In My Own Words
In this installment of In My Own Words,Kira Fritz recalls her experience at the final marching band performance of 2019.

Today, I want to tell you about our last marching band performance of the 2019 Marching band. That day was filled will so many emotions but, let's start at the beginning.


It all started when we had all reported in the band room around 11 am to get our uniforms on and to be able to do a run-through before getting on the buses to McCaskey for the LMBC coalition, which is where our last performance took place.


When we got there, we had got off the buses and went straight to the field to practice the song for the mass band performance that every marching band that had come to participate in the coalition gets to perform a song all together. 
We were all practicing there for about an hour and a half. Then we got to take our instruments back in their cases and go eat Issac's sandwiches that the coalition had provided all of the band members, and lis…

On Friday, the Lampeter-Strasburg football team beat Berks Catholic, 35-21. The victory made the Pioneers District 3 Class AAAA champions!


Here's a couple of stats surrounding the win. First, this is the program's second district title ever. The last one came more than ten years ago in 2007. In addition, the Pioneers are the second team EVER to win a district crown after entering the bracket as the number eight seed. Finally, all three of those games were on the away.

This Friday L-S travels to Hollidaysburg to challenge Thomas Jefferson in the semi-finals.

Go, Pioneers!

Band Recognition Night: Pocket Trumpet Player's Perspective

Image
On Tuesday, November 19 Band Recognition Night was held. It was a super fun and emotional night that I will remember for a long time.


There were food and drinks, heartfelt speeches, funny photos, and amazing videos. We played a trivia Kahoot about the band staff and our show, and out of 157 players, I won!!

After Mr. Royer had always told us how it's always about the group and not the individual, each person was recognized for however many years they have participated in marching band, from first-year freshman, to a first-year senior!

One of my favorite moments of the night was a video put together by Mrs. Sanderson. It had interviews from seniors about what being part of the band means to them, and it followed the band at the E-Town football game.

Recognition Night made me miss being in Band already. It felt like I was saying goodbye to the seniors and the rest of the band, even if I'd be seeing them at school today.
