MEDINA – While it was a chilly night in Victor on Saturday, the Medina Mustang Band was hot! Medina took first place in the SS1 class with a score of 84.75, followed by East Irondequoit, second with 80.35.

Medina Band Director Jim Steele commented that “the kids once again did a fantastic job on Saturday regardless of less than stellar weather conditions. They worked hard all week and the reward was a great performance again this weekend. We are looking forward to continuing our journey together to represent the community and our school at the State Championships on Nov. 1. Regardless of outcome this has been one of my most rewarding years of teaching marching band in Medina. Great kids, great instructors and great band parents and supporters, who could ask for more!”

Next Saturday the band competes in Orchard Park before heading for the Dome in Syracuse on Sunday, Nov. 1.
