Into The Blue: Questa Homecoming 2023 Recap

Questa’s 2023 Homecoming week (October 2 through 7) was filled with blue pride as students showed their school spirit.

Students participated in dress-up week, where each day of the week followed a theme, with different themes for Alta Vista and Questa Junior/Senior High School. Themes included neon day, dress-like-a-staff-member day, music genre and dress-like-a-celebrity-day, class colors, and wildcat gear day.

The Questa Volleyball Teams

reigned victorious over their homecoming games against the Dulce Lady Hawks. The JV team swept Dulce in two sets, with these scores: set 1: 26-24 and set 2: 25-8. The varsity Ladycats swept Dulce in three sets with the scores: set 1: 25-13, set 2: 25:18, and set 3: 25-22.

The Questa Soccer Team played Taos JV on Friday, October 6, and after a long game of strong defense, the Wildcats lost, but kept Taos at only one point. The final score was 1-0.

Friday night ended with a bonfire and Saturday began with a parade through Questa’s main street.

The Questa Football Team

reigned victorious for Homecoming on Saturday, 10/7. The Questa JV Football Team remains undefeated this season, beating Pine Hill JV 54-0. The Questa Varsity Football team beat Pine Hill varsity 52-0.

During the varsity game, the homecoming court was presented to the school community.

Markie Mascarenas and Alyana Leon were crowned Questa Homecoming King and Queen Royalty and Isaac Vialpando and Allison Segura were crowned Prince and Princess Royalty.

• Other members of the homecoming court included:
• 6th grade: Nelson Fernandez and Mia Gonzales

• 8th grade: Isaac Vialpando and Allison Segura
• 9th grade: Ethan Herrera and Winter Hernandez
• 10th grade: Alyssa Cintas and Anthony Roberts
• 11th grade: James Garcia and Alyana Leon

The Questa Cheer Team

worked diligently to represent each team and the school throughout the homecoming weekend. Coach Maria Medina synopsized their work over the week-long event, which included: participating in dual sport practices Monday-Wednesday, performing for the pep rally Thursday, cheering at the Volleyball game Thursday, cheering at the soccer game Friday, cheering at the bonfire Friday, walking in the parade Saturday morning, and cheering at the football game Saturday night.

It takes a community to raise children and continued support and love to keep them strong as they learn and grow in academia and sports. Questa is lucky to have both.
