Homecoming 2023: King and Queen crowned at halftime of football game against Gardner Edgerton

Seniors Lucy Roy and Blake Powers were crowned King and Queen

Capping off the end of homecoming week, the football team met the Gardner Edgerton Blazers at home for the annual homecoming game and coronation Friday, Sept. 23. The Jaguars fought hard but came up short of the win with a final score of 49-10. At halftime of the game seniors Blake Powers and Lucy Roy were crowned Homecoming King and Queen. 

Quick to share his love for the Valley and his fellow students, Powers describes his feelings towards the Homecoming parade and pep assembly. 

“I was a little nervous because I didn’t know who was going to be there but it was nice to see the community cheering for me,” Powers said. “I had tons of fun making a dance with Lucy and getting to do it in front of the whole school.”

Addressing those who voted for her, Roy explains why she is thankful for her fellow classmates.

“To the students that voted for me, I thank you from the bottom of my heart,” Roy said. “I have been blessed with incredible opportunities at Mill Valley, and am so thankful for everyone that has allowed me to experience them and rooted for me.”

Powers describes how he felt when he was announced as Homecoming King.

“At first I was really shocked and then once it hit me I got really excited,” Powers said. “Especially because my whole family was standing right outside the track cheering for me.”

Reflecting on the moment she was announced as Queen, Roy shares all of the emotions she was experiencing. 

“When I was announced as queen, it honestly didn’t feel real. It happened so fast, especially since I was the last candidate announced,” Roy said. “I was so excited I had won and being able to hug my parents and sisters who were crying tears of joy and excitement for me was a very special moment I will cherish forever.”
