V ( ' ) ■ -4- p ' o - c - Beginnings can be confusing, disorganized, and frankly, terrifying ... for everyone. The unknowns to be faced, plans to be imple- mented, traditions to be begun, old alle- giances to be set aside, and a new direction toward togetherness, made even the stout of heart hesitate . . . then plunge ahead . . full of eagerness and anticipation. However, our beginnings did not occur spontaneously. They were planned, organized, modified and adjusted. Nothing was left to chance. So it would always be with our school . . . UNI- VERSITY CITY HIGH SCHOOL. Whitney Geer shows off her powerful forehand. UCHS was dedicated to educational excellence and began this tradition through careful selec- tion of administration and certificated and non- certificated staff members. Hundreds of appli- cants for department chairmanships and staff positions were received, screened, and inter- viewed. The teaching staff was selected for their ability, experience, diversification of backgrounds, and interests. Throughout the year they developed into a closely knit team, imbued with a single purpose . . . the finest educational experience possible for all stu- dents in attendance. Our student body was uniquely different as well! The junior class was primarily drawn from Clairemont High School and ultimately func- tioned as the upper class, while the sophomore class came from Standley Junior High School. The Voluntary Ethnic Educational Program (VEEP) drew students from south east San Diego and aided in providing a well-rounded ethnic mix during the year.

Some of our students were surprised to learn that the school curriculum was academically oriented, with each student enrolled in six classes per day and a large percentage of them planned to pursue further education after graduation. Each person had ample opportunity to take advantage of the school district ' s finest facili- ties. Industrial Arts, Science, Physical Educa- tion and the Math departments were just a few examples of educational areas which offered opportunities for the students who wished to avail themselves of them.

A large majority of the student body quickly and completely emersed themselves in partici- pation of general activities such as sports, stu- dent government, and clubs and organizations, while many parents involved themselves in the Citizens Advisory Council, which dedicated it- self to the total welfare of the students. This group became deeply involved in curricular im- plementation in all academic disciplines. The new solar unit experiment added its uniqueness to UCHS also. This solar powered heat and air-conditioning power unit provided the latest in energy innovation in Southern California and attracted visitors from around the world. Certainly, UCHS had the most com- pletely modern energy plant available. Derrin Buchert caught oH guard.

We learned to work together in the spirit of unity. to set aside old allegiances, and to strive to- gether toward common goals. These goals just started to become reality, and were an on- going quest. We started well, we made gains, however, no matter what results we achieved, each of us knew that we had truly only just begun. Ron Tyson takes pride in his work.

UCHS was conceived in con- troversy, became a focal point in the communi- ty and became a reality, with an obvious com- munity committment to quality education for all young people. Fifteen years ago the conceptual groundwork for a new community high school in University City was begun. During the insuing years the issue of construction on the present site be- came a polarizing influence within the commu- nity. Issues were brought forth in favor of con- struction and opposing viewpoints were also forcefully presented, and community members in both camps became dedicated to their causes. The integration issue introduced by the Carlin Case proposed that the new school was not required and, in fact, would serve an ethnic majority while precluding racial balance within the San Diego Unified School District. A group of citizens, who became known as the Edmonton Group, voiced the belief that the current site plans were strategically dangerous because of the proximity to the Miramar Naval Air Station jet flight path, thereby creating a dangerous safety factor for students in atten- dance. As always, the financial considerations also be- came a burning issue. The original plans called for a two-story building with an original esti- mated cost of twelve million dollars. Bonds were approved in that amount; however, as time passed, construction cost estimates soared concurrently with the rising inflationary spiral until an estimated cost of twenty-one million dollars was projected. The cost in- crease became another point of controversy and ultimately created negative attitudes rela- tive to plan and construction approval. Many citizens within the community, sensing a need for a school, bonded together to form Citizen Friends of University City High School. The members of the community, dedicated to the concept of the high school, worked dili- gently to bring to the public a clear under- standing of the need for the school construc- tion. Thousands of hours of meetings and dis- cussions took place, site development plans were examined for ways to reduce the total costs, safety evaluations were made, and ulti- mately the school construction was approved. UCHS was to be built and modifications of the original plans were completed, thereby reduc- ing the final cost to 17.3 million dollars. Upon opening the doors of the school, the students and the community were pleased to note that all of the work which had proceeded had not been in vain. The planning, co nstruction and ultimate staff- ing were so carefully orchestrated that UNI- VERSITY CITY HIGH SCHOOL began classes in an atmosphere of confidence, purpose and dedication. We, the yearbook staff of 1981-82, dedicate this first edition to the University City commu- nity and all those citizens who have expressed their feelings and concerns. University City High School IS a symbol of democracy in pro- gress and has only just begun. 18 19 20 Administration-Faculty Staff Administration Principal: (prm ' se pel) adj 1. First in rank au- thority, importance, degree, etc. 2. that is or has to do with principal. 1. a principal person or thing; specif; a) a chief or head b) a governing officer, specif, of a school. The definition of a Principal just touches the surface of all the responsibilities and qualities of our Principal, Mrs. Catherine Hopper. Mrs. Hopper is not only head of University City High School but is considered a friend to all who know her. She is enthusiastic and dedicated to our school and to all the students who attend. She considers this first year of University City High a building year. She is striving to build a school which has a strong reputation of achievement in academics as well as in other areas. She has one special goal this year . . to develop strong leadership skills in students and to give them a feeling of self-confidence and pride which they can carry with them through- out their lives. All of these qualities make our Principal, Mrs. Hopper, one of the best in her field. Mrs Hopper. Principal, works on the master sched- ule. Mrs. Hopper and Dr. Keating discuss a program change.

