Under the Lights: Byram Hills High School Homecoming Games to Feature Four Night Games

Byram Hills High School is pleased to announce that this year’s homecoming celebration will feature four varsity night games, the first time in school history the Bobcats will play at home under the lights.

“We hope the entire community can come out to cheer on all of our athletic teams during homecoming week,” Byram Hills Principal Christopher Walsh said. “We think it’s a great way to build community spirit and Bobcat pride.”

The varsity homecoming games begin with field hockey on Sept. 26, followed by girls soccer on Sept. 27, football on Sept. 28 and boys soccer on Sept. 29. All games are at Byram Hills High School at 7 p.m.

The Byram Hills School District is renting lights to illuminate the games and add to this year's homecoming festivities. “Thank you to the Board of Education and Superintendent Jen Lamia for supporting us with this event,” Mr. Walsh said.

This year marks 50 years since the first class graduated from Byram Hills High School. Alumni from the class of 1968 will return to Byram Hills to speak to the ninth graders on Sept. 28 and will tour the high school the following day ahead of their 50th reunion that night.

“As the first graduating class of Byram Hills High School, they are responsible for many of the great traditions and symbols that we still have today,” Mr. Walsh said. “Their class came up with the Bobcat as a mascot and they also chose our school colors. They still speak about this school with such pride and I hope that 50 years from now, our current students feel the same way.”
