Spring is a time when the band heaves a heavy sigh, sadly waving our beloved football games and hilarious halftime shows goodbye for 9 months.
However, that doesn’t stop us from having a good time and spreading our spirit! We attend a wide variety of sports in the spring from basketball…
This past spring was especially exciting, as the women’s basketball team had a PERFECT SEASON, going on an unprecedented 30 game winning streak to earn the No. 9 seed in the Spokane bracket of the NCAA tournament. So, happily and full of spirit, the band boarded a bus to Maryland to cheer them on, accompanied by the cheerleaders and an iPod full of Space Jam remixes.
President Obama was in attendance and proudly cheered on the Tigers in round 1. With that game, we upped our winning streak to 31 straight games by defeating of Green Bay. This was the first time that Princeton had won a game in the tournament, and only the second time that an Ivy League school had done so. Princeton was then eliminated in the following round.
All in all, it was a fantastic spring for the band!
