As you grow older your choices range from: de- ciding what to wear, doing homework, coming to school, selec- ting a oollege, and whether or not to do drugs. Making these choices isn't easy, especially making choices about drugs and alcohol. Realizing these choices were hard. Troy Garrison, the leader of the Celebration of Youth Workshop was brought in to aid us in making the right choices. "This workshop is about choices. You have a choice to become a victim by going out on Friday and Saturday nights doing things that could destroy you and your families lives. But you are in control here, not your parents or your friends, but you!" explained Troy. Another serious choice is choosing your friends, espe- cially if they do drugs. Having friends that do drugs can lead to serious consequences such as losing them as friends or losing them more permanently. Junior Sherman Miller discussed this matter when he stated, "I have lost a huge number of my friends due to drugs and alcohol. When I chose not to use drugs or alcohol they saw me as a threat to our friendship." Kids get kids into drugs, and kids get kids out of drugs. What will you do! Make a choice and face it!

F A C I N G l i t's two o'clock in the morning and you still have two more pages to type on a research paper due tomorrow. You know that you shouldn't have put it off until now, but there were so many other things you had to do. Now the equiva- lent of an exam grade hangs in the balance. The tension in your stomach fights the weight of your eyelids. Facing stress is an everyday event. Everyone has demands made upon them. It may be harder for high school students because of the newness of it. Now you have to worry about getting the grades to get into college, about playing well enough to get on the team, about play- ing well enough to be on a winning team. There never seems to be a quiet moment for yourself, to stop and find out who you are, to decide slowly and surely what you really want. Instead, life becomes a runaway ride on a carrousel gone crazy. Grades, dating, job, car, social status, and the looming question of the future all combine to make a heavy weight to carry. They make the face worn, tired, and give it the lines that come with maturity. The rea- son seniors look so different from freshman is not just that they are four years older, but they are tested and tried, by four years of stress. But, relax and remember that the seniors survived their time here. After all, just as the pain of working out gives you increased ability to perform, so do the stresses of each day give you increased strength to handle the next year.

As you get up each morning you have to decide what face you'll wear for the day. Actually, you'll need several faces, so looking in the closet you select several to take with you. Arriving at school, you slip into your "I am so cool face" as your friends approach. Later, as class begins you put on your serious "I am really getting into this" face for the teacher. When the teacher believes your face and asks you a question, its time for a quick change to your "never let them see you sweat" face. As the day goes on you hide your feelings behind the handy mask of your face, or use it to let the whole world know how you feel. Still later, an annual photographer comes along and you bring out your "I am really a ham" face with expressions your face seldom gets to make. Its fun to let your face have a moment of freedom. Then its back to work as you go to your bus and prepare to go home where you plan to let your face relax and just be a tired face after a long day's work.

School is not all work, there are fun times, times we'll remember long after we've forgotten how to solve for 'x' or what the eight parts of speech are. Fun has many facesg the faces of freshmen, sophomores, juniors, and seniors cheering loudly at a pep rally as the cheerleaders lead chants that make the pulse race and the voice hoarse: the faces of our opponents as our football team sweeps to victory on a cool fall evening while we snuggle with our boyigirl friend. Now that's fun! A major factor in the fun level of life is acquiring a driver's license. Usually sophomores experience this thrill and enjoy the freedom of not depending on a family chauffeur. Juniors have the delight jand agonyl of planning the prom. This so- cial highlight ofthe season encourages everyone to put on their best face land clothesj in order to make a memorable evening. Seniors have the ultimate fun of graduation. After four years of classroom lectures, homework, tests and exams, the anxiety of apply- ing to college, or looking for that first job it's time to take the diploma in hand and head for the beach! Freshmen, look what lies ahead for you. Wipe that smile off your face, you've got three more years! Most people think of school as all work and no play. When you look back on your life here at North, the memory of the work may fade, but you will definitely remember the fun and the faces.

In the student section, the faces re- flect the changes from young, small and naive freshmen to a bit older, larger and somewhat wiser seniors. At high school, students have grown through new courses and teachers, driver's education and sports, jobs, dates, standardized tests and planning for the future. The ways these challenges were faced caused internal and ex- ternal changes that may be seen in these faces. 1 . "-.1 5 ' . 'Q-ww... ..-:,..,:., 'F' Artistic faces.

Ithough the bloodmobiie might be the favorite hangout for those blood sucking creatures of the night like vam- pires and such, it is a vital event for many Americans every day. Many times life or death is determined by the supply of donated blood for victims of automobile accidents and various life- threatening diseases. Red Cross workers who sponsored the annual blood drive Feb. 23, 1987 said that most of the blood they get comes from school drives. Since donors must be seventeen years old to give blood, many of our donors were seniors. Students at North have traditionally led the county in collecting the most units. With a goal of around one hundred twenty pints, over half are given by first-time donors. First timer Krista Hicks com- mented, "Even though there was a little discomfort, I felt great because I was helping someone." Others, like Mrs. Sue Bryan added to their gallon totals. Students who helped set up, clean up and man the various tables in the gym were the Health Occupations classes and the H.O.S.A. club members. "We couldn't accomplish all of this without the help of the students," comments Mrs. Sally Hutchison, "and they learn a great deal in preparing for the bloodmobiie and working all day." Seniors who ignored their fear of needles and blood were proud of their unselfishness, realizing that they may have saved a life. As for the night creatures . . . they are out of luckg the donated blood goes straight to the lab for processing - there's not a drop to drink!

Term papers, college, scholarships, armed forces and job applications, I think l'm going to be sick! If you're a senior, you may find your- self being run-down by these symptoms of senioritis. Senioritis is a disease confined to in- stitutions of learning and usually takes four years to fully develop. The only known cure is a graduation ceremony, You can examine yourselffor symptoms ofthis disease by looking for the following. l. In the early stages, the victims of senioritis find themselves looking at calendars to check weekends and holidays. The victims then will be heard to mutter such phrases as "Can't wait until 'xf-""" Get your thirteen-and-a-halves off the table Steve Roof! Seniors tend to get more casual as lune approaches.

Anonymous photog- rup er the beach" or "I've had it with schoolwork, what's on at the movies?" Other early stage clues to this insidious disease are: daydreaming, sleeping in class, and star- ing out the window. 2. As the disease progresses, victims begin to think up elaborate schemes to get out of class. They may leave home, bound for school only to lose conscious- ness and wake up at the mall. 3. In the final stages, victims feel com- pelled to fill out SAT forms, college appli- cations, scholarship forms, and even take brochures for the military services. At last the victim can only be measured for a cap and gown before realizing the only cure - a stroll across the stage of Keppel Auditorium.

