Loveland High School Pep Band

Loveland -

There's a lot of unsung heroes throughout the season in Loveland's basketball program, and one that doesn't get the recognition that they deserve is the Loveland Tigers Pep Band. Like our athletes, these students put in numerous hours in order to perfect their craft; but unlike the basketball players. these students do not get to compete every single week. Last week, the Loveland pep Band not only showed up for the boys' game on Tuesday night, but turned around and showed up big time for the girls' game on Wednesday. It was their energy throughout the game that helped the Lady Tigers get a big win against Little Miami! Thank you Pep Band!

Noah has been a great leader this season in multiple different ways. He always has a great attitude, amazing work ethic, and is competing at a very high level. After a very successful weekend in Knoxville where he made two Olympic Trial cuts, he will look to make some noise at the Southwest Classic and hopes to lead the boys’ team to its first ECC Championship in sixteen years!
