The stands were filled
with fans at the annual Rye-Harrison football game, held on October 18, where
the Garnets took an 8-2 victory over the Huskies! This year’s game was held at Harrison High School, but even without
the home field advantage, the Garnets football players rallied for a win. The Pep
Band played, cheerleaders set the enthusiastic mood during halftime, and
spectators rooted for their respective teams throughout all four quarters.
The score remained 0-0 for the first half. Director of Physical Education, Health and Athletics Mr. Robert Castagna predicted, “The game is going to be very close. It’s what we expect when these teams get together…we are all geared up for the game!” Mr. Castagna was grateful for all the fan support.
“This is an 83-year-old tradition,” explained Superintendent, Dr. Frank Alvarez and Rye High School Principal, Patricia Taylor. “It’s like a homecoming, with a large number of returning alumni.” This game, like those in the past, was a great community event with Rye residents coming together and showing their Garnets pride!
