The Medina Mustang Marching Band competed for the first time this season on Saturday at Hilton High School.

Seven schools performed in four classifications. In SS1, Medina earned 1st place with a score of 78.35 followed by East Irondequoit at 77.60. The Pride of Rochester performed in exhibition.  The LS3 class had three competitors and Greece earned 1st with 75.5 followed by Hilton at 70.35 and Auburn with 62.75. Corning Painted Post was the only band in the LS2 class and they scored 73.4.

The Medina Marching Band is under the direction of Matthew Jaeger and assistant directors Kyla Leno and Diana Baker. All three are graduates of Medina and participated in the marching band. Their show this year is “Take to the Skies.” This year’s band consists of 91 students of which 27 are seniors and 23 rookies.

Medina’s next performance is our home show – the “Fall Festival of Bands” – this Saturday. It’s a great opportunity to see these young people and all their talents and skills.
