  On Saturday October 20, West High hosted its annual Homecoming dance. The theme was “City of Stars”, and ASB decorated the gym with a Hollywood sign and lights that shined stars on the walls.

  The DJ played a variety of songs, from recent hits to older ones, as well as line dances.

 Some students hung out on the second level of the gym to eat snacks or rest after dancing below. They were also given the option to enjoy the outside seating, as it gave them a place to rest and take pictures in the cool night air.

  This year’s Homecoming King and Queen were Jason Tinti and Ashley Takasaki. The couple were very happy to have won together.

  Tinti said, “I was very happy to win as I was able to join my girlfriend in the King and Queen dance. It meant a lot to have that moment with her and I will never forget winning as a couple.”

  Takasaki was surprised she won Homecoming Queen, as she feels the other girls in the top five were very deserving of the title. Takasaki attributes her win to her involvement here at West.

  She said, “I think I got Homecoming Queen because I’m active in school. I’m a part of ASB and cheer, which led me to get a lot of support from my friends within those activities.” Takasaki expressed appreciation for those who have supported her in becoming Homecoming Queen.

 

Homecoming was a much appreciated opportunity for many friends to have fun together with their friends.
