The Ropes Marching Band won the gold medal and glory Tuesday when they were named the winner in the six-man state band marching contest in San Antonio.
They were under the direction of Donovan Ashcraft and Michael Burcham. This marked the first time ever that a six-man state contest was held. Ropes beat out four other competitors in the final contest, including Whiteface.
The band members arrived home late Wednesday night and were honored Thursday morning with a school assembly in the auditorium. (Staff Photo)
