Spirit was soaring at Locust Valley’s homecoming and during Spirit Week leading up to the big day. From themed dress-up days to middle school and high school pep rallies, students and staff showed their support for the Falcons. It was a combination of that support and the varsity football team’s talent that led them to a 54-6 victory over the Roslyn Bulldogs.
The Falcons’ tremendous performance had the crowd cheering, clapping and ready for a festive halftime show. The varsity cheerleaders and kickline dazzled fans with their high kicks, acrobatics and extreme enthusiasm.
Before kickoff, the school celebrated with a homecoming parade that featured student-made floats. The procession traveled through Bayville and Locust Valley honking horns, waving and displaying Locust Valley green on their faces, clothes and floats.
The Falcons were not the only winners of the day. For the second year in a row, the Class of 2018 won first place for Best Float and Most Spirited. From the homecoming court, Edward Garcia and Danielle Dellaquilla were crowned homecoming king and queen, Jeremyer Medina and Samantha Nugent were crowned junior prince and princess, Matthew Verni and Anne Rose were crowned sophomore prince and princess, and Brock Sandillo and Ava Famiglietti were crowned freshman prince and princess.
Prior to the big game, students enjoyed a carnival with inflatables and cotton candy. A dunk tank raised money for the senior class and dunked several administrators. The Athletic Council, responsible for organizing homecoming and all of the events leading up to the day, provided food and refreshments at the concession stand.
With sunny skies, a mild breeze and so many victories, homecoming was a perfect day!
