Can you identify class of 1957 members?

I can find 6 members of the class of 1957 in this photo, which I think was taken in March 1956 when we were juniors and Mt. Morris won a sectional (I think that's what it was called). Perhaps you can't tell it from the photo, but people dressed up to go to ball games in those days--not church clothes, but probably better than school wear. Our wardrobes had a lot more variety in the 50s than the 15 kinds of blue jeans and t-shirts kids wear today.



Quiz: I can spot 3 cheerleaders in the photo, one former cheerleader, and one future cheerleader. Can you name them? Also, I see 2 cousins, a father and son, and a brother and sister in this photo--can you name them?

Update: Murray has identified this as the Fulton Holiday Tournament, which probably means it was in Dec. 1955 and not the spring.

My guesses are: The three cheerleaders in the photo are Patsy Fisher, Joyce Spink, Sandra Messer. The future cheerleader is Janet Fleer. The former cheerleader is Wilma Wolfe. The father and son are Ralph and Dick Zichur. The brother and sister are Stan and Sandra Messer. I give up on the cousins!

I don't see Stan in the photo (although he was obviously there), nor Joyce, nor Wilma. But they could be (back of a head). Hint: one of the cheerleaders is class of 1957--3 seniors and 1 junior on the squad.

Well, the Jr. cheerleader would be Sara Yoder but I don't see her in the photo.

Whoops... a second look with my glasses shows the back of Sara's head just back left of Zick's head.

No one's guessed the brother and sister correctly or the cousins. Millers are right about the father and son and future cheerleader

The brother and sister is Bobby and Gerry Hanke, not sure about the cousins.
