This is who we are. P.K. Yonge Seniors of 2003.
Finally, we are able to reflect on our past 13 years filled with experiences
that made us stronger, memories that will last a life time, and knowledge
that will guide us throughout the rest of our lives. Looking back on the past
there are aspects of our high school career that we would change, if
possible. But at the same time, as we look back on our past, we realize
that these experiences and life-changing events happen to everyone.
Hearing about "YONGE"r students' lives is complete deja vu: the difficult
classes of Mr. Steele, who is taking who to the 8th grade social, and the
numerous attempts to make it to one of the Senior parties. These life
lessons, that at times have turned into mistakes, have transformed us into
the people we have become. We've been there, done that, and THIS
IS WHO WE ARE!

My favorite thing about out of
school time is....
Outside of School
Summer and Weekends
When at school, most everyone acts different than their
usual selves in any other environment. We have to conform
into the one massive title as students ofP.K. Yonge" instead
of individuals. The way we act, our schedules, and even how
we dress is constantly monitored. For the six hours of the
day that the school owns us, we morph into the student mold,
slaving away at schoolwork and abiding by rules as well as
we can. The only times when we are truly relaxed is during
the weekly breaks from Friday to Sunday and during
summertime. What is different about students during these
times is the ambiguous ways they chose to spend their free
time. Partying, vegging out in front of the television, spending
time with friends and significant others outside of school, and
traveling out of town are just a few of the activities students
chose for recreation. But almost always, we can be expected
to have fun.

It seems as though it was just yesterday when the class of 2003 were freshman.
Those days, seniors drove to school in bikini tops and traveled off campus for
lunch. High school life was very different back then. Coming to school was so
much more exciting when we were younger. Nobody wanted to miss the classes
that had seniors in them. We wanted them to like us, and we didn't want them to
think of us as little kids with early curfews. We admired them. We tried to impress
them After all, they were the "Old" seniors.
Three years later, we are the seniors, and we no longer feel excited about our
first period civics class with "you know who" in it. As we sleep-in as often as
possible and walk the halls with an infinitive amount of confidence, we can't help
wondering if the freshman gaze atus with the same admiration we had for the class
Still, the stress that defines senior year is indescribable. With so many
deadlines, it's hard to come to school more than four times a week. And checking
out for lunch is so tempting. Although we feel like 13 years of school is just way
too much, we are all dreading the day when we have to say good-bye to the great
people we have learned to love as a family.

all my brothers, and my sisters, and me!
To be a part of the P.K. Yonge Family, one doesn't have to be blood related.
Whether you came in Kindergarten or 9th grade, becoming a part of the family only requires
you being yourself. But sometimes it's a bit easier to fit in when you have a sibling that has
already been attending the school.
Aside from the blood families that attend P.K., another type of family is formed over
the years. P.K. is unique in man% \% as -, but one example is the fact that the school is so
small and intimate that a family bond is fonned. Many of the students ha\ e attended here
since elementary, letting us know each other on an extremely personal level. As for those
who came in the middle school and high school years, these students eventually earn the
love and respect of a family member.

The first day of school is
extremely difficult regardless
of how you look at it: new
faces with names you need to
learn, new classes with
unfamiliar teachers leading
them, and unknown halls with
new doors along the side and
at the end. Then, over a
thousand days later, the last
day of school arrives, and in
many ways, those days can
present more hurdles to
overcome than that first day
of school ever did.

Full Of Rituals
After the yearly trip to Washington D. C., the fifth graders return to P.K. to
make the journey to sixth grade as they literally "Cross the Creek." Then, in
sixth grade, everyone travels to the West Side park and pool. The last great
traditional transition from middle school to high school is the anxiously awaited
eighth grade social.
And finally, we're brought into high school, an event in itself. I'm sure that no
one will forget their freshman year. For the first time, we attended every football
game, hoping that the seniors would notice when we walked past the field. Then,
there is everyone's dream of walking on the Homecoming court with the select
few who receive this privilege. At the annual pep rally, High Tide, mustering up
the courage to appear in front of the entire school and perform a skit that isn't
making fun of anyone required nerves of steel. During the Homecoming parade,
students always obtain the chance to make their own float while the audience in
the street awaits a wave from the Homecoming queen.
By far, the biggest ritual in any high school life is PROM! As a freshman or a
sophomore, it is normal to hope and pray that an upperclassman will invite you
to the prom. Then, when the year comes and you are finally a junior or senior,
you no longer have to worry about dates because your class is on top! This is
the only time that we dance all night with friends and refuse to care how stupid
everyone looks. Last, but not least, is graduation. It is amazing every year how
many students come to graduation to support the graduating class. Attending
P.K. means that you know everyone and look forward to every ritual from as early
as kindergarten. By Lauren Lehman

We are the lifers of 2003! We are a
family formed over thirteen grueling but fun and
rewarding years. For lifers, P K. Yonge has not
just been a school, but a home as well. It is a
place we have relied on for comfort; a place
where we have learned significant lessons about
friends, family, love, and life.
Since kindergarten, we have played
together, napped together, and learned the
importance of sharing. Who can forget cooking in
Mrs. Wigger's class, attending Mrs. Litzkow's
science club, or wondering why Jeremy and Elliott
Martin pulled the fire alarm on the Safety Patrol
field trip to Washington D. C. I have so
many memories from the Peek Across the
Creek, the 8th grade Social, and my first day
of high school. It is so hard to describe the way
I feel now that it's almost over. Soon, I will be
leaving the halls and classrooms that I have
memorized like the back of my hand.
In our last days here at P.K. Yonge, we
have laughed and cried with the anticipation of
what is to come next. For those of us who have
spent our lives here, our senior year has
continued as a whirlwind of emotions. To the
lifers of 2003, thank you for the wonderful
memories and the heart felt experiences. I
hope we may always consider ourselves

new traditions of our own.

laughter, tears, new hopes and
dreams. Being a junior marked
our realization that we only had
one more year left in our high
school career. The world that
we have built in the classrooms
and in the halls is coming to an
end. With only a year left with

It takes hard work and dedication...

