Satanta Winter Homecoming 2019

By Lizete Olivas


At Satanta High School, a big part of the Winter Homecoming Week is Spirit Week. The cheerleaders, who are in charge of the Winter Homecoming festivities, post signs around school advertising the Spirit Week days. This year Spirit Week started on February 4 and ended on February 8.

Monday was “Meme Day,” and students, staff, and teachers dressed as their favorite Internet memes; Tuesday was “TV Day,” and participants chose to dress as their favorite television character; Wednesday was “Wack Wednesday,” and the halls were filled with strange outfits that disappeared before the arrival of the afternoon career fair. Thursday was “Throwback Thursday,” and many chose to dress as they did during their younger days. Friday was “Dress to Impress,” and there were many classy ensembles that day.

At the Homecoming basketball games, held on February 8, the Lady Indians downed the Ashland Bluejays by a wide margin while the boys’ team narrowly lost their game. Following the boys’ game the coronation ceremony was held in the new gym. Following Satanta tradition, the freshman class, sophomore class, and junior classes all elected one boy and one girl to be part of the Homecoming court while the senior class provided three queen candidates and three king candidates. These students included Seniors: Tanna Anderson and Adan Gutierrez; Lizahi Quinonez-Salas and Jacob Loewen; and Lizete Olivas and Gabriel Salas; Juniors: Sydney McKinney and Andy Heimerich; Sophomores: Maddison Jaso and Angel Manriquez; and Freshmen: Alba Najera and Gabriel Mendoza. Avery Dunn served as flower girl, and Macklin Alexander served as crown bearer. After all the court members and candidates were announced, the King and Queen were named. The Winter Homecoming King was Gabriel Salas, and the Queen was Lizahi Quinonez-Salas. The night ended with a dance in the cafeteria.
