Showing black and gold spirit, the Mineral County High School Serpents celebrated Homecoming 2016 in true Serpent fashion.
A force to be reckoned with, the freshman class of MCHS would take first place in the float building contest, the juniors coming in second and third place was awarded to the sophomore class. Unfortunately, the seniors were unable to complete their float on time.
The Mr. MCHS contest brought out great completion that engaged the crowd. Sean McPeake was crowned “Mr. MCHS 2016”.
Friday a crowd gathered on Main Street, showing that even the wind and cold can’t stop Serpent pride. Cecil came out of hibernation to escort his team onto their field as well as the Lil’ Serpent football players and cheerleaders who admire the high school students.
Jordi Medlock and Brandon West would be crowned Mineral County Homecoming Queen and King under the Friday night lights with their court consisting of: Freshman prince and princess: Seth Bozzi and Kati Neff; Sophomore prince and princess: Bodie Oberhansli and Talina Hicks; Junior prince and princess: Cade Horn and Drianna Ditmer. Medlock and West were on field with their fellow senior classmates who also ran for royalty: Eddie Dunnett and Rachelle Jones; Kenny Johnson and Alexis Milks; Alfonso Castillo-Trujillo and Cheyenne Waggoner.
Though the Whittell Warriors beat the Serpents on their home turf, “Taste the Victory” will be remembered through the memories that homecoming makes.
