The Marching Band’s color guard prepares for their show, vortex. The event was held at Kings Highschool on saturday, Sept. 10. The ensemble recieved second place and Reserve Grand Champions.

The Marching Band performed in their first competition on Saturday, Sept. 10. The competition was held at Kings High school, in the school gym. It was held indoors because of the rain.
Since the event was held indoors, the band performed a “standstill”. A stand still means they stood in one spot, while performing their show, Vortex.
“I thought it was a lot of fun, but I was sad that we had to show inside instead of marching outside,” said Abby Motley 9.
At the end of the day the group received second place, and Reserve Grand Champions.
“I was upset that we performed inside, but I’m also proud of us for getting Reserve Grand Champions,” said Kate Willis 11.
It is rare for competitions to be held indoors, so for being the ensemble’s first of the season, it was a strange experience.
“It was confusing for all of us but we pulled through and we got second place,” said Lydia Cooke 10.
Overall, the group did a great job for the circumstances they were given. Also they were able to show how much time and effort they have put in this year’s show, Vortex.
