera. Although the end result was a 1613 season, the team has a positive attitude which is expressed in their teamwork.

E i Girls' Freshman Basketball First ear on the big courts Aayusting to high school life was tough enough, but team work and team spirit eased the often rocky road wild but fun basketball season reeted freshman girls as they began their high school careers with a season bringing both triumph and defeat. The first year consisted of long hard hours in the gym sweating, run- ning and practicing on dribbling, passing and shooting while classmates were home drinking ice tea and watching Oprah Winfrey, Charles Manson on Geraldo, or the Smurfs. What helped the freshman team most through the season was their ability to work together as a team, a key element to a successful season. Most of the girls on the team felt like they learned a lot and ac- complished many things this season. Even if the season didn't turn out the way that the girls hoped, it was still a learning experience. Another foundation for the team was winning determination. But one of the most important foundations of the team was the student body, the teachers, the girls' parents and teammates cheering. One adjustment for the girls was adjusting to high school life. The competition was rougher and that meant more practice but a team determined to win never really gets enough practice. l'We worked really hard this season and played really hard. Our efforts didnlt pay off as much as we hoped, but l feel next season will turn out better," said Dana Baxter. One thing for sure is that the girls' freshman basketball team has school spirit and determination. The main energy of the team was their deter- mination to win. But most of the energy of the team was the en- thusiastic crowd. "The crowd helped us out a lot, and they were behind us a 100 per- cent and that helped us out even more," said Shanna Oliver. While their season started off slowly, all it took was a little ad- justing and a lot of practice to make it on the high school court.

Just ask a member of the Nimitz wrestling team. and they will tell you'-or maybe even show you, Although the wrestlers did not have a very good season as a team, they did outstanding as individuals, More points were awarded on an individual basis than on a team basis. "Our team this year was too inexperienced to compete with many of the strong team we were up against. We were able to place higher as individuals in the meets than we could as a teamf team captain David Scott said. The team had several wrestlers who did a super job in their matches and were able to place in regionals. Scott and Scott Karraker both plac- ed second in regionals. and Mike Sutton and Byung Noh placed third in regionals. "l was very excited to be able to place in regionals and to qualify for the state tournament. I think l did a good job this season. but l still hope to do better next year." Karraker said. The team had many newcomers this year. including a coach new to the sport, Coach Mike Dyson. With a new coach and many new freshman members, the team really did not know what to expect. "Considering the fact we had a new coach and many freshman wrestlers, we went into the season with open minds. Coach Dyson pro- ved to be an excellent coach, and the new members proved to be impeci- ble wrestlers," said Mike Competaro. Even though this season was not one of the team's best, they did have some improvements. One large improvement was the crowd support they received. "Although this year was our big- gest year for recognition, I think it would have been even bigger if we would have had more home matches," said Scott.

A new gymnastic center is being built at lrving High and will be finished by next year so that the practices can be held there. "l can't wait for the new gym because it's going to have more room and equipment to allow us to learn new tricks," Debbie Smith said. Another obstacle the team had to overcome was their size. 'lOur size has restrained us from going to regionals and state as a whole team," David Cochran said. Even though they didnit go as a team, individuals succeded in going to regionals and one represented Nimitz at the state competition. Larry Reeves, Debbie Smith and Stephanie Collier placed at regionals. Reeves qualified for state and plac- ed on vault and floor. 'fl know l really could have done better, but it sure does feel good to know l placed 9th and 12th out of the whole state," Reeves said. All of the team agrees that most of the credit goes to their coach, Mrs. Janet Cochran. "Coach Cochran always was there to give us pep talks before meets and give us a shoulder to cry on after- wards," Stacie Cashman said.

Members of the team arrived at Northlake and were in the water, ready to go, by 6:30 a.m. 'Alt was very hard for me to get up in the morning and try to be in the pool by 6:30 a.m. l had to get up a little before 6 a.m. just to get there on time," Matt Brooks said. Swim team members were not the only ones who got to work out at Northlake Every morning they work- ed out with Irving and MacArthur swim teams. f'Swimming with the MacArthur and Irving teams is much different than people think. ln school, we think of them as our arch rivals, but when we get in the water we become very close friends. We cheer each other on during the meets, and we have a lot of fun together," said Lindsay Leavitt. Being on the team does not mean .pnvlrr just a bunch of swimming and splashing but consists of hours practicing the different techniques, swimming laps and learning discipline. "Swimming taught me discipline in more areas than one. It taught me how to discipline my body to the dif- ferent workouts," Brooks said. Ml felt really good in the morning after a good workout, fresh and ready for the day. l also got a good inner feeling as a yardage would build up,'l he added. Swimmers had an excellent season considering they were a small team with young swimmers and a new coach on campus. They were one of the largest groups of swim- mers Nimitz has ever had. The team hopes the increase in swimmers will continue to grow. f'The swimmers were a very young and hard working team. They strived to do their best at practice and at school. With experience, they should excel next year,', said Coach Mary Lessor.

