Eagles march to semi-state


“Since June, we have been practicing and running sections and just trying to improve the show,” said Audrey Means, a senior and member of the color guard.

According to Means, during their performance at semi-state, the eagles had to learn how to adjust to heavy winds that made it difficult to perform.

“At some points the wind was so strong that the field judge would try to pull our tarp out to help us, but the wind would mess it up,” said Pierce.

The Marching Eagles were unable to make it through to state finals.

“We brought our A-game that day and did very well given the situation,” Pierce said.

ZCHS Director of Bands Tom Landrum said: “The Marching Eagles put on a great show at semi-state but did not advance to state finals. The band was 1.2 points away from moving on. I am very proud of the hard work and of the heart put into this season by all of the students. The Sorcerer and the Swan was a wonderful show, and I will miss seeing and hearing it performed. This was definitely one of my favorite marching band shows of all my years as a band director, and I enjoyed working with this year’s group of students very much.”

While the Marching Eagles fell short of state finals, the year was still a success, and the members gained a lot.

“We worked really hard this year and made some changes to the show to help us get to state, but we still fell short,” said King.

But the show was a favorite among the senior band and color guard members, and the graduating seniors are happy to leave their legacy behind with this year’s performance.

“This year was my favorite by far,” Pierce said. “We did well and had fun. Being a part of the Marching Eagles is the best decision I made in my high school career.”

Overall, it was a great way to end the season. There were highs and lows, but the Marching Eagles worked hard and put on a great show. While some of the Eagles were disappointed with their finish, most are very proud and content with making it to semi-state.

“It was a good year, and we had a good final run,” King said. “I am extremely proud of the Marching Eagles.”