Formulas, coniugations and history facts swimming around in heads make normal con- versations impossible. lt's final exam time. But not for seniors! Most seniors would agree that the BEST privilege is that of exempting the dreaded final exams. Those seniors smart enough to come to school every day and! or make good grades avoided final exams. This reduced the pressure of having to pass the big test in order to graduate. Another privilege that the seniors en- ioyed was early dismissal for lunch. For seniors whose stomachs growled angrily begging for food, this was a blessing. As the rest of the underclassmen ran to the lunchroom doors only to be met by a long line of other hungry underclassmen, the seniors chowed down, savoring their se- niority. A sound the seniors waited three years for was that of "All rise for the seniors." As the seniors quietly filed into their assigned seats in the auditorium they were greeted with unfriendly ieers and envious looks from those who were stand- ing for them. This resentment was over- looked because this was the privilege that gave seniors the strongest sense of superiority. The privileges mentioned above are the obvious ones known by all seniors, but one not widely advertised is that of getting your way with the teachers. After twelve years of experience in the trenches of education, seniors know what Mrs. X ex- pects, what Mr. Y likes, and how to charm Ms. Z. How to be really slick as a senior is a privilege in itself. So how do seniors get this quality? They get it the old fashioned way, THEY EARN lT! lamie Sloan Although some would disagree that getting to eat CAFETERIA food first is not really a privilege, most seniors appreciate the opportunity to leave home- room a few minutes early to go to lunch.

Juniors have discovered a unique method of doing homework without the aid of a pen, pencil or brain. The object of the "Homework Game" was to make the grade without doing the work. As the deadlines for homework grew nearer, students began seeing images of the merciless teachers' greedy hands, grabbling for the homework assignments. After mental pictures like these, students began playing musical notebooks to get the work completed. Some even paid to let their fingers do the walking through unfamiliar notebooks. ln urgent cases, when no field trips or assemblies provided 38 f Juniors: F. Smith - Walker reasons to avoid homework, some juniors actu- ally attempted the work themselves during lunch. After waking up on deadline day with only a blank sheet of paper, juniors had to trick their teachers into giving them extra time by means of the EXCUSE. 'tl ran out of notebook paper and all the stores were closed because the city was in a blackout." "My brother and I were fight- ing onthe way to school today and he threw my homework out the car window." "My mother ran out of diapers for my baby sister, and my home- work and a roll of tape were lying nearby . . Although the end result was still a zero, teachers enjoyed the various stories and usu- ally stayed a move ahead in the "game" Jason Plummer. ln some classes, students are allowed time to work on homework.

The fact that once again, sopho- mores have elected all female officers was unexpected. These l"wise fools" elected as their lleaders: Monique Ruffin, president, lTracie Maynard, vice-presidentg 'Malva Clement, secretary, and Rhea Milton, treasurer. With no homecoming floats, class l f l l officers had to find a substitute for participation. Officers generated en- thusiasm through the building of dummies for class competition. Tracie Maynard expressed, "I wish that homecoming floats had not been taken away, without them, we really weren't that involved. " The sophomore class has again displayed their need to be different by electing all female officers. These ladies have helped to lead the way to a successful sophomore year. Steph- anie Michael.

FACING FEARS chool seems to take forever. As a student you find yourself always looking forward to the next step. Each step up the edu- cational ladder is filled with fear and desire. All those years you waited to be in high school, struggling through the lower grades, to finally ar- nve. It was like a dream. Emerging from the bus you would enter a world where everyone treats you like adults. Halls would be filled with people purposely mov- ing from class to class. That last thought causes a tvvinge of fearg how will you know where to go ? Suppose you look foolish in front of the upperclassmen? Suppose you can't find your classes, your homeroom, your locker? You've heard the stories: classes would be harder, tests and exams would be real killers, and teachers would show no mercy on the unscholarly. Also, what about initiation? You've heard tales about freshman hunting, about hazing and being degraded by the up- perclassmen. You know you can survive, but the thoughts of the unknown are still dis- turbing, Think positive, you tell yourself. After all, think about the freedom of lunch periods, of selecting some of your classes, of being treated in a more mature fashion, but best of all, it moves you one step closer to seniority.

Being a freshman is a dirty job, but there is no avoiding it. On the first day of school freshmen have to entertain upperclassmen by wandering through the halls looking confused and lost. lnnocently asking di- rections from upperclass- men, they wander away not knowing they are headed for the wrong end of the building. Freshmen have provided upperclassmen this kind of amusement for untold ages. Why do Seniors like be- ing seniors? Because they are not freshmen anymore and they don't have to bum rides to ball games nor be home by eleven. Freshmen, needn't de- spair. All things come to an end, and next year they will have a new job - being SOPHOMGRES! Next year they'll have the distinct pleasure of giving out the wrong directions. Yes, in the coming years they'll do fine, but until then they'lI have to continue being freshmen and getting no re- spect.

What a happy-go- lucky carefree group. As a freshman life is bliss . . . or is it? As a freshman you are the new kid on the block. Everybody wants to show you around and be your friend, right? The up- perclassmen go out of their way to make your high school experience a happy and eventful one! In reality, being a fresh- man can be at best awk- ward. In the beginning, you don't know where your classes are, or which lunch MOMENTS to eat, or even where to go and "hang out" before the first bell rings. Some freshmen reported such embarrassing mo- ments as falling down stairs ias seniors were going upJ and being late to class be- cause they went to F hall in- stead of G hall. Many expe- rienced the embarrassment of bad grades for the first time. Just as "time heals all wounds" the freshmen overcame their awkward- ness and with time, em- barrassed themselves less often.

No longer fearful and shy, they were veterans experienced in changing classes, getting through lunch lines, and writing their own blue slips. Without the anxiety of the first week of school, classes were easy to get to, stairs were less slippery and freshmen were more confident. They knew where to be, when, and what to wear. They had been to ballgames, club meetings and parties with their friends. They were less likely to embarrass themselves and glad of it. Many freshmen grew several inches taller, pounds heavier, and much wiser. No longer treated like children, teachers expected freshmen to act like young adults and most met the chal- lenge with only a few regressions. Although it took a couple of months to become Cavaliers, the freshmen learned the "ropes" and became active members of the student body.

CLUBS CLEAN UP n addition to the Octagon Club that washed activity buses, sev- eral clubs found a way to improve the looks of things around school. Club members worked after school and on teacher workdays to clear up and replant the central courtyard. Each group had an area to work with and decided on and bought the plants they used. Industrial Arts students built attractive borders with logs to separate the planting areas from the walkways. Using the advice and actual plants of some teachers, by the time cold weather arrived, new trees, shrubs and perennial plants were in the ground. The organizations worked on many other service oriented projects during the year, but most who participated in the courtyard cleanup felt good about the liv- ing results of their efforts. :if-i rs.-Q, QW 64 X Organizations Voting and volunteering are the main agenda items during most club meetings.

A club that has potential. an you imagine riding around in a dirty bus with words like "wash me" and "back off" stenciled in the dirt? Well, theOctagon club did you a favor. In October they took time out of their busy after- noon schedules to wash the activity buses so you could ride to ball games and on trips without the embarrassment of slang remarks written all over it. Do you remember the twisted, dead and ugly plants in the courtyard? Thanks to the Octagon Club tin conjunc- tion with other school clubsj the ugly courtyard is now lush greenery that will invite you to be in the presence of it on a warm sunny spring day. When Regina Perry was asked what was the best thing about the club she stated, "So far this year the Octagon Club has enhanced my desire to beautify my school and its sur- roundings. l hope my attitude rubs off on more students so our school can be a showcase to the public." The Octagon Club could be for you if you like improving your surroundings and feeling good about yourself. Chad Cook took time out to say "I feel the Octagon Club really has the potential to become one of the best clubs in the school. All it will take is more participation from its mem- bers." Amy Hammond plans for future activities.

