LETTER: Band of Hawks set record in 2000 that still stands

-A A +A

I would like to comment on the statement made that the Band of Hawks had set a school high score at this year's AA West Regional competition of 89.2 in Owensboro, placing second overall.

This is a very good score but it is on record that in 2000 Class 2A West Regionals in Hart County, LaRue County scored a 91.15 to take first place that year. The results can be viewed at http://marching.kyband.com/kmeascores/2000AAWestRegionals.html.

Being an alumni of the band, I am very proud of the accomplishment the kids did this year on winning 2-A State Championship but I feel past accomplishments need to set straight for previous band members.
