Lowry royalty crowning took place during halftime of the football game on Friday, October 9. The dance team and cheerleaders filed onto the field to welcome the royalty candidates.
Kali Gerhard, DeeAnna Pasquale, and Shaynee Monchamp presented the flags on horseback before the grand marshal Mrs. Corrine James was escorted onto the field by her husband with AC/DC’s “TNT” playing.
“It’s a great honor,” said James in regard to receiving the title.
The candidates were then driven onto the field in trucks provided by Delong Ford. Gerardo Covarrubias and Rachael Studebaker were the first to be presented followed by Adam Gray and Ashlee Lee, and finally Terrell Messerly and Robyn Wadleigh.
Mrs. Grady announced Gerardo Covarrubias and Rachael Studebaker as the winners. Former king Derrick Macliz and student body president Andrea Vaca crowned the couple.
Both winners expressed how happy they were at being selected for the honor.
When asked what he will miss the most about Lowry, Covarrubias said, “Posting up in the hallway with my friends, the school dances, but most importantly, my mom.”
He has participated in both basketball and soccer.
Studebaker has been involved in Varsity Dance Team, National Honor Society, and Art Club. Her plans include studying art in college.
Unfortunately, the events were marred by an accident involving one of the flag bearers.
While riding on the field the horse ridden by Gerhard seemed to lose its footing causing both rider and horse to tumble to the ground.
Gerhard was treated on the field. Further details were unavailable at press time.
