No Varsity Football Game for Eureka High School’s Homecoming Week (October 16-21)
This is a press release from Eureka City Schools:
The 2017 Eureka High School (EHS) homecoming week is October 16-21, 2017. This year’s theme is “EHS Hits the City.” Homecoming activities include float building, spirit dress up days, parade, bonfire rally, many athletic games, a dance, as well as the induction of EHS Alumni into the EHS Hall of Fame.
Due to McKinleyville High School’s varsity football program cancelling the remainder of their games, we have been left without a varsity football game for our homecoming. The Eureka High School Athletic Department attempted to fill this gap by reaching out to available teams in Southern Oregon and 3 CIF sections (North Coast, North and San Joaquin). Unfortunately, we have not been able to find another opponent for this game. We are excited, however, about the lineup of events for homecoming. The schedule of events is listed below.
Although we are disappointed our 6-0 Varsity Football team will not be playing, we are excited to celebrate the diversity of programs and teams at EHS. The Lady Logger Soccer team is currently tied for first place in league after a hard fought win over Arcata and the Boys Logger Soccer team is 4-2 in league and will play under the lights on Saturday, October 21st as the featured game. Please help us fill Albee Stadium and show your support. Homecoming is a time to bring together alumni, family, friends and community – come join the Logger Family for a week of tradition and fun!
