Despite the damp weather conditions, the North Babylon came out in full force to celebrate the school’s homecoming on Oct. 1.
Even though the weather meant the parade and homecoming floats couldn’t serve as the kickoff for the day’s festivities, the weather cleared in time for the community to come show their support as the North Babylon Bulldogs took on Smithtown High School West Bulls.
The game proved to be one for the record books as North Babylon put forth a big win against Smithtown West 75-49. Senior running back Nathaniel Griffith made history as he set the North Babylon High School, Suffolk County and Long Island single game rushing yards record with 38 carries, 489 yards and seven touchdowns.
The North Babylon Bulldogs football team also broke the previous school scoring record with their win by putting up 75 points. Varsity football coach Mango recorded this 200th win with the program.
During the halftime show, the North Babylon cheerleaders kept the energy high for the crowds. The kickline and marching band also took to the field to perform their respective routines.
