varsity boys' tennis Eight players combined in many ways into tlie seven positions tliis season to produce an as­ tounding record of 20-2. The only losses oc­ curred against Alter. Josh once again had a fine season, proving his prowess in all of the Dayton area. A team of strong players backed one another throughout, showing that high school tennis is a team sport.

The J.V. team turned around its 1983 record of 1-6 to 6-1 this season. Wow! A host of fresh­ men supported the returning players. Certain­ ly, the tennis teams have a future.

the pictures?

The Middle School's tennis team finished their short season with three victories and tw o losses. The players all enjoyed the tennis, ex­ emplified by their distress when the other teams needed the courts so often. But they will move on the next tw o years, filling the yearly voids.

Baseball, ... baseball has been very, very, . .. well, bad to MVS. Echoing the softball team , nunnerous games dwindled down to an 0-2 record. After both a team and coach were scraped together, baseball had a heart once again. The unfortunate outcom e, well, it was unfortunate, 1985, please com e soon.

softba A schedule of ten-plus games this year unfor足 tunately dwindled to produce a 1-3 record for the girls' softball team. Up against different odds each week, what would happen next was com pletely unpredictable and unexpect足 ed. What's going to happen next year? The answer lies somewhere in 1986.

Girls's Track was astounding this season. Hard work and great determination reaped awards. They placed higher than ever before in team meets. Many runners made it through sectionals and beyond. The fun season will definitely be repeated next year.

This year the Miami Valley Lower School Soccer Team played tw o games. We won one and lost one. I think our team looked good as a team , not just as a few players. Together we won as a team and lost as a team. We all would like to thank Mr. Fox and Ms. Becher for coaching us. It was on excit足 ing season; we learned to play as a team!

middle school girls' tennis

The Middle School Girls' tennis team was the strongest in a long time. Several of these girls will move to Coach Romeo's varsity squad next year, according to John McCoslin, the coach of the team. Steady singles play from Mary Spencer led the way. An unfortunate injury kept eighth grader Holly Tabrah from contributing as strongly as had been anticipat足 ed. The girls played with skills and enthusiasm throughout the season.


This year's season was the second year for the middle school girls' soccer team. The team was started lost year as an experiment to see what kind of interest there would be in it. The interest was welcomed, so the team remains. The main purpose of the team was not to have winning seasons, but rather to have training for the girls who desired to participate in varsity in future years. With many of the team's stronger players becoming freshmen next year, the 1984 season may very well be a year of a renewed girls' varsity team. On the other hand, many team members will be eighth graders next year; therefore the middle school is looking foreword to a good 1984 sea足 son.

middle school girls' soccer


middle school boys' soccer

The 7/8 Boys' Soccer team started with a vic足 tory and lengthened their win streak from the year before. Unfortunately, they were not a fast or big team, but their skill and endurance led them to a fine season and a 5-4 record. Three of the wins were shutouts, including an impressive 1-0 score against a touted Cincin足 nati Country Day School group. Much of the credit in these games went to the captains, Kevin Arnett and Ted Bernstein, whose ability and leadership guided throughout the season. The seventh graders displayed potential, five of whom will be returning starters. The award winners this year were tw o athletes who played with a strong desire to be the best. The 1983 most valuable award went to Jon Rion, and the most improvement was shown in Mike Peck's tough play.



Middle school boys' basketball had a new wrinkle this year: a female coach. Miss Roth smoothly made the transition an easy one for the players while quickly demonstrating that she was serious and knowledgeable about the game. The team had good numbers, evenly split between the seventh and eighth grades. Eager to start, the team was disappointed to discover the first game was scheduled for after the December holiday. Each gome brought with it vast improvements, and by the end of the season everything began to click. Everyone saw plenty of action and the season was enjoyed by all. Special thanks goes to Miss Roth and the eighth grade leaders who have shown how the game is to be played.

The numbers were greater than ever before on a middle school girls' basketball team. Mr. Zaluski had his work cut out for him. What the team lacked in skills was more than made up for in enthusiasm. Because of the numbers, several games were added to the schedule which allowed the seventh grade group to play as a team and the eighth grade group to do the same. As a result, each girl was able to gain as much experience this year as the girls had been able to do in the past. While the victories were few and the scores low, this team was able to provide one of the most exciting moments in basketball of the whole year as they cam e from behind to beat Day足 ton Christian after trailing ten to tw o a t the half. A great deal of experience was gained by all and the eighth grade girls will add some badly needed depth to the varsity girls' squad next season.

