South Plains College celebrated homecoming Thursday night at the Texan Dome. The Lady Texans overcame the Lady Wranglers 56-55 and the Texans outlasted Texas Western College 73-67.
At halftime, Mckenzie Lee and Caden Lamb with the Baptist Student Ministry were crowned homecoming king and queen by last year’s king and queen, Brayan Hernandez and Hailee Brewer. The homecoming dance was held following the games at the Sundown Room on the Levelland campus.
Josh Meredith, director of student life at SPC, said homecoming was a success with great student participation and said that the number of clubs and organizations participating has grown, as well.
“This year we’ve seen tremendous growth in the number of clubs and number of students participating in clubs,” Meredith said. “The homecoming festivities are a fun and exciting way to celebrate the success of these clubs and the lifelong impact they’ll have on students.”
Meredith said the student life office strives to provide fun activities for students to participate in to not only learn about the college, but also to build relationships with other students who are going through the same experiences as them.
“Student life strives to be an office that provides all students a chance to connect and grow,” Meredith said. “Student clubs and organizations are a huge part of that. Students can join out of a shared interest and make friends they’ll have for the rest of their lives.”
Other candidates for homecoming king and queen included: Marshall Bates, ANT Club; Marco Aguayo, Criminal Justice Club; MIchael Ramos, STAR Center; Extevan Trevino, Catholic Student Ministry; Noah Lopez, Student Government Association; Hailey Castellano, Catholic Student Ministry; Kristina Long, Illustration Club; Cristynah Garza, Criminal Justice Club; Mallary Blocker, Campus AMbassadors; Aliana Gonzales, SPC Cheerleaders; Lizbeth Medrano, STAR Center; Ambrosia Martin, Texan Hype; and Marleigh Alvarado, Student Government Association.
