Homecoming is an annual tradition in high schools across the country, and Hingham shares in this spirited tradition. Homecoming festivities kicked off at the beginning of this past week with spirit week that had themes for every day. On Friday, October 20, the theme was red-out for the annual fall pep rally. The pep rally happened during G Block.

It started with all the fall sports teams walking across the field to selected music. The crowd cheered them on as they walked to sit on the side of the turf. Seniors Isabel McCabe and Johnny Laine were the MCs of the event and did a great job of getting the crowd energetic as senior Lily Samoska says, “It was so much fun to get everyone out there together to come to support our fall activities! I think we have to give a ton of credit to the stucco spirit committee and MCs Johnny and Isabel for keeping the energy high and bringing the enthusiasm! I can’t wait for the next pep rally in winter!! The pep band also set the tone for the high levels of energy going into the pep rally. They killed it!””

Next, the seniors from the football team joined the dance team seniors to perform a specially choreographed dance for the crowd. After this, each of the football seniors chose a teacher to honor, and they all took a picture together with their teacher of choice. Then, an exciting announcement was made by Coach Q as he told the crowd that Hingham High School had won the Holmes Award for the fifth consecutive year. This award is granted to the school with the highest number of varsity wins across all sports, and he also announced that a new banner would be made for this accomplishment. The banner was then brought onto the field and shown to the crowd for the first time.

Lastly, a fun water game was played with volunteers from any grade. There were several teams sitting in chairs and the first person had a bucket of water. They had to pour the water into progressively smaller cups, and whoever had the largest amount of water in their smallest cup was the winner. The spirit week leading up to this got the whole student body excited for homecoming on Saturday. Sophomore Sammy Price says,  “The pep rally was a great way to end this spirit week, and I really loved the water game.” 

This pep rally set the tone for what is sure to be an exciting set of games followed by a fun dance. Spirit activities such as the pep rally really embody Hingham High School’s support for all sports.
