South Walton High School's Marching Band received an overall superior score in the Blackwater Classic Marching Band Festival Sept. 30 at Milton High School.

The band received superior scores in almost every category including drum major and color guard, an exciting accomplishment for the now almost 40-member strong team. The band performed the medley of music they have been sharing at the SWHS football games this season.

The Color Guard showed off their new costumes, while the band wore their new uniforms sponsored last year by donations from the community. SWHS's Marching Band, directed by Mr. Bobby Escamilla and Drum Major Michela Gray, will perform at Troy University's annual marching band festival Oct. 7.
