Hailing ii out. Confident Green Dein
cheerleaders watch Red Machine's home-
coming routine. They are anticipating
their turn to "shake" into the spotlight and
once again stun their audience. Good
things come to those who wait.

Free spirit. An objective of the year's pep
rallies was to promote competition among
classes. Aliesha Ave-Lallement entices
each class with her "spirit stick" and raises
the noise level in the stands, proving that
all that glitters is gold.

And Ready To Go

Student Life

Student life without the
students themselves is
I about as exciting and
interesting as a bowl of

What exactly is student
life? The lives of students?
Student life includes a lot
more than that. But just
what exactly is it? Since you
don't know, you seek the ad-
vice of older, wiser, more
experienced persons, the
editors. They tell you that
it's a good question. Then
they smile. Behind those
smiles lurk the evil slave dri-
vers that will overwork, nag,
and push you relentlessly -
all to meet the deadlines.
"Brainstorm," they say.
"All right, what do students
do with their lives?"
"They go to football
games." you reply.
"No," the wise ones say,
"that's sports."
"Sports?" you ask. "Well
how about plays? Students
do plays."
"No, that's clubs. Drama
(Now we start to get hos-
"Well what about taking
things like the SAT and
"Wel ..."
"Wait," you interrupt,
"don't say it. Academics,

right?" After getting a big
smile, you finally ask, "So
what does constitute student
"You know," they say,
"that's a good question."
Then they smile. Those
smiles can drive you crazy
- but that's not the point.
So you begin to wonder
how you're supposed to
know what to cover in the
student life section if you
don't even know what it
means. You stare at your
pencil, in hopes that it will
burst forth with some en-
lightening scribble. It fails;
it is too quiet with nobody
scream-about what the
weekend was like. There is
nobody mad at so-and-so
because so-and-so is such an
... It's just too quiet. Final-
ly, a conclusion is reached.
Student life without the stu-
dents themselves is just as
exciting and interesting as a
bowl of oatmeal. Cold oat-
meal, at that. So were you
right the first time? Student
life at BHS is simply the
lives of its students? That
sounds too easy but that's
the point.

Gotcha! After failing to hit Patricia

Stepping long may seem like a short cut
towards the end, but sophomore President

~swrT -"

Pepping Up For
"WE have a pep rally today? During
sixth?" Yes, we sure do. Or did. The Jambo-
ree pep rally was held on Friday, August 31.
The sun was hot, the cheerleaders were ready,
and were leaving the sophomores a little
dazed. The natives were getting restless.
Sack races for the students and teachers,
lemon walks, three-legged races, class waves
... Everyone was afraid they'd find them-
S selves suddenly volunteered and out on the
field. In their element, Seniors were relaxed-
they had been there before. A wave? No
problem. Out to score points, juniors
screamed, yelled, and waved. Still dazed,
sophomores seemed lost. A hocking voice of
doom came from nowhere with a reprimand. t
S "Sophomores, this is NOT junior high any- s
more! You are in the big leagues now. Let's
get with it here ... I want to see a wave!"
The voice commands sophomores obey.
"Better ... but NOT good enough!" Oh,

The Jamboree

Really? Torture? Well, the teachers were
not immune. Sack race. Three "volunteered"
teachers went head to head.
"Come on Mr. Cowley! Go!" The crowd
roared. Always a crowd pleaser, Mr. Cowley
steadily hippitty hopped along.
The race finished. The people stopped yell-
ng. OK, time to go home. What had this pep
rally accomplished? People were exhausted,
messy and sweaty .. but motivated. As the
crowd dissipated ... there was hope. Hope
hat your favorite team would win and maybe
ome hope that these people would all show
up at the actual game. Lots of hope. And so
he Jamboree pep rally kicked off the football


Spirit Days...

