Celebrating a Sunny Homecoming and Fall Family Day
On Saturday, October 29, more than 700 Roxbury Latin fans—students, alumni, faculty, families, and friends—gathered on campus for this season’s Homecoming and Fall Family Day.
The day brought athletic competitions across campus, including varsity matches in cross country, soccer, and football. Before kick-off of the football game, Headmaster Brennan—speaking from the 50-yard line of O’Keeffe Field—thanked everyone for being there to celebrate, and introduced the day’s special guests: alumni who were members of the championship football teams of 1987 (7-0, ISL Champions); 1997 (7-0, ISL Champions); and 2002 (9-0, ISL and NE Champions), along with their beloved coach of more than two decades, Mr. Frank Guerra. A special reception was held in their honor after the football game. Earlier that morning, RL soccer alumni took on Belmont Hill’s alumni in the annual Terry Iandiorio ’89 Memorial Game. (Roxbury Latin secured the win for this year’s bragging rights, 5-1.)
Following the ceremony, and just prior to the game, the Latonics performed the National Anthem from the 50-yard line. At halftime, on the football field, Sixies and Fifthies battled it out in the annual tug-of-war. (Class V emerged victorious, continuing a years-long championship.)
