Previous homecoming king, Nolan Newcomb, and queen, Kennedy Bass.
The king candidates were: Braden Biersner, Colbey Wadsworth, Devan Baldus, Ethan Lewis, and Tanner Schminke. They all waited with high hopes of being crowned this year’s king. It didn’t take long and after a few loud cheers from the crowd, the crown was placed on the head of Devan Baldus. “It’s pretty great. I wasn’t expecting to win because there’s a lot of other great guys out here. But we still have to come out later tonight and win the game and play hard,” said Baldus.
The queen candidates: Claire Anderson, Dianna Slight, Laura Anderson, Grace Krafcisin, and Mad Santi, then assumed their positions hopeful of being 2016 homecoming queen. Diana Slight was crowned the 2016 homecoming queen. “There’s so many nice people on the court that deserve it, but I guess it just means a lot that the student body gave me queen,” said Slight.
The king and queen will take to the dance floor tomorrow, Saturday, October 1 at the Homecoming Dance. Door’s open at 7:30 pm and the dance starts at 8:00 pm.
