RHS kicks off homecoming week


RHS’s 2017 homecoming court

Caitlin Michael, Managing Editor

Friday, Sep. 29, was the first pep rally to start Homecoming 2017. The event began with the marching band playing a range of songs and getting everyone on their feet to dance along. Next, the varsity cheer team performed, as did the dance team. Fall sports teams were presented and pumped up the crowd, and then the games began.
With freshmen wearing white, sophomores wearing black, juniors wearing red, and seniors wearing all three, the four grades competed in games, including a favorite, ‘Box Car Race’. This game involved the smallest person in your grade and two strong athletes. The small person gets into a cardboard box and the other two pull them around the gym, racing another grade for top dog. A huge hit with students and leading to cheers and gasps, seniors won in the final round.
After the games, we found out what we have all been waiting for, the homecoming court. This year’s nominees are: Austin Lorentzen with Miranda Rumfelt, Chris Calloway with Amanda Piekutowski, Dhamon Riley with Chloe Vincent, Jacoby Dale with Candice Smith, Josh Zuniga with Kaitlyn Kotelniski, LeVonte Harris with Kiyah Mann, Phillip Longueiul with Sam Averitt, and Zane Alexander with Haleigh Darden.
“Everyone who made court deserved it so much and I am proud of all of them,” junior Brooklynn Knox said.
Make sure to vote for who you want to win king and queen and remember that you can only vote once. Voting will take place on Wednesday, Oct 4 during brick hour. The announcement of top royalty will take place during the home football game at halftime on Saturday, Oct. 7.
“It was a really exciting moment. I never thought I would be on court. This week is gonna be really fun,” Piekutowski said.
