The Archbold High School band received an Excellent rating in Class B at the District Large Group Adjudicated Event, Saturday, March 9 at Sylvania Southview High School.
The Ohio Music Education Association sponsored the event.
The Excellent rating is a II. The top rating is a I, or Superior.
Beth Voll, AHS band director, said the band competed in Class C for about 15 years. About three years ago, the decision was made to move up to Class B, where the music is more difficult.
“As a band, we set goals in January and decided we wanted to push ourselves with challenging music instead of playing easier ‘safe’ music, and we totally reached our goals,” Voll said.
