The Indian Lake High School Homecoming Court will represent their school during the Community Homecoming Parade and Pep Rally in downtown Russells Point on Thursday, Sept. 22, and at the homecoming football game Friday night, Sept. 23.
This is the first time Indian Lake has honored a full court of male and female representatives from each class, along with a king and queen.
The court is made up of Queen Paige Mefford and King Isaac Morrison, Senior Attendants Regan Ross and Creek Wischmeyer, Junior Attendants Massie Romanowski and Camdon Tuttle, Sophomore Attendants Halle Roby and Czar Dickson and Freshman Attendants Riley Ross and Cooper Hall.
The Russells Point Police Department and Indian Lake Schools invite families, neighbors and all Indian Lake Laker fans and alumni to line Main Street for the 14th annual Homecoming Parade.
The spirit-filled tradition begins at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, featuring dozens of floats showcasing Indian Lake student athletes, band members, local law enforcement, student organizations, staff and the 2022 Homecoming King and Queen, along with the Court.
Groups will hand out candy and other small prizes. The theme for this year’s Homecoming event is “Lakers Soar Over the Raiders!”
Each high school class and club will decorate their float in the call signs of pilots from the Top Gun movie “Maverick.”
In addition, establishments along the parade route are encouraged to decorate their exteriors. The ILHS Student Council will present an award for the business with the Best Spirit.
After the parade, Gathering Grounds hosts a Pep Rally in the gravel parking lot near the shop. Cheerleaders will introduce the coaches, fall athletes and the Homecoming Court.
There will be a DJ and dancing to get the students, players, parents and fans excited about the game against Ben Logan on Friday night at the ILHS Stadium.
Prior to the parade, Russells Point Police will close the west end of Main Street at 5 p.m.
Floats should approach the parade route from Township Road 239 at Midway. Students who are participating in the parade may be dropped off at the bike path pull-off at Township Road 239 or Paradise Island across from Indian Head Roadhouse.
