After School Sports
Those who participated in after school
sports were involved in golf or cross country
in the fall andjunior high or freshman
basketball in the winter.
Golf team metbers got sports off on the
right foot with an 8 win and 9 loss record. The
team missed going to District hy only 3
strokes when they participated in Sectional at
Ironwood. Curt Bandeen got ahe Eagle
Award in golf.
Cross Country team members participated
on an improved team. as they scored some
meets in the win column. lt was basically a
young team. George Bible earned the Eagle
Award for cross country.
Junior high basketball gave some exciting
moments as the 8th grade team took the BBC
League championship and brought home the
trophy. Seventh graders ended up in the
consolation finals of their tournament.
Freshmen posted a 7-6 record and among
the more memorable moments was the 33-31
win over Edon the second meeting for the two
this year. Most disappointing had to be the
35-34 double overtime loss to Pettisville
which knocked them out of the BBC

Girls Set Pace in
Spring brought disappointment
for the baseball. Rain cancelled
many games and an ice storm
cancelled a spring trip to Cincinnati.
Only 13 games were played and the
JV's had more games cancelled than
they played. Varsity season record
Todd Martin had both the highest
batting average and the lowest ERA,
was named to the BBC second team
and pitched for the Northwest Ohio
Coach's All Star game. Todd also
got the Eagle Award. Dave Rutledge
was named to BBC second team.
Girls track fared the best of the
spring sports. with Teresa Brown
and Diane Bible pacing the team.
The team placed 5th in the Blade
Relays and 6th in Sectionals. Eagle
Award went to Jill Deetz. Monica
Lanius got Most Improved.
Boys track consisted of many first
year runners, so hopes for the future
are high. Dennis Dohm got the
award for the Most Promising and
Brad Keough, for Most Improved.
For the first year most track meets

granted, some of those feet - along with their
bodies - went home and watched T.V. As
was mentioned in previous pages. others had
some sports practice or contest. Still others
went to work.
Then there were those who stayed after
school for some reason - pep club met on
Thursdays making signs and messes tonly the
latter weren't usually plannedj. They also
decorated for awards programs. Student
council and thejunior class could also be
found making and putting up decorations for

Boogie Down And

"Boogie down and hold tight. Get ready for
a Boogie Night!" That could have been the
motto of many North Central students for the
'77-'78 school year.
There was a time for work and a time for
play: and believe it or not. NC students could
be found doing both into the night. lt wasn't

l"'Rest Assured: 97
NC's drama department chose the play.
"Rest Assured" this year and it was
performed on the evenings of November 4
and 5. I977. This comedy in three acts was
about two fathers who continually fought
about the marriage of their children.
Tim Moore played Mr. Morelock who
didn't care about anything but money and
absolutely forbade his daughter to marry a
poor boy. Jerry Burt played Luigi Lanconi
who wanted his son to marry Mr. Morelock's
Several other NC dramatists backed up the
two fathers as the fight continued until some
very strange things - including the
appearance of "Lucifer" Uulie Stephens! -
happened to get Mr. Morelock to change his
ideas about money and to allow his daughter
to marry Luigi's son. The play ended with a
bang. leaving the crowd roaring.

N.C.'s varsity basketball season record was
I0-I2 this year. including tournaments. The
probable highlight of the season was the
battle against Stryker in sectional finals. when
Stryker was ahead at the half by only 2
points. Another bright spot - for a while -
was the Antwerp game at the end of the
regular season where the scorewas 47-47 and
the Archers broke the tie at the sound of the
buzzer tor was it after?J Perhaps the low point
of the season was the loss to Hilltop in a game
which saw the Cadets gain the lead after
being tied at the half and then go on to win by
3. Named to honorable mention on the BBC
team were Steve Ely and Todd Martin. both
of whom were in the top ten in scoring for the
league. Steve Ely got the Eagle Award,
Reserve team record pointed to a
successful year with I6 wins and 4 losses.
Highlight of the season may well have been
the Stryker games. the first of which showed
N.C, on top 47-45. One of the most
memorable games would probably be the one
with Ottawa Hills where thejv's really
"smoked" them by 40 points. Pettisville was a
real disappointment as two shots in the final
seconds failed to drop and the Eagles had to
chalk up a loss,

