The ROAR at STATE
To cap off a phenominal year, the ROAR earned its FIRST IN HISTORY Superior at the State Marching Contest. We finished 6th in class AAAA and 19th over all in the state.
Wow! What a season. We got in just under the wire as COVID-19 made this day the last day of the 2019-2020 school year and our Seniors last performance as members of the Brookland band. It just goes to show the inpredictability of life.
But that was not all. Five days before assessment, Mr. Hogard found himself sick. It was not COVID, but he was still not able to lead the band. Thankfully, though, Ms. Ferrell was able to step in and make it happen. And she led them to a Superior rating from all 3 judges and a Superior in Sight Reading. Here is the stage performance.
