GHS gearing up for homecoming week

Greybull High School will go “Back in Time” next week, Sept. 10-15, with the advent of homecoming.

It will all start out Monday morning when students will decorate the halls and participate in “Color Wars” with class members asked to dress in pre-designated colors. You’ll know them by the colors: freshmen will be wearing purple; sophomores will don green, juniors red, and seniors will be decked out in pink.

The tug-of-war will take place on the GHS football field at about 7 p.m. The traditional “Burning of the G” will be held north of the Buff Gym right after the tug-of-war.

Tuesday is “Prehistoric Day.” Plus, a service honoring our servicemen and servicewomen, sponsored by Big Brothers Big Sisters, will be held on the football field right after football practice.

Wednesday is 1960s day.

Thursday is Future Day. The Lady Buffs play Rocky Mountain in Cowley at 4, 5, 6 p.m.

Friday features the Buff Olympics; a Booster Club-sponsored lunch from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m.; the homecoming parade at 12:15 p.m., volleyball matches against Thermopolis at 2, 3 and 4 p.m. and the football game against Thermopolis at 7 p.m.

The homecoming royalty will be introduced and the queen and king crowned during halftime of the football game.

Senior king candidates are Dylan Brenner, Kyle McIntosh and Rob Nuttall. Denis Sosa, Biri Gallegos and Hunter Grant are the queen candidates.

Attendants include freshmen  Eric Aguilar and Maria Garay; sophomores Oscar Gomez and Karlina McIntosh and juniors Cache Griffin and Nevin Brown.
