On a cold and rainy fall night at Rittman Stadium, the Rittman Fighting Indians played the Hillsdale Falcons on October 24 for the final contest of the 2008 football season. It was senior night and the participants of fall sports, band, and cheerleaders in their final year of high school were honored before the game began.
Pregame saw the senior band members, play John Phillip Sousa's "Stars and Stripes Forever" while the rest of the band stood in their usual "R" formation. After this, then the whole band played the national anthem, then it was game time.
With Halloween approaching, the band were all dressed in the costume of their choice as they entertained the cold, but appreciative home crowd for one last time in 2008.
Our senior majorette, Brooke, dressed as a referee, was featured by herself as the band played the Rolling Stone's classic "Paint it Black,"
Despite the cold and wet field conditions, the band gave their usual exceptional performance.
And also despite the weather, the home faithful showed their usual appreciation.
And the freshmen heavy football team ended the season at 0-10. Another character building season. I will be posting a few thoughts about the football team in the very near future.
I will also be posting photos and short descriptions about some of the performances I missed.
