Chapman, Montero crowned 2013 homecoming king, queen

Monte Chapman, a physics major from Turtle Creek, and Maria Montero, a social work major from Dunmore, were crowned Slippery Rock University’s 2013 homecoming king and queen at halftime during Saturday’s football game.

SRU defeated Clarion 34-13.

The "road to the crown" began when SRU students voted for court candidates from among a pool of 12 men and 13 women. The top five vote getters among the women and men each secured a spot on the court. Students then voted online for king and queen from among those on the court.

Members of the homecoming court are:

• Olivia Giger, an early childhood major from North Huntingdon;

• Tesin Gnalian, an early childhood major from Sewickley;

• Sarah Hammond, a communication major from Hanover;

• Laura Ordaz, a physics major from Cooperstown;

• Brett Brown, a mathematics major from Aliquippa;

• Joshua Johnson, a secondary education major from Butler;

• Alex Merida, an information technology major from Easton; and

• Jared Stanley, an early childhood major from Youngwood.

More than 2,000 alumni participated in the "Legends of The Rock" homecoming events, including a parade, class reunions, soccer and football games.
