Local schools march to third place finishes

Local schools march to third place finishes”

Less than a point separated the Rome Free Academy marching band from finishing first in its division at the New York State Field Band Conference (NYSFBC) Championships in Syracuse's Carrier Dome on Sunday.

The Sullivan High School Screaming' Eagles have been led by Chuck Moore since 2012 with Natalie Moore serving as Color Guard Director and Sullivan Choir Director. This year, 35 high schools will be competing, as well as four schools, including Cary high School, performing exhibitions.

The band won the Class A title during the Kentucky Music Education Association's contest Saturday, October 28th at Papa John's Cardinal Stadium in Louisville.

Cary Band Day's participating schools stretch across North Carolina and even include some schools in Virginia.

Brentwood has been in the national class, the highest class of competitors, since 2013.

Meiss commented, "we had a great bunch of hard-working kids this year, and I think we had a really great show". This year marks the band's 91st year. Minick said the band's reputation comes from the example set by the Town of Cary with this yearly event. "The band wants to do that as well".

But taking third is a big accomplishment, he said.

Band members from across New Mexico and surrounding states are still putting their hearts into their performances, including those who marched this weekend at the Zia Marching Band Fiesta.
