The traditional homecoming parade returned to East Islip on Sept. 28 to the delight of the community, with students, staff, families and friends proudly marching from RCK to the freshly renovated Sal Ciampi Field at Boomer Esiason Stadium.

From the first possession, the varsity football team took control of the game against Kings Park. By halftime, East Islip had pulled out to a 49-7 lead over the Kingsmen and the thrilled crowd were ready for some entertainment, courtesy of the high school’s band and cheerleaders.

Neel Patel and Danielle Heller were crowned 2019 homecoming king and queen. The homecoming court was rounded out by freshman representatives Muhammad Abdullah and Neoma LoCimple; sophomore representatives Livia Nedd and Gerson Tamayo; junior representatives Enzo Ditta and Ryann Youngberg; senior class nominees Anthony Carroll, Mia Catalonotto, Jenna Golini, Leah Neville, Dylan Rigo and Alexander Zimmer.

After pulling the entire starting offense before the third quarter began, the undefeated Redmen went on to earn a lopsided 63-14 victory, capping a classic homecoming day.
