The Badgers pulled off the upset of the year in front of their home crowd Saturday night, demonstrating to Iowa Central what a Snow College Homecoming is all about. Parades, spirit nights, returning alumni, a dance to remember and even a visit from Snow’s first winning football team, made the entire week unforgettable.
After a tough season, and a rocky start to the night, the Badgers stepped it up in the second quarter to take a 4 point lead into halftime. Weston Barlow’s 97-yard touchdown return gave the team the spark they needed and fired up the overflow crowd. The defense stepped it up in the third quarter with their own scoring play on Trace Tupe’s sack of Iowa’s quarterback in the endzone for a safety.
Football wasn’t the only victory of the week. The Men’s and Women’s soccer teams took substantial wins over Truckee Meadows. Both squads are sporting winning seasons on the pitch as preseason is wrapping up. Momentum is key as they move into regular season games, where wins and losses will affect their opportunities at another title shot, especially for the Men’s two-time defending regional champs.
Volleyball has also been killing it all season. Our lady Badgers have built an eight-game winning streak, seven of which were won in three straight sets. Homecoming week was much better for the team as Snow College freshman Setter, Ellee Anderson, was named Player of the Week in the Scenic West Athletic Conference.
Homecoming is so much more than just sports and victories. It’s a time for the community to rally support for the school and for the students to give back to our amazing community that helps make Snow great. It’s an opportunity to look back at the incredible alumni that have helped build it; brick by brick, year by year, since 1888.
The whole city turned out in great numbers on Saturday, September 21 as Snow College clubs, organizations and team marched down the streets in the annual homecoming parade leading to the pre-game tailgate party. Reunions were held for Golden Badger alumni. Snow’s first winning football team from 40 years ago was celebrated along with the other accomplishments made from the thousands of Snow graduates that have graced our gorgeous campus. To cap it all off, the Badgers showcased the recently completed athletic building and opened her doors to the public.
As students move through yet another year of success and opportunities, Homecoming Week stands as a reminder of where it all started and how, as a small collective force, Snow College amplifies the excellence in all of us.
