In the Pink and Then into the Black

Grigg Memorial Field's markings were outlined in pink Saturday for the Trojan's football game against Upper Perkiomen High School, which was also its Breast Cancer Awareness Day and the game honoring seniors and parents.

The Pottstown High School Trojans had a busy day on Saturday.

First, the football Trojans took to Grigg Memorial Field and scored yet another victory in their remarkable season, defeating the Upper Perkiomen High School Indians by a score of 21-13.

It was also the game at which they observed Breast Cancer Awareness Month, so everything was pink.

But wait, there's still more!

Saturday was also senior recognition and parent recognition day.

All that said and done, the football team may have put their feet up for the day, but no such luck for that Trojan Marching Band.

They climbed onto a bus and headed over to Lancaster County for the Manheim Township High School Marching Band Showcase.

There, they performed, for the second time that day, their show, "Fade to Black," to the delight of the enthusiastic crowd which braved the falling mercury and packed the stands at the Blue Streaks' stadium.

Then there was an added treat.

Seniors and section leaders, were invited to join the Kutztwn University Marching Band -- which had just performed five numbers -- to perform two songs, "Holiday" and "Hot, Hot, Hot."

First, here is some video of the Trojans taking the field in Manheim:

So here is quick video of highlights of the performance with KU.

As always, full videos of all Pottstown and Kutztown performances can be found below, toward the end of the Storify of Tweets from the day, which, conveniently enough, start right now!
