1983-1984: A 20th Triumph-QH Football Beats AV For The First Time


It's Quartz Hill's 20th year! And there was really no better way to celebrate than to finally experience the sweet taste of success in a win against cross-town rival Antelope Valley High School in Varsity Football. The Cavalier Yearbook states, "WELL ALBEEDAMNED! WE DID IT! Quartz Hill's victory over Antelope Valley, kept the students' spirits high the following weeks." The book continues, "The 1983 Varsity Football Team took a step in the right direction, going all the way to the C.I.F. Quarter Finals. The team's Golden League record was 4 wins and 1 loss, losing only to C.I.F. champion Canyon. The overall record was 9 wins and 3 losses." 

In other sports news, Girls Volleyball worked their way to Golden League co-champs. Boys Cross Country went undefeated and earned the Golden League title. Girls Tennis is listed as CIF champs for the second consecutive year. After a year of being pinned down, Wrestling returned to the top bringing home their 13th Golden League title. 

After announcing his retirement from coaching basketball last year, Coach Moore suprised the team and returned to coach!

The annual Homecoming Week consisted of Hat Day, Lunch Box Day, Backwards Day, 60's Day, and Friday wrapped-up with Slave Day or Blue & Gold Day. The football team defeated the Palmdale Falcons 28-0 and during halftime, the Homecoming Court came out in pedicarts. 

Cheramy Rainwater was named 1983 Queen.

The traditional activities continued to take place throughout this 20th year, including Powder Puff (Seniors win 6-0), Lip Sync (featuring Dolly Parton, Duran Duran, Motley Crue, The Stray Cats, Def Leppard, The Police, and Billy Idol with "Rebel Yell!"), Sadie Hawkins and International Weekend. 

Winter Ball King was Ken McVicker and Queen was Jennifer James. In 1984, Jennifer was also the A.S.B. Secretary, daughter to English teacher Mrs. James, and future QHHS Math teacher. Today, Ms. Jennifer James teaches young mathematical minds in the 400's. 

As we mark another decade of QHHS, here is a compilation of the teaching staff working at grand old Quartz Hill High during year 20:

To commemorate 20 years of QHHS, the yearbook staff included highlights from the first 20 years.
