HOMECOMING SUCCESS

Neither pandemic protocols nor the challenge of the Ironheads opponent on the football field could spoil the excitement as Eufaula celebrated Homecoming 2020. The Ironheads 47-14 victory over Hartshorne capped the coronation festivities for Madison Lynn and Jacob Fitzer as Queen and King.  Joining the royal court were Senior attendant and escort Isabella Petit and Tye Pippenger, Junior attendant and escort Allison Cook and Eden Gray along with Sophomore attendant Abby Fletcher and escort Ontario Ellen as well as Freshman attendant Jordas McClish and escort Ming Lin.  Pacey Sutherland served Queen Madison as flower girl and Zach Lynn was the crown bearer.

After winning McIntosh County bragging rights for another year and the Homecoming victory, the Ironheads continue their quest for a third straight district championship.

CHEERING FOR THE IRONHEADS

Ten seniors will lead a spirited group of 23 as Eufaula High School cheerleaders for 2020-2021. Seniors Becky Bray, Amara Atchison, Isabella Pettit, Madison Lynn, Karli Wilkinson, Chelsea Marshall, Destinee Hutson, DeAna Evans, Amanda Cox, and Kailyn Willis will be joined by juniors Alison Cook, Johneshia Smith, and Grace Tiger along with sophomores Livia Dunn, Vada Bevenue, Savannah Goodman, Makalyn Neill, Haylee Burns, and Tenia Greenlee plus freshmen Katelyn Pennington, Lorelie Scarborough, Rhyatt Dunn, and Sydney Jones. These girls plan to maintain the tradition of Ironheads school spirit in addition to perfecting routines to compete in the OSSAA championships in January.  Lori Curtis remains as Eufaula cheer coach again this year.

“E-TOWN BAND” REMAINS IN TUNE

Marching 66 members strong, the Pride of Eufaula began practices in early August for another championship season. The continued growth includes 26 eighth graders as new members. After hosting the Eufaula Ironhead Invitational as the initial contest of the season, the talented group of musicians will compete in a contest at Beggs before starting their quest for another “Sweepstakes” trophy marching in step at the OSSAA Regional Marching Contest on October 14th. The “Pride” is under the field direction of senior drum majors Alexander Worley and Cayla Cox. The band is under the guidance of Rusty Helms, Michelle Barnes, Amber Singleton and Adam Lynn.

IN SEARCH OF THE FINISH LINE

With OSSAA championships in the near future, the Eufaula cross-country athletes continue to pare down their times. In competition this fall Tori Leflore, Kalyn Holman, and Emily Tatgenhorst each have medaled for the Lady Ironhead team. Leflore, a sophomore, garnered a season highlight for the girls with a fourth place finish at Holdenville. Colter Roberts and Justis James have grabbed medals also for the boys cross-country runners as the teams embrace the grind of this distance running sport.
