Arlee celebrates homecoming
ARLEE – It was a royal night under the lights Friday night at Lambert Demers Field as the Arlee High School crowned its 2018 Homecoming Royalty during a coronation ceremony at half-time of the Arlee Warriors and Flint Creek Titans football game.
The Arlee 2018 Homecoming court candidates were Mia Pierre-Stone, Dar Bolen, Sydni Rodger, Lane Johnson, Frankie Wright, Lane Schall, Louetta Conko-Camel and Isaac Ahenakew.
Dar Bolen and Frankie Wright were crowned king and queen and received their crowns from last year’s homecoming queen and king Ashley Tanner and George Shick.
In addition to the halftime ceremonies and football game, there was a wide range of homecoming activities throughout the week. “The student council and pep club did an excellent job with the homecoming celebration this year,” said Arlee teacher Sue Carney.
To start the week, the seniors won the hall-decorating contest with their “Mario Kart” theme. Sophomores placed second with “Tropical Hawaiian,” and the freshman placed third with “Looney Toons.” The juniors took fourth with “Pac Man.”
Skylar Titsworth won the “Most Spirited Warrior” and Emily Fiddler won the “Most Spirited Scarlet,” while the freshman won the class spirit award.
On Friday, Warrior and Scarlet fans lined the streets as the football, volleyball, and cross-country teams along with the homecoming court moved through town during the homecoming parade.
The Scarlets volleyball team kicked off homecoming weekend Thursday evening by hosting the Charlo Lady Vikings. The Lady Vikings prevailed in the five-set battle 25-18, 25-20, 21-25, 20-25, 15-11.
Homecoming didn’t go as planned for head coach Chuck Forgey and his Warrior football team either as they fell 36-14 to the number one ranked Flint Creek Titans.
Despite the modest offensive output against the Titans, the defense of the Warriors proved sturdy and aggressive. The unit held the Titans’ offense to just 36 points, their lowest point total so far this season.
