This past Friday, March 11, the WHS Band had their Concert Music Performance Assessment at Chipley High School.  The band was adjudicated by three judges for their stage performance, and by one judge for their Sight Reading performance in a separate area.  The band received STRAIGHT SUPERIOR RATINGS from all judges from this performance.


On Saturday, March 12, our Winter Guard traveled to Daphne, Alabama, to compete in their final competition before championships in April.  At our last competition the group placed 3rd and were within ONE point of first and second.  On Saturday our group kicked it into high gear and placed FIRST in their class, passing both Pace High School and Choctawhatchee with a 4-point margin between our school and second place.
