the first'few days of getting desirable schedules and easing
into the daily routine of school, the work began.

effort was well worth it. I
After three weeks of grueling practice in the hot sun,
the Vale Viking grid squad was ready for the season. One
of the victories enjoyed by the school was the win over the
Ontario Tigers. Vale downed them 14-6. Once again, the
Vikings proved their supremacy over the Tigers. However,
Joe Garland, Viking quarterback left the game with an
arm injury and was sidelined for six weeks. Vikings
entered the AA State Football Quarterfinals, having lost
only one game, and that was to the Nyssa Bulldogs. The
Vale squad, the band, along with many fans journeyed
1,050 miles Cround tripj to watch Vale battle the Tilla-

spectacularly, winning 35-12. The Vale band received

Sadie Hawkins was nicely decorated and Mr. Johnson

Finally the basketball season came around and the
Vikings proved themselves. In a Payette Christmas tourna-
ment, Vale took first place. By the end of the season,
Vikings took second place.in the Greater Oregon League
