2017 Homecoming King & Queen Crowned

Last week was Spirit Week at Gothenburg Public Schools—the week of Homecoming, when students and staff get the chance to just have fun showing their pride and support for their beloved Swedes.

Of course, one of the highlights of Homecoming is the crowning of the King and Queen. Each year the student body in grades 9-12 vote for the senior boys and senior girls they would most like to see wearing the crown. A brief pep rally was held in the school’s north gym Friday, Sept. 29 during the lunch hour, where this year’s top three vote getters were announced.

Vying for the title of 2017 Homecoming Queen were Arleigh Costello, Nataleagh Sitorius and Natalie Kennicutt. King candidates are Noah Larson, AJ Whiting and Blake Riley. The King and Queen - Blake Riley and Arleigh Costello - were crowned at the conclusion of Friday night’s game against the Cozad Haymakers.
