Mackenzie Hopkins – Mustangs Ahead
(LAKEWOOD RANCH, FL) – Next Friday’s football game against Tampa Bay Christian will be no ordinary football game. Not only is it LRHS’s homecoming game but prior to it, LRHS will have its first tailgate of the season.
Beginning at 6 p.m. LRHS’ Student Government Association (SGA) will host the first tailgate in conjunction with Bayside Community Church. Admission to the tailgate is $3.
The admission includes free Chick-Fil-A (courtesy of Bayside Community Church), snacks (chips and candy), beverages, wristbands, games, raffles, and a hotdog eating contest.
Once admitted, students’ tickets are put into one of two raffles, one to pie a teacher in the face, and the other for a Chick-Fil-A gift card. The winner of the Chick-Fil-A gift card may pick up their prize by attending Bayside Community Church’s 12 nights event.
LRHS Student Government Association (SGA) adviser Delaney Riggins said, “Tailgating is a great way for students to get pumped up before the game and raise school spirits!”
Tickets for the tailgate can be purchased at all lunches during homecoming week or at the tailgate event itself.
The tailgate is located outside the football stadium and ends prior to the start of the game.
