A tropical homecoming
Ennis High School fills weekend with festivities
ENNIS—Balmy late-summer weather matched Ennis High School’s homecoming theme of a tropical luau: parade floats on Friday, September 7 featured palm trees, leis and water guns on an 80-degree afternoon. Students from kindergarten to the class of 2019 took over Main Street to celebrate the last vestiges of summer and kicked off the school year in the most enthusiastic manner possible.
The Mustangs had enjoyed a week of spirit days leading up to Friday’s parade—from “meme day” to “wacky outfit day”—and the homecoming football game against the Tri-City Titans.
And while they channeled their sunniest attitude and the stadium was a forest of Mustang green, they got burned on the field, falling 48-26 in a lopsided game against the Hobson team.
But regardless of the loss, excitement remained high as students enjoyed a homecoming dance on Saturday night, September 8. They made the end of the summer one to remember, and from the looks of the crowds at the parade and football game, most of the Ennis community helped them to do it.
