The scoreboard read “Guest 20 – Home 23” on Saturday morning at Tom Zunino Stadium on the Vacaville High School campus. The time on the scoreboard’s clock read “20:23.”
The Bulldogs football team was not on the field, but the VHS Class of 2023 was — 413 strong, leading a processional to their seats with “Pomp and Circumstance” as their soundtrack.
Vaca High Principal Adam Wight addressed the seniors, as well as their families and friends who filled the stands — not an empty seat in the house. Giant gold letters spelling “VHS” stood at the front of the stage.
