New Hyde Park Memorial High School held its Annual Homecoming Day and the day was picture-perfect beautiful, towards the end of the festivities it became cooler, but nonetheless beautiful.
The parade started on Hillside Boulevard, came down New Hyde Park Road and then turned on Lincoln Boulevard and into the school grounds where the floats were parked in the parking lot and the various other participants took their places.
All in all the floats were marvelous and showed that they entailed hours and hours of production and the rest of the homecoming festivities were wonderful including the step team, the Romanettes and each and every routine was the result of hours of long , hard practice. The homecoming was a huge success and it was especially fun to win the homecoming game.

The New Hyde Park Athletic Association Girls 14U Team Intensity swept a doubleheader against the Brooklyn Cyclones in the highly competitive HBQBV Travel Softball League. The ladies had a tough task - facing a flame throwing windmiller who has been routinely clocked in the upper 50 mph range yet the NHP girls played their way to a gut wrenching 4-3 victory.
Jillian Sakowich (5 hits) was the offensive star of the day excelling from the left side of the plate. Sakowich, (who also had 5 stolen bases and scored 2 runs) has been taking a cerebral approach to the game, carefully analyzing the defense before deciding to bunt, hit, or slap her way on base.
