Chiefs celebrate homecoming


Homecoming activities at Iroquois High School began on Fri., Sept 17, with the crowning of King Montana Sprong and Queen Katie Dubro, followed by a burning of the “I.” Each day of the following week was filled with fun ‘dress-up’ days and events.

On Mon., Sept. 20, the cross-country team traveled to Clear Lake for the Deuel Invite, while the JH/JV football teams met up with Warner in Doland.

The volleyball team took on Hitchcock/Tulare in Doland on Tuesday.

On Wednesday, the FFA attended FFA Range Day in Redfield, and on Thursday, volleyball players stayed in Iroquois in a match-up against Sanborn Central/Woonsocket.

Homecoming Friday started with windy, rainy weather, but it cleared with the sun appearing before noon. The parade, themed TV shows, was held at 2:30.

The sophomore class won best float with their entry “Survivor” - “Outwit, Outplay, Outlast!” In the middle school division, 6th graders won with “Scooby Doo” — “C’mon Chiefs, we have a game to win, now!” K-5 ended in a tie between the 5th grade, “Tom and Jerry” — “Can’t Catch Me!” and elementary student council, “The Munsters” — “Mash the Chargers!”

The best community float award went to the Iroquois Booster Club, who paid tribute to the series “Mash” with “We’re going to mash the Chargers!” Also joining the parade was Marlin Clendening wearing his National Guard uniform and driving his 1941 Dodge.

The parade was followed by the JV football game against the Sully Buttes Chargers. The game ended in a win for the Chargers, 38-0. A meal was served during and after the game.

To end the week, fourteen teams competed in a bean bag tournament. Lucas Peskey and Rexton Blue won first place and $40. Second place went to Harley Nelson and Katie Dubro, who won $20, and Anna Decker and Becca Bich took third, winning $10. Special thanks to the Iroquois Booster Club and all who participated for helping make the week a success.
