FREMONT – Fremont High School’s Homecoming theme was “Let’s Glow Crazy” this year.
The students showed their school spirit throughout the week, and got into the Homecoming spirit with some competitions, such as door decorating and the annual tug-of-war contest. Also throughout the week, students had the chance to buy class t-shirts and glow bracelets. All of the money went to the Fremont Tiger Family Fund. Fremont High’s Activities Director, Scott Anderson says the Fremont Tiger Family Fund’s purpose is to help those in need in the Fremont community.
“We try to raise money for area families in need. That money that we use goes to help our community out,” said Anderson. “People in our community who need assistance with different things. So we have fundraisers for that charity a couple of times throughout the year.”
All the students and faculty gathered for a pep rally on Friday morning, where most of the student body was wearing their new class t-shirts. The lights went off for the Homecoming Royalty video and for the Dance Team’s performance, but the gymnasium continued to glow.
Also at the pep rally, the school held the coronation for their 2017 Homecoming King and Queen. The candidates for queen were Karla Zavala, Rachel Watson, Logan Voss, Sarah Qualsett, and Hannah Leeper. The candidates for king were Colin Lottman, Bergan Hofer, Riley Harms, Juan Diaz, and Chase Cate. Fremont High School’s 2017 Homecoming Queen and King were Sarah Qualsett and Juan Diaz.
The Homecoming Football game against the undefeated Lincoln High kicked off on Friday evening. Rain continued to come down from the start of the game all the way through halftime, where the Homecoming court was announced to the crowd. During halftime it was announced that due to a lightening and rain delay, the game would be postponed. The game resumed with the third quarter at 8:30 a.m. on Saturday morning, and the Tigers fell to the Links with a score of 28-0. The weather cleared up in time on Saturday for the Homecoming Dance.
