The school competitive season is just getting underway, but the members of the Bridgewater-Raritan High School Marching Band already have trophies to add to the school's display.
The band headed to Edison for the Sept. 15 season opener, taking first place for Best Visual in the US Bands competition.
That was followed by the Sept. 21 Scotch Plains—Fanwood High School, where the BRHS band picked up first place honors for Best Music, Best Visual and Best Effect.
The band also won the competition's Mayor's Trophy.
"The philosophy of the Bridgewater-Raritan High School Band program is to offer a 'well-rounded' four-year music experience to all students," a press release on the band's achievement noted. "This organization has a history of hard work and dedication and is known for achieving significant accomplishments not only in marching band, but also in their concert band, wind ensemble and jazz bands."
