Homecoming comes again

Even though MCHS homecoming was scheduled for September 18, it only recently took place on October 2. Due to the thunderstorm on the night of the original homecoming, the parade and football game had to be postponed until a later date. Luckily, the football team’s, “Senior Night” game fell on the date of October 2 as well as the rescheduled parade.
The parade, full of candidates, class floats, the fire department, and floats from multiple MCAS schools walked from Elston Middle School to Ames football field. Because the original homecoming game against Merrillville High School was canceled, it was just moved to the next day. For senior night, MCHS was up against the Portage Indians and everyone knew it was going to be a close one. After losing at halftime, the wolves rallied to pull together a comeback win. With less than a minute left, the wolves scored to take the lead and then defended until the time on the clock expired.
But, the football game was not the only part of, “Homecoming Friday.” Two other major components of homecoming was the crowning of the homecoming queen and the awarding of the spirit stick. The homecoming queen, decided by votes from the student body, was Erica Zolvinski and was escorted by Hunter Williams. For the first time since spirit week was created, the freshman class of 2019 won spirit week and has the spirit stick to prove it. With a good win from the football team, another night in the wolves’ student section, a new homecoming queen, and a class to win spirit week, homecoming has now ended.
