No matter where you are coming home is always a sweet victoryHigh school memories, past and present
Last Friday proved to be one of the most exciting homecoming games proving that school spirit does give strength.
At half time the Vikings were down, but the marching band lead by Neil Proff and his student band directors and the fireworks display, kept the hopes of winning alive, and only added fuel to the already excited crowd.
Throughout most of the game, the Vikings were trailing the Arlington Eagles but the crowd’s spirit never wavered even in the last minutes of the game when there didn’t seem to be a possibility of winning.
From the stands, a group of young girls cheered loudly for the football team shouting “Go Vikings!”
Quinn Gamache was one of the girls in the stands shouting with frenzy for her school.
“Lake Stevens Viking’s rock and we’re going to win the homecoming game because we’re freaking awesome!” she said.
Jordan Young, another student, said, “We’re going to win in the next few minutes, and homecoming is going to be sweet.”
Everywhere you looked in the stands people were standing and cheering on the Vikings never giving thought to losing the game.
“I love our football team, and we’re going to win our homecoming game,” shouted Caytie McNanus from the stands.
Then at the top of her lungs, she shouted out, “I can’t wait to go to homecoming with my amazing date Beau!”
This year, the homecoming dance took place at the new Cavelero Mid High on Saturday night.
Many of the students came out that evening dressed looking like young adults ready to have a good time.
Some had hoarse voices from shouting at the homecoming game the night before, but all were out that night to celebrate their victory, and be someplace they wanted to be, amongst friends, and in a town they could always come home to and call home.
