Ronan hosts reverse parade during homecoming
RONAN — With COVID-19 concerns still looming on many high school campuses across the state, Ronan High School celebrated their annual homecoming parade a little differently. The students held a reverse parade on Friday afternoon in place of the more traditional parade of marching down Main Street.
The students’ friends and family drove by waving out of car windows and honking their car horns as the students stayed in one place and waved. The Ronan High School band played music and the homecoming court sat on top of shiny muscle cars parked along the roadside in front of the softball field on Third Ave NW.
In lieu of the float decorating contest, each high school class decorated a section of the softball field fence, and the senior class won the contest.
On Thursday, in homecoming volleyball action, the Ronan Maidens hosted the Columbia Falls Wildkats.
The Wildkats prevailed in three straight sets over the Maidens 25-11, 25-17, 25-21. Olivia Clairmont led the Maidens with five kills and an ace. Rylie Lindquist had 12 of the Maidens 24 digs and Leina Ulutoa posted 12 assists.
On Friday evening, the Ronan Chiefs capped off homecoming week with a football game against the Whitefish Bulldogs. The Bulldogs defeated the Chiefs 41-12.
The Ronan Homecoming Court of Macao Jackson, Kiana King, Jaylea Lunceford, Madeline McCrea, Leonard Burke, Zarec Couture, Girma Detwiler and Daniel Kelsch were introduced during halftime of the football game. Madeline McCrea and Leonard Burke were crowned Ronan homecoming queen and king.