Six to Disirici
Joe Burkard led the young Eagles in more
than one way this season, after being chosen
co-captain with Tim Rickman. .loe brought
home BBC, Sectional and District Champion
titles in the heavyweight class. Six other
wrestlers survived sectional competition and
represented NC at District. New to the sport
this year were I2 matmaids who attended all
the matches and helped in scoring ajunior
high and varsity triangular meet hosted by
N.C. The annual trip to VanBuren brought
home several awards as well. Individual meet
record wasn't as impressive as tournaments,
however, as the team ended with a 3 win and
7 loss record. Two of those losses. however
were by three points or less and the team
wrestled all season forfeiting one weight class
at all meets. The team loses only 4 seniors
and 5 of those who participated at District
are underclassmen. The Eagle Award went
to Joe Burkard as did the award for most
pins, which was shared with Ted Frame. Ted

with a 9-6 record and only one game in

apparent as the Eagles had 7 returning

the hands of Pettisville and Fayette. it was felt
they were much better than those games

Seniors' Lives With
"You Light Up My Life" was the theme for
the 1978 Junior-Senior Prom held May l3.
The festivities began with a banquet in the
Kunkle gym. The dance featured the music
- and some added visual effects including
the use of dry ice and even a minor explosion
- of "Whirlwind" After the dance a change
of clothes was called for and it was time to see
the movie "The Sting" in the high school
auditorium - preceded by a couple of
cartoons. Finishing off the evening. or
actually morning. was open bowling at Bryan
Lanes until nearly 6 a.m.
Many hours were spent by thejuniors

Sunshine Water Pistols
and Fun Create
Thirty-six seniors enjoyed the sights of
sunny Florida from May 20 through 23. The
day before and after that they. and the 4
chaperones, probably had mixed emotions
about enjoying the 24 hour bus trip. The
water ski show and the gardens at Cypress
Gardens was their first stop. Next was
Disneyworld and all the delights of that
fantasyland. Monday meant Daytona Beach
and fun in the sun - at least until they felt
the effects of the sun. New to the trip this year
was a cookout at the International Inn, which
was their hotel for the trip. The final stop was
Busch Gardem at Tampa and after that
dinner at an interesting restaurant where they
were entertained with music on a huge pipe
organ. Hours of fun, mixed with trying to
keep from being in the firing line of a water
pistol, and trying to find a comfortable way to
sleep on the bus, will long be remembered by
the class of '78.

Superintendent Moves Up - T0 County Uffice
This year capped off I3 years of service to N.C. for Superintendent Richard Harpster, as he resigned
in June to accept the position of Williams County Superintendent of Schools. As an organized.
knowledgeable and dedicated administrator. Mr. Harpster was treated to a "remember when" session
after a dinner in his honor at the Holiday lnn attended by faculty members, school employees and
board members, both present and past.
Mr. Harpster, with the school board led by president, Bob Gamboe and vice-president Robert
Huffman, oversaw the improvements to the school buildings, including new windows and doors in the
high school aimed at energy conservation. School board members also attended their national
organization's convention to increase their understanding of school management. A levy needed to
meet operating expenses in the face of inflation was on the ballot in the spring, but failed. lt was
placed on the ballot again in August. Handling the money for the board, as in the past I3 years, was
' Richard Oxender, clerk of the board.
Rahman Dyer began the year at NC as high school principal and ended the summer as the new
superintendent. Mr. Dyer brought with him several years of experience which was evidenced in the
cooperation he inspired between faculty and students. Tom Balser again served as elementary and
junior high principal. among many other duties, overseeing the Read-A-Thon which was capped off
by releasing balloons naming the participant and the number of books read in the Read-A-Thon.

