 The Buffalo Spirit shines through in an action-packed ’82!Our football season opens with an air of excitement as Buffalo fans anxiously enter the stadium to cheer our team and support the new herd of battling Buffaloes. 3Friday night football provides an opportunity for an expressive and talented performance by a successfully dedicated Baker High School Band. Conscientious band members practice daily after school to perfect their routines and showmanship for the Friday night games. Several band members were featured in a solo, honoring Robert E. Lee, during the Hammond vs. Baker game. 4Cameras capture various responses from our students and teachers. Rare emotions arc depicted on these pages. Mr. Noble is absorbed in biological thoughts. Mrs. Narcisse beams radiantly as she maintains control of Eric Williams, and Mrs. Pratt attempts a mathematical explanation for Charles Wintz. Correlating the techniques mastered in the classroom, these individuals exhibit a practical application of the skills learned in the horticulture class, the science laboratory, and the physical education program.m Scholars often gather in the library to investigate certain aspects of their assignments. While Mrs. Sumrall completes the arduous task of accumulating the seniors' records, this one senior appears not in the least concerned.10Opening the doors of Baker High School this year, our student body swings into another year’s routine. Although the schools in Fast Baton Rouge Parish have been desegregated, this session commenced under new desegregation orders. Baker High School’s initial program functioned successfully with cheerful student participation. CHEERLEADERS 82-83 11Invited by the cheerleaders to the Covington pep rally, Mr. Bullock (the Assistant Principal on leave) encouraged the student body to support our team’s courageous efforts.14SENIORS SENIORS 18-41 SENIOR PERSONALITIES 18-25 PROM 28-31 GRADUATION 32-35 SENIOR SHOWCASE 36-41 HOMECOMING 42-47 FOOTBALL 48-61 ADMINISTRATORS, SECRETARIES, ART, AND SOCIAL STUDIES TEACHERS 62-67 17Jeff Alexander '«EST PERSONALITY 1VDA RIQHOP DAMW WII I'KAnthony Allen Sam Alsandcr Darryl Andrews Brett Antolinc Doug Arbour Kimberly Arnette Tina Arscncault Desiree Aultman Jcrric Badeaux Jodie Bailey Richard Bailey Susan Bambarger Theresa Bankston Wade Barnes Ricky Barnett Stacie Barrios David Barrow Lorraine Batiste 20John Rates Darrell Baxter Jennifer Beard Edna Belonc Quccnic Bcthlcy Martic Bishop Myra Bishop Robin Blanchard Marsha Boles Paula Booker Mary Boucher Monica Boucher Robin Bracy Virginia Brandi Todd Bridges I 23Roxanne Bullcr David Burns Deborah Burns Mccho Burns Dana Burris Stanley Butcher Todd Campbell Bridget Cason Kenny Cclcstine Stephanie Chustz 1-inda Brown Sonia Brown Vivian Brown Robbie Bryant 24Kenneth Clark Wayne Clark Rhonda Cline Tony Coale Elizabeth Cobbins Brenda Coleman Trcsslcr Coleman Arthur Collins MOST TALENTED SHAWN JONES JIM WILLIAMSJoseph Cornclious Cascillc Courtney Carl Dahadie David Dabadic Lisa K.

