Led this season by co-captains Nate Hefner '19, Kyle Aanstoots '19, and Ray Fluet '20, Big Blue has its sights set on a conference win.
Over 850 Pingry students, parents, faculty, staff, alumni, family, and friends assembled on Saturday under sparkling fall skies for a festive Homecoming celebration to kick off the 2018-19 school year. Hosted by the Office of Institutional Advancement, the annual all-school event featured a mouth-watering BBQ lunch under the tent, face-painting for kids, a visit by none other than the Big Blue Bear, and, of course, plenty of sports action.
Soggy conditions from previous days' rain were no match for Big Blue sprit! Despite the fact that Pingry's grass fields were unplayable, the four scheduled varsity field games (boys' soccer and football and girls' soccer and field hockey) went off without a hitch, thanks to some quick rescheduling from the Athletics Department, which allowed all match-ups to occur on the dryer, more accommodating turf of Parsons and Babbitt Fields. At the end of the day, as a fitting conclusion to a festive day on campus, Big Blue emerged victorious in five of its six home games.
Thanks to all who came and made Homecoming 2018 such a lively community event—enjoy the slideshow! And for more photos from the day, visit pingry.org/photos.
