Mapleleaf Athletic Complex was full of excitement for many reasons. The crisp fall air wasn’t the only thing to enjoy, as the seniors defeated the juniors during powderpuff girl’s football. This is a long-standing tradition that has seen winners throughout the year hoist their hands in the air in victory, while the losers hang their heads low.
For the first time since the completion of the concrete parking lot at Mapleleaf, high school students were able to participate in the best part of boom night. Teenagers watched in awe as an effigy was burned in front of their eyes. When it comes to school spirit, few do it better than Mt. Pleasant.
The Homecoming football game is this evening, with the high school gym being transformed into a dance floor tomorrow night. It is a special night for many, but few will enjoy it as much as the court, who will be crowned that evening.
Your Mt. Pleasant 2023 Homecoming Queen is Josie Gilmore who will be joined arm-in-arm by the 2023 Homecoming King Payson Coleman. Also in the court are Emma Starr and Phoenix Watson, Andi Scott and Ben Newton, Courtney Raub and Logan Borders, and Bailey Jalas and Carson Andreason. A huge congratulations must be given to the royalty, and a huge thank you to Lomont Molding for sponsoring this coverage.
