Helen Cave didn't let cool temperatures put a chill on Augusta Christian Schools' 50th anniversary homecoming football game Friday, when she was named the school's 2007 Homecoming Queen.
"It kind of made it more exciting," Cave, 18, said, adding that winning the crown was an unexpected surprise.
Cave, dressed in a full-length yellow gown, was escorted by her father, Mike Cave.
The senior is active in school as a member of the varsity cross country and track teams, chorus and all-state chorus, Project Jericho and Beta Club. She also is vice president of the student body and tutors math students.
"I'm happy to see she won," said senior Jennie Freeman, a fellow Homecoming Court member. "She deserves to."
Last year's Homecoming Queen Kerri King presented Cave with a tiara and roses before she was driven from the school stadium atop a convertible.
But for Cave, sharing the special evening with her fellow court members was what meant the most.
"A lot of them, we are very close friends," Cave said. "It is just an honor to be on the court with them."
Other members of the Homecoming Court are: senior Jennie Freeman, escorted by her father, Bill; senior Lauren Edmondson, escorted by her father, Doug; junior Annie Clifton, escorted by her father, Steve; junior Chelsea Banks, escorted by her father, Tom; sophomore Hannah Reimer, escorted by her cousin, Timothy Reimer; sophomore Lynnsey Edmondson, escorted by her uncle; freshman Hannah Moore, escorted by her father, Larry; and freshman Rachel Jones, escorted by her father, Alvin.
