Homecoming royalty crowned


The Madisonville football team wasn’t able to pull out a win during Friday’s homecoming game vs. Rusk, but a pair of MHS teens went home winners.

Karla Villagrana was crowned Homecoming Queen during the halftime show, joining Homecoming King Dornell Crist, who was named earlier in the week during the school’s homecoming parade.

Villagrana and Crist were recognized during the halftime show along with other members of the Homecoming Court, including freshman princess Jaliyah Matthews, sophomore princess Cheyanne Snook, junior princess Shelby Ward, and queen candidates Tyana Brown, Audra Crocker, Lexi Leveston and Tra’Dayja Smith.

Seniors Jose’ Vera, Ellis Reyes and Darren Blakley also were in the running for homecoming king.

Homecoming Week included traditional festivities, such as a district-wide pep rally, parade, bonfire and carnival.
