Moffat County Homecoming week scheduled for late September

Craig Press Staff Report

Moffat County High School football players line up against Basalt during a snowy 2017 game. MCHS will host the Longhorns Sept. 29 for Homecoming week, a game which will take place Saturday afternoon rather than Friday night.

Moffat County High School announced this week that its Homecoming festivities will take place earlier than usual this fall.

MCHS Homecoming week runs from Sept. 24 to 29 rather than early to mid-October.

Another change in the week is hosting the football game Saturday afternoon rather than the traditional Friday evening.

A letter from Principal Kyle York, Assistant Principal Sarah Hepworth and Athletic Director Bobby Howard stated that the Saturday scheduling was done to accommodate the football team’s opponent that week, Basalt.

With football on the road the first two weeks of October, hosting Homecoming later in the month was considered, though administrators opted to use the week to highlight all sports as well as avoid the likelihood of poor weather later in the fall.

The majority of the fall sports teams also have events the last week of September, including home games for boys soccer and volleyball and the home meet for the cross country program.

“We here at Moffat County School District want our students and community to have the most pleasurable experiences possible, therefore we are staying with the September 29th date,” the letter read.

The Saturday night dance is also planned to conclude the festivities. Administrators and students will determine more details about Homecoming closer to the big week.
