On Saturday, Sept. 22 the school hosted the annual homecoming dance. The day began with the parade through Hinsdale, then the homecoming football game, and ended with the Homecoming dance in the Field House.

The parade started at 9:30 a.m. and showcased the 26 homecoming court members. The band, color guard, and cheerleaders all performed in the parade as well.

The football game was at home and started at 12:00 p.m. The boys faced off against York High School and won 35-13.

The theme of this year’s Homecoming was “Hero Central”. The entrance to the field house was made to look like Gotham City to go along with this superhero theme.

“We came together well as a team. Both offense and defense were performing at high levels,” said Matt Bobak, senior running back. “It’s good to see this kind of play, and we have a good direction going into the second half of the season.”

After the parade and football game, Varsity Club members decorated inside the school and field house for the Superhero-themed dance. The dance started at 7:00 p.m. and lasted until 11:00 p.m. Tickets were $20 each, and all students were welcome. It had a DJ, 2 photo booths, and a dancefloor.

“This was my first homecoming, and I’m definitely looking forward to next year. All my friends were there, and we had a great time,” said Taylor Fodor, freshman.

The dance ended with the announcements of the homecoming king and queen. All students voted for king and queen through a school-wide poll sent to their emails after Friday’s homecoming court coronation assembly, which featured skits performed by each of the 13 court pairs. Sean Kelly won homecoming king, and Leah Stevens won homecoming queen.

“To be honest I did not expect this. Homecoming night was super fun, and it was great being with all the guys,” Kelly said.
