It was a sea of maroon and grey on Oct. 15 as the Mepham High School Pirates took on H. Frank Carey High School on homecoming.
After a fierce battle, the Pirates fell to the Seahawks, 36-33. School spirit was infectious as fans cheered and the band, directed by Brian Neiderman, kept the tempo upbeat.

Tim Tracy and Katie Carron were crowned homecoming king and queen during halftime after being paraded around the track in a pirate ship float.

“Homecoming is always a special time at Mepham,” said Principal Michael Harrington. “It’s wonderful to see the community come together to celebrate school pride.”

Mepham High School social worker Theana Cheliotes and the school’s Key Club adviser said the club was inspired to participate in the district’s new initiative to help develop a food pantry at the central administration building.

“This weekend’s Homecoming for Hunger food collection served as a great kick off,” added Cheliotes. “You can say it was a touchdown.”
