The Anderson County marching band recently placed first out of 13 marching bands competing at the 4A East regional competition this past weekend in Berea.
There were three visual and three music judges, and the band took first in every category, Band Director Patrick Brady said via e-mail.
“This is by far the best I’ve ever heard my band playing and marching,” Brady said. “It is been a very tough season because I have taken them to nothing but very tough competition and my method paid off.
“We have been doing everything we could possible to get ready.
“We had a couple championship directors come and work with the group as well as traveling over to Nelson County during fall break and practicing on their Astroturf.”
The Marching Band will be competing at the state semi-final competition this upcoming weekend.
Only four bands will move on to compete in the state finals.
Last year the band broke the high school’s record by placing third at the state finals competition.
