Female student - I attended Lady Beck Public School, and some
years we would look out the windows and watch this
wonderful display. I always looked forward to
attending Sir Adam Beck and being a part of this.
However, it was canceled when I was in Grade
9 and my dream was lost.

1969-1970 "It was the first year Beck had male cheerleaders, and it was a gas. Both Sharon (my sister) & I were on the team, Sharon was the captain. I’ll give you a hint as to which ones we are: look for the two with the tanned legs!
And there’s another bonus – I had everyone autograph the back of the photo. Unfortunately I can’t quite recall which name goes with which face: Annie Barons, Nancy Wilson, Beth Ennis (I’m pretty sure she’s the splits on the left. I remember her since she could also do the splits straight down the middle [yowch!]), Jerry Nellestyn, Rick Wagner, Marilyn Walsh, Karen Sadlowski, Dale Boost, Steve Symons, Doug Douglas (or Dougas), Meredith Shepard, Ken Savage, and Daryl Leeson (I’m pretty sure he’s the one with the cheezey grin…perhaps I was giving him a leg-strangle!)"
Beck's Last Football Game
