According to Sippican Weekly: Big game, new mascot waiting at ORR Homecoming
MATTAPOISETT — Old Rochester Regional High School’s football team will face off against Seekonk at the school’s homecoming game, but there’s a lot of school spirit beforehand.
The high school’s annual pep rally will see each class face off by performing a homecoming skit on Friday, Oct. 19. The most creative skit will win; past classes have performed “The Chronicles of Narnia,” “Star Wars,” “Napoleon Dynamite,” “Elf” and “Monsters, Inc.”
The homecoming football game will begin at 7 p.m. on the same day. The Bulldogs have won their last three homecoming games, defeating Apponequet in 2016, this year’s foe Seekonk in 2015, and Wareham in 2014.
During half-time, high school principal Mike Devoll has said that ORR’s new official mascot will be revealed; earlier in the year, an online questionnaire was offered to tri-town residents, looking for their input in what they wanted in a mascot. “We had so many different bulldog mascots,” Devoll said at the time. “For unity’s sake, it would be nice to have just one mascot.”
With the help of a New Bedford graphic design company, the new bulldog mascot is just waiting to be revealed on Friday night. Homecoming weekend will be capped by the school’s homecoming dance, which will run on Saturday, Oct. 20, from 7-10 p.m. at the high school.
