Around 350 Conroe High School band students shouted out a big “thank you” Wednesday afternoon as they posed for a photo with Donnie Buckalew and their new band trailer. Right after the drum beat and trumpets blared from a practice run of “Eye of the Tiger,” Buckalew Chevrolet turned the corner into the parking lot of the Ralph Rowe Music Center hauling the 24-foot trailer to students’ surprise. “It took me a couple of seconds to see what exactly it said; but once I realized it said the Legendary Conroe Tiger band, I was like ‘wow, that’s us,” said center podium drum major and senior Merci Paulhill, 17, still excited about the gift.
Conroe and College Park are the only teams still searching for their first District 12-6A wins of the season. On Friday at Conroe’s Moorhead Stadium, one team will get the job done. The Tigers (0-5, 0-2) host the Cavaliers (1-5, 0-3) at 7:30 p.m. in a game that could give momentum for the final stretch of the season to its winner.

Entering the night, a full game ahead of the Lady Bears in the District 12-6A standings and having already beat them back on Sept. 29, the Tigerettes took a 25-22, 25-19, 20-25, 19-25, 15-13 win to secure fourth place and a trip to the playoffs. “I’m at a loss for words,” Brown said afterwards as her team posed for a photo with the fans who came out to support them.
