The Adams County Record Wednesday, September 26, 2012 Page 11 BY LAURA PERKINS & DALE FISK Youthful exuberance, crazy costumes and age- old traditions were all part of a wild Homecoming week at Council High School. Students e.nthusiastically dove into activities such as "car stuffing'; class volleyball, and powder- puff football. The theme this year was "Mutilate the Mustangs!" The hallways of the high school were skillfully decorated in school colors of red, black, Homecoming spirit 2012 and white. Dress up days started off the week with "Hippie Day;' followed by "Color Wars;' "Super Hero Day;' and ended with "Spirit Day" on Thursday. The Homecoming Royalty Court coronation occurred at Tuesday night's vol- leyball game against Tri- Valley. Jordan Rosengrant was crowned Homecoming King, and Taylor Cole was crowned Homecoming Queen. Sierra Shankel was princess, with Nate Henderson as her escort. The lower grades also chose a- princess and escort: 7th Morgan Shumway and Bonner Paradis; 8th - Mickala Mathews and J. T. Mahon; 9th - Abby Roundtree and Kaine Kieser; 10th - Lacie Anderson and Dakota Shankel; llth - Brittany Armistead and Alex Rotter. The term "powderpuff" - from the practice of delicately powdering a lady's face - is an oxymoron when it comes to modern-day female athletes facing off against each other on the gridiron. In the traditional Homecoming powderpuff football game, these girls meant business, and even though it was a friendly game of flag football without the padding that their male counterparts wear, the lively competition in a spirited game of volleyball, and the faculty won, as they usually do. The CHS Cheerleaders led the pep rally. The volleyball coach, Amy Shumway, and the football coach, Dan Shumway, both gave pep talks to their teams and encouraged everyone to between freshman team and the junior/sophomore team got downright physical at times. The senior/freshmen team won 38 to 6. As they do every year, the faculty took on the Seniors the senior/ come to the games and cheer. The pep rally game was a lot of fun to watch. The girls had to run to the other side of the gym and dress in football pads and helmet, and the boys had to race down and dress in a cheerleader skirt and sweater. The boys enjoyed wearing the skirts and kept them on during the rest of the pep rally, even joining the girls on the floor for a final cheer. The parade following the pep rally was short but full of spirit. After a week-long build up, the Lumberjacks win in the Homecoming football game against Horseshoe Bend brought an especially joyous celebration and a satisfying culmination to the festivities.
