Playing as forward, Jenni- fer is a starter and has been on the high school basketball team the. past three years. She has enjoyed basketball since way back in grade school and hopes to eventu- ally play basketball in college. When Jennifer was asked about her reaction when told she was queen, she stated, "l thought Coach Madison and Coach Bunch were joking. It was a nice surprise!"

He will escort Biilie Lincoln in the homecoming. A starting forward on the varsity team this year, Jimmy remembers his most exciting game as his first on the varsity when they played against Glencoe.