Ms. Castleberry is the ASB administra- tor. She helps plan activities and helps set bud- gets. She is also the main problem-solver with the cheerleaders, and is the representative of the PTA. Ms. Castleberry felt our first year here was a growing and expanding year, in which we grew in school spirit, human rela- tions, academics, and extra curricular activi- ties. Ms. Castleberry felt our first year was an example for all years to follow. Mr. Joe Tafoya is University City High School ' s other Vice- Principal. He transferred from Madison High School which was a school of 2600 students. He feels the difference in enrollment of stu- dents does not matter . . . general attitude counts. Mr. Tafoya supervises ground mainten- ance, the lunch area, and the parking lot. He is also in charge of the general supervision of the teachers, budget planning and helps them or- der supplies. The area of athletics is another of his responsibilities. He aids in scheduling sports meets and games, is in charge of all the paper work for ordering equipment, checking eligibility and keeping attendance records. Mr. Tafoya hopes that students view him not only as an authority figure but also as someone they can tell their latest jokes to. Ms. Castleberry takes five minutes from tier busy day. Mr. Tafoya takes a quick break after scfiool. Mr. Tafoya converses between classes. Counseling The first year at University City High School was a great success due to the tremendous counseling staff lead by Dr. Boyd Gilliland. Dr. Gilliland was selected as head counselor well in advance of the end of school last year, so that he could start the planning and enrollment pro- cess for University City High School students. His job was made easier with the help of Ms. Sandy Brookes and Dr. Weldon Keating, who were appointed as counselors last summer. It was during this time that the plans for the opening of school were worked out. Throughout the year U.C.H.S. counseling staff solved difficult problems which enabled our school to run smoothly and efficiently. Their mam disappointment was that there was not enough time in the day to devote it to all the necessary problems of their students. Their enthusiasm for their job and their attitude to- wards the staff and students helped make the counseling department the tremendous suc- cess it was.

Our campus re- flected the constant effort of the Administra- tive Assistant, the gardeners, and the custo- dians. The secretaries did an outstanding job to keep everything in order. The cafeteria workers were hampered by construction prob- lems, but still managed to have things ready each day. Those who became ill knew that the nurse would be there to help just as the guid- ance offered by those who worked in the Media Center. Because of the efforts of these people, University City High School was a better place.

