On November 2, 2019 the Golden Eagle marching band went to Hilliard Bradley, in Hilliard, Ohio to compete at the OMEA states competition.


The band went their and put on an outstanding performing in front of many people, close to 100, and they were cheered on the entire way as they earned a superior rating.


A superior rating is the highest rating that a band can get and it shows that they had very few errors, and it shows that they have worked very hard since they started at the beginning of the season.


The season for the marching band at Madison-Plains started in June when they started pre-band camp, then they went away to band camp for a week, then they had one final full week of summer in post-band camp.


The band has put in so much work throughout the marching band season putting in a lot of time on basic marching steps, to more complex steps, and the fundamentals in general.


The band also put a lot of work into their visuals, and they have tried their hardest as this marching band season the band qualified for states the earliest the band has ever qualified for her, and a lot of the credit should be given to Renee Hostetler.


She is the band director and she has pushed the band the direction it is today and she will be here for years to come to continue to do great things for the program.
