Hawk's super-season ends at Conant Wayne Coble "We've played great this year, just great, and these girls have absolutely nothing to be ashamed of," said Coach Mike Deines shortly after his team's heartbreaking 39-33 loss to Maine West Monday night. Maine West controlled the tempo of the game, and forced the quickness of the Hawks into submission. Led by sophomore sensation, guard Nancy Kennelly, 19 points and 5 assists, they took the Hawks right out of their game. Gay Crain added 12 for the Warriors. Mary Carroll countered with 13 for the Hawks and Liz Ciprian added 12. Maine West jumped to a 12-4 lead early in the first half, but the Hawks came back to tie the score at 14 on an 8-foot jumper by Pam Juckett to end the half. The Hawks were sparked by Mary Carroll and Liz Ciprian who each scored 4 in the run. Maine West came out in the second half and

continued to hit from the outside, extending their lead. The Hawks rallied, but it was too little, too late. Coach Deines added that this was the best year in Maine South basketball since 1979. He also added that,"We made the Sweet 16, and though I wish we could have gone on, we proved that we were one of the best teams in the state." The girls headed into Monday night's action with a 26-2 record on the season, the best ever by a girls varsity basketball team here, which also ranked them number 2 in the state in the last poll of the season. During the season the team has broken three records: most wins, 26; longest win streak, 22; and fewest points allowed in a game, 12 versus Highland Park. The team also won their first sectional championship with their 40-38 win over New Trier. Coach Deines feels that the tournament is "an extremely balanced pool of teams" with

no real standout among the remaining teams. Any team with a good performance can win it all. Two of the better teams remaining teams are East St. Louis-Lincoln and Marshall. East St. Louis has only loss on the season, a setback at the hands of Teutopolis (ranked number 1 in Qass A) in the last week of the seaspn, which dropped them from their year-long number 1 ranking in state. Marshall is the defendii^g champion, and is led by Cheryl Porter, who is a returning All-State and All-American player. Coach Mike Deines took a very balanced team into tournament play. Their opposition has been unable to key in on just one player, because all have the ability to break a game open. This fact is evidenced by scoring during the tournament, where Lisa Hennessey scored 25 points (career-high) against Niles North, Mary Carroll scored 21 against Regina, ^nd continued on page 6...

Commentary

March 21, 1986

Stormy Weather

Growing up old-fashioned Just iil<e Dad It was a very strange thing. Well, I guess it wasn't ail that strange in itself, but it got me thinking. Last summer we took a family vacation to Colorado. We all piled into a van and drove for about 18 or 20 hours straight. Of course, we stopped for food and washrooms and all that, but we never stopped to sleep. We drove straight through, so people were getting on each other's nerves. Well, as you might guess, each of our musical tastes varied tremendously, so, to make it fair, the rule became "the driver chooses the music that will be played for his or her alotted two hour shift." This didn't present too much of a problem at first. I could handle Mom's John Denver for some time, and they could listen to some of my jazz and big band tapes. But then it happened: I popped in my good old U2 tape. That did it. "What is this?! That stuff is horrible!" my dad said. Even my 21 year-old brother got into it with, "This is garbage, Steve." "You guys said that the driver decides and I'm the driver now!" I said. My dad immediately dispelled my belief in a "democratic" family vacation. "Steve, this stuff is painful," he said. "Turn it off, will you? (not really asking) Can't you just put on your Sinatra tape or something?" "Dad, there is a time for Sinatra and a time for U2." Anyhow, this got me thinking about how real the generation gap is. My dad labeled my music 'bad' because it didn't sound pleasing to

by Steve Slaughter him. It didn't matter that the lyrics might be it isn't violent or anything. I'm not planning meaningful; the music was unpleasant and that's all that mattered to him. I'm not, in any on wearing rouge (except on stage) but who way, saying that that is bad. It is just where knows, maybe my son will wear it. I can't say he's coming from, that's all. He was a "Happy that I'd be too happy about that, but we've got Days" teenager and jitterbugged to Rock to let people be themselves. Have you ever thought about what it will be Around the Clock when that son of stuff was brand new, not played by Dick Biandi (one of like when we are the parents? One of my my personal favorite D.J.'s even though he's greatest fears is that I will grow old-fashioned old and not very funny anymore.) on Magic when I'm a father. Who knows, maybe on a aoss country road trip my son will listen to 104. guys making weird chicken noises or So my dad was brought up dancing to the something. You laugh, but that's not all that music, not listening to deep undertones and messages. They didn't write music to different from some of today's punk. Maybe they will go back to big band music the same wav we listen to some of the fifties stuff.