With 49 active members and a busy advisor, the club accomplished many special projects. The year began with dedi- cated members joining the club. "lt takes dedication and hard work to be in the Key club. The club sets goals and goes after them," stated Angela Locklear. Helping at the Autumn Jubi- lee was one of the group's first endeavors. Another project was selling carnations during homecoming and on Valen- tine's Day. The club also planted a section of the court yard. During International Key Club Week the club held an Honor Tea for all students who made either A or B honor roll. The same week, some of the club went to advisor Delores Morris's church as a group. The club really shows en- thusiasm and exuberance. Being the third year for the club, all the members have shown dedication. Delores Morris said, "lt really is a pleasure being advisor of the club and working with students who put forth the ef- fort to help others." Angela Locklear Key Club l 69 D.E.C.A.

The club is open to all students en- rolled in any of the courses offered by the Marketing Edu- cation Department tcourses taught by Bell or Siwinskil. The purposes of DECA are to de- velop education in marketing which will contribute to occu- pational competence and to promote understanding and appreciation for the reponsibi- lities of citizenship in our free, competitive enterprise system. DECA is one of our school's most active organizations with a full calendar of activities year round. DECA began this year with election of chapter officers and individual class officers. A candlelight cere- mony was held in the school li- brary for installation of officers and induction of new members. DECA members designed an exhibit for the Rowan County Fair using this years DECA theme: "Free En- terprise in Building Your Fu- ture" to emphasize the three parts of Marketing Education: class, on-the-job and DECA activities. Students attended the following district activities: Leadership Conference at Wingate College in October, Officers Training at Sun Valley High School in December and Competitive Events in Salis- bury Mall in January. DECA members attended their 3 day State Career Development Conference in Charlotte in March where they were presented the three star Roses Chapter Activities Award for outstanding chapter participation in the yearly program of youth acitivity. The highlight of the year was the twelfth annual Fash- ion Show presented to the student body in April.

Mrs. Anne Briggs, one of the advisors said, "I enjoy teaching French this year, I am learning along with the students." The other advisor Mrs. Elizabeth Bartlett en- 72 I French Club joyed sharing students and club duties with Mrs. Briggs. The club went to Ft.J. Reynolds High School in Winston-Salem to see a live theatre production of "L'Avare." The story, about a miser, was done in both French and English. Mary Weeks said, "I really enjoyed the play, it was very interesting." lf Le Circle Francais members ever go to France, they will have an advantage over the students who didn't take French. They would be able to order correctly in a French restaurant and avoid the embarrassment of a waiter bringing a burning towel in- stead of real food! Senior Paul Blount made the trip to France last summer to live with a French family. "It really wasn't too hard to com- municate," said Paul, "and I had a terrific time." Hopefully more club members will be able to expe- rience French culture first- hand in the future.

You have to spend lots of money on sets, props, costumes, and the right to use scripts, musical scores, stage manager and direc- tor's books. David Crews, assis- tant director and actor of Oliver stated, "Being a director and actor takes lots of time and pa- tience. " That's just the beginning. After selecting a musical whose staging requirements don't ex- ceed the national debt, comes the trauma of auditions. Everyone wants to be a star, but a specific part requires a specific actor or actress. So for everyone who does get a part there are several people who have their hopes crushed. Now things begin to get really complicated. To produce a musi- cal such as "Oliver", the director must have assistants who will train dancers, singers, and musi- cians. Then, once the initial scenes have been committed to memory, the actors must re- Q 1 -. -. Q. -Q -Q ,K -1 -an ws 'll un 'W is I .. 51 . at f---Newmgr 'Nm'-Q.

Producers need the courage of a terrorist negotiator, the patience that comes only with experience, and a stomach that can tolerate a lot of aspirin. Practice follows practice. Ac- tors continue to forget lines, miss their cues or hit the wrong notes. It seems that perfection is only a frustrating dream. Suddenly, without warning, it's opening night. The cast pulls together and the show goes on. The curtain finally goes down as the applause pours over the foot- lights. You've done it. You've been part of something so complex and challenging it seemed impossible, and now the applause sweeps away the last of the butterflies that seemed the size of 747's when the cunain first went up. Now you see why people do musicals. David Crews :MA In the leading role. Jason Perdue as Oliver gets help from primary chorus teacher Mrs. Norman and Ashley Cauble, pianist. Photo by A.

The club meets once a month after school. Do you remember those hot days at the beginning of the school year? The members helped relieve the heat by sell- ing sno-cones after school. The profit from the sale of sno-cones went to the Christ- mas Angel Tree Program at the,Salisbury Mall and to the Bearthes' family, former graduates of North, after the death of their mother. The club showed they were community service oriented through-out the whole year. They cleaned the trophy case in the lobby, along with doing other things in the school year. The club also helped the elderly clean their yards and members went to a Christmas party for the mentally ill at the First Methodist Church in Salis- bury, where they helped to pass out gifts and serve food. The Anchor Club contrib- uted more time to the commu- nity than most other clubs and considered themselves the number one club.

It was made up of students interested in a medical profession. In order to learn more about their future profession, the club attended several conventions. These trips included a tour of the health department and the state convention in Raleigh. The club also hosted the Region Vl HOSA competitive events here at the school March 4. This year the club has taken an active role in helping their school and community. Their many ac- tivities have shown their concern through such activities as spon- soring a blood drive in the school's gymnasium and held health screening for the entire student body. They also had a booth at the mall during vocational week, took treats to the children in pedi- atrics and helped the health de- partment core group by giving phone numbers to teens in the school, of people that they could talk to. All in all the HOSA club has been very busy this year. Be- tween conventions and school activities it doesn't seem like they would have much time for anything else but they did take the time to certify the HOE Il students in CPR. Way to go HOSA!

National Honor Society Intelligence pays off for top juniors and seniors he National Honor Society consisted of thirty-two top quality juniors and seniors. "The N.H.S. is one of the most prestigious clubs at North. " remarked An- gela Locklear. Considering the requirements, it was quite an honor to be in the club. The N.H.S. members set ex- amples for other fellow students to follow. There was a change in requirements for the seniorsg not only did the juniors have to have a 93 aver- age, but the seniors did also. The old inducted the new members in a candlelight cer- emony in November. They were inducted on a basis of service, leadership, character, and academic achievement. The N.H.S. was responsible for the "North in the News" bulletin board. The members took up money for the Chris- tmas Happiness Fund for the Salisbury Post. Nl feel that our most successful project was collecting money for the Christmas Happiness Fund. lt brought unity among the club members as well as the stu- dent body, and also benefit- ted the needy," expressed Stephanie Michael. Along with other clubs, the N.H.S. landscaped a portion of the school courtyard. The N.H.S. was responsible for the Honor Roll ribbons passed out after every quarter. In order to have the ribbons, the N.H.S. sold poinsettias in December to raise the money that it would take. N.H.S. members worked hard to become members and contribute as active part- icipants. Angela Locklear. National Honor Society J 83 A CLOSE TIE The A.C. T. members work together to serve others. tudents in the ACT put their beliefs into action by helping their school and community. The ACT was composed of young caring students who believe in helping others. "The ACT is a good opportu- nity to be involved in Christian activities outside of church and to share in these activities with fellow classmates," said president Krista Hicks. According to advisor Betty Crossley, 'fit is the more ma- ture student who belongs in ACT." The mature students spend their time and effort to take Halloween candy and Christ- mas fruit baskets to the elderly patients at local rest homes. The ACT members remember the true feeling of Christian fel- lowship at Thanksgiving by giving a dinner to a needy fam- ily. These activities benefitted both the ACT members and those they helped. ACT students worked together and became closer as they made days brighter for people who needed their expressions of kindness. Angela Locklear.

