Student ife tudent Life is full of diversity, originality and individuality. With over twenty clubs and organizations to choose from, ranging from art club to ski club to chess club, there is truly someting for the interests of almost everyone. Outside of school, our social lives are limited to a few select things, primarily because of our age and where we live. 1. sQL4,fQ,Af,WM S!1No ' ' Because of this, the clubs within our school strive to make up for this lack of outside activities. Throughout the year, students con- tinue to support the many clubs at OHS and, when the need arises, in- itiate new clubs to suit our needs. Student Life is one part of our school where if you set no limits, the possibili- ties are limitless. .by Eben Norfleet 9414 fZ7fd5l4fZ f ,Zhu-I gash! if WW f ZW W W'MWfM mf S, ,,t, Qwest Buc Week tradition unlimited uc Week is traditionally a time when students set No limits in demonstrating their school spirit. The en- tire week is composed of fun, frivolity and enthusiasm intended to boost school spirit and pride. The week's activities center around Friday, Satur- day and Sunday with the Buc Dance, the Oswego-Fulton football game and the Powder Puff football game. Buc Week began on Tuesday, October 6, 1987, with "Hat and Shades Day." Students came to school with various headgear and ocular paraphernalia. A yearbook poll showed that "Hat and Shades Day" was one of the most popular Buc Week days, perhaps because students can outfit themselves to look bad, wacky or just plain different. On Wednesday, the most popular event of Buc Week took place: Nerd Day. Students set no limits in dressing in outrageous, out-of-date clothes and ridiculous mismatches. Everyone's favorite nerd was perennial geek Kevin "Yosh" Sanbonmatsu. Accord- ing to Sanbonmatsu, Nerd Day, in addition to being just place fun, gave him "an opportunity to portray school spirit, which I think is lacking at OHS." Although many students did not parti- cipate in Nerd Day, it was one of the funniest and most anticipated of all Buc Week activities. Although Raider Traitor Day was not as popular as the other events of Buc Week, its signifigance was not diminished. As the rivalry in sports between Oswego and Fulton in- tensifies, Raider Traitor Day allows students to turn red for a day and become Fulton fans. Despite outward apearances, however, most students who participated in Raider Traitor Day were full-blooded Oswego fans. Blue and White day was the last school day in Buc Week. Dressing in school colors, students first attended the Pep Rally at Leighton School to cheer on our athletes. Blue and White Day symbolized the pride Oswego High students have for their school and their willingness to display it. Buc Week remained an important part of developing school pride at OHS, as students actively participated in school events. Many people heve suggested that Buc Week be expanded to include other days such as Punk Day, Pajama Day, Sport Day and Reverse Day. Whatever changes are made, it can be assured that students will set no limits in enthusiasm and Sl1pp0I't.4byDarren Crovitz Soccer player Andres LeBaudy and Cheerleader Caryn Miller kiss at the Buc Week Pep Rally. 12 Q Set No Limits ' :JI 65330 .p'3i'nt Msgs .'

The annual band camp in August was the culmination of the summer rehearsals with members rehearsing all day for a week in the scorching heat. Despite the high temperatures, Band Camp was dubbed a succes by Director William Palange. By the time school opened all that remained was to refine the music and marching routines learned during the summer in preparation for their first competition. Under the direction of Drum Major Lisa Herrald and Assistant Drum Major Kristen Wlazlo, the Marching Buccaneers blended the old with the new. The program opened with New York State of Mind from the 1982 sea- son, featuring soloist Jinri Dumas, followed by the swashbuckling sounds of Seahawk from the 1983 season. Horn soloist Andrea Parker introduced the new with John Williams' beautiful Luke and Leia. The band closed its show with another John Williams spectacular, Theme from Superman. Soloists Bill Carnal and Keith Hinrichs added the final touches to a specta- cular and exciting ending. New uniforms added the visual sparkle which complemented the music. The first show of the season took place at Cicero-North Syracuse with an intense and crowd pleasing show. In October the band took a 12 hour bus trip to West Virginia University in Morgantown, West Virginia to partici- pate in the MBA Eastern Regional Field Band Competition. Performing on Friday and Saturday nights, the band entered finals on Saturday with a second place position, and earned a third place at the end of finals. The band ended the season by competing in the New York State Field Band Con- ference Championship Show in November. They garnered a 4th place honor that placed them along with some of the best bands in America. With a successful season behind, the next challenge facing the Marching Bucs was participation in April 1988 in the Orange Blossom Festival in Orlando, Florida. Director William Palange hoped to retain the title of superior band that the band earned in 1984 when it competed in this national event.

"What!'?" you ask incredulously. Yes, to those who are not members, playing chess may seem to be a boring and elitist pastime. The Chess Club, however, is the exact opposite of such a stereotype, "meet- ings" are held at members' houses, in a party-like atmosphere. The Chess Club was concieved in 1986 by Mr. Thomas Altman, physics teacher and advisor extraordinaire. Since its humble inception, the club has grown tremendously in size. It's popularity can be attributed to its so- cial functions, held about once a month. Pizza, soda, games, plenty of chess and good conversation make these gatherings well worth the set-up effort and nominal fee. Although play- ing chess is not stressed, Mr. Altman is always eager to teach the game to new- comers.

To many members, Chess Club was more than just a place to hang out. For example, talk about such subjects as girl trouble and life contemplation seemed to be one of the club's more appreciated aspects. The Chess Club entered the 1987-88 year with high hopes and swelling ranks, including a few brave freshmen. With only a few more members, OHS could have had the largest chess club in America. Since then, however, the club has deteriorated somewhat. Parti- cipation has ebbed, due in part to in- creased cost and competing school and social events. It can only be hoped that the OHS Chess Club will regain its pop- ularity in the future, as students re- cognize its benefits and set no limits in having 3 good tlme.,by Darren Crovitz Student Life Q17 f, ag, , 5. ..,,.,, , 1,, I ?,gl ..

The reason for the increase stemmed, in part, from the fact that the Regent'sfAction Plan required students classes inthe arts and many took the path that they could most relate to: singing. These students, along with those who would like to continue on in vocal performance, make up the Symphonic-gfchrorus and the Select chorus, both under the direction of Mr. Joseph Crisafulli. Each of these groups worked hard and dilligently during the fall months in prepara- tion for their Winter Choral Concert which was held on December 19 in the Theatercfofishe Performing Arts. This concert featured the Phil- omelian Alumni of Oswego High and combined with the present groups to perform the Christmas selections of Handels, "Messiah" The groups also continued thetradition of caroling during the 'Christmas Season as they visited local nursing homes in an effort to make the season brighter for these people. The members of both choral groups also were given the oppor- tunity to participate in an exchange concert with 'vocal students from Auburn High School on May 7. In addition to the opportunities that perform students had in both of these vocal grouplsgjthere waiS,,,,ailnew group formed called "Solid-ifGlold", which focused primarily on the more pop- ular "Show Choir" style and will pre- miere at the May concert. Mr. Crisafulli hopes. that future years will provide diver- sity in the types of that par- ticipate in the program so it touches more of the community.

All of the instrumental music organizations at OHS, Wind En- semble, Symphonic Band, Concert Band, Marching Band, Jazz Band and smaller quintets and ensembles, were busy throughout the year. The Marching Band enjoyed success in the fall as the other organizations prepared for their first performances in December. The culmination of the fall practices for the Wind Ensemble, Symphonic Band and Concert Band was the Winter Concert on December 12. This was the first of many per- formances for the concert bands and was viewed by a capacity crowd in the Theater for the Performing Arts. The Wind Ensemble, under the direc- tion of Edward Lisk, traveled to the Ithaca School of Music in February to put on a demonstration performance for a music class at Ithaca. This trip was termed a success by Mr. Lisk as it "gave more exposure to not only the quality of the Wind Ensemble, but to the music program as a whole." The students who participate in the Wind Ensemble are the finest musicians in the school and the state. The Symphonic Band, under the direc- tion of Anthony Joseph, has been busy preparing for the Orange Blossom Fes- tival Competition in Orlando, Florida in April. The band is preparing num- erous selections of contemporary lit- erature to perform for the judges in Florida. The musicians in the Sym- phonic Band are all above average per- formers and it is this quality that allows the band to perform some of the more difficult modern day literature and to compete with some of the finer bands in the country.

The Concert Band, a step- ping stone into the other bands, will also be competing with the Symphonic Band, Wind Ensemble, Jazz Ensemble and Marching Band while in Florida. The band has busily been preparing a variety of musical selections for the competition as well as for other local performance such as the Spring Con- cert and the Seniors Concert. The Jazz Ensemble, under the direc- tion of Anthony Joseph, again traveled to the Civic Center in Syracuse to com- pete in the local Jazz Festival for the second year. The band competed against some of the best Jazz Bands in the state as they tried to defend their lst place finsih of the previous year. The band has also been preparing everything from ballads to big band tunes in preparation for the competi- tion in Florida as well as for their big concert on Memorial Day Weekend.

Four enter All-State competition n November 29, four Oswego High School Wind Ensemble members traveled to the 1987 All-State Music Conference sponsored by the New York State School Music Conference CNYSSMAJ. The four students who were selected were Keith Hinrichs, Kirsten Stewart, Jim Dumas and Andrea Parker.These four students, who are Seniors at OHS, competed last spring against 4000 other students and were four out of the 845 chosen. Keith Hinrichs, Trumpet, was selec- ted to participate in the All-State Sym- phonic Band by acheiving a 99 on his audition. He began taking music lessons while attending Minetto El- ementary School. He now participates actively in the music program in such organizations as the Mraching Bucca- neers, Jazz Ensemble and Brass Quintet. Kirsten Stewart, Oboe, also earned a spot in the All-State Sym- phonic Band by also acheiving a 99 on her audition. She began her musical career at Leighton Elementary.

Jim Dumas, Trumpet, was selec- ted to the All-State Orcehstra after re- ceiving a perfect score on his audition. He began his instrumental music lessons while at Minetto. Jim has been extremely active in all musical ac- tivities at OHS including the Marching Band, Jazz Ensemble and Brass Quintet. He also has been a member of the Syracuse Symphony Youth Or- chestra which has given him numerous musical opportunities. Andrea Parker, French Horn, also received a perfect score at the NYSSMA auditions which consequently put her in the All- State Orchestra as well. Andrea began her musical instruction while at Kingsford Park and has continued strongly through high school by her participa- tion in the Marching Band, Symphonic Band, Concert Band and Horn Choir. In addition she has participated in the Syracuse Symphony Youth Orchestra.

These skis are similar to those used by ahtletes training for Olympic competi- tion. Mr. Sherman, the club's advisor, was quite happy with the turnout at the skiing events and he hopes that the club will continue to grow now that students find out about how much fun they have. The club is now made up of approximately 20-25 students. The club skied in local areas includ- ing Selkirk Shores and the trails be- hind the Middle School.

All of these tales paled, how- ever, when stacked up against the race for OHS Morp king. The candidates, Nirmit Goel, Bob "Slime" Gilmore, Darren Crovitz, Darren Narayan, Eben Norfleet, Greg Angelina, Eric Rosenberg and Jeff Lints, received their nominations as the result of a poll by the Student Council. The top eight vote getters were placed on the ballot for election. Once the candidates became known publicly, an intense election campaign was under way for Morp king candi- date, Nirmit Goel. For a three week period prior to the Morp, Nirmitmania swept the school. The "Rice For Alli' campaign was born. Chris Nelson, Tony Leotta and Joe Prisco were men, figuratively speak- ing, with a mission: the election of King Nirmit I. Posters with the catch phrase, "rice for all" were the primary means used to achieve the desired elec- tion. With the aid of the Mclntoshllr computers in B-3 and Leottais Canon Typestar 6 thermal printing typewri- ter, creative posters appeared throug- hout the building, seemingly by magic. The people who knew Nirmit found All. the exploits of the "Rice For All" camp- aigners to be funny. By combining the message that Nirmit should be elected Morp king with a little humor, the pun- sters tried to win the kingship for their candidate. On the evening of the Morp, tragedy struck. A freak snow storm dampened the festive atmosphere of the Morp, but a large number of students still attended. Ballots were cast, but it was not to be for Nirmit. Slime won with 99 votes to Nirmit's 95 votes. When it came time for the announce- ment of the winner, Joe Prisco tried to get the crowd's attention. All can- didates were called to the front of Powers Gym, but alas, the unruly dance goers did not pay attention, and the lone cadidate to step forward was Darren Crovitz. Through default, third place Darren Crovitz was crowned Morp king 1988. CTake heed, those of you who seek higher office but do not wish to campaign for it.D In all probability, never again will such a freak occurence happen. Crovitz was as happy as if he knew what was occurring when he was awarded his Burger King crown, his royal plunger! sceptre and a pineapple - which he pre- sently devoured, thus ending this tale of political intrigue, ineptitude, well- intended friends and "rice for a1l.".Qby Tony Leotta 66 earn scholarships embers ofthe Class of 1988 knew no limits in garner- ing numerous Regents Scholarships, winning a total of 62 Regents Scholarsips, two Empire Scholarships and two Nursing Scholarships.

Sfudrfnf Lllfb Q JH Box ealizing that the best way to improve one's skills and to develop one's talent is prac- tice, many OHS Lacrosse players participate in Box Lacrosse leagues. Box Lacrosse helped many Lacrosse players fine tune their pas- sing and catching skills while others improved on their overall game aware- ness and formed a good sportmanship attitude. In anticipation of the spring sports season, Box Lacrosse helped create a positive attitude for success when interscholastic field play began. Box Lacrosse, played on the bare floor of a hockey rink, is a faster paced, scaled down version of field Lacrosse. Six players, compared to ten players in field Lacrosse, often use a basic pass and pick away offense and a man to man or zone defense. All players are allowed to roam the entire length of the rink, with even the goalie joining the offense. Penalties are the same as in field Lacrosse with the addition that checking into the boards of the hockey rink is not permitted. Although field Lacrosse can be a lightning fast game with numerous goals scored in seconds, Box Lacrosse is an overall fast paced game. Players must always be alert and never stop running. During the summer of 1987, Oswego High students formed two Lacrosse teams which played in the Fulton Box Lacrosse League. One team, consisting of varsity players and exceptional younger players, enterd the toughest men's division, division one. Playing Lacrosse builds skills against teams from Oswego State, the Fulton varsity program and several or- ganized Lacrosse clubs such as The Os- wego Lacrosse Club, the division one team learned much, but had a hard time with the pace of the game as seen in only one win. OsWego's second Lacrosse team in men's division two faired much better. Climbing to the top of their division, the second team had a final record of 9 wins and 3 losses. The division two team made it through the playoffs to the championship game, but un- fortunately lost. In January and February, a team of Oswego Lacrosse players joined a league at the Fairmount Athletic Cen- ter. Unlike the Fulton league, Fair- mount's hockey rink had astroturf carpet which made the game feel a bit more like field Lacrosse. Another sim- ilar aspect to field Lacrosse was that the other teams were from various Central New York high schools, which included New York State Class A champion, West Genesee. Once again, Oswego did not fare well in competition, failing to win any games. Due to the distance to Fair- mount which meant a time consuming drive, it was difficult to get a good size team to come play on any given day. With six players in the rink at a time, a situation of having only one or two sub- stitutes led to fatigue and an inability to carry an effective transition game between offense and defense. However, the purpose of getting Hoop for the amateur hoopster or those athletes who enjoy hoop but are unable to make the high school teams either because of their skill level or because of conflicts of time, the city Re- creation Department's basketball leagues provided a means to play the game in an organized, competitive set- ting. The season was filled with ups and downs, and all of the excitement and rivalries that any basketball dev- otee could have hoped for. Colonial Rigging avenged its one point loss in the championship game last year by composing a talented squad that single-handedly won this year's championship. Jerry Dennie's All-State Insurance, the only team to sea- the but sea- beat Colonial during the regular son, not only placed second in tournament championship game, also placed second in the regular 30 Q Set no Limits son standings following their loss to Colonial. This season saw a dominating team in Colonial Rigging that featured a re- lentless pressure defense. They were only downed once and never looked back after that defeat. Powered by cen- ter Steve Martus and forward Mike Rodgers they thrashed smaller teams time and time again. Also under the direction of virtually all the players on the squad, Sport About found themse- lves to be the Cinderella team by knocking out defending champ County Savings in the first round, although falling short of eliminating heavily favored Colonial Rigging. Tim Hibbert's Hoopsters improved greatly with the acquisitions of center Gary Budd and shooting guard John Murray. Overall they were led by star Ccontinued p.31D G' Z everyone's minds on Lacrosse was reached. Nick Canale did a wonderful job in net and George Sechler and Dan Connelly did an exceptional job at the offensive end of the rink.

Another team that improved was The Ritz. Despite a season that only in- cluded one win the additions of Randy Dorval, Shawn Keil, and Scott Man- waring made the team competitive against other rivals. The team that faced serious trouble was Fred's News, led by Andy Roskind, Tim Hanley, Jim Rebeor, and Rob Man- waring. Jim Rebeor assumed control and did much of the ball handling, but he did not get any help. Suprisingly, de- spite a season that had some dis- appointing moments coach Chip Gerber was voted coachfplayer of the year. Led by Bob Garafolo and Frank Hegarty, Dements saw daylight in beating several teams and found its way to the "final four." The team worked better than any other and played an intact game on both ends of the floor. Steve Hart's County Savings won several games with a powerful offense, but faced a shocking defeat at Winterfest fun for he Winterfest, held March 11 and 12 saw Oswego's prom- inent athletes join forces with everyday students and tea- chers in a spectacular bonanza of athletic events. Sponsored by the Stu- dent Council, the 1988 Winterfest offered competition in Volleyball, Basketball and Soccer. Every year, the Winterfest is an event which is anticipated by everyone who wishes to participate. Once again, Mr. Mirabito was mobbed the day team rosters became available. Many quality teams were formed, as well as some totally pathetic teams, but since athletic ability wasn't required of anyone, those whojoined in the Winter- fest games wanted to have a good time and did so.