Mr. Asakawa, and Mrs. White were all part of the excellent science staff at University City High School. They taught a basic biology class, a chemistry, and a physics course. Students worked on different labs such as observing organisms through the microscope and learned about blood typing. Next year, the Science Dept. anticipates add- ing two new classes to the science program, Marine Science and Science Survey. Marine Science consists of marine biology and ocean- ography and Science Survey will be a general introductory course into chemistry, biology, earth science and physics. Science requires a studious mind. Maurice Johnson and Lisa Piatt take a test. Rosmarie Day and Diane Gosney listen contently, as Mr Owen lectures. 56 Mr. Price helps Dean Morafcik with a homework assign- ment. Mathematics Although it was a first year at U.C, it did not interfere with the variety of mathematical courses available to the students. Classes were offered to fullflll the needs of everyone. The Math Department not only consisted of the basic courses and college prep courses, but also a computer club and even a math team. Shawn Logue awaits the results of her math test. Students prepare for another hour of math. Socia Studies History is one of the requirements that every student must take during high school. " It is the study of mankind, development of past and present, " states Mrs. Maple chairmen of the Social Studies department. Trips to many dif- ferent museums for enrichment were one of the activities that were incorporated within the cirriculum. " History helps us as a person be- come more aware of each other, " commented Mrs. Maple. The highlight of the year for the department was the Renaissance fair.

There were advanced classes as well as general learning classes. U.C. High also had a program called English as a Second Language which was taught by Ms. Peterson who also taught the advanced sophomore classes. Mrs. McGowan, the advanced American Lit. teacher and head of the English Department, deserved credit for such a well organized department.

The California Scholarship Federation is an honor organization established for the purpose of fostering high standards of scholarship, ser- vice and citizenship on the part of the students of the senior high schools of California. To be eligible as a member of the C.S.F., a student must have a grade point average of 3.5 or higher. Membership in the C.S.F. is very benefi- cial to students. On graduation, a special seal of merit will be received on their diploma and on all college transcripts and they graduate with honors. - ' ii « % 4 The C.S.F. members of University City High. 61 Activities . . 62 JrO JyuJ- 63 Newcoming November 20th, 8:00 pm marked the night, U.C.H.S. held their first semi-formal dance. The X-Offenders and a disc jockey supplied the music while the ninety attending couples made it a success. Although it was held in the gym, the ASB did a wonderful job of recreating a usually athletic atmosphere into one of excite- ment and fun. The theme " We ' ve Only Just Begun " was more than appropriate for the evening, and made it one for all to remember. The name " Newcoming " was given to our semi-formal dance based on the premise of no tradition. Since everything was new at this site, a catchy name was needed to promote the dance. The X-Offenders s upplied the sounds for Newcoming ' 81. Shayne Ireland and Pam Howe live it up on the dance floor. .)ohn Werner and Sandy Ellison enjoy a funfilled evening.

Dances are the unforgettable times that make the school year memorable. The first dance of the year took place in the gym in September, with music provided by a local band called Tastey. The last basketball game of the season was followed by a dance with a disc- jockey from 13K who provided the music. P.T.S.A. was a great help in promoting and sponsoring after game dances, to keep school spirit and enthusiasm going strong. students enjoy, listen, and dance to the music.

Pep Rallies This year ' s pep rallies brought out enthusiasm and spirit in the sophomore and junior classes. Pep rallies encouraged people to participate as spectators at various sports events. The cheer- leaders organized activities in which the classes competed against each other. Clap- ping, cheering and yelling of the cheerleaders kept the spirit alive. The main purpose for the pep rallies was introducing the sports activities and building school enthusiasm. The rowdy juniors show their spirit.

The A.S.B. officers, advised by Mr. Yandall, did a terrific job in promoting the spirit. The week of December 13-18 was designed as " Spirit Week " . Prizes were awarded on Toga Day, Holiday Day, and Preppy Day to encourage participation from the students. Other activi- ties included Mr. Owen getting " Creamed " in the " Pie in the Face " contest. The canned food drive and the proceeds from the " Pie in the Face " contest went to needy families to cele- brate the holiday season. All in all, this year ' s spirit week was one to be remembered.

By game time, anticipation was in the air, and the girls were ready to go. Although the first half was eventful, it ended scoreless. The second half was action packed with both teams rallying to score with minutes left the Sophomores lead 12-6. The Juniors had a last minute play that would have tied it up, but was called back and the game ended Sophomores victorious. It was a premiere game that all enjoyed. i. 9 mM £•»« f Regina Curry cuts across the field. Sheila Wenzel looks for an opening. Sl Monique Weaver dodges Cathy Billy. Kris Zounes starts the game.

