The Holy Trinity Diocesan High School homecoming was an occasion for celebration and school spirit but also one of remembrance. School athletic officials retired jersey No. 5, the number worn by the late John "Jay" Kutner, the school's football quarterback in 1974 who was fatally injured on the field. A moment of silence was also held for Giovanni Cipriano, who was a freshman at the school and died this month.