' . , I Q 1 I ' E A l LATIN CLUB A Dead language comes alive on't let it be said that Latin is a dead language because the Latin club proved it was not. One of the main events for the club was a trip to UNC at Asheville. The Fall Fo- rum was very competitive and the students that attended placed in several events. Some of these events in- cluded: track, chariot race, softball and frisbee throws, and swimming. The weekend also included lectures and an academic test which all students had to take. The Latin club students had two major Latin parties. One of them was a mythological mon- ster party where students had to choose a monster from Floman or Greek mythology and make a costume. Amy Hammond stated, "Pre- paring the monster costumes gave me the chance to learn and better understand Roman and Greek mythological mon- stars." In December the club had an lo Saturnalia party at Tara Jackson's house. The club sang Christmas carols in Latin and exchanged gifts. To add to the Christmas festivities the club sold candy and santa helpers to help raise money. The money went toward the annual J.C.L. convention in Chapel Hill. When Alison Smith was asked about the trip she replied, "The Latin trips are great opportunities to meet people, have fun, and learn more about Latin." The club also bought azaleas for the courtyard to help add liveliness. The Latin club had a great year and they hope they can continue the tradition. Leigh Millikin Q . Pulling for a victory.

Q MW 'l Leaders plan activities to get students more involved Student' Government ant to get involved in an exciting relation- ship? Want to be challenged, meet interesting people, make a difference in the world? Then the student council would have been the place for you this year. It wasn't a free ride, there was a lot of hard workin- volved. Regina Perry said, "lt takes concern and dedication toward the student council as a whole. Someone who can look at the tradition of the school and be brave enough to make a change belongs in the student council." It re- quired dedicated members who are willing to do such things as stand outside in the cold on a Friday night to sell cups and pom-poms at the games. It included planning for the powder puff game and home- coming to insure its success. The student council also collected money for UNICEF and food for the needy at Christmas time. Student council helped out students' social lives on Valentine's Day with heart to heart letters as well as provid- ing carnations to encourage better relations among the student body. The student council was a vital part of North Flowan High, continuing the tradition of a school that is active.

By the time the book comes out in May, the whole school has heard the belly-aching from year- bookers who gave up Saturdays and weeknights, and they've seen the blur of staffers running around to get interviews or just to get away form Mrs. Burgin and Mr. Crews. Why have a "show and tell" for those who have seen and heard it all? We risk being redundant and show ourselves for the same reason people periodically look through photo albums - we're FAMILY and we like to remind ourselves of the times we've had. Our family has grown from an unrelated group of twenty kids fparented by two aliens from an- other generationl to a closely knit group who could do anything - and frequently did . . . Like normal families we suf- fered through temper tantrums, missed curfews fdeadlinesl and a few bad report cards. We enjoyed birthday parties, traveling lto workshops, around town, and to Hunter Publishingt, and playing trash can basketball. Whether any one else cares or not, the people on the Northern Lights staff feel fortunate to have been together this year, and we consider this yearbook creation our family album for 1988.

'P v Q 3 fm f ,nw 4 .. i k A ,,.,..0ws-Q-""' "X K W TEREOTYPE TEVEN hile figures don't lie, liars figure." Mark Twain was once heard to comment. Well figure this. Here are some figures com- piled about a day in the life of a student . . . Did you realize that the average student, in this case Stereotype Ste- ven, starts his day at 7:00 a.m. while 55.670 of his friends choose 6:30 a.m. and the other 44.470 choose 6:00 a.m. After Stereotype Steven finishes getting up he will probably eat his fa- vorite breakfast, which is cereal, sit- ting there he realizes that 55.2'Vo of his friends are munching on pancakes and 44.870 of his lesser acquaintances are eating biscuits. Then immediately after breakfast Stereotype dashes out the door and hops into his favorite car, a Camaro, and turns on his favorite radio sta- tion 97.9 WPEG. On the way to school he sees 61.746 of his friends driving Mustangs, and the other 48.370 must be rich for luckyj be- cause they drive Lamborghinis. On the way, 91.370 tprobably the ones who drive mustangsl Jam to 98.7 WKSI and a few other f8.7tyo to be exactl listen to 92.3. When our model student finishes a few classes at our great institution of learning, he will get hungry. Therefore, he eats, but what does he choose? HP nhnoses ham- burgers from the cafeteria, while No this isn't Sterotype's Camaro, it belongs to Greg Williams, with Dan Livasy riding shotgun. Photo by A. Kluttz. 62.570 of his buddies, who are not so picky, eat whatever is there. 37.5'Vo of the people he knows must not be good friends because they don't eat lunch with him in the cafe- teria. When school is over he is hungry again tThose afternoon classes are real killersl. Where does our stereo- typical student head? He heads to get himself another hamburger. He also invites his friends to go along, but only 347, tag along to get a cheeseburger. The other 6670 choose to go get pizza. About this time he decides to go home. What does he do at home? He checks out the tube to see when his favorite T. V. show comes on. He finds out that the "Cosby Show" comes on at 8:00. While he is wait- ing he goes and kisses his mother for fixing his favorite dinner, steak. After he finishes watching the "Cosby Show" he calls up 62.570 of his friends to find out they watched "Growing Pains" and the other 37.570 of his friends that he didn't call, watched "Alf". As for dinner, 62.570 enjoyed pizza as their culi- nary delight and chicken was con- sumed bythe additional 37.570. Since 55.604 of his friends go to bed at 10:00 p.m., he had to get off the phone by then. As for the remaining 44.4'Vo they go to bed whenever. So by 11:00 p.m. Stere- otype Steven finishes his day. Our information about Stereotype Steven was gathered from a student survey. Any similarity between his story and actual hap- penings is purely intentional.

Okay, maybe these things don't happen every day. Unless, of course, you spend your days in the movie theatre. The film industry is constantly producing more movies based on fantasy and unrealistic events such as playing babysitter to a bigfoot like the Henderson family so willingly did in the 87 movie "Harry and the Hendersonsf' Not many people would take a monster into their home and treat it as one of the family. And it is not every day you come in contact with a man- eating, blood-sucking plant, as in Steve Martin's hit "Little Shop of Horrors." According to avid movie goer Michael Gobbel, the latest movies have been, "So unbelieva- ble they are hard to enjoy. You can't relate to things thathardly ever hap- pen." Not to say that they can't. Why pay four dollars to see a far-fetched, off the wall movie when the makings of a box-office smash are already surrounding you? Strange and far- fetched things that parallel movie happenings also happen to high school students if you just look around.

