The 1986 football season started out great when the Spartans defeated Summ1t Country Day, m-o. A week later they went to Little M1am1. hoping co score big once again, but ended up losmg because of a bit of bad luck. Then they went on, beating Madison Plains, Clinton Massie (48-0), Greenview {Homecoming,, East ClintOn, Yellow Spnngs ( X)-6), and Southeastern Their chance to become KTC champs for the second year in a row then came, 1f they could just defeat Cedarville. Although they lost the game, we all know who the real champs are The1r over-all record was 7-3, and the1r KTC reocrd was 6-l. The season ended when they were defeated by Mason on Parents '1ght. During the season Tim Williams broke the record for longest field goal at Waynesville, ~1 yards. Although the year IS over, the memories will be remembered by the seniors of four great football years, and of bemg KTC champs their jun1or (198~) year.

Farewell Mrs. Finch! Hello Newlyweds!!! Two maJOr happenangs touched the faculty and Waynesville family this year. One brought us sadness, the other surprise and delaght. Mrs. Finch, a highly qualified and excellent teacher, decided to reme. She was replaced by Ms. Paul at the end of the first Semester. Mrs . Finch as a giving, patient and thorough teacher. She as well-liked by both students and staff. We miss her a lot .. . but wish her all the best in her retirement. The second event was quite a surpnse to many of us. It was the marnage of Ms. Malcolm and Mr. Gabbard. Most surpnsed was the football team, wath whom the Gabbards are so closely associated. We also wish them all the best in their marned life' Pictured left, Mrs. MaraJean Finch. Pictured above, Tim and Cindy Gabbard .

Tawn Crowned; Dawna Watches From Shore


1987 Prom was held May 2 on th~ Queen Riverboat. A buffet & dancing went on for some 2 1/2 hours (it se~med short) Dawna Edwards & Davtd Ashmor~ got ther~ too lat~ to ·sail 111 Jubil~~

Tawn Williams and Andy Morgan {left and below) were crowned Queen and King of the 1987 JunJOr¡Semor Prom. Mrs. Ph11l1ps, Berry Ratliff Or Pres.) & other class officers chose to have the prom on a river/party boat. It was a fun cho1ce ... but the prom seemed shorter this year. There were ~everal parties held after the prom in lieu of an ¡ After-Prom". The day had been clear, It was pleasantly warm and the Cmcinnau skylme sparkled on the water as the Jubilee Queen sailed by Many stayed on the top deck holdmg hands and watchmg the shore and other boats. There was a breeze and romance was 10 the air. Many of the dresses seemed to have yards and yards of satin and lace. This, in the R1verboat setting, made the prom eem as if from some earl1er time. The Prom theme, "The Best of Both Worlds", was appropriate as reality and fantasy combined on a beaunful Sprmg night
