This past Saturday, the Highlander Band and Emerald Guard marched their way to the Lucas Oil Stadium where they competed at the Indiana State School Music Association (ISSMA) State competition for the seventh consecutive year.
Although the band did not finish as well as they had hoped to, they believed this season overall has been one of the most successful seen in recent years. Their enigmatic theme and months of hard work helped them receive 5th place at the competition.
“I was a little disappointed [with the placement] because we had such a great season, but [I am] still super proud of the band being a part of the top five bands of the state,” said sophomoreNick Huber.
Students roundup their binders and books, head to their lockers, and hurry to the MPR room for a monthly Interact Club meeting. They all sit at their tables and take in advice from New Albany Rotary Club members with full eyes and ears.
