Blue and Gold Shine During Homecoming Festivities

The beautiful fall weather set the stage as the West Islip community came together to celebrate homecoming on Oct. 23. Led by West Islip High School’s Marching Lions band, the blue and gold-clad community kicked off the day with a parade down Higbie Lane.

From the youngest Lions cheerleaders and football players to the color guard, kick line and varsity cheer squad, the West Islip community marched together for the walk to Wayne Shierant Field at Alumni Stadium. This year’s floats were tied to a Disney theme with the freshman class showing off “Finding Nemo,” the sophomores with the “Tangled” theme, the junior class featuring “Monsters Inc.” and the seniors designed around “Toy Story.” Homecoming royalty were Nick Scarmozzino and Sophia Leccese, named Mr. and Ms. West Islip, followed by runners up Mason Barany and Lea Parascandola.

Once at the football field, the varsity Lions took on Division II rival Bellport. While the Lions weren’t able to secure the homecoming win, some of the highlights included a sack of the Clippers quarterback in the first quarter, a 10-yard run and a 31-yard pass in the second quarter, and a fumble recovery for a touchdown in the fourth quarter.
