The Lynbrook community came together on Sept. 16 to root on the Lynbrook High School Owls as they took on the Hewlett Bulldogs. Administrators, the board of education, faculty, students and families dressed in their best green and gold for the district’s annual tradition.

To kick off the homecoming festivities, Lynbrook High School held their pep rally on Sept. 15 where students showed their pride and the king and queen were crowned. Seniors Hope Germanakos and Justin Harvin, number 56 on the Owls, were named royalty among their peers.

On the afternoon of Sept. 16, the homecoming court along with administrators, board members, students, cheerleaders, kickline and marching band made their way from Lynbrook High School to Marion Street Elementary School for their annual parade. They cheerfully waved to residents and chanted in excitement as they marched through town.

Crowds arrived at the football game where the Lynbrook PTA greeted them. Donations were encouraged to fund scholarships for the Lynbrook High School seniors. Lynbrook apparel, pompoms, food and drinks were also sold to support the scholarship cause.

Before the anticipated game began, senior members of the school’s kickline, cheer team and football team were announced onto the field with their loved ones. The Owls then ran onto the field as the community cheered in excitement.

The varsity cheerleaders pumped up the crowd throughout the game, tossing t-shirts to fans and starting chants. During the halftime show, the cheerleaders and kickline showcased their spirited routines and the marching band and color guard performed. Senior band leader Samantha Rizzo impressed the crowd with her singing abilities as she sang along to the music.  

The Owls made the community proud as they ended the day with a win against the Bulldogs, 33 to 14.
