Hamilton High School Charger Marching Band finished one of its most successful seasons Oct. 15 by placing third in class AAAA at the Wisconsin Marching Band Championships.
The Chargers were among eight bands in AAAA at the competition held at the University of Wisconsin –Whitewater. The third-place finish equals the band’s highest placement at state championships in 2014 and 2015.
The band’s 2018 field show, “Volcanic Voices,” chronicles the sibling rivalry of Polynesian goddesses Pele, representing fire, and Namaka, signifying water.
Earlier in the season, the band earned its highest overall scores ever for the season’s opening weekend – placing second at Waukesha South High School’s Marchfest and third at the Fox River Invite at Waukesha West High School.
The Charger Band also performed Oct. 9 for the public and Templeton Middle School band students at Grove Field football stadium.
“The band is grateful for the tremendous district, community and parent support which helped to make a successful season,” said Charger Band Director Jon Waite.
