Chief Nation, make some noise!”

With the brassy reverberation of the marching band’s James Bond soundtrack, dazzling performances from the cheerleading and kickline squads, and the roar of the blue and gold crowd’s chanting, Pep Rally was nothing short of phenomenal.

Emceed by officers of the Class of 2014, the Pep Rally was truly a spectacle, with enthusiastic cheering and chanting echoing throughout the gym as a list MHS’ varsity athletes was read, culminating in the announcement of this year’s varsity football team, led onto the floor of the main gym to much fanfare.

Spirit Week was also a hit each and every day as proud MHS students dressed up according to different themes to show off their spirit; whether it be dressing up at hippies from the 70’s, wearing onesies and pajamas, or rocking plaid shirts and cowboy boots, virtually everyone got in the spirit to support the Chiefs.

The pie throwing was by far the most popular event of the rally; after announcing having raised over 300 dollars for the American Cancer Society in memory of Jake Brice, the chocolate pudding pies went flying! Senior Colton Annunziata threw the first pie at senior Mike Votinelli, followed by junior Alexandra Kazan throwing a fresh pie in junior Alyssa Reiter’s face.

Spirit Week and the Pep Rally were remarkable lead-ups to homecoming, where the MHS Marching Band paraded down the streets of Massapequa Park, followed by the cheerleading and kickline squads, the freshmen, sophomore and senior classes, and other clubs that joined in celebration of the Chiefs’ homecoming game.

The overwhelming displays of spirit, character and pride appeared to drive Massapequa to victory as the Chiefs went on to defeat the Syosset Braves 49-28. The crowd of students, parents, and faculty and their boisterous chanting and cheering are sure to have motivated the football team to win.
