Pride superior again


The Pride of Tallassee scored straight Superior ratings for the second weekend in a row at the Southeastern States Marching Band Festival, held on the campus of Troy University.  The contest, sponsored by Charles Henderson High School, is one of the oldest in the state, and Tallassee has appeared there on many occasions dating back to the early 1970s. 

Tallassee competed in Class 3A at Alexander City last weekend, where they earned straight Superior ratings and Best in Class Majorettes (for the 46th consecutive year!), and in class 2A at Troy this weekend.  The "Pride of Tallassee" is one of the largest bands in the River Region, and in 78 years of history, has a long tradition of excellence.
