An old tradition gets a new name: "This year El Rancho was introduced to a new event, Winter Belle, which replaced the traditional Basketball Belle. Ten girls were nominated by the winter sports: basketball, soccer, and wrestling and also by the Senate. El Rancho's student body voted for one Belle and four Princesses."
Powder Puff: While the boys dressed crazy this year, they did not actually dress "like girls," as is the custom today.
Girls Athletic Association (GAA): "In recent years the ER GAA has undergone many changes.

New Sports Team: Boys' Soccer.
