The Niles West Marching Band was awarded Grand Champion this weekend at the Metamora Marching Band Invitational. They competed amongst 14 bands in the A, AA, and AAA classifications. This is the second year in a row that the marching band has taken this honor and the 3rd time in 5 years. The marching band also won first place in class "AA" while being awarded "best winds" and outstanding percussion. Please support the marching band as they compete at the Lincoln-Way Marching Band Invitational on October 13th. These hard-working students deserve it!
