The Summit High School Marching Band took fourth place in at Standridge Stadium in Carrollton with its ‘Escape from Plato's Cave' program Saturday in the Tournament of Champions marching competition.
The newly-debuted closing movement with its powerful music, headlamps and surprise costume change by the colorguard was a crowd pleaser.
Summit placed behind Frisco Centennial, Richland and Duncanville who came in third, second and first respectively. Making it to the top five in this competition is a major step for the Summit Band - which placed 10th in the same contest one year ago.
The contest drew a field of 20 bands. Summit's toughest competition came from fellow Class I entries: Arlington High School (6A), Duncanville (6A), Lewisville (6A), Richland (5A), Sherman (5A), McKinney Boyd (6A), McKinney High School (6A), J.J. Pearce (Richardson) (6A), and Centennial (Frisco) (5A).
