ROCK RAPIDS, Iowa (STPNS) -- WWG — Despite the crushing loss Friday night to MLA in the homecoming football game, the rest of the week could not have gone any better. The weather was near perfect, and students were able to really get into the spirit of the event.
The Blast From the Past began with the traditional homecoming coronation held last Monday, September 23 in the high school auditorium.
Visitors were treated to a handsome and lovely court of homecoming hopefuls. Mitchell Jarmer and Elizabeth Woelber handled the ushering. Freshmen attendants were Matt Kleven, and Stacy Hanson. Sophomore attendants were Cole Olson, and Mckenzie Deprez. Junior attendants were Walker Christians, and Sawyer Helgeson.
Queen candidates were Hannah DeSmith, Alexa Byers, Steffanie Ankrum, Madison Takle, Jordaan Joel, and Dayna Comnick. King candidates were Matt Otto, Sean McCroskey, Trey Kockelman, Alex Knutson, Levi Bunting, and Shane Buchman.
After introducing the court each class took their turns at presenting a skit, and in between skits coaches and team captains spoke about their season and homecoming week.
Starting the week last Monday students went way back to Caveman Days for their first dress up day. Tuesday was Western Day with messy games played in the afternoon. The volleyball team had a successful night knocking off Adrian in three straight games. Following the volleyball match Parents Night spectators were treated to cake and juice while the bon fire was going. Wednesday the kids headed back to the sixties for Hippie Day. Thursday was Eighties Day with water games in the afternoon.
Friday the Chargers amped up things with Spirit Day dressing in Red and Silver. In the afternoon the homecoming parade was held followed by a pep fest in the gym. That evening the Chargers took on the Wolverines in the annual homecoming tilt, following that students headed to the community center for the traditional homecoming dance.
