"Love our Chieftains!" is the theme of the South Barber High School Basketball Homecoming.

This coming Friday, Feb. 12, SBHS in Kiowa, Kansas, holds their 2021 Basketball Homecoming as they host the Central Christian Cougars.

People wanting to attend homecoming need to remember the rules due to Covid. Each participant in this event receive four tickets they can share with whom they want. Participants include all the basketball team members, cheerleaders and students involved in homecoming. For example, each kindergarten helper, each attendant, etc., receives four tickets. A student who is a ball player already gets four tickets and will not get additional tickets if they are a part of the homecoming royalty.

Three senior young women were selected as queen candidates: Allie Hoch, Haylee Miller and Kate Perschbacher. Senior basketball escorts are Emilio Perez and Dane Coggins.

Underclassman attendants and their escorts are: freshmen Arrington Allen and Camron Dorsey; sophomores Zoe Bougoukalos and Brent Duncan and juniors Bianca Binning and Caden Rathgeber.

Kindergarten helpers are Luella Bogatay, daughter of Jonathan and Tamara Bogatay; Arhianna Pulliam, daughter of Aaron Pulliam and Alanna Sexton and granddaughter of Jim and Linda Pulliam; Taten Graves, son of Austin and Summer Graves; and Tacksen Ricke, son of Tyler and Cassidy Ricke.

The coronation is at halftime of the boys game.

Fans are celebrating their Chieftain spirit all week in anticipation of the hard court event with the following Dress Up Days: Monday – Sweet Dreams (Pajamas); Tuesday – Dress to Impress; Wednesday – Gender Bender; Thursday – Famous Couples/Duos; Friday – Love Our Chieftains (Black and Gold).

A pep rally Friday at 3 p.m. in the gym will get everyone fired up for the games. Each class is decorating a shopping cart (Thursday after school) that will be judged at the pep rally.
