Senior float wins Homecoming parade

With the lights low and R&B music playing, a scream of excitement sounded as students scrambled to the front row to watch king candidates perform and bust a new groove. The five king candidates danced in a choreographed number specifically designed to perform in front of the entire student body on Oct. 18.

“It has been a tradition to start out the king pageant dancing,” Christopher Schultz, students activities director, said. “Watching the boys attempt to get their groove on is something the student body loves to watch.”

After the performance, the students made their way to vote for the candidates they felt should be the future king and queen. Thanks to the support from the Bandos and the student body, Pohl became the undisputed king on campus.

“I thought it was going to be someone who has gone to this school longer than me,” David Pohl, ?03, said. “I think it was the support of the bando’s that kept me in the running. It was fun to take part in the pageant but it did make homecoming week a lot more hectic!”

At the beginning of the Homecoming week, 15 king candidates were put through several activities. They played Fear Factor, Survivor and the Weakest Link all patterned after popular T.V shows. At the end of each activity, the student body voted for whomever they wanted to continue.

“It was great having more guys involved in the pageant,” Jessica Boyko, ’03, said. “I enjoyed watching it progress from 15 guys to five. It was fun to see who would go on to the next day.”

The queen pageant took place on Oct. 17. Some of the events the candidates competed in included an obstacle course, a chugging challenge and a log-throwing contest. Dawn Steele, ’03, was declared the winner of the queen pageant and was also crowned Homecoming queen during half time of the football game against Farmersville.

“It was quite a shock and honor,” Steele said. “I think all the candidates deserved it. I had fun getting dressed up and getting to know the girls even more.”

That night Lisa Bolduc, ’03, was also crowned the senior princess.

“I think Ashley Knepper, ’03, deserves it more than I do because she is my best friend,” Bolduc, said. “It’s cool that I got a crown. I am really glad that Steele won queen because she is really outgoing and friendly.”

Many students attended the Homecoming game due to the variety of activities presented.

“The homecoming game was really awesome,” Brandon Cain, ’06, said. “I enjoyed watching the queens being crowned. It was also fun to be involved with the freshmen class float.”
