Members of the homecoming court include: senior girls Macy Brookshire, Aubrey Sperry, Kirsten Richards, and Savannah White; and senior boys Chance Bailey, Zach Butcher, Jacob Maldonado, Jacob Mirkes, and Ryan Snodgrass.

Schneider said Enid is a very tough team and the Millers are glad to have them on the schedule.

“We expect a great dual meet,” he said. “Our wrestlers have really started buying into our game plan from all three primary positions in wrestling: top, bottom and neutral.”
Schneider said having coachable kids who will make changes to their performances makes the difference in whether a team has success.

“I’m blessed as a coach to have such positive and disciplined young men to coach,” he said. “This pandemic has been tough on everyone and I feel we have responded well to the adversity that has been put in our face.”

Yukon entered Tuesday night’s match with a 5-1 dual meet record.
