Like many high schools, Lane Tech’s homecoming is held in the fall during “harvest” time. Traditionally a time when alumni return to their schools to watch the homecoming game or catch up with friends, Lane Tech dubbed their 1984 homecoming the “harvest of champions”. This name was a nod to the hundreds of athletic championships that Lane Tech had won throughout the decades and perhaps also a hope that they would be champions again in 1984.
Lane Technical College Prep High School located in Chicago, Illinois, was founded in 1908. Lane Tech is one of nine selective enrollment schools, requiring all applicants to pass entrance exams before attending the school. The campus has an enrollment of just over 4,000 students, grades 7-12. Lane Tech's colors are green and gold, and their mascot is the Indians (which has been much debated in recent years, but still remains unchanged).
