eyond the intense college preparatory atmosphere which permeates the halls of La Salle as an academic institution, there is a lot that defines La Salle. While the immediate and perhaps valid assertions that "we have the best sports teams" or "the most advanced computer center" may or may not be the case, there really is something else that makes La Salle very special: an overwhelming sense of pride present within the school. Who doesn't feel pride when hearing the Alma Mater, receiving applause for academic letters, earning a National Merit Scholarship, or watching one of our sports teams win it all? Or who wasn't affected when Mr. Fitzgerald spoke at his wife's Mass, displaying the sort of courage you couldn't help but feel proud of? Asking a visitor to define what makes our school distinctive might very likely prompt a response of surprise as to how much pride there really is here. And even though many of the students might initially doubt it, think about it. Are there any seniors who much as they denied any possibility of it ever happening upon arriving here freshman year - aren't proud, really proud of La Salle? The feeling is so pervasive here that at this year's graduation, in addition to the obvious sadness and anxiety, there will be evident a great pride in what the school community has managed to accomplish these past four years. How about the underclassmen? The short time the freshmen have been here has been enough to form friendships among students and relationships with teachers - the kind that make you proud to go here. The sophomores and juniors, too, are a large part in making La Salle what it is, in both an academic and a communal sense. It is a time for pride. Different kinds of pride, which vary with each individual and accomplishment, but which work together to make La Salle a great school community. Academic pride. Each of us has had our struggles in getting that report done on time or bringing that "B" up to an "A." Or studying for next week's "impossible" geometry test. Or getting Beowulf read by tomorrow. The La Salle academic experience, unique to each student, somehow transcends each individual to a higher, common plane. All of us are proud of our

accomplishments inside the classroom. Extracurricular pride. Be it the short-lived rivalry between the Wisterian and the Explorer Extra (underclassmen, don't ask), the legendary feats of the La Salle forensics club, or the positively amazing achievements of various sports teams here throughout the last few years, every student has some story to tell about what they've managed to do outside of class. There's nothing wrong with pride in these accomplishments, either, and the fact that so many students participate in so many varied activities - from ice hockey to the Latin Club to lacrosse to La Salle's recently-launched television studio, WEXP - is a true testament to the pride and self-satisfaction many of us feel towards our respective clubs and organizations. And how about pride in each other? The sports teams, for example, work hard all year together, and, whether they win that PCL championship or not, every player forms an irrevocable bond with his teammates. If sports aren't your cup of tea, know that forum members rejoice when others have spoken eloquently or debated strongly. And who isn't happy for that other guy who gets accepted to the school of his dreams? Just being at La Salle creates a special kind of attachment among students that people always say is so lacking at many other places - the cheering at the pep rallies and the morning congratulations in the halls really exemplify the type of pride that La Salle students feel for one another. And last but certainly not least is school pride. Like it or not (and, really, who doesn't?), La Salle truly is a tight group of faculty and students - but beyond that, La Salle is a community. Whether it's seven PCL championships or fourteen National Merit Seminfinalists that we are celebrating, there's a sense here

that when some of us accomplish an extraordinary act or strive to improve something about ourselves, the institution itself benefits. That's what makes La Salle special: there's a real pride here not only among the students but for the school, a real feeling that it's not" every man for himself" but a true fellowship through which we better this place. This pride, though, goes beyond mere competition with other schools. The fact that the alumni community prospers as it does indicates something far greater - that this pride will likely be carried with us in all of our upcoming challenges and struggles, and that we will never outgrow our La Salle pride. Our four years here leave us with a sense of belonging that doesn't dissipate with time and a sense of brotherhood that we will possess no matter where our lives go. There's a real feeling here that the seniors care what's going to happen next year - and the year after that. How will the football team do? What will the student council do next? Will we always have this level of reliability within the computer center? In reality, "La Salle pride" can't be defined or limited. When we leave La Salle - and, believe it or not, freshmen, it comes fairly quickly-we won't physically be attending classes, filling our lockers up with junk, or practicing for next week's game. But the "blue and gold" pride we have all experienced will forever be with us as alumni. After the members of the class of 1998 graduate, La Salle will not be the same. Many personalities and memories will have moved on to other things. But, at the graduation ceremony, as each senior receives his diploma, he will experience a moment that embodies the four years of happiness and hardships. It is one instance where a student truly is La Salle. It is one of many Lasallian defining experiences - perhaps even the most special of them - and, above all, it is a time of pride.

Dedication: La Salle s

Mr. William Geiger

16


Renaissance Man

"R teacher can neuer tell where his influence stops." Mr. William Geiger embodies this saying, which defines the profound effect he has on La Salle and on those around him. He exemplifies the teachings of St. Jean Baptiste de La Salle. Always one to keep his cool in the most tense of moments, Mr. Geiger teaches by example. We, the students, appreciate his incomparable, laid-back approach, which makes learning easy and fun. We welcome his directness and the sense of humor which brightens a room with laughter and sprinkles it with puns. We are thankful for his encouragement. We appreciate Mr. Geiger's devotion to our after-school life as well. He has willingly agreed to moderate a revival of the Latin Club. He has helped us build boats for the Recyclable Regatta, develop photos in the darkroom, put the finishing touches on a beautiful layout for the yearbook, and ready our work for the Gazebo. Bill Geiger, a La Salle graduate and a former McDonald's fry-guy, is a man of wide-ranging interests--the environment, classics, journalism, cinema, .photography, tennis. He generously shares those interests with others, whether it's teaching Latin, Environmental Science or Writing; advising the photographers for the Blue and Gold; discussing the merits of recent movies; or dueling with Mr. Russell on the tennis courts. We wish to thank Mr. Geiger for his devotion to learning, to La Salle, and especially to us, his students. And finally, for his years of dedication to the yearbook, we, the staff of the Yearbook, dedicate the 1998 Blue and Gold to William Geiger.

La Salle's Higher Educators I

t seems only appropriate that any discussion of La Salle pride open with the unique team of faculty and administrators that make up the stimulating academic environment within the LaSalle classroom. The very definition of the La Salle experience comes through these men and women who have dedicated their lives to Lasallian education. There could be no AP. English without the effort of Dr. Joseph D' Angelo to pull it together. Fine Arts Survey would not exist were it not for the talents of Ms. Melissa Centofante. It's hard to imagine Calculus without Mr. James Roche or Mr. Joseph Radvansky; Mr. Timothy Stopper's leadership of the Chorus class has led to seven La Salle All-Catholic Chorus members - out of seven auditions. Without such commitment and loyalty, on the part of the La Salle teaching community as a whole, a La Salle education would not be so special. The LaSalle experience would be noteworthy if only for what these educators do within the classroom, but any student will testify to Mr. Joseph Colistra's work with the football team or Mr. Joseph Dempsey's occasionally chaotic but always fun leadership of WEXP (along with, of course, his legendary basketball coaching skills) or to the expertise that other teachers who happen to coach or moderate during their "free" time lend to LaSalle student life. To say that teachers at LaSalle are the top of their fields is true, but to ignore their other abilities (demonstrated each day for clubs and sports of every kind) would be unfair. They are a diverse, multitalented group who contribute positively to high school life. It is indeed a time of pride! That pride is easy to see - of the students for their teachers, and of the teachers from their students. And the pride will continue long after we all have left LaSalle, thanks to the excellence and devotion of the teachers who define the LaSallian experience.

