Tesoro Olympics: Going for the Gold
Tesoro’s 2012 Homecoming was a complete success! Starting with the Homecoming Pep Rally, the enthusiasm and spirit for that night’s football game was officially sparked. That night, the high energy, creative halftime show filled every minute of the twenty minute time slot with Tesoro Olympic spirit and memories. Even with the essential lighting of the torch by Dr. Burch to a parade of Corvette’s escorting each girl on the Homecoming Court, the highlight of the whole show was definitely the unity and spirit of over 500 students on the field.
After the homecoming court arrived in Corvette’s down the track, the winner was announced. Denae Luce was crowned Homecoming Queen. To start the “Olympics”, Dr. Burch ran onto the field to light the cauldron and when that was lit, the games had begun. As the lights went out and the lasers went on, the Olympic aspect was definitely started. Even with the freshman class as reporters, the sophomores as fans, and the juniors as trainers, the most enthusiastic “best senior dance ever” was put on that night. Over 200 seniors wearing all black walked onto the field, waving and kissing their newly received gold medals. When the music dropped, the glowsticks went up. In a pitch black stadium, blue and red glow sticks moved in unison and were eventually thrown up into the air. As the music changed, so did the seniors. They took off their black clothing and represented their newly attained gold status with their gold jumpsuits. For the last formation and symbol of unity, the four class intermixed to form the five Olympic rings on the field. And to top off the unforgettable halftime show, the Tesoro Titan football team pulled out a victory over Chaparral High School remaining undefeated!
On Saturday, after a night full of rest, the Titans were ready for another crazy, memory filled night. The Homecoming Dance. With dancing, games, snacks, and even more dancing, the Tesoro Titans went crazy throughout the night. Jim Ragsdale was crowned King and shared a dance with the lovely Homecoming Queen, Denae Luce. With over 1400 students dancing to the music put on by DJ Kris and N-Effect, the Homecoming dance was perfect ending to a weekend full of energy and spirit.
