The ROAR Places 9th at Mid-South Marching Classic
The ROAR did an outstanding job on October 6th, 2018, placing 9th at the Mid-South Marching Classic. We scored in the top 8 in all but one category, but will be working to fix that one category and improve the others before we attend the West Memphis Open on Saturday, October 13. Mr. Hogard, Miss Ferrell, Ms. Nelson and Mr. Liouh are very, very happy with our results and look forward to an outstanding week of improvement.
The most impressive accomplishments for the ROAR came from our individual competition captions: The ROAR Color Guard - in its first year of existence with all beginner spinners - earned 2nd in class; The ROAR Percussion Section earned 1st in class; and Field Commander Hannah Smith earned 1st in Class! We are super proud of all these kids. Here is the link to the members of each of these groups!