Educator of the Year Basically, He's the Man

Mr. Nicholas Coggins

A

genuinely talented teacher who inspires so much more than a love for Spanish in his students, Mr. Nicholas Coggins is a natural choice for "Educator of the Year." Since arriving in the Lasallian community in 1992, he's found time to helm the Ski and Spanish Clubs and moderate the sophomores on Student Council in addition to his duties as a foreign language teacher. Mr. Coggins' aptitude and skill in teaching Spanish are almost unparalleled. He's a great teacher who conveys the material he covers in a manner that's always clear and understandable. No one who enters Mr. Coggins' classroom leaves without a wealth of knowledge, not just about the Spanish language, but about the Spanish and Latin American cultures and lifestyles as well. Mr. Coggins also knows how to connect with his students. Rarely does a week go by without one of his famous skiing stories or account of an amazing mountain biking exploit. His always friendly attitude and down-toearth personality give him the tremendous ability to relate to his classes, and it is easy to see why he's one of the most popular teachers at La Salle. Mr. Coggins' selection as "Lasallian Educator of the Year" only confirms what the many he's taught already know: he's a great Spanish teacher, an amicable person, and a true asset to the school community.

Underclassmen LaSalle's Foundation

I

t won't be long until the freshmen who arrived in September, not knowing the directions to the swimming pool, the location of room 120, or the proper fry-buying procedure, will be leaving, going on to college. As the days and months march by, even less time remains for the sophomores and juniors, whose seriousness in preparation for college grows at an exponential rate. But as all underclassmen prepare for the inevitable day of acceptances and rejections, and the ultimate choice-where to from here?some retrospect over the last nine months seems in order. A year of education. Freshmen learning that there's no "getting by" without doing homework, sophomores discovering the value of regular study, and juniors trying to get good grades onto their transcripts in order to make up for the last two years-along with, of course, appropriate advances in knowledge of math, science, history, and foreign languages. A year of frustration. Juniors on the varsity football team, doing so well-until the heartbreaking loss in the first round of the playoffs. Students trying, trying for that "A" in Spanish-and naught but a "B" to show for it. The Odyssey isn't quite as "easy" as you thought it might be. A year of elation. How else to describe the freshmen cross country team's Catholic League victory? Or making the basketball team when you weren't sure you could? Or just getting first honors when you weren't sure you could pull that 3.5? A year of hard work and dedication, commitment and celebration; a year of pride. And they'll be back next year, trying, once again.

"Boy, this sure beats Calculus." "Da do run run, da do run run ..."

Activities Not Just Any Daily Grind

L

a Salle's pride doesn't end with a mad rush off campus at 2:10 each day. Many students have discovered that the extracurricular activities La Salle offers provide some of the best ways to enjoy the high school experience. The sheer number and variety of these activities mean that there really is something for everyone. While we often focus on those activities requiring athletic prowess, these other activities, although requiring less physical emphasis, serve to provide a balance to the life of the average La Salle student. Maybe it's the ease with which students can get involved, maybe students (especially juniors and seniors) realize that participation in activities looks great on college applications, or maybe it's the range of activities that lead to so many getting involved, but the popularity of extracurricular activities here caimot be denied. There's the ever-growing WEXP TV Studio; the Wisterian, the source of month old news, and the legendary Forum, where students with a variety of political views compete with other schools in the arts of oratory and debating. The often-seen but little understood Gaming Club is next, with the Band and Chorus providing enjoyment for members and non-members through a series of annual concerts. The Science Club grabs students' attention by way of different projects like the Recyclable Regatta and the infamous Egg Drop Competition. Of course, there's the Yearbook, a collection of writers, editors, and artists who assemble each day in their second-floor office to discuss any of a number of topics, from the latest writer to the process of ignoring a deadline to the issue of a burlap cover. Though rarely managing to reach a consensus, they do manage to combine their skills effectively for the production of the Blue and Gold as the year progresses. Participating in any La Salle activity provides a source of fun, a mountain of memories, an outlet for talent, and yet another reason for students to feel that overwhelming sense of belonging in this time of pride.

Band You Can Hear the Difference

E

ach year's La Salle Band outgrows its predecessors. Starting with Thursday morning summer practices, the ninety-nine person pep band adds three or four songs annually to its extensive repertoire (showcased at every varsity football game), the concert band grows more impressive every year, and the competition band adds to its collection of awards. Indeed, from the first day of school through graduation, you can always here some sort of music, from Rock to Jazz, from Classical to Dixieland. The Freshman Band, Intermediate Band, String Ensemble, Guitar Ensemble, Pep Band, Concert Band, Sax Quartet, Percussion Ensemble, Competition Band, Jazz Band, and Advanced Band all fight for practice time throughout the day. Due to the construction of a new practice room, this year marked the end of the lounge, with its extensive musical video library. And we lost another tradition when Brother Frank transformed the famed Fifth Period Band into the Fourth Period Band! But, more importantly, no one will ever forget Mr. C's explosions, Mr. Vettori's patient explanations or The Giants - Mr. Genovese and Mr. Bene towering over every student to ensure that they are in tune. Mrs. Kensey' s piano skills also awed us once a week, and who won't recall Mr. McGill's tendency to have a well-deserved headache every day after second period? With this amazing faculty, our freshmen alone sound better than the Prep's band! Steve Crognale manages this mess, with John Fisher conducting and Bill Markmann supervising. Joe Haughton is in charge, but without each dedicated member, this band wouldn't be the biggest and best in the Catholic League.

Chorus Competition: Vocal and Intense

W

ith seven members remainingof the 1996-97 choristers, prospects for the choral program seemed grim. However, under its new director, Mr. Timothy Stopper, the chorus tripled both in numbers and in productivity. The organization is now twenty-four voices strong, and performed at banquets, liturgies, and ceremonies throughout the region, as well as within La Salle. Mr. Stopper even managed to arrange things so the chorus could sing at the Cathedral, at the Cardinal's blessing of the Creche. Our singers also had notable success in All-Catholic Chorus and on La Salle's stage in How to Succeed in Business without Really Trying. The Chorale de La Salle as a whole, as well as its smaller groups, the barbershop quartet, the trio and the Belcrofters, had a successful year.

Anyone know the tune to Stairway to Heaven?

Art Club Using All the Right Brain

W

hy are students hurrying up the stairs in St. Michael's Hall every Thursday afternoon instead of down? The answer is: ART. The Art Club headed by our own talented art teachers, Mrs. Diane McGovern and Mrs. Melissa Centofante, meets on a weekly basis to explore the realm of creativity. From painting a picture to "throwing" a pot, the Art Club does it all. In this club, one can choose for himself what he wants to reach out for. All the means of expression are open to the students. In the first semester, Mrs. McGovern brings out our abilities in painting and drawing; while in the second semester, Mrs. Centofante takes over with ceramics and sculpture. Throughout the year, in addition to our own individual projects, the club also prepares for the ever-popular Fine Arts Festival. And, in the Spring, the club members travel to the city of New York to visit several museums. The powerful, creative atmosphere of this group brings a proud and positive force from extracurricular activities to Lasallian academics. ~

The Crucible La Salle Acting Bewitches the Audience

T

his year's Fall dramatic production certainly exceeded the expectations of everyone involved. Arthur Miller's The Crucible was a fantastic success. Led by a talented new face in the drama department, Adam Sasso, the cast realistically portrayed a tragic story of the Salem witch trials of America's past. Gracing the stage for the last time were senior cast members: the dynamic duo of justices, Gamal Palmer and Paul Kahan, the Reverends Kevin Fitzpatrick and Joe Haughton, and the elderly Tim Reiley. With some help from MSJ's senior Kelley Schmidt and Tennant's junior Jeannine Kowslowski, the cast gave an energetic and heart-felt performance that touched the souls of all in attendance. The setting was easily achieved with the help of period costumes and stark stage dressing that provided the proper feeling for the town of Salem during the time of the eighteenth century. The stage crew and its manager, Dan Fineberg, constructed a simple but effective area for the actors to paint their characters. Few times in recent history has La Salle seen such a dramatic display of emotion and understanding of the human soul present on our stage, and under the direction of Mr. Bloh, the show went on without a hitch.

