Wildcat Marching Band Saddles Up for Competition Season
The Paden City High School Marching Band has enjoyed a successful beginning to the 2021 competition season. This year’s competition show is entitled “Saddle Up” and includes music from John Williams, Ray Charles, and The Eagles.
The band earned gold ratings for the parade, field show, auxiliary, and field commander at the recent Oil and Gas Festival competition.
On September 25th, the band traveled to the Whirlwind Band Competition in Hurricane, WV and received 1st place in class D for auxiliary, overall band, and outstanding soloist. The band was also the Division 2 Grand Champion winner.
The band is excited for the remainder of the season that includes competitions at Parkersburg South, Parkersburg High, WV Marching Band Invitational in Charleston, WV, and a possible trip to the inaugural Governor’s Cup to be held at Phillip Barbour High School. In uncertain times, the band is trying to enjoy each opportunity to perform and thanks the Paden City community and alumni for their continued support.