Barely awake on Monday
morning, you peer at the sign near
your locker. What is this? Beach
day? Hat and tie day? Hippie
day? THEME DAY? You don't
even know what your theme is yet!
Wait a minute. This is for Home-
coming isn't it?
Looking into a showcase you
see an aluminum foil covered
bridge and a map of Panama. Ah
... junior theme. "My Name Is
Exploring a little further down
the hallway, you discover palm
fronds falling from the ceiling.
They look dangerous. Looking
into the showcase, you find more
decaying plant life and a broken
sign reading "Welcome to the
Jungle"-the sophomore theme.
Well, they got that right! Trying
to keep ahead of the spirit game is
not as easy as it seems. Ok, so
what's the seniors' theme?
There is a mini bohio protrud-
ing from a case! Closer inspection
reveals a hammock and Barbies
playing volleyball in the sand with
giant flamingos. Obviously, the
seniors' theme has something to
do with the beach.
Feeling good about your pow-
ers of perception and observation,

you wander along. Coming back
the next day, most people are
draped in towels to cover their
bathing suits. (Hmm ... lots of
sunglasses. Good idea. You can't
do work if you can't see.)
Wednesday arrives-most people
are in hats and ties. One person
forgot the hat, but made up for it
by wearing ten ties. My, how am-
bitious. (You can't work if you
can't breathe.)
Thursday brings long-haired
weirdoes out of those old boxes in
closets. Hippies. Peace signs. Tie-
dye. Groovy. Funny jeans ... oh
my gosh! They are actually
straight-legged! (Wigs. Good
idea. You can't work if your hair
blocks your eyesight and when
you breathe it goes in your nose.
Hey! Watch it! You're shedding!)
By Friday, when theme day
rolls around, and seniors are in
bathing suits once again, juniors
in "My Name Is Panama" t-
shirts, and sophomore in ...
whatever they are in, the school is
too distracted to do anything.
You can feel it in the atmosphere.
So when the pep rally finally hap-
pens, people are screaming for no
specific reason.

Welcome to the Jungle. The sophomores
have succeeded in bringing the outside in,
but whether or not they can take it back
out, is another story.


"What's this thing with the fingers?"
Heidi Casperson whispers. "I have no
idea," answers Karl Marohl. "Smile."

.And Pep Rally

Tasty. Alix Puech gets more than just a sample of the
flavor of the month during the Homecoming pep rally's
pie-throwing contest. (She actually volunteered for this!)

"Oh, man ..." breathes every male creature
in the stadium as the cheerleaders wiggle their
stuff. Here we are once again, Friday, Novem-
ber 9, at another pep rally; only this time it's for
Homecoming and everyone is going all out!
"Ready ... set ... GO!" Pies go flying and
land smack in your face! But the pie goes well
with the egg shampoo job you got catching eggs
from three feet above you into a dinky cup in
your mouth. Next, you blow your heart out try-
ing to unearth the coin some malicious person
has buried in a mound of flour. When the con-
test is over, your ally, sympathizing with you
over your messy appearance, decides to add to
your new fashion statement by dumping the re-
maining flour onto your shirt. Mom will never
do your laundry for you again.
Besides wondering what other food will be
converted into weapons against sanity, the
crowd watches the new routines the cheer-
leaders have devised to boost out morale
through the use of standard cheerleader stuff
like pom-poms, cart-wheels, and lungs of steel.
Will this ever end?
The answer yet remains to be seen in the on-
going and forever continuing saga of life at

Destination unknown. With great skill, Nayat Martinez
cracks her egg, and aims. Although the egg landed in the

Midnight Masquerade

Homecoming 1991

A frantic phone call is made.
"He said he'd be here at five! He's not!
Maybe he's dead!"
"Sheila? I thought you were going to the
Homecoming dance."
"Jon's dead. Jon is not dead. Jon is dead. I
don't look good in black."
"You are going to the Homecoming dance
with Jon. He is not dead."
"Oh great. He stood me up. I'm dead. I'm
not dead ... HE'S dead!"
"I've been twisting the sequins on my dress
for days trying to line them up. And now I
won't even get to go."
"Sheila! What's your problem?"
"What? Hmm? Oh listen, you're going to
have to let me go now ... Jon's here. I'll see

you later."
"ME let YOU go! What ..."'Click' (It
was 5:04 p.m.)
The place was the PCC auditorium. The
event was the Homecoming dance on No-
vember 10, 1990. The theme was Midnight
Masquerade, and the masks on the wall
proved it. It was the best of times ... it was
the worst of times. Worst? Never! Just ask
anyone why they wanted to go in the first
place. Although Homecoming represented
the end of the football season. It also repre-
sented fresh starts and the first formal dance
of the year. It was where you went to meet up
with your friends, and it was a great place to
spend a Saturday night. And what actually
happened? The Homecoming court was
crowned while tears were shed, and the night
was danced away in festive glee.

