2 Opening

V Steeped in tradition,
SP.K. Yonge took a bold step toward change
during the 93-94 school year and made an attempt to
Break away from the norm. For the first time in history, P.K. Yonge
moved to a seven period day which opened the door
for new classes, new teachers, and a chance to get
required credits while exploring more electives.
The addition of new classes brought mixed emo-
tions from teachers and students. For teachers, the
addition of a seventh period meant the addition of one
more planning period, an average of eighteen more
minutes of planning a day. The extra period was an
advantage for most students, especially seniors. Without
a seven period day many seniors would be short one credit of
graduation requirements and not be able to graduate. On the
other hand, many underclassmen regretted the extra period be-
cause it added to the number of subjects they had to keep up with. The
addition of a seventh class caused the school day to become 35 minutes
longer. Alarm clocks had to wake us up earlier to arrive at school on time.
Getting out of school later than in years past left many students with less time for after
school activities, such as sport events andjobs. New faces of teachers and students appeared
in the hallways and classrooms. Many students opted for a change of direction and decided
to go to a public high school. This opened the door for new students to experience P.K. for
the very first time. The addition of many new teachers gave the students a break from being
instructed by the same teachers year after
year. The new variety of teachers had a posi- B R E A K IN G
tive influence in the students' educational atti-
tudes. We were all ready to learn, have fun, and make certain
this year would never be forgotten. Each of us, in our own A W A Y
way, got to break away from the daily routine schedule and
have a much more entertaining, challenging j
school year. -Ivy Boerman jt


Opening 3,


Everybody had an opinion on something. i
Most people spoke their mind while oth-
ers expressed their opinion through per-
sonality. One person in favor of express-
ing herself verbally was junior Laura 0l
Gamm who went by the philosophy
"scream it out." Another person that fre-
quently expressed herself was Ms. Pat
Barnes who would sometimes make her
point by being non-verbal with uncourteous
students that came into her office. The king
of expression had to be math teacher, Peter
McCall, who stated his point this year in the
only way that he knew how, sarcastically.
Some people who expressed themselves in a
different way were thought of as weird. When
asked how he made his point, junior Danny
McDowell said, "I like to ignore anything
mainstream, and I try to be independent."
Another student who made a shocking point
was sophomore Alan Davis who stated, "I like
to do things to shock people." Everybody had
some point to make and most students were
pretty good at making it. -Rob Lawson

During one week of the
fall semester, strange

Fashions reflected

The hallways and class-
rooms were enlivened with a
huge variety of personalities and
clothing styles. Everyone ex-
pressed themselves actively and
strived for individuality. People
used clothes, hair styles, and even
shoes to express their originality.
Some of the more trendy styles
seen around campus this year in-
cluded ajump back to the 60's and
70's with bell bottoms, platform
shoes, crochet tops, chokers, and
hair parted in the middle, better
known as the "butt cut."
Senior class president
Bayo Cary stated, "style is what-
ever I want it to be." Many stu-
dents showed this clearly through
their distinctive dressing styles.
Junior Greg Haddock suggested
style was, "When people aren't
afraid to be themselves...when
their words, thoughts, and actions
aren't dictated by others, but how
they feel inside."
Junior Summer
Goodman remarked, "style is free
and reflects your inner self."
Style was perceived in many dif-
ferent ways, but senior Arne
Knudsen said it best with, "Style
is a unique way of expressing
your inner most feelings and
desires....or it's a superficial com-
petition for attention freaks like
myself." -Julie Brandenburg

It is fifth period
and your stomach is
growling. All you can
think of is lunch. Se-
niors had the privilege
of off-campus lunch.
This was great but de-
ciding where to eat was
not always easy. Eat-
ing off-campus was ex-
pensive, so where you
ate and wanted to eat
didn't always coincide.
Many seniors agreed
that getting to sixth pe-
riod on time was hard.
"There is plenty of time
to go and eat, it's just
that big problem of get-
ting back on time that

gets me," said Brian
Cueny. The response
to off-campus lunch
was positive. "I love it!

seniors ate off-campus

side of the spectrum, tal-
ent ranged from Jake
Springfield's bass guitar
to the inspiring voices of
gospel singers Javonte
Lewis, Carla Williams,
Keesha Johnson, and
Erica Thomas. As an art-
ist, Vanessa Benn's name

students. The many tal-

students contributed to
the exhilarating diversity

Beating the System

Listening to the latest tunes Freshman Deshika
Robinson beat the system by using a walkman
between class. No matter what, students had to
keep up with the beat.

