MASON (FOX19) -- The Mason High School band finished sixth in the nation at a competition last week in Indianapolis.
The band competed against nearly 100 top bands from across the country at the 2013 Bands of America Grand National Championships Nov. 14-16 in Indianapolis.
Performing this year’s wedding-themed show, “Til Death Do Us Part,” complete with 50 life-sized, inflatable grooms, the band earned its highest BOA score in program history (92.9) and its best finish – sixth in the nation.
Mason also retained its title as Ohio’s top-finishing band for the third straight year.
Seniors, including percussionist Jacob Burris, remember that fraction of a point that kept the band from qualifying for finals in 2010.
"A spark ignited within the group and we knew that we could do better," he said.
