Homecoming weekend as a Marching Captain was completely awesome. The festivities kicked off with Midnight Madness, a fun and exciting event where everyone gathers in the gym and enjoys food, basketball, performances and other various activities to get excited for homecoming. The band kicks off the performances. We walk in with our uniform band T-shirts, and take center floor. We played different songs, from “Can’t Hold Us” to “Down and Dirty,” both of which were major hits with the crowd. Once the performance was over, the was a loud, exciting roar from the crowd and the band.
The Saturday of homecoming began with morning practice to reinforce the drill-sets we have learned and a rehearsal of the halftime show that evening. Once practice is done we have a break, and then the excitement begins. The pregame festivities began with the Marching Captains meeting up with the golf cart parade, which is full of floats made from golf carts. People were lined up to see the band and the parade go through. We then marched into the tailgate, which was packed with excited alumni, CNU parents and family, and spectators. After the tailgate performance, it was time for the Marching Captains to take the field for the pregame performance.
The most exciting part (in my opinion!) of the homecoming game was the halftime show. Check out our performance!
The homecoming performance completed our phenomenal Marching Captains season. On top of all the homecoming weekend festivities, the football team won the homecoming game against Averett University. Homecoming was an exciting time for all of CNU. I can honestly say that I will never forget my first homecoming as freshmen and a first-year Marching Captain.
