After over a year of distance learning and isolations due to the pandemic, Liberty Ranch High School Hawks set their sights on the world as they celebrated their 2021 homecoming last week with the theme of “Hawks Go Global”.

During the traditional spirit week, Hawks dressed up for different themes each day. Students trekked to school in pajamas on Monday, as they celebrated the theme “Off to the Airport”. Tuesday, students dressed up as tacky tourists, while Wednesday, students wore togas or dressed in all white, for “White Out Day”. Thursday, students celebrated “Disney Day in Paris”, and Friday, students were clad in school colors, green and silver, for “Coming Home”.

Each weekday was packed with various events and activities, including dodge ball on the lawn, powder puff football, lunch on the lawn, and volleyball, spike ball and corn hole contests. Friday, students ventured outside to watch the homecoming parade filled with various floats, which were then presented at the football game later that evening.

Homecoming royalty were featured during the parade, with the top five princesses and top five princes eagerly waiting for the final announcement of who would be crowned the 2021 queen and king.

The top five princesses were Jamie Martin, Karlee Furtado, Kayla Quintana, Kyla Pearson and Kylie Valencia.

The top five princes were Armando Perez, Austin Smith, Cole Parker, Eli Sorosinski and Michael Gale.

The 2021 Liberty Ranch High School homecoming king and queen were Armando Perez and Kylie Valencia.

Liberty Ranch Hawk football battled Rosemont High School Wolverines (see page 9 for full story), and despite a heart wrenching loss, the Hawks came together to enjoy the annual homecoming dance on Saturday.
