The Ponca City High School Marching Band earned a superior, or I, rating at the Central State Marching Festival held recently at Bill Snyder Stadium on the campus of Kansas State University at Manhattan, Kansas.

Thirty nine bands from Kansas, Oklahoma, Nebraska, and Missouri competed at this contest in front of an appreciative crowd and a national audience via webcast.  The superior rating is the highest rating that is given at this particular event.

The Big Blue Band is marching at the Mound of Sound Invitational Marching Contest today (Oct. 10) at Southwestern College in Winfield, Kansas.  Their performance time is 12:40 p.m.  This contest will feature ratings and rankings with awards also given in specific areas such as percussion and color guard.

David Christy, Director of Bands, expressed appreciation to his staff, students, and sponsors.

“I appreciate all of the help shown by so many people.  In particular, our parental sponsors were absolutely superb,” he said.  “Our students continue to represent Ponca City well and are working towards daily improvement of both the playing and marching aspects of a very difficult show.”
