Win Streak Continues for San Marcos Marching Band

Royals score two first-place awards in Oxnard High competition

The San Marcos High School Marching Band won another competition Saturday at the Oxnard High School Band Competition.

The Royals received first place for band and first place for Auxiliary (color guard) while defeating all 1A-, 2A- and 3A-sized marching bands — more than 20 bands in all.

“As a member of the band, I see the show everyday so when we get into a performance situation the band tends to get down on itself for show flaws,” Drum Major Preston Nunez said. “However, we put on a great show, and we were pleased with the results. Despite the excitement and fun, we have to get down to business this week because we have another competition very soon.”

Nunez also credited Front Ensemble instructor Perry Brooks, a former band member and San Marcos alumnus.

“She is a lifesaver for the band by being there when we need her and going above and beyond for the band,” Nunez said.

The Royals will compete in this Saturday’s Moorpark High School Band Competition.

— 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!
