With a great season under their belt, the Marching  Band didn’t think they’d go out with anything less than a bang. However, at their last competition the Band scored much lower than expected.

Previous competitions this season held multiple first and second place wins for them. This lead to them securing a place at states.

According to Marching Band Director Lisa Volz this was really their ultimate goal. In her opinion, they were very successful despite placing last in their flight.

“We were placing between tenth and twelfth in the whole state all season,” Volz explains.  Volz says she was expecting them to place where they did at states, even with multiple first and second places at the competitions they attended.

Out of the bands in their flight, only twelve qualified for states. Volz says even though the South Lake Marching Band was last, getting there was still a big accomplishment.

In Volz’s eyes, the students performed very well, claiming she didn’t see any flaws in their performance.

As for next year, Volz says that she will be making some changes.

“How I organize the show, when we start working on the music and the drills,” says Volz. “And I think that’s all I’m going to tell you for now,” Volz says with a smile.
