Students gathered in the gym on October 20 for Marywood Madness, an event that celebrated Marywood athletics as well as announced the Homecoming Court. Seniors, Cory Chase and Kelly Hench were chosen as King and Queen while Addie Long and Matt Maldonato walked away with the titles of Princess and Prince. The Duke and Dutchess were Mike Romano and Brielle Mayle and Deanna Cavallaro and Alexander Fallek were the Lord and Lady.

Performances by the Step Team, Dance Team, and cheerleaders provided entertainment for the students as well as appearances by Sister Anne Munley, I.H.M. and Father Brian Van Fossen, campus chaplain.

Ryan Jones, a junior communication arts student, served as the master of ceremonies and ensured that the event moved along smoothly.

Father Brian and Jones introduced the individual athletic teams and they filed into the gym to be recognized.

After the recognition of the athletes, they presented the 2011 Homecoming Court. As the candidates exited the court, the cheerleaders ran on to perform a cheer and a dance number, both of which were met with thunderous applause.

Claire Hanrahan, president of the Marywood Pep Band, said, “There was a strong show of school spirit among all the students in attendance. It was an exciting thing to go to and be a part of.” The Pep Band played at the event in between performances.
