Marching band brings home first and second places at competition

Devon Krum, Staff Writer

The entire band got up earlier than expected to train, go to band camp and practicing many times before school. Every session they had lasted around an hour or so, with more practice happening during the school day as well. Some of the members of the band even put in effort after the school day as well, albeit individually.

  The marching band’s training paid off rather well as they achieved first place during their first competition of the season on Sept. 26. They beat three other bands in division 3A at Smith-Cotton, divisions being based on school size.

  On Oct. 17, they all competed once more in their second and final competition of the year, placing third overall out of the 11 other bands in their division at the Trenton contest. 

   “I believe the band did really well for our last performance of the year. I look forward to next year’s season and the competition then,” junior Corey Nahrstedt said.
