The Wildcat Marching Band earned its third Southern California School Band and Orchestra Association (SCSBOA) Championship Gold Medal in program history on Saturday, winning the 4A Division at Warren High School.
Competing against the 12 highest scoring bands in the 4A Division, the Wildcats earned a score of 88.33, finishing 1.5 points ahead of second place South Hills High School, the previous 4A Champion. Besides winning overall Gold, the band also won Awards for High Music, High General Effect, and High Percussion with a score of 95.
Earning championship gold was a perfect way to end a stellar season that included the inaugural Valencia HS Field Show in October, where the Wildcats took Tournament Sweepstakes, High Music, High General Effect, High Visual, and both Percussion and Auxiliary (Colorguard) Awards. That was followed by an outstanding performance in November at Hart Rampage, earning the Wildcats another Tournament Sweepstakes Award, as well as High General Effect, High Visual, and Percussion Caption Awards, and also Division 4A First Place for Auxiliary.
Other awards this season included second place, Division 4A, and second place Auxiliary, at the Moorpark High School Field Show, while a trip to San Francisco for the Logan High School Field Show netted the Wildcats another second place award in Division 4A, as well as awards for High Music, High General Effect, and High Percussion.
“It has been a wonderful year for the marching band and what a great way to finish,” band director Jason Marshall said.
