Tomorrow will be class distinction day with the powder puff and kickball games beginning at 5:30 p.m. where the juniors will face off against the freshmen and the seniors will take on the sophomores.

Following the games will be the introduction of the homecoming court with the crowning of the king and queen. This year’s court includes Olivia Caskey, Dawsyn Miller, Cana Rediger, Carmen Sieren, Will Cavanagh, Tyler Helmuth, Gunnar Gingerich and Thaddeus Schetler.