Baker jumped out in front, with a touchdown scored by Jeff Alexamder, 6-0. With two minutes and forty-seven seconds left in the first half, the Wolves went ahead 7-6. Mitch MeGrew threw a forty-eight yard bomb to Alexander. This left Baker with a 12-7 edge and one minute and thirty-six seconds left in the second quarter. With twenty-six seconds left before the half, Redemptorist scored. The outcome was Re- demptorist 14 and Baker 12. REDEMPTORISTbO Early in the game Broadmoor jumped ahead to create a lead of 12-0, but the defense held them; therefore, the Buffs came back with a victory of 21-12. Tailback. Troy Nettles, led all rushers with 136 yards in 18 carries for a 7.6 yard average and one touchdown. Defensive credits go to Larry Sc-guin, Ashley Scott, Carl Dabadic, and Ben Cupit. Despite the two Broadmoor touchdowns early in the game, the defense played an outstanding game. This triumph was Baker’s defensive strategist's, Milton Broussard, one hundredth victory. A 21 yard punt return by Paul McJulicn began the Buffalo rally in the second period. In six plays the Buffs covered thirty-six yards for a touchdown including a Mitch McGrcw pass to the running back, Jeff Alexander, for the final thirteen yards. With an unsuccessful extra point attempt, the score was 12-6 at the half. After the Buffalo Stampede gained sixty yards in seven plays, Alexander scored on a seven yard run with sixteen seconds of play remaining. Paul McJulien’s kick brought the score to its final destination, 21-12.m When Baker and Fast Ascension met on the gridiron, the crowds filled the stands to see a close, physical ballgame. This year was no exception; the game was a tight one and the decision could have gone either way. East Ascension capitalized on a Baker fumble which decided the game. East Ascension made mistakes during the game, but the Buffs could not seem to convert these mistakes into points. The result of their play was East Ascension 14 and Baker 7. 51 E. ASCENSIONOPELOUSAS 52 Baxer aownea the previously unbeaten Opelousas Tigers 20-7 in non-district action. The Buffs took a 14-7 halftime lead thanks to a twenty-eight yard gain on a fake punt by Paul McJulien and a thirty yard scoring pass from Mitch McGrew to Charles Sanders. After an impressive first half, the Buffs came back stronger. With a seventy-one yard drive. Nettles scores from three yards out.The Buffaloes were roaring early in the game against the Hammond Tornadoes. With the Buffs leading by wide margins in the first half, the Tornadoes fought back to make the halftime score 24-21 with the Buffs still holding on to the lead. The second half proved disastrous for the Buffs. A Tor made an interception at his own three yard line, and the Hammond offense drove it in for seven points and a win. 53COVINGTON Baker’s game against Covington began with a bang. The Lion’s quick scoring was followed by Baker’s scoring. It looked as though the game was going to be a close call. Our Buffs were really ready for this game — the week of the game was declared spirit week. The student body supported their Buffs, but Covington's team just had a little more going for them. The outcome was Covington 21, Baker 7. 54Help from Baker’s Paul MeJulien easily rolled us to a 36-0 win over the Yellowjack-cts of Denham Springs. Two runs, both as a punter and a punt returner, enabled MeJu-lian to score two touchdowns which covered 72 and 75 yards respectively. The Buff noseguard. Larry Seguin, and his crew kept the Ycllowjackcts' offense on the ropes which resulted in a shu- tout for the Buff defense. S5 DENHAGULFPORT 56 Baker took the opening kickoff and proceeded to march 73 yards in 8 plays to take an early 7-0 lead. A Carl Dadabie interception, the first of two for him in the game, stalled a Gulfport threat and started Baker on the way to our second touchdown. Alexander gained the next touchdown, and