CHS MARCHING FALCONS display their colorful talents across a football field at a recent band competition. Hours of practice and dedicated band members and band boosters lend time to creating what has become nothing short of a masterpiece.

The award-winning Marching Falcons Band marched in their last competition of the season at the Virginia Marching Band Cooperative State Championships, at Liberty university, in Lynchburg Virginia, on Saturday, Nov. 3.

The competition consisted of 39 total high school bands, all from around Virginia.  The event was so large that it was held at two different sites, at Liberty University and at Lynchburg City Stadium. Out of the 39 bands, 12 bands would make it to finals.

In only their second year competing in this particular competition, the Marching Falcons finished 2nd in the group 2A conference, moving on to the finals where they would finish eight overall.

“The atmosphere was electric and full of energy,” senior band member Abby Campbell said. “Everyone was excited to receive their final placements.”

All in all, the season was a success. The Marching Falcons finished in the top five in all eight competitions in which they competed, winning three of them.

“It felt like a great season,” band director Mike Lane said. “Everyone seemingly tried their best and we got out what everyone put into the group.”
