Montgomery Locals, Sept. 19, 2018
The stands were packed for the Homecoming Game and Ceremony last Friday night at the football field. The game against Sayre ended triumphantly with a score of 26-12. The marching band as well as the cheerleaders gave performances to be proud of. I love the enthusiasm that our athletes, musicians, and cheerleaders have for our town and their energy is contagious. If you haven’t been to a game this year, come out and support our young people!
The traditional Homecoming Ceremony was held at halftime. Katie Forrestal was named as the 2018 Homecoming Queen, and her crown was presented by last year’s queen, Grace Bopp. Members of the Senior Court were Alexys Erb, Kaitlyn McCarty, Emily Snyder, and Abigail Stryker. The Eleventh Grade Representative was Nita Imeri. The Sophomore Representative was Katelyn Taylor. The 2018 Homecoming Princess is Cortney Smith, who was crowned by last year’s princess, McKenzie Heasley. Members of the Freshman Court were Jenna Waring and Kylee Young.
The Homecoming Dance was held on Saturday night, and senior Rhyle Strausbaugh was named as the Homecoming King and freshman Tanner Springman was the Homecoming Prince. Congratulations to all the members of the 2018 Homecoming Court.
