It is always great to have a home football game under the Friday night lights. This home football game gets even better when it is the homecoming game. Homecoming week brings many fun festivities. Girls show they are good at football, while the guys battle it out at volleyball. Also, princesses compete to see who gets crowned “Homecoming Queen.” Here is an overview of all the joys that occurred during homecoming week.

 

Dress-up Days

 

Homecoming week this year provided some fun ways to show some school spirit. Dress up days included Hat Day, Camo Day, Pajama Day, Throwback Thursday, and Black and Gold day. Several students went all out for Throwback Thursday, and it was something to see. Hopefully, those of you who wore pajamas during school didn’t fall asleep during class.

 

Powder-puff Football and Boys’ Volleyball

 

For the first time in the history of powder-puff at Delphi, the seniors were beaten in volleyball. The juniors were able to pull out the upset during the championship game. Third place went to the sophomores and last place went to the freshmen. After a short walk to Berto Field, the flag football games commenced. The seniors were able to win again, making it their fourth time winning the flag football tournament. The sophomores received second, juniors got third and freshman got last.

 

Homecoming Court

 

One of the most anticipated events during homecoming week is the selection of the homecoming court. A total of 14 students were selected. This included freshmen Megan Kelly and Jaden Long, sophomores Lillie Smith and Gabe Wilson, and juniors Peyton Resler and Isaac Salinas. Senior princesses were Taylor Kantz, Holly Cosgray, Tori Nacke, and Taylor Bartlett; and senior princes were Dacota Shockley, Adam Rider, Jared Moudy, and Jacob Bowlin. The Homecoming Queen, which was chosen at the Homecoming game, was Holly Cosgray. The Homecoming King, which was chosen at the Homecoming Dance, was Jared Moudy.

 

Class Shopping Carts

 

This year’s class competition was a shopping cart decorating contest. The seniors took first place with Riley Saul shooting a nerf gun at fellow seniors dressed as bison leaping around in front of him.  The sophomore class received second with their Thanksgiving feast featuring bison as the main course. Next, the juniors placed third with their very unique shopping cart decorations that left most onlookers clueless. It was basically an alien on some beach on another planet. It was as outlandish as it sounds. Finally, the freshmen came in last place with their version of hunting down bison, but they didn’t pull it off as well as the seniors.

 

Homecoming Game

 

The football team was able to pull out a win to cap off the festivities of the week. The game was close the entire night, keeping everyone in suspense until the final quarter. In the end, Delphi was able to pull out a win by one point, with a final score of 28-27. For more details, see Joe Perry’s article “Oracles grab homecoming win.”

 

In conclusion, school weeks don’t come much better than they do in homecoming week. From exhilarating football games, to decorating shopping carts, homecoming is a time that everybody can enjoy.
