Winter Ball Royalty, and Homecoming Queen in fireworks
During Quartz Hill High School's 19th year, Homecoming Week included Preppy Day, Nerd Day, 50's and 60's Day, Concert T-shirt Day & Spirit and Slave Day. The 1982 Homecoming Queen was Christie Endres who had her name displayed in fireworks at the Homecoming football game. 

Winter Ball was held at the Holiday Inn in Palmdale where Steve Manigold and Lola Boyd were crowned King and Queen. 

The 1983 Prom was held at the Queen Mary with 514 in attendance. Vicki Felix and Scott Johnson were crowned Queen and King. This is the first year a King is included in the Prom royalty. The event included live music from "Raven."

1982-1983 QHHS Gamemaster Club
A new club on campus this year was the Gamemasters Club. They conducted numerous chess tournaments and thought of new strategies for games such as Dungeons and Dragons. 

For a new twist, the Lip Sync finals were held at night in the girl's gym. Finalists included The Flirts, MIssing Persons, Jimmy and the Mustangs, Pat Benatar, Elvis, Saga, Cheap Trick and the Bus Boys. The winning group was Saga.

The Sadie Hawkins dance is still an annual event. This year also included the Beach Party Dance


The Varsity Football team, coached by John Albee, compiled an overall 3-7 record and a League record of 3-2. They won their Homecoming game against Burroughs, plus Saugus and Palmdale, but once again lost to "arch-rival Antelope Valley" and Canyon. Ending their season in 2nd place, they encountered Monrovia High School in C.I.F. playoffs, but lost in the first round.

Girls Varsity Volleyball, under the guidance of coach Twyla Thomas, ended with a 7-3 league record, a 2nd place Golden League finish and, like football, bowed out in first round of C.I.F. playoffs.

Girls Varsity Tennis, coached by Barbara Willibrand, earned an undefeated Golden League season, a first in ten years, and finished in first place, a feat that hadn't been accomplished since 1978. 

Coach Don Moore, 1983
Varsity Boys Basketball ended their season with a 4-6 League record and 11-12 overall score. Coach Don Moore announced his retirement from coaching at the end of the season, capping off "about 25 years of coaching."  

Varsity Girls Basketball, coached by Barbara Bort, "had a very successful basketball season. Although the league was very competitive and rough, the girls came out on top."

Varsity Baseball ended their year in 2nd place as did Varsity Softball
