SSHS Marching Band Named Grand Champion at Prariland

It’s hard to miss the very large trophy that now resides in the office of Wildcats Marching Band Director Charles McCauley. It is more than a foot taller than the big trophy the band captured at the very same contest, at Prariland, last year.

Performing first in the contest this past Saturday, the Wildcats Marching Band got First Division scores from all judges and also was voted most outstanding band, best percussion group, best color guard, best drum majors and best general effect. McCauley said Prariland has a smaller contest but he added there were some good bands there. He said the band finally put it all together Saturday, both marching and musically.

MCCauley said the band’s performance at Friday night’s football game was their best so far this season but he said Saturday’s performance topped that. He said everything clicked. McCauley said critiques from the judges were very complimentary with just some minor suggestions for improvement. McCauley said a large number of Wildcats’ band boosters attended the contest.

McCauley said the band would continue the Music by Mel Brooks show through the regular football season. After that, McCauley said there might be some changes.
