Friday’s homecoming loss to Childress was disappointing, but true wolf pack spirit was alive and well for Friday evening’s homecoming festivities.  The stadium was bedecked in purple and gold, with attendees in full wolf pride.  Purple and gold clothing splendored from the outstanding crowd amid the bleachers.  The turnout was astounding with bleachers being full, and the parking lot resembling a car lot at full capacity. 

    All King and Queen candidates looked great and did a great job representing the DHS school body.  The candidates were escorted onto the field by their parents, and anticipation built as the 2009 DHS Homecoming King and Queen were announced.  The freshman nominated Queen Candidate Kelsea Kae Weatherly was named homecoming queen, and king went to sophomore nominated Jefferson Drew Abla. 

Kelsea Kae Weatherly is the 18-year-old daughter of Kim Weatherly.  Kelsea recounted that favorite things included “going to church, talking, listening to music, hanging out with friends, and worshipping.”  Kelsea is an active member of the First Baptist Church.  Kelsea plans to attend college upon graduation and to travel on mission work devoted to orphans.  Upon being questioned on what she liked about herself,  Kelsea stated she believes her personality to be one of her strongest assets.
Jefferson Drew “J.D.” Abla is the 18-year-old son of Kurtis and Dan Abla.  Jefferson was born in Peru, Indiana.  His mother and aunt are past homecoming queens. J.D. and his family attend First Baptist Church.  J.D.’s favorite thing is to “kick it with my friends.”  His plan upon graduation is currently undecided.
The Dalhart Texan would like to extend congratulations to DHS for putting together an enjoyable homecoming.  The true wolf pack spirit was palpable at Friday night’s game.  Even with a loss, the Wolf spirit remains strong. Congratulations to the 2009 DHS Homecoming King and Queen on doing a great job representing the DHS school body!
