On Friday, September 13, Ames High will host Iowa City High in the seventh game of the Little Cy-Hawk rivalry (Ames is 4-2) with a traveling trophy sponsored by HY-Vee on the line. The game will kick off at 7:00 p.m. and will precede the biggest collegiate game in the state, the Cy-Hawk game with Iowa State University hosting the University of Iowa. The game is always a huge community event so here is what you need to know.
Admittance to the game is $6 at the gate or with a season pass. We are also asking that visitors bring a non-perishable food item that will be donated to Food at First in Ames. Home Depot buckets will be present at the stadium entrance with Ames High Dance Marathon members outside to help collect.
At the end of halftime, a fireworks display show will take place just East of the Ames High Stadium.
Iowa State University Band
The Iowa State University marching band will accompany the Ames High marching band on the field at the beginning of the game and at half time. It will certainly be an amazing sight with over 500 players and instruments on the field.
Pass the Bucket for Dance Marathon
Between the third and fourth quarters, the Home Depot buckets will be passed around the crowd on both sides by our students. Funds collected from this bucket challenge will help the University of Iowa Children’s Hospital in Iowa City.
Mediacom is making this their game of the week and will be broadcasting the game on a tape-delayed basis. It can be viewed on Mediacom channel 22 later throughout the week.
