Saturday October 7th was a victorious day for the East High Eagles as they triumphantly fought for a win against Monroe High School for a special homecoming game. The pure passion for the sport was shared among many that day, as they pulled off their first win of the season. The Eagles showed that teamwork can you push through tough moments. The set up for the homecoming game showed our East Eagles’ spirit as a section of Culver Road was blocked off to allow the Rochester City School District marching band to perform in the streets and march onto the East High football field to give a show that no RCSD field has ever seen before. The marching band made history, giving the first on-field performance that a Rochester City School has had.
This halftime show brought team spirit on to the crowd there to support the Eagles, thus encouraging our Football team to perform ambitiously and to push through and defeat our opponent. The electrifying roar of the support from the crowd elevated the energy, the sheer thrill of seeking a first down on each drive encouraged our noble team to keep their dominance as the game progressed. The end result was a victorious win for the East High Eagles as they won their first home game.
