If ever a year could be wiped clean from everyone’s memory, it would be 2020. If ever a game could be forgotten from the Springfield football program, it would be their 35-2 Homecoming – and home finale – defeat at the hands of the Bowling Green Bobcats on a brisk early fall night.
More than six months after they last sat in their classrooms, Springfield students are returning to their respective buildings.
A week of spirit activities–albeit COVID-19 style–culminated with the annual crowning of the Springfield High School Homecoming queen on an unusually chilly September 18 evening. Selected as the 2020 queen was Lily Hickey, who was crowned by last year’s queen Lannie Sweet, above left. With the queen following the ceremony are her parents Renea and Patrick Hickey, above right.
The annual Patriot Day ceremony at Penta Career Center took on a different appearance in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.
School may not be in session on Springfield campuses, but the buildings are nonetheless a flurry of activity.
