Beach Party in February: Meet the Spring Homecoming court
Published February 25, 2019
This past week BCHS hosted its annual competition for Spring Homecoming Queen and King, featuring candidates from every grade.
Candidates were nominated by students within their class. Freshmen candidates were Markese Hatcher, Quenten Morgan, Ty Thompson, Aricka Mullins, Raegan Stepp, and Catie Terrill. Sophomores were Marlowe Asher, Jaylen Dorsey, Jacob Robinson, Taelor Alexander, Melissa Sencer, and Nia Traore. Juniors candidates were Thomas Brock, Lucas Hannon, Brent Robinson, Lola Cox, Madi Cummins, and Carly McDonald. Finally, the senior competitors were Triston Duckworth, Anthony Garcia, Dylan Hanney, Garrett Theodore-Powell, Ben West, Adrienne Beggs, Hayleigh Burrows, Alyssa Carter, Cora Livingston, and Adelle Reyes.
While snow days got in the way of quite a bit of the homecoming week, the school was able to hold a rally to present the court to the student body on Friday. Candidates were announced with their hobbies and favorite activities. Ballots were cast within the same day; students voted for one girl and boy from each grade regardless of their own grade level.
At the basketball double header that night, the winners were announced. Freshmen Prince and Princess were Quenten Morgan and Raegan Stepp. Sophomore winners were Prince Jaylen Dorsey and Princess Taelor Alexander. Junior Prince Lucas Hannon was accompanied by Princess Madi Cummins. Senior Prince and Princess were Anthony Garcia and Hayleigh Burrows, with Queen and King awarded to Adrienne Beggs and Triston Duckworth. Homecoming was overall a great experience and a raging success for the candidates and the student body.
