You can hear Grace Allgaier and Casey Jo Baker blowing their whistle at 7 o’clock in the morning every school day preparing for their marching season.
September 15th was the preview parade for New Haven High School. There was a lot of preparation going on for the New Haven High School and Middle School marchers. Every morning at 7 o’clock, you could hear them marching and strengthening their abilities.
When asked if there are any nerves this season, sophomore Johnna Bloch said, “I am somewhat nervous because being a Shamrockette is different, and there are a lot of people watching you.”
Many of the Marching Shamrocks said they are excited for the Mizzou homecoming and all of the marching band competitions.
Mrs. Koch, the director of the Marching Shamrocks, said, “The Marching Shamrocks are off to a very strong start and continue to improve every day. This season will be very strong!”
In marching band season, or any other sports season, you have that one thing you look forward to.
When Sarah McKernan, senior, was asked what she is looking forward to this season she said, “The parades-- it's so fun to march through the streets with everybody.”
A freshman, Ellie Westermeyer, responded with, “I am looking forward to being with people I didn’t know.”
Mrs. Koch addressed whether or not she had any concerns for the season: “I have no doubt that our students will perform to the best of their ability and represent us well all season.”
Mrs. Koch is looking forward to the season and so is the rest of the Marching Shamrocks!
