Rain Doesn't Dampen Hutto Homecoming
Updated: Friday, September 20 2013, 10:39 PM CDT
On a wet night in Williamson County, Hutto High School was forced to change its game plan. The football players on the field were unaffected. But those on the "court" were not.
"We've got some young ladies that are quite dressed up and some young men that look stunning this evening," said Emily Grobe, Hutto ISD's Public Information Officer. "So we certainly want to make sure that their evening tonight, with pictures with everything that's going to go into their memory books, is going to be as protected as possible."
Instead of being introduced in the stadium, heavy rains forced the 2013 Hutto homecoming court inside the school's performing arts center. And the ceremony was held before the game rather than at halftime.
"Our hippos love water," Grobe told KEYE TV news. "We are just going to go out and do the things that we love to do: play sports, honor our kids, accomplish really great things - and that's what's going to happen tonight with or without the rain."
Now the homecoming dance is not until Saturday night, but newly crowned king Zachary Weseman and queen Tyler Saucedo have already shown they are quick on their feet.
"I've never been a part of anything at halftime," recalled Weseman. "Especially that didn't even happen at halftime."
"We all found out and I told my Dad to just meet me inside," said Saucedo. "It was an amazing feeling just hearing my name being called: it's such an honor to be Hutto High School's homecoming queen this year."
Tonight, the Hippos proved that they can not only change plans quickly - they can also change clothes quickly. Tyler is not only the homecoming queen - she's also a cheerleader. So after the ceremony she had to change out of her gown and into her uniform. She was back on the sideline by the middle of the first quarter.
