LINCOLNTON, N.C. - After an exciting week at Lincolnton High School, Alexis Adams was elected the 2019 Homecoming Queen for the Wolfpack.

Leading up to the Homecoming game in which Adams was crowned as Wolfpack royalty, LHS celebrated this small town tradition with a very fun-filled week. Every day, students and staff participated in carefully selected themes such as Grade Color Wars Tuesday and Out of This World Wednesday.

Friday was celebrated with a pep rally during 4th period.  All sponsors, class representatives and court members were introduced to a cheering student body.  After the pep rally, all homecoming representatives participated in a colorful Main Street parade in downtown Lincolnton.

At 7:30 p.m., the Wolfpack kicked off the game against the Lake Norman Charter Knights. During half time, homecoming participants lined up on the 50-yard line as they were announced in front of their family and friends.  After everyone was introduced, 2018 Homecoming Queen, Chloe Lineberger said goodbye to her title and passed on the crown to senior Alexis Adams.

After being asked what it felt like to hear her name announced as the new Homecoming Queen, Adams said, “It was a feeling like no other. After doubting myself the entire time and hearing my name called out, I realized that all of my hard work had paid off. I really stepped out of my comfort zone and it took a lot of confidence to do so. I am so thankful for this opportunity.”

LHS ended the week with our first ever Homecoming Dance. A dance is common among many other schools and Lincolnton finally adopted this Homecoming tradition. Over 150 students attended the dance and has already been given the OK from LHS principal Mr. Preston Clarke for the dance to stay at Lincolnton for many years.

LHS Homecomings will always be a distinct celebration for the city of Lincolnton. Lincolnton is a small-town and it’s truly beautiful to see the entire city come together to celebrate our Homecoming festivities. Congratulations to our new queen, Alexis Adams and go Wolves!

Lincolnton 40, Lake Norman Charter 37
LHS won its Homecoming game, but it wasn't as easy as one might have expected.  The Lake Norman Charter Knights were looking for their first conference win of the year--and they came close to pulling off the upset. An 80-yard return of a recovered Lincolnton fumble gave LNC a 7-0 lead. Then they scored on a pass to make it 14-0.  Tiaje Ross then ran 60 yards for the Wolves' first TD; Diego Ramiro's kick made it 14-7.  Amontre Finger then scored on a two-yard run; the EP kick was blocked and the score was 14-13 early in the second period. The Knights then scored with just over six minutes left until halftime and added a two-point conversion to make it 22-13 at the half.  During halftime, Alexis Adams was crowned the 2019 Homecoming Queen. With nine minutes left in the third quarter, Amontre' Finger tossed an 80-yard pass to Dejarris Gash for another LHS TD and the kick made the score 22-20; but a pick six interception return and a two-point conversion gave the Knights a 30-20 lead going into the final period. With five minutes left in the game,  EJ Manjarres tossed a 20-yard touchdown pass  to Deandra Smith and Ramiro's EP kick made it 30-27.  The Wolves then recovered the ball on an on-side kick at the LNC 35-yard line.  Manjarres completed another 15-yard touchdown pass and with three minutes left in the game, Lincolnton took the lead 34-30.  Lake Norman Charter then scored and kicked an extra point to take a 37-34 lead with less than a minute left in the game.  Anyone who thought it was over was wrong-- Manjarres tossed a 40-yard pass to Deandra Smith for a TD and with seconds left, Lincolnton won 40-37. Next Friday, the Wolves play at North Lincoln, then finish their season hosting Maiden on Nov. 8.
