Marching Band at Millennium HS

The North Pointe Marching Band received 2nd in general effect, 2nd in music, 2nd in visual, and 1st in percussion. The lack of a color guard resulted in a 5th place finish this Saturday at Millennium HS. We will be having our awesome drum line spin flags for a portion of the show, which will help bring up the overall score significantly. Thanks to Lauren Tech for her leadership and ability to adapt mid performance. “You should feel good about your performance because you played well and achieved at a high standard. Sometimes you have to adapt to your audience because they are expecting certain things,” said Director Sadlo.
