Congratulations to the Warren Blue Devil Competition Marching Band/Directors/Staff on your successful season! Two 2nd Place finishes and two 1st Place finishes were received, including multiple caption awards! This year’s new model of having a Competition Band and Football Show Band proved to work well for all involved! Please watch an end-of-the-season video on our Band Website:http://www.wthsbands.org/ (courtesy of Mrs. Jenkins). Downers Grove South High School also recorded a video of the final competition performance: DGS Video. Thank you to all parent volunteers who helped with Parade Walking, Meal Crew, Chaperoning, Truck Crew, Uniforms, Pit Crew, and Field Crew. Thank you to the photographers and videographers too!
