The Midway High School band attended the Baker University marching competition on October 15. The band includes students from grades 8-12. They performed “Born This Way,” by Lady Gaga, “Crazy in Love” by Beyoncé, and “Firework,” by Katy Perry. They also performed a percussion break in between songs written by senior John Allin.

Overall, the band received a 2 rating from the judges. This is the second best score they have received in seven years of attending this competition. Drum majors are senior Jackson Eberle and sophomore Gina Smith. They are under the direction of Tracy Smith. Smith said, “They represented us very well, and I received many compliments from those watching, including the judges.” Afterwards, the band celebrated at Burger King as per their annual lunch tradition.
