OFFICE OF THE PRESIDENT
This edition of the UNLV yearbook marks a return to one of the
traditions that make the university experience memorable.
Traditions are important to us because they help give us a
sense of belonging to and caring for this University. The
presence of this book on your shelf in the years to come will
allow you an opportunity to recreate through memory some of that
sense of community you enjoyed during your years here at UNLV.
There is a wonderful element of family present on this campus
among the varied and talented men and women who make up the
student body. . It is not the buildings that make a university,
not the dormitories, nor the classrooms, nor the student centers;
it is the students themselves and the faculty and the staff, all
working together to see that an environment is created in which
education can occur. As president, I am blessed with a student
body, faculty and staff that would be a credit to any university
in this country.
To those of you who are graduating, I have this message: I
recognize that for true intellectual beings, education is never
complete, but goes on throughout one's life. What you have done
here, if you have been Successful, is to learn how to continue
that education on your own as you move on to the other phases of
your lives, on to other places, other work. I am proud to have
been associated with you at this great University. I wish you
God's speed and Hisbounty as you pursue your course in life. To
those of you returning, I have this message: UNLV can be only as
good as you are willing to let it be, despite how hard anyone
else works for its success. I hope you share the same pride as I
We are UNLV1

"We had to replace key individuals, including a star like Randall Cunningham.
Yet we still may finish second in the conference. I know we have a strong program ana
an upgraded schedule so there are no patsies." , .
Over the past three seasons, UNLV is 23-11-1 under Hyde, a big turn-around since
the 3-8 season in 1982. Hyde has proven that he can win in the PCAA as well, posting a
15-4-1 record over the past three seasons and never finishing lower than second over
that same span. . .
"We had several firsts for UNLV football this season, said Hyde. We were the
first PCAA school to play a Big Ten school and in that game we played before the
largest crowd in the history of UNLV football. Overall, we had the best seasonal attendance
of any previous year at UNLV. Even though we did not reach our goal of
repeating as conference champions, we did not have a losing season."
Individually, several Rebels had outstanding seasons. Daryl Knox established
himself as one of the nation's premier outside linebackers and a definite pro prospect.
Knox was the Rebel's second leading tackjer with 99 total tackles, including a team
leading 21 sacks. Alvin Horn filled in the injured Eddie Saignes place and led the team
in total tackles with 106. Runningbacks Tony Lewis and firk Jones once again combined
as one of the strongest running duos in the nation. Jones gained 790 yards on
156 carries while Lewis gained 625 yards in 121 carries. Punter Bob Hulberg stepped
right in with a 42.2 average per boot with a long kick of 75 yards against S.W. Louisiana.
Placekicker Joey DiGiovanna led the team in scoring with 51 points. He was
21-22 in PAT's and 10-15 in field goals. Kickoff specialist Dave Duran, who is expected
to also take over the PAT and field goal kicking from the graduating DiGiovanna,
had 30 of 55 kickoffs.
Looking ahead to 1986, the Rebels have a strong nucleus of returning players.
Afterall, there are only 16 players who will be lost to graduation. According to Hyde,
UNLV does not have any particular areas to concentrate recruiting on. Hyde will just
go after the best players that he can find. His philosophy on recruiting is that if he can
find someone better at a particular position, he will go after that player.
With a total of 16 seniors leaving the Rebel program, Hyde respects them and thanks
them for what they contributed to the UNLV football program.
"For our seniors who have been here, they have had the opportunity to play on a
champion team, to play on a bowl team, and experience a positive collegiate program
I would like to wish them all the best of luck in whatever they go on to do."

The yell leaders are an organization composed of men
and women who are dedicated to promoting spirit on
the UNLV campus. The yell leaders support men's and
women's teams at the university. The squad is open to
all students. In order to become a yell leader, one must
go through several tryout procedures based on appearance,
ability, and personality.
The yell leader's endless enthusiasm, spirit, and
character has added greatly to the UNLV campus.

UNLV finished the season with an 18-2-2 record. UNLV won
more matches than ever before; it lost fewer matches than
before; and tied for playing the most matches in a season.
UNLV finished the regular season ranked fourth in the nation
by Soccer America magazine; eighth in the nation by the Intercollegiate
Soccer Association of America (ISAA); and second in
the Far West region by ISSA. The Rebels were as high as No. 2
by Soccer America and No. 7 by ISAA. These were both UNLV
records. UNLV remained second in the Far West (behind
UCLA) throughout the entire season.
UNLV looses five seniors from 1985's teams. Foward Robbie
Ryerson; Goalkeeper Harry Fields; Winger Rob Tabler; Midfielder
Mark Olejnik; and Fullback Jim Voydat will all move on
from UNLV. Ryerson set the all-time UNLV scoring record
with 67 goals throughout his career. He was also the PCAA
Player-of-the-Year as well as first team All PCAA selection. He
is currently being considered for both the Adi Dassler Award
and the Hermann Trophy (for college soccer's Player-of-the-
Year). Ryerson will also be a member of the 1985 Senior Bowl
Fields was a second team All-PCAA selection. In 6,555 minutes
of play, he allowed only 57 goals, made 282 saves, registered 23
solo shutouts and had a 0.78 goals against average. Tabler was
selected as a second team All-PCAA pick. He finished first in the
PCAA in assists with 10 assists in 22 games. He has 11 goals and

