Assuring learning excellence and readiness for a changing world



77 Lancers Marching Band

In accordance with directives from the State of Minnesota, we regretfully must cancel our 2020 season. Though it is sad, we can be proud that we are upholding the long-standing Lancer traditions of integrity, unity, and consideration for those we love. The Greater Mankato Area has been our incredibly supportive home for these last 41 years, and we owe it to our families, friends, and neighbors to think communally in these unprecedented times.
