Congratulations to the SRHS Marching Band!

SRHS Marching Band 2017

In case you hadn’t heard the news, it’s been an unprecedented award winning season for our Marching Band! With a score of 85.4, SRHS placed second in the division finals! Our soloist took home the Soloist award and a $500 cash prize. Having only taken second place, we needed to our score to be one of the top six non-division-winning scores to advance to Grand Championships!  Only one non-division-winning 5A group outscored us, which left us in great position to make grand championships. When the 6A scores were announced, we needed the 6th place band to score less than 85.4, and that group came in with a score of 85.35! We made grand championships by five 100ths of a point! Ecstatic and exhausted, we performed again later that evening and finished 9th out of 12! We also won the Viewer’s Choice Award (not too shabby for a 21 hour day).

We have much to be thankful for this year:
To our talent Students- This unforgettable moment is due to your hard work and dedication! It was a joy to watch your show!
To Director Shedd- your tireless leadership is inspirational!
A special thank you goes to all our Coaches, and the horde of parent volunteers who helped make this possible!

Home Tournament Results!

Thank you so much to all of you who came and supported our home tournament, in spite of the heat. With a score of 76.4, our students not only placed FIRST in our division but also WON the tournament!  We also earned top overall Music Performance, best Visual Performance, and top Music Effect Performance. We will have more photos of the event posted to the site as soon as possible.
