Marching Band


Marching band season starts with a 1 day "band camp" in mid-August for preliminary instruction on the marching basics as well as rehearsing/learning the show music. Marching band is in full force from the start of school until the last home Varsity football game in late October. The band marches at several events throughout the year: halftime at all home Varsity football games (4 or 5), homecoming parade, and the Memorial Day parades in Ackley and Wellsburg. 


This year's show was "The Music of Chicago", featuring popular charts from the band "Chicago". Tunes included "Make Me Smile", "Saturday in the Park/Wishing You Were Here", and "I'm A Man". We added color guard this year after an 11-year hiatus, with coach Misty Hunt leading and instructing our new guard. You can watch our full show below along with year's past shows as well!
