Libra wows at first competition


GOT CHEER. The marching band performed at its first football game on Fri. Sept. 8. In full uniform, the group provided the fans in the stands with an impactful beginning to the football and marching season. A loud roar erupted from the crowd as the band started with their performance. PHOTO PROVIDED.

   After its performance at Kings High School, the band received second place overall, or Grand Reserve Champion, during awards.

   The overall score for Sycamore was 73.3, 0.2 points behind the front runners from Campbell County, KY, who had a score of 73.5.

   Scores are determined through a variety of categories such as visual, percussion, music, or general effect. Sycamore won Best Overall Percussion and Best Overall Music.

   The band is now competing in Open Class, which is the largest classification. In years prior, the marching band participated in class 4A, the class below.

   However, the band stresses competition only against the rubric of weeks past. For each competition, the group strives to earn better scores than weeks prior.

   The band is set to compete at Bellbrook High School on Sat., Sept. 16; an itinerary is still in the works.
