Hawks have it their way during Homecoming
Victory-laden week for H-M-S teams
September 22, 2022
Homecoming at Hartley-Melvin-Sanborn was twice as nice last week.
Not only did the volleyball team beat South O'Brien and win three pool matches at the GT/RA tournament, the football team blasted MMCRU 66-34 on Friday night. It marked the third district win by the Hawks and kept them at the top of the Class A District 1 standings.
Big wins may be the main headlines from Homecoming week, but they weren't the only stories.
A pep rally on Friday drew a big crowd of students and community members eager to root on the Hawks. With new Queen Abby Kunzman and King Kooper Ebel reigning over festivities, hordes of Maroon and Gold-clad H-M-S fans then hit the streets in downtown Hartley for a parade featuring floats from both students and local businesses.
With school spirit at sky-high levels, the Hawks took the Royals to the woodshed later that evening to wrap up a memorable week with a statement win.
