Bright “80’s workout-themed” clothes partially hidden by warm blankets adorned the crowd cheering for the anticipated Homecoming game on Oct. 20, resulting in a 3-0 win for the team leading into their play-off season.

Prior to the game, Stuco promoted excitement through spirit days, including “Jerseys and Jorts,” “Dynamic Duos,” “80’s Workout,” and the day after the game with “KC Pride.” In addition, the Homecoming game doubled as senior night for all seniors involved in a fall sport.

“I would describe senior night as ‘controlled chaos’. It was just awesome to have the whole school out to support us [seniors] and the rest of the team, senior Jackson Vander Ark said. “It was an honor to play alongside my fellow senior classmates and I’m super grateful to everyone who helped make that night special.”

During halftime of the game, the Homecoming court nominees were honored and the Homecoming King and Queen were announced.

Senior Emanuel Flemming received the Homecoming king designation.

“I was not expecting it, it’s one of those things where it’s a once-in-a-lifetime deal, and I’m really honored to have been chosen,” Flemming said. “Honestly it’s even more of an honor that I haven’t been here as long as the other people on the court, so it makes it that much more special.”

Senior Maya Mastin was crowned Homecoming queen.

“When they said my name I wasn’t really thinking, I was like “Oh wait what that’s me, OK where do I go”, but I was really excited,” Mastin said. “It was so good to see [2016 Homecoming King] Peter [Beikman] and [2016 Homecoming Queen] Sarah [Gromer] and have them give my the crown and sash, that made it even better. I was also so excited that E-Man [Flemming] was the king, he deserves it and it was fun to represent the school with him.”

Throughout the duration of the game, the crowd intently watched each movement, nearly jumping from their seats as a player approached the goal, and shouting encouragement to individual players. “Come on, come on!” the crowd would shout as watched their team score a total of three goals: one by junior Cooper Mumford and two by senior James Kucera.

The cheerleaders also promoted school spirit, kicking off their season by cheering through the game and selling “throwback” jerseys during the JV game.

“Cheering at the game was weird to me because I have never cheered before, but I absolutely loved it,” Senior Anna Schuchardt said. “I loved cheering on the guys and giving them our support. There were so many people there and it felt like we were not just a small private school. I thought the game went really well and everyone felt the ‘KCC spirit’.”

The game had a sentimental, wholesome feel. The team, fueled by a full, spirit-filled crowd bundled in the chilly 40-degree weather, led their school to victory.
