The competition consisted of prelims during the day and finals in the evening at the WSU Wildcat Stadium. Drumlines from around the state prepared two different cadences (short musical segments for drumline performances) to present to the audience, complete with visuals (to "work the crowd"). After the three finalists each performed their cadences, a panel of professional music educators and percussionists crowned Maple Mountain's drumline the winner!

Our MMHS Welding Fabrication Team went to the SkillsUSA National Leadership and Skills Conference over the summer to represent our state for the second year in a row. The team consisted of Josh Jensen, Michael Swanson, and Chandler Schramm. They traveled to Kansas City, MO to face off against the top 35 fabrication teams in the country. The boys executed well and took 4th place! If you see these young men, congratulate them on a job well done.
