Homecoming 2014 was celebrated in fine style in Avon last week as festivities were culminated with the crowning of King Drew Dudukovich and Queen Alexandria Darus before Friday’s football game against North Ridgeville.
The seniors took the field together as attendants and were then surprised with the great news that they were now homecoming royalty.
Homecoming Court is a big event in Avon, a point of community pride and unity. Named to this year’s homecoming court were freshmen attendants Claudia Hermann and Cole Bramhall, sophomore attendants Gabrielle Laboy and William Kocar, junior attendants Erin Conn and Alex Rimko, senior JVS Attendants Alyssa Tabar and Jerimias Fuentes, and senior attendants Cassidy Clark and Cory Ohradznsky, Katie Shusta and Wes Ford, Samantha Saghy and Charlie Erlenbach as well as Nicole Hubbard and Ryan Sikora.
The event signified months of work by the high school community that pulled together to create a week of memorable events. Some great memories were created indeed, especially for Drew and Alexandria, who were very excited to not only be named to the court but crowned King and Queen.
