*Imperial Regiment receives votes in website poll

The third week poll from www.indianamarching.com was released late Monday, with the Northview Marching Knights still holding on to the top spot.

The Knights received 120 total votes in the website's Class B poll, including all eight first-place votes.

Coming in second was Jasper with 107 votes, followed by Greenwood (104), Goshen (95), Concord (85), Plainfield (78), New Castle Chrysler (76), DeKalb (67), Northridge (57) and Floyd Central (49).

There were few significant changes in the Class B poll this week. Jasper moved from third to second, slipping by Greenwood.

In addition, Plainfield moved from eighth to sixth, jumping over New Castle, DeKalb and Northridge.

Northview has maintained the top spot in the poll since the preseason.

In Class D, Clay City received 11 votes this week, good enough for 16th.

The Imperial Regiment had ranked 14th in the class last week.

There was a bit of a shakeup in the Class D rankings this week, but not among the top three bands.

Lewis Cass still owns the top spot with 115 votes and five first-place nods, followed by Forest Park (111 votes, two first-place), and Springs Valley (110 votes, one first-place).

Paoli jumped from fifth last week to fourth with 88 votes, followed by Woodlan (84), Bluffton (69), Northwestern (67), Orleans and South Spencer (56 each) and North Posey (50).

Both Bluffton and Northwestern were not ranked last week.

Both the Marching Knights and Imperial Regiment will compete in the Avon Meijer Invitational Saturday.

Class D competition will begin the afternoon and Clay City will hit the field at 4 p.m., followed by Clinton Prairie and Morristown.

Awards for Class D and C will take place following an exhibition performance from Marian University at 6:23 p.m.

The Marching Knights will be the last Class B band to take the field. Northview is scheduled to perform at 8:59 p.m.

Following Class A competition and an exhibition performance from Avon, awards for Class B and A will be given out.

After Saturday's contest, both Clay City and Northview will begin preparation for the Indiana State School Music Association District competitions. Clay City competes in the Columbus East District while Northview takes part in the Southport District.