Start- ing at 10:45, eight teams with original names like The Fuddruckers, The Dalmating Salamanders and In Your Face each had two games with those sporting the best records moving on to the playoffs. Slimer's had a tough time holding out against Three Sets etc., a Dan Clark creation, but Slimer's showed its stuff and was the dominant Volleyball force. Basketball action saw the High- -4 3? lights defeating The Revolution for the f championship. In the consolation game, Trevor Crovitz's and Brad Shannon's The Rebels beat The Snarfers. The Highlights was an awe- some spectacle of basketball talent. Varsity point guards Bob Gilmore and Angel Lagoe with the likes of Jahan Islami, Steve Martus, Mike Rodgers, Rusty Saucer and Tammy Carr were too much for any other team. Dominat- ing the inside, while lighting up the three point line, the best team came through with the wins. Soccer action was dominated by Top Gun. Feckster's Fools challenged Top Gun, but superstar varsity players An- dreas Lebaudy, Megan Hastings and Kristina Lenehan with their fellow cohorts were unbeatable. In fast paced action, Top Gun soared through its first game and then won the champion- ship, 3-1. Megan Hastings summed up the team's experience, "Everyone used their potential. We all got along together and we had fun as we played." The Winterfest will always be pop- ular and because of this popularity, it will continue to be annual event. It's not often students and teachers can get together and have fun in sports together which is the beauty of the Winterfest. Probably one of the best events held at OHS, the Winterfest is a time for fl1l'l.Qby Tony Leotta Student Life 4 31 A license to drive and to be free n Social Studies we learn that many societies have rites of pas- sage. Teen age members of socie- ties go through these rites as part of the ritual of becoming an adult. Although we have no formal ritual in our society, there is a point in life when we begin to have and enjoy the free- dom and responsibility of being an adult: a person turns sixteen and no longer needs to walk or ride a bike, but can instead get a driver's license, a sign of maturity which tells the world to watch out - because here you come. Getting a learner7s permit is the first hurdle in actually' learning to drive. First you have to get your permit by taking a written multiple choice test, followed by the road test and finally, you have your picture taken. The multiple choice permit test has to be the easiest step of getting your license. Anyone with a basic know- ledge of the factors with which drivers must contend will pass. All of the ques- tions are straight forward and based on facts from the Motor Vehicle Dep- artment's driving manual. The road test is difficult for some people, not because they don't know how to drive because that comes with practice, but because they get anxious about having a stranger waiting for them to do something wrong. However, if one keeps his cool and relaxes, the testing portions become rather simple in nature. The last step for getting the license is having your picture taken. lt is a bad idea to take friends along when the pic- ture is to be taken. They'll probably make you laugh and you'll get some sort of a weird picture for the next four years or until you have your picture re- taken for your night license. When the picture is taken, you have to stand with your feet on two footprints on the floor. Failure to do so will lead to a picture of half a person's face. The Motor Vehicle Department will use these pictures, a cause of embarassment for most people, although it sure is funny. The worst part of the process is the cost - 9,817.50! However, it is the price you have to pay to be allowed to drive. You really do have more freedom when you have access to a car. You can Jennifer Powers gets her license. come and go as you wish Cwithin reasonb, as well asjust plain being able to go where you want Cagain, within reasonj. The freedom brings with it re- sponsibility. Everyone has to be car- eful. Most parents would become very upset if their child was involved in a car accident. Plus, the insurance costs go to the sky after an accident. Many senior boys did ruin their cars in ac- cidents last year which does say something about the need to be car- eful. Driving is a learning experience and is something most OHS students will go through. It's a moment to enjoy.

Good times at the movies with your friends orget baseball! In Oswego, the number one favorite past-time of kids has to be watching movies. Certainly, there were some good movies out last year and here kids have time on their hands to see them all. Whether you went to the Cinema or invited friends over to your house to Watch movies on the VCR, movies made for a good time. Many people have pleasant memories, whether they're from the movie itself or from the friends you had along with you. With all the movies that come out every year, everyone always has lots of choices for a favorite movie. Different people look for different things in movies and some nominations for best movie included: Spaceballs, Fatal Attraction, The Untoilchables, Dirty Dancing, The Living Daylights, and The Running Man. Spaceballs was one 32 4 Set no Limits yuk after another at the comedy ex- treme. The array of dramafromance movies created suspense one moment and provided beautiful love scenes the next. The Running Man thrilled anyone who enjoyed gore. Finally, The Living Daylights was a James Bond movie that had that famous Bond mys- tique to it. Of course, for every good movie there was a bad movie. Fitting the bill was "The Big Easy" which was at the Cinema in October. Whenever you go to the movies, you take a chance paying 34.00 because you really can't tell if you'll like a movie until you see it. No matter what people say, and never mind Siskel and Ebert, this fact always holds true. The only way you can be assured of getting your money's worth is by going to a "G" rated movie. How- ever, "Snow White" doesn't come around often and "R" rated movies are probably the most popular anyway. Fortunately, any movie can be made fun with friends. No matter how good a movie is, it will be so much better if friends watch it with you. Even if the movie is awful, if everyone buys Twizzlers before it starts, even the worst movie looks g'00d.Qby Tony Leotta Planes, Trains and Automobiles arrived in Os- wego - right on time lass rings add meaning to school experience ur high school years. Sup- posedly the best years of our lives, right? Most students desire to have something to ymbolize these years, their memories nd their proud moments. The class ing has been a tradition for high chool and college students, and the urchase of them continues today. The loveliest and most endearing emories of high school are enveloped 'iii the certain quaint charm of class rings. Sentimental value, the true gem within class rings, creates a special warmth of glad memories. Stored within the beauty of these rings, our high school memories will never lose their luster or fade away. Class rings unify the members of specific graduat- ing classes as well as all students who attended the same high school - a un- ique community is formed.

Friends, special hap- penings and the school itself can pos- sibly slip from our memories as we come in contact with new places and people. It's a fact that it's difficult to remember everything. Life is dynamic which really leaves us little time to think about the past. The class ring has engraved in it many things. In the 1960's, all rings were the same. Now, there are many designs to choose from. The typical ring has the year of graduation and the school mascot. The more elaborate and modern ring lets you have your first name, year of graduation and a symbol of your favorite activity. Gold and silver rings cost a few hundred dollars while trillium rings cost less than 25100. Always in style, everyone with a class ring is "cool", They're fun to have because you cement your position as part of the group. You can even show off your class ring.

Stu- dent life was also the adven- tures we had within our community. Even though Oswego had a limited amount of places youths could go to legally, we all found ways and places to have fun. Isn't it a good feel- ing when you think of the times you had last How often did we live some rather crazy situations? When we look back at the past year, we just have to laugh at the fun things we did and re- member the good times. First off, some of the most pleasant times we had were A scene from the Oswego landscape. experiences we normally might overlook. Dining within the city of Oswego often led to fun with good food. Whether at Canaleis, the new Arbys, or at Pizza Hut, the times that went along with culinary ex- periences were something to remember. Cana1e's, Vona's, The Oaptain's Lounge, and The 1850 House offered the fi- nest food in extravagant settings. There was always a place to take someone for dining as a cultured experi- ence. Because most people don't eat at fine restau- rants on a regular basis, these trips were always fun and interesting. Whether on a date orjust for the sake of eating out, everyone liked to sample a good time in a great atmosphere. On the opposite end of the scale, McDonald's, Burger King, Wendy's and Arby's provided a treat that was affordable for most. Arby's, a new-comer to Oswego, offered a new option to the port city's fast food menu, roast beef. With horseradish sauce in abundance, anyone looking for a quick and easy meal could find one. There's only one question which lingers at fast-food restaraunts. Why do McDonalds' french fries cost 95g2 while a hamburger is only 5567 With current Ccontinued, p.35JuiF Ccontinued from p.34J agri- cultural prices, it appears that a "Where's the beef?" Search is in order here. Worth mentioning is that V fw,,' Lake Ontario viewed from the Fort. pizza is fast becoming a staple in American society and this was certainly true in Oswego. Pizza Hut was a main attraction within cul- tural circles of the young in Oswego. With the availability of coupons found in local newspapers and constant specials, pizza could be bought at low prices, in addi- tion to burgers. There was nothing like going out with your friends and ending up talking with them for a while in Pizza Hut. Pizza Hut was almost the center of society last year for some people. It was great when thirty lacrosse players Cor any other group of peoplel had a contest to see how much pizza each person could eat. It was also great fun just seeing your friends enjoying themselves and laughing. As a final note about din- ing out, being the tradition- alist that I am, I strongly feel the guys should pay for the girls who accompany them. I realize that prices at fancy restaraunts are steep, but the guy should be able to af- ford pizza. I do understand that some girls hate it when the guy pays for them, but girls shouldn't have to worry about whether the guy will be cheap. Some of us like to follow tradition. Other intriguing things to do around Oswego were oftenquite strange, or at least just not things you would normally do every- day. Scavenger hunts were interesting and very pop- ular. Hiking up to the Fort at night was also something of a risky thing to do, but was sure fun. Students did find unique ways to spend their time. Scavenger hunts are con- tests to see who can get the most items on a list, each item having a point value. Organized by various dev- ious minded students, the hunts were held at night with teams competing. The only thing you really nee- ded in order to be in one of bigger than size 38, a mailbox and Arby's horse- radish sauce were examples of common items. While racing around the city, you have the greatest time of your life because you only have one hour to get all you can and then get back to the meeting place. At the gathering ground, all your items are added up with the winner being the team with the most points. The only real prize was the right to brag about your ac- complishment. I know Dave Shepard and I are never going back to Sigma Gama to get an empty CI emphasize emptyj beer keg. Being an item with a high point value, I ended up leaving a 51510 dep- osit with a drunk.

Another fun activity was walking along the train tracks at the Fort by the lake at 11:30 at night. It sounds Arby's: the newcomer. weird and all, but it's fun and relaxing as you listen to the lake. Anyone who can relate to quiet moments can see the value of this. You cut through the cemetery and there you were! This is also quite scary if you go out there around Halloween. The only real disadvantage to being out there was that it is a violation to be trespas- sing on the train tracks. It wasn't funny when someone said the police were coming. It was a real hassle trying to run along those tracks at night. Obviously, railroad tracks aren't designed for that purpose. You trip and stumble over everything. Everyone tries to be quiet, but you still sound like a herd of elephants because there's lots of rocks and debri out there. However, once in your life you should do something daring. Student life can sure en- compass lots ofdifferent situ- ations. Many of our lives re- volve around school, but we have fun other times too. Hopefully, the students of OHS will continue the tradi- tion and live it up because you're only young once.Qby Tony Leotta StzLden1Lijb 4 35 - Paradox staff Sets Exodus inspires editor Divinely inspired by Divine Right adviser he Lord said to Mr. Myles, "See, I have chosen Christopher, son of Paul, of the tribe of Nelson, and I have filled him with a divine spirit of skill and un- derstanding and knowledge in every craft: in the production of embroidery, in making things of gold and silver or bronze, in carving wood, and in every craft, includ- ing the production of the 1988 Paradox!

From flowers to raffles to personals, many clubs, groups or classes sold whatever they felt the student body would buy. Sales work for the fund raising organization and give the students of OHS something to look for- ward to every year. Flower sales during Buc Week, Christmas, St. Valentine's Day and St. Patrick's Day, gave everyone the chance to say "Hi!" to a friend. For the romantics, flowers made a gift to bring tears to the eyes of their loved ones. The Buccanear Bulletin carnation sale during Buc Week sold over 800 flowers at a price of 31.00 each. Or- ganized by Julie Zaryski as her Jour- nalism semester project, the entire newspaper staff was called into action to deal with what turned out to be a monstrous undertaking. However, the task of getting the flowers to the students was accomplished and many smiling faces floated about the cor- ridors of OHS that day. Raffles, like the Senior Class sterio raffle helped raise funds to reduce the individual's cost of the Senior Trip. The Baseball team raffled a stereo to help pay for a new batting cage. The Football team had a 50-50 raffle to raise money for their end of the season banquet. According to Offensive Gaurd John DeSantis, "If it wasn't for our raffle, we could never have afforded to even consider a banquet." The band went all out in its effort to raise money for its Spring trip to Florida. The band parents raffled off a 36,000 Dodge Omni. With every student in the instrumental music program el- igible to go on the trip, band people scampered to think up creative things to sell. Crates of citrus fruit, from 38.00 to 325.00, were sold by Marching Bucs. 36.00 Hormel pepperonis were special treats for people who contributed to the cause of helping our beloved band people reach Florida. As a personal aside, I bought one of the 36.00 pepper- onis and boy, it was good! As long as the messages weren't vulgar or crude, personals were prin- ted in the Valentine's Day Buccaneafr Bulletin. With gossip raging, hidden secrets became common knowledge. Few were immune from the messages with over 430 personals sold at 31.00 each. While letting the students of OHS say what was on their minds,everyone had a fun loving Valentine's Day. Also worth mentioning were the al- ways popular Gummi Bears. The Ger- man Club held exclusive rights to Gummi Bear sales. Led by Frau Bur- khardt and German Club President Vikki Hutchison, the rest of the German Club sold these candies imported from Germany at an incredible rate. The Gummi Bears were sold to raise money for an upcoming trip to Germany. The FM Hornet pin, was an item sold to promote school spirit while still mak- ing a profit.

There has been a soda machine in the teacher's lounge for years, but few students had access to this machine. The time finally came and the student soda machine arrived. The Student Council, mainly through the efforts of Chris Nelson, Jahan Islami, and Mr. Mirabito arran- ged for a Coca-Cola soda machine to be placed in service at OHS on February 11. The Student Council hoped to use profits from the soda machine for its treasury and to fund a scholarship. Both Coke and Pepsi were app- roached and similar contracts were ob- 32! A Set no Limits tained, however Pepsi later upped its prices. It was decided that a Coca-Cola machine would be used as a trial, to find out how much of a profit would be made. Cans of soda at 5095 would make up for the original cost of a case of soda and maintenace to the machine. As well, returned cans would provide the Student Council with an additional 3a per can. If all proves to go well, a second Coke machine will be installed to comple- ment the one in operation. If Pepsi would lower its price to a competitive level, a Pepsi machine might be in- stalled, creating a competitive atmos- phere with Coke. Mr. Maxon was incredibly helpful in dealing with the soda companies and encouraged the Student Council. Mr. Maxon's help, is the reason the soda machines and the soda itself were ob- tained at low prices. Although soda will only be sold start- ing at 2:30 until midnight because of a NY law forbidding the sale of "junk" food during school hours, there is still plenty of time after school for students to enjoy the sodajby Tony Leotta Students vent food feelings like it. It's really good food. I don't know where else I could find a better lunch time bargain at than at OHS's cafeteria." a demented Darren Narayan admits. Oswego High School's cafeteria is a fantastic wonderland of new creations and golden oldies. Although the cafet- eria certainly has its problems, there are positive aspects, albeit often buried under old Buc Burgers. Some people think highly of our cafeteria, and rightly so, because it really is OK, all things considered. However, it's easy to point out the bad things as well. For lunch, it could be said that the cafeteria is a fine place, but let's all be thankful we donlt have to eat all our meals there. It's true that some of the hot lunches are good, and the prices are good to match, unless you want ex- tras. The salad bar is fine, with an economical price and the snack bar has a few good items CHoHosJ. However, it should be made clear that Snack Bar prices are killers. Student comments regarding the cafeteria covered a wide range of op- inion and comparison. Julie Carpenter shared her thoughts about fried clams, "They taste like rubber so I won't eat them. I'd just as soon put together a Sports spread for the yearbook." Ac- cording to Becky Luber and Michelle Boak, "Some of that stuff in the cafet- eria is weird. It scares us. We like the chocolate pudding, though." Jennifer Patterson had some creative thoughts, "Why do you want to know, Tony? The yearbook, oh my God! It's okay I guess. I like apples. You're not going to use that are you? No way!" Tin Wanek took a strong line when dealing with school lunches, "I'd rather eat another Carnation."

The dullness and lack of diversity that society would suc- cumb to could represent the fall of man as a creature able to determine his own fate. It would be man's supreme fail- ure, the reversal of all he has ever sought. All because no one took the time, made the effort, to learn. Can't people see that they must grasp what could be theirs before it gets away? So easily it could be, but then it's gone. There would be no more great works of literature, the arts would fade away and no one would know why. The chance to participate in learned organizations where indivi- duals could challenge themselves men- tally, such as Math Club or culturally, as in the Language Clubs would no longer exist.

Access to a better equipped micro compu- ter lab was the most noticeable improvement in computer instruction for students. The micro computer lab expanded to accomodate new Apple IIEQ9 and Macintosh? computers. Students were able to sign up to work on computer related class assignments orjust to have fun while discovering the computer's capabilities. Along with the micro-computer lab, the new OHS Career Center in the library used computers to present various computer programs concerning career pos- sibilities and college previews on laser disks. Besides individual opportunities, courses such as Com- puter Basic and Computer Pascal provided a set curriculum where students could learn not only what computers can do, but also why they do it. Various courses, including Year- book, Journalism, Computer Aided Design, Dataprocessing, Wordprocessing, Business Mathematics and Communica- tion Systems all required the use of computers. Computers played an integral part in the make up of these courses, since the students used computers as the means to complete their work. In addition, many courses, including the science courses, Health and even Physical Education used computer programs to supplement their instructional materials and provide students with the opportunity to interact with the computer. The OHS Science department stood out for using com- puters as a teaching aid. The Physics classes devised many new ways of using computers in class because a vast assort- ment of computer programs, which included game pro- grams, provided instruction related to course topics.

Now with the aid of the computer, the students can measure more rapidly and precisely than ever before. Their results agree so well with theory, we don't have to make excuses for them any longer." Ultimately, the more time OHS students spent working with computers, the greater the benefit they obtained for themselves as courses at OHS became increasingly tech- nological, a development which coincided with computers becoming a commonplace fixture within society.

Each was to sign the contract which obligated a senior who may have con- sumed alcohol to call home for a ride and obligated his parents to pick him up, no questions asked. They also made posters to put up around the school and the community concerning the dan- gers of drinking and driving. S.A.D.D. members conducted an assembly for OHS students with a guest speaker who discussed her daughter's death due to a DWI accident. Other plans were to repeat the par- ent-teacher driving committee for Prom night, to become involved in projects with other schools, and to have a White-Face Day which would represent the total amount of DWI related deaths and what it would be like if a friend was dead. The club also helped in the organization of a junior chapter at Oswego Middle School. With Mr. Swanson as the advisor, this year's 50 member S.A.D.D. chapter was the biggest and the most enthusiastic group to date.