In two years with UNLV, he tallied 11 goals, 7 assists

Under his guidance, Reitz steadly built the women's program

There's a motto that Head Coach Fred Dallimore believes in:
"You're only as good as you play," in that case, the 1986 Rebel
baseball team was in for a terrific challenge.
1986 featured a traditional tough schedule by UNLV baseball
as they took on national powers such as USC, University of
Oklahoma, Washington State University, University of
Alabama, University of Nebraska, PCAA foes Fresno State
University and Cal State-Fullerton, and home-and-home series'
with Brigham Young University, Oklahoma State University,
and Arizona State University.
"The NCAA puts a lot of emphasis on the strength of your
schedule when determining play-off bids," said Fred Dallimore,
now in his thirteenth season as skipper. "Evidently our schedule
wasn't tough enough to receive an at large bid last season (40-21
record), so we made it doubly tough this season.
Said Dallimore in the beginning of the season, "I rank the
PCAA conference in the top four in the country ... it is just as
good as the six-PAC. I feel the league is capable of having three
teams to go on to post-season play."
Concerning the outfielders, Dallimore stated, "We have the
personnel to cover foul line to foul line. This is the most depth
we ve had in many years, especially in the outfield. Joe Barrett is
good defensive outfielder ... Reed Peters had an outstanding
freshman year and plays with consistency. The third outfield slot
was up for grabs with Arned Hernandez, Jim Bob Wells Kevin

After a three year period without a women's softball
team, the University of Nevada, Las Vegas
brought the sport back for the 1985 season. Competing
in the nation's toughest conference — the
PCAA — and against a number of non-conference
top 20 schools, UNLV finished the season with a very
respectable 28-32 record, 6-10 in the PCAA last year.
Perhaps one of the toughest obstacles faced by
Head Coach Frances Cox and her troops, outside of
the stiff competition, was the fact that many of the
players had not been involved in the fast-pitch game
for a number of years. With the year of experience
under their collective belts, the Rebels had high hopes
to improve on last season's record.
We have better overall athletes now than we had
last year," stated Cox. "We also picked up a lot of
speed, which I think was the biggest key to a more
successful season this year."
In all, a total of nine letterwinners returned from
last season's squad. Beginning with the infield.
UNLV had Debbie Wilson, return. Wilson batted
.200 last year with a tie for the team lead in RBI's
with 22. Alonda Jones also returned. Last year Jones
'23o and was second on the team in hits with

selected as a first-team All-PCAA pick at third base.
In the outfield the Rebels were very strong with
Lisa Anderson, Jerri Hill, and Karen Benson. Debbie
IS"' ilonda J0"es' and Rachel Miller also added
depth to the outfield.

Three seasons ago, the UNLV
Lady Rebel basketball team —
boasting an excellent 24-4
overall record — was overlooked
by the NCAA selection committee
due to their independent
status. This season, however,
the Lady Rebels earned their
third consecutive NCAA bid
and defended their conference
crown in one of the strongest
leagues in the country. The
Lady Rebels plowed through the
49ers 9f Long Beach to become
third time PCAA Champions.
All five starters returned for
the 1985-86 season, including
several other letter winners
from last year's 26-5 PCAA
Championship team. There was
also a fine recruiting class.
The PCAA has changed
dramatically since its beginning
two years ago. At this time, the
conference only had three
members — UNLV, University
of California Santa Barbara
University of California Irvine'
Two additional teams, University
of Hawaii and the Universi-
!he Pacific> joined the
PCAA last year. This year, the
conference has grown to eight
teams with the addition of San
Diego State University, California
State Fullerton, and perennial
power California State
Bolla explained that the
strength of the conference gave
the team credibility, since in the
past people have doubted them
The top returnee for the Lady
Rebds was All-American Candidate
Misty Thomas. Thomas

3 TIME PCAA
UNLV LADY REBELS CHAMPIONS
After a disappointing finish in the 1984 PCAA
Golf Championships, UNLV remembered the
lessons that were learned and stormed back for a
third place in last year's Championships.
Leading UNLV's into this 1986 season were
seniors Skip Kendall and Steve Fischer. Fischer
was UNLV top golfer last year with Kendall right
Next are a pair of juniors, Jeff Bisbee and
Charles Berry. Bisbee was UNLV's third leading
golfer last year. UNLV had two sophomores thisl
season, Joe Neff and Denis Downs.
The overall youth of UNLV's team was quite evident
in the fact that a total of five freshman made
up nearly half of UNLV's 11-man roster.

