It couldn’t have been scripted any better for the Elizabethton High School Betsy Band.
A sea of black and orange awaited the group Sunday, Nov. 6, as the band left Stewarts Creek High School in Smyrna as Division II state champions. Along with securing their fourth state title in seven years, the Color Guard earned its second consecutive Best in State nod while percussion also finished Best in State.
The Elizabethton High School Betsy Band was named the “Grand Champion” at Science Hill High School’s “Hilltopper Invitational” on Saturday for their show titled “Under Construction, the Road that Leads Home.” The win comes on the heels of another top-place finish at Farragut High School in Knoxville last Saturday.
In addition to the top-place finish for class 3A/4A, the Betsy Band, directed by drum major Grace Roberts, also was awarded first place for visual and second for music. In class 4A, they placed first overall and in guard. Percussion placed second. Competition in class 3A included Morristown West, Sullivan Central and Carter high schools. Jefferson County and Sullivan South competed against Elizabethton in class 4A.
