The court included Emma Cordero ‘22, Katie Corner ‘22, Aidan Ayres ‘22, and Kody Hilsheimer ‘22. Addison Edmunds ‘21, Annie Flood ‘21, Evan Thomas ‘21, and Stephen Utter ‘21.

Kaia Alexander ‘19, Danielle Grassman ‘19, Kundai Kapurura ‘19, Eduardo Juarez-Alvarado ‘19, Kellan Goodman ‘19, and Israel Perez ‘19. The theme for the dance was “Under the Sea”.
On Sept. 28 South held an assembly to show the court and reveal the King and Queen on stage. While all the court members were walking to the stage retired weights teacher Rick Lacey announced some of the courts hobbies and preferences. At the very end of the assembly the winners of King and Queen were announced to be Israel Perez and Kundai Kupurura.
“Honestly I didn’t really care that much,” Israel Perez ‘19 said, “but I was grateful that people even voted for me. I didn’t really expect that I would win, I thought it was just like a joke.
“I was kind of surprised just because I didn’t really expect to be nominated in the first place. But I was kind of excited because its my senior year and it was a really good opportunity to have that memory,” said Kundai Kapurura ‘19.
At the dance DJ Rhino was in charge of the music and played a wide range of music genres including I Like It by Cardi B, Bad Bunny and J Balvin, and Drip Too Hard by Lil Baby and Gunna.
“The music was pretty good, but not the best,” said Annie Flood ‘21.
Another student thought differently. “I thought the music was terrible. Because this generation’s music is well, terrible.” Austin May ‘20.
Outside the dance floor there was a snack bar, where students could buy sodas and candy, put on by culinary. Students could also go to the photo booth and get their photos taken with their friends.
