In what is becoming an annual tradition, Prospect High School Marching Knights took first-place honors among a field of 24 Midwest bands at Saturday's 35th annual Lancer Joust Marching Band Competition at Lake Park High School in Roselle.
Prospect also was honored with the competition's Best Music and Best Visual Performance awards. While Wheeling won best General Effect.
Lake Park's competition is one of the first in the region, and it's modeled after the Bands of America national competition. Many bands that participate move on to compete at the state and national levels.
Bands are rated in seven categories including Individual Performance-Music and Visual; Ensemble Performance-Music and Visual; and General Effect-Music I, Music II and Visual. Percussion and Color Guard performances will also be scored in preliminary rounds.
The event serves as Lake Park's largest fundraiser for its marching band. It's been known to generate about $15,000 for uniforms, instruments and travel expenses.