Hopes for pla offs kicked aside Lack of experience proves to be a major factor when the number of defeats outweigh the total victories et us set the scene. lt is Tuesday night at the Nimitz soccer field. Out on the field, the electricity is flowing, the players are knocking each other down just to achieve that winning goal at the opposite end of the field. Meanwhile, in the stands, the fans are screamming and yelling, UGO Vikingst "'l Hey ref, Where do you think you're at? Vacation?" Mothers are on the edge of their seats praying their babies dont get hurt. But the minute he is knocked down, the first words out of her mouth are "Kill 'emf' Even though the games weren't always like this, the fans and the players gave it thier best try. 'Speak- ing as a former player and fan, l have seen the number of fans increase tremendously the last three years. Hopefully, next year we will have a large crowd to follow us to the playoffs," Carey Zost said. Between trying to stay warm and catching up on the latest gossip, the fans somehow still found time to watch the game. l'The team played a fairly exciting game. They have the talent and ability to be a great team. With most of them returning, next year should be a victorious season," .lack Danford, parent and dedicated fan, said. Due to loss of a strong senior core, varsity faced a rebuilding year. Players started the season full of high hopes for a good district showing. But they soon discovered that it would take more than hope to achieve what they wanted. "We were a very inexperienced team, and it showed in some of the games. Through it all, l think we made a good attempt. The experience the we gained this year will be a tremendous help for next year," Chase Danford said. The lights have been turned off, and the stands are deserted. Another Nimitz soccer season is over. The returning players now wait for next year to try and obtain their goals once more.

All in all, it was a great season consisting of seven wins and seven losses. The team was mostly made up of sophomores and freshmen, although there were two starting juniors and two starting seniors. Long hours spent practicing after school paid off for the team, especially when it came time for the district playoffs. MacArthur, an original playoff qualifier, was disqualified because they had an illeligible player play- ing during the season. For this reason, the playoff decision came down to South Grand Prairie and Nimitz. South Grand Prairie had two losses to Mac which became wins with the disqualification, while the Lady Vikings had only lost one game to the Cardinals and only gained one win, leaving SGP to advance. The girls this year, and like every year, had wanted badly to play in the playoffs. "The girls and l are keeping our faith up for next year. God has got to be on our side, because l feel we have worked really hard the past three years l have been on the team," Rhonda Kanhai said. Next year will be just as challeng- ing for the girls soccer team because of the distict change, although the girls are dedicated, disciplined and have an inner drive to succeed. As far as awards, there were many. Nimitz won the second highest number of awards in district. Dawn Shelton received the MVP and Kanhai and Christina Chacchia both received First Team All District honors, while Lori Sears and Heather Garrison were awarded with Second Team All District. Honorable men- tions were Kim Reeves and Michelle Inge. A good season ending in dissap- pointment helped them realize they have much talent to apply and goals to achieve through hard work.

As the seniors look around they are amazed by the number of inex- perienced players. "l couldn't believe that there was such an overwhelming majority of freshmen and sophomores on the team. My hrst thought was 'Well, we sure do have a long way to go'," Liz Samuel said. 'Alt wasn't that the new members were awful, it was just that the experience wasn't there,"Juran l-lan said. Slowly but surely, the team pro gressed and improved. Everyday dur- ing sixth period the team was out on the courts practicing everything from howto hold the racket to per- forming the perfect backhand. Finally the actual tournament season came. Almost every week the team was either at a tournament or hosting a tournament. Each match provided each player with a little more experience which would help them in the next one. "Sometimes we psych ourselves out of a match before it even begins. lt all depends on who you're play- ing. l try to just concentrate on get- ting the ball over the net. Then l worry about how hard to hit it," Arunkamar Margabandu said. "Sportsmanship is really impor- tant during any match. That was something we really excelled in. Others schools complimented us a lot on our sportsmanship. lt feels really goodf' Han said. The season ended as quickly as it came. "Considering the lack of ex- perience I think we did very well. We started out not knowing what to expect, but as the year progressed we learned to work hard. We really matured not only individually, but also as a team," Han said. Ml feel really confident about next year's team. We worked extremely hard this year to prove ourselves to the other schools. Even though we didn't always win, we played the best that we could," Samuel said. Robie Oxford I "".-dark ..f.i!,, .

