Breckenridge Homecoming 2021
The Breckenridge Buckaroos’ Homecoming took a sudden turn last week when just under 36 hours from kickoff, the Ballinger Bearcats, their scheduled homecoming opponent, canceled due to COVID-19. The athletic department scrambled and found the Bells Panthers was looking for an opponent after their week two opponent had canceled and Homecoming 2021 was back on.
Festivities resumed as normal with the pep rally Friday morning and the annual pre-game Homecoming Court announcement. Defensive back Julian Eutimio and Samantha Smalley were named Homecoming King and Queen before the game.
The Homecoming Court included seniors Diana Mendoza, Austin Hill, Brandon Haigwood, Jimena Palacios, Jaylen Harper, Tori Rose, Kason Knight and Lily Woodward; junior Prince Nathanial Aguilar and Princess McKenna Adams; sophomore Prince Jose Arellano and Princess Zaea Ragle; and freshman Prince Austin Ducote and Princess Solae Mendez made up the rest of the 2021 Homecoming Court.
The Panthers took an 8-0 lead in the first quarter and never looked back en route to a 41-20 win Friday night at Buckaroo Stadium. The Buckaroos struggled against a dominant running game from the Panthers.
