Homecoming Celebration 2022!
Thank You NS Community for an Outstanding Homecoming!  

Vikings Are Victorious vs. Clarke, 41-20!
It was a gorgeous autumn day for the North Shore Schools 2022 Homecoming Celebration on Saturday, October 8th. From toddlers to alumni and senior residents, the Homecoming Fan Fest offered something fun for everyone! Thank you to the entire North Shore community for an outstanding Homecoming 2022! In addition, congratulations to the NS Vikings Football team for triumphing over Clarke and all of the alumni and Hall of Famers who came out to celebrate with us! This year, a special alumna, Dr. Mari Saunders, joined us from the Sea Cliff High School Class of 1943! We thank her and all of the other alumni and 2022 Hall of Fame Inductees who took the field at halftime for a group photo!

To kick-off the day, numerous K-12 students, faculty, parents, and community members, enthusiastically participated in a wonderful Homecoming Carnival with fun games for all ages. Beginning at 10 am, there were also K-12 Sports Clinics where our Varsity athletes taught their younger peers how to play field hockey, soccer, football, and cheer! At noon, Superintendent Dr. Chris Zublionis led a number of students, cheerleaders, and administrators in “Sing with the Supe”! Some favorite tunes included “As It Was” by Harry Styles and “We are the Champions” by Queen!
During the Homecoming Fan Fest 2022, the large crowd moved into Stadium Field for the pre-game show including the K-2 Fun Run with over 100 hundred young runners, Pulse dance performances, and cheerleaders. Thank you to the band and drum line for playing numerous popular songs that set the upbeat tone for the afternoon. At 2 PM, the Vikings took to the field to a thunderous round of applause by all the family and friends in the stands. Congratulations go out to the Vikings Football team and their coaches for an exciting victory, 41-20! A special congrats to Pete Liotta who ran for three touchdowns allowing the Vikings to be victorious.

At 5 pm, the 2022 Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony began led by Mr. Don Lang, North Shore Athletics Director, in the North Shore High School gymnasium. Congratulations to the 2022 Hall of Fame Inductees including Jennie Berglin, Elizabeth Caldwell, Alexandra Cantwell, Samantha Capobianco, Patrick Chaputian, Jessica Donohue, Amanda Johansen, Cody Buchanan Johnson, Kathleen Anne Lennon, Bobby Magnuson, Kaela McGilloway, Samantha Nadel, Brianna Nerud, Caroline Robertson, Ashleigh Sheerin, Erin Sheerin, and Diana Vizza.
