Ada HS band takes first place at Copley; will compete twice on Saturday

The Ada High School Marching Bulldogs took first place in marching band competition held at Copley High School on Saturday. 

Class B and C (based on school enrollment) were combined at this competition and despite being a smaller school and much smaller band, Ada was still able to come away with the first place trophy. 

Undeterred by the extremely cold, windy conditions, the band received its first-ever superior rating for music. 

"We are very proud of how the students managed to not only perform through some very adverse wind, rain and temperature conditions, but also capture the cross-class championship for B and C schools, as well as earn their first Superior rating in music in the history of our program", said Jonathan Lischak, band director.

The Marching Bulldogs will perform on Friday, Oct. 25, at halftime at Delphos Jefferson. The band will perform its competition show titled "Invasion: The Mystery of Stonehenge." Game time is 7:30 p.m. 

The band then travels Saturday morning to Bloom Carroll High School where they will compete at 10 a.m. The band then competes at 6 p.m. at Tri-Valley High school in Dresden.

The band still seek the coveted overall Superior rating that will qualify them for state competition.
