Quincy Valle shined both on and off the field, as the varsity football team’s kicker and also as Homecoming Queen.

Quincy Valle had to do a quick change out of her football uniform into her homecoming dress just before she was announced as Homecoming Queen. The Pirates’ varsity kicker had a good night on the field as well on Oct. 18, as Santa Ynez High School won 41-14 against the Cabrillo Conquistadors.

After the halftime ceremonies, she went back onto the field and kicked an extra point following another Pirates touchdown.

Coach Josh McClurg said he was very proud of her, and he loved that she kept her eye-black (the black paint under the eyes that football players commonly wear) when she changed into her dress.

Diego Buenrostro was chosen as this year’s Homecoming King.
