New Pep Band Mandate Changes Atmosphere


Story by Catherine Hutinett
The Titan Pride Pep Band sets up the band area for the Feb. 17 game against Blue Springs South. A new mandate from the LSR7 School Board made all high schools in the district have a pep band at home basketball games. This is to help prepare athletes for the pressure of playing in college, as most colleges have a band at every home game. MSHSAA rules state that the band can only play during halftime and before or after the game.
