San Marcos Marching Band, Colorguard Win Second Straight Competition

The Royals are in first place in the SCSBOA grid standings for all participating 1A bands

The San Marcos High School Marching Band and Colorguard placed first at the Baldwin Park Field Competition on Saturday.

This was a SCSBOA (Southern California School Band and Orchestra Association) event that was split into six divisions. The divisions are based on the size of the participating marching band, with San Marcos competing in the 1A Division.

With a score of 64.3, San Marcos scored the highest in all five major scoring categories. These categories include music, visual, general effect, percussion and auxiliary (colorguard).

This is the second win in as many weeks, after winning the Rowland Heights Field Competition last week. San Marcos is in first place overall in the SCSBOA grid standings for all participating 1A bands.

The San Marcos Marching Band and Colorguard are under the direction of Michael Kiyoi and will compete at Moorpark High School in two weeks.

— Aaron Solis is the activities director for San Marcos High School.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
