Winters High School students went full-swing into their homecoming celebration last week. In addition to a week full of spirit events in preparation for the big homecoming game and Homecoming queen and king coronation, the traditional downtown rally was revived.

On Wednesday, the Senior Class was victorious in the annual Powderpuff game. The Powderpuff cheer squads also brought their A-games with their halftime performances. The final score was 26–14.

Students filled the intersection of Main and First Streets on Friday afternoon to participate in friendly class competitions. From spirit cheers to limbo techniques, WHS students were in full Warrior spirit.