Well, that is exactly what the Nimitz track team did this year. Some of the most challenging teams they faced this year were North and South Grand Prairie, DeSoto, and Duncanville. Mit was a real hard district for sprinters since we had the state 100m and 200m champion in our districtfl Jamey Bradley said. The team had built themselves up for victory and defeat. Practices usually consisted of stretching out, a few laps around the track and tim- ings on each event again and again until they were perfected. Some of the running events were 100m dash, 200m dash, relays, hurdles and long distance runs. Other competitve events were the shot put, pole vault, and long jump Many problems were faced by the track team throughout the year. lneligibility and injuries set the team back. "We lost several good people to ineligibility. We couldn't seem to keep all of our team members eligible and healthy at the same time," Coach William Hughes said. Another major problem for the team was their small size in com- parison to other teams in the district. "Overall we did good considering our size. Since we had a small team, we didn't usually win, but if each member could have been looked at individually, people could have seen how great each and every runner really was," Matt Brooks said. During the track season several records were broken. Rodrick Walker broke the record for the 200m dashg Brooks broke the school pole- vaulting record by jumping at 13 feet. This year's team was relatively young because it was made up mostly of sophomores and freshmen. This year's seniors were proud to say that these upcoming runners would definitely make the school proud and return the district title if they stuck to it.

The success was a direct result of hard work and team effort. "Attitudes among the teammates this year were great. We had a lot of problems last year. What we accomplished this year was really a team effort," said Jennifer Etten. The girls worked hard for what they have accomplishedg Julie Strickland qualified for regionals, Lori Hines placed first in the high jump, Timberey Meeks took fourth in the shot put, and sprint relay team of Rochelle Bush, Debbie Brazier, Kim Gruber and Julie Strickland placed fourth. HI think the whole team did very well. Our strongest areas have been in the distant events. We are also strong in the sprintsf' Coach Gina Peddy said. In the hot sun or in the cold weather, the girls' track team could always be seen running ahead of the crowd. "We worked really hard. We put in a lot of time and effort after school. I think we really did well," said Tanya Graves. Usually any team will lose several players to injuries or to possible fail- ing grades during their season. But this team lost very few. "We didn't lose too many players this year. We had a few minor in- juries, but they healed right up before regionalsfl said Peddy. Some members could run only part of the season due to ineligibilty. 'fLast year I wasn't able to run track because of failing grades. This year I was able to run the whole season. I never knew how much I missed track until this year when I was able to run," Christy Bryant said. A strong rapport has developed between the team and Peddy in her second season. "TheyIve adjusted to what I expect from them. My philosophy is to work hard, but I want them to enjoy what it. If you're doing something you don't enjoy, you won't do it well," she said.

But, on the contrary, skill, technique and dedica- tion are as much a part of golf as with any other sport. MFor my first year in golf, l did fairly well. ltls not just a matter of hitting a ball. You have to develop a technique," Joshua Price said. Golfers worked hard to improve their skills. Practice often lasted from 3 p.m. until dark. Sunset Golf Course, Las Collinas Country Club, Fritz Park and even the school cafeteria were among the most com- mon practicing grounds forthe team. The team went through a series of video tapes and cassettes on the technique of golf. Improvement of equipment also took place this year. The booster club provided funds for the team's new bags, shirts and sweaters. 'lAlthough our season was not suc- cesful, l was really impressed with the spunk and determination from the freshman as well as old members. lf they continue to show this much effort, we should have a pretty good golf team by next year," Coach Eddie Dowler said. lneligibility, like with all sports, became a problem for the Nimitz golf team. Girls were unable to place in district because of the lack of players. "We did so well at district, with just one more player we could have gone to regionals, and because of the lack of players, Irving went instead of us, which made it even worse," Heather Barnett said. Ending the season unsuccessfully did not seem to be as disappointing. The team proved to be hardworking and dedicated. Regardless of the faults, Dowler and his team have established a good relationship. "He's not just a good coach, he's a great friend. I wouldnlt trade him for the world," Joey Dugas said. l'Hels kind of like one of the guysf' Rene Gonzales added. With high hopes in mind and clubs in hand, the team will try once again for success.

