New tradition coming for Castor’s Homecoming

Castor High School will celebrate Homecoming a bit differently this year. The Tigers will begin a new tradition with Saline High School. The two schools will hold simultaneous homecoming weeks with the Tigers and the Bobcats meeting in a LHSAA Hall of Fame game on Thursday, October 19 at 6pm.
This year’s Paw Brawl will be at SHS. (The matchup will alternate game sites each year.) These two schools are separated by only 18 miles of highway. Tradition and pride run deep. It’s green and gold versus orange and black! Who will rule South Bienville Parish?

The presentation of the courts, honored graduates, retired faculty and staff will be held on Friday, October 20 at 7pm in the new gym at Castor High. The 2013 State Semi-Final Basketball Team and the 2023 Track State Runner-Up team will be recognized. CHS will also honor alumni and retired faculty members with a reception at 6pm in the school’s library. The graduates of 1963, ’73, ‘83’ 93, 2003, 2013, and 2023 will be honored.

During the 7pm presentation, Mr. & Miss CHS and the Homecoming King & Queen and their courts will be introduced. They were chosen by their fellow high school students to receive these distinguished honors. Miss CHS is Ambree Collinsworth, daughter of Nathan and Lisa Collinsworth. Mr. CHS is Johnathan Warren, son of John and Amy Warren. Their court includes Seniors Hannah Johnson and Jason Perry, Juniors Malorie Cooper and Cole Martin, Sophomores Avery Jordan and Ayden Hays and Freshman Kambree Mitchell and Cole Gilcrease.