H l Causing and relieving stress ou're sitting in class taking notes on facts you know will be on the next test. Behind you a young man chews on a pencil while to your right a bubble pops softly over the bubble gum chewer's face. Ahead of you a girl twists her hair. tYou are surrounded by poor unfortunates who have acquired habits.l Annoying habits are easy to come by but so hard to get rid of. If only medical science could come up with a cure for bad habits, short of electric shock treatments! The common cold will probably be cured before such common bad habits as described here. Have you ever had a conversation with a hair twister? Annoying, wasn't it? There you were try- ing to talk but your eyes kept going up to their fingers twisting through their hair. As you continue to converse, the suspense mounts. Will they pull their hair out? Will they be bald before they gradu- ate? They are probably not aware that as tension and frustration mounts, hair knotting begins. You know that they are not listening, even when they say they've heard every word, but they can- not repeat a single word you said. This person is the chronic day-dreamer. With scores of things on students' minds - academic and otherwise - al- most everyone can identify with the day-dreamer. Have you ever loaned a pencil to someone who returned it in such a condition that you were sure it had been attacked by beavers? Pencil chewers destroy thousands of pencils every year, leaving behind disgusting, wet stubs of wood. Although a helpful tool for relieving stress, the pencil chewer obviously didn't listen when his mother told him about all the diseases he could catch by putting unsanitary objects in his mouth! Don't they know that besides raising the risk of cavities, they also standing the chance of having that bubble pop all over their face? So what if it pulls their eyebrows off? They grow back, right? Maybe it is just an amusing way to entertain them- selves, or feed their sugar habits. Many of these habits seem to have therapeutic effects for the individuals involved, but can create stress and annoyance to others around them. Megan Weaver Habits i 105 Always on the phone.

Jones. s nervous sweat rolls down your face, you dart to that heavenly place that will get you away from it all - YOUR ROOM. A place of security, warmth, fantasy, it is also most often a disaster area. But would you have it any other way? No! Sitting on your bed, you sense it beginning to float higher and higher to a place where no parents have gone before - The Bedroom Zone. This is the place where you can be the winner of all arguments, the rock star or famous actor, and the creator of many fantasies. Some parents would just love to be a fly on the wall to catch a glimpse of you behind those four walls. 'fActually my mom would rather not come into my room, explained Chris Crowell, "because the mess is too depres- sing for her. lf your room could talk, it could tell more about you than anyone else in the world. It has seen you asleep, awake, happy, sad, hysterical, silly, and occasionally serious. lt is about the only thing a teen- ager can call his own. Parents can't violate it and brothers and sisters dare not step one foot into it. Chevelle Jones said, "lt's MY room and my sister knows better than to come in." Although family members are forbidden, pets and friends are usually allowed in. Your friends enjoy seeing all the new things you've done to your room and sometimes help with repainting and poster hanging. The main reason you enjoy being in your room is because it is a refuge from all the troubles of the world. It has the ability to soothe feelings bruised by others. Those others are often told to "Get outta my room!" Tammy Norris 4:-.M Wibff -.1 fi' P' 3 . ,xt , ,fm ' .ILL Some study in their rooms.

If they did, they would become as routine as brushing your teeth in the morning. The infrequency of these events combined with the essential factor of laughter came together to make these m9lTl0l'8bl6 occasions Out of the Ordinary Raisin Dan Yes, Chad Queen is doing more than breaking the monotony of an assembly. Dressed as California raisins, twardrobe by Heftyl and dancing to Marvin Gaye's ver- sion of "I Heard it Through the Grapevine," the annual staft found a unique way to promote yearbook sales. The message was that students should not count on hearing what goes on through the grapevine, they should buy an annual. Sports reporter Jim Young said that he "never had this much fun selling things before." Photo by T. McNeely. - l l f2slVQ Who ever said school was all books and lec- tures? While some students work well with tra- ditional methods, others are happiest when they are investing time in things that require more of a creative input. Chris Weaver, who won first and third places in the Spring Art Show for his photography, believes that "doing something creative can take your mind off things long enough to let you relax and enjoy yourself." Pictured with Chris are some of the other art show winners Eddie Riley, Luther Phifer, George Shuping, and Suzanne Dagley. Photo by B.

The '87 Prom, with the theme "Come Share My Love," gave juniors and seniors a chance to lead a more glamourous life than usual. The elaborate pre- prom dinner, the expensive gown and tuxedo, and a dance in the transformed gym made the occasion special. Prom queen Alicia Smith said, "I almost decided not to attend this year's prom, but l'm sure glad I did." Photo by B. Burgin. Who wants to spend their summer vacation attending classes, listening to teachers, and doing homework? Most teenagers use their summer break to relax and escape the structure of the classroom, but a few students took advantage of some of the many summer programs offered throughout the state. With leadership and yearbook camps plus other seminars, senior Darrin Turner complained, "l was only home about two weeks all summer!" F.H.A. club members helped prepare and serve the banquet honoring these dedicated students in September. Photo by B. Burgin. Current events usually presented at school deal with the crisis in the Middle East and political scandals, but rarely involve the fashion industry. Last year's "Walk This Way" fashion show previewed the latest designs in sportswear, swimsuits, and formal wear. "l enjoyed being able to model clothes l don't getto wear everyday, " said Alison Smith, the fashion merchandising student shown in the photo to the left wearing a gown from Bridal Boutique.

Af- ter all, not every "unpleasant experi- ence" happens to everyone. For some it may have to deal with getting a date, like Melissa Sec- reast who said it's a bummer when "I meet this really good looking guy and he stands up and is four inches shorter." For Carole Oakes it's a bummer when "You get a date with this real hunk of a guy and he shows up with his girlfriend." Most bummers are small ones that deal with basic every day ex- periences. Sleeping through your file alarm clock, a thunderstorm alter you washed and waxed your car, a power outage when you're working on a computer, and running out of gas are examples of such an- noyances. Others are a bit more extreme. Steve Stoner thinks it's a bummer when "You dive off of a diving board and your swimming trunks fall off. " An anonymous student said that "the ultimate bummer is getting a final grade of 68 in English."

However, the ability to take facts and break 'em down, build 'em up, apply 'em to new situations and create some- thing original with 'em is what high school should be about. In this computer age, facts are easy to come by - information from the world's libraries can be accessed from the home computer. School is becoming the place to teach where and how to get the facts, but more importantly, how to use them. Although all the courses at North are not considered "academic," in the sense that they all provide tools to relate to, un- derstand andior manipulate the things around us, courses from Art, Auto Me- chanics and Phys. Ed. to English Chemis- try and Physics can be considered academic. After all, knowing thousands of facts only makes a person good at a "Trivial Pursuit." 118 i Academics Physics can be fun.

The new faculty members came from various back- grounds ranging from manag- ing department stores to work- ing as a mechanic. They all seemed to have one thing in common, though. They all seemed to enjoy teaching at North Rowan. Although, teaching was not all fun and games, students had a major impact on how much teachers enjoyed their work. As Mrs. Tara Davis commented, "North is by far the best school l've been as- sociated with. The students here are great, and they make working here a pleasure."

