2nd PLACE at the 2023 SJ Region I Championships!
We are so proud of what this group is accomplishing. They are truly elite performers. Our score of 95.60 makes the WDMB the 2nd highest score out of the 126 bands in TOB. That is amazing!
Thank you to everyone who came out to support us in the stands and on the field. Windy conditions continue to follow us everywhere, but our amazing staff and volunteers helped us steady The Machine gears.
Looking forward, we are down to our final 2 weeks of competition. This week we head into the NJ State championships. Next week we roll into Hershey, Pennsylvania for the TOB Atlantic Coast Championships (ACCs).
This week we have another opportunity to go head to head with several great competitors. We are working hard to close the gaps and make THE MACHINE as strong as possible. Every rehearsal is critical as we fine tune and dial in the final details of our show. Thank you for making sure your child with on time and prepared for every event.
