On Saturday, October 1, the Marching Firebirds participated in a Bands of America Regional Championship for the first time in more than 10 years. The event was the most competitive circumstance for our band in the history of Lakota West High School, and the Marching Firebirds' debut placement was the talk of the competition. Going up against 21 other bands from Kentucky, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois and Michigan, the Marching Firebirds placed sixth overall, and tied for second in music. Of the nine Bands of America regional competitions already held this fall involving 191 bands from 15 states, the Marching Firebirds earned the 22nd highest overall score and the 17th highest score in music.
