charleston Adds New Twist to Rocky Pep TAKING TIME OUT from the vigorous schedule of the JV squad are from bottom to top juniors Leanna Nelson, Deonna Durkee, Loura Swedberg, Marsha Maurus, and Michelle Demps. EMOTIONS OF THE senior cheerleaders quickly change fram happi¬ ness to anxiety to sadness as they give canstant encouragement to our varsity team during the Moline game. Fifteen pert ambassadors of pep led the student body in cheering the Rocks on during the past year. Five cheerleaders were chosen from each class. The varsity and junior varsity cheerleaders were selected by the senate last spring; the sophomores were chosen last fall. A variety of original and often surprising skits were presented during pep assemblies by the senior pepsters. A spirited Charleston to appeal to both the older and younger fans was performed at home basketball games. The senior five cheered at all varsity football and basketball games. The JV cheerleaders represented the Rocks at all swimming and wrestling meets as well as the junior varsity football and basketball games. After a week of mandatory practice, five sophomore girls were chosen to lead the Peb¬ bles at all athletic contests. LENDING SUPPORT to the Little Rocks throughout the year are the sophomore cheer¬ leaders , Robbie Coatney, Judy Miers. Condy Cheek, Marcia Glassner, and Judy Knox. 227

Rocks Fail to Jell; Slip to 10-12 Season After winning their first two outings, the Rl 1967-68 basketball squad skidded to a 10-12 season. Finishing under the .500 mark, the team was the first Rocky squad to have a losing season in 20 years. The Rocks, crippled by the graduation of last year ' s top 8 men, were plagued by Inexperience and Inconsistency throughout the season. After a fast start against Quincy and West, hopes for a good season soared. Rockford Auburn, how¬ ever, had other ideas as they downed the Rocks 61-43. This started the Rocks on a four game losing streak that included a 56-54 heartbreaking loss to Alleman. Midway through the season the Rocks were downed by Moline after a fantastic comeback by the fighting Rocks. The Rocks actually had the lead with just seconds to go but Moline was not to be denied the win. Despite the heartbreaks and disappointments the Rocky cagers were able to boost their spirit in a week¬ end that included games with the two leading MVC clubs. The Rocks were able to upset East Moline in over¬ time but the following night the Rocks were brought back to earth as the Dubuque Rams downed the Rocks by a mere two points. Alleman downed the Rocks in the last game of the season, also by 2 points, after the Rocks had made a dazzling comeback. Geneseo stopped the Rocks, 73-48, in the regional to end the Rocks ' season.
