King and Queen of 2016
November 3, 2015
Gripping her father’s arm tight, senior Mackenzie Porch waits for the announcer to say the name of the first ever OTHS Homecoming Queen. Agony surpasses Porch as the announcer takes a long dramatic pause before she finally hears her name blasting through the stadium. Tears fill her eyes as her hand flies to her mouth in disbelief.
“When I was announced as Queen I was so shocked and overwhelmed with joy. I will remember that moment forever,” Porch said.”I am so blessed and honored to be the first ever OTHS Queen.”
Also making OTHS history, senior Conor Devlin was crowned Homecoming King. Unlike the other boys on the court, Devlin was escorted by his mother wearing a sweaty football uniform rather than a nice suit and tie. Devlin was anxious to finally see who would be crowned.
“I got really enthusiastic when I was announced as the Homecoming King and something that seemed sort of unexpected, ” Devlin said.”I feel upset that my girlfriend Emily did not win Queen and it would have been a more meaningful win if she had won too.”
The Homecoming Court was made up of the best people at OTHS. Each candidate would have been a great choice.
