Last year, Hana Holtz was crowned queen for Homecoming.

Coronation, along with an altered pep-rally, will occur after the JV Football game on the Monday of Homecoming week. It is expected to start around 8 p.m. and last 30-45 minutes with the pep rally. “We’re going to kickstart the Homecoming week with the JV football game,” said principal Heather McKay. The coronation is expected to occur around 8 p.m. at the Trojan Bowl with candidates spaced out in a safe and distanced manner. Activities director Andrew Mitchell said, “We can stay outside and keep our social distancing.” Games that have been done in the past, such as dodgeball and volleyball, that were once a competition between the grades are now unlikely to take place.

While there have not been firm plans, it is expected that the event will be hosted on the asphalt to prevent the need of setting up a stage. “People are encouraged to go to this because we’re going to be doing the Battle Cry,” said student council president Craig Becker. For the pep rally, cheerleaders have a set of regulations to maintain safety during these times, removing the traditional moment when football players would interact with the cheer team to perform a stunt.  

Queen candidates are Anna Weiser, Haley Rasmussen, Tessa Grooms, Jenna Pelzer, Caroline Pellett, Alyssa Derby, Sydney Sanny, and Grace Barkley. King candidates are Zane Vance, Grant Sturm, Joe Weaver, Craig Becker, Keagan Garcia, Steele McLaren, Gunner Kirchoff, and Collin Mullinex. Candidates are still expected to walk out with their parents as normal and sit in pairs in a properly distanced manner. The crowning itself will otherwise take place as usual.