"Each generation has their own rebellion, and it's silly for parents to try and stifle it."

philosophize over; they wrote it to dance to. Songs like See Ya' Later, Alligator and Lollypop. They have no real meaning at all, but that is perfealy all right; they're not supfMJsed to. It is funny how when someone is a teenager, whatever decade that may be, they are rebels. Whether it be women wearing pants in the early 1900's or going to an Elvis concert as your parents condemned his risque use of the pelvic thrust or the thought of guys wearing makeup in the 80's. It's really all the same. Each generation has their own rebellion and it's silly for parents to try to stifle it, as long as

Student Council visits Evanston Dear Students,

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to go to a different school? Well, Maine South's Student Council sponsors several student exchanges to different high schools. Last month five Maine South students had the opportunity to visit Evanston Township High School for a day. Evanston differs in many ways from Maine South. First of all, the school is almost twice the size of Maine South. Parts of the school are over 100 years old. Instead of one big cafeteria, there are four medium sized ones. In each cafeteria, different foods are offered, and in each one there are candy and pop vending machines. The school also has an outdoor smoking lounge, fireplaces, and a planetarium with a huge telescope. The freshmen at Evanston are sectioned off in their own freshmen school, which is still part of the whole school. All their classes are located there and the freshmen are not allowed to leave the section with the exception of gym. Evanston has an eight period day. Another difference in the school is that there is no homeroom system. The students attend their

lirst period class first thing in the morning which is definitely an advantage if you have first period free. Instead of homeroom, third period is extended and the school bulletin is read to students.

The security is very strict at Evanston. Many large, hired security guards roam the halls. If anyone is found without a pass, he is sent to the security office. Although the atmosphere out of class is tense, the classroom atmosphere is very laid back. The classes are smaller and more relaxed which made them easier and more comfortable to learn in. The teachers seem to understand the students more and the student/faculty ratio is smaller. Even the gym classes are more enjoyable since they are co-ed. Visiting another school is a very worthwhile experience. Observing the various similarities and differences between Maine South and the school is interesting. That is why Student Council takes the time to organize these exchanges; to find new ways to make Maine South a better place. Student Council

Whatever happens, I hope that we remember what it's like to be a kid when we are the parents. It'll happen a lot sooner than you think. And when we are the parents, let's hope we accept our kids for what they are instead of expecting them to act like we did. One strange thing to consider: when your kid plays his (or her) music and you cringe at it's weirdness, do you know what you'll say? You will say, "The music when I was a kid was so much better than this, groups like the Violent Femmes and the Police." "The Police?!!" your kids will laugh. "What a stupid name." You will turn on Magic 104 and Dick Biandi (who'U be older yet and still not very funny) will announce, "Here's one that goes way back to 1985, New Year's Day by U2."

â&#x20AC;˘ Cliques make teens feel secure by Suzette Baeckelandt Many people have their own set of friends with whom they associate both in and out of school. Some people would just call it "the gang," while others call it "social status," but most call it "a clique." Cliques are sometimes destroyers of potential friendships. For one, cliques exclude many people with whom you may otherwise get to know. Cliques also show one's conformity and one's inability to be an individual.

Waiting for the Sun <

Cliques are, for the most part, a security blanket from the rest of the world. They are protectors from the feeling of rejection and from the fear of being alone. To get down to the point they are a means for people to feel secure, popular, or just not alone and rejected. Basically, the majority of people dislike cliques. Still, many people form their own cliques. Why? Mrs. Natalie Dranoff, school social worker, explains that teens form groups because, "they are insecure and they feel safe

when in a clique. But as soon as relationships or groups become exclusive, then there's a problem." She explains that once people cut off other relationships just to be in one group it stops their own growing. She says, "It validates you as a person." Cliques become dangerous when you're trapped by other people's values. However, cliques, in ways, help to form close friendships. These friends you can usually count on in very difficult times.

