Before the Dukes’ big win Friday over Keystone, the team was led down Dickson Street to Wellington’s stadium by a parade of floats, pristine convertibles carrying homecoming court members, and members of the Wellington police force. “Beat Keystone” was heard from many students passing by and was also emblazoned on many of their shirts and two of the floats.
