Falcons celebrate Homecoming 2019
Scripps Ranch High School students enjoyed activities before and during the traditional Homecoming football game against Crawford High School on Oct. 11. Pregame events at the school Quad included pizza, music and games. Some made signs for the game at a special booth.
The Scripps Ranch High marching band performed on the field before the game, at halftime and after the game. Members of the school choir also performed at halftime.
Earlier, the students from different classes built small floats for a float competition and the floats were paraded during halftime to raucous cheers from the audience. The floats, which included one colorful depiction of Spiderman, were a bit comical.
Halftime also included the presentation of the Homecoming Court, and the presentation of this year’s king and queen.
Once the game ended and after the crowd and players stood for their school anthem, the fans in The Cage student section sang along loudly to “Sweet Caroline.”
Homecoming week concluded the next night with the Homecoming Dance at the school on Oct. 12.
