Colorado Academy Homecoming on Saturday, September 15, 2018.

Even record-breaking heat could not reduce the enthusiasm at Colorado Academy’s 2018 Homecoming. Athletic Director Bill Hall (with his drum) and CA’s Mustang mascot Gus launched the weekend of fun and competition at a Friday all-school spirit rally, with cheers, candy, and mock battles.

On Saturday, Lower School students gathered for their annual bike ride around campus, led by Head of School Mike Davis, PhD. Younger students sampled cotton candy, got their faces painted, and played games of skill and chance at the Carnival. Parents shopped for treats at the Harvest Festival Farmer’s Market. Automobile aficionados could imagine themselves driving the vintage cars on display, including a Jaguar, Mercedes, and Land Rover. Everyone enjoyed a barbecue lunch under the “Big Tent.”

CA Homecoming is rich in tradition, but around lunch time, all heads turned upward for a first! An airplane flew over the campus towing a banner: “Colorado Homecoming 2018 Go Mustangs!”

The Mustangs must have taken this aerial inspiration to heart. CA teams competed at home in Tennis, Field Hockey, Volleyball, and Soccer, and the day culminated with wins for the Varsity Field Hockey Team and the Varsity Boys Soccer Team.
