Charles E. Chapman President

TO THE CLASS OF 1972: You have completed your studies at Cuyahoga Community College and now will take divergent paths in a world that is constantly and rapidly changing. You will have a hand in that change, for each of us, in different ways, feels a need to change things for the better. As students here, you have had experience with change --a curriculum that has undergone change, changes in educational materials and, perhaps, a change in your attitudes, intere sts and the way you view the world. This experience with change has, in itself, been a part of your education not listed in any college catalogue or class schedule booklet. Some of you have been prepared for a field of occupational endeavor. Some of you will transfer to senior institutions to further your educations. All of you leave the College better prepared to assume meaningful roles as individuals, and to make important contributions to the betterment of tomorrow's world. We - - the Board of Trustees, the faculty and staff - - are proud of you. You take with you our very best wishes . Charles E. Chapman President

basketball the 1971-72 cougars of metro completed the greatest basketball season in its short history. winning the turnpike athletic conference championship, the state championship, and the monroe invitational classic championship. the fighting cougars compiled an outstanding 23-4 season, while competing against most of the top junior college teams in the country. in fact, the cougars played ten (10) of the top twenty (20) teams in the country. winning eight (8) of the ten (10) games.


james nixon became metro's first basketball all- american, and established the two year scoring record of 1208 points; averging 24 points per game to establish another record. leo white, homer lacey, robert tate, and james nixon made the t. a. c. all- conference team. don wilson, harold jordon, and corney jackson also had outstanding seasons.

after long being considered a mediocre entry in the turnpike athletic conference and the region, the cuyahoga community college baseball team of 1971 (won 10 lost 10) served notice it was a team to be reckoned with in the future. in 1972 the team posted an 11 won 6 lost record (ten cancellations due to inclement weather), and lost out of conference championship and the right to represent the conference in the regional play-offs by one (1) game, in a ball game played in a constant downpour of rain from the opening pitch to the end. the freshman pitching corp included david connors, Ofk-cleve.), who had a record of 3 wins, 0 losses, 1 save, and an era of 0.62. jim fitzgerald, (walsh jesiut-canton), a fireballing right-hander. dennis markiewicz, (holy name-cleve.), a fine young pitcher, and ken jefferson (glenville-cleve.) a right-hander who has the tools for greatness. other outstanding freshmen were second baseman sergio andujar, (east tech and viet nam veteran). short- stop burt herron (war-

rensville heights. ) outfielders matt smith (st. edwards-cleve.) and james lewis (glenvillecleve. ) the sophmore pitching corp consisted of david moore, (cleve. -east), outstanding pitcher of 1971, and tom maran (chagrin falls), who was the leader of the pitching corp for two years. the team leaders for two years were catcher ronell hannah (glenville-cleve.) and robert kraska (west tech). hannah was the mvp in 1971 and shared the award with kraska in 1972. hannah signed a contract at the end of the 1972 season, along with a former cougar larry jackson (1970-71), to play in the cleveland indians organization. other outstanding sophmores were outfielders gary corsi (garfield heights), one of the finest all-around ball players in the region, and luther thomas (glenville-cleve.), a speedster with a rifle- shot arm. infielders-third baseman charles stout (collinwood-cleve.) and elmer bisler garfield), catcher and outfielder.


metro's wrestling team posted a 7 won - 4 lost record for the 1971-72 season. the cougars started the season by defeating the 1970 national champions, muskegon community college, 27-12. other highlights during the dual meet season were beating behrend college 42-3 and setting a school record by defeating malone college 46-3. in tourr-ament action, metro's wrestling team also showed tremendous power. the courgars placed second in t. a. c. (turnpike athletic conference) raleigh clemons, pat malloy and eli whitten were conference champions and bob calevich and virgil wilcox were t. a. c. runner-ups. in the region xii tournament, metro qualified three wrestlers (pat malloy, bob calevich and raleigh clemons) for the junior college national tournament held in worghington, minnesota. at the national tournament the courga wrestling squad scored ten pOints with raleigh clemons placing sixth in the nation.


during the school year of 1970, gymnastics began at cuyahoga community college as a club and was sponsored by the intramural department. in the fall of 1971, gymnastics became a varsity

sport. the team competed both home and away in dual, triangular and invitational meets. the mainstays of the first team were willie jones and john pesek who placed in the all-around competition in every meet they attended. mike wallace performed on the sidehorse and still rings. geoffrey franklin was the manager.

CCC Varsity Tennis came of age this year with a 5 and 5 season. Among its victories CCC Metro counted Beaver Community College, Sumpter, S. C., KSU, New Philadelphia Branch, and Mt. Vernon Nazarene College. Lakeland Community College took two close matches from Metro, both scores

5-4. Ruturning from last year, TAC Doubles Champions, Berman Johnson and Leon Pitts, joined with a second strong doubles team of Larry Pitts and Bill Sandercock to give Metro plenty of depth in doubles competition.

Berman Johnson also supplied plenty of steady singles competition. Bill Sandercock showed the most improvement in the singles department and was able to finish the season as Metro's number two singles player. Don Dacone, John Smith and Louis J ones all showed good improvement during the season.

fencing club

members of the ballestra lungers fencing club and team left to right: 1st row, mary de' orio, sandra morehead, cynthia settles, cyndi kniola, 2nd row, eddie cellis, maurice curlee, horace shaw, roosevelt james, 3rd row, lucius peterson, jim fazekas, ted darden.

the ballestra lungers fencing team & club have been very active during the academic year '71-72'. the lungers competition consisted of area colleges throughout the state of ohio: bowling green fencing team cleveland state kent state western reserve oberlin college II





during the academic year '71-72', the lungers gave approximately 50 to 75 fencing exhibitions for public and private schools in and out of the state of ohio. the lungers have taken an oath to promote fencing as well as gain ultimate recognition for tri - c. horace shaw, presently president of the lungers and student at tri-c, has gained national recognition in competition fencing. mr. shaw is also captain of the lungers fencing team. ms. joyce deshazo, present advisor of the lungers, is a former graduate of tri - c and placed first in competitive fencing in northern ohio. ms. deshazo forsees nothing less than the best for the lungers for the academic year '72-73'.


our physical education and recreation facilities were completed during the 1969-70 school y ear and surely rank high among those available to any community college in the nation.

several objectives and guiding principles give direction to the staff in our efforts to be of ma ximum service to the students . they are as follows:

educators everywhere are becoming increasingly aware of the deep and fundamental contribution being m ade by the intra mural activities program. those of us in the physical education and athletic department are dedicated to making democracy in sports a reality, by offering and planning the kinds of recreational activities you desire.
