Northwestern State University’s 1st Year Experience, Alumni Association and Student Activities Board got the student body fired up for Saturday’s home opener against Lamar University with a truly epic pep rally. Hundreds of loyal Demon fans of every age packed the alumni tailgating area in order to see the show. They didn’t leave disappointed. The NSU Cheerleaders kicked off the action with their signature high flying moves followed by spirited performances by the NSU Pom Line and Demon Dazzlers. The Spirit of Northwestern Marching Band kept the crowd entertained throughout the evening and ended the pep rally with the alma mater and fight song.
The evening concluded with a high energy, crowd pleasing concert by the ’80’s tribute band The Molly Ringwalds. The band dressed in costumes from that era and kept the crowd on their feet and dancing with their collection of 1980’s hits.
The Natchitoches Parish Journal wishes to commend the NSU community for putting on this superb event and to extend our best wishes to the football team this season. Fork ’em Demons!
