September must be parade month in Holly, as for the second time in less than a week, Holly’s streets were filled with spectators, bands and floats.
Holly High School celebrated Homecoming week last week with a spirit theme of “The Hunger Games,” based on the wildly popular books and movies about a dystopian future and life-and-death survival competition.
It was all fun and games, though, for the students as the classes competed during spirit week in various dress-up and other competitions. The week kicked off with the Senior girls winning the 2015 Powder Puff football contest, naming senior Madison Brack MVP.
The week culminated on Friday night with the annual homecoming parade, a march through Holly lasting nearly an hour, featuring the Homecoming court, Marching Band and Broncho sports teams from Junior Bronchos football all the way to Varsity.
The Broncho Class of 1985 were on hand and recognized for their 30 year reunion.
The Broncho gridders faced off against the Kearsley Hornets in what ended in a defensive rout, 42-12. At halftime, seniors Michelle Major and Javon Barr were named Homecoming King and Queen, and while the sophomore class won the Float competition, it was the seniors who were the Homecoming champions winning every spirit week event on their way to victory.
