Northview tops at Brownsburg

Sunday, September 27, 2009

BROWNSBURG -- The Northview Marching Knights participated in the Sound of Brownsburg Invitational Saturday and came away with a first-place finish.

The Marching Knights scored 71.60 in the competition and dominated the additional awards capturing overall Visual, General Effect, Auxillary and Percussion. Jasper, which finished second place with a score of 69.60, prevented a clean sweep of the awards by capturing top honors for Overall Music.

Plainfield rounded out the competition, finishing in third place with 68.35.

The Marching Knights came into the competition ranked No. 1 among Class B bands in the www.indianamarching.com poll and Jasper, which also won the Class B trophy at the Avon Meijer Invitation Saturday, was ranked No. 2 in the poll, which came out Sept. 21.

The Clay City Imperial Regiment had a busy, yet successful Saturday, placing second in Class D at the Avon Meijer Invitational, and third at the Meijer Greenwood Band Invitational.

In Avon, the Imperial Regiment registered a score of 55.75, while Springs Valley, ranked No. 1 among Class D bands, won the trophy and all awards with an overall score of 71.05 and Riverton Parke placed third, scoring 45.95.

In the Greenwood competition, Clay City scored 50.85, slightly behind second place Morristown (53.05), but ahead of Triton Central (46.65), which finished fourth. Springs Valley again exhibited its dominance in Class D by winning the trophy and sweeping the awards in this competition as well.

Clay City (30 votes) entered the competition just outside of the Top 10 among Class D bands in the Sept. 21 www.indianamarching.com poll. Monrovia (47 votes) currently holds the No. 10 spot, with Morristown (35 votes) slightly ahead of the Imperial Regiment.

Poll rankings will be updated today at 9 p.m., on www.indianamarching.com.

Both the Marching Knights and Imperial Regiment will be in action Oct. 3, at the District Competition at Southport High School.
