The Manhasset High School Marching Band and Color Guard traveled to Bergenfield, N.J. on Sunday Oct. 11, and encountered their most difficult competition yet. Five bands made up Division 1, each anxious to perform their best as the season reaches its final stretch.
Manhasset’s Color Guard, led by Co-captains Audrey Edelstein and Kiki Barnes, were able to pull it out and won First Place, Best Color Guard, at the 2009 Bergen County Band Invitational.
Their mastery of the drill and use of flags within the choreography of the music is proof of the hard work and sacrifice they have made, and the skill of their advisor, Ms. Sandra Baskin. The Marching Band was awarded Second Place, missing by only one point, but vowing to come back even stronger this weekend at the New York State Championships in Uniondale.
