It’s not often that Red Bank Regional students get a sanctioned opportunity to hang out on weekend nights on school grounds screaming and pumping their fists wildly.
This weekend is one of those times. RBR sports kick off with the Maroon and White Under The Lights Weekend as the school’s football and soccer teams invite their potential victims over for games in front of hundreds of crazed fans.
RBR athletic director Louis ‘Del’ Dal Pra says the reason for the nocturnal event, which occurs just once a season, is quite simple.
“What we’re doing is trying to get some school spirit create a ‘Friday night lights’ atmosphere,” Dal Pra said.
