Students dressed as circus animals roamed Chaminade’s West Hills campus on Monday morning, while their middle school counterparts in Chatsworth dressed in circus-inspired outfits filled the DeLong Center for loud and spirited rally. This kind of celebration can only mean one thing – a circus themed Homecoming has descended upon Chaminade.
While alumni don’t officially return for the festivities until Friday night’s gridiron match-up against Loyola High School, students are in a full frenzy all week long. The middle school passed the rally torch onto the high school, and on Tuesday students streamed into the Uribe Center for their rally. Classes showed off their school spirit, while Marianist general administration visitors, Fr. Andre Fetis and Bro. Michael John McAward judged the competition. The guests from Rome deemed the juniors the most spirited and students voted Alex Mansour ’14 Homecoming king.
The fun continues through the rest of the week, with games and competition at lunch on Wednesday and a festival at the high school on Thursday. On Friday, Chaminade’s campuses will be a sea of blue and orange. Homecoming food booths will open at 5:00 p.m. on the West Hills campus, just above Booster Stadium. The game kicks off at 7:00 p.m., and the Homecoming queen will be announced at halftime.
Chaminade alumni are invited to come back to their alma mater for a nostalgic and exciting evening. There will be a special alumni section (adults only), located behind the scoreboard; which is also where alumni can stop by to pick-up a t-shirt. To gain entrance to the alumni section, Eagle alumni will need a wristband, which can be picked up at a ticket booth. The only gate with access to this section is located in the parking lot closest to the scoreboard.
Reunions for the Classes of 1964, 1984, 1989, 1994, and 2004 close out Chaminade’s Homecoming Week.
