On Saturday October 11th, members of the marching band participated in the Rocky Mountain Marching Band Invitational held at BYU's LaVell  Edwards Stadium. This year, there were a record thirteen 9th grade students in the Skyhawk Marching Band. The students had their best performance of the season and placed third in their division. A select few 7th and 8th grade students were also able to join on the fun trip to BYU and even help carry equipment to the field for performance.

Tanner Murray, Jesse Christensen, Jill Ashcraft, and Finlay Lofthouse are pictured enjoying the experience.

With only 3 more competitions left in the season, the marching band hopes to continue to raise their performance level and continue to place, hopefully winning at the state championship held on Halloween in St. George.
