On October 6, 2017 Holliston High School held its annual Homecoming. Consisting of a football game followed by a dance, the night marked the beginning of the Class of 2018’s senior year, and the freshmen’s first high school event.
The night opened with a rocky start. The football game began 45 minutes later than its stated kick-off time due to earlier events on the turf field. This didn’t stop the Red Sea from showing up in full force, decked out in all black to support the team.
The Panthers started off on a rough note, and were never able to fully recover. Medfield started out strong, leading the Panthers 13-0 at the half.
Right before halftime, the Panthers were able to get on the board, scoring a touchdown to trail the Warriors 13-6.
During halftime, the Class of 2018 Homecoming Court was announced and presented at center field. This year’s court consisted of Ryan Benco, Tyler Dunn, Bridget Lombardi, Chloe Londoñyo Ayr, Emily McConnell, Matthew O’Connell, Juliette Plante, Abby Rae Wells, and Ben Thomas.
Beginning the fourth quarter the Panthers had a chance to take the lead, catching up 13-12, with a touchdown pass from senior quarterback Ryan Benco to senior Mikey Nash, but the Panthers were unable to finish victorious, with a final score Medfield 28, Holliston 12.
Following the game was the Homecoming dance. Although the dance began at 6:30, the majority of students didn’t arrive until 9:00pm, towards the end of the game.
Everyone was decked out in this year’s theme, sports jerseys, and hit the dance floor and had a great time. The loss of the football team, didn’t seem to damper the mood as many of the players arrived later in the dance.
At around 9:45, students gathered together, upperclassmen in the front, and underclassmen in the back to reveal the winners of this years Superlatives.
Following Superlatives, students danced until 10:15 enjoying their friends, and celebrating high school.