D

ear Reader, This little book is designed to tell you everything you need to know about the science of producing a La Salle musical, in particular, How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying. Just follow these simple step by step instructions, and you'll be on your way! First, you need solid leadership. If you have Colleen Durkin Lapowski directing, Mr. Stopper teaching vocals, Mr. Ciccimaro in charge of production, Vince Carr conducting the orchestra, and Mr. Grace and Mrs. Garvin moderating, you have nothing to fear.

You know that you are in good shape when roles are filled by the talented seniors Joe Haughton, Gamal Palmer, Dave Schmel, Chris Scott, junior Chris DiToro, and sophomores Ryan Mascio and Chris Curci. Oh, don't forget the most important OPPOSITE SEX. With Kelly Schmidt, Maria Brinkmann, Jamie Udinson, Jordan Walsh, and Kelly Bloh as female leads, you can't go wrong. Make sure sure to have a chorus of singers as well as dancers to support these talented leads. Any of the following would be an asset to the production: (Chorus) Michael Brown, Brendan Burke, Joe Laguda, Mike Knowski, Kevin Hannon, and Kevin Lyons. Good, you have direction, you have actors, but now you need something to hold everything together. We recommend a top-notch stage crew ... Led by senior stage manager Dan Fineberg and senior set designer Teague O'Malley, our crew can do anything from screwing in a light bulb to constructing the Eiffel Tower.

The hard-working members of this crew include seniors Paul O'Connor, Greg Queen, Saurabh Desai, Kevin Fitzpatrick, and Matt Brannon; juniors Karlis Berzins, Zack Derrick, and Joe Sweeney and sophomore Ryan Brogen, Alex Bethke, and Shawn Moore. Congratulations! You're ready for a very special La Salle production. So sit back, relax, and enjoy the show.

Language Clubs They're not All Moderated by Brother Michael Thai

U

nder the fearless leadership of Magister Geiger (Mr. William Geiger), La Salle's Latin Club has enjoyed its third year at La Salle. This year, the club's interests have been expanded to include not only the study of Roman foods, but also the study of Roman history and culture as well. The club is directed by seniors Vincenzo LaRuffa and Brian Carberry, who serve as co-presidents. Senior Al Clay also adds a helping hand by assisting Magister Geiger in numerous club-related tasks. However, the club could never have prepared its culinary masterpieces if it had not been for sophomore Pete Jenkins and his mother, who donated their time and kitchen supp lies pro bono to make the numerous classical dishes which grace the tables during the Latin Club's conviviums (parties). Clearly, the 1997-98 Latin Club is not just maintaining the status quo in room 308. This year's club has set many new agendas such as conviviums, movies, field trips, et cetera. So, next time you hear about the Latin Club, feel free to drop by post hoc and enjoy an entertaining education on Rome. With this, its debut year, the Japanese Club was off to a great start, headed by Brother Michael Thai and comprised of students from his Japanese I and II classes as well as others who are just interested in the wonderful language and culture of the Japanese. Other than learning the language, the club also takes time to study the culture and to try to experience it as much as possible, although Nagano, for the Winter Olympics, was a little too far away to be considered for a field trip. Speaking of trips, the highlight of the Spanish Club's activities this year was a trek to New Jersey to hear the legendary Tito Puente and his band play the Cuban music which has influenced so many other styles. Fantastical according to the members and moderator Mr. Nicholas Coggins.

Multi-Cultural Club Viewing the World from Various Perspectives

T

he Multi-Cultural Corps is one of the many extracurricular activities La Salle has to offer for students of all ages, creeds, and ethnicities, but it is the only one dedicated to celebrating that diversity. Members are encouraged to share their different backgrounds, views, and ideas. Mrs. Nancy Zoeltsch has successfully moderated the ever-expanding and ever-growing group for the past eight years. This year, Gamal Palmer, a four-year veteran of the group, served as MCC President; Joe Chiarantona, as Vice-President. Kevin Lyons assisted as Program Organizer. The goal of the group is to break barriers; and, in that, the 1997 -1998 MCC was very successful. For example, the group visited a few different ethnic restaurants. The first trip, to a middle eastern restaurant in Chestnut Hill, provided quite a unique experience, opening both the mind and the mouth to the concept of ethnic diversity. By attending conferences, going to meetings, or just hanging out, the MCC is a great way to help bring together the Lasallian community and fulfill the mission to strengthen, unite, and celebrate our differences.

Photo Club A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words

W

hat would you say if you heard the Photography Club was the most important . club at La Salle? Many would disagree. Some would counterwith the tremendous contributions made by the CSC, the amazing accomplishments of the Band, or the phenomenal improvement made to La Salle when the almighty Latin Club was intro~ duced. At La Salle, the Photography Club does a lot more work than many people know. The club is centered around learning the basics of photography and photo-development techniques. Both La.Salle publications - the Wisterian. and the Blue and Gold rely heavily on the dedication. of these talented La Salle students. Photo Club members attend the majority of events, whether it be the Thanksgiving Day football game or the National Honor Society Induction, snapping pictures of the participants and the action. Led by the senior trio of Greg Queen, J.R. King and Kevin Fitzpatrickandsophomores Joe Gidjunis and Alex Bethke, the photo club grew in numbers this year. By learning and using the fundamentals instilled in them by Mr. William Geiger, the photography club members ensure that both the newspaper and the yearbook are the best that they can be.

Service Clubs Students Who Make a Difference

L

a Salle can take pride in the many service clubs and activites in which students participate. These generous and outgoing organizations not only benefit the community but also La Salle itself. The Lasallian Youth organization, for example, is involved in tutoring programs at Providence House and through Project Home. Members visit the elderly at St. Joseph's Villa in Flourtown and do children's day care at the Church of the Brethren right next door to La Salle. SADD tries to raise awareness of the dangers of drinking and driving among our students and those who visit our school. Our Community Service Corps, too, makes a large impact with any project it takes on. This year, the CSC concentrated on its annual activites. Its members encouraged the student body to increase its donations for major collection programs. During Operation Santa Claus in December, La Salle students came together to buy toys for needy children in Philadelphia, then delivered them to the surprised kids on Christmas Eve. We also fed the hungry during the three week February campaign of Bread Basketball by collecting food staples and canned goods and delivering them to local food cupboards. These activities focus on a local level, but the CSC's Amnesty International letter-writing campaign helps free prisoners of conscience and truly makes the world a better place.

T

he National Honor Society enjoys the respect and support of the student body and administration. It is ,. truly an honor to be a member of the NHS. To become a member of the NHS is no easy task. Maintaining a ;! ·. , 3.5 GPA, participating in multiple activities, and showing a willingness to serve are the criteria. NHS accomplishes vartous goals that have a great impact on the entire commu- 1 , 1 nity. The biggest program, one that runs throughout the 1' ' year, is the peer tutoring. The second biggest and most important project organized by the NHS is the annual blood drive for the American Red Cross and their recipients. !; These programs are a testament to the tremendous hard work and time given by the moderators, the officers, and all II' the members. The moderators of the NHS, Brother William II' DiPasquale and Mrs. Clare Brown, are primarily responsible for running the society and organizing programs and special ' events.