Burgin Not Pictured: Joyce Cline Charles Dunlap Bob Hundley ! Welcome Back! he 1987-88 school term started off for the teachers on a very positive note. A second annual break- fast in their honor welcomed them back from a short summer vacation. lt helped them ease the shock of taking up their academic roles after a summer of taking up many ac- tivities such as: painting, fish- ing, or being students them- se ves. lt also prepared them for the coming of a new and exciting year. The breakfast was prepared by the three principals: Dr. Joseph Nelson, Mr. Walt Baker, Dr. Joyce Sloop, and Mrs. Pat Corriher was in charge of the decorating. "The purpose of the breakfast was a type of welcome for the new teachers and a welcome back for the regular teaching staff " stated Mr. Keith Sutton, Data Processing and Keyboard teacher. The teachers all seemed to enjoy this pleasant time to- gether before getting down to the business of teaching once again. Chevella Lomax Faculty and Staff! 125 si fgimme Egreak!!! his year, students quickly found out that the best part of being in school was being out of class. Students were of- ten given a break from the routine class- room assignments and were revitalized by the "hands-on" experiences of field trips. "I feel that a field trip every now and then refreshes a student's mind and helps him or her to become more inter- ested in the course. It is also a great so- cial enhancement," commented Chevelle Jones. Although field trips were held to a mini- mum this year, this didn't dampen the spirits of many ecstatic students. "I think that since the number of field trips were cut in half, I started to take more advan- tage of this time by concentrating and asking more questions," expressed An- tionette Ford. Many teachers were often enthused whenever a field trip was planned. lt not only gave them a break from their daily planning schedules, but yes, they also learned something new. "I think they're great! It's a good learning experience for students. They see things in action instead Of words," suggested Mrs. Wilson. Many students took field trips for granted. Often times fun concealed the hard labor needed for their preparation. The phone calls, the counting of heads, the question of lunch, the arranging for transportation, and the spending of money were all necessary for a success- ful trip. As strange as it may seem, field trips were not all fun and games. Regina Perry Qin!! ,,.,.uqnnnnau: In trouble again. Not really.

This was discovered by many of North FZowan's students this year. Vocational classes were often enjoy- able and provided a much-needed change in the schedules of students. As Jamie Sloan said, "Accounting is fun. It shows me how to balance my money. It also shows me how big companies are run and how they budget themselves." But possibly one of the best aspects of vocational classes was that they provided the perfect opportunity to gain practical knowledge. Through hands-on experi- ences, students received a working un- derstanding of helpful information and developed skills they can use in real life. Occupational classes also gave students an idea as to whether they were suited for certain careers in order to grepare for the future. "These classes elp to meet the needs of the current job market by giving practical experience in the classroom," commented Mr. Sutton, who taught Data Processing and Key- boarding. "Lives revolve around jobs. Vocational classes eventuallv benefit our entire society," "expressed Mrs. Ramsey, who taught several business classes. Voca- tional classes gave self-satisfaction, taught important ideas, and provided val- uable skills. Through these courses, students can have successful and fulfill- ing futures because they will be prepared. Krista Hicks Vocational Classes i 129 Control by computer.

Starnes it 4 uuhle Eguhhle Until 31121 Trouble omputers were designed for effi- ciency and time-saving. But occa- sionally, even using the new, state-of-the- art methods seemed tiring and tedious for teachers and for students. One of the main t'gruoes" of using com- puter systems was the monotony of filling in the thousands of tiny bubbles used on Scan-Tron and S.l.M.S. machine sheets. Another disadvantage is, as Nicole Cor- pening stated, "lf you don'thave a pencil then you can't take your test on Scan- Tron." The advantage of speed, however, seemed to outweigh all other disadvant- ages. "I use Scan-Tron only for exams because it is faster. The disadvantage is you really don't know what the students learned," commented Mrs. Morris, a sci- 130 l Computerized ence teacher. The S.l.M.S. tStudent information Man- agement systeml machine also served as a great time-saver. This computer pro- gram was used to process attendance, grades, and student schedules. Mrs. Austin, S.l.M.S. Coordinator, added, "Information on individual students or groups of students can be reported and totaled in minutes compared to the hours that were sometimes necessary the old way." Although rather impersonal, computers saved much needed time for the faculty. As a result, the time-consuming personal touches of yesteryear have been traded for futuristic efficiency and speed.

There were often op- portunities for fun, but being a band member included a great amount of hard work for those who had the ability and the discipline to partici- pate. Marchers had to put their best foot for- ward inot to mention their "correct" footy while they tried to stay in straight, perfectly spaced lines. The real challenge came, though, when they had to play as they marched. 134 l Band This year the band performed four different shows which meant learning several routines along with a great deal of music. Tine Safrit, flag captain, commented, "The hard work was definitely worth it as far as the variety it offered the home audience since they be- came bored with seeing the same show week after week. This also gave band members more incentive to work. " The new approach to half-time shows was designed to bring pride and support back to the band as well as keep the audience glued to their seats during half-time. "l recall the qual- ity of the band when I was a freshmen. I only hope that through dedication the band can be that great again." said Tara Jackson, a se- nior band member. And what are the plans for the future March- ing Cavaliers? Mr. Lipe, the band director, ex- pressed, "We hope to try to do a variety of shows, to represent the school the best way we can at football games, and to go on trips to rirliakfe band enjoyable for students."

This competitivefaggressive atti- tude kept the teams going throughout the seasons and helped them earn playoff spots. Although the teams were not domineer- ing in any sport, many individuals broke records and earned letters, trophies, and the continued respect of the fans. Most student athletes will not make their living in athletics, but the training and experience gained in high school will prepare them for possible play in college and a life-long interest in physical fitness.

Bet- ter late than never!" 144 l '87 Tennis From the first match all the way to the state playoffs, the fellows dazzled onlookers and opponents with their swiftness and style. Spectators often asked, "Are you sure this is North Rowan's team?" After years of average perfor- mances, the team broke out of their slump to show their true colors. As Brian Koontz put it, "The potential has al- ways been there. All we really needed was the motivation found in a few really good wins." For the first time in quite a while, North was once again back on the tennis map. But, more importantly, the guys proved that tennis was as wor- thy of publicity and recognition as other athletic events. Last years success made a great deal of racquet for the tennis team and no doubt this years team will find that win- ning experience that will serve to net them even more victo- ries this year.

'87 Tennis X 145 Talent and teamwork pay off for the Swinging Singles fter some struggling seasons, the softball team has gotten into the swing of things. The Lady Cavs have been putting their best feet forward for the past two years. This year all that hard work and dedication paid off. The team finished the '87 season with a 14-6 record, es- tablishing a school record for the most wins in a season. They also were the first soft- ball team in school history to qualify for the state 2A play- offs. The '86 team was knocked out of post season play by a coin toss. Although they lost the first playoff game 13-8 to North Stanley, confer- ence player of the year Jo Bottom Row: Stephanie White, Vickie Mills, Diane Casey, Aleshia Hawkins, Raquel Hammond, Yvette Mitchell, Lisa Kluttz Top Row: Melinda Watkins, manager, April Hawkins, Julie Thomas, Lola Jones, Dawn Kesler, Bobbi Sims, Jo Tomblin, Talatha Vaughters. 146 l '87 Softball Tomblin said, "ltmade us feel important and like we were professionals at what we were doing." One difference that helped create a team attitude was their ability to get along well on and off the field. According to junior left-fielder Yvette Mitchell, "This is a key factor that helped us win in some tough games." With a record breaking sea- son behind them and seven starters returning, Coach At- well said, "maybe we can go back to the state playoffs again. " With strong veteran leader- ship and the desire for post- season play, the team should be able to stay in the swing of things.

When asked about making both teams, Sifford stated: "I made both teams last year as a freshman and this year was better, so I thought I had a good chance again."

