Malibu Sharks Look to Continue Winning Streak Under Night Lights

For the first time in years, the Malibu High School football team will celebrate its homecoming game under a lighted athletic field.

Friday night lights will return to Malibu High School for the first time in years with a homecoming football game in which the Sharks are looking to defend a five-game winning streak.

Festivities for homecoming, which will also celebrate the school's 20th anniversary, will begin at 4 p.m. Friday, Oct. 26 with tailgating and float decoration, according to organizers.

The 70-foot lights were installed earlier this week.

An opening ceremony will start at 6 p.m. Then the Sharks football will take on the Fillmore Flashes with kick-off slated to begin at 6:30 p.m. The team is on a five-game winning streak.

A homecoming dance, which is for students only, will follow the game and last through 11 p.m.

Under a temporary restraining order stemming from a lawsuit seeking to block the lights, the 70-foot lights can be installed and turned on for football games, but not any other sports at this time.

The lights will be allowed for games until Nov. 8, when Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge James Chalfant will hold the first hearing in the case.
