On Friday, Oct. 7 the winners of the homecoming court were announced during halftime at the football game. 


Beforehand, students had the opportunity to vote for their favorite candidate. Freshman to juniors  each have a Homecoming princess, seniors have a Homecoming king and queen. Spirit Week lasted throughout the week to show support for the long-standing homecoming tradition.


On Friday, the candidates lined up and then each one was escorted forward by someone of their choice. With a formal introduction, the winner of each grade was announced and the celebration commenced.


Out of those who ran for court as a freshman, Cassandra Franco won. Her competitors were Caitlin Reynolds, Alisa Tufekcic and Ally Stanfield.


Lylah Heaps, Heaven Small, Emmy DeRose and Ally Stanfield competed to be the sophomore Homecoming princess, and Emmy DeRose won.


In junior, the contenders were Samantha Francesconi, Emily Mason, Gabrielle Souffrant and Ava Droze, the last of which won.


Emmelyn Harrison, Claire Pope, Peyton Davis, Mary Caroline Brooks and Lindsey Head were all in line to be crowned. Colin Miller, Noah Colwell, Andrew Elkhill, West Robert and Cody Skinner were potential candidates for Homecoming king.


The Homecoming king and queen are Noah Colwell and Mary Caroline Brooks. The king and queen runner-ups are Collin Miller and Lindsey Head.


Colwell is in the drumline for the NFHS band, drama and the school’s Chamber choir. He is also class president.


Mary Caroline Brooks ran for Homecoming court her freshman and sophomore years, so it must be thrilling to win, especially to be crowned as queen. She played varsity lacrosse.


Congratulations to the 2022-23 Homecoming king and queen, the princesses of each grade, and the runner-ups!
