The W.T. Clarke High School Jack Boyle Memorial Stadium was a sea of maroon and gray as students, faculty and community members watched the Rams take on the Cold Spring Harbor Seahawks at homecoming on Oct. 14.  Attendees were treated to food and freebies from the East Meadow Teachers’ Association, the W.T. Clarke PTSA and the W.T. Clarke Parent Booster Club.

The game was marked by a festive halftime, during which the W.T. Clarke varsity cheerleaders, marching band and color guard gave a show-stopping performance for the crowd. Members of the East Meadow School District Board of Education, Superintendent of Schools Dr. Kenneth A. Card, Jr., and central administrators led the annual halftime parade procession. Representatives of the Class of 1967 served as grand marshal, and students showcased their class floats while tossing candy to the cheering crowd. The theme for this year’s floats was “decades,” which ranged from the 1950s to the 1990s.

At the rear of the parade, were members of the homecoming royal court who were all smiles as seniors Brendan Peters and Jessica Baum were recognized as homecoming king and queen. The court was rounded out by freshmen John Kern and Stephanie Frattiani as duke and duchess, sophomores Mike Heavey and Gabby Sferrazza as count and countess, and Matt Valverde and Natalie Long as prince and princess. 

As for the game, the Rams put forth a strong effort, but were ultimately defeated by the Seahawks, 26-7.
