Rain Does Not DAMPEN our Marching Indians Spirit!

This spirit was exhibited by the band's BEST performance of the show so far this year!

The weather must have thought our Marching Indians were performing a rain dance rather than a trip "Around the World".  Congratulations to everyone with your resiliency on a challenging weather day.

Though the other bands in our class did not perform outside, your band staff is confident that we would have gave those bands a run for their money.

Compared to the other 8 bands that did perform outside, we finished easily in 1st place almost 10 points ahead of the 2nd place band!  In addition, our awesome drumline and color guard scored double digits above all groups the in their caption!

MCHS YOU!  Go Marching Indians!
