Purple Reign: The 2018 Homecoming Court
Homecoming is here and so is our esteemed Maverick court. Voting for king and queen will take place October 29 and 30 during junior and senior English classes so make sure to make your vote count and pick who you want to win.
Tyler Hammond is a basketball player and member of the PALs organization. Tyler has a lot of good memories as a maverick, both on and off the court.
When asked about his favorite memory, he was ready with his answer of hitting a game winning shot last year.
While Tyler knows he’s got it on the basketball court, he’s more than happy to be on the homecoming court.
“To be on homecoming court is humbling,” Tyler said. “It’s nice to be on the court with all these amazing people.”

“I appreciate my class voting for me and being with this great group of guys and girls,” Lance said. “All fabulous people.”
Brandon Anderson, one of the stars of MavTV and residential funnyman, has no specific favorite memory but likes making new ones every day hanging with friends and cutting up at school.
When asked about being on court, Brandon said, “It’s a big deal, a real highschool fantasy, and I’m really happy and excited.”
Kristian Johnson is the marketing manager for the school’s yearbook. His favorite time as a maverick would have to be one of his performances he gave on the stage over the years.

Haley Benk is a member of our Belles and a member of the Maverick Star news staff. While she’s had lots of good times as a maverick, her favorite is performing at the Super Bowl her first year of Belles. She got to hug Lady Gaga, so it’s sort of an easy choice.
“It’s such a high honor,” Haley said when asked about being on court.“I’m getting to represent the school well, and I’m proud to be that Maverick.”
Diane Nguyen is a track runner and a runner in the Katy Student Run organization. She is also a member of Mu Alpha Theta and National Honor Society. Whether it be a football game or a pep rally, Diane’s favorite memories are any time the students are showing true Maverick Spirit.

“I don’t know any Asian homecoming queens, and the fact that I’m already on court and has the chance to be an Asian representative in the Asian community here at Morton Ranch means a lot,” Diane said.
Bre’Auna Gonzalez is a member of Senior Women and part of the fantastic color guard team here at the Ranch. She loves Morton Ranch, its diversity and friendliness and getting along with everybody.
“It’s something I’ve always wanted,” Bre’Auna said about being on court. “Especially being inspired from the past few years’ winners.”
