A sensational fall afternoon and community pride was the perfect backdrop for Bayport-Blue Point School District’s annual homecoming festivities, held on Oct. 15.

Fun-filled activities commenced with a weeklong spirit week and a Friday afternoon pep rally. Prior to the afternoon game against Babylon School District, the community lined the streets to cheer on the students who marched down Railroad Avenue and Snedecor Avenue with themed banners, the James Wilson Young Middle School and Bayport Blue Point High School marching bands, cheerleaders and floats, accompanied by the fire department, police and ambulance corps.

During the afternoon, residents, faculty and students packed the bleachers at Bob Sullivan Field and demonstrated their Phantom Nation Pride while dressed in school colors and shouting for the home team.

During halftime, 2022 Hall of Fame inductees Mark Casilletti (Class of 2010), Jordan Collins (Class of 2012), Jen Mercouris (Class of 2010), Brian White (Class of 2012), Mark Zetterberg (Class of 1972) and the 2010 4x400 boys relay team were announced by Director of Physical Education, Health and Interscholastic Sports Timothy Mullins.

Additionally, the nominees for homecoming queen were introduced and Erin Wuestmann was crowned homecoming queen, alongside Jake Meyn, who was crowned king at the pep rally.

The Phantoms demonstrated spirit and determination throughout the game and lived up to their reputation with a 28-0 win over Babylon High School to the delight of the community.