The team has changed coaches four times over the past three years, but now a new coach has undertaken the job. Ever since the middle of the sum- mer, talk of a new baseball coach aroused interest of booster club parents and players. "Everyone was real enthusiastic about the coming of a new coach. We were all wondering what it will be like to have a coach formerly from South Grand Prairie," Ricky King said. ln September, Coach Terry Baker began his task of rebuilding a team full of talent. "Coach Baker concentrated most- ly on fundamentals in practice. We learned the correct ways on how to hit, throw, catch, and everything else involved. We were tested on what we knew by being placed in different situations in the infield. Overall, we had better work habits than in the past," Brent Green said. . J Manager Cathy Coker added, 'll like Coach Baker. He seems to real- ly care about the team. He is work- ing the players real hard, and he really wants them to win. I think he's the best coach we have had in a while." Baseball team began the preseason by winning three of their first four games. The team's outlook for the rest of the season was bright and enthusiastic. However, they hnished the season with a 7-I6 record. It was not yet a winning season, but just as important, many accomplishments for the future that can lead to nothing but good for the baseball teams. After years of adjustment to the new coaches, players and stressful situations, the baseball team has finally settled down in a stable environment. Along with their new coach and a little leadership, that environment should prove to payoff in the years to come. Robby Rector 'i"':fg5-.QQ ,I , , a, 4 Q W I i -,vvg xj V ' i LV . I I ,.

JV Baseball BW coaches make a difference Aajusting to a new coach was not easy, but JV players seemed to do well considering all the changes espite the large number of freshmen on the JV baseball team this year, high spirits helped the team start the season off with a series of victories. With these victories behind them, they thought they could dominate all other rivalries, but something went wrong and the team went on a long losing streak. While most of the other teams were playing with a team compos- ed mostly of sophomores and juniors, Nimitz' team mainly con- sisted of freshmen. Besides having a young team, they also had a new head coach, Coach Terry Baker. The players not only had to learn to play on the held with each other, but they also had to learn the way that a new coach wanted and expected them to play. "Between games and practices, the baseball players devoted several hours to baseball. Their hard work helped them all to improve in one way or another. Even though they did not have a lot of victories, l i il think their season was extremely successful because everyone was given the opportunity to play a little in each and every game," said Coach G.W. Melton. Although the baseball team did not have Saturday practices, they put in several hours of practice during the school week. On some Saturdays, they devoted the majority of their day to the baseball team because of play- ing double headers. Also, while most teenagers were on springbreak and relaxing, the baseball players were out on the baseball fields playing in games which had been previously scheduled. "l think Coach Baker is looking forward to having the majority of these players contributing to the var- sity baseball team next year. l also believe that they will do outstanding as a team next year because so many of them have a lot of potential and great work habits and Coach Baker seems pleased with them," said Coach Melton.

Ell89ElV Baseball Managers and Trainers It' always a tough job But sarnebadyis gotta do it and the Viking team managers and trainers make it all look sa easy hether its football, soccer, baseball or swimming, the team managers and trainers have many different kinds of responsibilities. t'We have to carry the bags of balls from the locker room to the gym and back again every morning so the girls can play," said volleyball manager Lori Ferriman. The managers and trainers are re- quired to be at all of the practices and all of the games just like the players. I'We are just another part of the team. When one of the players needs a sip of water or a towel or anything, we are there to give it to them. We always encourage the players and cheer them on,', said varsity football manager Mark Irwin. HWe are required to attend every meet. That way we are always there for the runners and ready to help and aid them in any kind of situation," said cross country trainer Stacey Vaughn. Most people think that being a as W. f ' manager or trainer is just a blow-off. But then again most people havent tried it. l'lt is a hard job with a lot of hard work. It's not an easy job, but it does have its advantages. We are always included in everything the team does, and despite the work, we have a lot of fun," said volleyball trainer Barbie Gonzalez. HPeople ask me if being a manager is fun and I say yes. Then they'll say something about how all we do is sit on the sidelines and watch. If thats what people think, all l can say is they should try it and then tell me that's all we do." said Irwin. Many non-athletes are drawn to being team managers and trainers because it allows them to be involv- ed with the team, even though they don't participate in the game. Ulf you're really not good at any sport or you just don't like to play, then maybe you should manage. It really is a lot of fun," Chris Lindman said.

