On Saturday, the Marching Knights competed in the Indiana State School Music Association (ISSMA) Class B State Finals, coming away in fourth, the same spot they earned in 2011.
"I think anything in the top five is about right," NMK Band Director Bob Medworth said. "(The students) seemed to think (we did well). They seemed happy."
Goshen finished second, followed by Greenwood, Northview, Concord, Northridge, Floyd Central, Munster, Plainfield and North Side.
Jasper's show was named, "Trinity."
"I thought we were pretty good," he said. "The stuff I could hear was in tune."
However, after several months of preparation for Saturday, Medworth admitted there is an empty feeling in his stomach after the state finals each year.
"Everyone was really happy with our theme, 'Don't Give Up,'" he continued. "I think we're approaching it the right way. But all of it goes away."
Now, Medworth said the Marching Knights have to change direction and begin preparation for the pep band season and Christmas Spectacular.
