Congratulations to the Hicksville High School Marching Band, which started its competitive season in grand fashion! The band recently placed first in the Large School 3 Division of the New York State Field Band Conference competition held on Sept. 15 at Brentwood High School.

During the 2018-19 school year, Hicksville captured third place in New York State in the Large School Class 3 Division at the 45th annual New York State Field Band Conference held at the Syracuse Carrier Dome. According to Hicksville Public Schools Supervisor for Fine Arts Philip Grusenmeyer, the group has grown from 99 members last year to 112 this year.

“Thanks to much hard work over the summer, they seem poised to have a highly successful competition season,” said Grusenmeyer, who also praised director Kerri Barnett for her efforts in her first year leading the band.

Residents can catch the Hicksville High School Marching Band during the annual homecoming celebration, scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 12.
