Honoring the accomplishments of the senior-athletes of Walter G. O’Connell Copiague High School, coaches and administrators lined up for a car parade in the school’s parking lot on the afternoon of June 8. Since the senior spring athletes didn’t have the opportunity to compete in their final spring season, Copiague athletic director William Bennett and the coaches organized the parade to give the athletes a final send-off. As the coaches and administrators cheered them on with signs held high, the students paraded through the school with their cars decorated in blue and white to show off their Eagle pride.
