The Bulldogs ended the Thriller Homecoming week off with a win, making them 3-0. AHS students and staff had a fun time celebrating many wins throughout the week as well. Aliyah Buscher was one of the many members who cheered on the Bulldogs on Homecoming night and she said, “Always gotta yell a little louder for the freshmen in the back!”
The 2019 AHS Homecoming king was Isaac Schonert and his queen was Ashlin Young. They were crowned at the pep rally and coronation ceremony on Friday, September 13th. Other court members include Elliot Berkland, Garrett Schmidt, Gavin Meints, Wyatt Wegener, Sadie Besch, Elyse Gabor, Aliyah Buscher, and Kameryn Etherington.
You could say the classes and grades competed well and had a good week, but the seniors swept all events. The senior class won in hallway decorating, class billboard, and powderpuff football. In muscle volleyball they took first and second place. The junior class got second in their hallway decoration and class billboard. They took third in muscle volleyball and fourth in powderpuff football. Sophomores took third in class billboard, hallway decorating, fourth in muscle volleyball, and third in powderpuff football. The freshman class received fourth in hallway decorating, class billboard, and third in powderpuff football.
The parade was also a great turn out and always a fun time. The parade highlighted all of the elementary school students, the middle school banners, the high school billboards, the fall sports teams, the high school band, and many more activities throughout the Algona schools!
For the football game, the Bulldogs took on the Emmetsburg E’Hawks and came away with a 34-14 win! The game was exciting, even getting cannon shots by the Iowa National Guard as extra excitement for every Bulldog touchdown.
After the win on Friday night, everyone was welcomed to celebrate the Homecoming win in the teachers’ parking lot party for music, games, and conversation.
As Homecoming came to an end, everyone is looking forward to next year and looking forward to who the 2020 Homecoming winners will be.
