Knight Life - Page 5

Volleyball and football each had a game during Homecoming week. The Lady Knights volleyball team played PT Warriors on Tuesday, September 27th. The Lady Knights battled and played their best each set, but in the end lost in four sets. The Lady Knights said they felt they learned and grew from that game and enjoyed playing during Homecoming week. The Knights football team played North Central Texas Academy on Friday, September 30th. The Knights played a challenging game and fought until the end. Despite their loss (94-82), they felt proud of their perseverance in playing their best until the final buzzer.

On Friday, September 30th the High School Cheerleaders organized a Homecoming pep rally. At the pep rally the High School Cheerleaders, Dance Team, and Middle School Cheerleaders performed. The High School Volleyball and Football Teams were also introduced. The High School Cheerleaders also performed with the Elementary girls who attended their Mini Cheer Camp. The senior football players were also surprised when they were blindfolded, and told they were going to be kissed on the cheek by a cheerleader and had to guess which one. Instead, their mom’s smashed a whipped cream pie in their face. Needless to say, they were not expecting such a “sweet treat” (nor was Coach Berend).

The Alumni who attended the pep rally also introduced themselves and said their Class Yells. In addition, the Senior Homecoming Court was introduced. The girls nominated were: Sydney Chapa, Hannah Dohmen, Elizabeth Koch, Keeley Johnston, Sophie Luig, and Ryanne McKay. The boys elected were: James Brady, Clayton McElroy, Trevor Morath, Marc Schafer, Sam Ozier, and Skyler Whitten. The Homecoming Court also played a funny toilet paper game. The girls and boys had to work as a team and wrap themselves in three rolls of toilet paper. The girls won (oh yeah!)!

During halftime at the football game, the girls on the Homecoming Court were driven around the field in cars and escorted onto the field by their assigned nominee. In the end, Sydney Chapa and Clayton McElroy were crowned Homecoming King and Queen. Following the game, the High School Student Council hosted a Homecoming High School Dance. Friday, as well as the entire week of Homecoming, was filled with fun, forever memories with friends, and the continuation of NDCS Homecoming traditions.