Moran added the extra point to give Baker a 14-0 lead. On Gulfport’s next possession the Admirals fumbled on first down, and linebacker David Dadabie recovered for the Buffs at the Gulfport 24. On 3rd and 10, McGrew passed into the endzone, and it was intercepted by Rodney Buford. Instead of downing the ball, Buford attempted to run out of the end zone and lateral the ball to a teammate. But the ball sailed into the end zone, where Bowie fell on it for a Baker touchdowm. Moran's extra point was wide, leaving Baker with a 20-0 lead at that point. The ultimate victory was gained by the Baker Buffaloes. ST' ■ £ ',-■ With three Buff Running Backs gaining over one-hundred yards on the ground, the high scoring Baker gridders rolled to an easy 48-13 route of the Wildcats from Central. The large Homecoming crowd applauded both the Buffaloes and the Homecoming Queen, Myra Bishop. The Homecoming Court watched intently as the offense gained 488 stripes in total yardage. During the first quarter, the defensive teams for the Buffaloes and Wildcats dominated play. The Buffs gained enough yardage for two field goals of twenty-seven and thirty yards by Paul McJulicn. A seventy-nine yard drive in four plays ended in a “bang” with Buff back, Jeff Alexander. taking the ball in from nineteen yards to up the score to 13-0. The Wildcats rallied with a fake punt and a touchdown pass by the quarterback. Scooter Morris, to Lee Beard. Baker stormed out following its Homecoming activities at halftime with a five touchdown explosion led by the dazzling performance of Buff back, Troy Nettles. Nettles also led all ground gains with 171 yards. Central did manage another touchdown in the third quarter, leaving the final score at 48-13. CENTRALLAIRE H M The Bclairc Bcngals thought they had pounced on the Buffaloes when they took an early 14-0 lead in the game played at Olympia Field. The Battling Buffs stood their ground and came out on top, 25-22. “It was a tight game and a great win for us,” said Coach Stewart. Perhaps the best play of the game was Marlon Jackson's interception. Just when the Bcngals thought they might widen their lead, their quarterback, Walter Lee Hughes, made a flat pass to Shane Rube which was deflected into Marlon Jackson's hands. Jackson traveled eighty yards down the sidelines and Baker led for the first time. 18-14. This extra-effort play contributed to Baker’s win. 58Baker ended its regular season with a 14-8 District 7-AAAA victory over Glen Oaks. A Buff running back. Jeff Alexander, scored two touchdowns. Baker Assistant Coach, Milton Broussard, said it with three words, “Pride dies hard.” This statement could not have been made if Alexander had not come across with touchdown runs of fifteen yards in the first quarter and seven yards in the last quarter. This victory gave Baker a 7-3 season, and the Buffs entered the playoffs. 59 GLEN OAKSTHE BUFFS PLUS 7 3 SEASON —• PLAYOFFS ABRAMSON After the battles of the regular season schedule, the Buffaloes received a bid to the state playoffs. The first contest was again Abramson High School, and Baker ended the game on top by a score of 35-7. I ASSUMPTION] 60DISTRICT RUNNERS-UP BI-DISTRICT CHAMPS REGIONAL CHAMPS IATE QUARTERFINALISTS The second play-off game, Baker vs. Assumption, was the next trial. At the Mustang Stadium in Napoleonville. the Baker fans cheered their team to a 7-0 victory. The Buffaloes had gained the titles of 7-AAAA District Runner-Up, Bi-District Champs, Regional Champs, and were now facing John F.hrct in the quarterfinals. This was a tremendously emotional game for both teams. Baker held the lead for most of the game, but John Ehret prevailed in the final countdown, 29-22. The 1982 football season is over, but this season was truly one to remember; our Buffaloes overcame the odds and produced a championship team. J. EHRET 61 Delta is ready when you are!

