Over 900 students from across Kentucky auditioned for All-State Band this past Saturday, and RCHS was fortunate to have three of their students selected this year. This is the most people to make All-State from Laker Band in over ten years.
Sophomore Sally Wilson placed 9th in Percussion-Mallets. Senior Xander Betts-Jimenez placed 2nd in Concert Band-Euphonium, and Junior Steven Bernard placed eighth in Symphonic Band-Clarinet.
Each of these Laker Band members were in the top 10 for their instrument. Sally Wilson is the first student to make it back-to-back years since Clay Ackerman made it four consecutive years in 2013-16. These three students will be traveling to Louisville on February 5-7 for rehearsal. The All-State Concert will be held February 8th.
