Spirit Lake students finished a jam-packed week of activities in celebration of homecoming week. Wednesday's coronation was a highlight, with Anne Horsman and Nigel Hanson named king and queen. They are joined in the front row by flower girl Alaina Bruinsma and scepter bearer Lucas Bolluyt. Other members of the court were (back row from left) Sawyer Harms, Sarah Hussong, Aric Waltz, Regan Heinrichs, Alex Dau, Brooke Janicek, Andrew Broocks and Molly Dziedzic. An afternoon parade down Hill Avenue helped fuel school spirits going into Friday night's game. Supporters weren't disappointed following a visit to Hafer Field. Spirit Lake cruised past Sheldon 42-14 in a key Class 2A top-10 matchup.