UNLV TRACK AND FIELD
In the past, UNLV has been small in numbers with top
quality athletes. For the first time in UNLV history, Head
Coach A1 McDaniels had more depth and quality athletes
than the program has ever had.
The 1985-86 season proved to be very exciting for the
Rebels. Newcomers Carrie Franklin and Sonji Green added
speed in the sprints. Franklin was voted one of the top
sprinters in the country out of high school by Track and
Field News last spring. These two freshmen joined
sophomore Paula Ready and seniors Inger Peterson and
Michelle Stewart in the sprints. Ready established herself
last season at the PCAA Championships as runner-up in
the 100 meters (11.81) behind teammate Peterson (11.77).
Stewart took second in the 400 meters (55.31) which
helped UNLV dominate the conference meet in the
McDaniels feels that in the past UNLV has been weak in
the middle distance runs and in the field events. This
season changed that old attitude with stronger middle
distance runners wich as sophomore Trena Hull and Jackie
Love and junior Susie Hensel in the 800 to 3,000 meter
Nothing was easy for the Rebel track team this season.
One thing was for sure, McDaniels is constantly growing
with his team ea . year. Every year he produces All-
Americas and has to rewrite the UNLV record books at the
end of the season. Last year alone, UNLV set eight indoor
records nine outdoor records, four PCAA records and one
NCAA record. It shows that UNLV's goal is to be a conference
dominator and eventually reach their goal of more
athletes at the National level.

program. It is only fitting
that the Epilogue share one
last look of an outstanding
year with an outstanding
university. Captured here are
some of the moments that
have made UNLV History.
"DEFENDING THE TERRITORY" was the theme for
the UNLV 1985 Homecoming. It was a fun-filled week of
events encouraging spirit and enthusiasm throughout the
Thursday began the activities for homecoming which
started with a jello slurping and pie eating contest, a
favorite among UNLV students. There was also live music
in the MSU courtyard. The activities were concluded with
the introduction of the homecoming queen candidates. Friday's
events were kicked off with a pep rally and more live
music in the courtyard. There were also many events such
as the notorious tug-of-war. Saturday October 26 started
with a spirited tailgate party at the Silver Bowl. During
Halftime the homecoming queen was announced. The new
1985 Homecoming Queen was Karen Hare. The first runner
up was Ann Potenza; second runner up, Janu Tornell;
third runner up, Stephanie Petit; and, fourth runner up,
Hannamarie Curts. In the float competition, the winners
were in the first class, 25 feet and over, ATO; second place,
Kappa Sigma, In the Second class, under 25 feet, first place
went to Sigma Alpha Epsilon; second place, ZBT and
Sigma Nu; and third place, Delta Zeta. The rebels unfortunately
were defeated by the S.W. Louisiana Cajans.
However, the post game party at the MSU, with live music,
full bar, and dancing seemed to lift everyone's spirits.
Once again, Homecoming 1985 provided a fun-filled
week for everyone at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas.

Convenience is the main reason students live in

In Tonopah Hall there is never a mad rush for the
bathroom at the end of the hall, because every room has its
own sink and a bathroom that is shared with one other
room only. Every floor has a laundry room where students
are often seen washing last weeks laundry, or looking for
that stray sock they just noticed missing from last week.
Students from as close as Las Vegas, and as far as Asia
reside in Tonopah Hall giving it a uniqueness all its own
One can always find students in the lobby involved in a