Forum They Can Talk the Talk

A

fter last year's success, in which we won the PCFL (Philadelphia Catholic Forensics League), the PHSSL (Pennsylvania High School Speech League), and the Valley Forge District of the NFL (National Forensics League), the La Salle Forum set its sights upon the one goal that had thus far eluded us: TOTAL WORLD DOMINATION! (or, at the very least, total Forensics domination). This year the Forum was lead by Vincenzo LaRuffa, our omnipresent President, Brian Carberry, the "Smoking Gun" and VicePresident, and Secretary "Teflon" Terry Fallon. Other able seniors are Team Debater (C-X) Rajesh "Rajamataj" Noronha, Lincoln-Douglas Debater (LD), Paul "Brother, I swear I was studying" Kahan, Extemporaneous Speakers (Extemp) "Diamond" Jim Palmieri, and Jim "jim, Jim, JIM!" Goldner. Promoting the importance of Rugby and fine Italian cooking, respectively, were LDers Dan Gillespie and Mario DiClerico. Our resident Simpsonologist is C-Xer Matt "Mad Skills" Murray. Rounding out the Junior Class were the interpreters of literature, Joe Gardner, Emidio Capponi, and Robert Brennan. This was a breakthrough year for the sophomores, led by Ryan McCort, who has established himself as the best Orator in Philadelphia. Ryan Fagan has become the best JV LDer in the area, and the team of William Phelan and Mike "Calm Down!" McCann are becoming part of the Varsity C-X scene. Fellow sophomore C-Xers Ray "Mafia" Shay and Jamin "I Pity the Fool" Warren, along with LDer Dean Frizlen, Extemp speakers John "Tougher than a Mac Truck" White, Mike Mielnick, Orator Joe Gidjunis, and Interpreters Ryan Mascio and John Payne made up the rest of the sophomore roster. Among the freshmen members, whom we hoped to one day mold into respectable high school students are ExTemps Mike Hilferty and John Alfarano, as well as LDer Matt Finley. Under the guidance of Mr. Ed Kelly, Mrs. Mary Jo Smith, Brother Kevin, and, of course, Brother Rene, the La Salle Forum is once again on the road to Forensics domination, at least for now.

Student Council Governing Through SEGA Genesis

A

lthough the La Salle Student Council is usually depicted as a group of jocks, winning a popularity contest, sitting in a small room playing SEGA all day; they actually do a lot to "build" and improve the school community. Under the nurturing eye of Moderator Mrs. Julia Maher, the 1997-98 Student Council lived out their "Explorer Enthusiasm" in each of their events as a "Blueprint for Success." President Paul Sharkey, Vice-President Hugh Donnelly, and Secretary John Travers did their best to break down the stereotype of past years. Picking up on the resurrected spirit of the school, the Student Council set out to build on and improve even further the enthusiasm of La Salle. From the spirited pep rallies to the infamous super mixers, the La Salle Student Council helped lay the foundation for a successful school year! Over 1,600 high school students attended the first super mixer and alleviated the stress of a new school year. Also, during the first month of school, the Student Council held its inaugural pep rally, which motivated the cross country, soccer, and football teams to excellent seasons. October's Halloween mixer was a huge success, with the great costumes and the unforgettable bobbing for apples. Momma Colistra with the Men in Black got us ready to face the Hawklets on Thanksgiving Day. We wore our "manly" blue Attack Pack shirts. The Executive Officers also formulated two proposals for the administration of La Salle, the first, for a Book Exchange Program to save the students money, and the second, a proposal for permission to wear a universal golf shirt in the spring. In the second semester; the Student Council carried out Spirit Week 1998 with arm wrestling, Jell-0 eating, trivia and an enthusiastic pep rally to pump up the swimmers, hoop players, and wrestlers. In May, the Student Council planned a "Blue and Gold" day to have fun and to thank the most enthusiastic students in the P.C.L. for all of their support. The La Salle College High School Student Council, during the 1997-98 school year, took their Explorer enthusiasm blueprint and developed it into an awesome structure of fun, spirit, and pride for the school community.

Science Club Mr. Wi: The Science Guy

T

he Science Club is forever devoted to pushing back the walls of ignorance. Guided by the indefatigable Mr. Gary Wiley, the patron saint of "nerddom," the Science Club seeks answers where there are questions and questions where there are answers. "There are no leaders," the Science Club says, "only followers!" Among its many activities, the club participated in a hotair balloon "race." The first attempt suffered severe wind sheers, making flights last just a bit longer than the Wright Brothers'. When a new site was found, members went back to the drawing board, creating tissue paper aeronautical marvels that managed to exceed expectations. Then, new entries to the famous Rocket Car Race were refined and tested. "Watch out!" came the cries. "These cars can really move. Beware of flying drivers!!" The piece de resistance of the Science Club's year is the evergrowing annual Recyclable Regatta, a race which garnered great interest from La Salle University. This "garage armada" promoted a clean environment and conservation of our Earth's resources. It is because of these many activities that the Science Club will continue to flourish in the La Salle community.

Parents' Clubs When They're Not Grounding You ...

E

ach year the Parents' Clubs make their presence known by holding many activities. This year, the Mothers' Club had their annual fashion show, a day of recollection, and a winter social. The Men of La Salle enjoyed a successful father-son night and a sports night at La Salle University, as well as the father-son golf outing and a trip to Camden Yards in Baltimore, MD. Pooling their many talents, the two clubs produced La Sale, a very successful auction which is organized each year. Needless to say, each club is there for the students. The primary purpose of the Men of La Salle is "to ensure that no student is forced to discontinue his La Salle education due to the loss of his family's primary wage earner." The Mothers' Club makes the memories for the students. From assembling the seniors' baby pictures to tallying up the totals of the magazine drive sales to providing Christmas ornaments as mementos for the seniors, the members of the Mothers' Club always makes school life more pleasant.

WEXP The Future's TV Tabloid Producers

U

nder the leadership of Mr. Joseph Dempsey, La Salle's largest club has become more visible as a part of every student's day. With the acqusition of several new pieces of equipment over the summer of 1997, La Salle now has capabilities rivaling those of television stations in several colleges. However, equipment does not alone make a TV station: talented people are needed to operate the equipment. Seniors Mike Heinsdorf, Tim Reiley, and Kevin Dougherty have proven themselves indispensable leaders when it comes to technical production, writing, and anchoring , respectively. Assisting them are over eighty students, grouped into four shifts. Change has been an ever-present theme at WEXP in the last year. Production values have gone up as students continue to become familiar with ' and experiment with the equipment. The daily show has been assigned to groups of producers, who are responsible for two weeks of programming. Weekly, the La Salle Sports Scoreboard has informed students about the athletic achievements of other students, and has proven to be a great success. WEXP has also involved others not associated with WEXP through teacher interviews and guest anchors spots, along with the "I Can Do It Better" contest for students. Thanks to its large membership, motivated students, and technological capability, WEXP promises to remain a part of La Salle for a long time.

