Evanston Township High School students celebrated homecoming 2022 with a football victory on Friday night at Lazier Field followed by a dance Saturday in the Willie Mae Field House.
It was the first homecoming dance held indoors in three years.
Jaiden Francis and Meryl Plant were named homecoming royalty in a vote of ETHS seniors, and they along with their homecoming court were recognized at halftime of the Friday night football game.
The Wildkits went on to shut out Niles West 31-0, ending a four-game losing skid. With the win, Evanston’s record improved to 2-4 overall and 1-1 in league play.
On Saturday, the theme for the homecoming dance was “Glow in the Dark” and hundreds of students wore glow necklaces and lights at the event, which continued until 10 p.m. at the field house.

Of course, we also have a look at Saturday’s dance, thanks to RoundTable photographer Richard Cahan. Clearly, these students are glowing in the dark! (Yes, that was the theme this year – the first in-person Homecoming dance in three years.)
