2015 Homecoming Court



On Friday, Sept. 25 senior Ling Ling Zhu was crowned the 2015 Homecoming Queen during halftime of the varsity football game. The princesses walked out onto the field with a family member of their choice and one of the four seniors, Zhu, was crowned based on the amount of votes she received. She was crowned by Principle Travis Howard.
Voting for the Homecoming court kicked off the spirit week festivities that lead up to the homecoming dance. Every year a freshman, sophomore, junior and senior are chosen by their peers to sport a tiara and sash and represent their class throughout the week. This year’s court was made up of freshman Jazmin Chavez, sophomore Hannah Rossback, junior Cassidy Cantrell and seniors Mackenzie Allison, Isabel Groth, Kaylee Krajcir, and Zhu. Many of the princesses see the nomination as a positive opportunity.

“It felt like a big compliment to me that out of all the other girls in my class they chose me,” Chavez said.

After being selected, the seven princesses made frequent appearances throughout the week leading up to the dance. For example, during the homecoming pep assembly the princesses chose a guy from their class to escort them out onto the field in front of the student body. Krajcir, who has also been a princess as a junior, was pleasantly surprised to be named senior princess.

“I was shocked because I was princess last year and wasn’t expecting it this year, but also excited,” Krajcir said.
