Homecoming 2012

  • October 20, 2012

A rare sprinkle during the morning street fair dampened hoodies but not the Leo Spirit. A few young alums played paddleball on C Street, others used their paddle for shelter. University president Devorah Lieberman danced her way down Second Street, her husband, Roger Auerbach having none of it in the wet weather. There was face-painting, balloon apparel, tunes from LeoFM and lots of Little Leos sporting their future colors.

By the time warmups started for the 1 p.m. football game against Pomona College, the La Verne faithful were out in full force, sporting their orange and green, ready to cheer for a victory. Running back Matthew Biggers carried the ball and much of the load for La Verne in the early going. Late in the first quarter, Robert Fernandez pulled in a swing pass from quarterback Travis Carter and scored to give La Verne a 10-0 lead. The Leopards went on to defeat the Sagehens.
