Homecoming Week finally arrived in Wessington Springs this week after being postponed last month due to COVID-19 exposures and concerns within the school community.
Coronation kicked off the movie-themed homecoming week Monday evening in the elementary school gymnasium.
The Three Stooges — Cale Mohling as Moe, Quinten Christensen as Curly and Carter Grohs as Larry — served up plenty of slapstick comedy as the event’s emcees. They introduced homecoming royalty for 2020: Tyler Fastnacht, Jacob Messmer, Lane Olinger, Dylan Schimke, Trinity Flowers, Grace Gran, Angela Paulson and Lara Van Zoest.
Homecoming royalty anxiously awaited the 2020 crowning as crown bearers Maverick Roduner and Gianna Grohs gave the headdresses to 2019 King Brendin LaBore and Queen Piper Jones. The 2020 king and queen were finally named: Dylan Schimke and Trinity Flowers (shown above). Homecoming continues throughout the week, topped off by Friday’s 2 p.m. parade and 7 p.m. football game at Spartan Field.
