Incline High School Homecoming Week: Parade is Friday
Special to the Bonanza
This year’s theme for Incline High School Homecoming is “Under Where?” Each day this week includes fun activities and dress-up days that coordinate with the daily and class themes of “Under the Bed” (Freshmen), “Under the Lights” (Sophomores), “Under the Sea” (Juniors) and “Undercover” (Seniors).
The 2016 Homecoming Royalty chosen by the students are:
Freshmen: Prince J.J. Snyder and Princess Carolina Vargas.
Sophomores: Prince Brent Wolf and Princess Lauren Golden.
Juniors: Prince Marc Ramos and Princess Ellyse Kirkland.
Senior Court: Blaise Bibolet, Andrico Mourelatos, Benji Miranda and Conor Nix for the boys; Kassandra Luna, Dulce Medina, Ursula Volz and Ciera Winberg for the girls.
The 2016 Homecoming King and Queen are chosen from the Senior Court and will be crowned on Saturday night at the Homecoming Dance.
On Monday, the annual Highlander Bonfire was held at Incline Middle School. Each grade level and other IHS clubs sold food items and provided carnival games to help raise funds for their respective organizations. The night culminated in the huge bonfire supervised by the NLTFPD.
Friday, Sept. 23, is Green and Gold day. The students and staff wear the school colors and the community is encouraged to do the same.
The traditional Homecoming parade begins at 2 p.m. on Alder Avenue. The 45-minute parade heads west to Northwood Boulevard, then down to Tahoe Highway 28 east to the Raley’s Center, through the parking lot, and heads up the hill on Village Boulevard back to the high school.
The parade includes floats built by each grade level reflecting their theme for the week. The Mi Cultura club will have a float with the theme of “Under the Sun,” and the Pet Network will also be a part of the parade. The procession includes the Prince and Princesses and the four couples that make up the Class of 2017 royalty court.
The two very special individuals who have been chosen to be this year’s Grand Marshals for the parade are Marvin Cruz and Marcelo Navarro. Both are a part of Incline High School’s maintenance team and are very well respected by students and staff.
The two are responsible for the appearance, cleanliness and safety of the school and are very dedicated to the role they play at IHS. Marvin has been with Incline High for the past five years and Marcelo for approximately 10 years. The community is encouraged to come out to the parade and show their support for their local school.
The community is also encouraged to attend the home sporting events being held on Friday. The volleyball team will be playing host to Silver Stage. The JV game begins at 4 p.m. and Varsity at 5 p.m. in the gym.
The soccer teams hosts rival Truckee, with the girl’s team starting at 3 p.m. and the boys playing at 5 p.m. on the football field. The day ends with the Incline football team hosting Foresthill at 7 p.m.
The Incline Boosters Club will have the Snack Shack concessions open for the events on the football field. Information about the high school and Homecoming can be found at http://www.inclineschools.org.