We produced a pantomime show consisting of numbers-from broadway musicals as well as contemporary tunes. Also, several speech students competed in speech tournaments throughout the state in duct acting, interpretation, one-act play, oratory, radio, and television. The spring production. The Miracle Worker, is a major undertaking, and it will require the utmost from its cast and crew. Judging from the other performances, I’m confident the show will be successful. Thank you, speech students for your work, dedication, and love. I love you.

Most of the riders had little trouble, but there were some who never could come to an understanding with their donkey. Although the students gave it their best “SHOT”, the teachers prevailed 16-8. It was rumored that the teachers had been given the tamer donkeys! Who knows!! ...

In district, the Buffs had a 3-9 record. The Buffs lost 13 games by less than 4 points. Individually, Martin Smith was named to the first team All-District team. Charles Lloyd was named to the Honorable Mention team. Martin averaged 15.2 points per game and 10.7 rebounds per game. Lloyd was the Buffs' leading scorer averaging 17.7 points per game. The remaining full-time starters were Sherman Dyer and Mitch MeGrew. STAT BOARD TEAM TOTAL POINTS = 1546 PTS. TEAM GAME AVERAGE = 57.7 OPPONENTS TOTAL POINTS = 1605 PTS. OPPONENTS GAME AVERAGE = 59.1 ALL DISTRICT - MARTIN SMITH (1ST TEAM) 99The Buffalo Basketball Team drew considerable crowds at the home games this year. Coach Langlois’ troops displayed poise and ability in the competitive, close basketball games. Even though the Buffs were not consistently victorious, the team should be proud of themselves and their accomplishments.HEAD COACH EARL LANGLOIS102J.V. BASKETBALL A WORD FROM COACH “BROU” “The team ended-up with a record of ten wins and eight losses for the season. In district play we were eight and four. The team as a group made a lot of progress during the season. I feel that with continued work several of the members can make much progress towards varsity play in the future.” Coach Broussard 103VOLLEYBALL ’82 Pictured kneeling: Jeanette Alexander.

Their district record was enough to earn second place in Bi-District 7-AAAA. The varsity team was forced into a Bi-District playoff game with Glen Oaks which they won by scores of 16-14 and 17-15. This contest featured the best performance displayed by the Lady Buffs this season. The team advanced to the District playoffs where they were defeated by Lee High and Central High. Toni Poland was selected to the All-District Team which consisted of six players. Toni was the only sophomore selected; the other students were seniors. Lori Wells was selected to the second All-District Team. The JV Lady Buffs squad finished the season with a 6-3 record which was the best JV record in their district. tosOVERALL RECORD — 13 13 DISTRICT RECORD — 6 5 VARSITY BASEBALL 106Top row: Jamie Ducote, Tommy Stanley, Daniel Westmoreland, Mitch MeGrew, Tommy Yllander, Joe Martin, Second row: Dwayne Borders, Patrick Spann, Jim Walters, Charles Wintz, Mike Gauldin, Chris Thomas, Suzanne Deviller. Third row: Danny Guidry, Mark Lacy, Tyrone Gooden, Russell White, Rochelle Prescott, and Coach Joe Moock. 107DEFENSE!! This year the Buffs had a strong pitching staff. The starting rotation consisted of Mitch McGrew, Tommy Stanley, and Daniel Westmoreland. They were supported by an excellent relieving duo which included Mike Gauldcn and Dwayne Borders. These pitchers were complimented by the best catcher in the district. Jim Walters’ work behind the plate enabled him to receive the Defensive Award. Jim’s career as a high school catcher is over, but his future looks bright in the college or professional level.DEFENSE!!Tommy Stanley and Tyrone Gooden helped Baker’s offense produce runs that won thirteen ballgames this season and finish third in our district. Tyrone's efforts this year won him the Offensive Award at the annual Spring Banquet in April. The main catalyst in the Buffaloes lineup was Tommy Stanley. His top batting average and his pitching statistics enabled him to receive the MVP Award. Next year's numerous returning juniors contribute to an excellent prospective lineup card when the Buffs again step up to the plate. 110Y. Bradford English II. Narcissc English M. Pea English P.

I've seen a great deal of change — in teachers and administrators, but especially in students. One major change I’ve really noticed is the lower levels of fitness in the students. I suppose this age of television, electronic games have much to do with this. I sincerely hope that any facts about health and fitness that I've been able to pass on to my students will someday be appreciated and used. H. Grimes Drivers Ed. H. Pale Drivers Ed. J.

After an excellent start defeating Broadmoor and East Ascension, the Baby Buffs slumped losing their next three games. They bounced back and defeated Hammond. Then the team lost to Catholic’s J.V. The Buffs appeared to lose their spark, and at half time of the Central game they trailed 12-0. At that low point in the season, the true spirit of the Buffaloes came alive. Defeat was turned into victory with the slashing runs of Richard Butler and the pin point passing of Scott Dieterich. These actions came behind the surge of an offensive line consisting of: Steve Shelton, Tommy Walters, Nick Harris, David Nobles, and Johnny Boyd. From that point on, the Baby Buffs finished in championship style by defeating Belairc and trouncing Glen 160Substituting for Mrs. O.
