It was a great day of fun and community pride as family, staff and friends gathered for homecoming on the grounds of Division Avenue High School (DAHS). The kickoff to the weekend commenced with a pep rally in the gymnasium, where students proudly wore their school colors and cheered for their athletes.
The DAHS marching band led the parade, followed by the kickline team, cheerleaders, Wisdom Avenue’s marching band, homecoming king and queen candidates and students who accompanied colorful and creatively themed class banners. Prior to the start of the game, senior football players, cheerleaders and kickline team and marching band members were honored alongside their parents for having dedicated many hours on and off the field. Members of the board of education, high school administrators, student council members and coaching staff were also on hand to participate in a ribbon-cutting ceremony with Legislator Dennis Dunne (Class of 1968), who donated a new scoreboard for the athletic field.
Senior Iliana Tzanis’ impressive singing of the national anthem signaled the official start to the game against Valley Stream South. At halftime, the cheerleaders riled up the crowd with cheers and stunts, followed by a spectacular musical performance by the marching band and a dancing demonstration by the kickline team.
A much-awaited moment then arrived as candidates James Reilly and Felicia Comuniello were named homecoming king and queen, with Devin Votta and Emily Doglio announced as prince and princess. Congratulations are also in order for candidates Rob Cracchiolo, Tom Critelli, Khondker Hossan, Theresa O’Neill, Ashley Stinnet, Caitlin Sweeney, Iliana Tzanis and Matt Wilson, who were members of the homecoming court.
