Sophomores win float competition
first car
Anna Malone won the Best Decorated Automobile contest.


A light rain did not stop DCHS students from showing their Tiger Pride during Friday’s homecoming parade. The procession, which bypassed Northside and Smithville Elementary this year because of a bomb threat at SES, included Homecoming Queen Hannah Renea Walker and her court, the Fighting Tiger Band, floats, cars and trucks decorated by students, firefighters and law enforcement. A performance by the band and a pep rally on the courthouse square capped the event. The Sophomore Class float (shown) won first place in the float competition, while the Spanish Club took second. The Freshman Class claimed third place, fourth went to the Senior Class and the Junior Class placed fifth. Anna Malone won the Best Decorated Automobile contest, while Sam McMillen took second and Erin Perry was awarded third place.
