Havre de Grace Ready For Homecoming Weekend

The Warriors host North Harford after inducting new Havre de Grace Hall of Fame members.

Havre de Grace High School will induct the newest members into its Hall of Fame Friday, kicking off a series of festivities for homecoming weekend.

The school improvement association launched the hall of fame in 2010 to generate pride in Havre de Grace heritage and inspire current students. It includes distinguished alumni such as County Executive David Craig and the late Millard E. Tydings. The third class of hall of famers is set to be inducted during the school day on Friday.

The student body will throw a pre-game pep rally at James R. Harris Stadium at 1 p.m.—weather permitting. In previous years, pep rallies were held in the gym.

The Warriors football team will take on the North Harford Hawks at 7 p.m. Homecoming for the Warriors comes days after Havre de Grace secured its first win of the season, dominating Joppatowne in a 32-0 matchup on Monday, Varsity Sports Network reported.

In last year’s homecoming game, the Warriors came out on top, 28-26, against Joppatowne.

Halftime will feature the selection of the homecoming king and queen. The 2011 winners—Tyler Coakley and Katie Bubb—will pass on their Warrior headdresses to their successors. 

The Havre de Grace homecoming dance will be 7 to 10 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 13.

Students and staff have been participating in homecoming week activities since Monday, including sporting daily themed outfits for "spirit week."
