Homecoming was very successful. Once again for the third year in a row the Yearbook did not win the best float competition. What is the matter with those judges? Can't they see talent that is right in front of them? Here is Kennan with some of his buddies at the street rally.
The picture above is what the sophomore girls think about being around boys later in the evening. And the one below is McKenzie just learning how to spell her name. Notice how she spelled the "z"? Very good McKenzie!!
The week long celebrations were fun. For Thursday night, the juniors lit the bon fire by shooting flaming arrows into it.
I was up on the hill watching with Coach Dayton and Coach Linford and it was pretty cool where we were. Since Brady's senior year I have gone up on the hill to video and take pictures of the senior football players lighting the "C". It is fun to be up there with the four football coaches, coaches I feel are the best in the state or any where. I look up to each one of them.
After the "C" was lit, we three stayed to make sure the fire wouldn't get away and burn the hill down. We even had fire extinguishers. Linford's fire extinguisher didn't work and Dayton's was like a cloud when he used it. When things were calm, we walked back up to the truck and Dayton put his extinguisher in the back of the truck, and it went off and sprayed the whole back of the truck before he was able to put it out. It was so funny. Here is a picture of the sophomore class on Thursday night. Typical boys, trying to impress people with their thinking ability.
The next day during the program, they celebrated Coach Keith Nate's receiving a gold card. It is an honor that the WHSAA gives to coaches or people who have exemplified many years of service in their coaching. It was broadcasted via the internet. I hope you were able to watch some of it. The parade was good and short. The football game was fun and exciting. The boys won 42-0 over Wyoming Indian. Here is Sullivan Teichert breaking into the open for a long td run.
Here is a picture of the crowd at half time. Does it bring back memories?
Wyoming Indian is a team of the future. They have a lot of young players who will be pretty good down the road. The volleyball game was pretty good also. Kemmerer wanted revenge on us, but it wasn't even that close. The JV won pretty easily and the varsity also won pretty convincingly. And of course, later on the dance was held. It was kind of funny because after about two hours of dancing, everybody went home with still and hour left for dancing. It was a great week-end.
Kandyce came home to watch McKenzie play. I didn't even recognize her, she was wearing a hat.
Mom took a bunch of pictures of Kandyce. Here is one that I liked.
Breanne also came up on Saturday to take Violet Teichert's announcement pictures and also her wedding dress pictures. I'm sure Breanne will post some of them on her blog page. Check them out, Violet looks really good.
McKenzie played in the varsity game as a defensive specialist/server. Her serves have gotten pretty good. She was asked by Rowland Briggs to wear his football jersey. No, it isn't anything serious. He likes one of her best friends. Speaking of jersey's, I guess over at the elementary there was a lot of drama about who was going to wear whose jersey. One little fourth grader said that he only plays pee wee football and he only has one jersey and he didn't really want to give the girl his jersey because he wanted to wear it. Personal opinion, bag the jersey stuff until you are in high school and even then, why?
Kennan had a bit of a disappointment this week. He didn't play a lot in the football game against Star Valley. They didn't have a "B" team because they brought their big 8th graders. Cokeville got beat by only 4 points, but the coaches were not going to play the small 6th graders against the big 8th grade. Star Valley was suppose to bring their 7th grade team so they could play a "B" game. Coach Linford wasn't too happy about what Star Valley did, but he was proud of how the team played.
Ellen is being busy taking pictures of people. The trees are changing colors and it is really pretty here. She went with Breanne to help her take pictures of Violet.
Bill is Bill. By the way, if there is anything that you want to watch via the internet from Channel 39, let me know and I will set it up for what ever time that you want. You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to let me know and I'll see what I can do. This Wednesday will be the last home volleyball game for Cokeville. We will be playing Rich County. Should be a good match. Stay tune and I'll have things ready to show.
One other bit of news. My sister from Alaska came down for a visit. She wanted to stay for the homecoming activities, but she wasn't able to get that much time off from her work. She came over to the school and Ellen took a picture of her and my mom and me.
So now you get to see me. Aren't you lucky?
