Beautiful young lady, but I think a more conservative picture could have been used.

You have GOT to be kidding. Do you know how hard they work and how hot it gets during practice? This IS conservative compared to some of what I've seen in 5 years as a marching band and drum corps mom. And if this was one of the males up there in shorts and nothing else, that comment would never have been made. These girls (and boys) deserve better than being trashed for their attire. Most of us couldn't survive one day of their practice.

You said it ex! This girl was out there for more than 5 hours yesterday. And you are right.... had this been a male without a shirt or even a sleeveless shirt this would have never been said!

HATS OFF to the Marching Knights! You are an asset to our community!

I personally don't see anything wrong with this girl's attire. I've seen girls wearing less walking down the street!
