M ) ' xcellence: A Bruin tradition each class must stand up to The history of Northrop High School is one filled with success. Winning has become a Bruin tradi- tion not only in the area of sports but in other areas as well. Each class that enters Morthrop has this winning tradition to stand up to and continue. Morthrop students excel in many areas — athletically, aca- demically, socially, and maturity. While many schools can identify outstanding aspects of their fine arts programs, none can compare with the excellence of the entire fine arts program at Northrop. We have outstanding performing groups such as Swing Choir, Con- cert Choir, Concert Band, and Con- cert Orchestra. The Morthrop marching band, The Big Orange Pride, has been outstanding since its start and placed fourth in the state band competition and earned the honor of performing in the 1988 Rose Bowl Parade. No other school in Indiana can boast the annual ex- cellence in overall music education compared with Northrop. In addi- tion our fall play and spring musical compare favorably with any in the state and with many on a university level. Northrop also has one of the big- gest and best staff of teachers and administrators. The 1987 Fort Wayne Community Schools Teach- er of the Year was Mrs. Stephany Bourne.

Mrs. Bourne went on to compete with other teachers in the statewide competition for Teacher of the Year. The goals of every secondary school should include providing an academic program which insures that graduates have every opportu- nity to succeed at the next level of schooling. Students at Northrop ex- cel academically and are able to compete successfully with gradu- ates from any high school in the United States. The highest accumu- lated grade point average ever achieved in the Fort Wayne Com- munity Schools was earned in 1987 by Northrop graduate Mike O ' Hear. Every year Northrop has many Na- tional Merit Semi-Finalists includ- ing two (Megan Brown, Mike Braun) in the 1987-88 school year. Two Northrop students (Valerie Pacer, Megan Brown) were also the only Fort Wayne students to receive the National Council of Teachers of En- glish Achievement Award for their excellent writing. Though Northrop is one of the two " youngest " schools in the Fort Wayne area, no school has won as many state championships, (contin- ued on page 6) After ending their slump, a group of proud Bruins celebrate tfieir 2219 fiomeconning victory over Wayne. pfioto Tami Clark WHAT ELSE IS THERE? inning: Students strive for best year in high school history Northrop is known statewide for athletic excellence not only in men ' s sports but in wonnen ' s as well. These are just a few of the areas of excellence at Northrop. There are many groups that have not been mentioned such as our speech team which is very successful and has won many awards on a state as well as national level. Another group is our Students Against Drunk Driving (SADD) chapter. In- terest in this group was outstanding this year as they announced that their goal was not to encourage stu- dents to stop drinking but to dis- courage them from driving after they drink. Each year thousands of students come to Northrop and face the tre- mendous pressure of continuing the winning traditions of Northrop. The Class of 1988 and its followers, the classes of 89, 90, and 91, began the school year with the goal to not just carry on this tradition but to exceed all other accomplishments of for- mer NHS classes. They had one and only one goal — to be the best class to ever attend Northrop High School and to have the best year in high school history. They had to be the best, after all, what else is there!?! — Gina Snowberger ■M |- " f I, .f»l; .« ' The Big Orange Pride, fourth in the state, perform for their favorite audience, the home crowd. photo Tami Clark ' TO BE THE BEST i Transfering in from Wayne, Mrs- " Beaver " Beerman elicits a " spiritual " response from Mr " Banana " Brown on costume day. photo Tami Clarl Mrs Stephany Bourne earns the honor of being the Fort Wayne Community Schools Teacher of the Year, photo WHAT ELSE IS THERE? V J ne Body Stuck lockers, crowded hallways, indigestible lunches, fire drills on the coldest, rainiest days of the year, insurmountable amounts of homework, frus- trating rules and dress codes elements of high school life. But despite the downside of a highs- chool year, a year which will be for- ever remembered in this book, many cherished moments and feelings filled the halls of Morthrop, overshadowing the unpleasantries — The Class of ' 88 stand- ing together for the first time as seniors at the homecoming pep session, the juniors making it to the lower level of the gym, the sophomores ecstatic victory over the seniors, and the freshmen ' s contagious en- thusiasm for their first year of high school. Even through those " hor- rible days " there was always something special given to us from Northrop — a smile from a certain person, en- couraging words from a teacher, a postponed test, or even an assembly during a least favorite class. We laughed, we smiled, we cried, we complained. We worked, we played, we failed, we succeeded. We were four separate classes as one student body. We will never have this same time together in the same way again. Never. But we will never forget these times. For they were the best. — Jennifer Welsh ' Continuing r orthrop tradition, sen- ior beach bums luau in the com mens on Hawaiian Day photo; Tami Claris Lara Wegner packs up her beach gear, empties the sand out of her shoes and heads to class, photo Tami Clark ' ' ' .■ THE BEST OF TIMES V y One of the main parts of a stu- dent ' s life is mal ing money.

Ala- bama photo Watters Studio The Fall Play was very realistic iracles The Morthrop Auditorium was transformed from a regular stage into a houseiiold in Tuscumbia, Ala- bama during the 1880 ' s. This year ' s rave reviews go out to the cast of " The Miracle Worker " for their out- standing performance. The Fall Play, on November 5th and 6th, took a new twist with its theme and its realism. It was one of the best performances that this reporter has ever seen. The story revolves around the relation- ship between Helen Keller, played by Soph- omore Kelly Greene and Annie Sullivan, played by Senior Megan Brown. Helen Keller, a blind, mute child, and her life- long teacher Annie Sullivan are in complete conflict at the beginning of the story. Helen ' s parents, Captain and Mrs. Keller (Jason Keller and Kar- In Rittenberg), hire Annie Sullivan, who was at one time handicapped herself, to teach their daughter Helen to behave like a " normal " child. The Keller ' s are tired of Helen throwing tan- trums when she doesn ' t get her way, they know that she can be a disciplined child if only someone could teach her. Annie has more extensive plans for Helen, as we soon learn, she understands the need for lan- guage and plans to try to teach Helen. What Annie does not realize is that Helen is used to getting her own way, and the first thing she has to teach her is discipline before she can teach her language. What follows Annie ' s teaching lessons are a se- ries of physical confrontations. At one point Helen hits Annie in the face with a doll that Annie had brought to Helen as a gift, and later in the story she spits scram- bled eggs in Annie ' s face. When questioned by this reporter about what kind of padding she wore during the play, Megan Brown painfully stated, " I didn ' t wear anything, Kelly had on knee pads, but I didn ' t have on any padding. Mr. Procter said it took away the realism " . Realism was one of the many things that the Fall Play definitely had, especially Kel- ly Greene ' s performance as Helen Keller. Greene ' s performance was extremely real- istic for a school production, she practical- ly became Helen Keller. Another thing that the play had was the praise of Principal H. Douglas Williams. On Friday morning he made an announcement encouraging all who had not gone to the play to go Friday night, and promised to refund the money of any person who was not totally satis- fied. The set of the " Miracle Worker " was excellent, as can always be ex- pected from a Northrop production. The entire cast should be com- mended for their hard work and quality performance. Talent in the cast and crew, a money back guarantee, and real- ism, were the reasons that this years fall play was one of the best perfor- mances ever displayed by Northrops Performing Arts Department. — Robin Dunn and Kurlie Hitchcock THE BEST OF TIMES Through the Eyes of an Oklahoman! pirited Days Do ya ' ll dress up for all this?

The 3rd hour classes with every person in there with a piece of bag on them somehow in someway, won a breakfast. Ya ' know what, 55 classes won! Then came the pep assembly, which was pretty fun. We had one interuptment during the day though, the seniors claimed School Color day as Toga day. But hey, you ' re only a senior once. Huh?! Friday night was even more excit- ing with the game and the Homecom- ing dance afterwards. The dance took place in the commons, which nine-hun- dred students filled up. Senior Class Presi- dent, Robin Dunn, commented on how she felt the dance turned out. " I was pleased with the way the dance turned out. Usually a lot of the people who show up for the dance like to stand around and talk, but this year everyone seemed to participate in the fun. Maybe they enjoyed the D.J. " I must admit to ya ' ll.

Before the game Friday, October 1 6, the former Homecoming queen, Ro chelle Reinking, gave up her reign as she crowned the 1987-88 homecom- ing queen. The honor was accepted by Senior, Chrissy Saunders, escort- ed by her father, Steve Saunders. The homecoming court consisted of: Danielle Gail, escorted by Jay Foster; Dawn Rice, escorted by Jeff Teusch; and Vanessa Williams, escorted by Chris Lovelace ; Juniors, Kristin Bo linger, escorted by Darryl Esterline; Lisa Edwards, escorted by Chris Raptis; and Lawanda Harper, escorted by Victor Nel- son; Sophomores, Cynthia Black, escorted by James Johnson; Stacey Hand, escorted by John Daney; and Jessica Harrison, es- corted by Scott Pafman; Freshmen Mi- chelle Childs, escorted by Troy Granning; Tracey Frank, escorted by Craig Beaty; and Toya Key, escorted by Anthony King. During half-time, the Northrop Marching Band crossed the field in many colorful uniforms that caught the eye of the crowd. Also during half-time the senior band members were recognized. The crowd became excited as fans cheered on the team. A neck and neck battle took place up until the last three minutes of the game. At this time Wayne scored a touch down making the score 16-18, in Wayne ' s favor. With only seconds left, the Bruins drove down the Generals and scored pulling ahead and leaving the game in a victory, 22-18. j. ,. . . . — Kurlie Hitchcock , I MmpP ' ' ,i.

The thought that most seniors have is about graduating and moving on to new things. The Senior Assembly made a lot of us realize what we were actually leaving and made us think about where we are going. I guess we all assumed that thg assembly would be another boring lecture on college choices and skipping school; instead we ended up crying while watching a film about leaving our friends and fun. After we graduate and go on with whatever it is that we plan to do with our lives, I guess that is when we will see that these really were The Best of Times. The freshmen got a look at how a real high school is run at their assembly (initia- tion). It ' s September and the freshmen are scared to pieces about starting high school, so naturally we have to send them to their Freshman assembly (Initiation) so that they become even more terrified . As memory goes Mr. John Weiker approaches the podium and smirks and screams in a sarcastic, cruel way, ' While you are at Northrop there will be no smoking, swearing, breath ing, small items of cloth- ing on your bodies, itching, stabbing, spitting, running. yelling, talking, sneezing, weapons on your person, music boxes, leaving for lunch, fighting, no vulgar language-even if your teachers use it first; there is no way that you are going to get away with enjoying your high school years. ' I hope they all make it to be seniors! How many schools do you know of that can get almost the entire student body to wear trash bags? On one given day that is? That ' s right, only Northrop High School. With the help of the administration and the creativity of the student body our first pep session was very high-spirited and very or- ange. There were a total of 2000 trash bags handed out in the commons Friday morn- ing before the pep session and at least 1600 students were wearing trash bags. We even had teachers dancing around in that neon plastic. Members of the football team had made a relay and were running all over the place wearing dresses, drinking baby bottles and even riding bicycles. We, of course, were cheering them on and getting them fired up for the Homecoming game. Last, but not least, we crowned Mr. Ir- resisible, John Ellington. Didn ' t he look sweet! We packed quite a bit of craziness and fun into one short half-an- hour. I think they should make our pep sessions longer! — Kurlie Hitchcock %) THE BEST OF TIMES This is the old switch-aroo!

We had many forms of fun at Morthrop High School this past year. The student body had their fun and the administration, in between their work, had a pretty wild time too. Fun may be described by some stu dents as going to a party with some friends on a Friday or Saturday night and talking or listening to music all night. Some students say that fun Is just hanging around at their favorite spot, like the mall or the park, and just soaking up the atmosphere. Be- ing with a good buddy to talk over all of the fun of the past was alsq a major source of crazlness. There were even a few students who made the best of school and had a good time roaming the halls of Northrop or catching a few winks in government class. From a Senior ' s perspective the freshmen were es- pecially good at making school fun, be- cause of their nill-tonothing social lives. While the freshmen were having fun in A repairman fixes one of tfie windows in the main hallway after Aaron Hemingway was thrown threw it.

Which one do you think we mean? photo Tami Clark school, seniors were making fun of school, and doing it quite well. There was even reason to commend the administration for having their bit of fun this past year. The members of the admin- istration have found that they can enjoy making an extra buck on Saturday morn- ings, which they all need. The way they made these great fortunes, of course, was Saturday School. Saturday School was as- signed when a student was late to school five or more times and he has to attend an extra day of school to make those tardies up. Of course the Seniors with their " Sen- loritis " were hit the hardest by this new source of administrative fun. But hey that Is how they have their fun, can we question? The student body and the administration even had a bit of fun together; the WOWO Penny Pitch. The students worked hard to bring in lots of money for people who needed it and the ad- ministration worked hard to give the students some initiative to do so. Part of the administration agreed to get the major hair buzz if the stu- dents could raise $12,000. Though the students did not quite reach their goal, some of the administrators still remained good sports and got those hair buzzes that they promised. Dr. Wil- liams looked the best, of course. Hopefully the student body and the ad- ministration can still have a bit of fun after the graduating class of 1988 is gone. — Kurlle Hitchcock % THE BEST OF TIMES April Errington and Joe Strahm show that being close to sonneone can be fun too photo Tracey Girar- dot Steve McGann.