Prac- tically every student, depending on college choice, is required to take the six section, three hour exam, making it perhaps the most feared test given in high school. Lately, however, the test has come under fire for several rea- sons. For one, it is said that the test does not show academic promise in a student. One may obtain a score of 1550 Cout of a maximum possible 1600J on the SAT while holding an average in school that is just passing because of a lack of self-discipline. Likewise, the diligent worker who is not necessarily a "genius" could very well end up with a low score. For another, there are edu- cators who feel that the test is racially, sexually, and even regionally biased. The basis for this accusation is that the verbal section contains some words which betray a bias toward students from middle and upper class homes. To capture what O.H.S. students felt about the SAT, 60 seniors were sur- veyed prior to the November admini- stration. The results showed that the students felt that as long as the exam was given it would be important to them. However, if students could change the test in any way, they would try. At the time of the poll, most of the seniors had previouly written the exam at least once or twice. When asked how long they spent preparing for the SAT, the most common re- sponses were either not at all, one week, or one month. At the extreme, 8'Zn of the students answered three months, 7 'Za one day, and one hesitant student admitted to studying for a S.A.D.D.

After learning about the possible bias of the SAT, roughly half of those surveyed still felt that it was a fair measure of one's intelligence. The remaining half was either sure that the SAT was an unfair test of academic ability or they had no opinion. Stu- dents came down harder on it when more than half placed the SAT in the biased catagory. Whatever support students had for the exam disappeared when they were asked whether or not they would support a measure to estab- lish the SAT as a requirement for grad- uation.

When they were asked to identify which political party Ronald Reagan belonged to, a hefty 93W responded with Republican, the correct answer. Unfortunately, O.H.S. students' grades in politics went downhill from there. It was obvious that most students did not seem interested injoining or affiliating themselves with a political party while attending school. Out of those who did acknowledge themselves in association with a party, Re- publicans outnumbered Democrats by nearly two to one. This reflected the general trend of upstate New Yorkers to identify with the GOP. In early fall, Presidential candidates were entering and dropping out of the race faster than people could keep track. A poll proved that students here at O.H.S. were just as lost as the rest of the nation concerning the revolving door can- didacies. When asked to select candidates for President and Vice-President in 1988, aside from the most popular re- sponse of "Who is running?", people chose George Bush , Jesse Jackson, Gary Hart, Jack Kemp , Mario Cuomo, Oliver North, and the ever popular Alf. For the influential office of Vice-President, O.H.S. students selected many of the same people, this time, however, Oliver North came first, followed by Jesse Jackson, Walter Mondale, and Traci Buske. These were just a few of the choices, not far down the list were Michael Jackson and Gumby. As the poll showed, OHS stu- dents would put just about anyone up for the office. Closer to home there was a more exciting election taking place. The Mayoral race of the city of Oswego was empha- sized by students throughout the school in the weeks before the November 3 election. Early on, there was a clear cut ma- jority in the students' minds for Mike Canale. But as the campaign dragged on, unscientific polls taken by the Palla- dium Times, indicated that John Sullivan and Ralph Paul- dine were the frontrunners. At the school, posters for the mayoral candidates suddenly appeared in the library, on walls, and even on cars. Among the slogans that people wore were Bill Shannon's, "I like Spike," which was quite pop- ular. However, the candidates did more than to just send their advertisements around the school. They held a 'fpublic forum" in the Theatre of the Performing Arts in mid-Oc- tober. Included in the program were John Sullivan, Ralph Pauldine, and Bill Shannon. Since it provided students with a notion of what each individual candidate stood for, both English and Social Studies classes were invited to attend. Unfortunately, the morning was not on the pacific side. When two of the candidates became involved in an argu- ment which stifled the progress and intent of the forum, it did indeed seem that the debate was more like a stage per- formance. On the whole, students enjoyed the mounting ex- citement of the forum along with the other elements of the election. As a concluding activity, students participated in a mock election. As a foreshadowing of events to come, John Sullivan won the student vote, followed by Canale, Pauldine and Shannon. On the night of November 3, 1987, all stress was put to rest when John Sullivan was declared the winner of the election and the next Mayor of the City of Oswegojby Dwayne Narayan. -'1.z12Si.s1z1s:1 ---..t -- . lrzziiigzgeififff 1' -- 'it ' --'--i Mayoral candidates Ralph Pauldine, Bill Shannon, and John Sullivan debate before O.H.S. students.

One of the major diffi- culties facing Student Council at the beginning of the year was the need to de- cide on where their efforts should be directed. Tradi- tionally, the Student Coun- cil organizes the Winterfest and the Morp, and under- takes various projects. As part of a continuing ef- fort, Student Council at- tempted to acquire a soda machine for student use. Past leg work provided the basic information needed to acquire a soda machine, but the Student Council had to obtain administrative per- mission. Profits from soda sales were expected to be used to establish a college scholarship for a student who has performed out- standingly within the Stu- dent Council. The newest issue brought up for discussion was a pro- posed crack down on smok- ing at OHS. This idea con- sisted of a planned ban on smoking, or at least a fur- ther restriction of areas where smoking is permit- ted. This stemmed from complaints of both students and teachers who disliked being -subjected to second- hand smoke from cigar- ettes, especially at the Liberty Street bus loading dock, where many students and teachers entered the building. The Student Council re- mained open to the opinions of all students who wished to present new issues for indicated by the enormous support C85'ZnD for a female presidential candidate. The final question read, "...with more and more in- dustry moving to the West, would you support a mea- sure to move the nation's capital to the west coast, namely California?" In re- sponse to the question, 90'Zn of those asked were opposed to the idea. Reasons for this opposition were that it would cost too much money, that it would be too far away, and that the North- east was and always should be the capital of this nation. What this portends for the future is difficult to tell. Perhaps we would all do well to remember the early 20th. century American philosopherfwriter H. L. Mencken who once wrote that the campus radical would become the future R0tarlan.,by Dwayne Narayan problems discussion. Although many students may have found it difficult to present ideas to their representatives, all students were encouraged to share their opinions. Its reorganization only one year distant, the Student Council grew within itself, as well as with the student body and with the admini- stration, to be an effective part of Oswego High School. ,by Tony Leotta Following are the ques- tions asked and re- sponses given in a ran- dom poll of 75 students conducted by the Para- dox in October 1987. 1.

In this way, publication al- ways occurred when expected.. The staff and advisers were especially proud of the single award received at the annual Empire State School Press Association awards dinner in the category of best service to the school. On average, 40 budding journalists devoted themselves each semester to making the year's newspapers some of the best ever. The majority of students worked hard to write the excellent stories we all enjoyed. The students along with Mr. Noyes and Mr. McCrobie brought truth and integrity to all of the articles, serious, interesting or humorous, for the enjoyment of everyone. The variety of articles written by thejournalism students was the most outstanding aspect that set The Buccaneer Bulletin apart from previous years. After glancing through the paper, the reader was presented an array of wonderful material. News, Features, Clublicity, Sports, Editorials and the ever popular Columns left everyone on the edge of his seat in eager anticipation of the next issue.

The question, then: "What did academicscome to?" The answer: Calculators!! A new wave of high tech calculators emerged in full glory last year. Although these workers of mathemati- cal Wonders really appeared and be- came popular two years ago, they be- came common last year. The utility these calculators offer was incredible. The man behind the outbreak of cal- culator mania was Nirmit Goel. Nirmit's calculator first appeared dur- ing the 1986-87 school year and Nirmit considered it to be one of his most prized possessions. Nirmit felt that these machines help to conserve pre- cious study time by allowing a user to access easily vast quantities of inform- ation at the touch of a button. Nirmit was forced to live the life of a hounded man because everyone wan- ted to play with THE CALCULATOR. Nirmit Goel proudly displays the one, the only, THE CALCULATOR! - Nirmit's senior year was spent filling out college applications and trying to stop people from bending the back of the calculator in two. This hideous act supposedly hurt the wires. The benefits of these calculators far outweighed any disadvantage from not memorizing mathematical form- ulae since most of the work calculators perform is busy work. Instead of losing time figuring out cosines of angles or logs, a good calculator can easily and speedily compute whatever informa- tion is needed. Any good math student should already understand the con- cepts involved in any mathematical problem. Sam Mele said that she would die without a calculator." Many teachers of advanced Math at OHS encouraged the use of calculators at least part time, and some Math teachers required calcu- lators for use in class and homework. In addition to carrying out basic mathematical functions, calculators were programmable with a certain amount of memory built in, and the op- erator could input anything that would fit. If the calculator lacked a key for a Bob Gilmore and Kevin Sanbonmatsu calculate. function, the operator could use the programmable space to input anything needed. Academics know no limits!! If there are any limits, the students at OHS are sure going to find a way to overcome them. Oswego students are forever going to figure out how to get their work done.

Pulse quicken- ing, breath running short, you almost die in anxious anticipation. It's time to take a test. Whenever you take a test, there's an atmosphere of doom and gloom orig- inating from the fact that tests show failure, rather than achievement. Sup- posedly, a test either proves or dis- proves how much you know. This is true, but only to an extent. The problem with tests is the amount of time a student must put into prepar- ation. At OHS, if not in society, people are encouraged and expected tojoin as many activities as they possibly can. "Balance your time," is the popular A8 4 Know no Ijmits fear in the heart of the brave phrase." Sometimes time just won't stand still long enough. Play a sport, work on The Paradox, practice your instrument, take advan- ced courses, join a few clubs, and get your homework done. Just try to do your work at a level which will give yor an A average. Academics will not mesh completely with all other time con- sumers, so its no wonder some people don't have time to prove what they can do. Tests may indicate the educational level a person is at, but outside factors limit the accuracy of grades. Those students who have achieved 98 aver- ages deserve recognition for they are truly outstanding students.

What fol- lows is some insight to aid the under- class students of OHS in finding a col- lege. Many students are going to have to live through what we, as seniors, have already survived. As it happened to us, students who are about to delve into the mire of hurdles that colleges have erected will find that this task is no easy matter with which to deal. The SAT, ACT, College Board Achie- First, I started gathering informa- tion to find out about colleges by sen- ding those School Guide postcard cards you can get in the Guidance Ofice to every school in which I had even the most remote interest. Truly ambitious students may start the process of fin- ding a college that will fulfill their in- terests as early as their sophomore year of high school. Of course, starting as juniors was the time when many of my acquaintances started to look for colleges. I started in the beginning of December of my junior year and com- pleted the process well into my senior I if If fi - . 2 its I 'S , 3 can f ...M I f w. ll 1 ' K S i 9, f!

However, the first thing to remember is stay calm! Relax and take everything one step at a time. If you balance your time so that you do well on the tests, your parents will let you live to tell about it: When completing forms, tests and app- lications I felt distraught, enraged, lethargic, wretched, dejected, tormen- ted and apprehensive. However, when I look at the ludicrous nature of the situation, I feel exhiliarated, fervent, joyful and hallucinatory because I am happy to be going to college and realize that all the barriers are just tests. year. College bound students should realize that the best time to start to look for a college is in theirjunior year. After the schools received my sixty- plus post cards, I received a huge quan- tity of catalogs and applications from various schools of varying quality, from Princeton to Johns Hopkins to SUNY-New Paltz. Each post card only required a 14a stamp and the time to fill it out. If a student puts forth an ef- fort, the amount of material upon which to base a decision is amazing, not to mention free. After sorting out all the schools which lacked something, it became evi- dent to me that I had a stack of ten schools I wanted to go to. Then, after seeing the schools and examining app- lication requirements, I narrowed my choices down to a final four, ever though I still had backups. My final four were Penn State, Pitt Syracuse and Clarkson. The narrowing down of these choices was far from an easy accomplishment. Many colleges looked good and fulfilled all the stand- ards I set, but when I actually visited and talked to the people at these places, I only then learned what many of these colleges were actually like. The University of Rochester was appealing to me from its catalogue, but I found it lacking when seen first.hand. However, many of my friends found U of R to be satisfactory. Second, there is basic information that you should find out before you consider any college. The most impor- tant factor is whether the college oi your choice has the major you want to pursue. This includes the full range of disciplines. For example, even though a school may have an engineering pro- gram, the program usually will not cover the full range of majors because of the various disciplines within en- gineering. The University of Rochester had a limited engineering program for my needs. At a cost of5B17,000 per academic year, I had to say, "No way." This was the most expensive tuition outside of Ivy League that I came across. West Virginia University has the widest en- gineering offerings while only costing 36,500 per year. The best offering I found was Pitt which came in with ex- cellent facilities, programs and tea- chers for 511,000 each year. Moreover concerning basic informa- tion, the environment of the college is exceptionally important. Pen- nsylvania State University's main campus at University Park has something some campuses do not have, grass and a tree here and there. The University of Pittsburgh is the com- plete opposite of Penn State. Pitt is URBAN. The quality of facilities, teachers and other students are all important fac- tors. Likewise, access to home is something to be considered heavily and to be taken seriously. You never know when you'll need help from your family or someone you know. Third, it's very important to apply early in your senior year, something I 50 4 Know no limits wish I had done and know that my friends have anguished over. Many un- iversities accepted applications for the fall term after September 15 of our senior year. Instead of doing the smart thing, my friends and I let three months slip by and in general, waited a month before an application was due. It really limits your opportunities when you delay without good reason. Programs fill up. People across the country are taking your spot. Penn State made its first admission cut Nov- ember 30, but the chance to get accep- ted was much better in September when the programs were empty be- cause there was less competition. Pitt's and Clarkson's deadlines were Jan- uary 15 and Syracuse's was February 1. This is an important date to check when considering a college. If you are a borderline candidate for admission at any college, you have time to employ your backups if you get rejected. West Virginia replies within three weeks of receiving an applica- tion. This means that if you took all your tests in yourjunior year and app- lied first thing when you entered school as a senior, you would know if you had a place to go to by the beginn- ing of October. What a relief! The only thing that stopped me was the essay. If you've never heard about the essay, do not get worried. When I saw Pitt's question that asked, "In part one, discuss an event which had a major impact on your life and why. In part two, discuss an activity or interest you enjoy, outside of academics, which might give the Admissions Committee a clearer picture of you, personally," I said, "Oh my!" I put off writing the essay forever because I made myself believe that I had more pressing mat- ters to deal with. My essay turned out to be only 700 words, but I was unable to break myself away from socializing with Jennifer Powers to write it for months. Many institutions do not even re- quire an essay. Therefore, there is no reason for delaying the submission of an application. However, at the other extreme, some of the Ivy League schools require a couple of essays. I was able to submit my Syracuse essay as my Clarkson essay after filling in the appropriate blank with the app- ropriate school name. This was be- cause Clarkson's essay was optional and left you free to write on just about anything you wanted to tell about. Penn State didn't even require an 2 ,A essay at all so I didn't send one because you should send only what the admis- sions people ,ask for. Some schools, such as Villanova, the University of Rochester and Cornell have part one and part two app- lications - a bummer. You have to submit part one with general informa- tion and the application fee before you even get to see the questions on part two. This is a means of finding out who is really interested in attending their schools. Both Susan Funk and I had part ones for Villanova, but we were wary about turning them in and I never did. Finally, the last little items are something that can cause you to go over the edge and scream in a des- perate voice that what you want is to become a construction worker. Score Pitt's Cathedral of Learning reports are really annoying because when you take the exams, you send your scores to four colleges, but then you change your mind. You then have to fill out additional score report cards with a 35.00 fee per report at least one month before you want a college to re- ceive your scores. I nearly missed the Nov. 30 first cut at Penn State, but Carla Morman poin- ted out the due date to me and consequ- ently saved my life. I then had to call the College Board in New Jersey Cwhich cost '79cJ and had my scores rushed at a cost of 320.00. Fortunately, as I write this, I still haven't been billed and I am laughing with glee. The next little item is a teacher re- commendation. I didn't have any app- The Penn State Nittany Lion. lications that required a teacher re- commendation, just Mr. Patridge's, so I was lucky. However, I had to laugh when I saw my friends scurrying about the building trying to find teachers to whom they have not talked since they were freshmen. Students become des- perate because they try to find a tea- cher who can both write and who knows them. After observing my friends, I can honestly say that finding a teacher who is nice enough to write a good recommendation is hard. Never- theless, if you provide some pertinent biographical information, then there should be no problems. There are students who are in fear of asking a teacher for anything, but they just have to force themselves. The last little items are typing the applications and the application fees. Many aplications say "Print or type," but typed applications look so much better to bleary eyed admissions offi- cers who have just looked at 57 app- lications before getting to yours. Any advantage you can get betters your ch- ance for admission, especially an app- lication with an essay where a typed paper is easier to read and looks snazy. Application fees that I ran into ran- ged from 345.00 at the University of Rochester and Cornell University to 310.00 at West Virginia. These fees are nonrefundable which means that the colleges get to keep the money you send them. Most people will not want to waste so much money by applying to lots of schools, so you should pick the schools that you want to try to get into wisely. I paid 325.00 or 330.00 on aver- age. You should apply to a few schools to be safe in case you get rejected, but be wise and do not waste your money by applying to the University of Day- tona or Embry-Riddle Aeronautical School. In conclusion, the only other thing I can offer you is my best wishes for good luck. But remember, good things will come to those who do notjust wait, but try insteadjby Tony Leotta.

Flam- boyant, colorful or plain, each locker is a fingerprint. Although some students feel that their lockers are merely a place to hold books and hang up a coat, many students created a home away from home. And Why not? Over four years it's nice to have a cozy corner in a building that houses over 1700 people during any given week day. The key to having a good locker is in its decoration. This is why, it's impor- tant to lay down some ground rules for locker decore: It's very important to select pic- tures for one's locker which have class. Everything in one's locker should set you apart from the masses and above all else, should be decent. Style counts for everything. How you arrange and break up the mono- tony of drab OHS lockers through varying colors Cespecially bright colorsl, could make or break a locker. Even the best pictures look bad if arranged poorly. Pizzazz is the name of the game. Come out and say to the world, "Look babe, I'm good!" Feel free to show who you are. Pictures, charts, diagrams and even writing pads have to be above standard quality. No sub-standard facsimiles allowed. Cut lots of stuff out of magazines. For example, if you're a sports minded person, in- vest in Sports Illustrated and Ski magazines where you can get those top quality, action-packed photos. Keep your locker clean. Smelly gym sneakers, piles of loose papers, broken pencils and two week old Twinkies can not only ruin the image of a locker, but also promote cock- roach fecundity.

Mr. Altman sees his role as the Science Club advisor in this light: "As we flap through the wonders of science, I keep these people under my wing.

