BASKETBALL HALF-TIME HIGHLIGHTERS After tryouts and ungluing the smiles that they have worn since the announcement of cheerleading tryouts, the psuedo images of cheerleaders are removed and we see the real people. Cheerleading is thought of as a frivolous activity; but in reality many long hours are spent preparing a good solid unit. Stunts such as back flips, front aerials, and towering mounts take a lot of practice and coordination. Cheerleaders from Wayne spent five days during the summer at Ball State University in Muncie at a UCA camp. The team captured six first place ribbons. " We worked hard, and had a great year. We ' re looking forward to having a better season next year, " said varsity cheerleader, Heidi Thiele. The cheerleaders spent three days a week in practice during the summer and two nights a week during school. They cheer at every junior varsity and varsity football and basketball games. They split up and cover all other varsity sports. " We try not to neglect the other sports. We just decide between us which team we ' d enjoy seeing and we go, " said Thiele. Cheerleading isn ' t the most strenuous sport, and some don ' t even consider it a sport, but it does have some advantages. Cheerleaders can wear short skirts that couldn ' t be worn in school, be noticed more than any other females at W.H.S., and be silly and get away with it; without people telling them to act their ages. Cheerleaders also take the criticism from the crowd, the sneers from the audience, and follow all the rules that the other athletes live and sometimes " die. " Another group at Wayne that built spirit this year was the new addition of the pom-pon squad. Under the direction of Rick Smith and Jerry Anderson, the pom-pon squad danced into the hearts of the General fans. " The girls have done an outstanding job at keeping the crowd rowdy while waiting for the start of the second haf of the game, " said captain Charita Singleton. This group of girls had trouble staying together. By the end of the basketball season over half of the girls had decided not to belong to this dance troupe. Explanations varied from " I don ' t have the time, " to " We just can ' t get along. " Next year the girls are hoping to form the unity that is needed in a spirit-building organization. The gym floor seemed pretty busy during half-time. The other group of girls entertaining the Wayne audience was the flag corps. These girls carried flags of bright colors, and added to the visual effect of the half-time highlights.

COACHES: DEDICATED INDIVIDUALS Coaching can be demanding and time consuming. So you have to be a dedicated individual, but some students can ' t decide what these hard working individuals are dedicated to; military discipline, power trips, or genuine student concern. Most students believe its the latter. Mr. Bob Fox has been here since the beginning of Wayne. You may see this man in the hall and look at him for face value. A geometry-algebra teacher who resembles a famous stand up comedian. What most people don ' t know is his background in sports that led him to coach here at Wayne. His coaching career started at Geyer Middle School where he coached basketball, track, and even led the seventh grade football team to an undefeated record. At Wayne he has headed the girls varsity program for seven years. This year he is taking Coach Oriffith explains to Sam Bennett how the play Is to run. Griffith has coached football for 21 years. on a new challenge. He is a co-coach of the girls ' tennis team along with Jim Chandler. Fox ' s view on coaching is very interesting. The teams that he is the proudest of are those that give the most. If his team ends up with a three and twelve record but gives 100% and in his mind reaches their potentia l, he is satisfied. A record does not show the team ' s worth. This man of experience. Coach Bill Griffith has a list of experience that leads all the way to twenty-one years of coaching in the football game. Before coming to Wayne Mr. Griffith was head football coach at Jeffersonville High School, which is located in southern Indiana. v BASKETBALL 107
