Practice makes perfect for Friday night lights and music

ORANGE — Local high school athletes are not the only students practicing hard at the start of school.

School has started and area high school athletes are hard at work preparing to make the coming sports seasons the best they can be. However, other groups of students are working equally as hard.

Members of local high school marching bands and color guards at West Orange-Stark, Little Cypress-Mauriceville, Bridge City, Orangefield and Vidor High Schools have been preparing since the start of August in preparation for Friday night, many days with practice twice each day in the blazing Southeast Texas heat.