University City High ' s first variety show began. The vari- ety show was filled with sixteen extremely en- tertaining acts, which varied from staff singing and dancing to a comedy skit by the Drama Club. Mrs. Mendoza, organizer of this year ' s variety show predicted an exciting outcome. She also commented on the exquisite talent of the performers. Students, as well as staff members worked long and hard to make this show a success and their determination was well expressed in their performances. Brian Duncan stood out among the other performers with an incredible piano solo, and The Press, a rock band formed by students from U.C. High, excited the crowd with an outstanding perfor- mance of The Rolling Stones ' " Start Me Up " . Despite Mrs. Mendoza ' s comment that the show was not well organized, the perfor- mances were a tremendous success. Maurice Johnson.

They took time out to learn and prac- ti ce the cheers. They participated in a pep rally and performed cheers at the powderpuff Robert Clark, Richard Singer, Brett Wilson, and Matt Banet ame, topping it off with a pyramid.

Every student maintained their studies while keeping sensible work hours. Some student employees were enrolled in work experience, which allowed them to leave school early so they could work and still get credit for the time they were out of school. Students had jobs at various facilities like Jack- In-The-Box and other fast food restaurants. A big source of jobs was the University Towne Centre. Many were employed there and bene- fitted greatly from their jobs. It gave them a greater sense of responsibility, maturity, and independence. Tim Reeves; Union 76 Station.

Ann ' s interests consist of going to parties and listening to music. Some of her favorite groups are The Talking Heads and David Bowie. Some of the changes in Ann ' s life are her school day as in Norway they are required to attend seven classes in a very large school with the class periods being shorter. " It ' s nice here but I wouldn ' t want to live here in the U.S. forever because! miss Norway " , commented Ann. Bjorn Romberg is from Sweden. He and his family are here because they wished to retire in the United States and decided to settle here in San Diego in 1980, " Going to school here is aca- demically harder but more fun " stated Bjorn. In Sweden, students do much the same as they do here such as going to parties, movies and listening to mu- sic. Bjorn enjoys listening to New Wave as well as playing soccer and skiing. Drahoslav Lim is involved in many different activities such as music, having played in a dance band in Czechoslovakia, playing soccer and electronics, Drahoslav has found that living in San Diego is drastically different than his native Czechoslo- vakia. 79 Faculty Basketball The teachers and custodians were decked out in uniforms in preparation for a good basketball game. With faculty consisting mostly of coaches, the custodian ' s out look was not bright. The custodians showed more heart and determination and pulled out a slim victory with a final score of 36-34. All of the crowd agreed that the players played up to their po- tential of unexperienced basketball players. The game was enjoyed and helped University City High School begin another tradition.

High ' s first Drama Production was a tre- mendous accomplishment. The drama class put in many hours of hard work to make the show successful.

The honor of being Head Cheerleader was given to the friendly, smiley face, Olivia Price. She had alot of re- sponsiblities and handled them all really well. They attended the USA cheerleading camp at UCSD during the summer and received many awards and ribbons for their outstanding per- formance. They also came in second place in a cheerleading competition between other schools. " We did work really hard, practiced everyday, planned and organized all of the pep- rallys, and some of the school activities.

Key Club Key Club membership was available to all stu- dents with enthusiasm for community and school involvement. Mr. Price, club moderator held regular meetings every Wednesday during lunch in his room, Room 436. The local Kiwanis Club provided leadership and direction when requested and also aided the club throughout the school year. During the summer months statewide conventions were held to provide club members with the opportunity to share experiences and common expectations so that they could return to their individual schools and provide positive leadership roles. Environmental awareness was a key issue dur- ing the year and club members became in- volved in community service related activities The major fund raising event took the form of the 1981 Christmas Tree Sale held at Standley Park. Key Club membership provided each in- dividual with an opportunity to become socially aware and community conscious. Members of the Key Club en,oy their lunch at a weekly meeting.

ASB Cabinet had a tough job getting students interested and involved in the activi- ties going on, because it was a brand new school. The ASB had to start new traditions and encourage the students to be more enthu- siastic about attending U.C.H.S. ASB advisor Mr. Yandall comments, " The ASB of 1981-82 probably had more hurdles to overcome than any other ASB I ' ve ever known. Saddled with creating new traditions and establishing a fun and positive attitude, or first ASB met this chal- lenge head on, with great success. " With a year of practice, next years ASB will be more organized and run smoother. Through this first year our ASB Cabinet learned to work together as a group to improve school activities.

