Homecoming festivities continued Wednesday night when Ronin Contreras and Natalie Hewey were named Homecoming King and Homecoming Queen during the Night Rally. 

“It’s surreal, I feel like,” Hewey said.  

Contreras echoed the same emotions after his name was announced.  

“I agree, it’s something that I did not really expect, but now that I’m here, I’m very happy for this,” Contreras said. 

According to Contreras, it has been a long road from freshman year with quarantine and school at home to things feeling more normal as his senior year continues.  

“It’s kind of crazy to think that it all started online and now were here,” Contreras explained. “Time went by quick.”  

The Homecoming Court and Club Sweethearts looked amazing as they walked across the red carpet at the 50-yard line of Wayne Schneider Stadium.  

 Freshman, Itzel Colin, loved seeing all the sweetheart’s outfits. 

 “The sweetheart’s outfits were amazing, and I liked how they all got dressed up,” Colin said. 

The Night Rally was full of dancing from different clubs, cheering, baton twirling and skits. Tracy High students showcased all their skills for the world to see.  

“All the hard work paid off and performances went well,” Kavin Satishkumar agreed.

While many of the events stood out, Colin said the fire-lit baton twirling by junior Emma Sawin took her breath away. According to Colin, it was a unique experience that she’d never seen before.  

“I’ve never seen anything like that before,” Colin continued. “It was really cool to see her set the batons on fire.” 

Rebecca Bedolla thought everything at the rally was very cool, especially with her older sister performing in the Latinos Unidos Club.  

“It was a great experience for me, and it was cool to see my sister perform,” Bedolla added.  

According to sophomore Asharee Reed, all the performances were a hit, especially the BSU skit she performed in.   

Sophomore Lucy Taufoou said it was good to see so many students participating and showing school spirit on Wednesday night.  

“Everybody showed a lot of spirit, and it was really fun,” Taufoou concluded.   

As usual, the Night Rally was a huge hit, displaying students’ ability to come together and illustrate their love and appreciation for Tracy High School.  

The Bulldogs football team host the Lincoln Trojans this Friday night at Wayne Schneider Stadium to conclude their 2023 Homecoming Week.
