    This year the Marching Troubadours have competed in three competitions.  Their first competition was the Lake Guntersville Marching Festival Saturday, Oct.1 and the Troubadours earned all superior ratings. 
    In their next competition the Troubadours yet again earned all superior ratings Saturday, Oct. 8 at the Mud Creek Marching Festival in Hanceville.  The band also received Best in Class in four categories: color guard, dance line, percussion and band.  Both the band score average and percussion score were ranked third in the entire contest of 23 bands.
    “I enjoyed Mud Creek because of all the awards that we worked so hard to earn, and there were a lot of awesome bands,” senior band captain Keelon Bunn said.  “I also think it was one of our better shows, and I was very proud of everyone.”
    In their last competition the Troubadours received all superior ratings for the third time this year at the Curry Marching Band Classic Saturday, Oct. 15.  The students also earned Best in Class Dance Line and Best in Class Band.  The band score average was ranked fourth out of 24 bands. 
    “This competition was my favorite because of the competition’s atmosphere,” senior drum major Alex Peete said. “The food was really good, especially the fried Oreos, the bands were awesome and we received our best score there.”
