Bravo, Gals! tsy Debbie Gallion Friday night's gamewith Bolivar was exciting, stupendous, and superlative - not only because our team played a great game, but because of the unparalleled enthusiasm of our pep club, cheerleaders,and all other Marshfield supporters! The rousing spirit shownby

our cheerleadersand pepsquad was the best I have eyer seenor shouldI sayheard. Throughout the game our gals kept up a steady stream of encouragement which not only showed that we were proud of our team, but also spurred our players on. Excitement and enthusiasm were at a high pitch even on t}te pep club bus before the game. By the time we arrived at Bolivar, the girlswereready for anything. As soon as the game started, it was evident that our team was ready, too. Throughout the exciting game, the cheering section and the team seemed to give each other energy and drive. We shouted encouragement to the boys, and they dug in. At the results of their efforts, we cheeredevenmore. Students at our football games have often been chided about their lack of schoolspirit. But never have I seen such support for our football team. -MH9

The try for the exka point rryas also good, which broughtthe final score to 13-6. Jim Hartnan, all conference running back who slightiy injured his elbow in the final minutes of the game, will be back in good form after a couple of days lay-off.Hartnan led the offensive attack for the Jays with 84 yards rushing in 19 carries.
