Welcome to a new decade. We are wit- 
nessing the rebirth of time which, like 
the Phoenix, is born of its own ashes, 
rising to great heights only to die and 
be reincarnated again. Part of that cy- 
cle, a new beginning, is just beyond the 

The 90s will offer new opportunities, 
and fulfill great promises, whether it be 
through the launching of a career, 
achieving academic goals, or by initiat- 
ing new steps towards discovery and 
freedom. For others, we will witness the 
birth of ideas, perspectives, and emo- 
tions. The 90s will offer graduating Sen- 
iors a new beginning of their lives — 
the beginning of their careers and an 
end to torturous days of continual 
study. Then there are those who opt to 
study, and the 90s offers them only the 
best as they journey on towards gradu- 
ate school. 

In any case we must remember that 
we are a small part of a vast universe. 

swept up together in one continual cy- 
cle. Trom day to day the Sun follows a 
cycle from sunrise to sunset; and from 
birth to death we rise and are gently laid 
to rest. What has been diminished lives 
on through words, photographs and 
other reflections of our yesterdays. 

The phoenix is represented through- 
out this book to illustrate the cycle of 
life at Eckerd College, and to help us 
reflect on our year, to say good bye to 
the 80s while looking towards the 90s 
and our future. 


Welcome To The 1990's: The 
Birth Of A New Decade 


SJuM Life^ 

Autumn Term Helps Fresh -Ecks 
Orient To Life In College 

Throughout Autumn Term freshmen from all over the world 
got acquainted with each other, and they had one thing in 
common: they were new to Eckerd College. Most of them 
weren't used to sharing a bathroom with sixteen people, or 
even living with another person. An objective of Autumn Term 
was to help them make the transition from home-life to com- 
munal living. New quests ranged from eating 'Saga " to at- 
tempting to get to sleep before 4 a.m. Cooperation was the 
word throughout Autumn Term. Resident Advisors and Au- 
tumn Term activators tried to make the transition easier, and 
even the games at Funlympics emphasized cooperation be- 
tween dormmates. 


Krazy Kappa 

Krazy Kappa Carnival was 
Eckerd's way of welcoming 
the upperclassmen back after 
a seemingly short summer, 
and it also helped the fresh- 
men realize that, yes, there is 
life after Camp Eckerd. From 
volleyball to water bombard- 
ment competitions, each 
complex had its chance to 

show everyone what it's made 
of. During the day Krazy- 
Kappa was a good old Ameri- 
can picnic, with sun, ftin, 
food, and music, and that 
night, with music provided by 
Shamrock, students partied 
all through the night to start 
the year off with a bang.

Parents And Students Enjoy _ 
The Annual Kon-Tiki Events 

Kon-Tiki was held riovember 4, as part of the annual 
Parent's Weekend. The main event was the exciting and 
amusing raft race in Frenchman's Creek. The winning team 
manned the "AIDS Awareness Raft ". Constructed by Delta 
Complex, this raft was made entirely of inflated condoms. 
The best-theme-award was presented to Dante House for its 
"Exxon Valdez." 

In addition to the raft race, parents and students had the 
opportunity to try out waterfront equipment. There was also 
two-on-two volleyball competition, as well as a variety of 
other sports activities. Refreshments and T-shirts were 
available, with all proceeds going to All-Childrens' Hospital. 

Homelycoming '89 

When people in Florida think of 
Homecoming, they think of pep ral- 
lies and tailgate parties and serious 
football competition. Well Eckerd 
may not be able to compete with UF's 
Gator Growl, but we have something 
that is unique and special to us . . . 

This year's theme was "Winter 
Wonderiand." Office windows and 
bathroom mirrors all over campus 
were decorated with spray snow an- 
nouncements that "Homelycoming 
'89" was upon us. 

The big day began with the tradi- 
tional float parade. Beecher, Scott, 
Blakely, Wilson and the Cheerieaders 
all gave their impressions of an Eck- 
erd Christmas. Beecher, with their 
"Santa Pimp" float, came in first 
place, followed by the Cheerleaders 
and Wilson. 

After the parade, fooLball fans were 
treated to not one, but Kvo exciting 
football games. The fu'- was be- 
tween the Alumni team am - intra- 
mural champs, the Nu Wt am. 