Candygrams were bought up and sent out
to make the day of that special someone.
As Cupid waved goodbye, after another
year's hard work, and we cheerfully saw him
off, Valentine's Day drew to a close leaving

With the scent of evergreens in the
air, (hey, are you sure a corsage is
supposed to smell like that?) the spirit
of Christmas, if not exactly winter,
settled over the hearts and minds of
the students of BHS, as they got
ready for Winter Formal, December
15, 1990.
Simply getting ready was a monu-
mental task. Students seemed to be
all over the place as the tinsel was
hung. Shiny ribbons wound them-
selves around everything up to the
ceiling, and the miles of tape and glue
could have been enough to build an-
other Bridge of Americas!
Hey! It's not over yet! Quick! Get
those dresses cleaned along with the
tuxedoes! Get the flowers, get the
haircut you'd been putting off, get
your shoes shined, get the car in gear,

'Twas the day of Winter Formal. Jennifer
Brewer hangs tinsel by the entrance with

would be there.

and don't forget your date!
Once there, the happy mood domi-
nated. And why not? In three days,
the mid-year break would start, the
new year was just around the corner,
and as you smiled self-conciously for
your picture, you smugly reflected
that the presents had been stacking
up just screaming for an owner to
claim them.
In the meantime, you tugged at your
hair, wondering if you looked geeky,
and thought about all the good times -
surely not bad! 1990 had brought.
You watched your friends, who had
endured the year by your side. You
smiled inwardly; they looked funny all
dressed up. Almost ... well, geeky.
But who cared? They were beautiful
anyway, and it made such a nice pic-

Thinking of your personal safety, you let
him get on the Bomber first, and then quickly
took a seat as far away from him as possible.
You dreaded the worst. It happened. Spin-
ning around wildly, the guy next to you
clutched your thigh like he would never let
go. Suddenly, all the people on the ride began
to seem weird. You had to get off. Just then
you fell out of your seat and Conan the Bar-

you wearily sat down again hoping for the
nightmare to end. Miraculously, it did.

something to eat. Just as you took a refresh-

The annual Spanish Club event "Carnava-
lito" was held in conjunction with the French
Club's "Mardi Gras" at PCC auditorium on
February 23, 1991.
As the night began, the Spanish Club court
had a dance recital with the dancers in typi-
cal Panamanian costumes. The queen, Iliana
Rodriguez, and her escort performed "El
Punto" after which she was crowned by the
former queen, Carmen Ortiz. In her accep-
tance speech, she assigned each member of
her court a specific duty in her "kingdom."
The French Club then gave a speech about
the origins of Mardi Gras, and how it is cele-
brated. Door prizes were given out to the
winners. Some members of the French Club
had a kind of parade where the Mardi Gras
spirit shone through.
Costume prizes were taken away by Melis-
sa Bowman, who donned fruit on her head,
and Michelle Hayden, who came as a belly
With the music provided by the DJ "Any-
way," the night was danced away in a delight-
ful ambience.

smile to all her subjects.

Victories and defeats, games and

some, school would not be school
without the numerous athletic oppor-

To those involved in athletics, the
school day did not end at 2:30 pm.
Hours were spent training and work-

and drawbacks, but in retrospect, the
rewards were worth it all.
Being involved in athletics, either
as a player or a coach, enriched one's
involvement with the school. Sports
did more than foster a healthy life-
style. Athletic involvement in high
school made a student more well-

and for many, provided an important
sense of belonging (to the team.)

An Incomparable
The Cayuco Race is an event
that occurs annually and is one
that requires a great amount of
endurance, commitment, and
time. The race is a very unique
experience because this is the only
place in the world where you have
a chance to paddle in wooden
"logs" down a world waterway.
When you mention it to somebody
who lives out of Panama, you usu-
ally get a look of disbelief and a
sarcastic, "What?". It is definite-
ly agreed that the cayuco race in
an incomparable event.
For those of you who are not
aware of what the Cayuco Race
is, it is a three-day race from the
Atlantic side of the isthmus to the
Pacific side. During these three
days, the paddlers paddle fifty to
fifty-five mile from ocean to
ocean. The first stretch is the
shortest one of the race. It con-
sists of paddling from Cristobal to
the Gatun Locks. The second
stretch includes paddling the
treacherous and wearying Gatun
Lake. This stretch of the race
takes about three and a half to
four hours for an average cayuco.
The third stretch includes pad-
dling from the Dredging Division
in Gamboa, through Galliard Cut,
and up to the Diablo Spinning
Club, passing through the Pedro
Miguel and Miraflores Locks.
These "logs" take a lot of time
to prepare for the grueling and
exciting race. The paddlers begin
to practice many months before
the race and devote much of their
time to their cayuco. To prepare
themselves for the exhausting
race, the crews practice everyday
after school at Diablo and Gam-
The Cayuco Race is an activity
that you should take advantage of
while you are here in Panama. It
is an experience that is challeng-
ing and definitely a good way to
keep in shape.

