Nate Hanley Staff Reporter

The Riverside-Brookfield homecoming king and queen have been announced.  The after school assembly on September 17th was held at Shuey Stadium where the court was announced driven around the track in convertibles.  Before the crowning, there was performances by the band, poms, and cheerleaders.

On Friday September 10th Student Association announced this year’s homecoming court.  SA cut the court down from twenty nominees to ten. 

Now SA has cut it down once again.  Jimmy Capone has been crowned king and Danielle Ryan is the queen.  These two students have come a long way.  After four year’s of being loyal to RB, they are now homecoming king and queen.

When asked how he felt being crowned king, Capone said, “It feels good.” 

Capone is a member of the football team and National Honors Society.  He enjoys fishing and hanging out with his friends.  His favorite teachers are John Fields and Mark Gouwens.  Jimmy’s favorite member on the court besides himself was Emily Waas.

Capone said his favorite saying is, “Why fix it if it’s not broken?”

Ryan said, “It’s very very cool,”  when asked how it feels being crowned queen.  Ryan is a member of SA and also Best Buddies.  She believed that anybody on the court would have been an amazing choice to win.

The crowd of the entire school went wild when Capone and Ryan were announced king and queen.  They went on to make appearences at the homecoming football game against Elmwood Park and also the homecoming dance for pictures and dances. 

Capone wore his crown, while Ryan wore her tiara.   The entire court was on stage for a song at the dance.