When asked about the sea- son, Coach Bill Kesler re- plied, "We played well through the whole season and we never let up. This past year we missed the playoffs by one game. We only lost four seniors, so we should have a good chance next year of making the playoffs." With the roughness polished away, the Cavaliers can be expected to bring their special brand of brilliance to the diamond next year. Chad Queen.

Although the finish line was the place they were headed, the goals were set and ex- ceeded by the women's track members themselves. These girls didn't become athletes runners by being lazy. They pushed their bodies to the absolute limits. They are the ones who stretched til it hurt, and ran with blisters and bruises. These are the ones who poured everything into their sport. They were not just running track, but thinking track too. "To be your best you must stay on the same train of thought," stated Andrea Britton. Running track has its advantages as Bobbi Sims stated "you get to compete against a lot of people and when you win you get a good feeling inside. " But along with its advan- tages come the disadvan- tages. Tarsha Mallet complained, "There is too much practice and you have to go far away to compete sometimes." Like most other competitive sports, track was a sport of both give and take. There were bad points, but the women's team got out of it about as much as they put into it. As a result of their hard work, three ofthe track members went to the State Finals at N.C.S.U. in Raleigh. Bobbi Sims competed in the discus and high jump, and April Jackson and Tonya Rusher ran the 400m dash. Tonya's time of 59.48 seconds made her the third girl ever in the history of Rowan County to run 400 meters in less than one minute. In spite of the blisters and bruises and lack of free time, those track members who made the sacrifices met per- sonal goals and ran rings around their competitors.

Many records were broken be- cause the athletes were willing to push themselves a little far- ther and work a little harder in practice to prepare for a meet. Darryl Jackson went that extra distance to set a new school long jump distance of 22'1", Andre Gaston leaped to a new record of 46'6V2" in the triple jump, Harvey Archie raced to a new record in the 400 meter dash, and Anthony Britton outlasted the competi- tion to set a record in the 800 152 X Men's Track meter run. In the 800 and 1600 meter relays, two teams set new school records for moving the baton around the tract. Brian Steele, Adrian Steele, Jasper Cuthrell and Harvey Archie won the state title in the 800 relay with a school and county record of 1:28.82. It was a good year for the track team even though the team was young and inex- perienced. Coach Robert Steele recognized his team had a winning combination, "We had talented young men who were willing to work hard." Talent and hard work earned them the Ledford ln- vitational Track Meet as all track team members gave their best for the victory. The season ended with the team third in the conference, second in the sectionals, third in the regionals and in the state. It was a season in which the team could take pride. Although many of the record breakers are running in college the team they left behind knows how to overrun the agony of the feet and feel the thrill of victory. Jim Young.

They have cheered the Cavaliers to vic- tory on cold fall evenings and thru hot sweaty nights in the gym. The experience shows in their ability to keep the crowd rooting for the home team, even during those dark times when victory seemed far away. From summer camp to the first game skills are homed to that fine edge that will make them effective sparks to ignite team spirit. "During my Hrst year as a cheerleader I felt uneasy in front of a crowd. The routines were new to me and I worried I might forget something impor- tant. Now, the routines are second nature and I can con- centrate on the details." said junior Kelly Simmerson So often it is easy to forget how hard cheerleading can be. "I feel that the squad is very good this year because we are able to work and com- municate together," said cap- tain Parrish McDaniel. Sure, it's easy when the game is at home and the Cavs are ahead 30-0, but what about away games when things are not going well for the team? Then the cheerleaders may be the only friendly voices the team hears after being chewed out by their coaches and booed by the crowd. Then cheerleaders be- come vital to the spirit of the team, for the cheerleaders are out there doing nothing, but I know from experience that cheerleading is very hard. lt takes alot of time and energy to keep an upset crowd somewhat enthused." said junior Shaundria Gibson.

Burgin Quest for zt all falls short SHATTERED DREAMS n August the football team opened practice with hopes of an undefeated season and a possible state champion- ship. These dreams were shat- tered bythe West Rowan Falcons in an unexpected 20-13 loss. The loss stunned players and coaches, but inspired more inten- sity for future games. They bounced back to beat East Rowan, and then put together the best second half of the season to beat the defending state champions from Lexington. The game went into overtime and a quick score by quarterback Chris Sifford plus an unyielding defense created the most exciting finish of the season. Our archrival might be Salisbury," said Chad Queen, "but beating Lexington was our best win of the year!" The win put the Cavs in the top conference spot and gave the team renewed confidence. Following this emotional vic- tory, North downed its next four opponents - Flandleman, Salis- bury, West Davidson, and S.W. Guilford. With the conference championship in mind and in reach, the homecoming game with S.W. Guilford seemed headed for disaster when the Cavs rallied from a two touch- down deficit to defeat the Cowboys 28-21. The Thomasville game was a case of being in the wrong place at the wrong time. Following the loss of their homecoming queen in a tragic accident the previous week, the Bulldogs played with emotion and downed the Cavs in a very sloppy game 42-13. The loss brought disgust to the players, but they rebounded and defeated Ledford a week later. The following two weeks were disappointing for the team. First they were stalemated by a deter- mined E. Davidson team and fell in overtime 10-7. Disaster struck again as the Cavs traveled to Monroe in their bid for a state championship. The team fell behind early and couldn't find enough for another comeback and ended the season with a bit- ter loss. "We were a lot better than our record showed," commented Chris Weaver. "We just got a lot of bad breaks." Although the varsity team will lose many valuable seniors, the returning players are looking for a good season next year. "I feel the upcoming season will be a sensational one if everybody works together." remarked Chris Sifford. The experience and leadership gained this year will provide an advantage in the championship hopes o next year. Jim Young. Varsity Football l 157 J 5 4 ng Tx wp' l 5 Hot Popcorn and Blankets.

The seniors and freshman 160 l Homecoming teamed up to beat the sophmorefjunior team in a powder puff football game that was followed by a pep rally and bonfire. Effigies of S.W. Guilford Cowboys that were made by students from each class were burned. As in the past, the traditional dress-up days, sales of Cavalier souvenirs and expressions of spirit and enthusiasm were added up to determine the most spirited class. Although the class atten- dants didn't get to ride through town on convertibles with the band playing and floats in tow, the seniors showed their class by participating anyway and earning most spirited honors. With some creativity, future classes can take the responsi- bility of starting some new homecoming traditions. B.

The young Cavs had much determination and the taste for victory. This attitude aided them throughout the season to keep practicing hard and build a quality team. ln their opening game the Ju- nior Cavs Iost to West Rowan, but the experience gained by the players in this game helped them 162 X JV Football in games with East Rowan and Lexington. North's first taste of victory came against Ftandleman. Behind the leadership of quarter- back Larry Dixon and receiver James Houpe, the team prevailed 34-14. The Cavs had a poor showing against Salisbury, but bounced back to defeat West Davidson the following week. ln the next two games the Cavs played well, but again fell short to Southwest Guilford and Thomas- ville. Then the Cavs traveled to Ledford where they tamed the Panthers with the running of Nelvin Wilkes for a 38-10 victory. In the last game of the season the Junior Cavs dropped a heart- breaker to East Davidson 7-6. This ended the season at 3-7. Even with a young team the Cavs still gained valuable experience and leadership which will prove essential in the upcoming sea- son.

