The Cape Girardeau Central High School marching band won first place Saturday in the Washington, Mo., band festival.
The Tigers marching band beat out Troy Buchanan High School from Lincoln County and Rolla High School from Phelps County to win the top spot, said Debbie Lusk, a band parent and teacher at Central High School.
Band members also won first place in the drum line competition as well as the auxiliary competition, which includes the color guard, Lusk said.
The band will go on to an Oct. 29 competition at the Edward D. Jones Dome in St. Louis with renewed confidence, Lusk said.
There are approximately 80 members in the band, Lusk said.
