Mud and white pants are not usually a good combination, however put those two together on a cool October Saturday and you have a typical marching band competition that is accompanied by a rainy season. Grant County Marching Band completed its regular season Saturday at the Boone County Rebel Classic. During preliminary competition, the band competed against former 5A band, Montgomery County. Although the field was not in favorable conditions, the band succeeded in sweeping their class and earned another distinguished performance.

During finals competition, all of the bands stepped up to the plate to fight for the top spots and gave crowd pleasing performances. Grant competed in finals with nine other bands including Adair, Beechwood and Williamstown. At the end of the night, Grant County Band finished fourth overall with a distinguished score of 86.75.

“I am really proud of the kids, they have had a wonderful season so far, but it’s not over yet. Now that we enter into quarterfinals this weekend, it is time for them to kick into high gear and really show what this band is made of,” said band director David D. Owens.

Grant County Marching Band will travel to Madison Southern High School in Berea to perform in KMEA Class 4A East Quarterfinals on Oct. 31. The bands performance time will be between 12:45 and 1:15 p.m.
