The Mifflin County High School Marching Band traveled to Williamsport Area High School on Saturday night for the Tournament of Bands (TOB) Susquehanna Valley Region 4 Championship competition. At the end of the night the Marching Huskies had won their fourth consecutive TOB Region 4 title in Group 3-A Class in the last five years (no championship event was held in 2020 due to COVID 19). Berwick High School finished in second place.

MCHS also won the Specialty Awards for Best Music, Best Visual, Best Drum Line and Best Color Guard. Band Director Art Belfiore said, “the band had to rehearse inside today due to the rain but had a great performance even though we could not get out on the field for more than 10-15 minutes. The group is really practicing and performing well over the last two weeks and the quality of performance is a testament to that fact. The students are really looking forward to ACC’s next Sunday.”
