1970-1971: The IMC opens!

Cavalier 71 Cover

Now in its seventh year of existence, Quartz Hill High School continues to grow. The student population from the previous year increased from 1,600 to 1,850 (still a far cry from today's 3,200 students). 

The big news on campus was the opening of the IMC, or Instructional Material Center, which housed the new library, nurse's office, activities office, photography lab, and the audio visual department. Today, the IMC is more commonly referred to as the Admin Building, which houses the guidance, attendance, records, accounting, nurse's and administration offices, library and switchboard. 

IMC opens during 2nd semester.

The football team ended their season with a 5-3-1 record. New milestones were achieved, including the first fieldgoal ever kicked by a Rebel place kicker (Jim Seabrook), most shutouts by a Rebel football team (Fillmore, Apple Valley and Victor Valley), and it was the first year that the Rebels beat the Palmdale Falcons at the varsity level. 

The Cross Country team was excited to beat cross-town rival Antelope Valley for the first time. They set the fastest time in the league for the two mile (Pat Curran 9:52) and the team was named Golden League Champions.

An assortment of new clubs appear in this year's yearbook, including Geography, Foreign Studies, Free Style Wrestling, Racket, Future Teachers, Spirit Squad, Science & Rocket and Electronics.
