The seniors took the spirit stick for the first time in three years.

Running, jumping and screaming seniors unified in excitement.

“It felt really good to finally win the spirit stick because I felt we got what we deserved,” said Carly Bly.

The seniors worked hard during homecoming week for their win, which included hallway decorations and dressing up for spirit days. Many students stayed after school to help, and their effort shows throughout the hallway design and execution.

Kaity Leherr stayed after school to work on the hallway each week, participated in spirit days, went to the homecoming game, and showed energy at the pep rally. She was the MC along with Christina Jefferson, both of them were very enthusiastic.

“Our win was definitely overdue, but well deserved,” said Kaity Leherr

The seniors showed a lot of spirit this year on the spirit days especially for crew day. There were many groups including Scooby-doo, Incredibles, and Grease.

Energy was a huge factor in the win and the seniors showed it. Leherr said, “We were definitely the loudest group.”

Winning homecoming week for the first time was a great start to their last year, and it will help them get through the struggles of senior year.
