Columbia high schools mark homecoming with football wins

*CORRECTION: The Hickman homecoming queen was chosen by a vote of the student body. An earlier version of this story incorrectly characterized the selection process.

Both Hickman and Rock Bridge high schools celebrated homecoming on Friday night. Both teams won their football games:

  • Hickman defeated Gateway Tech, a St. Louis area school, 19-18.
  • Rock Bridge defeated the Riverview Gardens Rams 36-32.
