It was an afternoon and evening brimming with school spirit on Sept. 21 as the Calhoun High School community came together to celebrate their annual ColtFest and homecoming game.

Various music ensembles led by directors Eric Vivelo and Ed Tumminelli teamed up for an Ed Sheeran medley while student singers Emily Turner and Gianna Perazzo belted out the vocals.

All of the fall teams had the opportunity to perform at the afternoon pep rally. The Bellmore-Merrick Lady Sharks performed the hit toddler song “Baby Shark” and even had a teammate dressed up as a shark.

Corey Jones and Jamie DiBartolomeo were crowned homecoming king and queen, respectively, and Charlie the Colt horsed around on the field and in the stands to get the crowd on their feet.

The Colts took on Levittown’s MacArthur High School in a nail-biter of a match up.

“The game was an incredible battle and well-played on both sides of the line of scrimmage,” said Principal Nicole Hollings. “MacArthur pulled out the win 21-20. While it was heartbreaking, it will certainly fuel our fire to work harder and perhaps meet MacArthur again down the road in playoffs.”
