Homecoming, Sept. 26 brought spirit to the week, football games, and dances along with a homecoming court. The court is filled with students that have been nominated and then voted on by their peers to become their class king, queen, prince, or princess.

Students got the opportunity to send in names of students that they wanted to run for the homecoming court. Once those students names were received they then got the choice to run or decline the offer. The final voting then took place after the nominations who had their names submitted the most times agreed.

“I was really excited when I found out that I won with Claire Cox, I didn’t know the whole voting process, so I was surprised about the whole thing,” sophomore Will Syrus said.

The winners  got to go out on the field at half time during the homecoming football game against Avon on Friday Sept. 25. Winning students were then announced to the crowd while being given their court sashes. Tigers lost to Avon 36-14.

“The whole experience was great especially to share with Claire, and it would be great to have the same opportunity the next two years,” Syrus said.

Freshmen court consisted of Mario Capo and Leah David. Sophomore winners were Will Syrus and Claire Cox. Juniors Janey Schmidt and Brendan Toungate won for their class. The senior homecoming court it included Justin Brooks, Gabe Donnelly,  Zach Eaton, Logan Hoffman, Sneha Jogi, Brooke McCoy, and Rachel Naylor. The homecoming king was Justin Brooks and the queen was Brooke McCoy.
