We all know that Locust Valley students and staff are superheroes – at this year’s homecoming, they proved it! The day’s  superhero theme meant floats, costumes and banners depicting the LV Falcon in various superhero forms. Freshman, sophomores, juniors and seniors each created a superhero float for the parade that took them from Centre Island through Bayville and Locust Valley before arriving at the high school for the homecoming festivities.

Senior football players, cheerleaders and kickline members were honored as they prepared to participate in the last homecoming game of their high school careers. Called up individually with their parents, the seniors were thanked for their dedication and gifted with flowers.

The football game against West Hempstead began with fans cheering in the stands, dressed in Locust Valley green, and listening to the sounds of the Locust Valley band. Halftime brought the introduction of Locust Valley’s own superheroes – the Wall of Fame honorees. Performances by the kickline and cheerleaders provided spirited entertainment, as did a performance by the LVHS band.

Finally, the crowning of the homecoming court brought the nominated students front and center, awaiting the results of the vote by the student population. All of the nominees were winners, but crowned that day were seniors Johnny Morgan and Julia Ryan homecoming king and queen; John Pedranghelu and Kaylee Flanagan for freshmen prince and princess, Sam Ward and Caroline Rawa as sophomore prince and princess; and Owen McBride and Samantha Fornaro for junior prince and princess.

The homecoming school spirit award went to the senior class, and the freshman class took first place for best float.

Thanks to the hard work of staff, students and parents, this year’s homecoming was a spirited and fun way to celebrate Locust Valley’s student athletes.