This year's graduating class began the year expecting a relaxed, enjoyable senior year. Boy, were they in for a big surprise! The pressure was on as unsym­ pathetic teachers piled on the more-than-heavy workload, and college appli­ cation deadlines were quickly approaching. Between the gruelling, sleepless nights spent writing and re-writing English Lit. papers, studying for Physics tests, and completing Senior Seminar reading assignments, the college applications miraculously managed to be com pleted — even if a few did have to be sent by Federal Express in order to m eet the deadline. Churning stomachs and insomnia plagued the poor seniors as they nervously aw aited to hear from the colleges of their choice. "When is this going to end? When are we going to have some fun?," the class wondered. Well, then cam e along Spirit Week. The first few days were a bit slow, but soon the seniors forgot about (well, not com pletely) home­ work and college, and concentrated on having fun together. The class of '84 continued its tradition of being the most spirited. As the year approaches its end, and many seniors finally know where they will be attending college, feelings of sadness, apprehension, excitem ent, nervous­ ness, and uncertainty, enter each student's mind. They will be leaving a place of security and support, a place of which many consider their second home and family. The class of 1984 is on its way to a new beginning, and in spite of the inevitable fear that is felt, most agree that Miami Valley has given them confi­ dence and a feeling of preparedness in taking on the challenges that lie ahead. This year's senior class is very grateful to all the teachers and friends who have contributed to each individual's MVS experience.

j.v. girls' tennis

The girls' junior varsity tennis team was eager and enthusiastic. With tw o seniors anchoring the team, the squad played well in its m atch足 es. As always, they played a tough schedule, but were able to hold their own throughout the season. Ellen Swelheim, the Assist student from Holland, played an important role in the season. Other players included Monica Single, Julie Bedford, Renu Singla, Kathy Franz, Susan Bozorgi, Ann Mantil, and Ginger Heyman. Coached by Mr. McCaslin, several of these girls will com pete for varsity spots next season.


This year's Varsity Girls' Tennis team ended its sea足 son with a record of '15-5. Everyone did quite well. Perhaps the highlight, or a t least the most memora足 ble match of the season, was our last match against Middletown Madison. We traveled an hour to the school following some rather questionable directions. We finally arrived to find only three tennis courts full of cracks and with sagging nets. By 7:15 pm we had all finished playing except Ellen Swelheim who was struggling in the deciding match. The team cheered her on anxiously and a little bit impa足 tiently, as it was getting cold, dark, and the girls were hungry. Finally the match ended, MVS having lost 2-3. We headed for the van only to discover that someone (Who was that someone? Lisa?! Jennifer?l)has locked the keys in the van. The team found this quite humorous, but Mr. Romeo thought otherwise, exclaiming, "*#@ [*c;[ I don't belive this [* # & [" After a while of prying the rubber around the windows with a hanger, we manged to open the van and thus headed home, concluding our most enjoyable season.

j.v. boys' soccer


Despite a less than impressive record, the 1983 Junior Varsity Boys' soccer team will grow and becom e a strong Varsity team in years to come. The young never gave up hope and went into each contest with the intention to win. The team always gave one hundred per足 cent, which unfortunately was not good enough against tough opponents like Fairmont and Chamlnode. Coached by Peter Camm and Brian Czarnota, the team anticipated an undefeated season much like the 1982 sev足 enth and eighth grade team which was also coached by Camm and Czarnota. This Junior Varsity season was a good learning exper足 ience for the newcomers to high school soc足 cer.


While the final record for the season was just barely over the five hundred mark, this v^as undoubtedly one of the best, if not the best, seasons ever at Miami Valley School. Strong play from a core of devoted seniors, support­ ed by a quickly developing corps of under­ classmen, made Coach Brereton's team a recognized force in the city of Dayton. A series of heartbreaking ties kept this team from hav­ ing the best record in the history of the school. The team finished second to Troy in an invita­ tional tournament to open the season. Tom Elmer v^as named co-holder of the Most Valu­ able Player Award. All City recognition cam e to five members of the team: First Team, Tom Elmer and goalie, Scott MacDonald; Second Team, Halfbacks Greg Ailing and Tom Seidensticker; and Honorable Mention, fullback Todd Long. Freshman David Dieruf emerged as a player to be w atched in the future.

