“O'Neal stepped up to fill the shoes of Drum Major Kelsey Hayes who was not able to compete because of illness,” Ashe County High School Husky Vanguard Marching Band Director Carrie Mitchell said. “He answered the call by placing second in the drum major category.”
The Huskies also placed second in the percussion and visual ensemble categories, and second overall in the 1A Division and received a rating of "excellent".
The Huskies were among 22 bands competing in six divisions based on band size, and competed against Polk County High School and Unicoi County High School of Erwin, Tenn.
The Husky Vanguard Marching Band will next compete in the 2013 Carolina Classic Band Festival this Saturday at East Lincoln High School in Denver, N.C.
