The Lions contended in every single game by playing intensly for all eighty minutes. This hard work and pride in performance is the foundation of the program Rooney has built and it is what will propel the Lions to future success.
Although failing to reach the state tournament for the first time in Rooney's career, the outlook for the Lions is excellent as the outstanding group of underclassman will return next year even more prepared to fight for the varsity boys soccer's first title. John Sabbagh.

With Vir- gina Vance, Janelle Amidon, and Marisa Berenbaum, the six seniors organized numerous team dinners, a hp synch, and a trip to Foxboro which helped make the team incredibly close and focused on working together. Coach McCarthy took on the difficult task of trying to organize three teams single handedly, and surpassed all of our expectations.

Although muiltiple injuries made victories more difficult to grasp, the hard working team continued to persevere, and ended their season triumphantly. Seniors Megan Fletcher and Libby Sucher-Jacobson also contributed to the forceful leadership of this year's team. Many of the girls who struggled with injuries or sickness in the regular sea- son bravely rejoined their teammates in the more important races towards the end of the sea- son.
Although a varsity DCL championship was not achieved as in past years, the girls placed second overall, placing four runners in the top fifteen. The girls came a long way from the beginning of the season, when often times only a few of the top seven athletes competed in races. From the sweltering hot days of early September through the freezing winds of November, the team remained focused and unified.
Their deter- mination and hard work throughout the season paid off in the Eastern Mass Championship. The team overflowed with pride as they grasped their trophy. With perseverance, the girls managed to attain many goals. The dedication of this team was clear when injured runners such as Tzioumis.

We made the state tournament for the second consecutive year. The highlight of our season was when we won five straight matches, which secured our place in the state tournament. By: Amanda P. Burrows 75 Girls Volleyball The girls volleyball team had another exciting season which took them past regular season play. After completing the regular season with a winning record of nine wins and seven losses, they were ready for the tournament.
In their first game of the tourna- ment they beat Algonquin by a marginal amount. In the second game of the tourney they fell to Cambridge in a hard fought loss. This loss did not diminish the spirit, effort and hard work the team had demonstrated all season. Led by captains Kiara Upshaw and Jessica Donovan the team rose to every challenge that pre- sented itself.
The team's effort and hard work were apparent in the way they played. Senior Irina Vasilchenko was a great outside hitter while Maddy Fleisher played as hard at the setter position. Kim Honig was a huge force as the middle hitter. Joslin Fritz and Michelle Parad were good setters in new positions. Jess Wallace and Kyla McCartney made great contributions to the team when called upon. Whether a big role or a small role everyone worked very hard and contributed to the team this season.
It was not only their hard work that made this team a success, it was the spirit they showed throughout the season. The players made many encouraging signs for each other and the monkey cheered them on at the end of the season. With this spirit behind them, the team never gave up and was always improving. Because of this the season was a success for the girls volleyball team. The seasons had many ups and downs but in the end reached a peak to show not only that the team was as good as it used to be.
The team, led by captains Lindsay Aronson and Beata Momtaz, faced many obstacles this year, including countless injuries, new additions and old departures of teammates. Another change was the addition of Nicole Brother as a co-coach with returning coach Christina Grillo. Although the coaching styles of the two were very different, when put together they worked wonders with the squad, enhancing their perfor- mances with Nikki's knowledge of stunting and Christina's knowledge of projection, precision, and performance.
One thing that is certain is that after each and every obstacle, the squad got back up and worked hard to repre- sent the pride and spirit of Newton South. After many hours of practicing, the captains and coaches were able to send the squad to each game with a performance that the team, the parents, and the many other fans were proud to watch and cheer for.

The fun began at the pep rally after the early release day and continued on as the senior and junior girls piled onto the varsity football field. It was inevitable that the juniors were going to lose, but they still put up a good fight losing Senior Michal Shapiro set the tone for the seniors by scoring the first touchdown. Becky Greenstein took off in a cloud of smoke when she received the ball and was untouchable until she reached the end zone and scored the sole touchdown for the juniors. School spirit on the day of the Powder Puff was at an all-time high and was displayed all over the school and parking lot with stickers, posters, face paint, and team jerseys.
Even the guys got into the spirit by dressing up as cheerleaders to cheer on their respective teams. The seniors' hard work and great spirit paid off in the end with a triumph for the Class of Better luck next year '01; you will get 'em in the upcoming game.

