Homecoming is a great fall tradition at The Mount. During homecoming week students and staff dressed according to a different theme each day. Blackout was Friday’s game day theme and everyone dressed in black.
One of the weekday highlights every year is the bonfire (Photos) held on Wednesday evening after family night visits. The Waterloo fire department was on hand to keep the flames in check! During the bonfire the coaches for each of the fall sports, tennis, cross country, and football, presented their senior leaders and said a few words on their seasons so far.
On Friday, the final prep rally took place in the gym led by Mount Michael’s yell leaders. (Photos)
During halftime of the football game the “First Knight” was announced. The First Knight award is given to the senior nominee chosen by a vote of the entire student body and faculty. The final three nominees and their parents are presented to the crowd before the announcement. The three nominees included: Temi Adeyemo, Sebastian Cardenas, and Patrick Collins.