If you were willing to wear it, it must have been some kind of style. Whatever a particular group of students were comfortable wearing, is what was in to them. This was not one of those wonder- ful years when everyone had to wear a specific style or he she was complete ly out of it. The students seem to be content with what they were wear ing and did not seem to make a big issue out of someone elses tastes or styles. Of course we still had our usual punks, preps, bikers, bums, people who insisted on dressing up, and naturally we had the casual dressers. Some of these trend-setting looks were even combined to create new and original looks. The punks did not change too much from past years, besides that there were more people who were willing to be a little rebellious in their appearance. They wore blue jeans rolled up and t-shirts, with a few rips and some creative art added to them to make them unique. To make their out- fits complete they added a pair of combat boots and a trench, and any hair style which required little hair. Even though the punks wore blue-jeans, t-shirts, and com- bat boots, their style was not too much different then any other style. The only major difference was in the accessories that they wore. The preps wore old style cardigans, tur- tlenecks in every color and stonewashed blue-jeans that fit the body to the " T " . Reeboks and ankle boots, with socks to match their cardigans was a big hit with the preps. The bikers did not get as aggressive as they had been in the past years, they still stuck to lots of black and lots of leather. The concert t-shirts were also a popular item but the chains decreased in popu- larity by shocking numbers. The bums wore sweats that they left on the floor from the night before and old gymshoes. Those bums who forgot to shower came to school with hair that looked like it had been whipping in the breeze in all different directions. Most of the Bruins who liked to dress-up in skirts, sweaters and dress slacks did so for a couple of rea- sons. Some of the students had to dress-up for work, some did so because they en- joyed looking sophisticated. The casual look was proba biy the most popular look among the students. Stonewash, acid wash, blue-jeans (Guess, Palmetto, and Bongos), with a sweater or sweatshirt and gymshoes or flats were all part of the casu- al look. We skipped out on the bleached blue-jeans this year, yea! Everyone had their own styles, but they all made up one Bruin student body. — Kurlie Hitchcock Sl] Mike Boyer struts the casual look.

The Semi-Formal is similar to the Prom, with dancing, love, fun, friends and of course, pictures. The Semi-Formal is just that though, Semi-Formal! You don ' t have to dress extremely formal like the Prom and this attracts a lot of students. It seems as if the students really enjoy not having to go overboard as they do with the prom and yet they are not just at- tending another blue jean, t-shirt, after a game dance. (And it is cheaper than the Prom). The first Semi-Formal, held in 1986- 1987, took some work to get going and to get the students interested in having one. But the second Semi-Formal, which was held on Saturday, February 27, 1 had a tremendous turn-out. It did not seem as if it took any convincing to get these students to attend. The dance was held in the commons, which was decorated with white and blue streamers and balloons, event he Bruin Bear was made up for the occasion. Adding to the atmosphere, were the dimmed lights and the popular dance music, (which brought couples closer to- gether on the dance floor). Pictures were being taken in the cafeteria for those who Though a lot of students came in cou- ples, there were those who went stag and had a wonderful time with their friends and ivith those of the opposite sex who also went stag. It is a good way to meet someone. Having a dance before the Prom that was semi-dressy and a little bit dressier han the Morp was a clever idea, and the students at Morthrop are the ones who made it possible. — Kurlie Hitchcock wanted to hold on to the memories, which was a real advantage for underclassman who can not attend the prom and who want to get pictures taken with their spe- cial person.

Students were dancing all over the place and having a great time dressed in old clothes (the idea of the MORP is to dress down). The music was blaring and the lights were flashing as the students danced the evening away. The theme of the dance was just the opposite of the PROM (MORP is PROM spelled backward). The girls asked the guys out to the dance and they picked up the tab for the evening, including the dance tickets and dinner. Before the dance is when most couples like to get a bit to eat; the girls were suppose to pick a real cheap res- taurant, like McDonalds or the KMart cafe. Everyone dressed down for the cheap evening by wearing old clothes that looked as bummy as possible. And some of the couples dressed down very well! The big trend for the MORP dance this year seemed to be with the couples wear- ing matching shirts and sweatshirts that said things on the front and back. There was one couple who wore sweatshirts, the Students enjoy going to a dance and looking bummy girls reading " Trouble and I go hand in hand, " and her date ' s sweatshirts read " Trouble " , Mr. and Mrs, Riley even did their part to participate in the fashion ' scene by wearing sweatshirts that read " Coach Riley " and " Mrs. Coach Riley. " Though every couple did not get into wear- ing the matching shirts, the unique outfits worn by many of the couples in attendance made the evening very exciting. Getting pictures taken was definitely a thrill for most of the couples; taking home a picture of yourself and your date all grubbed-out is always a pleasure to show your parents. The highlight of the evening came when a carpet of newspaper was rolled out onto the dance floor and all of the contestants for MORP king came to the front. The con- testants were Brian Bolinger, Brian Wes- lowski, Dennis Springer, Fred Jenkins, and Jeff Heitger. After all the suspense and waiting, Fred Jenkins was the lucky guy to be crowned MORP king. Fred Jenkins made his way down the newspaper run- way and was congratulated by others in attendance. The MORP this year was one of the best so far in the history of Morthrop High School. The students really en- joyed turning the tables and dressing down (but we know that the guys went because they liked having the girls pick up the tab for the evening). Although the MORP was exactly the opposite from the PROM, it was just as fun. — Colleen Freeland and Kurlie Hitchcock Coach Riiey and Mrs, Coach Riley show their MORP spirit by wearing their sporting sweatshirts. photo Watters Studio THE BEST OF TIMES 0 Jill Flowers and Jenny Welsh look thrilled to be out of the Fort and in Florida getting the serious tropical tans- Tessa and Missi relax and soak the good life during Spring Break ' 88. iiMWi CMUMiiiiinfi nimnfiiiiin nnnnr i rr- ni Tessa Swiftney and Michelle Benge enjoy a Spring Break Weekend in Indianapolis.

Students are not the only ones who look forward to Spring Break, the parents be- come quite thrilled around that time of year because they are sick of hearing how each and every day at school is getting longer and longer. The teachers at school get pretty nervous and restless too; howev- er, I do not think that the parents ' or teach- ers ' feelings about Spring Break can com pare to the students ' overwhelming joy, Northrop students feel that they are get ting that so deserved vacation from those people who like to nag at them and that they have ob- tained some kind of revenge on those in authority. Though not all Northrop students leave town for Spring Break most are excited about not coming to school and about being able to sleep in. Some students o ligated themselves work over Spring to make those few lars while others trotted off to Florida, North and South Carolina (or somewhere where the sun is) to spend those extra bucks and to just get out of Fort Wayne. Naturally there were those students who could not wait to get back to school, but we try not to speak about those people.

After months of preparation the 1988 Prom finally arrived. The prom was held at the IPFW ballroom on Saturday, May 14th, keeping up the tradition. The prom has been at IPFW since Northrop ' s first prom thirteen years ago. With the wonderful planning of the junior class the prom was a big success and the attendance was incred- ible. There were nearly 660 tickets sold; this was the highest number of sales ever. The junior class handed out long stem silk roses to all of the girls attending as they entered the ballroom. The fashion of the prom varied. Some girls wore tea-length dresses and some wore long, formal gowns. The colors of some of the dresses seemed to fit the spring season with soft pastels and others were really flashy and bright, including roy- al blue and black. Of course there were pictures taken so that students could take home more than just memories, but pic- tures to hold on to those memories. The 1988 prom court consisted of Vanessa Williams and escort Chris Love- lace, DeeDee Holtzberg and escort Darryl Esterline, Teresa Camp and escort Kevin Feldman, Chrissy Saunders and escort Bri- an Bollinger, and the 1988 prom queen and king were Valerie Pacer and Dave Hastings. Even though the prom came to a close, most of the couples had plans for after- prom events. Some couples went to King ' s Island the following day and others had made plans to go to parties or just be alone together. The prom plays a large part in a senior ' s life and it is one of those moments that is hard to forget. Looking back at high school, years from now, the class of 1988 will not remember those sad moments in school but they will remember their senior prom, a " night of starlit elegance " . — Kurlie Hitchcock % This prom couple is getting out on the floor and really moving, this shows that the prom does not have to be all slow dancing, photo Watters Studio Lisa Edwards and Matt Taylor hold each other tight during a slow dance.

As Northrop ' s Graduating Class of 1988 made their final appearance at graduation they left their mark on the administrators, the parents, the faculty Tiembers, and their friends. The gradu- ating class of 1988 will never be forgot- :en. As a senior I have to say that the senior ear has to be the scariest because the seniors have to say goodbye to all of the ■ ' riends and teachers that they had known ' or four years and had to say hello to new ives and to new futures. Graduation is the " irst big step into new worlds and new ac- complishments. The moment that everyone nad waited 30 long for finally came. Even with a cere- mony that lasted 50 minutes (which had to oe record timing), most of the seniors re- captured years and years that they spent to get to this one major accomplishment in their lives. The two senior class speakers Sandra Ray and Sudip Chowdhury summed up the four years that we all spent at Morthrop High School and gave us a little taste of what we could look forward to in the future. Valedictorian Bruce Colbert, and Sa- lutatorian Todd Ruppert were recog- nized, not only by the administrators and the parents, but by the students as what being the best academically is all about. The large number of High Honors and Scholarships with Distinction show the high standard of academics displayed by the graduating class and just a portion of its accomplishments. Being in high school was not so bad. As much as the graduating class of 1988 prob- ably complained about wanting to gradu- ate, we will all miss Northrop High! — Kurlie Hitchcock THE BEST OF TIMES @ edication For many years, ath- letes at Northrop have strived to be the best. This year was no different. Being the best does not start with win- ning every game, but rather with athletes giving their all. From the Freshman Football Team winning the city championship to the Boys ' Var- sity Basketball Team having an ex- cellent winning sea- son. Bruin athletes were the best. The suc- cess, however, does not stop there. Through girls ' basketball, boys ' and girls ' cross coun- try, wrestling, and track just to name a few, Nor- throp proved it has some of the best teams in the land. During 1987-88, through hard work and dedication, Bruin ath- letes experienced some of the most glorious moments of their high school careers, because of that same hardwork and dedication we showed that as Bruins, we always g ive it our best shot. — Steve Edwards Quarterback Malt Taylor watches as Keith Suttle makes a first down. photo Tami Clark Ann McElroy concentrates on the beam. photo Tami Clark — i— BASK 32 ) OUR BEST SHOT 1 ] " b " ;aB.v .

" — Coach Keim I ts a Ball Teams Combine for Great Season 1 rrr. © With hard work, dedication, and talent, the boys ' tennis team fin- ished with their best season in years. Mr. Jim Keim, tennis coach, explained the success by saying, " When the teams won, it united them, making them men, not boys. When they lost it made them work harder. " The varsity team finished with a record of 10-4 overall and 6-3 in the Summit Ath- letic Conference. After struggling at the first of the year, Northrop came on strong to win nine of their next eleven matches, including a pivotal upset win against North Side that clinched Northrop ' s third place in the SAC. The reserve squad, led by Chad Patter- son and Mike Weaver, also had a good year with a record of 9-5. Keim said that the reserve team " displayed talent ready to spring forward any time " . Next year the varsity team will lose four seniors, Kevin Dougherty. Todd Ruppert, Coy Herald and Brian Weslowski, all who contributed heavily to this year ' s success. Their com- bined record for the season was 42-12, so this year ' s reserve squad will have to come through next year. Sectionals brought expected results for the team. In the first round they defeated Bishop Luers 3-2 , but in the second round, against the state ranked Snider Panthers, they fell 0-5. No one even took a set off of Snider, but they couldn ' t feel bad since they gave their best. A common complaint of the team was lack of support with little attendance. " I thought that we had the capability to win first place in the Summit Athletic Confer- ence, but with the lack of attendence to our matches, our dreams just couldn ' t come true, " commented Weslowski. Northrop was well represented on the all- conference teams. Number one doubles Jeff Lovell and Mark Ruppert made first team allSAC, while number one singles Rick Confer and number two doubles Wes- lowski and Herald made the second team all-SAC.

This season, the freshman team went undefeated in all home games. Said Assis- tant Coach Todd Townsend, " This team was a ' big play ' team — almost every one of our scores came on big plays, such as streaks, reverses, long runs, kick-off re- turns, and interceptions. The freshmen outscored their oppo- nents 141-76, and averaged twenty points per game. They also scored first in every game, which helped them capture the city title for the second straight year. They claimed the title in the last game of the season, beating North Side 25-6. Leading the team most of the season were Keytron Davis and Dave Black. Davis, a tailback, rushed for 175 yards in the championship game and scored nine touchdowns during the season. " It feels great! The seventy- seven practices (throughout the season) really paid off, " said Davis, commenting about the championship. Black, a quarter- back, threw four touchdown passes and two two-point conversions during the sea- son. " Everybody played great, " comment- ed Black, " our motto this year was ' heart, character, and dedication. ' The reserve team, in contrast, had more than two outstanding players. According to Assistant Coach Terry Burton, all the players on the teams were " outstanding. " Even though the team suffered only three losses, two to North Side and one to Bish- op Dwenger, Coach Burton felt that the team would have won more games it wouldn ' t have given up some of its talent to the Varsity Team. Overall, both Townsend and Burton were happy with their respective team ' s finish. Concluding, Burton said, " We were surprised with the outcome. " — Ben Kessler " Crunch!

Mr. Todd Townsend joined the coaching staff, working with virtually all the squads. The season started with two outstanding victories against Elmhurst in the Jambo- ree, 27-0, and Richmond, 20-13, respective- ly. From there, however, the season went downhill. The gridsmen lost their next four games, with a 22.5 points allowed average. The game against Harding seemed, at the time, to be the turning point of the season.

The team had its highlights and more than its share of disappointments, but at least " the second half (of the season) was good and it ended on a high note (the sec- tional win over Huntington North), " Doerffler commented. One of the highlights of the season was the selection of Dennis Springer and Steve Carr to the All-SAC Football Team. " Being chosen for the All-SAC team made a sea- son full of ups and downs end on a high note for me, " said Springer. Carr added, " It topped off a very frustrating season.

The reserve team went 17-5 in 1987-88 and 7-2 in the SAC. Their underclass counterparts, the Freshman Volleyball Team, coached by Larry Bleiler, went 18-1 on the season and won the SAC championship. Coach Titzer said the reserve team seemed to lack the ' drive ' for the game. " Fundamentally, the girls were very solid. They could hit, set, spike, . . . carry out the basics very well, " said Titzer. In addi- tion, she said, " They just were not aggres- sive enough on the court, especially at the net. " " This team had a lot of talent, " Titzer said. Because of that, she said there was not a " best player " on the team. " At the end of the season, " Titzer said, " the girls voted on the best players and that ' s how we decided. " Tina Williams was voted most improved player; Carrie Dahman was selected best server; Jill Karasek and Lou- ise Steinkamp were voted best offensive player and best defensive player, respec- tively; and Lori Derheimer received the mental attitude award. For Titzer, the season was very pleasing. " From the beginning, I saw improvement in the team as a whole, and they practiced their skills to improve even more, " Titzer said. Improvement did not come in just the skills, however. Said Titzer, " Their (the teams ' ) consistency also improved as the season progressed. " On the reserve team this year were elev- en sophomores and one junior, which is a fairly young line-up. Commenting on next season, Titzer said, " With only four girls returning on varsity next year, some of the reserves will move up without any varsity experience at all.

