Students Enjoy Homecoming Week

Homecoming Week was celebrated early this year. Homecoming Week was September 4-8. On Monday, seniors "painted the street" observing a longtime SFCHS tradition. There was no school on Monday due to the Labor Day weekend.

On Tuesday, students dressed up for "70's Day (Hippie Day)" and many were to be found in throwback costumes. The high school volleyball team traveled to Weskan and defeated the Lady Coyotes in both the varsity and junior varsity matches.

Wednesday was "Beach Day" and many students dressed in casual beach attire and looked very comfortable in their shorts and flip-flops.

Thursday was "Volleyball Appreciation Day" and students dressed-up and supported the volleyball teams in their matches against Rawlins County and Wauneta-Palisade. On Thursday evening the annual homecoming bonfire was held east of the practice field. An ice cream social sponsored by First National Bank was enjoyed by many after the bonfire.

Friday was "Green and Gold Day," and students could be found supporting the Indians by dressing in school colors. The high school volleyball and football players visited the Grade School and enjoyed eating and visiting with the younger students. On Friday afternoon, the Homecoming Parade was held at 2:30 p.m. After the parade, the Homecoming Pep Assembly was held in the High School Gymnasium where the homecoming candidates were introduced. Queen candidates were Reagan Beims, daughter of Jeff and Leslie Beims; Hanna Bracelin, daughter of Chris Bracelin and Jill Bracelin; Emileigh Dinkel, daughter of Randy and Susan Dinkel; Jylian Laten, daughter of Jesse and Lynn Laten; and Madison Tice, daughter of Derek and Heidi Tice.

After the assembly students were dismissed early.

On Friday evening the Indians defeated the Triplains-Brewster Titans in the Homecoming football game. The game was over at halftime due to the 45-point rule in Kansas high school football. The Indians won 56-0. During the halftime ceremony, Madison Tice was crowned as 2017 homecoming queen. The homecoming king was Tate Busse.

On Saturday, the volleyball team competed in the Gove Classic Volleyball Tournament placing 2nd winning four of five matches during the day.

The Homecoming Dance will be held on Saturday, September 16, in the High School Cafeteria from 8:00 - 11:30 p.m.
