What Happens at Shadow… is a Homecoming Week to Remember

Lowriders, carrying members of the Homecoming court, lead the parade on Sept. 29, 2023.

The last week of September was all glamour, glitter, and games on Shadow’s campus.

Students and staff showed off their school pride during a Vegas-inspired Homecoming week. In the lead-up to the culminating football game and dance, Knights dressed up for theme days, played games at lunch, and attended a lively rally.

The week ended with a football game – including a halftime parade – and the much-anticipated dance.

On Friday night the Shadow football team took an early lead with a touchdown against Xavier Prep. Ultimately, the Knights experienced a tough loss with a final score of 30-7.

Greg “Trey” Hollis (‘24) took a lot of the responsibility for the outcome, saying the team would focus on better communication leading up to their next game.

As the quarterback, he said he recognizes the importance of encouraging the other players after a loss, especially the Homecoming game.

“When they put their heads down, I try to pick them back up,” he explained.

“I just try to keep going and make them feel better,” Hollis added.

Friday night had celebratory moments as well. The band, cheerleaders, and dance team performed at halftime.

Keeping with the Shadow tradition, classic cars and lowriders transported the Homecoming court around the track in the parade. Class floats followed, earning cheers from the home bleachers. Pedro Hernandez and Daniela Garcia, both seniors, were crowned Homecoming King and Queen.

For some students, the dance on Saturday was the best part of the week.

Nearly 700 Knights dressed up, took pictures, played casino-inspired games, and of course, danced, late into the night.

At the end of the night, Junior ASB President Priscilla Guajardo called the event a success.

“A lot of people had fun,” she said.

Adding, “My favorite part about the night was the Homecoming king and queen dance.”