Some students beat the
system by chewing bubble
gum. Senior Brittany Bula
was a perfect example.


Beating the System

"How did you get away
with that?" Was the ques-
tion commonly asked. It
could involve anything
from getting out of
unexcused absences to hav-
ing parties while parents
were out of town or being
late for curfew. Students
always found creative ways
to beat the system. "Skip-
ping is easy," commented an
anonymous sophomore.
"I've skipped the whole day
and got an excused ab-
sence," said Kim Patterson.
A popular way of beating
the system was making up
wild excuses to get out of
homework. Students knew

what teachers they could
pull this off with. Out of
school, there were many
other ways students beat the
system. "I went to a club I
wasn't old enough to get
into, there was a fight so I
snuck in the exit, got in and
didn't even have to pay,"
said senior Holly Webster.
"The biggest thing I've ever
pulled off, was when my
boyfriend was too sick to
drive home so he spent the
night. My parents never
found out," bragged a senior
who wishes to remain name-
less. For those creative ones
who beat the system, good
job. -Tiffany Dillow


For the past few years,
it has been a tradition for the
seniors to take a field trip to
Lake Wauberg for a full day
seminar. This year the semi-
nar took a day off to learn
about safe sex and STD's.
Even AIDS patients came to
talk. "I thought it built
camaraderie among the senior
class," commented Jake
Springfield. "The lady that did
the contraceptive speech
cracked me up, but it was edu-
cational," remarked Lisa
There were four dif-
ferent segments of the semi-
nar, each about a half hour, and
the seniors were split into
groups. "Every part of the
seminar tried to talk to us
about practicing safe sex but
none of them really got to us

until we met the AIDS pa-
tients," stated Micki Bronzine.
After the seminars
were over, the seniors got to
enjoy spending the rest of the
day with their peers. It was
interesting to see what hap-
pened; people participated in
activities ranging from volley-
ball tournaments to grilling
The day overall was a
great success and brought the
seniors all a little closer. "The
seniors proved that we can all
come together without stealing
anything.. Hey, we didn't steal
the lake," spoke out Leigh
Scott. After asking the
seniors,"Would you want to go
again?" The majority of them
responded with a definite yes.

Avoiding the Rush

You watched the
clock for twenty minutes
praying that you'd stay
awake through Mr.
Anderson's "lectures of
the day", when suddenly
you remembered- only
thirty five minutes today!
And then the bell
sounded, you were out.
But it was time to go to
your locker, socialize,
and get to your class all in
five minutes. Could this
be reasonable? Many stu-
dents at P.K complained
not. When asked, "Do
you find it hard to get to
class on time?" Senior
Mike Wienshelbaum an-
swered, "Extremely."
The halls were crowded
and the construction going
on in the hall towards

your next class did not
thrill you. To top it off
"Bob" who talks forever
was waiting around the
corner, then the hall
cleared and you ran, you
got in the class, but you
were late!
Many teachers
took different aspects
about tardies; some even
required detention. Se-
nior Julie Brandenburg
agreed with that state-
ment, "Yeah- Mr. Silvers
usually gave me detention
for coming in late from
lunch." But sometimes
these five minutes were an
advantage. You got a
break from class and it
was just another reminder
that the day was moving
on. -Holly Webster

This year brought changes not
only in the academic area but in the
sports programs as well.
Many of the changes were due to
the fact that there were new coaches.
The new coaches helped the teams
rise to new levels.
The teams workouts were longer
and harder, and improvements were
showing, as the teams got closer and
closer to winning district titles. More
district games were won this year, than
in years past, proving that a little change
can go a long way. For instance, the girls
volleyball team went from winning three
gamesto winning fourteen games, includ-
ing two matches at the district tournament.
The football team showed great improve-
ment as they were ranked in the top ten of