The season got off to an exceptional start, vi ith only one loss in the first five encounters. " The girls were really consis- tant in playing their games, " Coats said. " Stacey Hughes and Lisa Howe were prob- ably the most consistant, though, " she added. In contrast, however, there were some areas of the game that the Lady Spikers lacked consistency in, such as aggressive- ness. " We really needed to be more aggres- sive up by the net, " Coach Coats said. She added, " Vt ' e needed to get up there and hit the ball instead of just standing there say- ing, ' Are we supposed to hit this little ball? " The season brought numerous injuries " Ggh!

She said, " The team was a really tight group, so when someone got injured and had to set out, they pulled together and worked hard- er. They were always pulling together and helping each other through the tough times. " Overall, Coach Coats said she was really pleased with the season. Said Coats, " The season ended on a high note with the two sectional wins over Bishop Dwenger and Concordia, especially Concordia because of them beating us earlier in the season. " She then added, " With all things consid- ered, I think the girls played really hard all season long! " The varsity squad will be losing eight girls next year, but with the advancements from the reserve team and the incoming freshmen, it all balances out to another great season. — Steve Edwards OUR BEST SHOT 0 Girls ' QOLF: (row ;; Juanlta Law san Kelly, Coach Dave Riley, Heidi son.

The girls ' golf team, coached by Dave Riley, compiled an 11-5 record and turned what looked to be a dismal season into a trip to regionals. This is the sixth consecu- tive year that the Lady Linksters have ad- vanced to regional competition. The season began at the Northrop Invita- tional, where Northrop placed eighth. " The girls were really down at that point, " said Riley. With steady improvement from that point on, the team was optimistic going into sectionals, where they placed third be- hind Snider and Dwenger. That showing allowed them to advance to regionals. " Regionals was not good at all for us. No one played well, " commented Riley. The team placed eighth out of nine teams. Leading the Lady Linksters was Senior Amy Chambers. She had the team ' s best average and came within one stroke of competing in the state individual finals. Chambers was selected for the All-Summit Athletic Conference team by a vote of SAC coaches.

The reserve team, despite its inexperi- ence, posted a respectable record of 9-3. The lack of experience was mostly due to none of the middle schools, or ' feeder ' schools, having wrestling programs for the freshmen and sophomores to get experi- ence in the past years. As the season pro- gressed, however, the teams did very well in the tournaments. They placed in the top three in almost every meet, and several of the grapplers went to the championship matches in the meets. Stated Head Coach Sam DiPrimio, " I see a bright future for these boys.

Senior Lola Young came very close to this score with a 9.70 on the vault. Other gymnasts coming close to this score were Ann McElroy, Shannon Carey, Jada Little, and Stacey Frick. " I don ' t think that any- one in Ft. Wayne could have done better, " said Hornak.

While on the team, a player gets a chance to improve the weak elements of his play, while he polishes his already mastered skills. Said Reserve Head Coach Jim Spencer, " A pro- gram ' s priorities aren ' t straight if the team is measured by its win-loss record. Rather, it should be measured by the player im- provement, and some of our players im- proved greatly over the season. " Said Sophomore Tory Harris on improving his skills, " Each day I try to do something better than the day before. " One key to having a good season is having a team that plays well together.

It takes a long time for them to learn and understand the system and our ' Bruin ' style of playing. " Academically, life as a freshman can sometimes be a rough transition from mid- dle school days. The same is true from an athletic standpoint.

Once again they beat the Redskins, but just by two, 56-54. Their next foes were the New Haven Bulldogs. Northrop held the lead for most of the game, but their down- fall turned out to be free throw shooting. They missed a total of 18 free throws, and ended up losing, 59-51. The Bruins were definitely a senior- based team. Seven seniors played regular- ly, and four of those usually started. Front line men for the squad were Seniors, Chris Lovelace, Tornell Moore, J.C. Harris, and Corey Martin. Chad Becker, the only junior to start, was a forward. Starting guards were usually Lamont Tolbert, the team ' s leading scorer, and Senior Andy Norris; and John Ellington was the first guard off the bench.

This year the main focus of both the reserve and freshmen girls ' basketball teams was on teamwork. This method ap- parently worked because the reserve team only lost two games, and the freshmen only four. As freshman guard Tracy Haugk said, " At the beginning we weren ' t really a team, but at the end, we really pulled to- gether and worked. " Mr. Phil Ginder, the reserve coach, was pleased with the 1987-88 season. Said Ginder, " The kids worked well together. We played two freshmen and the rest were sophomores. We played well in every ball game except two. " The season was an important one for the Lady Bruins. The reserve team helped the varsity win the Summit Athletic Confer- ence tournament, and the freshmen had a lot to deal with. The freshmen had to come together and work as a team, not as play- ers from different schools. Many times, freshmen have a hard time adjusting to the togetherness of them and their middle school rivals, not to mention that they have to change their style of play. In addi- tion, this was the first year Coach Lisa Plumb, a former Northrop player, had ever coached. Yet as Freshman Amanda Hale says, " I think she (Coach Plumb) did a great job. " The Lady Bruins had a lot of talent and consistantly improved their basketball skills throughout the season. Sophomore Dawn Kiel says, " We had a pretty good year. Everyone improved over their perfor- mance of last year. " Many of the players will even further improve their basketball skills at various camps, held at Indiana or Purdue Universities during the summer months.

Such is the case with Northrop ' s Lady Bruins and head coach Dave Riley. Although this year was a year of rebuild- ing for thenn, our ladies proved themselves to be very strong players, with the ability to excell past even their own expectations. The team as a whole was a powerful force this year, with a very talented starting five and a strong bench. Led by Vanessa Wil- liams and Meridith Burt, the varsity team came out of the season with an impressive record of 18 wins and only five losses over- all, and 7-2 in the S,A,C. This is the fourth best season in the history of Morthrop girls ' basketball, and was reached mainly be- cause of the ladies ' further development in both skill and confidence as a team. Coach Riley said that the girls had con- tinually improved and moved on to greater heights, both as a team and individually throughout the season. As a team, they upset previously undefeated Huntington North, who had been ranked eighth in the state. They were also awarded an honor- able mention by the Associated Press, and finished in third place in the Summit Ath- letic Conference, Individually, Williams made the all-S.A.C, team, and Burt made both the all S.A.C, team and all-Area teams as well. These accomplishments were well- deserved by both players. They worked hard throughout the season and contribut- ed greatly to the teams ' overall success. However, the achievements of Williams and Burt might not have been as easily attained if it weren ' t for the strong support of their teammates. As Senior Jill Flowers expressed, " The whole team had a positive attitude and worked hard all season.

Most administrators agree that it takes a lot of time, diligence, and most of all, patience. Such Is the case with Nor- throp ' s Athletic Director, Mark Schoeff. The job of athletic director includes a tremendous amount of responsibilities. Schoeff ' s responsibilities include the scheduling of games, hiring of officials, and the transportation to the away games. Scheduling for varsity football and boys ' varsity basketball takes place three to four years in advance. " After an initial schedule for a season is set up, it ' s easy for us to follow that schedule year after year, " Schoeff said. He added that he follows that same routine for each of Northrop ' s six- teen different sports. Mr. Schoeff is very proud to be a part of Northrop High School. Said Schoeff, " For the seventeen years that Northrop has been around, I don ' t think any school in the state can match our athletic achievements for that same period of time. " Adding, he said, " And I like to think that 1 played a major role in the success. " For the upcoming years, Schoeff said some changes may occur in Indiana high school athletics. One change is the addi- tion of soccer, now a club that Northrop is strong in, as a sport sanctioned by the IHSAA. However, it could be one or two years before that happens. " Before a sport becomes sanctioned by the IHSAA, a sur- vey is conducted and if fifty percent of the member schools want the sport, the (IH- SAA) committee will take further action, " Schoeff said. Mr. Schoeff came to Northrop, like many other teachers did, in 1971 after Cen- tral High School closed its doors. He said he really enjoys his job. " I really love my job, " Schoeff said. " And 1 wouldn ' t change a thing, " he added. — Steve Edwards Athletic Director Mark Schoeff puts in valuable hours behind his desk preparing for athletic events at Morthrop. photo Tami Clark Basketball manager John Reed helps the basketball Sweeping the floors at basketball games is just one of games run smoothly during home and away games, the many jobs the custodians do to help make Nor photo Tan i Clark throp look perfect. photo Tami Clark % OCR BEST SHOT Coaches ' wives very happy Anita DiPrimio, Sharon Riley, Dottie Stavreti, and Cheri Trammel all hold double roles at Nor- throp, so to speak.

Freshman Tracy Haugk listens to instructions given to her as she takes the field, pho- to Abbie Decker P erfection A new powerhouse in Indiana high school athletics is on the rise. This sensation is the Northrop Softball Team, coached by Mr. Bob Walleen. Only in its second year, a tradition is being formed — a tradition of excellence. A year ago, these ladies burst onto the scene with a perfect conference record and S.A.C. title. This year, they duplicated the feat and went on to be ranked fourth state- wide. From the first day of practice this season, the outlook was good. Each starter returned with a year of experience and a season of development. " Our philosophy was to have fun and enjoy it, " said Assis- tant Coach Jim Spencer, " and they gave a hundred percent at all times, and their record showed it. Practice everyday after school from three until five at Northrop was where it came together for the team. Said Sopho- more Jenny Norman, " They ' ve showed me how to throw better and improve my bat- ting. " The team ' s success was due to a Junior Heather Mills catches a ground ball in the heat of an important game. photo Abbie Decker. combination of hardwork and natural tal- ent. Offense became a trademark for the team with scores that doubled, and some- times tripled, that of their opponents. The hot bats on the team belonged to Sopho- more Delia Kinslow and Senior Meridith Burt. Junior Stacey Hughes and Senior Chrissy Saunders were also talents at the plate, giving Northrop many of their hits. The opposition ' s low scores came as a re- sult of Northrop ' s outstanding pitching. Led by Senior Jill Shappell, with an earned run average of 1.49, the team ' s pitchers kept the scoring to a minimum. The year ' s highlight was the clobbering of the then fifth-ranked DeKalb Lady Barons, showing to the spectators and the rest of the area that this Lady Bruin team was for real. This year showed to many people the success that such young teams can have, if they only try. The girls feel they earned the defense of their Summit Athletic Con- ference Title outright. — Sean McGann OtJR BEST SHOT © B eginnings Reserve diamondmen turn rough start into a season of winning, learning " 1 feel the team did an outstanding job with some great effort. The coaching was good and there were more fans than ex- pected. " These are the words of Junior Varsity Baseball player Jim Hontz. It took hard work and patience to devel- op a strong JV team, and with a record of 13-5 it would seem that is just what we have. However, Coach Park Ginder says there were major problems that plagued the team and immaturity was the biggest. Ginder explained that early on, much of team ' s practice time was used because of having to deal with immature attitudes and actions. " We talked to them, that seemed to help, or sometimes we ' d make them run. " The " we " Ginder referred to is Assis- tant Coach Ron DelaCuesta and himself. Both coaches worked together to initiate a new angle on teaching the team. Instead of the " winning is everything " attitude, the guys were taught fundamentals in a train- ing camp atmosphere. " The purpose of JV is to prepare the players for the varsity team, " Ginder stated. DelaCuesta was " pleasantly surprised " about the amount of success the team had with the amount of natural talent he had to work with. Although not as much raw tal- ent was present this year, with the help of a few key players, the team was able to pull ahead and enjoy a winning season. " I think we came around as a team, " said Freshman Greg Piatt. " We started off at point zero and gradually increased, " he added. Pitching was a strong asset for the team this year. Several of the players including Doug Couch, Mike Mendler, and Scott Par- is led the team in this area. Ginder com- mented, " If you can ' t pull the ball across the plate, you ' re in trouble. Overall, despite the early problems, the team enjoyed a very beneficial season. The team came together, and the coaches helped all the players to realize that hard- work does payoff. — Amy Esterline " Ggh!

Head Coach Chris Stavreti ' s men finished the season at 20-5-1, with an Summit Athletic Conference championship to their credit. Stavreti ' s explanation on the team ' s suc- cess was simple, " We really never went into a slump offensively. When one guy was struggling, another picked up the team with a clutch hit. " Leading the team most of the year was Junior Brent Berglund, who made the All- S.A.C. second team, and Senior Ryan Wedge, who was made the first All-S.A.C. team. Of his idea on the team ' s success, Berglund said, " We put pressure on the other teams and made them make the mistakes. " Besides offensive power, the team had some mainstays on the mound. The pitch- ing staff for the Bruins in 1988 consisted of all seniors: Dan Trent, Dan Schenkel, Dave Johnson, Ryan Wedge, and All-S.A.C. first team member, Mike Klopfenstein. Johnson thought that the success was due in part to two factors. " I think we stayed away from the other teams having big innings, and our pitching staff had a lot of experience. That helped us, " said Johnson. As S.A.C. champions, the mainstays in the Bruin line-up were Junior Mike Holom at third base; Sophomore Heath Bowlin at shortstop; Sophomore Jamie Holland at second base; Berglund at first base; and Junior Steve McCullough behind the plate. The outfield consisted of Seniors Wedge and Klopfenstein; and Juniors Chad Kohli and Jeff Kirc hner. This season brought an abundance of youth to the team, and along with that came some valuable learning experiences. The many wins and the S.A.C. champion- ship helped the young members grow " old " , so to speak, and it added one more memory for the senior members to look back on. — Chad Becker It ' s out of here!

