CROSS-COUNTRY Coach Ralph Muoio stares into the sunset dreaming of his runners crossing the finish line. The team had promise entering this year. Three outstanding seniors were to return from last year. However, record-breaking Andy Adams was struck down by mononucleosis and, thus, was forced to turn to the scholarly life. Jeff Stern and Eric Eckert became the "Runners without a Team.” When the two lost their competitive season, they lost their competitive edge.

Even the spectators have noticed the great improvement of this year’s relatively young cheerleading squad. "It was great to have the cheerleaders at the games to cheer for us, especially when we didn’t have much of a crowd,” noted one varsity basketball player. The students of W-H, a notoriously demanding audience, no longer think of the cheerleaders as a "joke” organization, but as the real bearers of the spirit of Wardlaw-Hartridge.