Many of the science rela- ted projects have proven to be fulfilling experiences for the students who were ambitious and creative en- ough to belong to the Sci- ence Club. Members per- formed experiments and other activities, including putting together the laser light show at the MORP, participation in the Science Olympiad and the making of holograms. Within the past year, the production of holograms has increased dramatically at OHS. Mr. Altman's effort to organize and develop this program is a credit to his de- termination towards mak- ing the Science Club one of Oswego's most noted extra- curricular activities. Oswego High Sch'ool's Computer Club certainly en- joyed the number of com- puters that became available for student use at OHS in re- cent years. With this in- creased availability, mem- bers were able to make better use of their free time to ex- plore the wonders of comput- ing. Computer programing and computer literacy were chief goals of the Computer Club. Mclntoshfe computers allowed for the creation of unique printouts and des- igns. From graphs to posters, the laser printer of the Mclntoshfg system gave students the chance to pro- duce quality work.

Classical Rome once again lived as members ofthe Latin Club, advised by Dr. Woodall, started their ac- tivities in early October with a trip to Corning Glass to see "The Glass of the Caesars" display. This field trip proved to be fun, while prov- iding an unique learning ex- perience that related dir- ectly to Roman culture. In January the Latin club's annual Cena Romana was held. A traditional meal of ham and chicken was served. Latin students from OMS and OHS performed skits prepared with the help of Dr. Woodall. One skit was a news broadcast about the well-known eruption of Mount Vesuvius on Sep- tember 24 in A.D. 79, bur- ning three cities: Pompeii, Stabiae and Herculaneum. Interesting acting led to lots of laughs. It was a great ex- perience for Latin Club members to go back in time and learn about ancient Romans. A bake sale was held in February to help pay for the banquet. songs, including "LaBamba" The National Latin Exam was held in March. Oswego students entered into nat- ionwide competition.

For many, it is a way of stretching physical limitations to grea- ter levels. Students participate in sports for a variety of reasons, and at Oswego, the options are numerous. Students can strengthen their coor- dination and eye-hand skills through such sports as golf, bowling, baseball, softball, and diving. Here, they work on form and practice their precision in reaching their maximum potential. Cardio-vascular improvement is im- portant in many school sports. Such sports as track, cross-country, and swimming, call for physical conditon- ing beyond most. It is imperative for these competitors to consistently reach new goals of strength and stamina. Still more sports in the school com- bine both of these qualities. Football, soccer, basketball, hockey, wrestling, 0441 of gvledwlfif and lacrosse force the athlete not only to execute to precision, but to do so while running up and down their re- spected milieus. This requires the ath- lete to push himself to correctly com- plete his task while overcoming physi- cal limitations. All other sports work on a variety of skills and qualities that athletes must define and redefine for their improve- ment. No sport is one dimensional, and all require a great deal of dedication for expected rewards. Many Bucs work dilligently to earn these rewards and receive the price that goes with them The yearbook staff would like to wel- come the Varsity Boys Volleyball team to Oswego's family of sports, and con- gratulate all the athletes who pushed themselves beyond their boundaries to acheive success,you are to be com- mended. Athletics 4 61 Training leads to success ff-season training is integral to the success of any team or individual performer. Any athlete knows that he can't turn himself of for only three or four months out of the year and deliver top notch per- formances. Oswego High School students continually find many ways to push the limits of their capabilities through practice and prep- aration. Over the summer, the weight room facility was populated by participants of all different sports. While members of the hockey and football teams faced attend- ance checks by their coaches, representatives from the soccer, swimming, wrestling, basketball, and lacrosse teams also fre- quented the room. as well as others. All-league lacrosse and hockey star Jason Mantaro summarized the impor- tance of the weight room use: "If you are stronger than your opponent you've got the edge." The many ways that the weight room can prepare for so many dif- ferent sports makes it ap- pealing to all athletes for different reasons. Anyone who ever experi- enced the agony of double 62 4 Beyond all limits sessions in the mid-August heat, knows that some car- diovascular preparation is needed before they start, to cushion the shock of having your body stretched to its limits. These practices can be summed up as doing for you in ten days what should have been done by you in the other 355 put together. Many students took to the streets, the track, and the pool, to increase their cardi- ovascular strength and stamina by running, biking, and swimming. Swimmer Kim Shenefiel stayed in practice all summer as a lifeguard. "I would swim everyday and bike to the pool, to keep in shape." Soc- cer player Megan Hastings ran during the summer. She credited her running with allowing her to "concen- trate on more things during the season than getting in shape." Because of his weight training, calisthenics, and running, senior Dave El- lingwood, football safety and team captain, emerged from double sessions as one of the football team's best athletes. He credited his off- season work for this, saying it gave him "improved strength...and more confi- dence." Many athletes had the op- portunity to participate in their sport for as much as twelve months. Basketball and tennis courts were open from March to November. After that, basketball players began their season and tennis players sought indoor facilities at Laker Hall, or hibernated for the next few months. Die hard golfers had only a few months when they could not play, but when the snow melted, they were on the links. Wrestlers competed in tournaments all year, with the funds provided by the Wrestling Club. Baseball and softball leagues were active in the summer. Soc- cer and lacrosse players were able to prepare all year for their sports. Soccer players competed in sum- mer soccer programs. La- crosse players were often seen tossing the ball back and forth or competing in box lacrosse leagues over the summer. The dedicated athlete knew what he had to do to push his physical bound- aries. A quick check around the school and city at any point in the year revealed a large number of these indi- viduals from OHS.Qby John DeSantis Q A P -sf ....nmI1..' uni-In-, Lisa Parks practices her form Karryn Dennie, Barb Verdoliva, and Amy Feck work on ball control LQ 'WH Bill Fern, Scott Dorvall, Mike Van Buren, Jason Hoey get pumped up for their coming seasons. Weight room advisor, Dave John- son, teaches by example. Weight room more popular ince the weight room opened last year, many ath- letes stretched the limits of their physical and muscular capabilities. Be- cause the facility has the ability to meet optimal mus- cular needs in all sports, our teams were rewarded with more impressive records than previous years. Coaches required that the room be employed by mem- bers of their roster. Foot- ball, hockey, baseball, soc- cer, tennis and swimming team members were either recommended or required to work out. They took great strides, both in personal gains and as contributors to the team. Weight room advisor Dave Johnson cited those who, "...work harder, get more benefits." This could easily be seen by looking at some fellow classmates who came back from summer va- cation looking like Charles Atlas, or entered their sea- son showing all-league form. Junior wrestler Bill Jones attributed the weight room for the doubling of his strength, saying it gave him "...an advantage over opponents," this year Johnson cautioned that the weight room is for more than those sports that re- quired bulging arms and legs. The weight room of- fered countless combina- tions for building muscle for all athletes. The Hydrofit- ness and Universal centers, and free weights offered all the options of any health studio. Johnson tried to, "tailor a program to fit the sport." For example, when the swim team captain, Sam Mele, came in she used the Universal and Hydrofitness machines, and did many repetitions, according to Johnson. This increased her muscular endurance. On the other hand, such a workout would not supply football lineman Duane Buske with the bulk he wanted. He needed to uti- lize the free weights and use heavy weights with low weights for the strength and size that became so useful against opponents weighing around than 300 pounds. Besides the building or toning of muscle, the use of the weight room was good for preventing injuries. By strengthening tendons and connective tissue, athletes decreased the chance of pulls and strains, while gaining flexibility and aerobic capabilities. All in all, the weight room proved to be beneficial to the growth and success of our sports programs. In its first full year of use, our teams had more succesful campaigns than previously. "Pd like to think that this fthe weight roomj has a lit- tle bit to do with it," a modest Johnson concluded. .by John DeSantis Sport Q. I 7' . lb A ' N -75s-'55,-Y .fp I.-2 : .

Coach Frank Bevacqua explained, "We were stron- ger man for man last year, but this year's team meshed together. Everyone work- ing to a maximum effort," was the reason for our suc- cess." Senior Jason Wallace described the year as a "a team effort." Losing Wallace in the lat- ter part of the season was a major turning point in the Bucs' season. His injury came as the booters trailed Gb O t fBounds J. Wallace looks to stop a scoring threat. West Genesee. After his dep- arture the team redoubled its efforts to win the game for him. Coach Bevacqua said, "I knew then there was something special about this group of kids." According to Senior Darren Crovitz, "Coming from be- hind and winning the game for Jason," was the biggest thrill of the season. Late season losses hurt the Bucs. First, in the final game of the regular season, the Bucs lost to C-NS, in a game that could have earned them home field advantage in the sectional tournament. Instead, in their second game of the tourney, they succumbed to the strength of Liverpool, the eventual section champs. Some of the team's other major triumphs came in victories over other per- ennial Section III powers. Aside from the thrilling West Genesee win, they also travelled to Fayetteville- Manlius and defeated the Hornets, 3-1. In the second to last game of the season, they defeated the same Liv- erpool team who handed them their final loss, 3-2. These wins prompted Wallace to say, "We knew we could play with the best." Looking to the future, Coach Bevacqua expects the momentum that last season generated to carry forward. "The pressure may be on fthe programj, next year .... People will respect our program for its value." The upcoming varsity squad will need plenty of work in the weight room, off-season soccer Cindoor and outdoorj, they will need to be in shape and to be hungry.

"I made a com- mitment to attempt to stay in playing condition, and set certain preseason goals for myself." Even he had to be satisfied with hisperform- ance over the course of the season. As was Coach Frank Be- vacqua, "He surpassed my expectations, setting a good 66 4 Out ofBounds example on the field,for the team." that is the level of play, that Crovitz strove for, always for his fellow players. "Personal gains take a backseat to the team's benefits," he says. For Darren, competition is "...one reason I play the game."

Coach Dick Benjamin descri- bed his team as being "equal" in talent, with no one actu- ally taking an MVP position. He was pleased with the improvement of the fresh- men over the course of the season. "Since most of the larger schools we play have freshman teams along with IV, we were playing teams with many more experienced players," coach Benjamin stated. This factor is a dif- ficult one to work against. Playing on the JV level against schools that have freshmen teams is often a hard task. Especially of freshmen. These players are matched up against other players that already have 1-3 years high school playing experience. Despite the disadvant- ages, the JV booters had a good attitude, which helped in their improvement on the field. Even though Ben- jamin did not pick anMVP, he did individually praise Craig Losurdo for his all- around excellent play. Whether it was on the field or in the goal, Craig prov- edhimself a valualbe player. A strong defense was a key factor for the teams success. Led by Daryl Peterson, Chad Holbert, Rick Bonney, John Belt, and Brian Holliday, the def- ense Was an asset to the team. Coach Benjamin conclu- ded in saying, "We have many players with much potential for the varsity level." the major reason for any junior varsiy team is to better prepare the players for the varsity level. The im- portace is to gain valuable experience, and to get a feel for the game. By trying to play everyone, and teach the importance of the game, Coach Benjamin will have paved the Way for the future varsity members.

Lady Booters overcome oming off an im- pressive previous season, the Girls' Varsity Soccer team headed into the 1987 season with its work cut out. The Section III league, filled with very tough and talented teams, gave Os- wego tough competition. While finishing off the sea- son with a 9-4 record, and placing 4th in the league, the girls gained much val- uable experience. The season started with Oswego up against two very competitive teams: West Genesee and Liverpool. Although badly losing to both teams, the girls were still determined to prove their talent. They went on to win eight of their next ten games. The three teams Oswego was unable to beat all sea- son, Liverpool, West Gen- esee, and Fayetteville- Manlius, were also the three teams to finish above Oswego in the league stand- ings. Although the three are big schools with excel- lent soccer programs, the Oswego girls put pressure on these teams in their en- counters. One of Oswego's most thrilling games was its second meeting with Liver- pool. Although losing to the number one ranked, unde- feated team, Liverpool, 3-4, Oswego never released the pressure and played well. Scoring three times in one game was a big accomplish- ment, considering the War- rior team had only been scored on one time all sea- son until their meeting with the Lady Bucs. A definite low point of the season was the final game loss to East Suracuse- Minoa in the lst round of the sectionals. A rainy game turned especially dis- mal as the girls lost to the visiting Spartans, 2-1, ruin- ing any hope for a return trip to the Carrier Dome in 1987. Even without having the successful season desired, the players had positive feelings. Second year var- sity player Megan Hastings said, "A young team, com- bined with a tough season, were factors we worked hard in overcoming. We pulled our act together at the end, but it was a little too late." As for next year, the senior co-captain pre- dicted a very good season. "This season was one of re- building the team to an ex- perienced group of players. Next year, the team should be very strong in all posi- tions of the field." Denise Clark reflected similar feel- ings as she said, "the season had a slow start due to the large amount of newcomers. Since this season was one of hard competition, all our young players gained a lot of valuable experience. That is going to help us a great deal in our next sea- son." Coach Deborah Scholla saw a strong offense that contributed to the team's success. Led by third year varsity players Juniors Barb Verdoliva and Denise Clark, Oswego was always a odds scoring threat to the other team. She also commented on the fine play of sopho- mores Aimee Campbell and Amy Feck, who combined for eleven goals and three assists. All-league honorable mention status went to Dawn Delaney, Tracy Pat- rick, and Karryn Dennie. All-league 1st team honors were awarded to Barb Ver- doliva and senior keeper Kristina Lenahan. Verdo- liva also made the All- Section III team, a first for an Oswego player. She cap- tured the prestigious honor of the league's leading scorer, accumulating 22 goals and 6 assists. With a talented and ex- perienced team and players from the JV team, the Os- wego Girls Varsity Soccer team has much to look for- ward to in the season ahead. A well-rounded team that will have experience in all positions of the field will be a key factor in the perform- ance of the varsity squad.

Kristina started playing soccer at the Youth Soccer level, as do most OHS soccer athletes. She picked goalie as her position in eighth grade. As a freshman, Kris- tina made the varsity team and began her career as an important goal keeper for the Lady Bucs. She saw her freshman year as one of a lot of valuable experience to be gained. "The older play- ers helped a lot in me get- ting used to the varsity play," she said. Coach Deb- orah Scholla saw Kristina's potential right from the start. According to her, "Kristina had natural game experience and game sense. She worked hard and con- centrated until she perfec- ted a skill." Those hard-working habits kept Kristina going for four years. By playing on the spring and summer soccer teams, and playing on the summer select team for two years, Kristina al- ways kept her skills sharp. She made the Honorable Mention list in soccer her freshman year, and made the first team honors in her junior and senior year. She's served as captain for the past two years, as well as being named MVP in her junior year. Coach Scholla views Kris- tina as "the top goalkeeper to pass through Oswego in statistics and skills." By helping in a league cham- pionship, and sectional title, she has proven her leadership abilities. Al- though she sees the support of her family and coaches as important factors in her athletic success, most of her determination "comes from within myself," she says. Besides playing soccer, Kristina also plays basket- ball and softball. Honors in these sports include: soft- ball, 2nd team in her sopho- more year, and basketball, second team, junior year and captain, senior year. Kristina has a scholar- ship to Niagara University where next year, she will continue to play soccer.Qby Kelly Shefiield. J V's gain knowledge eam hustle was an important factor for the JV Girls' Soccer team's success, ac- cording to Coach Mark Mir- abito. With only two return- ing starters from the pre- vious season, the JV ladies established an impressive 9-4 record. Many freshmen gave the team little experi- ence at the beginning of the season, but it was to be no hindrance as the girls steadily improved. Beating West Genesee after an early season loss, was one of the team's big- gest thrills. Another came with a 2-1 overtime victory over Cicero-North Syra- cuse. Oswego finished in third place in the division, behind Liverpool Clstj and Fayette- ville-Manlius C2ndJ. Coach Mirabito commen- ted on the girls' overall im- provement over the season. "They were a young team, but their ability to learn im- portant skills quickly, helped them in keeping up with the more expreienced Karryn Dennie winds up to put all of her leg into the ball. teams," said the coach. He added, "They gave up only 17 goals in 13 games, which is very good for a JV team, mostly made up of fresh- men." Defensive stand-out and second year JV player Cathy Palmitesso had posi- tive remarks about the sea- son. According to her, "It was almost an entirely dif- ferent team from the year before, but we adjusted well and worked together." Leading the defense were co-captains Cathy Palmi- tesso, Patty Scanlon,and Katy Auleta. Midfield per- formers included Sara Hastings, Julie Funk, Stephanie Scandura, and Kari Pauldine. Offensively, Rachel Johnson lead the scoring with 16 goals. Rhonda Bullard and Tracey Rando each tallied four goals,while co-captain Jennifer Nelson and Katrina Fellows each net- ted three.

Their exceptional performances at invita- tionals and state champion- ships showed their competi- tive capabilities, even in the face of a losing season. Competing with six of the top teams in the state, the team fared a 2-8 overall rec- ord including a league rec- ord of 1-7. The team suffered tough losses to rivals Au- burn and Baldwinsville, while showing impressive ability over tough E-SM and FM teams, 19-36 and 19- 32, respectively. The Bucs were led by tri- captains, Rick Angelina, Scott Birdsall, and Time Crisafulli. Each of them were lead runers at least once during season. These three boys led the varsity team to several impressive meet and invitational fin- ishes, including an exciting second place finish at Fayetteville-Manlius. "The team displayed good team- work, but we lacked experi- ence.

Crisafulli chases father iscipline and commitment are two of the many honorable words to describe OHS Bucs cross- country star Tim Crisafulli. Tim joined cross country for an unusual reason - to lose weight. He described himself as being "a little fat kid running around the track." Since then he has not only gotten into shape, but also improved his race times considerably. He says cross country is a tough sport because it requires a lot of training and stamina. "It's tough to get up on those cold mornings to run," says Tim, abut if you want to stay competitive you must be dedicated? Tim's father, OHS busi- ness teacher and cross country coach Lou Crisa- fulli, is proud of him from both a parent's and coach's viewpoint. Tim finds this situation to be positive for him. "It's like having a year-round, private trainer. He never pushed me into running, but once I made the commitment on my own, he was behind me IOOWJU He continually displayed his talent throughout the season. He placed in the top three out of OHS runners at each invitational, including being the team leader three of those races. He was just as competitive against run- ners from around the state, placing 17th out of over 175 runners at the McQuaid In- vitational sophomore's race, and placing an impres- sive 33rd at the Section III Championships. All-league honors is the goal that Tim is shooting for next season. He says it will take a lot of hard work and training, but it's within his reach.

There was a lot of hard work mixed with a lot of fun, as the 1-11 Bucs proved that to have success doesn't alweays mean a great record. What the team did do was build a solid nucleus for the future of the sport following 1 I 2 Z E 1 1 i I 5 s 5 i 1 its inaugural season. "We had to start from scratch," said Parisian. From there, they grew and grew until they "became like a family." Senior Scott Symons led the team with aggressive play, while Bill Carnal and Kevin Martin supplied steady setting. Parisian also cited Bob Gilmore, Chris Lamb, and Russell Dam for their heady play. "Coach Parsian gets all the credit. He took a group of kids who only knew gym vol- leyball, and made us into a team, while keeping it seri- ous, but fun also." Symons added. The team's first win was its greatest thrill. Their vic- tory over Cicero-North Syra cuse, was "the greatest feel ing in the world," according to Symons. It was then tha' this young, inexperiencec group came together as 2 team.