This year ' s team was a very young team with the leadership of freshmen. Amy Anspaugh, Melissa Clark, Rachel Williams, and Sonya and Tonya Shepherd. The team placed third out of seven schools in the Summit Athletic Conference meet, and many team members advanced to sectionals. Leading the team in the sprints were Sonya Shepherd, Tonya Shep- herd, Monica Johnson, and Monique John- son. In distance running, Linette Little also went to sectionals. In the field events, were Rachel Williams, Amy Anspach, and Melis- sa Clark. Tia Glass was the Summit Athlet- ic Conference champion in the high jump. Coach Blanks said, " The talent was there, they just had to pull it together. " The team advanced to regionals and placed tenth out of 58 participating schools. Regionals were held at Spuller Stadium here at Northrop on May, 25. Run- ners that advanced to state were Monica Johnson, who placed third in the 100-yard dash; and Alicia Harris, she placed fifth in the long jump. The 400-meter relay team, consisting of Monica Johnson, Vanessa Williams, Sonya Shepherd, and Tonya Shepherd, placed second.

Looking at talent versus success, it was a pretty good season, said Coach Bob Trammel of the 1988 Boys ' Track Team. This season was weaker than previous Northrop seasons, mostly due to the team ' s one major weakness — lack of sen- ior leadership. This was a difficulty for the team because in past years, the teams had been led by seniors with years of experi- ence, but this year the team only had three seniors. Coach Trammel said, " We had plenty of good talent, and now, after this year, we ' ll have the experience, and you really need both of those elements to win. " The team also suffered from a series of injuries that left some of its key members unable to compete. " It helps in upcoming years, though, because many of our fresh- man had to compete on the senior level because of the injuries, " said Trammel. Said Senior Coy Herald, " We did a pretty good job. . .We had some injuries during the season that hurt us, but we, as a team, kept going and never gave up. " The team did realize that without much experience, winning would be difficult. Fin- ishing the season 5-1 in the S.A.C., though, was a good standing for such a youthful team. Their only loss was to Snider, the area sectional and regional champs. " Al- though it would have been great to beat favored Snider, " Trammel said, " We weren ' t discouraged by the guys because we weren ' t really in a position to win a city or sectional championship. " Although the guys are looking to next year, they have to realize that this year was a learning experience that will help them next year. In support, Trammel said, " The young men worked hard and did just about all they could. A certain degree of maturity was developed over the season. " — Susie Anderson Up.

Said Head Coach Bruce Oliver, " I feel that the dedication and hard work by all mem- bers of the varsity and reserve teams led to their improvement.

Kim Colchin, senior, is an assistant teacher in a four year-old classroom at the Cresent Avenue Week- day School. She plans on going to college and says that her part-time job does have something to do with a career that she would like to pursue in the future. Although most obtained their jobs on their own and without any parental influence, there are very few students who feel that their parents disapprove of their part-time job. In fact, parents do receive at least one benefit from their son ' s or daughter ' s part-time job: " They are glad that I ' m not asking for money all of the time, " said Regina Drudge, senior. There are some limitations set though. For instance, Todd Kortte, junior, stated that " my dad won ' t let me work on weekdays because of school and grades, but he has no problem with me working on weekends. " The question " could you stand to quit your job? " was very controversial. Some said yes, but others have real financial difficulties that they have to deal with and so they could not. The biggest factor in keeping that job seemed to be the question of that weekly pay check. — Kim Critchlow rc0 Where do merchandise all the clothes go?

What to do for fun in the Fort? The Fort is such a big place, bigger than you think. You would think there would be a lot to do in this city. Well, we ' ll see. Don ' t blink or you will miss it. That ' s right, you ' re entering Hicksville, Ohio. Home of The Palace. Located about 45 minutes away from the Fort. You and your friends pile in and get ready to party. The Palace provides entertainment for all. For all who are 18 and older. Yep! You have to be 18 to get in. The size being not so big, you have to cram your way around. Stand, sit, squat, or what ever you do, I assure you, you will have a good time. The Blue Mountain Cafe, located in downtown Fort Wayne on the landing provides good live entertainment and unique choices of eats. No cover charge required — it ' s just a nice warm feeling kind of place to hang. Over the years The Mountain has become more and more popular. Rock America used to be a popular place for dancing. It still may be popular. The Rock (as it is known) is pretty good size. It gives all the teenagers a place to go dance and socialize, if you ' re lucky, you may even be introduced to someone new. ' Spare time? What spare time? I lis- ten to music, and go out with friends. " — Pam Harding, Freshman A friend ' s house is the second choice if there is nothing to do. You and your buddies can get together and mess around or just sit around while mom ' s out, talk while the hi-fi pumps out your favorite tunes. The mall is a place to go shopping. Not really. Adolescents go there to hang out around the ice rink hoping to pick up a future friend. Some go to lessen the intelligence. I ' m speaking of the keeper of lost I.Q. points. Tilt. Tilt (mall arcade) enhances kids ' minds by attracting them with such intense games as Contra, Road Blaster, Double Dragon, and Rampager. If you ' re not into all that, you probably go and visit friends who work at the food court, eventually purchasing some alright pizza at Sbarro ' s. As you can see Ft. Wayne is filled with excitement and is such a happening place. O.K.! — Steve Rigsby PINNACLE (85 BxaeMsMib Ut Ha Uawuxm When most people think of recognition, they think of a basketball player being named most valuable player in a game or a member of the speech team taking first place, but few people think achievements in the class- room deserving of such mer- it. Two years ago, Mrs. Mansbach, Mrs. Galvin, and others in the English depart- ment thought about ways of recognizing those students who excell in areas of their school work. The way they chose to commend these students is with the Stu- dents of Excellence pro- gram. Every month, a list of stu- dents awarded this honor is announced.

" — Susie An- derson, freshman and the area in which they received the award is made and posted in the main of- fice window . Those honored for the first time are given an orange pennant proclaim- ing them a " Student of Ex- cellence " , each additional time the student is honored, they receive a ribbon.

There are other students, however, who, like Senior Dave Has- tings, feel that, " Being a Stu- dent of Excellence has been very gratifying to me. I feel like I have endeavored to seek out the best possible education this institution has to offer . " Others feel that being recognized shows them that their teachers are paying attention to their work. " Being chosen to be a Student of Excellence makes me feel as though my teachers are noticing my ac- complishments, " comment- ed Tom Szymczak, sopho- more. Brett Fischer feels that, " ... being a Student of Excellence has shown me that all of my hard work has paid off. " Senior Gina Snowberger says that the Students of Ex- cellence program is an asset because, " It gives recogni- tion to those students who come to school every day and work hard in their class- es not just the sports stars.

Most teachers side with Dr. Williams in the view of the program ' s worth, they feel that the program is de- signed to recognise those students in their classes that don ' s always get A + ' s but work hard to understand the topic that is being studied. While the mixed feelings, between the students and teachers, over the program may never be resolved, it seems that with administra- tive backing, the Students of Excellence program is here to stay. — Ben Kessler ,S6J PINNACLE Co cqe Cmih OpUixmk " College not only provides skill needed for success, but it shows prospective employers that the students has perserver- ence and dedication — two qualities necessary for success In the business world, " claimed a local businessman. College is truly important; and it seemed that the students of Northrop High School knew it. Seventy-three percent of the Bruins go on to school after Northrop: 49% to a four year college program, 7% to a two- year college program, and 17% to a trade or technical school. want to go to col- lege because I don ' t want to flip burgers all my life " — Shannon Ha- gerty, junior This compares to a 50% total nationwide. Northrop ' s students feel that college will be serious, not just fun and games. " I ' m getting most of my partying out in high school so when I ' m down at Ball State University I can con- centrate on my communica- tions major, " commented Sean McGann. " I ' m going for an education, too, " claimed Senior Steve Rigsby. " College is to further advance my education, not just party. " Mr. Tom Gordon, senior counselor, says that he tries to get every student at Northrop into a college. Even if the stu- dent cannot be accepted to hi s her first choice for a col- lege, Gordon says that he can get everyone into some college. " The two major problems of today for college enrollment that the students claim are money and grades, " says Gor- don. " Indiana-Purdue Fort Wayne is inexpensive — not only are the classes (inexpen- sive), but students can live at home and not pay for room and board. Most students can also get some sort of scholarship: for grades, sports, or whatev- Other sources of money for college are guaranteed student loans programs, sponsored by the government and co-op pro- grams. The student loans are set up so students do not have to begin paying back the mon- ey until their education is com- plete. Co-op programs work by having a student attend college for two years and then work for one year, for example, at a work place in cooperation with the college. Grades can also be over- come. Gordon says that many students have gone on to post- high school education with straight D ' s. There is no guar- antee of not flunking out, though. We have all heard our teach- ers give the " You Won ' t Be When students have finished their studies from classes they can catch a game of I.

" It ' s the first time the students are away from home and they can make their own right or wrong decisions. Also, the in- structors merely present the material and it is entirely up to the student to research and take advantage of it, " ex- plained former college profes- sor Mr. Robert Lovell. Though most Bruins who go to college enter an Indiana one, no Indian a college and only one Big Ten college are in the top ten academically, according to U.S. News and World Report. Those ten are: (I) Stanford; (2) Harvard; (3) Yale; (4) Princeton; (5) University of California, Ber- kely; (6) Dartmouth; (7) Duke; (8) University of Chicago and University of Michigan, Ann Ar- bor; (10) Brown. The University of Illinois at Champaign ranks number eleven, but no other Big Ten schools rate in the top twenty-five. Although Northrop has about the same number of col- lege entrants per year, Gordon " College is essen- tial for success and monetary value in today ' s world. " — Karin Rittenberg, senior says that generally there seems to be a downward trend for col- lege attendance. — Jeff Lovell Even college life at Indiana University in Bloomington permits time out of its bust schedule for a little fun photo Tami Clark THE PINNACLE ' ' FASHION Faikm lutl % Poit in, i%A Fashion changed dra- matically in the 1987-88 school year. We saw an " uplift " of hemlines. Skirts got shorter and to accentuate the revisited length of the sixties and early seventies sweaters also took form getting shorter and shaplier. Color plunged toward the earth tones highlight- ing a lot of olive green, mustard and coco brown mixed with pastel shades of cream, peach, yellow, and dusty rose for spring. The neons and bright at- tire became passe (it was time) and simplicity be- came a key factor. Accessories were kept to a minimum sticking with the traditional metals of gold and silver. The plastic " SWATCH " of the early eighties dissap- peared and was replaced with leather and gold watches bearing resem- blance to grandfather with ' ' Arsenio Hall is to- tally spinach. I love his outrageous be- havior and his wick- ed clothes. " — Delia Kirkman and Paulma Grunden, sophomores their roman numerals and astrological scenes. Pearls and classic jewlery had a revival, it became obvious that plastic and detailed was not and simple and classic was haute. We saw the death of the paisley (except for in men ' s ties and pajamas) and stripes — don ' t worry give it five years it will re- turn. Patterns were mini- mized to that of necessity and fabrics to that of ex- pensive. Although fashion didn ' t do anything wild (except raise the hemline) this year was a milestone for it set fashion back at base one allowing designers to once again dream up ideas in dayglo colors. — Karin Rittenberg When asked who they felt was the most fashion- able person of 1987, this is what the students at Northrop had to say. Michelle Kivi, senior: " Bruce Willis — he ' s so casual, but he ' s still so hip. " Angi Scott, sophomore: " Lisa Bonet — she ' s so awesome, she ' s cool, and she shows her personality and originality in her clothes. " Chad Becker, junior: " Mr. Keim — I like his blend.

Even with elevating ticket prices today ' s music scene is alive and happening in Fort Wayne. An estimated $1,120,000 were spent on ticket sales alone last year. Rockers in Fort Wayne had a wide variety of acts to see. Everything from funky pop sounds of INXS to the heavy metal sounds of Kiss. 1988 looks to be an even bigger year for Fort Wayne concert goers.

Kiss, as usual, had one of the largest and most decorative stages yet. The set contained old classics like " Detroit Rock City " and " Love Gun " , to newer ones like " Crazy, Crazy, Crazy Nights " and and a remake of Led Zeppelin ' s " Whole Lotta Love. " All this was laced with fire, bombs, lights, the qiant Kiss sign, and approximately 120 decibles. — Dave Witte PINNACLE Aerosmith — Aerosmith came back this year with Perman- ant Vacation, their biggest selling album in some time. The supporting concert was a spectacle of music and activity with the new " clean " Steven Tyler running around like a crazed lunatic while singing tunes like: " Dude " (looks like a lady) and " Dream On " . Part of Aerosmith ' s regained popularity is due to their newest hit " Dude " (Looks Like a Lady).

You need something to escape the everyday ho-hum-dull- drums, you need a vacation. But where would people really like to go? Most responses were toward a warm climate, with the few exceptions such as Mark Kerr ' s ideal trip to Pluto for sightseeing. Dawn Miller would like to go " Carri- bean diving with any available surfer dudes. " This response seems to be a fairly reasonable dream, so watch out Carribean surfers. Along the same lines, Marge O ' Connel desires to " bronze her body on the shores of Ja- maica. " Now for the wild side.

Some people just beconne loud and rude, but oth- ers are more creative. In a school the size of Northrop, people with odd talents tend to show up, and at Northrop they do show up. Take for exam- ple the kid who blows spit bubbles off his tongue or The Living Pretzel who can put his legs behind his head, and drive a car. There are others too, poms who do things that just have to be seen to believe, along with those who cross their eyes, touch their nose with their tongue, and a host of others. To many some of these people may seem obnoxious, but these creative abili- ties can and do serve a purpose; to make us laugh, and a laugh is one of the greatest pleasures on earth. — David Witte Floating through class Cheri Hinton displays levita- tional skills. photo Tami Clark Rich Mathieson exhibits his dexterity by driving with his leg behind his head. photo David Witte % PirSMACLE Northrop ' s first-ever Pinnacle staff: Sean McGann, Stacey Ferro, and David Witte. photo Tami Clark One Final Word . . .

