Spirit and Support at Harborfields Homecoming

On Saturday, Sept. 9, Harborfields held their homecoming parade and football game—culminating the week-long celebration of Harborfields spirit and pride.

Following Friday night’s pep rally, where seniors Sam Iglesias and Laura Davis were crowned king and queen, students put the finishing touches on their floats for the parade Saturday morning. This year’s float theme was music, and students got creative with their designs. In grade order, themes included electronic, jazz, country, and rock. On each float, and each class t-shirt, students included cancer awareness symbols to keep the cause at the forefront of the event. Each float collected donations from the crowd to fund research for childhood cancer, which is near to the Harborfields community’s heart. 

Much of the community came out for the parade to support the students, and waved and cheered as they traveled along their route from the Harborfields Public Library to the high school. 

At the homecoming game, the crowd anxiously awaited the start of the game against Kings Park. Some crowd members had large cut-outs of players’ heads, and shook them wildly and cheered when the team ran out onto the field. The Harborfields cheerleaders, marching band, and kick line all worked together in pepping up the crowd, and there was no lack of spirit in the stands that day.

The Harborfields Tornadoes defeated Kings Park 33 to 7, an amazing start to the season, as well as the school year.
