Homecoming 2014

EugeneStudents and parents welcomed home alumni, family, and friends of Sacred Heart last Friday for the culmination of the Homecoming Week. During the week the 7-12th grade participated in a variety of dress up themed days—Billy Bob Day, Twin Day, Generations Day, Spirit Day, and Dress Up Day. The week ended with Mass, Coronation, pep fest, and football game.

Coronation followed the morning Mass, concelebrated by Fr. Greg Haman , parochial vicar at St. Michael’s church, and Fr. Adam Hamness, parochial vicar at Sacred Heart. New this year was the attendance of other members of “The Royal Court.” Past Homecoming Queens, football players, and coaches from 1948 to the present were honored during the coronation festivities.

Congratulations to the 2014 Homecoming Court! Marina O’Leary was crowned 2014 Homecoming Queen. Senior Attendants: Megan Ogaard and Erin Hylden. Junior Attendants: Hannah Reimer and Emily Devine. Escorts: Ed Bushaw, Chris Devine, Noah Anderson, Brandon Kassa, Brent Steenerson, and Grant Walski.


Polk County West fell to Stephen-Argyle during Friday’s Football game 54-7. PCW hung around through the second and third quarters, outscoring the Storm 7-6 in the middle quarters — the Polk County touchdown coming on a 42-yard Riley Wavra run.
