Homecoming attendees reflect on this year’s dance

Students worked their way into Raymond James Stadium for Homecoming Oct. 27. 

“Apart from the dancing, it was a little boring,” freshman David Sardina said. “It was great seeing my friends, but I think they should add a little more next year like a game room.” 

Unlike previous years, the dance took place in a long hallway at the Raymond James Stadium, a new venue choice made by the school.  

“I loved the venue,” junior Emerson Taylor said. “It was really spread out and didn’t feel crowded which was convenient.”  

The homecoming theme this year was “circus” and the venue was filled with striped decorations to align with it.   

“The decorations were cool,” sophomore Avery Alfonso said. “They looked really good in the venue set up.”  

Teachers and staff members sat along the entry way to check student’s tickets before entering. Chemistry teacher Heather Wakefield is a reoccurring teacher at this post.  

“It was one of our most well-attended,” chemistry teacher Heather Wakefield, who checked tickets at the event, said. “The venue was better than it has been in the past, and the decorations were amazing.”  

The majority of the music played was from a list of biggest hits. Students could request songs, and contrasting with the previous homecoming, slow songs were played.  

“Everything about this homecoming was nicer than the others,” senior Raymond Martinez said. “I liked the DJ. he played some good music.”
