MADISON — The University of Wisconsin-Madison’s marching band on Saturday, Nov. 24 celebrated the end of an era. Band director Mike Leckrone led the marching band for a final time during the Badgers game at Camp Randal.
Kickoff for the matchup vs. the Minnesota Golden Gophers was set for 2:30 p.m.
Leckrone, 82, served as the marching band director since 1969.
UW-Madison shared a photo of Leckrone on Twitter, with a touching caption that read: “Today we celebrate
#Badgers legend Mike Leckrone, directing the @badgerband in his final game at Camp Randall after 50 years. For all this, we say,’Thanks, Mike!’”
Leckrone made the announcement back in August.
