Announced as Homecoming King at halftime of the Friday, Sept. 15 football game versus Montezuma-Cortez, Ignacio quarterback Trace Lovelace (11) tries smiling alongside Queen Karely Mendoza (escorted by little brother William Mendoza) while fighting the pain of a seriously injured left ankle sustained minutes earlier. It would soon be encased in a protective boot and Lovelace did not play the second half of a 38-14 loss. IHS’ freshman royalty pair was Shelcie Gosney and Dylan Labarthe, with Morgan Herrera and Diego Valencia representing the sophomore class, and Heile Pearson and Joe Herrera the juniors. Named Senior Class 2nd Attendants were Allisianna Baker and Kruz Pardo, with 1st Attendants being Leela Rosa and Marcus Chapman. (It was later revealed that due to a mix-up, Chapman was actually named King and Lovelace 1st Attendant.)
