Here they are — your 2017-18 Marching Statesmen seniors!
With the Statesmen back in the playoffs after missing out last year, the postseason atmosphere at Moss Field was electric. The Statesmen won the game in decisive fashion despite missing their starting QB, and on the musical side, band parents and directors were happy to have another marching band performance to make up for the canceled gamer earlier in the season.
On Senior Night, a nail-biting finish that didn’t go the way of the Statesmen didn’t diminish what was overall a captivating game on a gorgeous October evening. The marching band shows were top-notch as usual, and business was brisk at the concession stand. Many, many thanks to our graduating seniors for four years of hard work, unforgettable performances, and lasting memories!
On September 29, the WGHS band program continued the spirited tradition of Hixson night, when 8th graders join the high school marching band on field for a special halftime performance. As usual, despite holding no joint practices, the combined unit sounded fantastic. The high school band’s pregame show featured the debut performance of Queen’s smash hit, “Bohemian Rhapsody, and all in attendance can attest that it was worth the wait. While the Statesmen fell to the Lancers in the game’s final moments, all four quarters were thrilling, the weather was perfect, and the mini-cheerleaders were a delight!
