EHS Marching Tigers Are Class Champions, 5th Overall

It was a pair of firsts for the EHS Marching Tigers last weekend at the Illinois State Marching Band Championships at Illinois State University. For the first time in school history, the Tigers were named class champions in 5A and were also awarded high music achievement… and then in the finals, they finished in a tie for fifth place overall out of the 42 teams competing – marking the best finish in school history.

Band Director Ryan Lipscomb, junior drum major Jaden Hernandez and senior tenor drummer Ry Montgomery talk about the performance.
