Your Loy Norrix Marching Knights traveled to Otsego High School this past Saturday to participate in their first Marching Band Competition of the season.  Not only did they have a terrific performance, but they broke the 80 point barrier, out of 100! Their final score of 81.8 is far higher than anyone anticipated, and right on the heels of programs that have decades of competitive experience. This is the first competition the band has participated in since at least 2003.  We’re so proud of our Loy Norrix Marching Knights!
