Farmington High School students chose Alex Chadwick as the 2012 homecoming king, and Megan Grengs and Taylor Howie -- both -- as homecoming queens. The three were crowned during the coronation held Wednesday at Boeckman Middle School.

Every year, coronation organizers plan little games for the candidates to announce who the king and queen will be. This year, each candidate received a large puzzle piece. He or she had to try to place his or her puzzle piece into a precut board. The candidate whose puzzle piece fit was crowned.

Chadwick was able to put his puzzle piece into place and was crowned as homecoming king. When the senior girls tried to place their puzzle pieces in their boards, Grengs' piece fit -- and so did Howie's.

Mistresses of Ceremony Jena Lipham and Ann Korbein called it "a Farmington first," as Howie and Grengs were both crowned as queen. Both queens received their crowns, both received flowers, and both will reign as 2012 homecoming queen.
