The rain poured down on the night of the announcement of Homecoming Queen and Princesses. The crowd was watching with anticipation and maybe a little bit of impatience since most were cold and wet. At last, Homecoming Queen was declared Shelby Hill.

“When I heard my name come over that intercom I was speechless,” said Homecoming Queen Hill. “I didn’t know what to say or what to do. I was completely frozen, but that could be from the rain, too.”

The crowd was thrilled with the outcome and congratulated them in their own ways.

“Shelby’s been wanting this for a long time now,” said senior Josh Morrison. “She really deserved this, and we’re all happy for her.”

Homecoming King and Princes were declared at the annual Medieval Games earlier that day in the gymnasium, where the winners received the title, and the king was crowned.

“It felt great knowing that everyone voted for me,” said the king, Alex Childers. “All of my friends ran out once my name was called.”

They both wish to leave a legacy behind for future kings and queens to live by one day.

“They need to speak true, live pure and right wrongs every day,” said Hill. “And go Knights!”