Lauri Cleveland, the club ' s president, explained about the club. " We are a branch of the " Z " club, an internati onal service organization. We named ourselves the Amatas, which stands for friendship and service. " The club was made up of approximately thirty girls from U.C.H.S. and they met the second and fourth Thurs- day of every month. During their meetings, they planned activities and fund raisers for the year. Some of the activities the Amata Club did was an- swer telephones during the Cerebral Palsey Tele- thon and ushered at the U.C.H.S. benefit concert at U.C.S.D. They raised money through bake sales, to pay for the carpet in the office. Advisor, Mrs. White, assisted in planning the Amata Club ' s activi- ties and helped to make a very successful organiza- tion. Kneeling: Kathy Tin. Margie Bastida, Cynthia Chaney. Joyce Padigos.

Lacking a spe- cific club curriculum, the students worked in- dependently on self-initiated projects. The pro- grams they developed included utility manage- ment, games, color graphics, and conic section applications. In addition, the students also wrote computer programs to serve the school in the areas of budget, inventory control, sports statistics, and accounting. The club membership held steady at fifteen members, however, many more students showed an in- terest and participated in club meetings and outings. With a goal of computer literacy for the staff and students of U.C.H.S., the mem- bers of the computer club looked forward to expanding the roll of computers in the lives of the persons at U.C.H.S.

Rob Vance, " we were a new school and just starting out, we could develop a trend for annuals in future years. " During our first year as U.C.H.S. ' s Excelsus staff, we ex- perienced many obstacles. Minor mishaps arose because of an inexperienced but highly motivated staff who worked together as a unit during the school year, as well as devoting their own time on weekends and holidays for critically demanding deadlines that had to be met. With constant and unyielding support and guidance from staff advisor, Mr. Rob Coons, we recaptured memories that all could enjoy of an unforgetable first year. Although we worked hard, the real pay off came when the annual was finished. staffers listen to Mr. Coons ' suggestions. — Vm t ' 1 • Back row: Sheila Wenzel, Cathy Billy, Dana Harwood, Tern Vanderhoof.

The bus left Friday at 3:00 P.M. with 40 students, for an 8 hour ride to Mammoth. The Ski Club stayed in condos which were located about 15 minutes from the slopes. There was a wide range of skiers, from the beginners to the most advanced. The Ski Club advisor, Mr. Yandall, commented, " I think everyone had a fantastic time, no matter what their ability. I hope all our ski trips will be as much fun. " No sleeping on the bus trip up Front Row: Benito Singer, Dana Harwood. Greg Coleman, Evan Stacheiek, Greg Kopels.

The store sold foods, school materials, T-shirts etc. It was flocked with people before and after school and during lunch. Throughout the year students enjoyed the benefits of having a store close by to purchase needed items. People in- volved in ASB worked in the store. ASB adviser Mr. Yandall comments, " The store exists for the students so that we try to cater to students desires and needs within the framework set forth by the San Diego City School district. " Proceeds from the store went to ASB funds and these funds helped ASB to sponsor the activities that went on throughout the year. Back Row: Deanna Bakhos. Lauri Cleaveland. Glen Livesay.

The magazine includes poems, artwork, short sto- ries, photographs, and musical compositions. The students were allowed to enter anything creative to contribute to the magazine. The advisor, Madelon McGowan, had a very prom- ising and devoted staff who did a very well done job this year. The magazine comes out only once every year, but when it does it is well worth it. The staff reads stories for the upcoming edition Eddie McGoarty, and Carol Croft edit poetry. Eddie McGroarty, Dave Michael, David Owen, Annette Gorholt. Carol Croft, Mrs. McGowen.

The staff of the Commander was able to present to the Student Body a variety of news features and editorial articles. Even though the staff was made up of students new to journal- ism, this didn ' t handicap the performance and production of the first year ' s papers. Staff members combined their talents and special skills in assemblying the first series of the Com- mander by writing copy and taking photo- graphs. Although sometimes an edition be- came a struggle, certainly all the work was more than worth the effort when the final product was released. The students definitely were successful throughout the entire year. Through all the laughter and arguments, the staff published many memorable editions.

