Homecoming Court ‘07
by Leah Fry, Advertising Coordinator/Staff Writer
Homecoming has come and gone once again here at West Geauga, and the court was again named and a queen honored. The top five girls who comprised the court were Kathleen Dolphin, Susan Hanover, Grace Komar, Martha Smith, and Caitlin Wajahn. The other five girls that made top ten were Hayley Ebersbacher, Sarina Delzoppo, Liz Poucher, Bridgette Drockton, and Jane Frires. The top five were paraded through town sitting atop the back of a convertible with their escort. The escorts were Lucas Koen, Colin Ecker, Anthony Angelotta, Zak Poucher, and Phil Sheaman.
The air was crisp and their hands were cold, the girls were introduced to the crowd on the arm of their escort and then their parents. Their speeches were read at the October 12th football game against Orange following the parade through the streets of Chesterland. Everyone awaited the results and got their cameras ready. The winner was Grace Komar, and all of the other girls were excited for her. Congratulations Grace, and the rest of the top five and top ten.
