Two cheerleaders, a mascot, swim team, band, track, and speech and debate members make up Douglas High School’s 2016 homecoming court.

In order to qualify as a nominee the students must have a good academic standing and respectable conduct. Out of approximately 439 seniors, the twelve are honored to be nominated.

“It’s a great honor that shows you are respected among your peers and are well known not just through your academics but as a person throughout the school,” the court agreed.

The nominees will battle for the crown with a dance off, using songs chosen and choreographed by each couple, at the homecoming football game during half time.

“We have such a variety of students as nominees and it has been fun to get to know each other and our different interests and involvement with the school,” said nominee Nicole Epper.

The court agreed that the journey of being nominated and working together as couples, and as a group has been a pleasurable experience and they are looking forward to the dance off. They said it will be fun to compete with their peers in such a way and to see which couple will represent their class as homecoming king and queen.

The Douglas High School football homecoming game will be 7 p.m. Sept. 30. Cost, $6, general, $4 students.
