Making it big

- Kevin Landers was also named to the IHSA All-State Academic team for maintaining a grade point average above 3.5 percent (on a 4.0 scale) while playing a sport. Landers, who played football and basketball, won a scholarship to attend Notre Dame.

- Jay Hanson, who is going to the U.S. Naval Academy, and William Morkes, who is going to the U.S. Military Academy, received full-ride scholarships.

Good citizens

- Many students volunteered for Project Hope which contributed to various charities throughout the year. The seniors also initiated Thanksgiving and Easter food drives, walked in the March of Dimes and Crop Walk for the hungry, as well as cleaning up Route 120 for the Illinois Department of Transportation's Adopt-a-Highway program.

Sports

- The varsity baseball and football teams won the Suburban Catholic Conference.

Human interest

- The seniors took perverse pride in coming in last each year in the contest for best homecoming parade float. From their freshman year on the students came in fourth when competing against their classmates.
