Springstead Marching Band Headed to Tropicana Field for Semi-Finals, Crowned Grand Champions at Regional

LAKEWOOD RANCH (Manatee) – Clad in their new uniforms, after wearing the same ones that some parents wore 20-years ago, the Springstead High School Marching Band took best in all categories at the Florida Marching Band Championship Regional competition in Manatee County, last evening.

It was a long day of competing that began at Hernando High School, but then it was off to Lakewood Ranch to compete with several other schools at the Music in Motion competition.

The FMBC categories include, music, visual, percussion, band, and color guard performance. Springstead ranked highest in all categories against four schools in the 3-A Division and three schools in 1-A, 2-A, and 4-A, respectively.

It’s now on to the semi-finals at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg on November 18th, and if they rank 5th place or higher, they will move into the finals later that evening.

  • What an accomplishment for the Springstead High School Marching Band. With all of the negative stories on TV and social media it is so refreshing to see our teens that have put so much into making their team the BEST! Everyone should be proud of these students and I wish that I could see more great stories like this. It makes me feel that there are still parents that are teaching their children how to invest their time wisely as opposed to concentrating on things that will not bring them a brighter future. Congratulations to the entire team and to all of the educators and parents who enlighten their children about the “better things in life” to concentrate on! I wish you all the best of luck!!!
