Jesuit High School's festive Homecoming Week reached a crescendo Thursday night (Oct. 1) with a raucous Pep Rally in the Tiger Palace.
Nick Leone '16 was crowned "Baby King," the Academy of the Holy Names dance team and Jesuit cheerleaders performed, a flag football game was played, and Fr. Vincent Capuano, S.J., whose mysterious impact on the Jesuit football team's record-setting defense has become legendary, closed the show to a rousing ovation.
Each day this week, Jesuit students have embraced the wacky dress-down themes of Homecoming and taken advantage of the rare opportunity to forego the school dress code. Friday (Oct. 2) is Fun Day, as the students will decorate campus before heading home early at the 1:00pm dismissal time.
Everyone returns to Jesuit on Friday evening for the Homecoming celebration, beginning with the BBQ at 5:00pm in the nostalgically adorned cafeteria, and football game at 7:30pm at Corral Memorial Stadium, as the unbeaten Tigers face District foe Middleton. Stay tuned through halftime as Lee Pallardy '69 is recognized as the Alumnus of the Year.
Among the special offerings that evening at Homecoming are face-painting, sno-cones, cotton candy, and a commemorative Homecoming photo with the Tiger mascot.
Tickets are required for the Homecoming BBQ, which is sold out. Football game tickets are $5.00.