They met every Friday during lunch to plan their trips, and dis- cuss the different types of fishing equipment to be used for various excursions. One of the many trips taken by the club was to Otay Lake for bass fishing. The club was interested in both fresh and salt water fishing and, " We will go anywhere to fish " , said Michael Greening. This feeling was shared by many members of the club. Thanks to their enthusiasm the club was a great success. % ' 1 First Row; Mr. Howard Vitkus, Asakawa. Margi Bastida, Dan Person.

Stephanie Wells was president of the club, which met once a week at lunch time and after school to discuss other types of drama and art activities throughout the community, and practice for their spring comedy. The club took extra time to design their own stage and props, because there was no designated stage production class. The spring comedy went over well with many stu- dents and parents attending for an evening of fun and laughs. With a year of experience be- hind them, we can look forward to a successful and talented group for the future.

Mr. Wong headed the program which included members of the faculty, administration, classi- fied staff, and parents. Another program that dealt with Racial problems was ESAA. ESAA included students from all different races and backgrounds. These students worked together as a group to achieve their main goal, which was to make U.C.H.S. a better place for every- one.

Mr. Pat Scanlan, the instructor, felt that it should be used to the maximum, therefore, he invited his students to come in after school on their own each Wednesday to use the facilities. Stu- dents worked on their cars or helped restore a car that was a special project. It was deter- mined that at the end of the year a lucky stu- dent was to receive the project car through a drawing of names. i Matt Doyle listens to his finely tuned engine.

" I was very pleased to see so many students interested in the choir, " stated Mr. John Gilliland, the choir ' s Director. " The size of the class nearly doubled second semester " . The students were taught fundamentals and sang a wide variety of music. " He ' s a great teacher. He really knows what he ' s doing, " commented choir member, Steve Multer. By selling M M candies, jewelry and mistletoe, they were able to finance their yearly activi- ties, such as the purchase of their uniforms. They held performances around the county which included a city festival, various perfor- mances within the community, and a Winter and Spring Concert.

They went on the field, whether to practice or to play a game, determined to give one hundred per- cent to the U.C.H.S. cause and bring home victory. Although this year ' s squad was only Junior Varsity, their competitive attitude and courage enabled them to play at the high school level of Varsity. Each time they compet- ed at the Varsity level they surprised everyone with their excellent style of play and great abili- ty by the skilled centurion coaching staff, head- ed by Coach Steve Vukojevich. The football players unity as a team was one big factor in their success. This unity allowed them to main- tain team spirit, which was greatly needed. i Ddrnell Hopkins signals another touchdown Greg Haap makes another great catch Troy Duncan scrambles to the sidelines 116 Front Row: John Werner, Ron Ravelo, Al Munevar, Ron Anesklewicz, Rob Vance, Brett Wilson, Bill McDonald, Glen Boroughs, Maurice Johnson, Mike Houghton, Albert Crosby, Adrian Banks, Ricardo Singer, 2nd Row: John Fitzhugh, Troy Duncan, Steve Carpowich, Derek Thompson, George England Bob Milner, Brett Barber, Tony Peterson, Don Fess, Steve Jones, Larr Gordon, Greg Haap, David Gray, David Weinbaum, 3rd Row: Coach Lamott, -oach Hill, Tony Reed, Vernon Parrish, Gray Fuller, Delano Jones, Glen Lublin, Matt Banet, Ron Vance, Rob Moscato, Rob Martin, Steve Smith, Pete Bkowronski, Darrin Buchert, Matt Brock, Jerry Paladino, Coach Pais, Coach Vukojevich.

" Like any high school team, we ' re building up for next year " , commented Coach LaMotte. About seventy five people tried out for baseball, and it took two cuts to get down to the thirty best ballplayers, fifteen on Varsity, and fifteen on J.V. There was one sophomore on the Varsity team, the rest were juniors. " This season we don ' t expect to win many games, but we will play well. Especially our de- fense " , was Coach LaMotte ' s final statement. Greg Haap makes It back. Ron Tyson throws the runner out at first. Matt Banet awaits the ball at the plate.

