Homecoming 2011

Mother Nature may have rained on the parade, but she couldn’t dampen Islip’s spirit as the Buccaneer faithful came out in force to cheer on the varsity football team against the Eastport-South Manor Sharks for Homecoming 2011. Playing through the rain, sleet, and mud, the Bucs handily defeated the Sharks 35-0. The win helped propel the team into the playoffs, where they will face Huntington High School at home on Friday, November 4 at 7:00 pm.

To gear up for the festivities, the student body participated in a spirit week celebration. Throughout the week, the classes participated in pajama, twin, wacky, and hippie days, culminating on Friday with a pep rally, with the students wearing their class colors. To complete Homecoming 2011, the high school hosted a dance where the homecoming court was announced. This year’s King and Queen are Terrance Foley and Isabella Eccleston.
