The coronation


Congratulations go to Lin Lu and Mattie Karr for being Olathe Northwest’s homecoming king and queen. Even though the homecoming football game had to be cut short, coronation was completed and we were able to crown the king and queen before the storm moved in. This tradition of all the homecoming festivities has sustained since the early 1900s.

The first accredited homecoming football game was at Mizzou in 1911 against their main rival, University of Kansas. The tradition of having a homecoming court did not begin till the 1930s. Candidates were originally nominated for their float presentation during the homecoming parade. Nominations have since evolved and is now are ultimately nominated for their individual qualities.

Seniors Lin Lu and Mattie Karr were crowned Friday, October 5, at during half time of the football game. Lin was not expecting to win because as he states, “Robert and Nickels are great guys.” Mattie had to go through the anticipation when the announcer first just said “Mattie” because Maddie Kenny was also nominated. She could not believe it when her name was called she was “so so happy.”

All the underclassman princes and princesses were crowned at the Friday homecoming pep assembly. The freshman winners were Jack Cashman and Olivia Contractor. For the sophomores Abbie and Alex Murray won. Lastly the junior winners were Allison Thomas and Collin Couch.

Even though the homecoming football game only made it to the third quarter all the other homecoming festivities were carried out as normal.  The homecoming week ended with the homecoming dance on Saturday night that all the court members were announced and made appearances. Olathe Northwest had a safe and successful homecoming week and weekend.
