WARREN, NJ - The varsity cheer team reunited in time to cheer at the homecoming football game on Friday but Watchung Hills fell to Phillipsburg, 35-0.
The game was a white out against bullying.
State Senate Minority Leader Tom Kean and Somerset County Sheriff Chief and K9 Unit Commander (Ret) Tim Pino addressed the crowd prior to the game.
At the half, the homecoming king and queen were announced and they are: Matt Canary and Caitlyn Park.
After the homecoming court was announced, the cheer team performed, with stunts.
Superintendent Elizabeth Jewett said in a Thursday, Oct. 5, email that "we have come to a shared understanding with both the seniors and their parents on how to move forward and all of the seniors who had resigned have rejoined the team and will be performing during our Homecoming game tomorrow evening."
