UPCOMING MHS HOMECOMING EVENTS
THURSDAY, OCTOBER 28
Fall Festival and Homecoming Parade
This year the Fall Festival and Parade will both be held on Thursday, October 28 from 5:00-7:30PM on the front lawn. The festival will begin at 5:00 and continue on throughout the night and the parade will begin at 5:30 and end at the Fall Festival. This year as homecoming will take place the weekend of Halloween we chose to have the Fall Festival be a "Trunk or Treat" for the entire community. We would love to have as many students, staff, community members, and feeder students in Halloween costumes celebrating both the holiday and the Milton football team. You can expect the following at the event: Food trucks, Music, Activities/Booths, Trick or Treating, Costume Contest, Spirit wear sales, Pep Rally (Marching Band/Cheerleaders/Football team/etc.)! There will also be many booths offering other fun activities. In past years some of the booths we had included: Photo booth, Cake Walk, Pumpkin Painting, Henna Tattoos, Pie in the Face. Each booth will also be handing out candy for trick or treaters and have activities fun for all ages - elementary though high school. The homecoming dance is for the students, the homecoming fall festival, parade and football game is truly for our awesome community and alumni and future students!

MILTON TRADITIONS KEEPER MEDALLION
In an effort to reinvigorate participation, community and school spirit following some hard and isolating years, MHS has added a new program for all seniors - the Milton Traditions Keeper Medallion. The goal is to participate in any many MHS traditions as possible throughout your senior year. Seniors that complete and document at least twenty traditions will be awarded a medallion to wear during graduation. Homecoming week is a perfect opportunity to complete some of these traditions. *See website for details and traditions: https://miltonstudentco.

Congratulations to the cast, crew, and directors (David Hopkins & Sim Jones) of "NORA’S LOST” for winning multiple awards and receiving all SUPERIOR RATINGS at the Georgia Theatre Conference (GTC) this past weekend in Vidalia, Georgia.
Milton won RUNNER UP FOR BEST OVERALL PRODUCTION, BEST LEADING ACTRESS award (Sarah Charles Lewis, junior), BEST SUPPORTING ACTOR award (Axel Zivic, senior), ALL-STAR CAST awards (Sarah DeVoe, senior and Matt Fisher, junior). This show served as one of the company members' first Milton production of the season (up next The Musical Comedy Murders of 1940, Oct 27-28, 7:00PM). During the GTC adjudication, judges commented on the outstanding set design, costumes, tech crew, fantastic ensemble, believable characters and executing an emotionally powerful show! Another component of GTC is the opportunity to audition for various colleges and our senior, Sarah DeVoe received multiple callbacks.
It was a great weekend for Milton Theatre! Congratulations to all!
Congratulations to the Marching Band for an outstanding performance at this year's Sprayberry Southern Invitational on Saturday. The band earned top honors in the percussion, colorguard, majorette, general effect (tie) and drum major categories while placing second overall (out of eighteen bands) in this year's competition. The band will attend their final competition of the year this coming weekend at the Northwest Georgia Marching Band Championships at Cass High School.
The Milton cross country teams travelled north to Jasper, GA to compete in the Pickens & Grinnin’ Invite for another night-time race to conclude their regular season and came away with two team wins and two team runners-up finishes as they head to the region meet next weekend.
Predicted to be a close race on paper between the Lady Eagles and the 5A top-ranked Woodland Lady Wildcats, Milton (1st-34 pts) ended up being the easy winner. Junior Farrah Frith (1st-19:35) was the overall race winner. The Lady Eagles had all their scorers in the top-15 with 4 runners in the top-8 overall places. A superb race by sophomore Calista Cacciatore (3rd-20:04) ran close to a 20-second personal best and was closely followed by fellow sophomore Ella Grace Malcom (7th-20:51) and ever improving senior Genevieve Trainor (8th-20:52). Rounding out the scoring for Milton was senior captain Jessica Albregts (16th-21:14) as she led fellow senior Megan Stechschulte (20th-21:26), sophomore Leelah Dennis (26th-21:44). Also running varsity for the Lady Eagles were seniors Ellie Dickenson (37th-21:58), Ella Katekovich (41st-22:05) & Shelby Howerton (50th-22:28). There were 136 finishers.
Running against one of the top-5 all-class teams in the state, Milton (2nd-139 pts) bested a very competitive field of 17 schools to take runner-up honors. Junior Cory Chambers (5th-17:03) ran with the front group the entire race and survived a bad fall just past 2-miles to then rally and finish in the top-5. Sophomore Zach Patel (14th-17:28) was as far back as 30th and moved through the field to just miss the top-10 in a well-run race. Junior Oliver Stone (33rd-17:54) stayed with Patel most of the race until late and then with seniors Charlie Reynolds (captain, 39th-18:02 & Dylan Bowden (48th-18:13) & fellow junior Pearson Gillam (49th-18:13) pushed the Eagles into a secured 2nd place. Also running varsity were junior Jack Rea (69th-18:43), freshman Justin Sevel (70th-18:43) & junior Keller Wilson (71st-18:43) & sophomore Daniel Murray (91st-19:05). 165 runners finished the boys’ varsity race.
Team history was again made by the Lady Eagles as Milton (1st-15 pts) recorded the schools 11th “perfect score” in team history to easily outdistance eight scoring schools. The race highlight was the finishing stretch run by freshman Ivy Rindt (2nd-22:27) to garner runner-up honors. Directly impacting the team’s history making “run” were fellow freshman Rowan Katekovich (4th-22:56), fellow freshman Macy Schadt (5th-23:05), junior Gabby Beckmann (6th-23:19) in a season’s best and senior captain Sydnie Behrmann (7th-23:32). The Lady Eagles had 8 finishers in the first 14 overall positions.
Up against the strong Wolverine program out of West Forsyth (1st-15 pts), Milton (2nd-56 pts) beat back 12 scoring schools for runner-up honors. Leading the Eagles was sophomore Martin Sand (7th-19:06) and along with sophomore Joe Petkash (11th-19:16), senior captain Jorge Fabregas (12th-19:21), junior Benji Watry (15th-19:37) and sophomores Luke Erbey (19th-19:57) & Oliver Begali (20th-19:58) helped put Milton ahead of most of the teams racing. This was the largest race of the evening with 224 finishers.
The Milton cross country teams enter the post-season with the Region 5-7A GHSA championship meet Saturday, October 23 at Boling Park, in Canton, GA with the top-4 varsity teams and top-6 individuals qualifying for the November 6 GHSA State meet at Carrollton Elementary School in Carrollton, GA.
