Saucon Homecoming

Saucon senior Brennen Van Helmondt was crowned Homecoming King during Thursday night’s Homecoming pep rally at Montford E. Illick Stadium in Hellertown. The school’s 2021 Homecoming Queen will be crowned at Friday night’s football game against rival Southern Lehigh. Van Helmondt was escorted on the field by his parents, Gael & Herb Van Helmondt.

There’s even more to celebrate at Saucon Valley Homecoming this year, as the community emerges from the COVID pandemic and rediscovers the simple joys of coming together in the name of school spirit.

The annual Saucon Valley Homecoming community pep rally and bonfire were held at Montford E. Illick Stadium on the school district campus Thursday night, and hundreds of fans turned out to revisit their alma mater and support the Panthers, who will face off against the Southern Lehigh Spartans Friday night at 7 p.m.

A highlight of the evening was the crowning of this year’s Homecoming King, Brennen Van Helmondt, who was chosen from among six boys on the 2021 Homecoming Court.

Senior cheerleaders, band members, football players and other fall athletes were also recognized.
