It’s time again for fall weather, football and high school Homecoming celebrations.
Long County High School will celebrate Homecoming Oct. 22-26. The theme selected for this year is “The Blue Tide Way.”
The highlight of the week will be Friday night’s game against the Tattnall County Warriors at 7:30 p.m. at Veterans Stadium.
Prior to the game, all senior football players, cheerleaders, and band members will be recognized during our Senior Night ceremony.
Then, at half-time, members of the Homecoming Court will be recognized, and the 2018 Long County High School Homecoming Queen will be crowned.
Vying for the queen’s crown, the senior members of the court include Stephani Caballero, Sophie Cooper, Breneé Crawford, Joshlynn Crews, Bailey Harrison, Mykala Jackson, and Jennifer Mejia.
In addition to the queen, one representative of each grade level will be crowned Homecoming Princess.

The freshman representatives are Olivia Grussing, Allison Ng, and Makayla Raimer.
