Highlights of the 2020 Marching Season

With the COVID-19 pandemic, the band faced many challenges. Modified band camp and shorter morning rehearsals coupled with all competitions and other normal appearances being canceled led to an unusual season. A shorter football season gave us 3 halftime performances and we were one of only 47 bands statewide that were able to submit a video for the virtual state contest, earning our 33rd consecutive "1" rating.   Video