Kiara Upshaw, Lauren Bar- nett. Girls Basketball Girls basketball this year has surpassed all expectations. Despite the loss of four starters, the team qualified for the State Tournament, and continued its tradition of focus, dedica- tion, and defensive pride. Senior co-captain Kiara Upshaw lead the team through her intensity and post spin moves, as did Jessica Donovan through her high scoring and excellent outside shots and drives.
In addition, senior point guard Joanna Ducey and junior guard Lauren Bamett set the defensive tone through their aggressive defense and solid offense. The strong leader- ship encouraged the rest of the team to step-up to their own potential. Sophomore Kyla McCartney emerged as a confident all around player, especially in the post. Also respond- ing to level of play, senior Becca Rich assisted the team through her ball handling and inside passing, while junior Lauren Frank displayed her skill in outside shooting. Jos- aline's strong offense, as well as self-sacrifice, made her a force to be reckoned with.
How- ever, the team would never have been as successful without the dedication and astounding improvement of the underclassmen. Sophomore Laura Slavin's hunger to score, sopho- more Sara Cluasen's developing confidence and skill, and freshman Annie Ross's ener- getic defense have insured the success of future years. Crucial contributions were made by their excellent coaches. Head coach Mark Aaronson kept the intensity up by consistently motivating and focusing the team. Assistant Coach Mitch Lyon's patience, advice and encouragement partnered with Assistant Coach Q's support on and off the court made the gym feel like home.
However, the season has been as fun as it has been challenging. But perhaps the most lasting and special will be the team bond. Even during the hardest practices or the worst losses, this team has felt like family, which will hopefully be true in the off season and in years to come. By: Annie Ross These captains stick together every sea- son. Many individual and relay performances highlighted the season. The 4x relay team comprised of Mitchell.
Aronson also qualified for all state as an individual in the The 4x relay team, composed of senior John Lee. Everyone worked incredibly hard to obtain both their team and personal goals. The sprinters and technical event crew spent their afternoons at New- ton North, while the distance runners held their workouts outdoors, fighting against the frigid sub zero degree weather. However, no matter the running conditions, the team found a way to mold together before all the meets to form one strong cohesive unit, which led them to their success.
Although the team will again graduate many high-scoring runners, they will be replaced by key new additions. Rising stars such as Blum.

The team quickly recovered from their less-than-ideal onset and pulled through to finish the season with a record of five wins and three losses.
Each individual runner, thrower, and jumper contributed to the team's achievements. Sarah Venti, and Aly Venti, the team was always supportive, spirited, and determined.
Through hard work and training, the team produced a great number of talented atheletes of all ages. Though the sprinters, jumpers and throwers often had the privilege to retreat to the warmth of Newton North, everybody had to brave the cold, wet, and dark days of winter. Despite separation during training hours, the team came together at meets and pasta dinners to form a close bond. Whether you wish to call it a family, a cult, or a group of friends, the indoor track and field team joined to accomplish all the goals they had set out to achieve.
The sometimes endless and painful meetings and training sessions helped the team to fin- ish strong and proud. Throughout the season the girls met the challenges with which they were faced with dedication and strong will. They hope that seasons to come will continue the legacy to which they have contributed so much. By: Natalie Balkema and Eliza Berman 85 Boys Swim Despite losing some key swimmers and divers, we pulled together for a commendable season.

We started off the year with new experienced freshman. We were dazzled by Deb- orah Wiener, and surprised by Sonia Redko and her hidden talents. With our returning sophomore, juniors, and seniors, we established a strong team and had an amazing season. Sophomore Casey Amidon and Erica Tarn were ready to learn new skills and juniors Sarah Hoshino, Meg Gordon, and Amy Salk contributed with strong consistent routines with increasing ability. Seniors Lulu Fan and Meytal Kotik caught the spectator's eye with their impressive floor routines.
We were lucky this year to keep major injuries to the minimum. Returning coach Jeff Diaz and co-coach Greg Beaupre gave the team inspira- tion. Jeff's famous stories and Greg's attempts at showing us his talents kept the team laughing. Gymnastics is definitely a unique sport at South. We have relaxed and chill practices, but we compete hard-core gymnastics when it counts. We placed third at DCL last year, and with the new medal system this year, we hope to place higher.

Each team- mate gave his all at each practice and game throughout the season. Shooman, who has been on varsity since freshman year, was needed to carry much of the scoring load as he ranked as one of the all time high scor- ers in Lion history. Goalies included sopho- mores Dan Elkind and Nathan Shallar. Although the team began the season with tough losses against Westford Academy and Trinity Catholic, they worked hard and pulled it together throughout the season.

Life Skills teacher Beth was introduced as the new coach. Using new training techniques, the team was more physically and mentally prepared than ever before. The girls team went into the season hoping to return to states as a team once again. However, with the loss of Emily Bodner and Stephanie Whitehorn to graduation, and the absence of Sophie Dabuzhsky for a large part of the competing season, the other girls had to step it up.
Senior Rachel Tarko had a terrific season, allowing her to attend the state competition. Another key competitor for the girls squad was rising star Lauren Honig. After a disap- pointing season last year, no one knew what to expect from the boys team this sea- son, especially due to the loss of seniors Gabe Goldwasser, Dan Crockett, and David Simons.
The boys, however, finished third in the league. Scherr and junior Ben Steinberg consistently placed high at each meet, while Wilk, juniors Nick Violi and Nick Willett were never too far behind. Much of this year's success is due to the hard work of the students, but a great deal of appreciation goes out to Beth.

