• THS hosts band competition

During the competition, spectators purchased $1 “Shout Outs” to recognize a favorite band or student. Organizing the shout outs are THS students Brittany Wells, Dylan Lanting, Justin Ross and Kori Penna. Photo by Linda Green.

The pulse of the bass and snare drums kept eight bands in line as they marched onto the football field to compete to be best overall.
The high school marching bands from across the CSRA and from afar performed at the Brickyard as part of The Thomson High School Bulldog Brigade’s first Invitational Marching Band Competition.
Responding to whistle blows, handclaps and signals from drum majors, the eight participating bands, from one, two, three and five A schools, shined as they showed off some of their half-time performances in preliminary and open competition in the midst of sweltering temperatures.
The grand champion of the competition was the marching band of Southeast Bulloch High School in Brooklet, Ga.
Other participating bands were Lincoln County, Washington-Wilkes, Elbert County, Greenbrier, Effingham County, Lakeside (Evans) and Grovetown, which had 20 minutes to enter the field, perform and exit. The Bulldog Brigade presented an exhibition performance prior to the award presentation.
