Winter Royalty King and Queen crowned at halftime of the boys basketball game against Olathe East

Seniors Maddox Casella and Violet Hentges were crowned King and Queen Friday, Feb. 2

Playing Olathe East, the boys basketball team pulls off a 60-55 victory to stay undefeated in the den. During halftime of the game, seniors Maddox Casella and Violet Hentges were crowned Winter Royalty King and Queen.

Each candidate wore a Winter Royalty sash decorated for them by elementary school students. Casella describes the experience and why he enjoyed it.

“All the candidates got to go to Clear Creek Elementary to meet with some of the students there so they could draw on our sashes,” Casella said. ”I was lucky enough to have a young girl named Kinley draw on my sash. She was super sweet and kind and I loved being able to spend some time with the kids.”

Surprised by her win, Hentges explains how she is thankful for all those who voted for her.

“When my name was called I was just in shock. I was very surprised because I was not expecting it at all,” Hentges said. ”Thank you so much to anyone who voted for me. I am grateful for all of you.”

Feeling gratitude towards those who have been there for him, Casella explains why he appreciates being nominated.

“It was pretty exciting, I haven’t been picked to do something like this ever so it was really cool being able to experience everything,” Casella said. ”I feel honored to have been picked as king and I truly appreciate each and every vote. You guys are all amazing.”

Reflecting on the week as a whole, Hentges expresses how much she enjoyed the experience.

“The best part about all of this was the memories I got to make,” Hentges said. “This experience would’ve been just as awesome even if I didn’t win. It was just such a fun week with awesome people.”
