Kennedy High School Students thumbnail227773

Kennedy High School hosted its homecoming game and festivities on Sept. 24.

Ahead of the game, Kennedy held its inaugural tailgate for the community, which included snacks, lawn games, music and more.

John Lafkas and Sarina Khan were named homecoming king and queen, respectively. The court also included nominees Ben Greco, Eric Rogers, Josh Sheldon, Savannah LoGuidice, Fallyn Scheinkopf and Gabby Mazzafaro. Members of the district’s CHAMP (Culinary and Hospitality Applied Management) program, led by Michael DiGiovanni, manned the grills and snack stand, keeping a hungry crowd full.

The Kennedy band, led by Walter Avellaneda, provided musical interludes throughout the game. Cheer and kickline teams entertained the crowd, both during the game and at halftime. The Cougar school’s mascot, worn by Lauren Piscazzi, was also on hand to spread school spirit.

The Athletics Hall of Fame inducted its second class, which included alumni from 1969 to 2018.

Despite a valiant effort, the Cougars fell short to Sewanhaka High School, 41-33. Joe Vaccaro led the scoreboard, rushing for 108 yards, as well as a touchdown. He also threw two touchdowns for the Cougars.
