The Hancock County High School Marching Band’s last competition was at McLean County on Saturday evening, October 8 and they won First Place in Class A, Best Color Guard, Best Percussion and Overall Grand Champion! Congratulations HCHS Marching Band students!

HCHS Band Director Zachary Buskill said the students did very well and that their outstanding win of Overall Grand Champion at the competition, they earned by achieving the highest score out of all of the bands in all classes. “That’s the first time they’ve won that award, since I’ve been here (since 2017),” he said.

This coming Saturday, October 22 they will have their Regional Competition for All Class 2A Marching Bands on the west side of the state at Warren East High School. “There will be 10 bands competing that are in Class 2A in West Kentucky,” Buskill said. “The top 6 of those 10 bands will be picked to move on to the Semi-Finals on the following weekend, Saturday, October 29.”

The Semi-Finals will be on the morning of Saturday, October 29 at Bryant Station High School and the State Championships will be that same evening at Eastern Kentucky University. There will be 6 bands from the west and 6 from the east to make 12 bands total. The top 6 of those 12 will move on to the finals for the Championship that evening.
