Goodhue Homecoming


Goodhue students celebrated homecoming week September 25-29, 2023. The theme for this year’s events was “sports”. Each grade was assigned a sport to incorporate into the week’s activities such as dress-up day and window painting. The theme carried through to the video commercials created by 9-12th grades and the booster club. The videos were used as part of the coronation night entertainment.

The coronation ceremony was held at the high school on Monday, September 25th. Introducing the candidates and serving as emcees for the evening were Julia Carlson and Tanner Smith. This year’s homecoming royalty candidates were: Alexa Schafer, Ava Gadient, Olivia Ryan, Teagan Hinsch and Ellie Peterson for queen and Jed Ryan, Caden Berg, Carsyn O’Reilly, Gavin Schafer and Eli Ryan for King. Junior attendants were Avy Agenten and Lincoln Ryan with Raina Diercks and Henry Huneke serving as crown bearers. The crowns were placed on Gavin Schafer and Ellie Peterson.

The Junior class boys and the teachers each defeated the Senior boys in a fun volleyball competition. The powder puff football game had to be rescheduled because of rain and the parade was also postponed due to a rainy Friday morning.

Multiple food trucks were a part of the tailgate festivities that preceded the football game against Bethlehem Academy. The large crowd enjoyed an exciting and very close game that ended in a 38-34 score that, unfortunately, left Goodhue with their first loss of the season.