Scott applied many positive qualities to improve his game. Coach David Parisian said of Scott, "He has a very strong will to succeed," and characterized him as a "very good team leader," likening him to a spark plug because of his ability to in- itiate momentum among his fellow players. "He fired things up in a hurry." Scott emerged as a leader, not so much by his mouth, as by his court examples. Scott first developed an interest in the sport as a spectator. From there he transformed himself from sideline watcher, to on- court player. "I love watch- ing volleyball," he says, "I love playing it even more, now. It's addicting, it really is."

The only blemish on their record appeared in their final meet of the season against Bal- dwinsville, losing by a mere single point. Team captains Vicky Mangano, Ginny Taylor, and Kathy Pullen turned in impressive performances, while Candy Zollitch and Mary Beth McAllister showed their talents as they were among the highest scorers on the team. Team coach Ms. Karyn Carradine says she was es- pecially pleased with her team's depth. A replace- ment was there anytime she needed one. The team recorded many impressive performances with individual wins by 28 Pullen en a player faces com- petitions, he or she tries to excel, gives 100921, and works to the best of his or her abilities. But when a player is hindered by an in- jury he or she must try even harder.

Coming shortly before the sectionals, it caused her to compete in the sectionals while at less than IOOW. "I championship was excep- tionally special. It should encourage more gymnasts next year and provide a goal to shoot for in the coming year: defending this feat. Mary Beth McAllister says the major reason why the team did so well was the fact that there was a lot of experience.

Many individual honors were also earned by Krista Fry and Mary Beth McAllis- ter, who received All-league honors, while Kathy Pullen qualified as Athlete of the Week. Ms. Carradine felt especi- ally proud of the team not because of the league title but because of the fact that they all worked as a team and had each other's com- plete support. "They were all friends. They were all rooting for certain indi- viduals to receive league or state honors, as well as for the team as a whole. It was simply the best performing team, as well as a complete enjoyment to coach", she said. She also mentioned that winning the league overcomes injuries felt I worked hard and wasn't going to allow an in- jury to keep me out of the most important meet of the year," was how Pullen des- cribed her attitude. Aside from the school team, Kathy competes in the Central New York Gym- nastics Club in Syracuse. This club has provided her with experience and com- petition all over the East Coast. This training has helped her break all five OHS records on the uneven bars, balance beam, floor exercise, vault and overall performance. Coach Car- radine says that "it will be hard to replace Kathy's ex- pertise. CSheD is such a hard worker, dedicated in all areas and always trys her hardest," says Carradine. "She's also a team per- former, when she was in- capable of performing, she proved her devotion to the team by coaching, and prov- iding moral encourage- ment.".

She was joined by Sibyl Carnal, who went to the sectionals for diving. Team captains Kim Shenefiel and Sam Mele put in strong performances in the freestyle events.

The team's future looks to be more ofthe same unless a strong influx of swimmers comes from the middle school. On a somber note, Nettles looks to the future saying, "Unless we get younger girls that are going to get into swimming, there won't be alot of hope for the team." "Of the twelve people on the team, four of them are graduating," warned Shenefiel. Much work and support will be needed for next year's team not to suffer the same fate.

Brandy Nettles walked away from 1987 leaving a string of medals and records behind her. Teammate Kim Shenefiel found "Brandyls acheive- ments and breaking more records," to be the highlight of the swimming season. "My best friend got me into it," is how Nettlese ex- plained her first interest in swimming, at the age of seven. She credits her suc- cess to "determination, I really want to do my best every time I swim." Brandy has toppled many records and collected many rewards for her dedication. At last summerls AAUIUSA Junior Olympics, she not only won seven gold medals, she also contributed in set- ting seven records. She fin- ished second in three relays at the Empire State Games. At the YMCA State Meet, she took two first, breaking two records, and one second. Brandy looks to improve upon her times and her sixth and seventh place fin- ishes in the state tourna- ment. She also hopes to im- prove her stroke work in the final two years here, before taking her talents to more competitive level of col- legiate swimming. She has already shown she can swim with the best in the country and come out on top. "I really love swimming, the competition, and the ex- ercise." Brandy concludes.

Senior def- ensive halfback and captain David Ellingwood saw "more dedication this year...we played better as a team." All doubts of another no win season were ex- tinguished when the Bucs traveled to Bishop Ludden for their first game and blew the Ludden grid off the field in a 44-0 drubbing. As if to prove that that was no fluke, the next week the Bucs visi- ted Central Square and em- barrassed their nemesis, 40- 0. The Bucs suffered a set- back in front of the home crowd, bowing to F-M, 21-0, on a muddy Leighton Field. Back came the Bucs with a trouncing of their arch-rival Fulton, 46-6, to bring Buc Weekend to a stunning climax. The Bucs would roll off three more wins over ES- M, Mount Pleasant, and a tough Whitesboro team. The year's biggest dis- appointment came in the last league game. A snow- covered Leighton Field was the site where a Buccaneer win could boost the squad to the Dome, Central New York Football's Holy Land. All that was needed was a win over undefeated New Hartford. The weather hin- dered Oswego's high- powered passing attack, causing four interceptions, three of which were re- turned for touchdowns, in a 42-20 disappointment. Able to recover from the loss the, the Bucs finished their sea- son at home with a narrow victory over Auburn. The team was strong in all aspects. School records were set in points scored, over all and average per game, and in least amount of points given up. The Bucs also were well represented on the All-league teams with 15 on the roster.

Coach Dewey named his MVP's to be Clary, Islami, Sechler, iceli, and Canale. Another major award earned by the team was the Francis J.

At the on-set of the sea- son, "I thought the skill posi- tions were as good as any in the league," says Coach Dewey. He was pleased when the team "got better defensively and the line came along." Because of the steady improveent of the line play,"our running game came along." Islami cited one reason for the teams success: "We did more, we didn't say as much." Dewey added that "Better leadership among the seniors and people work- ing inthe off-season kept the team going." Clarifying, he states, "If you don't have leadership from the seniors, not just captains, but all seniors, you're not going to have a good team."

Captains Dan McMi11en, Chris Nordby, and Bob Ascenzi were picked well into the season and lent some on-field leadership to the team. Clyne was pleased when this leadership finally emerged, and the team re- sponded well to it, despite playing a tough latter part of the schedule. The offense was led by good skill positions. Both Wayne Bowman and Bob Ascenzi piloted the team to productive offense. They scored a touchdown or more in every game, including four in the win against Fulton. Clyne was also im- pressed by the defensive play. Spearheaded by lin- ebacker Chris Nordby, only three teams scored more than two touchdowns. Clyne believes that these guys just need more experi- ence and preparation to gain success. "As the kids learn and improve, the team will do better."

Sport Mr. Wilber completes successful tenure as AD or the past 25 years, Mr. Joseph Wilber has been Athletic Director of the Oswego City School Dis- trict. He has been in charge of coordinating all athletic programs, interscholastic and intramurals, health, and physical education. He has supervised coaches, arran- ged insurance coverage, scheduled events, and car- ried a plethora of other re- sponsibilities. After so many years of loyal service to the school, Mr. Wilber is retiring from his post in June 1988. When asked to share their impressions regarding the impact of Mr. Wilber on the athletic programs in the city schools, the comments were all similar in their emphasis upon the solid contributions which Mr. Wilber has made during his tenure. "He's al- ways been there when you needed him. He helps coaches anyway he can. He's a workaholic, in no other school system do you find anyone who puts in the hours that he does." said Coach Erwin Dewey. Coach Mike Clyne said of his boss, "He's been a steadying influence. Really strong in trying to teach values." When asked what his most memorable momemt was, he rattled off several amazing athletic feats and memories, and feared he had left some out. He recalled a perfect game pitched by Mike Reidyg a one-handed, bare-handed, home-run saving catch by Mike Skinner, wrestling state-champions Brian Akley and Jim Matteson, several Dome appearances by OHS squads, a Section III championship, over-time loss in hockey, State Track Championships by half-miler Denise Sawyer, and shot- putter Kim Snyder. He has enjoyed watching the girls gymnastic program grow from a "zero" to capture of a league championship this year. Trying to include mem- ories from all sports he re- membered all of Oswego's fine boys and girls swimmers, and the 1986 girls' Soccer team, that advanced to the regional playoffs. He also said he enjoyed watch- ing the successful college careers of Buccaneer alumni and alumnae. Mr. Wilber was very pen- sive when trying to recall these memories because he didn't want to forget anyone. That's the type of fairness that he has utilized during his tenure. What pleased Mr. Wilber the most as an Athletic Dir- ector? "Any Coach...is sat- isfied with the over-achiever and likewise frustrated by under-achiever," he says. In his final season, he was more than satisfied with the suc- cess of the varsity football, soccer, and basketball teams,as well as the girls' volleyball teams. They were supposedly hit hard by graduaton, yet came through with triumphant seasons, in what he called a "coach's delight". Coach Mark Mirabito, was most impressed by Wil- bur's work ethic. "Go by the Board of Education at Sat- urday at 8 a.m. and Chej is there. He puts in the number of hours that are necessary to do a good job." Wilber will miss, "the kids and the staff, the fast-paced schedule of the job, and the association with the fine personnel from our oppos- ing schools." He hopes for an increases in team sizes, after his departure." "In Os- wego, with all our athletic teams, band , ski club, and youth activity programs, plus the increased op- portunities for youth em- ployment...squad sizes seem to diminish, as do crowds." Mr. Wilber will set his sights toward the road in the coming years. He wants to attend many of the major athletic events around the nation. He also wants to ex- perience the festivities of the many cities of America. He also looks forward to "putting away the calendar and the wristwatch so I won't always be worrying about schedules." Final thoughts? "He's very easy to work with. He's a nice guy," said Clyne, with Dewey adding, "He's for Os- wego High School athletics and I think it shows in the way he does his job." Oswego athletics will miss its long time coordina- tor, because wherever there was a sporting event, there was Mr. Wilber. He gave of himself 25 hours a day, eight days a week, for the past quarter century.

Fif- ,een year head-coach Elmer Xkley, respected as a coach md referee throughout Cen- pral New York, entered the fear with a dedicated core of :ight wrestlers, and others ivho came for a few practices Jut never stuck it out. Junior Bill Jones asserted phat the reason there were so 'ew was, "because it's such a Lough sport." Coach Akley was most impressed this year zvith "the few individuals :hat stuck with it and worked zery hard." However be- :ause the team often gave up is many as 36 points in for- 'eits, winning became impos- sible for many of their mat- zhes. The biggest thrill of the rear came when the team Lravelled to Henninger CSyr- zcusel and won all but one natch en route to a victory. Fhe night was highlighted by 1 narrow victory in the final natch by Darin "Bunger" Burroughs, his first varsity .aw victory. The team's woes were magnified in competitions against Fayetteville- Manlius, and Rome Free Academy, poor teams who beat the Bucs only because of the tremendous deficit created by forfeits. In the F-M match, a 36-31 loss, the Bucs Won six of seven mat- ches but still lost. This year's team was led in victories by Freshman Jeff Brancato who wrestled initially as a 105 pounder and later as a 98 pounder. He scaled the 20 victory plateau and advanced to the Section III tournament, after taking second in the leagues and third in the Class A tournaments. He was also a first place winner at the Ilion tournament mid-season. He was fol- lowed by Senior Captain John DeSantis C138- 145poundsD with fifteen victories in his final camp- aign. Other strong com- petitors were Bill Jones C132-119 poundsj, Sopho- more Guy Wadas C112 poundsl, and eighth-grader Shawn Akley C126 poundsj. Coach Akley said of his team, "The attitude of the boys that wrestled was very good. They realized that they had to do it for themselves because the team didn't have a chance for very much success." Brancato would like to have seen a larger turnout because he feels that then, "we could have gone further in post-season." Jones promised that "if we could get more people, we could get our matches back at Leighton," where the team dreams of put- ting on a show comparable to Fulton's strobe lights and fanfare. Guy Wadas sees the sport as distinguishable because "it's an individual sport, based on yourself, on what you can do, your talent, and your cap- ability." In order for the team to prosper once more, they will need to have a return of good wrestlers who gave up on the sport this year. "If we can get some of the guys that should be out for the team that didn't come out this year, I feel that we can return to the status we - p 5 K - .kk .. 1 , .. . -- K . ffll rf. ' 'f1t..

With a personal aside, as my twelve years in the sport came to an end this year, I look back and say that this is truly the most rewarding sport that Oswego offers. However, it takes discipline to find this reward. And while Ilve never possessed the discipline of the true champions of the sport, I have gained much and have been proud to be a part of the program with Mr. Akley and all those that I have wrestled with over the years.

X2 Q0 Out ofBo1mds Varsity cagers impress and surprise oming off a dis- appointing 1986- 87 year with only four wins, the Boys' Varsity basketball team surprised many by posting a much improved 8- 12 record and qualifying for a sectional berth. The squad compensated for a lack of height by taking advantage of the new three-point shot rule and by playing with an unequalled amount of hustle and determination. Fortified by the strong play of Jason Wallace at the for- ward position and a fleet- footed corps of jump-shot artists, the Bucs were able to gain a foothold in the tough OHSL-North league. The OHS cagers had no official captains, but were instead led by the outstand- ing seniors on the team: Jason Wallace, Bob Van- Alstyne, Andy Clary, Jahan Islami, and Rick Pollard. Several school records were broken during the year, in- cluding foul shots CJason Wallace, 1111 and field goal percentage in one game C6-3fZnl. Coach Bill Farden credited the Buc's improved season to 'f...determination, teamwork, and the 3-pt. shot." Bob VanAlstyne agrees. "Three-pointers and hustle. No doubt about it," he said. The three-point goal be- came a working part of the hoopsters' offense, as ace shooters Andy Clary and Bob Gilmore repeatedly kept Oswego close in many games. Clary led the league in that category with 36, and Gilmore finished with 32 baskets from three-point range. In addition to the all- around hustle of players such as Wallace and Islami, the Bucs had a strong and dependable bench. Dan Connelly, Victor Martin, Rob Ball, Jeff Krakowka, Duane Buske, and Trevor Crovitz did not start often, but were valuable threats in any tough game situ- ation. Facing several discourag- ing early defeats, the Bucs were spurred on by a dom- inant performance at the Canastota Christmas Tournament, which the team swept in two games. Although the bigger teams in the league such as C-NS and Liverpool outsized them, the OHS cagers were able to play well against most any opponent. Coach Farden lists an exciting, last-second win against Au- burn as one of the high- points of the season. Finishing seventh in the league, the Buc hoopsters surprised their critics by making the sectionals. Though they lost to West Genesee in their first post- season match, their re- markable play and hustle gained them respect both at home and away. "We had team chemistry," says Jahan Islami." "It was all there this year." The determined charac- ter of the team will surely continue next year, as standout returnees Victor Martin and Rob Ball lead the OHS squad in "setting no limits" on the courtyby Darren Crovitz J.

It was here that Jason proved how hard work benefits all who play with him. Coach Frank Be- vacqua called him "the soul" ofthe team. According to his basketball coach, Mr. Bill Farden, Wallace has "an inner drive. He plays to win, day in and day out." Indeed, his enthusiasm has been the cause of a rise in play by his teammates has brought him praise from even opposing coaches. Senior guard Dan Conelly said that Wallace was "an inspiration to the rest of the team." Junior Victor Martin describes him as "the kind of player whose efforts carried over to everyone else. You gained experience by just playing with him." It is this resolute attitude which has led Far- den to deem Jason as "one of the hardest working players I've ever seen."

Jason lists an MVP award at the Canastota Tourna- ment, 24 points in a game against Liverpool, and sink- ing two last second free throws before an excited home crowd against Au- burn, as his most memor- able moments of the season. Jason is humble about his achievements, however, preferring to center most of the attention upon the team itself. He credits the success ofthis years' squad to a feel- ing of camaraderie which prevailed through the en- tire year. As a senior, Jason plans to attend Clarkson or RIT, and hopes to play either college basketball or soccer, though his baseball skills may also come in handy on campus. Coach Farden agrees, claiming that Jason has gained much experience against bigger opponents. Wherever Jason goes, there is no doubt that he will suc- ceed as a student and a player.

Despite the fact that they won some games, the coach says that his main goal was for all the players to see play- ing time and enjoy the sat- isfaction of teamwork. Coach Nix felt it was most important that the team worked together and that everyone saw action at sometime in every game. He would often play a set of players for the first half and play the other set for the second half. Coach Nix said, "I feel that every kid that practices hard should have the chance to gain experi- ence by playing reasonable amounts of time in every game." There are numerous advantages with this type of coaching. It not only helps the players Work together as a team, it also helps those players that are excellent in practice but tense up dur- ing games.

They were led by seven seniors, including OHSL North scoring leader Angel Lagoe, and finished with a 6-14 record C6-12 leaguel. It was a contrasting sea- son that provided memories like last second victories over rival Auburn, 55-50 and 47-45, and disappoint- ments like a two point loss to rival Henninger that knocked the team out of the post-season picture. Lack of size was a major concern for the team as they faced off against stronger teams several times throughout the sea- son. Coach Campbell opined that the team performed very well playing strong de- fensive games in which they ran and shot well. His only concern was that they were a bit weak on rebounding, stating that sometimes they got hurt by teams that were able to get off second and third shots. The three point line came into girls' basketball this year and paid some divi- dends towards the end of the season for the team. Lagoe led the team in this department, hitting 24 of those as part of her team high 17.8 points per game. Next year, the team will have some major holes for the seven outstanding indi- viduals who will be graduat- ing at the end of this year. There will be a total of four returning players in Jenni- fer Roy and Missy Dewey who will be seniors, and also two improving players Becky Bernys and Denell Downum. With the losses of starters Lenahan, Lagoe, and Baker there will be a tough task for the return- ing players to accomplish. .by Darrell. Narayan.

