This week marked Winter Homecoming.

The 2018 King and Queen are Colton Farra and Crystal Rojas.

The 12 candidates nominated were seniors, Lourdes Tovar, Kamryn Walters, Marissa Wissar, Jessica Olivarez, Taylor Starnes, Crystal Rojas, Daniel Martinez, Miguel Molina, Colton Farra, Jose Vargas, Preston Moon, and Eddie Del Real. These candidates were recognized for their hard work and dedication to specific clubs, sports, and activities throughout the school. None of these candidates thought they’d be chosen to be part of the Winter Royalty court, however they appreciate the opportunity.

“I honestly never imagined that I would be nominated for Homecoming, but I feel very lucky to have been one of the few selected,” said Starnes.

These seniors have worked hard all four years and now they get this opportunity to be crowned King or Queen while being supported and cheered on by their peers. One of the many candidates is Vargas. He said he is proud to be representing the cheer squad.

“It feels great to represent the team and if I were to win it would be for them,” said Vargas.

Lourdes Tovar is also one of the few involved in many activities throughout the school including the Art Club, Book Club, and Track and Field.

“It feels great to represent all these clubs/activities because they’re less known or not as big as some other ones. Hopefully this will give them the recognition they deserve because they’re great clubs. I’ve enjoyed being a member of,” said Tovar.

The basketball teams took on Hays High in a WAC showdown.

The Lady Demon basketball team started the night with an intense back-to-back fight against the Lady Indians. With eight seconds left, the girls trailed 43-40, but Kisa Unruh, 09, nailed three to give the Lady Demons hope, sending the game into overtime.

Unruh would continue to keep Dodge alive in overtime play. Caroline Williams, 11, made one of her two free throws, which helped the team keep on, with only 30 seconds remaining, Dodge trailed 48-47. Williams again takes the line to throw one and misses. The score at the end of the game is 50-47 Hays.
