Ann Rutherford, the Student Council Association sponsor at Cave Spring High School, sends us this report on homecoming at the school:
Homecoming 2008: The Tradition Continues at CSHS
The start of the 2008-2009 Cave Spring High School year was marked by spirit, competition, dance, and fun, all of which was part of the traditional Homecoming Week. The SCA, which was given the task of planning and organizing the Homecoming Dance, was the force behind the numerous events and activities accompanying Spirit Week.
During the week of October 6-10, many participated in the five-themed costume days of the week. Monday, which was dubbed Costume Day, was the most popular of the five days with students and teachers dressing up as the Wizard of Oz cast, the Incredibles, and bunches of bananas. The annual Powder Puff Game held between the junior and senior girls, where the senior girls won 12-8 in a grueling matchup, was paired with Hip Hop Day on Tuesday. Wednesday was assigned Cowboys and Indians Day as participants traded sneakers for cowboy boots and moccasins while one pet donned a cowgirl costume. Many showed their allegiance to their college of choice as College Day was held on Thursday. A new tradition began that Thursday as the SCA held the first Cookout While You Dec Out to feed the hard-working students and teachers as classes decorated their hallways in special themes. Finally, Friday came as the entire school celebrated Blackout Day and sported the popular Blackout shirts that sold out again in less than a week. To go along with another year of Blackout, the SCA created Back in Black during a retreat this past summer.
After school had ended the decorated hallways were stripped for the parade. Beginning at 6:00 pm, each class, the homecoming court, clubs, and other organizations made their way down Chaparral and Merriman toward Dwight Bogel Stadium to see the Knights take on the Blacksburg Bears.
Despite a loss at home, the Knights kept the spirit going as the 2008 Homecoming Court was announced. The freshman representatives are Meredith Young and Sydney Glassman, the sophomore representatives are Ashley Funk and Robyn Siner the junior representatives are Kayla Funk, Kristen Heilesen and Emily Lawrence, and the senior representaties are Bryan Wright, Gerald Delotto, Greg Mackey, Jordan Reid, Sam Snyder, Lauren Bosche. This year’s prince and princess are Taylor Woodrum and Tatum Tyler and the king and queen are Tom Murphy and Kim Kufel.
The Homecoming Dance was held on Saturday night with the theme Back in Black- Tie with about 600+ students walking a red carpet and posing in front of special paparazzi. It was the perfect end to an amazing Homecoming Week celebration at Cave Spring High School.
