VANDALIA — A chilly and breezy Friday night gave way to an incredibly energetic opener to Butler’s fall sports’ seasons.

Meet The Aviators and Midnight Hits was kicked off by performances of the Butler Fight song, and The National Anthem by Butler’s Marching Band, Kick line and Color guard.

Throughout the evening, audiences watched a practice from peewee football, a scrimmage by girls and boys soccer. Eventually, each member of the fall sports teams at Butler were introduced to the on looking crowd and by midnight varsity football was on the field running their first official practice of the 2017 season.

The football team ran a full practice on the turf and under the lights for the community to watch. While they were practicing, the clock on the scoreboard counted down the seconds until midnight.

“Our team showed great support for each other tonight, as well as an amazing competitive spirit,” said Coach Nathan Hyatt. “We need to continue to build off of tonight’s atmosphere.”

The community showed up to support Aviator Athletics, and the anticipation for Butler’s fall sports is clear.
