Homecoming and PSAT keep students busy


October 20, 1998|By Nancy Gallant | Nancy Gallant,SPECIAL TO THE SUN

SOME DAYS THERE are more things to do than can possibly be done in 24 hours. Saturday was that kind of day for area teen-agers.

In the morning, hundreds of high school students took the PSAT. The exam is recommended as good practice for the SAT. And for juniors, it is the first stage in a national scholarship competition.

Students who weren't busy in an exam hall traveled to Crofton Parkway for the Arundel High School homecoming parade. Led by the Arundel High band, the parade included a variety of floats and school groups with lots of pep, lots of cheers and lots of good music.

The parade and the PSAT were barely over before it was time for the football game.

Arundel came through with a solid 28-20 win over Old Mill High School. But a lot of the girls couldn't watch the whole game because they had appointments with hairdressers and manicurists.

Finally, it was time for the big event, the Homecoming Dance. Organized by the Student Government Association under the leadership of president Joanna Woronkowicz, this year's dance was dubbed "A Fairy Tale Evening."

Students replaced their usual attire of jeans T-shirts and sneakers with suits, dresses and high heels as the high school gym was the place to be.

Seniors Rachel Upton and Norris Roy reigned as Homecoming Queen and King. Members of their court were juniors Jon Tippett and Brittany Sondberg, sophomores Rodney Spriggs and Andrea Mack and freshmen Justin Tippett and Sarah Adcock.

Another homecoming

Archbishop Spalding High School in Severn also held its homecoming Saturday.

Spalding's football players had a lot to celebrate with a 31-6 victory over the visitors from Archbishop Curley in Baltimore. And celebrate they did at their homecoming dance.

Homecoming King Chris Masters and Queen Caroline Petrovich presided over the party with a Hawaiian theme, ably assisted by Jester John Nolan.

Other members of the homecoming court were juniors Dave Tikeppe and Ashley Bradley; sophomores Ryan Chitwood and Katie Parsons and freshmen James DeSaultels and Nicole White.
