Our very own RCHS marching band traveled to Clarksville, TN to participate in the Bands of America competition this past weekend. After a stunning first performance, they received 3rd in their class and made it in the top 10 out of 28 bands! After making it into finals and taking a short break, the band came back with a performance that landed them 8th place overall and a score of 72.6. I got the chance to speak with a few band members and get their opinion on how they felt about the performances. Some said that they weren’t their best performances but they still consider the weekend a success. Others said that finals was one of the strongest and most energetic performances that they have ever had. Overall, we are very proud of our Mighty Laker Band. Can’t wait to see what has yet to come!
