Homecoming week is full of traditions and new activities. An oldie but goodie is the traditional Homecoming bonfire which took place in the overflow parking lot. New activities added to the evening of student fun included Candidate Games. Candidates participated in a variety of games ranging from, Pudding Pictionary, Sundae Building, and Crack-the-Egg games. Kennedy Stevenson, jr., had the idea of including Candidate Games into our Homecoming Week. “I thought adding the Candidate Games into our Homecoming week would be a great opportunity to show Mustang spirit and have a good time,” said Stevenson.
Following the games, students attended the pep rally where the bonfire was lit. The band played and senior football mothers along with cheerleaders, led the student body in cheers. “Getting to cheer at the bonfire was a new experience and I think the student body had a great time,” said Maddy Vermetten, fr. The traditional tug-of-war contest was held between classes to see who had the most “Mustang Strength.” After multiple battles between classes, the sophomores came out on top winning the contest. Concluding the evening, senior football players’, Brady Trimble, Jermey Reed, and Payden Yungeberg thanked everyone for their support of the football team and encouraged them to come to the home game.
