Wildcat Homecoming

Pajama-wearing students ushered in Spirit Week Tuesday at Oak Harbor High School.

It was a way to get into the swing of the week’s worth of festivities that culminates with Friday’s homecoming game against Lake Stevens and Saturday’s homecoming dance.

Each day brings a different theme during the special week at the school. Today is Sports Day, which is followed by Crazy Day and culminates with Wildcat Pride Day on Friday.

In addition to the football game, the all school talent show takes place tonight, Wednesday, Oct. 10 from 7 to 9 p.m.

“We have 14 phenomenal acts,” said Starlette Casey, ASB advisor at the high school. Those acts include dance troupes, live bands and comedy. Tickets cost $5 with an ASB card and $10 without one.

Casey said members from the class of 1982 will attend the Hootenanny along with what is sure to be a packed house of students.

Members of the ASB leadership class were busy Tuesday morning painting banners and setting up decorations for the week’s events.

Because the stadium is now located on the high school campus, changes were made to the traditional Snake Dance, which went from the high school to the old War Memorial Stadium. Now known as “Pride Your Ride” each class can enter up to two vehicles. The students will decorate the cars and parade them from the old stadium to the new Wildcat Memorial Stadium.

The school’s cheerleaders are sponsoring the parade.

Kickoff for Friday’s game is 7 p.m. The homecoming game looks to be a competitive one for the undefeated and fifth-ranked Wildcats. Lake Stevens is currently in second place in the WesCo North with a record of 4-1.

The homecoming dance, titled “A Night on the City,” takes place Saturday, Oct. 13 from 10 p.m. to midnight.
