Moore County High School’s annual homecoming game is slated for Friday, Oct. 4 as the Raiders host Middle Tennessee Christian School. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m.
Leading up to the game, the MCHS Student Council has a slew of activities planned.
“We have already selected our homecoming attendants,” said Student Council sponsor Jana Brown, adding that the homecoming king will be crowned on Tuesday, Oct. 1 and the queen will be crowned prior to the game on Friday, Oct. 4.
This year’s homecoming court includes seniors Sierra Bateman, Tori Cooper and Carlee Ward; juniors Amber Austin and Brooklyne Guinn; sophomore Lacey Thomas; freshman Jennie Lingle; eighth-grader Maddie Guinn; and seventh-grader Taylor Reynolds.
According to MCHS Student Council president Hanna Pierce, homecoming week will be filled with activities for the students.
While there are a number of games and special themed days planned, one of the week’s highlights is the annual powder puff football game. The contest pitting junior and senior girls against each other on the gridiron is scheduled for Tuesday, Oct. 1 at 6:30 p.m. Admission is $3.
Before the powder puff game, the 2013 Moore County High School Homecoming king will be crowned. That ceremony will begin at 6 p.m.
On Friday, the football team, cheerleaders and a multitude of school clubs will participate in the homecoming parade. The parade will begin at approximately 2:05 p.m.
The week will culminate with the big game itself, as the Raiders welcome the Cougars to Raider Stadium. The contest is a key District 9-A game, as Moore County will look to stay in the hunt for a postseason berth.