Pinnacle is the " supreme best " , and that ' s what this pub- lication was about — the su- preme best of the students of Northrop. We covered every- thing from the way students talk to the activities they liked or disliked. When coming up with ideas for the Pinnacle we tried to cov- er many aspects of the lives of students at Northrop, and to find the little things that may not be remembered in years to come.

The stu- dents, the teachers, the ad- ministrators, and every oth- er person who puts their eight hours in at Northrop nine months out of the year contribute to Northrop ' s success. None could exist without the others. They all come together to form Northrop High School. The students make up the majority. They come to high school to get an education but they leave with much, much more. As graduates ' they not only have an educa- tion but also have experi- ences that will last them a lifetime. Perhaps the most important things students will leave with though are the friendships they have formed over four years. Friends are what makes high school bearable. Some- one to talk with between classes, eat lunch with and generally be seen with is what high school friendships are about. What would high school be like without your best friends? It ' s too scary to think about. So go on, turn the page and find all of those special people who are called ' friend ' . These same people also give something to Northrop in return. They give Nor- throp the winning records, reputations, and honors it is known for.

With the Winter Semi-Formal they had to do the decorations, hire a disc jockey, sell tickets, and much more. The theme had to be decided. To make a dance work suc- cessfully you have to have the students show up. They had to go through all the prepara- tion for the MORP. Both of those dances had to have a special touch. Along with this they also have several other responsibilities. These included deciding on where to take the class trip, holding an elec- tion to decide senior superlatives, and also coming up with the class motto. But even before all of the work of the job starts, the officers must first work to be elect- ed. In a class of 5 1 2 people, getting a majority of people to vote for the same person is hard. The people who finally make it are those who were persistant and worked hard to get every vote. — Julie Sawvel Top: Megan Brown from Left: Lisa Stewart, Robin Dunn, Diana Diffendarfer.

They scored so well that they now have the opportunity to represent Nor- throp as National Merit Scholarship finalists. The national recognition for this competition is given to approxi- mately fifteen thousand students out of over twenty-six million students who take the PSAT. Meg and Mike had the honor of competing for the scholarship last year. The judges de- cisions are based on academic records, self-descriptions and infor- mation about " extra " activities that they are involved in. Another factor included in the decision are their edu- cational goals and interests. The semi-finalists who show the strongest variety of abilities for quali- ties needed for success, leadership and personal accomplishments will have the best chance. Brown was involved in such activi- ties as Student Council, tennis, the fail play and the spring musical. She was a class officer and she works part-time at Parkview Hospital. While Braun was not involved in so many school-related activites, he had a part-time job at a local law firm and worked very hard on his family ' s farm. — Cory Scott — Kim Critchlow Seniors Mike Braun and Megan Brown, [National Merit Scholarship Finalists, pose proudly. photo Tami Clark Virginia Lehman Calvin Lewis Julie Linnemeier Neil Linsky Dawn Loew Kathleen Lohr Virginia Lott Christoph Lovelace Jeri Lovell Teresa Lucas Heather Madru Sean Maher Marc Malone Michelle Malone Steven Manos David Markulis Angela Marquart Kelly Marshall Martin Corey Richard Mathieson BEST OF FRIENDS Dennis Maurer Patrick May Eiizabettn McCory Sean McGann Kellie McGary Gretchen McKinzit James McMeans Brian McNeal Daniel Merchant Anita Miles David Miller Jennifer Miller Richard Miller Lisa Minnich Kerri Miser Best of friends show their hap piness in being together, pho- to Dr. Chavis % BEST OF Derrick Moden Jennifer Moliere David Moore Jil Moore Sheila Moore Trenia Morgan Michael Moring Douglas Morrow Brandon Murphy Michael Murphy Todd Muster Kathryn Myers Steven Myers Genevieve Nance Beth Mash Stephany Nash Lisa Neal Penny Neel Stacie Neumann Tuan Newlin Tracey Norman Andrew Norris Mary Novak Margo Nussbaum Randy O ' Neal Shelley O ' Neal NeShae O ' Quinn David Orn Courtney Pace Valerie Pacer BEST OF FRIENDS in ' Karen Palmeter Michele Parisot Kevin Park David Parker Brian Parkison Shawn Paschall Shelisa Paschall Michelle Pasko Dheeresh Patel Christina Patty Wendy Pennington Jill Perillo Michael Perkins Gregory Perry Tabitha Perry Jim Pequignot Michelle Phillips Micole Pierce Sean Pitsch Michael Poppy Clair Posey Mary Powell Londa Presley Pamala Prewett Michele Prideaux Jennifer Putman Sirojith Ranasinghe Lisa Rash Sandra Ray Edward Redmon BEST OF FRIENDS Gregory Reed Lori Reichard Kris Wunrow takes time out ot pose for a picture. photo TamI Clark Michael Repp Tami Reuille Luke Riedhart Scott Rhoad Dawn Rice Elizabeth Richard Elizabeth Richards Malechia Richberg Monique Richberg Stephan Rigsby Debra Riley Kann Rittenberg Shalon Roberson Matthew Roberts Mark Robertson Scott Robinson Patrick Rodgers Rachelle Rodriguez Eric Rogers Felecia Rorer Matthew Rupert Todd Ruppert BEST OF FRIEINDS ( " 3 Seniors show their other side for a pep session during home- coming week- photo Tami Clark Andrea Rusk Nicole Salas Mary Satre Shristina Saunders Julie Sawvel Daniel Schenkel Shannon Seibert Michelle Seitz Jill Shappell Banjamin Shaw James Sherbert Thomas Shervert Janice Shirk Aaron Shively Brett Shuler % BEST OF FRIENDS Charles Shull David Sims Darlene Skinner Christine Slater Carmen Smith Christoph Smil Hope Smith Laura Smith Marti Smith Ralph Smnith Stephen Smith Robert Snider Joseph Snyder Tracy Snyder Brian Sowders Dan Sower Tonya Sowie Andrea Spaulding Dennis Springer John Steinkamp Ramon Stevens Miles Steward Lisa Stewart Douglas Stier Michele Stoller Joseph Strahm Stacey Stuckey Robert Sullivan Tessa Swiftney Tyson Swiftney BEST OF FRIENDS David Syndram Laura Szymczak Trina Tackett Matthew Taylor Bonnie Terry Amy Thompson Anthony Threat Brent Thurman Kevin Tkacz Tammie Tomkinson Kimberly Tosconi Adrienne Travis Danny Trent Alisa Trotter Dynita Tubbs Fletcher Opshaw Deborah Van Dam Lesley Vanaman Lori Vanaman Michelle Vanhorn Jose Vargas Mark Verville Julie Waak John Waddell Bradley Wadkins Timothy Wagner Rodney Walker Michelle Wall Helen Warmkessel 116 Clotilda Washington BEST OF FRIENDS Ryan Wedge Kristophe Wegman Lara Wegner Matthew Weiss Tricia Wells Jennifer Welsh Brian Wesolowski Matt Wheeler Jennifer Whitacre Michelle Whitnnan Scott Willett Cassandra Williams Chad Williams Vanessa Williams Jeffery Wilson Lisa Wilson Cherilyn Wirges David Witte Melissa Wittwer Gregory Wolf Sloan Wolff Roger Wood Rolonda Woods Kristin Wunrow Elias Ybarra Tiffany Yeiser Lola Young Rosemary Zeidler Mark Zuber BEST OF FRIENDS Senior Gretchen Dellinger smiles as she shows her spirit during homecoming week. photo Tami Clarl VICTORIA ALVAREZ — Yearbook 11, 12.

Many students spend the bulk of their stay at Northrop complaining about one thing or another. One major problem Senior Tami Clark came up with was the lack of soap in the bathrooms. She said, " How do they expect us to wash our hands without any soap? " Senior Matt Roberts cites, " the abu- sive and vindictive language of the Sat- urday school supervisors " as his big- gest complaint. But Senior Kurlie Hitchcock summed it up by simply saying, " we just don ' t have enough freedom. " Even though these people came up with valid complaints, they also found some good things to say about Nor- throp. Tami Clark says, " having a large sampling of electives to broaden peo- ple ' s horizons " makes Northrop one of the best academic schools in the city. Along the same lines, Kurlie Hitchcock says that " having strong student-teach- er relationships " make Northrop the great place it is. But Senior Jenny Welsh said what every woman in the building has proba- bly thought at one time or another. She said the best thing about Northrop is, " being greeted in the morning by the most handsome and the best dressed principal in the state.

Well . . . Homework. The thing most students think teachers developed to torture them. Most students have devised excuses to cover up the fact that they have not done it. Of course, the older the student, the more excuses they have. Seniors, being the oldest high school students are the best people to interview for excuses. Senior Dave Johnson had several original ex- cuses. He said that one of his most suc- cessful excuses was, " my dog is paper trained and ... " but his fantasy excuse was, " I was driving down the road with my window open and I hit a deer. The force from impact made my homework fly out of the window. " Wendy Ford, senior said that honesty is the best policy and she just tells her teach- ers " I didn ' t do it. " Other excuses vary from " I left my books at school " to " my dad used it to start a fire in the fireplace " . Athletes use their particular sport as an excuse. One basketball player says she uses, " I had two games this week and prac- tice in between. " Most excuses do not work because the teachers have heard them all before. But every once in a while a student gets lucky and gets a teacher who has a good sense of humor and lets him off the hook. — Robin Dunn Bryan Flares (sitting) and Ron Baker work together in Problem Solving homework photo, Waiters Studio Margue Prutt Lenni Radke Shawn Radu Andrew Ramsey Chris Raptis Kimberly Raupfer Cynthia Rayl Sallie Redmaster Susan Reece John Reed Daniel Relue Lynnette Relue Jennifer Renforth Angelina Reynolds Peter Reynolds Michelle Rice Rita Rice Heidi Richard David Rickert Robin Robbins Michael Roberts Jeffrey Robertson Kathryn Robertson Shirley Robinson Derrick Roe Brian Roth Eddie Rouse Mark Ruppert Mary Rushing Melinda Salkeld Elizabeth Sandmaier Eric Saple Mark Scales Timothy Scaizo Susan Schalt Robert Scheff Jennifer Scherer Carrie Schmidt Laurie Schultz Roger Schwartz Teresa Scott Mark Seller John Sewell Theresa Shaffer Wesley Shie Carol Sibole : THE BEST OF FRIEMDS Michael Sierks Elizabeth Sims Brett Singer Kristen Sloan Brian Smith Dawn Smith James Smith Matthew Smith Molly Spal e Leonell Sparks Lavone Starewich Amy Stearns Louise Steinkamp Lydia Stevenson Dena Stewart Cheryl Stone Tammy Stone Cynthia Strawbridge Erika Stuart Jeanette Suggs Jennifer Suter Keith Suttle Jama Swalley Micketric Switzer Ja Bridget Taylor mes Tchinski Brian Tepper Michelle Terry nnifer Thatcher Scott Thatcher David Till Scott Till John Tingley Stephanie Todd Krishna Toirac Angela Townsend Tricia Townsend Paul Tucker Robert Tunin Christoph Turner Laureena VanZant Heather VanEvery Laura Vandenberg Kirk Vangilder Mark Vanhorn Matthew Varner Christine Verhest Rachel Villareal Georril Vollen Kenneth Vorndran Vance Waggoner David Wagner Michelle Wakley Michelle Walden Angela Waldrop Eric Walker William Walker Rebecca Warner Andrew Warren Jeffrey Waters Michael Weaver Christoph Weber Matthew Wertman Lisa Wesolowski Dawn Westfield Matthew Whitney Angela Widdiheld Jeffrey Widmann Jennifer Widmann Sylvia Wilkinson Chad Williams Marsha Williams 1 msT r. 134) THE BEST OF FRIENDS Junior Dorinda Miller learns Biology from Mr. Levy, (Photo Tami Clark) WHAT DO YOU THINK? What do we, as teen-agers, think about dating, current issues, and our parents? That is what the " Bear Tracks " staff want- ed to find out. Here are some of the ques- tions we asked and the responses received. Q: How do you feel about girls asking guys out? A: The answers were unanimous: it ' s fine. The girls all mentioned that if they ask, they will pay the bill, while the guys really liked the idea. One male said, " It ' s nice to not have to worry about the " Big R " (rejec- tion) " , while another male summed up his attitude in one word, " Perfect " . Q: How do you feel about going out with someone older or younger than yourself? A: Most people agreed that personality is more important than age. In general, guys had no preference, but females preferred their dates to be older. Q; When is your curfew? Your dates? A: Generally, the time were between 10-11 pm on weekdays and between 12 pm-1 am on weekends. Males usually had no cur- fews, while females did. Hmmm . . . Q: When was your first kiss? A; The youngest answer was in the fourth grade, while the oldest was in the Sopho- more year. Usually people had their first rea kiss in either their Freshman or Sopho- more year. Q: Have you ever had a serious relation- ship? A: Most people said they have had a seri- ous relationship, lasting anywhere from four months to a year or more. Q: What was your worst experience on a date? A: Most people chose not to answer this question, but there were some interesting responses, such as, " She forgot to come. " , " My mom found me at this one guys house " , and " He was just so loving! " Q: Do you feel more comfortable around a group of people with your date, or do you have to be alone? A: Everyone seemed to feel that both as- pects were needed, 50 50.

I don ' t know, she must be new here. Sound familiar? It should, this is a typi- cal firstdayof-school remark. It happens all the time, especially at a large school in a high growth rate area. People most surprised by our wonderful school are those that come from a smaller school. Brian Ferry, originally from Gar- rett, felt Northrop was " freaky, surprising because of all the people " . Marge O ' Con- nell stated, " I moved here from a really small school and I was so afraid because Northrop was so huge. " Freshmen are usually the most worried because high school differs greatly from middle school. The main scare of freshmen is best stated by Kelly Ferro, " I was afraid of getting lost. " Now what about after a new person be- comes acquainted with the school. Do they like it here? " I love it here! It ' s so much more alive than DeKalb, " said Delia Kirk- man. — Dave Witte A few freshmen were asked what their impressions of Northrop were: Brandon Wilson: " It was fun. I felt ner- vous because I didn ' t know what was going to happen and I thought that I was going to get lost. " Mark Widmann: " It ' s big. " Shannon Winter: " Kinda scary, every- body was bigger. It was kind of boring and dull for the first couple of days. " Jamie Arnold: " It was okay. It was big but I liked Shawnee better.

