The downtown district was teeming with school spirit on Friday afternoon, Oct. 1, as San Clemente High students held their Homecoming Parade, attracting a large energetic crowd eager to celebrate in the annual tradition once again.

Building excitement ahead of the Triton football team’s big matchup against Loyola that evening, student-athletes, cheer squads and clubs marched down Avenida Del Mar, leading class floats and the Homecoming court.

The parade marked the first Homecoming procession since 2019. The school was unable to host the yearly event in 2020 because of the pandemic. While the Triton football team did a get a shortened season this past spring, COVID-19 restrictions prevented the parade and dance.

San Clemente High on Friday night went on to defeat Loyola, 24-21.