Members of the Alumni team includ- 
ed such noteables as Housing Direc- 
tor Wayne Harwell, Recreation Coor- 
dinator Chris Roby and Basketball 
Coach Tom Ryan. After a Mu West vic- 
tory, both teams settled back to relax 
and watch the second game of the 

Unlike the sound of its name, the 
Powderpuff game was as rough and 
tumble as the guy's game. Both 
teams fought a tough battle and both 
left the field with their share of iryu- 

next came fun for all in the Queen 
Contest. After modeling for the 
judges and a brief question and an- 
swer session, Blakely's own Tom 
"Big Bombs" Bertoni and his escort, 
Sam Penetta, walked away with first 

After all the excitement for the day, 
students danced the night away at 
the Dalton-Douglas semi-formal 
dance in Fox hall. All proceeds from 
the dance were donated to AIDS re-

"The best is the deep silence in which I

— J.W. Goethe 

Becky Kreglmg 

Life IS a strange journey through harsh 
and forbidding territory. No one gets out 
of here alive. The dangers are many, the 
rewards are few. Life is sarcastic and 
cruel. It plays havoc with the best of 
intentions and always sows the seeds of 
the worst. The only sources of light and 
hope in this dark and barren land are 

love and friendship. Without these, no 
mortal can survive the mockery of fate. 
Friendship is the best defense one has 
against the malevolent forces along the 
road. Friendship is very valuable and 
important . . .

building a new program, has a lot to look 
forward to. Twelve out of the nineteen 
members on the team are freshmen,

Instrumental in the rebirth of the team 
are the leading scorers. Carlos Somoano, 
a junior, plays forward. Chris Casey, a 
freshman, is a midfielder. Mike Corbosiero, 
another junior, also plays forward. 

Although last year's team had three wins 
and eight losses. Coach Jim DiNoble 
explains that the team is coming together, 
trying to compete in a very tough 
conference. With the emergence of young 
and talented players, the men's soccer 
team will rise above the others who have 
been holding them down.

Coach/Captain for the Women's Soccer 
team's second year of existence at Eckerd. 
Sean "Slick " Blair also acted as coach. 
Senior Charlotte Todd also acted as 
captain for the "St. Pete Strikers". This 
year's team started its Sept.-March season

This year's Women's Volleyball 
Team started with bright hopes. 
Under the direction of Coach 
Mancy Roby the Lady Tritons 
hope to have their first winning 
season ever. 

Playing prominent roles in the 
return of the team were the three 
co-captains, all seniors. Middle 
Blocker Diane Sands holds the 
school record in solo blocks, 
with 95, and received the MVP 
for the team last year. Eileen 
O'Reilly, the setter, led the team 
on the court by directing the 
plays. Cammie Maki was the 
hitter and a distinct force on the 
front line. 

Coach Roby hopes to change 
the mindset' ' of the students 
toward supporting the players to 
give them a winning attitude. 


The Cross Country Team, regrouped in 
1989 with runners from the previous year 
and new recruits, building one of the 
largest teams (13 runners) in Eckerd 
College's history. Scott Bransford and 
Sean Conklin were the number one and 
two runners respectively. Bransford the 
first runner to be sent to regional finals 
from Eckerd, remains the leading force on 
the team. 

The Women's team was also the largest 
in recent history. Kim Eagen, ranked last 
year in the top 30 of Division II, was also 
in the top 3 of the Southeastern 
Regionals. Coach Wes Koenig attributes the 
recent rise in the team's performance to 
the organization of his staff, and the talent 
of the running teams.

team combined a blend of 
experienced talent and exciting 
new faces this year. As a result 
they made it to the top of the 
Sunshine State Conference. All- 
American candidate Dwayne 
Perry continued to lead the team 
to victory throughout his senior 
year. Returning teammates 
included Perry's co-captain, Vic

Optimism is the key v.ord for 
the Lady Triton's 1989-90 
season, and they seem to have 
every reason to be. Under new 
head coach Bob Nichols, the 
team will emphasize defense and 
rebounding through offensive 
improvement. Team members 
gained valuable experience, with 
nine returning from last year's 
team. Two transfers and two 
freshmen round out a Lady 
Triton team which could be a top 
contender in the Sunshine State 

Bas all 

The 1989 Baseball Teawi, 
ranked in the top ten in Division 
II for the 15th year in a row. 
finished the season with a record 
of 30 wins and 19 losses, tying 
for 3rd in the Sunshine State 
Conference. The season had 
807o pitching victories. The team 
was headed by seniors Ron 
Watson. Steve Gill and Jamie 
Holway. sophomores Scott 
Brodkorb, Eric Zylman, Tim 
Thielen, Shane Berry, and Jim 
Mecir (who went 8-3 as a 
freshman last year). Junior 3rd

South Region and was an Ail- 
American Candidate.

