The cheerleading squad grabs their poms for another cheer during the Homecoming football game.

Six o’clock on September 23 brought about the annual festivities of Homecoming. The parade displayed the floats built by each grade, and the homecoming court members made their way through downtown.

The football game kicked off at seven o’clock with Bulldogs receiving the ball from the East Jordan Red Devils. In the first half the Red Devils managed to score 26 points while holding the Bulldogs scoreless.

With halftime came the marching band performing their first full marching show of the season. After the band, the cheer team showed all their hard work they have put in with a dance routine. The floats showcased in the parade were driven past the stands and results of the judging were announced. The seniors took first place in the float competition with their depiction of Zeus on Mount Olympus. The seniors also took first in spirit points for the week.

The last halftime announcement was the crowning of king and queen. Luke and Alexis Passino were proclaimed the royalty of the night.

The football team continued to struggle against new foes from the Northern Michigan Football Conference, losing to East Jordan, 0-40. The best scoring chance came on a Peejay Delos Santos kickoff return to the East Jordan 10-yard line with about three minutes left in the game, but the Bulldogs were unable to score on four attempts.
