Alumni, students, parents and friends gathered to renew their bonds to one another and to the college during Homecoming Weekend despite less than ideal weather conditions.

The high points included the decisive victories of women’s ice hockey over both Vermont and Holy Cross, and the football team win over American International, 14-0, during a driving rain- and windstorm.

Despite the forecast, hundreds of Warrior fans turned out to tailgate. Alternative indoor venues provided fans an opportunity to watch a livestream of the football game. A special halftime, included honoring the Division II National Championship men’s lacrosse team with the presentation of championship rings by President Christopher Hopey as well as performances by the dance team and cheerleaders​.​

That weather did not keep hundreds away from celebrating with friends. “The rain and wind did not damper our Warrior pride! It is great to come back each year to see how much Merrimack has grown!” said Jack Pasini.
