Santa Fe High School Homecoming 2018
by John David Suayan
Saturday, October 06, 2018

Santa Fe High School on Friday celebrated the time-honored fall tradition of Homecoming.

Joe Raitano Field at Indian Stadium hosted a virtually standing room only crowd for what turned out to be the biggest victory of the year so far for the varsity football team.

Santa Fe soundly defeated the visiting Ganders of Baytown Lee High School, 49-31, thanks to an offense that did not have trouble finding its way to the end zone all night and a defense that overcame early miscues to limit the guests to a paltry seven points in the second half.

For the school on the western edge of Galveston County, every event or activity during the current academic year bears the distinction as “the first since May 18,” the day earlier this year when ten innocent lives were lost in an art classroom.

Homecoming 2018 was no different. The student body of more than 1,000 is still reeling from the that dark spring morning so for it to watch its beloved squad win at home for the first time this season was just what the doctor ordered.

Seniors Marcus Banda and Sara Wesley were crowned as this year's Homecoming King and Queen, respectively during halftime.

The SFHS Class of 1978 was recognized at the game for its 40th reunion with several members in attendance. Representatives from State Farm distributed free foam fingers and footballs to hundreds of green and gold-clad fans.

In the week leading up to the game, the school held events such as a parade, a carnival, and a pep rally.

With a 1-1 district record, the Indians hit the road for the second time in two weeks for a game against Vidor on October 12.
