The Bulldog community came out in full force to support the varsity football team during the annual homecoming festivities.          

The events began on Oct. 6 with the middle school pep rally. Student-athletes from all teams showed their Lindy Pride, donning green and white and cheering from the bleachers. The homecoming fun continued into the evening as the high school pep rally brought together all sports teams, the marching band, dance teams and the cheerleaders to further illustrate a unified Lindenhurst. To conclude the high school pep rally, Maria Kaminskey and Dylan Pereira were announced homecoming queen and king, respectively, to the loud applause of their fellow schoolmates.The student council and athletic department coordinated the weekend’s activities.

The parade on Oct. 7 began at Fireman’s Park, made its way down Wellwood Avenue and ended at Lindenhurst Middle School. Each class float represented a different Disney film. The freshman class float reflected the movie “Up,” the sophomore class depicted “Pirates of the Caribbean” and the junior and senior classes portrayed “Aladdin” and “Alice in Wonderland,” respectively.

At half time, there were special performances from the school’s marching band, color guard, cheerleading squads and dance team. At that time, it was announced that the junior class won the competition with their beautiful float. In the end, the Bulldogs reigned victorious as they beat the Patchogue-Medford Raiders 30-0.
