MASON CITY – The Mason City Mohawks celebrated Homecoming this past week, with the theme “The Mohawk Games: Goin’ for Gold.”
Some of the activities the students were involved in were: float decorating; a powder puff football game; dress-up themes like, Follow your Dreams, Team America, Represent you Ring, Gear-up for Glory and Red and Black Day; pep rallies, the coronation, the parade and the homecoming football game against the Fort Dodge Dodgers.
The Homecoming King and Queen candidates were selected by the student body and they voted and announced Friday that Macke Rodamaker would be their Queen and Sahan Jayawardena would be their King.
The rest of the Queen’s Court consisted of Abby Phillips, Abbi Schupanitz, Jadda Buckley, Kelsey Murray and Nicolle Hewett.
The King’s Court is Austin Voves, Andrew Sloan, Jason Key, Will Slaven and Colton Staudt.
After the Parade, which ran from the High School up to Central Park, a pep rally for the students and the public was held. The cheerleaders and football players put on a show to get Mason City supporters and the alumni in the Mohawk Spirit and pepped-up for the upcoming homecoming football game.
