The suspense ended during halftime of the Oct. 18 football game, when Tyler Harris and Kyrie Schroeder were named Englewood High School’s 2013 king and queen.
Englewood’s marching band did a short performance at halftime before setting up to assist in the homecoming ceremonies.
Students who were homecoming royalty lined up. Members of the band’s color guard created a walkway lined with their flags and, as royalty names were announced, they came down the flag-lined walkway to the presentation area.
There were royalty representatives from each of the four classes. This year’s class representatives included:
Freshmen: Sydney Gonzales, Joe Hall, Karin Bader and Jacob Snyder.
Sophomores: Tori Harris, Jon Schroeder, Jacob Wyatt and Reagin Kirklin.
Juniors: Dante Perez, Dominque Daughtry, Josie Phillips and Justin Willson. Seniors: Kyrie Schroeder – Queen, Tyler Harris – King, Nate Medina and Lyndsey McNorton.
In keeping with tradition, the name of the king and queen remained secret until announced as the finale of the coronation ceremony.
Jonathan Fore, Englewood High School principal, did the honors, presenting the king the crown and the queen the tiara. The queen also got roses and a Pirates football helmet signed by all members of the team.