Baseball The Junior Varsity Baseball team were primar- ily sophomores this year. Although they had little experience with high school level base- ball, they played with a winning attitude. The team consisted of 15 hardworking and dedi- cated players. Their practices included run- ning, batting and fielding, with an emphasis on teamwork. They showed a solid pitching staff, and as stated by Coach Vukojevich, " They are good prospects and competative at the J.V. level. " Front Row: J. Nichols, M. Deguzman, J. Jacobs, K. Parks, B.

Boys ' Track " On your mark, get set, go!, " was exactly what our first University City High School Junior Var- sity Track Team did. This year ' s track team really put their " right foot " forward toward a winning season. They all worked very well to- gether to make a solid J.V. squad even though track is such an individual sport. Their coach, Mr. Mitchell, really enjoyed work- ing with them and felt that " we will be a Power- house in later years. " The practices were ev- ery day after school until about 3:30 and were used as a training ground for the Varsity level. The performance of the player during prac- tices, was decisive as to who ran J.V. or Varsity at the next meet. Vernon Parrish sprints to the tape. First Row: Mark Richards. Tony Romag.

Their practices were held every day after school until 3:30 p.m. Group practices consisted of jogging around the track and stretching out. After warm-ups they broke up into four different groups which were weights, high jumpers, sprinters, and long dis- tance runners. Their coach. Rick Mitchell, was a former teacher and coach at Point Loma High and was very inspirational to the team. His time and efforts were spent well, ending the track season with a trip to C.I.F. finals for the top three competitors for each event. ' though track is an individual sport, it tor- ' group effort to make a successful team. Eddie Singleton breathes hard as he crosses the finish line. Wayne Fort prepares to unload the discus.

High, being a unique school, has an A- Team and a B-Team. Each team would help out the other, that is, if a girl on one team couldn ' t compete, a girl from the other team would take her place. Coach Thompson was very pleased with the turnout for girls track. " Girls from all of the different sports tried out for track this year, " Coach Thompson stated. Coach Thompson said, " the girls have a lot of talent and ability, I really think that they will have a good season.

Coach Smith assisted his players in improving their performances in compe- titions. They competed in both doubles and singles, and prac- ticed using back boards and ball machines. The matches consisted of the best two out of three sets. They looked forward to playing such teams as La Jolla and Point Loma. The top seated singles player, Chris Henderson, was a sophomore and Coach Smith looked forward to having Chris for two more years. Standing: C. Henderson. S. Whntner, S. Pitkin, S. Hunt, K.

Be- sides having interscholastic sports, people have other hobbies and interests. Throughout the year, their hobbies may take them many places, from local or county competitions to recognized state or country affairs. Some just spend their time pursuing their hobbies on weekends or holidays, others who have bigger goals need to practice every free moment they get. Whether amatuer, or on to professional, you must enjoy what your doing to make it all worthwhile. Greg Happ in an Over The Line Tournament.

Coach Viana and Coach Jacobs were highly skilled, and put together the J.V. and Varsity teams with a great deal of confidence. The J.V. soccer team worked to- gether as an aggressive unit. With tough oppo- nents, their skills proved themselves and led to proud victories. Soccer was one of the most difficult and physically demanding sports of the year. U.C. High soccer teams knew what they had to do to become a cohesive unit and strove to preform their best for U.C.H.S. Coach Viana gives the team a pre-game talk.

Being a soccer oriented com- munity, the coach had a good selection of play- ers and most of the Varsity athletes had played in other area leagues. During nineteen games and two scrimmages they performed admira- bly. The team consisted of Juniors and Sopho- mores and had to compete against Seniors. They expected a winning season. They prac- ticed everyday and with the assistance of coach Jacobs became a well-organized team. Coach Jacobs enjoyed instructing his athletes on the many ta ctics of soccer. The varsity soc- cer games were well attended, and were sup- ported by a soccer oriented community. Bottom Row: Fred Hilgers. David Holloway. Damon Werner, Derek Underwood. Artie Johnson.

Although they struggled with the tough West- ern League this season, they realized that getting to " the top " would be tough. And by overcoming their mistakes, each day they got closer to exceling towards perfection next year! Jon Ekeroth dribbles in to shoot for two Troy Duncan pivits to offset tfie defense.

