For Homecoming week, the Sundown Roughnecks play against the Farwell steers on Friday, September 24th at 7:30pm. The Farwell Steers are undefeated at 4-0. The Roughnecks have a solid defense and the Steers have a tricky offense, so it will be a tough game for both teams. It is homecoming for Sundown so it will be played on their home turf, giving them a home field advantage. The SHS students have been showing their school pride all week with hall decorating, participating in dress-up days, and attending the bonfire and pep rally under the lights. These SHS traditions are living on and promoting school spirit in hopes for a Friday night win.
