On Saturday, October 24, 2015, the LA “Spirit of the Wildcats” Marching Band traveled to Glencliff HS to the Colt Classic Marching Band Invitational. There were 18 bands present including the “Spirit of the Wildcats”. The Wildcats were in the Blue Class in which there were 5 bands present. The Wildcats took 3rd place in this Class, tied for 1st in Field Commander.

The Band received superior ratings in music, field commander and percussion, and an excellent in color guard. As we looked at the overall scores, among all 18 bands, in music the band placed 6th and in the sweepstakes category took 7th place overall. This is probably the best LA Band has done in years with greater potential for continued growth and to reach higher aspirations.
