LIVE OAK — The crowning moment of Suwannee High’s homecoming activities caught both recipients by surprise Friday night.
During halftime of the Bulldogs’ win against Palatka, the school’s homecoming king and queen were announced.
And after Camdyn Hurst was crowned queen, much to her excitement and surprise, Josh Braun was then named king at Langford Stadium.
Rounding out the homecoming court were king candidates Tyrece Freeman, Jo Isidro, Alex Sapp and Tyree Taylor, princesses Samantha Castillo, Azucena Gonzalez, Kalle Herring and Tori Lane; and attendants Timya Wiggins (junior), Jamiah Walker (sophomore) and Leyana Torres (freshman).
That followed Friday afternoon’s parade where entries from the Live Oak Fire Department trucks carrying members of the SHS football team to the Sound of Suwannee marching band and the SHS cheerleaders took part.
School and county officials also participated in the parade.
But the biggest attractions during the parade — aside from the candy tossed to the crowds lining Ohio Avenue and Howard Street — were the three winning floats.
Taking first place in the float contest was the SHS Class of 2021 for its time machine float as part of the homecoming theme of “Being a Bulldog is Timeless.” Suwannee Primary School’s float was second while the FFA float finished third.
