VISIT Chants of "VTc’rc number one" echo through the fteldhouse as the fans mob the floor; after the Rocks proved they are on the right track by rolling over the number one ranked Quincy Blue Devils. Hallways untangle, school hops Dn the right track The lockcrrooms locked up as tight as a drum; the classrooms free of the normal cluttered shelves; and the humming of the typewriters ceased. The temperature rose and so did the anticipation of the summer. The year had come to a close, and Rock Island students had done a complete turn around with out notice. The year began on the wrong foot, when the hallways became so cluttered between classes it was next to impossible to reach a desired destination on time. When it came time for the students to evaluate the year at the Rock, however, the asscsets out-weighed the liabilities. The football season fout it's place in the rank and file after the Rocks grabbed the Western Big Six Conference title, and Coach DeSutter led the team to the state playoffs, where three bus loads of students and fans cheered the Rocks on against the Chicago suburbanited Glcnn-bard North. Then came the b-ballers, next in line when the students chalked'em up for the Rock. The Rocks battled their way to another twenty win season, this time tak- ing down the Blue Devils of Quincy and the Streaks of Galesburg. They also took hold of a piece of the Big Six conference title. The Rocks managed to grab a state-ranking before the season closed out, reaching the number sixteen spot. Anther star in the company of the Rocks was grappler Tim Wright, who again took the first blace title in his weight category' at the state competition. The Rocks managed to keep in tune with the help of the Marching Rocks and the pep band. The band marched their way to another Sweepstakes award at the Western Illinois Band Competition. The hands marched to the beat of the Rocky drum as the band's cheers and music echoed throughout, and brought the tunes, well known to Rocky fans, into the school and into the sports. On the academic side of the coin, the number of High Honor students incread-cd and the drop out rate decreased. The improvements made by both faculty and students through the year, proved the school and its people had finally begun it’s journey "on the right track", wfj