This tied them with F-M for third place in the Section III Class A league with a 13-5 record. Liver- pool and West Genesee cap- tured first and second place. Coming into the 1987-88 season with a very inex- perienced varsity squad proved to be no hindrance to the team's success. With six players moving up from the JV team, which had an ex- cellent 17-1 record during the 1986-87 season, Coach Helen Kessler had much talent to work with. Even with the limited varsity ex- perience, the team's overall potential and talent made them a strong league con- tender. According to Coach Kess- ler, two factors that contri- buted to the team's success were being able to play the floor well and having two good setters. Two returning seniors, Karryn Dennie and Megan Hastings, took strong leadership roles in helping the team develop its skills. Kessler went on to comment that the playing of the whole team is what made the season so success- ful. "We were weaker at the net this year, but we made up for that with aggressive floor play," commented the coach. Along with this Kess- ler said the team had "excel- lent serving." First year varsity spiker Julie Zaryski saw the sea- son as a good learning ex- perience. "Our young players got valuable play- ing time and experience, which will help us a lot next year," she said The volleyball season had its ups and downs for the team. A definite low was los- ing to West Genesee in the semi-finals of the Sectional tournament, ending the Bucs' chance of meeting Liverpool in the champion- ship game, and ending the season. West Genesee seemed to be the only ob- stacle for the team. In three matches against West Gen- esee, Oswego couldn't come out with a victory. Other lowpoints were losing to both Fayetteville-Manlius and Auburn after earlier season wins. Many high points made the season an enjoyable one. By starting off the sea- son with a 6-0 league record, the girls showed their det- ermination to be a strong league contender. The most memorable game of the sea- son was the Bucs' second meeting against Liverpool. In front of a large home crowd, Oswego beat the number one team in two games. Previously, Live- rpool had narrowly beaten the Lady Bucs in three games, 15-13, 15-17, 15-17. After receiving uncalled for remarks from the Liverpool coach, the Lady Bucs were determined to beat the Warrior team the second time around. With a near perfect match, Liverpool fell the the Bucs, 16-14, and 15-8. Every aspect of the game - bumping, spiking, setting, blocking, and ser- ving - was carried out flaw- lessly by the Bucs. With hard work and determina- tion, Liverpool never had a chance. Other high points were the early season wins against such talented teams as Fayetteville- Manlius, Rome, and East Syracuse-Minoa. Also, two victories over rival Fulton were, as always, a pleasure. New school volleyball re- cords were also established by this year's squad. Megan Hastings established two new set records: most per game 1233 and most per match 1521. Maureen Coughlin set two new spiking records, with most per game 1135, and most per match 1235. Amy Feck set two new dump records with 12 in one game and 20 in one match. Kelly Sheffield tied for the most blocks per game - four. Making the All-league team this year was Megan Hastings. Karryn Dennie and Maureen Coughlin both made the honorable mention list. Along with this, Hastings and Dennie were selected as the Palladium- Times Co-Athletes of the Week in December for their leading roles as setters for the varsity team. Next year looks very bright for the girls' varsity volleyball team. Upcoming seniors Denise Clark, Sandy Nettles, Kelly Sheffield, and Julie Zaryski now have the Varsity experience to lead the team. Upcoming juniors Amy Feck, Aimee Campbell, Teresa Fontana, and Cathy Palmitesso will also add much talent to the team.

JV spikers can't be beat nder the direction of Coach Mark Mirabito, the JV Girls' Volleyball team established a most im- pressive 23-0 overall record for the 1987-88 season. With an 18-0 league record, Os- wego captued first place in the Section III Class A league. This marked the first time a JV volleyball team from Oswego has gone un- defeated, topping the 17-1 mark set last year. When asked to pick specific factors that attributed to the team's overall record, Coach Mirabito identified three: athletic ability, hard work at practice, and experience from the Middle School. "The Freshmen came from the eighth grade team with ex- cellent skills. They played like an experienced team even though the team consis- ted of nine Freshmen and just three Sophomores," commented the coach. A remarkable achieve- ment also to note is that out of 48 games, Oswego won 46. To lose only two games out of 23 matches is a major ac- complishment for any vol- leyball team. According to Coach Mir- abito, Sophomore tri- captains Cathy Palmitesso, Aimee Campbell, and Teresa Fontana did an ex- cellent job at leading the team. "Last year, we were the followers of the older Sophomores and we learned alot. This year we became the leaders of the Fresh- men," commented Fontana. Freshman Tracy La- Plante saw the season as very productive. "We all im- proved a lot, so next year we should do just as good. Everyone received a lot of playing time," she said. Coach Mirabito viewed the season as all 12 mem- bers playing well, as a total team effort. He also noted three players who helped with their versatility - being able to play setter or spiker. These players were Rachel Johnson, Amy Steinbrecher, and Aimee Campbell. Things look bright not only for next year's JV spikers but for the Varsity team that will receive at least three new solid pl3.y6I'S..by Kelly Sheffield. e -Xian gil ji . i f Q ' ix -, 1 ji ,N .. - n 42,4 . 5 A x Tricia Pritchard stretches to put all she has into the ball. 3 is .i .,i Y . , I r X 1 2 .

Swimmers set and broke personal records through- out the course ofthe season. Senior captain Steve Saba- tini said, "Times went down with a lot of personal bests. 7 That's all you can ask for, we were a very young team." Coach McCaul attributed these personal triumphs to "hard work." He lauded Matt Mitchell and Pat Chet- ney as team stand-outs. Mitchell, a sophomore, re- ceived particular praise for his dedication to the sport, which impressed his coach. All-league honors went to Chetney, Mitchell, Saba- tini, and Jim Tschudy.

But he does plan to make the most ofthe rest ofhis swimming career. He hopes to make it to the Sectional and State champi- onships next year. Coach Jim McCaul com- plimented Pat for his contri- i res Chetney bution to the team, "He ben- efitted the team by Chisb ver- satility, he's very skilled in three of the four strokes. He's very team-oriented, in that he was willing to fill in where the team needed him." Pat attributes much of his success to two popular char- actersics in the life of an athlete. First he says he has an "inner-drive," that helps him to reach back for that something extra when he needs it. Second, is backing by his parents and those close to him. "My family is a big supporter," he explains. So, if Pat isn't going to continue swimming after high school, where will he focus his interests?

Lamb sets high sights en Oswego first got its bowling team last year, it must have been a great feeling for Chris Lamb. Now a senior, he has been interested in bowling for six years. His introduc- tion to the sport came from within his family. "My father used to bowl, I went out for fun, then joined a league." From there, Chris has put together a long string of victories, capped most re- cently with a victory in the statewide tournament of the Youth Bowlers Tour CYBTJ. He is also, scholas- tically, the fourth ranked bowler in the state, point- wise, and a city tournament victor. Chris led the league in average this year and bowled an impressive 790 series, including a near per- fect game in the 280's. His favorite part of bow- ling is "the accomplishment of winning, being on top." After he graduates, Chris will enter a regional tour where he will dedide whether he will join a semi- professional tour or not. These are the type of goals that champions are made Of.Qby John DeSantis Varsity rollers establish team and records swego established itself as a strong bowling contender, as a solid corps of boys and girls were competit- ive against other schools. Led by Senior Chris Lamb, four of the top seven league bowlers were Bucs. Joining Chris, as First-team All leaguers were his brother, Sophomore Bryan Lamb, and Juniors Jody DelBrocco and Myke Perry. First year- coach Joe Losurdo, assisted by sibling Jim, were credited by Lamb as helpful and lik- able, making their inaugural year a success. One problem for the team seemed to be putting other teams away. There would al- ways be a lapse. Said Fresh- man Jeremy Watchus, "We never could win the third game, we'd always lose by ten pins or less." In the state tournament, the team was leading all the way until a set back in the final game burst their bubble. It seemed to be a season bordering on great- ness. It was one that the bowlers can be proud of for their strong appearances. Perry tells how the team had, "the top four of five highest series, and the second, third, and fourth highest games ," high- lighted by an impressive 790 series, with a 280 game in that series. The team will retain en- ough solid underclassmen to stay strong next year alsolbyy John DeSantis Indoor Track gives good preparation y, G, he Indoor Track team looked to be a harbinger of suc- cess for the spring track team. There were many outstanding part- icipants on both the girls' and guys' teams. Coach Erwin Dewey found strengths in both the runn- ing and the field events. On the lady's side, there was the always powerful Wendy Seaton, spring pentathlete. She received All-league honors in the winter for high jump and shot put. Dewey also cited runner Mary Jo Wlazlo for her strong contri- bution. On the guys' side, the field events were headed by All- league pole vaulter John Ponzi, and All-league long jumper Dave Ellingwood, and his event partner, John Hastings. Distance runner Rick Angelina was deemed a most valuable asset by his coach. Jeff Cole and Jeff Sheldon also gave reason for hope of success in the hurdle events. Indoor Track is important for the runners. Wlazlo says, "the people that have been out running all winter can do a lot more than the people that haven't." El- lingwood felt that it can be used as a barometer for the spring season. "It showed us how we can do individu- ally against the other com- petitors in the league." is-N un 1 Heather Plank, Mary Jo Wlazlo, Lisa Catalone, and Erin Kerley huddle for warmth, following their winter jog.

Coach Dewey, despite having records set in the sprint relay CHastings, Ponzi, Ellingwood, and An- gelinaj, and in the 1600 meters CAngelinaJ, entered the spring track season cautiously. "We're a young team, inexperienced, we have a few veterans but you have to cover 17 events." Lady Buc Erin Kerley is more optimistic about her success and that of her teammates.

The team sported a 12-7-1 record, with a 7-5 league re- cord, good enough for third place. Second-team All- leaguer Roman was pleased with the team's success. "It's the best record we've had since I've played," said the three-year veteran of the squad. However, Junior Joe Egan, a second-year member, felt that the team's accomplishments were "relatively the same as last year." The team did accomplish some things to be proud of, though. They skated away with a 4-3 overtime victory against powerhouse Ithaca. The skaters also captured the Lake Placid Tourna- Marana WM, propels varsity skaters ment and climbed to sev- enth in the state ranking polls. However the season was dimmed with such set- backs as a loss to Fulton, giving the rival their only victory of the season, a one point loss to West Genesee that kept the Bucs from capturing a second place league finish, and a season- ending loss in the sectionals to Skaneateles. Honors did not escape this year's Seniors. Joining Roman on the Second-team All-league roster was goalie Snyder. Making the First- team All-league squad was Mantaro, who also captured the MVP award in the Lake Placid tournament and reset his points-scored re- cord with 55 points, break- ing last year's mark by three points. Roman set a new mark for most goals scored in a season, with 26, followed closely by Mantaro with 24 goals and 31 assists. Roman and Owens each 2 3135 J Ulf garnered 23 assists apiece, while Snyder maintained an 89? save percentage. Providing a pleasant sur- prise was Jason Guido, who became the first eighth gra- der to score a goal for the Varsity Bucs. It will be these young members of this team, des- cribed by Sears as one of his youngest, withhalf of them not yet Juniors, that will need to further develop for the team's success. Another thing that will be needed is the emergence ofa new corps of leaders to take the place of this year's departing tri- captains, Roman, Mantaro, and Owens. Roman says, "Joe CEganJ and Mike CHer- rerab will be the key because they'll be the only three-year veterans."

Throughout the year, de- bate has centered on whether or not Mr. Joseph Wilbur, Athletic Director, was correct in declaring cheerleading a sport here at OHS. The participants are now excused from their gym classes as a result of this de- 96 Q Out of Bounds cision. "Cheerleading re- quires practice every day and they also have to per- form at games," says Ms. Maroney. The fact that it takes up much of their time and involves gymnastic skills should receive athletic recognition. Ms. Irwin agrees, stating that cheer- leading is also associated with the Athletic depart- ment here at OHS. Cheerleading is not a club because there are tryouts to determine the teams. Also While cheerleading is not re- garded as a competitive ac- tivity, the squads have com- peted in prior years, and have fared reasonably well.

Spams Q .fr to Brothers and sisters work elp is often gained and per- formances im- proved when siblings participate in the same sports. They learn together through sports to become both better athletes and better people. Darren and Trevor Crovitz learned to play soc- cer in England, where it is played nine out of twelve months. "English kids are bred on the game. My ad- venture of playing football with my British peers en- abled my skills to increase in sync," says Darren. Darren's four year record supports this contention. Trevor also made varsity and looks forward to an- other year on the squad. Since they played on the same team throughout the year, there were many op- portunities to encourage each other. They are com- petitive but are very sup- portive also. Darren has been coaching Trevor ever since his little brother joined the sport. This year, Darren led the OHS team in scoring and has set several goals for his little brother to follow. Trevor is not envious of his older brother's im- pressive marks, but instead looks to them with great en- thusiasm and hopes to erase them with his own. After school, in their backyard, Megan and John Hastings spent hours prac- ticing together. This not only reinforced their soccer skills but their sibling re- lationship as well. Megan began playing soc- cer at age nine. She and John participated in the same youth program. This provided some early com- petition for the youngsters. A third member of the family, Sara, began soccer when she saw how much her older brother and sister were enjoying the sport. She says it is hard to live up to the expectations that she feels are held for her be- cause of the accomplish- ments of John and Megan. She will have to work hard, but she says that there is "no serious rivalry," among her and her two older siblings, but more of a "fun teasing type." Their re- lationship does not cause conflicts as would be expec- ted from three siblings in the same sport, but instead helps them as they practice together and exchange help- ful tips and ideas on the sport. Megan laughed as she said of John, "None of his advice has ever helped, but my teachings have made him what he is today." A members of the Varsity Swim teams, Alan and Kim Shenefiel have both been driven to their physical boundaries to excel in a sport which they both love. Kim says she has always loved swimming and it was a great opportunity to sup- port the OHS team and keep in shape. She started at about six months of age and has been enjoying the sport competitively as well as leisurely ever since. "In swimming, as in any sport, you have to take crit- icism. Other people notice your mistakes more frequ- ently than you. If you use their advice in a positive manner, you will un- doubtedly improve, not only as a swimmer, but also as a person." says Kim. She and her brother work together as a team and make constructive com- ments on each other's per- forance. Their love for the sport has been great motiva- tion for both of them. They have also exchanged advice which has helped improve their techniques and subse- quently improved their times considerably. Rahul and Rashmi Seth both became interested in tennis under their dad's in- fluence. She has since shown competitveness in the sport byjoining the var- sity team while still in the eighth grade. She has been displaying her talents ever since. He began as a fresh- man. Since then he has had to work especially hard to compete with his other teammates who had started younger than he. He has since developed the physical and strategic toughness to keep up with the varsity team. "I feel that I am more of a strategic thinker," says Rahul. "My finesse shots have a tendency to win more points than my power strokes? Rahul says that they have both benefitted from each other being in the sport. They both can play each other directly, this can develop good skills and tech- niques. They can also share strategies and plans that Cach finds beneficial during is or her game. "I definitely feel that since we are in the same sport, it has brought improvement in both of our games." Andres and Diego ebaudy share similar ttitudes on and off the ourt or field. Both are re- erved until they step into competition. The two brothers show similar alents on both the tennis ourts and soccer fields. iego says he does not feel .nferior to his older brother, despite losing to him a majority of the time in Eennis. Andres enjoys an dge over his younger Jrother, as he jokes, "I just Evant to always make sure 'rn better than him." Their fespect for each other shows Lhe closeness and the light ieartedness of the revalry etween these two siblings. hey are not extremely com- gmetitive but are encouraging Lowards one another. They iave worked together and iow are reaping the benefits if family teamwork. Usually in a group of two siblings the older influences xhe younger, but in this un- que relationship Rick Lenahan provided the influ- lnce for his older sister, kristina. She practiced at iome but did not start com- oetitively until she joined Vlr. Benjamin's youth soc- :er program. She then went in to play for the middle school team as an eighth grader. Rick's interest in soccer vas mostly provided by his nother as an attempt to keep him active. He began playing in the second grade in the same program as his sister. He played as a part- icipant of the middle school team as well as a member of the JV squad before being promoted to varsity. He cur- rently has plans for another year on the varsity team. Kristina says that Rick and she work together as a team. They often practice in their backyard together and attend each other's games. They often make comments on each other's per- formances and they both try to improve one another's game. Each says they have both gone to their sibling for advice to improve their games. Since these two siblings get along well and work together as a pair it has helped them reach some of their well deserved achie- vements. Through aspiration and desire, hope and downfall these siblings have stuck together as a team. They both encourage each other and are constantly trying to improve each other's games, as well as their own. That's what families are all about - teamwork. Through this aspect they have un- doubtedly obtained some of their biggest "goals".Qby Da1'renNarayan 53,5 ' I T iam M1531 . 4 it 9 ' 1 :fi sl ' . NJS.

They are the ones who will rep- resent the school, and try to make it a better place to learn. Because the un- derclassmen are the largest section of the school population, they have more of an opportuntity to be noticed for their best achievements in academics, sports, and other interests they may have. The underclassmen depend on each other for support in every way possi- ble, and without each other's help, their success would be more difficult to achieve. As the people in this school grow, they learn the ways and values of life. They have the chance to become more acdemically aware, and to ex- pand their horizions to reach life-time goals. As the freshmen enter the school, they sometimes have mixed feelings about being the new people in the school. Freshmen not only are un- aware of how to act, but they are also oblivious to what is expected of them. Through hard work, and constant mo- tivation, they will be able to master the ways of the school. I I The sophomores usually feel relieved from the pressure of being a freshman. Although they are not yet upperclass- men, they are considered a bit more mature than previously. Even though they still have two more years to grow, that one year they spent being a fresh- man prepared them for what is to ahead. Being a junior means opportunity for new experiences, both academic and social. Juniors, although some- times unaware of what they Want, are expected to set goals for their lives both in and out of school. The juniors will do whatever is necessary to achieve their expectations, and get "beyond the limits" in trying to accom- plish them. When the goals have all been reached, and expectations met, they are still underclassmen and everyone, but them, knows it. Underclassmen make up the largest and undoubtedly most significant part of the school. Without their support, and understanding the importance of this school would be greatly dimin- iShed.QbyA'imee Carter and Keri Anderson Underclassmen 4 101 shocked by John Gosek works out weight room. 102 Q Set No Limits 4msswwwn tells her as they head for the James Philips strolls down to lunch.

