Cheerleaders boost morale to
Southfield cheerleaders help stimulate school spirit at the winter sports
pep rally in December. One of the jobs of the cheerleaders is to teach
the student body cheers so they can show this spirit at the games.
This formation introduced a new cheer called "Thunderation," which
the students caught on to very quickly.

cheerleading captains, aid Miss Elea-

chair. Monte has been the footbal'
team's mascot since 1959.

Winning 11 of 18 scheduled matches, the
1961 golf team had a victorious season.
The team, consisting of Bill Fogler, Ray
Gadowski, Rod Kaminski, Jim Kenyon, Rick
Marshall, Dick Meuthel, Joe Poe, Larry
Spencer, and coached by Mr. Richard Wel-
kenbach, tied for third place in the Inter-
Lakes Conference last spring. Kenyon was
the captain and team medalist with a 40.1
average. Other teams in the conference are
Famiington, Walled Lake, Waterford, Berk-
ley, and Pontiac Northem.
Golf is different from other sports be-
cause in baseball, football, and basketball,
the player must make snap decisions, and
how efficient he is at this usually deter-
mines how good a player he is. However, in
golf, the player has all the time in the world
to make a decision as to which club to use,
how hard to hit the ball, what type of spin
to use, and how to play the wind, if there is
any. Golf is a game of thought and concen-
tration. The golfer must have nerves of
steel because of the trememdous amount of
pressure put upon him during his match. He
knows that his score depends on each indi-
vidual shot and he must play the game stroke
by stroke, using all the knowledge he has
gained from previous experience.
