The competition was close as Kelsey Halaschak and Teaker Harris were named Lely Homecoming King and Queen at half time of the football game on Friday, September 16, 2016.
Halaschak, of Marco Island, said she knew that a lot of students were voting for her, but wasn’t sure if she would have enough.
Harris, of East Naples, said, “Wow, I am in awe. Therewere so many good candidates. I am so happy.”
Candidates included: 9th grade, Matt Desir and Brielle Penzo; 10th, Gary Vincent and Lareesha Clercira; 11th, Nelson Charelus and Selena Sanchez; 12th, Whitney Petit, Shelby Davis, Deasia Nicolas, Gina Jean-Francois, Irnice Charelus and Halaschak; Marco Celus, Oliver Dumel, Robert Garcia, Jason Francoeur, Aiden Kerchner and Harris.
The crowning was part of a very active Homecoming week with events every day.
