Glitter banners, huge paper snowflakes, a silver runway and a plethora of school spirit turned the Skyline gymnasium into a 'Winter Wonderland' for the school's 2020 Winter Homecoming festivities on Friday afternoon.

After the crowning of King Steve Fisher and Queen Kayla Urban, the full-house crowd was entertained by a short high school girls basketball team skit, and then several cheers and pep-band songs all led by Skyline cheerleaders, which reved up spirit for tournament games to be played Saturday at Skyline. Boys games start at 2 p.m. for the 16th Annual Boys 54 Basketball Classic Tournament.

Participants in the Skyline Mini-Cheer Clinic with kindergarten - sixth grade cheerleaders put on a show for the crowd, leading cheers along with their Skyline High School cheerleader counterparts.

Announcements for the assembled included words of wisdom from Skyline boys basketball coach Kenny Eddy who gave an update on both girls' and boys' teams progress so far in the season.

A special homecoming week class award went to the Skyline senior class for their creation of the best snowman, without snow.
