Baymen Pride Shines at Homecoming
The procession led with a police escort, followed by the Oyster Bay Marching Band, Central Administration, students, staff and parents from each school displaying beautifully decorated banners, and a motorcade of class floats illustrating school pride and this year’s theme, “seasons.” Rounding out the parade were the Homecoming King and Queen, seniors Kevin Hart and Kayleigh Crawford, in a convertible decorated with purple and gold balloons, the varsity cheerleaders and fire engines from a local fire company.
At Memorial Field, spirits ran high as the undefeated Baymen faced off against the Island Trees Bulldogs. The Baymen held a sizable lead, 14-0, in the second quarter and widened the gap to 21-0 in the third. They finished the game on top with a final score of 27-16. Half-time entertainment included a routine by the varsity cheerleaders and a lip sync performance by the senior class.
Totals at the end of the day for the Spirit Week/Homecoming contests, including Lip Sync, Bulletin Board Designs, Float, Banner and Dress Up, put seniors in first place, freshmen in second place, juniors in third and sophomores in fourth.
Thanks go out to all who made the Homecoming parade and game a success. Come cheer on the Baymen at their next home game against East Rockaway this afternoon, Oct. 26, at 3 p.m. The game was moved from Oct. 27 due to inclement weather. Fans should park in or near the Oyster Bay Train Station parking lot because Roosevelt Elementary School will be dismissing students between 3-3:30 p.m.
