On Friday, October 19th, the Belleville East Marching Lancers performed at one of the most competitive band competitions in the country, Bands of America. Mr. Tessereau and Mr. Hassall set a goal: they wanted to be within the top 20 bands, if not the 14 finalists. Waiting to see if they made finals or not the band members convened in the PAC and watched several bands perform until awards and final placements were announced Saturday evening at 4:00pm.

The finalists were announced and if the band was to make it in the top 14, then they were to head off on buses dressed and ready to give their all, and if they didn’t make finals, they were given the opportunity to watch 14 amazing bands perform their hearts out. Unfortunately, the Marching Lancers did not make finals, however, they achieved their goal and got 19th place out of 66 bands, a real achievement for the Marching Lancers. Although many of the band members were disappointed in the outcome, the staff couldn’t be more proud of them. Great job Lancers!
