The South Hagerstown High School principal and band director refused Wednesday to explain why a decision was made to have the band skip performing at Friday's annual football game between the school and its crosstown rival, North Hagerstown High School. The decision for the South High band not to play occurred at the school level, South High Principal Richard Akers said. The school is not required to have the band play at the game, he said. "We had an internal issue we had to take care of," Akers said.