Phyllis Oyer. secretary to the superintendent. also completes several years of efficient service to North Central
,s she will be advancing to the county office with her boss. Phyllis. however. will be staying in the system at the
beginning of next term to "break in" the new superintendent. Darlene Bandeen continued to "break in" new
vrincipals as she served as secretary to the high school principal under her third boss in four years. Darlene also
nanaged to keep the class and club financial records up to date as well as brighten the day with her informative
nd sometimes interesting announcement sheet. Jo Clark served in a similar capacity as secretary to thejunior
iigh and elementary principal. She also was called on throughout the year to share her talent for writing poetry
with NC employees as several were honored with retirement dinners and other get-togethers.
Peqpormance Goals Highlighted by Faculty
Starting the year with another new principal wasn't as hard on the faculty as it
might have been in other years, since the only other new face greeting the students
in August was Jane Hill, who had been added on a half-day basis to keep up with
the larger number of students in the home economics program. With some
experience at N.C. behind them, teachers faced the new school year with a new
principal and a new requirement- choosing a specific performance objective to
work on in their growth as professionals in the N.C. schools. Almost as soon as
school began, so did membership drive efforts for the teachers, association, with
high school English teacher, Shirley Penner, stepping into the duties as president.
Sports and clubs kept several teachers busy as coaches and advisors, some
beginning this work even before the school year officially opened. Throughout the
year there were several non-classroom activities which added to the relationship
between the faculty and students, including the senior-faculty basketball game
fwon by the facultyj and the participation of some faculty members in the more
hilarious activities of the Home and Products' Show.

Lunch hours of less than a half hour, baked goodies in the office, forgetting to
listen to the radio on fog days, working on 2 new committees - extra curricular
activities and community relations - and meeting with students and parents
during conference periods added to the usual tasks of preparing lesson plans and
grading papers to fill out thejunior high and high school teacher's schedule.

With the first day of school comes the task of
driving the yellow school buses all over the
northwest corner of Williams County. On PALS
day, some drivers even got to pick up and drop off
parents on their route. Field trips and athletic
events meant extra hours for some drivers.
Fog days brought problems not only for the bus
drivers but also for the cafeteria personnel.
Decisions to close or not brought hassles with
what to do with the food, preparation of which had
to be started for some foods very early in the
morning. Special meals were also served by the
staff of the cafeteria at Thanksgiving and
Christmas and due to a mixup, things got more
"interesting" as someone forgot to dismiss the
seniors early for their special meal.
Teacher aids could be counted on to help

Seniors Score High
With Magazine Sales
Members of the class of '78 came back to school in August
and some were ready for graduation already. However, there
were to be several months of ups and downs before that
wonderful day, May 28, l978.
Even before the doors officially opened, the seniors were at
school. They came for their sitting for senior pictures. Soon
after. proofs arrived and the matter of paying for them
wouldn't be far behind.
It seemed that the year hadjust begun, and everyone had
barely enough time to get used to the old routine and a new
principal and already it was time to start selling magazines.
With their goals set high, many seniors made enough money to
pay for their senior trip. The next matter was where to go on the
trip. Florida was decided upon as the destination and the trip
would be made by bus - all 24 hours of it each way.
Seniors started earning honors early in the year. Laura
Houser was named 3rd runner-up in the Miss Ohio FHA
In the fall it was time for the school play and of course Tim
Moore could be counted on for a hilarious erformance alon
P Y S
with several other "characters" in the class of '78, There were
even some "devilish" pranks from Julie Stephens.
Seniors did well academically in the fall, with nearly 30 of
them making the honor roll. Some even managed all A's.
The new band uniforms arrived and for once this wasn't
something the last class or the next class got, but was really
something new for the class of '78.

Winter Brings Some
Problems for Seniors
Winter came and with it the winter sports. Traditionally the
seniors have sponsored the first sock hop of the year. However,
with the winter and all the cancellations, the seniors began to
wonder if there was ever going to be a "first sock hop of the
year." Homecoming brought the selection of Lori Motter as
Homecoming Queen and Angie Eckley as the senior attendant.
The members of the basketball team came through with the win
to make the evening one to remember.
To make more money for the trip the class raffled beef. With
the winter came snow and more snow and more snow. That
meant some school was cancelled. Seniors, along with
underclassmen, would have to make some of them up, but
luckily they managed to miss one which was tacked on to the
end of the year. Snow meant snowballs to some, and more than
one senior had a little problem with the white stuff.
Seniors brought home more honors as Joe Burkard and
Shane Sumner placed 3rd in the 4-County Tractor Trouble
Shooting Contest, Deb Mocherman qualified for the state
Americanism Contest. and Betty Grimm placed in the Voice of
Democracy Speech Contest again.
Seniors Eam Awards
Springtime brought the counting of days to an end and also
brought some more interesting events. Unfortunately the
seniors were unable to down the faculty, in the traditional
basketball game, but the game was close all the way. Dave
Mitchell and his RAG team got together for one final
performance. Then came the Home and Products show and
several acts by the seniors in the Variety Show. Who will ever
forget Dave Nixon's elephant calls? Spring also brought the
mini course day with seniors at last getting to be the first in line
to sign up. Horseback riding was added for the first time and.
of course. ever popular was canoeing.
Finally it was time to hand out all the awards. with the
seniors getting their share. Cathy Reeder was presented with a
scholarship by the county members of sororities. Julie Stephens
and Tim Moore got Drama Awards, Shane Sumner received
the highest award in FFA. Kathleen Brown took the
Outstanding Senior and Award of Distinction in her field at 4-
County as did Mike Wilder in his field, and Kathy Scott and
Dave St. John received the Outstanding Senior Awards. Many
other service awards were also given to seniors.

