Huskies Pep Band to be OFFICIAL WCHA Final Five Band... AGAIN!

That's correct. The Michigan Tech Huskies Pep Band will be BACK for a second year at the Red Baron 2007 WCHA Final Five at the Xcel Center.

Last year, it was looking like many of the teams that were probably going to make the tournament weren't going to have bands there. The WCHA knew they had to do something about it... Preventing any sort of situation where two teams without bands would be meeting. What kind of college hockey atmosphere would that be? The WCHA then decided to call upon NCAA's finest pep band to entertain the crowd. The Huskies Pep Band would be deemed the "Official Band of the 2006 WCHA Final Five." Their purpose there was not to be the band of any team who didn't bring a band, but to be there to entertain, play for, and harrass all equally.

While in St. Paul, the Huskies Pep Band also weaseled their way into the annual St. Patrick's Day Parade, where they gained a plethora of fans. They were quite the hit and even made it on the local news. Look for them in the parade once again this year.

Last year's appearance at the Final Five went over very well for the HPB. Fans of all schools enjoyed the atmosphere they brought, along with their witty antics (although, Jordan Parise's mom may not have appreciated it as much...). Recently, the WCHA has come back the Huskies Pep Band, asking them once again to return to St. Paul to be the official band of the Final Five. Though the Pep Band has every intention of returning to St. Paul this year, they might have to decline being the Official Band of the WCHA Final Five... and instead, just be the Official Band of the Michigan Tech Husky Hockey Team, who reportedly have decided that they would like to make an appearance or two at the X this year.