The team contained many good players and they worked hard to establish themselves as a team. In the begin- ning of the season they didn ' t perform up to par but improved greatly under the guidance of Coach Vukojevich. With at least one game a week, the team improved. Even after a defeat the players spirits were always high! Although they were inexperienced they practiced every afternoon to insure a competitive team. Front Row: Mike DeGuzman.

Softball " Strive to win " was the attitude that was In the minds of the Junior Varsity softball players. " Most of us have had previous experience be- fore, but playing highschool softball was alot tougher. We were very determined and worked hard to be winners. " said Heather Wilson, " We put effort into everything we did. " The players all got along really well. They worked together as a team during practice everyday working on infield, batting skills, and outfield drills for ap- proximately two hours a day. They really did a super job for their starting year and had a promising season. Jeanne Lamotte throws the third strike.

Great team spirit and excellent coaching by Coach Pais and Assistant Coach Rob Coons resulted in a successful sea- son. Although lacking overall depth in high school Softball, Coach Pais knew that there was plenty of talent which was not yet cultivated, so he relied on Tiffany Piper, a superb GSA pitcher, to anchor the team and start them off on the right foot. With 100% cooperation and effort In every practice and game the others were not far be- hind and showed a great amount of improve- ment throughout the year. By the end of the season they were. . .

The enthusiastic Varsity squad was led by a determined coach, Mr. Mike McDonald. He worked everyday with the girls on their skills and techniques. They practiced offensive and defensive plays for many hours. As a first year team, the girls worked well to- gether, helping each other. One of their strongest points was their spirit and attitude which helped to make them a competitive team. r Jeanne McCracken makes a jump shot.

Girls ' Basketball The first season for the J.V. Girls Basketball Team was an exciting success. The girls improved throughout the season with the assistance of coach Paterson and the team consisted partly of girls who had participated in athletics earlier in the year. It took extremely hard work to perfect their skills as after school practices were strenuous and con- sisted of such things as shooting drills, running exercises, and learning plays. •- Hayley Moss puts the ball up for two points.

Most of the girls were sophomores who played for their first time in competition, but there were a few juniors. They first met as a team on August 31, 1981 and practiced ev- ery day for two hours. The practices were held at Standley Junior High because the courts at U.C.H.S. were not ready. There were no tryouts this year but almost anyone was able to join the team as long as they had some tennis experience. Next year there definitely will be tryouts. Coach Thompson doesn ' t know how far they ' ll go in competition because they are a new team and there are no seniors, however she com- mented " I ' m proud of the team and so is the school!

Pride-that ' s what its all about! UCHS cross country runners pressed for personal and team excellence by testing themselves each minute, hour and mile. Every runner and team member probed his breaking point and triumphed in the knowledge that he could and did continually achieve and surpass all expectations. Daily workouts became gruelling tests of en- durance as the athletes completed four, five, six and seven miles per day. All one step at a time . . . until . . at week ' s end, a staggering forty miles or more had been logged! Without varsity or junior varsity status, the self- less athletes excelled individually and as team members and prepared themselves for district competition and a chance to taste victory!!!

These girls worked extremely hard, and put forth tremendous effort to achieve their goals. Their workouts consisted of running an aver- age of forty miles per week. In order to main- tain this average, they had to run a consider- able amount of time with the team, as well as on their own. Monica Irvine and Patty S teins limber-up. An afternoon practice.

" We had no exper- ienced players, so this year was mostly a build- ing year, building up our attitudes, skills, team- work and basically athletes, " said Coach Scan- Ian. They first met as a team early in Septem- ber and practiced four hours after school when the season began. " We set goals and attempt- ed to meet them everytime we played, " ex- plained the Coach. The students really sup- ported each other and taught as they played. They were great friends toward each other even when they weren ' t on the courts. The team had excellent team and individual skill. " Even when we had a loss we still walked off proud, with our heads up, " replied Coach Scanlan, " there was nothing holding us back.

" Nice and supportive " , said Caryn Gold, J.V. team captain, about their coaches, Ms. Scan- Ion and Ms. Patterson. The team was very competitive compared to other teams in our district.