Wisterian Delivering All the News That Fits on Four Pages

E

very month, a four to eight page newspaper is distributed to the administration, faculty, and all 970 students of La Salle College High School. As stated by our masthead, the purpose of The Wisterian is to inform the student body of news and opinions of relevance to the school community. But we do much more than that. Under the astute leadership of moderators Mr. Michael O'Toole and Mr. John Young, editors Scott Emrich '98 and J.R. King '98 miraculously publish each issue. The modern marvel affectionately known as The Wis has a dedicated and talented staff working together towards a common goal. Junior Jeremy Cooke edits the front page informing reader of all the news and events happening around La Salle. Senior Tim Reiley is in charge of the Op-Ed page. This page includes the editorial, which represents the collective opinion of the Wis staff, as well as commentaries from students from all aspects of the La Salle community. Sophomore sensations Pat Hildebrandt and Jim Durkin edit the features and sports pages, covering all La Salle activities and athletic events. As contributing editor, Scott Kelly works on all the special projects. Senior Greg Queen rounds out our senior editors. Greg makes sure that all the sports and news events are properly represented in photographic form. The small room next to the Computer Lab is the place where, among other things, the Wisterian is put together. From discussing the Mount's new uniforms, debating about major world issues, and maintaining an informative and entertaining web site, to providing the world with proofs on how the singularity of a black hole can be determined with certain givens, there is never a dull moment on the Wisterian. Oh, and we also somehow produce the paper at the same time. During the busy, often hectic production time, brief moments of brilliance shine forth. Among other accomplishments, news editor Jeremy R. Cooke and editor-in-chief J.R. King have been published in The Philadelphia Inquirer. This year the staff hopes to finally take down Little Flower's newspaper The Theresian, and bring home the award for the best Catholic school newspaper in the area.

Blue and Gold Enter SubHeading Here

W

elcome to the locker room ... t's done, thank God it's finally done. If you are reading this, we can rest assured we are finally done. After months (perhaps some key days) of work, the long anticipated Blue and Gold is here, perhaps the extra-curricular activity with the most optimism (well, barring deadline weeks). The staff of the Blue and Gold strive to put out a successful edition hoping to surpass the work (or lack there of) completed by the staff of the previous year. Of course unrivaled, this annual publication is the best yearbook this school will see (at least for this year). Enter the Yearbook office one day after school and you'll see the bustling young slaves working on this production. Chief Slave of this organized confusion is Saurabh Desai, although most staffers ponder the actual purpose for his presence in the office. It has been learned that affirmative action has helped yet another minority attain a position well befitting any qualified white man (said with tongue firmly in cheek, whatever color that cheek may be). Under the guidance of the moderators lies the true heart and soul of the Yearbook, the staff. Senior editor Dan Ponisciak organizes and assembles the troops as soon as school lets out. Senior editors Tim Reiley, Kevin Fitzpatrick, Mike Brinkos, and J.R. "Get your stuff in!" King assure that all copy, legible and illegible, translates itself onto these pages. Senior Greg Queen develops the "interesting mound of exposures" mere mortals call pictures. Finally, rounding out the senior editors is Brian Carberry, who manages the money and yearbook orders. So, if you paid in cash and we don't have your order, then look to see if Brian has a new watch. Leading the underclassmen and all the other non-Seniors in the efforts is the invaluable Chip MacPherson (a.k.a. Chimp, Chump, and his favorite, Skip). If you have a complaint about our book, you may want to speak to our fellow staffer Joe "Slugger" Gidjunis; he keeps it real. Other unheralded, but key staffers include Matt Ranweiler, Alex "Dave" Bethke, Matt Hartnett, John Strzalka, John Doherty, John Zaro, and our very own Bean (Sean Toole). Oh, Tim Ponisciak makes an appearance every now and then (mostly then). All joking aside, this staff, attempting to have La Salle reminisce on this "Time of Pride," combined with the tutelage of moderators Mrs. Linda Donahue and Mr. William Geiger, have worked hard on compiling this 216 page treasure chest of memories. Whenever you walk by the office, however, you just might see Mr. Geiger and Mrs. Donahue shrug their shoulders and utter those oft said words, "We really just don't know!"

Sports: Exploring the Winning Side

I

t all started on Sunday, September 6. The La Salle football team took the field and dominated yet another opponent, extending their winning streak which eventually ended in an unprecedented 32 games. With that, another year had begun, continuing the legacy of La Salle sports. Anyone who has ever been to a La Salle sporting event knows the full extent of what it is all about. For all those who are in the stands, this heralded event is more than just a game. The culmination of countless hours of preparation by those who are on the field brings a spirit of brotherhood to all those there to wih1ess. Furthermore, these games are not just for La Salle students. Large events such as the Thanksgiving day football game or the basketball playoffs draw students from neighboring schools, families, and avid sports fans just interested in watching a good game. La Salle sporting events generate a type of excitement that is not present elsewhere. That excitement is not limited to spotlighted games. It matters not whether the spectators are witnessing Mike Byrnes take down the unsuspecting opponent Andrew Rakowski pull up and drain a three-point shot, John Tucker crush a grand slam, or Mike Abbott put a ball past a helpless goalie. The truth is that Explorer sports are a time to capitalize on dedication, a time to enjoy the simplicity of athletic competition, but most of all a time of pride.

Ball: "I just know I'll get hit from both sides." "Coach did NOT say 'Simon SAYS touch your toes."'

Explorers Battle Opponenb Capture Playoff Berth T

his year's Varsity Football program may not have taken its third straight Catholic League Championship, it may not have finished , the top of the Northern Division, it may not have advanced beyon, the first round of the playoffs, and it may not have continued the consect: wins streak, but this year's squad can by no means be deemed a disappoi ment. Coach Colistra's 13th season as head coach gave him a 94-6-1 recc His philosophy of "improvement" rather than winning took this team ver far, and kept the possible distraction of the winning streak from becomini factor during the season. The streak did not come to an end, however, before some notice " given to it. Now both a La Salle record and a Philadelphia Catholic Leag1 record, the streak was a topic of many discussions and many articles abot this year's program and season. This record-setting ride of 31 straight wiI was ended, however, by Archbishop Ryan on October 31, in a controversi 14-13 win which featured some difficult weather conditions. This proved be the only loss this year's team endured throughout the rest of the regula season. This year's offense was top notch, with Brett Gordon returning fo1 third year at quarterback and placekicker. He received ample help from players like Jeff Pietrak and Eric Seiferth for him to throw or hand-off to. 路 experienced offensive line of Paul Weinacht, Tom Cross, and Puri Garzoni provided La Salle's talented playmakers with time and opportunities to de their jobs. The defensive unit did an excellent job of coping with the loss of players from last year's team. The void was more than adequately filled b members of last year's undefeated J.V. team. Returning starters Paul D'Orazio, Ed Bongard, Justin Primus, and Hugh Donnelly helped lead thiE group to success in a department where questions had been raised before 1 season. Another tremendous season led to a tenth consecutive playoff appearance. The team, however, was to suffer one more blow. Finishing second in the Northern Division, La Salle was seeded to face the third plac finisher Father Judge. A 47-17 upset ended La Salle's chances for a third consecutive championship. So was this season a disappointment? Hardly. This year's varsity football program put Coach Colistra within onl; six games of his lOOth win. The team set a school record and PCL record fc consecutive wins while maintaining the mentality of the "La Salle StudentAthlete." The team ended with a regular season record of 6-1 in their division and 8-1 overall. This squad showed its superiority on both ends of thE football. The season also earned La Salle its tenth playoff berth in as many years. It was, in fact, a season of which we're proud.

