Homecoming 2016

Homecoming week wraps up with friends, festivities

Maverick pride filled the streets of the College Park District on Saturday as alumni, students, faculty, staff, and community members soaked up the fun of Homecoming 2016.

Dillian Frelow, business management and marketing junior, and Keri DeCay, business management senior, were crowned Homecoming king and queen at halftime of the men's basketball game.

The Maverick men won 89-82 against Texas Southern on Saturday, and the women's team scored 75-54 over UT San Antonio on Sunday, both at College Park Center.