This was the phrase by the time summer practice was over the Vikas knew very well and hated very much. For the entire month of August, Vikas were in the parking lot from 7 to 10 a.m. kicking, learning new routines, and kicking even more. "By the time summer practice was over, I was so sick of kicking that l was ready to have my legs amputatedj' Jennifer Anderson said. Though summer practice was, for the most part, long, hot, and tiresome, it did have its good moments. Events such as the foot- ball player pick added some excite- ment. Each member picked a varsity football player to call her own for the football season. Each week before the game they gave each other gifts for good luck. The most popular gifts were candy and cookies. f'Picking a football player was neati lt gave us a chance to really show the team our spirit," Kim All the hard work and dedication paid off when Vikas were invited to participate in the halftime activities of the Peach Bowl during Christmas vacation. The invitation came as a result of the captains' performances during the TWU summer camp. Unfortunately, along with excite- ment and anticipation, the Peach Bowl trip required a lot of money. Thus, the Vikas set out to earn their way to Atlanta. With car washes, a spaghetti supper, jail and car smash at the car- nival, and much more, fundraising took up the majority of the year. On January 2, the Vikas performed at the Peach Bowl in Atlanta, Georgia, thanks to the more than 356,000 that was raised. Aside from bringing the '87 season to an end, November and December also introduced the new '88 Vika squad. The tryouts, which were held on Wednesday, December 16, add- ed many new members and left the Vikas with a new 92 member line. Hammond said.

Cheerleaders giue their all to keep up school spirit during the year with their encouragmg motivation -I-C-T-O-R-Y, victory, Vikings, victoryi Friday pep rallies and games just wouldn't be the same without the motivating and enthusiastic spirit of cheerleaders. Throughout the year, they showed spirit, encouraging and emphasizing it at pep rallies and games. "I really feel privileged to be in cheerleading, and l want to set an example for the school," Holly Bennett said. Cheerleading involves hard work and motivation, and it is a very time consuming activity for those in it, although most people donlt realize just how much work it involves. "We cheer from football games to baseball games and all other sports in between," Susan Waggoner said. Even though the cheerleaders agree that it is a sport of exertion and demanding concentration, they always have their fun cheering. "Cheering is so much fun because the group l work with makes me laugh and have the best of timesi" Aymie Becker exclaimed. "We get real close in cheerleading and enjoy being around each other," Kim Whitten said. Over the summer, the cheerleaders demonstrated their school spirit when they competed in the Dillards School Spirit Competi- tion. They were one of the finalists of this at the UTA Maverick Stadium. ln addition to this, they were also the winners of all Superior ribbons, spirit sticks and nominated for the award of excellence at the SMU National Cheerleading Association Camp. Along with raising school spirit, other goals of the cheerleaders are trying new and challenging things. 'Doing new stunts and cheers is one of my favorite parts," said Tammy Eby, uCheerleading has been a really good experience for me and I hope our school spirit grows." With all the school spirit, hard work and dedication the cheerleaders had, pep rallies and games were full of anticipation and excitement.

Outside Sports It' a wide world of sportsters After practices in the gym or on the football Helal where do we go-the softb ver wonder if there is life after school sports? For some, this is a dangerous question to ask, but others would agree. During the school year, students grow accustomed to going to football games on Friday nights, attending basketball games on Tuesday and Thursday nights. However, some students spend their athletic time and sweat elsewhere, such as the softball diamonds at Southwest Park. "I play softball because it is an exciting sport, and it offers girls the chance to display their ability at a sport that is not offered to us in schoolf' Jeannie Bush said. "lt also provides scholarships to the players that are good enough and stick it out," she added. Another popular sport for both boys and girls is club soccer. lt too allows the students who are not ac- tive in school sports for whatever reason a chance to show off their talent and be noticed. Club soccer is just one of many .5 A g.,Y,.. .. .-r.i f .

"Playing club soccer gives me the recognition that would not be offered to me in school. lt also allows me to display my ability and talent during the games," James Dias said. Some students, even though they are involved in some school sport, often gather friends together and play football on Sunday afternoons without the benefit of coaches and referees. "Playing football on the weekends allows me to increase my agility and stamina in order that l will be in shape for the coming baseball season," Aaron Flinchum said. No matter if it is during school or out of school, many have a particular sport and are able to display talents and abilities through the many organization offered in the city. lt is just a matter of discovering the right sport and putting forth an effort.