It ' s called " Freshmen " . Freshmen are (in the opinion of upperclass- men) ugly and obnoxious lower life forms. Actually, from a freshman ' s view point, Northrop is a huge and terrifying place, where one wrong move could send you into inten- sive care. Most freshmen came to Nor- throp last fall with fears. The most common fears were getting lost, making new friends, or being ridi- culed by upperclassmen. Also, many freshmen were afraid of try- ing out for teams or joining clubs. " I was scared I wouldn ' t make the volleyball team, " said Nina Allgier. Some freshmen were afraid of being beat up. As Chad Roop said, " My theory was if you get lost, you get beat up. " Upperclassmen didn ' t help to relieve freshmen ' s fears, either. Juan Billingsly said, " Older kids told me to go to the wrong places when I asked for directions. " Although they may have seemed like parasites last Septem- ber, the freshman aren ' t too bad now, are they? Well, maybe. — Susie Anderson THE BEST OF FRIENDS Alexander Griffin rSarviar Griffin Peggy Griffiths Kirsten Grotemat Bill Guingricfi Vandana Gurudutt Amanda Hale Bonnie Hall Jennifer Hall Contrail Hamilton Jeffrey Hammel Aaron Hampshire James Hannah Marcus Hardiek Pamela Harding Brian Hardy Fredrica Hardy Marcus Harper Jermaine Harris Tracy Haugk Christie Hawkins William Heck Deena Heller Angela Henry Thomas Herbold Erik Herrberg Andrew Hiatt Christoph Hickbottom Tammie Hickbottom Angela Hicks Angela Hicks Tanasa Hissong Kenneth Hobrock Natasha Hodge Michele Hoemig William Hogge Kameth Hogue David Holom Willie Honer James Hontz Steven Hook Christoph Hoover Jason House Staci Hovermale Lesley Howard Tanya Howe Demetrus Hughes Melissa Hughes Randy Hughes Robert Hunsche Desiree Hunter Phony Huynh Son Huynh Chad Inman Abdul Jackson Jennifer Jackson Matthew Jackson Michelle Jackson Steven Jackson Misa Janek Katherine Johns Adrian Johnson Carl Johnson Jeffrey Johnson Latasha Johnson Leigh Johnson Monica Johnson Matasha Johnson Stacy Johnson Valerie Johnson Ingram Jones Jeffery Jones THE BEST OF FRIENDS V " Jermaine Jones Quincy Jones Angela Jur Chad Keefer Allen Keller Charmaine Keller Tina Kelley Christy Kellum Coshawndra Kelsaw Mark Kerr Toya Key Jason Kimmerly Chad King Chonda King Aaron Kinney Kristen Kirkham Royal Kirkpatrick Chris Kiser William Kivi Amy Klein Mark Kleineidam Dennis Koch Jennifer Koegel Thomas Koenig Kimberly Kofoid Joseph Kowalenko Denise Krauskopf Chris Kruse Todd Kurtz Karia Kutzner Marsha Kyrou Travis Lafountain Jeremy Lambert KarIa Lankenau Angela Lanning Timothy Lawrence Andrew Lee Dorothy Lee Thomas Lemaster Michael Lepant Ayanna Lewis Ryan Lichtsinn Matthew Liggett Dawn Lindhorst Staci Linnemeier Paula Lock Jennifer Loew Jason Lovejoy Catherine Loveless Michael Lubbehusen Bruce Lucas Penny Ludwig Roger Machamer Matthew Madden Michael Makovic Kathy Malmloff Kristi Marks Corey Marlon Jacob Marquart Caria Martin Derek Masterson Jennifer Mattix Landiran Maydwell Rhonda McBride Christopher McCann Billy McClure Sonya McCrary Catherine McCullough Alica McGhee Gregg McGinnis Bobbie McKale Kelly McNeal THE BEST OF FRIENDS Larry Loveiace and Thomas Preston talk with Tom McKean. sponsor of Hugs, not drugs, over lunch.

The contest, hosted by Mr. Ernie Bojrab, was a success, as spectators jammed the auditorium in order to witness the contest. The evening started with a little music provided by DJ Mr. Terry Burton. The pom pen squad then helped introduce the con- t estants with a dance routine. Next came the competitions. The Miss division came first. After open- ing comparisons were made the field was narrowed to three: Lola Young, Michelle Davis, and Laura Thoma. Modified com- parisons between these three proved that Young was to be crowned 1988 Miss Nor- throp. Following Young were Davis, in sec- ond, and Thoma, in third. The Men ' s division was divided into three catagories: Short, Medium, and Tall. Winners from each division then went on to take place in the overall Mr. Northrop contest. The winners. Matt Hamlin from the short division, Jermaine Brooks from the medium, and Tim Clark from the tall, then took the stage for one final battle of the bulge. In the end, Clark was named 1988 Mr. Northrop. Judges in the contest were Angie Terry, Robin Thompson, and Butch Fairchild, all of whom are body builders themselves, Terry, the reigning Miss Ball State, per- formed after the contest. The 1988 contest was, according to Mr. Bojrab, " The best competition we ' ve had so far.

Stephanie Bourne, a special educa- tion teacher at Northrop, who is quite sane, can do just that. And that is just one reason she was chosen Fort Wayne Community Schools ' nominee for Teacher of the Year. " I really love my job, " she said. " This is exactly where I want to be. " Bourne is an excellent teacher who covers her topics well, but her efforts go far beyond the call of duty. While she feels classroom learning is important. Bourne believes special education stu- dents should get other learning opportunities. " We do a lot of extras for the kids besides academics, " she said. " This has given our department a real good reputation. " The nomination for Bourne has brought mixed emotions. " I guess I was surprised, " she said, " but I was also very honored. It ' s kind of fun because I ' m getting cards and let- ters from people I don ' t even know.

But luckily there are some people vi ' ho find what is feared by many to be exhilirating and fun. For these people Mr. Daniel Tannas offers an Aeronau- tics class here at Northrop. Besides learning about flying it teach- es a great deal of responsibility. " Ma- ture judgement and good sense are re- quired, " states Tannas. " You can ' t go out there and just fly. You have to real- ize the dangers involved by taking on this or any responsibility! You need to know what you are doing because you could really endanger your life or the life of another human being. " The aeronautics class here at Nor- throp can help you if you decide to pur- sue a desire to learn about airplanes and responsibility. Tannas gives the flight part of the test to someone wanting to get an Aero- nautics license. He gives tests for pri- vate and commercial lecenses, and flight instructions. Aeronautics is a chance for many to be influenced not only in flying but in capacity. — Victoria Alvarez Mrs, Moden enjoys a break from her English classes. photo Tami Clark Mrs. Heitger gets in the spirit of Halloween in the cafeteria. photo Tami Clark 158) THE BEST OF FRIENDS Physical Fitness Helps the Mind " Physical activity makes the mind clearer — an emotional accomplish- ment. " Mrs. Betty Jo Harper a teacher and also a friend to many here at Nor- throp gives this basic outlook of life in general. You might have seen her roller skat- ing through the school in the after- noons. Besides this she likes to bicycle at least twenty-five miles a day, weather permitting. Harper has participated in several races, some of which include two triathalons and a Run Jane Run. She finds that you should do some- thing for yourself, and at a level that you can handle. It can help enjoy life, but most importantly it helps you feel good about yourself. A certain amount of fitness should be maintained whether it be bicycling, walking, or any other physical hobby. It helps you keep that " young " feeling in- side, with a glow of pride on the outside — besides helping you keep looking fit. So if you see someone skating through the halls, be able to tell her that you took her advice, and that you started to improve yourself; both physically and emotionally! — Victoria Alvarez - $ ' Front row:(ieft to right) — Rosemary Smith, Becky Randle.

Endless assign- ments, frustrating research papers, and guaranteed tests on Fridays are all a part of the Northrop academic curriculum. But the excellence of the education at Northrop cannot be denied. Each and every Bruin can name a favor- ite teacher who gave them special help and under- standing when they were struggling with a new concept or a fa- vorite class which laught them something new or made them think in a differ- ent way. Our faculty at Nor- throp consists of dedicated teachers, who take pride in their students ' work and share in their disappoint- ments and successes. Northrop ' s academic pro- gram provides us with needed skills such as notetaking, lis- tening, and learning how to study. At Northrop we are of- fered strong college prepatory classes which prepare us for the demanding challenges we will face in college. But de- spite the many challenging courses and the many enthu- siastic teachers, many of us found the time t hroughout the school year to write notes, paint nails, do homework for other classes, and of course catch up on some hours of sleep missed the night before. Yes, we ' ve all complained of unfair grading scales and tests bordering, in our opin- ion, on child abuse, but we all must admit — the education offered at Northrop High School is nothing but the best.

It also offers a learning opportuni- ty for college bound students. The Regional Vocational School is located at 1200 South Barr Street. R.V.S. offers stu- dents the opportunity to pre- pare themselves for the future in the career of their choice or just to get a better education. Juniors and seniors attend R.V.S. on a half-day basis. The first year, for juniors, attend classroom, lab and worksites. Seniors can have on-the-job ex- perience with pay while earning a total of six credits. if students go to R.V.S. in the morning they only have to take 2 required classes and if they go to the evening class they are required to take three classes During the second year R.V.S. students may partici- pate in the co-op program. These students are placed in jobs. They work for wages, re- ceive three credits each semes- ter and grades. After gradua- tion they may continue working for the same employ- er. There are eleven depart ments, each provide 25 differ- ent programs. Some of them are Horticulture, Automotive Technology, Food Service s, and even Cosmetology. There ' s a little bit of something for ev- eryone. Students who want to go to college will learn skills in R.V.S. that will help them in college. Vocational classes are avail- able at NHS in areas such as woods. These courses also help students develop useful skills. — Jody Phillips Cj I Oophomore, Shannon Branscomb shows off his talents in woods class. photo Watters Studio Oteve Ellis, primes a truck before painting. photo Watters Studio BEST OF THE CLASS ' iS Ms. Butler teaches her economics class the importance of the stock ex- change. photo Watters Studio la Mr. Certain.

Well, Balboa isn ' t all there is to history, take Ms. Butler ' s government and economic classes for instance. This year, Butler introduced a new project to one of her classes. It involved students in- vesting in the stock market. Unfortunately, they made their investment right before the market crashed. Although the decline of the market is bad news for the class, Butler feels, " there couldn ' t have been a better semester in the last fifty years to do a project like this. " Butler believes in " getting students active in their sur roundings " . Discussions deal ing with controversial issues, constitution changes and civil rights serve as the basis for new steps taken in her govern- ment classes. Butler has found that interesting classes help to improve class participation. Junior Craig Ball says, " His- tory opened me up to a whole new world.

Easy! Each gives a student the opportunity to learn some- thing while working or enjoy- ing themselves. Lunch provides students with a chance to spend time with friends without having a teacher call your attention back to the lesson at hand. It gives students a chance to walk around, to stretch, to consult other students about homework problems, and to eat. But even with all lunch ' s fun there are times many students would rather forget. Lunch is an ideal time for " Those em- barassing moments " to hap- pen — the room is crowded and most of the people know who you are. Charmaine Kel- ler, freshman, remembers her worst cafeteria experience. " I was in a hurry to toss my lunch bag into the garbage and it hit a girl instead, " she said. Freshman Cory Scott com- mented, " I dropped a shake off my tray and it landed upside down on my foot. " It ' s not just freshmen who have bad experiences in the lunch room. " I was going to take my tray up and a bowl of mashed potatoes fell off the counter and got all over my clothes, " said Senior Coleen Bush. The cafeteria is not the only place to encounter food. Home economics classes provide students the opportunity to learn. Students plan and pre- pare meals. Not only do the students learn a great deal — their assignments taste great! Another way to learn while having fun is to be a service ' worker. Students could work for individual teachers, for the guidance office, the media cen- ter or student services. Stu- dents perform a variety of tasks from answering the phone, to filing books, to deliv- r ering messages to typing.

The art department, headed by Albert Jacquay, employs three dedicated teachers; Mr. Jacquay, Mr. Gene Porter and Ms. Denise Watkins, all who teach the variety of art classes. The art department reaches further than H hall, just ask Mr. Porter. " Yeah, I ' m stuck here in E hall with English classes. " states the photography, com- mercial art, English teacher. Photography classes occur three times a day with the pre- requisite of a 35mm camera. Hourly, Porter gives away his skills and talents in this area to eager students, impressed with the magic of picture taking. While Mr. Porter has his hands full in E hall, Ms. Wat- kins and Mr. Jacquay handle the basic art training. Art class- es at Northrop range from be- ginning to advanced and the projects differ accordingly from air brushing to sculpture, paint to pencil sketches; the spark is never lost. Through art history, classroom assign- ments and homework sketches each student is allowed to de- velop his own creative poten- tial. Jacquay believes that the goal of the department is to provide a positive " art experi- ence " for each student. He claims that he ' s " been im- pressed with the quality of art students at Northrop, " and feels that the students are " a creative and talented group " .

They present challenges that you will need to know how to over- come. Depending on what course you take, you can learn from all about stars, or how your body works, to the small- est creature ' s daily habits. In math, although many stu- dents complain that they will never use what they learn in the more advanced courses, that is untrue.

Many students don ' t seem to understand how much they can learn from the various business classes at Northrop. Accounting, Typing, Office Procedures, and many other business classes give you the learning and experience that you need for college.

