Local Bands Excel at State Competition

Posted

MURFREESBORO (October 26) — Carroll County was well-represented at the Division I Marching Band State Championship Saturday at Riverdale High School. Among the 24 participating bands were the McKenzie Marching Rebels, the Huntingdon Marching Mustangs, the West Carroll Marching War Eagles and the Hollow Rock-Bruceton Central Marching Tigers.

Due to field conditions caused by heavy rain, bands competed indoors, performing their shows standing still. Due to the limitations, color guards were not judged.

McKenzie, Huntingdon and West Carroll were among the ten bands to advance to finals competition.

The Marching Mustangs earned second place overall in the finals, improving on their third place preliminary placement. Trumpet player Tizzy Smith was named the top soloist in finals competition with a score of 95.5.

The Marching Rebels finished in sixth overall in finals, matching their preliminary placement.

The Marching War Eagles placed eighth in finals, improving from ninth in preliminaries. Field commander Kaci Fuller won first place in finals with a score of 98.5 after finishing in second in preliminary competition.