The Triton Softball team is 
going into the 90s seeking to 
improve last season's record. 
The team was 12-18 (9-15 in 
conference games), with only 
three players graduating. Coach 
Di Moble is confident that 
capable replacements will be 
found. Key returning players 
include: first-team, all-conference 
selection. Coy Miller at 
shortstop, and Michele Lemons, 
who was selected to the second- 
team, all-conference. When this 
proven talent is combined with 
new players, an exciting season 
is surely on the horizon. 


The Eckerd College ;,:rch and 
Rescue Team (ES-SARj was 
established in 1971 to provide

become one of the most respected 
search and rescue organizations on 
the west coast of Florida.

The Eckerd College Triton tvater- 
Ski team has been competing in 
the Southern Conference since 
1985. Although the Tritons could 
be considered a young team, they 
have managed to build a 
competitive program. In the past 
five years the team has captured 
first place in a conference 
tournament, and in 1989 they sent 
six members to the National 
Collegiate All-Star Tournament with 
one water-skier placing first overall. 
The Tritons are currently rated 
third in the Southern Conference.

Mark Smith 

The beginning of the 1990s marks the end of an era 
at Eckerd College. Not only do we bid farewell to the 
eighties, but we will also say good bye to a very 
special man. Mark Smith will be ending his tenure as 
Dean of Students on June 30, 1990. Mark came to 
Eckerd in 1978, and in his eleven years here has 
touched the lives of many students. He has helped us 
learn, by his example, to be competent givers. Mark 
will leave behind big shoes to fill, and he will be 
remembered as an important part of many lives. 
Wishing Mark well with his retirement, we know that he 
and Woody will remain a part of Eckerd for years to

Now that you're finally a graduate, you probably think that college is all behind 
you. Not so, Baccalaureate breath! Now you're an official member of the "A- 
Team" — your Alumni Association. That not only entitles you to some special 
privileges, but also carries some responsibilities such as letting us know where 
you are and what you're doing. 

As an EC Alum, you're invited to be a volunteer in one of our many exciting 
alumni programs such as career service, admissions, reunion weekends, phon- 
athons and more. It's a great way to be a "giver" after graduation. 

Even though you'll probably be leaving the Bay area, Eckerd College will always 
be a part of you. And we want to know how you're doing — your goals, accom- 
plishments, etc. Call us at (8 1 3) 864-8405 or write: Alumni Association, Eckerd 
College, 4200 54th Avenue South, St. Petersburg, FL 33711. 

Good luck and keep in touch!

Fall '89 Students 

Reflections Staff 

As the final semester of the 1990s draws to a close, 
so does another successful edition of the Reflections 
Yearbook. The previous decade was one of reconstruc- 
tion. The repercussions of these events spanned the 
decade, impacting the community here at Eckerd to all 
people around the globe. At its start bridges were con- 
structed. Our own Sunshine Skyway was rebuilt. The 
end of the Eighties presented us with a different view of 
ourselves and the world around us. Barriers were de- 
stroyed. We all witnessed the destruction of the Berlin 
Wall as the decade drew to a close. Hopefully, in our 
own persona! lives we each rebuilt bridges and tore 
down walls. 

The Reflections Yearbook also underwent a recon- 
struction. The phoenix was chosen to symbolize such a 
rebirth, and despite the projections of others, it has 
been established once again. There was a struggle 
financially and, with a staff of only ten, at times morale 

was low. Were our efforts worth it? You decide. Our 
work now rests in your hands. 

Our wish is extended to you, especially the Seniors, 
to make the new decade a time of your own rebirth. We 
gratefully thank all staff members who made another 
edition possible, and everyone else who encouraged 
and supported its publication. Without Lisa, our Senior 
Editor-in-Chief, This yearbook would not exist. As with 
her work on other publications she organized our ef- 
forts, and united our spirits. She not only deserves a 
big thank you . . . Lisa has earned a heartfelt goodbye. 
Lisa, we will remember you as a co-worker and as a 

The new decade holds a promise of hope and peace 
on its horizon. 

Like the phoenix, leave behind the ashes of yester- 
day. Rise from todays fires and fly high into your fu-
