Return Bowl 

The Return Bowl took place on October 12. It repre- 
sented the return of a football team to McKendree and 
Westminster. McKendree had been without a team for 45 
years. Westminster had been without a team for 65 years. 

During the post game activities, an engraved silver 
plated bowl (the "Victory Bowl") was presented to head 
coach Carl Poelker and the team captains. The "Victory 
Bowl" will be passed on between McKendree and West- 
minster each year. 

The game ball was carried onto the field by a skydiver. 
The game started with a McKendree kickoff that lasted 
almost five minutes. Freshman Donald Brooks "capped" 
a 44 yard drive with a four yard touchdown to give the 
Bearcats the lead. 

At halftime the Bearcats and the Westminster Blue Jays 
were tied 6-6. One of the halftime activities consisted of 
a ceremony to salute nine McKendree alumni who played 
football before 1951. 

During the third quarter, Westminster controlled the 
ball. Excitement filled the air toward the end of the third 
quarter. With 34 seconds remaining, McKendree quarter- 
back Jason Karnes assisted Brett Gross on a 25 yard pass 
play. The Bearcats made a two point conversion, putting 
them in the lead with a score of 14-6. 

During the fourth quarter, Karnes and Gross continued 
to make successful plays. After the next touchdown, 
Freshman Ryan Wells' kick put McKendree at a 21-6 
lead. 

The Bearcats totaled 21 first downs. They carried the 
ball 56 times for 214 yards, and the defense dropped the 
Blue Jays behind the line of scrimmage six times for 37 
yards. Other notable players who led the team to their 
first victory of the year were: Rory O'Connell, Donald 
Brooks, and Mike Garavalia. 

The final score was 27-15

Homecoming Activities 

The day of homecoming got off to a good start with a parade 
at 10:00 a.m. The parade began at the Bearcat Gym parking 
lot and went through downtown Lebanon. 

The women's and men's soccer teams both played the Uni- 
versity of Missouri at Rolla. The women played at 10:00 a.m. 
and suffered a 0-3 loss. The men played at noon and won 3-1. 

At 2:00 p.m. the football game against Blackburn College 
took place at Leemon Field. The Bearcats earned their second 
victory of the year. The score was 19-0.

Homecoming Dance 



The Homecoming Dance was held on October 19. Excitement filled the air as 
students, friends, and faculty gathered together at Embassy Suites on the landing 
in St. Louis. This year's theme was: "On the Wings of Time." 

Dinner was served at 7:00 p.m. People ate either London broil or chicken sherry 
and corn, potato, Caesar salad, and cheesecake for dessert. As dinner was being 
served, everyone talked, laughed, and waited for the arrival of the court. 

The coronation began at 8:30 p.m. The court was introduced starting from fresh- 
man attendants to the senior attendants. Then, what everyone was waiting for was 
finally here. The envelope was opened and it read: "This year's Homecoming 
King and Queen are Marcus Prewitt and Natalie Van Rossum!" Last year's Home- 
coming King and Queen Toby Harms and Tina Scaturro-Caruso crowned the new 
king and queen. 

At 9:00 p.m. the music and dancing started. As the night drew to a close, eve- 
ryone remembered the fabulous attire, the elegant food, and the laughs and smiles 
that were seen throughout the night. Everyone was swept away "On the Wings of 
Time."

NSO Activities 



NSO stands for New Student Orientation. NSO activi- 
ties took place from Saturday, August 24th to Tuesday, 
August 27th for incoming freshmen. The coordinators of 
this year's NSO program were Tricia Spotanski and Jeff 
Dunbar. The activities ranged from a play written by 
McKendree student Shannon Stueber, to a bus trip to Six 
Flags. 

After loading up the car and moving into the rooms, 
the students and their parents ate lunch at MPCC. Then 
the students went to an icebreaker session in Bearcat 
Gym, while their parents were at an informational meet- 
ing. After eating a barbecue dinner on upper campus, the 
students and parents said their goodbyes. That night there 
was a dance held at the Quad where the students were 
"decked out" in neon paraphernalia. 

Sunday, August 25th, the charter buses left for a day 
of fun at Six Flags Amusement Park. On the way to Six 
Flags the buses gave a brief tour of downtown St. Louis. 

The following day, some students participated in "Into 
the Streets", a community service activity. The students 
were broken up into groups and sent off to different lo- 
cations. The volunteers went to Lebanon Terrace, Emer- 
ald Garden Nursing Home, and St. Joseph Catholic 
church. Some cleaned up the campus. Later on that night 
the Lair hosted The Harley Newman Show. 

Tuesday, August 27th, the students took a tour of the 
campus in the afternoon. Later in the day, ' Windfire," a 
special concert by the Fine Arts and Entertainment Series, 
took place. A Mexican dinner on the President's lawn 
wrapped up the successful four day NSO program.

NEW ADDITIONS 





There has been many new additions to McKendree in the 
last year, which have given the students a better campus and 
given the campus more publicity. The additions range from 
sports to residential housing. 