Bite your nails, daydream in class, dip snuff, or indulge in any other bad habits? Whether a habit is biting nails or talking too much, it can sometimes be embarrassing and troublemaking. "I bite my nails, but it does not look good and it is a social none," said Lisa Richardson. So Mee Kim confessed, "I have many bad habits, but I guess that is normal. If all the world was perfect, we would all lead pretty boring lives." Some people have a habit of always putting themselves down, dwelling only on negative aspects about themselves. t'According to my friends, I put myself down constantly, saying negative things, like 'l'm ugly,' " said luran Han. "My worst habit is I tend to think like the world or like other people, instead of how God intends me to. I think if other people and I keep in mind the goodness in ourselves and others and Gods purpose for mankind, we can achieve perfection, or at least better manners," James Mining said. People may think that they do not have a bad habit, but no one is perfect. 'Dawn Shelton lj2l6ElBad Habits P en fe ' si I .. ,.

For a fundraiser, the juniors approached the October car wash in a different way, offering a complimen- tary carwash and receiving pledges and tips. Passing drivers were lured into the free car wash by signs and clowns and lots of hard working and very wet juniors and sponsors. 'The biggest success of our car wash can not be measured by the money we raised alone, but rather in the number of juniors who turned out to have a couple of wet days and fun in the sun," head sponsor Ms. Helen Bradley said. Another success for the junior class was the Lock-In at the Golden Triangle Bowling Lanes, The Lock-In was opened to the entire school. "I was having so much fun, I didn't even feel the time fly by. When the Lock-In was finished, I was awake enough to go out for breakfast with some friends," Sean Harpole said. As the year ended, juniors agreed it had been a great warm-up for their senior year.

Although it is often the object of ridicule, many students look forward to it by the end of third period. 'By second and third period, l am so hungry! My stomach starts telling me that anything will taste great," Diane Lunsford said. When stomachs start growling and mouths begin to water, even cafeteria food sounds good. The lunch line, snack bar and salad bar are packed daily with hungry people. The popularity of the snack bar grows every year. "I like the snack bar better than the cafeteria line because the snack bar senies junk food. I mostly eat cheese fries," Kathy Coker admits. While hot foods is always available in the cafeteria lines, many opt for the convenience of candy bars and drinks from the machines to save time and catch up on studying or the latest gossip. Even though it is often criticized, the cafeteria food satisfies a large number of the student body. -Janet Maclfay .sf I IIN .'

K ou're late!" screams an angry parent when a son or daughter is late getting home. Most teenagers have a certain time when they are supposed to be home at night on weekdays and on weekends. That dreaded time is known as their curfew. "My curfew on weekdays is about 10 pm, and on weekends is 1 am," Scott Gutkowski said. Although teenagers sometimes think that a curfew is embarrassing and childish, they usually obey it anyway, knowing that trouble lies ahead of them if they don't. "lf someone my mother doesnt like brings me home after my cun'ew, l get sent to bed," Christy Bouma said jokingly. The ones who do miss their curfew, though, can usually come up with a good excuse to tell parents why they were late. "One of my excuses was we had a flat tire, and we had to put the little spare on. lt took us an hour longer to get home because we could only drive 25 mph on it," Johnny Turner said. Creativity is essential for coming up with the perfect excuse. Gullible parents help, too. 'Tonya Aldridge El231ElCurfews . Big Red . Extra , Bubble Yum 4. Wrigiey's 1 2 3 5. Trident B. Dentyne 7.

Getting through the day is almost impossible without someone asking for a piece of gum, lhere's usually someone in every class that has some. So what to do when theres no gum to be found? Bum, beg, borrow, of course. "I usually ask some girl. lhey've always got gum," Randy Fain said, Chewing gum in class can be a problem. Gum in the chair, gum under desk, even gum in hair.

His target, however, is not a freshman, but another senior. A spill may not be inherent to fish but caused by too heavy aload or a dump from someone else. lt is almost always follwed by a mumbled, "How embarrassing." Besides tripping on the stairs, dropping books or a tray, students get red faces when they are caught kissing in the halls. HI was totally embar- rassed when I was caught kissing in the halls, but it was worth it," Dasha Cain said. Often basic knowledge makes for the most embarrassing times. "I have sent a letter to a relative, but l've gotten it back for the third time. I keep putting my address where their address goes and their address for the return address," Todd Ruden said. "Its really embarrassing!" Whether getting caught kissing in the halls, falling or doing any other embarrassing things, others soon forget about it, even though the victim might not. How embarrassing can these things be? Very embarrassing.

