2022 Homecoming King and Queen

Lucas Martinez and Jemma Arbuckle have been crowned the 2022 Homecoming royalty for Oklahoma Christian University.

The crowning occurred on Saturday, Nov. 5, between the season-openers for Oklahoma Christian basketball.

Arbuckle said she was surprised when the announcement came. 

“People told me they thought I would be queen, but I didn’t really think it was possible,” Arbuckle said. “Payton and Taylor are incredible girls, and I thought any of us would be deserving.”

Martinez said he did not see his crowning coming either.

“I did not expect it, but I am incredibly thankful for the honor,” Martinez said.

Both representatives elaborated on what this honor means to them. 

To Martinez, being homecoming king means he represents Oklahoma Christian.

“It means I represented Oklahoma Christian and its values, its morals,” Martinez said. “It means my peers saw me as a leader and worthy of being Homecoming king.”

To Arbuckle, it represents the theme of this year’s Homecoming: legacy.

“Oklahoma Christian has a long legacy of incredible people being named king and queen,” Arbuckle said. “I am so humbled to be a part of that group.”

On the basketball side, the lady Eagles won their match against the York University Panthers 89-53. Men’s basketball also won their game against the Warriors of Sterling College, KS, with a final score of 81-50.
