Wrestling, one of the most active
sports, shared the spotlight in
Ftoyal PaIm's activities. The sport
itself being very active requires
faithful practice every day. After
school the boys could be seen
practicing different winning holds
on blue mats.
This year's Raider team, under
Coach Jack Gatland and Assis-
tant coach Jerry Silvers, attribut-
ed the group's success to good
conditioning and desire.

Student Council, with the commendable guidance of Ms. Nancy Oliveri, outdid themselves this year. President
David Jackson or Vice President Jamie Wynn could be heard each day reading the announcements. The group
sponsored a pumpkin carving contest among homerooms and later donated the jack-o-lanterns. Council decorat-
ed the lovely Christmas tree in the cafeteria and a canned food drive for the United Methodist Church was a big
success. Student Council initiated a contest to redesign the Raider mascot and Akmarina Prak won S25 for his
outstanding drawing which was painted and displayed in the new gym. Valentine Grams and carnations were a
highlight of the late winter season. The Raider store sold bookcovers, pencils and pens, pennants and buttons,
bringing much needed funds into the Council treasury. Spirit week brought out a lot of crazy outfits and generated
enthusiasm for students and teachers alike. lt was a great year!

The yearbook essentially is a picture story of the school year. The Raider staff spent many hours after school
identifying pictures, writing copy, preparing layouts and writing receipts for presale books. With deadlines to
meet, it took concerted effort from all. This year's staff did an excellent job.

THERE 'S ZIP IN THEIR AIRS!
Wonderful is the word for
the Raider bands which

reputation as the dis-
trict's finest. The smooth
piaying band wowed the
