The 2015 McClain High School homecoming court has been announced, and along with homecoming comes the activities leading up to Friday’s game and Saturday’s dance.
The 2015 queen is Casandra Brooks and her court is first attendant Madison Foltz, second attendant Casey Brigner, senior attendant Anna Ehlers, junior attendant Veronica Olaker, sophomore attendant Hannah Smith and freshman attendant Emily Jones.
For the first time ever at McClain, the student council elected to have a homecoming king with Brazilian exchange student Vinicius Marcelino voted to hold that title.
The king and queen candidates were introduced last week during a student assembly. Each candidate answered a McClain question, a personal question, and three rapid-fire questions. The whole student body then cast votes on who would be crowned king and queen.
The week leading up to homecoming is known as Spirit Week and this year’s themes are: Monday – Color War with freshmen wearing green, sophomores wearing orange, juniors wearing baby blue, and seniors wearing pink; Tuesday – Twin Day; Wednesday – Tacky Red Carpet Day; Thursday – Throwback Thursday to the ‘20s to the‘80s; and Friday – Purple and Gold Day.
Homecoming activities begin Thursday with McClain’s Snake Dance at 7 p.m. The announcement of the homecoming court will take place Friday at 6:55 p.m. at the McClain Athletic Field just prior to the Tigers taking on the Miami Trace Panthers in a South Central Ohio League game at 7:30 p.m. Lastly, the McClain Homecoming Dance will be held on Saturday at 8 p.m.
