It was homecoming week at Exeter-Milligan. The students celebrated the theme “Up, Up and Away.”
The entire school dressed up with some fun costumes starting with throwback day on Monday. Tuesday was twin day and on Wednesday each class from kindergarten to seniors were assigned a different color. Thursday was costume day and of course, Friday was Spirit day.
Winners of the Spirit Cup challenge for hall decorations were first place to the ninth grade, second place seventh grade and third place, eighth grade.
All of the Exeter-Milligan students came to the Exeter football field on Friday afternoon for the pep rally. The cheerleaders planned the event and started with the senior football players. The boys had to stack six unwrapped chocolate snack cakes on their heads and the first to balance them there won the contest.
Next the cheerleaders asked a member of each of the sports teams that are currently in action to give a report on the team’s progress.
The Exeter-Milligan kindergarten, first and second graders had practiced a cheer and led the crowd in a very enthusiastic manner.
The Timberwolves defeated the Johnson-Brock Eagles 76-14 and after the game, the homecoming court was introduced.
Homecoming attendants were Freshmen: Sydney Hall and Cameron White, Sophomores: Marissa Howard and Sean Maxson, Juniors: Amber Pribyl and Dustin Axline Seniors: Duchess-Kylie Briske, Duke-Garett Pribyl, Princess-Erica Yound Prince-Robert Harre, Queen-Brooke Manning, King- Nolan White.
Following the ceremonies the Homecoming Dance was held in the Milligan gym with entertainment by Music Video To Go.
