RACINE — Homecoming weekend for Southern Local School District began Friday with a parade through Racine that featured Homecoming Queen candidates, attendants and floats.

Football players and coaches from Southern High School and the junior high school, as well as the Big Bend Youth League, rode by on the bed of a semi-tractor trailer.

In spite of rainy weather, halftime saw the crowning of the queen as Southern’s band played during halftime festivities.

Southern senior Sabra Bailey was named the 2015 Southern Homecoming Queen on Friday. Her escort was senior Joe Beegle.

A dance was held Saturday evening to wrap up Southern’s homecoming weekend.