Cheerleaders were more than pretty girls in short skirts. Along with all the attention and glamour, cheerleading re- quired hard work, self- discipline and a great deal of time. For cheerleaders, football season began in June with practice every Wednesday. Tracie Maynard, captain, 164 i J.V. Cheerleaders said, "Our year started off slowly but after some hard, hot practices we've gotten a lot better." This year, for the first time, the cheerleaders attended the "Esprit Cheerleading Camp" here at North. From August third to the sixth, they worked as hard as other athletes learning new cheers and dances. Freshman Sally Andrews said, lreally enjoyed the week of camp. llearned a lotand we became better as a team." The squad was excited about having a new advisor, Julie Siwinski. "lt's my first year ever doing this, said Ms. Siwinski, "and I enjoy working with the girls. They are very enthusiastic and they're a great squad to work with." The J.V.s showed their hard working, supportive attitudes as they cheered for their teams. Go Big Green! Brie Barnes ' "Q, ut-:L 2s' lg.. at .Ml - as V. 3 ,5 . wt . .f- N, item ,. , .pk -1' J f.

The cross country team had a larger turn-out than in their first season and they won the first cross country meet ever for a North team by defeating South- west Gilford and West Davidson. Seniors John Workman and John Cooper showed leadership in pushing the young team to the limit each day in practice. This ex- tra push paid off in meets as Chris Smith paced the team throughout the season with high finishes. Coach Wayne Crowder commented, "We had no single standouts, but we had several good runners." Having experi- enced the thrill of victory the young Cavaliers are sure to be a threat in the conference next sea- son. Opening their second season at North, the Volleyball team started with enthusiasm and ex- cellent leadership. Seniors Karen Adams and Melinda Watkins helped younger players develop skills and that determination needed to succeed. l'Twin Towers," Lola Jones and Julie Thomas learned quick and pro- vided height for those essential blocks and spikes. Sophomore setter Tracey Myers added speed and depth to the team. Af- ter watching a college volleyball game the team is real enthusias- tic for next season. Mrs. Moore remarked, "l'm real hopeful for a much improved season and I feel we have the talent to be a good team.

Photo by L.Jones N Determznatzon and Pride lead teams Indoor TraCklWrestling tthe beginning of prac- tice the indoor track team hoped to improve in its second season and the wres- tlers were in the process of re- building a winning team. The wrestling team opened its season with a good turnout, but soon dwindled to six peo- ple. These elite six were chal- lenged by Coaches William Higgins and Lealand Pea- cock. "Higgins and I set high standards for our boys to live up to and to help build for the future." commented Coach Peacock. With individual goals set high, they faced opponents knowing they could not win a match but could improve their personal records. Senior Heath Hager provided leader- ship and Sophomores Denny Puckett and Darrin Thomas worked hard to return to the Regionals. Sherman Miller was a standout as he participated in wrestling and he also led the l indoor track team in the pole vault, high jump, and triple jump. Sherman was one of the few athletes who excelled in two sports in the same sea- son. Having a year of experi- ence, the team opened their season in a meet at Chapel Hill and quickly proved how good they were. Thomas Wilson, Miller, Mike Stinson, Adrian Steele, Reginald Barnes, Tarsha Mallet, Jasper Cur- threll, Morris Jones and Brian Steele all qualified for Regional competition. Several records were also set or bro- ken in their other meets. Cuthrell set a school record in the 300 meter with a time of 35.8 seconds then joined B. Steele, Wilson, and A. Steele in breaking a school record on the 4x40O relay. The Cavs have young talent who will continue to contribute to the success of the team. Jim Up and Over!

The J.V. basket- ball teams proved to be prime examples of the ups and downs that inexperience can bring. For example, the J.V. girls, with only tow sophomores on the floor, had their difficulties throughout the year. They also proved how tough they were capable of playing by putting on an impressive defensive display to beat an undefeated East Davidson team 31 - 24. "The girls worked hard on dis- cipline and becoming a team which helped them improve every game," commented Coach Moore. Though they had their ups, their downs were also very vivid. Nobody expressed their frustration more than Wanda Jackson who cooled off a fan with a coke after a tough loss to Thomasville. The J.V. boys started out the season down but quickly cleaned up their act. Playing without a team leader, the young Cavs had to win with nothing but teamwork. As the season progressed, sopho- mores James Cowan, Willie Hayes, Larry Dixon and Kevin Ennis got some val- uable help from the freshmen. Though the J.V. teams see- sawed their way through the season, they gained experi- ence and maturity and learned the benefits of teamwork. Brian Koontz J.V. Basketball l 171 Lady Coos show some new moves KKKKSK1KKKKSKKKKKKSKKKSKSKKKKSKSKKKKKKKK Earning Some Respect eing first in the confer- ence was a new ex- perience for the Lady Cava- liers. Apparently the audiences that should have attended their exciting games - two won by three pint shots by Bobbi Sims at the final buzzer - were not aware of the dy- namic team that held off all conference foes until February. Several team mem- bers shared Bobbi's feeling of surprise due to their record. "l knew we had the potential," said Bobbi, "we just needed to put it all together." After several mediocre seasons, the women's varsity team appeared to have found that magic winning formula. On the court they seemed to be able to read each others' minds as they covered for each other and fed each other with smooth precision. Coach Gary Atwell commented, "Our team is coming together real well, we do a good job picking each other up." When the going was tough in the paint, they struck from three point range. The team's attitude of being there for each other, to play to the best of their ability as indi- viduals and as a team, seems to have been the major ac- complishment of the Lady Cavaliers. Obviously these girls played for the love of the game, NOT the roar of the crowd. Center Lola Jones who averaged 20 points a game paused during practice to say, "I think we're doing a good job and everybody on the team works to be better." With an attitude like that, it isn't surprising that the women's varsity team earned some new respect this year.

Such was the case when a bat flew in the gym and stopped play with eight seconds remaining in the home game with Salisbury. Trail- ing by nine points and Ed Kesler at the free throw line, the flying spectator entered the gym, clear- ing the court of all players and scaring fans with it swooping air- show. The game ended with play- ers and fans alike excited, bewil- dered and amazed. This creature seemed to characterize the season the Cavaliers had experienced. Beginning the season with plenty of height and depth, the team was expected to contend for a championship. Returning veterans and talented juniors from an excellent J.V. team proved too much for the Cavs early season opponents. A big front line and the scoring ability of Ed Kelser and Brian Paige kept the Cavs close in the early season game with Salisbury, but turn- overs and bad luck lost the game. In a rematch in the Christmas tournament North proved no better as they were defeated and had to settle for second place.

First, Derrick Foxx was lost for the season and Steve Roof was benched due to illness. t'The loss of Foxx and Roof really hurt us a lot because of their size and height," commented Coach Bob Hundley. Next, Brian Paige was hit with back problems and forced to the bench. These losses took away from the height and depth. The Cavs lost close games in the final quarter due to foul trouble and fatigue.

Postscripts ,ff Mrs. Joyce Cline More New Faces eople who can answer incessant phones, deal with frequent inter- ruptions and numerous crises, while maintaining sanity-with-a-smile are hard to find. However, the new front office sec- retary Mrs. Gray, and the new guidance secretary Mrs. Cline, were two such people found this year. Although their jobs must have been frustrating at times -- with a complicated new phone system and several hundred names and faces to put together, they managed to treat all who needed their assistance with patience and proficiency.
