As I've stated before, I'm a big fan or marching bands, including the CSU Marching Band.
This last weekend was the state marching band competition for the Colorado Bandmasters Association at Hughes Stadium in Fort Collins. Bands from class 4A and 5A converged upon Sonny Lubbick field to impress the audience and judges for their chance to earn the state title. Of the many bands that competed, Fort Collins' own Fossil Ridge High School Sabercats Marching Band took home the title State Championship for the second year in a row. Want to see why? The music and the precision involved in performing was just breathtaking. You have to see it:
Congratulations to all the students who spent days and hours practicing for this event, and the parents for their support. Will Fossil Ridge earn their third state title next year? If they keep giving us shows like this, I would think they will.
