Bad weather doesn't stop band competition

MAHOMET -- The rainy weather didn't stop several high school bands from strutting their stuff.
MAHOMET -- The rainy weather didn't stop several high school bands from strutting their stuff. Ten performed inside Mahomet High School's gym for a competition Saturday. It was supposed to be on the football field.

Because it moved indoors, the bands couldn't do all their formations and movements like planned. But as long as there were fans in the stands, the performers were happy.

"I like just seeing the crowds and that's what brings me back every single year. And the part that I’m going to be marching, this is my fourth year marching. So we get a special prize and a few other things just for bringing a four-year senior," said Unity High School senior Hannah Neaveill.

The bands were awarded trophies based on their performance, and for specific categories like best percussion, best drum major and best auxiliary.
