SANTO – The Santo band recently marched on Glen Rose for the Region 7, Class 1A marching contest and brought home a Division 1 rating – the highest score in University Interscholastic League band competition.

Twenty-eight Santo students, in grades eight through 12, were judged on their marching style, articulation, or music, and overall entertainment, according to Santo High School’s Heather VanRemmen, who serves as the “band aide.”

For the University Interscholastic League contest, Band Director Tim Riley selected the music and wrote the show, VanRemmen said, which included the tunes “Barbara Ann,” “Margaritaville” and “The Party Rock Anthem.”
