Homecoming is a time to see past friends that are home from college and to take part in many of the fun events.

The events during school include hallway decorating for each grade, spirit week, powder puff, and the pep rally.

On Friday, 5 October, the annual homecoming parade took place with the homecoming dance following. Saturday the sixth is when the homecoming boys’ soccer game and football game took place, with the homecoming King and Queen announced at halftime.

The traditional homecoming parade had a record turnout and was well-received by everyone. During the parade, spectators saw high-end cars take the homecoming court throughout the streets of Fleetwood with floats from each grade, club, and fall sports team following.

On Saturday, both the boys’ soccer team and football team had home games at Tiger Stadium. A  lot of fans came out to support both teams.

The soccer team took on Conrad Weiser during the day and won a thrilling overtime game, with Aaron Nelson scoring the winning goal.

The big homecoming football event was a great game to watch with Fleetwood winning 27-7 against Northern Lebanon. Homecoming court member Steve Hilborn led the team to victory with a game high three touchdowns.

The homecoming court, which was presented at half-time, included Carly Hawkins, Maureen McGarry, Sara Buck, Hanna Perone and Hannah Stump for the girls, and Sam Cabrera, Steve Hilborn, Zach Noll, Mark McGarry, and Dante Brown for the boys.

Maureen McGarry and Sam Cabrera were officially announced King and Queen and given their crowns.

“I feel honored to have my fellow classmates vote me homecoming king!” King Cabrera, a self-professed introvert, said. 

“It was pretty special and unexpected being named queen. To be voted by the whole school and selected from about 200 people makes me feel that people actually like me and know who I am,” said Queen McGarry.

With good weather and wins in both games, this year’s homecoming was a success. Tiger pride was at an all-time high.
