The Kodiak High School student body is busy this week with fall homecoming events. KHS celebrates in many fun ways as they gear up for this weekend’s home football games against the rival Soldotna Stars.
Candice Jenson is on the bonfire committee and says that Friday evening at 8, a bonfire will take place behind Safeway, where the football team will be introduced and recognized.
(Homecoming 1 :25s “…at the bonfire.”)
KHS student Sonya Jones is a part of the royalty committee that organizes the homecoming king and queen selection process. She says announcements for who won the election for Homecoming King and Queen will be announced over the weekend.
(Homecoming 2 :32s “…on Saturday.”)
Both Jenson and Jones say a pep rally is taking place this (Thursday) morning in the KHS gym in order to raise spirits for this weekend’s football games, as well as to introduce many of the school’s athletes.
(Homecoming 3 :21s “…during homecoming weekend.”)
Friday also presents a fun opportunity for KHS female students to play some football, as KHS hosts Gilrs Powder-Puff football game. Jenson says all girls are invited to participate.
(Homecoming 4 :13s “…and twelfth graders.”)
There will be many Kodiak teams competing on island this weekend besides football. The Kodiak cross country team will be hosting races against Anchorage’s Grace Christian Friday afternoon at Fort Abercrombie starting at 4 p.m. The KHS volleyball teams will be playing at home against Soldotna on Friday and Saturday. The KHS swim team will be off island to compete against Soldotna today (Thursday) and Friday, but will be back in time for the football games on Saturday.
