Homecoming spirit running high at CHS

By Buck Traxler, I-O Editor
   You only thought the parties in Conrad were over. Not!
   The 100-year celebration ended and Homecoming at Conrad High School picked up the slack on Monday.
   They will be having a series of little events all week, leading up to the Pep Rally in the new gym Saturday morning, athletic game on Saturday and a huge dance the same evening.
   Conrad is just Rockin’.
   Monday began the week with Redneck Day with staff and students dressing for a “down home” homecoming.
   On Tuesday, if you were by the school, you may have seen double as students took to “Twin Day”  with the idea of having their opponents seeing double.
   Wednesday was a “Crazy Color Day” with students encouraged to show off colors and school pride.
   Seniors dressed up in blue, Juniors took to wearing yellow, Sophomores came attired in Green and Freshmen wore black.
   Thursday the students had a Theme Day, such as Halloween, the 4th of July, Christmas or New Year’s and dress for the occasion.    This day would require some imagination by the students.
   Friday was a little more traditional, being Red and White Day, the school’s colors. At 7 p.m. the Spirit Night Bonfire will be held at the practice field.
   Saturday morning the school floats will be showing up at CHS and at 9 a.m. the Pep Assembly will take place, TA-DA, in the new gym.
   There will special skits put on, and the Homecoming King and Queen and their court will be announced.
   This year the senior class candidates of Brandon Philipps and Jayleen Harris.
   The junior class candidates for this year are Rhett Orcutt and Bethany Grubb.
   The sophomore class candidates are Brach Newmiller and Whitney Bliss.
   The freshman class candidates are Nate Gage and Samantha Fagan.
   Following the Pep Assembly, the high school parade begins as close to 10 a.m. as possible. If you didn’t come to the Pep Rally at the gym, you can see the King and Queen in the parade and if you still, for some reason, missed that, they will be announced during the halftime at the football game along with float, hall and spirit winners.
   This year the Cowboys and the Choteau Bulldogs will tango on the grass with the kickoff slated for 1 p.m. It is the Cowboys last home game of the season.
   Right after the game the Booster Club will be hosting a barbecue in front of the CHS commons.
   The Cowgirl volleyball team, who are ranked number three, 6-3 in the conference play and 6-4 overall, will host the Cut Bank Lady Wolves who are number two in the conference with a 6-2 record, 7-2 overall.
   There should be some excellent court action to take in with the sub-varsity action starting about 4:15 p.m.
   The Homecoming dance will begin at 9 p.m. and go to midnight.
   Activity in Conrad should taper down a little, but about next weekend…..
