The fall homecoming activities kicked off on Sept. 18 and ended on the following Friday with a crowning of this year’s queen and king. Throughout the week, students participated in Spirit Week, which included class competitions that associated with this year’s theme, “Spirit of America,” like decorating a banner creating sidewalk chalk art, and dressing up according to the day’s theme.

“My favorite day was ‘Merica Monday,” sophomore Reagan Ebenkamp said. “I like America and Donald Trump. Trump train!”

Other Spirit days included Wild West Day, Rapper v. Rocker Day, National Peace Day and Red and White day. Each class’s percentage of participation for each day gained them points towards their overall class points.

The students ran on a 1 o’clock schedule on Friday in order to attend the pep rally held in the park and the Amazing Race following at the high school parking lot and track.

“It was cool to see my class get to do something together and cheer them on,” freshman Karlie Biehler said.

The seniors nominated for fall homecoming candidates were Riley Akiu and Delainey Clum, Trenton Jones and Sabrina Bellar, Skyler Kunz and Abagail Heimerman and Matthew Lange and Lacey Pauly. The crowning took place right before the football game at 6:30 where Jones was crowned homecoming king and Bellar was crowned queen.

Jones said winning the crown was glorious, while Bellar said she had one initial thought: cringe.

Fall Homecoming Ceremony 9-22

This year’s fall Homecoming candidates were seniors Sabrina Bellar, Delainey Clum, Abagail Heimerman, Lacey Pauly, Riley Akiu, Trenton Jones, Skyler Kunz and Matthew Lange. After a busy week of spirit week and a pep rally on Friday, the student body was anxious to see who would win Homecoming King and Queen. At 6:30 p.m., people from the community gathered at the football field before the game see that Jones and Bellar had won the fall homecoming King and Queen. “Throughout the week, I heard some comments and was on edge on whether I was going to win or not, so I mentally prepared myself for either the win or the loss,” Bellar said.
