Lincoln County High School had its Homecoming last week.
The first event was the Powder Puff game on Tuesday night. The seniors and freshmen went in as underdogs but still managed to win 16-6.
On Wednesday, the school had a water bottle flip competition during breakfast. Each student would go head-to-head with each other. They had four bottles in front of them and the first one to flip all four won. Simple. Freshmen Wyatt Cole won by grabbing a bottle in both hands and flipping them at the same time. He won the flipping contest with some style points.
On Tuesday there was the alumni assembly where the students performed a line dance they learned earlier that week. After the assembly, the students piled into busses to head over to the bonfire.
The bonfire was held in a different location than usual due to residents complaining about the smoke.
Because they want to get more students to go to the homecoming games, Lincoln students do not go to school on Monday but go to school on Friday. Friday is the official Homecoming day. The students don’t go to any classes on Friday. This year the students went back to their home town and collected food for a food drive.
Afterwards they played carnival games. Then they had two choices – they could watch a football movie in the Mathews Center or stay at the high school and play bingo.
The students dressed up for each day of Homecoming week. There was nerd day, spirit day, western day and sports day. The class that got the most students to dress up received more points. The class that got the most points won homecoming. During halftime of the football game the winner was announced. It was very close but the seniors beat the juniors by five points, and they won.
