SYRACUSE – After months of hard work, the Medina Mustang Band earned its highest score of the season on Sunday at the state competition in the Carrier Dome.

Medina’s score of 92.35 was good for second place in the Small School 1 Division. Medina finished just behind East Syracuse Minoa, which scored 92.60.

More than 4,000 high school students competed Sunday at the 44th annual New York State Field Band Conference championships in the Carrier Dome. There were more than 50 high school marching bands from three states.

Each band performs a seven- to 10-minute show, and they are evaluated on their musical and visual presentation.
