The parade featured local police and fire departments, student groups and athletic teams. Later that evening, the football team shut out Mound Westonka for a 28-0 homecoming victory. Other Spartan teams also earned homecoming wins earlier in the week including the boys’ and girls’ soccer teams and the girls’ swimming and diving squad. See page 8 for sports stories. Homecoming week began at the district Oct. 1. with the coronation of Hannah Deters as queen and Noah Schultz as king.
