Midlothian Marching Contest

Highlander Band opened their 2018 competition season with a Second Place Finish in finals at the highly competitive Midlothian Marching Contest on September 29, 2018.  The band also came home with trophies for Best Marching and Best Percussion.  The band warmed up for their prelims performance in a torrential downpour. As the rain subsided, they took the field in wet uniforms and gave a performance that earned them FIRST PLACE in Prelims.