We are Blue Wave football
.... We are Continuing To Dominate
Coming into 2002, the
Blue Wave Varsity Football
team possessed the ambition
to win a state championship.
With strength and honor, we
had only one goal in mind:
"Dominate." With veteran
Coach John Clifford
continuing the excellent
tradition of P.K.Yonge
football, we had no worries of
successful season. The
Varsity team was lead by
many Blue Wave athletes.
For example, Jeremy Martin
at quarterback, Eric "Jewce"
Jewell at receiver, Eric "E-
Rut" Rutledge at half-back
and, Elliott "E-Train" Martin at
center and middle linebacker.
These outstanding players
set the pace for the most
exciting and successful
season at P.K. Yonge.
The Blue Wave team
was fully aware of the top
ranked teams in their
schedule, but they were
hardly phased by their
opponents. "We are really
good this year because we
practice extremely hard, and
we come together as a
family," said Senior Elliott
Martin. Eric Jewel, one of the
most outstanding football
players on the squad,
explained, "We are so
successful this year because
more people tried out and
many of them stepped it up
during big time games."
Confidence is a word that
every Blue Wave player had
in mind. We are very exited
for this year's team. We Are
Blue Wave Football.

JV Blue Wave Football
... Preparing for the Future
The P.K.Yonge's J.V. Football team had an
exciting year and a winning season. With the
classic rivalry game against Hawthorne as the
season opener, the yonge Blue Wave team knew
they would have a successful year. Bishop Kenny
came up next on the schedule and provided the
Blue Wave with a win over top-notch competition.
The rising rivalry aganist Union County didn't result
in a win, however, the yonge kids got a taste of high
level football as the Tigers are always very strong.
The Blue Wave team, coached by the
veteran Sloan Anderson, kept the tradition alive as
being one of the top JV programs around. At the
same time the yonge kids are giving Coach Clifford
a great future and players to step up on Varsity next
season. The Blue Wave J.V. team was lead by
many outstanding players such as Derrick Robinson
at quarterback, who spent time as a big
playmaker for the Varsity squad at the
end of the season. Jesse Hughes at full Date
back, and Tray Rapczac at receiver.
The 4-2 record this season gives the Sept. 1:

With the experience of back-to-back final four appearances, the Blue Wave
girls' volleyball team hungers to get back to the state finals. With five returning starters,
and eight returning players in total, the team is building off of its wealth of experience.
Seniors Danielle DeGrove and Lauren Lehman, along with juniors Michelle Whitney,
Jules NeSmith, and Marcie Hampton, play a strong roll in knowing what it takes to get to
state championship level. "It is great to be part of such a strong group of players who
want to be the best that they can possibly be," stated coach Laurie Obreza. Coach
Obreza is new to P.K. Yonge and it's dynamic volleyball program, but calmly suggests
that inheriting such a prestigious program was "both exciting and challenging." With
leaders Marcie Hampton, the one to follow, Nirelle Hampton, the quarterback, and Lauren
Lehman, the nurturer, the team is in very good hands.

Every great varsity team needs a reserve of good, young players in its
program's ranks. These girls are just that. With multiple players returning
from last year, the J.V. girls' volleyball team is more than ready for any
competition that may come their way, and for that matter, anything in the
future as well. These girls are setting their goals higher because they
know what lies ahead of them. Previous teams have set the standard
with their expert play and attention to detail; a blueprint for the team to
follow. The team has displayed magnificent signs with impressive wins in
their quest for greatness.

The 2002-2003 cheer season started early with practice every week during the summer, and cheerleaders
attending camps to learn and perfect routines. The squad had a new sponsor, Coach Cari Delatorre, who
also served as a new coach, bringing new ideas, experience and leadership into the squad. "This year has
been a real learning experience. I never realized how frustrating coaching can be, along with how
rewarding it can be," stated Coach Delatorre.
Captain Brittany Williams and Co-Captain Tamera Crockrell also brought skill and insight to the
season. "Being a captain on Varsity this year has had its trials and tribulations. But as a squad, we are
closer for it," says Junior Tamera Crockrell. The squad is made up mostly of veteran Varsity and JV
cheerleaders, with only a few newcomers. Having this experience made it possible for the girls to perform
more advanced and difficult routines and stunts then in past seasons.
All of the girls agree that having a football team as talented as PK Yonge's makes it easy to be
enthusiastic and spirited about the team. With yet another undefeated regular season for the football
team, the girls cheered the players on every step of the way. Students could always see the girls going all
out and working hard, whether it is at a game, in a pep rally, or at High Tide. Due to all of the squad's hard
work and determination, the Varsity cheerleaders were a major component to the success of P.K.
Yonge's football and basketball seasons. So, "Hey,

classifications, this team has the capabilities to be a major
