Connetquot hosts annual homecoming

Posted

Perfect fall weather and community pride was the backdrop for Connetquot Central School District’s annual homecoming game and parade, held on Oct. 7.

Fun-filled activities started with a Friday afternoon pep rally, during which the district’s sports teams and homecoming court were introduced. Each class built a float based on Battle of the Bands and wrote and performed a skit to prior to the football game. Juniors won the skit competition, with seniors, sophomores and freshman placing second, third and fourth, respectively.

Prior to the Friday night game under the lights, class floats, the marching band, cheerleaders and homecoming court were led down Seventh Avenue, around the neighborhood and to the football field as fans cheered from the sidewalks.

At the start of the game, a moment of silence was granted in memory of school photographer and former teacher Joe Maniaci, who was also grand marshal of the parade. During the halftime show, the cheerleaders motivated the already upbeat fans, and the marching band, kickline and color guard gave a flawless performance.

The T-Birds lived up to their reputation and name, claiming a 31-21 victory over West Babylon for a homecoming to remember for years to come.
