Halftime Show Gets Times-Picayune’s Attention


(PONCHATOULA, LA.) — The football game on Halloween night at Ponchatoula High field, known as “The Swamp,” was a trick for St. Paul’s Wolves football fans, partly due to SPS’ score deficit of 52-16 and partly due to the cold weather. The treat, however, was the Marching Wolves’ halftime show, dressed up in Halloween garb and all.

The Super Six, a group of six dancers from the band, performed a routine that brought the Ponchatoula Green Wave faithful to rousing applause, high praise for an opposing team’s band from fans of a team fighting for their first district championship in years.

The Super Six put on such a grooving routine of twists, turns, jumps, and solos to the tune of ‘NSync’s “Bye Bye Bye,” that the Times-Picayune took video of the show and posted an article about it. Ponchatoula’s halftime show garnered coverage, as well.

“I’m glad we got featured,” Band Director Andrew Moran said. “It’s good press for the Marching Wolves and the school.”

The Marching Wolves have also been nominated by the Picayune for the New Orleans area’s best band. Details have not yet been released about this year’s contest, but voting will begin soon.

The Super Six will give Fontainebleau High a taste of the St. Paul’s funk when the Wolves take on the Bulldogs on Friday, November 7th.
