On Friday, Sept. 28, Blazers left class at 1:10 p.m. to head to the football stadium for the annual homecoming pep-rally. The ceremony commenced with a parade of Blair's academic and sports teams. This was only the second year academic teams, such as Science Bowl and the robotics team, paraded alongside their fellow Blair athletes.

The highlight of the day was the intra school of tug-of-war, with seniors taking the final victory. Blair Cheer put on a high flying show, and Poms came out with an energetic and well choreographed dance routine.

As the pep rally was drawing to the close, Principal Renay Johnson announced the winners of the homecoming court. Billy Scott, the homecoming Duke, was very pleased when he heard his name called. "The pep-rally was an all-around good time, and when I found out that I would be homecoming duke, it was just the cherry on top. It was really a perfect pep-rally," Scott said.

After the pep-rally, many students stayed to attend the home game against Einstein.
