The Ste. Genevieve R-II School District celebrated its 2019 homecoming last week as students had dress-up days, cheered on their sports teams and celebrated with the community in the homecoming parade.

After Spirit Night on Wednesday, October 2, students cheered on the junior and senior girls during the annual Powderpuff game, which ended with a score of 13-12 in favor of the seniors.

During the high school pep assembly Friday afternoon, Bryce Trollinger, son of Wes and Stacy Trollinger, was crowned the Ste. Genevieve High School’s homecoming king.

Other members of the court were: freshman attendant Aiden Boyer, sophomore attendant Vincent Wittu, junior attendant Zachary Burr, and king candidates Evan Walker, Alex DeRousse, Austin Kuehn, Logan Gegg and Coy Briant Flieg.

Josie Geisner, daughter of Jeff and Jolene Geisner, was crowned the Ste. Genevieve High School’s homecoming queen Friday night during the coronation ceremony at halftime of the football game against Perryville High School, which the Dragons won 42-27.

Other members of the court were queen candidates Julia McKlin, Megan Schweigert, Sierra Zerwig, Ella Reed, Jaida Greminger, junior attendant Addie Taylor, sophomore attendant Haley Clanton, and freshman attendant Lani Yamnitz.

This year, Ella Schweiss and Rowan Weik were the miniature cheerleader and football player at the game.

Also during halftime, the classes of 1994, 1979 and 1969 were welcomed and recognized.

And joining the Ste. Genevieve Marching Dragons this year for the first time was the Ste. Genevieve High School alumni band. The bands presented a selection from the 2019 show, Panic at the Disco’s High Hopes.

The winners of the week’s various competitions were also recognized during the game. The freshman class was awarded the Most Spirited during Friday’s pep assembly.

The winners of the float competition were: first, juniors; second, seniors; third, sophomores; and fourth, freshmen.

The festivities concluded with the homecoming dance, held in the Peggy J. Johnson Gymnasium on Saturday night.
