Another successful weekend went by for the 2014 Villa Maria and Cathedral Prep homecoming dance. When asked about the event attendance, event organizer Mrs. Maxson said, “We had a record number of about 650 students there! That’s the highest in the three years that we’ve combined our homecoming dances.”
The football team opened up the exciting weekend with a 51-21 victory over DuBois. During halftime, the homecoming court zoomed around the track in their flashy cars waving in acknowledgement. The winner was to be announced at the dance the next day.
Most likely everyone that attended the dance also had similar preparations. Moms, Dads, and grandparents all had their cameras ready and each took the same picture a million times. After the smiles began to wear out, people dined at places like the Yacht Club, Kahkwa, Lakeshore, Avantis, and other various restaurants around town.
The dance commenced at 8 o’clock with DJ Matty B working the music. A lot of different music was played, and everyone was enjoying it while letting their inner-selves lose it on the dance floor. Many faculty and parents chaperoned the dance and seemed to be enjoyed their Saturday night as well. While the music was loud and the place was full of energy, the heat and sweatiness was also apparent. Students were constantly grabbing refreshments and getting to the lounge area for some extra air as well. One could say it was a workout.
The one moment everyone was waiting for was brought attention to around 10:15. The homecoming court from Prep included Joe Fustine, Jack Kelly, Andrew Chludzinski, Billy Norfolk, and Trevor Faulkner. The court from Villa consisted of Annie Ciacchini, Maggie Rutkowski, Maria Colt, Grace Trucilla, and Sunny Guo. All votes were cast via the Vote For Schools app by Prep and Villa students. The 2014 Homecoming King was Trevor Faulkner, and the Homecoming Queen was Sunny Guo.
A special thank you goes out to Mrs. Maxson for organizing this event with the help of several other students and administration. Hopefully everyone had a great time, and everyone can look forward to another successful homecoming next year!