Pert Sweet stated, "If it is a
fine. We'll come and play
with our positive message and shine a
little light into Las Vegas." The band
was excited about the concert and
couldn't care less about the stigma
associated with the city.
On the cover of their latest LP,
Soldiers Under Command, the band
is depicted holding all manner of
guns and weaponry. This appears to
make little sense when one first sees
the record. When asked why a Christian
band would be a party to such an
album cover, Sweet replied, "The
cover is a visual parable symbolizing
many things at once. For one, the
constant battle between good and
evil. Also, if you're a soldier in that
war, you had better arm yourself
Jesus once said, "I come not to bring
peace, but a sword!" The band
wanted to recreate that statement
visually, but they didn't want to use
swords, because they wanted a
modern look. That is where the guns
come in. „ , „
On the back of the album cover,
Robert himself, holds two swords in
his hand. He explained that besides
being a parody of two drum sticks,
the swords symbolize one, the sharp
knife of rock and roll, and the
double-edged sword of God s^word
combined, comes forth Stxyper.
When asked if Robert Sweet
thought his band was setting a
negative example for their younger
more impressionable fans by waving
war toys on their album cover, Sweet
stated that he feels anybody who examines
the album as a whole will
comprehend the band's true message.
And what of those who don't have
the chance to examine the whole
album? Well, Sweet admits the cover
is confusing at first glance. He
prepared a few paragraphs to be placed
on the album's plastic cover in the
form of a sticker. The sticker was to
explain the band's philosophy and
the meaning behind the controversial
album cover. But due to the unprecedented
demand for Stryper's
latest recording, the album was shipped
out earlier without stickers.
The name of the band is taken
from the Bible, Isaiah 53:5 Old Testament.
In this text, it is prophesied
what rigors the Lord will have to face.
At one point, it is written, "By his
strips, we shall be healed." The strips
referred to the 39 lashes Jesus takes
from a whip. The actual name
Stryper is an acronym for salvation
through redemptiom yielding peace,
encouragement and righteousness.
No one in the band drinks or takes
drugs. . , . T ,r
The group arrived in Las Vegas
two days before the show to turn a
video. In closing Sweet stated that he
wants all his fans to know, "God is
not so bad after all."

more than 20 beers, and led the
crowd in crazy songs and toasts.
Later that night there was a toga party
held in the MSU ballroom which
included live music and beer.
In addition to the activities during
Springfest, Inland Empire Shows

The renewed interest in the Greek
system seems destined to grow and
expand. The Greek organization attempts
to promote unity among its
members along with offering a different
type of experience, and a

sororities. Although this is relatively
small, the membership within each is
continually growing. For many

The Greek lifestyle saw a steep
decline in the 60's, but as 1987 approaches
there is a movement in the
opposite direction. Despite criticisms
either justified or exaggerated, the
Greek system has survived to
strengthen the bonds of brotherhood.
Some criticism are diminished by
better understanding of the system
and all its traditions. At the beginning

FUN AND UNITY
Greek Week, the biggest event
sponsored by the Greek system, took
place from April 24, through May 4.
This traditional event was designated
as a citywide event by Las Vegas
Mayor, Bill Briare.
Bill DiBenedetto, Interfraternity
Council President felt that along with
having fun, Greek Week promoted
unity among the Greeks. He also emphasized
that the Greeks work
together to raise money for local
charities. This year's Greek Week
raised money for the Special Olympics,
and Opportunity Village.
Greek Week included such events
as a toga party, tug-of-war, basketball,
bowling, carnival events, football,
the crazy Greek Sing, night golf,
and many other fun events. Many
awards were handed out along with
the crowning of the Greek Week God
DiBenedetto is very pleased with
the success that the Greek system has
made on the UNLV campus.
DiBenedetto stated that an Order of
Omega, which is similar to an honor
society, was established. It will include
the top five percent of all the
Greek Week was not only a week of
fun, but a tool to build unity and
mutual respect among the Greeks. It
was also a successful week which
benefitted local charities. Indeed the
Greek system is an organization
striving for the betterment of all.

ALPHA EPSILON PI
ALPHA TAU OMEGA
Alpha Tau Omega is a name
well-known to this campus for
fun and good parties. However,
its real nature is known only to
that select few who pride
themselves in its membership.
To outsiders, it is a strange
assortment of men who are better
known for their individuality
rather than some collective
identity. They know that all the
riches that they might ever
posses would be worth the
sacrifice of the brotherhood to
which they now belong.

There is more to the Greek system
than most non-Greek students
realize. This organization composed
of fraternities and sororities is attempting
to convey a message long
forgotten through the passage of
time. „. .
Behind the apparent frivolity involved
with being a Greek, is a great
deal of substance. With each set of
Greek letters there is a strong tradition
which is unique to no other
a membership that is dedicated to
working for its success, being a
member of the Greek organization
involves a lot of work and time attending
meetings, philanthropy projects,
and worthwhile competitions.
The Greek system is more than a
simple affiliation. It's a responsibility.
It's a commitment to work tor
others, which establishes in its
members, a sense of belonging and
confidence that helps one accept the
challenges of life.

THE MANAGEMENT AND STAFF OF
THE UNLV BOOKSTORE WISH YOU
WELL IN YOUR FUTURE
In today's credential oriented society, your potential is measured by
the worth of your college degree. And the value of that degree is
determined by the quality of the institution that grants it.
There is a group of private citizens who care about and are working
to increase the value of the University of Nevada, Las Vegas and
hence, your degree.
We are that group - the University Foundation, UNLVs official nonprofit
fund raising organization.
