Homecoming is in full swing this week at Greybull High School, where dress-up days and lunch-hour fun give way to more spectator friendly events starting today.

This year’s theme is “Buff Pride” and the community is encouraged to get involved — by decorating the windows of businesses, entering a float in the parade or attending one of the school activities.

Today (Thursday, Oct. 1) is “Buff Enough to Wear Pink Day” at the school, a day which will culminate in the “Pink Night” volleyball matches between Greybull and Riverside (4, 5 & 6 p.m.) followed by the traditional “Burning of the G” ceremony.

Friday’s lineup includes the Buff Olympics starting at 8:30 a.m., the pep assembly at 11 a.m., the parade at 12:15 p.m., the start of the Greybull-Riverside Volleyball Duals at 2 p.m. and the football game between the host Buffs and Kemmerer starting at 7 p.m.

Royalty will be crowned at halftime of the football game.

Candidates for king include Jordan Jackson, Marshall Gibbs and Lane Nielsen.

Queen candidates include Jessica Dowling, Lupe Gallegos and Gracie Mendez.

Rounding out the royal court are freshman attendants Morgan Haley and Abraham Mendez, sophomore attendants Serenity Kinswoman and Jose Araiza and junior attendants KieAnna Ridgway and Dawson McEwan.

Homecoming week culminates in the final day of the volleyball duals at Buff Gym and the annual homecoming dance which starts at 9 p.m. in the GMS Gym.
