OBHS Homecoming a Day of Pride
Purple and gold were out in full force as students, staff and the community came together for Oyster Bay High School’s Homecoming game and parade, Oct. 12.
In one of the most spirited displays of Baymen pride, the Homecoming parade flowed through local streets to Memorial Field as the rhythmic beat of the Oyster Bay Marching Band filled the air. Next in step were Central Administration; students, staff and parents from each school displaying beautifully decorated banners; and a motorcade of colorful class floats illustrating this year’s theme, “Movies.” Rounding out the procession were the Homecoming King and Queen, seniors George Anagnostopoulos and Jacqueline Romanelli, donning their crowns and waving to onlookers, the varsity cheerleaders shaking purple and gold pom-poms, and fire engines from a local fire company.
At Memorial Field, fans cheered on the Baymen as they faced off against Carle Place/Wheatley. The varsity cheerleaders pumped up the crowd with a rousing half-time performance, followed by a high-energy lip sync routine by the senior class. While the Baymen could not claim victory (23-6) this year, the spirit of Homecoming and community still made the day special for all involved.
Thanks go out to all who made the Homecoming parade and game an enjoyable event for everyone. Come support the Baymen at their next home game against Clarke High School, Nov. 2 at 3 p.m. Senior athletes will be honored during a brief ceremony preceding the game.