The End Came Fast for
The Class of '78
Senior exams were taken and it was time to board a bus for
Florida. Springtime had brought out the water pistols and even
these were packed for the trip. Fun in sunny Florida - well
unless you got too much sun - was the motto of those seniors
who made the trip. The day after the trip it was time for
graduation practice and the end was in sight.
One more major event was staged before the seniors got out
A the Athletic Banquet. Lee Steinke got the Outstanding
Athlete award from the Chamber of Commerce. Julie Stephens.
the Gamboe Sportsmanship Award, and Angie Eckley and
Curt Bandeen, the WBNO Outstanding Athlete Awards.
Graduation came at last, with Honor Students Cathy Reeder
and David St. John presenting their views. Curt Bandeen
presented the class gift of chairs for the auditorium. The
ceremony was over and happily the class tossed their caps in

members of thejunior class. Barb Boetz was
named Outstanding Junior and honored at
BGSU, Tammy Sickmiller ran for an office in
State FHA, and Barb Boetz, Susan Keil,
Becky Leslie, Brenda Sumner and Chris
Trausch were inducted into honor society.
The class was very busy with their candy sales
and nearly daily reminders in the fall to put
candy wrappers in their proper place. Spring
brought an end to concession sales at athletic
events but that was replaced with work on the
prom. Earlier in the year the class sold
stocking caps. Girls' State delegates were
Brenda Sumner and Tammy Sickmiller with
Chirs Trausch and Barb Boetz as altemates.

Sophomores Are Small But
When the sophomores returned to school in the
fall they looked around and noticed they were the
smallest class and seemed to be getting even smaller.
That didn't stop some of them from challenging the
other classes. Tim Ross decided his field was chess
and defeated all others who entered the annual
tournament. Susie Orcutt was chosen to represent
N.C. at the Hugh O'Brian Youth Foundation
Seminar in Columbus. Several sophomores played
on the junior varsity boys' basketball team which
chalked up I6 victories. The class chose Gwen
Whitis to represent them for the second year in the
homecoming court. In the spring Brook Bandeen,
Ted Frame, Sue Orcutt. Sharon Oyer and Scott
Sparks were tapped into Honor Society. Class rings
also came in the spring. A raffle was their major
money making project. Marv Anderson was again
their class advisor.

When school began in late August it seemed to many upperclassmen
that there sure were a lot of new faces around. The class of '81 entered
high school big in size and big in ambition. Darwin Krill took on the
challenge as their class advisor and their major money making project
turned out to be a car wash which had to be postponed because of
rain. This class proved to be go-getters as they joined clubs and sports
and also showed they could excel in academics. Craig Conrad brought
home the only superior from the state science fair, after he and another
freshman Connie Spencer were rated superior in the district contest.
Jamie Grimm, Amy Kwader and Roy Hylander also brought home
the only district and state honors on the scholastic team, Jamie in
General Science, Amy in English and Roy in Spanish.

To the Class of 78:
This page of advertising presents an irresistable opportunity to offer more than the usual
compliments and congratulations. We realize that graduation is a time when "good advice"
comes to you from all directions so - we,ll try to keep ours short.
CU Contrary to what you may have heard f these are the best of times and the opportunities
ahead of you are the greatest that ever existed. But like beauty, seeing those opportunities
depends a lot on the eye Cand the positive attitudej of the beholder.
Q25 You don,t necessarily need to travel to the ends of the World to discover your greatest
The people of this community, the mayor, council and businesses have been, and continue, to
work hard at bringing in new industry so that the young people do not need to leave the Pioneer
area to find what they are looking for.
We wish you the best of luck in whatever you do - and may you have fun doing it.