Since this is their first year in the High School, many go through changes trying to adjust to new ways, new people and new places. However, after a while every- thing starts to fit into place, and everyone gets a chance to prove himself to others. The first few weeks of High School usually seem to be the hardest for most freshmen. Not only do they have trouble finding and getting to their classes, but they are not used to the way things are run. A typical reaction to the initial freshman experience came from Jean Collier, who said, "I was confused at first, but after about a week I knew what I was doing." When asked what his biggest problem in adj u- sting to freshman life was, Scott Regan stated, "Trying to figure out my schedule!" 104 9 Below The Limits The freshmen year is something to look back on, and re- member for always. Looking back, Senior Lisa Santore thought "It's not half as bad as you expect it to be. If you can master the first week, you've got it made. To me it was the best time of my life. It gave me a chance to grow and love." Like most of the memories you make, these will be fond ones. You will reflect on them later and cherish them. This year, the freshmen plan on doing many things in order to raise money for their senior experience. Some of the events planned so far are a pizza pool party, a dance, and, in order to provide some immediate reward to those who put forth the effort to make the freshman year suc- cessful, a trip to Darien Lake. The freshmen are hoping that their efforts will allow them to enjoy an exclusive vac- ation to celebrate their last year in High School. Throughout the year, no matter if successful or not, the freshmen have learned a great deal. While at the same time acquiring a well needed education, they have experienced a part of life that will stay with them forever. These are the times they will look back on, and remember with pride. Over the next three years, these freshmen will grow and learn to become our future seniorsjby Aimee Carter V ' -W5 V 11' , e k"' , xv, , V 5 M 1 r f M f 3: I ff 2 X9 AA f 5 M if A is a , f f ,C , !v I' A I if M Q, M Q Q 5. .QQ 0.124 Q M 1 i is if .

The Junior Prom and the Junior Variety Show are maj or social events of the Junior Class. In opposition are academic responsibilities: college choices, SAT's, Regents, and drugs and alcohol. "The Junior year brings a great deal of stress," according to Junior Class Treasurer Denise Clark. While the acad- emic year itself is difficult, there is more pressure with SAT'S, Regents, and college. Other students agree that along with the prestige involved with being a Junior comes the academic and personal pressure of getting wiser.v 128 Q Set No Limits "The Junior year is also a fun year," said Jennifer Byrd, "Academically, it's harder, but things like the Junior Prom and Junior Variety Show make it worthwhile." According to Barbie Verdoliva, "The Prom and the Junior Variety Show is Csicl a fun learning experience for everyone. How- ever there's a lot of hard Work involved. Even more this year because they are Within a week of each other. Hope- fully it will be a success and make many memories. The Junior Class also sponsored the Annual Food Drive, created to help the needy people everywhere. "The food drive was a good idea, but it doesn't seem to be a success. Not many people are donating things. But it is for a worth- while cause.

"N Class of '89 he Class of 1989 is the first class to be faced with the Re- gents Action Plan. Intened to strengthen high school grad- lates, its conception coincided with a growing public belief that graduates vere not as well educated as they should be. According to Mr. Carpenter, luidance chairman, "the Regents Ac- ,ion Plan not only effects graduation 'equirements, but competency tests or non-Regents classes as well." As a 'esult, more students will face more state examinations than in the past. Some of the requirement changes in- clude a fourth year of social studies, Lplit between Economics and Particip- contends with Regents Plan ation in Government, two years of sci- ence, two years of Math, a year of art or music, and three years of a foreign lan- guage. Oswego High had already adop- ted some ofthese requirements prior to the Regents' action. There is also a pro- vision for two majors, or an extension of a single major, and a five unit major in English or social studies. Negative aspects of the Regents Ac- tion Plan exist as well. One such dis- advantage is that there is less of an op- portunity to take electives. "Students have very little time to take electives after they have fulfilled the require- ments, even if they take an eighth period class," according to Mr. Carpen- ter. Now they must take about eigh- teen classes. Another disadvantage is that students who barely met require- ments before, might not meet them now. There is definitely more academic pressure than before. According to Junior Jennifer Bor- onkay, "I Wish we could take more classes of our choice, instead of being required to take courses which do not interest us and in some cases don't cor- respond with future plans" It is too soon to determine if the Re- gents Action Plan is beneficial or detri- mental to the average student. We will have to wait and seejby Keri Anderson Juniors 4 133 Michele Hall Chris Hammond John Hastings Dawn Hawkins Lacey Henderson Michael Herrera Amy Hibbert Suzanne Hillage Doug Hillman Amy Hilton Kristin Hilton Paul Hinman- Lisa Hollenback Brian Holliday Ken Homik Drew Howland Troy Hyland Kevin Jaskula Jason Johnson Koren Johnson Spencer Johnson William Jones George Joyce Jennifer Jung Shawn Keil Dan Kells Pat Kelly Shawn Kelly Craig Kennedy Dave Ketcham IZA Q Beyond No Limits 'rf 4' W :-gfe'3?rfm 'V L V ,J ' 4' ,,W, ,, 4 A fy.

Mr. Rotolo takes time out from correcting papers. acuity- Teachers break down barriers, erected by their students, every day when they devise new and unique ways to teach their classes. Interesting discussion topics, movies that correlate with and support the subject matter, and new ways to cover a new area all mark teaching. Creativity was found in every depart- ment of Oswego High School. In Spanish classes, teachers assigned gQue Pasa? or "What's Happenin?": five sentences to be read aloud in class, allowing students to discuss everyday occurances in Spanish so that they learned about fellow students as well as the intricacies of the language. In the Humanities program, teachers planned cultural exercises, an archaeologi- cal dig, a trip to Canada's Shakespeare fes- tival, and exposures to folk music and dance forms. Mr. Altman taught his students about lasers and allowed them to create holograms . Outside the classroom, OHS faculty members strove to break their own barriers. Many were involved in furthering their education. Mr. Brumstead worked on his Master's degree in Fishery Biology while Ms. Rapp received a second Master's degree in English. Ms. Jhun took a sabbati- cal leave during the second semester to prepare to teach English as a Second Language next year. Mr. Caldwell, left OHS in January to finish his Educational Administration courses in preparation for 4 K 1 the assistant principal position he hopes to fill in September 1988. Other teachers were involved in a wide variety of sporting events. All of our physi- cal education instructors coached school sport teams throughout the year. Mr. Dewey led his varsity football team to a winning season this past year. Mr. Frawley was a soccer referee for the OHSL and Mr. Bernreuther coached third and fourth grade soccer as well as minor league hockey. A few teachers participated in sports. Mrs. Bonacorsi, Ms. Fragale, Ms. Clarenbach, and Mr. Mirabito all played city league softball. Ms. Hallagan, a competitive racer for several years, placed in the Pan Am trials in the Lightning class division last year, and skied the full 31 miles of the Tug Hill Tourathon. Besides being teachers and participants in various sports, some of our staff were able to maintain another job. Mrs. Pirillo worked for Ontario Services for Education- al and Career Communication. Both Mr. Palange and Mr. Joseph were.played professionally. Mr. Frawley, Mr. Harmony and Mr. Symons all prepared income tax returns during tax season. In the remaining pages of this section, you will be able to see how these teachers worked to break barriers both in and out of the classroom. You may be in for some spe- cial surprisesjby Kim Shenehel Faculty Q 143 Old attendance habits change en the School Board created the new attend- ance policy in August 1986, many teachers and students felt that it would not work. It required students to be in class 88011 of the time to receive credit for that class. This meant that a student could not miss more than 22 days for a full year course, 11 days for a half year. The missed time included all legal excuses as well as the illegal ones. Many felt this would create problems during the peak cold and flu season, and with Seniors who wanted to visit more than the allotted one college visitation, but Mr. Maxon gave his word that he would review each case separately when determining whether a stu- dent should receive credit in the coursefsj in question after missing 11 or 22 days. Problems began to develop with the system in 1986 with teachers being required to send notices home to parents when their child missed more than 6 days of classes. Over the past summer, the school installed a computer system to monitor the attendance for all classes during the day. This created even more prob- lems when it was discovered students were being called down and questioned about their whereabouts a month earlier. "There are def- initely problems with the system. They should have gotten all the bugs out ofthe system before they started making changes. Once they do I think it will be a definite asset to our school." said Ms. Graf. Faculty members aren't the only ones that felt this way. "The policy keeps kids in class, but the punish- ment is too harsh on the good students that happen to get sick. If they have no problem in making up the work, they shouldn't lose the credit for the class." said Junior John Hastings. Many doubts about the policy were cast aside when the school began to break attendance barriors in January of 1987 with 9466 of the school's population attending class throughout the month. This record was nearly four percentage points higher than the highest average be- fore that. With the start of the cur- rent school year, we passed the Sep- tember 1986 mark of 9396 with a new record of 96fZa and new records for October and November with marks of 9592: and 94.2fZn, respectivelyjby Kim Shenefiel.

McCaul had been involved with the Marathon as an official for five or six years prior to his first entrance as a runner this past Fall. "I've always been an avid runner, and running the race was a main goal of mine," says McCaul. Many students, when told of McCaul's run, thought he was joking. "I didn't believe it. I didn't think he could do it!" said Sophomore Ram Mahajan. Others, mainly his track team members, were tot- ally behind him. "I was happy for him. He was fin- Catalone. "A lot of my friends were positive and gave me the support I nee- ded. While I was running the race, there were people five or six deep along the whole route." said McCaul. When millions of sports fans world-wide were speculating on the time it would take the winner to finish, McCaul was only in- terested in finishing. "My original goal was to finish the first half, but after I crossed the first bridge, I decided I was going to run the whole thing." When the race was over, and everyone who would finish had finished, McCaul was number 17,555 of 21,244. "I expected it to be a lot harder, mentally. I knew it would be hard physically because I wasn't as in-shape as I had hoped to be." ally doing what he wanted, and he was determined to finish," said Junior ' Lisa plans in April Linda Jones lp Business A the New York Ciug athon next Fall.

Rarely is there a teacher who be- comes as involved as she. Ms. Irwin has given up her own time through the years to chaperone dances, to be a cheerleading coach and to be a sopho- more class advisor. Ms. Irwin is the kind of teacher a student looks up to and respects. She is everything to students, including a friend. Today it is difficult to have a relationship with a teacher, but Ms. Irwin breaks the barrier between the student and the teacher and makes even personal problems easy to discuss. Ms. Irwin is there for the students both during Irwin earns dedication and after school. Ms. Irwin teaches home economics, a class which includes instruction on clothes, parenting, and food. She makes her classes fun and inter- esting for all the students. Her only bad habit, however, is "testing" all the food her classes make. So, watch out for her ever-present sweet tooth! Besides doing so much with school functions, Ms. Irwin also has a very active social life. She enjoys camping, hiking, and visiting the mountains with her friends. As is apparent, Ms. Irwin travels quite frequently. A very big change in Ms. Irwin's life will soon occur with the arrival of her daughter, whom she is adopting through courts in India. She has named her baby Amanda Beth and is very excited about becoming a mother. One thing Ms. Irwin stresses in life is a close-knit family relation- ship.

"I've always wanted to adopt a child and I'm getting to the stage where if I don't do it now, I never will." said the 31 year old Home Eco- nomics teacher. For several months Irwin re- searched different adoption agencies across the nation. She discovered that the waiting list for a single parent to adopt a white child was six to seven years. It was then that she decided to adopt a foreign child. The agency Irwin chose is located in Georgia. Through the agency, she was able to choose from a variety of countries throughout the world from which to receive a child. When the final decision was made, it was for an Indian child. "I felt that an Indian child would be better accepted in Os- wego than Ca childb from any other country," stated Irwin. Amanda Beth arrived in the U.S. in February in the company of nine other babies and a paid escort. Ac- cording to Miss Irwin, the children must be over seven months old so that the change in pressure would not kill them in the flight over. When asked whether or not the new addition would affect her lifestyle, Irwin said, "I haven't done anything in the past two or three years where I couldn't either take the baby with me or find a baby sitter." Irwin credits family support in helping her make her decision to adopt. "My mother and aunt have really helped give me the support I needed," said Irwin. The general concensus among those who know Miss Irwin has been to support her in her efforts, to rally behind her as well, and to wish her and Amanda all the luck in the fl1lLL1I'e.Qby Kim Shenefiel 5 'K .. . .' -:fx Q.

WSeniors As the school year came to an end, we found our seniors "reaching higher" in their goals. We looked on to the future to find our dreams and expectations become reality. We strove for the success that everyone someday hoped to achieve. But the future can not begin without a past. As our graduat- ing class looked back to our high school years we relived certin memories which could never be forgotten: lthe only freshman class to be told we could fly to the Bahamas for our senior trip, lthe only sophomore class to send black carnations to people We disliked, lthe only junior class to win a Pow- der Puff football game, Www lthe only junior class to go into debt for the prom. lThe only junior class to have an edited Varity Show for only one nite. Last, but certainly not least, is our senior year, possibly the greatest year in anyone's life. We were - lthe first senior class to have an MTV dance. lthe first senior class to lose 20'Zn of its population during the bloodmobile, The list of achievements goes on and on - as it should. After all, this was a fantastic year. We saw our goals accom- plished, and we showed that anything this class sets out to do is, in fact, what we do. After all, we seniors are forever uI'e3.Cl1lI1g hlg'l'lel'."QBy Janelle Preman. Seniors Q 155 Seniors participate in numerous activities he Class of '88, known for its intense school spirit, proved that when it comes to active participation in school activi- ties it could not be beat. The various activities seniors parti- cipated in certainly had a wide range of variety. Because of the large number of girls who played Powder Puff foot- ball, the girls who are now seniors were able to dominate the game in 1986 and in 1987. The Seniors believed they also won because of their hilarious and outrageous cheerleaders. The desire of this class to take pride in OHS was always evident. During Buc Week, at least one-third of the Seniors participated in the daily activi- 4' , S. Tripp, C. Morman, G. Taylor and C. Judd parti- cipate in the Buc Week Parade ties. Every year when the class elections were held, the Class of '88 always had many candidates. The class usually el- ected different officers every year, generating a new set of views and ideas as it went to different advisors. This promoted growth as a class as many of its members were able to function within the group, instead of merely going along for the ride. Fund raisers were an important part of every senior's agenda. A stereo raffle and a spaghetti dinner were the high-lights of the fund raising activi- ties. The funds that were raised helped defray the cost ofthe 1988 senior trip to New York City, where the Class of 1988 had the chance to explore the sights and sounds of the city. Experiences ranged from a Broadway musical to China Town. Looking back, it was truly a worthwhile experience. The ambition and desire to enjoy the school year was definitely a number one priority of this year's seniors. Although they knew how to relax, these same students proved that they knew how to study as well, this being one of the most competitive classes in recent history. Hopefully these same Seniors will carry this intense spirit with them in the following years in college, the Armed Services or workjby E. Norfleet and T. Leotta Seniors S. Welsh, V. Becksted, E.

Ilf Senior Day a success 2 it n Tuesday, November 23, 1987, the OHS Senior class along with the faculty part- icipated in the lst annual Senior Day. Early that morning Sen- iors gathered for a small breakfast buffet which then was followed by comedy skits. The actors who per- formed for the students had previously been seen many times at the Ren- aissance Fair in Sterling, N.Y. The en- tertainment lasted through second period. Starting third period, and continu- ing through the remainder of the day, the faculty's positions were taken over by members of the senior class. Every position was changed, the Principal's CJanelle Premanl, classroom teachers, librarians, and aides. Seniors were ex- pected to teach the courses they chose to with some degree of preparation and 158 Q Reaching higher competence. Of course, the students in each class continued to participate in class activities. By concensus, the day Went very well. Kim Shenefiel, who took the place of Mrs. Morley summed the experience up in one word, "Awe- some" In addition she strongly ex- pressed the desire to have a Senior Day every year, not only for the fun but to give students an idea ofwhat their tea- chers must put up with as well. Mr Runeari collected favorable responses from many teachers who felt that the day could easily be deemed a success. Runeari himself beleived that the day went very smooth without any hangups. It provided a laugh for both "substitute" teachers and students, while giving those seniors who part- icipated a chance to gain some per- o spective from the other side of the d9Sk.Qby Dwayne Narayan 1 Janelle Preman and Megan Hastings become the head of the new administration on Senior Day Chosen for embarassment during the morning entertainment: Keith Martin, Dan Clark, Megan Hastings, and Lisa Herrald ,ff V ff I -- .

Seniors acad- emics are their main concern and purpose in the high school. But there are others who have been successful by placing extra-curricular activities as high as their academics. Success, meaning a trip to Florida to participate in the YMCA swimming nationals, a 10th. place finish in YMCA states, and holding a high school re- cord in the 200 meter relay are among the achievements credited to senior Eric Manale. He began swimming while on a trip to Florida and was taught by his older brother Damon. He did not compete until Sth grade and was not serious about the sport until 9th grade. In 10th grade Eric decided to move onto bigger and better things, including the Cor- tland YMCA swim team. As a sopho- more, Eric set a school record by swimming in a 200 relay. When asked if he prefered swimming in relay or solo, Eric replied, "Swimming is more of an individual sport." Yet, how important are academics? "To me, academics were not important my first three years, but now I realize as a senior how important it is to get into a college." "If I had high school to redo, I'd definitely change my attitude and try to work harder." Eric plans to attend a four year uni- 168 4 Reaching Higher versity in the southern states. He has applied to the University of South Car- olina at Wilmington and upon entrance he hopes to be an outstanding competit- ive swimmer. While disciplining himself as a swimmer he has been preparing himself for the future. "I like to work ten times harder than everyone else." With this attitude Eric plans to go far. Behind every achievement there are those who help contribute to the suc- cess. Having family help is most en- couraging to an athlete. Eric thanks his mother for always being there and being very supportive. Some of his suc- cess also belongs to his brother Damon who he was "always trying to outdo and be better than ." Most of all, Eric thanks his friends who helped him through the rough times, pushed him further and cheered him on. One friend in particular has been most inspiring: "My friendship with Brandy Nettles has always made me work harder. She is very encourag- ing, but also very competitive. In prac- tice she makes me work twice as hard. " Will he ever give up working harder than most students? "The dedication and discipline have made me a better person.

The Paradox discovered be- fore long that out of 100 randomly selected students 45 were employed either full or part time. Students were caught in practically every low paying job known to man- kind. Among the most popular places to Work were grocery and department stores, including Price Chopper, P8zC, Jamesway, Fay's Drugs, and Super Duper. Fast food restaurants were also filled to a significant degree by these senior workers. By mid-January the entire night shift at Burger King had become student workers. Mc Donalds, Friendly's, Arby's, Ponderosa, and, of course, Burger King become known as the most popular fast food restaurants for student workers. In addition to re- tail sales outlets, other places to work that seemed to draw students were areas that benefited the community. The Oswego Hospital, nursing homes, the college, and the city were major employers in the non-profit sector. Together, the members of the senior class employed in the area made a sign- ificant impact upon the business com- munity. Some students found that working and attending school at the same time was extremely challenging. According to Janelle Preman, "It is difficult to balance the two, but it is easier if you think of your job as fun." Other studentsyvere not nearly as optimistic, since they had no other choice but to work. Several explained that they worked for one purpose only, and that was to gain money for college. Finally there were those like Tony Leotta who landed themselves high paying summer construction jobs that kept them rich enough all year to afford items such as the latest technological camera with the works. Whatever the reasons for employment, most students showed enjoyment toward their jobs.

