Community members of all ages came out to support the Bayport-Blue Point Phantoms as the school community celebrated homecoming 2015 this October.

The festivities commenced on Oct. 9 with the high school pep rally and continued the next morning with the traditional Hall of Fame induction ceremony.

During the ceremony, Timothy Mullins, director of physical education, health and athletics, welcomed community guests, including members of the Board of Education and school administrators, as well as family and friends of the inductees who were present to show their support. This year’s class of inductees included Billy Purdy (Class of 2004), Bill Shuren (Class of 1996), Coach Bill Hutchinson, Kerri Brown Bullock (Class of 1999) and Chris Cavanaugh (honorary).

The traditional homecoming parade, which began at Blue Point Elementary and ended at the entrance to the high school football stadium, was widely attended by community members of all ages. The event featured student-musicians from the district’s elementary and secondary schools, along with floats created by the high school grade levels and candidates for homecoming queen. At halftime, Kerrigan Miller was crowded this year’s queen and the senior class was named the winner of the float contest with their entry based on the video game “Mario Brothers.” Dan Kruse was crowned this year’s king during the homecoming pep rally.

The BBP Phantoms maintained a strong lead throughout the homecoming varsity football game against Greenport/Southold/Mattituck, which ended in a 40-0 victory for BBP.
