Eagle High’s Homecoming Week Was a Time to Remember

Eagle High’s Homecoming week included some of the best days of the fall semester. From the dress up days, to the football game or Powderpuff game, there were so many fun memories made and fun events going on.  Students enjoyed doing things like attending the assembly, going to the football game or attending the “Glow Down,” dance.   

To start Homecoming week off strong, the Powderpuff game took place at the Thunder Stadium on Monday. Girls who were freshman to seniors participated in the annual Powderpuff game. Eagle High football players either coached the girls playing or dressed as cheerleaders to cheer them on.  This year, the juniors won 7-0, beating the seniors.   

Homecoming dress up days were incredibly fun to do, and a great way to score spirit points for student grade levels.  On Monday students wore their grade’s assigned color.  Tuesday was Biker vs. Surfer, and Wednesday was Cowgirl vs. Cowboy.  For Thursday, students dressed like Adam Sandler, and Friday was Camo out. 

On Friday, students attended the Homecoming assembly where Homecoming royalty was announced, and fun games were played.  Freshman Homecoming royalty included Ellie Davis and Liam MacGillivray.  Sophomore royalty was Austin Hartnett and Tommy Stone.  Junior royalty included Sadie Little and Roman Walker.  Senior royalty was Makeo Sneddon, Delaney Bub, Tristan Walker and Molly Johnson.  During the assembly, a game of musical chairs took place where sophomore Noah Burnham won.

The Eagle High football game against Boise High took place on Friday at the Thunder Stadium.  Boise was ranked the number two seed and Eagle High was the number one seed according to Boise Sports Talk.  Eagle won the game 40-21 beating Boise.  Sophomore Noah Burnham scored four touchdowns with his first one being 80 yards.   

“My favorite thing about Homecoming is getting an excuse to dress up, go to a fancy dinner, and hang out with friends,” said junior Addy Giles.  Students enjoyed dressing up, taking pictures, going out to dinner and attending the dance.  Due to inclement weather, the dance was moved from outside the Thunder stadium to the social center.  Students enjoyed glow in the dark decorations, fun music and even a donut truck. 

“My favorite thing about Homecoming is the dance because getting ready with my friends is so much fun,” said junior Sienna Wooten.  Eagle High students made many fun memories and had a great time with friends throughout Homecoming week.
