Mighty Viking Band Grand Champions of Appalachian Classic Band Competition

The Tennessee High School Mighty Viking Band (MVB) completed their marching season by bringing home the Grand Champion Award for Class 3A-5A at the Appalachian Classic Band Competition on October 23 at West Ridge High School. The MVB had the highest scores of any band that day and were undefeated within their class.

The MVB won first in class 3A and first place for color guard, percussion, music, general effect and visual ensemble. They also received superior rating and second place for drum major. The MVB finished the 2021 marching competition year undefeated.

“This has been an incredible marching season,” said Tennessee High Band Director David Semones. “They are a remarkable group of students. They have accomplished so much. The senior class members were outstanding leaders. This year they have battled through adversity, tragedy and brought great Viking pride to our school and community. I am beyond proud of them.”

“Our band students, directors and parents are second-to-none,” said Tennessee High Principal Kim Kirk. “As evidenced by an undefeated band season, their hard work and dedication to excellence has paid off in every competition and each time they have performed this year. Viking Nation could not be more proud of them, and they have so much to celebrate.”

The MVB was sponsored this year by Shoun Trucking.

“I want to thank Shoun trucking for taking us to every competition,” Semones said. “We could not have accomplished so much without their generosity. I also want to thank the band boosters, board, parents and the school district for all their support. After missing a year of competition, I think our students, fans and community were reminded of how much joy and entertainment our band brings. We are looking forward to supporting our football team and community once more this Friday for senior night.”
