Wow!!! Second place. Sure thought we would be third. Just did beat a very good band from Ohio. As usual Cabell Midland was first, and I have to say they were the best there. Anyway, congrats to our band!!!

and as usual, Cabell used microphones and a guitar.......... they also had their drumline play while the band did movement without playing their instuments.......... not cool!

Wow. All within the rules. Sore losers. I guess they don't teach sportsmanship down there. And for the record, Everyone plays and marches. It was simply a superior, dominating performance.

Hey no way, give credit where credit due. Princeton was very good but judges gave Midland a higher score. Therefore they won. Don't stoop to saying negative things. Just be a proud Tiger fan.

Cheater Midland bought their show, as they do every year. They are not better, they just have more money. Of course you're going to win when you buy your way to the top. Also, where do you suppose the judges were from? Hmmmmm....CMHS alumni perhaps??????

Let's see, proud tiger mom, I guess those kids did not play their own instruments, nor did they march. It was all stand in people they bought. Beaver Creek was better than Princeton. Yes Cabell won so get over it. Something called playing level 5 music versus level 2, a much more difficult routine, and yes, better choreography, as well as better execution is what the judges saw. Don't like the judging, feel free to stay away next year.

This whole thread was started by Cabel Midland. Come on Princeton, you know how those people are over there. Be the bigger person and ignore their childish thread. NO ONE is better than Kade. We've got her, they don't. Nuff said.

Yes, please keep her. The thread was by one of your fans trying to say something nice and then there was your response. Enough said.

Ms. Kade is the best!!! These kids start in early summer and she pushes them because she knows that they can do it! As a mothet of a former band member, I have seen this first hand. Because of Ms. Kade my child is pursuing a degree in Music. If this band wasn't good then they would not be Grand Champions! Some people need to check out the band instrument trailer sometime.:). PSHS is a family and it is great! Some bands in the competitions can't win without an "edge" but PSHS does it within the rules and regulations. I am proud of the kids and we as a community should be too!

Edge? As in talent, yes, an edge. Otherwise any other band would be disqualified. There were no disqualifications, so all played within the rules.

Well where do I begin "Judge"? First of all, I have never seen CM kids play AND march at the same time! These are afterall MARCHING BAND competitions. I agree, Beaver Creek was excellent, not so with Cabell. As far as those kids playing level 5 as opposed to level 2, you are the one who needs to get your facts straight. PSHS played level 6 for their 1st and 3rd pieces. So if you are going to come back with a response, be sure you know what you're talking about.

Proud Tiger Mom, level 6, quite a stretch. Lets see CM played and marched at least 8 of their 10 minute routine. And, see judges results for further evidence. And, proud tiger mom, CM got best marching as well. Anyone can, or should be able to, March in slow, boring straight lines. Get your facts straight. CM was better this year, perhaps Princeton will be next year.

As a former band parent I must add my two cents. Who won the competition is irrelevant in the big picture. What the Princeton kids carry with them through their lives from the things they learn from Julia Kade other than marching and playing an instrument are priceless compared to winning a competition.

Everyone has their opinion, and Princeton will always be the best :)

First let me say I am a Pikeview parent with no connection to Princeton. I don't know what show you were watching but Princeton marched in many formations not only in straight lines! I happen to know that the one of the judges wrote Cabels field show, now is that fair?

Absolutely untrue. The field show has changed each week. Maybe if Ms. Made is so great she can teach you all to lose with dignity.

Even if show was written by one of the judges, the kids still had to execute it and impress all the judges. They did that. Do us all a favor and don't come next year.

Cabell was terrible and everyone knows it. So, I guess we'll settle this on November 3, Cabell. Good luck; you're gonna need it ;)
