Tony Leiter and Hannah Page were crowned as the 2005 Homecoming King and Queen following a week of activities geared to generate spirit for homecoming. The new royal couple were revealed during half-time of the boys basketball game Saturday, Feb. 5, by the 2004 King Nic Kokos and Queen Candi Kuhnhausen. Attending princesses on this year's court were Kayleigh King, Josie Masden, Samantha Sutterlick and Ashley Woodward. The princes included Tanner Beeks, Trent Steinbach, David Wasgatt and Mitch Wheelhouse. Honorary junior high crown carriers were Jamie Booher, Julia LaVallie, Allison Skahan, Mariah Smith and Josie Starr. Red carpet attendants were junior high boys Brian Langfield and Tygh Schuster. The students danced to music provided by a disc jockey at the formal dance following the games.
As is the tradition, the Glenwood senior girls were introduced and presented a rose to their parents during their final home game against Sunnyside Christian on Friday night. The senior boys presented roses to their special family members during the homecoming game on Saturday.
Glenwood boys played Trout Lake for homecoming, and provided an action-filled game for the spectators. Glenwood's boys came out on top of their final home game of the season. The Glenwood girls sat out a game because Trout Lake did not have a girls' basketball team. To make up for the loss of action, the Glenwood Eagles alumni took on the Lyle Cougar alumni in an exciting game. The Cougar alum ended up winning the game. The crowd enjoyed the action so much that there were rumors of an alumni tournament floating around the bleachers!
