In breaking from the norm, the Marching Thorobreds began their competitive season in Ohio, not in Kentucky.
The band attended the Kings High School Invitational, located just north of Cincinnati near Kings Island.
The band finished second in its class, but took awards for best color guard and best general effect in its class.
This competition was part of the Mid-States Band Association (MSBA) marching band circuit.
