Homecoming came to an end on Feb. 13 with a day full of events. The day’s theme was “Red and White”, as is tradition.

During Activity Period, each class performed a lip sync to a song of their choice. The freshman performed to “Splish, Splash” by Bobby Darin with many props to aid their act. The sophomores performed a high energy show to “Blow” by Ke$ha. “Roar” by Katy Perry was the song choice for the juniors, with an appearance of a “tiger” in their performance. Seniors chose to perform to the final song from the group the “Treblemakers” on the movie “Pitch Perfect.” The reigning champions, the sophomore class, won yet again with a high score from all judges.

“We practiced a lot, and we collaborated with each other to make our performance great,” sophomore Marcus Berntsen said.

The Homecoming Ceremony took place after the boys varsity game. The song choice for the introduction of the candidates was “Waiting for Superman” by Daughtry to go along with the theme “Save the Day.”

The reigning winter homecoming king, Trystan Mies, crowned Sheldon Holland this year’s king.

“It was a privilege to win homecoming king,” Holland said.

Heather Koester, the reigning winter homecoming queen, also returned to crown this year’s queen, Anne Ast.

“I was surprised, embarrassed, and way nervous,” Ast said. “I was ecstatic though. I have never been so happy!”

After the ceremony, the annual Winter Homecoming dance began. StuCo supplied an assortment of snacks and drinks for the students who came, and students could also participate in a washers tournament.

“They could have played better music, but it was okay,” sophomore Chloe Henderson said. “I did like the food a lot though.”
