1976-1977: Yep, Another Hall of Fame Inductee & Wrestling Is A Golden 7


The 1976-1977 school year seems like business as usual at QHHS. There are a couple of mentions throughout the book about declining or low school spirit. But things were looking positive for the Rebel athletic teams.

Cross Country ended their season undefeated Golden League champs.

Girls Volleyball brought home 2nd place in Golden League and made it to the 3rd round of CIF.

Football finished league play with a stellar 6-1 record; their only loss, once again to cross-town rival AVHS.  They eventually played through 2nd round of CIF.

Girls Tennis is described as having their "best season ever."

Wrestling celebrated their 7th consecutive Golden League title.

And we learn that Baseball took the Golden League championship in 1976. 

QHHS Auto Tech Club 1977
In student activities, the Auto Tech Club was new this year, led by advisor Mr. Knapp. Also making its debut was the Debate Club and the Admirer's Club, an offshoot of the Pep Club which promoted spirit among the athletes by giving them baked goods before each game.

Quotes from teachers throughout the staff section included the question, "How are you involved in school activities?" Ms. Susan Black responded with, "I think it's part of the responsibility of a teacher to be active with the students in activities other than just teaching them. I sponsor both the ski club and the Junior class and it hasn't killed me...yet!"  Thanks to Ms. Black and all of the teachers who have helped advise and sponsor clubs and activities over the years!