"The most exciting event for me was just getting to the tenth grade," Doyle Brown said. Others considered being able to hang around with upperclassmen an honor, HI really didn't do much with the freshmen because I usually hung around with sophmores and juniors," Eric Gonzales said. lVlost students thought that Homecoming was the most exciting event in their freshman year. Homecoming became a exciting dance to show off new dresses and suits. It also encouraged students to have a good time and bring a date, 'll liked Homecoming.

Some people take the appearance of a car veny seriously, evaluating social attitudes, as well as ability to get from one place to the other. "Before I go out with someone, I always look at his car. If it is gross, then we take my car. There is nothing worse than being seen in a car that can be heard all the way down the street," However, some other students feel differently and only care about how it works. "I don't care what a car looks like or sounds like. All it has to do is run," Scott Fly said. Though many drive cars for the appearance, others care about interior features. "A car is not a car unless it has a good radio," Chris Brick said. Cars or trucks designate social status or place in a group. There is often a lot more riding on those four wheels than just back and forth to school every day. Michelle McFarland said. 'Robie llxford 1 Most Wanted 1 Cars . Ferrari Testarosa 2. Lamborghini 3.

Everyone seemed to have a most favorite and a least tavorite NFL team, lt has become a kind ot tradition to dislike some teams more than others. The tans, more than anyone else. keep the tradition alive with thelr signs. talkeand costumes. Some teams are disliked because ot their attitude toward the game. "The Chicago Bears are conceited. I dont llke them hecaose they are so stockopf' Amy Amondson said. Other teams' home cities are held against them.

For a freshman, starting high school can be pretty scary. They have it the hardest because they have to adjust to the new work load and high school enviroment. Getting involved in school activities can also be a hard obstacle to overcome. Then there are upperclassmen. Sometimes upperclassmen may make freshmen feel unimportant or like they don't belong, and there are always the upperclassmen reminding them Who's Who. "I hate it when upperclassmen cut in front of us at lunch and act like it is no big deal" said Kathi larnigan, But after all the rude gestures and comments and all the pranks that are played on these freshman, upperclassmen know that the new fish have arrived when they see them turn and laugh and flash one of those innocent fish smiles, let- ting the big kids know that they CAN take it with a smile.

One ot those long, boring world history lectures has just started, and some excitement is really needed. The thing students want most is to see the teacher mess up or do something embarrassing. Does it happen? Yes, teachers do have their embarass- ing moments. "During my tirst year ot teaching at Grand Prairie High School, I was giving a lecture, and I tell out ot my chair. I was very embarrassed," said Coach Alex Alkhazshvilly. Atter being embarassed, teachers react in different ways. "I always laugh at myselt. Everyone else is laughing at me so why not?" Mrs. Gwynn Shelton said. 'lWhen I do something embarrassing, I always cover my tace.

In the Student Code of Conduct, it is stated that "the wear- ing of shorts is not considered ap- propriate for secondary students," although many students have violated this rule. "ln my opinion, I think that the dress code is very fair to an extent. The part that is debatable is the fact that the girls can wear miniskirts but not shorts," Scott Schmitz said. The biggest complaint has been between the miniskirts and the shorts. Why are the girls allovved to wear some miniskirts that are considerably shorter than shorts? Because the Stu- dent Code of Conduct says so? ls there more of a distraction, if any? Other things that have been said to be distracting, therefore not allowed in school, are tank, Spuds, and Corona shirts. i'The vvhole controversy about not being able to wear tank tops is un- constitutional. The constitution states that vve have the right to 'bare' arms," lvlike Morris said.

During the holidays Sword and Shields Christmas tree was filled with farm animals. They took a special liking to the pig. To show their appreciation, they celebrated National Pig Week. The yearbook staffers did not choose their favorite pal. They were surounded by them since the first day of school.