But when the crucial catch was made, or
the winning touchdown was scored, there
was a buzz of excitement as the person
who did well was recognized. Throughout
the season, members of the football teams
showed how determined they were to suc-
ceed and help their teams win.
This year, the football program saw
quite a few changes. In the past, the play-
ers that didn't play first or second string
barely ever stepped onto the field to play.
This year, however, these players had the
chance during Thursday scrimages. The

lot of support from their cheerleaders,

But everyone knows that the managers
were more than just a support group. They

Though the Cougars pretty much domi-

very close to losing a couple of games.
Ironically, these games were those that
staged them against the Green Devils, a
team that never did break its losing streak.
The Curundu Cougars finished the season
with a perfect record of 8 wins and no
losses. The Balboa Bulldogs came in sec-
ond with 5 wins and 3 losses. Red Machine
came in third with I win, 6 losses, and I tie

Charging on down the court were
the girls Varsity basketball teams.
The players on the starting line-ups
were always planning strategies for
their next move. Their improvement
and determination were unstoppable.
What the majority of the girls lacked
in size and height, they made up for in
hard work and lots of hustle. The girls
were bound and determined to do
their best, and they most definitely

Dominating the Pacific area teams,
the Bulldogs received the second
place title of the 1991 season. The
Green Devils were tough competition,
and proved it with their third place
win. Although Red Machine did not
have as great a season as they had
hoped for, they did show some great
skill. The Curundu Cougars were the
underdogs of the season. Although
they did not place well, they did give
it their best "shot."

To The Limit

The players energetically gave
everything their best shot.

Teamwork was a very impor-
tant concept when playing sports.
It was a cooperative effort by a
group of persons acting together
for a common goal. Basketball
was a difficult sport, and the
teams had to work hard to win
their games. The players always
played with energy and gave ev-
erything their best shot; they also
had the opportunity to learn and
improve their skills.
The coaches were a driving
force in the lives of the team
members. They spent hours of
time on the court, teaching, train-
ing, and coaching the aspiring,
young athletes.

The boys Varsity Basketball
teams "shot" into the 90-91 sea-
son with extra spirit and enthusi-
asm since this sport was also cut
short last year. The Bulldogs, per-
haps displaing the most team-
work, linihed the ecaon with a 7
and I record. The PCC Green
Devils, who won the pre-season
tournament, finished close in sec-
ond with a record of 6 and 2. Cou-
gars and Red placed 3rd and 4th,
but that doesn't mean they didn't
fight hard.

Everyone involved with the varsity
tennis league this year was anxious to
get the season underway, and managed
to get the spirit up again, even after a
short 89-90. The rain, which took its
toll on a few early games, caused a
small delay, but didn't dampen the am-
bition of the four teams and their play-
Although there were a few upsets as
the season progressed, many games

were decided by just one match.
The championship of the 1990-91
season boiled down to one final con-
frontation between the Green Devils

Green barely slipped past Red with a 5

Game, Set, Match

The Season As A Whole Was Challenging And

No matter what others may
say, tennis is a game that requires
much skill, coordination and fast
thinking. Strategy is a very impor-
tant part if one wishes to be victo-
rious and master the game.
Have you ever picked up a rac-
quet and tried to play the game?
It's a lot more than just volleying
a fuzzy greenish-yellow ball from
one side of the net to the other.
The game takes much endurance
and precision.

practiced hard Monday through
Thursday for approximately two
hours a day. Swimmers were
faced with long sets of freestyle,
backstroke, and breaststroke.
They found themselves being
pushed and pushing themselves to

utter extremes. But the worst was
hearing coach say, "One more
100 yard butterfly". The results of
the first meet proved that all the
tough practices paid off after all.

