Royalty came to Clay this past Saturday night and added a touch of class to the rural hills we call home as the 2021 Basketball Homecoming Queen, Lilly Nicole Osborne, was crowned. The finest dresses money could buy were adorning Queen Osborne and the class princesses, and it was time to walk the walk.
Escorted by Blake Sontos, Queen Osborne strolled along the walk of fame and graciously accepted her crown from Principal Crystal Gibson. The sound of wild cheers were loud and there were smiles as big as the moon on parents’ and friends’ faces filled the gym as the crown was set in place. Queen Osborne wasn’t without her court of the class princesses. Freshman Princess Lilly Mae Goldizen was escorted by Micah Osborne. Sophomore Princess Alivia Deanna Jones was escorted by Logan Hanshaw. Junior Princess Ivy Ariel Taylor was escorted by Curtis Litton. Senior Princess Emily Marie Price was escorted by Cheston Haynes. All in all, it was a fine half time ceremony for this year’s homecoming, Congratulations to 2021 Basketball Homecoming Queen Lilly Nicole Osborne and all the princesses.
