This month Lowry Leadership class has sponsored many of the events that took place in this year’s Homecoming. Throughout the week there were, at lunch, lunchtime activities, or games in which students could earn points for their class. There were also dress-up days all through the week.
On Monday, October 16 the event put on by Leadership was He-Man Volleyball. An activity in which boys from each class competed in a volleyball tournament. The dress-up day for Monday was color war day. Each class wore their own color. Girls Golf was also competing in Genoa Lakes for the State tournament.
On Tuesday, October 17 Girls Golf was still at State and Girls and Boys Varsity Soccer was competing in Spring Creek. Boys JV Soccer played Spring Creek at home and Freshman and JV Volleyball competed against McDermitt at home. The dress-up day for Tuesday was Twin Day. Students paired up and dressed alike.
On Wednesday, October 18 Leadership hosted the Powder-Puff Football game. Freshmen and Seniors teamed up again the Sophomores and Juniors for a game of flag football. The dress-up day for Wednesday was Pajama Day, students just arose from bed and came as they were.
Thursday started out to be a sticky situation. The halls were crowded Thursday morning with students trying their best to look good in their best duct tape outfit for Duct Tape Day. The lunchtime activity showed who really wanted to defy gravity. “Stick ‘em up!” was a huge hit. The school day wrapped up with a Freshman Football game, whose great attempts didn’t seem to gain them a defeat. After the tough game students had a great opportunity to kick back, relax, and watch a movie. High School students filed into the auditorium to watch the movie Miracle.
Once you saw the halls filled with students in blue and gold, you knew it had to be Blue and Gold day. An amazing pep assembly put on
By Lowry Leadership kept spirits high for the night’s game. The lunchtime activity kept students on their toes, oh and also their butts, during musical chairs. The Junior Varsity Football Game kicked off the evening’s events. Lowry played the Fernley Vaqueros. There, the class posters were displayed. Soon after the Varsity team took the field. Even though we had a very close game, we still couldn’t quite pull through.
Half time was an event to be watched. First was the announcement of this years’ Grand Marshal. This award was given to Mrs. Carmen Goicoechea, who has donated many hours to help Lowry High School. After that was the presentation of the Homecoming Court. Heather Boni and Austin Mayo came through and won the titles of Homecoming Queen and King.
No matter who you asked, most of the school’s students just couldn’t stop talking about Saturday’s dance. Since the games were on a Friday this year, all the girls had the whole day to primp. Starting at 8:30 p.m., the dance had a good start. All of the students gettin’ down loved the projection screen that played videos and clips from throughout the week. Homecoming is one time in the school year where students are bound to have fun. This year was a success.
