Colt pride was soaring at the Oct. 13 homecoming festivities at Calhoun High School as the football team came out as victors against New Hyde Park High School.

During the weeklong festivities, the school’s hallways were decorated and students and staff alike donned the grey and blue school colors.

The community was treated to the annual ColtFest and pep rally before the big game, where each sport team was announced and took over the field for their entertaining choreography.

“The sports teams had great routines and I loved how each team supported the other,” said Principal Nicole Hollings. “ColtFest was filled with treats and activities leading up to an absolutely incredible performance. Ed Tumminelli and Eric Vivelo directed the instrumentalists in performing a rousing rendition of the ‘Game of Thrones’ theme and a Green Day song that was just incredible. The sound was thrilling and it set the stage for an outstanding pep rally.”

Gabe Wagner and Lauren Ameruoso, who according to Hollings, “epitomize the spirit of Calhoun,” were crowned homecoming king and queen, respectively.