This year was certainly an interesting one for the Varsity Girls' soccer team. Starting out with a handful of girls, the team gained size and strength as the season progressed. The line-up for the Rams was made up of several returning players, including co-captains Jenny Arnett and Beth Duke, as well as many new freshmen. Under the direction of Coach Julie Roth, an experienced player herself, the team worked hard. The girls tried many new strategies and gained a lot of experience, Let's hope they keep up the good work!

j.v. boys' basketba

The Junior Varsity experienced one of its finest seasons ever, the victor in eight out of four­ teen games, the first winning season for this team in years. The whole basketball program plagued with injuries, the team was often a t a disadvantage. Quarters had to be saved so that some boys would be able to assist the varsity contests. First-year coach Mike Bal­ dridge was pleased with his team's perfor­ mance this year, as he and the players en­ joyed more success than expected. Jon Free­ man and Craig Young catalyzed the team to victory, while Forrand Smith, John Sweeney, Steve Rosenberg, and Todd Greenberg all contributed positively. Senior Jon Beck was lost midway through the season, and several others were hbmpered from the start. The team's highlight was its biggest victory, against Bethesda, os everyone scored and played beautifully.


Varsity basketball began with great anticipa­ tion and strong potential, and the season soon turned the desires into realities. Fourteen pow ­ erful wins shadowed just three losses, one of which was avenged against Seven Hills in the final game of the regular season. Hosts of offensive and defensive records were reset this season, including rebounding, scor­ ing, assists, and steals. Tom Elmer, George Sherer, and Greg Ailing led the team as sen­ iors, as did Jon Fredlund, Mark McGuire, James Moore, and Jason Thomas in each of their im­ portant positions on the team. For only the second time in school history, the boys' team won in the first round of the sec­ tional tournament, even without leading scor­ er McGuire. The team hoped to continue the winning through as many games in the tourna­ ment as possible.

Last year's lack of early participants was dras­ tically offset this season, as a host of young, eager players joined the MVS squad. The en­ thusiasm of the newcomers was greatly ap­ preciated by Bill Giisson and the returning varsi­ ty players Jenny Stein, Julie Krumholz, Lisa Dieruf, and Dana McKenney. The results were wholly positive, even though the record was 46. Practices were filled with fun, and each game was a new experience. Coach Giisson enjoyed the girls as he helped them becom e a better team. The season ended in the first round of the sec­ tional tournament, as the team performed bril­ liantly. The girls held tough, surprising the much more experienced National Trail team. Unfor­ tunately, the MVS opponents tallied more points, yet the scoreboard hardly reflected the value earned in those three winter months.

It has been a "dream " of mine to com e to the United States since the fifth grade; finally my "dream ” has com e true. It has been one of the biggest experiences of my life. I learned to understand the American people, the culture, and the school system. The school was my biggest experience — I actually did five hours of homework in one night. In German I spoke to Dagmar, a former ASSIST student from Co­ logne, who told me that everybody works about fours hours a day for school. I thought she was trying to scare me or it was all a big joke. I did not run away (I told my mama if I would have to do more than tw o hours of homework she would have me back in Co­ logne after tw o weeks). I worked and man­ aged to fulfill the expectations. Another inter­ esting experience was the close relationship betw een teachers and students, a very pleas­ ant experience. 1 w ant to thank all of the teachers and students. I hope to m eet all of you again, Special thanks to the Youngs who acce pted me as a member of the family. Thank you very much Mom, Rusty, Sandra, and Amos. You made this year, with your understanding, a wonderful one! Thanks to alt, and good lucki

Ellen Swelheim

A year aw ay is a great experience. That is what they told me it would , and they were right. It is a great experience — to m eet new people from a different country, to live with different families, and to be in a school like Miami Valley. My first reaction to school was that the rela­ tionship between teachers and students is something to be proud of, and so is the rela­ tionship between students. I will miss these re­ lationships when I return to my home. Hugging in the hallway is a more typical greeting for MVS students than a romantic display. In the beginning of the year, the great amount of homework was overwhelming to me. The understanding of many people helped me a lot. But not only with homework, but also many other things that can be hard when you com e to a different country. But people know and understand. 1 had fun being on the school teams —- the American fanatics — in tennis and basketball. Even though we did not have a winning sea­ son it was fun to be part of the team. This whole year is a great experience. Enjoying school is importdnt because most of my time is spent in school. This is definitely a growing ex­ perience. Thanks for hosting me. Go MVSI!
