King & Queen Announced
Prescott High School students crowned their royalty at the halftime of the football game against Mohave last night. While the Badgers had things well at hand leading 42-0 at the break, the Pride of Prescott Band and Color Guard performed. Then came the big announcement.
All the nominees were introduced and walked across midfield to take their places on each side. The boys stood to the left, while the girls to the right. The tension prior to the announcement was seen in the faces of all the nominees. Finally, over the loud speakers, came the names of the winning students.
Peter Lewis and Naomi Worob, both Pride of Prescott Band students, were named as this years King and Queen. The crowd erupted with applause as the two winners joined each other at the 50 yard line. They each got into the green SUV chariot and made the lap around the track, waving and smiling in the process.
Lewis, a senior, plays in the percussion pit. Worob, who is also a senior, plays the flute.
The game ended with the Badgers winning 55-0. The homecoming dance followed, topping off a day of festivities that included a pep rally, skits, and the band, who marched and played through the halls to escort the students to the rally.
The Pride of Prescott Marching Band, was accompanied by members of the Granite Mountain Middle School, and Prescott Mile High Middle School bands, for their pregame show.
It was a day to remember for Prescott High School.
Prescott loves an excuse for a parade, and Homecoming Week is as good a reason as any!
