Ronan High School celebrates homecoming
RONAN — The Ronan High School Chiefs and Maidens celebrated homecoming last week with special events, theme days and float making.
The junior class of 2023 won this year’s Spirit Stick award and homecoming float contest, while the freshman class won both the bale and hall decorating contests.
The Maidens picked up a three set (25-13, 25-23, 25-23) homecoming volleyball win Tuesday evening over the visiting Whitefish Lady Bulldogs.
Olivia Clairmont paced the Maidens with 11 kills followed by Margaret Cordova with 11 digs and Leina Ulutoa with 19 blocks.
On Friday afternoon, future Chiefs and Maidens scooped up candy thrown from homecoming parade participants as the marching band, sports teams, RHS clubs, homecoming court and floats returned to the streets of downtown Ronan for the annual homecoming parade after a year spent cooped up during the pandemic.
The Ronan Fire Department and Ronan City police added to the festivities with lights and sirens.
During the football game’s halftime festivities Friday evening, Areanna Burke was named 2021 homecoming queen, while Ruben Couture was named homecoming king.
Rounding out the rest of the homecoming court were Payton Cates, Sage Coffman, Hannah Rowe, LaReina Cordova, Noah Durheim, Rylie Lindquist, Dillon Pretty On Top and Olivia Clairmont.
The visiting Browning Indians pulled out a squeaker over the Chiefs with a 34-32 Northwestern A football conference win.
