Mother Nature did her best to cause chaos for Reed City’s Snowcoming schedule. Basketball games had to be rescheduled for Saturday afternoon, which interfered with many of the student’s plans. Unfortunately due to these changes, the usual announcing of the Snowcoming Court did not occur during halftime at the Varsity boy’s game for family and friends to see. Even though this was a bit of disappointment for those being honored, it was definitely made up for with the cheers of their fellow students as they were announced during the Snowcoming Dance. Beautifully decorated with lights and snowflakes, the high school cafeteria and hallways once again was transformed into party central for students. It was clear with the large turnout that Mother Nature did not win.
There was a win, however, that night as Snowcoming King and Queen were announced. The anticipation was unbearable for the row of seniors when Mr. Hoppes moved the crown several times among them before finally crowning the winners. Ryan Leonard and Amanda Steig couldn’t hide their excitement when the crowns touched their heads. Both seniors have been very achieved in sports and academics during their high school years and had much to say about their night.
