Homecoming Friday

Homecoming week at Methacton High School came to an end on Friday, October 20 when the annual homecoming pep rally was held. All students missed the 7th period to support the festivities. Per normal, students cheered on their fall sports teams walk out along the track as they were celebrated for their seasons with the loudest cheer going to the PAC champion Methacton Field Hockey team. 

Following the walkout, the marching band, including the color guard, performed in front of the students lining the edge of the field. Students were then called to represent their class in a tug-of-war competition. The junior class started by strongly defeating the freshmen, followed by the seniors destroying the sophomores. That put the upperclassmen in a battle that was incredibly close for a while until the seniors broke through with a big win. Finally, an all-rookie team of teachers, as claimed by Mr. Rinieri, was demolished by the seniors.

The all-new “pie a teacher in the face” competition then took place as students paid for tickets to pie a teacher who volunteered. Mr. Ranieri picked the students as the event went along and those students were handed a pie to let the celebrations begin. The star of the show was Mr. Kistler, who didn’t sign up but was needed to help Mrs. McGruddy, apparently. Jake O’Neil won the award to pie her but instead, he threw a pie onto Mr. Kistler’s face, who was completely unprepared– something you would see in the WWE.

The Powder Puff game ended the afternoon activities which ended in a tie. Both the seniors and juniors got into the endzone once. As always the male cheerleaders on the sideline were hyping up the crowd and showing their skills off (as seen below).

Later that night, Methacton students returned to the stadium for a white out with the Warriors football team taking on a tough Owen J Roberts team. Elementary students were chosen for a halftime walkout with captains for spring teams and club cabinet members. In the end, Methacton fell 42-7 and are set for what will likely be their final home game against Pottstown. It will be a special Minithon blackout game as well as a PAC crossover matchup between two teams of the same record, 5 wins & 4 losses. Pottstown recently crushed Upper Merion 38-19, whom Methacton has not played. However, Pottstown did lose handily to Pottsgrove, whom the Warriors defeated 16-13 in the first game of the season. Pottstown clinched the 4A playoffs for the first time since 2018 while the Warriors are looking for a second straight berth after breaking the 8-year streak.

As always, a big shout-out to Mrs. Palmer and Mrs. Griffith who did a great job planning the events for the entire week.
