The Pride of Elk City Marching Band earned first place in class 4A at the Annual Superior Marching Contest in Lawton. Only bands who earned superior ratings at Regional competition move on to the Superior competition. “Essentially, I think our kids found a different level of energy the other kids just didn’t have,” said Randy Brooks, Director.

It has been a rainy season for the band throughout their competition season. Even as the band took the field at state, rain began to fall. “Our kids had an advantage because we’ve fought the weather all fall. I told the band Let’s just cinch it up and go for it,” said Brooks.

Elk city was also presented the Charlie Millender award, as the overall band of the day. Charlie Millender was the founder of the Superior Marching contest, and the award is presented to the band who earns the most overall points in the competition.

As the band wraps up marching season, they prepare for the 24th Annual Prism concert. The concert will showcase the band’s marching songs, and students will also perform comical skits appropriate for all ages. The first two afternoon performances will be for the staff and students. The evening performance will be open to the public on November 6, at 7:00 p.m. Admission is free.