Usual- ly they don't even card meg I guess it's there for a little reassurance," Robby Rector said.. While some people have ac- tual cards others can simply use their looks as means of fake identification. "Usually when someone doesn't know me, they think l'm older. l don't take advantage of that, but l know lots of students who do," Dena Parsons said. Of course, not everyone ap- proves of them. "Sometimes I think things are just better left alone. Those restrictions are there for a reason, and l'd just rather wait," Denise Reid said. The saying goes 'fnice things come to those who wait." 66 the best possible way to lose weight?" "Huh, well, don't eat anything at all." That is whats heard when listening to some of the comments made by students who feel the need to give up one the most impor- tant things in life, food. What they do not realize is that starving themselves only makes a person unhealthy. Yes, of course, there will be some weight loss, along with nausea, fainting, paleness and sudden mood changes. Some students do not want ey! What's to put up with that and choose to take a safer route and go under a doctor's supervision. "lt really makes a big dif- ference to have a doctor en- courage you. He taught me how to eat right, so that the weight you lose will be kept off," Clark Boley said. Whatever method people choose is up to them, but one thing that people should remember is that everyone needs love handles. Cl264CIOut of the Blue hy is everybody always picking on them? People think that just because a person is left handed they can not do anything RIGHT. "I didn't actually have a choice, so l"ll just continue to look everywhere for scissors," Brandon Power said. Of course, like anything else, it has it's advantages and disad- vantages. "One thing that bothers me is that the desk we have in the auditorium are made only for right handed people. I want equal rights," Russell Boone said. Most lefties are pretty proud. There are even stores that cater to them. "l've also noticed that the ratio of left handed people almost always outweighs the ratio of right handed people in my honors classes, if that tells you anything,"Boone said. ,L I 4g ,X 'sn-1 sq-,F cf' ome people persist on staying up late. The reasons vary from watching David Letterman to doing homework. The point is these students actually live to tell about it. "I drink anything with caffeine in it to keep me awake, but if I've stayed up past 3 a.m., there isn't anything that will keep me awake. l just sleep in my .Q--:X 'X classes," Troy Halberg said. Others say they have better way of surviving. "l've found the best way to survive is not to go at all," Stephanie Burgess said. Some don't even worry about it.

"I always try and get to bed by I0 or I'll be a grouch the next day at school," Shaunda Gardner said. Different people have dif- ferent ideas, but everyone or at least students have to do what they can to survive a day of school after being up all night oredom. What other time does a person go through this stage except during school? More specifically, dur- ing a lecture? Teachers may not realize it, but some students have to do something inconspicuously creative to stay awake during their lecture. "I ususally pretend to take notes, or I do something con- structive like other homework so I won't be rude by yawn- ing and drifting off to sleep," Michelle Price said.

The track team was on the side of the highway think- ing that they had to walk to their destination. "Luckily, the coaches were following behind us to the site of our meet," Chase Danford said. "We had a real good time waiting for the bus. With the food that we packed to eat at the meet, we had a picnic on theiside of the road," Dino Castillo said. he Junior Historians have assumed another title once a month since they have adopted a two mile strip of the highway.

A "The Junior Historians are an extremely active group capable of taking on a long term commitment to the State's beautification," club sponsor Ms. Helen Bradley said. What gets the group motivated enough to pick up trash? Some people might not think of picking up trash as a favorite pastime, but the Junior Historians are eager to do it. "We do fun things after- wards, like go out to eat at a Mexican restaurant," Billy Howell said. "Picking up trash is not as bad as you think. lt's fun to see what you can find in the pile of rubbish.

Well, the only one that has been proven to work efficiently is to take the day off from school. It is also commonly known as Senior Skip Day. "I didn't let my illness get the worst of me. One thing I did was go to the Water Gardens in Fort Worth and play in the water and eat lunch during the crowded lunch hour," Janet MacKay said. This event wasn't the first of the year. With all the absences from the last senior skip day, teachers were very harsh on the people who miss- ed school. Learning from past experiences, most seniors chose to come to school. "Surprisingly, I had one of the highest attendence records on that day," Mr. Larry Coltharp said. Some seniors don't even think twice about skipping. "I don't skip. It's hard to make up work.

One can probably guess how this person spends his weekend- watching anything on the tube. lThe common name for this particular breed of person is the Couch Potato. No one is quite sure exactly what that means, but everyone has their own interpreta- tion. "A Couch Potato is someone who would give up anything to watch TV, even a great date," Aymie Becker said. lWhy are people staying at home more and more? "Who wants to goto a movie at the theatre that you'll be able to rent for S3 for the whole family to watch. Don't get me wrong, though, I do still go to the movies, just not as much," Derek Terry said. lAnother reason are the shows that are being broadcast. "I watch more television these days because the shows seem to keep me interested. Back just a few years ago shows didn't seem to be as realistic. Now I wouIdn't classify myself as a Couch Potato just because I watch a little teIevison," Kim Morisak said. lWhatever the reason, the Couch Potato still lives. Is it a possibility that this could become a real serious problem, or is it just a phase? In the future will there be Couch Potato Hot Lines, or do we already need one?