Dreaming classes away by Karen Davlin Have you ever fallen asleep in class and slept so soundly that you not only have full-fledged dreams, but you actually think you're home in bed? The scary part is waking up and instead of seeing the familiar furniture in your room, you pick your head up to meet the back of some chick's head. That can freak anyone out. The last time that happened to me, I was so disoriented and confused to see so many people in my bedroom that I had to ask one of them what was going on. There is a definite art to sleeping in class. I have a little practice in my background, but I'm nowhere near some of the experienced experts in our school. I always have the worst luck while I'm incoherent. For example, I'll be all settled and comfy and doze off and all of a sudden I'll wake up to the feeling that I'm about to fall out of the chair. (Can't they design Maine South desks a little better? Those open sides are extremely dangerous, don't you think?) Then I'll be wide awake, with my face down into the book on my desk. Did the teacher see that? Maybe he thinks 1 just shifted a little in my chair. No, he's more apt to think I'm epileptic or something. Slowly I pick my head up, slowly I lift my eyes to meet the direct glare of the teacher. Oh no! Still, of course, I try to reason to myself that maybe it could have looked like an innocent shift in the chair...It's sort of like the stupid reasoning people have when they think that if they keep pushing the elevator button it will get there faster. That really kills me.

Those are pretty common. But this guy was witnessed in some pretty wild situations! Once he fell asleep on a newspaper and woke up with newsprint on his face! Then there was the time he had his head back almost to the person behind him with his face up to the ceiling. It amplified his snoring quite a bit. The best time, though, was when he had a book standing on his desk open and he fell asleep with his nose resting on top of the binding. He slept to long that his nose got all wrinkly and bent up and it looked like he had run his face into a wall. That guy was amazing. 1 always wondered how he managed to wake up and head on to his next class each period. Come to think of it, I haven't seen that guy in school in the longest time...he may have fallen asleep in gym or something. Maybe he was in the guys locker room and dozed off and no one ever bothered to wake him. Hmm. I'll be sure to check into that one... Some people really have mastered the art of sleeping in class. There's this guy that was in one of my classes last year that slept constantly. He was always sleeping! He must've stayed up all night or something, because he got plenty of rest at school. Anyway, this guy could sleep in a million different positions. There are the conventional ones: head on one arm, head buried in both hands(you get a stupid looking red mark on your forehead with that one), and the most insulting one to the teacher, head boldly planted face-down on top of desk.

Senior Mary Carroll goes up game against St. Scholastica. for a shot In their first regional The Hawks won 79-25.

Super stats spell relief "We're past the day when it's not acceptable to be a girl athlete," said Miss Kaye Pierce, chairman of the girls' physical education department. "One of the strongest programs in the state" has developed over the years at Maine South. In the last ten years alone Maine South's girls team have captured 21 conference titles, 18 district championships, and a total of 20 regional and sectional titles. Unlike other schools with one strong sport, Maine South has, in recent years, enjoyed success year round. The swim team has been one of the top 10 teams in Illinois since 1972, placing in the top three five of those years. Badminton, softball, and volleyball have also ranked among the top four teams in recent years. continued on pg. 5...

South JETS rank third in competition On Feb. 21 Maine South made its premier team appearance in the annual J.E.T.S. (Junior Engineering Technical Soceity) competition. Located this year at Triton College, the competition tested the academic ability of area high schools. Area high schools sent 12 selected students to compete in the subjects of math, chemistry, physics, biology, English, and engineering graphics. These students competed both as individuals and as a team.

The team was composed of seniors Steve Brumm, Lisa Conn, John Folan, Paul Fonte, Vince Gortner, Mark Hansen, Louis Karnezis, Krys Kazmierczak, Bert Lindgren, Mike Polizzi, Christine Shaeffer, Laura Smals, and Rob Zajak. The Maine South team ranked third overall in addition to the individual second ranking in chemistry by Bert Lindgren and a first place in biology by Krys Kazmierczak.

