1986-1987: Soccer Debuts


The fall of 1986 brought a new face to the position of QHHS Principal. After five years in the top position at the school, Mr. Owens moved on and Mr. Loughridge took over. At right, during the pre-game handshake at the QH vs. AV game, Mr. Loughridge and QHHS ASB President Danny Kubasak shake hands with AVHS (and future QHHS Principal) Ray Monti and AVHS ASB President Lynda Owens.

In athletics, once again, wrestling proved to be a dominating force winning their 16th Golden League title in 17 years.

During Homecoming Week, Sherri Klein was crowned Homecoming Queen. Spirit days included Twin Day, Pajama Day, Super Hero Day, Gangster Day and Blue & Gold Day. The seniors also painted the field for the first time in honor of Homecoming, a tradition that continues today. The football team defeated Saugus 39-6 and the theme for Homecoming in 1987 was "Gone With the Wind."

The annual Powder Puff game ended with a 6-6 tie between the juniors and seniors.