" It ' s challenging because we have to compete with the guys all the time, " said Junior Cheryl Stone. One reason the students have fun is there are many more activities to participate in in a high school gym class than there are in a middle school gym class. There is a wide range of ac- tivities to students have par ticipated in such as: archery badminton, basketball, gym nasties, raquetball and volley ball. " I enjoyed archery the most, " Stone said, " it is a change of pace from the usual sports. " " Mr. Riley is the most spe- cial gym teacher at Northrop, " Sophomore Delia Kirkman said. Whether it ' s because of the new high school surroundings or atmosphere students like the high school gym class. Another reason for the stu- dent ' s enjoyment is the excess of and the quality of the equip- ment the students use. High school gym classes also have much more disci- pline than a middle school gym class. The teachers try to build character and build young adults. Participation is also differ- ent. A high school gym stu- dent is expected to give 100 percent effort during any activ- ity. " We have to participate, but it is still fun. We don ' t have to wear those ugly uniforms ei- ther, " Kirkman said. Even if the uniforms were ugly, the students would have fun.

French, German, Latin, and Spanish are four classes at Nor- throp that teach more then just a foreign language; they teach culture, understanding, and mental disipline. Many students signup for the reason that " colleges re- quire it " , but why do universi- ties ask for it? Colleges ask for a foreign language because it gives a student the background they need for their future. And students appreciate it. " I re- ceived a rising interest in the French language, " said Senior Amy Gehlert Latin, too, is offered, primari- ly for its foundation in other languages.

Along with being one of the best comes responsibility. The ma- jority of that responsibility falls on the teachers who, in turn, take it on with grace. The Northrop English teach- ers have a special determina- tion, different from all other teachers. They must teach their students communication that will last a life time, and help them to survive in this world. " To teach students to be able to make judgements, eval- uate ideas, and then write their ideas down clearly. " This is one of the primary goals of Mrs. Laura Vanderlage. She feels a responsibility to give skills in thinking and writing. Many teachers just feel that it is important to teach stu- dents how to communicate, and how to do it effectively. " Enjoy life, live everyday to its fullest. Learn how to com- municate, " says Mrs. Ruth Hart. " I think people could make this world a better place if they could communicate bet- ter.

Another similarity is winning tradi- tion. All performing arts groups are among the best in Fort Wayne and some in the state. For exam- ple, Charisma, the Nor- throp swing choir, is one of the best in the city. The group has won many awards and has been asked to perform before many groups. Northrop ' s march- ing band, the Big Or- ange Pride, is ranked among the top ten in the state. The BOP also brought honor to Northrop by being invited to perform in the Or- ange Bowl Parade in 1984 and in the Rose Bowl Parade in 1988. Due to their out- standing performance in the Rose Bowl Parade, Fort Wayne ' s mayor, Paul Helmke, declared the week of January 3 as Big Orange Pride Week. These aren ' t the only out- standing performing groups at Northrop. There are also the choirs, orchestra and jazz band. These groups also have been the source of great pride for Northrop High School. All students at Northrop get a chance to show their talents at the annual all- school talent show, Etc. This show was open to all Bruins and gave them a chance to display otherwise unnoticed talents.

This year ' s marching band had an abundance of both. It all started as early as June. Summer Band I started on the 1 6th and lasted until July 2. This was the period during which basics were taught every day from 6 to 9 p.m. Then, in August, Summer Band II started and the intensity began with it.

On December 28, the Northrop Marching Band headed to Mari- na Del Ray, California, for a week of sightseeing and marching. First on the agenda was Knott ' s Berry Farm followed by a trip to see the famous Spruce Goose and Queen Mary. As the week wore on, the marching band found themselves in, of all places, Disneyland. The show there was a short display of what was to come later in the week as band members were eager to explore the park or meet Micky, Goofy, or Donald Duck.

With the California sights out of the way, it was time to do what the Northrop Band had come for — January I had ar- rived and the Rose Bowl Parade with it.

" " It was tough, but I ' m glad that I stuck with it. " — Sara Fisher, senior Tim Cox ' s dedication comes from just pure enjoyment of his instrument.

The concert band meets every day dur- ing first period, there are 112 members, mostly juniors and sen- iors, with a few sopho- mores scattered in. Actually there are ' ' Ashton ' s 3 three bands; the con- vill Chobot, cert band, composed of juniors and seniors; the varsity band, made up of sophomores; and the ninth grade band, made up of freshmen. The band does not play just any music. " We ' re pl aying legitimate concert band music, " stated Mr. Barry Ashton, director of the band. Some of the pieces being played were " Coat of Arms " and Armanian Dances " . Ashton feels that " Armanian Dances " sounds like a Greek dance. " I try to give them the most difficult music they can handle, " Ashton replied about the diffi- culty of the music played. The concert band doesn ' t perform dur- ing the marching band season, however it is still around only they usually practice marching music. This year the agenda seemed to be fairly full. The band played three concerts: the orchestra concert in January; the band concert in March, and the fine arts concert in May. The band also visited many middle schools, and had a few surprises thrown in. One of the surprises was a visit by Rob- ert Jager in February. Jager is a profes- sional in the music business and he stopped by to conduct " Variations on a Theme " just for the fun of it. The concert band in- volved themselves in a major fund raiser dur- trip. i e- jng the year. The Eas- senior ter chocolate sale, brought lots of The World ' s Finest Choco- late Bars into the school. Along with the one dollar chocolate bars the band also sold chocolate bunnies and chocolate covered almonds. The bars, which seemed to some a little expensive, were still big sellers. To some people first period may seem a bit early to be musically creative, but many of the band members like the ar- rangement just fine. Junior Kevin Crabtree said, " It ' s an uplifting class, a positive way to wake up in the morning. " Twelve members of the concert band made it to the state competition this year. They were; Tom Cox, Jeff Cameron, Tim Cox, Kirk VanGilder, Jeremy Roth, Mi- chelle Whitlock, Tina Graham, Maureen Pierson, Jessica Marquart, Andy Warren, Tim Cox, Stephany Nash, Matt Ellenwood, and Jeremy Roth.

To be in any Jazz Band, 1, II, or III, a student had to audition quite a few times just to be considered. Then the student still had to audition even more to be placed in a Jazz Band. Ail this au- ditioning is started af- ter the marching band season. Last year was unusual for Jazz Band because marching band season ran so late due to the Rose Bowl. To be in Jazz Band I, it was important to have been in Marching Band, but not to be any certain grade level.

The bands practiced everyday after school from 3:00-4:30 p.m. All this practice paid off when they went to contests and festivals like ISSMA, Elmhurst Jazz Festival, Ball State Jazz Festival, and the Perry Meridian Jazz Festival. They also did a concert for the Indiana School Board Meeting as well as area middle schools and even one for Northrop students. Each level of Jazz Band gets harder. All groups do a lot of work on their own time. From this hard work the players scor ed high in almost all the contests and festi- vals. Mr. Richard Seeger, director of Jazz Band II, said he enjoyed directing very much because the kids did a lot of the work on their own which makes directing more interesting. If you ever think of audi- tioning remember: only 19 students make it Jazz Band I, 19 to Jazz Band 11 and no more than 35 to Jazz Band 111. — Sharon Collins Steve Jackson.

This year ' s group consists of 32 singers, a nine piece band, and 13 crew members. " 1 have enjoyed the four years 1 have been able to partici- pate in Charisma. To be in Charisma takes a lot of time, patience, dedica- tion, and hard work, " was Senior Dave Parker ' s first reply. Mr. Bill Heins directed and did some of the choreography for Charisma. Cindy Shipley and Mike Weaver are the group ' s primary choreog- raphers. All of these people are important. They all play a necessary role so that preparations and performances will go smoothly. A member of Charisma crew, freshman Tony Bastian said, " Everyone puts their best into what they do. Being on crew doesn ' t make you any less important. A lot of the singers in Cha- risma started out in Charisma crew. " Unknown to many people, behind all the glamour of performance it ' s not as easy as it looks.

" Charisma is more than a group of people singing and dancing. It is many individ- uals working and learning as one. A group where everyone strives for the same goal: to be number one! " Christmas time was a really busy time for everyone involved in Charisma. The group had performances during the week and on weekends. They performed at such places as the Scottish Rite Auditorium, the Grand Wayne Center, and Goeglein ' s Reception Hall. Charisma competed in contests, also. For some contests are the highlights of the year, for others it can be very stressful. " 1 enjoy the contests and the trips. To me, they are the reward for all of our hard work, " said Junior Duane Burris. In the fall they competed at the Bluffton Street Fair and in the Spring at Wat- seka, Illinois, Bishop Luers, and Centergrove, Indiana.

Clubs are a vital part of Northrop ' s extra-curricu- lar activities, providing fun and friendships but also a learning experience. Al- though becoming a vital member of a club takes valuable time and dedica- tion, it is well worth the ef- fort as you become involved with a group of fellow Bruins who share your same interests.

The team won a trophy at each meet this year with the exception of one. Some standout meets were placing first at Dekalb and second at Snider, very tough meets. Another element that helped strengthen the team was its strong leadership.

These students work side by side with sponsor Mr. William Brown, and ad- viser Mrs. Susan Beerman, in a careful planning of yearly events. This year the student council members planned many social events that made this year one of the best years ever at Nor- throp. These members were in charge of planning spirit weeks, homecoming, dances, and they were also in charge of getting classmates involved with reaching out to our community. For the last ten years Northrop students have participated in the WOWO Penny Pitch. The annual kick off began with new and different incentives when faculty and administration promised to shave their hair, if a certain money goal was reached. " FCA is a club that guides people spiri- tually through rightousness. It just gives you insight between wrong and right, " ex- plained Deborah VanDam when she was asked to explain what FCA was all about.

" Coming Down Hard in ' 88 " was the theme for this year ' s Afro-American Club. The club is sponsored by Miss Reba Mose- ley and Mr. Fred Blanks, who work to help Morthrop students become aware of their standing in our community. The club was composed of nearly 60 people who met every Wednesday to dis- cuss how to handle peer pressure and also to discuss new ideas for fund raisers. The highlight of the Afro-American club ' s year was, by far, the talent show. This show was composed of singing, danc- ing, modeling and acting. It was performed in January and attracted a large number of Northrop students. The Afro-American club couldn ' t have been what it was if it weren ' t for the offi- cers who were elected. These officers planned many other events and listened carefully to new ideas from their peers. ' I think the Afro-American club is more than just a talent show, it is an organization functioning with the school body and in order to function it must make progress by making the people more active, " com- mented Rodney Walker, senior. Project L.E.A.D. (Leadership Experience And Development), was designed to give students an excellent chance to use their own talents and develop new leadership skills. " There is no limit to what a person can do for our community, " stated Sophomore Rosaline Young. Although the attendance of Project Lead was down, compared to previous years, the accomplishments continued to grow.

The remaining clubs are extracurricular. Such is the case with the Ski Club and Ecology Club, the only clubs at Northrop offering students the chance to get back to nature. The Ski Club, sponsored by Mr. Frank Ebetino, had its best year ever this year. With a total membership of 104, Ebetino was very pleased with the club and said, " It ' s only going to get better. " On the ski trips, like to Cannonsburg or Bittersweet, students pay for the bus, lift ticket, ski rental, and lessons. The executive officers deciding the trips were Jessica Harrison, Susan Hensler, Beth Richard, Dean Baugh- man, and Eric Saple. The Ecology Club, sponsored by Mr. John McCory, tries to balance its activities between environmental action, local field trips, speakers, and longer field trip experi- ences. The officers for 1987-88 were Presi- dent, Abbie Decker; Vice-President, John Steinkamp; Secretary, Tami Clark; and Treasurer, Jennie Decker. The club took a major trip to Chicago in late December and less important trips to caves in Bedford and Bloomington, located in southern Indi- ana. Many students enjoy the chance to " get away " on weekends.

The Paragon is a literary magazine that took on its fourth year of success this year. There were four issues of the magazine published, which was compiled of articles such as poems, artwork, and really any- thing that was submitted to the journalism department. The Paragon ' s purpose is to enhance and expose its readers as well as its staff to the workings of a literary magazine. " Writing lets people express themselves and the Paragon allows them to share their feelings with other Northrop students, " stated Michelle Kivi, co-editor of the maga- zine. The International Honorary Society for High School Journalists, or better known as Quill and Scroll was started this year. Officers were elected last September and meetings were scheduled monthly. Their purpose was to raise the standards of journalism at (Northrop, thus improving all of its publications, such as " What Bruin? " , the school newspaper. Paragon, and Bear Tracks. They promoted precise reporting of facts with non opinionated news pre- sent. One activity that took place last May to recognize all of the oustanding students of the journalism department was the first annual Journalism Banquet sponsored by Quill and Scroll. Along with the writing aspect of media, Northrop ' s audio visual department gives students a chance to work with the other; television and sounding. This club, which is run by Mr. Richard Davis, reached new heights. Although it was not very publicized throughout the year, the work that was accomplished was impressive. The advanced students worked on a sound show as a second semester project. This sound show was composed of two differrent parts; first the slides which make up the visual aspect, and secondly the sound that was dubbed in by the inventor. At the end of the year each student pre- sented his own show to other club mem- bers and also received grades for his work. Because all of these clubs take talent, along with patience and eagerness to learn, these students will carry these skill with them for the rest of their lives — Shannon Hagerty and Kim Critchlow The editors of Paragon, altliough a Dunn, Karln Rittenberg. and Michelle QuiLL AND SCROLL: (row I) Mike Kelble.

Miss Jessica Glendenning started the German Club last year and so far it has been pretty successful. This year the club had about 15 active members, they met about twice a month. In the spring the group had a chance to show off their speaking abilities. They competed in the state convention in India- napolis and at the I.G.P.G. foreign language day. They competed in recitations, drama, and grammar. The group also did fun things just for socialization. They had a Christmas party after which they went caroling and sang a German carol. The club also went skiing at Swiss Valley on February 7 and had a Ger- man Banquet at the end of the year. The Junior Classical League was led by Mr. Daniel Tannas, Latin teacher. There were about 22 members and Mr. Tannas expected the group to increase in size. Lat- in is said to be a " dead " language, it is no longer used for communication but it is very useful. Sixty to seventy percent of the English language is based on Latin and it also offers a good background for studies of other languages. Like the German Club, the Junior Classi- cal League also went to contest. In Febru- ary they competed in a nationwide contest in which they were questioned on culture, history, and grammar. Contests gave stu- dents a chance to compete but it also gives students a chance to meet others with sim- ilar interests. — Coleen Bush ' 220) NOTHING BUT THE BEST Amy Brown and Nina Algier are " chilin " ' in the cold wfiile riding tine ski lift back to the slope. photo Miss Glendening Cjerman Club involved more than just book work Melanie Steffen enjoyed the club ' s ski trip. pho- to Jessica Glendening Melanie Steffen dares to sample a " ginger snap " cookie while Nina Algier tries to explain the exotic taste. photo Tami Clark German CLGB: (kneeling) Amy Brown, (row 2) An gie Elett.

