Gator Bowl Icon
Over Winter Break our Marching Tigers traveled to Jacksonville, Florida to compete in the Taxslayer Bowl Contest of Champions. In all, the Tigers earned 10 trophies and 3 plaques in taking First Place in their class in both the field show and parade competitions. Combining with the 8 separate caption awards for marching, music, and general effect, the Marching Tigers earned the Sweepstakes Grand Champion Award for the show for the highest overall score for the combined events. This is the first ever national event that the band has attended, competing against bands from six other states. Additionally, the band performed at halftime of the Taxslayer Gator Bowl with those other schools in a massed band show. Congratulations to the Marching Tigers for representing the school, city, and Commonwealth so well by performance and by their behavior and dignity while away from home. We are proud of Mr. Elgin and all the Marching Tigers!
