A rainy day didn’t dampen the spirit of the West Babylon community as the district celebrated its homecoming on Oct. 22.

 Starting with a pep rally the night before, students showed off their school spirit with dance and cheer performances. Even though the floats didn’t get to parade around the community due to the weather, all the hard work of the classes was still recognized as the floats parked in the Senior High School lot for all to see on Monday morning.    

For the big game, the Eagles took on the East Islip Redmen. Despite their best efforts and a fourth-quarter touchdown, the Eagles fell short and were defeated 26-6. A “Pirates of the Caribbean” themed halftime show was performed by the marching band.

Following the day’s festivities, the district joined together for a homecoming dance later in the evening, where the homecoming king and queen were announced.
