And your 2022 SBCS Homecoming King and Queen are…
Seniors Owen Smith and Sydney Collins were crowned our 2022 Homecoming King and Queen after Vikings middle school, JV, and Varsity basketball teams fought hard to represent SBCS at Homecoming.
The entire week was filled with opportunities to show school spirit and get excited about Friday’s Homecoming activities and games. Students, staff, and teachers dressed up for Pajama Day, Dress Up Day, Decade Day, Wacky/Tacky Day, and School Spirit Day. Pep rallies on Thursday and Friday added to the excitement of the week.
Even with the threat of snow, the gym was packed for the Homecoming games Friday afternoon and evening. Fans joined the spirit tunnel to welcome our teams onto the court for warm-ups, then filled the stands and the stage with Vikings Pride for the games. The Varsity Girl’s game opened with Alyssa Pope singing the National Anthem, and Andrea Melton sang for the opening of the Varsity Boy’s games. All of the teams played great games, with the JV Boys claiming victory against Trinity Academy.
Following the games, our Homecoming Court was presented in Salem’s auditorium this year. After limiting attendance for the past two years, we were excited to return to open attendance this year. Representing the Freshman class this year were Ryleigh Collins & Bryson Hurt and Faith Harris & Weston Tyndall. The Sophmore class representatives were Savanna Alciati & Preston Tate, and Kenzie Draughon & Daniel Watkins. Ena Cabrara & Jalen Kimbrough, Alexis Covington & Blake Applegate, and Naomi Myers & Caiden Morrison represented the Junior class. Our Senior class was represented by Leah Calloway & Dylan Weer, Mallory Duggins & Hunter Crouse, and Sydney Collins & Owen Smith.
Michael Marra, last year’s Homecoming King, crowned Owen Smith as Homecoming King for 2022. Owen has signed on to play baseball at Guilford College next and wrote that his favorite Bible verse is Romans 8:38-39 – “For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
After Homecoming, Owen expressed his gratitude, saying, “I am extremely honored to have been voted Homecoming King by my peers. Thank you to all of you who voted for me!”
Sydney Collins was crowned this year’s Homecoming Queen by Ella Brown, the 2021 Homecoming Queen. Next year, Sydney plans to attend Forsyth Tech. Her favorite Bible verse is Philippians 4:13 – “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”
According to Sydney, “Being nominated to represent the senior class and also being voted the 2022 Homecoming Queen was such an honor. Homecoming is something I looked forward to every year from playing in the basketball game to being on the Homecoming Court. Thank you to everyone that voted for me; this is something I will always remember.”
Congratulations, Owen and Sydney!