Even though the beginning of freshman year is tough, it has turned out to be a lot of fun. After all, being freshmen is just part of the high school experience. Everyone goes through it. Getting lost, finding your way, making new friends and being excited for the time when you and your class can participate in Powder Puff, senior slump, and the prom. Freshman year is dedicat- ed to getting setded and making South feel like home. Don't worry you'll catch up someday. Flash us those pearly whites.

Then you turn behind you and see the freshmen eating their lunches, chatting away. You know that for the freshmen this whole year is mere training for what is to come.
As you turn back to your own table you see your sophomore friends and come to the conclusion that your grade doesn't really have a distinctive place in the school. You are the "in between grade. You are actu- to the upperclassmen and don't get time. Sophomore year is a great and reach out to new faces. With more girls can trade in their tight boots for sneakers and relax.

Another advantage of being a sophomore is that the SAT's, college applications, and decisions don't control your life. When our PSAT's came back we laughed about them and say, "We'll do better next year, when it actually counts.
It is quite appar- ent through sports, honor roll lists, and other extra curricular activities that talent is widespread through- out our class. We are a close knit community and provide wonderful environment for each other to make it through not only sophomore year, but also the rest of our high school careers.
Where's your lucky feather? The first day of school there was something in the air, and our whole class sensed it. During our previous two years, as sophomores and freshmen, the first day back to school left us feeling shell-shocked. After long, relaxing summers spent at overnight camps and on hot beaches, back to school day, with its dizzying hallway crowds and slaughter of new textbooks, class- es, and teachers, was a day we underclassmen dreaded.
The first day left us worried about school and baffled about where vacation had gone. But to our pleasant surprise, this year back to school day felt distinctly different. Despite the school being packed with more new faces than ever before, as we stepped into the proud to be here.
We quickly realized the upperclassmen — the new junior class!

As more and more of us got licenses, we hopped into our cars with friends for coffee breaks and lunches during frees. On weekends, juniors sped around in their cars, rocked the house at basketball games, shook their bon-bons at school dances, and partied all night.
The class of '01 made many memories this year that will not soon be forgotten. Who could forget our unbelievable spirit at Powder Puff?! We didn't just survive junior year — we conquered it. Given the amount of fun and success this year, senior year should be out of sight! Ho steps in for a visit It's definitely upside-down. We'll cheer you up! Backstreet"s back, all right! When Ms.
Wise began with the yearbook in , she worked with one editor on a book of about pages. Today, she works with three editors, an exten- sive ad promotion and a computerized system to produce this Millennium yearbook of over pages. A demanding advisor, she makes sure pictures are taken and deadlines are met. Her eagle eye catches any grammatical glitch in the volumes of copy she reviews. If a stu- dent or parent is upset about a picture or ad and she has some great stories , Ms. Wise handles the problem with wisdom and diplo- macy. Twenty years of yearbook history is stored in her brain; luckily, she lives near by and has offered her services to the Regulus Yearbook Editors and advisors for years to come.
With great appreciation and thanks, we wish Ms. Wise all the best as she heads off to new adventures and travel! By: Frances Moyer and Thanks, Ms. Back in the "good old days" before the hours rule, seniors did not have to fulfill minimum class requirements, and for the second half of the year, they hardly had to attend school at all. Although we cannot slack off quite as much as our predecessors, our passion for laziness is just as strong if not stronger.
Multiple gym classes, lots of minors, and arranging a schedule so that all of the long blocks with the lunches are free are just some of the joys of senior year. Being a senior, however, is about more than simply having lots of free- blocks; it is about the knowledge that very soon we will be off to college, out of Newton, and our world will change before our eyes.
It is about savor- ing our final precious moments as children while at the same time prepar- ing ourselves to be adults. It is a time when each party becomes a celebra- tion of the past as well as the future. It is a time when every moment spent with old friends becomes special, when we are driven by a sense of both nostalgia and excitement for the things that are to come.
We have been at Newton South now for four years, a large chunk of our lives. During our stay at South we grew together as a class. We are older and more mature than when we entered as little lost freshman, desperately trying to navigate the hallways of the school. We have been through a lot together, shared many moments, and many emotions.
Soon we will be gone, but now, in our final days, as a class, we can only enjoy the time we have left. Adam Wilson Where's seaweed? Good luck everybody and thanks for everything.
