LHS Band excels at recent competition, will compete again today
Sep 22, 2012 12:00 am
The Lebanon High School Marching Band competed with 10 other high schools last week at the Indian Nation Marching Invitational at Montgomery Central High School in Cunningham, Tenn., and came home with some hardware to show for the effort.
The LHS Marching Band was rewarded with several trophies for its performance Sept. 15. The LHS color guard and the LHS percussion section earned the Grand Champion Color Guard and Grand Champion Percussion Awards, respectively. The band's hornline placed second in class behind Clarksville High School, and Drum Major Maeghan Hatfield placed second overall behind Rossview High School.
"They get the trophy and a sack full of pride," Spear said, adding that the band is lucky to have so many boosters. "The Lebanon High School Marching Band sincerely appreciates the continued support of the Lebanon community."
Spear said the band is gearing up to take on some fierce competition again this weekend.
"We're going to competing this Saturday," he said. "We're hopeful we'll do well again, but it's a pretty strong group. They keep growing a little more every year."
The Blue Devil Band will take the field again Sept. 22, at Hickman County High School. Their performance time is 2:45 p.m. The competition is open to the public, tickets are $8 and can be purchased at the gate.
