Prom is a staple in every high-schooler’s experience. As the school year ends, it signifies to seniors an appropriate goodbye, commemorating their time spent here. What better way for seniors be celebrated than by a dance?

Fortunately, Covid-19 has made immense progress and as the mask mandate has been lifted, safety concerns for prom are minimal. Returning to the normal traditions of Trumbull High is reassuring for seniors as their high school experience is returning to normalcy. 

This year the dance is held on June 3rd at The Amber Room in Danbury. Students arrive at 7 and stay until 11. Hillcrest is also hosting an after prom party where students can go afterwards to play games in the cafeteria. 

 “I’m really excited that we are able to have a prom this year”, said senior, Lia DeFelice, expressing her excitement for the upcoming event. “Cotillion was super fun, so I’m looking forward to another school dance”.

Reflecting on the school dance that took place last fall, she is excited to relive moments like those with her friends. Like DeFelice, Senior Adrish Das is thrilled for the dance. He describes it as “a send-off to a very good four years”. 

Trumbull students have hopes  this year’s prom might help compensate for the high school experiences lost and interrupted by Covid-19.

On Monday, May 9th, the Trumbull Eagles traveled across town to play the St. Joseph Cadets. Anytime these rivals face off, it’s always a competitive match up and this season it was definitely one to remember.

Junior Sean Francouer was starting on the mound for the Eagles with junior Scott Gell down at the plate.

Right off the bat, senior Jack Ligouri hit a solo homerun giving Trumbull an early lead of 1-0 in the top of the first inning. “I think this homerun really set the tone and sent the message that we’re here to play,” said senior captain Dylan Moran. 

Soon after in the top of the 2nd, the Eagles added a run to make the score 2-0. After St. Joes scored a run in the bottom of the 2nd inning, senior Dylan Moran responded with a solo homer to make the score 3-1 Eagles.

To break open the game up for the Eagles, senior Jack Ligouri struck for a second time with a 2-run double, extending the lead over St. Joseph to 5-1 in the 4th inning. 

In the 5th inning, senior Matt Cummings then came into the game to relieve Francouer. Cummings is up for the Ruden Report Fairfield County Bank player of the week voting poll for the week of May 9th after his recent pitching performance. 

By St. Joes scoring one a run in the 4th inning and two in the 5th, they were able to make the score 5-4 with Trumbull still leading at the start of the 7th inning.Trumbull being one out away from victory, the Cadets got a runner to second to then score on a passed ball by the Eagles. This sent the game into extra innings.

“It was really fun because we would score, they would score, then we would again, and so on. It was one of the most fun games I’ve ever been a part of,” said Moran.
