Band Competes in FLO and Yamaha Cup


Charlie Celtic, Staff Writer

The Marching Celtics are busy this fall when most marching bands are not in season.

The Marching Celtics learned that they took 2nd place at the FLO Marching Competition from their first show they submitted two weeks ago – there were 11 Division 1 bands competing from across the country and the Marching Celtics were just 0.5 points behind first place!  Not only were they second in their division, but they were 4th overall out of 21 bands. They outscored all the Division 2 and Division 3 bands. Go Celtics!

The Celtics also participated in their second virtual competition, The Yamaha Cup, in September. They were blessed with beautiful weather and an enthusiastic crowd of 50 spectators!

The band has been practicing hard since this summer, and the virtual competitions have allowed them to put their skills to the test against bands from across the country. Wish them luck as they continue their competition season!