were numerous activities for students
to get involved in. Activities were not
for everyone. But for those who took
advantage of them, there were a lot to
choose from.
For the musically inclined, there
was a choice between band and cho-

those who wanted to act, and produc-

year. Academic clubs were a bit more
selective and were based on one's

Students Shine In BHS Production

Well, Mr. J. did it again! Once
more, he chose and directed a
masterpiece. This year it was
Charlotte's Web, and if you didn't
get to see it, you missed Melissa
Royo (Charlotte) with eight legs,
Stacie Honeycutt (Wilbur) don-
ning pig ears and a curly-Q tail,
and Robert Lutrell (the Gander)
with a bill and webbed feet. The
hard work and determination of
the cast and crew were exhibited
in a wonderful rendition of the
children's story. The other plays
produced during the school year
were The Little Mermaid, which
was student directed by Melissa
Royo, and the fifties musical
Guys and Dolls.

Bird of a feather. Charlotte's Web's gan-
der (Robert Lutrell) and goose (Sol

Strike Up The Band

Music the universal language. By
banging on pots and pans, or plinking
away at the color coded keys on your
little plastic piano, we have developed
our musical interests as children.
While most of us are content to sit in
our cars or rooms by a blaring stereo,
the more aspiring take classes such as
band, orchestra, chorus, and just
plain music appreciation.
Music can be the emotional release

you need to dry your tears, make a
good day even better, or just while the

won't only give you that aesthetic to-
wards graduation, but will also give
you another way to express yourself in
this world where material things over-
shadow more important values.

The Close-Up group sold tick-

tion, "Wait Until Dark", to fund
its annual trip to Washington
D.C. The Dance Team had sever-
al bake sales from which the prof-

its went towards the purchase of
its jazzy costumes. And the Na-
tional Honor Society's pizza sales
raised money to fund its commu-
nity service projects.
Every club had activities to
sponsor and responsibilities that
required money. Therefore, fun-
draising was an important factor
in the success of each club. These
pressing needs for money kept or-
ganizations working hard. And

throughout the year, these organi-

The Leaders Behind The Scenes

Along with the responsibility of
educating their students, a large
number of teachers found it re-
warding to sponsor school-affili-
ated clubs or activities. Being a
club sponsor was in no way an
easy task. Most will agree that it
took a lot of time, energy, dedica-
tion, and patience.
So what made them put them-
selves through such a challenge?
Yearbook sponsor, Mrs. Hanson

Stressing his point, Mr. Figueroa empha-
sizes the importance of the Spanish Honor

says she really enjoys working
with teenagers both during and
after school hours, while Close-up
sponsor, Mrs. Alvarado tells us,
A teacher's willingness to give a
little extra time and effort gave
students an opportunity to get in-
volved, and learn a little more
than they might in the day-to-day

Haste makes waste. A. Heinichen and M
Quezada listen to Ms. Baca explain the
"ground" rules to the Ecology Club.

advantage of their opportunity to use the library

When, during the course of the
year, we lost ourselves in the excite-

activities, we forgot the main reason
we dragged ourselves out of bed at the
dawn of every day: TO LEARN.
Students had to juggle an average
of six classes a day, with the option of
advanced placement or concurrent

enrollment. Grades were an ever pre-
sent pressure, counting towards one's
GPA, which was particularly impor-
tant for college-bound seniors. "Just
Read", "SURF", standardized test-
ing, and those quarterly computer as-
signment were all part of the aca-
demic side of Balboa High School.

At one time or another, each student has
had to deal with a mathematical theory, cre-
ate a science project, or work with a comput-
er. Even a new policy at Balboa has been
installed. It requires each teacher of every
class to give an assignment on a computer.

