Community members, administrators, staff and students did not let the rain hinder their spirits as the Amityville Union Free School District hosted its 2018 Homecoming festivities on Oct. 13. Although the parade was canceled due to the inclement weather, the skies cleared and the football game went on without a hitch at Amityville Memorial High School. Stands filled with supporters who dressed in their best red and white to watch the Warriors take on the East Islip Redmen.

To kick off the game, players stood on the field in their pink socks in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month as the school’s marching band performed the “Star-Spangled Banner.” During the game, snacks, refreshments and Amityville apparel were sold. Attendees were also encouraged to visit and vote for the best superhero-themed class float, which were displayed outside the field. Throughout the game, community members and students held their red foam fingers high as they cheered on the Warriors with the cheerleaders. 

The halftime show featured performances by the marching band and cheerleaders. The Homecoming court, dressed in their best outfits, were announced onto the field where seniors Devontay Rickenbacker and Kayla Barrett were crowned the Homecoming king and queen. The senior class also earned first place in the float contest with their Avengers-themed creation.