The main department in which additions were made was in 
the athletic department. New sports brought in many new 
students, including the largest freshman class at McKendree. 
Football TV coverage gave the campus more publicity. 

With more sports at the college, there was a need for other 
additions. Leemon Field was built for the football and track 
teams. The new field includes the football field, exterior track, 
concession stand, press box. and grandstand. 

A fitness center was also added this year. The facility 
contains multi-pupose locker rooms, showers, storage areas 
for athletes and coaching staff, an accessible weight room and 
an all-purpose faculty room. 

As more students were added to the McKendree population, 
more student housing was needed. Modulars were set up 
between the suites and the fitness center to house up to 42 
students. McKendree also leased out the apartments 
overlooking the Locust Hills Golf Course about a half a mile 
west of the main campus. Known as "McKendree West." 
they house 140 upperclassmen in approximately 36 
apartments. A fourth building is being added and will be 
ready by fall. 

In addition, many buildings have been remodeled including 
the physical plant and maintenance building. A 2.200 square 
foot addition to the Mel vin Price Convocation Center provided 
new offices for coaches. 

These new additions were seen by the community as a good 
thing, even though they caused some controversy between 
students and departments. Some students felt that more 
classrooms or renovations to the old classrooms needed to 
be the main focus instead of the sporting facilities. Some 
departments felt that the athletic department got too much 
attention and that the school should have treated all 
departments equally. 

A big argument between the students erupted toward the 
middle of the year. Some students involved in the performing 
arts department argued that the school should have fixed 
Eisenmayer Auditorium and not spent as much money on the 
athletic department. The athletic department students argued 
that since their department grew in size and provided more 
publicity for the campus, it was only right that they get the 
properfacilities. 

Many opinions were heard that helped the student body 
realize how bad the old theater was. One football player 
commented about Eisenmayerafterseeing the spring musical: 
"I never realized how bad the theater was. Now I understand 
why the performing arts department wants the theater fixed." 
Many students who argued against the performing arts 
department's wishes had not even seen the theater. Viewing 
it. however, might have eliminated some of the controversy.

BEARCATS, PUT THE 
BALL IN P-L-A-Y... 



These were the words heard as 
the McKendree basketball 
games began. The men's 
basketball team started out 
strong and kept the fans on an 
emotional roller coaster. When 
the team ended the season with 
a record of 28 wins and 9 losses, 
it was the overtimes, the bad 
calls, and the slam dunks that 
kept the fans at high pitch. 



Team members who provided 
the roller coaster of emotions 
included senior center Marcus 
Prewitt, who was top rebounder 
with 205 rebounds. Jason 
Schneider, a senior guard, was 
top defensive player with 52 
steals. Chad Mills, also a senior 
guard, was top free throw 
shooter at 83%, while Marty 
Adams was named most 
valuable player.

TTTTTTTTTTTTT 




ON THE FAST 
TRACK 



For the first time in the history 
of McKendree College, a track 
and field team was born. Seven 
collegiate track and field teams 
from Illinois and Missouri 
competed in the first annual 
McKendree Track and Field 
Open. On this day, records 
were set, memories were made, 
and dreams were realized. 



Coach Gary White and his 40 
athletes produced 1 8 first place 
spots, winning 215 points in 
the women's events and 165 
points in the men's. Three 
McKendree athletes gained 
All-American status in NAIA 
indoor track and field 
competition : Sarah Korir, Jackson 
Makene, and Patrick Rono. 



Jana Fischer concentrates for her The girls think about their strategy,

Yearbook staff member and copy writer, Andrea Kowzan. 




Assistant editor. Jennifer Heitman, and editor, Kawanna Tate. 

1997 McKendrean 
Yearbook Staff 

"Producing the yearbook has been a most exciting, yet difficult, 
challenge. Working with a staff of only two others, we have 
tried to cover McKendree life that revealed what we saw and 
considered as Jl Different Twist Special thanks to 
Jennifer and Andrea for their work and dedication; to Lucy 
Conner, our yearbook representative; and to Jeni Wise of 
Student Affairs." 

Kawanna Tate, Yearbook Editor 

Colophon 

Jl Different 7wis&N2& printed by Herff Jones Yearbooks 
at its plant in Marceline, Missouri. The antique red Geo 
Embossed cover was designed by the staff using a black 
silkscreen and the McKendree seal in gold foil. The maize 
endsheet was recycled paper. The 9x12 book consisted of 1 00 
pages printed on 80# Bordeaux paper. There was one signature 
of Vintage color. In addition, a 1 6-page color world-in-review 
minimag was sewn between the second and third signatures. 
Pages were submitted using IBM/PC computers, PageMaker 
5.0, and Herff Jones' software templates: The Gallery, Portfolio, 
TypeMaster, and PageMaster. Times and Lucida Calligraphy 
fonts were used. Press run was 150 copies.
