Pocahontas County Homecoming Promises A Great Game And A Memorable Dance

Dunmore, WV – The 2010 Pocahontas County Homecoming Football game on October 1st promises to be a good one as the Pocahontas County Warriors take on neighboring Bath County Chargers.

According to Teresa Rhea, the Homecoming court has already been announced.

Freshman class representatives are Jennifer Fertig and Caleb Arbogast.

Sophomore class representatives are Cassidy Rao and Kyler Doss.

Junior class representatives are Chelsea Walker and Curtis Pyles.

Senior class representatives are Kimberly Pollard and Jessie Hoke.

The candidates for Homecoming Queen are Cathy Hefner, Sarah Shears, and Kaitlyn Beverage.

The candidates for Homecoming King are Seth Doss, Nathan Hammons, and David Kiner.

Following the game, everyone is invited to the Opera House in Marlinton for the homecoming dance, this year celebrating the 40th birthday of Pocahontas County HS.

The theme for the dance is the 70’s and music will be provided by 70’s revival band River Rock. This new band is fronted by singer Chris Campbell, PCHS class of ’84, and includes other talented musicians from the Greenbrier Valley. They’ll be playing many of the great hits from the golden era of leisure suits, paisley prints and Nehru jackets. Prizes will be offered for best 70’s costume and best 70’s style dance moves.

The Opera House will be decorated with maroon and gold on one side and orange and black on the other side to honor both Pocahontas and Bath County teams. Old yearbooks and vintage photos from both schools will be on display along with period athletic uniforms and other mementos. Several PCHS classes have also pledged to hold mini-reunions at the dance – the class of 1978 is already claiming they’ll have the most in attendance.

Proceeds from the dance will go to support live Warrior sports programming on the new Allegheny Mountain Radio station, WVMR-FM, 91.9 Hillsboro.

AMR hopes to have the new station on the air in time for basketball season this winter.
