LAHAINA — Seniors Tyler Tuipulotu and Krystille Bayudan will reign as Lahainaluna High School’s Homecoming 2010 King and Queen.

The homecoming game is slated for Saturday, Oct. 16, against the Maui High Sabers. The junior varsity game will begin at 4:30 p.m., followed by the varsity kick-off at 7 p.m. A pre-game program will honor the seniors on the football team and cheer squad.

Tuipulotu and Bayudan and the homecoming court will appear during the half-time program along with the school’s marching and pep band. The band’s half-time program will feature selections by Lady Gaga. This year’s theme is “Lunas FunHouse: Under The Big Red Top.”

Other members of the court include seniors Kaiolohia Aniban, Roleen Agbayani, Tyler Gushiken and Mariah Perry; juniors Spencer Ishikawa Jr. and Kulia Murray; sophomores Brenner Duarozan and Irish Barlaan; and freshmen Vincent Sarian and Ho’olai’ikeao Cabanilla.

The week-long homecoming celebration included friendly class competitions in lip synching, wacky Olympic games, dance fever, class and homecoming banner, and the much anticipated Alma Mater Song Contest held as the last event of the week. The song contest also challenged the classes to also sing “Yonder Lahaina Mountains” written by former dorm matron Alice Benham in honor of the Boarding Department’s 175th anniversary in 2011.

The classes also earned bonus points for participating in community service projects and for their spirit at two pre-homecoming football games.

Event chair was junior Joshua Gaastra, assisted by ASB President Emalee Cabading and the the Homecoming Planning Committee.
