Capes flapped in the autumn wind as homecoming superheroes stretched their muscles in preparation for the Super Run 5K.
Multiple teams waited to be cloaked with silky purple capes sporting this year’s homecoming logo.
Several students suited up as their favorite comic book hero to let school spirit shine. Sophomore Michelle Rodriguez dressed up as Wonder Woman and said she was running in wonder heels.
“I have the most school spirit,” Rodriguez said. “I challenge anyone who says otherwise.”
Sophomore Ethan DeMuth dressed up as Batman. He planned on walking because if he attempted to run, he said he would probably have tripped.
Further down the line of heroes, anticipating the start of the race, was a trio of Thomson Hall residents, freshmen Isabel Caulkim, Connor Schultz and Abby Lutz who brought provisional capes of their own.
The Thomson Pterodactyls, as they called themselves, were planning on winning homecoming by going to every event and dressing up to earn extra points.
The trio mentioned that they wanted to beat Knutzen Hall because of the rivalry between them.
Junior Kayla Radke from Knutzen Hall said they would not back down from a battle with Thomson Hall.
The Homecoming Super Run was an event full of jovial friendships and a touch of competition.
