Juniors float into parade victory

Summit Daily/Brad OdekirkThe Class of 2007 won the top float in the parade with their A & W Rootbeer Float entry Friday afternoon during the homecoming parade down Frisco's Main Street. Riding on the back of the float are juniors Rochelle Wilson, Alex Guras, Megan Barrett, Whitney Degerberg, Annalise Hafliger, Tara Kelly and Chelsea Seegers.

FRISCO – Members of the Summit High School junior class rode alongside a gargantuan A&W root beer float straight into victory during Friday’s Homecoming Parade.

The judges unanimously agreed that the juniors best (and most literally) represented the “float” theme with their idea.The team of root beer floaters won first place not just for their beautifully made creation, but also for their enthusiasm, as the comedy of their offering was appreciated not only by the judges, but also by the scores of parade watchers lining Main Street.

Second place went to Dillon Valley Elementary, who presented a charming tableau of a world globe surrounded by children.The elaborate pirate ship presented by the sophomores of Summit High received third place, and the Summit Student Leadership group came in fourth for their colorful evocation of the Caribbean, complete with palm trees.

The parade started off with a troop of boisterous cheerleaders, setting the mood for the afternoon and evening’s festivities. They were followed by floats set on vans and flatbed trucks.The Summit High gymnastics team enthusiastically threw candy to the audience, while the ski team followed on – what else? – skis. The French society presented a “Tour de Caraibes” complete with bicycles, and the famed Frisco Big Red bus followed with catchy dance music.

Keely Brown was one of the judges in Friday’s parade competition. Other judges were Superintendent Dr. Millie Hamner, deputy chief fireman Jeff Berino and Parent Teacher Student Organization representative Rachel Pokrandt.
