I recently acquired these photos from the Way Back Machine featuring some Old Mission Peninsula School cheerleaders. I thought it’d be fun to see if you know who they are. It’ll probably help if you were around or attended OMPS when the photo was taken.

I’ll give you a day or two to see if anyone knows, and then will post the names at the bottom of this story. Hint: These photos were taken in the 1960s. (In the gym – you can see the now-gone stage and stage curtain behind them.)

Also, here’s another quiz: There were two OMPS cheers (that Tim and I can remember). Do you know what they are?

Hint: One started “We are the Panthers…” and the other started “We have a P for our Peninsula…”

  1. One of them is Letty Grishaw. And another might be Beth Rasmussen.
    We wear a P for our Peninsula,
    We wear an A for fine athletes,
    We wear an N for our nobility
    We wear a T for teamwork too…for teamwork, too
    We wear an H for our humanity
    We wear an E for extra good
    We wear an R and an S for real good sportsmanship
    And that spells PANTHERS too!

    We ar the Panthers, the mighty, mighty Panthers!!
    I’m thinking that isn’t entirely right but funny how some of it comes back! After all these years!

  2. I’m thinking Sherry Boursaw is one of the cheerleaders, right?
    How about: We are the Panthers
    The mighty, mighty, Panthers.
    Everywhere we go, people wanna know, who we are, so we tell them….. 🙂

  3. Graduated from OMPS 1963. Mrs. Warren made our uniforms. Jan Jamieson, Mary Jo Solmonson, Terry Lynn McManus, Jeannie Feiker, me. “…who are the Panthers? We are, we are, we are the best, Old Mission Panthers, yes, yes yes!”
