Pros and cons of being on Homecoming Court

Kaela Halvorson @Kaelswhales [Design Editor]

In past years, everyone waits on the side of the streets and watches as most of the Marion students march, walk, or ride to show off their own sporting activities, clubs, or band. What catches most people’s attention is the cool cars, and the nice looking people on and in those vehicles. These people are known as the Homecoming Court, and tonight, they get to ride in these stylish cars and have their time to shine.

Ashley Ohl and Will Byers, both seniors, are going to be sitting in those Corvettes tonight, all eyes on them. “I’m nervous that I’ll fall off the car if they stop too fast,” Ohl stated with a smile. Byers is shares some of the same fears. “I’m nervous a little bit, but I’m not sure who will win because it’s a good competition between all of us,” said Byers. Both get their time to shine as they ride in the cars down the streets and walk across the track in front of their classmates. This is a once in a lifetime shot to be noticed, and both of these seniors are going to embrace it.

With being on the court, both students are sacrificing something as well. They are both in different activities which are also featured in the parade; Ohl, who is on the volleyball team, and Byers, who is in band. “I’m disappointed because I love my team and I want to be with them, but I mean, it’s a Corvette,” Ohl stated. Her love for the game and her teammates won’t stop just because she isn’t walking with them. Byers, who is a four year band member, added, “It kinda sucks because I’ve marched with them every year,” Byers explained Even though they won’t be with their groups during the parade, the volleyball team and marching band are going to be supporting them throughout the whole thing.

s some people’s favorite part about Homecoming. “The whole thing in general is my favorite part, there is so much school spirit and it’s cool to see everyone getting so excited,” Byers commented. As for Ohl, she is still going to participate in some of her favorite activities, “ My favorite used to be the pie eating contest but we don’t do that anymore, so the tug of war is my favorite thing to do this year,” Ohl remarked. These memories will last forever, both the honor of being on the court and the excitement in playing the games. Let the games and competitions begin!
