Homecoming is one of the biggest events of the beginning of the school year. With a football game followed by a dance, it’s no wonder students mark their calendars.
Even though there was rain, Holliston fans and the Red Sea still showed up to support the team. The people in the stands were wrapped in blankets and sitting on towels, but still showed Holliston pride and kept up a steady stream of cheers.
The night began with the football game starting at six. The Panthers maintained a lead throughout most of the game and ended the third quarter ahead by 20 points. The fourth quarter began with a touchdown and two point conversion from Westwood making it 34-30. With 2:22 left, the Wolverines scored again, and missing the two point conversion took the lead at 36-34. The Panthers had one last possession but couldn’t quite finish and the game ended with the final score of Westwood: 36, Holliston: 34.
During halftime, the homecoming court made an appearance on the field. This year’s court was made up of Alexis Aylward, Jack Barrett, Rick Brown, Meghan Burke, Brian Chi, Jillian Davis, Betsy Hamre, Jake Obid, Casey Prendergast, and Ryan Vazza.
Even though the dance started at seven, most students didn’t show up until later, after the game. The cafeteria was hot, but that didn’t stop anyone from busting a move or generally having a great time.
The news of Holliston’s first loss of the season spread fast. Most of the football team wasn’t at the dance.
When the final song ended at 9:45, all upperclassmen grabbed a chair and sat around the DJ booth, with underclassmen sitting nearer to the back. Superlatives were announced, prompting much applause and cheering from the seniors.
