A Homecoming in Review
By Alexa Cline, Senior
Last week, Pawnee City High School put on a homecoming to remember and rallied the community together in celebration of the annual event. Unfortunately, just as all good things do, the festivities have drawn to an end, and all there is to do now is remember.
Tuesday kicked off the week with the annual pancake feed, sponsored by the Student Council and Pawnee Fireman. Over one hundred students and faculty members stopped by to kickstart their day with the provided breakfast and juice in the Ag Shop. Also occurring Tuesday, the Lady Indians played the Freeman Falcons. Pawnee lost, but the girls redeemed themselves by defeating JCC later in the week. Also big news in the sports community, the Pawnee City cross country team placed second at the Rockport Invite (the group’s first time placing as a team).
Of course, the beginning of the end came too soon and in no time Friday was here-- the day everyone was waiting for. Hot dogs and hamburgers were grilled for the students to provide energy for the following Dodgeball Tournament. The championship game featured the juniors vs the faculty with the juniors emerging victorious. From here the school moved to the courthouse for the annual pep rally where games were enjoyed by all those present.
Later that night, the event everyone was waiting for, the Pawnee City Indians faced off against the Friend Bulldogs. The Indians lost, but not for the lack of trying. And following the game, the homecoming court was announced. For those of you who missed it, the results are as follows.
The freshman attendants had a tie for the boys between Andrew Davis and Trent Grizzle with Cassie Martin as the girl’s winner. From the sophomores were Steven Bruns and Hannah Meyer, and from the juniors Ted Gyhra and Mikaila Engelken. The senior attendants were Clayton Branek and Marissa Meyers, the prince and princess were Tyler Gyhra and Shelby Hundley, and lastly the Homecoming King and Queen was Jenna Habegger and Hayden Meyer.