Gordon Shatters State Record~

O

ften, people look at stats when evaluating the skill of a player. With Brett Gordon, though, the most important stat of all is "two," as in two Philadelphia Catholic League Championships. Brett, a three-year starter, also managed to compile some impressive personal stats as well. His teams had a career record of 33 wins and only 5 losses, and he also led La Salle to an all-time Pennsylvania best 32 consecutive wins. During his senior season, Brett not only rewrote the La Salle record book but also the Catholic League and the Pennsylvania ones, as well. For the season, Brett threw for 2,647 yards on 175-for-301 passing, a 58% completion rate, and 33 touchdowns. During his three varsity seasons, he passed 482-for-884 (55%) for 6,837 yards, the second best in state history. Brett also holds the state career record for touchdown passes at 84. As La Salle's punter and kicker, he ended his career with 91 PATs and 15 field goals. Looking back at Brett's record-breaking career, one must remember that more important than all of the yards and touchdowns he amassed, he was, above all, a winner.

he J.V. football team completed another year with the same purpose that has been around for generations. Head coach Joseph Colistra has assembled a squad for preparation to take over for the varsity players who have moved on. In an effort to cultivate young individual talent, the team still took the time to amass an impressive 8-1 record. Quarterback Paul Colistra and runningback Jordan Mulrain led an explosive offense headed by coach Jim Maxwell; linebacker Chris Dougherty and defensive end Chris Williamson strengthened Paul Cuback's defense. Despite a disappointing 8-6 defeat to Archbishop Ryan, it was a very successful season, and next year many of the players will be moving up to the varsity team. The return of head Freshman coach Mr. Joseph Radvansky brought renewed success this year as the freshman started their La Salle careers with an impressive 6 - 2 record. Moderator Mr. Geoffrey Nicoletti and assistant coaches Mr. JohnYoung, Mr. Daniel Hinckle, Mr. John Mezzanotte, and Mr. Joseph Murphy helped guide the 52 players to a season very much improved over last. While the team featured a talented offense, it had a dominating defense that could keep them in every game. It seemed that all the players and coaches had a lot of fun, and look foward to playing more in the coming years.

Cross Country Running With the Wind

T

he cross-country team's road to glory began along the shady paths of Valley Green and the rolling hills of Ft. Washington during the hazy days of July and August. This year, in a focused attempt to avoid last year's disappointments, they turned in a spectacular season, exeeding all expectations. The team developed into a talented, mature group, exemplified by the team's success at major tournaments such as the Eastern States Championship and the Pennsylvainia State Prep Championship. La Salle silenced the doubters, finishing with three League Championships. The team consisted of many peak performers. In the Varsity race, 1st team All-Catholics Al Clay, Colin McManus, T.J. Bartkowski, Greg Bielecki, Jeremy Palo, and Pat Badolato, with the help of Tom Devlin and Tom Chmielewski, scored a spectacularly low thirty points. Mike Donohue, Nick Jordal, Rick Carminati, Steve Bolger, and Bill Bonner led the J.V., while freshmen Sean Badolato, Chris Potestio, Brain Baillie, Mark Swanson, and Justin Morace won their respective crowns.

Explorers Kick Their Way into the Playoffs

T

he La Salle soccer team had an outstanding season finishing with an impressive record of 15-4-3. Coach Peffle and company once again returned to the playoffs in search of the ever-elusive PCL championship. After the loss of key seniors Matt Cox, Mike Heim, and John Savage to graduation, the team would need other varsity and junior varsity players to step up and fill the void. They didn't disappoint. The team was led this year by Roman Escobar, Sean Westfield, Joe Steffa, Dan Neverosky, and Chris Ward among others. These fine players were what Coach Peffle referred to as the engine room of the team. Along with their strong offense, the Explorers also rose to the challenge on the defensive side of the field. Led by goaltender Sean Teesdale (who had an outstanding seven saves in the playoff game against Ryant the defense shut down many opponents while the front line scored almost at will. Next season, the Explorers look to build on the momentum generated during this season in the hope that they will be able to bring home the Championship plaque.

Hoopsters Stir Up Catholic Leagut Varsity B-Ball Advances in Playoffs

T

he 1997-98 La Salle Explorers were a group who truly defined the word "team." Unlike the season before, one in which all the team's success centered for the most part around the play of one guy, Joe Meade, this year's team won and lost based on how well they played together as a group. Led by seven seniors, including Chris McShea, Andrew Rakowski, Ed Bongard, Dan Neverosky, Brett Gordon, John Welsh, and Mike Lorusso, the Explorers were once again among the best teams in the Northern Division. Besides demonstrating a great chemistry among its players, the team also benefited from a terrific coaching staff, including newcomer Mr. Brian McGill. With the addition of Mr. McGill, head coach Mr. Marty Jackson's coaching staff now included three La Salle faculty members, the other two being Mr.Bernie Fitzgerald and Mr. Joe Dempsey. "It's a great help to me as a coach to have these three guys with me," said Mr. Jackson, "I have always said that athletics is just an extension of the classroom." The Explorer's season was filled with many big victories, including two wins over their closest competitor in the division, Father Judge. Moreover, besides appearing in the title game of the Carroll Classic, the team won the Silver Springs Tournament in Silver Maryland over the Christmas Vacation. Under the leadership of Mr. Jackson, the 1997-98 Explorers proved themselves as the team to beat in the Northern Division, and completed yet another successful season.

J.V. & Freshman Basketball A Reason to Believe

T

he La Salle junior varsity basketball team had another successful campaign this year. Coached by Mr. Joseph Dempsey, the team played strongly in the Catholic League. The team boasted some of La Salle's future stars. Juniors Jimmy Sullivan, John O'Hara, Keith Olender, Steve Erfle, Brendan McCormick, and sophomore Brian Horgan played on both Varsity and JV. Meanwhile, sophomores Pat O'Neill, Mike DeCrescio, John Poley, Kevin Dolan, Paul McGurkin, Anthony Siravo, Dennis Stanton, and Brian Jenkins all contributed to the team's effort. This team's showing gives us all a reason to believe that La Salle's basketball program will be strong for years to come.

Swimming Decade of Dominance

T

his year's teams boasted swimmers who combined 4 years of competetive depth with the experience of last year's second place finish at National Catholics: Paul Sharkey, Mike Knowski, Brendan O'Hara, Bill Markmann, Tim O'Malley, and the captains, Joe Chiarantona and Ryan Tuman. Notable underclassmen include: Craig Keenan, Sean Tucker, Evan Behr, Matt Ranweiler, Mike Harrigan, Brad Green, Kieran Bryers, Matt Wahl, Brian Bacher, and Kevin Dougherty. Head Coach Mr. Frank Lichtner said this year's team had a "nice blend of swimmers from different levels", who all did a "steady job" throughout the seasonal meets. The team "motored through everybody" in the league and swam extemely well against some rival teams outside of the league. LaSalle defeated Paul VI and St. Joseph's Metuchen in December match-ups, and then, in an exhibition meet with Hill and Metuchen, LaSalle "got the better of the two teams." This very dedicated bunch was in the pool before most of us were out of bed on school days, and back in the pool again for another 2 hours after school let out. And let's not forget the Saturdays and Sundays spent in the water. "This team worked their tails off... and I'm proud to know these guys." Mr. Lichtner said. "Right now there's a teacher-pupil relationship between us, but I look forward to the day when our relationship is between friends. I watch these guys develop, mature, and build confidence. That is the biggest thrill; that's what winning is." Whether you'd like to look at this year's season from the secondary and superficial terms of trophies and medals, or if you'd rather take Mr. Lichtner's perspective of development, maturity, and confidence, the conclusion is obvious. This year's swimming program won big.

