Seniors seek second consecutive win

As the annual homecoming night approaches, classes seem to scramble to put the final touches on their float. The seniors this year not only juggle the three-week deadline, shorter by a week than past years, but also a smaller amount of class participation.

?About 11 people have shown up to the meetings and only the boys actually work on the float,? Kedric Anderson said. ?We are pretty far along because most of the hard work is done. We just need to put everything together.?

Senior Coleton Hutchins hosted float building at his house in previous years, but Anderson chose to hold construction at his house near school.

“I volunteered my house because we needed a place to work and Coleton couldn’t have it at his house,” Anderson said. “There’s a lot of responsibility and work because I feel like the leader, but it’s fun. If I had another year here, I would do it again.”

Despite three years of experience the seniors flounder to unite in agreements and finish construction.

?There is this one guy that comes to the meetings for 30 minutes and bosses everyone around,” an anonymous male said, “he gets everyone down and wants everything his way; he isn?t open to any suggestions.?

Because of the flexibility of the TV show Lost, the seniors chose the production as their float theme.

“I didn’t like our theme in the beginning,” Rachel Balint said. “I was rooting for The Price is Right, but as the meetings progressed, my attitude changed. Lost includes a lot of people, so that we have a lot of participation, which our class lacks in.”

Despite disagreements concerning float design and props, the seniors remain confident of their ability to come out on top. They hope to finish their last year with a second consecutive first place.

To go along with the TV show theme, the freshman float recreates Cops, the sophomores will feature Survivor and the juniors offer an interpretation of That 70s Show.

“The seniors are definitely going to win this year,” Brock Lopes, ’10, said. “I would say it’s going to be more of a competition for second place.”

Clark Intermediate in Clovis will host the homecoming game on Oct. 19. JV begins at 5 and the varsity will kick off at 7:30 P.M. with the unveiling of the floats at halftime. Tickets cost $6 for adults, $4 for seniors and children and students with ID gain free entry.
