Several weeks ago the Moore County High School student body cast ballots to determine which of its three senior Homecoming 2012 attendants would be named queen. Friday night at Raider Stadium, senior Antonio Arguelles crowned Autumn Grogan in front of an enthusiastic home crowd.
Student Council members chose “Salad Dressing” as the Homecoming 2012 theme. Students took part in dress-up days throughout the week including Caesar Day, Ranch Day, Thousand Island Day and Cajun Day.
On Tuesday, the senior girls crowned Antonio Arguelles as Homecoming King at the annual Powder Puff game. Per tradition, the senior girls took on the junior girls while male cheerleaders with some “extracurricular” assets cheered them on. The seniors won 24 to 6.
On Friday, students participated in multiple contests like the Lip Sync Contest (won by the juniors) and the Male Beauty Contest (also won by Arguelles). Overall, the senior class was the contest points winners.
Friday afternoon, students participated in the annual Homecoming Parade. The eighth grade class took home the award for best entry. The sophomore class was the runners-up.