The P. K. Yonge
soccer team began this
year's season with
many advantages in-
cluding new coaches,
returning talent, and
new players. Aston
Bright was a UF stu-
dent playing on a UF
club team when he
heard about the P.K.
soccer team. He came
to their practice be-
cause he wanted to
help, unaware that the
team was in need of a
full time coach. Aston
Bright was soon of-
fered the job, because
of his apparent interest,
immense talent, and
experience including
three years of coaching

and playing for over
fifteen years on various
teams. The team as a
whole was very young
and packed with poten-
tial. The main focus
was rebuilding a strong
foundation for the fu-
ture. Chet Moody
commented, "I think
that we have a great fu-
ture, we are a young
team, and it's a young
program. I think with
the coaches we have
now we can go far in
the future." The waves
immediately made a
great comeback. By
their second game they
had already outscored
the entire previous sea-
son, a drastic improve-

ment. The strong start
made Coach Bright be-
lieve that "This team
will be respected years
down the road," and re-
membered as the team
that laid the foundation
for a tradition of suc-
cess on the soccer field
at P.K. Coach Bright
noted that the team's
strong point was their
heart and determina-
tion. Brian Cueny
agrees, "We have a lot
of young players that
do not match up to the
size of our competi-
tion, but they play with
heart and have the de-
sire to win."

The girls var-

many new changes,
from a new coach to a
new district. When
junior Lorraine
Johnson was asked
where she thought that
the team would be at
the end of the year, she
responded "I think that
we can win our district
because we have a new
district and the teams
are more to our level."
With eleven members
of the team returning
players, they were a

more experienced
team than in years past.
Although the team had
a rough start, their hard
work and effort began
to pay off. When jun-
ior Holly Florence was
asked how she thought
the team was so far she
commented, "We are
average right now, but
by the end of the year
we will be better."
When Coach Basil was
asked the same ques-
tion he remarked, "We

If they continue with
the same effort and de-

have as good of a team

better." This year the
young girls' soccer
team consisted of six
juniors, five sopho-
mores, three freshmen,
three eighth graders,

for a couple of more

"Hustlers." This was

the word that J.V. girls

basketball coach

Robin Bourg used to

describe her team.

Coach Bourg gradu-

ated from P. K. Yonge

in 1984. She played

college basketball at

Santa Fe Community

College and then for

the University of

Florida. This was her

first year coaching.

She choose to coach J.

V. to give the girls ba-

sic skills and because

she loves the age

group. Coach Bourg

also tried to teach the

girls about respect for

each other and togeth-

erness. These two

things are what the J.

V. girls basketball

team was all about.

When asked about the

relationship between

players, seventh grader

Janivea Lewis said, "

We all get along well.

We work together and

encourage each other

to do our best."

great deal to the team.
This season, more
emphasis was put on
team effort rather than
winning. When asked

which of these aspects
she felt to be more im-

said, "Varsity to me,
means working to-

J.V. baseball was
coached once again by
Cecil Barnes. He had a
squad of ninth and tenth
graders that were said to
be one of the physically
largest teams that has
ever existed. They, like
the varsity team, had a
few newcomers added to
the schedule.
The freshman
team was coached by
P.K. graduate Matt
Rowe. This was Coach
Rowe's first year as a
head coach. He had
charge of the seventh
through ninth graders that

played. He had a season
that consisted of eight
games. When asked at
the beginning of the sea-
son Coach Rowe said, "I
expect to win a few
games this season with
this team."
Both teams
worked hard to accom-
plish the goals that they
set for themselves at the
beginning of the year.
The desire to build a win-
ning team was evidenced
by the players and
coaches that made and set
them. Rob Lawson, Darren

The guys' ten-
nis team was as good
or better than the teams
in the past. In the past
the varsity boys team
has won back to back
district titles and has
had back to back state
appearances. Each
year they have shown
improvement. When
Mrs. Creveling was
asked if she thought
that the team was better
this year she responded
"Sure, they have been
playing a lot of tourna-
ments this year and it

has improved their
skill on the court."
Even though they were
in a new district with
new teams they still
had confidence in
themselves. This was
shown when sopho-
more Carly Asse an-
swered "definitely."
when asked if he
thought that they
could make it three in a
row even though they
had a new district.
The team
consited of one senior,
one junior, one sopho-

more. and one fresh-
man that had the expe-
rience of winning the
back to back district
titles in 1992 and 1993.
The team had all of its
members back except
for one. They also had
some of the most tal-
ented players in the
city. The team was
good enough that on
any given day one of
them could play the
number one position.
With this talent they
will be hard to beat for
a long while. S. M. B.

