Haywood Junior High celebrates Homecoming 2010

HJH hosts Crestview MS for homecoming

The HJH Warriors hosted Crestview Middle School for homecoming on September 7. The Warriors’ offense posted good numbers, but the Chargers couldn’t be controlled by the Warriors defense. Overall, there were five lead changes in one of the most competitive games of the season. Malik Walker led the rushing attack as he carried the ball for 146 yards and three touchdowns. Martravious Washington contributed with three catches for 28 yards, and Nathan Lilly had a 2-point conversion catch. The Warriors lost 34 to 22 in a well-fought game.

Everyone at Haywood Junior High Homecoming week was celebrated with three spirit days where the students dressed up on Thursday like a nerd, Friday tacky, and Tuesday in red and blue for spirit points.

The students also participated in a banner contest. At the pep rally, the eighth graders won first place in the dress up contest with 430 participants.  The seventh and eighth graders tied for points from the banner contest. Mrs. Waddell’s room won first place, Mrs. Youngman’s room second place and Mrs. Spain’s room third place. The eighth graders won the most points for their enthusiastic cheering at the pep rally, and won the spirit stick for the most spirited class overall.

Also at the pep rally, the homecoming court was introduced. There were five seventh-grade candidates and five eighth-grade candidates. Ragan Avant was escorted by Nathan Yoder, Idalias Flagg was escorted by David Johnson, Mireya Pulido was escorted by Ethan Riddle, Abbey Morris was escorted by Dylan Simmons, and Kierston Emerson was escorted by Bo Gillespie. The seventh graders included Hannah Stanley escorted by Nathan Lily, Gracie Sills escorted by Drake Hooper, Mary Catherine Currie escorted by Cullen Kirk, Kaila Crew escorted by Thomas King, and McKenzie Scott escorted by Christian Hooser. At the game the two queens were crowned. The seventh-grade queen was McKenzie Scott. Abbey Morris was crowned the eighth-grade queen. Even though the Warriors lost the game, it was a night full of celebration.
