Aurelia High School celebrated their Homecoming the week of September 24 -28.

Following a week of "theme days" for students, on Thursday evening, following the Homecoming parade and Pep Rally, the homecoming king and queen were announced.

For the second consecutive year, the Aurelia students named a King Andrew and Queen Kayla. Last year's royal couple, Kayla Ballantyne and Andrew Perry, were back for the festivities, and crowned their successors, Kayla Anderson and Andrew Sandine, to cap Thursday's activities.

The following night, the Bulldogs took on the Hawks in exciting, fast-paced eight-man football.

See the Sports section for the results and highlights.
