Wadsworth High celebrates Homecoming with annual football game and dance



Wadsworth High School celebrated homecoming weekend with the football game on October 7, and the homecoming dance on October 8.

WHS kicked off homecoming weekend with the varsity football team playing Austintown Fitch. The student section theme was blackout. By the end of the night, Wadsworth had lost 42-35 after four overtimes.

During halftime, seniors Solomon Callaghan and Julia Fortner were crowned homecoming king and queen, voted for by the students. Allie McCall, last year’s homecoming queen, came back to crown the winners.

Instead of using physical tickets to get into the dance like years past, WHS used online tickets that were sold for $16.50.

WHS held the homecoming dance in the gymnasium from 8-10:30 P.M. There, the students danced the night away.

“I think that this year’s homecoming was way better than last year’s,” junior Ashleigh Jones said. “It had better music.”

The theme of this year’s homecoming was neon disco. To decorate, student council set up handmade balloon arches, blew up balloons, put up neon lights and backdrops, and set up the coach check. There was a photographer where students had the opportunity to get their picture taken with their friends, and then printed for them to take. Students also could purchase snacks and drinks from the concession stands.

“Homecoming was so much fun,” freshman Cameran Halleck said. “The music was great and I can’t wait for winter formal with my friends.”
