Warriors Win for Homecoming


A spirited crowd cheered Amityville Memorial High School’s football team on to victory during the annual homecoming celebration on Oct. 8.

The festivities began with the homecoming parade, which went from the train station to the high school. It featured the marching band, cheerleaders, student organizations, Disney movie-themed floats, school district officials and the homecoming court.

After enjoying hamburgers and hot dogs served up by the senior class, fans settled into their seats to watch the Warriors take on the West Babylon Eagles.

Players, wearing pink socks for Breast Cancer Awareness Month, stormed onto the field through a “Let’s Go Warriors” banner held up by the cheerleaders. With a 35-32 score, Amityville earned its first win of the season.

The halftime show featured performances by the marching band and cheerleaders. Members inducted into the Amityville Sports Hall of Fame the night before were honored on the field. Seniors Christian Bethea and Meybel Orellano were crowned the homecoming king and queen.
