Heavy rains may have stopped Hewlett High School's homecoming festivities on Saturday.
But it did not stop students from standing in a heavy downpour to cheer on the Hewlett Bulldogs as they played Glen Cove.
Senior Joey Aguila rooted for his school team as he got drenched in rain. He said that he would not have missed the game for the world.
"This will be my last homecoming here and I had to come and cheer for my Bulldogs," he said. "I want to show support as much as I can."
Students sat in the bleachers with big umbrellas, plastic ponchos and blankets.
"I know that the weather is bad and a lot of people would not have showed up, but our Bulldogs need our support," sophomore Ashley Yevdosin said.
Junior Elena Warshavsky agreed that the rain couldn’t damper Hewlett's school spirit.
"No matter what the weather, the dog pound will come out and support the Bulldogs," she said.
