Thanks to the participation of students, alumni, faculty, staff and the local community, Homecoming 2008 was a day to remember.

Over 180 people registered for this year’s 5K Race and Family Fun Walk and the event was a hit with participants of all ages. The 2007 race winners and course record-setters Andrew Foxenburg and Dee Koutsourais triumphed again in this year’s race. Foxenburg crossed the finish line with a new record time of 16:12.20, and Dee set the new record for the women’s category, finishing in 18:25.60. Kevin Reeves of New Alexandria came in second at 17:45.32, and 14-year-old Andre Otte of Beaver Falls finished third with a time of 18:09.50.

The 2008 homecoming court, comprised of representatives from each class, was honored during a ceremony before Geneva’s football game against Washington & Jefferson. Lindsay Moore, a senior business and human resources major from Sarver, Pa. and Alex Shaver, a senior student ministry major from Wellington, Ohio, were crowned this year’s homecoming king and queen.

Pete Hakewessell '88, a lieutenant commander in the U.S. Navy, traveled to Beaver Falls from Portugal to be at the event. Pete Ehrnfeldt '88 from Reading, Pa. hadn't been to campus for 20 years, but came this year. There were more than 80 members playing in the Geneva Alumni Band. The class of 1983 celebrated with a brunch on Saturday and a picnic on the property known as “Wally World” owned by class members Chuck and Linda (Hoover) Jackson. Trustee Andy Bernard ’83 organized the event. In addition, reunion events were held for the classes of 1988, 1993, 1998 and 2003.

The dedication of Reeves Field was a highlight of the day’s celebration. Thanks to the generous donations of Carl ‘43 and Anny Hughes, David Edgecombe ’45 and Carolyn (Edgecombe ’49) Deming, the new multipurpose press box was prominently recognized during the ceremony in memory of Geneva professor and athletic director, A.C. “Ace” Edgecombe.

Save the date for next year’s Homecoming on October 10, 2009.