S team has had changes
from a ne\w coach to a

had high hopes this

Bula said "Hopefully
we can do as good or
better than last year."

eight and finished
fourth overall in the

tices a little longer and
instructed the girls

tention. She made

paid offgiving the girls
a better understanding
of the game and better
training techniques. "I
think we'll do pretty

players are returning,"
said junior Lauren
Bishop with high
hopes. With one se-
nior, one junior, one
sophomore, one fresh-
man, and one eigth

the track and field team

speed and endurance.
They practiced every
day after school to
compete in sprints,
sprints with hurdles,
mile runs, long jumps,
triple jumps, shot put,
and discus throw. Be-
cause Coach Marilyn
Orr greatly empha-
sized stretching, the
team stretched for at
least twenty minutes
before practice. Then,

they conditioned by
running for thirty min-
utes before getting into
the sprints.
They were in many
competitions includ-
ing the Florida Relays,
the Invitationals, and
District meets. The
team gained experi-
ence from competing
against runners from
5-A schools, and col-
lege students in the
open division races.
Coach Orr believed
in setting inspiring
goals. She explained,

"If you aim high, you
will reach your goal or
at least come close to
it." Coach Orr's goal
for the season was to
win districts and go to
a state meet. Most im-
portantly, she wanted
to enjoy the fun things
that come along with

ing being outdoors and

From January
through March, one

grunts of serious strain
from behind the walls
of the gymnasium. It
was not difficult to tell
that weightlifting sea-
son had arrived.
Many of the
key members of the

This year's members
found themselves
starting over. Senior
Ann Hyde, the only
female member of the
team, said "Even

though we lost many of
our best lifters, we have
a lot of skilled, experi-
enced people left."
Coach Roy Sil-
vers led the team to
many victorious meets.
They practiced every
day after school, and
had to follow a rigor-
ous schedule. When
practice started, the
team had to do sit-ups
and warm up exercises.
Coach Silvers then
gave them a weight
schedule. Each lifter
trained according to his
or her own ability,
body weight, and ac-

cording to the amount
of experience he or she
"It was hard,"
said Ann Hyde, "but it
really paid off." The
team was led by junior
captain Druva Adams.
The team also got help
from former P. K.
weightlifter Josh
Anderson. But most
important to the team's
success was head
coach Roy Silvers,
who motivated the
lifters and taught them
that hard work coupled
with a lot of heart
would lead to success.

When leaving
high school, many
times we leave be-
hind years of memo-
ries. Let us now look
back into the haze
and catch a glimpse
of days gone by.
Leigh Scott's
favorite memory
was, "The time
when we pulled Jake
britches down in

front of everybody."
Unfortunately, Jake
had forgotten to put
on his underwear
that day.
What was Sa-
rah Coe's most
memorable experi-
ence? When Sarah
Griffin, Sarah Coe,
Nicole Bastien, and
Monica Mims snuck
out while at Camp
Kulagua to go see

Terry Jackson,
Stephen Mickle,
Micah Byars, and
D.J. Mitchum. "We
ended up face down
in the dirt under
Mrs. Ulmer's cabin
for half an hour.
When we finally got
the courage to run,
Nicole put her hand
on a huge frog, and
screamed. We never
reached the cabin."
The best
memory Chet
Moody could con-
jure up was, "Being
beat up by Terry
Jackson in Kinder-

Barbara Reed

garten." Sarah
Griffin's memory
also extends back
into early elemen-
tary school. She
reminisced, "In
third grade, we had a
party and we put two
slip 'n slides to-
gether. Both Tara
Young and Monica
Mims went for a
running start at the
same time and
ended up running
into each other."
Some memo-
ries are joyous, sad,
embarrassing, and
funny, but all of
them tie into our
high school experi-
ence. Each person,
each situation has a
special place in our

After 13 Years...

After thirteen years to-
gether, the time had finally come to
say goodbye. The lifers started at-
tending P.K. in the fall of 1980.
They went through the cooties,
learning how to read and write, first
kisses, freshman ignorance and
ended up finally being seniors.
They saw a lot of changes in the
school and in each other. The big-
gest change that lifer Arne Knudsen
saw over the years was, "...the
people. We went from being naive
children to mature adults."

"We can't believe it's over," agree
Chris Salvano and Chet Moody.

