Demons celebrate homecoming

-A A +A

Williamstown High School celebrated the new year with their annual homecoming night on Jan. 5. Students from the middle and high schools were selected to represent their respective classes in the night’s homecoming court, each vying for the winning title.


The Williamstown Demons basketball team faced Villa Madonna with the hope of starting the calendar year with a win. Despite showing significant improvements midway through the season, the Demons were unable to secure a win. Their overall season record is 2-12.

The first quarter ended 21-10 with the score at halftime being 37-19. Ultimately, the Demons were able to gain some momentum in the second half and tighten the final score to 76-55.

For those Williamstown students who were crowned with homecoming titles, the night was far more successful. From the middle school court, Lexi Luna was crowned Jr. Princess while Brennan Stanley, who started in Saturday’s varsity basketball game as a seventh grader was named Jr. Prince.
Sophomore Kristine Robertson was crowned Homecoming princess along with Junior Jordyn Barnes who was named Prince.

Senior Morgan Potter was named Homecoming queen and Senior Alec Dalton was named Homecoming king.

The Demons have two major games in the next week, first facing Walton-Verona at home Jan. 10 with the varsity game beginning at 7:30 p.m. The Demons will then meet the Grant County Braves for the second time this season on Jan. 14 at WHS in the third Coaches vs. Cancer game, where a portion of the night’s proceeds are donated to the Grant County Relay For Life.
