The Berkeley High Yellowjackets lost to Bishop O’Dowd 21-0 on Friday, Nov. 1, but the evening still held some special moments. The parents of senior players escorted them out to the field; the Cheer King and Queen were announced, the Pep Band was bigger than ever, and dozens of alumni attended. Mark Coplan, the spokesman for the Berkeley Unified School District, was there and took these photos.
