Coronation ceremonies and the traditional burning of the "V-H" launched Viborg-Hurley's Homecoming Week festivities. The evening began with the introduction of the King and Queen Candidates, which ended in the crowning of our King and Queen by last year's King and Queen Garrett Knock and Tori Hansen. Congratulations to Viborg-Hurley's newly crowned 2019 Homecoming Queen Katelynn Johansen and Homecoming King Shane Andersen. We also want to congratulate our court: Cassidy Sayler, Ethan Engen, Justin Harms, Elizabeth Hjelm, Tommy Wurtz, Kassidy Lyons, Raschelle Leber, and Cole Overgard.

The evening ended with the burning of the V-H, but before going out to do this, the cheerleaders led the school song and a cheer competition between the high school classes. The winners of the cheer competition were the Freshmen. They won themselves a pizza party for showing their school spirit. Congratulations and have a wonderful homecoming week!
