Mayville State Homecoming Week 2020 kicked off with some great tradition … the Lip Sync Battle. This lively event has become a much-loved ritual for our students. Of course, precautionary measures related to COVID-19 were a top consideration for organizers, the members of the Student Athlete Advisory Council. Large indoor gatherings aren’t recommended, but thankfully, we were able to hold the event outside under the lights at Jerome Berg Field on an absolutely gorgeous Monday night, a much safer environment.
Mason Rice, Stanley, N.D., and Mason Hart, Moorhead, Minn., were crowned Mayville State University’s Homecoming 2020 king and queen Monday, evening, Oct. 12. The coronation was held under the lights at Jerome Berg Field. Coronation followed the traditional Lip Sync Battle. The two Masons will reign over the university’s homecoming festivities Oct. 12 through 18.
Due to the predicted inclement weather on Saturday, Oct. 17, changes have been made to the homecoming schedule of events for alumni and friends.

Coronation for the homecoming queen and king will be held Monday evening, Oct. 12 immediately following the traditional Lip Sync Battle at Jerome Berg Field, at approximately 9:30 p.m. The homecoming royalty will reign over the university’s homecoming festivities Oct. 12 through 18.
