MONTE VISTA — Sargent High School’s 2021 Homecoming was a magical week and one for the — story — books. The theme for this year was “Night in Neverland,” and students participated in events throughout the week.
It was a special year, returning to almost normalcy after the interesting homecoming events the prior year. The week was filled with powder puff games, the bonfire, and the homecoming football game.
For Sargent, the senior class dominated the homecoming festivities. The senior boys and girls won their respective powder puff games.
Thanks to the Monte Vista Fire Department, the bonfire was a “flaming” success and brought in lots of community participation.
The football game was also a community event, but not without its issues. The Farmers were unsure if they were even going to have a game as their original opponent was unable to play.
However, you cannot hide that Farmer Pride, and the team persevered, going up against the Las Animas Trojans. It was a special night, especially when the players, from both teams, knelt to pray after the game.
Sargent also paid a special tribute to 9/11 and other recent tragedies the country and state have faced.
It would not be a Sargent Homecoming without Homecoming Royalty. The 2021 court looked stunning under the bright lights.
The freshmen attendants were Makayla Brown and Danyy Willis, sophomore attendants were Saige Hostetter and Westen Burkhart, and junior attendants were Megan Peterson and Burke Temple.
The six senior attendants were Gabby Jones and Antonio Martinez, Kamryn Holland and Raultio Garcia, and Mary Willis and Conner Holmes. The Sargent High School 2021 Homecoming King and Queen were Connor Holmes and Mary Willis.
