Homecoming festivities start this week

Hugoton High School will host their 2018 Winter Homecoming festivities all week. The King will be crowned Wednesday, January 31 during the pep rally in the HHS West Gym, starting at 3:00 p.m. King candidates include seniors Dawson Burnett, Manny Mendoza and Eric Perry.

The Homecoming Queen will be crowned during halftime of the varsity boys’ game Friday evening, February 2. The game starts at 8:00 p.m. Queen candidates are seniors Jayden Korf, Abigail Marioni and Skyelynn Muñoz. Attendants are junior Hannah Archuleta, sophomore Johanna Bojorquez and freshman Molly McClure. The Homecoming semi-formal dance will be in the high school cafeteria Saturday, February 3 from 8:30 to 11:30 p.m.

Due to the short week – no school Thursday or Friday – there will be only three Spirit Days, so make sure to dress up! This year’s theme is the Olympics.

High School and Middle School Spirit Days are as follows:
Monday – Represent a country for the Olympics
Tuesday – Team Tuesday (represent your HHS / HMS team, your Rec team, Team Disney, etc.)
Wednesday – Represent an Olympic sport

Elementary and ECDC Spirit Days are as follows:
Monday – Red, White & Blue Day
Tuesday – Team Day
Wednesday – Sport Day

So make sure to get all your Eagle apparel ready for next Friday’s Homecoming games against the Goodland Cowboys and Cowgirls. Both girls’ and boys’ JV will kick off the evening of Eagle basketball at 4:45 p.m., followed by the girls’ varsity and boys’ C team at 6:30 p.m., then finally the boys’ varsity and girls’ C games at 8:00 p.m.
