Loud cheers went up from the crowd, students yelled along with cheerleaders and royalty were crowned.
Anoka High School students showed they are ready for tonight’s Homecoming game against Maple Grove, which starts at 7 p.m. at Goodrich Field.
The student body, teachers and some parents gathered in the fieldhouse for an hour this morning (Sept. 28) for a Homecoming pep rally and coronation.
At the conclusion of the rally, Bradley Kurtz was crowned Homecoming King and Hope Nelson was crowned Homecoming Queen. Last year’s royalty Ben Sjodin and Becca Jarson did the honors of placing the crowns.
The other candidates for king were Devin Blanchard, Tony Erickson, Peter Hastings, Ethan Howard, Nathan Lucast, Cory Odom, Ryan Radzom, Malcolm Seals and Logan Syvock.
The other queen candidates were Aly Cross, Haliee Gifford, McKayla Murphy, Stephanie Peterson, Ellen Quist, Cassie Rebischke, Laura Sherva, Anna Walch and Shelby Wilcox.