Bowling It's Gotta Be the Shoes

S

taring down the freshly oiled lanes and anticipating the beginning of the greatest season in La Salle Bowling's long and illustrious history, Coach Gary Wiley knew that this was the year. As his troops filed into the hallowed halls of Thunderl Lanes, he saw four returning bowlers and five seniors to lead the charge, led by "Kingpin" Mike Weinert, the man who aspired to a second straight highest league average title. Mr. Wiley knew that all the praises and reviews of his team in the Wisterian were true and that these bowlers were "legend" material. The starting Varsity consisted of freshmen James Edelen, sophomore Mike Albert, junior Dan Barnes, and seniors Dav Schmel and the aforementioned Mike Weinert (who often refers to himself as "The Answer," among other things). Starting the season off slow, the pace began to pick up after a huge win at Conwell Egan. The second half kicked off with a sweep of North two wins over Ryan, thanks to Beau Yanoshik's stepping up from JV in order to clutch a come-from-behind victory on the roa That's not to forget the JV: three returning seniors included the myth, Erik Peterson, the man, Beau Yanoshik, and the legend, Mark Szczech (who is often referred to as "Kingpin" and "The Answer" by everyone except Weinert). G Wiley, lookini toward the future, expanded the team this year to fifteen. The additions to the JV /Novice team were freshmen Tom Bloh, Chri Breen and Joe Hand, sophomores Kyle ("the Wiz") Wizotskey, Scott Kelley and Geof Lang, and junior Chris Heayn. What the: learned this season was that it isn't necessarily the score that matters (if you know what I mean), but the inspirational sound o eight-pound ball punishing the pins: nothing beats this! The highlight of the year in La Salle Bowling was the Varsity's home match versus Conwell- Egan. Many of the bowle: classmates, including the Explorer himself, showed up to support the team. The lanes were loud and the bowling was great, w record crowd cheering every spare and strike, including the eight in a row "Kingpin" Weinert threw. As the regular season came down to a close, there were many questions still left unanswered: who would fill the shoei this year's seniors? Did the girl on Cheltenham Avenue ever recover, Dave? With the losses of Szczech and Yanoshik, who wil the Turkey Dance next year? Would Weinert ever yell "This one's for you, buddy" again? Would Albert still trash talk during practice? Would Szczech miss Peterson's words ("nice try") of encouragement? How did Breen throw a 204? How did Barnes' get yellow? And, finally, now that G Wiley cut the hair, would the goatee be next?

Indoor Track In From the Cold

T

his year's indoor track team once again performed in excellent fashion. The times posted by the team have become the benchmark of La Salle's excellent athletic program. Led by a strong force of seniors and juniors, the track team has already made the record books in several instances. Most notable, perhaps, is La Salle's 4 x 800m relay team of seniors Al Clay and Chris Ward, and juniors Greg Bielecki and Mike Donohue. Their time of 7:57.2, set on January 24th at the Princeton Relays, is the best in the state and second in the country. The 4 x 400m team of Clay, Bielecki, Ward, and junior Obi Amachi turned in a time of 3:30.9, third in the Philadelphia area. In the middle distance run, the key contributors have been seniors Colin McManus, T.J. Barkowski, Jeremy Palo, along with juniors Sean Teesdale and Pat Badolato. Top performers in the sprints so far have been senior Kevin Miller, juniors Brian Mee, Obi Amachi, sophomore Kevin Seminack, and senior Matt Mee, who also does well in hurdles. Others who excelled include John Clark '98 in high jump and triple jump, Andrew Au '98 in long jump and Pat Moore '99 in shotput. Of importance is the fact that the team competes in the Greater Philadelphia Track and Field Coaches Association, which means they compete against about a hundred private, public, and Catholic schools. Coach Patrick Devine and company have once again raised the level of excellence of La Salle athletics.

Ice Hockey The Icemen Cometh

T

hroughout the years, the La Salle Ice Hockey Program has established itself as one of the finest in all of Pennsylvania. This year, under the guidance of first year coach Wally Muehlbronner, the expectations were even higher. Even after the loss of players such as Casey Schafer, Matt Kelly, and Pat McCullion, the Varsity 1 team continued to steamroll the competition in the Inter-County AAA League. They even challenged talent-laden New England prep schools such as Trinity Pawling and South Kent. The offensive firepower was provided by juniors Sean Heron, senior Bob Farrell, and sophomore Pete Naticchione. Seniors Dan Felix, Brant Heaton, juniors Kevin Brady, Pat Salvitti, Lou Merlini, James Nowicki, Ryan Cohen, Drew Santillo, and sophomores Ryan Ciolli and Mike Loftus also made significant offensive contributions. On the blue line, seniors Mike Mauriello, Dan Becker and junior Brad Bathgate helped solidify the defense. Senior Shane Reilly and freshman Sean Garvin punished all opponents who came near. Finally, junior Justin Levin and sophomore Greg Molchen formed one of the premier goaltending tandems in the league. Among the Varsity l's early season accomplishments were a first place finish in the Pittsburgh Central Catholic Tournament and a decisive 9-2 win over last year's Flyers Cup Champion, Malvern Prep. However, the coup de grace came in the State Championship game, when the Explorers handed Central Catholic a 3-2 defeat. Meanwhile, the Varsity 2 emerged as a contender in the Inter-County AA League. The JV A and B teams made great strides in their respective leagues, continuing the La Salle hockey tradition. Thanks to an abundance of depth and talent, the hockey program at La Salle should be at the top for years to come.

Wrestling Grappling With the Best

T

he commitment found in all activities at La Salle is nowhere more evident than in the wrestling program. Through many intense prac tices and a strenuous schedule, the wrestlers give new meaning to the phrase "only the strong survive." However, few moments in life are as sweet as having one's hand raised in victory. After a strong 96-97 campaign, many critics believed this year's squad would be noticeably weaker. But this year's group silenced the critics early on, proving that they could remain near the top in a highly competitive Catholic League. Led by team captains Mike Byrnes, Puri Garzone, and Mark Ruegg, the wrestlers held true to their cause. Under the tutelage of Coach Mr. Ken Flood and his assistants, many underclassmen have stepped up. Juniors Joe Fedyna, Travis Manion and Gary Murray made significant contributions. Leading the Sophomore grapplers were Tim Black, Joe Spause, Chris Dougherty, Mike Cosgrove, Jon White, and Gilberto Aponte. Meanwhile, the JV wrestlers also had another excellent season. Junior Dino D'Orazio, Sophomores John Boring and Nick Onufrak all turned in excellent performances. Finally, with a strong group of Juniors, up to 10 Sophomores in the varsity lineup, and a strong incoming Freshman class, the future of La Salle's wrestling tradition is bright.

