Long Beach High School celebrated their homecoming under the Friday night lights at Veterans Field on Oct. 13. Prior to the game, students and family attended the annual homecoming carnival, sponsored by the Student Government Organizations in the middle school parking lot. At the carnival, attendees had the opportunity to interact with club members and participate in games and fun activities while showing their Long Beach pride.
Later that evening, fans filled the bleachers of Veterans Field showcasing their school spirit by sporting blue and white, as they cheered on the Marines in the much-anticipated football game against the New Hyde Park Gladiators. Before the game, senior cheerleaders and football players were escorted by family and friends to the field to celebrate their last high school homecoming game. Long Beach fans kept their spirits high as they were accompanied by the Pep Band in the bleachers, and the cheerleaders on the track, cheering on the Marines.
The halftime performances from the high school’s Colorguard, Pep Band, and cheerleaders, had attendees up on their feet, dancing, and cheering on the student performances. Afterwards, the Long Beach youth football players raced across the field in their annual Bulldog Dash and Nanichi Arroyo-Hill, and Jacqueline Freitag were crowned homecoming king and queen.
