Junior Class President Emma Mings wasn't exactly confident that she and her classmates would be accepting the award for the best float during Fallbrook High School's homecoming last Friday night (Oct. 19). And for good reason.

The winning float featured rolling hills, avocado trees and problematic giant globe. "I am very proud of the fact that the globe stayed on the float," Emma said. "This morning it exploded in my dad's car."

The juniors had "Earth" as the theme of their float which tied into the overall theme for homecoming this year, which was "In Our Element." The remaining three classes had "Air," "Fire" and "Water."

"I'm happy," Mings said. "We've been working on this for about three or four weeks with about 20 students from my class. It is pretty much the same group every year and I think we've got it down by now."

Mings said it's the first time her class of 2020 has won the top prize and she was the one who came up with the winning design this year.

"We're all pretty excited," she said.

Ariana Arias and Jakey Braungel were crowned the 2018 Fallbrook High School Homecoming King and Queen during halftime of the football game.

"I was truly surprised because there are some really great girls up there with me tonight," Arias said. "I am very happy."

The senior said it was her first time being included on the homecoming court. She is involved in National Charity League and Girl Scouts of America.

In addition to Arias and Braungel, this year's homecoming court consisted of Craig Person, Jake McBroom, Luke Conley, Jonathan Anaya, Honey Diaz, Kathy Hernandez, Karina Fonseca, and Auggie Chavez.

This year's Grand Marshal for the event was Ken Brower, who retired after 47 years as a teacher, coach and guidance counselor at the school.

Prior to the varsity game, the school celebrated its 125th anniversary by inviting alumni in attendance to come down to the field and share a commemorative cake. During the weekend, the classes of 1958, 1978 and 1988 hosted reunions and many of the former students were in attendance at the game.
