On October 16, All Saints kicked off a week of homecoming fun that culminated with a big win for our football team against Amarillo’s Holy Cross and the crowning of the 2017 Homecoming Queen and King.
Queen Candidates included Anna Arnett, Kate Borthwick, Natalie Chaudhuri, Sarah Going, Tatum Harper, Whitney Lawson, Lily McKay, Ava Moran, Ally Muzyka, Taylor Renfroe, Alexandra Shropshire, and Mallory Staggs. King Candidates included Joseph Bayouth, Colten Cannon, Sajan Dihenia, Austin Hickle, Raymond Rider, and Luke Stuart.
Friday’s festivities continued with a tailgate before the football game. The lines were long, but well worth the wait for a taste of former parent Monty Bowman’s famous brisket and pulled pork wraps. It sure was fun to see Headmaster Bruce Latta and his wife, Emily, along with their girls roll up their sleeves and work together to cover the concession stand during the busiest part of the night. Way to go, Lattas!
The Varsity Football team captured a big win over Amarillo’s Holy Cross Academy with a score of 48-0. In the midst of all of the excitement, the cheer and dance squads put on a great show and entertained the crowd with school spirit and Patriot Pride!
The highlight of the evening was the announcement of our 2017 Homecoming Queen, Lily McKay. Lily is the daughter of Chaplain Paige and Mike McKay.
Homecoming week concluded with a “007” themed high school dance. Near the end of the evening, Austin Hickle was crowned our 2017 Homecoming King. Austin is the son of Michele and Dr. Randy Hickle. Like Lily, Austin joined All Saints 14 years ago.
Homecoming week was a blast, and wouldn’t have been possible without the support of the Patriots, current and past, who came to participate in the fun. Thank you, All Saints community, for your continued support — we can’t wait to see you at Homecoming 2018!