Baseball La Salle's Pastime

T

his year's team enjoyed another exciting season. La Salle played competitively and to the end. With names like Peache Bulb and Thugs, how could they lose? As the play got intense, they stepped up their play. The future of the La Salle Baseball looked bright. The team was coached to another winning season by Mr. Joseph Parisi, who was assisted again this year by the talenh Brother Tim Ahern and Mr. Dave Heineman. These three men provided unlimited guidance to the struggling hitter or the wil pitcher. This year's squad consisted of many seniors. The captains, Jeff Pietrak, Ed Bongard, John Tucker, and Mike Mattern, 1 the team to success through their experience. Adam Richards and Pat Moore returned as second year starters and insured the offense behind Pietrak and Bongard. The silent assassins Hugh Donnelly, John Fisher and John Travers provided some time a assistance, wherever it was needed. No season would be complete without the antics of John Tucker, Tuck always managed h get the team ready for a game and he came through on the field when he had to. The underclassmen also played a major role i the team's success. Led by second year third baseman Keith Olender and shortstop John Malara, they provided some much needed infield help. The team played a very vigorous schedule including games against the Hill School, Father Judge and Archbishop Rya As the season wound down, the Explorers were in the playoff hunt. As usual, the managers kept the team pointed in the right direction. Senior Manager Dan Ponisciak, Junior Manager Tim Ponisciak and newcomer Pat McKeown gave the team the support they needed to be victorious. This year's team truly defined a TEAM EFFORT.

JV & Frosh Baseball The Unsung Heroes of the Field

T

he 1998 season was one of promise for both of La Salle's younger hardball teams. Coaches Mr. Fran Spause of the Frosh and Mr. George Denicola of the J.V. team welcomed the newest stars in the school's diamond crown. After finishing19-0 as a Freshman team, Denicola had high expectations for his J.V. squad this year. Pitching and defense were his mainstays, and as always the J.V. players hit the ball well. Among the standouts looking toward the varsity team were Leon Benn, Brian Harvey, Tom O'Connor, Chris Dougherty, Ernie Barile, Anthony Siravo, and Pat Mallach. Mr. Spause took over a freshman team that has succeeded well for more than a decade on La Salle's diamonds. Always tough in the pitching and hitting area, the frosh competed well among a strong Catholic League. Combining power, speed, and pitching, the two teams served their purpose as feeders to the varsity squad.

What goes up, must come down.

Other top golfers included seniors Jim Liberi and Neil Mikulski and juniors Dave Cuff, T.J. Piper, and Rich Krauss. Among fifteen other teams in the PCL golf league, La Salle's squad of about twelve men has consistently proven to be the best. Coach Jackson said that the new talent that joined the team this year is as important as the old talent. The football and swim teams can step aside.

Tennis Because "T" Stands for "Triumphant"

T

he 1998 La Salle tennis team has enjoyed another great season in its pursuit of a PCL championship, the seventh in an eight year stretch. The team, under varsity tennis coach Tore "T" Hanssen, was looking to surpass seventy-five wins. Although four of last year's starters graduated, the team was poised to capture the Catholic League once again. Led by senior Matt John, this young and talented team experienced another successful year. Even with few seniors, the team boasted winning and experienced players. Junior Rich Davoli and sophomores Jim Logan, R.J. Ermola, and Andrew Puntel made an impact. Thad great expectations for this talented team. "Yes, this team is young," Mr. Hanssen said, "but they are experienced tennis players because they have been through it before and have a PCL championship under their belt." La Salle's competition this year included Ryan, O'Hara, and, of course, St. Joe's Prep. Twas confident, however, that with winning varsity experience and his preparation, the season would prove to be successful and that last year's accomplishments would be repeated. As he believes, "Success breeds success."

Crew Trusting Coxwains with a $20,000 Boat

W

hoever said winning isn't everything never rowed for La Salle. The La Salle Crew is built on dedication discipline, and hard work. Hard work in the form of the dreaded " Loop of Death " are enough to cause grown men to cry. After a lack luster performance last season, the team came back with a vengeance. Workouts began in the fall for many of these passionate juniors and seniors with the words, "Beat Prep," ingrained in their minds. The strong corps of seniors should land this team successfully onto the medals dock come Stotesbury and Nationals. Rowing out of the nostalgic Canoe Club down by the corroded Strawberry Mansion bridge is a solid squad including the Midweight 8, Junior Varsity 8, Varsity 8, and the Varsity 4 and Midweight 4. Among the leaders of this lightning-quick flotilla are the seniors: John Wall, Brian Romanzo, Mike Lorusso, Mike Burleigh, Sean McCullagh, Tony Leonard, Chris Winward, Kevin Kohler, Brian Binder, Gavin Smith, Tommy Curran, and their fearless coxswains Nick Brunetti, Mike Greger, and Beau Yanoshik. "Intensity, gentlemen, intensity," are the words echoed by assistant coach Mark Gibbons. Head coach Charles Calvanese took over the helm this season aided by young assistants Wardlow, Kowalski, York and Gibbons. They spent countless hours teaching good rowers how to be great rowers. Moreover, the crew received the support of a dedicated Parents' Association who, with the advice of Mr. Peter Sigmund, purchased three new sleek "Millennium" shells for the crew's use. In order to appreciate crew, envision La Salle students willing to awaken at the break of dawn and spend their "Spring Break" on the beautiful "Schuylkill Riviera." Like world-class athletes who strive for Olympian Gold Medals, they, too, prepare to outmuscle the competition.

Lacrosse Cradling La Salle's Pride

S

kills, Defense, Communication, Unity, Values. As the warriors step onto the battlefield, these five qualities become part of them ... The blood rushes through their bodies, their hearts race, and the intensity rises. As each warrior examines his opponent, both honor and respect are transferred across the battlefield. The traditional handshake is exchanged by the teams' generals and the warriors get set for battle. This chain of events might sound familiar to you. There's a sport at La Salle which does this every week. It's Lacrosse. The 1998 La Salle lacrosse team committed itself to living out the above qualities every day, and to achieving those goals set forth by Coach Bill Leahy and Assistant Coach Dan Hinckle. This season, the lacrosse team sought its fifth Catholic League title and a bid for the state playoffs. The varsity players looked to captains Tom Cross, Dan Neverosky, and Mike Abbott for leadership in the season ahead. Other members of the varsity helped the team reach new heights, as well. No one was able to compete with the constant speed, sharp shooting, and intensity of mid-fielders and offensemen Sean Kent, Kevin Merlini, Nick Mattiacci and Paul Gibbons. Defensemen Pat Bevilacqua, Chris Smith and captain Tom Cross were hard to beat, especially with experienced goaltender Matt Westley commanding the net. Through the work of dedicated players and coaches, the La Salle Lacrosse Team was able to come away victorious from their 1998 season.

Seniors: Upperclassmen at Last T

he remarkable way in which the senior class has grown together and united over the past four years overshadows their impressive feats and accomplishments. The number of honors students and championships and National Merit Semifinalists the senior class has accumulated are impressive, true, but this class is more defined by who it is than by what it does. Friendships, forged during freshman year and tried as time went on are strengthened by the impending separation the class will soon experience. Bonds that will never be broken are evident to anyone who's seen a football or soccer game. Discussion, debates and disputes within the classroom have led to an increased understanding of a world of knowledge. We are proud of the four years the we have had. Four years - drawing to a close. Hard to believe during freshman orientation that the end would come so soon. The strange sensation of singing the Alma Mater that first day in the gym and realizing that "Hey, I'm done grade school and I'm here now" has given way to the strange sensation of attending a Mass in the same room and realizing "wow, I'll be leaving soon. I won't be here to experience this." The unfamiliar air of the people around us and of the school is gone, replaced by an almost melancholy understanding that soon we'll be gone, too. But for the seniors, it's a time of pride as well. It's been tough but rewarding; disappointing but exhilarating; at times, even fun. We'll be gone soon, but La Salle has prepared us well. The sadness we feel will give way to pride as we sing the Alma Mater one last time. And then... on to something else.

Sporting La Salle's new clean shaven look. "One more period and I've got this one beat."