Students realize the importance of these
courses, and many of them exceed beyond the
minimum graduation requirements. Also,
college admission is becoming tougher and
more competitive. Students are expected to
be able to work with a computer and think
As you can see, math, science, and comput-

Experiences For Tomorrow

Cooperative Work Experience

Imagine having real work experience in a pharmacy, elementary school, or in a Marine
Bureau before graduation from high school. Cooperative Work Experience-or CWE- is a
unique work-study program available to any Balboa High School student. This course is
designed to introduce students to the world of work and to provide skill for training through
on-the-job experience. High school students at Balboa are offered work sites in many areas,
such as electrical/telephone sections, recreational centers, and dental clinics, which pro-
vide opportunities to increase their confidence and self-esteem by using their skills and
aptitudes in real-life settings.
Students work daily for at least two hours. Many of them catch a glimpse of potential
careers. Personally, Bryan Crusoe likes the "good experience" working in Gorgas Mortu-
As Ms. Manchester says, "No matter what happens, everyone eventually has to go to
work ...". CWE is certainly a way to find out what it will be like when that time comes.

Now, we're not talking about
skipping class to find "most excel-

ing about is Silent Uninterrupted
Reading for Fun. Balboa's entire
population sets aside nearly half
an hour every Wednesday for the
enjoyment of reading magazines,
fairy tales, mysteries, and dude -
maybe about those waves too!
Reading isn't only reserved for
Wednesday. "Operation Just
Read" invaded Balboa High

School with its mission of a daily
reading ritual for approximately
ten minutes at the beginning of all
regular English classes. After si-
lently reading, literary partners
complete assigned activities to
hopefully provoke interest in each
other's books.

Read" build reading proficiency -
the key to educational aspirations,

Working in the main office, nurse's clinic,

teachers and students. Of course not all tests,
quizzes, and exams were as ... simple? In
fact, this year a new test practice required
that all major tests have essay questions. But,
despite the different methods of testing, scan-
tron tests still played an important part in the
school's academic aspect.

What words come to mind when you hear
the word "speech"? Humiliation? Terror?
Embarrassment? This is how many students
feel about giving speeches. As viewed by one
student, who wished to remain anonymous,
"I drool and stutter when I give a speech, I
can't stand it!" Well, most of us aren't that
scared, but it does bring on sweaty palms
and nervous twitching.
There are ways to relieve this tension.
One way is complete memorization so
there's no chance of forgetting. Another

'* '-^f^.,

way is to make "cheat sheets" note cards
starting off each paragraph of your oral pre-
sentation. Of course the best way is to pic-
ture the other speakers bald, perhaps naked!
These methods can relieve your tension tre-
mendously, especially since you are the only
speaker dressed and with hair! Giving a
speech can make you feel more confident
and allows you to express yourself with

her audience to buy hair products that prevent balding.





Cramming extreme, last minute prep-
aration. For some people, cramming puts on
the pressure; for others, it's the only way to
study. You can catch many students cram-
ming in the library before school starts.
They're also in the halls and outside study-
ing between classes, cramming in any bit of
information they're able to retain. The hec-
tic and frenzied studying can be done alone
or in giant cram sessions with other stu-
dents in the same boats. Some successful
students will tell you that this is a very bene-
ficial and common method of studying.

In-School Suspension

What? You break the rules, and you don't
have to attend class? You just lay back and
enjoy the day off' No lectures, no notes, no
homework! Sounds great, doesn't it? Well, In-
School Suspension is quite the opposite. Stu-
dents receive an ISS for different reasons, some
more extreme than others. From the moment
the "culprits" arrive at "jail", they are put to
work, and continue working throughout the
school day. Though many students resent a day
in ISS, many of them feel they accomplished a
lot of work. This satisfaction does not, however,
compensate for the strict rules and captivity
inside the "jailhouse".

ry, write compositions, and read major works
of literature.

dents for the A.P. Spanish test at the end of the

Anticipation. Tense seniors eagerly watch for the out-
come of the egg-drop contest at the Homecoming pep
rally. Who ever said pep rallies are a break from school

It has been said that a school is only
as good as those who are involved
with it. After all, the building is noth-
ing without the people to breathe life
into it. And that's just what the cul-
turally diverse staff and students of
Balboa High School have done. Free
of political unrest, they have put a
fast-paced, upbeat, positive feeling
into the school year and made it un-
like all others.
The little squeeze in student popu-
lation certainly didn't stop them from

moving on up to better things. The
sophomores had to adapt to the new
expectations and responsibilities of
high school. The juniors demonstrat-
ed their new awareness of colleges,
while the seniors scrambled to mail
their applications and eagerly awaited
a reply. But nobody had to endure iti
alone. They all had the support of
teachers, family, and friends.
Unleashed in spirit, they raised the
roof on pride and achievement.
