Homecoming wraps up for ’09

Posted

The floats have been dismantled and the final notes of the last song at the dance have faded away as this year’s Englewood High School homecoming celebration.

It was a busy week on all fronts. There were plenty of fun events, including the day when girls came dressed up like guys and vice versa.

On Sept. 30, roles were reversed again as girls took to the gridiron and boys became the cheerleaders for the annual powder puff football game.

As always, construction of each float was done in secret and the Viva Las Vegas theme provided a fertile field for imaginative minds. The result was an abundance of show girls, palm trees, casinos and even a special appearance by Elvis.

The parade made its way from Englewood Middle School to the high school. Friends, families, residents and alumni found good spots along the route to watch as, in keeping with tradition, the Pirates marching band led the way. The middle school band marched in the parade, joining floats from the high school, middle school, clubs and youth soccer association.

The biggest crowd of the season so far came to the Oct. 2 football game and, along with the game, there was the usual pageantry at halftime, with the introduction of the royalty from each of the school’s four classes. The activity culminated with the crowning of Chris Nelson and Jordin Higgs as this year’s homecoming king and queen.
