Joining her in the Homecoming Royalty Court will be Senior Maid Katelyn Gilbert, Junior Maid Bethany Black, Sophomore Maid Emma Roland and Freshman Maid Tracy Efird.
Homecoming will be held prior to Mount Ida’s game against Mineral Springs next Friday. The Lions are still seeking their first win of the 2020 season after back to back last minute losses to 3A opponents Perryville and Jessieville.
Mount Ida will host the Bearden Bears this Friday. Seniors will be recognized at 5:30 p.m. with the game set to begin at 7 p.m.

Mineral Springs currently is 1-2 with a 57-20 victory over England in Week 1. They were defeated by Bearden in Week One 24-20 and forfeited last week’s game against 3A Fouke. Mineral Springs will host Gurdon this Friday.
Homecoming will begin at 5:30 p.m. with kick off scheduled for 7 p.m.
