Springfield High School Celebrates Homecoming

The Springfield High School kicked off its homecoming festivities on Monday, October 1, as the entire school participated in spirit week.

There was Blue and Gold Day, Twin Tuesday, Wacky Sock Wednesday, and Crazy Cap Day.

SHS ended its week with Color Day with each class wearing its designated color. While seniors wore black and juniors white, sophomores and freshman wore blue and yellow, respectively. Before the big game that night, students gathered in the football stadium for a pep rally. Here, students competed against one another, as well as teachers, in events like water balloon toss and pyramid cheer stand while listening to the SHS Marching Band.

The crowning of Homecoming King and Queen during halftime of Friday night's game capped off a memorable homecoming experience. Winona Campo, Mary Flaherty, Zoe Hunchak, Anne Maull, and Camryn Shea all took the field as the queen nominations, while Kevin Deal, Dominic Glisson, Jacob McAndrews, Phillip Shovelin, and Dan Pennestri were the king nominations. After the votes were tallied, Dan Pennestri and Anne Maull were crowned Homecoming King and Queen.

The Cougars, who took on Harriton in its final home game of the season, jumped out to an early 28-0 lead in the first quarter before holding on for a 42-8 win. Springfield remains undefeated as its record improves to 7-0.
