Tri-Village Homecoming a Success















After 2 heartbreaking losses, the Patriots were needing to get back in the win column. They had lost to Covenant Christian by just 1 point and then lost to Gamble Montessori (#8 in the district) by 6. So they were close, winnable games but the Patriots had fallen just short in both games. Coach Shondlemeyer would later remark that the outcome of just 3 plays made the difference, the team could easily have been 5-2 instead of 3-4. Their homecoming game was against Dohn Academy from Cincinnati. The Patriots made the most of their first ever homecoming with a resounding 37-8 win. And the homecoming event was unique in that the homecoming court rode into the stadium on Jeepsters, making it even more noteworthy. For the record, the first ever football king and queen for the Patriots homecoming were Jonny Wilson and Taylor Pearson – a legacy that they can keep forever.
