This year, the Pride of Paoli band has had a very successful season. Over the weekend the band participated in the State Finals at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis. The band performed at 11:49 a.m. and had their best performance of the season, according to band director Bill Laughlin.
This year, the band placed fourth in their class. The band put their finishing touches on the show during rehearsals the week before State Finals. They also performed their show at many football games leading up to State and performed at a pep session the Friday before the competition.
“It was a joy and an honor to work and develop the show this year,” said Laughlin.
When you see marching band members and band directors, congratulate them on a wonderful season.
