On Friday, Nov. 1, during a highly anticipated event, the Cranston High School West school community hosted its 2019 Homecoming Pep Rally.
It was the first official event held on the new football field, which has been undergoing renovations since the summer months thanks to a public-private partnership between the Cranston Parks and Recreation Department and the Cranston High School West Alumni Association.
On Friday afternoon, as the skies cleared from the storms that had taken place just hours before, the new bleachers were filled with cheering, enthusiastic fans, including school staff, students, school administration, Cranston West alumni, families and many local officials, including Mayor Allan Fung and City Council President Michael Farina.
The event not only served to celebrate the opening of the new multi-sport complex at Cranston West, but also spotlighted the graduating senior students from each fall sports team.
Additionally, it served to highlight that evening’s Homecoming game against East Providence High School. The Falcons topped the Townies that night, 41-28.