Project BIG to Cast prepares spring musical offer guidance District 207's annual student career night. Project BIG, will be held on Wed., March 26 from 7-9 p.m. at Maine South. At Project BIG students will have the opportunity to discuss both the benefits and drawbacks of specific occupations with representatives ranging from floral designers to morticians. In addition to learning what skills are needed for a career students will also learn what aptitude, training, and education are needed for success. Other aspects such as salary, fringe benefits, and opportunity for advancement will also be made available from the more than 200 trade, technical, business, medical and professional careers that will attend. Among the representatives at the event will be disc jockeys Mark Sebastian and Carla Boex and news reporters Karen Hand and Mike Elston from WBBM-FM radio station. Everyone, not only students of Maine Township high schools are invited, but juniors are especially encouraged to attend since this year marks the beginning of a new two-year program. If the new two-year cycle is adopted, the first year would maintain the traditional Project BIG concept of evaluating and comparing the rewards and drawbacks of different occupations. The second year could provide programs which would allow students to learn indepth information about selected careers.

"It's a lot of work, but worth every bit of it," says junior Ann Heurich about her recent involvement in this year's Broadway musical Hello Dolly. The musical, to be presented in late April and early May, is an adaption of Thorton Wilder's The Matchmaker. It takes place in New York City in the 1890's. Dolly Gallager Levi (Tina McGarry/ Sara Cycholl) is a widow who makes her living by meddling in people's lives, but she tends to get too involved with her clients. One of Dolly's clients is the wealthy Horace Vandergelder (George Brandt/ Steve Slaughter). She is trying to find him a wife but finds herself in love with him. The adventures begin when two of Mr. Vandergelder's employees, Cornelious Hackl (Darren Bochat/ Mark Lundell) and Bamaby Tucker (Jeff Burgis/ Steve Engel), sneak out of Vandergelder's store to see New York. They meet two women, Irene Molloy (Ann Heurich/ Anne Burswold) who owns a hat shop and

their assistant Minnie Fae (Jenny Drozd/ Michelle Rante). Other cast member include Wayne Goble, Troy McLennen, Vicki Skoczylas, Maura Scott, Allison Heitzman, Kim Grichnik, Meg Parsons, and Dawn Baudek. The stage director is Mr. Don Martello and vocal direction will be given by Mr. Irwin Bell and Mr. Walter Flechsig. This year's student directors are Kate Ranft and Lynne Neubert. Melinda McCormick will be prompting. The set will be made by the crew. Each scene has a crew head and crew workers to build it. The crew heads are; Jenine Smith, Dennis Funk, Kevin McAlhaney, Brian Rogers, Mike Funk, Eric Field, Mike Fox, Eric Peterson, Tnd Laura McCabe. The feeling of everyone involved is expressed by Tina McGarry. "Evrybody is really excited and we're ready to work hard to make the show the best it can be."

Girls prove talent ...continued from page 3 This year, over 700 girls' basketball teams entered the state tournament. Last week when the girls beat New Trier and won their first sectional title, they became one of the top 16 teams in Class AA. What lies behind the continuous strength of Maine South girls' athletics? Miss Pierce feels that the "finest people are working in this program." Specifically, Miss Pierce adds that the basketball team is "a group of people who really care about each other and that shows on the court." Senior Pam Juckett who plays both basketball and Softball agreed with Miss Pierce in attributing some of the success to the coaches. "Our coaches see more than just the player. They see the whole person, the grades, the family, and the athlete." Of course, glory of victory does not belong exculsively to the coaches. Sherri Herbert, a member of the soccer and basketball teams, feels "the good athletes in our school also consistantly contribute. We all know each other and work well together." Miss Pierce commented that the linkage between coach and athlete at Maine South has been very successful. And, with the girls basketball team in the super-sectionals, it would be hard to disagree.

Jr. leaders picked The girls' physical education department has recently announced the new junior leaders for the '86-'87 school year.