Parents dread it. Teen- agers love it. It's inspired by a sudden and exasperating need for freedom and a carefree feeling ofin- dependence. It's that nerve-tingling knowledge of self-control and deter- mined destiny! Yes! It's thatmfirst car! By the 12th grade most students have obtained a driver's license and have gained a measureable amount of experience behind the wheel. Natur- ally, their thoughts turn to actually owning a vehicle. What is the Udrivingv force behind this sudden desire? Most students feel the need is for an independence from their parents. Tony Leotta, car-owner, says, "freedom of movement. That's it. Going somewhere when and how you want." Others agree. "Dates" claims junior John Belt, "I don't want to have to depend on parents all the time." Although some students receive cars as gifts, most save and buy second hand vehicles. Payments, insurance and fees, however, can impart a heavy toll on the finances, and many seniors have chosen to wait before purchasing that first car. During this year, several OHS stu- dents have had unpleaseant experi- ences with their cars. Both Nick Canale and Jason Mantaro "rolled" their machines: fortunately, Canale's bruised wrist was the only injury. Senior standouts Dick Owens and Mark Diment literally set no limits on the roads, as they tested the enforce- ment of the local posted speed. At any rate, most car-owning seniors.seem to avoid accidents and the police, choos- ing a less thrilling driving experience. Despite the many seniors at OHS, only a small minority own their own ve- hicles.

Megan Hastings participated on the Varsity soccer team, held a class office and worked with the student council in past years. In each of these activities Megan met the demands of time and sacrifice required for success. For her selfless sense of commitment she was often commended by students and tea- chers, alike. Tony Leotta, chosen in January, was actively involved in school activities as a member of the student council, Var- sity Lacrosse squad, and Paradox staff. In the latter, he was Assistant Editor and played a key role in getting the book completed on schedule. By maintaining a part time job at Fay's Drugs, President of the class of 1988, editor of the senior staff of the 1988 Paradox, and a participant in other activities, Janelle Preman earned the award for February. Christopher Nelson, an active part- icipant in Junior Achievement and Student Council, and Editor in Chief of the 1988 Parador was designated to re- ceive the honor in February. In addi- tion, Chris worked nearly the equiva- lent of a full-time week at Price Chopper where his leadership abilities netted him a promotion to the front office. Both Nelson and Preman found themselves in high pressure positions where they were often required to direct their fellow students in a variety of activities. Both were generally suc- cessful in their efforts. These students showed a special quality of getting involved and excel- ling in what they did. The awards were given in hope that others may also get involved and share their talents to make the community a better placelby Dwayne Narayan l i Rick Hogan Sean Lower Timothy Lundy John MacDonald Brandi MacDougall 'YQTN' Terry Machuga Kimberly MacLean Eric Manale Vicki Mangano 25?

Many students volunteered their time and effort during the evening to prepare and serve the dinner to more than 100 guests. Before the main course was served, a salad bar was offered , fol- lowed by the ever popular sherbet for dessert. Mr Runeari's "Very well", says it all concerning how the the evening proceeded. The ease with which the evening preceded was due in part to master chef Steve Maurtus and his ever faithful assistant Val Beckstead. All of those that attended the dinner were obliged to eat as much as they could. How- ever, the class made sure to announce to all of the hardy diners that NutraSystem had an operation available in Syracusefllhe meal was a giant crowd pleaser and enjoyed by many. Q Behind the walls of the kitchen, however, things were much more hectic - but no less fun. Chris Nelson and Chip Gerber were deeply involved in eating as much multicolored sherbet as they could find. Darren Crovitz was earning a degree in carrot peeling and slic- ing. Rhonda King was busy keeping the hot water hot and the cold water separate from the hot. Kim Shene- fiel kept a particularly well organized fresh salad bar. She did, however, complain about Darren's ability to cut carrots, when she exclaimed, "People have to eat these." And lastly, who could forget Eben Norfleet, the man with the power, who kept everything under con- trol when those dirty dishes came piling injby Dwayne Narayan Kim Shenefiel didn't let anyone mess with her salad bar. , f -1 ii ff., " 'mlfz lm K ,, , fnffw ' My ,' Sean Ohnmacht Amy O'Neil Richard Owens Susan Owen Kim Oyer it iiy li it ,- i .W J 4 f' :'i" ,l5' Andrea Parker Tracey Patrick Jennifer Patterson Priscilla Peeling Shannon Peeling Seniors Q 177 A ' K 4' JM A 2 A' ' 5' P f I 4 f' - ' 'Q-I ,J aw ' 491' P 4' " , V 1 1 A 1 , 6, A ,fi 'Q for Z W Q WZ, " 'alm finc .ri g i ?,, .,,L Z mn J ,p m Q R enee Pelkey Robin Pelt ll. el PM 'guy ,Q H ' ,,, 23 ' l " V fii , , h A , ialrr if .J Theresa Penfield Donald Pepper Christopher Perkins Teresa Readling tells how good the sa 1 t.. ln to his fp' X ohh eng Andrea Parker Sam Dirk and Jeff Martin in early senioritis U Scott Symons concentrates on a chess game Matthew Perry Shawn Piazza Kenneth Pitcher Brenda Pitsley Eric Pollard 178 4 Reaching Higher ii it anon..

Qi as n Q. ra na Ss'n1'nrs Q 179 Jason Wallace Sz his truck o say the least, Jason Wallace is a very active guy. He has held down a full course load during his senior year and played three varsity sports. A popular person who emcee'd the Variety Show in his junior year, most students can recognize him by his full growth of beard and his muscular stature. One of Jason's most prized possessions, however, is not any sports or extra-curricular award. It is his leg- endary truck. Most upperclassmen, if not the entire student body, have heard of Wallace's supervehicle. Jason is modest about neither his truck's features nor its speed and power. "It's one ofa kind. It's great!", he claims. "The Truck" itself is a black 1978 GMC Sierra Grande pick- up which Jason has owned for about 2 years and affectionately calls "Black Magic." When not loudly and eagerly detailing one of his truck's amazing feats Cfor instance, cruisin' down Bridge St. with 22 people on board...J, Jason constantly and laboriously keeps his vehicle clean and washed. Although he admits to a little rust on the body fthe truck's, that isl, Wallace is quick to point out the custom bucket seats, spotless interior, and tremen- dous horse-power engine. "It'll beat anything in town, and it's got class!" he proclaims, and not many doubt it. What does the OHS student populace think about "The Truck?" "He talks about it so much, he probably sleeps with it", says Junior Victor Martin. Ac- cording to Senior Andres Lebaudy, 1 I 'Q Jason Wallace takes a break from a more than busy schedule. Wallace "lives for his truck." If these testamonials seem far-fetched to you, then you haven't met Jason Wallace. Many compare his pride and love for his truck to a father's pride for his son. Students have even wondered if J ason's preoccupation with his vehicle has interfered with his love-life. On the contrary, he maintains that his dates love his mean machine. In a serious! light, however, Jason does not believe that his truck is an obsession. "It's the greatest thing, but I don't go that far" he says. When Jason talks about his truck, he does so in a voice full of pride and em- otion. It is this devotion to his vehicle which deserves. respect, for it is rare that we encounter anyone who devotes this much energy and vitality to a pos- session. Whether we set no limits on the high- way, in the classroom, or on the playin field, Jason and his truck can serve a useful ideals for all of us. So, the nex time you're lucky enough to glimpse "The Truck" as it cruises throug town, stand back and wish that yo had a vehicle with half as much class a that 0He.,by Darren Crovitz V ' Rez.-lf.. firr JAIJJV. - ",' Kristen Reed Lyman Reed Tammy Regan Kathy Rice Scott Richardson l. .1 Melissa Rockwell Michael Rodgers Mary Jane Rollin Thomas Roman Jeffery Romanowski 180 Q Reaching higher Q ,,,,,..........p--f-5. .,..---v VDD' aw Robin Pelton catches the lastest in sports news.

Several changes have occured since that decade began, among them, are the names of newborn males and females. It is obvious that names change over periods of time. If one takes the time to observe this, it is evident that men in their thirties have names such as Robert, Michael, James, and John. Similarly men ten years younger are commonly found with these same names along with David. For women in their thirties, you might find Linda, Mary, Patricia, and Susan several times over. When one glances at women in their twenties the names Mary, Deborah, Karen, and Susan are re- vealed. The popular names are evident in our class: Kim, Mike, Lisa, Jennifer. How many of these do you know? We will probably look back thirty years from now and wonder what happened to the good old names when we see the names of the future generation. VWth names like Brittany and Brandon in style now, it is impossible to even begin to predict what the future will Sl1OW.Qby Dwayne Narayan 'Q Klms Sz Shenefielz two of several Klms S Zyx , E N x i Sarah Stock Frank Struallo Rebecca Sullivan Dawn Susino Peter Sweeney 184 4 Seniors iffy Bridget Swiech Scott Symons Virginia Taylor Michele Thompson Harold Thorpe, III Lisa for example, 4-audi ww or the "John" in John Desantis.

Everyone seems to ask, "What do we do with them?" They have more time on their hands than a homocidal maniac ser- ving 17 consecutive life sentences at Attica. How many times have you seen one of those seniors walk through the halls in the middle ofthe day looking as though he owned the place? They are constantly looking for a place to go. CBelieve me, many teachers would just love to tell them where to go, but that is besides the point.D The first place that comes to mind when one looks for a place for seniors to spend their leisure time is the library. Let's be real here. How many seniors actually find themselves in the library without giving Ms. Tyner a coronary? After the library, the next place that they can go to relax is the cafeteria, but that option is darkened every lunch period when every inconsiderate un- derclassman in the school storms the place looking for food. It is, however, the only place that serves refresh- 1864 Reaching Higher ments. Moving on, the corridors seem like a relaxing area to spend extra time during the school day. There are some advantages here in that it provides one of the few places outside of classrooms where you can actually get a glimpse of the outside world. It also allows them to read something that they almost never even look at...the monitors. Speaking of monitors, brings us to our next problem. The hall monitors, who try to keep track of seniors, just won't leave passers-by and those just enjoying their leisure time alone. They almost always ask, "Where are you sup- posed to be?" But, let's be reasonable. If they had a place to go then they would probably be there. That completes the circle and brings us to our starting point. It seems as though we've accomplished nothing. Needless to say, seniors with abundant time will continue to roam the building like Biblical nomads. Look on the bright side, anything beats four con- secutive study halls.Qby Dwayne Narayan Randy McFarland looks over his shoulder in the library.

Griffin 1941-1987 Frank J. Ruggio 1944-1988 What a time we've had! or many of us our stay is over at O.H.S., and the times we will remember will probably not just include the activities at the school. This year was full of events from around the world. In the Middle East there was turmoil, along with the fight over Aparthied in South Africa. The United States, under the leadership of President Ronald Reagan tried to stay neutral in these areas while maintianing the atitude that we will not be known as a weak nation. We have kept our presence in other areas in the world by sending aid to the Contras in Central America and our naval support to the unstable Persian Gulf, even as revolutionary forces seemed on the verge of overwhelming the cautious U.S. approach in Panama and elsewhere in the world. The world was not all warlike this past year. The 15th Winter Olympic Games were held in Calgary, Alberta. The U.S. athletes took two golds, in speed skating and figure skating. Over all, our team did not enjoy their best Olympics in history with the Russians and Germans again dominating most of the events. In world politics, the U.S. and Russia continued to have summits and struck many deals, including a plan to pull short range nuclear missles out of Europe. Nationally, it was a year of scandals and chaos. With President Reagan serving his last term as President, the race for the position has been fierce. Gary Hart had his campaign destroyed when it was found that he had an extra-marital affair. He dropped out of the race in May, only to return in the fall, saying, "Let the people decide!" This new campaign did not help his reputation so he dropped out of the race for good after losing by a large margin in the first few primaries. The scandal of George Bush's involvement in the Contra arms deal seemed not to hurt his compaign. By mid-March he appeared to have the Republican nomination locked up. On the economic scene, the U.S. experienced a roller- coaster ride for most of the year. The Dow-Jones In- dustrial Stock Average reached its highest point and ex- perienced its biggest crash all within a few months. This unpredictable market lead economists to predict sluggish consumer spending and higher unemployment. The only problem was - no one bothered to tell the consumers! The sports world also had its problems. The National Football League CNFLJ, had a players strike in the middle of the year over the subject of free agency. This strike las- ted for three weeks C2 gamesj until the players gave up and returned to play. The Washington Redskins went on to win the Super Bowl, defeating the Denver Broncos by a score of 44-10. This win kept the League Trophy in the NFC East division for the third year in a row. fContimted, P- 2042 TjAR!"'t"'j is Q. O it lla- w ' Q .1 ililvim - . , . u O Q Q ' in ' Q ,-. 0. we .. . M..

M., There is "No Limit" to change. ver the year O.H.S. students have noticed many changes in the City of Oswego. , Last fall the Ames Plaza opened along with Arby's and the Fashion Bug. Students also saw the ground break for such businesses as Red Lob- ster, Dunk'in Donuts, Taco Bell, and the new Fay's. These new places offered new opportunities for OHS teens and their parents to spend their money and op- ened new areas of employment. The Common Council of Oswego also planned for change. With the completion of the Westside water front new plans for the east side were annouced. The front would include a linear park, viewing stations, a fishermen's pier and a boat landing. The Federal government also began construction on a new post office located on West First Streetjust below the Utica Street bridge. The building should be comple- ted late in August of 1988. All the citizens of Oswego saw the election of our new mayor. There were four major contenders for the office and their platforms all contained change. John Sul- livan won by a large margin, promising the extension of Route 481 into Oswego and a program which would include the opinions of Oswego's young people in his de- cisions in office. The Nine Mile Point nuclear power plant finally went into operation this year. This plant, located just out- side the city in Scriba, was the most exspensive plant ever built in the world. The plant was to open better than ten years ago and went billions of dollars over budget. To this day it is plagued by operating problems.

K 1 seems, Sig if Jason Noel was at the head of the line for lunch. Closing Q 207 We've kept our promise. n May of 1987, Mr Harmony and Mr Myles, the advisers of The Paradox, appoached me and asked if I would like to be the Editor-in-Chief of the 1988 Paradox. They explained to me that this position would take a great deal of time and de- dication. The yearbook was coming off of two years of late deliveries of poor quality books, and they felt I would be able to reverse this trend and deliver the best book the school had ever seen. Honored by their proposal, I accepted the challenge. My duties began that spring during the construction of the Spring Scene '87. I worked with a staff of about six- teen students. Most, including myself, had little or no experience in creating a yearbook, but we were motivated by the fact that it was our book and it could not be as bad as the previous books. Then-Juniors Dwayne Narayan, John DeSantis, Kim Shenefiel and Eben Norfleet worked hard and put many hours into the first yearbook supplement consisting of 24 pages. We covered all the spring sports, student activities and Senior functions within the last few months of school. As the proofs returned I realized how much talent I was dealing with and I began believing that we could be a great infu- ence on future issues. Michael Nelson, Staff Artist, winner of the nat- ional editorial cartoonist contestf 208 4 Closing Summer passed and soon school began again. Dwayne, John, Kim, and Eben returned to the staff along with senior newcomers Tony Leotta and Janelle Preman. We began working at the same pace as we did during the pre- vious spring of many weeks until we realized it was more than a 24 page in- sert, it was a 216 page giant. We picked up our pace and for the first time in many years an OHS yearbook staff met its first deadline. The second came and it too was met. By the third some of us began to slack off. Tony Leotta, on the other hand, began working like a mad man to fulfill not only his deadlines, but the deadlines of others too. His ded- ication reinspired the whole staff and even staffers who had become nearly invisible turned in at least one spread. We finished the year making all our deadlines on time and even made some early. Now that the book is completed I would like to thank the following people: bMr. Harmony for letting my staff and I experiment and try new ideas in this book. bMr. Myles for staying after school with us so we could have extra time to make those deadlines we almost missed. bTony Leotta for the creative copy and layouts which you worked so hard on to put a variety in this book. hi. . . 56-exam-as , E A full house in the yearbook office, a common "site" this year. PJohn DeSantis for covering the whole sports section with little staff to help you. PDarren Crovitz for moving from section to section writing the stories we needed. bKeri Anderson and Jackie Ruch for covering the underclass section when the editor left. PDwayne Narayan and Janelle Pre- man for putting a variety of stories in the senior section which included polls and features. PDarren Narayan for being in the office when anyone needed to hit on someone. Also thanks for being a good sport about it. bDavid Shepard and Tony Leotta for taking the photos we needed for all the sections no matter how short the notice. PML Maxon and the whole faculty for your help and cooperation to let us dig for the stories we needed for the year- book. ,Finally I thank everone who stood by me and was supportive of my staff during the past year. I hope that everyone who reads this book recaptures the times we had dur- ing the 1987-88 school year. Christopher D. Nelson Editor in Chief, 1.988 Paradox 'v Academics Editor Tony Leotta wants you tc enjoy this book. COLOPHO he 65th volume ofthe an- nual publication, Pax- adox was distributed in June of 1988. The Par- adox was written by the students of the Oswego High School year- book staff led by Editor-in-Chief Christopher Nelson. It was prin- ted by the Hunter Publishing Company, Winston Salem, N.C. for the third year in a row, and five of the past six years. Pub1isher's Re- presentative was Eric Ludemann. The book consisted of 216 pages of which eight were process spot color and eight were four-color. The text style was written in Cen- tury. The book contained six main sections which included Acad- emics, Sports, Underclass, Stu- dent Life, Faculty and Seniors. The black and white candid photos were taken by the students and were developed by Varden Studios Inc. of Syracuse, New York. Color photographs were taken by students and were dev- eloped by Industrial Color Labs, Inc. of Syracuse and Skrudland Photos, Inc. of Hebron, Illinois.

Oswego has a student popula- tion of about 1600. It is one of two high schools in Oswego, a city of 23,000 which is located about 45 miles north of the city of Syr- acuse. Dwayne Narayan, Senior Editor, is caught off guard. Darren Crovitz reviews his copy for an upcoming deadline. Christopher Nelson, smiles at the thought of a finished yearbook. Closing Q 20.9 A.
