Haughton takes 6th place at La. Showcase of Marching Bands


Haughton High School Big Red Buccaneer Band was invited to participate in the Louisiana Showcase of Marching Bands State Championship on November 9, at the University of Louisiana Lafayette, where they moved up this year in class, to compete in the larger Class AAA (Large Class) division.

The past two years they have won State Champions in the Small Class, along with earning spots in the Top 10 Finals. They finished 9th place last year and 6th place in 2011.

Thirty-three bands performed this year, from Class B to AAAA. Each year, high school bands from across Louisiana travel to compete in the event. It provides a great opportunity for bands to perform for large crowds and earn recognition and awards. Haughton is the only school from North Louisiana attending the event.

After their initial performance of their 2013 show “Clocks”, in their class division, they were named as one of the "Top Ten Finalists" among all the bands, to perform again that night for a chance at Grand State Champion.

They later at the completion of  finals earned sixth place among all classes in the state. The other finalists included, East Ascension (10th), Northshore (9th), Destrehan (8th), Terre bonne (7th), St. Amant (5th), Catholic High (4th), Fontainebleau (3rd), Central Lafourche (Reserve Grand State Champion) and Lafayette High (Grand State Champion).

One million dollars down the drain to pay for a special session of the Louisiana legislature. And all for naught. The governor is hollering that the financial sky is falling and the state is in dire fiscal straights. Legislators protest that their hands are tied by too many constitutional dedications.
