San Marcos took 1st place in Auxiliary and Color Guard, while taking the sweepstakes award in Band, General Effect, High Visual, and Percussion. Drum Major Preston Nunez said after the win, “We were very pleased to perform well again and we are very excited for our next competition.” San Marcos will now head to the Moorpark High School Marching Band Competition in November.

Nunez was especially excited for the Percussion group victory. “They have been putting in a lot of time and energy and it has been paying off. Coach has been doing a fantastic job with them,“ he said.

The Percussion group is coached by Colby Beers, who is a former member of the nationally recognized Blue Devils professional drum corps and has won many awards during his time as a member of various groups over the years.
