It was certainly a day of celebration for students and staff members from Amityville Memorial High School on Oct. 28, as well as visiting guests, as the football team clinched a spot in the playoffs in their homecoming football game against Wyandanch. This culminated a day of merriment that included the annual parade, crowning of the homecoming king and queen, and halftime performances by the marching band and cheerleaders.

Marchers started their journey at the LIRR Amityville station and paraded down the local streets as onlookers cheered. Students dressed up and floats were decorated to represent this year’s theme of ancient civilizations. The best float award was given to the freshman class for their depiction of the Great Wall of China. 

Before the game, senior cheerleaders and football players were recognized and commended for their dedication to Amityville. The football team wasted no time establishing themselves once the game was underway, as a 14-0 lead after one quarter set the tone for a 33-6 win. The victory secured a place in the upcoming playoffs.  

At halftime, the crowd roared as Joshua Serrano and Irach’e Teague were named homecoming king and queen, and impressive performances from the cheerleaders and marching band capped off another homecoming celebration for Amityville.
