Around Bosco: Bosco Football Defeats Servite As Students Celebrate A Homecoming For The Ages
by Aeden Alexander, Sports Editor
Last Friday, the Bosco Braves played their final football game of the regular season against Trinity League rivals, the Servite Friars, as both Bosco and St. Joseph’s High School celebrated their first homecoming since 2019.
The weekend started under Friday night lights, with Bosco taking on another nationally ranked league opponent in Servite. Both sides played a magnificent game, though the Braves edge out the Friars in the end by a final score 24-10.
The homecoming court was brought out during halftime and consisted of junior princesses Nicole Milliman and Valerie Moreno as well as senior princesses Judy Uyanne, Brianna Golini and Amy Rincon. During halftime, they would also announce the Homecoming Queen along with a spectacular firework show.
After the court was brought out, it was time to announce the Queen, with the entire stadium rumbling as Judy Uyanne was announced. She was given the coveted tiara as the fireworks were set off capping off an unforgettable night.
“It caught me by surprise. I was not expecting to win. There [were] so many beautiful girls up [there] alongside me, and I was just so happy to even be [there]. But, it was an honor to be named as Homecoming Queen and feel so blessed,” said Homecoming Queen Judy Uyanne.
The following night was the Homecoming dance, which began at 8:00 PM at Santa Anita Park in Arcadia. The venue overlooked the storied horse racing track that has been home to many big races in the past.
When kids got off of their party busses or out of their cars, they had to stand in line waiting to get in. Once they got in the first thing they would do is take an elevator to the dance floor, which had many flashing lights and a loud DJ playing music. But that was not all they had. There were various tables that consisted of an assortment of snacks and drinks.
On either side of the venue, there were outside seating areas which allowed you to have the chance to take a break from all the dancing and talk to your friends for a while before heading back in.
Or if dancing was not your thing, the venue also had an area that consisted of a bunch of different games that were very popular the entire night. These games were mega Connect Four, mega Jenga, corn hole and even foosball.
The entire night these games were occupied with students full of joy, in addition to people having a blast on the dance floor. The dance lasted all the way until 11:00 PM, and the students took full advantage of it, dancing the night away.
“It was really just a fun overall past two nights. I had an amazing night watching Bosco football get the win as well as spending my Saturday night dancing at homecoming,” said Queen Judy.
Once the dance ended, all students were dismissed to leave and were then ready to begin their next adventure of Halloween the following night.
