For the fourth year in a row, Air Academy High School’s marching band won the state Colorado Bandmasters Association’s championship in the 4A division.

To celebrate, the marching band performed an encore of its winning numbers during an assembly that started at 2 p.m. Tuesday at the high school, which is on the grounds of the U.S. Air Force Academy. Parents, family and community members attended.

The band took the title during the finals at the state marching festival in Fort Collins over the weekend.

Air Academy also scored the highest overall against all participating bands and swept all three award captions: music, visual and general effect.

In all, marching bands from nine area schools competed in the state championships.

Quarter finalists: Sand Creek High School (4A), Palmer High School (5A); semi-finalists: Pine Creek High School (4A), Fountain/Fort Carson High School (5A).

Three other local high schools placed in the 4A finals, in addition to Air Academy capturing first. Liberty High School won third, Rampart High School came in fourth and Mesa Ridge High School took fifth.
