by Randy O. Olson

The annual Homecoming festivities at West Central Area schools are kicked off on Monday, September 20, when the Secondary School Auditorium will host the Homecoming Coronation at 7:30pm. TV viewing will be available if the room is packed, and spectators are encouraged to arrive early for good seats.

A host of athletic events are on tap next week, with the following Knights' events at home - Tuesday A/JV/B volleyball vs. Breckenridge at 6:00 and 7/8 volleyball vs. Fergus Falls at 4:30/5:30. Thursday 7/8 football vs. Parkers Prairie at 4:30/5:30, A/JV/B volleyball vs. Frazee at 6:00, 7/8 volleyball vs. Ashby at 4:00/5:00, Varsity tennis vs. Fergus Falls at 4:30. Friday varsity football vs. Wadena-Deer Creek at 6:00, with the WCA Band Field Show at halftime. Saturday volleyball hosts a JV/B squad tournament beginning at 9:00am.

WCA Student Council advisor Donna Caneen reported about the Homecoming activities, “The week will consist of quite a bit of ‘hoopla’ with dress up days including a new favorite ‘Generation Day’ where students will either dress as a ‘baby’, a ‘young child’ or a more distinguished older person. We also will have Friday as our Spirit Day and will encourage red/black/silver for WCA colors. Also, remember to wear black to Friday’s football game to create our black out!”

Also on Friday, during last hour there will be a Cheerleader-led Pep Fest which always brings out some fantastic entertainment!

The Homecoming Dance will follow the game at the Barrett Pavilion.

It will run from 9:00 until Midnight. The cost is $5.00, but WCA seniors are reminded that their admission is free!
