A large crowd gathered at the gym on Friday evening, November 14, to watch the annual homecoming festivities. The Sloan-Hendrix Greyhounds would be facing the Pangburn Tigers. Sloan-Hendrix set the tone for the evening with a 56-39 win over Pangburn’s junior boys.

Immediately following the junior game, the homecoming court was presented. Malachi Gott and Hannah Griffin were the openers for the evening. They introduced the presenters, Destiny Dail and Breanna Gosha; and the master and mistress of ceremonies, Kyle Murphy and Natalie Gipson. Kyle and Natalie introduced the players and the maids and their escorts.

Before the introduction of the maids, Mary Ponder and Natalie Gipson presented Mrs. Morgan, student council advisor, with a gift.

Junior high maids included Madison Broadway, seventh grade, who was escorted by Dominick Folk; Emily Luffman, eighth grade, who was escorted by Koby Jones; and Caylea Johnson, freshman maid, escorted by Shayne Dill. Senior high maids were then introduced. The sophomore maid, Karmyn Gray, was escorted by Carter Vance; junior maid, Jessie Powell, was escorted by Nathan DeShazo; and senior maid, Jessica Smith was escorted by Levi Yarbro.

The moment everyone had been waiting for was at hand; the crowning of the queens. Junior high queen was Caylea Johnson and senior high queen was Jessie Powell. Flowers and crowns were presented to each queen by Destiny Dail and Breanna Gosha.

Following the ceremony and pictures, action resumed on the basketball court with the senior Greyhounds facing Pangburn. A close score at halftime, 31-28, was no indication of what was in store for Pangburn during second half action. The Greyhounds outscored the Tigers 46-24 during the final quarters of the game for a 77-52 conference win. High-point men for the evening were Tyler Murphy with 21 points, Kyle Murphy with 20, and Matt Wilkins with 19. The Lady Greyhounds played a close game, taking the lead on a free throw by Brittany Gosha with only 12 seconds remaining in the game. Forcing Pangburn into a turnover and a foul put Bailey Bradley on the line. She sank a free throw with three seconds remaining on the clock to help seal the victory over Pangburn with a score of 50-48. Alyssa Nichols was leading scorer with 13 points and Maegan Brown contributed 10.