The requirements of being a cheerleader are as follows; every cheerleader must at- tend all of the varsity and reserve football games, all of the boys and girls basketball games, and at least three games of all the other sports. They make spirited posters to hang up throughout the school and pro- vide a breakfast for each varsity member of all sports during their season. They also lead pep sessions and decorate varsity players ' houses during homecoming week. By the time the school year comes to an end, the Northrop cheerleaders are plan- ning for a successful Bruin cheerleading camp in July. This camp is designed for girls of various ages who are interested in becoming a cheerleader. Because these girls spend so much time involving themselves in spirited leader- ship, few had time for other things such as jobs or outside sports, but all would agree the fun of it all is all worth it. — Shannon Hagerty and Sharon Collins Danielle Gael shows her fellow cheerleaders who is in charge while practicing for a pep session, photo- Tami Clark The varsity cheerleaders ' practice pays off as they lead chants during football season. photo Tami Clark NOTHIMG BGT THE BEST Q V D ancers travel to Cal. able to have much fun. The favorite part of the year was " all of the fun i had and I al the friends I met, " said Sarah Berger. — Shanna Clements it ' s been a good year for Northrop ' s Lady Bruinettes. During 1987-88 the Pompon squad received many individual and group awards in a group size of approximately 300 dancers. Through the 1987-88 march- ing season, the corp was involved with many competitions with the marching band. The Bruinettes, along with the marching band traveled to Pasadena, Cali- fornia to march with pride in the Rose Bow Parade during Christmas vacation. Last summer the Pompon squad also attended the Superstar Drill Team Camp at Indiana University. The Pompon squad puts a lot of effort and time towards their preformances dur- ing marching band and basketball seasons. They perform at all home basketball games, and attempt to have two different routines for each game. This year they were invited to perform with the Bishop Dwenger dancers. For the girls the hardest part of their responsibilities seemed to be the long prac- tices. " Practicing for such long hours in tthe heat and in the cold, " said Holly Ma- son, was the hardest thing for me. The Bruinettes are sponsored by Nancy Schmieman. She advises and disciplines them and helps the girls build confidence. There are 27 members on the Bruinette squad.

The hock- ey team continued its winning tradition while the newly formed volleyball team established itself and a solid reputation. Without school funding it ' s difficult to keep an athletic club which competes with other schools organized but the determination of the ath- letes and thrill of the sport makes it work for these students. Morthrop ' s hockey team stunned the area with their high-scoring hardhitting style of plays. The team went 15-6 with an upset victory over Snider during the city tournament — an upset that many consid- ered the highlight of the year. The team centered around the polished play of Sen- iors Jeff Barton. Dave Hasting, Dave Orn and captain Bob Krosky. With unpredict- able and spontaneous reactions from fans the team couldn ' t help playing harder. The team played at McMillan Ice Arena every Tuesday night. What made them contrib- ute so much time and effort to a non-recog- nized sport? " The love for game, " stated Dave Orn, " and the physical aspect. " The new volleyball club was equally suc- cessful in their first year. Dan Zollars and a group of students approached Mrs. Coats with the idea of an organization for boys volleyball. " Dan ' s really helped me in the past " , commented Coats. " He and the rest of the guys really wanted to do it, so 1 decided to sponsor it. " The self-sufficient club meets every Tuesday through Friday at 7:00 a.m. and consists of approximately twenty-five members. The club competed at the North Side and IPFW tournaments and the White River Games in the summer. Led by Junior Dan Zollars and Seniors Brian Bolinger and Marc Malone the volleyball club paved its way as a high-standard setting team. — Sean McGann The Boys ' Volleyball team spent a lot of time practic- ing skills for quicker reactions.

Through class- room instruction and on-the-job learning ex- periences students of these classes are off to good starts in their business careers. DECA (Distributive Education Clubs of America) prepares students for careers in marketing, management, and enterpren- eurship. DECA is a marketing education class that consists of classroom instruc- tion, on-the-job training and the club part of the program. Senior students of DECA are involved in on-the-job training so that they can learn about marketing through their work experi- ence they are required to work a minimum of fifteen hours a week. Miss Jennifer Titzer, the DECA teacher coordinator helps the students to find jobs. COE (Cooperative Office Education) pre- pares students, for office related careers. It consists of classroom instruction and on- the-job training. Each experience contrib- utes to both the students ' education and employability. Students of COE possess such skills which include typing, filing, transcribing, word processing, and other business relat- ed skills. Some businesses which have par- ticipated in COE are Lincoln National Cor- poration, Summit Bank, Central Soya, and Magnavox. The DECA members who went to state were: Dan Merchant, Jason Barnhart, James Bradford, Tom Esterline, Chris Turner, Misa Kelsaw, Penny Neel, Chris Fyock, Duane Birch, Elise Goodman, and Laura Clem. — Lisa Weslowski Julie Sawvel. senior, sells donuts in the cafeteria be fore school for COE.

The girls soccer team had a lot of talent this year, but they did not do as well as they had hoped. " 1 think we have a lot of talent on the team and we could do better than what we have, " said Kelly Ferro. The team had impressive wins against North Side, Bishop Luers, and Snider but unfortunately lost to Homestead and Bish- op Dwenger. Brian Roth commented, " I feel that we are finally playing as a threatening team instead of individuals. " The love for their sport has led many students into these two clubs and these clubs have taught more than just skills of the game. Molly Spake explains, " playing on the team has taught me to have a posi- tive attitude about everything. It has also taught me that winning isn ' t everything, although it is fun.

Some girls managed the score keeping book, while others passed out oranges at the end of each game. As Marie Papal explains how their responsi- bilities were more than just that. " Seeing how I yell loud, I tried to use my support to boost their spirits, not to mention I was willing to run er- rands for the team to try and make everything run as smoothly as possible. " The Bat Girls spent most of their time encour- aging the baseball players. " When I was a freshman I became a Bat Girl. I love the sport and wanted to promote the Bruin Baseball spirit. I had fun and stuck with it, " commented Dee Dee Holtzberg. The Bat Girls had various jobs, as did the Mat Maids. Score keeping, and offensive charts were re- corded by Bat Girls and they sold " goodies " at the concession stand.

The 1988 Tournament of Roses Parade had begun; rewarding all of its par- ticipants with an experience of a lifetime. Nothing can compare with the feeling of pride that swells within as the eyes of mil- lions of people look upon you. An honor as great as this, however, is not easily achieved, and the work involved to produce a good show has its share of ups and downs. No one knows this better than the members of the Flag and Rifle corps. These young ladies spent countless hours under the vigorous direction of me- ticulous color guard instructors, perfecting I eresa Jehl tries to demonstrate proper batting posi- tion witti a straw left over from luncfi. photo Tami Clark routines to their satisfaction. Numerous moves are pieced together to capture the feeling of the music and create a colorful flowing effect. After months of endless sacrifices, put- ting both time and dedication above and beyond the call of duty, a special bond is formed between these girls. They share the joy and happiness of victory as well as the tears and pain of defeat. It is a growing experience in which they learn to move with poise and pride, with their heads held high, no matter what happens. Winning is not everything to these girls; it is the per- sonal satisfaction and sense of accomplish- ment they feel when they know they ' ve done their best. As a part of one of these groups, one learns to work together with others in order to achieve a common goal. These young ladies gain respect for them- selves and their organization, whatever the outcome, learning to win with grace and lose with dignity. — Holly Huepenbecker Flag CORPS: (row l) Shelley Stoller Nikki Salas, (row 2) Teresa Lucas Kathy Myers.

Tfie same thing goes for a community and the business in it. A community must com- pete with other communi- ties in order to offer its citizens something to make them live here rather than somewhere else. They must also compete for new business. We ail saw this become re- ality in the fight for the General Motors plant that was built a few years ago. The American system of business, the free enterprise system, could not exist if it weren ' t for competition. Businesses must compete against each other for cus- tomers in order to keep their business alive. This means they must have the best products at the lowest prices and run their business in the most efficient manner possible. This all must be done to have a successful business. All of this competition does not stop at the busi- ness world though. Every person in our society would like to be successful. In or- der to achieve this goal they must compete against every other person who also wants to achieve success.

A total of $8,889.88 was collected this year, beating last year ' s total by $1. The money the school raised may seem large, but many vari- ous money-making methods were used. The biggest money maker was the Penny Pitch drawing. Students and faculty sold tick- ets to be entered in the drawing for $1. Several prizes were giv- en including a four-day trip to the Bahamas and a large color TV. Ticket sellers who sold over $200 worth also received televisions. Another big money maker was the pie-in-the-face contest. Students gave money in the names of four teachers, and the one who collected the most re- ceived a face full of pastry. Physics teacher Mike Cheviron won this year ' s dubious honor. One goal that wasn ' t met, but surely helped to draw cash, was the " hair loss " fundraiser, with a projected goal of $12,000. Had the school reached that amount, 23 facul- ty members would have had to cut their hair. However, be- cause of the valient effort the school put forth. Principal H. Doug Williams and Dean of Boys John Weicker decided to get their heads shaved. On Friday, Dec. 18, Assis- tant Principal Bill Brown said it was a " great day to be a Bruin " as he announced the grand to- tal over WOWO ' s airwaves.

He began treat- ments at Riley Children ' s Hospital, but as his condition worsened, he was trans- ferred to a medical center in Iowa. Although I only had Troy in one of my classes last year, 1 quickly became at- tached to his friendly smile, his quick mind, and his lively sense of humor. I feel bad that I never had the opportunity to get to know Troy as well as I would have liked to. H owever, I feel lucky to have known him at all — even for that short time — because he truly was a person to look up to and admire, and I know we will all miss him. — Nancy Zumwalt WHO ' S THE BEST : Gentry, Erik 105 Gerdom, Mary 105 Gerig, Don 180 Gerig.

Eugene 156 The English squad of the Academic Su- per Bowl Team was first in Northeast Indi- ana but was not invited to compete at the state competition. The English squad consisted of Lisa Stewart, Team Captain; Liz Wyatt and Lara Wegner. There were ten team mem- bers that were prepared to compete. There are five other squads on the team. They are Science, Social Studies, Math, Fine Arts, and All-Round. The trick to this is to be prepared. The I.S.E. chooses a topic, this year ' s was Indiana. The idea Is to learn all you can about the topic that pertains to your squad. Then when you go to competition you are asked questions about the topic that deals with your squad. It ' s much like a game show. The way to get to state Is to have the most points out of all other teams. The problem was that the team only had one after school practice meet with area schools, therefore they had very few points going Into the regional meet. They placed first In the regional meet but were not asked to compete at the next level due to their low points. " I was really happy that we won at regionals and was looking forward to par- ticipating at the state competition. Unfor- tunately, we were not chosen to compete at state because It is based on points and not on whether you won first place at regionals. I was upset and disappointed because we had worked hard. It was un- fair especially to Lisa Stewart and me who are seniors but hopefully next year the rules will be changed. The Academic Super Bowl competitions are definitely worth the time and effort, " commented Lara Wegner. — Tanasa Hissong 264) WHO ' S THE BEST Johnson. Greg 37. 38 Johnson. Gregory 139 Johnson.

We excelled in virtually everything we attempted, with never a doubt that we wouldn ' t be any- thing short of outstanding. We, the edi- tors, hope we have accurately conveyed, through this yearbook, the emotions and memorable events of this school year. We wish to thank our class, the senior class of 1988, for creating a year to remember, a year to be proud of, a year that will be forever ccontained in this, our yearbook.

WHO ' S THE BEST (269 emones Looking back with pride Another year has come and gone. Grades have been calculated, the cheering has stopped, relationships have ended. The end of the school year is always a time of mixed emotions — wanting it to end, yet wondering what the future will hold outside the secure halls of Northrop High School. The end of a school year is always a time for remembering past moments — those of pride, those of disappointment. We started with the endless registration line in August, reacquainted ourselves with old friends, displayed our tans, shared summer stories. Then came the first day of school with confusing class schedules, wonder- ing if summer would ever come again. Homecoming, and all the once hidden school spirit emerged in a frenzy of orange garbage bags, support- ing our victorious football team, as well as powder-puff. Hoosier Hysteria was alive and well at Northrop as we got behind our successful basketball teams in seas of orange and occassional displays of toilet paper throwing (much to the dismay of Dr. Williams). And or course we came through again with a record amount of money for Penny Pitch, rewarded by the shaved heads of our principal and dean of boys, John Weicker. Then the return from Christmas vacation with a new year (and only five more months!) awaiting us along with our share of edible(?) lunches and those always exciting " organizational homeroom " meetings. Spring Break fever hit as most of us escaped from Fort Wayne for a memorable week of sun and fun only to return to Northrop for the final home stretch of the 1987- 88 school year. The excitement of the prom along with the many end-of- theyear banquets and award programs seemed to make the time pass quickly as graduation suddenly appeared and the Class of ' 88 celebrated together, with diplomas in hand, as one student body. It was quite a year, quite a successful year. One to look back upon, one to be proud of. We will never forget the friendships made, the lessons learned, and the times shared because these were our times — and they were the best. — Jennifer Welsh %) TO BE THE BEST Kimberly Ford and Angela Fleming obviously weren ' t meant for a life of crime as tfiey were cap ' tured by a News Sentinel pfiotographier while attempt- ing to skip school in Shoaff Park, photo Argil Shock.
