The West Chicago football cheerleaders, dance team, and poms performed during the game and at halftime. West Chicago’s marching band performed four songs including the school song, “We’re West Chicago”. Musical solos on trumpet were performed by George Kotke and Dominik Mohai. The halftime show is called Piano Man: The Music of Billy Joel. The dance team performed while the band played Uptown Girl.

After the varsity win, the student squad stormed the field and celebrated with the team. Unfortunately, the Freshman/Sophomore team lost 40-8.

On a side note, the Upstate 8 conference suffered a loss this week as two female students from South Elgin High School sadly were killed in an automobile accident, a moment of silence was observed before the singing of the national anthem at the onset of the game.
