Guest Opinion: Freshman perspective on RHS HoCo

MEEKER I This year, Rangely Jr./Sr. High School, Parkview Elementary and the Early Education Center all had a fun, busy, crazy Homecoming week filled with activities, sports games and dress-up days. For Homecoming, the whole community came together to give the students and residents of Rangely a week to remember.

For the dress-up days, Monday was Mummy Monday, where students were supposed to dress up like they were from the living dead. Most people wore pajamas on this day, but some people went all out and dressed like mummies or zombies. On Tuesday, students were told to wear a terrible costume, or to mismatch all their clothes. Wednesday was orange day, where everyone wore any orange piece of clothing, or they wore their Isabella T-shirts. On Thursday, everyone wore their new homecoming shirts. 

To start the activities, Thursday a chili dinner was held at RHS. After the dinner was the parade, going from the fire hall to the Rec Center. The pep rally consisted of showing the sports teams and the names of the players, the band playing, and the royalty doing their dances. Following the pep rally was the annual bonfire. Friday was the Homecoming football and volleyball games. For volleyball, Rangely played the Soroco Rams, and unfortunately lost. For the football game, the Panthers played the Gilpin County Eagles, and won 68-18. At halftime, all the freshman, sophomore, junior and senior Homecoming attendants, king and queen were announced. 

The attendants for the freshman were Lilly Noel and Izaiah Moody. For sophomores, it was Landon Williams and Eva Jost. Junior attendants were Isabelle Gilbert and Luis Quintana. Senior attendants were Norrah Patch being escorted by Alex Sanchez, Hayley Burr being escorted by Timothy Scoggins, and Adelynn Halcomb being escorted by Keihlin Myers. The Homecoming king and queen this year were Hayley Burr and Timothy Scoggins. All together it was a super fun night and winning against the Eagles made it even better.

Saturday night from 9-11:30 p.m. was the official Homecoming dance for 2021. It was at The Gathering Place and I think everyone had a great time. There was tons of great music, food, and people. Completely, the entire week was a very memorable time and it was so much fun for all of the students and residents of Rangely.
