The Marching Titans

The Marching Titans have officially ended their competitive season. I’m sure those of you within
earshot of the school are glad that there won’t be anymore 7:00AM or 9:00PM rehearsals.
The "MT" attended three competitions this year in addition to our community and school performance obligations.

When all was said and done they rehearsed for over 300 hours this year. That does not count sectionals and the individual practice that these hard working student musicians put in from August 5th until October 21st!

They brought home five trophies including High Honors Overall at all three competitions, Drum Majors, and Percussion. All the hardware is being displayed in the trophy case in the Link. Since most competitions are based on school size (our div. is usually 300-600 enrollment) sometimes they were competing against bands that were over twice their size. Sometimes they wereeven beating schools in the divisions above us!

They represented all of El Paso-Gridley with class at every event they attended. Even though I'm sad to see the book closed on our POTC Trilogy show. I am really looking forward to next season and what I'll be able to accomplish now that I have a year of real life experience.
