COLUMBIA — This week, Missourian photographers documented Battle High School's first Homecoming Spirit Week and a Harry Potter-themed Triwizard Tournament designed by Columbia students.

In this picture by Mackenzie Bruce, Jennifer Caine entertains her 10-year-old daughter Kodi on Oct. 10 at Cosmopolitan Park. The family looks forward to the park's planned renovations, which will include features accessible to children with disabilities.

Missourian photographer Quint Smith captured this image of defensive linemen Kony Ealy, left, and Michael Sam taking down Florida quarterback Tyler Murphy on Saturday at Memorial Stadium. The Tigers defeated Florida 36-17, bringing their season performance to 7-0.

In this photograph by Fareeha Amir, Battle High School sophomore Neil Sanders emulates Michael Jackson on Wednesday as part of the school's first Homecoming Spirit Week.

Missourian photographer Jacob Hamilton shot this image of Battle High School juniors Blake Rosson, left, and Drue Horton, dancing at the school's first Homecoming dance. With no alumni to draw upon, the school is creating its own traditions for Homecoming.

In this photo by Jacob Hamilton, Missouri baton twirlers Halie Hart, left, and Courtney Chandler pose after marching band practice Friday behind the Hearnes Center. The two women, who have been involved with twirling for most of their lives, say they practice constantly in the days leading up to competitions.

Missourian photographer Joshua Boucher took this photo of Hickman High School teacher Terese Dishaw, right, consulting a map Friday as part of the first-ever Triwizard Tournament event at Shryocks Callaway Farms' Corn Maze.
