UHS band wins at TaxSlayer Bowl

Logo-TaxSlayer-BowlWhile Penn State fans might have been disappointed by the outcome of the TaxSlayer Bowl in Jacksonville, the Unionville High School Marching Band came home with a great deal to brag about.

The band won First Place, overall band and Grand Champions, competing against bands from around the nation, all in town to perform at the nationally-televised college football bowl game. As Grand Champions, Unionville performed prior to the game alone — a special honor for the winner, plus will be bringing home a $10,000 check. Unionville and nine other bands also performed at halftime of the game, featuring Penn State versus Georgia.

The band won the Class A Field Show competition, sweeping all captions in Class A, including High Percussion, High Color Guard, High Drum Major, High Music High Overall Effect and High Visual.

The band was welcomed home with a fire truck salute and escort, Sunday.

See video of band director G. Scott Litzenberg accepting the $10,000 check as well as the pre-game performance.
