Castle Marching Knights In The News
CMK named Regional Class Champion for Second Time in School History at Bands of America Clarksville, Tennessee Regional Championships!
On 9/24, the CMK competed in the Bands of America (BOA) Regional Championships held at Austin Peay State University in Clarksville, Tennessee. Twenty of the top marching band programs from Indiana, Missouri, Kentucky, Arkansas, Tennessee, Kansas and Mississippi competed in this Regional Championship.
First competing in preliminary competition on Saturday afternoon, Castle earned the coveted honor of Class 3A Preliminary Champions. The top ten bands advanced to the evening final championships.
At the evening championships, Castle competed against extremely talented programs from such places as Franklin H.S., Tennessee who placed 13th in the nation at last year’s BOA Grand Nationals championships. At the finals award ceremonies, Castle’s final score was enough for Castle to be named Clarksville BOA Regional Champion. This is only the second time in Castle High School history that the Marching Knights have been BOA Regional Champions. The Castle Marching Knights first became BOA Regional Champions in 2014.
Saturday marked the first time in Castle High School history that the Marching Knights were named both the Class 3A Preliminary Champions and the overall Regional Champion in the same day.
