HHS marching band has strong opening weekend
The Raiders Marching Band had their first two competitions this weekend.
At Eden Prairie High School, they earned first place out of six bands for placement. The Raiders also took "Best Colorguard" and "Best Percussion" caption awards in their class.
At Eastview High School, the Raiders took fourth place in their class. Even with a lower placement, they still took the "Best Drum Major," "Best Percussion" and "Best Soloist (Michael Notch)" caption awards.
The Raiders will perform their show at the football game Friday, and compete at Rosemount High School Saturday, Sept 14. The competition begins at 5 p.m. This is the closest show to Hastings, so fan support is encouraged.
