Amityville HS Celebrates Homecoming


Amityville held its homecoming parade and game on Oct. 25 on the field at Amityville High School. On a beautiful, warm afternoon, the Warriors showed their pride as they took on the Westhampton Beach Hurricanes before a vocal crowd of supporters. Despite a spirited, gritty performance, the varsity football team fell to the Hurricanes 31-20.

Before the game, the Amityville community was treated to a colorful parade as the sophomore class float anchored the route with a very lifelike reconstruction of the school’s football field, complete with a goalpost. The Amityville Parent Teacher Council also showed their pride, waving to the parade audience as they went along on their float. The high school marching band and the Amityville Royal Court helped lead the crowd through the village and onto the field.

The halftime show featured performances from the cheerleading squad as well as the marching band and a trio of dancers. Amityville also announced its 2014 homecoming king and queen: Victor Akintola and Jeannine Hernandez, respectively. The candidates for king and queen were Joab Dorsainvil, Malcolm Mathis, Travon Duncan, Lillian Ayodele, Amber Knapp and Jenifer Morency.

Additionally, four members of the Amityville community were recognized as recent inductees into the Amityville Sports Hall of Fame. Reynolds Hawkins Jr., Oliver Hinckson, Cherese Hinckson and Jeanette Santos stood at midfield to receive applause for their recent induction.
