The parade ended at Conneaut’s SPARC (Social Place for Athletics and Community) complex for the football game. The highlight of the evening was the crowning of Alyssa Andes as Conneaut High School Homecoming Queen. Friday night’s activities ended with a tough fought double-overtime loss to Gilmour Academy.
On Saturday, the long awaited Homecoming Dance took place. The dance had a masquerade theme; everyone at the dance received a free mask or hat. The dance also had a photo booth as a new feature where students could pose with their friends with a variety of props.
The sophomore class put on the dance. Class secretary Carly Schreiber was very active in the preparations. “There’s a lot of work that went into making everything for it,” she said. “People may think it’s nothing, but it’s hard to balance out getting things ready for the dance, school work and then other school activities. But all the work we put into the dance was well worth it.”
The dance went from 8 to 11 p.m. in the CHS cafeteria. Homecoming Queen Alyssa Andes shared her favorite part of this cherished night. “I would have to say the senior dance was my favorite. It was nice to see our class come together and share one more memory at our final Homecoming at CHS,” she said. The seniors gathered together in a giant circle on the stage and sang to Green Day’s “Good Riddance.” They ended with a final senior class cheer.
Homecoming was truly a memorable time for all the students of Conneaut High School.
