nature that inspire the creation of art. f f 04
This year the Art Club has been studying forms, shadows,

vides a means of entertainment for the school community,
students, faculty, and parents, but also develops the dramatic
skills of each student involved. Through the varied efforts

appreciation for serious music. During the meetings the mem-
bers listened to the works of Beethoven, Mozart, Dvorak, and
other classical composers. Then they discussed the themes and
motifs and how they were interrelated.
This year the club was sponsored by Mr. Pritchard, who
led the discussions.
The Scarlet Letter was organized and published for the
first time this spring. Its aims are to develop journalistic talent
among the student body, create a liaison between the home and
school, and to promote creative writing.

was completed by students interested in journalism.

The Science Club was organized for the purpose of helping scien-
tifically-minded students further their interest in science. The club members
are each responsible for one project and a paper written about that project
during the year.
At its bi-weekly meetings the club members discuss or debate topics of
scientific interest, view and discuss films, or perform experiments to demon-
strate certain principles of science.
The club itself is a member of the Virginia Junior Academy of Science,
and its members are entitled to enter their projects in state-wide competition.

Coaches: Mr. Beasley
and Mr. Stuart
Captain: Geoff Jennings
The Raiders, under new head coach Mr.
Beasley, concluded the 1964-65 season with a
respectable 2-4-2 record.
Mr. Beasley, along with new assistant coach
Mr. Marshall Stuart, changed the offensive attack
from the "single wing" to the "T" formation.
Departing from the squad are Rand Garrett,
Geoff Jennings, Alan Moore, Kent Smith, and
Tom McMillan. Geoff, who was captain along
with co-captain Gary Loftis, finished third in the
City-County scoring race with 52 points. It will be
difficult to replace these five seniors, but it is hoped
that the advancing squad will compensate for their
Mr. Beasley and Mr. Stuart feel that the
Raiders' record was admirable, especially when
viewed against their size and the toughness of
the schedule. The coaches were pleased with the
spirit and determination of the team and have
high hopes for next year.

Under the leadership of Coach Johnson the
Raiders showed considerable improvement. over
last year with a 6-10 record.
Alan Moore, one of the three seniors on the
squad, finished fifth in the City-County scoring
race with a 17 point average and shared co-captain
duties with another senior, Kent Smith. Kent,
a 6'5" center, showed much progress over his
junior year. Rand Garrett, a 6'0" forward, was a
stalwart on the reserve bench. All will be missed.
With three of this year's starters being under-
classmen and a strong bench returning next year,
the prospects for a winning season are extremely

GI RLS' BASKETBALL
This year was the first time the girls have competed in interscholastic
basketball. Although plagued with inexperience, the girls worked hard and
long to lay the foundation for a better team next year. The team's greatest
achievement was their winning the "Best Sportsmanship" trophy awarded
by the league.
Liza Spessard, the team's leading scorer at forward, and Cindy Willis,
an outstanding guard, led the team as co-captains. The team was coached by
Mrs. Gaskins, who not only taught the girls fundamentals, but also promoted
team spirit and incentive.
