For some 30 plus football years, the Mac-High Grizzles had out-scored the West Linn Lions, not necessarily out-played them just out-scored them. Many were the times when the defeated Lions came home wishing they had never left. When the Mac game rolled around this year, there was a new kind of excitement in the air; one of the great expectations and bold confidence. It was unlike any other year and you could feel the tenseness and anticipation of the team. The pep assembly that day unleashed the first burst of student body spirit and unity. The Rally Squad presented the entire team with musical horns, urging them to "outplay the Grizzles." At the game that night, the spirit was overwhelming. When our boys ran onto the field, you could sense their readiness and eagerness. A high goal had been set and they strived to achieve it. The unity which was displayed throughout the game represented their strong determination to win. They knew they must win and that night our mighty LIONS brought home the victory that been sought for over 30 years.
