Saturday, everyone awoke to a brisk, clear fall morning and began to prepare for the day's game and parade. Participants in the annual parade included the I.H.S. marching band, the class floats, the cheerleaders, and many excited fans. As the parade approached the Diss Memorial Complex, everyone felt the tradition that is a special part of Ilion homecoming. The football team gave the fans a super game, as the Bombers went on to beat the Knights 14 to 6.
During halftime of the game, the winners of the float contest were announced. The sophomores again took first place, with the seniors a close second and the juniors third. As twilight arrived that night, the homecoming dance began. As always, it was a big success.
On Sunday, the classes participated in the last events of Homecoming '89, the class games. The Powder Puff football playoffs were won by the juniors. The next event, the tugo-war was won by the freshmen. Although everyone was tired from the outdoor events, they all had enough energy to participate in the last of the class games, volleyball. This event was dominated by the seniors, as they went on to win the overall event. Everyone agreed that Homecoming '89 was a huge success. All the students, but especially the seniors, will remember the friendship, fun, and excitement of I.H.S. Homecoming 1989.
