Homecoming Pep Rally Recap

Students filtered into the auditorium last Thursday, a buzz of energy. The Homecoming game against Bush High School at Mercer Stadium was mere hours away and hopes were high. 


“I think [the game’s] going to be very hype, exciting, loud, and we’re going to win,” Stars Dancer Jasmine Jackson said.


The Homecoming pep rally opened with the cheer team performing their captivating routine, followed by the school Fight Song performed by the band and cheer team. The choir, American Sign Language (ASL) club, and NJROTC collaborated on a heartwarming rendition of the national anthem.


“It was nice to be able to do something for my school to show my spirit,” ASL Club Vice President Emma Layton said.


During the pep rally, the title of Lord and Lady was awarded to Mr. Garrett Oakley and Ms. Alison Dunn respectively.


Following a lively performance from the Stars, the Homecoming Court nominees presented themselves to the school. 


Then, the long-standing tradition of senior football players dancing in tutus and cheerleader outfits commenced. The crowd roared as the varsity football players danced and even performed advanced cheer routines to popular songs such as “I’m Just Ken” and “Barbie World”.


“I think the pep rally will be the catalyst for the game so if we’re super hype for the pep rally, we’re going to win the game,” Jackson said.


Not only was the pep rally a spotlight for the upcoming football game, but other sports captains for volleyball, cross country, and tennis had a chance to present their most recent updates.


As usual, the pep rally ended with more dancing, cheers, music, and an overall sense of camaraderie.


Jackson’s predictions were correct as later that evening, Clements beat Bush 44 to 21.
