Three sisters from Logan are making the most of their time at Ohio University by performing together with the Marching 110.
Lindsay Dickerson is a fifth-year student who plays cymbals and also is administrative assistant for the 110.
Lauren is a junior and is the marching section leader for the trombone section.
Their youngest sister, Meghan, is a freshman and student manager for the band.
The three sisters are all former members of the Logan High School Marching Chieftains, and are daughters of Jeff and Lianne Dickerson of Logan.
The Dickersons will have their last performance together at the Beef O' Brady’s Bowl in St. Petersburg, Fla., on Dec. 23.
Lindsay said she always planned on going to OU and joining the Marching 110. She said her dad and two of her cousins also were in the 110.
“I basically watched them all the time when I was younger. So, I knew that is what I wanted to do,” she said.
Lauren said she was deciding between two schools for college, but the 110 and Lindsay convinced her to choose OU and join the band. Meghan saw both of her oldest sisters perform with the band and decided it was something she wanted to be a part of, too.
“In high school, I didn’t get to be in the band with (Lindsay), but I came here and for a year we got to do something that all three of us love,” Meghan said.
Meghan said one of her favorite memories involves going to New York City with the band to perform at a New York Giants game.
“It was the first time either of us had ever been there. We were there for a few days and we roomed together and we explored the city together,” Lindsay said.
Lauren said all three have made friends together and separately in the band, which has 240 members.
“We are all having a unique experience, but in the big picture of things, it is also a shared experience too,” Lindsay said, adding that it was surreal to witness her two younger sisters go through the same freshman experiences at OU that she did.
Lauren said their next adventure and Lindsay’s last will be the bowl game in Florida.
“It is awesome that all three of us get to experience a bowl game with the 110,” Meghan said.
Lindsay said they did not expect to get to a bowl game and she thought her 110 career was already finished.
“But, now that we found out we are going to this bowl game, it is one last thing that I can make the most of and share with them,” Lindsay said.
Lindsay finished her college career as OU’s finals week wrapped up on Friday and said being in the 110 was the best part of her experience at OU.
“I’m about to graduate and I think being able to look back on some of my favorite memories...they are experiences that I can share with my sisters,” Lindsay said.
