NEW WILMINGTON, Pa.- Westminster could not have asked for a more perfect day for homecoming. September sunshine on a Saturday afternoon brought out hundreds of alumni and their families to campus. They joined students, faculty and staff for a festive day on a campus punctuated with blue and white.
The celebration began on Saturday morning with the parade on Market Street. The marching bands and colorful floats made by the fraternities and sororities started the day of right. This years theme was “Get Animated” featured the creative interpretations for Greek and non-Greek organizations. Student Affair organizers revealed Zeta Tau Alpha as the float winner with a sparkling castle filled with Disney princesses.
“We all worked really hard putting this float together,” sophomore Stephanie Bucci said. “It was stressful but we are so happy with the outcome.”
Later in the day in an alumni-filled Bury Stadium, the Titans hosted PAC rival Grove City in the homecoming football game.
Tailgating tents surrounded the stadium where old friends mingled and new acquaintances were made. Titan radio was even streaming live from the game and interviewing fans.
Durning halftime, last year’s homecoming king and queen passed their crowns to Westminster’s new royalty. Phi Kappa Tau’s Greg Clark was announced king and Sigma Kappa’s Sarah Carlson as queen.
The Westminster football team had a heart-breaking loss to the Wolverines. With 18 seconds left in the game Grove City scored ending the quarter 23-21.
