Homecoming 2019

“It’s a really fun experience even if you don’t get hypnotized, you get to see your friends dance around,” Olivia Fontes, local Coe-Brown Northwood Academy senior, said when asked about the annual hypnotist show by Steve Wonker that kicks off Homecoming each year.

Homecoming has been an annual event at Coe-Brown Northwood Academy for several years now, experiencing a revival a few years back. Each year Coe-Brown’s sports teams hold events for spectators, this year starting on Saturday with the Bass Fishing Team at 8 AM. Cross Country competes with Bow and Portsmouth High School at 9 AM, followed by both the Girl’s Junior Varsity and Varsity at 12 AM against Hanover High School. Boy’s Junior Varsity and Varsity begins at 3 PM, competing against Kennett High School, as the Girl’s Reserve Volleyball begins at 2:30 PM, with Junior Varsity starting at 3:45 PM, and Varsity at 5 PM against Gilford.

When asked about whether the Boy’s Varsity Soccer game against Kennett would be a quality match, center defensive midfielder, Jarred Pelletier, said, “I would say that you can’t go into any game underestimating your opponent. You always have to be ready for anything, you don’t know what players could have possibly been pulled up, and on top of that the conditions aren’t looking very good for Saturday so any little bounce could change the game”. Spectators can expect a new playing formation from the boys this year, “For the game hopefully it will work in our favor, against theirs,” Jacob Radwan, center attacking midfielder, commented and when asked about the future prospects of the team he said, “Yes we have high hopes this year. But a lot of hard work in training has to be done first to get to those goals”.

Homecoming also hosts a variety of different events for those not interested in viewing sports. FCCLA has a pancake breakfast at 8 AM. Clubs from around Coe-Brown will be hosting different events throughout campus and concessions will be offered.

The Homecoming Dance will be hosted by the Class of 2021 in the Gerrish Gym at 7 to 10 PM. Snacks, water, and goodies will be sold. “The Class of 2020 is selling handmade scrunchies,” said Ally Wheeler, a class officer for the Class of 2020.
