Cool Weather Reigns at Homecoming 2008

Athens, W.Va. – The weather turned quickly from warm and sunny to cool and brisk for Concord University’s 2008 homecoming celebration; the second game scheduled “under the lights.” Kickoff was slated for 6 p.m.

The halftime score of 0-17 didn’t dampen the enthusiasm of the students or audience. Halftime activities featured the CU marching band under the direction of Ms. Laura Zamzow. After the performance, seven couples, who vied for the honors of 2008 king and queen, were introduced.

The 2008 homecoming king and queen were Becca Eerenberg from Hinton representing Delta Zeta and Kyle Cooney from Winfield representing Chi Omega Psi; first attendants were Zachary Dickinson from Athens representing Mu Xi Phi and Jessica Willis from Bluefield representing Sigma Sigma Sigma; second attendants were Victor Parra-Luckert from Valencia, Venezuela, representing Phi Sigma Phi and Amilee Bobbin from Daniels representing Alpha Sigma Alpha. Other candidates included: Heather Witt from Bedford, Va., Nu Zeta Chi and Lacy Harvey from Peterstown, Sigma Tau Gamma; Timmy Fama from Beckley, Circle K and Emily Loving from Summersville, Alpha Sigma Tau; Annie Bell from Kimball, Black Student Union and Chris Hudnall from Athens, Tau Kappa Epsilon; and Homer Lester from Beaver, Pi Kappa Phi and Parisa Bigdeli from Herndon, Va., International Club.

The Mountain Lions were pitted against Glenville Pioneers, and unfortunately, the Pioneers won; ending score was 14 to 34. Fireworks followed the game.
