FHS students get into the spirit of homecoming

Farragut High School’s football homecoming 2004 week began Monday, Sept. 27, and concludes Friday, Oct. 1, when the Admirals host the Governors of William Blount.

Kick-off is at 7:30 p.m.

The cheerleading squad sponsors “Spirit Week”, which is the theme of the homecoming festivities.

The FHS Student Government Association came up with

a new idea for this year’s


“Farragut has never really had floats,” said Lauren Dobbs, senior SGA member. “This year we are going to have mini-floats, one for each class.” The students borrowed four shopping carts from Kroger in Farragut in order to create floats on wheels. The floats will be wheeled to the football game for display.

“It’s a little different but it should be fun,” Dobbs said.

“Spirit Week” began on Monday and students were encouraged to wear their most comfortable nightwear and slippers to class.

Tuesday was clash day. The students wore mismatched clothing, socks and shoes.

Wednesday was salad dressing day. Students were allowed to dress in the theme of their favorite salad dressing. For example, if their favorite dressing is ranch, they were to dress as if they were on a ranch.

Today, Thursday, is twin day. The students find a friend either male or female and dress alike.

Friday is blue and gray day. FHS students are encouraged to “proudly” display school colors.

In addition, each class has designed and created a school spirit banner. The banners arehung throughout the school building. A panel of judges will select the winning class and the winner will be announced at a pep-rally that begins at 7:45 a.m. Friday.

Students have been narrowing down the number of homecoming queen nominees by voting throughout the week. The queen and her court will be announced during halftime at Friday’s football game.

Last year’s winner, Kendel Wolf, will crown the new queen. Wolf is a freshman at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga and said she is looking forward to the game.

“I had such a great time last year,” she said. “Being nominated homecoming queen was a huge surprise, absolutely awesome.”