Most of the lifers liked stay-
ing in the same school with the same
familiar faces, although many had

thought of leaving a few times. Jen
nifer Crane admitted that, "Yes,
thought of leaving once in the ninti
Graduation proved to be
difficult time for most lifers. Saral
Coe said sadly that, "No, I won't b(
okay. I will definitely cry." Th(
lifers will move on after graduation
but their bonds with each other anc
the school will forever tie them to.
-Amy Pearce & Laura Gamn

Jake Springfield and Arne Knudsen like to
hang out just as much today as they did in
the first grade. Un fortunately, it usually led
to trouble.

Everyone said that
our junior year would
be the hardest of our
whole high school ca-
reer. At the time we
didn't take them seri-
ously. Now we know
better. Shannon Helle
admitted that this year
was in fact very taxing,
"There is a lot more
work to do this year."
Why was this year


different? Many
teachers said that it was
harder because it was
time for the students to
start getting serious
about college, taking
the always exciting
SAT and ACT's, and
scrambling to make
sure that they had the
required credits for
next year's graduation.
Life after high school

was becoming a real

No matter what, ever
junior realized that thi
year was definitely
trying one. Some I

most juniors rose up t
the higher expectatic n

that came with th:4

Driving. Ev-
eryone couldn't wait
or the day when they
ere old enough to
rive, but was it really
worth it? There were
many different prob-
lems involved in driv-
ing and cars. Insur-
ance was a big prob-
lem for many Juniors.
Some had to getjobs in
order to pay for their

insurance whereas oth-
ers just turned to their
parents. When asked
how she paid for her
car insurance, Lauren
Bishop replied, "I just
ask my daddy for it."
Money for gas was also
a problem that many a
junior faced. Unfortu-
nately, it was a neces-
sity for every car." I
love the freedom of

driving, but it costs too
much!" a disgusted
Erica Leone stated.

was really worth it Rob

New and improved
were the two words
that described the atti-
tude of the Junior
Class Officers. They
had a lot of big
responsibilities, includ-
ing sponsoring Prom.
Lorraine Johnson
stated "We are a re-
sponsible group of
people who want to get
a lot done."
And getting a lot
done was just what

they did, starting with
Fundraisers were a
large part of the suc-
cess the officers had
this year. Among the
things that they did
were running a Christ-
mas store, selling
doughnuts on cold
mornings, and holding
a car wash.
Most of the officers
had prior experiences

with Student Council
in Middle School and
had known each other
for a long time. "We've
got it together. We are
comfortable enough
with each other to re-
ally get things done,"
commented Latrice
Strappy. Whatever the
reason, the Junior Of-
ficers deserved recog-
nition for all of their
hard work and school
spirit. -Laura Gamm

Oddly enough, the meaning of
the word "sophomore" is wise fool.
All agreed that the year was filled with
a plethora of foolish mistakes. "In

ted, "I fell out of my chair in English,

Being a sophomore was just an-
other step-up in high school to some.
"I'm one year closer to getting out of
this crack house!" exploded Brian
Moody. Even though we weren't fresh-
men anymore, the older students found
something else to pick on, and next
year we'll probably make just as many
foolish errors, but being a sophomore
was much more than just a label. "It
was itchy," concluded Ezra Plemons.

4, the sophomore class spent their

The topics discussed included
AIDS, teenage sexuality, drugs in high
school, and drinking and driving. "I

Imagine school without field trips,
parties, or other special activities: a
bleak and boring picture. Without the
sophomore student council, this night-
mare of a school year would have be-
come a reality. Behind it all, the back-
bone of the sophomore class, were our
student class officers.
"Being president is hard," de-
clared Alana Dennard, "it's a very re-
sponsible job." She handled it well,
though, always shooting for her main
goal, "someday we're going to camp!"

Alana, a^ngg with her
in everything, "explained
Amy Brock, vice-president.
She got along well with all
the members, and kept them
in strong, working order.

"Someday, we're go-
ing to camp!"
-Alana Dennard


Mary Corr had difficulty keeping
calm in her office. "Everybody is al-
ways expecting the student council to
perform miracles!"
Wil Johnson's prospects for fund-
raisers were high this year. He tried to
get everyone involved by perpetually
asking the question: "Ideas anyone?"
Together, the four officers, along
with their advisor, Betsy Creveling,
made our sophomore year exciting and

school', and 'Man, these classes are
boring,' explained Jake Rucker.
When asked to describe
the year in one word,
Saudia Bradley immediately an-
swered, "Fresh!" The move from
middle school to high school was a
large one for many. There were new
classes, new teachers,
and for returning stu-
dents, a few more members joining

over again," described
