Just like that, another Spirit Week and Homecoming have come and gone!
This year the Spirit Week themes were:
Monday: America Day
Tuesday: Hawaiian Day
Wednesday: Decade Day
Thursday: Jersey Day
Friday: Class Color Day
Seniors led the way with the most participants on Decade and Class Color Days. Juniors had just as much spirit, rocking America and Jersey Days. The sophomores took the crown for Hawaiian Day.
The annual Spirit Week Rally was held on Friday, Oct. 25 and included performances by our band and cheerleaders, along with exciting events such as a race across the gym with teams wrapped in saran wrap. A noise competition, judged by Doc DeFranzo, revealed which class was the loudest – spoiler alert: the Seniors won, but the Juniors made it a close contest.
That night, Hanover hosted North Quincy for our Homecoming game and won 33-6. During half time, this year’s Homecoming court was announced. Seniors Bella Craft and Evan Bilton are Hanover’s Homecoming Queen and King! Sara Norton, Erin Halpin, and Lauren Reynolds along with Ethan Ghostlaw, Ethan Richie, and Tim Sullivan were also recognized as our Homecoming Court.
On Saturday, Oct. 26, HHS held its annual Homecoming Dance. Except for the abundance of crowd surfing, the dance went on as usual and this was the final event of our Spirit Week for 2019. Check out some pictures below!
