As the sun set across the Lenoir City Football Field, the night had yet to begin. On September 8th, Lenoir City’s annual Homecoming game took place. Each year, a group of Senior girls are chosen based on their peer’s votes and their involvement within LCHS. This year’s Senior court consisted of Ruthie Davis, Sara Jane Weber, Poppy Lowery, Alison Stigall, Lauren Scarlett, Avery Shoemaker, Caylie Adams, Shelsy Pineda, Maggie Tate, and Aubrey Robbins. 

“I was very surprised upon hearing I was on the homecoming court, but I was also very excited because I was with such a good group of girls,” Davis said.

As the homecoming game neared half-time, the crowd watched anxiously as the homecoming court walked out with their escorts, anticipating who would be crowned Queen. 

“When I walked out on the field I was feeling nervous but excited to have the opportunity of being on court. What was mostly going through my mind was ‘Don’t trip, don’t trip!’ But everything went smoothly and I wouldn’t change anything about that night,” Pineda said.

Finally, after all the girls had been announced and introduced, the most thrilling part of the night arrived. The crowning of the Queen. The girls smiled at the occasional camera popping up to take photos of them, and they smiled at each other as well. The announcer asked for a drum roll, and the excited crowd delivered. This year’s winner was announced to be Poppy Lowery! The crowd erupted into cheers and applause. 

Regardless of the winner, each of these students has worked extremely hard throughout their high school career and they each deserved to be noticed for their efforts. Congratulations to Poppy Lowery once again, for being crowned Lenoir City Homecoming’s 2023 winner!
