With a new suit for prom on the line, senior Antonio Gonzales won Maricopa High School’s second annual Mr. MHS contest Friday in an eight-man field. Guest judges and the audience judged the contestants on talent, swimsuit, evening wear and interview in a light-hearted take on a beauty pageant.
Gonzales entered the contest “to have a good time,” which seemed to be true of all involved.
While Gonzales won a suit from Nick’s Menswear, first runner-up Brandon Korittky and second runner-up Nathan Wallin received $100 off a new suit. Aiden Jaegar was named People’s Choice.
Also entertaining wee Anthony Lee Morris II, Alex Hurley, Lucas Dial and Kade Kruse. Judges were Vice Mayor Henry Wade, Superintendent Tracey Lopeman, Principal Brian Winter, Miss City of Maricopa Ashley Lynn and teacher Chuck Cloud. Teachers Jenn and Tyler Miller hosted.
The event is a fundraiser for MHS programs.
