Preparations for the 2019-2020 marching band season have already begun. The theme for marching band’s halftime show is “Dance to The Music” featuring Abba, The Bee Gees, Donna Summer, Earth, Wind, and Fire, Lady GaGa, and Fall Out Boy.

The leaders of the band have already been chosen as well. To qualify for a position, a band member must fill out an application and do an interview.  Following the application and interview the rest of marching band votes for who they think would be best qualified for this position.

The following is a list of positions. Band Captain: Ricky Wiemer (11), Drum Major: Maddie McMickle (10) (head drum major) and Joy Sullivan (10), Brass Captain: Austin Hallman (10), Percussion Captain: Kaden Douglas (11), Danceline Captain: Breanna Pollock (11), Color Guard Captain: Reese Hamsley (10), Equipment Manager: Ryan Fennel (11), Librarian: Jacob Hoover (10) and Rachel Ward (11), Flute Section Leader: Olivia Wentzell (10), Clarinet Section Leader: Gracie Moreland (10), Saxophone Section Leader: Victoria Crickmar (11), Mellophone Section Leader: Cole Zelman (9), Trumpet Section Leaders: Jacob Carlstrom (10) and Maiya Johnson (9), Low Brass Section Leader: Andrew Stone (11), Tuba Section Leader: Hunter Davis (9).

“It’s honestly an honor. I love serving and helping lead such a talented and amazing group of people especially for my senior year,” Alfred Young (11) said, “There’s so many opportunities being nominated as brass captain. This is a year that no one wants to miss!”

The plan for next year looks promising. Last year there was a “wow factor” of the fly over flag that went over the entire band. There is a plan to have a different ending for the show each game.

“I think next year is going to be an amazing improvment and just a creation of an ongoing reputation of greatness,” Breanna Pollock (11) said. “I hope we have started a program that just keeps getting better.”

Practice for the upcoming marching band season has already begun. The spring game, May 17, will be the first debut with the new auxiliary and band members,
