UL's Homecoming Court continues duties before the big game

Posted: Updated:

They're all talented, smart, and most of all committed to UL, their home away from home. 

As members of the homecoming court, Maid Christina Hernandez says, "Fans will be able to see a bunch of girls who love their university, love their team, and want the best for everyone." 

As UL's 2017 homecoming game approaches, the queen and her court continue to do their royal duties around campus. Drumming up all the excitement they can for the big day.

Of the courts' duties, court member Mary McMahon says "Homecoming allows us to celebrate our Cajun pride and recognizing UL Lafayette for the amazing university that it is." 

It's not just about wearing the crown or sash, but about making memories and bringing students from all over Acadiana together as one.  

"UL homecoming, Abbeville, Lafayette, and all of the other cities represented by our homecoming court will all be phenomenal because we all have this sense of unity," says Shalanda Plowedon, UL Lafayette's 2017 Homecoming Queen.

"It means to represent something that is bigger than myself. Something that has been a tradition here on campus for a hundred years or so."

And that tradition of unifying a community is sure to continue for the next hundred years.
