Wednesday night also saw the football jersey auction, with Derrick Wilcox’s jersey earning the most money.

Seniors didn’t get to paint the ‘K’ during Homecoming week, but the Booster Club did have the Kemmerer icon lit for the football game. Students also held a car smash and bonfire, despite the cold weather.

Friday afternoon’s Homecoming parade was a big hit as floats decorated with Ranger pride made their way down Main Street. See the Gazette homepage for a slideshow of the Homecoming parade.

At halftime of Friday’s football game, Homecoming royalty, Grand Marshal Robert Gagliardi and Honorary Chairperson Kristi Magee were honored.

High school students enjoyed a Homecoming dance on Saturday night.

Although the football and volleyball teams didn’t get Homecoming victories, the community still showed up to support the Rangers all week long.
