|The triumphant Pottstown High School Band returns home from the Boyertown Cavalcade of Bands with the first place goods.|
Blogger's Note: The following was submitted by that energizer bunny of perseverance, John Armato, Pottstown's director of community relations.
The Pottstown High School Marching Band took home first place Saturday at the American Open Class of the Boyertown Arlen Saylor Cavalcade of Bands competition.
Their first outing of the season netted a score of 71.6 to take 1st place, and win both the High Percussion and High Auxiliary awards.
Under the direction of David Bonilla-Garcia, the band begins its competitive season strong as they continue towards the Cavalcade of Bands Championships held on Nov. 13 in Hershey.
"All of our students are working hard to develop their skills and perform at the highest level. They are building the foundation for future success," Bonilla-Garcia said.

John also included a link to a YouTube version of Queen's anthem to success, "We Are the Champions," but I will spare you all.
