ROSE D. WARWICK HIGH SCHOOL
As you remember this past year,
It brings to mind the special moments that occurred,
Those special friendships and those great times we spent together.
You can never forget the little things:
Rushing to get to class on time;
Catching a few words with a friend between classes;
That last minute cramming for a test.
Through it all, we grew with the fads,
From Gloria Vanderbilts and Rock-N-Roll To cruising town on a long-awaited weekend.
Remembering brings to mind those eventful Homecoming and Spirit Weeks Which through togetherness, proved our loyal school spirit.
And who could forget the joy and the tears of experiencing
The ultimate goal of graduation?
Together we learned through our classes, our friends And through our experiences,
And these special memories will guide us through our lifetimes.
No one can take away the great times of the past;
Like our friendships,
The special events And our personal accomplishments. Through it all we will look back and realize that
These are our special memories.

Event Brings Week
The class of “82” sponsored this year’s Homecoming. The King Bob Wiescholek and Queen Susan George were chosen by the student body and faculty. They were announced on October 3, to reign over the Homecoming festivities.
Throughout the fun and event-filled week, the various traditional events took place. On October 8, the cheerleaders sponsored the annual snake dance and bonfire where they held a pie eating contest for the Homecoming court. The sophomore attendants won the contest.
The day that everyone had waited for was October 10. During the day, the pep rally was held in the gym. There was a legs contest for the varsity football players. The student body decided that Todd Sherwood’s legs were the best looking! Also during the pep rally, a marshmallow eating contest was held for all the classes. The seniors won that contest with Scott Waffle downing the marshmallows the fastest. The parade followed afterwards, traveling down Main Street, ending at the school. The senior girls battled the junior girls in a powder puff football game, with the juniors coming out on top 6 to 0.
At the game, a half time show featured class floats, the king and queen, and their court. The junior class took first place in the float competition. The Indians lost a rough game to Camden-Frontier 43 to 3.
Following the game, the king and queen were formally crowned at the dance by 1969-70 Homecoming King and Queen Andy and Nancy Palik. The theme of the dance was “Sailing.”

The Student Council, once again, sponsored Spirit Day. This was the third consecutive year that it has been held. Through the week, there was decorating of windows and dress up days. Friday was competition day between the classes in the gym.
Some of the events included the wheelbarrow race, ping pong, egg on a spoon race, and building a pyramid. The sophomore class took first place with the seniors coming in second, and the juniors taking third place.

‘Barefoot in the Park’
Mrs. Carlene Zollner directed another hit play, “Barefoot in the Park,” on March 12, and 13. Both nights had extremely good attendance. All actors put forth good performances both nights. Cast members, stage crew, make-up artists and set designers worked for two months perfecting every detail for the big nights.
The play evolved around a newlywed couple who lived in New York City and were just starting their life together. With the help of an upstairs neighbor and a mother, they began to run into many problems.
This year’s Drama award went to Bob Wiescholek.

Another Winner for THS
The 1980 varsity football team achieved THS’s second consecutive winning season since 1966. The Indians finished with a five win, four loss record and tied for second place in the SCAA.
The team also finished second in the Enquirer and News area Class D rankings.
The season had a slow start as the gridders were shut out their first three games. With a little more work, they came back to win five of their last six games. Three of those five were shutouts.
The Indians managed to beat ever-tough North Adams 9 to 0 this season which THS hasn't done since 1964. When the playoffs came around, Tek-onsha and North Adams met agin and the Indians beat the Rams once more 14 to 6.
Five seniors received post season honors in
football. Bob Wiescholek received All-Conference, All-Area and All-State Honorable Mention, for his positions of offensive center and defensive tackle. Todd Sherwood was selected for All-Conference and All-Area, for performance at quarterback and linebacker. Ralf Zeitler, German exchange student, received All-Conference and All-Area for his kicking talents. Scott Doolittle and Scott Waffle both received All-Conference Honorable Mention. They also were chosen for All-Area Honorable Mention, and All-Area First Team Offense, respectively, for their performances as two-way linemen.
All in all, the season was satisfactory, as the team placed well in the conference and gave THS another winning record.

Have you ever heard the term "an off day"? Well, the junior varsity football team seemed to have an off season this year, winning only one game. However, they scored in every game except one, but still could not seem to overcome their rivals.
Their season record was one win and five losses, while in league play they were one and four. Even though the team consisted of 13 sophomores and 9 freshmen, their overall size of players along with the fact that a few key players were moved up to varsity, were the determining factors for their off season.

Girls Cheer to a Winning Season
The 1980-81 cheerleading squads had a good season cheering the boys varsity basketball team on to a 16-5 seasonal record. The girls were busy this year putting on pep rallies, dances, and decorating the halls for tournaments. The girls also had a cake raffle at all of the home games. The last game, each one of the cheerleaders made a cake or cookies. The cheerleaders raffled them off at both the junior varsity and varsity halftime.

Team Breaks Records
This year’s girls' varsity basketball team scored more overall points and had better statistics even though they had a win-loss record of 8-11. The major factor was due to the improved level of competition.
Coach Tony Bowling commented, “It was an overall enjoyable and very successful season, but you always like to do better.’’
The team lacked height, but that didn’t stop them from breaking some team records such as 36 percent for field goals and 52 percent for free throws.
Shelly George broke the free throw percentage school record with 66 percent for the season. Verli Stefan had a total of 61 season steals to break her old school record, and had a high of eight in one game to tie the record in that category.
Verli Stefan was named to the All-League, first team and Lynette Selby to the second team. Verli Stefan and Lynette Selby were also named to the All-Area team, Susan George and Brenda White received honorable mention to All-Area.

Class Captures First Place
The 1980-81 juniors had a memorable year. The juniors were in charge of the Homecoming events choosing "Transportation" for the float theme and "Sailing” for the dance theme.
They placed well by winning the powder puff football game against the seniors, 6 to 0. They placed first with their float,
“Choo Choo Chew 'em up.”
The juniors made about $1,500 for selling magazines, breaking a school record. This money was very useful in the 1981 prom, put on by the juniors.
The Class had a dart throw for their money making project at the Fall Festival.

In the hopeless quest of extending a hand of appreciation to all the faithful contributors who put forth their own special efforts toward the 1981 yearbook, we say a big "thank you.”
Words can't express the sincere appreciation that we feel for our advisor, Mrs. Sally Hammond, for all her endless hours of work and supervision. Also, this year's yearbook staff deserves praise for all their accomplishments, because without them this book would not be.
Pictures are what make a yearbook special, and thanks to photographer, Mr. George Murphy, and student photographer, Rick Kostrzewski’s efforts this characteristic comes true.
Taylor Publishing Company’s representative, Mr. Lee Zimmerman, has also been a big help for all his advice and guidance.
We would also like to thank Mrs. Mary Leatherbury and Mrs. Marci Johnson for all the behind-the-scenes assistance they've given in organizing and making announcements for the staff. Thank you also to the faculty and administration for their cooperation on picture days.
Especially in these trying times, we would like to offer a special thanks to all the Advertisers, Patrons, and Subscribers who have contributed toward this year’s yearbook. Your financial aide and assistance are very much appreciated.
All in all, we have enjoyed working on this yearbook, and we sincerely hope it will bring many lasting memories. Thank you.
