South Pasadena High’s School Marching Band and members of the Color guard came home with a second place in last Saturday competition at Mission Viejo High School.
SPHS performed in Class 3A against El Toro High School and earned a score of 70.55, resulting in second place. It was an improvement, as the Tigers scored 69.35 in a competition a week earlier. Cumulatively, Tigers are now in third place out of all the bands in the 3A division.
As part of the weekend competition, SPHS’s percussion earned a score of 15.40 out of 20, putting them in second place alongside Color guard, which finished with a score of 11.90. The increase in score, as well as the cumulative placing, was a confidence booster as band members look ahead to their third competition on Saturday.
